A commission from Barbican Centre, I produced the music, am one of the voices featured, performed and co-filmed the video. Exploring connectivity. How we can talk to one another through a blue screen. Grieving what we lost during the pandemic while treasuring togetherness and queer digital worlds. Missing touch. To make something that felt tactile and ASMR-y that helped people to feel the clubspace and cross distance. We painted ourselves blue in different flats. The laughter that you hear is Disa (aka Mandisa) when I last went to their house before the pandemic. Our breath became part of the drumline, with frying sounds from a hangover breakfast. We can’t recreate these things at home, but we can sample ourselves to play memories back and hold space for feeling disconnected, and less of ourselves in this time. Evaporating and returning. Just as these absences and digital adaptations of self can feel like a disappearance, they also bring us back to ourselves.
