The Da-Dark Outside this weekend

The Da-Dark Outside, a 24+ hour radio broadcast of recordings that have never been heard before, was scheduled to occur this spring from Kurt Schwitter’s Merz Barn in Langdale, Cumbria. Instead, for the first time ever, the Dark Outside will broadcast online starting tomorrow at 12pm UK (6am CST). There will be no tracklist, no listen again function, no archive. It’s playing once only. Go outside, far away from anyone else, and listen for as long as you can. See if you can figure out which piece (it’s called “MerzBowHaus”) is mine. Link for the broadcast + alphabetical listing of participating artists is here (Cosey Fanni Tutti!? Amazing).

Lagniappe: I made this image months ago, but I’m happy to have accidentally socially distanced us all.
