For the last 5 years DARKFIELD have been making immersive audio performances for audiences in complete darkness. These experiences have been built into shipping containers and toured around the world. DARKFIELD RADIO is their new project, bringing their pioneering shows directly into your homes. All you need is a smart phone and a pair of headphones.
There are 3 audio experiences currently available on the DARKFIELD RADIO App:
DOUBLE is a troubling exercise in familiarity for two people sitting opposite each other on either side of a kitchen table, replicated in hundreds of rooms all across the world over 20 minutes. DOUBLE explores the Capgras delusion, a terrifying condition in which the sufferer is convinced that a loved one has been replaced by an exact replica with malign intentions.

A dead couple look for a temporary solution to their permanent condition.
VISITORS is a 20 minute immersive audio experience for two people to experience together opposite one another in their living room in their home. It is a reflection on our irrepressible desire to touch and why the dead find so little comfort in the world of the living. We require you to remain 3 metres apart, and while you may yearn to reach across the chasm that separates you, we ask you be careful who else you invite in.
You have been chosen and we thank you for your sacrifice.
In return we offer you the opportunity for eternal life - but there are conditions.
You could, of course, wait to see what the future might bring. You could take your chances on a cure for mortality. The cure is coming - but it is notcoming fast enough for you.
ETERNAL is a 20 minute immersive audio experience for one person, alone in their bed. It explores the quandary of eternal life and wonders what price you would settle for to achieve it. ETERNAL was commissioned by the 2020 Bram Stoker Festival, Dublin.
The DARKFIELD RADIO app is free to download from the App store or Google Play Store. Purchase codes from their website and simply enter the code into the app. Your show will automatically start at the selected time.
