Visual artist and composer Tom White is a specialist in brutal yet sensitive reel-to-reel tape manipulations. Ben Knight works as a performing artist and musician in the deep universe of the voice and as such researches its inner potential for individual transmutation.
Both of them are part of the British new wave of avant-garde aesthetics and radical thinking. In 2016 the experimental radio platform Radiophrenia commissioned them for a piece which resulted in a fictional social-science narrative, presented in a series of minor narrative episodes, film and props, to reflect on the everyday listening events within and around a drop-in centre for refugees in Manchester.
