As well as the limited cassette release of Two Knocks For Yes on Castles in Space, I'll also be performing the piece live (as black channels) in a pre-Halloween event (also called Two Knocks For Yes) in Brighton on the 23rd October at Saint Andrews Church, Waterloo Street. Get tickets here.
Shrouded in secrecy, Two Knocks For Yes will incorporate talks, music, theatre and photography.
"In every story of things that go bump in the night, there are two possibilities. One, that it's a hoax. Two, that there is something going on beyond the grasp of the human mind".
And so begins black channels' radiophonic exploration in to the poltergeist phenomenon that forms part of this evenings immersive entertainment, alongside a talk on the folklore of death and water by James Burt, ghost stories and archive video footage, all hosted by paranormal enthusiast, Curtis James.
Real life reports of paranormal activity, otherworldly vibrations and oscillations, chilling accounts of nocturnal visitations and strange activity in the most mundane of suburban surroundings will echo around the 19th Century stone walls of Saint Andrews Church, Brighton. There are tales of hauntings in the venue itself (no longer used for worship), and it is certainly true that the burial vaults beneath the pews have yet to be removed.
