Pressures of the Unspeakable (Audio)

Jan 01, 1991
Created by Gregory Whitehead
Over the course of several weeks, Whitehead, as "Resident Director of the International Institute for Screamscape Studies" established a Scream Room at the Australian Broadcasting Company and a National Scream Line answering machine, where screams were collected. The resulting work for broadcast combines selections from participating screamers, in counterpoint with notes and ruminations on the fundamentals of scream discourse. Together they map a journey into the vast territories of the Australian screamscape. Produced for The Listening Room, Australian Broadcasting Corporation. Winner of the 1992 Prix Italia.
