‘Dreamlands’ Commissioned Artists: Joaquim Cofreces (Argentina) Michael McHugh (UK) Gregory Whitehead (USA) can be heard on:
Dream-Land, written in 1844, is one of Edgar Allan Poe’s more obscure and enigmatic poems, and encourages a wide range of interpretations. It tells the story of a journey, moving through landscapes of oceans, valleys, caves, and forests, and beyond the borders of space and time. Argentinian producer, Joaquin Cófreces,takes Poe’s poem as a point of departure and creates his own radio workDreamland. Dreamland uses text from Poe’s Dream-Land, which is read by women from fifteen different places in the world. The work moves through real places and imaginary sound ambiences, allowing the listener to create their own tale and their own experience of the original poem and radio art work.
