Created and originally streamed through summer 2020, The Dark Alchemy Inner Circle collaborative podcasts is a three part series of audio collages featuring a seamless combination of music, sound, field recordings and spoken word. Human fragility and tenderness entwine, inviting the listener to take individual comfort and solace in the emotive power of sound and music.
Made possible by Arts Council Emergency Funding, the series was edited, mixed and produced by Marcus Dyer aka Theskyisthinaspaperhere. It features contributions from artists within the Dark Alchemy circle.
Inner Circle was streamed as part of a series of live online events through 2020, available to watch again here: Show 1, Show 2, Show 3 & Show 4. It was featured in Bristol 247, as part of their creative lockdown series and part broadcast on Resonance Extra, as part of Unexplained Sounds Recognition Test show; the latter also lead to it being featured in their 6th annual report.
To conclude the lockdown series a Dark Alchemy Inner Circle compilation ‘mixtape’ V/A was also compiled.
