An Ataireachd Ard / Celestial Radio

October 2016

Only available in English for now

A radio station on board a glittering, mirror-tiled yacht Celestial Radio transmits light and sound, broadcasting over the airwaves on 87.7FM. A flickering sequence: on, off, on, off, a vibrating movement like the patterns of a wave form or a blinking signal, the moment you begin to listen and make the journey the work starts to exist.

Celestial Skye’ is a site-specific broadcast in which artists Zöe Walker and Neil Bromwich take us on an epic journey through time and across Skye, Raasay and Rona. Exploring the continuing significance of people who are no longer here, weaving in voices of the present to reflect on island life today.
