Station stories is a site specific, live, audio dramatic event using digital technology and improvised electronic sound. The sound works were in the form of live performances at Manchester Piccadilly Station to a private audience via headphones. I supplied the sonic elements of the works and six writers provided stories relevant to the situation of the railway station. The audience were taken on an audio journeys of conspiracy, murder, love and revenge that related to their actual presence in a railway station. The various stories led the audience from platform to platform, café to café and shop to shop intermixing concrete reality with fiction and creative soundscape.
The published and award winning writers involved in the project with me were: David Gaffney, Jenn Ashworth, Nicholas Royle, Peter Wild, Tom Jenks and Tom Fletcher.
Station Stories took place on the 19th, 20th, 21st of May 2011, 3 times a day.
