Glasgow based writer & artists Hannah Ellul gives us a slighty different edit of the beautiful and strange piece she recorded for Mark Vernon & Barry Burns's Radiophrenia in 2019. A slow moving thing that seems to stretch out time.
"If I were to tell you how I arrived here, I would have to explain the voicemails. The voicemails have been in the back of my mind for some time. They had accumulated over several years, in fits and starts. A waxing and waning of words spoken into the void. For months, I watched them arrive but I did not listen to them. When I eventually did hear the messages, certain things were immediately clear. The condition of his lungs was deteriorating. His breathing was laboured. The messages had never been easy to follow. They were often slurred, because of the drink. But now when he spoke his words were interrupted by coughing fits, more and more so as time went on. By groans and gasps. Belly-speech. Gurgles of outflow." - Hannah Ellul
