Imagine what it would be like to tune around your city as an audiovisual landscape.
Niall Moody has released an interesting mixed media project called Mount Pleasant Drive. Defined by the creator as a "broken audiovisual radio", you tune among sometimes dissonant, sometimes wonderfully harmonious sounds derived from the software itself, and a collage of acid-washed images shot around Glasgow gently hazes and shimmers before your eyes.
I've never been to Glasgow, but a location-specific audiovisual space genuinely appeals to me as a concept. If you could generate soundscapes solely out of images of your town, what would it be like? Mount Pleasant Radio makes it easy to engage in the fantasy of some staticky, magic old dial that you turn to get from place to place, from memory to memory, from the soul of one city to the next.
