Horse Whisperer radio play @ west den haag
‘you would sound much more convincing if you spoke as if you cared‘ is a new experimental radio play by composer Max Syedtollan AKA Horse Whisperer, and writer/performer Anna Danielewicz. The work was originally commissioned by Soundart Radio with support from the Arts Council. From Friday 7th August, this piece will exist on the West den Haag website as part of their curated series ‘Thuistezien’, which has brought works across visual art and music to audiences during lockdown.
The piece is a satirical non-adaptation of Ayn Rand’s novel ‘The Fountainhead‘ – a text neither of the artist bothered reading before turning it into this possibly misguided attempt at radio critique. Nonetheless, here it is – replete with DIY sonic scenography, desperately hokey voice acting and an ever shifting soundtrack taking in everything from insipid lounge jazz to synth laden atonal spasms.
