Thought Residency
November 2017
available to listen to online

Team MAYK: “Some colleagues in Canada do this thing called Thought Residencies. We talked to them about us trying it out in the UK. Do you want to do a Thought Residency? No pressure.”

Team Sleepdogs: “Er, ok. Why not? Sure.”

We’ve been recording occasional, brief thoughts over November. Check out the sound files here.

The Verb
BBC Radio 3, Friday 1 December, 10pm
(then available on BBC iPlayer)

It’s Tim’s third appearance on The Verb and he gets to be on with Margaret Cho, who is just too damn cool. Tim’s been commissioned to make a new short sound and text piece to perform live on the show. He’ll also be talking general wordz and chatz out of his face.

Jubilee
adapted and directed by Chris Goode
[sound design by Timothy X Atack]
Lyric Hammersmith, 15 February – 10 March 2018

Derek Jarman’s iconic film captured punk at its giddy height: a riot of music, DIY fashion, and every kind of sex – with a little pyromania thrown in. Now, forty years on, this new stage adaptation of Jubilee remixes it for the social and political turmoil of 2017. Centred around a marauding girl gang on a killing spree and a time-travelling Queen Elizabeth I, it’s a story of what happens when creativity and nihilism collide.
