Launching a new digital project that distills DARKFIELD's signature audio experiences into an intense and communal home encounter, Realscape Productions and DARKFIELD announce DOUBLE.

DOUBLE is the first broadcast on Darkfield Radio, taking their innovative audio experiences to audiences at home.

As with all DARKFIELD experiences, a strange world is built from 360 degree binaural sound that perplexes the senses, deepening the immersion by casting doubt on what is real and what is imagined.

For the first show, all you need is a mobile device, headphones - and a friend.

DARKFIELD RADIO is a new project that delivers immersive audio experiences to audiences at home.These experiences will be available through Darkfield Radio App - powered by Wiretapper - available on iOS and Android mobile devices.

Over-ear headphones are recommended for the best experience.

Audiences will be instructed to sit opposite each other on either side of a kitchen table. Pairs of participants will be replicated in hundreds of rooms across Australia, listening to a simultaneous broadcast over 20 minutes.

There is only one rule: everyone has to be who they say they are.

DOUBLE is a troubling exercise in familiarity that explores the Capgras delusion, a condition in which the sufferer is convinced that a loved one has been replaced by an exact replica with malign intentions.

As the neuroscientist Anil Seth once said: “Reality is just an hallucination that we can all agree on.”

As the pandemic continues to cause closures impacting the Arts Industry across the globe, introducing DARKFIELD Radio was a logical next step for UK Creators David Rosenberg and Glen Neath (Darkfield).
