A British workshop wins Infocult's heart with its offer to explore "Retro-death-telegraphy". It's "an experimental laboratory for the construction of equipment to test theories of communication with the Unknown".
The laboratory will work through early wireless telegraphy instruments from coherer's to crystal sets to spasmodic arrangements of rocks and electronics. Participants will experiment and build devices using galena, germanium, copper, electronic circuits, and television sets. These will act as primitive transmitters and receivers. The sounds and images emitted from them will be projected into the room and recorded.
During the evening the participants are invited to join a séance to test the theories of EVP and other supposed supernatural phenomenon to see if anything happens. The séance will form one of the live performances for a small evening concert (full info to come soon).
