On Saturday 20th September Langham Research Centre and Peter Blegvad presented a live broadcast for BBC Radio 3 from Broadcasting House. Eschatology is a radiophonic drama about the end of the world, witnessed from a liner adrift on a deserted ocean.
Written and narrated by Peter Blegvad, the last survivors are played by Harriet Walters and Guy Paul. Susan Rae delivers updates on the apocalypse as it spreads around the planet.
Music and sound effects are composed and performed by Langham Research Centre, using vintage electronic instruments and tape machines.
Eschatology is a poetic exploration of the end of everything: of land where we take to ships, of radio contact when white noise fills the receiver; of individual sounds as they echo into space.
