I was going to post my voice notes that I made to capture a tone I needed in the work I am making but actually, I dont want to share these with anyone until I am ready so I am not posting them all but Ill post one.
Im using my voice notes to try and process my feelings
Ive been writing the new draft of the script which currently is aweful but slowly is coming togther. I definitely think writing in an episodic way will let me get a better idea of the pacing and how to do the story.
anyway have a read
Sepp : Hey…looks like it’s just us.
June : Looks like it (giggles)
Sepp : Did you enjoy the ceremony?
June : Hahha fuck no… these traditional meetings feel empty to me especially as they never include me.
Sepp : Yeah…I know…they are wrong for that…you should definitely be front and center
June : front and center? I don’t think I want to be verified to that extent.
Sepp : well Maybe It would make me pay attention a little more …closely
June: ….oh and why would that make you pay a little more attention
Their bodies are closer now, almost touching. Almost breathing on each other.
The sky cracks in half as the long forgotten voice of a lost GOD returns to earth.
The air began to resonate as it shifted through the atmosphere of carbon nitrogen and oxygen. The make up of life changed unbeknownst to anyone.
June : What the fuck was that?
Sepp : (covering her head) Jesus sounds like the whole sky exploded.
June is already running to a window. There are a lot of murmurs in the bar.
June looks out the window but sees nothing
A few others who were in the room have also run to the window.
No one says anything as they stare transfixed outside.
Sepp : (after catching up) Do you see anything?
Sepp comes close to them and holds their arm. It’s the first time they have touched all evening
June : (wrapping her arm under the waist of Sepp) No…but I feel like…(they look at Sepp and notice the anxiety on their face)…Hey are you ok?
The air was charged. Like a thick soup of static. As the voice wrapped itself around the planet and began to touch the ground the static rose on the skin of their backs.
June’s hair was floating as though she was submerged in water.
Everyone looked at her but their hair remained normal.
A buzzing sound could faity be heard.
June : It feels like I’m surrounded by electricity (they stop and listen)…can you..(they listen again)…do you hear something?
The buzzing sound gets louder.
Sepp : Let’s get away from the window.
The buzzing sound can be heard by everyone now. Although it had begun as an auditory experience, its frequency had begun to resonate within their bodies.
June sinks to the floor feeling a wave of nausea as their organs shake with the sound
June : Sepp I…I…
A pulse shook through the ground.
Sepp falls to the ground beside june.
The two bury their heads into each other’s shoulders.
They scream in unison as they expect the building they are in to fall in on them.
And then suddenly
June: Are you still here…
Sepp: I’m with you…im with you
Their heads rise to meet each others gaze.
They are only an inch apart
The other members in the room are all standing against the walls as if the pulse had not been felt by them.
Their gaze fixed on the two holding on to each other
They watch them in silence.
June : Sepp…
Sepp leans in whispering
Sepp : Don’t leave me tonight
A radio is playing in a bedroom with june asleep in bed.
Whats more sensible religion or atheism
Radio : ….and surely No one was able to sleep in such a painfully traumatic freak weather event, a phase of extraordinary awe full weather.
Call in person: I called the next morning as I was due to go into surgery and now I’ve been told I need to rebook, and rebook means I loose 100 percent of the amount we paid for…
Radio Host: …but you surely know that they don’t want to operate on you if this could happen again…it is disgusting however that you have to repay for…
Call in person : My surgery is life saving…there is no other date…I don’t have that time….unless i go to a private surgery…which is what we have to do now and that’s going to cost me everything, I want to go to small claims….
Radio : look if you went to the hearing I am not sure you would win I’m afraid and that’s all the time we have for you… our next caller says they have some background info into this freak weather….Hi Lady Da
Call in perso :…Don’t say it…not you…not yet not every…
Radio Host :…okay
Lady Da : The Fabric of The earth has changed
Radio Host : oh hear we go
Lady Da: from small wood to the largest group It will grow and those that don’t grow with it….wont grow at all
Radio Host : ok….so Sometime we get people like you and I am half tourn if we give you air time or not…i mean the rating love…..
Sepp walks into the room fully dressed
Sepp : Hey wake up….we overslept
June : mmmmmmmmhmm…
Sepp : Get up please I need to go now
June : Just go without me….i leave later
Sepp : No I don’t want to do that June
June : Ugh why not….
Sepp : Did you forget my name….
June : (June blushed) …There were a lot of names at the ceremony…and I was talking more to your other ….lips…
Sepp : Oh….Shut up (giggle) look we have to go right now…I’m sorry you need to leave
June : What tine is it
Sepp : Go
June : (annoyed) What? Ok why are your being so rude…what’s going on.

June gets up and starts to put on clothes

Sepp looks outside the window
Sepp looks through the window
June : If you wanted to try it why did you have to do it with ne…COME ON JUNE
Sepp : June…
June : I want you to listen…This is
Sepp opens the curtains
The vision of a inverted atmosphere meets them
June : HOLY FUCK…..
Sepp : Do you feel that?
June : That pull?
Sepp : What…No…It’s like a
June : WHy is the sun….Black
The door slams shut and footsteps approach the door
June is on their way to the bus stop. It’s busy, everyone is outside. All work and schools have been shut due to the dangerous weather.
June is on the phone with a cordless headset
It’s very early
It calls and first goes to voice mail
June : Ah fuck come o pick up
No one picks up.
June : Alone again…what the fuck did you expects…you deserve
The phone rings
June : hello
Pussydon (through the phone): …hey are you ok…its 5 in the morning…
June : its an emergency…
Pussydon :…ummm….What do you neeed?
June : I mean…ok there are two
Pussydon : Bitch you know Ive just gotten up and the only emergency I can think is about you late night date with the Lady from the ceremony

Pussydon: I need you to come here
Pussydon: Look when you come illl explain
->go to Pussydon’s
->go to Pussydons
On the way to Pussydons june listens to the ending of the radio show
What is more sensible- a show that discusses the reason why one way of living may be more sensible then another.
The current discussion is weather it is healthier to believe in spiritual significance or if logical thinking is a healthy approach to unexplained supernatural phenomenon
Around 2 mind into it they leave the bus and take off their head phones and walk towards Pussydons house
They turn the corners and walk towards
There is a bunch of people outside of the house of pussydon
June takes her headphones off
The crowd are visibility animated and pointing down the road
Following their finger it seems as though they were pinting to wards the trees in the distance
The trees linger in the distance staring back
A light glow can be seen in the forest
As though a fire burnt in the branches
June reaches the group
June : Hey…hey…what’s going on?
Random people : we are going now….you know….you know…ok
Pussydon watches them leave eyes locked on
Something else had been left in their place that seems so much bigger
June: what’s that all about…
Pussydon: We gotta go…walk and talk
June:…what’s up girl
Pussydon: I mean I don’t know how to say it…something is in the forest
Pussydon: soemthing that wasn’t there but is now
June: You’re being way too cryptic
Scene starts with a radio show presenting the facts of the day
The sound of a scene of commotion can be heard over the commentator who are processing the scene. Sirens and shouts often pierce the reporters voice. They are having a hard time dealing with it and keeping a composure (when an Abuser makes you act as though nothing is happening)
Reporter: I am reporting from the edge of the forest which id being coordined off as I speak. (Hard swallow) For the good of us…for our good I am told to say that…everything is fine. Some of my early panicked news reports were my fault…its my fault…i am sorry….sorry…illl do better… (muffles)
It’s believed that there could be some form of contaminate in within the forest. Something that wasn’t there before, somethings that should not be there….
My co-star REVEN Gnorw will report from the helicopter. Hi REVEN…what are you skiing
The loud sound of the helicopter fights with the reporter
Raven : Hey all, looking from above we have a visual on something obscured by the trees. It’s glowing its…oh god I wish you could explain this to me…they are slowly cutting away the branches and….revealing more of it and….its….
Hi my name is Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley. Welcome to my studio of tech goodness. I would definitely consider myself someone that is lost in the sea of tech often trying to discover how to use the mediums within technology to record the lives of people like me.
Interactive art is my thing, I like to make the audience have to work in order to get into the art. For the work to give something to them, they will have to give a part of themselves. So all things gaming to code to different ways of interaction seem to draw me into a web of ideas that often begin a project.
My practice began on seeing a poster of a woman called Mary Jones, in which she was labeled the “MAN MONSTER”. This violence in the archiving of someone we would now call Trans motivated me to use my practice as a means of Archiving those in my community that are here in the present.
So if you’re interested to see the tech nerd palace i am building please have a look around here.
