Is every house haunted?

Ralph Kinsella, 30

Is every house haunted, by both its past and future?

My sound-work ‘Elli’s Empty Flat’ is between experimentalism, pop and folk. I’m interested in sustaining atmospherics across genres. Through dislocated contexts I hope echo and in some way represent feelings of emotional interiority and rural dislocation.

The resultant composition denotes a sort-of circumambience, of locus and the noise swelling inside us. A material space and inner space through which something other returns, a lingering and murmuring re-visitation of haunting particularities.
