The Caretaker is a long-running project by electronic musician James Leyland Kirby, inspired by the ballroom scene from The Shining. Tonight we will listen to selections from one of the final works by The Caretkaer, "Everywhere at the end of time," which was released in six parts from 2016 to 2019. This six plus hour peice will be condensed down to a two hour show as we regress through the various stages of dementia.
The idea for Everywhere At The End Of Time sprang, Kirbysays, from his intense curiosity on the subject. In turn, the series is a careful and sometimes awed exploration of the effects of Alzheimer's. By putting the listener in the place of someone who is losing their mind, Everywhere At The End Of Time translates something unimaginable through a more easily understood medium: the manipulation and decay of recorded sound.
