Festival Broadcast

Sensoria is delighted to announce a new festival experience – a special radio broadcast of a newly commissioned radio docu-drama. Radios will be available at various cafes around Sheffield and beyond to come along and tune in to this Premiere broadcast. Participating cafes include Steam Yard Café and Café No. 9 in Sheffield.

Kafka Chic, written and produced by writer/musician Mick Somerset Ward and Dean Honer (I Monster, All Seeing I, Eccentronic Research Council), explores the cityʼs musical history contrasting the seminal year of 1980 and now. The narrator is Graham Fellows (aka John Shuttleworth) and other contributors include: Martyn Ware (Heaven 17); Philip Oakey (The Human League); Stephen Mallinder (Wrangler, Cabaret Voltaire); Stephen Singleton (ABC) and Glenn Gregory (Heaven 17). The production also entirely features newly written music by Somerset Ward and Honer with guest vocalists including Lisa O’Hara (Magpies), Loretta Chantry (Betari’s Box), Zan (Blossomer), Kid Faces and Peter Rophone (The Third Half) plus a special contribution from Adi Newton (Clock DVA).

Additionally a sound design workshop was delivered as part of the Kafka Chic project, in association with Sheffield Hallam University. Participants aged 16 – 24 benefited from an all-round introduction to the world of sound design in the media from field recording to Foley.

The project is supported by Arts Council England, Yorkshire, Sheffield Town Trust, Sensoria Festival, Sheffield Hallam University and Resonance FM.
