Inspired by the controversial American book of the same title by Nicholson Baker, Double Fold is an extended work focusing on a pulse,128 beats per minute. The book is an exploration of the dismantling of the greatest archives of our recorded heritage, paper as a resource now too fragile to store our history on.
As Robin Rimbaud anticipates: "The idea of the archive fascinates me and I would be interested to incorporate radio archives into this performance piece. For the broadcast I will source sounds from my own tape archive of scanned voices, found sounds, stolen conversations and processing them digitally. Having access almost randomly to Cds of other radio works I could collage these live into the work. It would explore my own brittle sound diary, producing a series of contrasting moods that would slip and slide around one another, yet never losing grip of the measure. Double Fold will be a rhythmic performance, focusing on a central line of measure, capturing a history, both personal and public."
