For this performance I used archived audio on vinyl, found materials, antennae radios and hand-made instruments to create an hour of live performance. The radios transmitted live stations from Iraq as well as a feature station #Falgoosh created especially for the performance, of songs by Westerners imagining Baghdad in pop songs. These included Laurie Anderson, Kate Bush and Patti Smith. A member of the audience called it "epic", fitting words for anything that included a piece called Gilgamesh.
