Mollspeak: Resonance FM Broadcast

    Activity: Other activity typesPublic engagement and outreach - media article or participation


    An experimental audio work written and directed by Maria Fusco, composed by Olivier Pasquet and voiced by Maxine Peake. It reveals the pains, desires and routines of 18th-century maid servants, drawing from extensive archival research and 3D sound scans of historical objects. ‘Mollspeak’ is an eighteenth-century phrase employers coined to mock their servants' dialectical speech. Originally commissioned as an eleven-channel installation work by Sinead McCarthy at Museum of the Home, this is a new broadcast composition, funded by The Elephant Trust.
