Sleep Bait


On the 14 June 2019, MayDay Radio hosted a performance of Sleep Bait, with Esther Leslie and Florence Warner.

The broadcast started at 20:29 and finish at 21:29, ten minutes after sunset.

Esther Leslie spoke on the following:

~ Sleep attractors
~ Hypnagogic inducers
~ Art of the Threshold
~ Across the threshold
~ Warp state
~ Sleep bait
~ Sleep aids
~ Inducements to slumber
~ Slumber devices
~ LoFi lullaby

These reflections were interspersed with sounds mixed on the night by Florence Warner, including sleep tapes by Charles Verni, Daniel Neofeetou, Yoojin Lee and Anthony Eliot. We also gathered together a list of the ways in which people fall asleep and also incorporated these into the mix.
