X is a non-definitive journey exploring dissociation. Constructed as a first person experience in a non-linear narrative, it refers to historical sites including an abandoned radioactive hospital, ex-religious/ex-military locations, a burnt down pub, a forest, catacombs, alleys and a talking fountain. X confronts the idea of the unknown through fragmentation, framing & symmetry, circles/cycles and the juxtaposition of inside/outside, light/dark, life/death. Recorded on location throughout Europe and Australia 2011-2012, multiple sites are presented as one in an exploration of processes into and out of the in between. Mark Della-Libera created the sound composition and design for X in collaboration with Walkerden, based on discussions about dissociation.
