This sequence features brief extracts from "Blackout (The Antiphony Video Supplement)" video by Disinformation - Barry Hale's highly influential (and frequently copied) film of concrete parabolic air-defence Sound Mirrors, built at various sites on the UK coast before WW2. "Blackout" was conceived as supplementary to Sound Mirror images by photographer Julian Hills (taken in January 1996) which appear on the sleeve of the Disinformation "Antiphony" double remix CD, published by the record company Ash International in 1997  .
Barry Hale's Sound Mirror video has been shown at NTT ICC (Tokyo), The Royal College of Art (London), Galerie fur Zeitgenossische Kunst (Leipzig), The Art House (London), Schirn Kunsthalle (Frankfurt), The Dom (Moscow), and exhibited at The ICA (London), CCCB (Barcelona), The Mac (Birmingham), Now 1999 (Nottingham), Waygood Gallery (Newcastle), Quay Arts (Isle of Wight), Wrexham Arts Centre, South Hill Park (Bracknell), Saltburn Artists Projects, Q Gallery (Derby), Study Gallery of Modern Art (Poole), Event Gallery (London), Ginza Art Lab (Tokyo) and The Latvian National Museum of Art.
Documentation of the Disinformation project appears in The Wire magazine in 1997; in "100% Pylon" by Angus Carlyle, pp. 68-83, "Themepark" 2, 2000; in The Hayward Gallery "Sonic Boom" catalogue, pp. 26-29, 2000; the "Sound Art - Sound as Media" catalogue, pp. 70-73, NTT ICC Tokyo 2000; "The Analysis of Beauty" catalogue 2003; the "Waves" catalogue, pp. 48-49, Latvian National Museum of Art 2006, etc. The "Antiphony Architectural Supplement" appears in Sound Projector 6, pp. 57-64, 1999 -
The long version of this film runs just short of 20 minutes, and (even in 2008) remains one of the most comprehensive visual surveys of these extraordinary structures ever conducted. One element notable by its absence from this edit is the long (and beautiful) abstract sequence which Barry created for the full version of this film.
