Breaking Up With Reality
Reality abandoned all of us.
This is an exploration of our break up with our past,
And the new relationship we have with our future.
Nod At The Fox combines spoken word, recorded soundscapes and music to create an audio love letter to Reality. It’s hard having to only greet Reality with an elbow bop, but if we get any closer it will break our hearts all over again.
Created for and premiered at Living Record Festival 2021.
Text, music, sound recordings & read by Eden Harbud.
With segments of music from:
Dominic Roocroft, Ross Williams, Sam Williams,
Daniil Timofeev & Dmitriy Stoyan.
Supported by Arts Council England.
Script also available for purchase.

In these times, we're dipping our toes in the realm of audio theatre. Sound has always been a huge part of our process, equally taking up the stage alongside live performance. When creating puppetry work, the directing and composition of a show will come about in the audio creation process, which is always where we start. So much can be done with audio storytelling, so we utilise that to compliment the on stage visuals. We love making work that’s detailed, deep listening and also delicate, often using metaphor to express themes.
For this project, Eden has been using GarageBand and Audacity to edit the audio.
