The Long Night
with The Continuum Broadcast

Caminul Cultural and KILOBASE BUCHAREST have the pleasure to present a work-in-progress version of The Continuum Broadcast during an essentially crepuscular marathon in Bucharest: The Long Night - a public tour by Apparatus 22 in private houses.

Taking place between 4:30pm - the sunset time of Monday, December 21 and 7:50pm - the sunrise time of Tuesday, December 22 the nocturnal visits will unveil two new sound pieces produced by Apparatus 22 (RO) and Simon Asencio (FR|BE) for The Continuum Broadcast.

The Continuum Broadcast is the second in a series of joint works that are reflecting on the ambivalent power of radio to inform and entertain as well as to manipulate or empower.
