Time Out says
This ingenious radio play will stay with you long after
You're sitting on a park bench listening to your headphones when a woman comes up to you asking for help. She is wearing a coat that's too big for her, and she doesn't remember how she got there. Are these cigarettes in her pockets hers? What does the alarm on her watch mean? And wait... what's in the box?
Knot is the latest audio production from Darkfield Radio, the team behind immersive soundscape experiences Séance and Flight, which took place in physical shipping containers around the city. In the former, participants were immersed in the world of a séance that summons more than anyone bargained for. The Flight shipping container was fitted out like an aeroplane, with real plane seats, overhead bins and in-flight safety messaging. That made it all the more terrifying when the lights went out and the seats began to shake, but in both cases, a meticulously designed soundscape of terror brought the audience's worst fears to life.
Darkfield Radio uses the power of cleverly created soundscapes and your own imagination to bring terrifying scenarios to life. The company has created audio-only soundscapes to be enjoyed (or feared) in your own home, such as Eternal and Visitors. This one, called Knot, is meant to be listened to in three separate locations: on a park bench, in your car and at home.
All three locations are important to the plot, and you'll get more out of it if you follow the instructions to the letter. The audio is so cleverly recorded you'll swear someone really is sitting next to you whispering in your ear, or walking up behind you, getting closer.
The action takes place over three different times: 5.30pm on a park bench, 6.30pm in a car and 7.30pm at home. When you book your tickets, make sure you have access to all three of those locations at the times specified. And although the action is slightly confusing at first, stick with it – all will be (horrifyingly) revealed.
