Hand In Hand With A Stranger

by Laura Agnusdei



“Hand In Hand With A Stranger” is a radio piece I composed partly during my residency at Worm Studios and partly during the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown period. Inspired by the art of Lithuanian-American videomaker Jonas Mekas, its form is what we can describe as an audio-diary; a collection of personal thoughts, feelings, ideas, and small ordinary events happened between January and March 2020, when I was touring South Italy and during my residency period in Rotterdam. Nevertheless, these sonic sketches are not presented in a chronological sequence but assembled freely to compose an intimate story where a state of displacement and loneliness trigger an intense and attentive relationship with the surrounding world.

After composing the piece I asked graphic designer Rob Shuttleworth to help me in creating a visual counterpoint for my work. The result of this collaborative process is a book where a combination of words, photos and maps gently reconfigures the extremely personal geography of this nonlinear journey, revealing new points of resonance previously unheard.
