In the lounge Finch Dan Rider
About This Show
Long ago, there was an island where all the finches died except the lucky ones with the right beaks. Today, a young girl takes a drink of seawater and eats a bottle cap with her sharp teeth. In the future, the oceans will fill with plastic, humanity will choke on its own waste, and she will be the only one left standing on the garbage shore. Finch is a science fiction story with a live-composed soundscape, which chronicles the life of one woman as she adapts to a ruined planet.
