BRECORD

UNPICKING THE PORTMANTEAU

An 8-week research project conducted in response to the EU withdrawal negotiations, 'Brecord' examined the language used by politicians and the media when discussing the EU referendum, and used this data to compose a series of sound pieces. The project analysed both specific linguistic traits and themes, and the frequency and tenor of their delivery within the accompanying media discourse.  In doing so, the project sought to catalogue the dominant narratives of the debate, with a particular focus on language that, like the term ‘Brexit’ itself, walked a critical line between the shortcuts of abstraction and the meaningless gesticulations of modern populism.
