Matt Hatter’s Garden

A liminal radio piece.
Mr. Hatter is raking the lawn in his garden while a nightingale sings. He seemingly suffers of tinnitus, but then again it is not altogether clear where we are: Inside Mr Hatter’s head? In a parallel mix-tape world where Keat’s “Ode to a Nightingale” is intercut with more nightingale poems in other languages? Matt doesn’t give a damn… he rummages about, his mind spinning with occasional tango tunes and drippings from watering cans.
