This extraordinarily intimate audio archive of over 1,000 cassettes was curated by Alan Dunn and involved Anthony Burgess's second wife Liana carrying a cassette recorder with her at all times to capture her life with the author and their son Andrew. Disc one contains the very first and last known recordings of Burgess's voice alongside domestic incidents, rehearsals and answering machine messages, while disc two invites 23 artists and musicians to remix the rare material into a unique Burgess portrait.
