The desire for transcendence affects us all. Led by pain and dissatisfaction, the struggles of being alive can only really be overcome in death.'
Author and writer Steph Kretowicz’s psychedelic radio feature wanders through a layered and multi-dimensional notion of existence as suffering.
Ben Babbitt and felicita’s unsettling musical compositions lead this sonic trip through theatemporal influence of trauma and experience on a life, at a point where personal and cultural histories collide. Dispersed across London, Poland and Los Angeles, “I hate it here” dissolves time and location into the people and memories of the past that shape a person in the present. It touches on folk traditions across eras, and religious and spiritual practices across regions in a sometimes poignant, sometimes absurd tribute to the routines and rituals designed to fathom the unfathomable.
