A collaborative sound work by Frances Barrett and Nina Buchanan for Tiny Stadiums, 2014.

A Manual for Time Travel is a performance of transmission: a performance without site, without bodies, without a programmed beginning or a finite end. In this work, performance is realised as a time machine, both a formless and wireless entity that shifts through bodies and through time linking the artist (of the past) to the audience (of the future).

A Manual for Time Travel assists audiences to travel in and out of time and space in the form of a streamed sound piece for audiences to listen to whilst walking around Erskineville and travelling between the various Tiny Stadiums art sites. Included is a set of sonic instructions detailing how one can become a time traveller moving between the past, present and future. The work is set to a composition by Sydney-based composer, Nina Buchanan.
