Tape Letters from the Waiting Room – Steven McInerney – UK

Tape Letters from the Waiting Room
A film by Steven McInerney – Original soundtrack by Mark Vernon

An existential drama exploring the universal themes of death and rebirth. Tape Letters from the Waiting Room is an experiment in film archaeology and magnetic memory as it navigates past life experiences. Shifting in succession from the mundane to the metaphysical, the film is composed of extant 16mm found footage from the past century. An original soundtrack by Mark Vernon encompasses a rich collection of domestic tape recordings; audio letters, dictated notes, found sounds and other lost voices. It received an Honourable Mention at Family Film Project in Portugal and has since screened at Ultracinema, Proceso de Error and Mostra Internacional de Cinema Etnografico.

Steven McInerney is a multimedia artist living in London. He creates recherché, abstract works mixing sound art and electronic music composition to explore psychospiritual themes and altered perception. McInerney is the founder of Psyché Tropes, a film company and record label exploring the synaesthetic intersections between sound and its visual counterpart. His 27-minute film A Creak In Time won the First Experiment Award at the 2019 Istanbul International Experimental Film Festival and the Alteraciones (Jury Prize) Award at the 30th Aguilar International Film Festival. The film was described by Wallpaper Magazine as “timeless and singular: a cinematic triumph of style and substance.’’ Official selections include International Film Festival Rotterdam, Kurzfilm Festival Hamburg and Gijón International Film Festival among others. The film has screened in concert with a live reel-to-reel soundtrack by Howlround at Flatpack, Splice and East End Film Festival.


Mark Vernon is a Glasgow based artist whose work exists on the fringes of sound art, experimental music and broadcasting. At the core of his practice lies a fascination with environmental sound, obsolete media and the re-appropriation of found recordings. He incorporates these diverse elements into radiophonic compositions for broadcast, fixed media and live performances. He co-runs and curates Glasgow art radio station, Radiophrenia and has produced radio works for stations internationally. His solo music projects have been published through labels including Kye, Glistening Examples, Canti Magnetici, Flaming Pines, Misanthropic Agenda, Entr’acte and 3Leaves.

  83. Diffie-Hellman key exchange algorithm for secure communication between STB and Smart Card in IPTV
    Broadcasting. A STB requesting VoD content during the peak hours can then receive necessary stripes from
    participating STBs in the neighborhood. This paper describes our current research work
    on Zebroid, a potential VoD solution for fiber-to-the-node (FTTN) networks, which uses IPTV data
    on a recurring basis to determine how to select, stripe, and preposition popular content in selected STBs during idle hours.

    Our research interest in this paper is how to
    achieve TV services personalization using technologies like context-awareness
    on top of NGN IPTV architecture. The appearance of new broadband wireless technologies jointly with
    the ability to offer enough quality of service to provide IPTV over them, have
    made possible the mobility and ubiquity of any type of device
    to access the IPTV network. New Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) services are
    including new technologies such as Stereoscopic TV and three-dimensions (3D)
    HDTV. After this, you will access the browser-based portal which will give you
    a TV-like interface including channels list and EPG.

    Will the content of Internet protocol television (IPTV) be different from that
    provided by the traditional video delivery systems of broadcast television, video recordings, cable
    television, and satellite television?
