Mr Saturn
SNES ROM File & Performance
Glenn Boulter with Ross Dalziel
2011

Mr Saturn suggests a meeting between the celebrated 16 bit role playing game Earthbound and the work of German writer and academic WG Sebald as its protagonists set off on a carefree walking tour across a colourful two dimensional landscape that gradually reveal 'traces of destruction, reaching far back into the past'.

In it's exploration of walking as a process of remembering, Mr Saturn adds to a body of work that includes Walks in Leicestershire (2005), the bleak snapshots of England's hinterlands of the Negative Album (2006) and the fractured narrative of the Barrow-in-Furness football drone opera, An Unorthodox 1-2 (2010).
