The first Campus Paris programme for the Radia network is a cadavre exquis or exquisite corpse inspired by the Surrealist game invented in Paris in 1925. It is similar to the game Consequences in which players write in turn on a sheet of paper, fold it to conceal part of the writing, and then pass it to the next player for a further contribution. This version takes the exquisite body not only as technique but also the inspiration for the piece.
Regular Campus Paris contributors have teamed together to produce a series of short audio sequences and will only hear the whole programme at the end when the segments are unfolded and revealed to the listener.
