Welcome to "The Radio Art Hour," a show where art is not just on the radio, but is the radio. "The Radio Art Hour" draws from the Wave Farm Broadcast Radio Art Archive, an online resource that aims to identify, coalesce, and celebrate historical and contemporary international radio artworks made by artists around the world, created specifically for terrestrial AM/FM broadcast, whether it be via commercial, public, community, or independent transmission. Come on a journey with us as radio artists explore broadcast radio space through poetic resuscitations and playful celebrations/subversions of the complex relationship between senders and receivers in this hour of radio about radio as an art form. "The Radio Art Hour" features introductions from Philip Grant and Tom Roe, and from Wave Farm Radio Art Fellows Karen Werner, Andy Stuhl, and Jess Speer. The Conet Project's recordings of numbers radio stations serve as interstitial sounds. Go to wavefarm.org for more information about "The Radio Art Hour" and Wave Farm's Radio Art Archive.
Tune in today to textures of radio, from Absolute Value of Noise, Anna Friz, and Glenn Gear; Scanner; Negativland; and Joyce Hinterding and David Haines. First tune in "Magnetic Radio" from Absolute Value of Noise, Anna Friz, and Glenn Gear. The track comes from their album "Somewhere a voice is calling," and the collaborators write about the album: "On Christmas Day 1906, Reginald Aubrey Fessenden transmitted music and voice across the Atlantic in the first radio broadcast in history. Inspired by this event, radio artists Absolute Value of Noise and Anna Friz joined with animator/live video mixer Glenn Gear created a performance that worked with the themes of "invisible" sounds, hidden voices, and the early days of radio communication on the Atlantic Ocean." Next tune in Scanner's "RF Radiation" from his 1995 album "Spore." The British artist known as Scanner is Robin Rimbaud, whose early controversial work used found mobile phone conversations. This track is from his second album, and includes a sample of someone warning about the dangers of mobile phone radio waves. Next, tune in "Sequitur," from Negativland's 2021 EP "No Brain." It is a cascade of samples about and from radio wave broadcasts. The dictionary says that sequitur is "the conclusion of an inference." Finally, the show includes Joyce Hinterding and David Haines performance from October 2016 at the "Radio Revolten" conference in Germany. Hinterding is an Australian artist known for exploring electromagnetic phenomena with large sculptural antenna works, video and sound-producing installations, and experimental audio works for performance. She partners with Haines on many large-scale works. Here they use home-made antennas to harness raw electro-magentic energy in the room. Episode 097.
