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, Jess Speer, and Jos Alejandro Rivera. 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.
This week's show includes Anna Friz's "In the Air/In The Ground," and "With nothing but words or nearly so" from David Grubbs. Friz's "In the Air/In The Ground," was created for a group installation called "On: Transmission," part of the exhibition "Donner Forme Lther/ Shaping the Aether," curated by Pali Mersaultat for Espace Multimedia Gantner, Belfort France in 2021. The second work this week is "With nothing but words or nearly so" by New York-based sound artist David Grubbs, and created for Christof Migone's -If, the third in a series of twelve annual 12-hour events taking place on December 12 from noon to midnight EST. (Duration 45:00 min.) About it, he writes:
With nothing but words or nearly so
nothing but words to rely on
words only to buttress

words alone or nearly so
words alone but also
words and

(With nothing but words or nearly so David Grubbs tricks himself into a session of writing. Dont say hypnotize.)
