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 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.
Annie Gosfield, whom the BBC called "a one woman Hadron collider," lives in New York City and works on the boundaries between notated and improvised music, electronic and acoustic sounds, refined timbres and noise. Gosfield incorporates air raid sirens, shortwave transmissions, jammed wartime radio signals into her work, including in the works featured here. Tune in an excerpt of her "The War of the Worlds" opera from 2017 with the Los Angeles Philharmonic. And hear "Lost Signals and Drifting Satellites," which incorporates satellite sounds, static, machine noise and microtonality with cellist Joan Jeanrenaud and the New York based Flux String Quartet. On "Phantom Shakedown" Gosfield says, "I performed... live on piano, accompanied by samples of detuned and prepared piano, a grinding cement mixer, the howl of a malfunctioning shortwave radio, and a mixed din of tube noise and other failing technologies." Also featured is "Long Waves and Random Pulses," a duet for violin and jammed radio signals. For this work, Gosfield employed original recordings of jamming sounds that were used to block radio transmissions in Italy, Germany, and the Soviet Union in World War II. And finally, tune in "Refracted Reflections and Telepathic Static" written for Christina and Michelle Naughton, twins, "who astonished me with their breathtaking technique and their seemingly telepathic communication. Inspired by their near-mirror image, I composed parallel lines that merge and diverge from identical parts," Gosfield says.
Wave Farm is a non-profit arts organization driven by experimentation with broadcast media and the airwaves.
