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.
Today tune in satellites on "The Radio Art Hour," with works from Heidi Neilson, Annie Gosfield, and Steve Roden. The show begins with a Heidi Neilson recording of a satellite passing over Wave Farm in New York, with an audible approach and exit. Then tune in the 2004 work "Lost Signals and Drifting Satellites" from Annie Gosfield. The track includes satellite sounds, static, machine noise, microtonality, and includes violinst George Kentros. Finally, this episode features Steve Roden's "Transmissions (Voices of Objects and Skies)." The work was created for the exhibition "Transmissions From Space" at the Fresno Metropolitan Museum, inspired by John Glenns first transmission from space, as well as Rimbauds poem Vowels in which each vowel is given a color equivalent. Roden's installation in the exhibit consisted of 102 color coded tin cans hanging in a dark room " one for each vowel in Glenns text, with 64 of the cans containing small audio speakers playing an eight-channel soundwork, while other cans contained small four-watt colored lightbulbs. The source material was recordings of satellites by amateur astronomers from the 1960s through the 1980s, processed and transformed electronically.
Wave Farm is a non-profit arts organization driven by experimentation with broadcast media and the airwaves. A pioneer of the Transmission Arts genre, Wave Farm programs provide access to transmission technologies and support artists and organizations that engage with media as an art form. Major activities include the Wave Farm Artist Residency Program; Transmission Art Archive; WGXC 90.7-FM: Radio for Open Ears, a creative community radio station based in New Yorks Upper Hudson Valley; a Fiscal Sponsorship program; and the Media Arts Assistance Fund in partnership with NYSCA Electronic Media/Film.
