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 for radio art from The Beatles, and NeuroTransmitter. On The Beatles "I Am The Walrus," John Lennon instructs Ringo Starr to tune in an AM radio at the end of the song. Listen closely, and you will hear a BBC production of Shakespeares "The Tragedy of King Lear." The broadcast was at the point of Act IV, Scene VI, where the steward Oswald is killed. Then tune in two works from the duo NeuroTransmitter, Angel Nevarez and Valerie Tevere. First, hear their "Radio Film Studies Vol.1: made for Wave Farm's show "Tune(In))) Brooklyn." Then hear "12 Miles Out," realized in 2005 in conjunction with the exhibition "Airborne" at the New Museum for Contemporary Art in New York co-organized by Wave Farm (then known as free103point9). The work was exhibited for many years as an installation rather than as a piece made solely for radio broadcast. "12 Miles Out" is an example of radio art that addresses radio as content, as material, and as a space; the piece is also a kind of archive of pirate radio, an archive within the archive. Here is neuroTransmitters description of the piece: '12 Miles Out' is a visual and sound installation that merges analog radio technology and line drawing. This work continues neuroTransmitters exploration of offshore pirate radio practice prevalent in Europe in the 1960s and 1970s, and in the US a decade later. Pirate radio is a tactic that undermines corporate media domination, and occupies the privatized space of radio bandwidth for noncommercial interests. '12 Miles Out' specifically references Radio Caroline, one of the most infamous offshore radio ships. Installed, the drawing represents a Radio Caroline ship circa 1964, setting the scene for the radio broadcast. The audio composition mixes live and ambient sound recordings of an ocean voyage neuroTransmitter took out into international waters; archival material from Radio Caroline broadcasts; and audio that references offshore pirate radio and the shifts in territorial boundaries that govern the sea. Multiple radios within the exhibition space are be tuned to the projects transmission frequency, or viewers can bring their own radios in order to listen to the work. Introduced by Wave Farm Radio Artist Fellow 2019/2020, Karen Werner.
