Radiophrenia is a temporary art radio station – a two-week exploration into current trends in sound and transmission arts. Broadcasting live from Glasgow’s Centre for Contemporary Arts, the station aims to promote radio as an art form, encouraging challenging and radical new approaches to the medium.
Radio as an art form? Awyeah! Radiophrenia is a very cool radio festival happening in Scotland between the 13th and the 26th of May, a festival that smells experimental from the get go, featuring newly commissioned radio works, live-studio shows, live-to-air performances and much more!
Most of the works featured during these two weeks of crazy radio sounds come from an international open call, and I managed to get one short track in this year’s programme! My track, titled “We were not the intended recipients of this message” has been featured on the first day of the schedule as part of a segment called “Shorts 15”, and contains an ominous incantation of radio spirits, masked by white noise and tinnitus-testing tones. Curious? Here it is:
Shout out to Radiophrenia and its organisers for a great event! What a phenomenon! 📻
