Radius PATCH 11: Improvisation

PATCH is a series of curated playlists selected from the Radius episode archive. Each playlist is organized around a specific topic or theme that engages the tonal and public spaces of the electromagnetic spectrum. PATCH serves as a platform to illuminate the questions, concerns, and complexities of and within radio-based art practices.

Episode 12: HMBKR

Radio Majesty documents the first meeting of four Vancouver-based audio artists who explore the frequency spectrum through real-time digital signal processing, unconventional tuning systems, and free improvisation. Radio Majesty was originally intended as a remote public performance via webcast for RadiaLx Festival in Lisbon, Portugal. It was also recorded privately at VIVO Media Arts Centre in Vancouver, Canada.

Radius PATCH 10: Unconscious

PATCH is a series of curated playlists selected from the Radius episode archive. Each playlist is organized around a specific topic or theme that engages the tonal and public spaces of the electromagnetic spectrum. PATCH serves as a platform to illuminate the questions, concerns, and complexities of and within radio-based art practices.

Episode 22: Public Domain

Public Domain takes after its name sake, the public domain, and views, manipulates, edits, and comments on material found within it. Public Domain uses material from radio, records and the internet. The work often mirrors the collective unconscious through the use of voyeurism and dark humor. The resulting work is a collage of reality, time, and experiences. Public Domain uses collage and montage to reflect upon the things they love, and simultaneously place them in ridicule. Various elements are produced to fit together smoothly, whereas other clash. The discrepancies convey an impression of a heterogeneous assemblage; a careful randomness of disparate elements and collisions. The work critiques the uses of the public domain and plays with the endless juxtaposition of media.
