Radius PATCH is a series of curated playlists selected from the Radius episode archive.

Episode 02: Margaret Noble

Experimental composer Margaret Noble remixes themes from George Orwell’s classic dystopian novel, 1984 with modern media clips, text readings, melodic noise and electronic beats. This project features soundscapes produced from political promos, newsreel media and urban city recordings. Striking voices and jolting sounds merge together with an original vinyl recording of the novel adapted from a 1950’s radio broadcast. Samples used include: health care protests, water boarding simulation, political propaganda, city emergency alarms, public surveillance cameras, CIA agents, the NYSE stock exchange and the moments after an air strike.
