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.

Episode 27: Ryan ⊥ Dunn

Incidental Music is a broadcast of mashed sourced audio material set to your manifestation of color in a black and white map of associations. For Radius, IM is a collection from the space of broadcast and an invitation to participate in an additive process through locations within the broadcast range and your participation in the visual completion of the colorless guide. A dual psychogeographic map and coloring news sheet is provided in conjunction with the broadcast to suggest and create shared experiences and present the possibility of the actual. Visit Radius, listen, and color incident.

Episode 53: Maria Papadomanolaki

Assemblage No 1 is the first of a series of works for radio that experiment with using only a limited pool of sounds, culled from one specific domestic appliance for each work. For Assemblage No 1, using different microphones and recording techniques, the mundane sounds and micro-environment of a refrigerator are rearranged and meticulously sculpted to “radiate” an uncanny and subconscious sonotopia. The piece finds inspiration in the surrealist notion of the assemblage and the blurring and destabilization of assumed (aural) realities attached to everyday objects.
