I always liked radio. It offers a special mental, bodily and emotional space. At least it used to. Things are so much different these days. It seems it is so hard to find intimacy, time and attention to focus on a single channel. It seems like we are tuned to many different frequencies at once and we’re having an open recording device on each of them. Do we ever go back and listen to those recordings? Have we really experienced each and every one of these channels? If we haven’t, do the recordings matter?
Radiophonicaly I was “born” through so called Ministry for Experiment run by Borut Savski, Marko Košnik and Luka Frelih. Broadcasting seemed such magic. The open radiospace after midnight and the experience of the eXchange network (first web streaming, creating closed loop/chain of online rebroadcasters) provoked a special sense of closeness and distance at the same time.
A recent radio project was a monthly radio show “Fragments from a Deviant”, where various materials – sonic and textual – were manipulated, processed and edited into a collage of dis/appearing messages and references.
What follows is a short edit of some of those radio shows and few original sound pieces.
