Show 852: KIN | Laboratorio radiofonico e performativo a Santarcangelo Festival 2050 (Usmaradio)

The air is full of inaudible sounds that become so thanks to radio receivers.

– John Cage

KIN by Usmaradio / Roberto Paci Dalò is a radio and performative project with workshop sessions of The School of Radio guided by talented and professional radio-makers. The italian town of Santarcangelo di Romagna is “occupied” with the broadcasting of a schedule composed of materials related to Santarcangelo Festival (the 51 years old festival devoted to experimental performing arts), citizens’s voices and original materials created by the working group. All spread in public and private spaces with listening spots, improvisations, electronics, remote collaborative radio activities.

“The undifferentiated mass is expressed with a single voice, with slogans repeated in unison, so that the individualities blend vocally. Plurality, on the other hand, is expressed in a plurisonic way, producing not a single voice and not even a cacophony, but what I call a pluriphony, where each singular voice retains its uniqueness and reverberates with each other. ” (Adriana Cavarero). Texts and guiding voices are those of John Cage and Donna Haraway.
