Special: Radia 2008 Review by Ricardo Reis and João Bacalhau

35 minutes to highlight the production for the whole year of 2008 of the Radia network would compress the 44 radio programs (1232 minutes), in a 0.028 ratio…

The 2008 review mix for Kunstradio represents a personal choice (compiled by Ricardo Reis and João Bacalhau) of the amazingly large spectrum of material that was produced throughout 2008. A list identifying the shows that were plundered for this work is given bellow (no special order). We hope it entices listeners’ curiosity to listen to more Radia shows and check the descriptions on http://www.radia.fm. And, YES, if you are an artist, send an email to the station nearer you and propose a program to Radia.

Show 195: Mixing Borders

Listening to the radio is like traveling and when you travel you cross borders. How does it sound when you mix borders? Borders on your map, borders in your head. Enjoy a cup of tea, or a good cognac, while listening to Mixing Borders.

This show is one of the outcomes of the Airtime seminar at the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne. http://www2.khm.de/airtime/

Show 193: The Military Landscape Show by Jay Needham

Lange Beschreibung The sonic resonance that surround current and former military landscapes have intrigued artists working with sound. Memories of power and technology settle as an uneasy layer in these environments, creating opportunities for artists. I intend for this to be an on-going series, hopefully weaving in writings, interviews and inviting collaborations.

4. Richard Lerman, Trinity Site (5:12)
Trinity Site, near Alamagordo, NM, was recorded in April 1997. Two times a year, the site where the first atomic bomb was tested, is opened up to visitors and many hundreds of people attend. I began recording from the car as I entered the military check point. Later, I recorded sounds from piezo disks attached to glass pieces that I placed into the earth. Also heard are sounds recorded from the fence surrounding ground zero and amplified, grass, weeks and footsteps of persons at the site.
