Show 111: Untitled Sit for Your Aetheric Body by Michelle Nagai

Long Distance Sitting Piece

Untitled Sit for Your Aetheric Body by Michelle Nagai.

This work is one in a series of sitting pieces. A collection of (usually live) performance works, these sitting pieces share several common themes, one of which is the presence of the performer and the listener in one “space” together. This broadcast’s subtitle, Untitled Sit, is the generic label for a series of compositions originally devised for live performance in private homes. Each work, created and performed by the composer, is centered around the presence of a still and silent seated figure in close physical proximity to the audience. Variations on the basic form are permitted, and in all cases, a free-form exchange of sensory information is encouraged between performer, viewer and environment. This is an interactive radio broadcast.

Show 078: The Demonstration by Anna Friz

Mediascapes heard from radios suspended in the theatre, broadcast on 4 watts FM.
Originally designed for pirate radio broadcast as part of a youth theatre/media and democracy project in Toronto, Canada, spring 2006. I created a series of pieces to serve as mediascapes surrounding actors in a physical theatre, reflecting on themes suggested by participating high school students (ages 16-18) such as power, commercialized culture and media saturation, justice, and freedom. The pieces were heard from radios suspended in the theatre, broadcast on 4 watts FM.
