Reprinted from the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago:

We are interested in what "radio" can mean in terms of art, music, and culture. The concepts, technologies, and ways that people use radio(s) has changed radically in recent years, and we are excited by the possibilities and conversations this opens up.

From antique analog radio receivers to the most recent digital systems for the distribution and streaming of musics, people know radio(s) as both a physical object and a cultural idea.

Our goal is to reimagine radio as a more mobile, spatial, and flexible artistic medium. We listen between stations, crossing signals, and creating opportunities to hear radio(s) again, with fresh sensibilities. This includes challenging the conceptions of terrestrial broadcasts, satellites, online activity, and on-demand forms; as well as telematic art exchanges, online podcasts, and unlicensed temporary interventions. Our performances utilize an array of electronic and analog instruments, as well as devices designed and fabricated by hand. We are interested in creating new electromagnetic infrastructure that proposes alternate narratives and experiences.
