Episode #19: Radio Art with Sarah Washington and Knut Aufermann

Radio can be a forum for talking about art, and it can also be a form of art itself. Sarah Washington and Knut Aufermann of Mobile Radio and Tonic Train discuss the relationship between their sound experiments with electronic music and the relatively untapped potential of radio as an artistic experience. Hear about their involvement in the beginnings of England’s Resonance 104.4FM, and their present relationship with Radia. We discuss the essentially place-specific nature of sound in the context of simultaneous listening communities around the world, tuning-in, being surprised, relinquishing control, and the invitation to participate in creative radio expression.
