21:40 – 22:00 GMT RAVEL – Radio-No-Radio (Belgium)
Live from Antwerp
EBU ARS ACUSTICA / ART’S BIRTHDAY PARTY 2007 – Antwerp.
“Ancient life was all silence. In the nineteenth century, with the invention of the machine, Noise was born. ”
words by Luigi Rusollo.
Can we make a same statement for radio ?
What if radio wasn’t invented 100 years ago ?
RADIO-NO-RADIO try’s to find answers, listen therefore to the silences between today’s radio stations.
We hear randomized long-, middle-, shortwave and fm silence samples on a interactive 16 channel speaker installation.
From 13.00 these radio silences sound in the public library DE DRIEHOEK Antwerp / Ekeren until it closes at 20.00 . Continuing we organize an ART’S BIRTHDAY party from 20.00 to 24.00
4 musicians and 1 actor improvise in the RADIO-NO-RADIO soundscape. The public is free to walk around. This performance becomes part of the EBU ARS ACUSTICA event ART’S BIRTHDAY 2007.
