In Search of the Future of Radio

What surprises does radio hold in store for us? Radio activists and artists in Graz team up with ∏-node to create a multi-dimensional radio infrastructure platform that explores the narrative, participative, and imaginary possibilities of radio through the use of both historic and new, digital technologies.

One of the winners of the CTM 2014 Radio Lab call for works, ∏-node have continued their work since the project's premiere showing in Berlin this past January. The latest iteration of the platform will set-up residence for the duration of the musikprotokoll festival, as a temporary social space where visitors are given free rein to their creativity. The group of local and ∏-node artists/activists will experiment with a wide range of cutting-edge and older technologies with the aim of enabling reflection on the basic historical and societal conditions of radio.

Let's Merry-Go-Round!

The carousel – an object of yearning from childhood days. Once in motion, its centrifugal force elicits screams of joy. Although the carousel at musikprotokoll looks like the ones in days of old, every ride takes you to a different acoustic present and, at the same time, to a new world of sound. The pieces can only be heard and felt while our bodies are revolving.

A work created within the ECAS (European and International Cities of Advanced Sound) project, the carousel has seen artists from all over create works for its special environment. CTM has been invited by partner festival musikprotokoll to contribute to setting the carousel in musical motion. In turn, CTM has sought-out sound and video artist Pierce Warnecke to join into this merry-go-round for advanced players.
