Happy 10th anniversary Radia!

On the 4th April 2005 the first Radia show started circulating amongst its member stations. Today, exactly 10 years later, we are syndicating show number 522, and the network has grown from ten European stations to 25 radio broadcasters worldwide. All that is powered by volunteers with a love for radio and art. Here’s to the next 10 years!


Radiophrenia – call for works

Radiophrenia – a temporary FM art radio station broadcasting in Glasgow during April 2015, announces an open call for sound and transmission artworks:

We are seeking soundscapes, spoken word pieces, radio experiments, found sound, innovative approaches to drama and documentary and radical and challenging new programme ideas. The station will be housed in Glasgow’s Centre for Contemporary Arts with a broadcast schedule including live shows, pre-recorded features and a daily series of live to air performances. Radiophrenia aims to promote the medium of radio as an art form and encourage experimental approaches to making radio that are not catered for by mainstream stations. The deadline for submissions is 28th February, 2015. We regret that there are no fees for contributors.

On 3-4 MAY 2014 REVEIL happens: the first live 24 hour broadcast of the sounds of daybreak. REVEIL will be hosted in New York by  Wave Farm and broadcast on WGXC 90.7-FM and participating stations including Resonance FM (UK), Soundart radio (UK), Radio Papesse (IT), Kriti FM (GR), NOFM2 [ARTSYNCH] (BG), Phaune Radio (FR), ARTxFM (Louisville, KY, US), Radio Patapoe (Amsterdam, NL).

Starting on Saturday at dawn London time (UTC 0+1), REVEIL will travel West from one open microphone to the next, tracking the rising sun, and finish the following morning back in London where the show is being broadcast from the soundCamp at Stave Hill Ecology Park, about 2 miles from the Meridian line in Greenwich.

The broadcast will combine streams from the Locus Sonus network, many assembled specially for this event, newly commissioned feeds from Abu Dhabi, Athens, Tehran and S Italy, together with existing live audio from webcams, deep ocean hydrophones, Very Low Frequency radio and independent channels, covering all continents and time zones.

REVEIL aims to create a sketch of this emerging live archive and to catalyze the development of a more extensive open microphone network as a way of attending to the soundscapes especially of wild places – whether in remote wilderness or dense urban areas. The Reveil broadcast and the soundCamp are linked to International Dawn Chorus Day, an annual event when many people go out in the early morning to listen to birdsong.

cellar7Every autumn thousands of wine cellars in the Mosel valley, Germany’s premier wine growing region, turn into magnificent sound installations. Freshly pressed grape juice starts fermenting in barrels and the escaping gas bubbles through glass u-pipes, each barrel at its own speed. Mobile Radio has set up a stereo microphone in the wine cellar of bio-dynamic winemakers Rudolf & Rita Trossen in the village of Kinheim to capture and broadcast these fermentation sounds from 8pm to 8am CET, starting on Monday 4th November, documenting the work of yeast turning juice into wine.
