This is a work created for the online sound journal EARLID that hosts a curated program of works called Liminal Sounds. The theme for this edition was The Intermediary.
The text is provided by the French artist Caroline Bouissou and was developed as part of a project we did together at Triangle Artist Workshop in September 2015. The rest of the sounds are from Triangle, from recordings in Greece and Italy.
Here is a description of the work:
The Radio, algorithm and space. These are intermediaries that connect us to waves, ideas and bodies. They exist seemingly without substance but provide an armature for experience to which we may become attuned and hopelessly attached. A radio is, like any mediator (or medium), both a trusted guide and a good listener eager to please. Our radio offers a litany of “I ams,” but these were generated by a more recently birthed intermediary agent – the Google algorithm, in response to the query “I AM A RADIO”
