Noisy Radio Art:
My radio art is everything I normally do, filtered through radio waves. Just as my net.art is everything I normally do, filtered through the web.
Entropy was the underlining theme for the radio plays I've done for the ORF program Kunstradio. With entropy the outcome is invariably some variation on the hole. My 1992 radio play Clici-Clic was composed solely of amplified hole-punching. A contact-mic was mounted on a hand-held hole-punch, and recorded one track at a time on a maximal amount of tracks.
Since 1995, most of my live radio art has been aired on such stations as KDVS Davis, KZSU Stanford, Sauvagine Bordeaux, Canal Sud Toulouse, Freies Sender Kombinat Hamburg, and Resonance FM London.
In 2005, a performance of mine, in which I dug a hole in the ground with live mics, was aired live on the German/Polish network Radio Copernicus.
In 2006, I allegorized the polywave by means of amplified erosion in a hour long episode of Kunstradio. The spinner spade never sounded better!
During the 1980's, whenever I wanted to create an all-night broadcast using only a single sound, I would take a long tape-loop and play it through multiple playback heads. This technique always provided a seamless sound sculpture. During April 2008, for Simulcast 1.0b (via free103point9) I did something different. Instead of using analog based repetition, I took a short recording of 40 seconds and digitally stretch it into a single ten and a half hour long wave form. The original recording was that of an auto accident, which is one of my favourite sounds. The resulting effect was very much like ceaseless grinding, which also happens to be a favourite of mine.
At Ars Electronica in 2012, I did Loud Luggage in which I used a modified transistor radio to interferer with the signals from my amplified suitcases. It was broadcast live on Austrian national radio (ORF) in conjunction with the 25th Anniversary of Kunstradio.
In 2015, I produced a radio poem based on the words of whistleblower PVT Chelsea Manning. This piece was broadcast on Resonance FM in the UK, on Borealis Festival Radio in Norway, and on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation's radio series Soundproof.
