This month Wave Farm is pleased to feature projects that offer new perspective and encourage new vantage points. Over the past 12 months, Heidi Neilson and Harry Dove-Robinson's Here GOES Radiotelescope has been coming to life at Wave Farm, and we couldn't be more thrilled to announce the launch of an online access portal to this extraordinary project. Feeling boxed in? Visit heregoesradio.com and see ourselves from 22,000 miles away for a bit of reflection.

Tomorrow, Saturday May 2, marks the annual 24-hour broadcast event, REVEIL. Tune into Wave Farm Radio (WGXC 90.7-FM in New York's Upper Hudson Valley and wavefarm.org/listen everywhere) to hear the sounds of daybreak around the globe starting in London at midnight EDT. The live feed of daybreak from Wave Farm airs at 5:15 a.m.

Later this month, on May 10 Mother's Day, at 3 p.m. tune-in forThe Dream Had Me, a broadcast in collaboration with Earlid. The May WGXC program schedule at large continues to be vibrant and dynamic thanks to so many programmers broadcasting live from their newly created home studios. Thinking about applying for a radio show? The online WGXC Program Application is the first step in the process, and we welcome your submissions. WGXC: Radio for Open Ears continues to celebrate the convergence of creative and community content. In addition to live streaming local town meetings, we are also continuing to air New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's daily updates, which remain an informative resource during the COVID-19 crisis.

Here GOES Radiotelescope

by Heidi Neilson and Harry Dove-Robinson

A new and in-progress installation at Wave Farm, Here GOES Radiotelescope is an artist-run DIY ground station receiving GOES-16's faint, data-dense GRB transmission, and is one of only about 10 independent stations to do so. Visitors to the sculptural station sit within it and look through the “telescope” and see images of the Earth as they are being received from the satellite—from the seat, we effectively see ourselves through the satellite’s eyes. Recent images seen through the on-site viewport can now be seen online.

Wave Farm is pleased to co-present Soundcamp's seventh iteration of Reveil May 2-3, 2020. Broadcast live on Wave Farm's WGXC 90.7-FM, Reveil is a live 24-hour broadcast of the sounds of daybreak, relayed by audio streamers around the world. Reveil begins at midnight Eastern Daylight Time (5 a.m. in London time, UTC+1, where the broadcast first originates) and travels West just ahead of sunrise on a wave of live sounds relayed by streamers around the world. Reveil passes from urban rooftops to deep ocean hydrophones to remote forests in a 24-hour audit of the earth on International Dawn Chorus Day.

The feed is live from the Wave Farm location at 5:15 a.m. EDT, where featured sounds include Soundcamp's Test Site of Acoustic Commons 1, a listening point on the edge of woodland at Wave Farm, linked to an online network of open microphones; and Zach Poff's Pond Station, transmissions from inside a Wave Farm pond from dawn until sundown

Audio Buffet: The Dream Had Me

May 10, 2020: 3 p.m. 

Peer through the peephole. Listen to sound art that meanders around the mingled zones of the awakened and wobbly, less-conscious states. "The Dream Had Me" is this year’s Liminal Sounds, an annual international collection of artistry at Earlid. As with its online gallery space, revel in a dozen short works with Earlid's curating host Joan Schuman. Featured artists include: Adriene Lilly, Blanc Sceol (Stephen Shiell + Hannah White + image above), Diana Chester, Gabi Schaffner, Jeff Gburek, Joan Schuman, John Roach, Lou Barnell, Neil Verma, Sarah Washington, Timo Kahlen, and Ubu Kung

Listen … index finger to lips … shhh/shh … We have no earlids.

Your charitable contributions make a world of difference, now more than ever!

Wave Farm remains tirelessly committed to making the airwaves a participatory medium. A pioneer of the Transmission Arts genre, Wave Farm programs provide access to transmission technologies and support artists and organizations that engage with media as an art form.

These activities are made possible, in part, from state and federal art grants, foundation support, earned income derived from studio rentals and special curatorial/consulting engagements, and from private, tax-deductible, support from individuals like you.

Listeners, attendees, and collaborators support provides a critical piece to keeping Wave Farm programs afloat, and we are grateful to the many individuals who have shown their generosity past, present, and future.

Wave Farm programs are made possible, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; the National Endowment for the Arts; the Greene County Legislature through the County Initiative Program, administered in Greene County by the Greene County Council on the Arts; the Alexander and Marjorie Hover Foundation; the T. Backer Fund; the Joseph Family Charitable Trust; and hundreds of other generous individual donors, including WGXC Sustaining Supporters, who provide critical monthly support to Wave Farm's radio station WGXC 90.7-FM.
