5 a.m.: Radia: Dublin Laptop Orchestra "Fresh Air," Radia Show 412 is a large-scale sound art piece curated and created by the Dublin Laptop Orchestra. The piece was written to address the sad truth that many common, household and automobile air-fresheners are heavily carcinogenic. The fact that people are willing to put their lives in danger in order to preserve nothing more than the aesthetic qualities of their world typifies the form over function attitude prevalent in our society and is something which we felt was important to deal with. The work is in three sections, (1) Breathe In(side) by Brian Dillon, (2) Form by Gregory Jackson and (3) A Comparison of Worth by Bernhardt McKenna. "Radia" is a network of 20 stations in 13 countries, including free103point9/WGXC, each interested in new and forgotten ways of making radio.
