Midnight – 5:30 a.m.: "NRFF Art's Birthday Broadcast"
From Jan. 19, 2013 broadcast: "Art's Birthday" is an annual event first proposed in 1963 by French artist Robert Filliou. He suggested that 1,000,000 years ago, there was no art. But one day, on the 17th of January to be precise, Art was born. According to Filliou, it happened when someone dropped a dry sponge into a bucket of water. Filliou proposed a public holiday to celebrate the presence of art in our lives. In recent years, the idea has been taken up by a loose network of artists and friends around the world. Each year the Eternal Network evolves to include new partners - working with the ideas of exchange and telecommunications-art. In 2013, for the 1,000,050th birthday of art, the Experimental Sound Studio hosted the radio collaboration NRRF Radio in the Audible Gallery from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m., January 17 (GMT -6) -- transmitted to the neighbourhood via FM (87.9) and to the world streamed live over the internet. This is a rebroadcast of that show. Listening and exchanging with birthday streams circulating internationally, infiltrating available bands with tenacious earworms and parasitic refrains, powered of course by lurid birthday cake. Glue Banta, Jonny Farrow, Anna Friz, Stephen Germana, Jeff Kolar, Peter Speer, and guests bring the noise.
