Wave Farm Radio: WGXC 90.7-FM is pleased to be a broadcast partner for Radio Art Zone, a joint project by the artist duo Mobile Radio (Sarah Washington and Knut Aufermann) and the Luxembourg community station Radio ARA, broadcasting for 100 days from 18th June to 25th September 2022 as part of the European Capital of Culture Esch2022. Tune in late nights on WGXC 90.7-FM to hear what's happening in the Radio Art Zone!
The schedule consists of two daily programs: a 22-hour radio art production, and a two-hour lunchtime live radio show from a local kitchen. It also features two month-long artist residencies and a program of public events. Each day the radio sounds different from the next: 100 international and local artists and groups have been invited to produce a durational program, requiring them to fully immerse themselves in topics and production techniques of their choice. Taking form through performances, compositions, installations and interventions in public space, from the point of view of the listeners Radio Art Zone is a kind of audible lucky dip. Every day a distinctive concept is offered, a new experience of sound, a novel idea of radio. The lunchtime shows bring a domestic scenario to the radio: people cook and talk, relax with guests and laugh. This framework makes space for spontaneous discussions about the radio art works between artists, invited guests and passers-by, all involved in cooking together on air, without agenda or formal interviews. Some live lunches will be hosted in Radio Art Zone's publicly accessible studio, others broadcast from private and workplace kitchens in and around Esch, anchoring the project in the everyday life of the audience. For 100 days Radio Art Zone will be broadcast within the Esch2022 Capital of Culture area on FM radio. It will also be available online and via simultaneous broadcast on a host of international partner stations which enable the program to be widely accessed across the globe.
