The Radio Art Hour: Kristin Lucas, Anna Friz, Charles Amirkhanian
Produced by Wave Farm Radio Artist Fellows and Artistic Director Tom Roe.
This week radio artists Kristin Lucas, Anna Friz, and Charles Amirkhanian are featured. On "Involuntary Reception," a video from Electronic Arts Intermix, Kristin Lucas performs as a young woman with an enormous electro-magnetic pulse field. Anna Friz's "The Clandestine Transmissions of Pirate Jenny," is a radiophonic piece of a radio pirate, transmitting from inside the black box of radio technology that is atopic—a Futurist nightmare in which she is imprisoned without contact with others of her kind. And Charles Amirkhanian’s 1994 piece "Mental Radio" is made up of several movements, primarily of sound collage and sound poetry, prominently featuring Amirkhanian’s rhythmic and mesmerizing text-sound composition style alongside sampled field recordings.
