Produced by Darren Copeland.

Despite consisting of one continuous radio feed recorded in Seoul, South Korea, the hypnotic texture of this 52 minute recording is one of many starting points for considering the spiritual basis of Aki Onda's approach to sound art. “Nam June’s spirit was speaking to me" is the title given to this recording by Aki Onda. It will be broadcast by WGXC Wave Farm, NAISA Radio, and 19 other radio stations between March 27 and June 6. During that time the work will be presented as an invisible micro-radio installation at the Toronto Biannual of Art. Today's episode of Making Waves is book-ended by excerpts of “Nan June’s spirit was speaking to me". In between those segments is a conversation with Aki Onda and host Darren Copeland (starting at 21:39).

This monthly program is produced by New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA). The program features selections from the NAISA archives and is produced by Darren Copeland, NAISA Artistic Director. NAISA is a South River-based Canadian organization that presents performances and installations spanning the entire spectrum of electroacoustic and experimental sound art. The objectives of NAISA are to foster awareness and understanding locally, as well as nationally and internationally, in the cultural vitality of experimental sound art in its myriad forms of expression.
