Hexagon Heart is a sound poem/musical story of Marjorie Van Halteren’s emigration to France in 1992 and what has become of her heart. Hexagon Heart was a Radiophrenia commission produced with the support of Creative Scotland.
Originally made for a 5.1 surround sound scenario, Reel It Reels is an exploration into the slips between confidence and reticence when voicing questions and statements about positioning. The jumble of sounds attempt to give the manipulated, uncertain voice a rhythmic home, holding it temporarily so that the utterances have something to rub against. https://soundcloud.com/rebeccawilcox
This monthly program features highlights and commissions from Glasgow art radio station Radiophrenia.
Presented on an annual basis, Radiophrenia is a temporary art radio station – a two-week exploration into current trends in sound and transmission arts. Broadcasting live from Glasgow’s Centre for Contemporary Arts, the station promoted radio as an art form, encouraging challenging and radical new approaches to the medium. Each year, the broadcast schedule includes a series of newly commissioned radio works, live shows, pre-recorded features and 12 Live-to-Air performances. The majority of the program is made up from selections submitted to an international open call for sound art and radio works. Radiophrenia is managed by Mark Vernon and Barry Burns and is funded through Creative Scotland’s Open Project Funding with additional support from CCA Glasgow.
