WGXC 90.7-FM: Radio for Open Ears

90.7-FM in NY's Upper Hudson Valley and wgxc.org/listen everywhere

WGXC is working with Japanther and RPI's EMPAC for a live broadcast on WGXC 90.7-FM. Japanther’s performance is commissioned in conjunction with Quote Unquote: Experiments in Time-Based Text, an interdisciplinary series presenting work by artists that use an existing text as a departure point for installation, film, and performance. For this new performance, music, video, and performance draw parallel lines between the three industrial archetypes, with Japanther + collaborators utilizing fragments of their environment to envision a utopian creative endgame.

The Japanther performance at EMPAC will be broadcast at 8 p.m. on 90.7-FM. At 9:30 p.m., "Hotline Radio" comes on 90.7-FM, and the Japanther performance, if still going on, will be available on a webstream, at http://comm.free103point9.org:8000/troy.mp3.m3u. The webstream will be at that address live beginning at 7 p.m. We have tested everything, and it is all working.

Japanther is an art project established circa 2001 by Ian Vanek and Matt Reilly in Brooklyn, New York. In addition to wild interactive live showings in unconventional settings, the duo has collaborated with Dan Graham, Gelitin, Eileen Myles, ninjasonik, and Spank Rock, among others. Japanther was featured in the 2006 Whitney Biennial as part of Don’t Trust Anyone Over Thirty and the 2011 Venice Biennial as part of Gelitin's Some Like It Hot performance. The duo has made a name for themselves through unique performance situations including shows with synchronized swimmers, oversized puppets, from out of the back of a moving truck, alongside giant dinosaurs, and with BMXers flying off the walls of the Whitney sculpture garden.
