WGXC Afternoon Show: Radio Amnion with Abinadi Meza
90.7-FM in NY's Upper Hudson Valley and wgxc.org/listen everywhere
Hosted by Kieran Riley (Monday); Randall Martin, Kim Singletary (1st, 3rd Tuesday); Randall Martin (2nd, 4th Tuesday); a rotating collection of hosts (Wednesday); Tom DePietro, Selha Graham (Thursday); Tom Roe (Friday, Saturday); Azouke Legba, Carline Murphy (Sunday).
In the 5 p.m. hour, we are pleased to present Abinadi Meza's Chorion: A Film an experimental composition made with analog electronics and materials (such as an electrified wire gently touched to metal), anticipating the full Snow Moon of February. Created for Radio Amnion, the intention is to unfold a protean bliss, an exchange between forms, and transmit blooms of color into the abyssal dark. Chorion: A Film is intended to be a sonic space for dreaming.
RADIO AMNION: SONIC TRANSMISSIONS OF CARE IN OCEANIC SPACE is a multi-year sound art project for the waters of Earth, commissioning and relaying new compositions by contemporary artists more than 2kms deep with/in the Pacific Ocean. During each full moon, far beyond human perception, the abyssal waters of Cascadia Basin resonate with the deep frequencies and voices of invited artists. All transmissions are relayed in the sea through a submerged neutrino telescope experiment’s calibration system and available at https://radioamnion.net/ during the three days of each full moon. Beginning this month Wave Farm Radio and WGXC 90.7-FM: Radio for Open Ears will also broadcast each new composition.
The show features local news, interviews with community leaders and personalities, a rundown of local and regional events, weather updates, and more about and for the community. The show is a place for a community conversation about issues, with music, and more. Saturday the emphasis is more on radio art, and art on the radio. Unlike shows by individual programmers on the station, the "WGXC Afternoon Show" is considered partially station-run. The Sunday version calls itself "Li Le, Le Tan."
