Noise & The Megacity Show Image. Created by Paulus Van Horne (Sep 19, 2019)
Paulus van Horne (they/them/theirs) is a radio maker and noise researcher, living in Andes, NY. Their practice-led research into noise investigates the various systems of power which color our perception of sound. Paulus was awarded a Watson Fellowship in 2017, to survey the qualities of and attitudes towards noise in 10 of the world's megacities. This particular transmission will include "noise" recordings from around South East Asia, Tokyo, Korea and Mexico inter-cut with interviews about sound and noise. Presented in the style of Tokyo's famous listening cafes.
On February 26, Wave Farm's terrestrial radio station, WGXC 90.7-FM turns 13. It’s a powerful thing to reflect on the last thirteen years of this project. So many people have contributed their voices, their time, their talent, and their dollars to keep this outrageous and unconventional station churning and transmitting, and we are grateful.
In this moment, we find ourselves poised for exciting growth, thanks to a recently expanded staff and Board, new energy, a terrific foundation of stalwart volunteer programmers complemented by rapidly joining new radiomakers. With your help, we can embrace the future with strength and enthusiasm.
We continue to work towards generating enough monthly supporters to secure a reliable base of support to meet the station’s basic operation expenses. Once our goal of $5,000 in monthly support is met, we’ll be able to end traditional pledge drives, and focus on making WGXC even more exceptional.
