TRANSMISSION ART ARCHIVE
Echo Roe is a student at Cairo-Durham High School in upstate New York, class of 2024. She has been immersed in experimental radio environments since birth. (Her parents founded Wave Farm in New York’s Upper Hudson Valley.) As an elementary and middle-schooler, Roe hosted two different recurring half-hour radio shows on Wave Farm’s WGXC 90.7-FM. “Radio Camp” (2014-2016) was a weekly youth radio program focused on the act of radio making and experimenting with sound. “EchoSystem” (2017-2018) was a weekly live broadcast where friends came together to talk, learn, and experiment with sound, music, and radio live from the Wave Farm studio in Acra, NY.
In 2022, Echo is working on a 22-hour radio commission for Radio Art Zone, a 100-day radio art station for Esch2022, which will be broadcast in the south of Luxembourg by Radio ARA on 87.8 FM. It will also be live-streamed for a worldwide audience and transmitted by a network of international partners.
The Radio Art Zone schedule consists of two daily programmes: newly-commissioned 22-hour radio productions created by more than 100 international and local artists, and 2-hour live shows from kitchens in the community.
Additionally Radio Art Zone offers artist residencies, workshops, youth productions plus interventions in public space, opening up participatory opportunities for residents and visitors to the Capital of Culture region.
