Radio Research

2021
August Black

At the heart of August Black's residency period is a prototypical web application that aims to catalyze new forms of live interactive radio for the purpose of growing communities, making speculative acoustic situations, and enabling grassroots initiatives. The software allows multiple constituents to fluidly participate in broadcast-like scenarios through their mobile devices at the flick of their thumbs. It works in a browser, requires no downloads, and is meant to be frictionless, quick, and easy. Black will host workshops on-site (covid permitting) with the software, solicit ideas and interaction from the local community, and conduct daily radio experiments outside the studio with various local and remote participants (TBD).
