Radio Deprogramming Workshop Audio (Long Version) (Audio)

Feb 28, 2022
Produced by Andy Stuhl.

In February 2022, Wave Farm’s Radio Deprogramming workshop convened a diverse, international group of media artists and radio practitioners around a proposition to critically examine and creatively invert the usual routines that structure the radio medium. Christof Migone’s Radio Naked provided a central inspiration for the workshop, which culminated with participants drafting short “deprogramming” prompts and then producing audio interpretations of each other’s prompts. This hour-long broadcast piece gathers all 29 of these short sound works, intermixed with the audio versions of Radio Naked’s 22 prompts (in addition to Migone, contributors to these include Jennifer Cherniak, Amos Latteier, Chris Myhr, and Gintas Tirillis). The recording also includes a series of excerpts from the Radio Deprogramming listening syllabus, featuring sound from John Cage and Morton Feldman, Shelley Pope, Sherre DeLys and Rick Moody with John Lurie, and Anna Friz and Emmanuel Madan; as well as a collaborative sound collage experiment that workshop participant Justin Maiman subsequently produced for his show on WGXC, the Ginger Radio Hour. It includes an introduction from Andy Stuhl, Wave Farm’s 2021-2022 Radio Artist Fellow. Other contributors to the workshop’s audio prompts include Melike Ceylan, Kirsten Chervinsky, Nicolas Montgermont, Matthew Flores, Russell Gendron, Justin Maiman, Ricardo Iamuuri Robinson, Ed Woodham, Andrew Madey, Celeste Oram, Stephen Bradley, Sadie Couture, Stacey Copeland, Jin Zhu, Michelle O’Connor, and Melissa Sarris.
