Bells, Bugs, Whispers & Plinks: Inaudible Audible (Audio)

Mar 31, 2020
Hosted by Stephen Bradley and Edward Ruchalski.

Bells, Bugs, Whispers & Plinks radio program is inspired by a Wave Farm artist-residency that Bradley and Ruchalski were awarded in summer 2019 that focused on an experimental multi-phonic ecological radio installation informed by Wave Farm’s biophonic and radiophonic ecological soundscape, and creating sound works for radio broadcast based on the Wave Farm sonic environment. Other works featured on the show are based on concepts of serialism and ultra-rationality, acoustic ecology, aleatory and anti-rational, musique concrète, microtonal, lowercase, sound/noise, site-specific installations and interactions, synthetic and ambient phonographic spaces. Please contact Bradley at ( or Ruchalski ( for information about the program or submission inquiries.
