Loud Luggage / Booming Baggage (Audio)

Feb 21, 2023
Created by GX Jupitter-Larsen (2019). Introduced by Tyler Maxin.

On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the Kunstradio program on ORF in Austria, GX Jupitter-Larsen performed Loud Luggage / Booming Baggage, in which he used a modified transistor radio to interfere with the signals from his two amplified suitcases. The artist has performed variations of this set-up in a number of configurations, both as radio broadcast and live performance, solo and in collaboration with other musicians and artists. Jupitter-Larsen has referred to the performance as a “sonic reference to the xylowave,” a concept of his own invention that he defines as the “distance between nothing and something.” - Introduced by Wave Farm Radio Art Fellow 2022-2023, Tyler Maxin
