Radio Wonderland: 20230318 (Audio)
Mar 18, 2023
Live from Brooklyn, New York, "Radio Wonderland" (aka composer-performer Joshua Fried) turns the very bits and bytes of commercial culture into the driving backbeat to our dance of independence. "Radio Wonderland" abstracts live FM radio with laptop, electrified shoes hit with sticks, and a computer-hacked steering wheel (from a Buick 6). "Radio Wonderland" software creations include The Reshuffler (deploy slices of radio on a rhythmic grid making instant techno 90 percent of the time) the Re-Esser (extract the sibilance, play those S's, T's and K's like a drum machine,) and Anything Kick (morph slowed-down radio into a bass drum to shake the dance floor).
