Angel Nevarez and Valerie Tevere: AIRtime visiting artist on WGXC 90.7-FM (Audio)
Jun 18, 2011
In conversation with Galen Joseph-Hunter.
A live broadcast, on WGXC 90.7-FM, from internationally renowned artists Angel Nevarez & Valerie Tevere, featuring an interview, playlist of works important to their artistic practice, and a special broadcast of the radio play What we might have heard in the future. Originally performed live on October 9, 2010 during the opening events of Manifesta 8 at Museo Hidráulico Molinos del Río Segura, and broadcast live on Onda Regional de Murcia 105.3 FM, Murcia, Spain, What we might have heard in the future. is a science-fiction based radio drama that investigates history in the future tense. This Spanish language broadcast considers the future's implementation of voice recognition technologies and questions the particular use of behavioral biometrics as authentication and validation of one's subjectivity. Such narrows parameters bring into question structures of power as processes of inclusion and exclusion in regard to representation and the voice. Angel Nevarez & Valerie Tevere have engaged in an artistic practice that focuses on architectures of broadcast, the particularities of historical resistant moments associated with the medium of radio, the re-articulation of radio programming, and the radio ‘voice’. Specific interests lie in the archeology of the medium’s history, the study of its architectural residues and monuments, and in considering new possibilities for the broadcast spectrum as discursive public space.
