Making Waves: Remote Connections with Prachi Khandekar and GOODW.Y.N. (Audio)

Mar 11, 2023
Produced by New Adventures in Sound Art.

Today's episode of Making Waves focuses on two artists from the Deep Wireless 17 Radio Art Album. Darren Copeland talks to Nicole Goodwin in New York who under the name GOODW.Y.N. and with the help of her collaborator Michael Carr (aka Face Mason), wrote and recorded Inner Spaces: Live From Quarantine. In their words, "Inner Spaces is born of a parallel world to ours. It is the voice of revolution in a society gone mad, the voice of hope for the hopeless." In the second half of the show Copeland talks to Prachi Khandekar in Montréal whose piece "The Tracker" is part of an online media piece called “Circuits of Sand and Water.” The binaural audio production, as Khandekar explains in her notes, "is a story about a woman battling isolation in the pandemic. She starts watching her neighbours from her window. Soon, she is compelled to get closer and hacks into their devices... It explores what it feels like to balance an animal urge for connection with the mechanical logic of progress."
