Nothing Is Real Radio Hour: Feedback Virus (Audio)

Oct 31, 2020
Created by Sam Sebren.

For this special Halloween edition of NIRRH, host/creator Sam Sebren premieres an experimental composition, Feedback Virus that he’s been working on in collaboration with 11 friends from near and far, during these pandemic times. The piece originates from feedback sounds Sebren produced using a turntable, and then collaborators contributed more sounds to that, which Sebren then deconstructed and reconfigured with further sounds and alterations.

The immense project began in July 2020 as a way to connect with colleagues, and now also with radio listeners, through the universal language of sound during this difficult time of upheaval and unrest. Collaborators for this project are: Alfredo Caballero (Managua, Nicaragua), Charles Cure (Syracuse/Albany, NY), John Hoge (Kingston, NY), J. Lee (San Francisco, CA), Karen Mantler (Krumville, NY), Sam Rosen (Great Barrington, MA), Jess Rowland (NYC), Tom Smith (Hannover, Germany), Logan Visscher (Hudson, NY), Weasel Walter (NYC), and Kyle Winslow (Athens, NY).
