free103point9 is pleased to participate in the inaugural Megapolis Audio Art & Documentary Festival in Boston this April. Radio 4x4: Megapolis (Saturday, April 25, 9-10 p.m., Elk’s Lodge, 55 Bishop Allen Dr, Central Square, Cambridge) will feature performances by Joshua Fried, Tom Roe, Ryan Holsopple (31 Down), and Bryan Zimmerman (The Dust Dive). Radio 4x4 is a collaborative radio transmission performance. Four simultaneous audio performances are separately sent through FM transmitters tuned to different frequencies and are picked up by radios positioned throughout a performance space and tuned to those four frequencies. The audience becomes an active collaborator in the performance, "mixing" the audio feeds by moving about the space among the four signals. Celebrating the spirit of the festival's mission, this series will provide an opportunity for unique collaborations and content creation specific to the community of artists brought together for Megapolis.

free103point9 transmission artist Joshua Fried will also perform his "Radio Wonderland" on the opening night of the festival, and transmission artists Ann Heppermann and Kara Oehler (with Jason Cady) will present their "Chorus of Refuge" at the event. Megapolis is a weekend-long festival dedicated to the craft of DIY audio creation. Artists, documentarians, musicians, and fans come together to share secrets on producing and presenting challenging audio works online, on-air, and on the stage.
