The Wave Farm Residency Program is pleased to welcome John Wiese (Cleveland, OH). His “Time Column” is a non-linear sound work, consisting of vertical disruptions imposed on sounds sources culled from site-specific origins and processes at Wave Farm. Leveraging the unique characteristic of the radio medium, in order to create a cinema of the ear, “Time Column” will be transmitted through airwaves, simultaneously experiencing a transformation, part automation, part installation, part concrète diffusion.

John Wiese’s artistic practice crosses many disciplines, but often shares conceptual similarities to musique concrète and is expressed through fixed recorded works, diffusions, performance, and installations. A celebrated artist in the field of sound, Wiese considers radio an integral part of his practice and has performed on a great variety of stations including KXLU, Dublab, WFMU, and PS1 Art Radio. Most recently, in 2016, Wiese was invited to perform at the Ina/GRM’s Présences Électronique Festival along with a residency at their multi-channel studio in the basement of Radio France.
