Radio Dialogues is a daily ritual conducted over seven days while in-residence at Wave Farm. Two low power transmitters and radio receivers are positioned just outside of normal "earshot" range from one another. On one end is Kennedy and on the other a Hudson Valley-based collaborating artist. Two-way radio transmission unites the otherwise physically isolated artists in time and place and provides a framework for improvisational and site-specific performance.

Kathy Kennedy is a vocal artist who oscillates between sound art and music. She uses low watt transmission as a central axis for the exploration of physical space. Using only the voice and a few electronic devices, she makes music that engages with the physicality of being in a particular place.
