"Scanner: A Retrospective in Seven Parts"
This seven-part series focuses on the extraordinary work of Scanner (British artist Robin Rimbaud) who traverses the experimental terrain between sound, space, image and form, creating absorbing, multi-layered sound pieces that twist technology in unconventional ways. From his early controversial work using found mobile phone conversations, through to his focus on trawling the hidden noise of the modern metropolis his restless explorations of the experimental terrain have won him international admiration. free103point9 is delighted to be working with the artist on this special broadcast event February 3-9, 2013 from midnight to 6 a.m. Each night, the broadcast will focus on a specific theme including live performance, sound installation, dance scores, film scores, composition, and radio works.
