Wave Farm Artist-in-residence: Jeff Thompson

The Wave Farm Residency Program is pleased to welcome Jeff Thompson (Jersey City, NJ). His “Every Radio Station” is a sculptural sound installation composed of 93 hand-made radios, one for every possible station in the FM band. Each radio is equipped with a speaker, letting viewers experience the entire spectrum at once, walk along it, or come in close to hear an individual station. For each geographical location the piece is installed, a totally different sonic experience results, informed by the number, strength, and kind of stations broadcasting in that area. As the terrestrial radio spectrum increasingly gives way to streaming services, “Every Radio Station” will reflect these changes.

The idea of “everything of something” is a recurring and significant thread in Thompson’s work. He is interested in found materials and remix practice, but also seeks to remove the artist’s hand from his work. By presenting every element from a set at once, the result is a sublime whole that is more than the sum of its parts. In “Every Radio Station” the static of non-broadcasting frequencies, hyper-compression of Top-40 stations, and presence or absence of public and community radio will collectively serve as a portrait of both the FM and physical landscapes of the installation’s site-specific location. Tune in to hear Jeff Thompson on the Saturday Afternoon Show on June 24 from 4 - 6 p.m.

Explore the artistry and impact of clandestine radio June 2 - 4, 2017 at UnionDocs.

Led by low-power radio ethnographer Christina Dunbar-Hester and in partnership with Wave Farm, this three-day intensive will teach you the skills and tools you need to embark on your own radio activism and community building radio projects.

In a stew of intimate electronics, bad poetry, and tender murk, we swap tongues and reach for more. For this new regular program on Wave Farm Radio and WGXC 90.7-FM, Olivia's Radio RavioliOlivia Bradley-Skill creates a special two-hour edit of her weekly overnight show on WFMU. Olivia Bradley-Skill likes digging up old sensations to find new meaning. Her radio work is a live collage, which warps, overlaps, and extends sound and language, so as to intensify the medium's interactive and elusive qualities. She uses radio to represent the mind, how we listen, and how we forget what we remember.
