All are welcome to join this event on Tuft’s Medford campus featuring an introductory presentation by Gregory Whitehead, a revelatory exploration of radio space as a context for understanding radio opera in relationship to the radiobody. Yvette Janine Jackson will present a 45 minute program featuring three of her radio opera works, including Invisible People (A Radio Opera): Episode One -Deliverance. Jackson's Invisible People is a series of compositions based on the negative outpouring that followed Barack Obama's approval of marriage equality and the silence of the invisible people whose voices were excluded from the media. The "libretto" is from found text from sources including sermons, speeches, religious literature, reparation therapy brochures, and internet trolls.

Audience Q&A with the artists to follow.

Gregory Whitehead is an internationally influential and acclaimed radiomaker, audio artist, sound poet, singer of tales and media philosopher. Traversing more than four decades, his work celebrates radiophonic space as an infinite medium of poetic navigation and free association.

Yvette Janine Jackson is a composer of electroacoustic, chamber, and orchestral musics for concert, theatre, and installation. Building on her experience as a theatrical sound designer, she blends various forms into her own aesthetic of radio opera that draws from history to examine relevant social issues.

Turn out Friday: Satellite Pipes

Remis Sculpture Courte, Aidekman Arts Center, Tufts University

Lunch and Artist Talk with Heidi Neilson amidst her installation. Heidi Neilson's installation, Sonic Planetarium: Satellite Pipes, is comprised of prints along the Koppelman entrance wall and sculptural and sound elements suspended from Remis’s beams, an audio installation channelling satellites in earth’s orbit, in real time. Sound files representing individual satellites play as the actual objects pass overhead…as if you can hear into space.

Turn out Friday: DIY Radio Transmitter Building Workshop

Friday, April 5, 2019, 2:30 - 5 p.m.
Koppelman Gallery, Tufts University
40 Talbot Ave, Medford, MA 02155 
RSVP required: artgallery@tufts.edu

Huge media companies increasingly control radio stations across the US. Take back the airwaves by building a low-power FM transmitter! In this workshop, lead by Jeff Thompson, you’ll learn to solder a portable, battery-powered transmitter capable of broadcasting music, interviews, field recordings, or whatever weird sounds you want to send into the world. We’ll talk about how FM radio works, Part 15 compliance, and the basics of soldering, then we’ll assemble transmitters together and test them out in a collaborative transmission jam. No experience with electronics, soldering, or audio necessary!


Also at the Tufts University Art Galleries Aidekman / Medford: Public Art Installation on View: Go GOES Radiotelescope by Heidi Nielson.

Thursday and Friday's events are part of two days of activities celebrating the culmination of the 2018/2019 academic year-long "Wave Farm (in residence) at Tufts University Art Galleries".

Announcing the 
WGXC Station Soundmark

Created by Scott Kellerhouse and Justin Calder.


In conjunction with the launch of WGXC's new sound and new program schedule in 2019, Wave Farm held an open call for a Station Soundmark[1] earlier this month. This brief station sonic identification--an audio earworm--will soon air with intense frequency on Wave Farm's WGXC 90.7-FM and online radio stream. 

[1] Soundmark: This is derived from the term landmark. A soundmark is a sound which is unique to an area. In his 1977 book, "The Soundscape: Our Sonic Environment and the Tuning of the World," R. Murray Schafer wrote, "Once a Soundmark has been identified, it deserves to be protected, for soundmarks make the acoustic life of a community unique." p. 10. ISBN 978-089281455-8.

Wave Farm thanks you for your support.

Wave Farm remains tirelessly committed to making the airwaves a participatory medium. A pioneer of the Transmission Arts genre, Wave Farm programs provide access to transmission technologies and support artists and organizations that engage with media as an art form.

These activities are made possible, in part, from state and federal art grants, foundation support, earned income derived from studio rentals and special curatorial/consulting engagements, and from private support from individuals like you. Listeners, attendees, and collaborators support provides a critical piece to keeping Wave Farm programs afloat, and we are grateful to the many individuals who have shown their generosity past, present, and future.


Wave Farm programs are made possible, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; the National Endowment for the Arts; The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts; the Greene County Legislature through the County Initiative Program, administered in Greene County by the Greene County Council on the Arts; the Alexander and Marjorie Hover Foundation; the Foundation for Contemporary Arts; the T. Backer Fund; the Joseph Family Charitable Trust; and hundreds of other generous individual donors.
