Doug Kaplan (Mr. DougDoug)

Live Broadcast: Wednesday, September 12 (aka Tuesday night), midnight - 1 a.m. and

WGXC 90.7-FM, or wavefarm.org/listen

Inspired by Douglas Kahn’s piece "Reagan Speaks for Himself" (1980), in which Kahn carefully edits together Ronald Reagan interviews to concoct a hilarious and surreal story, “Ira Glass Speaks for Himself” is a proposed long-form troll radioplay in which one of radio’s most recognizable voices is mercilessly edited to tell a mind-boggling, magical realism-core, ambling non-story.

As MrDougDoug, Doug Kaplan explores the possibilities of electro-acoustic improvisation and guitar performance in the trio Good Willsmith, while showcasing his peers’ genre-bending electronic music as a co-founder of the Hausu Mountain label. In recent years, Kaplan has directed his attention towards the excesses of the Internet, using the WWW’s hidden treasures and meme culture as source material for his compositions. http://mrdougdoug.bandcamp.com

Clara Lou

In-residence: September 21 - 30, 2018
Live Broadcast: Saturday, September 29, 2018, 4 - 6 p.m.
WGXC 90.7-FM, or wavefarm.org/listen

"Soft Broadcast Spectre Sound" is a radio play, mixed live where multiple transmission frequencies serve as both instrumentation and performers. The live mix is performed by moving the radio dial in a structured improvisation. For example, one character's lines may be transmitted on 87.9-FM and another character's lines on 87.7-FM. Lou moves the dial back and forth between the two frequencies in order to "perform" the dialogue. The imperfections of transmission technology are also considered, as signal bleed is embraced and intentional. Commercial radio is integrated the performance, allowing Top 40, Bible radio, and so on to intersperse with the artist's original recordings. Lou’s fractured narrative incorporates Foley sounds, derived from tools and toys in the Wave Farm broadcast studio and augmented by household items, but here the artist employs a craft usually oriented towards making scene more easily graspable, to complicate the narrative space.

Clara Lou is an artist who works with text, sound, and performance, producing radio drama using non-linear narrative, layered voices, and a combination of found and homemade music and sound effects. Lou's work is frequently presented as installation, broadcast live on old radios using FM transmitters. http://claralou.net/

Wave Farm (in residence) at Tufts University Art Galleries 2018-2019

In Medford: Heidi Neilson
In Boston: Jeff Thomson and SMFA 1630-AM + at wavefarm.org/listen

Wave Farm is pleased to present work by Heidi Neilson, Jeff Thompson, and radio station SMFA 1630-AM for TuftsPUBLIC, a new program of yearlong temporary public art projects designed for spaces outside the Tufts University Galleries.

At the SMFA at Tufts, in Boston, Jeff Thompson's "Every Radio Station" makes the FM spectrum physical through an installation of 96 hand-built FM radios along the Weems Atrium central staircase. 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. In the library at the SMFA at Tufts, is a low-power AM Radio Station available at 1630-AM and as an online webstream. The AM station will host experimental sound works, as well as interviews with visiting artists and programming from faculty and classes, and also broadcast Wave Farm's creative community station WGXC 90.7-FM as well as other Wave Farm project streams.

On the Medford campus, Heidi Neilson's projects make the impossibly distant world of outer space suddenly palpable. The installation is comprised of prints along the Koppelman entrance wall and, beginning in November sculptural and sound elements suspended from Remis’s beams: "Satellite Pipes," an audio installation channelling satellites in earth’s orbit, in real time. Neilson's "Go GOES Radiotelescope" includes a video and drawing installed inside Remis. The Radiotelescope itself--a portable station for receiving images and weather information from NOAA geostationary spacecraft--will be installed outdoors in late September and again in April. By sitting in the chair and looking through the viewport of the radiotelescope, the viewer is aligned with the GOES geostationary satellite located 22,236 miles away. Read more.
