Radio Lab and Radio 4x4 for Untitled 2002 (he promised)
August 19, 2007 : 2pm - 5pm

with Tianna Kennedy, Todd Merrell, Michelle Nagai, ben owen, Tom Roe

at Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, 1071 5th Ave., Manhattan.

free103point9 is pleased to present an afternoon of programming for Rirkrit Tiravanija's "Untitled 2002 (he promised)" installation currently on view in the Guggenheim's summer exhibition "The Shapes of Space." All ages welcome.

Radio Lab 2 p.m.
Lead by artist free103point9 Program Director Tom Roe

free103point9 Radio Labs provide students with technical skills and contextual background to consider and utilize the transmission spectrum for creative expression. Workshops are broken down into three main sections: the history of broadcasting; how transmitters work: and transmission arts as a creative medium

Radio 4x4 4 p.m.
With artists Tianna Kennedy, Todd Merrell, Michelle Nagai, and ben owen.

Radio 4x4 is a collaborative radio transmission performance. Four simultaneous audio performances are separately sent through FM transmitters to radios positioned throughout a performance space. Each radio receives only one of the signals, so that the audience becomes an active collaborator in the performance, "mixing" the audio feeds by moving about the space among the four signals.


Tianna Kennedy
Tianna Kennedy is a Brooklyn, New York-based cellist, sound and transmission artist, consultant, curator, events coordinator, and writer. Though projects vary greatly, they are all underscored by her commitment to egalitarian and participatory practices and can be viewed as performative experiments in gift economies and social sculpture.

Todd Merrell
Since 1978 Todd Merrell has been fascinated with the imperceptible environment of electromagnetic radiation that shortwave radio and processing can capture, and transform into an immersive, musical environment. He has since developed these techniques and incorporated them into a larger, more visually and sonically evocative world, with an emphasis on live performance, and the thrilling contingency and danger that such site- and time- specifically dependent work produces.

Michelle Nagai
Brooklyn-based composer Michelle Nagai utilizes sound, physicality and concept to create site-specific performances, installations, radio broadcasts, dances, walks and other interactions that address the human state in relationship to its setting. These works and activities explore the exchange of perception between performer and audience/viewer.

ben owen
ben owen is based in brooklyn NY and works with sound, transmission, light, and print. Owen's current work includes sound and light installation, weekly internet radio, experimental composition, improvised performance, and score based performance.

Tom Roe
Tom Roe is a sound transmission artist sometimes known as DJ Dizzy. He co-founded microradio stations 87X in Tampa, Florida and free103point9 in Brooklyn, New York. Roe performs with transmitters and receivers using multiple bands (FM, CB, walkie-talkie), as well as prepared CDs, vinyl records, and various electronics. He creates radio soundscapes using locally available frequencies, often to the beat of manipulated pop song samples.

((((( The World Wide Tuning Meditation (2007) )))))

August 21, 2007 : 7pm - 9pm

The World Wide Tuning Meditation (2007)

at Damrosch Park at Lincoln Center, Manhattan

What sound turns you on? Blending performer and public, noted composer Pauline Oliveros will lead a World Wide Tuning Meditation, an interactive "sound-a-long" in which the audience becomes an instrument and those in attendance and in other parts of the world through free103point9's online radio transmission have their chance to make beautiful music together. Exhilarating and delightful, The Tuning Meditation is a unique sonic event for simultaneous voices participating worldwide and at Lincoln Center. Oliveros supplies the score, you supply your tone. For friends and family who participate in this event, you can visit the Deep Listening website to get a score and register in advance. Audiences members will also be treated to the EHRES (Extreme High Risk Entertainment System) featuring Oliveros in a quartet of performers -- Ione (spoken word/electronics), John D. S. Adams (modular electronics), Norman Adams (cello/electronics) and Oliveros (accordion/electronics) -- employing a groundbreaking system of acoustic and electronic interconnections for live performance. EHRES creates multilayered networks of connections allowing all sounds to be shared, processed and distributed to a multi-channel sound system.

free103point9 will coordinate eight radio signals from around the world beaming in their performances to be part of the show at Lincoln Center.

Radio stations/groups contributing include Lemurie TAZ (Czech Republic) (Berlin, Germany), Radio Corax (Halle, Germany), Neighborhood Public Radio (San Francisco, United States), sounDart (United Kingdom), and performers in Minneapolis, Montreal, north of Montreal.

((((( Animals )))))

August 25, 2007 : 2pm - 8pm


with Latitude/Longitude, Evolution Revolution, Dan Saxton Bunny, S.M.O. (Slink Moss Orchestra), Guitar Trips, Flaming Fire, Animental, Melanie Moser, Owl, Cabinet of Natural Curiosities, Horse Spirit Penetrates

at Wave Farm, 5622 Route 23
Acra, New York 12405

Artists performing works on the theme of "Animals." Curated by Slink Moss.
A portion of the proceeds goes to Animal Kind.
Audio and video streamed live on free103point9 Online Radio.

Performers confirmed so far:
Evolution Revolution: From Albany Times Union: "Led by the one and only reel-to-reel tape manipulator Jason Martin, the band not only sings Martin's quirky fauna-friendly anthems, but the floating membership of musicians also regularly performs in animal costumes, too."

Dan Saxton Bunny From Justin Stewart review in The Wire of Bunny Brains set at "Campfire Sounds 2006" at Wave Farm: "Beefheart disciples...feral freak-act...head-scratching mindfuck circus show."

Latitude/Longitude: Brooklyn-based free103point9 Transmission Artists Michael Garofalo and Patrick McCarthy began performing as Latitude/Longitude in 2004. Teasing melodies out of prepared and alternately tuned guitars while electronics murmur in a nest of instrument cables at their feet, the duo weave electro-acoustic dream songs from cross-circuit chaos.

S.M.O. (Slink Moss Orchestra) From Mark Guarino, Daily Herald: "Moss is an enigma, with a persona more in line with voodoo wildman Screamin' Jay Hawkins and T. Rex.... Vocally, Moss is Buddy Holly without the hiccups."

Guitar Trips: From Mike Wood in foxy digitalis: "Guitar Trips is New Yorker Doug Anson, who makes a joyful solo noise on his axe, creating bluesy, trippy sound loops with plenty of sonic paths to follow. The lo-fi, recorded in a bedroom feel adds to the richness, as if this is a series of improvs done quietly, out of sight and only for self-satisfaction."

Flaming Fire: �Well, at least some of the kooks have stuck it out in New York City and they are in Flaming Fire, an awesomely kooky, theatrical band singing songs of biblical plagues and Egyptian sexual practices. Picture the Butthole Surfers, the Residents, the Manson Family, and the B-52s all running amok in a Kenneth Anger film.� -Meg Sneed, Vice.

Animental: Animental is an outlet for expression in its purest form, drawing inspiration from animals. Animental explores the ideas of innate reactions and behavior of animals vs. the programmed or acceptable actions of the human animal. It hopes to empower the individual who is performing as well as transport the audience to another realm of reality. Inspiration, freedom, hope, creativity, individuality, power, and feminism are things Animental hopes to transpire. We use sound, costumes, movement, storytelling, props, lights and what ever else the participants and performers bring.

Melanie Moser: "Adult contemporary psych."

BBC Radio and in "We Make Money Not Art," Time Out New York,
the New York Post, and several other journals.

"Canal Street Station" is a free public media art installation set
in the Canal Street Subway Station in New York City. Participants
are invited to make a toll-free call from any public payphone in the
Canal Street station (inside of the turnstyles). Participants will
then be guided on a pay phone mystery. The game takes
approximately 45 minutes to complete.

Tajna Tanovic stars in this public pay phone who-dunnit setin
the maze of tiles that make up the Canal Street subway station.
This is an interactive piece that challenges participants to test
their skills at listening and following directions. Players are put
in the shoes of Mike Sharpie, private investigator, as he searches
the depths of Canal Street Station for a young French woman that
may have committed a murder, or may be a figment of Mike's
wandering imagination.

To play, call this toll-free number from a pay phone inside the station:

"Canal Street Station" is co-produced by 31 Down radio theater
and free103point9 and presented by free103point9 as part
of the transmission arts non-profit's Tenth Anniversary celebration.
Created by: Ryan Holsopple, Shannon Sindelar, Mirit Tal,

About free103point9

free103point9 is a non-profit arts organization focused on
establishing and cultivating Transmission Arts. This genre includes
experimental practices in radio art, video art, light sculpture, and
installation and performance utilizing the electromagnetic spectrum.
With locations in Upstate and Brooklyn, New York, free103point9
activities support and promote artists exploring transmission
frequencies for creative expression. free103point9 programs include
public performances and exhibitions, an experimental music series, an
online radio station and distribution label, an education initiative,
and an artist residency program and study center.

Founded in 1997 as a microcasting artist collective in Brooklyn, NY,
free103point9's mobile operations made airtime available to community
voices, local bands, and most significantly to a group of under-served
artists shaping conceptual works specifically for radio transmission.

free103point9 defines "Transmission Arts" as a conceptual umbrella
that unites a community of artists and audiences interested in
transmission ideas and tools. Transmission practices harness, occupy
and/or respond to the airwaves that surround us. There is an inherent
"liveness" to this work. In a performance-based setting, audience
members are newly engaged, becoming participants rather than passive
viewers and listeners. Installation or sculptural transmission works
are often dependant on the present, reacting to whatever occupies the
surrounding frequencies in a single instance, or changing that
information by adding new signals to the spectral environment.
