Radius: January 2013 in Chicago

Jan 02, 2013 2:56 pm
Radius Episode 35 is hosted by Hugo Paquete. Hugo Paquete (b. 1979, Portugal) is an Intermedia and sound artist, professor of sound art at Escola Superior Artística do Porto, Portugal (ESAP), and is the head of the Institute of Viral Sonology. His research uses concepts about space and microtonality as visual and audible ecosystems according to spatial and psychological characteristics. He uses technical elements and practices from field recording to computer generated sound synthesizing and audio spatialization in his work.

Radius broadcasts "Radial Transference." "Radial Transference" pretends to understand the possible relationship between two distinct spaces. These spaces, recorded using a field recording technique, with transfers and contamination between them on an atomic scale, reflect conflict, causality and turbulence. The piece generates a compositional sound universe as an entropic dynamic locus of a new ontology. Hugo Paquete explores granular projections of sound in order to build small phrases that articulate and turn over the piece with rhythmic variations and noise. Read more.

Radius will transmit "Radial Transference" for four consecutive Wednesdays (January 2, 9, 16, 23) and on Thursday, January 17 to coincide with Art’s Birthday at 1 p.m. CST. Radius is an experimental radio broadcast platform based in Chicago, IL, USA. Radius features a new project monthly with statements by artists who use radio as a primary element in their work. Radius provides artists with live and experimental formats in radio programming. The goal is to support work that engages the tonal and public spaces of the electromagnetic spectrum. All audio works are broadcasted locally on 88.9-FM with a secondary stream online.
