Wave Farm Residency Program

Deadline: February 1, 2018

The Wave Farm Residency Program provides artists with a valuable opportunity to concentrate on new transmission works and conduct research about the genre using the Wave Farm Study Center resource library. Employing the electromagnetic spectrum, Transmission Art encompasses work in participatory live art or time-based art such as radio, video, light, installation, and performance, as well as a multiplicity of other practices and media, informed by an intentional use of space (often the airwaves). In conjunction with their residencies, artists perform, are interviewed, and create playlists for broadcast on Wave Farm's WGXC 90.7-FM, a creative community radio station serving over 78,000 potential listeners in New York's Upper Hudson Valley, and international listeners online.

Live from Roulette: Bobby Previte’s Rhapsody Band 

Mar 2, 2018 - 8 p.m.
Tune In: wavefarm.org/listen or with the Wave Farm Radio App
Turn Out: Roulette | 509 Atlantic Ave. | Brooklyn, New York 11217

Wave Farm begins live webcasts from Roulette in Brooklyn with this show from Bobby Previte featuring Nels Cline – Acoustic Guitars, John Medeski – Piano, Zeena Parkins – Harp, Jen Shyu – Voice and Er Hu Fiddle, Fabian Rucker – Alto Saxophone, and Bobby Previte – Trap Drums. Visit Roulette's website for information about attending the live performance in person at http://roulette.org/event/bobby-prevites-rhapsody-band/

Rhapsody is an acoustic, narrative song cycle which incorporates written music, improvisation, and vocals with lyrics to create an evening-length performance. Rhapsody twists and turns, landing on song ‘events’ but never ending there, instead, spinning off in other directions, only to land again on a vocal moment, sung by Jen Shyu. Using acoustic harp (Zeena Parkins), piano (John Medeski), acoustic guitars (Nels Cline), alto saxophone (Fabian Rucker) and drums, autoharp, harmonica and percussion (Bobby Previte) the piece places the listener ‘in transit’ — traveling to an unknown place that subtly changes over the course of time, until in the end, they arrive at a surprise destination. Rhapsody is a 60-minute continuous song cycle commissioned by the 2015 Greenfield Prize in Music at the Hermitage Artist Retreat. The recording will be released in March 2018 on RareNoise records.

Celebrate seven years of WGXC 90.7-FM with an evening of live radio theatre. The celebration culminates with a live performance of Hans Flesch's radio play, "Magic on the Radio: An Experimental Airwaves Fantasy" ("Zauberei auf dem Sender"), featuring a cast of WGXC programmers and friends. Also that night, performances by WGXC's Diamond Street Radio Players and 31 Down. Attendees will have the opportunity to enter a raffle for one of two Public Radio Single Station Tuners tuned to WGXC 90.7-FM by enrolling as a Sustaining Supporter, or increasing an extant contribution. The evening is free and open to all ages.

Written in 1924, "Magic on the Radio" depicts chaos surrounding a radio broadcast under siege by conflicting interests and mysterious technical problems. This is the debut of a new translation of the text by Carl Skoggard and Franziska Lamprecht. Featuring: Owen Birth, Brian Dewan, Jeff Economy, Philip Grant, Kamal Johnson, Maria Manhattan, Debby Mayer, Tom Roe, Phyllis Segura, and Carl Skoggard. Directed and produced by Alanna Medlock and Jess Puglisi.

31 Down radio presents "Driftnet": White-hat infosec avenger Mike Sharpie outwits cryptocurrency con-men and ransomware ruffians in a world littered with security flaws and backdoors. If you feel insecure, vulnerable, exploited and tired of digital misdoings, have no fear, Attorney General Jeff Sessions' favorite dark-web do-gooder Mike Sharpie is in your WIFI fighting for your privacy. More about 31 Down at 31down.org

The WGXC Diamond Street Radio Players present "Radio Daze!" Produced and directed by Mat Tombers and Andrew Joffe.

The event will be broadcast live on WGXC 90.7-FM.
