Broadcasting live from CCA, Radiophrenia is a temporary FM art radio station - a week-long exploration into current trends in sound and transmission arts. Radiophrenia aims to promote radio as an art form, encouraging experimental approaches to the medium that are not catered for by mainstream stations. Bringing you the best in local and international radio art, the station will be broadcasting 7-days a week, 24-hours a day. The majority of the programme will be made up from work submitted through an open call and will include; soundscapes, spoken word, documentary, drama, radio experiments, found sound, challenging and radical new programme ideas.
The schedule will include live shows and pre-recorded features as well as a series of specially commissioned ‘live-to-air’ performances at 7pm each day. Selected artists have been asked to respond to the unique circumstances of creating a work that is simultaneously a live performance and a radio broadcast, reflecting the fact that there will be an audience present in the theatre in addition to an unseen audience of listeners at home. Commissioned artists include Felix Kubin, The Resonance Radio Orchestra, Peter Lanceley, Shelly Nadashi, Jim Colquhoun, Kathryn Elkin, Nichola Scrutton, Julia Scott and Elizabeth Veldon.
