Scan, the default tool, which is available on most vehicle radios, is used in Scanning not as a temporary method of searching, but as an experience in itself. If this mode is no longer used as only a practical means for biased programming, but is acknowledged as an end in itself, then a rhythmic modular inventory is generated that presents living chunks of broadcasted zeitgeist.
Scanning consists of continuous replays of Chicago FM station scans from the very immediate past.
Episode 39 will host Jesse Eric Schmidt. Jesse Eric Schmidt is a process-oriented conceptualist who uses actions and objects to interrogate and reconfigure methodologies surrounding art. He has formal education in architecture, psychology and kinesiology, and received his MFA in New Genres on a merit-based fellowship at the San Francisco Art Institute. He makes art in and about everyday situations in order to deconstruct, provoke, and rearrange ideas about our behavioral lures and their implicative consequences. He uses art practice to keep curiosity rigorous through designing projects that advance questions.
The Upstate Soundscape, a radio show that plays experimental music and sound that airs on 91.3-FM WBNY in Buffalo, NY, USA, announced an open call for submissions to Radius’ 2013 broadcast schedule.
