Art Talk Chicago included Radius’ installation of Jason Soliday “Infinite Radius” in their Weekly Gallery Crawl calendar for September 2014.
For the Infinite Radius installation, Soliday’s original thirteen Radial Variations recordings have been added to The Infinite Jukebox, an online tool which divides each track into beats and then analyzes each beat according to pitch, timbre, loudness, duration, and position. During playback as each beat is played, there is a chance that The Infinite Jukebox will jump to a different beat that sounds similar to the one played, continuing this cycle infinitely for as long as the Jukebox is allowed to play. Through this process of remixing with The Infinite Jukebox, yet another set of Radial Variations have been generated. Within the installation of Infinite Radius, multiple Infinite Radius mixes will be played back simultaneously through several stereo audio systems arranged in an overlapping pattern in the Propeller space, effectively remixing the Radial Variations pieces both spatially and chronologically.

Mere Pis: Lisbon
Mere Pis: Lisbon is an exploratory atmospherics project that was made in Lisbon, Portugal using custom-built sensors and software. The sensors recorded micro-local environmental elements such as ambient light, humidity, light frequencies, and temperature. Meza treated these sounds as residues, glitches, and afterimages - fragments of a city beyond the city. The project was presented as a live performance at the Sinel de Cordes Palace in Lisbon on September 19 and 21, 2013.
Radius Episode 55 hosts Abinadi Meza. Abinadi Meza is an American sound artist and filmmaker living in Rome, Italy. He makes installations, live performances, and radio transmissions; he is interested in noise, architecture, cities, and ghosts.
Meza’s work has been presented at Silent Barn, Brooklyn; Hipersonica Festival, São Paulo; Radio Kinesonus, Tokyo; Deep Wireless Festival, Toronto, Sveriges Radio, Stockholm; Resonance FM, London; and Sonorities Festival, Belfast, among other places.
