Web-based radio and performance radio: new contexts for radio art

Andrea CohenA paper about this project has been published in the proceedings of the Electroacoustic Music Studies conference 2008, and is available here:



The main purpose of my work is to establish links between musical creation and radio art. This research focuses on three aspects:

  1. The development of new forms on the web-based radios
  2. The radio performances
  3. Radio art in education

I will examine the impact of web radios by focusing on the study and the production of new forms of the radio art, conceived to be broadcast on the Internet.

As regards of the radio performance, I will create radio pieces on stage by using the following techniques: combining are and remixing the sounds in real time; using the spoken voice live or recorded; mixing environmental recorded sounds with live instruments transformed in real time; adding images, lights and theatrical actions.

Last year, this project had the first phase through the development of these activities:
