Radio-making is always collective.
It involves doing, undoing, redoing, trial and error.
Experimentation and failure are integral to the process.
Radio is everywhere, and we can listen to it broadly all at once, not just frequency by frequency.
We can make radios that receive plural signals and resist the clear channel.
Radio is nowhere, until it can be heard.
We can make radios that resist, and radios that do not receive or transmit signal, yet are not broken.
Radio is everywhere, it isn’t asking to be heard.
Radio waves are timeless, organic, physical. Radio waves travel through our bodies, they fill the universe.
The signals and messages that we perceive within radio are dependent on our position, the weather, a state of material being, and a state of mind.
Our hands can be the antennas to the intangible electromagnetic waves.
Radio is relation.
