In July we had the pleasure of joining the MA Sound Arts students at London College of Communication and their sound arts MA visitors from Braunschweig, to lead a Shortwave Collective listening session in Elephant and Castle as part of the CRiSAP Points of Listening series.
After a remote introduction to the Collective and our Open-Wave Receivers by Alyssa from the South of France - which included a live radio listening session based inside a car, antenna attached to the neighbours fence - we all moved outside to the nearby park to listen to transmission locally.
Georgia and Lisa set up two Open-Wave Receivers and together with the MA students, Salomé Voegelin and Irene Revell, we explored the listening possibilities within the park - attaching antennas to fences and lampposts, switching in new metal objects for diodes, grounding through the playpark and throwing antennas in the air.
The recordings will be featured in our upcoming Radio Art Zone broadcast "Constellations of Listening" on Friday 12th August between 9-10pm - at the hour it was in Central European time when these were recorded. Listen online here.
