Podcast What is this icon?

Frequency Post is comprised of six generative sound works,‭ ‬each an investigation of‭ ‬radio frequency allocation as defined by the broadcasting legislations,‭ ‬technologies and economic pressures brought to bear on each of countries and/or regions individually commissioned sound artist/composers choose to draw inspiration from.‭

Frequency Post is a curated series of broadcasts,‭ ‬each‭ ‬35‭ ‬minutes in length,‭ ‬with the first piece to be performed live-to-air in Vienna by Andrew Garton,‭ ‬the projects curator,‭ ‬on the‭ ‬23rd of October‭ ‬2005.

The notion that the spectrum is much like‭ “‬the nervous system in a living organism‭” ‬is at the heart of the generative processes each of the artists are to employ in the design and construction of their works.‭ ‬Commissioned artists include the well respected,‭ ‬long-time composer,‭ ‬Warren Burt,‭ ‬the infamous and inspiration for much of Australia's electronica genres,‭ ‬Ollie Olsen,‭ ‬award winning sound artist and performer,‭ ‬Steve Law,‭ ‬emergent sound and recording artists,‭ ‬Lie,‭ ‬Pei-Wen from Taiwan and Jin Shan,‭ ‬mainland China.‭

Commissioned by KunstRadio‭ (‬Vienna,‭ ‬Austria‭) ‬for‭ ‬Curated by,‭ ‬an on air and online exhibition of international radio-art.

Produced in association with Toy Satellite and OPENChannel Melbourne.
