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.
