Variations on Distances

23:30 - 00:20

listen (mp3)

Sounds of radar signals of major harbors worldwide ... historical recordings of maritime radio, ranging from the Titanic's sinking to the cease of the fleet of Eastern Germany, from Marconi to the radio communication of an airport tower. A history of overcoming distances in time and space, told by means of transmission technology. Via streams, historical recordings from radio's beginning intermingle with the possibilities radio art currently offers - and are projected into a new virtual space, the future space of radio in 5.1 technology.
