Clear Spot at 8pm – Dreamland: Radio Arts Commissions of Gregory Whitehead, Joaquin Cofreces, Magz Hall

July 23rd, 2014 · No Comments

Tonight’s Clear Spot at 8pm showcases Radio Arts Commissions: three brand new works for radio commissioned by Radio Arts, following the theme of radio as a ‘Dreamland’. Artists Gregory Whitehead (USA), Joaquin Cofreces (Argentina) and Magz Hall (UK) each respond to the theme, addressing the transitory status of radio within the post-digital era, at the threshold of its supposed obsolescence, to reveal anew its latent potentiality.
Gregory Whitehead’s Crazy Horse One-Eight (a radio cantata in memory of those killed) is a provocative and chilling new work explicitly addressing the use of language and the weaponization of radiophonic space in the perpetration of US war crimes, as evidenced in Bradley (Chelsea) Manning’s leaked ‘collateral murder’ video.
Joaquim Cofreces’ Dreamland is a captivating radiophonic work which explores the fragile line between the real and the illusion, representing acoustically the elusive Edgar Allen Poe poem, through a shifting soundscape, narrated by the voices of women reading the work across the globe.
Magz Hall’s Radio Recall is a meditiation on radio technology, memory and obsolescence within a post-digital era. Interviews were conducted by Hall and a group of volunteers in the Kentish seaside town of Broadstairs in the Summer of 2013, and are interwoven with a musical composition by Jim Backhouse, sourced from home-made transmitters blasting electronic sounds through an ever expanding collection of radio receivers from the 1940s to the present.
Commissions funded by Arts Council England and Kent County Council. [Repeated Thursday 9am.]
