Live to Air

Playing live on the radio is a revelation.

Hidden physically from your audience, you know those listening intently will enjoy the radiophonic overtones, the democratic undertones (after all it's free) and you can concentrate fully for once on what you are hearing.

Tonight from 8-9pm we perform live from the kitchen of a residential flat, that, though still home to three people, is a public art gallery for the week.

Whitewashed windows and surround sound are just some of the features of Show Flat's opening tonight. Expect harmonically-related vegetable strainers, amplified partition walls and fully processed domesticity.

On Sunday 23rd Nov, we turn Resonancefm studios into a concert hall of types in a unique live-to-air radio concert led by the Resonance Radio Orchestra with special guests Otomo Yoshihide, DJ Sniff and Tam Dean Burn.

The centrepiece of the night’s broadcast is a new radiophonic adaptation of RL Stevenson’s Dr. Jekyll & Mr.Hyde. Tam Dean Burn plays Jekyll, Cliff McClune is Hyde, Sam Collings is Utterson and Erik Fuller is Lanyon. The work has been adapted by Ed Baxter and features a critical exegesis by Stevenson expert Robert Mighall. RRO musicians include Chris Weaver, Aleks Kolkowski, Ivor Kallin, James Dunn, Fari Bradley, Xentos “Fray” Bentos and Ted Barrow.

104.4fm in London

Oscillatorial Binnage broadcast live from the electro-mechanically altered Hackney flat, as part of the “Show Flat” series of open studio performances.
