Over the past few months, Radiophrenia 87.9FM has been collaborating with several community groups at Platform. Participants have been learning about experimental radio and sound art, using professional recording equipment to produce their own brand new pieces for radio. These will be unveiled - and simultaneously shared with the world - via a special live broadcast from Platform, on Saturday 18th May from 3pm.

The broadcast will also include live experimentation with the physical sounds of Platform’s building.

In addition Radiophrenia will present 3 live-to-air performances:

The X-Static Tics from Rotterdam with Eothen Stearn perform a live radio play set in the year 2222 when there are no more wars, pollution has been banned and all art forms except music have been wiped out.

Visual artist Katie Shannon (So Low, Kübler-Ross) presents ‘But I can’t quite remember feeling real’ - an audio work on connections between time, abandon, bathing, kinship and music cultures.

Alicia Matthews debuts a new sound piece. Her confrontational works have been performed to audiences around the UK and internationally Under her alter ego Sue Zuki these experimental soundscapes and loose, scathing lyrical narratives were brought to the Tate Modern in 2017.

You can join us at Platform or listen on 87.9FM and online at www.radiophrenia.scot
