Radiophrenia Festival 2020

Radio Carrion

by Double Goocher Shop (Renato Grieco and MP Hopkins)


Radiophrenia is a temporary radio station - a two-week exploration of current developments in radio art and sound art. Broadcasting live 24 hours a day from the Center for Contemporary Arts in Glasgow, Radiophrenia's purpose is to promote radio as an art form and to encourage new, challenging and radical approaches to radio.

The first time Radiophrenia went on air was in April 2015, followed by other editions in 2016, 2017 and 2019. In 2020, Radiophrenia took place from 09 to 22 November.

The early 1940’s. Several unconnected people from various locations disappear. They somehow became stuck in a radio field. Since then, the inhabitants of this interference space have had to readjust their social behaviours, re-evaluate their ethics, find a way to live despite disembodiment. Cultural practices have mutated within the magnetic field, including those of burial and remembrance for the dead. During short wave radio explorations, Double Goocher Shop unintentionally captured EVP interactions with these inhabitants. The stereophonic artefact produced by the duo for Radiophrenia explores an anthropological hoax via the metaphysical features of spherics, veering voltages, static electromagnetism, and ghost voice hunting.
