Just like its many forerunners, Kunstradio's LONG NIGHT OF RADIO ART 2002
is a networked collaboration of international artists on site in Linz and
at other locations around the globe. Acting as one of the live nodes
in a bigger
network, the LONG NIGHT will be accessible on FM, Shortwave, AM as
well as on line.
The parameters of the LONG NIGHT OF RADIO ART on Sept 10th/11th are
developed in discussions with a selected group of artists, some of
whom will be present in Linz to give shape to the 6 hour live on
air-on line event.
The material of the event will mainly be gathered
from simultaneous live streams, telephone interventions and
prerecorded projects and contributions from other locations,
particularly in the southern hemisphere and from diasporic
communities in the North.
The basic function of the artists working
in-studio in Linz is to act as selectors-- crafting a radioflow made
of many voices, languages, and sound environments, allowing the
original contributions to speak forthemselves, while providing
interpretation in the contrasts and juxtapositions of the submissions.
In turn, the radioflow of this LONG NIGHT OF RADIO ART offers itself
as material for events and projects at other nodes.
