The legacy of radio and the arts has spawned many forms of radical culture over the years, from early Modernist notions of the Wireless Imagination and its subsequent vernacular tongues to Acoustic Ecologys call for Radical Radio. ThisMoreThe legacy of radio and the arts has spawned many forms of radical culture over the years, from early Modernist notions of the Wireless Imagination and its subsequent vernacular tongues to Acoustic Ecologys call for Radical Radio. This contemporary history of radical radio addresses the transformation of this broadcast medium by recent breakthroughs in digital technology--from digital streaming to web radio and podcasting--paying special attention to the transmission arts in culture and politics. It includes creative and critical essays by historians, media theorists, radio producers and activists, coupled with artistic and audio projects by current avant-gardists Kabir Carter, Brandon LaBelle, James Sey and others. While Modern radio stitched together an electronic network by expanding outward, todays radio may fulfill Marshall McLuhans idea of the global extended nervous system by networking individual lives on more of a cellular level. According to the authors, radio is no longer out there, in the ether, but inside us, transmitting intense stratifications of culture. Comes with audio CD.
