Imagine Radio 2.0
Micro.fm snatches the radio from tv towers and broadcasting agencies and instead of showering down on the city, the radio waves beam out of the districts and neighborhoods. Micro.fm uses small fm transmitters and wireless access points to broadcast in an area like a house or a neighborhood, it allows everybody with broadband access to run a tiny radio transmitter covering the own block. Everyone who passionately cares about his or her neighborhood adopts the medium and populates the ether. Backyard Radio reintroduces radio into the context of social media and peer to peer networks. A digitized version of the micro radio of the early 80’s, it is a great pleasure to have Tetsuo Kogawa present with the Radia.FM Network. A long weekend of lectures, workshops, concerts and broadcasts take radio art apart and put it back together again.
