Gowanus Over and Out, by Maria Papadomanolaki

Gowanus Over and Out follows the aural traces of the narrowcast audio exhibit Sib Radio Gowanus curated last year for the exhibition “Postcards from Gowanus” (Cabinet Magazine Gallery, March 17-20 2010, Gowanus, Brooklyn, New York). The conceptual backbone of the project was to create a sonic wallpaper that would reflect the aural undertones, both real and imagined, of the area surrounding the gallery. It also served as an organic sonotopia that inhabited the audiovisual exhibits in a process of associative interaction. Responding to a call for works, a total of 44 U.S. and international artists from diverse creative backgrounds contributed works ranging from drones and field recordings to spoken word pieces and experimental sonic artworks. Gowanus Over and Out attempts to offer a glimpse into some of the different facets of the exhibit while at the same time being its own self-expanding universe of sounds.


RADIO BRECHT is a production of Escuela Creativa de Radio TEA FM 98.9 Zaragoza and it is based on the work of Bertolt Brecht on radio theory (1927) as a resounding tribute from TEA FM School of Radio (www.teafm.net) to the radio environment.
