Independent curatorial project for a series of audio web based and radio broadcasts
Reacting to a radio culture which accustoms us to the division of time into a grid of discontinuous slices, Simulcast proposes a renewal of radio’s relationship with eternity. Four artists are asked to provide an unchanging sound or soundscape. Each artist’s work is broadcast continuously over seven consecutive nights.
By bathing listeners in an event which remains unitary for a period of many hours, Simulcast suggests a simultaneity between all moments of a broadcast: a collapsing of long periods of time into a single instant.
