FEBRUARY 2017 RADIO, SOUND AND POLITICS with SOPHIE MALLETT

Radio, sound and politics
 

Artist Sophie Mallett spent a day with us exploring radio, sound and politics. We looked at how radio works, how it is monetised and governed. To focus our ears, we went and found a space in the university to sit with paper and pen and to draw the sounds we hear. Everybody interpreted this activity in totally different ways! Using audio recorders and i-phones we used the university as a studio to go and source sounds to combine together and then broadcast, using microtransmitters and portable radios to make our own radio art.
