An overview of radio art, its concepts, theories and practices

Colin Black

Thursday, 29th April, from 10am-12pm

Presentation Room (UTS Bldg. 3, Lvl. 5, Rm. 510)

Paper: 20mins.

This paper presents an overview of radio art, its concepts, theories and practices. It is the combined result of the author’s current qualitative research into the subject (via semi-structured interviews), literature review and current professional practice to date. The paper explores the origins of radio art, the ‘liveness’ of its performance practice concepts, spatialisation and other related radio art concepts.

Internationally acclaimed composer/sound artist Colin Black won the prestigious Prix Italia Award (2003) in the category Best ‘Music Radio – Composed Work’ for composing and producing his major work The Ears Outside My Listening Room.  BBC Radio 3 described this work as “a haunting evocation of Australia”, while the Prix Italia Award’s International Jury Report states that it, “… lived up to the claim ‚”that here was a patchwork sonic quilt that can be passed down the generations.”
