31 Down radio theater: "An eye doctor and his assistant become lab rats in their search for xray vision through experimental eye drops."

Japanther: "It's not like they haven't the feigned art-world legitimacy of the "experimental" tag—they once composed a live puppet opera that later ended up as the basis of a video piece in last year's Whitney Biennial—but they also have a sense of humor. As in: their fist-pumping singalong, "River Phoenix." As in: they once bashed out this Young Indy ode while synchronized swimmers calling themselves Aquadoom splash-kicked in time with the beat." -- The Village Voice.

Radio Poetics
Friday, October 17, 8 p.m., $7-10 sliding scale.

Curated by Danny Snelson.

With Alexis Bhagat: free103point9 Transmission Artist.

and others.

Radio Talks
Saturday, October 18, 2 p.m., free admission.

Judy Dunaway will present Sex Workers’ Internet Radio Lounge (S.W.I.R.L.). Connected to the idea of “O-ton,” radio artists in 1970’s Germany who recorded and edited the voices of workers and prisoners to be aired on state radio programs, sound artist Judy Dunaway founded “Sex Workers’ Internet Radio Lounge” (S.W.I.R.L.) a not-for-profit 24/7 webstream of audio art and activism by sex workers. The stream was broadcast from January 2007 to May 2008. It featured stories, poetry, interviews, speeches, panel discussions, original music, and other audio art created by current and former sex workers. In August 2008 SWIRL was converted to an audio archive, which may be accessed at: http://www.jeweltone16.org/swirl/

Artist Laura Vitale will present works that illustrate her exploration so far of literary, painterly, and musical themes in radio. She will also play works from which she has drawn inspiration.

Radio Noise
Saturday, October 18, 8 p.m., $7-10 sliding scale.

Neg-Fi: Minimalist metalloid duets played with severely detuned guitars and walkie talkies.

Noveller: Utilizing the pick-ups on her double-necked guitar, Noveller will explore the interaction between the stringed instrument and several electronic devices, including a hand-held radio, a tape player, and ebows.

Tom Roe: Performs with walkie-talkies, scanners, FM radios, and other receivers and transmitters, to craft noisescapes that sample pop culture.

Twisty Cat: Ed Bear + Lea Bertucci + Tianna Kennedy
