Radiophrenia announce an open call for sound and transmission artworks for their upcoming broadcasts in November 2017.
Radiophrenia is an artist run FM radio station broadcasting in Glasgow and online.
We are seeking soundscapes, spoken word pieces, radio experiments, found sound, innovative approaches to drama and documentary, and radical and challenging new programme ideas. The station will be housed in Glasgow’s Centre for Contemporary Arts with a broadcast schedule including live shows, pre-recorded features and a series of live-to-air performances.
Radiophrenia aims to promote the medium of radio as an art form and encourage experimental approaches to making radio that are not catered for by mainstream stations. We want to hear from radio makers who are seeking a platform for their work to reach new audiences. The call is open to artists, musicians and producers at any career stage. It is intended primarily for existing works. Local artists may also propose live shows or performances that will take place in the studio. Please note that there are no fees available for selected works.
Examples of the range of work broadcast in previous years can be heard here: https://soundcloud.com/radiophrenia
There are four categories for submissions:
• Pre-recorded radio programmes or series
including documentaries, radio plays, soundscapes and crafted features of 30 / 60 / 90 / 120 minutes duration.
• Shorter radio or sound works
that will be compiled into longer shows.
• Experimental, long-form radio pieces
of over 2 hours duration.
• Live presented shows or studio performances
of 30 / 60 / 90 /120 minutes duration.
Please note that this project is intended to feature material and approaches that are not already catered for by mainstream programming. We are therefore unlikely to consider DJ mixes, music shows or other conventional genres unless there is a clear and distinctive conceptual basis that differentiates them from broadcasting available elsewhere.
For details on how to submit please visit our website at:
Deadline for submissions: Sunday, 24th September, 2017
Broadcasts will take place from 6th – 19th November, 2017.
The deadline is Sunday 24 September 2017 at 12:00.
