Radiophrenia announce an open call for sound and transmission artworks for their upcoming broadcasts in November 2020. 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 in-studio performances (Covid permitting).
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 (Covid permitting). Please note that there are no fees available for selected works.
All radio works and programme ideas should be submitted either as completed pieces (for existing works) or as a detailed written proposal (for live shows). Not all submissions or proposed works will be accepted. Priority will be given to works that are created especially for the medium of radio, that demonstrate originality, a spirit of experimentation and that play to the medium’s unique attributes as a means of disseminating ideas.
Examples of the range of work broadcast in previous years can be heard here:
