SK - Incursions into Knob Culture / David
Ellis + Jo Thomas /
An audio-field diary investigation into a lesser known history
of shortwave radio, the anxious childrens songs of Danny Kaye, and
the murky world of 19th century table-rappers
'Silent Key' refers specifically to a radio
operator who has died, and therefore 'ceased to transmit'. Silent
Key consists of an assemblage of interviews, found sounds, spheric
utterances and composed electro-accoustic music. David will be
accompanied by Jo Thomas, who has composed music specifically
for the event.

rand()% / Tom Betts + Joe Gilmore /
Most web-radio stations broadcast archive programmes or relay
live djs and audio performances in the manner of traditional radio.
rand()% counters this predictable formula by presenting a radio
station that is entirely automated, where every programme transmitted
is composed in realtime by computer. All audio is generated on
demand by a unique series of artist/musician developed programs.
