Interferences (2013)

Interferences is a series of four broadcasts that took place on each Friday in July 2013 as part of experimental radio station Radius’ Episode 41. Each broadcast features a geographic site in the Chicago area where some type of built interference to the landscape has or currently is taking place. The content of each broadcast consists of text, maps, photographs and drawings relating to the site. This content was encoded as sound using amateur radio digital modes. Each broadcast was made on frequencies occupied by licensed commercial stations in Chicago with the intent to interfere with them. Each interference creates a temporary zone within licensed Hertzian space where the site can assert / advertise elements of its past, present and future with the same voice as the mass media broadcasts that envelop it.
