Vox Novus and Wave Farm are delighted to collaborate on a special edition of 60x60 focused on Radio Art. Artists are invited to submit recorded works (created with, for, about radio and transmission) with durations of 60 seconds, to be included in the eleventh annual 60x60 project; a FM broadcast on Wave Farm’s WGXC 90.7-FM; and distributed as a Wave Farm Dispatch Series download. 60 compositions will be selected to be played continuously in a one-hour live event and broadcast.
60x60 is a project of "signature works" and short works created specifically for the 60x60 project. Excerpts of larger works are strongly discouraged. Works generated from procedures (i.e. mathematical matrices, organizational systems, or computer programs,) remixed works, or themes and motives recomposed from other of the composer's own work are acceptable. On the occasion of this special collaboration with Wave Farm, 60x60 is specifically seeking radio art composition submissions.

noise&light present "Sum Twenties." "Sum Twenties" is an aural film noir in three acts that uses pure sound design as its primary element.
Act I: Velocity Per Second of a 5 inch Pipe
Act II: I Never Had It So Good
Act III: Time Starts Now
The third act, Time Starts Now, completes the mystery, but the events and outcomes of the story are determined by how the listener interprets the sounds.

This fall and winter yek koo, the solo project of visual and performing artist Helga Fassonaki (half of free psych duo Metal Rouge), has been performing live to air on radio stations only, including an appearance on Wave Farm's WGXC 90.7-FM on Saturday October 25th. The purpose of her radio only tour is to investigate a sound concept without exposure to the 'missing element' - the perceived contact between audience and performer. Her current live incarnation explores the relationship between body, microphone and air movement. It features vocal feedback, horn exclamations and sparse rhythms moving with and against each other in space – a visual performance for a listening audience.
