A parallel audio program accompanying The Future is Floating Program in Sydney, Currents and Waves Radio is a live streaming program of experimental sound, environmental recordings, artist talks, artist performances, presentations, music and much more.
The question of “how do we occupy space differently” undulates and oscillates throughout currents and waves. Flowing from January 13 to January 26, currents and waves will broadcast 24 hours a day in Sydney, and across the pacific in Vancouver - all via internet streaming. Curated by Other Sights as a way to situate oneself outside the realm of the visual, this rich audio program encourages an awareness and exploration of ‘what cannot be seen’ as central to a richer understanding of public space.
Using the fluid-structure of tidal forecasts currents and waves expands on the themes of Other Sights’ parallel Sydney Festival program the future is floating - a floating exchange between 16 artists from Canada and Australia. The Future is Floating explores radical ways of reconfiguring relationships, language, community, migration, and nationhood. Similarly and concurrently via Currents and Waves, ideas will propagate and drift through a range of topics including language resurgence, crisis, resilience, arrivals and departures, the foreshore, deep listening, and Indigenous activism. Currents and Waves program-formats range from podcasts and radio-dramas to experimental audio-zines, music and live-feed nature reserve broadcasts.
Thanks for Tuning in!
