Music For Two Radios
on January 11,2017 by jared

We're extremely pleased that we will be taking part in the 2017 New Music Festival on February 2nd, as we co-present Music for Two Radios, a new 15 minute new music composition by Montreal's Ben Shemie. This performance is in collaboration with with our friends downtown at the U of W, CKUW! 

This composition is written as a duo for two radio stations. The two respective parts of the composition will be broadcast on 95.9 FM & 101.5 FM simultaneously on February 2nd, at 10:30pm sharp. Audiences are invited to tune into each radio station with two FM radios AT THE SAME TIME and listen to this composition.

This piece is free, analague, and available to anyone in the greater Winnipeg area with two FM radios. In collaboration with the Winnipeg New Music Festival and the Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art an installation/performance of the piece will be open to the public to experience at the downtown gallery. Multiple FM radios with be set up around the gallery spaces to create a live experience of this composition.

You are invited to bring your old FM radios to the gallery and add to the many FM radios that will be set up.

This happening subverts the ubiquitous medium of radio in a simple and transparent way, and is a uniquely Winnipeg experience available live only to people in the Winnipeg area.

This piece of music was made possible by the support of Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec

Cheers, and thanks again for your support!

With the holiday season now in full swing, the staff and volunteers at UMFM would like to take this opportunity to wish you and yours nothing but the best tidings of the season! 

Once again, we need to thank you for your support during 2016 which was historical year for UMFM that saw us execute our most successful Pledge-O-Rama yet, recording and posting some of our most amazing live sessions to date, and of course continuing to produce countless hours of quality radio programming, along the way introducing some great new programs to our grid for your listening enjoyment. 

Starting on December 22nd at 6PM, we'll be moving into holiday programming mode, resuming normal programming once again starting January 3rd.  During this time, some of your favorite shows will be doing special extended episodes, some will pre-record and some will take some well deserved time off.  Our offices will also be closed for those 2 weeks, but should you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us via the normal channels

Until then, enjoy some quality time with your family and friends and most importantly, be safe and kind to one another -- we can't wait to see you all in 2017!  We've got some exciting new initiatives developing that we can't wait to share with our, our loyal friends and listeners!
