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 Montréal’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.
