Sometimes the online world reveals unsuspected parallel dimensions. This is an unknown restyle of Neural independently (and secretly as we never knew about it) made by NY-based Motion and Graphic Designer, Clarke Blackham. Very nicely made, perhaps only a bit glossier for the magazine’s line, it testifies once more how even your most familiar outcomes can have another life somewhere else.
Sound waves broadcast in space and captured by powerful antennas. A steamy repetition creating an environment open to different contributions, pervaded by the energies of the artists themselves, who were invited to focus their attention on those deceitful mechanisms that are always in play at the interchange between infosphere and psychosphere. Different types of data, sounds and magnetism: all these elements poetically meet in multimedia, which is here the synesthetic melting pot of experimental sound compositions. This collective, which promotes the Radio Tower Xchange project, by connecting online performances and audio art events, wants to pay homage and at the same time criticize the “broadcasting philosophies”, embodied in the “symbolism” of radio towers themselves. Technologies for sharing that are evolving towards direct transmission, not “for the audience” but “from the audience” which, thanks to WiFi networks and the multiplication of “emission points” and the simultaneous demand for those inputs, pave the way to the emergence of new systemic chains.
