Not long ago, I discussed radio as a means to portray modern experience. Modernity is known for its abrupt changes in atmosphere and tone-- one minute, you might find yourself completely relaxed, enjoying life, and the next, you might be in a panic. Our rate of communication is one cause for the nature of things, and our rate of transportation another. There are other causes.
An idea I had was that, by creating a radio stream that changes quite a bit with every track, I would more accurately portray our lives, than if tracks in the stream blended in with one another.
With radio, we can easily play with medium and message.
Thanks to this simple yet important innovation, the “Thomas Park Audio Explorer” now resembles much more closely the kind of “radio as art” notion I had-- but, don’t just accept what I am saying-- tune in yourself!:
