“Radio signals are not, as commonly thought, a recent phenomenon. Nature has spoken through radio signals from the origins of the universe. ”

“In an age of high technology, such as now, we are surrounded by many electronic devices, which manage our day to day operations. They can be useless or useful. We are so accustomed to their presence; they are part of the environment that we see every morning on waking. ”

“Clearly we are connected in real time to everything that happens on our planet. It remains to be seen how much this may help improve our knowledge of ourselves. ”

“Nature gives us a powerful device, the radio signal, to observe what is around us. We must be careful not to forget that most of the advanced knowledge we have today about the universe comes from observations with radio telescopes, and not with the observations in an optical field. ”

“Even our planet is a radio signal source, especially at low frequencies: each of us has heard the radio crackling noises during a storm. Different natural phenomena such as auroras, earthquakes and storms create radio signals and these signals can be studied with a very simple and inexpensive device. ”

“We have lost the direct physical contact with our surroundings. We just have to think about the objects that meant the technology to our grandparents.” Renato Romero

Each form of address to the radio from nature means a knowledge of ourselves. Our relationship with this device is already 90 years old: the radio sound is our grandmother.

“AIR / EAR” is the assembly of a radio transmission in a / a space / cultural hall of a small town in rural Argentina. Over the years in my relationship with the radio, I was penetrating into the ambient sound of space around me constantly, in everyday life and transmission of these devices, like having a pair of headphones built all the time. This combination made in time I discovered the term radio art and began to investigate.

“AIR / EAR” joins two English terms related to the transmission and listening to together form a Spanish word, meaning fresh, oxygenation and giving to know one thing.

“AIR / EAR is through sound show the different ways in which the radio art grows, so by means of a call over the Internet, you are invited to participate in this event, transforming it into a sample collectively.

“AIR / EAR” arises to make known a new art form, the radio art through sound public places and means of communication.

You are invited to send audio output as follows:

1) Sound file (s) (MP3, WAV, cassette) that produced it yourself or with others. The same may include: a) sounds of a radio in a natural environment in which both soundsmerge: a radio transmission and the sounds of nature, b) soundscapes that will air the day of installation c) musical composition through sounds of nature. Duration between 5 and 15 min … you want your 15 ‘fame?! 🙂

2) Write your thoughts on the play (written on paper, email, and / or hand-written) – If it is written on paper or written by hand, please be good to spend a PDF, or mail it to me address (included below).

• The themes of the sounds and noise in other (aesthetic, emotional, religious, psychological, philosophical, sociological, historical, political, etc).

• The filtered sounds through the compositions.


• Sounds submitted will be played from a computer, is an audio (audiogallery), so that people will have access only acoustic, do not be discouraged by the low frequency: all will be part of the sample, the receivers will be the curators themselves.

• If your recording is a cassette recorder, do know. They can be digitized.

• If you can only record on cassette tapes let me know. If submitted in time, I can record to a digital format.
