Part 1 – Rhythmic Dialogues
The first part of ‘AGM OnAir/Net’ is focusing on the dialogue between spoken words and sounds. We explore this relationship through different approaches, from sound-installation to sound experimentation according to science of orgasm, from angry ‘protesting’ poetry-reading to a collage of quotations from suiciditial song texts.
– Simultaneous: separate and together – Sound piece by Mayer/Barrio
– Wilhelm Reich Remix – sound piece by Michael Schultze
– White Paper – poem reading by John Farris/chello by Christopher Hoffman
– Suicide –sound piece by Mayer/Barrio
– Notes by the artists
– Musical accompaniment composed by Tristan Perich
Part 2 – All Frequencies Unrestricted
The second part of AGM OnAir/Net is dedicated at the medium radio itself. We consider two examples of how the radio is becoming a strategic way of ‘active’ communication, not only because it is economically affordable almost to everyone and therefore in spirit with a democratic discourse, but also because it allows and foster audience participation and reaction, and therefore stimulates to a great extent the possibility to share and form alternative worldviews.

Part 3 – Audiography
Three different approaches to psychogeography, or representation of geographies of places and situations. The term of psychogeography and the concept has been largely used, over-used and re-used in the art world through the past four decades. It is not our intention to make a lecture about it but to consider how a geography, also a personal experience of situations, can be mediated through audio material, with field-recorded sounds and narratives from personal histories, first-hand answers from interviews, and casualty imbedded in our daily life.
