We are currently developing the Radio of Songs In People’s Head, a channel dedicated to broadcasting – and thus liberating – music trapped in the minds of a chosen location. The radio comes to life through a capsule fixed onto various existing urban structures. Passers-by are invited to slip their heads inside and sing their hearts out. Through a simple recording system, they instantly contribute to a collective radio of a cappella songs, broadcasted live online – gradually shaping the community’s secret musical landscape.

 

The exhibition presents the project development and different ‘scenarios for open’ it implies.

 

This project is part of the OPEN Signs exhibition at the Marshall McLuhan Salon of the Embassy of Canada, curated by Heather Kelley.
