Radio Local

Sunday 14 March 2010, 1 – 5pm

A local radio broadcast will be transmitted which can then be transmitted in other locations but must always remain local. Artists Georgia Boniface and Edward Cotterill will conduct a protracted conversation with the aid of a selection of their respective record collections. The gallery will be transformed into a working studio where a one-off broadcast will take place. The broadcast will be for the local population of all visitors to the gallery space. The broadcast will be transmitted via the vibration of sound waves stimulated by the vocal chords of each artist and music will be transmitted from a domestic record player via a pair of speakers. Like other radio broadcasts, invited guests & listeners will be invited to participate in the transmission. In accordance with broadcast laws the transmission will be recorded.
