    Radio Art - Orquestra del Caos

    Radio Art is an interactive exhibition of radio art and sounds from the electromagnetic spectrum.

    It contains the following collections:

    1. Radio Astronomy: a selection of works presented at the Acoustic Space Lab symposium, which took place in August 2001 in Irbene, in the forests of Western Lapland, at the foot of a 32-meter diameter radio astronomy dish, built and operated during Soviet times.

    2. Radio Art: a selection of electro-acoustic works selected by Ferran Cuadras for radio broadcasting on the FM waveband.

    3. SoundRadioDoc: online documentation on radio art.


  • The Electromagnetic Spectrum

    NOW converts the electromagnetic spectrum into a great metaphor (or semantic matrix) that acts as a condenser of contents and facilitates the communication and reception of the project.
