„When it comes to radio and audio we are much closer to the
subliminal text of our society.
Literature and audio open up a new reception onto the
vestiges of the accelerated world.“
On Oct 30th 2008 Christine Ehardt (academic part) and Lale Rodgarkia-Dara (artistic part) organised a new production of war of the worlds based on the novell by H.G.Wells at the Planetarium in Vienna.
Within four weeks more then 20 artists (electroacoustic musicians, actors and visualists) joined the production, including live-streams from Cologne and three radiostations took over the live-stream and included the live-drama in their programme.

Show 199: Domestic Radiation by Anna Friz.
A composition made from the imagined and actual intercepted fields of electro-magnetic and acoustic signals in and around my apartment in Toronto, Canada. This piece seeks to express some of the wireless action surging daily on site. I am particularly interested in the relative flatness and depth perceivable in both acoustic and Hertzian space, and in the diminishing horizon in the city as a result of urban design and an exponential increase in wireless infrastructure (or electro-magnetic clutter). Additional filters include mason jars, theremin, ring modulator, staged interference, and delay. This show is best enjoyed on headphones, for those listening online.
