Abstract

Contemporaneity is the thematic point of departure; our living contemporaneity is consciously invoked by the radio. The radio follows the day like a clock, where hourly news updates provide us with a shared routine that synchronizes the rhythm of everyday life [1]. Tuning between stations, this contemporaneity changes with the world’s time zones, and each hour has a distinct character. At any time, one can, from one’s local space somewhere on the globe, tune into the daily rhythms of different time zones and visit all places at all times. Today, we assume that the world lives in one global time in a universal existence. But—economically as well as ecologically, we are simultaneously connected to people who find themselves in completely different daily realities and environments. The installation invites the audience to move between the radios in the exhibition space, with the sound changing as one moves. The track on this CD presents a stereo remix intended headphone listening. It is thus a specific work for close-range listening—the experience of being inside the installation is replaced with a pure auditory experience. Reference Fig. 4.
