About

radio continental drift


a broad casting house in the bag of a listener
out to here unheard voices
a branch of the growing networks of sound workers,
audio artists, radio communities, and the street corner academies
of listening and broadcasting
around the world
radio is happening
when people loiter in public places
the air is free!

radio continental drift is a mobile radio drama project focusing on spoken word, “dramatic field-recordings”, narratives usually produced before/ during/ after skills-training workshops or in the context of long-term collective audio media projects such as the NO-GO-ZONES project and the DURBAN SINGS audio media & oral history project.

The work of radio continental drift takes place on the intersection of sound art, radio drama, media activism, acoustic education and literacy, oral history, community radio and digital communities. At each level and platform of its journey of production, a project seeks creative and collective ways to exploit the opportunities of digital media for transporting and transmitting a story together with its toolbox, communication history and infrastructure – be it super-locally in collective media projects, or on-line for a global audience. The resulting compositions, radio dramas, trailers and mixes seek to open each time again a fresh approach to the pleasure of listening; while also inviting a listener into a space where “I can hear myself listening”: an awareness about listening as an imaginative, productive and creative act.
