Node Radio: Generative Behaviors

generative_behaviors.jpgTune into Node Radio :: October 26, 2009; 10-12am CST for a special show which will air Generative Behaviors in its entirety. Node Radio streams on the ambient radio station StillStream 24/7. StillStream Radio; Node Records.

Generative Behaviors: Generative sound by definition is music that is ever-changing and that is created by a system.

Herbstradio 99.1 FM Berlin [de Berlin]

herbst.jpgHerbstradio 99.1 FM Berlin :: Radio is back. Kill your ipods.

Breaching the airwaves with a new breed of sound: Transmitting from two studios in the former east and west parts of the city, a new radio project marks the crossings of many cultural communities for the next three months. Herbstradio is a continuation of an ongoing international experiment: how to map the complex patterns of urban culture’s productivity and transport it into the ether? While other cities around the world have permanent “free cultural radios”, Berlin has only realized this in temporary forms. Partly, Herbstradio is a tribute to Berlin’s potential to realize a permanent cultural channel like Resonance 104.4 FM, London; WFMU, NY; Grenouille, Marseilles; Tilos Radio Budapest; Orange, Vienna and Corax, Halle or the former Radio100, Berlin.
