About radioCona:Zima FM
The five-day broadcast radioCona:ZimaFM resumes and takes to the next level the featured parameters of radioCona activities by stressing the dimension of nocturnal radio transmission. It plays with the idea of heightened perception that can happen only by withdrawing from the daily rhythm of multifunctional hyperactivity. The winter, commonly associated with silence and stillness, outlines the programme’s framework, at once breaking and reflecting on it on different levels.
Curatorial selection of radioCona:ZimaFM touches upon numerous levels metaphorically produced by the concept of winter. In living conditions that are not bound to yearly cycles and subjected to their rhythms tranquility is largely felt only at that time of the day when the day turns into the night. In the past, people told stories to each other by the fire. Now, we are inviting you to join us and get immersed in the world of sound. The sound namely has the power of triggering “the senses that bring back the memory of another time and space”.
radioCona:ZimaFM invites you to listen to nocturnal sounds of a distant landscape that can thus become so close, so visible and tangible.
Curatorial selection radioCona:ZimaFM comprises compositions of home and international authors, produced by Cona. It includes a selection from radioCona transmission ReuseCITY:REuseRADIO 2014, curated by Anna Friz, Brane Zorman, Jasmina Založnik and Irena Pivka, a selection of episodes from the art platform Radius, curated by Jeff Kolar, and a re-transmission of sound works by artists shortlisted for the Listening Room at the Festival Invisible Places, Sounding Cities, Viseu Portugal 2014, curated by Raquel Castro; Listening Room organised by Miguel Carvalhais, Vítor Joaquim & André Rangel.
