Nouvel Building, Centro de Estudios, Auditorio 200 y Auditorio 400

Once again the Conference on Computer and Electronic Music offers a series of workshops on sound production and post-production, concerts dedicated to the aural perception of space and to live improvisation and sound projection, as well as a series of reflections, in a conversation and round table, about the artistic possibilities of radio and a fresh look at the Museum Collection from a new perspective, the auditory sphere.

The proposal made by the artist José Iges for this workshop is an analysis of radio as artistic discourse and format, examining some historical works and the potential that this medium offers. Its transformations on Internet will also be examined, from radio-web to podcast to radioartnet. The students must propose, for discussion in groups, ideas for radiophonic projects about aural and sound aspects of the Museum Collection, with a duration of between 2 and 5 minutes.

Conversation – round table: Radio-web, between production space and exhibition space
Participants: Miguel Álvarez-Fernández, José Luis Espejo, Eduardo Polonio and Anna Ramos. Moderated by: José Iges.
Times: from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Place: Nouvel Building, Auditorium 200

The program Ars Sonora is turning 25 years old and MACBA's radiophonic program is now five, while Museo Reina Sofía has just inaugurated RRS, its new radio-web with four channels. This round table analyses the institutional initiatives that allow radio and its formats to find their place on the web in a new space devoted to both discursive and artistic production. The limitations, potential and transformations of this medium are analysed.
