After a radio broadcast malfunction, a man is left alone in the studio to break the bad news: “there’s nothing on this side and I am not saying anything”. Nothing on This Side is a radio piece/sound collage created for WFMU‘s Optimized! online stream curated by Vicki Bennett exploring the theme of optimism.
All the shows are now archived at wfmu.org/playlists/UP, including live performances by Mr. Let’s Paint (John Kilduff).
This piece was also played at Radiophrenia, a two-week exploration into current trends in sound and transmission arts at Glasgow’s Centre for Contemporary Arts, UK.
