The Radia Network emerged from a series of meetings, clandestine events, late night club discussions and a lot of email exchanges between cultural radio producers across Europe.
Radia has become a concrete manifestation of the desire to use radio as an art form.
Taking radio as an art form, claiming that space for creative production in the mediascape and cracking apart the notion of radio is what Radia does.
It is producing radio stuff that is hard to describe. Some of it can be labeled radio art, or experimental radio, or creative radio. Sometimes it talks, sometimes it doesn’t. It can be noisy, or a kind of soundscape, or a documentary, a document, a talk, a performance.
Each and every week, one of the partners will provide the network program, commissioned and produced especially for this purpose : being broadcast by all the partners and made available online.
Some things have to be said about all those partners. They are radio stations, of the independent, non-commercial, community, cultural species.
They all speak different languages, and this creates interesting problems.
Although initially they were all European radio stations this has changed over time and Radia has become not only larger but also more diverse: 20 partners in 13 countries and growing all the time.
A selection of Soundart Radio's productions for the radia network can be heard below.
