Listening’s Urgency on Radia.fm
For the second performance in the course of his project “Listening’s Urgency”, Hardi Kurda asked musicians, artists and writers from different parts of the world to comment on the meaning of illegality and noise: Do we overstep the borders of legality by listening? What does illegality mean? Can illegality make noise? Is noise illegal?
The recorded voices and narrations were the basis for a one hour live radio performance with a six-member radio ensemble which came together on Radio Corax on April 26, 2020. For the radio art network Radia.fm Kurda made an edited version of the live radio performance which will be aired this week in twenty stations throughout Europe and beyond:
