CKUT's Magic Sound Box Collective is composed of amateur and veteran sound-makers. Once a year, we transform vacant spaces to create an enclosed area with large swaths of fabric. We turn off the lights...and make radio. The audience is inside the box, the performers are on the outside. Some of the sounds will be mixed through a quadrophonic speaker system and some will use the natural acoustics of the space, inviting our listeners to enjoy the spatial qualities of voices, instruments, field recordings and electronics.
This live radio transmission art show (or tell...) takes the audience inside Radioland - inside the magic sound box - highlighting the many talents of CKUT, exploring the limits of aural imagination and indulging in the intimacy of sound.
You can listen to our experimental radio creations all year round on CKUT 90.3FM (or online: www.ckut.ca/listen) on 'Radio is Dead?', every Monday, 2-3pm.
