Radio Compost

RadioCompost (RC) is a project that focuses on the roots of culture through byproducts of composed, chance and found sounds based in different places from around the geographic area of Baltimore, Washington, D.C. and beyond.  RC will draw from the archives of a previous project, art@radio that birthed from the UMBC student-run station in 2000 as a means to tap raw experimental music and noise talent from around the globe. RC focuses on concepts of serialism and ultra-rationality, aleatory and anti-rational, musiqueconcrète, chance music, text-sound composition, microtonal, lowercase, sound/noise, synthetic and ambient phonographic space. Image NOTE.

Radio Compost will augment the radio hour with future submissions by collaborating with invited guests who will identify unique places to explore, record and map sonically.  Sounds from the streets,interviews, planned and chance interventions, will be collected for a monthly Radio Compost podcast.   

Radio Compost is broadcast through WMBC, student-run radio station, UMBC, Baltimore, Maryland – USA.   Radio Compost is accepting new sound works.  Either email Stephen Bradley – sbradley (at) umbc (dot) edu or surface mail work to: UMBC, 1000 Hilltop Circle, FA 111, Department Visual Arts, Baltimore, Maryland  21250
