Radiophrenia are back with an open call for sound and radio works

Annual Glaswegian FM and online broadcast Radiophrenia makes an open call for radio works, with its deadline coming up on 24 September

Month long Glasgow-based online and FM station Radiophrenia has made an open call for new sound and transmission artworks to be broadcast in November. The station will take up home at Glasgow’s Centre for Contemporary Arts with its broadcast schedule including live shows, pre-recorded features and a series of live-to-air performances.

“We are seeking soundscapes, spoken word pieces, radio experiments, found sound, innovative approaches to drama and documentary, and radical and challenging new programme ideas,” says the call. “We want to hear from radio makers who are seeking a platform for their work to reach new audiences. The call is open to artists, musicians and producers at any career stage. It is intended primarily for existing works. Local artists may also propose live shows or performances that will take place in the studio.”

There are four categories for submissions: pre-recorded radio programmes
including documentaries, radio plays, soundscapes and crafted features; shorter radio or sound works; experimental, long-form radio pieces; and live shows. Works have to be self-funded.

More information can be found on their website. Deadline is 24 September 2017. And you can listen to a selection of last year's shows below:
