Radiophrenia launch open call for sound and radio works

The series goes live on FM and online from Glasgow from 13–26 May

Glasgow's artist led pop up radio station Radiophrenia has published its 2019 open call for sound and other transmission artworks.

“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 station announcement. “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.”

The station will take up residence in Glasgow’s Centre for Contemporary Arts in May, with a broadcasting schedule including live shows, pre-recorded features and a selection of on air performances. Its four categories for submission are documentaries, radio plays, soundscapes and features of 30, 60, 90 or 120 minutes in duration

Deadline for submissions is 17 February. More information is available on Radiophrenia’s website, and you can listen to previous years on Soundcloud. The station will be broadcasting from 13–26 May.
