For 24 hours on 17th September, 2022

Radiophrenia returns for a special one-day broadcast to present new work and other activities that were delayed due to the Covid pandemic. The schedule includes two new commissions, pieces created by local community groups and a chance to hear all of this year’s commissioned works again.

RADIOPHRENIA is a temporary art radio station broadcasting intermittently from the Centre for Contemporary Arts in Glasgow – a two-week long festival exploring current trends in sound and transmission arts.

Radiophrenia first began broadcasting in April 2015 with subsequent editions in 2016, 2017, 2019 and 2020. The websites from our previous festivals have been archived below.

The station is managed by Mark Vernon and Barry Burns and is funded through Creative Scotland’s Open Project Funding with additional support from CCA Glasgow and the Goethe-Institut.
“Radiophrenia is an accumulation, rather than an overarching theme or idea, brought together through a common medium: live events, produced commissions, live studio performances, compilations of short works, long form works, documentaries, field recordings, experimental music, sound art, drama, poetry and (perhaps mostly) lots of material that lies in between or beyond. At times recordings blend together, at others they are punctuated by an announcer’s voice. Ongoing and literally refreshing, becoming anew with each work, each space of reception.”
