BROADCASTS ACROSS GLASGOW ON 87.9FM

24 HOURS A DAY: 7th – 20th February, 2022

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.

The broadcast schedule will include a series of 19 newly commissioned radio works, 13 Live-to-Air performances as well as live studio shows, shorts and pre-recorded features. As in previous years the majority of the programme will be made up from selections submitted to an international open call for sound art and radio works.

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 The websites from our previous festivals have been archived below.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.”
