24 HOURS A DAY: 21st August – 3rd September, 2023

RADIOPHRENIA is a temporary art radio station broadcasting intermittently from the Centre for Contemporary Arts in Glasgow.

The broadcast schedule includes a series of 16 newly commissioned radio works, 14 Live-to-Air performances as well as live studio shows, screenings, 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, 2020 and 2022. The websites from our previous festivals have been archived below.

The station is managed as a collective by Mark Vernon, Barry BurnsTimothea Armour and Stevie Jones.  Our Public Engagment programme is co-ordinated by Steve Urquhart. Radiophrenia is funded through Creative Scotland’s Open Project Fund 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.”
