PERFORMA Radio: Ryan Gander & Dexter Sinister
Specially commissioned by PERFORMA Radio, this collaborative radio work by British artist Ryan Gander
and New York-based collective Dexter Sinister
merges the script of a TV pilot with the form of a radio play. Interspersed with musical elements, 8 voices read from a script for a TV pilot written by the artists (and recently published as the book "Appendix Appendix"). A selection of Gander
's earlier sound works are also incorporated within the script to become part of the radio play. Continuing the path of one medium wandering into another -- a TV pilot into a radio play -- radio merges with physical space, and the live broadcast is complemented by a performative presentation with a live audience in real space, filled with old radios all tuned to WFMU.

a nonprofit arts organization focused on establishing and cultivating the genre Transmission Arts by promoting artists who explore transmission mediums for creative expression.
Aiming at expanding the field of performance to include radio-space and encouraging artists to use radio as an artistic medium, PERFORMA Radio invites visual artists to present works specifically designed for radio broadcast.
