I curated a selection of works by five artists for the radioCona 0.2425 FM soundart exhibition broadcast and streaming February 28 – March 3, 2016 after nautical twilight 6:16 PM on 88.8MHz FM and live streaming on www.radiocona.si Ljubljana.
This edition of the annual exhibition is dedicated to the Earth’s orbit around the Sun, focusing on the dimension of nighttime radio transmission and the idea of heightened perception that can happen only by withdrawing from daytime rhythms.
In addition, my own “SoundTent At Camp Sherwin” was selected by one of the other curators.

For five days in a row radioCona will start its broadcasts every day at 6:16pm, at the start of nautical twilight, which is defined when the sun is at least 6 degrees below the horizon. This is the time when the horizon is still distinguishable, although there is already a need for illumination. It is the time when the first stars become visible.
The unit 0.2425 denotes the remainder of the Earth’s orbital period along the ecliptic, which is compensated for with an extra day in a leap year. This edition of radiocona:0.2425 aims at reflecting and shifting precisely this ‘unperceived’ remainder, making a leap to move from the unit of time to the notion of space, toward perceiving space, toward perceiving, capturing, and composing sounds and soundscapes, and ultimately toward creating autonomous narratives.
