89. - Radio Event No. 14: Armenia Gardenia [5.080% Popularity: 0.00000]
Radio Event: No. 14: Armenia Gardenia Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 31 min Event Type: Inter-Media / Visual Arts Program Origin: KPFA Armenia Gardenia” by Charles Amirkhanian, was the 14th program in the groundbreaking Radio Event series, in which audience reactions were incorporated into a live KPFA radio broadcast. This work utilizes short pre-recorded sound events, such as snatches of music or talking, that were then played over the air interspersed with long periods of silence. Amirkhanian then waited for listeners to call into the station to inquire as to the nature of the broadcast in progress. These calls were recorded and then broadcast along with the rest of the sound events, leading to an, at time hilarious, interaction between the shows creators at KPFA and its intended audience. Ingenious and funny, this show is one of the better examples of the sort of genre defying programing that characterized KPFA. Genre: Interactive Art Subject: Participatory art ; Interactive art ; Audience par...
