* SNEAKER RADIO – Lecture by Adam Hyde ( New Zealand ): “on changing notion of “radio” – since radio has started to exploit internet protocols instead of spectrum...”

Since internet radio broke radio away from the spectrum every facet of radio has changed. The change in distribution mediums, from the spectrum to Internet Protocols, has redefined audiences, production techniques, authorship, and distribution strategies. What radio is, is now up for redefinition. Adam Hyde will investigate what it is now we might refer to by 'radio' and what the near future might bring to further develop this new idea of radio.

Adam Hyde (r a d i o q u a l i a / New Zealand ) is an artist with an international practice who works with software, online audio and video, sound art, new technologies and more traditional forms of broadcast.

* DISCUSSIONS on “radio: net/fm” with participation of Latvian independent radio activists, media theorists, alternative radio/tv programme producers, radioamateurs, and remote contributors from re-boot.fm / Berlin, Tetsuo Kogawa / Tokyo, Radio Territory project and others.
