Radio Yaks: A Soundproof series in which eminent producers and sonic luminaries from around the world share audio they’re crazy about, and tell us why.
Magz Hall is a sound and radio artist, teacher, and co-founder of Radio Arts. Her work explores the artistic potential of radio and it’s use beyond conventional settings. Taking as her point of departure a hypothetical future characterised by vacant airwaves, Magz Hall’s work re-imagines radio’s utopian potential.
For Radio Yak, she chooses five pieces that variously explore psychic life and reflect on conscious and unconscious human experience.
Magz Hall‘s sound work has been exhibited at Tate Britain, the British Museum and the Sainsbury Centre. She is a senior radio lecturer at Canterbury Christ Church University. She co-runs Radio Arts, an artist led group who promote radio art and the Expanded Radio Research Group. She was awarded a practice-based PhD from Creative Research in Sound Arts Practice (CRISAP) University of the Arts London entitled: Radio After Radio: Redefining Radio Art in the Light of New Media Technology through Expanded Practice.
