SICS Research Seminar: Deprogramming Radio Michelle O'Connor

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventPublic lecture/debate/seminar/presentationAcademic


In this presentation I reflect on my participation in the Radio Deprogramming Workshop hosted by Andy Stuhl and the non-profit transmission arts organisation Wavefarm in February 2022. I discuss the concepts of programmed and deprogrammed radio and speculate how the notion of deprogramming radio can be applied to my PhD research to investigate the meaning of local significance on Australian community radio. I apply a listening out lens (Lacey, K., 2011) to the study of radio and seek to explore the ways in which radio might be able to reflect the sounds of a community, and thus listening to sounds as a way of understanding place. I discuss a creative practice research approach to exploring the possibilities for what deprogrammed radio might sound like and introduce examples of audio works in progress.
