Armed with soft- and hard-wares of their own invention, electronic composers Joshua Fried (aka Radio Wonderland) and Luke Dubois recycle the detritus of our mass-market culture into wild expressions of new media music.
Armed with an 1980s-era boom box and an array of bizarro MIDI controllers (fashioned out of a steering wheel and old shoes), the antenna of Radio Wonderland receives messages from FM radio, transforms them in real time and rebroadcasts into rhythm-heavy improvisations. Feet have been known
Luke DuBois uses original software to deconstruct the greatest hits of modern culture—Oscar-winning films and Billboard Number One hits—into mind bending a/v abstractions.
Nick Hallett and Zach Layton fill in the blanks with music fit for academic curricula by Terry Riley, Boris Blacher, Luciano Berio, Laurie Anderson, Meredith Monk, Olivier Messiaen, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Yoko Ono, and Arthur Russell.
