FROM THIS WEEK'S TIME OUT:
Tune In: Sixth Anniversary Benefit for Free103point9
New York Center for Media Arts; Sat 1
Except for air, there may not be a single more ubiquitous
Substance tangible or otherwise-on earth than radio waves.
They're up high, down low, in your car and shower, and on
every lonely stretch of interstate. For six years, Williamsburg
independent radio station Free1O3point9operated by Tom Roe,
Matt Mikas, Galen Joseph-Hunter and a crew of volunteers-has
been realizing radio's potential on a local scale. Apart from
broadcasts ranging from music to community affairs, the Free103
umbrella also includes a performance space (which routinely
hosts clubworthy experimental artists in a DIY environment); a
label and recording studio; and information on events and
media activism at its website (www.free103point9.org). This
sixth-anniversary show outclasses Free103's previous efforts,
at least in vision. More than 60 artists, including experimental
jazz, folk and electronic musicians such as Matt Valentine,
Cooper Moore and I-Sound, will be in action during the course
of the evening-but the large room will be mostly silent. Instead
of blasting out of a P.A., the music will be spread over six radio
frequencies, beamed with enough power to fill the space but not
enough to tweak car radios driving past. Your admission gets
you a radio and headphones-though you're encouraged to save
five bucks by bringing your own and a program schedule. In case
you're still confused, an instructional loop will be broadcast on
AM 1610, just like traffic warnings on the Jersey Turnpike. In
keeping with Free103's approach to radio as an art form, not just
a medium, several of the performers will be incorporating
transmission themes into their pieces. More promising is a
repeating selection of visual artworks, culled from the archives
of Electronic Arts Intermix, which deals with the notion of
transmission, including two pieces by Nam June Paik and Jud
Yalkut from the '60s. As daunting as the proceedings may seem,
all you have to do is come; the popular mechanics at
Free103point9 have done all the work for you.-Mike Wolf
FROM THIS WEEK'S VILLAGE VOICE:
'TUNE(lN))): A SIXTH ANNIVERSARYBENEFIT FOR

of sound. For your eyes, videos curated by Galen Joseph-Hunter ~
of Electronic Arts Intermix. ~ including works by Nam June Paik,
Kristin Lucas, and Gary Hill. Bring your own radio and headphones
or pay $5 more and rent one ~ there. NY Center for Media Arts,
