Radio Fragments is a radiophonic project that aims to explore an
auditory attention, different from the one usually associated with the
experience of listening to the radio, making use of the spaces in
between words and songs that occur throughout the radiophonic discourse
as its main reagent.


Its basic formula consists of an analysis-control mechanism (built in
Super Collider) residing inside a computer to which a real-time
mainstream radio broadcast is fed. This mechanism acts as a
reversed-noise-gate, singling out what is usually ignored or avoided in
a radiophonic context (whispers, stumbles, pauses, dead spaces and
errors) and muting all the other sounds such as words or songs.These
punctuating fragments become the raw materials from which Radio
Fragments sonic concoction is brewed.

Recently a light responsive system, built with Arduino, was added to the
installation. Such system reacts and enhances the moment of emergence of
the fragments by brightening up momentarily and then returning to its
initial dim state.
