Riot Radio Ballad

A series of programs that explore the illusory and futurist aspects of spoken word, audio and radio material. The artists, musicians and performers of Riot Radio Ballad seek to consider—through sound, spoken word and action—violent effusive struggle; the wireless imagination of the futurists; iconoclastic expression and the sonic architecture of the Brooklyn Queens Expressway. All privilege the ear over the eye, from words whispered in instruction or played out through radio waves.
