A fog is no more a container than radio is a cup to be filled with programming. Land, sea, and airwaves combine as a refrain of uneasy signals within a golden fog. A concert created from listening and living within the fog zone along the central coast of California, using radiophonic and electronic instruments.
Anna Friz is a sound, transmission and media artist, and media studies scholar. Her work reflects upon media ecologies, infrastructure and environment, time perception, radio and transmission art histories, and critical fictions, with a focus on listening, improvisation, site-specificity, and repurposing technologies. Since 1998 she has created self-reflexive radio for broadcast, installation or performance, where radio is the source, subject, and medium of the work. She also creates large-scale audiovisual installations and composes for film, theater, and contemporary dance. Her most recent works include the outdoor transmission sculpture Solar Radio (with Absolute Value of Noise) at Wave Farm, NY; the 22-hour live radio performance Fog Refrain, and We Build Ruins, a series of media art works expressively considering mining and industrial corridors in the high altitude deserts in northern Chile. Anna Friz is currently Associate Professor in the Film and Digital Media Department of the University of California, Santa Cruz.
