Radio Ensemble invites UK and Indonesian sound artists and composers to perform together as an ensemble across parallel time and space, broadcast in both Indonesia and the UK.
Radio Ensemble has been curated by Indonesia-based curator Ignatia Nilu as part of an exchange hosted by Abandon Normal Devices and in response to restrictions for musical collaboration over the last 12 months. These limitations have necessitated alternative modes and expanded possibilities for spaces of collaboration through art and technologies. Radio Ensemble combines analog and digital technologies to connect multiple players; musicians, sound artists, composers and programmers from the UK and Indonesia in a speculative performance. Each of the ensemble players are guided in the performance by an auditive score composed by Indonesian composer Gatot Danar
Tune in to andfestival.org.uk/live on Saturday 19 June from 8pm for a live broadcast out of the Domes FM studio, Bidston Observatory. The broadcast will then be available to listen to online until Sunday 11 July 2021.

Radio Ensemble is curated by Ignatia Nilu, commissioned and produced by Abandon Normal Devices. Supported using public funding from Arts Council England and British Council Indonesia. With further support from Bidston Observatory Artistic Research Centre.
