Ressonância Magnética

Imagine a radio station like no other. A radio station that makes public those artworks that have no place in traditional broadcasting. A radio station that is an archive of the new, the undiscovered, the forgotten, the impossible. That is an invisible gallery, a virtual arts centre whose location is at once local, global and timeless. And that is itself a work of art. Imagine a radio station that responds rapidly to new initiatives, has time to draw breath and reflect. A laboratory for experimentation, that by virtue of its uniqueness brings into being a new audience of listeners and creators. All this and more, Resonance104.4fm aims to make London’s airwaves available to the widest possible range of practitioners of contemporary art.
Resonance104.4fm is the world’s first radio art station, established by London Musicians’ Collective. It started broadcasting on May 1st 2002. Its brief? To provide a radical alternative to the universal formulae of mainstream broadcasting. Resonance 104.4 fm features programmes made by musicians, artists and critics who represent the diversity of London’s arts scenes, with regular weekly contributions from nearly two hundred musicians, artists, thinkers, critics, activists and instigators; plus numerous unique broadcasts by artists on the weekday “Clear Spot”.

Este é o manifesto de intenção de uma das melhores rádios da actualidade, a londrina Resonance FM. Pouco mais se pode acrescentar à política da emissora, senão realçar a qualidade das temáticas. Desafiante e abrangente, a oferta programática da rádio abraça os estilos mais variados e díspares, exibindo rubricas dedicadas ao dub, ao metal mais extremo e à música contemporânea, entre muitas outras possibilidades extra-musicais. E é, em absoluto, música para os nossos ouvidos saber que tudo está ao alcance de um click aqui...
