RadioLina mingles with citizens, inhabitants and participants, acting as a backbone between Lina's Platform and the surroundings.
It aims to listen, attend, research, record and broadcast far and wide, voices and sounds of the events hold by LINA.
We, as an architect and a sound designer, are deeply interested in the urban left over spaces of transformation and unpredictable change. We’d like people to start moving consciously through the landscape that inhabit and involuntary affect. All contributions from LINA's members could reach anybody and become a base of knowledge and care, coordinates to map a common and sensitive ground of research. We will move between streets, neighborhoods, squares, stations, informal gathering spaces, community centers and crowds, from the epicenter of happenings to the periphery, recording sounds and words of projects, encounters, and research, fostering the appaesionment of those who participate and the involvement of those who want to listen. Immersive or subtle, sound will guide curiosity by suggesting and dilating, sometimes amplifying, sometimes reducing the landscapes we cross and the real or hypothetical transformations taking place.
Is it possible to address urban changes through the soundscapes of places? How powerful can be memory, impressions and imagination of the inhabitants?
How magnetic can be sounds and voices from inside the spots of discussion, how much words and sound can break given boundaries and push people to challenge their geographical limits?
We are fascinated to foster the city and its inhabitants a new lexicon of imagination, without drawings, images, using a democratic, easy and light tool, the radio, made of words, sounds and interferences. RadioLina is an immersive light alcove of voices of spaces, to be carried in your pocket and left on, as long as you wish.
