Horizontal Radio: a living radio organism

Exploration with Elisabeth Zimmermann

In June 1995, Horizontal Radio was launched, an interconnected, interactive 24-hour radio art project combining different technologies. For the first time, the channels of more than twenty public and independent radio stations were connected to the Internet to form over twenty network nodes in Europe, Australia, Canada, and Israel. Performances, concerts, and installations by more than 200 artists connected via radio channels and the Internet and entered into dialog with one another. The result was a living radio organism that opened up new possibilities for media and radio art. Elisabeth Zimmermann explores this groundbreaking communication project.
