Receiver is a CD-length composition in thirteen parts that was collaboratively created in multiple phases. Musical sounds and textures intended for radio broadcast were composed over the course of an artist residency at free103point9 Wave Farm in 2007. Next, a “transmission installation” was created, with this new music broadcast simultaneously on several adjacent FM radio frequencies. Participants used hand-held radios to explore and record the interactions between these broadcasts. Finally, their recordings were used as source material for the music of Receiver.
