Minimal is maximal: radio_int.14/37 is formal reduction of the finest kind. From a horizontal white line that splits the picture field in the middle, nervous light rays flutter into black ether. In radio_int.14/37, the media artist Lia develops a reduced visual composition set to the filigree music from @c. Stimulus for the creation of this work was provided by the Portuguese electronic label Crónica. They invited musicians and video artists from around the world to each create a two minutelong miniature for a CD and DVD compilation on the theme «Essays on Radio: Can I have two minutes of your time?» Radio should hereby offer an artistic reference point as a sound medium, as technology, and as a cultural form of expression. Similar to previous collaborations between @c and Lia, also created for radio_int.14/37, the visual level for the already existing soundtrack arose by means of specially programmed re-activated software.
