Field Frequency Flux is site specific radio art composition, transmitted on local FM radio frequency with live in-situ micro local low power FM interventions. Performance experience is based on walking in park during the twilight and in the same time in-situ listening to FM radio broadcast and surrounding sounds.

Field Frequency Flux presents a park as a space where to withdraw from the city’s hustle and bustle, overfilled with information, communication and other stimuli that pull us away from listening. In the park, one enters the silence and emptiness of a winter night. He is equipped with a radio receiver that translates and catches remote electromagnetic sound contents. During the walk, the intercepted messages merge with the sounds of the sleeping nature outside the urban area, which brings an individual toward an organic, earthly sound that contains a syntax very different from everyday language. In this intersection space, full of distant electromagnetic contents and atmospheric sounds of nature, a space for fantasy and for working with memories emerges, which brings about an original and intense experience.

Field Frequency Flux is based on everyday activity of walking and everyday sounds, which we often ignore because of an increased noise pollution and our daily routines. Through these unpretentious actions, a spectator is transformed into a ‘composer’ and ‘visual artist’ who reads and composes sound and space images.

Field Frequency Flux is an intervention in the “physiology” of a park as a specific, almost utopian space in the urban landscape.
Soundwalk Field Frequency Flux explores and initiates sound, spatial and experiential situations in the face of a diverse natural ambience.
