Radio Break is an exhibition on the air, presenting twelve artworks in locations throughout Los Angeles conveyed through low-power radio transmissions during two weeks and live events held on two consecutive weekends. Radio Break connects participants with the ambient sounds of the city, inviting them to tune in to its history, noise, narratives, and music.

Static Age involved the selection and sampling of the Imaginary Landscape compositions numbers 1,2,3,4, and 5 by John Cage from the 1930’s, 40’s, and 50’s. These compositions were digitally captured and placed one after the other in chronological order and layered in sequence on multiple tracks so that they are available for digital playback simultaneously. This formatting created a block of samples both horizontally, unfolding in time, but also stacked vertically. The sampled compositions were played back and electronically processed while performed through electronic processing. This was recorded and uploaded to an iPod, that was connected to the receiver and transmitter to broadcast it live and then playback for the duration of the exhibition.
