Live Broadcast

kal’s ghostly presences will manifest this winter with the first episodes of radio kal broadcast live on kal’s new website from knowbotiq’s Darkish Matter Radio Studio in rural Jeetze.

DIY radio channel with A Frei, Arshia Fatimah Haq of Discostan, Fatimah Asghar, Dafne Narvaez Berlfein, Promona Sengupta, Shanti Suki Osman, and the participants of the Radio Tooling Workshops

radio kal is a fleeting space for artistic experimentation and for gathering community across space and time. With radio kal it is our hope to create bridges that vibrate across multiple tongues, so we can listen to each other and share our worlds in story and song. It proposes a space to speak about experiences and engagements that connect art, activism, diaspora, migration, ecology, collectivity, family, love and sexuality. The resulting episodes, produced in intervals over the coming year, are collectively created, allowing for forms of learning together.
In this mode, radio kal is DIY from the outset. A series of radio workshops and online tutorials with the sound & radio artist Shanti Suki Osman, video artist, researcher and educator Dafne Narvaez Berlfein and academic, activist and curator Promona Sengupta opens the platform for learning and making experimental and critical radio together. Rooted in feminist methodologies the tooling workshops also channel some of the wealth of knowledge of doing radio formats online that has become available with the pandemic. A second set of radio performance workshops unfolding in summer 2021 will be led by artist, sonic researcher, DJ, and record store co-founder (OOR Records) A Frei.
