(And to be precise, it is no more him, but only his voice which can be heard, fully separated from his lived, speaking body and transmitted by a technological device.)

The fact that anybody can potentially listen to what you are saying on the radio, already unsettled Guglielmo Marconi. We will investigate this strange relation and focus on the listener.

We will have to surprise ourselves – there is so much to discover. is a real nomadic art-radio: broadcasting irregularly on the internet with a most simple setting: a laptop with a modem connected to the mobile-phone net. If there is a mobile connection, we can broadcast. The old dream of independent pirate radio (but now on the internet) is coming true.
