New commissioned program for Radio Art Zone, a 100-day radio art station for Esch2022, which is broadcasting in the south of Luxembourg by Radio ARA on 87.8 FM, and is live-streamed for a worldwide audience and transmitted by a network of international partners. On 6 September 2022, my 22-hour radio piece is titled ‘Orbits’ and will be broadcast.
Orbits is framed by the time that a low-orbiting satellite takes to make a complete circuit around our planet. The 22-hour work is comprised of 12 segments, each an imagined orbit, and each beginning and ending in Esch. Each orbital loop takes a different direction around the world and is inspired by the unique character of the path traveled, from the point of view of an orbiting body which can tune into multiple radio frequencies simultaneously and listen to the sounds of the earth, from the ground and into space.
