Pop Up Circus - an outback odyssey

Last spring, the opal mining Corner Country town of White Cliffs held an Underground Art Festival and, as part of the celebration, Jon Rose led a group of musician/sound artists into the small but very engaged community. The Sound Circus brought sonic work, which uses fragile new media and homemade technologies, to challenging and remote environments and conditions hostile to Homo urbanus (heat, flies, floods, snakes, etc). It's a test for a musician, their creativity, and their technologies. The mission also examined the notion of whether a group of 'blowins' could contribute to a 'singing up of country' in a place where indigenous traditional culture has all but been eradicated. (Mutawintji National Park once hosted huge corrobories of over 3,000 people.) The circus sound artists offered improvised performances, interactive musical ‘play’ and highly successful school workshops. http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/intothemusic/pop-up-circus---an-outback-odyssey/4675368

Tribute to John Blades

We pay tribute to structural engineer, award-winning radio producer, tape loop manipulator, disability advocate, spoken word artist, outsider art collector, experimental music and true crime aficionado, John Blades - who died in late 2011. We play material from John’s many radio programs, hear his friends’ and family’s accounts of his life and chart his history as a tireless supporter and exponent of ‘marginal’ culture. http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/nightair/tribute-to-john-blades/3823736

Eating myself

Exploring our society's obsession with food as a marker of our identity and why we still feel empty despite all the sumptuous cuisines. What we eat is supposed to indicate who we are — for example, eating organic means you're ethical; eating blowfish sashimi means you're adventurous; grating white truffle on your pasta means you're sophisticated. In fact, food has been so thoroughly colonised by commentary and narrative in our consumer-driven culture that what we eat is becoming less and less about nutrition or fuel for the body but more about consuming symbolism and meaning — like social status and identity. http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/360/eating-myself/3133662

Tavi Gevinson: Tavi's World

Tavi Gevinson was 11 when she kicked off her writing career with a fashion blog called Style Rookie. She had smart, sharp observations on fashion and visual style and the usual girl things that an 11 year old is obsessed with and she had an audience. And it was big. They were pre-teens and teenagers who had someone from their cohort who spoke to them. Gevinson was soon reporting on Fashion Weeks in Paris, London and New York and quickly got up the noses of the fashion editors and style queens. Who was this upstart 11 year old? Your first response may be to immediately dislike someone this young... with talent; and you might immediately assume that she’s as obnoxious as some soapie star. You’d be wrong. Tavi is now 17. Though it’s 17 going on 48 or 50. She’s smart, witty, erudite, with a good line in self-deprecating patter. She was a keynote speaker at the Melbourne Writers Festival and she packed out the Athanaeum Theatre with young women wearing ‘Tavi headgear’ the bunches of roses that she used to wear when she was 11 or 12, and their mums and the odd dad. Here, she’s giving her ‘fangirl’ keynote speech. http://www.abc.net.au/tv/bigideas/stories/2013/09/09/3840224.htm

The Hothouse: Art and Politics at the Tin Sheds

The Tin Sheds were a hothouse of art, music, ideas and politics. They were one of the most radical and memorable 'alternative art spaces' in Australia during their heyday from the late 1960s to the end of the 1970s. A group of dilapidated corrugated iron sheds across a busy city road from the University of Sydney were a place where -- for a time -- it seemed anything was possible. http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/hindsight/the-hothouse/4162158

Interview: Tom Standage

There is nothing new under the sun, says Ecclesiastes, and when it comes to social media Tom Standage has set out to prove the saying right. His day job is as a journalist and the digital editor at The Economist. But he's also the author of a book called The Victorian Internet. And he's got another in the pipeline called Cicero's Web. I began by asking him about a technology which totally transformed Australian life in the Victorian era - the telegraph wire.
