CFRC Radio Residents' Audio Art Launch: November 16

October 27, 2011

KINGSTON, ON – CFRC 101.9FM, Kingston's only campus and community radio station, presents an Audio Art launch at the Screening Room on Wednesday, November 16 at 7pm.

 Over the summer, CFRC recruited two local writers to produce sound art projects for broadcast and public performance.  Francisco Lopez and Annie Dunsford will debut their finished pieces on November 16.  Garcia's "Sobre Las Olas Bajo el Maple" shares the voices of Latin American immigrants in Kingston.  Dunsford's "Suono Fuga" explores the relationship between sound and identity. The launch takes place at the Screening Room, 120 Princess Street, starting at 7pm.  This event is free and all are welcome.  The pieces will also be broadcast on CFRC 101.9fm and on-line at CFRC.ca on Sunday, November 20 at 2pm.

 CFRC's Radio Residencies program continues in 2011-12 with the recruitment of two more writers to produce 60-minute audio documentaries.  Interested applicants should submit a 1- to 2-page proposal, outlining the theme, subject matter, source materials, production techniques, a plan for involving CFRC volunteers and Kingston community members, and addressing how the documentary will engage with local issues and stories, reflect the diversity of the region and connect with listeners from other places. 

 Proposals may be submitted to cfrcops@ams.queensu.ca until Monday, November 21 at 4pm.  Successful applicants will have access to broadcast production training, CFRC’s audio production studios, portable digital recorders, honoraria to recruit project volunteers, and a $1000 honorarium for completing the project.  Finished pieces will be broadcast on CFRC, shared with other community radio stations and debuted at the Screening Room in February.   CFRC's Radio Residencies project is made possible through the City of Kingston and the Kingston Arts Council through the City of Kingston Arts Fund.  For more information, visit www.cfrc.ca.
