Graeme Miller's On Air
You have until the 5th August to catch Graeme Miller's brilliantly conceived On Air, which forms part of http://www.exhibitionroadshow.co.uk/ on Exhibition Road in London.
On Air is a durational site-specific radio broadcast that compacts the elements of local radio into a simple poetic system. Broadcasters from the worlds of sport and the arts have been invited to narrate the constant flow of activity visible from their eyrie on Exhibition Road in London, from passers-by below them to clouds over the North Downs, to planes landing at Heathrow.
To listen in you can pick up a bespoke in-ear FM radio from one of the stewards, and become both observer and observed.
Graeme Miller is an artist, theatre maker and composer. Emerging from the bold and influential stage work of Impact Theatre Co-operative in the 1980s, a group he co-founded, his own work now embraces a wide range of media. With the idea of being ‘a composer of many things that may include music’, he has made theatre, dance, installations and interventions. Often reflecting a sense of landscape and place, he regularly makes site-specific works to commission.
The work was commissioned by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, and produced by DREAM.
