Ring Road

Creator:

Description: 

A recording of Italian radio, wind, and traffic designed to demonstrate the "meaningless" cacophony that can be present in the "nothing" of absent listening. Inspired by Daniela Cascella's descriptions of listening to radio while sitting in traffic on the ring road outside of Rome, this recording draws attention to the disparity between external sound ("noisiness") and content ("meaning").
