Raven Chacon: Radio Station Name TBC
2020-2021 Capp St Artist-in-Residence

Noise is always there. It vibrates through air and water and travels through time and space, falling in and out of sync with whatever it meets. When brought in from the margins, noise can advocate for a different way of listening and for a different way of relating to one’s environment and to oneself.

In the hands of composer, performer, and artist Raven Chacon, noise becomes generative.

On the occasion of his residency, Chacon turns the Wattis website into a radio station and evolving soundscape. A 24/7 live audio stream, conceived entirely by the artist and guest collaborators, runs from April 1 to June 30, 2021.
