What better way to start a new year, however unpromising it might feel, than by bringing together good friends for an online live performance for Le Placard and ∏node. Enter The World Fuse (Felix, Xentos, Sarah & Knut):
The ∏-node collective had called for ideas for a whole day of broadcasting on their own mini-fm frequencies (108.0 MHz) as well as Radio Campus in Paris (93.9 MHz and DAB+). Knut organised a live performance duo with Tetsuo Kogawa in Tokyo, the outcome of which is archived above. Both used their individual no-input transmitter techniques, all sounds come from feedback and interferences between radio transmitters and receivers.

Many other events found their way on air: live music mixes, an antenna building workshop, DJ-sets, round table discussions, trumpet playing and baby crying. Plus live inputs from a roving reporter in the nearby park and callers to a magic phone number that would replace any current input to the transmitters.
