Agent Radio


Automatic, Ongoing Soundscape

Agent Radio is an automatic radio station built around a computer with a broadband internet connection. The algorithm which runs the station downloads random sound files from the internet, and mixes them into an ongoing soundscape.

Agent Radio is one of the main projects taking place in the Department of Random Radio of the Institute of Artificial Art Amsterdam. The IAAA promotes the establishment of dedicated radio stations for the diffusion of sound-environments created by algorithmic music, physical processes, industrial machinery, randomly selected audio-documents, and arbitrarily sampled live sound.
