Earlid | Radio without scaffolding, summer 2018
Podcasting is built out of a referent, it’s constantly trying to justify its existence by other means, rather than simply being.
—Garrett Tiedemann, The White Whale
There’s an immense freedom in the so-called loss of the gatekeeper. But what about the scaffolding that buttresses these newly built, radioesque constructions—whether launched more than a decade ago or this year?
Eight contributors offer musings through writing, recorded mixes and conversations to engage the resonances in both radio and podcasting’s narrative artistry. Their experiences flow along a continuum of curator-collectors; creative interviewers; improv composers—readily offering platforms for discussing artistic practice.
This public sounding is Earlid’s second online ‘gathering.’ More than 60 written comments are moderated by its curator who also composed a 6-part conversation among some of the contributors, part of Earlid’s ongoing dialogs with sound- and radio-artists.
