The No Outsides Polymorphous Radio Station (NOPRS FM) will present a stream of audio content to conference attendees (and other local radio tuners) through the creation of mini-FM broadcast zones during the three days of the event.
NOPRS FM will feature musical tracks suggested by conference participants, interviews, field recordings, No Outsides Band jam sessions and Vox-Pop style contributions.
Our aim, following renowned radio artist Tetsuo Kogawa, is to consider radio in its extreme possibilities through the practice of free narrowcasting. Conference attendees can tune in through the use of small portable radios provided to No Outsides participants when they register.
