Ed Baxter, Oliver Fay and Peter Lanceley present specially selected and commissioned audio works as part of Netaudio 2011. Using the format of a live webzine, Netaudio explores the future of broadcasting with a series of radio features in three magazine strands. The programme is co-curated by Cenatus and Resonance104.4fm.

At 1pm in The Picnoleptic Muse Ed Baxter looks at net audio interventions from the 1960s to the present day, arguing that that the picnoleptic character of digital media is at odds with academic and other narratives which seek to explain it. Integrating submissions to the Netaudio Festival by CAMRAS, Cheap Machines, Preslav Literary School and others with historical pieces by Max Nehaus, St Sanders, Wiggle etc, the programme investigates randomness, interreuptiopn, digression and the notion of rhythmic identity.

At 3pm in Netaudio Inputs sound artist Oliver Fay focuses on some of the featured artists of the Festival, interviewing the commissioned artists Stefan Blomeier, VHS Head, Liliane Lijn and more. What (if anything) binds these diverse artists together?

At 4.30pm in a This Music Wins special Peter Lanceley addresses blogs, networks and social media from the position of a practitioner engaged as both a critic (via his “This Music Wins” blog) and a music maker (with post-rockers Kinnie The Explorer).
