VVAA Essays on Radio: Can i have 2 minutes of your time?

Publisher: Crónica (Portugal)

Essays on Radio aims to comment on the sound medium, on the technology and the culture of radio. This theme was intended to provide the artists with a starting point to approach the work. Crónica was not looking for exercises on composing from shaping any given sound matter but rather on relating the musical pieces to this particular context: Radio. They asked all the artists to produce the pieces with a fixed duration. Given the fact they were closing the 2nd year of Crónica releases, it was proposed that all tracks should have the fixed duration of 2 minutes, exactly. Hence the sub-title: Can I have two minutes of your time?

The DVD showcases video work specially produced for this compilation, from some of Crónica’s artists and some special guests.
