Radio After Radio: Redefining Radio Art in the Light of New Media Technology through Expanded Practice is the title of my PhD practice based research. This paper focuses on the extended boundaries of radio art, considering how radio art might be defined in relation to sound art, music, and media art. Mapping the shifting parameters of radio art in the digital era has prompted a consideration of how radio can be seen to be moving from being a predominantly shared "live" event to one consumed "on demand" by a fragmented audience across a multiplicity of platforms. I have been exploring the implications of this transition through my radio practice, which focuses upon the productive tensions that characterize the artist’s engagement with radio technology, specifically between the autonomous potentialities offered by the reappropriation of obsolete technology and the new infrastructures and networks promised by the exponential development of new media. The radio installations outlined here - Radio Mind and Numbers - are individual works which form part of a suite of prerecorded works for Switch Off, a project that takes as its overarching theme the possible futures for FM radio. It incorporates elements from a series of eight "trace" stations, produced as a series of radio actions, installations, broadcasts, and interventions between 2007 and 2014.
