We want to make Radio as intimate as a gift, as social as facebook, as mobile as a phone and, as local as a corner store.
We do this by merging the mixtape, mobile and radio in a very low cost, series of very local projects that we call Mixtape µRadio.
We care about our music, and we care about the declining quality of our musical culture, not just in Australia but around the world. We care that our culture and our communities have been slowly rent apart by identity politics, and the commercial forces that foment and profit from these divisions.
We believe it all starts with a song, but can end with a mixtape.
The nature of the mixtape is that it is a gift. More than this, it is perhaps the most accessible art form to non-artists that doesn’t involve finger-paint. Everyone has been involved in mixtaping at some point. A Mixtape is this: A CD given to a grandmother by a granddaughter: a brother collecting some songs on a memory stick for his sister; A lover composing an iTunes play-list for an ex with the dreams of winning their object back. A tape you found underneath the seat of a car you havn’t cleaned in years.
The gift of music.
