Join us for the launch of Soundspace!

Tune in at 90.3fm,, or hear it live streamed at Beacon Sound.

Soundspace is a radio-based installation series focused on turning the radio into a space for new modes of listening. Every month a new sound artist installs work on Freeform Portland’s bandwidth that questions the ways we interact with radio and our perceptions of spaces unseen.

Our first artist is Roarke Menzies, a New York City-based artist and composer who uses his voice, mouth and body as sound sources, along with audio hardware, software and field recordings, to create electronic and electroacoustic works. His music has been described by The New Yorker as "a layered electronic throb, coming and going, always enhancing but never overpowering."

Menzies's work has been presented at the Material Art Fair in Mexico City, the Spring Break Art Show in New York City, VOLUME in Los Angeles, Diapason Gallery for Sound and Intermedia in Brooklyn, and many others. His music has also been presented on WNYU's Bentwave FM, KFFP Freeform Portland, KCHUNG Radio, and BBC Radio 3 as part of the series "New Year New Music: exploring iconic masterpieces, avant-garde experiments and the next generation of talent."
