LapTopRadio is a real nomadic radio: broadcasting irregularly on the internet with a most simple dispositive: a laptop with a modem connected to the mobile-phone network. If there is a mobile connection, we can broadcast. The old dream of independent pirate radio (but now on the internet) is coming true.

Radio is provided with its cloak of invisibility, like any other medium. It comes to us ostensibly with person-to-person directness that is private and intimate, while in more urgent fact it is really a subliminal echo chamber of magical power to touch remote and forgotten chords.

LapTopRadio:
LapTopRadio is a real nomadic radio: broadcasting irregularly on the internet with a most simple setting: a laptop with a modem connected to the mobile-phone network. If there is a mobile connection, we can broadcast. The old dream of independent pirate radio (but now on the internet) is coming true.

LapTopRadio is an experimental structure exploring the possibilities of radio networking and streaming, which seek to counter or supplement forms of public broadcasting through creating unique forms of collectivity.
At the same time we want to question and understand the parameters of radio's historical, medial and aesthetical status, the notion of place, corporeality, social exchange, and the politics of information. What are the ideas behind concepts from modernist "Wireless Imagination" to "Radical Radio"?

This radio is a collective project, initiated by Laurent Schmid, developed together with Jonathan Frigery, Ceel Mogami de Haas and many friends; this research-project is linked to work.master,a MFA-studies programme at HEAD Genève, Geneva University of Art and Design.
