Fallout

UK
1999-2000
Online audio project, live and archived streams
For: naturesoundrecording and technocultural studies

Fallout, an Internet radio location, is audio byproduct of Mute Magazine, the magazine of culture and technology. Fallout's mission is to preserve with naturesoundrecording accuracy the accents, language errors, mousepad squeaks, and technical artifacts of our natural environments – often missing from online theory or printed text. The Fallout archive contains cultural commentaries from voicechip-implanted toys, amateur ornithologists, highlights from the 1999 UK eclipse, mayoral ranting, and studies of military Landscape, Speedgarage & artist-run Space from a home-made, yet highly technologised, listening position.
Fallout processing style could be described as information media via DJ technique. In future model 24h Fallout intended to be local paper for the paperless technoworker.
Fallout was delivered monthly in 60 minute modules, from dance music location GaiaLive. Fallout channel was using the automated scheduler technology of the World Service Scheduler (that was available at http://www.irational.org), and developed voicemail upload techniques (U-phone).
Fallout was produced and edited by: Kate Rich, editorial: Mute, music consultant: Hari Kunzru.
