Radio Droogdok Launches

Tune in – Turn up – Join the conversation!

Radio Droogdok is a sonic off shoot of the Miniature Museum project which launched in April 2018, thanks to Arts Council England funding, on for SVA SITE Festival.

Tara collected and sculpted stories into a series of ‘Transition Transmissions’ – broadcasts from Dutch docklands to post-industrial Stroud from a Miniature Museum-Radio Droogdok mobile radio hut.

In 2019 a new venture was launched with the Radio Droogdok radio hut taking a fortnight hut-in-residence at Museum In The Park, and presenting a new collaboration with Jonny Fluffypunk.  Jonny performed his show from the hut ‘Test Transmission From The Edge of The World’ as part of Stroud Theatre Festival.  Many thanks to Stroud Festival and The Museum In The Park for supporting that happening.

The Radiophonic Hut rolls on into 2020 with tech developments and new experiments in collaboration with Jonny and other artists, participants and partners, thanks to ACE for another stage of project funding!


‘Coming from Radio Heaven’: Radio Droogdok In residence at Stroud Valleys Artspace Gallery

  • Wednesday, November 11, 2020 10:00 AM
    Saturday, November 28, 2020 3:00 PM
  • SVA 4 John Street Stroud, England, GL5 2HA United Kingdom

Miniature Museum inventors Tara Downs and Bart Sabel present new experiments from audio offshoot project Radio Droogdok in collaboration with Jonny Fluffypunk, Euan Maco McAleece & Knaïve Theatre presents: A Digital Lyceum.

“We’re just back from Radio Heaven with a trailer load of gorgeous radios and half-soldered transmitting switchboards. Intrigued by the alien sounds from between radio stations, the romanticism of far-away names on the dial, and the manifestations from the fifth element, Aether. Radio art play with found sounds and outdated technology.”

This work-in-progress R&D residency will include further experiments in collaboration with Jonny Fluffypunk and Maco, playing with audiences (when allowed), sonic developments of the ‘Test Transmission From The Edge of The World’ show and live medium-wave radio mixing. Mashing up reverb, theatre and radio; combining revived vestiges of lo-fi history with digital futures and in-the-moment interventions.

With experiments broadcast through Resound Radio, and culminating in 2 binaural live streams hosted virtually by Knaïve Theatre presents: A Digital Lyceum, who’s inaugural season of innovative digital works runs from 22nd October – 12th December.

The Gallery will be open to visitors on Friday & Saturday 10am – 3pm

The Digital Lyceum events and after talks on 27th & 28th Nov.
