Breakdown (Tom Roe)
Breakdown (A Forma Foma)
sample the album:
Tom Roe is a sound transmission artist sometimes known as DJ Dizzy. He co-founded microradio station 87X in Tampa, Florida; and, with Greg Anderson and Violet Hopkins, founded free103point9 as a microradio collective in Brooklyn, New York in 1997. Roe performs with transmitters and receivers using multiple bands (FM, CB, walkie-talkie), as well as prepared CDs, vinyl records, and various electronics. He creates radio soundscapes using locally available frequencies, often to the beat of manipulated pop song samples. He has collaborated with Pierre Huyghe, Kristin Lucas, members of the Gold Sparkle Band, Matt Bua, Carrie Dashow, Tali Hinkis, Matt Mikas, and many others on various projects. His album The Worst Hour of the Year will be released in 2008.
A Forma Foma:
Matt Bua makes installations, drawings, films, videos, and performance art pieces. His recent work takes form in large-scale fantastical spaces that redefine and re-imagine found objects and sustainable resources as functional elements in architecture. Bua's present project is the construction of small scale examples of vernacular, experimental, and visionary architecture on a piece of land in Catskill NY (http://bhomepark.blogspot.com/). Bua's Sing Sun Room (2007), is the augural installation at the Wave Farm Transmission Sculpture Garden.
