Re-Imagined Radio

Re-Imagined Radio is a research project led by John F. Barber that produces and shares sound-based storytelling as live performances, radio broadcasts, listening events, live stream and on demand audio, and beyond. All these outcomes are undertaken as literary-media art and performance for contemporary audiences. This website provides information about these performances and the research inquiries behind them. LEARN more: mission, background, manifesto, outcomes.

Re-Imagined Radio is the production and performance "leg" of Barber's Radio Art+Performance+Research (RAPR) research focus. The other components are Radio Nouspace, an experimental online radio station providing on demand and interactive listening opportunities for exemplary examples of radio drama and art, and Barber's creative practice with radio+sound art. Each is a form of research-as-practice, action research, and/or practice-based research. LEARN more about Barber's university scholarship and research.
