What is Re-Imagined Radio?
Re-Imagined Radio offers radio drama, both contemporary and from the Golden Age of Radio (1930s-1950s), as live performances featuring community voice actors, Foley artists, and other creative people. Performances are also live streamed on the Internet, extending community outreach to an international scale.
Re-Imagined Radio evolved from a digital storytelling course John Barber taught in 2013. The purpose was to investigate sound-based storytelling in the radio medium through live community performances. With the addition of live Internet streaming, Re-Imagined Radio has become a radio art—transmission art project. Each Re-Imagined Radio performance is offered in a 1936 movie theatre. Community voice actors, Foley sound artists, and other creative people re-create radio dramas using original scripts. Digital SFX, music, visual backdrops, and social media provide new storytelling opportunities. Live audiences see, hear, and sometimes participate in sound-based radio narratives as they are re-created before their eyes and ears. Online audiences listen only, but in that listening radio sparks their imaginations like no other medium. The result: old medium, new engagement. Radio as never before seen, or heard.
