Binary Sounds

25 May 2019

La Casa Encendida
Ronda de Valencia, 2

For one day, the Courtyard at La Casa Encendida will be transformed into a temporary radio studio sending out live broadcasts by some of the world’s best online music stations, with special guest artists and free admission for all. Binary Sounds is Spain's first digital music radio event.

Fibre optics have replaced FM technology and audiences are growing exponentially, overcoming the limitations of airwaves and physical borders. Binary Sounds presents a selection of collective radio projects launched by artists and associations that are bringing freshness and diversity to internet radio broadcasts across the globe.

From the UK, we’ll have the musical selections of Global Roots, one of the most popular shows on Worldwide FM, the internet radio station founded in London by veteran DJ Gilles Peterson; hailing from Portugal, Peekaboo Jams will introduce us to the beats playing in Lisbon’s hottest clubs, as part of the Portuguese East Side Radio. Broadcasting from the Literary Quarter, Radio Relativa is a young station that lets listeners round the world tune in to what’s happening on the Madrid music and culture scene. The cult show Nice Strangers Explora will temporarily leave the Radio Raheem studio in downtown Milan to play the catalogue of the record label chosen by Silvia Mal, the show’s creator and host, for us at La Casa Encendida. dublab, the pioneering LA-based radio, is represented by some members of its Barcelona branch dublab.es. Their show Latitudes will focus on the work of local musicians and producers that are at the same time, regular hosts at the station. One of the youngest projects is Radio Primavera Sound, where Flaca and Rocío (CHICA) host Pal’Piso, a show that broadcasts and analyses the urban music scene.

Special guests Thris Tian (Global Roots/Worldwide FM), Marco Aimo (Radio Raheem) and Carles Yagüez (dublab.es) will also participate in a round table moderated by DJ Javi Bayo, curator of Binary Sounds, "WIFI killed/saved the radio star", and the workshop "A ritmo de app” (App Beat) for younger audiences.
