Thought : Interrupted is a traveling version of elektron.signal podcast. It is an amateur radio station in a camper van broadcasting conversations, impressions, sounds and ideas from villages, towns, bogs and, every now and then, even from festivals. Like this time from Homo Novus in Riga and ANTI – Contemporary Art Festival in Kuopio.
Who is there?!? Who performs and why do they? Who visits and who are they? Who is here with friends and who has no other friend besides this hickey radio program keeping them company?
We share a possibility to hang out with us, three random Estonians, and listen on spot or enjoy the program during the darkening autumn nights at your preferred locations. Some of the program will be announced once we know what it will be and some of it will be spontaneous involving us, you and the ones we have yet to meet.
Accurate weather announcements guaranteed. Always. Yours.
