Radio Fragments is a radiophonic project that aims to explore an auditory
attention, different from the one usually associated with the experience of
listening to the radio, making use of the spaces in between words and songs
that occur throughout the radiophonic discourse as its main reagent.

Its basic formula consists of an analysis-control mechanism (built in Super
Collider) residing inside a computer to which a real-time mainstream radio
broadcast is fed. This mechanism acts as a reversed-noise-gate, singling out
what is usually ignored or avoided in a radiophonic context (whispers,
stumbles, pauses, dead spaces and errors) and muting all the other sounds
such as words or songs.These punctuating fragments become the raw materials
from which Radio Fragments sonic concoction is brewed.

Recently a light responsive system, built with Arduino, was added to the
installation. Such system reacts and enhances the moment of emergence of the
fragments by brightening up momentarily and then returning to its initial
dim state.
