Every Conversation is an Invitation

A hyper-local trans-national hybrid radio, collecting and transmitting conversations with people who pass through the Transit Lounge.
Start a conversation; tell a story about the places in between, what inspires you and keeps life interesting, adventures, dreams and visions… Socially engaged networks, embodied interactions, collaborative futures, informal esoteric floating oceans of conversation.

Radio in Transit receiving and transmitting from wherever you are.

"When I was young all I wanted to do was travel the world and meet interesting people. Now as a professionally nomadic artist & producer, I invite you to join me in conversations with extraordinary people doing amazingly creative things around the world. Listen in to share their stories and learn how these trailblazers have developed their own style across different fields. Each one has dedicated their lives to the exploration of creativity and meaning with passion & purpose."

Join us in the Transit Lounge and enjoy the free-form conversational flow into the future!

An oasis in transit. Collecting conversations instead of souvenirs. Dreaming new futures. As people pass through the Transit Lounge, they leave something of themselves and share in our 'home' radio space.






5th Inter-format Symposium on time (and inter-formativity) Nida Art Colony, Lithuania

The participatory nature of the symposium - between a conference and an art festival - brings together 40 professionals (artists, curators, scientists, researchers, time-managers). The 5th edition of the Inter-format symposium has two goals: To reflect upon and rethink the symposium as an experiential and discursive space where knowledge sharing happens in very different formats, beyond our usual understanding of what is a lecture and performance; To consider the role of time as a medium for sharing experiences and knowledge, including it’s out/on-goingness and limitations.

Jodi Rose in conversation with Franco Berardi Bifo about the anxiety and pathology of the net generation, the attention economy, exhaustion and oil painting in the green room at transmediale.11 in Berlin.

Franco 'Bifo' Berardi is a writer, philosopher, media- theorist and activist. He founded the magazine A/traverso (1975-1981) and was a co-founder of Radio Alice, the first free pirate radio station in Italy. He was involved in the political movement of 'Autonomia' in Italy during the 1970s, then fled to Paris where he worked with the French philosopher Felix Guattari in the field of schizoanalysis. In 2002 he was an integral part of setting up the Telestreet movement in Italy. Berardi is currently a Professor of Social History of Communication at the Accademia di Belle Arti of Milan.

Audio report of Particle/Wave, in Helsinki, Finland as a part of the Pixelache festival April 2005.

Mixdown & Edit by Seamus O'Donnell (LifeLoop)

The piece was presented at RadioTesla, Berlin on the 18th of May. It consists of a mixdown of various live elements of Particle/Wave. Beginning with Jon Eriksens' hypersonance. Interspersed with phone-ins, sound bites from the seminar, field recordings, live performances from Mbar - Decangular Vibes by Tautvydas (Lithuania), Slackfurter and Son (California) + Shadowcasting (remote net performance, Steve Bradley, USA), sounds of the Ophone installation, short interviews. Jodi Rose testing a bridge + audio reports from a sauna + a kitchen.

Interviews, recordings and mixdown made by Seamus O'Donnell (LifeLoop). I developed the concept, co-managed call for applications and selection process, organised venues, accommodation, catering for 35 international participants and 100 guests, installed & co-directed programming for festival radio broadcast designed event program/opening night concert, produce live radio, facilitate networking & collaborations.


ABC Radio Feature Program

Do you dream of leisurely ocean voyages, navigating by the stars, drinking martinis, watching the ice flow, or the terror of being lost at sea? The romance of the cruise ship, the mystery of the far north, the dangerous depths and - wait a minute - and the latest in art and technology come together as we engage with a flotilla of artists, theorists, sound installations, electronic music makers, DJs and cultural catalysts gathered together on an aural cruise across the Baltic Sea. It's the International Symposium of Electronic Artists sharing ideas and ideology about what sounds best and how to deal with the might of the multi-media manifestation of mammon. So, join navigator-artist-observer Jodi Rose aboard the 'Silja' as we steam through an audio seascape that could only happen on The Night Air.

Be someplace, not just any place, and not everywhere. Be where you are, look deep into the world from your point of view, and into the self, and out to the Other. Share what you experience”. TRACES started with a shared desire to bring together cultural workers who have adapted to increasingly high levels of professional mobility as a necessity for economic survival, in order to exchange skills, knowledge and experiences that we have accumulated through our personal journeys. Allowing a space for interaction outside the frenzied rush of relentless cultural production, we hoped to provide opportunities for a deeper exchange and understanding between participants and places, opening to inhabit the world in and through all our senses... drinking Lithuanian herb tea in the sauna, and eating cake.
