Aleksander Kolkowski [U Luxembourg] and kitt price [Queen Mary, U London] recreate the experience of ’thinking-in’, when thousands of listeners engaged in radio telepathy experiments during the 1920s and 30s. British and American parapsychologists insisted that broadcasting was simply a means to access minds in the mass, but European investigators claimed they had captured the sound of ‘brain waves’ using radio equipment. MENTAL RADIO reanimates the archived protocols of mass telepathy, mixing the signals received by listeners with the soundscapes of the early twentieth century’s radiating brain.  MENTAL RADIO is brought to life through the voices of:Sandra Binion, Luciano Chessa, Nicolas Collins, Melissa van Drie, David Duff, Angela Dunstan, Christine Ferguson, Eugene Giddens, Alfred Hiatt, Vitaly Kamluk, Aleksander Kolkowski, Michal Libera, Lou Mallozzi, Glyn Perrin, kitt price, Damien Simon, Quentin Skinner and Andreas Sommer.

Repeat broadcasts will air on 2nd November, 8pm, and 3rd November, 10am.
