It is a radio programme about the radio, and a proposal which reviews, through several characters of the twentieth century, not only the forms this medium has evolved into since its beginnings, but also the forms it could have turned into. It is also a forensic analysis of a means of communication which, in addition to proposing a new world model, has radically changed the way of understanding the body. In conclusion, a series of stories of the ether, written from the site.

#03 Interferences, ghosts, desire and fear

Frederic Jurgensson (1903-1987) and Konstantin Raudive (1909-1974) are considered the fathers of EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena) or the commonly known as psicophonies. An artist and a pscicologist, respectively, who teamed up to establish the theoretical basis of one of the most usual practices of the modern parapsychology. The act of listening to voices in the ether sound shares a lot of characteristics with the act of listening to the radio. We could also acknowledge that are, even in practice, just the same. Diction, words and music are the only changes, but never the desire, the fear of listening what we really desire to listen.
