this text summarizes a story of slow broadcast and radio inter-action
which unfolds while listening to the stream of 100 influences…

‘influence100’ is a product of on-going audio correspondence between listeners. it maps a collection of 100 influences on NO-GO-ZONES, a public audio radio project, which began its journey with workshops for students and teenagers in South London, drop-in studio sessions, and live broadcasts on Resonance fm in spring 2007. From there, a growing on-line archive and listening exchange developed: the no-go-zones audio archive.

* access and download archived audio here :

‘influence100’ is one stop-over (a station) in an on-going search for ‘the sound of radio’ tuned particularly to radio’s conversational processes and procedures. the journey to this ‘station’ has been a hands-on, ear-in-the-street, and shared research into broadcasting and listening. the DVD compiles findings from a joint search, again, in a conversational way that may ‘sound like radio’.

‘influence100’ is an invitation to copy, continue, re-cycle and re-mix all the findings the project presents, be it by sourcing the audio of the DVD collection or the no-go-zones archive for compositions, or by copying the processes used here as a road-map, or re-cycling the procedures of radio inter-action as a tool-box for ‘radio community making’ where ever you are.

If you enjoy what you are hearing from us and it speaks to you, do get in touch. With your feed-back, and responses, or reports from your own journey, you can continue to influence how the stories of slow broadcast and radio-interaction will unfold and be told in the future…

Thank you for lending an influential ear to no-go-zones.
Thank you for listening!

100 influences

Filed under: 100 influences — nogozones @ 6:34 pm

of the NO-GO-ZONES audio radio project


Below are links to examples of influences, that’s to say re-mixes based on the on-line archive of no-go-zone audio samples. We are listing them here as examples of what we are having in mind when we are now calling for contributions to our
publication project influence100.
The film by David Palazon and the radio broadcasts with Garth Rennie in Canada were actually initiating the very idea of calling for contributions which would be a product or record of somebody’s attentive listening: active listening. We thought that the product of active listening would always be a re-mix or re-edit of sorts, since it would join and relate what had been heard (a sample from the no-go-zone archive) with the listening background, place, experience (the ‘archive’ or ‘work’ or life story) of a listener.

1. live on-air mixes
Garth Rennie, who’s running the weekly show Sound-scape-rhythms on the Canadian station Cjam produced spontaneous on-air mixes from the no-go-zones archive while also running an interview with us on the phone about the project (4th July); or, recently (14th Nov.) mixed audio tracks from the on-line archive with 1970s vinyl recordings of the Canadian Hockey star Bobby Orr talking life and hockey. You can find a list of all the links on the page entitled “radio communities (cjam)”. Here is one of the links to a number of clips from the July broadcast:

2. audio visual mixes and movies
David Palazon accompanied the no-go-zones production team between May and July on a number of occasions, during drop-in radio sessions, studio-van outings and live on-air broadcast in the Soho studio of Resonance104.4fm. The resulting film is a re-mix of his audio and visual recordings with audio tracks from the on-line archive. The film is one chapter of a one-hour film by Palazon recently previewed at AREA10 during a day of performances and events organised by the South London Institute of Common Sense (SLICS). To view the no-go-zones movie, please go to:

3. audio re-mixes
The Liverpool based artist Alan Dunn has made and sent us four audio ‘compositions’, based on one particular track from the no-go-zone archive, re-mixed and re-related to an occasion of his recent interest and work. The re-mixes are beautifully presented on his webpage. Please visit via this link to see and listen:

4. contributions of audio reports:
from the border Windsor/ Detroit
these individual contributions of no-go-zone audio reports from Canada are reaching us as a result of the radio correspondence with Garth, Cjam and ‘Sound-Scape-Rhythms’:

1. NGZ by finalstage
from and with: Brandon Wright & Alex Costaris
conversational drift around no-go-zones on the border Windsor/ Detroit

2. No Go Zones: Where do you Stand: Proud vs. Ambulant
by Shawn Holman & Sabrina Oddi
We interviewed multiple people asking them questions about how they feel about immigration
and the state of multiculturalism in Canada.”

Interviewees: Erikka Johnson, Doug, Rob Wade, Ron Rounding
Music: “Million Stars”, courtesy of Credible Witness, a local Windsor band.

3. “Get Naked (I Got a Plan)”
save the children from corporate domination
by Chantal Pare

4. “These Other Kids”
by Andrew, Lucas & Emily

5. “Keishas Vase”. She is drawing a vase.
by Layla

6. “Bordercity”
by Lindsey
This is a clip discussing life living in the border city of Windor, Ontario and the positives
and negatives that living so close to a U.S. city brings.

DONATIONS: if you would like to make an AUDIO DONATION to the archive of a no-go-zone story you have recorded please contact us via: LISTENERS and USERS of this open access resource are invited to send us an audio (or audio/visual) record of their listening and how they have used some of the archived material
