On October 30th 1938 Orson Welles' radio broadcast of The War of the Worlds panicked the American public because it suggested that an interplanetary conflict had begun with an alien invasion in New York. Inspired by Welles' experience, "Radio Rhythm - performance of voices and sounds" wishes to remember the impressive communicative power of the radio, a prima donna in the communications world at the time. In "Radio Rhythm" one rediscovers the extraordinary absorbing capacity of sounds and voices that were still autonomous from images. A capacity that we feel has remained unchanged even today.
