By using the art of sound as a social tool, Radio Isolasido invites listeners to unravel isolated things so as to foster acoustic phenomena and a comprehensive understanding through the ensembles of narrative and non-narrative sound artefacts in popular, experimental and multilingual artistic articulation.
Radio Isolasido reflects on the self-isolation situation as a moment to reflect on complex issues. Wok The Rock believes that listening activities may be a solution to problems in a society that is clamoring with arguments. Radio Isolasido is offering deep listening to invite listeners to listen more.
There are 6 serial works that will be shown in all episodes: 4 popular poems translated into the Indonesian LGBTQI+ slang language and read by Tamarra, a contemporary artist from Yogyakarta; rare and extinct bird sounds; narrative music by New Zealand composer Jack Body who describes his experience studying classical Chinese music; a survival food cooking tutorial by a community from Eastern Indonesia living in Yogyakarta; poetry by Handoyo Purwowijoyo; and artificial intelligence vocal work by Raung Jagad Synthetic.
Wok The Rock is an artist, whose practice spans from fine art, design, and music, always keen in experimenting with cross-disciplinary collective work as well as contemporary cultural interventions using a curatorial aesthetic and a speculative approach.
Gatot Danar Sulistiyanto, born May 10, 1980 in Magelang, is a music composer, sound engineer, and the artistic director of the October Meeting Music Festival. He studied Musicology at ISI Yogyakarta and has worked on several music studies related to culture-technology.
