Who We Are, What We Do

Re-Imagined Radio is a community-facing creative research and performance project, led by John F. Barber, that explores radio storytelling by re-thinking and re-creating sound-based storytelling to encourage narrative potentials and community listening experiences.

How We Do It

Re-Imagined Radio begins with the fundamental components of radio storytelling. Sounds of dialogue. Sounds for context and/or effect. And, sounds of music. We draw these sounds from a spectrum of genres: dramas, comedies, oral and aural histories, documentaries, fictions, soundscapes and sonic journeys, radio and sound art. Sound(s) as the storyteller engage the mind's eye. Spark the imagination.

Why We Do It

Re-Imagined Radio has a mission: To promote community engagement through radio storytelling. What we learn from our efforts helps understand how future forms of storytelling might be informed by our embrace of digital technology. Desired results: radio art, transmission art, community art. Radio as never before seen, or heard. Radio, an old medium, providing new opportunities for 21st century storytelling, inside your mind.
