Nutshell: Kaye Mortley

These eclectic pieces (woven of sound, silence, music and words) which we call "radio features" (possibly for want of a better name, so diverse are they in form, content and intention) are finding a new place in the world in the age of the web. No longer will they pass in a moment- "the real time" of their actual duration- leaving no other trace than the imprint left on the ear (and the sensibilities) of the listener who happened to have tuned in when they were floated out onto the airwaves before disappearing, perhaps forever, into some cupboard or other, more sophisticated and official archival system. Still fleeting by their very essence, they are yet becoming immanent in terms of the accessibility which internet offers...

And one wonders just what this implies... for the author, for the piece, and for the listener.

And this is one of the things I hope to reflect upon during the time of the think tank."
