Margherita Brillada is a sound artist and radio maker-curator based in The Hague. She is currently a research associate at the Institute of Sonology and a PhD candidate at the ACPA University of Leiden (NL), with a practice-oriented research project entitled: Re-thinking Radio Art: Community Radio and WebRadio. By re-thinking radio as an exhibition space for experimental sound art, the project attempts to articulate a specific “radio poetics” according to the sonic dimension intrinsic to the medium. Her practice involves soundscape composition by exploring multichannel systems to create immersive listening experiences, engage with audiences and bring a voice to current social thematics.

Producing radio artworks in search of new synergies between pure abstraction and storytelling, she pays particular attention to the urban soundscape and the anthropogenic presence in public spaces, emphasising the role of the disembodied and acousmatic voice in the electroacoustic context. To collect the sound materials for her compositions, in her practice she includes sound walk as exploration in situ of site-specific spaces with different field recording techniques.

She is currently developing the experimental radio project: On Air – On Site in Den Haag, collaborating with the Institute of Sonology and Cashmere Radio in Berlin.
