Radio Collection is a performatic installation by Jorge Chikiar with the use of 8 AM and FM modulated radios. The main aim of tuning in broadcasts of different radio dial stations of the NY area is to use the phonemes as part of an embryo of sounds which will give shape to the structure of the work intervened with the collaboration of local artists playing their instruments and processed in real time.

Chikiar has produced works for Laurie Anderson, Michael J. Shumacher, Thurston Moore, Jim O’Rourke, David Behrman, Zeena Parkins, Ikue Morí, Steve Reich and more. He has composed works such as Wu Wang for Fractus Ensemble, Granos en el Viento work for Moxenio and Live Electronics, Cracks of Ice, a multichannel acousmatic installation  with sounds recorded in Antarctica.
