Radio Garden: Tune into more than 8,000 radio stations around the world

April 30, 2017

An app developed by the Dutch Institute for Sound and Vision allows you to explore more than 8,000 radio stations around the world.

A globe goes round and round. You can hear a white noise made by a radio antenna trying to find a station. The map keeps turning and you can interact with it, rotate it, zoom in or out. Suddenly, small green dots appear to indicate that more than 8,000 radio stations can be tuned and free of charge on all continents.

 

This is Radio Garden, an interactive project developed by the Dutch Institute for Sound and Vision in cooperation with six universities in Germany, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and Denmark.

 

You could say that it is traveling the world in real time because you can be in Zambia, Russia, Mexico and Australia in minutes.

 

This digital installation is part of a research called Transnational Radio Meetings, which seeks to explore how radio crosses the linguistic and geographical barriers.

 

In this digitized era, the market, of course, offers a high range of radio and broadcast applications in many countries but includes advertising and not all are free.



Radio.Garden is an interactive web page and not an application, therefore there is nothing to download, neither commercial nor advertising, anyone can access only with the link.

Radio is resistant to forgetting, so it remains a very influential medium, and projects like this simplify the process of listening to these media.

 



Apart from offering live radio stations, it also offers three more sections: History, Jingles, and Stories.

 

In History, you can hear stories and more important stories of the history of each country. In Jingles popular songs are heard and you can hear the most sticky wedges of the world's broadcasters. And in Stories, you can hear stories of listeners related to this medium.
