Radio Free Scunthorpe

391 present a meditation on the theme of amateur radio.

By parodying mass media and exaggerating certain formal aspects inherent in our contemporary society, we have created several practically identical works, upon which thoughts that have apparently just been developed are manifested: notes are made and then crossed out again, ‘mistakes’ are repeated.
Our works focus on the inability of communication which is used to visualise reality, the attempt of dialogue, the dissonance between form and content and the dysfunctions of language. In short, the lack of clear references are key elements in the music.
