Radioscape is a parallel sound world in the centre of a city based on the spatial behaviour of electromagnetic waves. Fifteen transmitters, each broadcasting their own sub-composition, are situated in an area of approximately one square kilometer. The visitor explores the meta-composition of each other overlapping sound fields with a custom developed receiver. Compelling combinations and oppositions arise depending on the chosen route. A new physically perceivable space reveals itself and intersects the existing reality.

Radioscape is an immersive environment that redefines the radio medium, establishing a new bodily relationship to the medium and adding a new layer to a region of a city. Fifteen custom developed radio transmitters are distributed over a part of a city. Each transmitter is transmitting one layer of a 'meta-composition'. The audience uses a custom developed receiver that is able to mix the (received) signals from the individual transmitters and receive multiple signals simultaneously.

The participants explore and interact with the composition by navigating through the urban environment. By navigating the city the audience generates their own sonic order, combinations and timing of the composition. By interacting with the environment the visitors become 'inhabitants' of the organized transmitted signals. The visitors reorganize the area and assign new meanings to places.
