February, 22nd 2019 at 6PM a full orchestra composed of 42 radios and 4 musicians, did play a symphony dedicated to the San Donato district in Firenze. A full scale radio happening to be listened to live and to experience first hand.

 

Composer Jason Cady created for Radio Papesse a new radio performance: forty-two radios and four musicians did interact with the sounds form the San Donato/Novoli area, bringing front and center acoustic memories and sounds form a rapidly changing neighbourhood.

Radio Symphony Orchestra brought ideas of radio listening together with the harmonies sprung from a collectivity.
