Radia Show 389 | Abandon Reason Ep1


This Radia show has been produced by Curious Broadcast in collaboration with the South Dublin Arts Centre of Dublino. 

Abandon Reason is an archive of recordings made in the highly reverberant (and unlit) space of a disused underground car park in Galway, Ireland. The recordings are mostly musical improvisations utilising a wide variety of instruments and voices, and very often objects (as well as the walls and fixtures) found in the car park itself.

Abandon Reason is an 8-part series of half-hour episodes broadcast fortnightly on Curious Broadcast. It is presented by Declan Kelly and, alongside the radio programme, there is a blog on which can be found more information about the contributors to the show as well as photographs and videos of the space.
