neuro Transmitter was co-founded in 2001 by Angel Nevarez and Valerie Tevere as a collaborative whose work fuses conceptual practices with transmission, sound production, and mobile broadcast system design. At different points Nevarez and Tevere each studied at the University of California, San Diego and at the Whitney Museum, Independent Study Program; Tevere also holds an MFA from California Institute of the Arts. Through a combination of media forms and sound performance, their work re-articulates radio in multiple environments and contexts, considering new possibilities for the broadcast spectrum as public space. neuroTransmitter’s public performances connect FM radio technology and the body - negotiating, occupying, and sonically mapping the invisible and physical spaces of the city. As radio-sonic installation, further work references the politics, history, and technology of the medium.

The FM Ferry Experiment

The FM Ferry Experiment is a mobile radio project to be held on the Staten Island Ferry during the spring of 2007. With the collaboration of the Department of Transportation and WSIA-FM, this project will transform the ferry into a floating radio station. Experimental sound performances and radio modulations by neuroTransmitter, WSIA DJs and invited collaborators will be performed on the ferry, and will be transmitted to NYC radio listeners via WSIA-FM. Performances and programming will explore stories of the sea, spaces of transit, spaces in-between, maritime transportation, the history and geography of the NYC waterfronts and waterways, commuter stories and other radio histories.
