MA Radio Production Seminar, Bournemouth Media School, 12 Feb 2007: Old audiences, new producers

In a time of hypermediacy, in which forms and genres are in flux, and experiments can happen, it's worth considering, what is radio, what is sound, what is art, and what is / might be the intersection? What happens when you hand your schedule over to the wisdom of the crowd? What are the people we used to call the audience now making and doing? What is the difference between amateur and professional? Here are some links to get you thinking...

Our last session is on Monday 26th, and it would be great to know what things you'd like to know how to do. Post a comment below for suggestions :)

This just enhances that the future.. or rather say the present holds for us (as former listners) more choice, i.e. content on demand; more personalisation; more interactivity; enhance mobility i.e. everything is happening on the move. At last the viewer really influences what broadcasters
output; creating niche content; listeners become creators i.e.: consumers become producers. Interesting :-)
