The multi-parted work “Firedrake“ examines attempts of the Chinese The multi-part work „Firedrake“ examines attempts by the Chinese government to censor foreign shortwave radio stations, known as jamming, and methods of circumventing this interference by manipulating radios. By constantly playing an hour-long piece of Chinese folk music entitled “Firedrake“, radio stations such as Voice of America, Radio Free Asia and BBC World Service are muted by the Chinese authorities. The DIY solution to bypassing Chinese jamming is to use modified radios outfitted with anti-jamming antennas. The materials needed to build these antennas pose the starting point for the acoustic improvisation featured in the video. Additionally, a fictional radio program can be heard that includes snippets of an interview, multiple recordings of shortwave radio stations and the “Firedrake” broadcast.
