JULY 02 ROADSIDERADIO (radioroads)
Concept and sketch: real time sound "tracks" accompany radioroads imagery-from pavement edge outward to infinity-and provide year round on call sound service to motorist QUADFM radios. Recalling a Spike Jones-style mid-1940s version of "Celery Stalks along the High-WAY as a 78 RPM record played on request over WJBC, Normal-Bloomington, Illinois which I listened to w/my Golden Throat portable (pic).
W/1999, 2000 update: any current may be accessed.
Sounds also may be pre-programmed through a telephone calling cue before and for the duration of a drive --referenced to the Roadside Radio menu and ETA at a mile marker-- and be transmitted to your QUADFM radio.
Borrowed hardware, including a solar panel and dish are to be positioned on the car roof with plastic-coated magnets, and combined with this keyboard, are to be used to uplink a driver's/passenger's instructions.
