In collaboration with Transistor Media, RIDM will premiere the latest Kino-radio creations!

Spearheaded by Transistor, Kino-radio is a project inspired by the global Kino film movement to promote the creation, production, and distribution of digital audio works across the Outaouais region.

This year, five teams participated in Kino-radio, each made up of three professional artists from various artistic disciplines. Candidates met in Gatineau’s Old Aylmer neighbourhood between October 14 and 16. In 48 hours, these trios were tasked with creating an original sound piece of less than 10 minutes, all within a set theme.

Get caught up in the excitement of this public listening session and meet some creators of this friendly but grueling competition.
