Artists Felicity Ford, Kayla Bell and Claudia Figueiredo are teaming up this
summer to bring you The Fantastical Reality Radio Show in association with
Mundane Appreciation. The radio show has been commissioned by Brighton¹s
RadioReverb 97.2FM and will feature at the Sonic Arts Network EXPO 4 ­ 6
July 2008. The Fantastical Reality Radio Show will be broadcast on
RadioReverb 97.2FM (or listen online at http://www.radioreverb.com) and will
offer and fresh and celebratory view of everyday sounds.
3pm every Friday for five weeks:

Show1  27.06.08
Show2  04.07.08
Show3  11.07.08
Show4   18.07.08
Show5   25.07.08

The Fantastical Reality Radio Show aims to draw listeners into an
entertaining exploration of ordinary audio. Ranging from a Top Annoying
Domestic Noise Chart to games like Imitating household noises using just the
voice, the radio show will excavate immediate situations for audio intrigue.
Playfully collapsing the borders between what is normally considered to make
Œboring¹ or Œinteresting¹ listening, The Fantastical Reality Radio Show is
intentionally affirmative and builds on the artists¹ former experience of
working on participatory projects.
Listeners will be able to submit their views, audio clips, images and
opinions at www.fantasticalreality.com . At the EXPO, Mundane Appreciation
will be out in full force with roving investigators, an interviewing desk
and a Game Show area where visitors will be able to join in and become a
part of the show.

Felicity Ford is doing a PhD on The Domestic Soundscape and the presentation
of everyday sounds to audiences. Mundane Appreciation, founded by Figueiredo
and Bell in February 2007, is an agency devoted to promoting and exploring
the processes of day-to-day life.
Having gathered recent professional experience showcasing their individual
projects at events like The Battersea Affordable Art Fair (Mundane
Appreciation) and The UK Stitch¹n¹Bitch Day (The Missability Radio Show)
these artists are keen to see what happens when they match their skills and
current fascination with everyday reality and interactive projects.
