Critical Transmissions is a collaboration between dance and violin (Christopher Tignor), AM radios, and their live software enabled re-imaginings. Reflecting on a culture of fear, the artists exhibit the desire to shed the layers of anxiety using talk radio, the idea of satellite transmissions, and the filtering/processing of physical and auditory information to communicate.
