In January Artangel and BBC Radio 4 launched a new platform 'Open Air', for artists working in any media to come forward with ground-breaking site-specific projects to transform the UK's cultural landscape.
Christian Marclay and four other artists have produced short new pieces that respond to a particular moment in the morning radio schedule and re-interpret how broadcast space might be thought about and listened to. Commissioned by Artangel and produced by Somethin' Else exclusively for BBC Radio 4, these playful and surprising audio interventions will be broadcast each weekday morning at 9.02 am.
Christian Marclay's commission will be broadcast on Monday 25 March 2013 at 9.02am, between the end of BBC Radio 4's 'Today' and the following programme.
An omnibus edition of all five pieces and interviews with the artists discussing their involvement will be broadcast at 11am on Saturday 30 March 2013.
