Following Deleuze and Guattari’s strain of rhizomatic thought, we would like to see how electronic music’s underground culture is becoming more and more connected in the age of mass digitalisation. Through the internet, electronic music creates information flows, activism channels and local spaces of resilience. How do we harness this horizontality, what are the obstacles ahead?
The Word Radio is an online community radio run by The Word from studios located in Brussels, in what used to be the neighbourhood's last standing farm. Broadcasting 24/7, with a mix of fortnightly, monthly and seasonal shows, the radio acts as a rallying space for Belgium’s often-overlooked underground talent, a platform that unites the country’s disparate scenes under one same banner.
Expect anything from talkshows to DJ sets and live performances from our more than 100 monthly residents - all Belgian or based in Belgium - as well as the odd guest or two thrown in for good measure.
