HEED FM was originally Broadcast 24Hrs A Day October 22 – November 18 2016
HEED FM was a recent commissioned work of art by artist Garrett Phelan. It was a 28-day anonymous sound broadcast portrait created through conversations with individuals and groups from all backgrounds aged 18–25 inhabiting Dublin. HEED FM took the form of an independent, temporary licensed FM radio station.
The month-long FM radio and web broadcast was a constant stream of conversation without music, advertisements, news, presenters, weather, time or jingles. It presented recordings made over an eight-month period with a generation of young people whose opinions and beliefs are rarely heard in the public domain and who lack national institutional advocacy on their behalf. HEED FM shunned pre-conceptions and de-sensationalized this generation without judgment, giving time and voice to the ambitions, aspirations and passions of those that took part.
The station ran for 24 hours, 7 days a week over a 28-day period.
HEED FM was broadcast on 94.3 (Greater Dublin Area only) DAB/DAB+ (Dublin and Cork only) www.heedfm.com (online live stream) from 22nd October–18th November 2016
HEED FM was an Open Call National Project in ART: 2016: The Arts Council’s programme as part of Ireland 2016.
HEED FM has since developed into HEED OFFICE. For further information please go to www.heedoffice.com
