Typography is a visual medium. What happens if you translate a visual medium to an audio-format? Does it bring new perspectives again for visually orientated people? Is it possible at all to transform typography, the subject itself and related areas, to a non-visual medium? What are the consequences?
Together with Donald Beekman & Liza Enebeis, we set up the radio channel Typeradio in 2004 to explore these thoughts. The radio channel might sometimes broadcast live, locally through a FM-frequency, and world-wide through in internet-stream. However, the archive is available for podcasting, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. More than 400 epidoses, all for free. Next to these radio broadcasts – mostly interviews – Typeradio initiates Dark-talk (series of design lectures in total darkness), presents surprising live shows on stage with dazzling guests, and initiates educational activities.
