What is it?
The idea is simple. Want to do radio? So do not wait much longer. Open an WEB radio account in the Dissonant Project and exercise the right to communicate, to speak, to express yourself. Individuals, groups, communities and social organizations can use the internet as a space of free expression. There is no need to be technical. We are not. Open an account at the site and begin transmitting.
Make good use. Be free.
In music, dissonance happens when the quality of the sounds seem unstable. It is not necessarily something unpleasant or annoying, since all music composed in a tonal basis incorporates a degree of dissonance. A dissonance is actually a tool that improves, supports and develops creativity. It is a noise that values harmony. The note that gives a color to the chords. Some music styles consider dissonance vile and make all efforts to eliminate it. Others, find it an attractive part of the timbre and thus seek to create tools to intensify its light roughness. To be dissonant is to be out of bar and still build a melody.
The first inspiration came from the radiolivre.org (a web site of web radio). In 2006, the “Ralacoco's” program Underground Ways was heard on the web by more than 80 listeners, and had an approximate average of 5 to 10 people per day. Afterwards, the radiolivre.org server needed to be improved. Later the same year, another member of dissonant traveled to the Meeting of Free Radio in Recife. The idea was to discuss how technology could be a strategy for social transformation for Communication. As a result, came the proposal of joining efforts, spreading more servers of web Radio in (throughout) universities. These two ideas/projects were joined to the activities of Ralacoco (a free radio of University of Brasilia). It began, then, playing a somewhat more dissonant note to the point of becoming a project, a speech, a way of making libertarian communication.
By using the structure of the Dissonant Project, groups or persons interested agree follow these responsibilities:
Bill & Ted
The Dissonant Project has two faithful squires as servers: Bill S. Preston and Theodore Logan. The Bill and Ted. The Bill, installed in the studio of Ralacoco serves to open several points of assembly and supply the Radiolivre server of Campinas is out of air (down). The Ted, installed in the Multiuso II building, can be used (serves as) for transmission of workshops, tests, and, in the future, experimental transmissions of video (which can be performed using an webcam).
The Dissonant Project is based on the final project of graduation in Social Communication, enabling in Journalism, at the University of Brasilia (UnB), made by the students Leyberson Pedrosa and Pedro Matos Archangel.
We appreciate everyone who helped us. Collectively, we made it. Otherwise, we wouldn’t be here. And when we won´t be here, the Dissonant Project is free to continue with strong and autonomous with new dissonant groups and persons. Poneyley.
