Ole Frahm, Torsten Michaelsen
The free radio group LIGNA consists of the media theorists and radio artists Ole Frahm, Michael Hüners and Torsten Michelsen, working in the broadcast station Freies Sender Kombinat, a free, non-commercial, local radio station in Hamburg. Broadcast of LIGNAS Music Box started in 1995; they transformed different spaces by seting up sound installations.
Since 1999 LIGNA examins the meaning of dispersion in and of radio, relating to forgotten or isolated utilizations of this medium to develop new practices. LIGNA has put on performative radio plays, in which the broadcast on site influences the process. Since 2002 LIGNA is developing concepts of how radio can intervene in public and often controlled spaces, so that their public reappears as uncontrollable situation.
