Video killed the radio star...but at the turn of the 20th Century radio had its popgun aimed at screen and stage production. As a new medium developed for communicating observations, it could also broadcast arts activity to a world stage; meaning artists could reach out to engage with new audiences, rather than relying on audiences reaching out to them by turning up, buying tickets, etc..German Moving Image artist Walter Ruttmann was the first to really experiment with this, creating a soundscape for broadcast before the parameters of a creative use for radio had been defined.
