Radio Experiments: Aesthetic, Structure, Genre


In the structure of radio experiments, the pattern is present and not every sound composition composed in any way fits into this pattern and is artistically valuable as well as it is not necessarily experimental radio drama or avant-grade music. The common features and structural aspects are the base of the for the main aim of this article, which is to describe the nature of radio experiments, establish their genre pattern in four aspects (stylistic, pragmatic, structural and cognitive) and to define the ruling principles of this form. The chosen research methods include literary analysis and criticism as well as some elements of structural analysis. The hypothesis of this article is the radio experiment as an autonomic radio genre, even though it is a very complex and internally diverse form. This article describes the matters of structure, aesthetics and non-aesthetics in the field of radio experiment with the examples from Polish Radio Experimental Studio and others.
