“Nine Nine” by Mel Woods

Thousands of Vancouver commuters ride the 99 B-Line bus route every day. But do you ever really listen to the sounds of the 99? Or are you constantly plugged in to your music, podcast, conversation or phone call? This piece is an uninterrupted audio experience of riding the 99 B-Line from UBC to Commercial-Broadway, as recorded from the very far back right-hand seat. Everything’s there, from waiting in the rain to the beeps of the compass cards to the driver coming over the intercom to remind people to step away from the doors. Think of it as an audio love-letter to public transit and the 99 — the bus we all love to hate.

We Were Mothers” by Alex de Boer

Born in 1919, my grandmother recalls much of her life not as a person, but as a mother. As she approaches her 99th birthday I celebrate my 29th. In this short sound piece, I ask my grandma what she might be doing with her life if she were my age, in today’s world. Drawing from a mix of interviews, music and ambient tape, this piece explores how gendered oppression does not always equate to feminism and how feminism is more than a word.

pls. leave a message after the tone” by Eleanor Wearing 

Since its invention in the 1970s, voicemail has gone through a broad fluctuation in popularity. What was perhaps once seen as a convenient and time-saving function of the telephone is now massively regarded as an annoying and cumbersome way to get a message to someone. This is likely due in-part to the rise of text messaging as many people’s primary method of communication. But what have we lost in this shift? Is there any value to having small recorded pockets of someone’s voice, regardless of whether the message sent is inane or important?  This piece is a collection of sounds and voicemails from the CiTR Radio and Discorder Magazine main office line, from 2016-2018.
