The radiophonic feature Radio Metamix, a 2007 collaboration between Lloyd Barrett, Lucas Darklord, Buttress O’Kneel, Rik Rue and Shannon O’Neill, was broadcast on Sunday February 26, 2012 on FBi Radio’s Ears Have Ears.
This edition of Eleveneleven features a myriad of voices. Different voices with different perspectives, some familiar, some strange. Actually mostly strange, or estranged. We bring these outsiders inside for a delightful and unpredictable conversation.

Sydney Directors: Jennifer Teo & Shannon O’Neill
Thoughts Flash comprises two hallucinatory tracks from Wake Up and Listen’s unreleased debut album. Recorded in the late 1990s, the album featured a number of studio recordings, as well as edited excerpts from WUAL’s long-running radio show on 2MBS-FM. The technique of condensing extended radio improvisations into relatively short pieces, as on these two tracks, suggested a fruitful direction for the duo, however Bertram and O’Neill spent the following years focusing on other projects, with WUAL continuing primarily as a live act (their 2001 mini-album Mustard Keanu notwithstanding). WUAL’s recorded archives are nevertheless extensive, and it is likely that more material will be published on their website as well as on future Alias Frequencies releases.
Shannon O’Neill is an artist, academic and curator who works across music, radio, Internet, performance, text, video and installation. Shannon works as a lecturer in Media Arts at the University of Technology, Sydney and is currently completing a PhD in music at the University of Wollongong.
He has been a director of the Electrofringe festival (2001-02), the Disorientation series (2003), and the Sydney Liquid Architecture festival (2005-07) and is the founder of Alias Frequencies, an organisation that promotes and publishes music and media art.
He contributed a chapter to the new book Experimental Music: Audio Explorations in Australia.
