In The Radio Show, Kyle Abraham delves into identity and personal history, creating an abstract narrative around the loss of communication. He investigates the effects of the abrupt discontinuation of a radio station on a community and the lingering impact of Alzheimer’s and aphasia on a family. The score mixes classic soul and hip-hop recordings with contemporary classical compositions by Ryoji Ikeda and Alva Noto.
