60 SEC RADIO 2022


60 Second radio has over the years shared more than 1 100 radio works produced by artists from fifty countries and working in thirty languages. It is both an international radio art competition and broadcast platform.

The works produced are each year distributed to some fifty FM, Dab, Dab + and web radios in the Americas, Europe, Oceania and elsewhere, as weel as in many radio ans audio festivals and public events.


I have recorded the sound of a plastic used as a packaging material for vegetables and fruits. My intention has been to highlight the sound potential of material found and classified as waste.

In this work, plastic waste begins to identify its intangible material in 60 seconds. Unlike physical matter, its decomposition process is not a problem but an opportunity.

when it reaches some sort of aesthetic sound value, has the plastic packaging ceased to be just rubbish? This experiment revolves around these reflections, but it can also be forgotten and listened to without knowledge of it.

Just another tomato pack – recorded and manipulated sound of plastic pack, 60 second
