Ou•tré (uˈtreɪ) adj. Scrambling radio art/art of radio, social imaginary significations, collective fictional spaces, post-economic music, queer diasporas ... A relational outburst of Kost3n Kop3r.
Turn up in the studio, take your jacket off, stutter, jump onto billowing ledges, rip up diary pages, scrape the shortwave dial, unwind blank cassettes, ring the wrong number ... leave abruptly ... close the door gently.
For two fleeting hours every second Sunday, it’s all right to remain a stranger.
