A "workshop for radiophonic creation", the Atelier de creation radiophonique (ACR) has been broadcast as a weekly program on Radio France since 1969. For over thirty years, under the Directorship of Rene Farabet, this pioneering space has been dedicated to the exploration of the medium. Proposed as a creative construction site, this "event-space" (born of May 68) aimed not to produce works (oeuvres) but sketches - an itinerary proposing a new kind of radio listening experience. As one of radio's key sites for invention and research (internationally) it has sounded out an alternative imaginary for radio, refusing categorisation, opening forms, bridging past to future.
