CONSTELLATIONS is an audio art project that illuminates audio art from a community of international artists craving and making experimental work that takes risks and learns from other mediums. Created by audio artists Jess Shane and Michelle Macklem, Constellations curates and solicits audio art pieces from artists whose work floats beyond the borders of radio and podcasting. The pieces we air demand a deep listening experience, encouraging listeners to expand their conception of narrative, musicality and attention.
We release short and strange audio pieces from a wide range of audio makers and artists, bi-weekly and on Fridays.
You can subscribe to CONSTELLATIONS on itunes, or search for it on your favourite podcast app.

"Something wonderful happens to you and you instantly look back over your life and see it as a series of fortunate events stretching off into the distance like mountain peaks. Something terrible happens and your life becomes a litany of woe. The present re-arranges the past. We never tell the story whole because life isn't a story; it's a whole milky walk of events we are forever picking out constellations from it to fit who and where we are."
While Constellations represents an international community of audio artists, we are grateful to live and work as guests in Toronto, in the 'Dish With One Spoon Territory’, on the ancestral and traditional territories of the Anishinaabe, the Haudenosaunee, the Huron-Wendat First Nations, and the Mississaguas of the New Credit First Nations.
