neuroTransmitter (Angel Nevarez and Valerie Tevere) was co-founded in 2001 as a project whose work fuses conceptual practices with transmission, sound production, and mobile broadcast design. Through the combination of media forms and sound performance, their work re-articulates radio in multiple environments and contexts — public, exhibition, over the airwaves — considering new possibilities for the broadcast spectrum as public space. neuroTransmitter's public performances connect FM radio technology and the body — negotiating, occupying, and sonically mapping the invisible and physical spaces of the city. As radio-sonic installation, further work references the politics, history, and technology of the medium.
neuroTransmitter have created visual works, performed, and broadcasted live on local bandwidths and in public spaces and galleries internationally, including: viafarini, Milan, Italy (2006); The Anna Akhmatova Museum, St. Petersburg, Russia (2006); Smack Mellon Studios, NY (2006); Govett Brewster Museum, New Plymouth, NZ (2005); Centre d'Art Passerelle, Brest, France (2005); Apex Art C.P., NY (2005); Set & Drift , LMCC, NY (2005); The New Museum, NY (2005); Eyebeam, NY (2005); Museu da Imagem e do Som, Sao Paulo, Brazil (2004); Drawing Center, NY (2004); Festival Garage , Straslund, Germany (2004); Mutter Museum, Philadelphia (2004); Brewster 2003, NY; and Museo del Barrio, NY (2002); among others. neuroTransmitter have lectured and performed at the Vera List Center for Art and Politics at the New School; the Radio Lab at Bauhaus University in Weimar, Germany; the Musterraum, Munich, Germany; and NIFCA, Helsinki, Finland.
