Listen as The Covering International Festival class of Columbia College Chicago talk about their music preview stories in anticipation for the Iceland Airwaves Music Festival 2012 during a live broadcast, which aired on WCRX 88.1 FM on October 13th, 2012.
The Iceland Airwaves Music Festival is an event that brings artists from around the world to grace the stages of venues in Reykjavík, Iceland. Here are some artists from the lineup this year that we included in our on-air preview (with links to our interviews and reviews from the fest): Apparat Organ Quartet, DIIV, Endless Dark, EXITMUSIC, FM Belfast, Futuregrapher, Intro Beats, Low Roar, Of Monsters and Men, Ólafur Arnalds, and Phantogram. We also featured Agent Fresco, Biggi Hilmars, Nóra, and Nolo in our preview.
Under the guidance of Columbia College professor Althea Legaspi, 10 students were given the opportunity to interview, report, and review musicians right from the heart of the festival. The trip may be over, but a full length audio documentary about the classes experience is being produced as we speak. STAY TUNED!
