At a radio station called The Listener’s Voice, freedom of speech is supposed to be guaranteed by a computerized moderator taking listeners’ calls. Yet, the moderator was not only programmed for an unplanned architecture of discourse that sprawls into environments of potential violence, ambiguous sexuality, and rowdy beauty, but also to make identifying data anonymous. Double-sided, invisible, and acoustic masks are at work. Cyber-radio comes into conflict with human memory.
