The festival’s website has a well organised archive which offers access to the websites of past festivals from 2006 until the present, all the Programme books from 2004 onwards, and the section Borealis in Videos and Sound which holds a selection of performances from each festival; there is also a Borealis Vimeo channel with over 75 videos and clips showing some of the experimental music and sound art performances.

    Radiophrenia is a temporary art radio station which aims to promote the medium of radio as an art form and to encourage experimental approaches to making radio that are not catered for by mainstream stations. Broadcasting live from Glasgow’s Centre for Contemporary Arts, the station’s broadcast schedule includes live shows, pre-recorded features and a series of specially commissioned ‘live-to-air’ performances. The majority of the programmes are made up of selections submitted to an annual international open call for sound and radio works. Examples of the wide range of broadcasts in previous years can be heard via Radiophrenia 2015, Radiophrenia 2016 and Radiophrenia 2017; Radiophrenia 2019, which will take place in May 2019, is now open for submissions. There is also Broader Casting, a short video which documents the creative process of community groups who are usually excluded from radio, making sound pieces for the festival.

Gems include The New Orleans Jazz Interviews (1949), the England and Wales folk songs (1951-1958), blues artist Big Bill Broonzy, Bessie Jones, and Caribbean 1962, just when the British West Indies were on the verge of independence. There are also three YouTube channels: The Alan Lomax Archive, which offers video clips from Lomax’s “American Patchwork” fieldwork (1978-1983), thus far including Mississippi Delta and Hill Country, Appalachia, New Orleans, Cajun Louisiana, Johns Island, SC; The Global Jukebox Channel with 600 recorded language examples collected by Lomax for Parlametrics, his study of speaking style, and the Cultural Equity Channel set up to provide Grenadians at home and in the Diaspora with an interactive online resource for Grenadian folkways and an outlet for cultural feedback.
