Experimental Half-Hour

Eva Aguila and Brock Fansler are the creative producers of Experimental Half-Hour. The public access television show started in Portland, Oregon in August of 2010 as a platform to engage and broadcast local and international avant-garde musicians and experimental performance artists. The half-hour episodes provide a record of the contemporary performing arts and video culture. Conceptual collaboration is stimulated by access to a broad range of new and old technologies ranging from live video broadcasting to glitch-based homemade video effects “stomp” boxes. Experimental Half-Hour challenges the idea of television and creates a platform for artists to channel their ideas that are sometimes hard to do on its own.

Since moving the show to Coaxial in 2015 it has become more self-reliant due to the lack of public resources available. Before moving to Coaxial a mobile studio was built to continue the show. Since its inception Experimental Half-Hour has produced over 80 episodes and is documented to HD video and broadcast live on the internet.

Experimental Half-Hour has screened and curated works at Time Based Art Festival, Portland, OR; Gaite-Lyrique Gallery, Paris, France; Network Awesome, Berlin, DE; Crack Festival, Rome, Italy; ŠKVER!, Mali Lošinj, Croatia; Nova Doba Festival, Belgrade, Serbia; 433rd Birthday of the City of Karlovac; Karlovac, Croatia; Slobodni Festival 6; Mursko Središće, Croatia; Issue Project Room, New York, NY;  Dublab, Los Angeles, CA; and Ghosting TV, Los Angeles, CA
