Recorded live in the studios at Jack Straw Productions, this hour-long program featuring new music and sound art made by Pacific Northwest artists. Sonarchy is broadcast every Sunday night from midnight to 1am on KEXP 90.3-FM in Seattle and live on the web at KEXP.org. Sonarchy is now into its 17th year, and thanks to KEXP's inspired use of technology, each new show can be heard in its entirety for two weeks following the broadcast in several streaming audio formats. Doug Haire is the producer and mixes these shows live.
