We had the good fortune of connecting with Radio Free Clear Light and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Radio Free Clear Light, what’s your definition for success?
It is very simple. Success is creating with total commitment. It is leaving aside all fears, thoughts, and judgements- and being in the moment, letting the process flow without conditions. Success is making space for the unexpected.

Success is doing something creative everyday- whether that takes the shape of artwork or how we walk down the street.

Sucess is remembering the absolute beauty and preciousness of each moment. If we can remember that even once a day- that’s success.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
We are a creative entity composed of two core individuals; Juan Carlos Mendizabal and Lydia Harari. We go by the name Radio Free Clear Light and work in multiple disciplines: music, visual art, video. and writing.

Drawing on 20th-century avant-garde methods, RFCL applies a process-oriented approach to all our creative work, relying heavily on collaboration and technology as an integral part of any process we adopt.

We are devoted to exploring the subjective, participatory dimensions of art, music, and literature. Our tools include the open-ended use of digital technology, perceiving the extraordinary in “ordinary” environments, and experimenting with spontaneous, improvisational, emergent creativity.

Every piece or project is treated as an experiment, or a game, with rules of play established at the onset. In this way attention is reserved for the moment of creation rather than directed toward a final desired outcome. Under these conditions form outweighs content and limitations spark micro-creativity.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
For the music, it would be John Cage.

For the early comic work we did, it would have to be Dave McKean.

For the visual artwork, it would be Robert Rauschenberg.

For the approach, it would be Terence McKenna, Robert Anton Wilson, and Gurdjieff.

Thank you all!
