  • different time different place different pitch: By November It Was Already Different - Dani Gal & Achim Lengerer

    6th November 2017 @ 1:00 am - 2:00 am

    A conversation about Opposition and the Church in the last days of the German
    Democratic Republic. With Marianne Birthler and Rocco Pagel.

    A series of radio programs By Dani Gal and Achim Lengerer. Originally commissioned by Documenta 14.

    The radio is an acousmatic instrument. Listeners do not see the origin of the sound,
    their experience is shaped both by the their own interpretation, and the manipulation
    of the producer in a political system.

    Our programs work on the space between documentary and Musique concrète.
    Each show focuses on political events that are connected to acoustic events. This
    creates an acousmatic documentary where the programs become sound-objects.
    The programs response to the 'image saturated society' discourse, by asking what is
    the function of sound as a document in times of live video feeds that can be broadcast
    by anyone.

    Dani Gal (born 1975, Jerusalem) lives and works in Berlin. He studied at the Bezalel
    Academy for Art and Design in Jerusalem; the Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende
    Künste Städelschule in Frankfurt; and the Cooper Union in New York. His flms and
    works have been shown widely, including: Documenta 14, 54th Venice Biennale
    (2011), The Istanbul Biennale (2011), The New Museum New York (2012),
    Kunsthalle St. Gallen Swizerland (2013), The Jewish museum New York (2014),
    Berlinale Forum Expanded (2014), Kunsthaus Zurich (2015) Kunsthalle Wien (2015)
    And more.

    Achim Lengerer works on political questions of speech and language that he
    thematizes in performances, radio plays or spatializes within installations and
    publications. Lengerer founded different collaborative projects such as freitagsküche
    in Frankfurt a. M. and voiceoverhead, with Dani Gal. Since 2009 Lengerer runs the
    Berlin based showroom and publishing house Scriptings. Different Artists are invited
    – all of which are working with the formats of script and text within their processes of
    production. Lengerer is currently working on his Ph.D. at Goldsmiths, University of
    London, UK, on the format of the rehearsal as an actual format for socio-political
    negotiations.

  • Commence Exuding The Opaque Vapour - Barry Burns

    6th November 2017 @ 2:00 am - 7:00 am

    For the last five years I have taken a sample from every video I watch on my laptop. As a tip of the hat to William Burroughs and Robert Anton Wilson I take the sample from the 23rd minute. Each sample is arranged and layered chronologically, constructing an aleatory narrative, a random DJ mix of dialogue, music and foley, a self portrait of viewing habits and memory. VHS rips merge with Blu Ray restorations, youtube binges mingle with abandoned box sets.

    Barry Burns is not the bloke out of Mogwai, its a different, unsuccessful one. He is the co-manager of Radiophrenia and has used his immense power to give himself the highly coveted 5am slot.

  • 03222016-10 - Jeff Kolar & jonCates

    6th November 2017 @ 7:45 am - 8:00 am

    We are interested in creating new electromagnetic infrastructures and proposing narratives or experiences that can be lived in these ephemeral sonic spaces. Our performances utilize an array of electronic and analog instruments, as well as devices designed and fabricated by hand.The tracks on this page were originally produced for our installation and live performance at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago in March 2016. Using variations in speed, long durations, patience, and repetition, we built up musical and auditory foundations through tracks and technologies, slowly filling the museum with various soundscapes. While broadcasting across analog radio signals (via Radius) and digital transmissions (via NUMBERS.FM), we physically moved through the museum after setting up two stages on two floors to perform from.

    Press/Review: https://mcachicago.org/Stories/Blog/2017/06/03222016

    Jeff Kolar (b. Chicago, US) is a independent sound artist, radio producer, and curator. He is the Founder and Artistic Director of Radius, an experimental radio broadcast platform established in 2010. His work, described as "speaker-shredding" (Half Letter Press), "wonderfully strange" (John Corbett), and "characteristically curious" (Marc Weidenbaum), activates sound in unconventional, temporary, and ephemeral ways using appropriation and remix as a critical practice. His solo and collaborative projects, installations, and public performances often investigate the mundane sonic nuances of everyday electronic devices. He has performed and exhibited widely across the United States, and at international venues and festivals such as the New Museum (New York, US), The Kitchen (New York, US), Moogfest (Durham, US), CTM Festival for Adventurous Music (Berlin, DE), Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago (Chicago, US), Kino Šiška (Ljubljana, SL), Le Cube Centre de création numérique (Paris, FR), ORF RadioKulturhaus (Vienna, AT), LAK Festival of Nordic Sound Art (København, Denmark), among others.

  • The Chorus - Timber & Battery (Rohanne Udall & Paul Hughes)

    6th November 2017 @ 8:00 am - 8:30 am

    A 30-minute soundscape, The Chorus is a reconstruction of a dawn chorus - in which
    each of the birds' warbles, squawks and whistles has been replaced with a human's
    poor mimicry. Following the precise timings of the original field recording, The
    Chorus critiques our understanding of the 'natural' world: some sounds recognizably
    belong to a clichéd image of authentic rural life; others emerge as perplexing gurgles
    and hums. The apparent simplicity of the proposition reveals surprising complexity;
    the radio becomes a platform to expose the limits of the voice, mouth and throat as
    they contort to achieve increasingly ambitious substitutions.

    Timber & Battery’s playful work considers meaning and meaninglessness through
    oblique gestures. The collaborative practice of Rohanne Udall (b. 1990) and Paul
    Hughes (b. 1991), it takes place across choreographic, performance and visual arts
    contexts. Trained in fine art and philosophy, our practice is a meeting point between
    disciplines; a persistent and fidgeting enquiry that continually questions itself and the
    contexts it finds itself within.
    Our work has recently been included at DISKURS festival in (Giessen, Germany,
    October 2017), SET.mefree international film selection (Venice and London,
    September 2017), and residencies at Hospitalfield Arts Arbroath and Nottingham
    Trent University's Summer Lodge.

  • different time different place different pitch: Distorted Tango - Dani Gal & Achim Lengerer

    6th November 2017 @ 10:00 am - 10:45 am

    How the Soviet Union spent more money on blocking radio stations from the West
    than on radio broadcasting itself and the creative methods they used to make
    unbearable noise. With Rimantas Pleikys.

    A series of radio programs By Dani Gal and Achim Lengerer. Originally commissioned by Documenta 14.

    The radio is an acousmatic instrument. Listeners do not see the origin of the sound,
    their experience is shaped both by the their own interpretation, and the manipulation

    creates an acousmatic documentary where the programs become sound-objects.
    The programs response to the 'image saturated society' discourse, by asking what is
    the function of sound as a document in times of live video feeds that can be broadcast

  • For the Half Listener - Matt Harding

    6th November 2017 @ 12:30 pm - 1:00 pm

    This is the first installment of an ongoing process to create a sound piece for those who are only half listening, born from the phenomenon of utilizing the radio as a 'background' content, perhaps the nature of the medium allows an audience to be at once present and absent, engaging then disengaged, an idle bystander.

    I do not wish to imply criticism more use the concept of half listening as a starting point as to how we might imagine and approach the half heard and also engage with and explore in a broader way concepts of the missing and not present.

    My name is Matt Harding, I am a composer and artist and have recently completed a sound art MA obtaining a distinction. Most recently I exhibited in Gavin Turk's 'Inside Out' show in the summer 2017. I regularly perform my own score to the silent film 'The Cabinet Of Dr Caligari' at various venues across the UK and London, I performed a re imagined shorter version with live foley at the 'Klingt Gut ' festival in Hamburg this year. I also wrote the Soundtrack to British movie 'High Tide' in 2015 and have released 5 albums on Moshi Moshi and Heavenly Records

     


  • AC Projects Residency Osmosis - live in the studio

    6th November 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
    the studio

    Osmosis is the alias of a collective of artists who will use the Creative Lab residency as a platform to examine the boundaries that can exist between the artist and audience, inhibiting the genuine exchange and diversity of shared knowledge. They will mobilise the Creative Lab as a truly fluid and transient platform for exchange of ideas, as an open workshop. Areas of the space will be allocated towards engaging people in different methods of sonic exploration - analogue electronics, rehabilitating and repurposing of defunct machinery, listening stations and creating visual imagery inspired by these investigations.

  • Bien que mon amour soit fou.. - Nod Akami

    6th November 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 2:15 pm

    Electroacoustic work, 2 stereo channels. Texts : collage from "L'Amour Fou" by André Breton, and from "Bien que mon amour soit fou" by Benoît Dalle, Yves Edel and Angel Fernandez.
    Voice : Maïté Pouleur
    Mastering : BB³
    From a poetic quote by an erotomaniac mental health patient in 1936 (from the eponymous book), « Bien que mon amour soit fou... » explores this kind of condition towards which love can lead. The composition interrogates the relation between the patient and her illness, through collages symbolizing an exploration of the unconscious that may lead to healing.

    Nod Akami is a French composer of electronic and electroacoustic music born in 1979, now living in Lille (Fr). Some pieces by Nod Akami were presented for the first time in 2017 at the Italian festival En Chair et en Son, and on the various artists compilation New Frontiers of Electronic Music on the Unexplained Sounds Group label. Bien que mon amour soit fou... was first presented on 19th august 2017 in Korea at the Yongin Poeun Art Gallery during New Music Day @Sonicscape.

     


  • Vowel Ensemble - Posset Associates

    6th November 2017 @ 2:15 pm - 2:30 pm

    Using Joan La Barbra’s Singing Alphabet from Sesame Street (c 1977) as inspiration I asked 10 vocal artists to contribute a reading or improvised vocal performance based on the letters A,E, I, O, U.

    I combined the readings/performances forming a continuous piece. Mixing was done in a single take, keeping the spirit of the reading/performance alive within the boundaries of any extra sound manipulation I added.

    Associates: Duncan Harrison, Mu Extraordinaire , Stuart Arnot, Sue FitzGerald, Ben Knight, Hannah Ellul, Andy Wild, Rachel Green, Joe Posset, Malory Maki

    Idea, writing & sound mixing: Joe Posset

    I’ve been working with Dictaphones and old tape recorders making slurred sounds for the last 10 years. Using a mixture of careful composition and reckless improvisation I’ve managed to put out over 30 tapes and CDrs and play solo and in wonderful collaborations up and down the UK. I’m a lucky man. More recently I’ve started using abstract vocal sounds and words to create Dada-esque poems.

  • Stoneypath - Andrew McCallum and Adam McCallum

    6th November 2017 @ 2:30 pm - 3:00 pm

    Stoneypath is a sonic exploration of the day-to-day work of the gardeners at ‘Little Sparta’, who tend/sustain the garden against the incessant encroachment of the moorland. Their fight against nature enacts the definitively human task of tending the ‘yin-and-yang’ of order-and-chaos, domesticity-and-wildness, apollo-and-dionysus, reason-and-madness. This sonic poem represents their struggle by generating a sound world which is forever changing, never comfortably settling into a single version of itself. Despite our best efforts
    time is still
    ultimately
    victorious

    ‘Stoneypath’ is a father-and-son collaboration between the widely published poet, Andrew McCallum. and the sonic artist Adam McCallum, who is currently studying for a Masters degree in Sound Design at Edinburgh University. Both hail from Biggar, in southern Scotland; a stone’s throw from Ian Hamilton Finlay’s garden, ‘Little Sparta’, to which their collaboration is a response.

  • Last night I dreamt Saint Augustine brushed the sleeve of my bomber - Canaan Balsam

    6th November 2017 @ 3:45 pm - 4:00 pm

    A work based on the interwoven memory of childhood insomnia and the radio. I wouldn’t be able to sleep and would tune into long wave radio stations, which would phase in and out of reception, swelling up and fading away in slow pulses of static. This is an attempt to recreate that sensation but in a heightened and more tensile and aggressive manner using repeated and manipulated wave samples. This is the first part of a hopefully wider work using the therapeutic deployment of drone and noise in order to explore a possible future system of audio –sensory inoculation against trauma.

    My name is Grant Campbell. I am a musician and sound artist from Edinburgh. I’m also involved in the group Optic Nerve.

  • Kino Pamięci - Piotr Tkacz

    6th November 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 4:30 pm

    A radio-play/sound collage about memories, its carriers, changes, imperfections and also about relationship between sound and image.

    "Kino Pamięci" is a 3-channel sound collage merging voices, field recordings, electronic and acoustic sounds. Something between a diary, a chronicle of personal stories more important than official history and a soundscape portrait of Sokołowsko. It'll also touch upon a subject of the significance of sound in film through use of various audio excerpts from movies as a commentary or counterpoint.

  • Grey Ghost - Sally Ann McIntyre

    6th November 2017 @ 4:30 pm - 5:00 pm

    Overall, it's drawing on the aesthetics of the earliest field recordings of birds - koch's wax cylinder, arthur allen's ivory billed woodpecker recordings, etc. but it's based on a NZ bird which is "lost" in the present time - which is perhaps extinct.

    The sound library of a citizen scientist who's spent a lot of time looking for it (and collected a total of 1:26 of audio over 40 years of searching!) is interspersed with recordings of musical interpretations of historic / archival notations used as scores - some from private letters, some published in ornithology journals - played on violin, piano, harpsichord and clavichord.

    Included are other birds dead or alive which would have been / are in its environment - the huia (exitinct, here on paper music box) and the NZ rock wren - endangered (whose call is so high pitched it's almost outside the range of human hearing - here the audible part itself sounds like radio static or electronic noise).

    Also some vlf recorded in the mountains, all played back through very unstable microcast transmitters and "flocks" of radios.

    Sally Ann McIntyre was born in Hobart, and currently resides in Dunedin. Her creative practice is highly responsive to place, and includes sound art, the creative use of radio, and the the use of field recordings, as well as a concurrent practice in poetry and associated forms of writing.

    A major platform for her artistic output since 2006 has been a hand-made narrowcast radio station named radio cegeste, a nomadic performance and recording project which broadcasts within a small radius to any locality on the frequency 104.5FM. Lo-fi, site-specific technological interventions into the soundscapes of various places and ecologies are often conceived as exploratory inter-species collaborations, for which she acts as curator and operator, destabilising the notion of one-to-many broadcast, and associated forms of control and authorship within the medium. Soundscapes recorded on site are layered back into the environment with historic field recordings on 78rpm and other media, problematising the immediacy of listening, and asking questions about its historicisation.

    radio cegeste has released material on the labels winds measure, Consumer Waste, and/Oar, Idealstate, Flaming Pines, and Gruenrekorder. Sally’s sound work also includes ongoing research into the materiality of recorded silence, the history of birdsong transcription, and the hauntology of extinction as a trace within sound archives, including the use of pre-electrical sonic inscription and playback mechanisms, such as gramophones, phonographic wax cylinders and music boxes, to bring extinct birdsong back to audibility. Projects have been exhibited in galleries and project spaces in Australia, New Zealand, the UK and the U.S.

    Her critical practice spans radio documentary, critical writing, and curatorial and organisational work. She has written for Flash Art International, Art Asia Pacific, and other print media, and since 2009 has been involved as an Australasian curator for the international Radia network, which is a curatorial platform for peer-to-peer experimental radio art, commissioning many new works from sound and radio artists in the region. Her interests include environmental history, post-humanism, the history of museums, ethno-ornithology, island ecologies, avian electomagnetic navigation, obsolete technologies, the poetics of erasure and the trace, the possiblity of locality within the globalised, and the cultural and historical situatedness of listening.

  • Frail Potentialities - Kari Robertson

    6th November 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 5:30 pm

    Frail Potentialities is a ‘hypertext monologue’ for radio. The work explores an unlikely and anachronistic relationship between the ideas of Simone Weil - activist, mystic and author living in the early 20th century, and the post-digital distribution of the contemporary subject.
    Weil was obsessed with breaking down her own subjectivity. As Chris Kraus puts it Weil was ‘arguing for an alien state, using subjectivity as a means to break out of time and space…’ The post-digital order breaks out of both chronological time and physical space but lays claim to a fragmented, impersonal commons of subjectivity. Through the figure of Weil this work explores the mystical, or sci-fi aspects of our contemporary selves.

    Kari Robertson (b. Edinburgh 1988) is a visual artist based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. She previously studied at GSA before serving for two years on the committee of Transmission Gallery. Kari works primarily in time-based media including sound, analogue film and digital video and animation. Through narrative and storytelling her works often explore sci-fi approaches to subjectivity. Characters act as means to un-think the sovereignty of our bodies, identities, or minds or as a way to access forms of radical empathy – what it might be to empathise beyond identity, similarity or equivalence.

    6th November 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 6:30 pm

    The Funnel is inspired by a visit to the Port Talbot steel works in Wales, various occult writings, the art of alchemy, European medieval and early renaissance music. Additional vocals by Milo Brennan.

  • Come to it as someone else - Stephan Barrett and Adam Kinsey

    6th November 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 7:00 pm

    Come to it as someone else” is a soundscape formed from free improvisations and processed field recordings. The piece has a number of relational aspects, with the artists working with raw materials provided by the other. It engages with memory and response, with dialogue and reinterpretation being central to both improvisation and processing of found sound. The work builds on the inherent qualities of acoustic instrumentation and organic sound. This is augmented by processed copies, layering and electronics.

    Stephan Barrett and Adam Kinsey's work is primarily built around free improvisation. They are developing a practice which combines acoustic instrumentation, field recordings and modular synthesis. They share an interest in developing soundscapes through a variety of collaborative processes which respond to and reinterpret raw material. Their work together attempts to utilise the sonic qualities of texture and space. The artists met recently through Mopomoso Workshop Group and Skronk which offer an open platform for free improvisation in London.

     


  • Blue Skies, Baby - Postcards from the Volcano

    6th November 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

    This piece is part of a radio series where we invite an individual to take us to a place that holds significance to them. We then explore the location together, through desultory conversation, field recording and found sound. In the studio we wove together the recordings along with layers of live improvisation, sound effects and musics in keeping with the atmosphere evoked by original walk and the conversation had.

    For this particular show we met Iris Garrelfs, Sound Artist, Improviser and Composer, who took us on a walk around a hidden forest by the banks of the Thames.

    Born in 2015 out of a love for the outdoors, Postcards from the Volcano is a series of sporadic live radio shows focusing on the poetics of landscape, nature and space in relation to the human, interweaving conversation and on location pre-recordings with spoken word pieces, sound art, sonic experiments, sound collage, classical, contemporary, folk and many other forms of music.

    Postcards from the Volcano also perform live utilising text and alternative scores, featuring spoken, taped and manipulated voice, found objects, object resonance and other sonic eccentricities.

  • Selected Radio Works, 2017 - Ilia Rogatchevski

    6th November 2017 @ 9:00 pm - 9:30 pm

    'Selected Radio Works' compiles three recordings that engage with different notions of radio. 'Mute Frequencies' and '60Hz Studio Ambience' combine to explore the characteristics of radio as an electromagnetic phenomenon, whilst 'Souvenir' is a composition about memory, texture and documentation. Constructed from sampled charity shop LPs, VLF recordings and AM radio sweeps, the work explores parallel notions of one’s creative practice and the necessity to document the results of that practice. The tracks are sequenced in a linear fashion so as to suggest movement from the corporeal world of voice and texture (engineered radio) into the liminal spaces of electromagnetic waves, whistlers and sferics (natural radio).

    Ilia Rogatchevski is a Russia-born multimedia artist, journalist and broadcaster living and working in London. Taking cues from insurrectionist modernist movements like Fluxus, Dada and the Situationist International his prolific output varies from painting and collage to installation and radio work. Appropriation and subversion play key roles in his practice, where phrases, sounds or images are culled from popular sources, détourned and then disseminated back into the public sphere. The refracted transformation of the original message encourages the audience to construct new meanings from these uncanny narratives.

  • Black Lodge Songs - Andrea Marioni

    6th November 2017 @ 11:00 pm - 12:00 am

    This composition was produced in Radio Picnic residency between 20-25 january 2016 in Bruxelles. The purpose of the composition is to create from voice without sound effects several tracks which are presented in a radio show from a fictional country or another dimension. The voice of the speaker introduce all the song using Grammelot language, the choice of Black Lodge is a reference to David Lynch's Twin Peaks and I wish to present the soundtrack as coming from unconscious dimension, like a dreamlike voice.

    My approach of arts follows an anthropological point of view on human activities. I like to consider art as phenomena of expression which most of the time deal between environnement, social rules and individual desire. My work could be resume with the following statement: My favorite definition of art is from Marshall Macluhan: the criminal, like the artist is a social explorer.

  • 101.2 FM, Ghostscape - Anton Sarokin

    7th November 2017 @ 12:00 am - 1:00 am

    101.2 FM, Ghostscape is my recent work in the form of 60min. pseudo-radio mix, reproduced from home recordings that I made 17 years ago, in 2000. It is dedicated to the alternative radio station based in Minsk, which I used to listen as a teenager. Using Sony Walkman tapeplayer (identical to the one I was dreaming to have 17 years ago), I re-recorded two last programs of “Radio Style” from old tapes (which were found accidentally at parents’ home) and made a retrospective intro and a kind of invasion into the existing material from the past. The past which seems to be much more about the future than the present.

    I am Anton Sarokin - a multimedia and digital artist with the background in DIY music. I live and work in Minsk, Belarus. In my artistic practice, I focus on issues such as individual and collective memory, political dimension of sound and silence, relationship between music and social sphere, and nonlinear perception of time.

     


  • different time different place different pitch:December 7, 1989, East Berlin - Dani Gal & Achim Lengerer

    7th November 2017 @ 1:00 am - 2:00 am

    The first meeting of the East German Round Table where members of East German
    citizen movements met with government representatives to discuss the future of the
    German Democratic Republic. With Elske Rosenfeld.

    A series of radio programs By Dani Gal and Achim Lengerer. Originally commissioned by Documenta 14.

    The radio is an acousmatic instrument. Listeners do not see the origin of the sound,
    their experience is shaped both by the their own interpretation, and the manipulation
    of the producer in a political system.

    Our programs work on the space between documentary and Musique concrète.
    Each show focuses on political events that are connected to acoustic events. This
    creates an acousmatic documentary where the programs become sound-objects.
    The programs response to the 'image saturated society' discourse, by asking what is
    the function of sound as a document in times of live video feeds that can be broadcast
    by anyone.

    Dani Gal (born 1975, Jerusalem) lives and works in Berlin. He studied at the Bezalel
    Academy for Art and Design in Jerusalem; the Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende
    Künste Städelschule in Frankfurt; and the Cooper Union in New York. His flms and
    works have been shown widely, including: Documenta 14, 54th Venice Biennale
    (2011), The Istanbul Biennale (2011), The New Museum New York (2012),
    Kunsthalle St. Gallen Swizerland (2013), The Jewish museum New York (2014),
    Berlinale Forum Expanded (2014), Kunsthaus Zurich (2015) Kunsthalle Wien (2015)
    And more.

    Achim Lengerer works on political questions of speech and language that he
    thematizes in performances, radio plays or spatializes within installations and
    publications. Lengerer founded different collaborative projects such as freitagsküche
    in Frankfurt a. M. and voiceoverhead, with Dani Gal. Since 2009 Lengerer runs the
    Berlin based showroom and publishing house Scriptings. Different Artists are invited
    – all of which are working with the formats of script and text within their processes of
    production. Lengerer is currently working on his Ph.D. at Goldsmiths, University of
    London, UK, on the format of the rehearsal as an actual format for socio-political
    negotiations.

  • Foundsoundscape - Janek Schaefer

    7th November 2017 @ 2:00 am - 7:00 am

    It's been 20 years exactly since I created 'Recorded Delivery', which quietly collected sounds of the inner realm of the Post Office in March 1995. Back then I could only use cassettes to capture sound, and there was no internet or digital in my world. Two decades later the technical options are staggering, but simplicity and calm is more in demand than ever before.

    Foundsoundscape was inspired by the very first Digital Radio station in the UK, that simply played a recording of a rural location. Radio you could just leave running to add a peaceful ambience to your environment indoors. It heralded a new media paradigm, as digital broadcasting offered more capacity than requred for the first time, and that space needed filling. At the same time on TV, Channel 4 was broadcasting Big Brother live 24hours, and at night I loved to tune-in my analogue TV sets all over the house, and the shed, so I could hear the housemates gently sleeping as I worked through the night. Since then infomercials, and gambling TV have taken over, and I greatly miss that sense of real-time space, that does not demand your attention. Foundsoundscape quietly underscores your environment, by creating new ones from others.

    Radio is special as it was the first medium that could be experienced by many people in many places, all at the same time. Foundsoundscape.com is an online radio station that streams live 24hours a day, which can now be broadcast to people all over the globe. Using over 1000 calm & curious location recordings captured by 100+ recordists, the sounds were simply edited, and then played back three at a time at various volumes in shuffle mode, and the result is never the same twice. You often hear the edges of time as files begin or stop playing mid flow. If you listen ever so carefully you can also hear me working in the studio at the end of the garden late at night, as I have a live mic feeding into the mix. I sometimes like to work with tv radio & music playing, to absorb information, give me ideas, create and share. Email me for a shout-out!

    My hope is that others will find foundsoundscape enjoyable and leave it running all day & all night long, just like a radio! It's as simple as that, with one click. A salute to serendipity and shared sonic space. Bookmark it. Play it in rooms around the house. Share it . . Take a break . . .
    Every day is different.
    Happy Daze.

    "It’s lovely Janek. I really like listening to it.
    Well done! I’ll link it to my friends." [Brian Eno]

    4. Garrett Tiedemann - Status Update

    Caly McMorrow is an interactive art and sound artist based in St. Paul Minnesota. Immediately after the 2016 presidential election she participated in social media catharsis by covering a well referenced Leonard Cohen song and sharing it for those who it may benefit. In this episode, she talks about the post and her continued efforts to unify and connect people together through the complications of life and art. Photos of her interactive installation Status Update can be found on her site and music in this episode is by her from the album All of This is Temporary.

    Garrett Tiedemann is a radio producer, journalist, filmmaker and composer. He works for American Public Media covering the breadth and depth of composed music for YourClassical and Classical Minnesota Public Radio while also producing films, music videos, music and the podcast The White Whale via his production company CyNar Pictures. As a freelancer, he has lent production and compositional approaches to the podcasts Vanishing Ink, Here Be Monsters, The Organist, ARRVLS, Life of the Law, and Top Score. Additionally, he manages production and strategy for the oral history/storytelling project SisterStory.

    5. Andrew Reddy- In Resonance

    The track uses data generated by NMR-spectroscopy, a technique which studies the structure of matter by examining the resonant frequencies of nuclei. A sample is placed in a magnetic field and the nuclei are excited with radio waves which causes them to resonate at a frequency unique to each atom. Hydrogen and carbon resonances from a range of different molecules were used on the track. Each sound is a collection of resonances comprising of every nuclei in the molecule resonating simultaneously which forms a distinct sonic fingerprint, a unique choir of the individual voices of every nucleus resonating in harmony.

  • Major Sporting Event - James Greer and Sam Mackay

    7th November 2017 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

    A collaborative audio work by James Greer and Sam Mackay. Unfolding as a correspondence between two post-human reporters, it weaves together reportage, historical research, field recordings and semi-concrete music to offer a ludic re-narrating of the late modern city. Maritime border zones. East Asian suburbia. Mediterranean port life. Interspecies ambitions. 8-bit soundtracks heard through the prisms of hirajoshi and insen scales. Magical itinerance. Aural pathways through the anthropocene.

    Devised and produced by James Greer and Sam Mackay. Violin: Max Baillie. Additional voices: Nwando Ebizie, Yung Yee Chen. Incorporating additional music by Jean Claude Risset and King Oliver’s Creole Jazz Band.

    James Greer is a field recordist, composer and writer, originally from Scotland but now based in Tokyo. His recent work includes the podcast series TokyoのDensha and is featured on Nick Luscombe’s Japan Sound Portrait 1.1 (Bleep, 2016).
    Sam Mackay is a writer and researcher based in London. He co-founded London Contemporary Music Festival in 2013. His PhD examines the interface of musical culture and urban change in contemporary Marseille.

  • different time different place different pitch: The American Sector - Dani Gal & Achim Lengerer

    7th November 2017 @ 10:00 am - 10:45 am

    A series of radio programs By Dani Gal and Achim Lengerer. Originally commissioned by Documenta 14.

    This episode: The American Sector - The role of RIAS (Radio in the American Sector) in post war Berlin. On both sides of the wall. With Dr. Joan Clinefelter.

    The radio is an acousmatic instrument. Listeners do not see the origin of the sound,
    their experience is shaped both by the their own interpretation, and the manipulation
    of the producer in a political system.

    Our programs work on the space between documentary and Musique concrète.
    Each show focuses on political events that are connected to acoustic events. This
    creates an acousmatic documentary where the programs become sound-objects.
    The programs response to the 'image saturated society's discourse, by asking what is
    the function of sound as a document in times of live video feeds that can be broadcast
    by anyone.

    Dani Gal (born 1975, Jerusalem) lives and works in Berlin. He studied at the Bezalel
    Academy for Art and Design in Jerusalem; the Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende
    Künste Städelschule in Frankfurt; and the Cooper Union in New York. His flms and
    works have been shown widely, including: Documenta 14, 54th Venice Biennale
    (2011), The Istanbul Biennale (2011), The New Museum New York (2012),
    Kunsthalle St. Gallen Swizerland (2013), The Jewish museum New York (2014),
    Berlinale Forum Expanded (2014), Kunsthaus Zurich (2015) Kunsthalle Wien (2015)
    And more.

    Achim Lengerer works on political questions of speech and language that he
    thematizes in performances, radio plays or spatializes within installations and
    publications. Lengerer founded different collaborative projects such as freitagsküche
    in Frankfurt a. M. and voiceoverhead, with Dani Gal. Since 2009 Lengerer runs the
    Berlin based showroom and publishing house Scriptings. Different Artists are invited
    – all of which are working with the formats of script and text within their processes of
    production. Lengerer is currently working on his Ph.D. at Goldsmiths, University of
    London, UK, on the format of the rehearsal as an actual format for socio-political
    negotiations.

  • Untitled for cello, mangle, youtube and voice - Lisa Busby and Rose Dagul

    7th November 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

    Lisa and Rose have a shared interest in making visible process activities. Also in the intangible connections, hidden layers, and emergent materials of the compositional process. This, as yet untitled, work exists as a series of movable parts; all of which form the most expanded conception of its material and immaterial elements but not all of which need to surface in any given iteration of the work. These include - scored elements both notated and instructional, objects, songs by other artists, online video, a decibel meter, conversations between collaborators.

    Iteration 1 for Radiophrenia, 2017.

    Series of six semi-improvised studies for cello, amplified mangle, and voice, in linear sequence with processed youtube audio ARCHIVE_ 10 Years Ago Today Britney Shaves Heads And Gets Tattooed! by X17Online Video [For all the latest Celebrity Gossip, Entertainment News and the best Paparazzi Photos and Video]. Pitch material for cello generated by application of various filtering exercises to Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds Hallelujah. Objects in performance of mangle include chalk, sugar, USB drives, tampons. Other performance instructions, for both instruments, derived from Fleetway Foldaway Wringer instructions for use. Conversations during the making process reflected on intangible experiences of everyday anxiety, fear and despair, and by contrast the ways we have to represent or articulate them; Britney's instagram account; ASMR, slime and hydraulic press videos on youtube; does Lisa's dad have any tools that we can crush things with; Rihanna 'Diamonds'; an interview with Robert Wyatt that Rose heard (Late Junction?); Anne Griffiths Codiaeum Variegatum; recent/various reading on vulnerability, sadness, sickness and hysteria in relation to empowerment and resistance; whether to record our voices.

    Lisa Busby is a Scottish artist, composer, and vocalist working in London, in long duration forms, performance video, text based score, installation and site specific performance. She is interested in exploring the fringes of song; the appropriation of everyday objects and scenarios with a particular focus on using domestic playback media and objects as instruments; and how pop culture artefacts can be set in new and unusual contexts. She's worked with venues including Blackwood Gallery Toronto, IAC Malmö, Tate, Wysing Arts, and Cafe Oto; curators Electra, Primary and Saisonscape; labels Adaadat and The Lumen Lake; and with collaborators Rutger Hauser, The Nomadic Female DJ Troupe, and Gabriel Bohm Calles.

    Rose Dagul is an artist, composer and cellist living in London. She is the co-founder and coordinator of The Surround, a DIY platform for performance and music, and is a co-conductor of the Peckham Chamber Orchestra. Other projects include Rhosyn, Holy Island Sketchbook, Rutger Hauser and Alien Wind.

    1. Rose Knapp - Timaeus Valentinius ἀποκάλυψις

    Conceptually two shorter philosophically inclined works, questioning whether syntheses of different worldviews are truly possible, such as Wittgensteinian Quietism and Utilitarianism, Heideggerian views on technology and traditional linear Progressive ones, or dualistic religions and monist ones.

    Rose Knapp is a poet and producer. She has EPs & LPs released on D.M.T. Records, Hylé Tapes, Always Human Tapes, Far East Sound, and others. She currently lives in Los Angeles.

    2. The Doll - Triple G v3 - Funnel and Pipe French Horn

    The Doll has been making hideous solo sounds since 2005. Her no-fi aesthetic is a hit with toddlers. The Doll also has a sideline in field recording, diapercore & household appliances.
    She has recently been playing in Seattle noise improv bands TBA & PUNTERS and Auckland bands Septithe & Unknown Tofu. Her US/Aotearoa collective project, Contact Mike, has over 40 band members aged 14 months and up.

    "The Doll can be constituted by mixing 3 parts experiment, 4 parts noise, 1 part ritual, and 2 parts theatre, with a pinch of space dust." - Alt Music

    http://www.dadashopping.net/

    3. Vincent Eoppolo - America First

    I view my works as a synthesis of various sound art traditions including musique concrete, acousmatic music and radio art.

    In my work I strive to present brief moments of the world we are living in. Society in the continuing process of realizing itself. Our relationship with each other, with technology, our morality, spirituality, sexuality, our anxieties and fears. In many ways my works are like sociological and psychological commentaries. My work has been featured on Bernard Clarke's program Nova on RTE's Lyric FM, Phaune Radio from Montpellier, France as well as Radio Art International on CHOQ Radio in Montreal. My works were recently presented at the 2017 New York City Electro-Acoustic Music Festival.

    5. Mark Vernon - To Roar or to Whisper

    Composed from a recording of a rune reading in Penzance, wind chimes and field recordings also made in Penzance but on an earlier visit. As asceptic I have an ambivalent relationship with fortune telling so for this reading I tried my best to keep an open mind.

    Mark Vernon is a Glasgow-based artist whose work exists on the fringes of sound art, music and broadcasting. At the core of his practice lies a fascination with the intimacy of the radio voice, environmental sound, obsolete media and the reappropriation of found recordings. A keen advocate of radio as an art form, he co-runs Glasgow art radio station, Radiophrenia and has produced programmes for stations internationally.

    Soundart piece with vinyl disc with problems, three Korg Monotron and osvaldo cibils in el arte de las perillas.

    osvaldo cibils. 1961. Artist born in Montevideo, Uruguay. He lives in Trento, Italia. His artworks are oriented to drawing, soundart, videoart and the development of experimental ideas mainly.

    During the realization of my artworks I limit myself to a few movements, repeated, with little variations: the hands neutralizing the materials, the eye straight in the action, the breathing contained and brief, the head rigid and the thoughts compressed based on my artistic logic.

    8. Sarah Boothroyd - What a Lovely Way to Burn

    She looks at him. He looks at her. Their eyes lock and sparks fly. They fan the flame - a coy smile here, a flirtatious gesture there - and soon there is a burning desire between them. But all the while, lurking in the background, is fear. Fear of rejection. Fear of betrayal. Fear of loss. This short audio work explores the definition of romantic love as "giving someone the power to destroy you, but trusting them not to." Music: Viewfound / Speaking Through Walls (Part 1)/ Forthcoming Shimmering Moods Records (2016).

    The audio work of Canadian Sarah Boothroyd has been featured by broadcasters, festivals and galleriesin over 25 countries. She has won awards from Third Coast International Audio Festival,New York Festivals, the European Broadcasting Union, and La Muse En Circuit.

  • The Art & podcast - Art & Geology

    7th November 2017 @ 3:45 pm - 4:30 pm

    Welcome to the Art & Podcast, a podcast that asks "What do you do?" and "Can that be called Art?". Hosted by artist and performer Ronan Mcmahon, and loyally assisted by
    producer Roy Shearer, each episode takes the listener on a conversational tour of a different occupation. We delve into how each guest perceives art and creativity, and to what extent both relate to their day job, all whilst taking a nice walk during their lunch break.

    In this episode we ask: can Geology be called an art-form? We took a walk up Arthur's Seat in Edinburgh with geologist Gareth Johnson to find out. Will Geology pass our 'extremely scientific' 7-question Art Test?

    Ronan Mcmahon is a stage and radio comedy performer with a passion for the convergence of science and art. He regularly collaborates with Naomi O Kelly as the clowning, storytelling, puppetry, live music and social satire partnership, Two Detectives.

    Roy Shearer is a designer and musician, who often consults as a technician to the arts, and occasionally makes his own forays into sound art and interactive installation.

  • LENGHEDIVACJE Ep.1 - Renato Rinaldi

    7th November 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 5:30 pm

    Ten stories for the radio – Five collected stories elaborated into five sound tales

    Project by Renato Rinaldi
    Production and organisation by Hybrida
    Pieces by Slavek Kwi - Eric la casa - Antje Vowinckel - Ward Weis - Giuseppe Ielasi
    Funded by Arlef / Agjenzie Regjonâl pe Lenghe Furlane
    Aired by Frioulian local Radio Onde Furlane

    Language is a sound, before being a meaning, and it’s the first human element in a soundscape. The stories have then been selected according to the ability of the teller in using the language in a dramatic way more than for the stories themselves. For each story we have commissioned a music piece in which the recorded tale had to be the core of the composition. Such tranformation could only be possible in the hands of people who doesn’t have access to the meaning of the words. That is why we have chosen musicians the furthest away possible from Friulian geography, culture and language so as to have them relate with a new, as far as this is possible today, sound context.

    The title literally means cow tongue but it refers to a edible plant: Rumex patientia, known as patience dock, "garden patience", "herb patience", or "monk's rhubarb", is a herbaceous perennial plant species of the genus Rumex, belonging to the family Polygonaceae. In spring it is often consumed as a leaf vegetable in Southern Europe.

    The Friulian language is a mosaic of units, more often micro-units, territorial, each one with its own linguistic nuances and peculiar sound. The development of such peculiarities is the result of a long and continuous exchange with the environment, which each community entertains while setting its roots in a certain area. Language is a sound, before being a meaning, and it’s the first human element in a soundscape. The project Lenghedivacje endeavours at bringing out the sound of the Friulian language, throughout the collection of recorded material concerning historical or personal events.

    The stories have then been selected according to the ability of the teller in using the language in a dramatic way more than for the stories themselves. The events told are of course significant also as testimony but are especially extraordinary for the way in which they are “spoken” because they are unique and unique is the language they are using. Inside these stories there is a rich musical potential but in order to bring it out we have pushed the language over the wall of sense. For each story we have commissioned a music piece in which the recorded tale had to be the core of the composition. Such transformation could only be possible in the hands of people who could appreciate exclusively the sound of the language thus deprived of its dramatic element linked to sense. That is why we have chosen musicians the furthest away possible from Friulian geography, culture and language so as to have them relate with a new, as far as this is possible today, sound context. The composers selected for this task are people who routinely work with the sound of language and who use the radio as a means of expression investigating its communication possibilities. Each one of them was asked to work on a music composition starting exclusively form the recorded material assigned to them. The result is a series of compositions created from the phonemes (sound bits) of the Friulian language though enjoyable also away from its understanding.

    Collected tales

    1a - Elsa Fazzutti - Interview collected in Forni di sotto (UD)
    She talks about the peculiarities of the Friulian language as it is spoken in Forni di Sopra e Forni di Sotto. She also quotes some satirical writings and some improvised stories coming from the inhabitants.

    Elaborated into 1b - Inton tions by Slavek Kwi - (Irland)
    I extracted every word, phrase and cluster of words which attracted my attention due to its sound qualities, texture and/or intonation. I treated each word as abstract sound-object. These have been fragmented in various ways and repeated, though irregularly - more as cycles. These were further processed as filtering interesting colors etc. sequences created this way I mixed as sound-environments, e.g. using sound organisation in layers observed in rainforest (part 1). The second part is more linear and bare, developed as gestures. The whole composition is focused on diversity through variations.

    Renato Rinaldi studied acting, composition and electronic music. He has worked extensively in theater, first as an actor and then as a sound artist. As a musician he has composed music for theatre, radio plays and documentaries, video and sound installations. He is interested in composition applied to the relationship between sound /environment. He has also produced radio plays, documentaries and radio reportages, aired by Radio RAI and Radio France.

    Asparagus Piss Raindrop - R&R Rat Race at The Witch Hazel School – Phase 3

    The Scene: night, skeletal pieces of driftwood, small fragments of friendship washed up on the beach of late capitalist dystopia. A few small creatures are stirring in the phosphorescence and the jellyfish decay. Are they friendly? Are they of this world?
    Announcing Phase 3 of R&R Rat Race at The Witch Hazel School, a radio play by Asparagus Piss Raindrop. Wherein:

    – All characters are based on real people but their names have not been changed to protect the innocent.
    – Accompanying sounds will be created using amplified contracts, canned migration and organic folé.

    For this performance Asparagus Piss Raindrop are Neil Davidson, Lucy Duncombe, Liene Rozite, Julia Letitia Scott, Fritz Welch

    Asparagus Piss Raindrop are a crypto conceptual science fiction anti climax band dedicated to pushing beyond all reasonable limits what live music performance can be. Asparagus Piss Raindrop is formed from a dreadful, ever-expanding pool of performer / composer / improvisers from the Glasgow (and beyond) experimental music scene. The group‘s work arises from the questions; How can we do things otherwise? What musical forms arise from and inform our daily experience? Performances typically draw on such things as recycled children’s games, group therapy, shapeshifting, declarations of ridiculous texts, geology, architectural intervention, gender theory, site specificity and slug reproduction. APR have been commissioned to produce work by Tectonics Glasgow, Glasgow International, Tectonics Iceland, Transmission Gallery Glasgow, Association CRIC in France and Supernormal Festival in Oxfordshire.

  • Return to Aporia - Jamie Cooper and Elina Bry - live in the studio

    7th November 2017 @ 9:30 pm - 10:00 pm
    the studio

    The Return to Aporia text itself draws on Dadaist post-logic writing to imagine a different world. Much like Afro-futurism, this process is used as a tool to both imagine our way forward via this new other world and also to transcend to this other world in order to reflect
    more critically on our own everyday realities.

    Elina Bry is a multi disciplinary artist currently studying on the MFA and with experience of performance art, notably presenting work at Lights Out Listening Group this year.

    Jamie Cooper is also a multi disciplinary artist currently studying on the MFA but with little experience of performing, being much happier writing and plotting in the background.

    Jamie and Elina have been working on developing the project collaboratively since November 2016 and the performance for Radiophrenia would be the realisation of this collaboration.

    A recorded version of the text is available here:

  • Nachrichtenstellt - Marc Matter

    7th November 2017 @ 10:00 pm - 10:30 pm

    ‘NACHRICHTENTSTELLT’ is an electroacoustic radio-collage of news-broadcasts by Marc Matter, originally produced for SWR2.

    Newstexts have a very special form - short, concentrated and standardised. For a long time, I have been fascinated by this aim to objectivity, to speak-out the news-data as neutral as possible. I have recorded and collected lots of radio-news (in german language) which have been further processed and mutated with the use of electroacoustic means. Composed into a sound-text, this composition highlights all the standard words, phrases and inflections typical for radio-news, in a playful manner.

    Marc Matter (*1974 in Basel, CH) sound-artist and researcher, former member of Institut fuer Feinmotorik. 1998 - 2003 studies at Academy for Media Arts (Cologne) with Valie Export and Siegfried Zielinksi. Assistant-professor for Music & Text at IMM Düsseldorf, curator at salon-des-amateurs. Extensive studies about Sound Poetry, especially about the OU review by Henri Chopin and curator for the international festival for text-sound-poetry (ISSUE project room 2015). Composer of several sound-texts for radio, developing a practice of text-sound for recording and performance. Collaborations with several artists, i.e. poet Dagmara Kraus, performance-artist Veridiana Zurita, visual artists Haseeb Ahmed and Tris Vonna-Michell, sound-artist Tom White, and software-developper and artist Robert M Ochshorn.

     


  • Circuits±Waves - Johnny Farrow

    7th November 2017 @ 10:30 pm - 11:30 pm

    Circuits±Waves is a 53 minute mix of shortwave radio recordings plus other recordings. The work is location specific (the shortwave was recorded in the UAE), but also outward reaching — shortwave signals travel long distances, bouncing off the ionosphere to defy the curvature of the earth. The work begins with manipulated recordings of albatross mixed with the sounds of satellite telemetry, then moves slowly toward the shortwave spectrum. The sounds are always suggestive, giving a feeling of connection to something on a global/cosmic scale, hinting at the natural world and at our very direct manipulation of and interaction with invisible forces.

    Jonny Farrow is a multi-disciplinary artist working across sculpture, hardware hacking, printmaking, and sound art. His work uses sound as both a poetics and a material to research the liminal spaces of cultural memory and suspect histories. Utilizing concepts such as resonance, feedback, and transmission, Farrow sounds these spaces through various material means and aims to set them vibrating.

  • different time different place different pitch:Between Beirut and Gaza - Dani Gal & Achim Lengerer

    8th November 2017 @ 1:00 am - 2:00 am

    Ghazi Barakat talks about growing up under the shadow of the Palestinian struggle
    and how this experience translates into his musical work.

    A series of radio programs By Dani Gal and Achim Lengerer. Originally commissioned by Documenta 14.

    The radio is an acousmatic instrument. Listeners do not see the origin of the sound,
    their experience is shaped both by the their own interpretation, and the manipulation
    of the producer in a political system.

    Our programs work on the space between documentary and Musique concrète.
    Each show focuses on political events that are connected to acoustic events. This
    creates an acousmatic documentary where the programs become sound-objects.
    The programs response to the 'image saturated society' discourse, by asking what is
    the function of sound as a document in times of live video feeds that can be broadcast
    by anyone.

    Dani Gal (born 1975, Jerusalem) lives and works in Berlin. He studied at the Bezalel
    Academy for Art and Design in Jerusalem; the Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende
    Künste Städelschule in Frankfurt; and the Cooper Union in New York. His flms and
    works have been shown widely, including: Documenta 14, 54th Venice Biennale
    (2011), The Istanbul Biennale (2011), The New Museum New York (2012),
    Kunsthalle St. Gallen Swizerland (2013), The Jewish museum New York (2014),
    Berlinale Forum Expanded (2014), Kunsthaus Zurich (2015) Kunsthalle Wien (2015)
    And more.

    Achim Lengerer works on political questions of speech and language that he
    thematizes in performances, radio plays or spatializes within installations and
    publications. Lengerer founded different collaborative projects such as freitagsküche
    in Frankfurt a. M. and voiceoverhead, with Dani Gal. Since 2009 Lengerer runs the
    Berlin based showroom and publishing house Scriptings. Different Artists are invited
    – all of which are working with the formats of script and text within their processes of
    production. Lengerer is currently working on his Ph.D. at Goldsmiths, University of
    London, UK, on the format of the rehearsal as an actual format for socio-political
    negotiations.

  • Commence Exuding The Opaque Vapour - Barry Burns

    8th November 2017 @ 2:00 am - 7:00 am

    For the last five years I have taken a sample from every video I watch on my laptop. As a tip of the hat to William Burroughs and Robert Anton Wilson I take the sample from the 23rd minute. Each sample is arranged and layered chronologically, constructing an aleatory narrative, a random DJ mix of dialogue, music and foley, a self portrait of viewing habits and memory. VHS rips merge with Blu Ray restorations, youtube binges mingle with abandoned box sets.

    Barry Burns is not the bloke out of Mogwai, its a different, unsuccessful one. He is the co-manager of Radiophrenia and has used his immense power to give himself the highly coveted 5am slot.

  • Alan Courtis - Hombrear

    8th November 2017 @ 7:45 am - 8:00 am

    "Los Galpones" contains four dark and grimacing industrial-tinged drone pieces. Employing the electric guitar, the violin, springs and other found objects, Courtis creates a soundscape that is at times oppressive and dense. A reflection perhaps on the post-industrial urban landscape of his native Buenos Aires. This album should be played loud.

    "Los Galpones" is the latest solo full-length release conjured up by the extremely prolific Buenos Aires-based composer Alan Courtis (aka Anla Courtis). Courtis has straddled the international noise underground and the academic-centered modern composition scenes since the early 1990's. As a solo artist, with the Argentine experimental group Reynols, and in collaborations with Pauline Oliveros, Makoto Kawabata (Acid Mothers Temple), Lasse Marhaug, Aaron Moore (Volcano the Bear), Okkyung Lee, and Daniel Menche among others, Courtis has amassed an impressive discography.

    8. Costantino Toth aka Onirologia - Waves and Ladders

    1. Dorota Blaszczak – Augmented Radio Listening - ARL No.2

    An audio representation of a space of coexisting radio broadcasts, crowded with numerous radio waves. It is structured in the form of short variations on the sound of concurrent radio transmissions, as though we could perceive all the waves at the same time, with overlaps, distortions, splits, modulations, vibrations and movement. It is based on real sound streams of several Polish radio stations, broadcast on Jun 29, 2017, collected from the beginning of each hour throughout the day and played back simultaneously as a sequence of variations. The piece should be listened to on headphones as it uses binaural processing.

    The module for binaural processing and movement was programmed by Glen Fraser.

    Bio: Dorota Blaszczak is an audio engineer in Polish Radio Archives in Warsaw and an assistant at the Sound Engineering Department of the University of Music. She teaches Interactive Sound courses, works with sound restoration and preservation, creates interactive projects. She worked as sound designer for VR projects in Canada.

    2. Chloe Reid – Untitled

    Chloë Reid is a South African artist currently considering her practice through a socio-physiological framework. Positioned between sociology, biology and psychology, this term refers to the relationship between a society and the habitual physical functions of individuals within that society. She uses film, writing and audio to pare down, repeat and create rhythmical descriptions of objects and actions in an attempt to locate a kind of politics in regular intuitive performance.

    3. Adam Paroussos - Cosmohonic Fantasia Mvt. III Fractal Reprise

    COSMOPHONIC FANTASIA: Mvts I-III (OST)

    Cosmophonic Fantasia is predominately a musique concrète film in three movements: I Audio Field, II Bamboo Mustard and III Fractal Reprise. This piece explores the metaphysical and expressive nature of sound and inspired by Sonata form. ‘Audio Field’ uses a collection of montaged film and sound samples and ‘remixes’ them together to turn the everyday experiences of sound into a dream-like sonic experience. Mvt 2,‘Bamboo Mustard’ uses collected fragments of live performances to piece together the journey of this character - Bamboo Mustard. The final movement Fractal Reprise concludes the film, exploring the underlying structures within the natural and sound.

    Adam Paroussos is an interdisciplinary sound artist and designer, just graduated from Central Saint Martins, BA Performance Design and Practice. His work is rooted in performative, collaborative and experimental approaches with sound and music. Under his Nova award-nominated alter-ego ‘Bamboo Mustard’, he performs with DIY instruments in a sound costume in the cracks and corners of London. Adam works across theatre, live art and film including composing the soundtrack for Andrea Zimmerman’s ‘Erase and Forget’ documentary and Jotdown’s physical theatre show ‘Haidar’.

    5. Hilary Mullaney - Sound Card

    I wrote this 'sound card' as a gift for my partner. Sharing these sounds with him was a way for us to connect as we navigated our long distance relationship. It was written only for his ears, until now. What was meant to be a short, quirky Valentine's Day message (without the schmaltz) turned into a detailed work using recordings made in a variety of locations including my home in Dublin city; Bull Island, a nature reserve in Dublin Bay; Plymouth, UK, and plundered sounds and voices, all of which were manipulated and sculpted into this 12 minute composition. This work explores moments together, friends, common places, memories, domesticity, whispers, flutters, hopes. This sound montage has a number of different scenes depicting our memories, not only in a literal sense, but also poetic sonic interpretations of the intangible aspects of falling in love.

    Hilary Mullaney (Ph.D, MA, BA Music) is a composer based in Dublin, Ireland. She writes primarily fixed media compositions, and her practice is particularly concerned with how place is expressed in acousmatic music. Her compositions have been broadcast and performed at numerous festivals and events worldwide.

    7. B. D. Owens – You Should be so Lucky: a polysemy

    you should be so lucky: a polysemy is an experimental voice composition that examines the assertion that the idiom ‘you should be so lucky’ is a polysemy (a word or phrase with multiple coexisting meanings). This work was first exhibited as part of the Tainted Luck installation in the DJCAD Masters Show, 2017.

    B. D. Owens is a multi-disciplinary artist based near Helensburgh. He develops his conceptual ideas while walking and writing. Text, layered interpretation and language play are threads that run through his work. Currently, he is examining and challenging the binary doctrines of: Winners & Losers, Losing & Finding and Sameness & Difference. He is graduating with Distinction from the Art, Society & Publics MFA Programme at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design 2017.

    8 Onirologia - Waves and Ladders

    "Waves and Ladders" started with an EEG of me during sleep. The data was then translated to sound and manipulated to recreate dreams that different family members had recounted to me while I was in Italy.

    "Waves and Ladders" is the 10th track off of "O", my debut album. "O" was created with audio/visual materials that reference my immigrant experience, whether that be a home video, brainwaves, or my genome report. Contrafact, clipping, and ambience become metaphors for the desire for home.

    Onirologia (b. 1995) is an Italian-American music artist from Sarasota, Florida. Their work fuses traditional Italian music, their musical background (Jazz and Rock), and Electronic in order to explore themes of immigration and queerness. They have exhibited works in Florida, Richmond, and India and have appeared in media outlets such as ART Habens and the Huffington Post.

  • To Syros - Viv Corringham

    8th November 2017 @ 10:40 am - 11:00 am

    Syros- a Greek island- music in the squares at night-- I sing an old song into a well at the Jesuit monastery- Katarina takes me to a place she finds “very mystic”- Yiannis tells me how music seeped into him as a child from the sounds and rhythms of the island as he rode on his grandfather’s donkey- the home of Rembetika (Greek Blues) legend Marcos- Leyla holds the spirit of the island inside her during dark days and wonders why Syros pulls her back every year- my singing voice improvises my memories of walking with these three.

    Singer and soundscape artist Viv Corringham creates music, radio works, installations and soundwalks. Work in the last 12 months includes festivals in New York, Athens and Torino, an artist residency in Venice, and work as artist mentor in Manila and Hong Kong.

    8th November 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm

    Radio performance based on Carl Sandburg’s Four Preludes to the Playthings of the
    Wind, with vocalist Laura Wiens.

    Gregory Whitehead is the creator of more than one hundred radio plays, essays
    and acoustic adventures for the BBC, Radio France, Deutschland Radio, Australia’s
    ABC, NPR and others. Often interweaving documentary and fictive materials into
    playfully unresolved narratives, Whitehead's aesthetic is distinguished by a deep
    philosophical commitment to radio as a medium for poetic navigation and free
    association. In his voice and text-sound works, he explores the tension between a
    continuous breath/pulse and the eruption of chaotic discontinuities, as well as
    exploring rhythms of linguistic entropy and decay.

  • Out of Place: Delia Derbyshire in Cumbria - Jenn Mattinson

    8th November 2017 @ 12:30 pm - 1:00 pm

    This particular story covers the time electronic music pioneer Delia Derbyshire spent in Cumbria in the mid-1970s. It's one of those stories that will always remain rather ambiguous, as very little is known about this period in her life, so I have tried to reflect this in parts of the telling, and added my own theatrical interpretations to the piece. It has a foundation of two female oral history testimonies with an original sonic composition, produced to help reflect and re-tell elements of the story.

    Jenn Mattinson is a freelance creative facilitator and sound artist based in Keswick, Cumbria. She has delivered a wide range of community initiatives, including oral history projects, community exhibitions and creative workshops for people living with dementia. She has produced a number of radio and sound art pieces, including a series of commissions from Octopus Collective, a sound art and new music organisation based in Barrow-in-Furness. Jenn is passionate about exploring multidisciplinary approaches to storytelling, and this if often reflected in her range of work.

     


  • the silence of nostalghia - Sebastiane Hegarty

    8th November 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

    Part of a series of silenced films, for the silence of nostalghia, all dialogue and non-diegetic sound has been redacted from Andrei Tarkovsky’s 1983 film Nostalghia.
    The silence that survives pulls the background into focus, concentrating the attention of the ear on the sonic details of an emerging landscape, wet with the revenants of footfall, entrance and exit. The textures of optical-sound silence, reminiscent of the atmospheric leaks and spillages of radio transmission, amplify the spectral and oneiric qualities of a soundscape where apparitions of place and time seem to appear, disappear, dissolve and fragment.

    Sebastiane Hegarty is an artist, writer and lecturer. His practice explores the relationship between time, place and sensation, primarily through field-recording and soundscape composition. His work has been exhibited and broadcast across the UK and Europe: It’s Eating You, (IMT Gallery, London, 2015), and Heliocemtra, (Museum Punta della Dogana, Venice, 2016). In 2015 he curated the multidisciplinary conference, Chalk: time, sense landscape. More recently he contributed to the Sound of Memory symposium at Goldsmiths, London (2017). Published through Impulsive Habitat, Gruenrekorder and Very Quiet Records, works for radio include, It’s Just Where I Put My Words, (BBC Radio 3, 2013).

  • Time Constraints aka the 32Megabyte mix-tape - Alan Bryden

    8th November 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

    Inspired by some of the constraints that are associated with older digital technology, the idea of this performance is to work with the maximum number of audio files that can fit into the 32M memory space of my well worn but fully functioning 1999 Akai MPC2000XL sampler. At the time of it's release nearly two decades ago, this was a quite high spec piece of kit, but now it's tiny memory is frankly laughable in comparison with the giant digital storage capabilities of contemporary laptops and even mobile phones. 32M is just over 6 minutes of sampling time. But constraints can often be a very useful creative tool, forcing us to make concise decisions and think in an original way to get the most out of the least. For example, many of the early adopters of sampling technology had to find ways to be creative within such limited scope. Beat makers like DJ Premier famously used to speed up the records they wanted to sample to fit the section they wanted to loop into the tiny memory capacity of their samplers and then slow the sample down afterwards to return it to it's original pitch. This resulted in a unique grainy texture that has defined the sound of early hip hop productions.

    I have asked a number of exciting contemporary artists and musicians who work with sound recordings to send me just over a minute of diverse sounds from their sonic archives. I haven't given them any brief beyond this suggestion. I have worked in the past with samples - and the idea of collaging and re-contextualising sounds. It's by no means a unique concept, but has endless possibilities. And as a community musician I often work very spontaneously to create improvised music with clients. There is an excitement in creating a framework in community music which is both easy to enter and enabling for the participants, but at the same time full of the possibility of what on earth might happen next. I see these two strands of my work colliding in this idea. Here I can only work with what there is. Anything could come out of the editing, processing and re-arrangement of the sounds, making it more than just the audio sum of it's multi-track parts.

  • Lines of Reason - Eshi Eshun

    8th November 2017 @ 3:45 pm - 4:00 pm

    Inspired by the discovery of an abandoned ghost library, Lines of Reason blends atmospheric original music, traditional song sequences and extracts from thinkers including Plato and Aristotle, to convey dream-like notions of reason and unreason, linear and circular time and traditional ideas of Englishness – hinting also at contemporary crises of identity, memory and truth in culture and politics. Originally designed to be played in fugue form for a multi-channel installation, the radio version uses a simple pitch pipe and, primarily, the artist’s own voice, to build a lightly textured, haunting soundscape.

    Esi Eshun has recently completed a year-long course in Experimental Sound Art taught by artist Graham Dunning. This recording, presented as part of an installation at New River Studios, London, follows on from a semi-improvised composition performed live at The Hundred Years Gallery in Hoxton.

    1. Vincent Eoppolo - Poeme Albert-Birot

    I view my works as a synthesis of various sound art traditions including musique concrete, acousmatic music and radio art.

    In my work I strive to present brief moments of the world we are living in. Society in the continuing process of realizing itself. Our relationship with each other, with technology, our morality, spirituality, sexuality, our anxieties and fears. In many ways my works are like sociological and psychological commentaries. My work has been featured on Bernard Clarke's program Nova on RTE's Lyric FM, Phaune Radio from Montpellier, France as well as Radio Art International on CHOQ Radio in Montreal. My works were recently presented at the 2017 New York City Electro-Acoustic Music Festival.

    2. Rachel Cattle - On Air

    On Air is a sonic collage made from sound tracks taken from a series of short videos. Made in my studio, at home and in areas nearby using mainly static, durational shots of incidental objects or small creative events, the sound was at first incidental, but eventually became the overriding feature - the videos felt like field recordings and some of the outdoor shots incorporated sounds from a transistor radio. The soundscape was first transmitted live, via speakers into a gallery space and has since been made into a transparent vinyl record. Live transmission returns it back to the airwaves.

    Rachel Cattle has recently finished a Contemporary Art PhD at Kingston University entitled I Am a Stylus: Play, Replay, Overdub, Broadcast. Recent events and exhibitions include The Yellow Book - 3 half hour radio programmes broadcast live on Resonance fm and Radiophrenia and A Million Lapses and Pauses, a series of events across Five Years, the ICA, London and Dorich House, Kingston - A Million Lapses and Pauses continues a radio(aktiv) broadcast in the form of recorded sound, live readings, publications and posters orbiting the publication Witch Dance - notes for radio.

    3. Ronnie Blake - Number Station (Lillibullero Redux)

    Short wave Number Station signals capture people’s curiosity with their eerie sounds and unknown meaning. Some have gone to great lengths to decode the broadcasts and locate the stations. Radio, like so much media today, is being disrupted and is under stress. The notion of ‘Pirate Radio’ seems like a relic from the past in the present context.
    The BBC World Service ident ‘Lillibullero’ contained many layers of meaning beyond the utilitarian. This deconstructed melody, strained text to voice bot, and SOS reflect a current condition. Yet, radio retains the power to spark the imagination and waits to be rediscovered.

    My formal music lessons were on violin and at a young age I trained in Radio Broadcasting. While I was in punk, new wave and indie bands I began experimenting more with sound which led to a focus in electronic music. I composed pieces for theatre, short films and the International Mail Art Network.
I had an electronic duo called Sloth Brain that performed at Nuit Blanche Toronto in 2009, 2010, and 2013. I continue to improvise with DRONE:KLUB and Cosmic Homeostasis.
I am a DJ and produce Techno, House and experimental works as REquel and
the _protoplasm_population.

    4. Garrett Tiedemann - Last Thursday (in Fragments) - Episode 2 - It was, in some ways, a total disaster

    In 2015 Don Chambers hosted "a music and other things entertainment" each month called The Last Thursday. Each month had its own theme and governed not only the types of content, but way of presentation for the evening. These evenings lived and died in the moment with very little social media promotion or archiving.
    In series 2 of The White Whale we offer snippets of these evenings; providing first glimpses beyond the nights of what went down and why their existence foregoing online permanence is important. Visit http://www.donchambersmusic.com/ for music and more.

    Garrett Tiedemann is a radio producer, journalist, filmmaker and composer. He works for American Public Media covering the breadth and depth of composed music for YourClassical and Classical Minnesota Public Radio while also producing films, music videos, music and the podcast The White Whale via his production company CyNar Pictures. As a freelancer, he has lent production and compositional approaches to the podcasts Vanishing Ink, Here Be Monsters, The Organist, ARRVLS, Life of the Law, and Top Score. Additionally, he manages production and strategy for the oral history/storytelling project SisterStory.

    5. Tom Miller (aka Comrade Squelch) - Are You Listening

    Do you really know how to listen to the radio? Text-to-speech bots, speech-to-text bots, Internet radio scanning, news programs, shortwave drift, and an instructional tape are here to inform you. Are You Listening?, originally composed for Wave Farm radio, is a follow-up to Spectral Wars, which was selected for Radiophrenia 2016 in the Shorts category. The present mix was first broadcast on WGXC-FM in July 2017.

    Tom Miller, a.k.a. Comrade Squelch, is a sonic anthropologist. He was an Artist in Residence at Wave Farm in 2017 and premiered his latest composition at Drum Castle in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Past residencies include the American Museum of Natural History, Anchorage Museum, Bates College Theater, Ethnographic Terminalia, and Proteus Gowanus. A National Endowment for the Arts award-winning composer, he produced public radio programs for WKCR-FM and KRAB-FM. He has a B.A. in Music from Wesleyan and a Ph.D. in Anthropology from Columbia University, and has taught at NYU’s Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music, Pratt, and the University of Iceland.

    7. Luke Pell – Simone Kenyon A Sea View

    Some Words to Wander With are a series of recordings as part of In the Ink Dark, a dance and a poem made from from memory and conversation. A project from Luke Pell and collaborators. Created as part of the project invited voices - artists who make dances, whose works are both poetic and choreographic - offer a collection of musings that speak to words and to dances, bodies and buildings, science and nature, to thought and to feeling, to memory, materiality, landscape and loss. They are wisdoms for living, some words to wander with where you live, at work, at rest, at home, away.

    Fascinated by detail, nuances of time, texture, memory and landscape Luke Pell is a maker and curator who collaborates with other artists and organisations imagining alternative contexts for performance, participation and discourse that might reveal wisdoms for living. Noticing threads that weave between people and place his artistic projects take form as intimate encounters, poetic objects, installations and environments - choreographies - for physical and virtual spaces.

    8. Peter Hawkey - The Wotsit King

    The Wotsit King is a piece composed using set notes based on Donald Trump’s most commonly tweeted words. The set notes could be played at any octave on any instrument used. The notes that had to be played were B, F, D, F#, F, A#, D#, G#, D, A#, D#, D#, E, G#, B, D#. These gave a very dystopian final piece!

    Peter Hawkey is a guitarist and composer who works with many styles of music. He has written a series of one handed piano pieces, and donated them to the charities The Stroke Association and Help for Heroes, in the hope that they would be beneficial to those who do not have full use of both hands.

  • Solar Pessimist - John Lawrence

    8th November 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 5:30 pm

    Collaborating with actor Peter Hugo Daly and Berlin-based musician Tim Eve The Solar Pessimist combines a performed spoken-word monologue with a cyclical, rhythmic soundscape.

    Shifting between speculative ‘pub chat’ and philosophical diatribe, our guiding voice becomes distracted, his thoughts distorted through the joint lenses of conspiracy theory, new-agism and that of the self-righteous contemporary consumer.

    Within this meandering thought-process are propositions about what best to be doing at the end of the world, how zero-gravity pornography will affect us all and… if the sun is a conscious being… what happens when he starts talking back?

    John Lawrence (b.1981, UK) lives and works in Nottingham.

    Mining a contemporary archive of images, footage, formats and references – and working across a wide-range of approaches incorporating large-scale video installation, sound, digital print, writing, live performance and publishing – Lawrence actively questions how we communicate ideas through the production and dissemination of cultural objects, and how mediated experiences of the world can impact on what could be described as a ‘collective psyche’.

    Lawrence previously studied at the Royal Academy Schools, London, and is currently Lecturer in Fine Art at both Kingston University and the University of Lincoln.

  • Nothing Like Us Ever Was - Gregory Whitehead

    8th November 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 6:30 pm

    Radio performance based on Carl Sandburg’s Four Preludes to the Playthings of the
    Wind, with vocalist Laura Wiens.

    Gregory Whitehead is the creator of more than one hundred radio plays, essays
    and acoustic adventures for the BBC, Radio France, Deutschland Radio, Australia’s
    ABC, NPR and others. Often interweaving documentary and fictive materials into
    playfully unresolved narratives, Whitehead's aesthetic is distinguished by a deep
    philosophical commitment to radio as a medium for poetic navigation and free
    association. In his voice and text-sound works, he explores the tension between a
    continuous breath/pulse and the eruption of chaotic discontinuities, as well as
    exploring rhythms of linguistic entropy and decay.

    desperadophilosophy.net

    Laura Wiens is a Pittsburgh-based vocalist and composer, most recently performing
    with RML Jazz and the big band The Jazz Conspiracy, and previously at Little E's Jazz
    club heading the Laura Wiens Quartet. Laura has sung on two previous radio dramas
    by Gregory Whitehead, "The Day King Hammer Fell from the Sky" and "Bring Me the
    Head of Philip K Dick", both broadcast on BBC Radio 4. She has fronted blues and funk
    bands as far away as Belgrade, Serbia, and closer to home in West Virginia and
    Washington DC. Her own eclectic music compositions can be found and downloaded
    at http://www.purevolume.com/aurallaura

    Carl Sandburg was born on January 6, 1878, in Galesburg, Illinois. He fought in the
    Spanish-American War. In 1913, he moved to Chicago to work as a journalist. In 1914,
    his poetry was published in Poetry magazine. His well-received free verse poetry
    focused on American workers. He also collected folksongs into books and wrote a
    Pulitzer Prize-winning biography about Abraham Lincoln.

  • The Diluted Hours - Magali Daniaux and Cédric Pigot

    8th November 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 7:30 pm

    With The diluted Hours, we are plunged in the heart/body of the artists’ seismic intentionality: the symbolical and aesthetic mutation of fantastical Sci-Fi becoming the demiurge of the wreckage of our time. A prophetic announcement of the cataclysm – far from being morbid, it radiates a spectrum of imaginary possibilities for our future struggles. But where there is a danger, what can save us also grows. The dissection of our ills becomes the mirror of a new body the audience will have to build like insolent architects.

    Since they met in 2001, the Magali Daniaux and Cédric Pigot’s joint work bears the dual hallmark of experimentation and performance. Their pieces bring together various media, associating elements from opposite ranges, with a taste for connections between Sci-Fi and documentary forms, high-tech engineering and fantasy tales, heavyweight materials and fleeting sensations. Starting with installations and objects, their work soon included experimental actions and more immaterial artistic gestures. Videos, sound art, music, poetry, olfactive research, virtual works bordering the digital arts have formed, over the past years, a cycle of works dealing with climate change, economic, political and geo-strategic issues, urban development and food management. They are currently working in Alaska on land art projects dealing with time, archaeology, geology and climate change.

    Their work was shown in leading institutions and festivals : Terminal B, in kirkenes - Norway, in 2017, Cosmoscow, in moscow in 2017, festival acce)s(, in Pau, 2016, Musée du Jeu de Paume in Paris in 2014, Venice Biennial of Architecture in Italy in 2014, Barents Spektakel in 2013 in Norway, Ultima Festival, at Oslo Opera in 2011, Palais de Tokyo in Paris in 2011, Qui Vive International Biennial in Moscow in 2010 and Dashanzi Art Festival in Beijing in 2004

    Pt2 - Idle Jack Returns to The Work Bureau (spitting brine and feathers) - from 10:58 onwards

    A 30 min audio journey at walking, stumbling and snuffling pace. The Piece is seen through the trials and tribulations of a deceased welfare claimant ghoul. Channelled through the (meth) spirit network... and communicated through a fictional”in house” radio station at the Social/DSS etc... The Derelict site of this welfare place long gone/closed down since the 1980s was built on the site of an ancient burial ground of bumped off skivers/conscious objectors, the inflicted and the ergophobic. It’s told through the eyes of 1920s fella who is tipped off by a blind beggar that it's better to dole it then work , and there in this poor sucker see the light. He then takes a journey of discovery and is in/out of many jobs for maybe a day at a time. Stuck In the cyst of slime and swimming in ectoplasm. Bouncing back and forth in vapour space-time to and fro the work bureau/DSS. Still confused about which path to bumble/walk/transcend or even copulate...

  • An Inland Population: A Susquehannock Symphonic Poem - Jimmy The Peach and ferrie = differentieel

    8th November 2017 @ 9:00 pm - 9:45 pm

    If the people united never could be defeated why did the Susquehanna People disappear? This question that keeps me busy for a long time until Jimmy and I did one of our many videochats. He was intriqued also by the role of the Europeans in this phenomenon - the French, the Dutch, the Swedes, and the English.

    After an intensive research Jimmy wrote a balanced story about the Susquehanna People while i did an interpreation of an interpretation by Frederic Rzewski who I greatly admire. The music in this project is based on 15 of the 36 variations in different forms and interpretations - with unusual combinations of instruments and music styles - from classical to electronic music - from concert hall to intimate studio. This Symphonic Poem leaves room for the imagination of the listener to create his or her own story about the Susquehanna People.

  • Millionth - James Chinneck

    8th November 2017 @ 9:45 pm - 10:30 pm

    The sound work "Millionth" was constructed simply by using a telephone and audio recording equipment. I systematically recorded individuals saying the word 'hello' when they first answered the telephone. I charted my telephonic journey through 227 different countries working on a ratio of 1:1000000 to condense the worlds population to just 6348 people. Each individual "hello" has then been edited into a sequence in which every country appears in descending order of population size one after the other, resulting in a 43 minute audio track.

    James Chinneck was born in Hertfordshire, England in 1973. He currently lives and works in West Yorkshire, England. He studied at Leeds Metropolitan University. His most recent work Tueri Terram has been shown at Tate Britain, London (2015), and solo exhibitions include Wish You Were Here?, Leeds City Art Gallery (West Yorkshire, England, 1997); Americanenglish, Joseph Gross Gallery (Tucson, Arizona USA, 1999); Rice Fall, Sculpture Space (Utica, New York, 2000); and Trust Me I’m An Artist, Leeds Metropolitan University Gallery, (West Yorkshire, 2003).

  • different time different place different pitch:Five Broken Microphones - Dani Gal & Achim Lengerer

    9th November 2017 @ 1:00 am - 2:00 am

    Miriam Schikler recorded sound fragments from the reality of state violence against
    Palestinians in the West Bank as means of activism and music making.

    A series of radio programs By Dani Gal and Achim Lengerer. Originally commissioned by Documenta 14.

    The radio is an acousmatic instrument. Listeners do not see the origin of the sound,
    their experience is shaped both by the their own interpretation, and the manipulation
    of the producer in a political system.

    Our programs work on the space between documentary and Musique concrète.
    Each show focuses on political events that are connected to acoustic events. This
    creates an acousmatic documentary where the programs become sound-objects.
    The programs response to the 'image saturated society' discourse, by asking what is
    the function of sound as a document in times of live video feeds that can be broadcast
    by anyone.

    Dani Gal (born 1975, Jerusalem) lives and works in Berlin. He studied at the Bezalel
    Academy for Art and Design in Jerusalem; the Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende
    Künste Städelschule in Frankfurt; and the Cooper Union in New York. His flms and
    works have been shown widely, including: Documenta 14, 54th Venice Biennale

  • Commence Exuding The Opaque Vapour - Barry Burns

    9th November 2017 @ 2:00 am - 7:00 am

    For the last five years I have taken a sample from every video I watch on my laptop. As a tip of the hat to William Burroughs and Robert Anton Wilson I take the sample from the 23rd minute. Each sample is arranged and layered chronologically, constructing an aleatory narrative, a random DJ mix of dialogue, music and foley, a self portrait of viewing habits and memory. VHS rips merge with Blu Ray restorations, youtube binges mingle with abandoned box sets.

    Barry Burns is not the bloke out of Mogwai, its a different, unsuccessful one. He is the co-manager of Radiophrenia and has used his immense power to give himself the highly coveted 5am slot.

  • Radiaphiles: Radio Grenouille

    9th November 2017 @ 7:00 am - 7:45 am

    Here we speak to Marianne Crousillac and Jean-Baptiste Imbert of Radio Grenouille in Marseille in France.

    Mobile Radio offer an overview of independent and not-for-profit community, ‘free’, campus, and pirate stations who provide a wealth of material and perspectives outside of the mainstream media orthodoxy. This series constitutes a major retrospective of the work of the radio art network Radia, whose collective mission is to make radio that transcends the borders and boundaries of land and language. Mobile Radio visit each station in turn to discern their motives and inspirations, and explore the work of one of their associated artists. Produced with support from Goethe Institut.

  • Alan Courtis - Concept Bongo II

    9th November 2017 @ 7:45 am - 8:00 am

    "Concept Bongo"'s completely minimal logic is not exhausted in the fact that it is an album that is only played with bongos. Because beyond this conception, the music we find in its thirty minutes is characterized by a mystagogic feeling which, through an abstracted and repetitive ambience, keeps you totally transfixed, marginally helpless to react to it. References to the musical culture of the percussion instruments are stimuli left to the listener's own discretion: you can understand "Concept Bongo" as raw material for spiritual escapees, study it as pure improvisation or regard it as an exercise on style, even. Anla Courtis has studied classical guitar, piano, theory and composition, but here he plays the role of the abstract percussionist, with all the rhythmic liberties of a contemporary improviser. "Concept Bongo" is like one of Zeitkratzer's dreams for the organic performance of electronic music, with Pauline Oliveiros' spirit being unable to escape the studio. And now I know what I will be listening to after Jon Mueller's "Metals" or Paal Nilsen-Love's "Cut and Bleed".

    Anla Courtis is a key figure of contemporary avant garde. He began in 1993 in Buenos Aires, co-creating Reynols, an experimental band in which he played the electric guitar, with which he released more than 100 vinyls and cassettes. A small number compared to the huge volume of his personal releases, as well as his collaborations with over two hundred artists of the experimental sound.

    2. Gregory Kramer - Barbed Wire V

    Barbed Wire V is a selection from Barbed Wire, an album of soundworks composed from barbed wire fence recordings I made while in the bushveld of the Limpopo province, South Africa.

    Gregory Kramer is a multidisciplinary artist working with sound and space. Taking inspiration from his archaeological curiosity of abandoned places and his interest in mythology, he searches for ghosts among the ruins and seeks to unearth evidence of forgotten histories through sound. His sound work uses field recordings, found materials, electronics, instruments and radio transmissions. His work was featured in the Sonom International Sound Art Festival, and he recently composed for a dance piece performed at the Setia Darma Museum of Masks and Puppetry in Bali. He has album releases on Impulsive Habitat and International Winners.

    3. Alexis Weaver - The Odd Forest

    The limits of the stereo sound space are explored from bottom to top in this peculiar landscape, created from the sound of a child’s wind-up unicorn toy and the carols of wild synths. The listener is dropped into an otherworldly forest which is alive and seething with fast-moving creatures; friend or foe, you never can tell… This piece is part of a larger suite of works drawing on the sounds of childhood toys.

    Alexis Weaver is a young electroacoustic composer based in Sydney, Australia. Growing up close to the pristine beaches and landscapes of Jervis Bay, Alexis is fascinated by sounds of the natural world. By fusing her classical education with music technology, Alexis aims to create powerful abstract works and bring the wonder of sound to new audiences.

    Alexis has composed soundtracks for animation, short stories, radio, and the Sydney Fringe Festival. Recently, her acousmatic and radiophonic works have been broadcast overseas in France and Scotland. Alexis was awarded First Place and People’s Choice Award in the 2016 and 2015 University of Sydney Verge Awards respectively for her acousmatic works. Alexis’ 2017 work, Spin, will be included on RMN Classical’s upcoming album, Electroacoustic and Beyond Volume 2.

    4. Hoagy Houghton - Radio Photographs

    Like so many of us, Hoagy Houghton has a compulsive, and at times, perplexing need to take photographs. In a bid to understand why he is seemingly so dependent on the visual image, Hoagy has removed the image itself from his photography, presenting an ongoing exhibition of observations and interpretations to photograph’s he has taken. Here, Cody Lee Barbour, Joel Cox and Aimee Elizabeth Skelton take on the task of describing three of these photos. It is Hoagy’s intention to give the listener creative freedom in viewing each image and to encourage them to consider their own engagement with imagery and sound.

    Hoagy Houghton is a London based artist, interested in understanding the poetics of the senses.

    Cody Lee Barbour has a fondness of soft drinks & spaghetti with the aim of inspiring fuzzy heads. Currently working & writing words in the UK after a warm sabbatical in Perth.
    Joel Cox is a radio producer, musician and co-creator of the podcast London Compass Radio. He lives in Glasgow.

    Aimee Elizabeth Skelton grew up in Falkirk and now lives in Glasgow, where she works in a soap shop. She holds a BA in English from the University of Strathclyde, and was the winner of the 2016 Peggy Grant Award for her dissertation on sound poetry. She has been performing her own poetry around Glasgow since the age of 16, and has been published in journals in Scotland and Canada. She is currently involved in a project with Paisley Pen & Paper facilitating free creative writing workshops for mental wellbeing.

    5. Blake Degraw - Triple Quartet

    Electronic Duodecet for Humans is a four-movement recording experiment conceptualized, executed, and recorded by Blake DeGraw. It explores reaction as a generative device. Each movement contains twelve overdubbed layers of the performer listening and reacting to aural stimuli that only he can hear (through headphones). The nature of the performer’s interactions with these stimuli changes with each four movements, ranging from harmonization to gestural imitation to direct mimicry.

    Blake DeGraw is a composer, performer, bandleader, and sound-installation artist currently residing in Seattle, WA. He studied euphonium performance at the Las Vegas Academy of Performing Arts, and currently studies modern composition at Cornish College of the Arts. He is the director and conductor of FHTAGN, an experimental chamber ensemble that focuses on extremes in spatial dispersion, as well as indeterminacy operations, free improvisation, and alternative forms of conduction within those extremes. DeGraw is also the co-founder of Plancklength, a sound-art collective that explores interactive sound production through installation work and instrument creation.

    6. Harry Moore - Bells of Verdelaise

    Walking in France into the Bordeaux region I entered Verdelaise as the call to mass bells rang out, resonating off the stone walled town. I could physically feel the sound waves as I sat and recorded them, this treatment is my interpretation of the experience and includes some of the raw untreated recording.

    7. Amanda Johnson - On High Wheeldon

    Composed by Buxton Museum’s artist in residence, Amanda Johnson, for their new gallery opening in September 2017, The Hindlow Lion Suite consists of four electro-acoustic pieces for stringed instruments and recorded environmental sounds. Inspired by the Cave lion bones in Buxton Museum’s collection, the composer uses ancient cave lion DNA to inform the music. The pieces were recorded in Foxhole Cave in the Peak District National Park, Derbyshire, where ice age cave lion bones have been found.

    With thanks to Arts Council England, Buxton Museum, Heritage Lottery Fund, The National Trust, Sound and Music and The British Library sound archive.

    Recent recipient of the Francis Chagrin award Amanda Johnson is a composer and violinist fast gaining a reputation for work made in response to museum collections. In recent years she has worked with the British Music Collection, the National Trust, Nottingham Trent University, Sheffield Cathedral, the National Coal Mining Museum and is she currently composer in residence here at Buxton Museum.

    After a classical training, Amanda played in a number of orchestras and chamber groups. In recent years her practice has moved towards composition, her work combining traditional composition, digital sounds and live performance, often derived from data or patterns.

    2. Kala Pierson – Chikatilo Arc

    Chikatilo Arc comes from my work making audio for an experimental play in which the actors spoke only source texts (or slightly modified source texts) by the subjects of the play. One subject was Andrei Chikatilo, a serial killer who lived in mid-20th-century Ukraine. In this piece, the sound sources are actor Dan Maccarone portraying Young Chikatilo; a processed “Shh” sound; and Ilya Temkin playing bandura, a Ukrainian lute.

    Kala Pierson is an American composer and sound artist. Vivid, expressive, and full of bold colors, her music has been performed in more than 30 countries on six continents, widely awarded and commissioned, and published by Universal Edition. She's held season-long composer residencies with American Opera Projects, Tribeca Performing Arts Center, and San Francisco Choral Artists. With deep interests in non-western musics, she's initiated many cross-cultural projects. Born in 1977, she studied composition at Eastman School of Music and now lives in Philadelphia with her spouses and son.

    3. Josh Carro - [[[man muzzle]]]

    [man muzzle] is an audio representation of our perceived processing of time. involving the audio documentation of field recordings of Los Angeles which can be anything that exists in the time bound space perception, i am connecting the sound documentation of the landscape into an art work that represents time in it’s most natural perceivable form.

    josh carro (b. 1982-) is a multimedia artist who works with simple materials, complex sound processing, and noise. Based in Los Angeles, carro started a disciplined practice in percussion at an early age and became obsessed with visual art, metal music, jazz, percussion, electronic, recording, and experimental music composition. carro has performed in countless spaces and recordings across the U.S., Canada, and Europe with sound work performances and commissions by The Futurist Intoners in The Cleveland Museum of Art, Singapore Art Science Center, Laurie Anderson, Rat Bastard, Ehnahre, Blood Oath, UC Berkeley Cellist Ensemble, Wild Rumpus, What’s Next? Ensemble, Now Hear Ensemble, Ulrich Krieger, Vicki Ray, and Susan Allen. As a recording artist, carro has recorded his and many other works at Capitol Records, T.V. Stand Studios and has released multiple electro-acoustic albums on labels including: XI Records, H.L.M., Somehow Recordings, Vent, and Ephem-Aural.

    4. Kevin Logan - The Sounding of Plastic and Paper

    This is a mumbling examination of the deliberate crushing crumpling of a plastic water bottle which has become a stock device in my recent presentations. It is often the first act or action that I engage when taking my place behind a speaker’s podium, or other such staged space.

    It is intended to set a register for what is about to happen. This obstinate-object sounding is a slightly uncomfortable ‘doing’. Its role is a comedic misplacement, a slightly subversive and almost unhiemlich deed. As a rule, the cheaper and less reputable the brand of bottled
    Kevin Logan is a Manchester born artist based in London, UK. His work embraces cross-disciplinary fields and incorporates installation, sound, moving-image and performance. He has exhibited and performed internationally, had audio-visual works screened in festivals worldwide, and had sound works on compilation CDs.

    He is currently a part-time PhD candidate with the research organisation CRiSAP (Creative Research into Sound Arts Practice), University of the Arts London. This practice-led research explores the sonic through mediation, performance, and pedagogic and curatorial outcomes. His theoretical and experimental texts have been published in print and online, and he presents regularly at conferences and symposia.

    5. Kamen Ivanov Nedev (a.k.a Acoustic Mirror) - Ghostwalk 02 - Estépar

    "Ghostwalk 02 - Estépar" is based on field recordings made in Monte de Estépar, in the Spanish Province of Burgos, in July 2017. Monte de Estépar is a beautiful small holm oak forest, and is also the site where 327 citizens were assassinated by Franco's Regime during the Spanish Civil War, and were buried in a series of common graves.

    Ghostwalks is a series of works which explore the relationship between soundscape, historical memory, and public space. The locations are usually important sites of memory, and the work mines the in/audible spectrum of sound captured in these locations.

    Kamen Nedev is a sound artist, flâneur, and independent cultural producer. Since 1986 he works and tries to live in Madrid, Spain. Under the Acoustic Mirror moniker, since 2005 he has been working on a line of research in phonography, sound art, and radio art, with an emphasis on the soundscape of urban space as well as social sound production, situated listening, and militant sound investigation.

  • Tapping The Air - Sebastiane Hegarty

    9th November 2017 @ 9:30 am - 10:00 am

    This work results from an unofficial residency and covert micro FM transmission at The Lizard Wireless Telegraphy Station, Cornwall: site of the first ‘over-the-horizon’ wireless communication by Marconi in 1901.

    The work draws on field-recordings from a local landscape haunted by the architecture of listening and communication: the looming pulse of the Lizard Lighthouse foghorn, the automatic Morse of loose wires and antennas at Poldhu (site of the first trans-Atlantic wireless transmission). The piece opens with the di-di-dit, of Marconi’s test signal as performed on the station building and a derelict radar room at RAF Pen Oliver.

    Sebastiane Hegarty is an artist, writer and lecturer. His practice explores the relationship between time, place and sensation, primarily through field-recording and soundscape composition. His work has been exhibited and broadcast across the UK and Europe: It’s Eating You, (IMT Gallery, London, 2015), and Heliocemtra, (Museum Punta della Dogana, Venice, 2016). In 2015 he curated the multidisciplinary conference, Chalk: time, sense landscape. More recently he contributed to the Sound of Memory symposium at Goldsmiths, London (2017). Published through Impulsive Habitat, Gruenrekorder and Very Quiet Records, works for radio include, It’s Just Where I Put My Words, (BBC Radio 3, 2013).

     


  • different time different place different pitch: The Biennale is Fascist - Dani Gal & Achim Lengerer

    9th November 2017 @ 10:00 am - 10:45 am

    The Student Movement of Venice tried to sabotage the 1968 Biennale while David
    Lamelas was changing the system from within. With David Lamelas and Ciara di
    Steffano.

    A series of radio programs By Dani Gal and Achim Lengerer. Originally commissioned by Documenta 14.

    The radio is an acousmatic instrument. Listeners do not see the origin of the sound,
    their experience is shaped both by the their own interpretation, and the manipulation
    of the producer in a political system.

    Our programs work on the space between documentary and Musique concrète.
    Each show focuses on political events that are connected to acoustic events. This
    creates an acousmatic documentary where the programs become sound-objects.
    The programs response to the 'image saturated society' discourse, by asking what is
    the function of sound as a document in times of live video feeds that can be broadcast
    by anyone.

    Dani Gal (born 1975, Jerusalem) lives and works in Berlin. He studied at the Bezalel
    Academy for Art and Design in Jerusalem; the Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende
    Künste Städelschule in Frankfurt; and the Cooper Union in New York. His flms and
    works have been shown widely, including: Documenta 14, 54th Venice Biennale
    (2011), The Istanbul Biennale (2011), The New Museum New York (2012),
    Kunsthalle St. Gallen Swizerland (2013), The Jewish museum New York (2014),
    Berlinale Forum Expanded (2014), Kunsthaus Zurich (2015) Kunsthalle Wien (2015)
    And more.

  • Surfacing underneath you sea asu lapis - Nika Son

    9th November 2017 @ 10:45 am - 11:00 am

    Trying to imagine being underneath a liquid that we call water while clutching to a metal ledge of a big concrete building with air in my lungs. Sensing water in your ears and eyes. Being split by water. Thoughts astray. Algaic groaning gulping machines touching the liquid surface. Outer voices uttering in displaced languages. Who are you I am? Sinking. Waves floating over and under. Listening to antarctic krill that sway to and fro. Emerging. Walking over oceanic noise, turning the page. Your ears on surfaces.

    Nika Son is an artist, musician and dj living in Hamburg, Germany. Influenced by Musique Concrète and the outer space of electronic music, her compositions are built from manipulated and fragmented fieldrecordings, interweaving with analogue synth lines, knocking radiowaves, rare voice scraps and filtered tape layers. Various releases on differing labels, like Mmodemm, VIS, Sky Walking, Anti-Ghost Moon Ray and her own label Noctui. Her newest collaborative project is called C with the musician F#X. In her work as a sound artist for experimental film, she’s been collaborating with many artists over the years, foremost with the film maker Helena Wittmann.

  • The Buffer Zone - with guests Sister Collective and Glasgow Clyde College

    9th November 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

    (1) Ralph Lewis - Fearless Reception: What Was The Hardest Part

    (2) WE ARE THE SAME, WE ARE THE WORLD is an audio collage made up of every day sounds and interviews, intertwined with sounds from a range of countries and cultures. It features members of the 16+ programme at Glasgow Clyde College - the only one of its kind in Scotland, aimed at supporting unaccompanied young asylum seekers and refugees from a range of backgrounds and countries. It is a specialist ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) course which incorporates creative arts, outdoor learning and extensive guidance. This year’s class, with an age range of 16-19, is made up of 22 young people who speak over 10 different languages. They have come together with the creative collective SISTER, to produce their own radio work for Radiophrenia, inspired by and featuring sounds of their home countries and what they hear in their new home of Glasgow.

    Those taking part are: Abel, Sabrina, Yacob, Sarah, Senait and Kokob from Eritrea; Ahmed from Sudan; Burhan and Rahima from Ethiopia; Ming, Jie and Ling from China; Vero and Neron from Congo; Yacoub from Kuwait; Huong, Hoang and Cuong from Vietnam; Farid and Ishanullah from Afghanistan; Sharjeel from Pakistan; and Sarkawt from Iraq.

    SISTER are a creative collective formed by Cass Ezeji and Siobhain Ma. Their work primarily explores the experiences and challenges facing mixed race Scottish women, along with questions of identity and establishing a connection with their respective backgrounds (Nigeria, Hong Kong, Ireland and Scotland) from a distance.

    Produced by Siobhain Ma and Cass Ezeji.
    (17:37)

    (3) Ralph Lewis - Fearless Reception: What is Reception Like Today? (06:39)

    These two selected movements from “Fearless Reception” feature different iterations of Ileana Merary’s musical creativity, storytelling, and advocacy. In “What Was the Hardest Part,” Merary’s recorded interview is gently processed and is accompanied by a live, indeterminate violin part. In Merary’s version of “What is Reception Like Today,” she and Rogue Trio use Ralph Lewis’s composition as a platform to combine Merary’s poetic text about a tense encounter with police and a song she composed about remaining calm in the face of the anxiety these experiences.

    Fearless Reception is a series of pieces explicitly designed to inhabit radio and concert spaces as it aims to raise up immigration narratives from Arizona and promote inclusivity in our country. It is a collaboration between the Rogue Trio, singer/composer Ileana Merary, the Florence Project (www.firrp.org), and composer Ralph Lewis. Earlier performances/broadcasts have included support from Slate Arts Gallery, The Herberger Institute of Design and the Arts, WEFT 90.1-FM, and WGXC 90.7-FM.

  • The Great Western Road - Luke Fowler & Richard McMaster

    9th November 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

    A collaborative sound/photo work by Luke Fowler and Richard McMaster. Starting at sunrise on Saturday 9th September 2017 Fowler and McMaster walked the length of one of Glasgow's oldest and longest Roman roads; Great Western Road (GWR). Beginning at St. George's X they made timed 1minute recordings, every 7 minutes, until they reached a point (near Old Kilpatrick) where it became too dangerous to continue on foot. Using identical location mixers and the same Mid-Side microphone configurations- McMaster walked and recorded on one side of the road whilst Fowler recorded on the other. They both recorded as prompted and by the agreed fixed structure- with no plan or anticipation of capturing any specific sound events besides the road itself. The two discreet, yet synchronised recordings are then brought together in the editing process and panned hard left and right to create a wide stereo image of the road's soundscape on that day. The Great Western Road documents the city slowly awakening and traverses a cross-section of neighbourhoods and terrains from St. George's X and Kelvinbridge to Anniesland and Duntocher. It crosses the River Kelvin and passes alongside Botanical Gardens and Gartnavel Hospital before reaching the A82 motorway. The Great Western Road is a major route for commercial traffic and also the means for the citiy's' inhabitants to escape on daytrips to Loch Lomond and beyond.

    Richard McMaster is an artist/musician – he lives and works in Glasgow (UK).
    Luke Fowler is a filmmaker/musician – he lives and works in Glasgow (UK).

    1. Reuben Telushkin - 2067

    2067 is a 15-minute sound piece dealing with the theme of the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Detroit Rebellion. Weaving samples, speech clips, sound effects, into news reports into a single sonic narrative, the piece explores what has changed and what hasn't in the 50 years since the rebellion, and looks 50 years into the future to imagine a future in which liberation has taken place.

    Reuben Telushkin is a sound and visual artist based in Detroit, MI. He builds interactive electronic music installations utilizing tangible interaction and rapid prototyping technology. Reuben's work is an exploration of the convergence of time and space in number, using sound and geometry to illuminate those connections. Much of Reuben's work is concerned with the role of technology in Black popular culture.

    2. Vincent Eoppolo - Self Portrait 2017

    I view my works as a synthesis of various sound art traditions including musique concrete, acousmatic music and radio art.

    In my work I strive to present brief moments of the world we are living in. Society in the continuing process of realizing itself. Our relationship with each other, with technology, our morality, spirituality, sexuality, our anxieties and fears. In many ways my works are like sociological and psychological commentaries. My work has been featured on Bernard Clarke's program Nova on RTE's Lyric FM, Phaune Radio from Montpellier, France as well as Radio Art International on CHOQ Radio in Montreal. My works were recently presented at the 2017 New York City Electro-Acoustic Music Festival.

    3. Garrett Tiedemann - Last Thursday (in Fragments) - Season Preview - Quote Me

    In 2015 Don Chambers hosted "a music and other things entertainment" each month called The Last Thursday. Each month had its own theme and governed not only the types of content, but way of presentation for the evening. These evenings lived and died in the moment with very little social media promotion or archiving.
    In series 2 of The White Whale we offer snippets of these evenings; providing first glimpses beyond the nights of what went down and why their existence foregoing online permanence is important. Visit http://www.donchambersmusic.com/ for music and more.

    Garrett Tiedemann is a radio producer, journalist, filmmaker and composer. He works for American Public Media covering the breadth and depth of composed music for YourClassical and Classical Minnesota Public Radio while also producing films, music videos, music and the podcast The White Whale via his production company CyNar Pictures. As a freelancer, he has lent production and compositional approaches to the podcasts Vanishing Ink, Here Be Monsters, The Organist, ARRVLS, Life of the Law, and Top Score. Additionally, he manages production and strategy for the oral history/storytelling project SisterStory.

    4. Barry Burns - when my husband dreams

    Found reel to reel tape.

    5. Martin Heslop and Helen Tookey – Jitties

    These three tracks, Jitties, Beautiful Error and Glasshouse, are part of an ongoing collaboration between poet Helen Tookey and composer Martin Heslop. While the original texts use fragmentation to try to convey a particular experience – a sense of the language sliding, piling up, or of a mind going over and over a question – the fixed, written work can only create this effect to a limited extent. Here, the words are cut and spliced, repeated and layered to make the language move and track over itself, while the soundbeds pulse and shimmer, creating a texture of volatility and urgency.

    Helen Tookey is a poet based in Liverpool. Her debut collection Missel-Child (Carcanet, 2014) was shortlisted for the Seamus Heaney first collection prize. Her pamphlet In the Glasshouse was published by HappenStance Press in 2016, and the CD/booklet If You Put Out Your Hand, a collaboration with musician Sharron Kraus, was released by Wounded Wolf Press in 2016.

    Martin Heslop is a composer and writer based in Newcastle. He has written scores and lyrics for short and full-length theatre shows and film, and has worked on many collaborations with poets, playwrights and visual artists for live performances, recordings and installations.

    6. Valery Mikromedas - OGLE-2005-BLG-390Lb_08

    Mikromedas is a data-driven musical project in which compositions are elaborated using data from space, deep space and numerical simulation models related to various astrophysical phenonoma. Compositions in the project are produced using source material that consists of sampled (live) radio astronomical data (e.g. data as recorded by several spacecrafts such as Voyager1, Voyager or registered data emitted by various pulsar stars which is over 22000 years old), observed and simulated numerical astrophysical data streams turned into sounds using newly developed sonification techniques.

    Dr. Valery Vermeulen is an electronic musician, mathematician, new media artist, author and visiting professor at the Art & Technology dep at Erasmus University College in Brussels (BE). He holds a Phd in pure mathematics from Ghent University (BE) as well as a masters degree in Music Composition at the Royal Conservatory of Ghent (BE). Since 2003 Vermeulen has been working on various multimedia projects where the interaction between man, machine and mathematics plays a central role. His work covers a broad range of disciplines including generative art, algorithmic music composition, (generative) sound synthesis, affective computing, astrophysics and data sonification.

    7. Rolando Frias - Musa de asfalto

    Produced in 2002 by Alejandra Tapia and Rolando Frías
    Spanish Language. Sound experimentation of poems related about to life in big cities. Quito, capital of Ecuador, brings stories of different authors who in short poetry expose the daily life of the streets, homes, environments and passing the days surrounded by the cold cement in which they live.

    Audio producer born in Ecuador, during my professional career I was involved in the creation and coordination of cultural and musical events. As a sound engineer I was involved in a few recording projects in close cooperation with Ecuadorian hip hop and rock alternative stage. My interest in music and my profession as a sound engineer was closely connected to my involvement in social and community projects. I am a board member of an NGO working in the defence and wellbeing of Amazonian rainforest. I was the creator and coordinator of the festival Amazonia Indomable.

    8. Paco Dvoi - Purest State

    "Purest State" explores the way in which a person can desire to escape into a rural environment but yet be mentally trapped in an urban reality. With a touch of humour, this spoken word piece highlights the kind of conditioning that can make a person prefer elevators, drug stores, and internet love, over nudity in nature and the joy of peeing from an ancient tree “while high on fragrant breeze”.

    Between 2001 and 2007, Paco Dvoi fronted Chilean rock band Toximetro, performing in dresses and ripped stockings while singing mainly in English. The band released an EP titled Euphoproctox: EP Infusion. In 2007, Paco returned to Toronto where he completed a B. Ed. and wrote songs on an acoustic guitar. In 2012, he released a solo album titled Shades of Dysphoria. In 2015, Paco released Morphogenesis, songs and spoken word featuring a variety of guest musicians. Paco Dvoi’s work is poetically-inspired and reflects light and darkness in its incisive portrayal of people and situations rooted in an imperfect world.

  • Cuyo - Ludwig Berger

    9th November 2017 @ 3:45 pm - 4:00 pm

    Steppes, deserts, and high mountains dominate the region of Cuyo in west Argentina. The fragile water infrastructure forms an audible contrast in this barren landscape, creating fertile valleys and oases, rich with vegetation. The condensed soundscape moves between these extremes of "naturally dry" and "artificially wet". The silent landscape elements were articulated through improvisation on site: hunks of earth fly through canyons, ebbing water crackles across salt deserts, small wood chips fall on cactuses, sand trickles down heaps of metal. All composed sounds are unprocessed (except gentle equalization).

    Ludwig Berger is a composer, sound artist and research associate at Institute of Landscape Architecture of ETH Zurich (Switzerland). He is currently interested in absences, acoustics, alphabets, amplifications, architectures, cartographies, collectivities, darknesses, dissolutions, glaciers, infraordinaries, memories, microphonies, presences, psychogographies, radiophonies, teleperceptions, temporalities, thing-powers, transects, walks and winds.

  • The Midshipman - Joe Harney

    9th November 2017 @ 4:20 pm - 4:40 pm

    'The Midshipman' is a short, narrated prose set to sound. It tells the story of two survivors of a shipwreck, stuck on a narrow lifeboat, adrift on the ocean. The language is unforgiving, harsh, malevolent. The soundscore, veering between overtly musical elements and impressionistic noise, tracks the psychological journey of the narrator. This work is intended for stage production in 2018, with this edit version existing specifically for the medium of radio.

    Joe Harney is an Irish musician, composer and sound designer, based in Edinburgh; Nicholas Kavanagh, an Irish stage actor based in Waterford, Ireland. Kate A Wright, a Welsh writer based in London. Joe and Nicholas have collaborated many times on stage productions of new theatre works. They both loved the short story from Kate, and decided to attempt to bring its unsettling lyricism to life in sound.

  • LENGHEDIVACJE Ep.2 - Renato Rinaldi

    9th November 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 5:30 pm

    Ten stories for the radio – Five collected stories elaborated into five sound tales

    Project by Renato Rinaldi Production and organisation by Hybrida
    Pieces by Slavek Kwi - Eric la casa - Antje Vowinckel - Ward Weis - Giuseppe Ielasi Funded by Arlef / Agjenzie Regjonâl pe Lenghe Furlane
    Aired by Frioulian local Radio Onde Furlane

    Language is a sound, before being a meaning, and it’s the first human element in a soundscape. The stories have then been selectet according to the ability of the teller in using the language in a dramatic way more than for the stories themselves. For each story we have commissioned a music piece in which the recorded tale had to be the core of the composition. Such transformation could only be possible in the hands of people who doesn’t have access to the meaning of the words. That is why we have chosen musicians the furthest away possible from Friulian geography, culture and language so as to have them relate with a new, as far as this is possible today, sound context.

    The title literally means cow tongue but it refers to a edible plant: Rumex patientia, known as patience dock, "garden patience", "herb patience", or "monk's rhubarb", is a herbaceous perennial plant species of the genus Rumex, belonging to the family Polygonaceae. In spring it is often consumed as a leaf vegetable in Southern Europe.

    The Friulian language is a mosaic of units, more often micro-units, territorial, each one with its own linguistic nuances and peculiar sound. The development of such peculiarities is the result of a long and continuous exchange with the environment, which each community entertains while setting its roots in a certain area. Language is a sound, before being a meaning, and it’s the first human element in a soundscape. The project Lenghedivacje endeavours at bringing out the sound of the Friulian language, throughout the collection of recorded material concerning historical or personal events. The stories have then been selected according to the ability of the teller in using the language in a dramatic way more than for the stories themselves. The events told are of course significant also as testimony but are especially extraordinary for the way in which they are “spoken” because they are unique and unique is the language they are using. Inside these stories there is a rich musical potential but in order to bring it out we have pushed the language over the wall of sense. For each story we have commissioned a music piece in which the recorded tale had to be the core of the composition. Such transformation could only be possible in the hands of people who could appreciate exclusively the sound of the language thus deprived of its dramatic element linked to sense. That is why we have chosen musicians the furthest away possible from Friulian geography, culture and language so as to have them relate with a new, as far as this is possible today, sound context. The composers selected for this task are people who routinely work with the sound of language and who use the radio as a means of expression investigating its communication possibilities. Each one of them was asked to work on a music composition starting exclusively form the recorded material assigned to them. The result is a series of compositions created from the phonemes (sound bits) of the Friulian language though enjoyable also away from its understanding.

    Collected tales

    2a - Lidia Dorigo - Interview collected in Caprizzi (UD)
    Halfway between history and legend the village Buarta in the XVIII° century is wiped out by a landslide and is subsequently rebuilt in a different valley by its only survivor.

    Elaborated into 2b - È puis YOU by Eric la casa - (France)

    I don’t normally work with material that has not been recorder by myself because to me the moment I record, the moment I open my ears to the world is of fundamental importance. Listening is already a musical act. The piece which was assigned to me was not particularly interesting except for the extrordinary prosody of a woman whose speach I did not understand (at times I had the illusion I could catch a word). In my approach to the task I had to chose between two options: either go to the place where the recording was made for a dynamic listening, then find a place particular to that person (the acoustic space is fundamental in my work); alternatively I could work towards trying and making the material my own. Afterall the rules imposed were sufficient enough to force me to do what I did not want to do, in fact it would have been impossible for me to go there on my own.
    This is exactly what I needed, be adrift. Someone to push me so as to allow myself to be drifted away by the air and material. I began by studying what was in the voice, moving then to the sound of the breath then to the first syllabs an finally to the words. I organized the material into lists in order to be able to observe the matter I was dealing with, but mainly to have the possibility to re-map (re-assemble) a whole and to find new sound shapes. Every list originates to anumber of multiple vairations, though the list is but a support to the variation, a step in the process of de-materialization of this voice. In this area of improvisation (which is the core of the composition) I began to re-listen to the original material making it my own. The voice in its original space (A) is a sound while it becomes musical fragment in the organized space of the lists (B). The lists are then inserted into “digital” solutions more or less complex and generated from the same raw material.
    The final purpose of all these operations is to “expand” the listening field. I therefore worked in the gap between A and B in order to create a new space where I could position myself together with the listener inwhich what could be understood/perceived of the original sound has been multiplied/expanded/ filtered from the material organized into lists.

    Renato Rinaldi studied acting, composition and electronic music. He has worked extensively in theater, first as an actor and then as a sound artist. As a musician he has composed music for theatre, radio plays and documentaries, video and sound installations. He is interested in composition applied to the relationship between sound /environment. He has also produced radio plays, documentaries and radio reportages, aired by Radio RAI and Radio France.

  • The Great Western Road - Luke Fowler & Richard McMaster

    9th November 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

    A collaborative sound/photo work by Luke Fowler and Richard McMaster. Starting at sunrise on Saturday 9th September 2017 Fowler and McMaster walked the length of one of Glasgow's oldest and longest Roman roads; Great Western Road (GWR). Beginning at St. George's X they made timed 1minute recordings, every 7 minutes, until they reached a point (near Old Kilpatrick) where it became too dangerous to continue on foot. Using identical location mixers and the same Mid-Side microphone configurations- McMaster walked and recorded on one side of the road whilst Fowler recorded on the other. They both recorded as prompted and by the agreed fixed structure- with no plan or anticipation of capturing any specific sound events besides the road itself. The two discreet, yet synchronised recordings are then brought together in the editing process and panned hard left and right to create a wide stereo image of the road's soundscape on that day. The Great Western Road documents the city slowly awakening and traverses a cross-section of neighbourhoods and terrains from St. George's X and Kelvinbridge to Anniesland and Duntocher. It crosses the River Kelvin and passes alongside Botanical Gardens and Gartnavel Hospital before reaching the A82 motorway. The Great Western Road is a major route for commercial traffic and also the means for the citiy's' inhabitants to escape on daytrips to Loch Lomond and beyond.

    Richard McMaster is an artist/musician – he lives and works in Glasgow (UK).
    Luke Fowler is a filmmaker/musician – he lives and works in Glasgow (UK).

  • Shorts 1

    9th November 2017 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm

    1. Ben Glas - Music For An Empty Space
    2. Jaxton Su – Reverse Time
    3. J Diaz - Sic Pilot: Part II
    4. Adam Pierce - The Jay
    5. Bernardo Jimenez/TreesOnComa – The Day After
    6. Hagai Izenberg - Chronicle 4
    7. Chin Ting Chan – Stargaze

    1. Ben Glas - Music For An Empty Space

    "Music For An Empty Space" is the first track on the recently released album titled "Music For An Empty Space And Full Mind" by Ben Glas, via Portland, OR based record label Sounds Et Al. The piece is a spatial composition consisting of sinewaves and focuses on creating a space for perceptive interacting for the pleasure and consideration of each individual listener. This piece acts as a sonic installation, filling each space with new tonal possibilities for a unique listening experience.

    Ben Glas is an interdisciplinary artist working from Portland, OR. With a keen focus on perceptual phenomena and vibration, his work engages notions of relativity, space and spatial modes of experiencing sound. Glas' intent is to offer a time and space for individual listeners to become aware of their experience and existence in spacetime.

    2. Jaxton Su – Dreamscape:Reverse Time

    Dreamscape is an exploration of how sounds in dreams can be translated aurally to form a narrative that could potentially aid in the understanding of the self. It aims to provide the audience with a sonic experience of the artist's self-portrait as told by his dreams.

    Jaxton Su (b. 1988) is a Singaporean Visual Artist, based in Glasgow, UK. He enjoys experimenting with the use of colours in portraying peculiar narratives that delve into the notions of archetypes and the imaginary. Taking inspirations from the natural environment, Jaxton often creates bizarre dreamlike worlds with a whimsical composition of elements to bring across his ideas. Working with a variety of different mediums such as painting and installation, he hopes to create a visual utopia that could form a resonation with others and spark an imagination.

    3. J Diaz - Sic Pilot: Part II

    Sic Pilot: Part II is a work recently released on J Diaz’s debut album, Sic Pilot. The piece unravels deeply seeded racism in the American landscape and combines electronic sounds with spoken word elements--quoting the likes of Langston Hughes, Billie Holiday, Martin Luther King Jr, and Shakespeare. The work also includes police report quotes on recent shootings of American people of color. Sic Pilot: Part II is a plea for justice as much as a tribute to the lives that have been lost.

    J Diaz is a Sound Artist moving to England in September of 2017. He designs sound for a variety of mediums—including theatre, dance, and the concert stage. J's concert music has been performed by The City of Tomorrow, members of Roomful of Teeth, Grammy award winning bassist and Bang on a Can All Star Gregg August, violinists Jennifer Choi and Fung Chern Hwei, pianist Stephen Gosling, and cellist Yves Dharamraj. In May of 2017, J released his debut album of electronic sounds, Sic Pilot. The album explores the national ambiguity in J's Mexican American identity.

    4. Adam Pierce - The Jay

    He once shot a bluejay through the eye, with a ray from the sun
    Turned off he opened his head to the sky, and laughed at the god’s almanac

    My how I remember that day, in the moon’s great equilibrium;
    forests were at every door
    and I’d walk out to the darkening ship.

    Days tallied on, to the months and to the years
    before long, he would bait the jay
    and look to it’s eye
    shifting in the lilting sun.

    Moons would appear, dancing through the neptune blue fields
    once again, praying for something more,
    for the ire of the night sake was too black.

    Found sound, not field recordings. An audio diary of the images, instruments, and nuances of daily life.

    I have been active in the avant garde music community in Michigan, USA for over a decade, as a solo artist and a part of many collectives, releasing numerous recorded works through many different formats and performing on a regular basis across a diverse set of gallery spaces/venues. Over the past year I have been focusing solely on recording a work titled: 'Music in the Moon Beam,' which is an audio diary that began the winter of 2017 and will end the spring of 2018. The audio work will be accompanied by a dream diary compiled over the course of the same time.
    What interests me is recorded music as sound work, to be absorbed across multiple formats and in diverse environments, not restricted to any contemporary preconceptions of audio consumption.

    Works composed primarily with voice, guitar, modular synth, & tape

    5. Bernardo Jimenez/TressOnComa – The Day After

    TreesOnComa begun as a side project to -eLaMoRTe-, in order to release under this tag more experimental sound/instrumental pieces and also to offer visual artists the chance to commission sound works for their creations. reesOnComa has also worked with theatre companies in the past.

    6. Hagai Izenberg - Chronicle 4

    Chronicles is a weekly format of works that attempt to trace the sounds and happenings on a weekly basis and compress them to 4-5 minutes of sonic experience.

    Fresh raw materials were collected every week including field recordings, samples from radio & tv and recordings sent by listeners of RadioArt program by Meira Asher on 106fm, who featured the project.

    It includes 6 episodes (total of 30 minutes) of 6 weeks from Oct 6th till Nov 17th, 2016 and attempts to capture everyday sounds together with the daily news & events, tragedies and political discourse next to advertisements and entertainment.

    Hagai is a sound artist, composer and musician and a founder member of the electronic duo Rendezvous. Born in 1978, he lives and works in Israel. His work focuses on collecting and combining field recordings together with radio broadcasting, using sounds we’re exposed to every day in the public and domestic spheres, often in passing or involuntarily.
    The result is a multi-layered restless composition created in real-time, using pre-recorded sound objects and live sources; a compressed sonic experience of our daily lives.

    7. Chin Ting Chan – Stargaze

    Stargaze is realized using Cycling 74’s Max/MSP 5 program. The entire piece is generated with a sine wave running through various custom-made effect-processing modules; they include amplitude modulation, multi-tap/feedback delay, flanging, reverb, as well as pitch-shifting in the frequency domain using the Fast Fourier Transform procedure. The piece is roughly divided into two parts. The first part uses the same pitch materials from Katachi II for violin and live electronics (2011), where they are solely derived from an ancient game of Go dated from 1846 in Japan. The second part groups the pitches in small sets, sometimes randomizes them and combines them with a quasi-glissando effect.

    Hong Kong composer Chin Ting (Patrick) CHAN has been a fellow and guest composer at festivals such as the International Computer Music Conference, IRCAM’s ManiFeste and the Wellesley Composers Conference, with performances in more than twenty countries. He has twice represented Hong Kong abroad in the International Rostrum of Composers and the ISCM World Music Days Festival. He is currently Assistant Professor of Music Composition at Ball State University. He holds a D.M.A. from the University of Missouri–Kansas City as well as degrees from Bowling Green State University and San José State University. He is currently Assistant Professor of Music Composition at Ball State University.

  • Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Musical Disorders - David Snow

    9th November 2017 @ 10:00 pm - 10:30 pm

    The diagnostic and statistical manual of musical disorders is an expressionistic audio documentary that examines the intellectual and emotional trauma that accompanied the demise of modernism in classical music during the late 20th century. Composers and theorists whose professional rhetoric had elevated compositional technique to the status of triumphalist ideology eventually found themselves adrift in an environment that was indifferent to their mythology of progress, prompting some of them to resist and denounce the inversion of their social and artistic status from avant-garde to garde-en-arrière, and others to abandon the cult of doctrine and adapt to an evolving cultural landscape.

    The compositions of David Jason Snow have been performed in concert by the Ensemble Intercontemporain, the New Juilliard Ensemble, the American Brass Quintet, the Harvard Wind Ensemble, the Eastman Percussion Ensemble, and other ensembles throughout the United States, Europe, Asia and Africa. Snow has been the recipient of awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Maryland State Arts Council, the ASCAP Foundation, BMI, Musician magazine and Keyboard magazine, and has been an artist resident at Yaddo and the Millay Colony for the Arts. He holds degrees in music composition from the Eastman School of Music and Yale University.

  • Secret Fantasies - Niels Bugge

    9th November 2017 @ 10:30 pm - 11:00 pm

    Secret Fantasies is a collection of sound collages based on descriptions of childhood fantasies, remembered by people around the world. People of varying degrees of celebrity have been selected to vocalise the fantasies. These people have been selected according to two criteria: suitable vocabulary on record, and appeal of their voices. The fantasies was released on cassette in 2016 by Calling Cards, a publishing house based in London.

    I have for the past year collected stories. I started collecting them to expand my work
    beyond my own repository of memories and narratives. In the beginning I was asking
    people I knew in conversation if they remembered fantasies they had has children, games they used to play, or memories that they might not have told anyone about. What can they tell about the society in which they come in to existence? Niels Bugge graduated with an MFA from CalArts in 2017, and with a BFA from Glasgow School of Art in 2013. He is currently living in Los Angeles.

    9th November 2017 @ 11:00 pm - 12:00 am

    Infectious Airwaves is a 60-minute program written and produced by Ernestus Jiminy Chald that simulates a weaponized radio broadcast capable of transmitting an auricular pathogen over the airwaves—a sonic contagion that infiltrates the listeners' ears, leaving them afflicted with a terminal auditory infection.

    Ernestus Jiminy Chald is an experimental radio artist, writer, composer, sound designer, and enigmatographer. His radio work has been broadcast on WPOX and featured at the National Audio Theatre Festivals. His literary work has been published by the Journal of Experimental Fiction and Oilcan Press among others. He lives in Chicago.

  • different time different place different pitch: Something is Going to Happen - Dani Gal & Achim Lengerer

    10th November 2017 @ 1:00 am - 2:00 am

    The violent, xenophobic riots in Rostock-Lichtenhagen shortly after the unification of
    Germany. With Wolfgang Richter and Cornelia Schmalz Jacobsen.

    A series of radio programs By Dani Gal and Achim Lengerer. Originally commissioned by Documenta 14.

    The radio is an acousmatic instrument. Listeners do not see the origin of the sound,
    their experience is shaped both by the their own interpretation, and the manipulation
    of the producer in a political system.

    Our programs work on the space between documentary and Musique concrète.
    Each show focuses on political events that are connected to acoustic events. This
    creates an acousmatic documentary where the programs become sound-objects.
    The programs response to the 'image saturated society' discourse, by asking what is
    the function of sound as a document in times of live video feeds that can be broadcast
    by anyone.

    Dani Gal (born 1975, Jerusalem) lives and works in Berlin. He studied at the Bezalel
    Academy for Art and Design in Jerusalem; the Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende
    Künste Städelschule in Frankfurt; and the Cooper Union in New York. His flms and
    works have been shown widely, including: Documenta 14, 54th Venice Biennale
    (2011), The Istanbul Biennale (2011), The New Museum New York (2012),
    Kunsthalle St. Gallen Swizerland (2013), The Jewish museum New York (2014),
    Berlinale Forum Expanded (2014), Kunsthaus Zurich (2015) Kunsthalle Wien (2015)
    And more.

    Achim Lengerer works on political questions of speech and language that he
    thematizes in performances, radio plays or spatializes within installations and
    publications. Lengerer founded different collaborative projects such as freitagsküche
    in Frankfurt a. M. and voiceoverhead, with Dani Gal. Since 2009 Lengerer runs the
    Berlin based showroom and publishing house Scriptings. Different Artists are invited
    – all of which are working with the formats of script and text within their processes of
    production. Lengerer is currently working on his Ph.D. at Goldsmiths, University of
    London, UK, on the format of the rehearsal as an actual format for socio-political
    negotiations.

  • Foundsoundscape - Janek Schaefer

    10th November 2017 @ 2:00 am - 7:00 am

    It's been 20 years exactly since I created 'Recorded Delivery', which quietly collected sounds of the inner realm of the Post Office in March 1995. Back then I could only use cassettes to capture sound, and there was no internet or digital in my world. Two decades later the technical options are staggering, but simplicity and calm is more in demand than ever before.

    Foundsoundscape was inspired by the very first Digital Radio station in the UK, that simply played a recording of a rural location. Radio you could just leave running to add a peaceful ambience to your environment indoors. It heralded a new media paradigm, as digital broadcasting offered more capacity than requred for the first time, and that space needed filling. At the same time on TV, Channel 4 was broadcasting Big Brother live 24hours, and at night I loved to tune-in my analogue TV sets all over the house, and the shed, so I could hear the housemates gently sleeping as I worked through the night. Since then infomercials, and gambling TV have taken over, and I greatly miss that sense of real-time space, that does not demand your attention. Foundsoundscape quietly underscores your environment, by creating new ones from others.

    Radio is special as it was the first medium that could be experienced by many people in many places, all at the same time. Foundsoundscape.com is an online radio station that streams live 24hours a day, which can now be broadcast to people all over the globe. Using over 1000 calm & curious location recordings captured by 100+ recordists, the sounds were simply edited, and then played back three at a time at various volumes in shuffle mode, and the result is never the same twice. You often hear the edges of time as files begin or stop playing mid flow. If you listen ever so carefully you can also hear me working in the studio at the end of the garden late at night, as I have a live mic feeding into the mix. I sometimes like to work with tv radio & music playing, to absorb information, give me ideas, create and share. Email me for a shout-out!

    My hope is that others will find foundsoundscape enjoyable and leave it running all day & all night long, just like a radio! It's as simple as that, with one click. A salute to serendipity and shared sonic space. Bookmark it. Play it in rooms around the house. Share it . . Take a break . . .
    Every day is different.
    Happy Daze.

    "It’s lovely Janek. I really like listening to it.
    Well done! I’ll link it to my friends." [Brian Eno]

    Massive thanks to everyone who has helped make this possible.
    Commissioned by the Sonic Art Research Unit, Oxford Brookes, UK
    Programming by Efthymios Chatzigiannis & David Tinapple
    Curatorial assistance by Holly Jarvis
    special thanks to Paul Whitty

    List of the 100+ audio recorders sending sound from every corner of the globe
    Selection was from an open call for contributions, via my newslist, & online, & in print media. The first people to send in sound were chosen by serendipity,
    and I curated and edited the content. Future participation is by invitation only.

  • Shorts 5

    10th November 2017 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am

    1. Chelidon Frame - Low Rise (Blackout)
    2. B D Owens - Dìlseach
    3. Dixie Treichel – Becoming
    4. Gael Tissot – Reflets Vibrations
    5. Bjorn Hatterud - Prostitute asks God for help, you won't believe what happens next
    6. Bláithín MacDonnell - Something, in parts
    7. Adam Pierce - The Jay Pt. II

    1. Chelidon Frame - Low Rise (Blackout)

    “Low Rise (Blackout)” is an eight minute piece, entirely made up by using recordings of medium wave signals and synthesized sounds. The result is a mist of noises in which sometimes a word or a sound pops up, making itself recognizable. All this rarefied magma will eventually concentrate itself in a dense soundscape of radio noises.

    Chelidon Frame is an experimental electronic project from Milano, Italy. He works with drones, found objects, shortwave radio signals, prepared guitars and looped soundscapes.
Since 2013, he released songs for the compilations promoted by “IFAR”, dealing with Musique Concrète. In 2014, “Antartica” was chosen for Saout Radio’s installation “here.now.where?”, premiered during the V Marrakech Biennale. He also worked on the first and third edition of “Waywords and Meansigns”, an unabridged recreation of “Finnegans Wake”.
In 2017 is selected for an artistic residence at the San Fedele Centre, Milan.
He released three studio albums and one EP.

    2. B D Owens - Dìlseach

    Dìlseach is an experimental voice composition; an imagined soundscape from the perspective of a cairn terrier (Dìlseach). This work is dedicated to the memory of Isa MacLeod and Dìlseach, from Kyle of Lochalsh.

    B. D. Owens is a multi-disciplinary artist based near Helensburgh. He develops his conceptual ideas while walking and writing. Text, layered interpretation and language play are threads that run through his work. Currently, he is examining and challenging the binary doctrines of: Winners & Losers, Losing & Finding and Sameness & Difference. He is graduating with Distinction from the Art, Society & Publics MFA Programme at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, November 2017.

    3. Dixie Treichel – Becoming

    A soundscape about the universe at large and my participation in it. The piece is a mixture of original electronic music, found sounds and field recordings. Included on the album EROS, released by 7MNS Music label
A part of CIRCE: The Black Cut Project by Anna Stereopoulou, Athens, Greece It also aired on FSK Radio, Doctore Xyramat show, Hamburg, 2017

    Dixie Treichel is a composer, sound artist, theatrical sound designer and radio broadcaster. She is a sonic explorer who likes creating with any and all sounds.
Dixie creates experimental sound art, radio art, audio documentaries, field recordings, acousmatic and electro-acoustic music. She also works with artists in multidisciplinary fields and performs experimental music. Her compositions and sound art have been heard internationally on radio, in art galleries, experimental sound art festivals, new music concerts, theaters and streaming festivals. She is based in Minneapolis, MN, USA.

    4. Gael Tissot – Reflets Vibrations

    Reflets-Vibrations (Reflections-vibrations) is the story of a musical development of these two words. Reflets, the first part, is a premonition of what is to come: the sounds of the second part are reused in a much more softer and hidden way. The later part (Vibrations), by contrast, is full of a percussive energy. A danced version of this piece also exists.

    Gaël Tissot studied musicology and composition in Toulouse, before being admitted to the composition class of the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Lyon. Since 2011, he is a member of the artistic collective éOle in Toulouse (France). He is the author of several international musicological publications. Gaël Tissot was awarded several prizes: Mauricio Kagel 2012 (Vienna) 2nd Prize, Prix résidence 2008 at the Concours international de musique et d’art sonore électroacoustiques de Bourges, etc. His music is played in France as well as in other countries: ISCM World Music Days 2016, Nuits bleues, Tage für neue Musik (Darmstadt), festival Occitània (Toulouse), University of Cologne...

    5. Bjorn Hatterud - Prostitute asks God for help, you won't believe what happens next

    This is a sound piece made up of sounds from my own library. My goal with the piece is to make a landscape for metaphysical thinking. The title is from an evangelical christian YouTube video. The piece is a small protest against metaphysics and God being reduced to politics and materialistic greed.

    Bjørn Hatterud (born 1977) is a Norwegian sound artist, art curator, critic and writer. He has released music in more than 15 countries, and worked with artists like Maja Ratkje, Conrad Schnitzler and Lasse Marhaug. He is an independent art curator, and art critic. His writing on contemporary art, music, sexuality and working class culture has been printed in most Norwegian news papers and cultural journals. Hatterud lives and works in Oslo, Norway.

    6. Bláithín MacDonnell - Something, in parts

    In a room above a pub, ‘something in parts’ attempts to root narrative in ideas of displacement, storytelling and to rejoin at once disparate but connected parts. The narrative folds and unfolds itself as objects, places and people are assembled and reassembled. Highly descriptive images of locations and rooms attempt to place the audience in the specifics of place both rooting and un-rooting the listener in their current location. The audience is taken into different spaces through layers which appear to be at once fictional and factual.

    Bláithín Mac Donnell’s practice explores the relationship between place, person, narrative and fact. Storytelling is used as a way to ground an intangible image and relocate it in the now. The act of storytelling is performed and intertwines with the idea of image making itself so that the narrative becomes images in the mind. The viewer faced with a one person narrative is forced to call upon their own visual realm and remake the image within their own mind so that the space in which the story is told becomes the image. Bláithín completed her BA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths, her MA at The Royal College of Art. Recent performances include The Function Room a gallery above a pub, Tate Modern, a former nucleur bunker in Whitechapel and live on radio for Echo, KtoK fm. Most recently she has presented text pieces at ASP Glasgow.

    7. Adam Pierce - The Jay Pt. II

    ‘The Jay”

    He once shot a bluejay through the eye, with a ray from the sun
    Turned off he opened his head to the sky, and laughed at the god’s almanac

    My how I remember that day, in the moon’s great equilibrium;
    forests were at every door
    and I’d walk out to the darkening ship.

    Days tallied on, to the months and to the years
    before long, he would bait the jay
    and look to it’s eye
    shifting in the lilting sun.

    Moons would appear, dancing through the neptune blue fields
    once again, praying for something more,
    for the ire of the night sake was too black.

    Found sound, not field recordings. An audio diary of the images, instruments, and nuances of daily life.

    I have been active in the avant garde music community in Michigan, USA for over a decade, as a solo artist and a part of many collectives, releasing numerous recorded works through many different formats and performing on a regular basis across a diverse set of gallery spaces/venues. Over the past year I have been focusing solely on recording a work titled: 'Music in the Moon Beam,' which is an audio diary that began the winter of 2017 and will end the spring of 2018. The audio work will be accompanied by a dream diary compiled over the course of the same time.
    What interests me is recorded music as sound work, to be absorbed across multiple formats and in diverse environments, not restricted to any contemporary preconceptions of audio consumption.

    Works composed primarily with voice, guitar, m

     


  • World Travels within One's Mind - Jemnastique

    10th November 2017 @ 9:00 am - 9:40 am

    The track starts with a field recording of my university campus a few days before the fall semester started. Then it goes into a recording of the main square in Krakow, Poland I made while visiting family over the summer, Finally I go back to the recording I started with. I added sound that I thought could compliment these recording: nature sounds at the beginning since the university recording is somewhat quiet, busier sounds in the middle, and a soft end. This track represents all the sounds of our world mixing together to create each person's individual soundscape.

    My name is Daniel Jemiolo. My artist name is Jemnastique. I am in the early stages of my music making journey. I make music using field recordings. The field recordings that I use are a combination of personal recordings and ones found on freesound.org. When I make my music, I have a basic idea that I want to try out. I improvise with idea and see what comes out. I only use effects on the sound if I believe that it will enhance the project in some way. In the future I plan to added more produced sounds using the techniques I learn in my computer music classes.

     


  • Catastrophe - Astor

    10th November 2017 @ 9:40 am - 10:00 am

    Assembled from phone recordings made in London and Stockholm throughout summer 2015. Commissioned by 'Ears Have Ears' FBi Radio, Sydney, Australia. First aired Oct 2015. Mastered by Giuseppe Ielasi

    Astor is the moniker of Mark Harwood, Australian publisher, event curator and sound artist who is now residing in London, United Kingdom. Under this guise he deploys a wide variety of techniques including field recording, musique concrete and electronics. All of these forms are approached with a sense of bypassing the cliches embedded within in order to coerce a sound world which is simultaneously contemporary, foreign, intense, beautiful, unsettling and engaging. Mark has released 2 acclaimed LP’s on Kye (USA) with his third, Lina in Nida on his own Penultimate Press imprint.

  • i think we have something in common - Alexander Martinz

    10th November 2017 @ 10:45 am - 11:00 am

    “i think we have something in common” is a modular multimedia work examplifying the transformation and extension of a given structure through a feedback system. It is an ongoing project that isolates intimate parts of the human body and recomposes them digitally. The audiovisual results get published at: https://de.xhamster.com/user/trypophile where they become part of the pornographic maelstrom. The necessary profile, its avatar, the comments and interactions are a vital, ever-developing part of the project. They shed light on certain forms of discourse, the codes of the text and the zoning of the system. The audioversion of the project focuses on three characters of the project and situates them in a drone environment.

    Alexander Martinz, born 1979 in Klagenfurt, studied Electroacoustic Composition and Transmedia Art. He teaches at the University of Applied Arts, lives and works as a composer and media artist in Vienna, is the voice of Captain Knife and the bassist of Running Fetus. He is interested in the different logics and traditions of audiovisual media as well as in their correlations. Complex transformations of popcultural material can be considered a foundation of his work.

  • Is It Worth It? - Allan Whyte and Louise Wilson

    10th November 2017 @ 11:00 am - 11:30 am

    'Is It Worth It? is a new sound piece which aims to draw attention to the vacuous political rhetoric encompassing modern day environmental issues. By manipulating political speech, distorting natural sounds and creating new synthesised instruments, the work deals with threats facing the environment, the lack of political will to make change and media’s acceptance of mistruths. The effects of climate breakdown, which include erratic seasonal patterns and increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide, have been proven to alter breeding and migrational behaviours of birds, cause bleaching and destruction of coral reefs, and pollute our water and air. This reality has been borne out of an economic structure which exploits finite natural resources in search of unsustainable capital gain.'

    This is a collaboration between Allan Whyte and Louise Wilson. Both graduated from Glasgow University with a degree in Zoology. Allan worked for a nearly six years in environmental policy before leaving to pursue a career in the arts. He has recently received a masters degree from Glasgow School of Art in Sound for the Moving Image. Louise moved to the Netherlands to do a short course in sound art and field recording at the Institute of Sonology in the Hague, before commencing a Masters degree in Ecology at Glasgow, from which she will graduate this November. Her research focused on the use of underwater sound as a tool for assessing the health of rivers

  • NM,SK - Sisters Akousmatica

    10th November 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm

    Julia Drouhin and Phillipa Stafford, as Sisters Akousmatica, investigate mysterious radio broadcasts known as “the Silent Key”.

    Radio: drag the dial across frequencies at any given time, any given place and you will hear a cacophony of sounds. Static, pops and crackles, whistles, the tap, tap tap of the world and the universe going about its electromagnetic business. In between those sounds are stations: broadcasts that are music, news, chatter, cryptic messages and espionage. Stretching out around the world in a network of terrestrial communication, bouncing off the heaviside and landing back again to be collected by radio-listeners - in cars and in kitchens. Sisters Akousmatica are always listening - seeking out the strange broadcasts destined for...? Well, who knows. NM, SK begins to examine some of the recordings they have made in their quest to research “the silent key” - a series of broadcast messages that they discovered in the winter of 2017.

    Pip Stafford and Julia Drouhin create curatorial and written international projects concerning collective radio practices, auditory-spatial exploration and the intersection of gender and emergent art forms, to support, promote and cultivate women’s voices in public space. Focusing on the concept of akousma – sound removed from its source – their projects provide a space to examine the possibilities of invisible and ephemeral radiophonic world. They were the recipients of 2016 Next Wave Festival’s Emerging Curator Program presenting Sisters Akousmatica, a women street radio acousmonium with 8 sound artists performing and 2 curators walking for 7 hours in 7 public spaces in Melbourne, in partnership with Liquid Architecture, Signal, 3CR and The Channel.

    Sisters Akousmatica has since become an artistic and curatorial umbrella, awarded by the Arts Tasmania’s Artist Investment Program 2016 to produce a retreat for women sound artists, provide workshops (crystal radio and FM transmitter building) and develop new work. Pip and Julia perform as well as an improvised duo Super Occult Cosmophon using radios as instruments, amplified mineral samples, lovingly re-kindled transistor parts and looped sources in acts of sound divination and occult listening to conjure delicate spirit noises and unleash domestic imps. In 2018 Sisters Akousmatica will present XYL as part of Mona Foma in Tasmania.

    Boblo Island Redux is a collage of sounds, texts, and music from the larger work of theater called BOBLO. The piece explores the incredible of history of Boblo Island, once home to a grand amusement park that now lies in ruins this small piece of land in Detroit River was once a stop on the underground railroad, used for rum running during prohibition and now home to luxury condos.

    1. Slugs of Eternity – Yugamorph

    "Yugamorph" Released by the "Cian Orbe" netlabel

    Our names "horridus" and "David M Paganin"

    "horridus", the driving force behind "devilsclub", is based in Cascadia, Oregon, USA. horridus has anonymously created experimental electronic music since 2012, although his musical experimentations date back far earlier. Sounds of unbridled complexity emerge from his Hordijk modular system. He distances himself from boring rules, censorship, servitude to money, and the illusion of selling art.

    "David M. Paganin" is from West Footscray, Victoria, Australia. The expressive musical themes that interest him relate to human freedom in a post-modern world. Such themes include alienation, psychological repression, the existential vacuum, obsession, rage, absurdity, mourning, regret, neurosis, depression, death and the concept of self. All sounds are intended to be ultimately uplifting, affirmations of human vitality and spirit.

    2. Radio Noise Duo - Antennas instead of roots

    The track is a result of searching for sound structures based mainly on radio noise. The combination of several analogue radios let us produce interference which is controlled by additional devices. The idea is based on searching for various dependence between real-time radio noise and its connections to space, so it becomes a resonator which affects the track sound each time it's performing.

    Radio Noise Duo (Tomasz Misiak and Marcin Olejniczak from Poland) looking for inspiration in electricity, radio noise and amplified everyday objects. Earlier the musicians were associated with groups like kalEka (Misiak) or Monopium (Olejniczak), but they also had some solo projects. Radio Noise Duo is a part of Radio Noise Orchestra- still continuing initiative focused on radio noise in various artistic activities.

    3. Vincent Eoppolo - Virtual Pleasures 1

    I view my works as a synthesis of various sound art traditions including musique concrete, acousmatic music and radio art.

    In my work I strive to present brief moments of the world we are living in. Society in the continuing process of realizing itself. Our relationship with each other, with technology, our morality, spirituality, sexuality, our anxieties and fears. In many ways my works are like sociological and psychological commentaries. My work has been featured on Bernard Clarke's program Nova on RTE's Lyric FM, Phaune Radio from Montpellier, France as well as Radio Art International on CHOQ Radio in Montreal. My works were recently presented at the 2017 New York City Electro-Acoustic Music Festival.

    4. Vile Plumage - Daphne and The Baron are Stranded at the Station: Episode 1

    “Daphne and The Barron are Stranded at the Station” is the first episode of a soap. A melodrama. A voyage to the depths. The murk. Drug cults. Inter-dimensional beings. Demonic possession. The dark movements of a Parish Council. Grim business in a market town.

    Vile Plumage' is a collective consisting of Duke Burnett and Peter 'Bunny' Cropwell , with occasional input from the 'Burselm Community Radio Players'.

    Our primary focus is the 'reality oscillation' - there are no straight lines or static points. Strange myths and urban banality exist at precisely the same co-ordinates. The crowd. You think you recognise those faces... but most of them are doppelgangers. We live in an area called The Burselm. Every Sunday we trudge around the streets, sometimes sheltering in Bingo Hall doorways. Always with the record button pushed firmly down. Sound is transferred directly, MAGICALLY to tape. We butter these recordings with paranormal research. Strictly local. Strictly. These sounds are bashed and boiled into radio shapes. Melodrama. Soap opera. Pulp.

    5. Marcelo Armani - Bill Dá-U-Oh

    Bill Dá-U-Oh is one of the four pieces that integrate the sound installation Concerto Diplomático #0917 (Diplomatic Concert), which was shown between September and November at Adelina Galery, São Paulo, Brazil. This piece is composed of the appropriation of fragments extracted from the youtube channel of Donald Trump's political campaign speeches in which he talks about the construction of the wall on the US-Mexico border. To these fragments, are incorporated sounds and noises recorded by the own artist during a performance that consisted of breaking a wooden wall of 8m of length with blows of ax.

    Marcelo Armani (Carlos Barbosa, 1978) is a sound artist, improv musician and electroacoustic producer. He has recorded recordings in Latin America and is currently represented by label Luscinia Discos, Granada, Spain and Adelina Galeria, São Paulo, Brazil. It is projected in the field of visual arts from 2011, participating in shows with a sound installations projects and artistic residencies by countries of Latin America, Europe, Africa and the United States. He currently lives and works in Canoas, RS, where he also works in sound production for film and video art.

    6. Patrick Blake - Piatti

    An acousmatic piece composed in November of 2015. The piece explores granular sound worlds within conventional musical instruments. Constructed out of recordings of cymbals and electric guitar, transformed and re-purposed, the sounds are layered with field recordings and synthesised tones. Recognisable and familiar sounds can be heard amongst the layers of the piece, developing into distorted and alien sounds.

    Patrick Blake is a student at the University of Glasgow, currently pursuing a Masters degree in Electronics with Music. During his studies, within and without the University, he has explored various arenas of experimental music - from jazz and leftfield pop to electro-acoustic performance and composition. His main musical output can be heard with the bands Neuro Trash and Expert Group, both of which have new material to be released online this year.

    7. Lia Mazzari – Vigiljoch, Chairlift & Whip

    Vigiljoch: Chairlift and Whip is the outcome of two field recordings taken in the Italian Alps in August 2017. It is the first document of her research into whip cracking.

    Lia Mazzari is a musician, producer and translator based in London. Her work involves live performance and recorded material using field recordings, cello, whip and text. Her event series Silver Road reinforces interdisciplinary experiments in sound and vision and was based in a steel water tank in South-East London until March 2017.

     


  • Review Show - Alasdair Fisher

    10th November 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm

    Much modern art, music, theatre, tv, film, literature and radio is marked by a certain slickness, competence and professionalism I often dislike and masks deeper failings. Due to the availability of software and digital recording equipment it is hard to avoid the temptation to achieve this. I wanted to do something marked by a lack of this. Following Borges, Carlyle etc I did this in the form of a review show of imaginary works of varying quality done as much as possible in one take using no software.

    Alasdair Fisher is a writer and actor from Glasgow. He has contributed regularly to Lights Out Listening Group events. He appeared on the recent Noise Against Racism compilation under the name Slave Diet.

  • LENGHEDIVACJE Ep.3 - Renato Rinaldi

    10th November 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 5:30 pm

    Ten stories for the radio – Five collected stories elaborated into five sound tales

    Project by Renato Rinaldi Production and organisation by Hybrida Pieces by Slavek Kwi - Eric la casa - Antje Vowinckel - Ward Weis - Giuseppe Ielasi Funded by Arlef / Agjenzie Regjonâl pe Lenghe Furlane Aired by Frioulian local Radio Onde Furlane

    Language is a sound, before being a meaning, and it’s the first human element in a soundscape. The stories have then been selectet according to the ability of the teller in using the language in a dramatic way more than for the stories themselves. For each story we have commissioned a music piece in which the recorded tale had to be the core of the composition. Such transformation could only be possible in the hands of people who doesn’t have access to the meaning of the words. That is why we have chosen musicians the furthest away possible from Friulian geography, culture and language so as to have them relate with a new, as far as this is possible today, sound context.

    The Friulian language is a mosaic of units, more often micro-units, territorial, each one with its own linguistic nuances and peculiar sound. The development of such peculiarities is the result of a long and continuous exchange with the environment, which each community entertains while setting its roots in a certain area. Language is a sound, before being a meaning, and it’s the first human element in a soundscape. The project Lenghedivacje endeavours at bringing out the sound of the Friulian language, throughout the collection of recorded material concerning historical or personal events. The stories have then been selected according to the ability of the teller in using the language in a dramatic way more than for the stories themselves. The events told are of course significant also as testimony but are especially extraordinary for the way in which they are “spoken” because they are unique and unique is the language they are using. Inside these stories there is a rich musical potential but in order to bring it out we have pushed the language over the wall of sense. For each story we have commissioned a music piece in which the recorded tale had to be the core of the composition. Such transformation could only be possible in the hands of people who could appreciate exclusively the sound of the language thus deprived of its dramatic element linked to sense. That is why we have chosen musicians the furthest away possible from Friulian geography, culture and language so as to have them relate with a new, as far as this is possible today, sound context. The composers selected for this task are people who routinely work with the sound of language and who use the radio as a means of expression investigating its communication possibilities. Each one of them was asked to work on a music composition starting exclusively form the recorded material assigned to them. The result is a series of compositions created from the phonemes (sound bits) of the Friulian language though enjoyable also away from its understanding.

    Collected tales
    3a - Ermes Pellizzari - Interview collected in Preone (UD)
    He tells his account of the earthquake in september 1976 when he was woken up by a tremour and was then rescued by his dog.

    Elaborated into 3b - Linguamoto by Antje Vowinckel - (Germany)
    When I listened to the text I didn't understand anything in the beginning. After two or three times of listening I understood some basic Italian words and I got a hint on the general issue of the recording. But felt helpless and wanted to make a completely abstract musical piece by fragmentizing all the speech. But that would also mean to destroy the characteristic expression of the language. And I wanted to keep it! 
 So I decided to keep single words or phrases that seemed to be somehow dramaturgical keywords or phrases to the narration. And instead of manipulating the language I started to feature these keywords by isolating them, I wanted to free certain words that have a particular melody or human expression from its less significant surrounding. So I only kept single words with lots of breaks that evoke a rythm and emphasize their melodical potential. After introducing the material in this way and show its melodical side I felt able to add melodical material that stams all from pitching a single "huu". Now even longer phrases can be heard as musical material and are integrated in a general musical concept. 
I tried to emphasize the musical charasteristics of the Friul language but also tried to destillate and keep dramaturgic turning points of the original story. I found that the concept shows parallels to Manga aesthetic where you have fragments of phrases that are blown up, isolated from the story and integrated in a visual design.

    Renato Rinaldi studied acting, composition and electronic music. He has worked extensively in theater, first as an actor and then as a sound artist. As a musician he has composed music for theatre, radio plays and documentaries, video and sound installations. He is interested in composition applied to the relationship between sound /environment. He has also produced radio plays, documentaries and radio reportages, aired by Radio RAI and Radio France. The title literally means cow tongue but it refers to a edible plant: Rumex patientia, known as patience dock, "garden patience", "herb patience", or "monk's rhubarb", is a herbaceous perennial plant species of the genus Rumex, belonging to the family Polygonaceae. In spring it is often consumed as a leaf vegetable in Southern Europe.

    10th November 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 6:30 pm

    Julia Drouhin and Phillipa Stafford, as Sisters Akousmatica, investigate mysterious radio broadcasts known as “the Silent Key”.

    Radio: drag the dial across frequencies at any given time, any given place and you will hear a cacophony of sounds. Static, pops and crackles, whistles, the tap, tap tap of the world and the universe going about its electromagnetic business. In between those sounds are stations: broadcasts that are music, news, chatter, cryptic messages and espionage. Stretching out around the world in a network of terrestrial communication, bouncing off the heaviside and landing back again to be collected by radio-listeners - in cars and in kitchens. Sisters Akousmatica are always listening - seeking out the strange broadcasts destined for...? Well, who knows. NM, SK begins to examine some of the recordings they have made in their quest to research “the silent key” - a series of broadcast messages that they discovered in the winter of 2017.

  • Giallo - ETC

    10th November 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 7:00 pm

    In English-speaking countries, the term "giallo" often refers to the Italian film genre, a particular style of Italian-produced murder mistery thriller-horror film that usually blends the atmosphere and suspense of thriller fiction with elements of horror fiction and erotocism.
    The genre developed in the mid-to-late 1960s, peaked in popularity during the 1970s, and subsequently declined over the next few decades. It has been considered to be a predecessor to, and significant influence on, the later American slsher film genre.
    The word "Giallo" is Italian for "yellow" The term was derived from a series of cheap paperback mystery novels, popular in post-fascist Italy, which were published with yellow covers.

    The ETC project combining electro-acoustic experiments and synthetic modulations.
    Soft noise, the collateral effect of an urban environment on individuals from a post-industrial society or as many opportunities to transcribe the unspeakable to the sound plane, et cetera et cetera, the worst remains to come ... ETC has toured in Europe, China cetera et cetera

  • Uhren - Gregory Kramer

    10th November 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

    Uhren is an album of twelve, individually composed, five-minute clocks, totaling one hour. Using field recordings, found sounds, instruments and an alphabet to percussion converter, each piece references time in content or structure. Some of the sonic materials used include recordings of a prehistoric, winter solstice-measuring monument, a mnemonic device for remembering the number of days in months, two cemeteries, an exhibit of extinct animals, a diner at lunchtime and the first five minutes past midnight.

    Gregory Kramer is a multidisciplinary artist working with sound and space. Taking inspiration from his archaeological curiosity of abandoned places and his interest in mythology, he searches for ghosts among the ruins and seeks to unearth evidence of forgotten histories through sound. His sound work uses field recordings, found materials, electronics, instruments and radio transmissions. His work was featured in the Sonom International Sound Art Festival, and he recently composed for a dance piece performed at the Setia Darma Museum of Masks and Puppetry in Bali. He has album releases on Impulsive Habitat and International Winners.

  • Wondering Soul -Alexander Storey & Gordon Richy Carey

    10th November 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

    A live-to-air performance from CCA Glasgow. Tickets are free from CCA box office.

    http://cca-glasgow.com/programme/radiophenia2017

    Wondering Soul explores radio broadcasting materially through live performance, looking at alternative forms of how audio is broadcasted or made public as well investigating the fringes of radio, its liveness, glitches, and ghostly interferences. This exploration or experimentation forms the backdrop to an investigation of sonic phenomena on the edge of human perception which are often characterised in the human mind as supernatural, weird or the eerie. In particular we are focusing on the ghost and the algorithm as similar forms who's histories might inform an understanding of each other, telling a wider story of broadcast technology and human intimacy.

    Alexander Storey Gordon makes drawings, film, text, performative and event based works that articulate the tensions between our bodies, our environment, and others. Crucially, looking at the way these agitations both in the social body and the individual mind are mediated and played back to us through the structures of film and literature.

    He graduated with a degree in Printmaking from Grays School of Art in 2010 and has since exhibited widely both within the UK and Internationally. recent exhibitions have included A Apoheny, Intermedia Gallery, CCA, Glasgow, (solo) 2017; Suppose there is A, ICA Singapore (group) 2017; A P A R I Ç Ã O, Phosphorus, Sao Paulo (solo) 2015; and Be Vigilant Dear Friends, Because You Never Know When Your Going To Have Your Eyes Gouged Out, Glasgow Project Rooms 2014 (solo).

    Richy Carey is a sound artist and composer. Broadly speaking, his work looks about the way we listen to film, thinking about what the sound of an object or material is, not the sound it makes. He’s currently doing AHRC funded PhD research into the relationship between materiality, language and film sound at Glasgow University.

    Recent works and collaborations include Sonorous Objects, with Lauren Gault and Mark Bleakley, Memo to Spring, for Sarah Rose (Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, 2017), Special Works School, with Bambitchell (Gallery TPW, Toronto, 2017), Forms of Action for Asunción Motions Gordo (CCA Glasgow. 2017), "You're saying exactly how I feel” with Tom Walker (TAP Gallery, 2016), There’s something happening somewhere, with Carrie Skinner (Tron Theatre, Glasgow, 2016) and INCONGRUOUS DIVA for Cara Tolmie and Will Holder (British Art Show, John Hansard Gallery, Southampton, 2016).

  • Music and the Shadow People - Andrew O'Connor

    10th November 2017 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm

    Music and the Shadow People is a feature length radio play adapted from a text of the same name by composer William Parker. The radio version was produced by Andrew O'Connor for KunstRadio in Austria. The story takes place in a world that is for the most part ruled, dominated, and being destroyed by HE, a world built on lies, a world out of sync with the realities of the universe. It centers around two main characters Stockyman a revolutionary and wanted man, and Johnson Wordless a conscripted soldier in HIS army, as they both seek passage to the "Tone World".

    Andrew O'Connor independent radio producer, and sound artist based in Toronto. His work reflects an interest in sound, storytelling, and transmission, and explores these ideas through formal broadcast radio as well as installation art, sound design, and pirate radio. Andrew's work has been featured across the CBC Radio network, syndicated internationally and was most recently presented at the UK International Radio Drama Festival. He currently hosts and produces a weekly pirate radio show called Disco 3000 on his own low watt FM station Parkdale Pirate Radio.

  • A thin veneer of fake brick cladding and the bitter sensation of loss (2nd) - James Torrance

    10th November 2017 @ 11:40 pm - 12:00 am

    A specially re-recording version for Radiophrenia of a live hörspiele work performed at Apologies In Advance #7 (V22 Louise House, Forest Hill) on 19th August 2017. A third and final iteration of the piece is being exhibited as a sound installation at the Angus-Hughes gallery in Hackney throughout November.

  • Hearspool 16: A Hewed Man

    11th November 2017 @ 12:00 am - 1:00 am

    In this episode we hear Miju Lee drawing, Christopher Tolkien talking about his father, Professor Eric Hawkins talking about Lorca and Nazi Germany, Sun Ra talking about not being human, excerpts from Pinter’s The Lover and Chesterton’s The Club of Queer Trades, vocabulary from a 1940s documentary about the English language, and music from Satie, Duane Pitre, Delaware, Joe Hisaishi and David Sylvian.

    During 2013 Momus created a series of radiophonic programmes for Newcastle radio station BasicFM entitled Hearspool. Mesmeric, evocative, and made in the tradition of German neue hoerspiel.

  • Radio Concrete - Hagai Izenberg feat. Daniel Meir

    11th November 2017 @ 1:00 am - 2:00 am

    Radio Concrete is an ongoing experimental sound project which combines field recordings together with radio broadcasting.

    It is an exaggerated personal interpretation of sounds that we are exposed to every day in the public and domestic spheres, often in passing or involuntarily.

    Fresh raw materials including field recordings of our everyday routine, samples and loops from tv & radio, news editions and advertisements are all gathered on a regular basis and then mixed together on the spot.

    Hagai is a sound artist, composer and musician and a founder member of the electronic duo Rendezvous. Born in 1978, he lives and works in Israel.

    His work focuses on collecting and combining field recordings together with radio broadcasting, using sounds we’re exposed to every day in the public and domestic spheres, often in passing or involuntarily.

    The result is a multi-layered restless composition created in real-time, using pre-recorded sound objects and live sources; a compressed sonic experience of our daily lives.

  • Precipitation Studies

    11th November 2017 @ 2:00 am - 8:30 am

    A series of rainscapes originally created for a rain pavillion designed by the artists Dalziel & Scullion for the Kaust University Campus in Saudi Arabia. All sounds recorded and composed by Mark Vernon.

    Rain has a unique ability to sound out and describe the surfaces in our immediate surroundings, making us newly aware of the timbre, dimensions and other sonic qualities of all things in our vicinity. Rainfall on pots and pans, tubs and tins, car bonnets and cafe tables, park benches and rubbish bins, drainpipes and scaffolding, umbrellas and window panes, conservatories and caravans, pavements and microphones...

    "I opened the front door, and rain was falling. I stood for a few minutes. Lost in the beauty of it. Rain has a way of bringing out the contours of everything; it throws a coloured blanket over previously invisible things; instead of an intermittent and thus fragmented world, the steadily falling rain creates continuity of acoustic experience."

    (from: John M. Hull, Touching the Rock. An Experience of Blindness, Arrow books, London, 1991, pp.22-23)

    2. Chloë Reid - Filthy Man

    Filthy Man is an audio recording of a reading of a short story by Chloë Reid.

    Chloë Reid is a South African artist currently considering her practice through a socio-physiological framework. Positioned between sociology, biology and psychology, this term refers to the relationship between a society and the habitual physical functions of individuals within that society. She uses film, writing and audio to pare down, repeat and create rhythmical descriptions of objects and actions in an attempt to locate a kind of politics in regular intuitive performance.

    3. Luong Hue Trinh - Return ii

    I’ve heard stories about Vietnamese refugees, and I also met some of them. During war times, they left the country because of various reasons such as politics, religion...etc. or simply, looking for a better life. During their trip to new lands and over there, they faced many difficulties. After years, people could have a stable living, but not all of them. However, they all share a common feeling. They don’t really belong to anywhere. This piece is dedicated to them. In their minds it should create a kind of imaginary motherland.

    1998–2010, after studying at Vietnam National Academy of Music, Luong Hue Trinh graduated with honors in Jazz keyboard. In 2010, electroacoustic music became her main focus. 2015- 2018, she’s been awarding DAAD scholarship for Master Multimedia Composition in Hamburg, Germany.

    Her works’ve been exhibited in art spaces/museums, broadcasted on radios, performed in festivals in Vietnam, Thailand, China, Malaysia, Cambodia, Philippines, Indonesia, Japan, Turkey, US, Czech Republic, Germany, Scandinavia, Australia, Canada & UK. Her first album Illusions had a review and was on the list of Best of 2016: Album of the Year by Avant Music News in San Francisco, US.

    4. Amanda Johnson - The Ice Cave - Buxton Museum

    Composed by Buxton Museum’s artist in residence, Amanda Johnson, for their new gallery opening in September 2017, The Hindlow Lion Suite consists of four electro-acoustic pieces for stringed instruments and recorded environmental sounds. Inspired by the Cave lion bones in Buxton Museum’s collection, the composer uses ancient cave lion DNA to inform the music. The pieces were recorded in Foxhole Cave in the Peak District National Park, Derbyshire, where ice age cave lion bones have been found.

    With thanks to Arts Council England, Buxton Museum, Heritage Lottery Fund, The National Trust, Sound and Music and The British Library sound archive.

    Recent recipient of the Francis Chagrin award Amanda Johnson is a composer and violinist fast gaining a reputation for work made in response to museum collections. In recent years she has worked with the British Music Collection, the National Trust, Nottingham Trent University, Sheffield Cathedral, the National Coal Mining Museum and is she currently composer in residence here at Buxton Museum.

    After a classical training, Amanda played in a number of orchestras and chamber groups. In recent years her practice has moved towards composition, her work combining traditional composition, digital sounds and live performance, often derived from data or patterns.

    5. Jamie Loggie and Connell Soutar - Croft Transmissions SR1241

    Synopsis - This is an experimental piece based on the Number Station phenomenon. Placing the listener in a Croft in the Highlands of Scotland, you listen to an array of unknown shortwave signals from all corners of Scotland's mythical Moors and Munros. From an ancient world full of legends and folklore, where witches, wolves, unicorns and
    giants roam, what anomalies will occur?

    Jamie Loggie - I am an Audio Technician and Sound Designer with experience and skills in various industries and fields including radio, TV, live music, audio production and video production. Working with audio is my passion and I am always striving to learn new things.

    Connel Soutar - I’m a writer with a keen interest in how weird the world is. I’ve covered technology and creative interests, from 3D printed food to political leaders. I really enjoy things that are at least a little strange and have been interested in short and long wave radio for years.

    6. Christoffer Schunk - Did You

    This is the first track of Until No Longer Effective: an album of experimental music utilizing hundreds of fart samples collected over two years. The album can be considered a type of slow- change music based on the listener’s attitude and perception of the sounds. What results from continued exposure to something like a fart and how does accompanying noise influence the perception of it? If it is immediately grotesque or funny, how long does it take for different opinions to form? What does this say about humor? Can fart acclimation relate to societal or political acclimation?

    Christoffer Schunk is a multidisciplinary composer and performance artist based in Los Angeles. His works involve voice, common and uncommon instruments, field recordings, electronics, and acting. His pieces have been featured nationally and internationally at SEAMUS, MUSLAB, the Ars Electronica Forum Wallis Festival, the Brooklyn Film Festival, Sound Thought Festival, the Iron Composer Competition, REDCAT, Human Resources LA, the wulf and on I Care If You Listen, and have been performed by Conceptual Soundproductions Budapest, Santa Clarita Master Chorale, the CalArts New Century Players, Black House Collective, and the UC Santa Barbara Symphony Orchestra.

    7. Eleanor Wright - Still Solar Wind

    Considering the universe as a complex network of vibrations, we reposition ourselves (as a body of waves) somewhere amongst the macro (cosmic) and micro (atomic) frequencies of our environment.We seek to find harmony and resonance in the symphony of energies that surround us, and we can be made aware of the omnipresent vibrations with the understanding of sound waves as pervasive spiritual entities: eclectic but united in their nature. This piece proposes a moment of resonance where radio is the domestic platform that these measureless vibrations can assume

    Former art student and current physics student, I hope to eliminate the exclusive language the two fields use to communicate their essential comments and explorations of the universe, and cross pollinate the two in hope to share and achieve a higher consciousness.

     


  • Mary Farfisa's Outer Space Radio Theater: Stardust Storm - Jim Cheff

    11th November 2017 @ 9:30 am - 10:00 am

    I have been writing and producing a weekly series of musical science fiction radio plays for children. They are broadcast on Radio Sunnyside, 101.5 FM, here in my hometown of Flagstaff Arizona. The show is called "Mary Farfisa's Outer Space Radio Theater." Mary Farfisa is an eight-year-old space-girl who travels the Galaxies on her space-horse, Briscoe. Mary goes from planet to planet, searching for “songs and sounds and music and noise” to share with the rest of the Universe. Mary catches the songs and sounds and music and noise in her “audio lasso.” Then she brings them to the Listener’s Library – an intergalactic collection of sounds, curated by music-loving super-beings called the Listeners. Mary’s adventures are exciting, funny and fun. But each episode also teaches something about a certain style of music, or deals with some aspect of learning music that kids can relate to. The show was created by me. I write, produce (and even act!) in every episode. Original music and sound effects are created for each episode. The art and posters that accompany each show are painted by me. The plays are performed by local actors and musicians, like Cara Alboucq, who plays the role of Mary Farfisa.

    All the shows can be listened to at mixcloud.com/maryfarfisashow.

  • Kitty Jinks - K & C Radio - Side 1

    11th November 2017 @ 10:00 am - 10:45 am

    An anonymous submission of unknown provenance. An uncensored artefact of outsider radio. This programme documents the audio inventiveness of two hyperactive young girls across two sides of a C90 cassette tape. K & C radio explores the inner psyche of its two willing participants revealing obsessions with nuns, the Argos catalogue, Gremlins and poo, lots of poo. For the first time ever this radio show made solely for the entertainment of an audience of two will be heard across the airwaves and across time. K & C – if you’re listening, and I hope you are - I’d just like to let you know that – I need a poo!

     


  • Upward Citizen - Ignacio Pereira Molina

    11th November 2017 @ 10:45 am - 11:00 am

    Upward Citizen is an experimental sound project recorded in the city of Santiago, Chile in November 2016.

    This work proposes a vertical crossing, which accounts for the link between the release of the being and action of climbing. By means of the registration of the different layers of the city (that begins in the underground transport and ends at the top of Cerro Santa Lucía, immersed in the middle of the city) this proposal pretends to show the different sonorities to which we are exposed within the contemporary city and how it can mutate depending on the place and height to which we are.

    Ignacio Pereira Molina a.k.a Espereira (b. 1992) is a chilean-based graphic designer and media artist. Since his formal studies in design, his work has been changing into more experimental and conceptual areas, working the image as a whole in various techniques such as photography, engraving and new media. Its imaginary is based mainly on the human being and its relation with the habitat; carrying out interdisciplinary projects that try to unveil the existence of man.

  • So what is your vibration? - Catherine Street

    11th November 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 12:15 pm

    So what is your vibration? is a poem and a stream of conciousness. There is fire, lava and molten metal as well as electrical storms, spiders' webs and votive offerings to the gods. The work is in part inspired by visits to the geology collection of the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh.

  • The Lady In Her Dimensions - Jolyon Houghton

    11th November 2017 @ 12:15 pm - 12:30 pm

    The Lady In Her Dimensions is a series of writings describing a woman – a relationship, a past love – but explored through theories on the construct of the universe. It allows the unknown to become potential. The real to become magical. It presents a different angle in which to interpret the feelings of loss, guilt, want and regret, and how all things are intimately connected.

    The piece comes from a collaborative project made with my brother, involving the creation of twelve experimental pieces of writing – stories, plays, poems, scribblings – each developed from the starting point of a photograph.

    Jolyon Houghton is a 28 year old actor and writer from West London, who studied Collaborative & Devised Theatre at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. His writing is a mixture of humour and misfortune, in the form of plays, poems and short stories.

    Written by Jolyon Houghton

    1. Garrett Tiedemann - Last Thursday (in Fragments) - Episode 6 – Limitation

    In 2015 Don Chambers hosted "a music and other things entertainment" each month called The Last Thursday. Each month had its own theme and governed not only the types of content, but way of presentation for the evening. These evenings lived and died in the moment with very little social media promotion or archiving. In series 2 of The White Whale we offer snippets of these evenings; providing first glimpses beyond the nights of what went down and why their existence foregoing online permanence is important. Visit http://www.donchambersmusic.com/ for music and more.

    Garrett Tiedemann is a radio producer, journalist, filmmaker and composer. He works for American Public Media covering the breadth and depth of composed music for YourClassical and Classical Minnesota Public Radio while also producing films, music videos, music and the podcast The White Whale via his production company CyNar Pictures. As a freelancer, he has lent production and compositional approaches to the podcasts Vanishing Ink, Here Be Monsters, The Organist, ARRVLS, Life of the Law, and Top Score. Additionally, he manages production and strategy for the oral history/storytelling project SisterStory.

    2. Hagai Izenberg - Chronicle 2

    Chronicles is a weekly format of works that attempt to trace the sounds and happenings on a weekly basis and compress them to 4-5 minutes of sonic experience. Fresh raw materials were collected every week including field recordings, samples from radio & tv and recordings sent by listeners of RadioArt program by Meira Asher on 106fm, who featured the project. It includes 6 episodes (total of 30 minutes) of 6 weeks from Oct 6th till Nov 17th, 2016 and attempts to capture everyday sounds together with the daily news & events, tragedies and political discourse next to advertisements and entertainment.

    Hagai is a sound artist, composer and musician and a founder member of the electronic duo Rendezvous. Born in 1978, he lives and works in Israel. His work focuses on collecting and combining field recordings together with radio broadcasting, using sounds we’re exposed to every day in the public and domestic spheres, often in passing or involuntarily. The result is a multi-layered restless composition created in real-time, using pre-recorded sound objects and live sources; a compressed sonic experience of our daily lives.

    3. Jaxton Su Jingxiang - Dreamacape: friends

    Dreamscape is an exploration of how sounds in dreams can be translated aurally to form a narrative that could potentially aid in the understanding of the self. It aims to provide the audience with a sonic experience of the artist's self-portrait as told by his dreams.

    Jaxton Su (b. 1988) is a Singaporean Visual Artist, based in Glasgow, UK. He enjoys experimenting with the use of colours in portraying peculiar narratives that delve into the notions of archetypes and the imaginary. Taking inspirations from the natural environment, Jaxton often creates bizarre dreamlike worlds with a whimsical composition of elements to bring across his ideas. Working with a variety of different mediums such as painting and installation, he hopes to create a visual utopia that could form a resonation with others and spark an imagination.

    4. Jamie Livingstone – Iteration

    Puddle Rainbows Missed is a poetry EP by Jamie Livingstone produced by future garage and techno DJs Blackboxx and Acidtone. It centres around the idea of the Mandelbrot Set and iterative patterns. How do these forms commune with the brittle, coarse and tender everyday muck? What are people up to with cucumbers? Who knows anyway? It’s poems mixed with samples. It’s sound and shape.

    I started writing poetry when Mr Harrington read us Yeats and almost stopped when I heard what age he lost his virginity.
    Yeats, that is, not Mr Harrington.
    Who knows what he gets up to.
    I am 26. Yeats was 31. I live in Oban. I have no children. I have a full set of teeth.

    Jean François CAVRO - Compositeur – Artiste du son - Cartographe sonore Il est diplômé du Conservatoire National de Région de Lyon (CNR - classe de Denis Dufour) et du onservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Lyon (CNSM - classe de Philippe Manoury et Denis Lorrain), en composition instrumentale, électroacoustique et informatique musicale. Il a également suivi le cursus de DEA musicologie du XXième siècle à l’IRCAM
    (Institut de Recherche et de Coordination Acoustique/Musique – Paris. Il est actuellement étudiant en Master II musicologie, mémoire de recherche sur la cartographie sonore urbaine. Il intervient régulièrement depuis plusieurs années dans le cadre de projets en collaboration avec l’Education Nationale : Projet petite enfance, Ville de Lyon – projet sur l’ Arc Jurassique Franco/Suisse – Lycée du 1er Film Lyon - colloque 2005 “la Musique, le
    Son et la Ville” – Lycée Courbet, Belfort – Lycée Technique de l’Horlogerie, collège et établissements primaires de la ville de Morteau – Centre de Linguistique Appliquée Besançon – Ecole Nationale des Beaux Arts de Limoges – Intervenant son à l’École
    Nationale Supérieure de Cinéma Louis Lumière – La Plaine St Denis, Cité du Cinéma.

    Il se présente comme artiste du sonore en développant parallèlement à son travail de composition un vaste projet sur les paysages sonores, mémoire vivante du monde contemporain. Ce travail sonore s’inscrit dans une réalité urbaine. Son approche de musicien ouvre un champ autre à la lecture classique d’une ville : il nous révèle les sons et la voix de la ville. Par une exploration passant par la collecte d’instantanés sonores, il élabore une cartographie nouvelle. Elle alterne des échelles de sons diverses partant du fond sonore général d’un hall de gare jusqu’au détail comme la voix d’un marchand ambulant dans la rue... vrai puzzle ou kaléidoscope sonore renvoyant aux multiples facettes et images urbaines. Il définit la ville non seulement comme un lieu mais aussi comme une accumulation de mouvements pluriels et d’expériences simultanées. La ville est un véritable palimpseste où se lisent les couches de l’histoire : les bâtiments gardent en eux une mémoire. Ils sont les témoins d’une époque, d’un temps passé, présent ou futur. A l’inverse l’environnement sonore est oublié, fugace, éphémère. Jean François CAVRO fixe cette mémoire sonore en perpétuelle transformation et nous permet de l’analyser et de mieux comprendre ainsi notre société. Celle ci est de plus en plus urbaine, les sons industriels remplacent un par un les sons naturels. Les villes s’étalent dans une péri- urbanisation.

    Jean François CAVRO nous éclaire, par sa démarche, sur l’évolution de ce phénomène. Par ses constats et questionnements il peut donner des réponses et des
    orientations à suivre pour les acteurs de la ville. Par son travail minutieux de construction et de déconstruction sonore, le compositeur nous pose ainsi les questions : “Aujourd’hui où vivons nous et Que devons nous écouter ?”. Cette simple question constitue peut-être tout l’enjeu d’une composition musicale conçue dans une réalité sonore urbaine : témoigner de l’identité sonore des villes. Une telle prise de conscience peut sans doute contribuer à révéler la vigueur des lieux dans lequel nous vivons. Il est lauréat de plusieurs résidences et concours nationaux et internationaux.

    A conceptual and personal exploration of the essence of art: both thesis and anti-thesis. The essence of art is to make mistakes. True art is (but) deception. Trust me, I'm an artist.

    Sound sculptor and media artist Timo Kahlen (*1966) has been creating eye- and earcatching, temporary media sculptures and sound installations for more than 25 years.

    Some embrace the spirit as a source of comfort but what exactly is this ethereal

    by Stephanie Turner. Produced by Stuart Russell with Eyebrow Media.

    http://www.eyebrowmedia.com

    Stuart Russell is an award winning artist and audio producer, passionate about
    creative media. Stuart combines his artistic eye and flair for poetry with
    programme making, to create work that excites and inspires the creative mind.
    His work features on a variety of platforms including Resonance FM and (in the
    past) BBC Scotland. At 22, he was one of the youngest in the country to receive
    a British Empire Medal for services to the arts, one of many impressive
    accolades.

    4. Seth Rozanoff – Preachersong

    Preachersong (2012) was realized in the electronic music studios at the Sonic Arts Research Center in Belfast. Audio recordings, which I collected as I walked through the town centre streets of Sao Paulo, were freely arranged, through a process of reflective listening in the studio. My approach in the studio can be viewed as an improvisation; I aimed to create collisions of contrasting environmental sounds. These contrasts seemed to highlight a new intimacy between individuals and their environment. For example, the opening 'character', a preacher wandering through the praça de sé, introduces the listener to a new developing environment.

    BIO:
    Seth Rozanoff is currently living in Glasgow, where he received a Phd at the University of Glasgow. He previously lived in Belfast, Amsterdam, and Sao Paulo after leaving New York City in 2010. Rozanoff’s work sets up a range of performative, musical, and compositional relationships. The resulting interaction is managed through either a range of scores, studio techniques, and live electronic performance. Future projects include, a series of solo works for drum machine, sampler, laptop, and video; a work for percussion and electronics with Ruud Roelofsen; and a piano and electronics work for Adam Tendler.

    5. Selina Springett - Profits [or] Loss

    This audio piece is from an installation work adapted for radio. It invites the listener to contemplate the conflicting roles of nature, consumerism and an increasingly mechanised, distanced society. It combines field recordings from urban Australian bushland(forest that borders residential city areas) and polyvocal narrations of the net value of the 60 richest companies and the 100 richest individuals in the world, as well as their profit (or loss) of a single day’s trading.

  • The Art & podcast - Art & Nannying

    11th November 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

    Welcome to the Art & Podcast, a podcast that asks "What do you do?" and "Can that be called Art?". Hosted by artist and performer Ronan Mcmahon, and loyally assisted by
    producer Roy Shearer, each episode takes the listener on a conversational tour of a different occupation. We delve into how each guest perceives art and creativity, and to what extent both relate to their day job, all whilst taking a nice walk during their lunch break.

    In this episode we ask: can Nannying be called an art-form?

    We met up with Giulia, who runs a nanny agency in Berlin, to find out. Ronan risks life and limb once again, being swallowed and spat out by a dragon in the quest for scientific rigour.

    Ronan Mcmahon is a stage and radio comedy performer with a passion for the convergence of science and art. He regularly collaborates with Naomi O Kelly as the clowning, storytelling, puppetry, live music and social satire partnership, Two Detectives.

    Roy Shearer is a designer and musician, who often consults as a technician to the arts, and occasionally makes his own forays into sound art and interactive installation.

  • LENGHEDIVACJE Ep.4 - Renato Rinaldi

    11th November 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 5:30 pm

    Ten stories for the radio – Five collected stories elaborated into five sound tales

    Project by Renato Rinaldi Production and organisation by Hybrida Pieces by Slavek Kwi - Eric la casa - Antje Vowinckel - Ward Weis - Giuseppe Ielasi Funded by Arlef / Agjenzie Regjonâl pe Lenghe Furlane Aired by Frioulian local Radio Onde Furlane

    Language is a sound, before being a meaning, and it’s the first human element in a soundscape. The stories have then been selectet according to the ability of the teller in using the language in a dramatic way more than for the stories themselves. For each story we have commissioned a music piece in which the recorded tale had to be the core of the composition. Such tranformation could only be possible in the hands of people who doesn’t have access to the meaning of the words. That is why we have chosen musicians the furthest away possible from Friulian geography, culture and language so as to have them relate with a new, as far as this is possible today, sound context. The title literally means cow tongue but it refers to a edible plant: Rumex patientia, known as patience dock, "garden patience", "herb patience", or "monk's rhubarb", is a herbaceous perennial plant species of the genus Rumex, belonging to the family Polygonaceae. In spring it is often consumed as a leaf vegetable in Southern Europe.

    The Friulian language is a mosaic of units, more often micro-units, territorial, each one with its own linguistic nuances and peculiar sound. The development of such peculiarities is the result of a long and continuous exchange with the environment, which each community entertains while setting its roots in a certain area. Language is a sound, before being a meaning, and it’s the first human element in a soundscape. The project Lenghedivacje endeavours at bringing out the sound of the Friulian language, throughout the collection of recorded material concerning historical or personal events. The stories have then been selected according to the ability of the teller in using the language in a dramatic way more than for the stories themselves. The events told are of course significant also as testimony but are especially extraordinary for the way in which they are “spoken” because they are unique and unique is the language they are using. Inside these stories there is a rich musical potential but in order to bring it out we have pushed the language over the wall of sense. For each story we have commissioned a music piece in which the recorded tale had to be the core of the composition. Such transformation could only be possible in the hands of people who could appreciate exclusively the sound of the language thus deprived of its dramatic element linked to sense. That is why we have chosen musicians the furthest away possible from Friulian geography, culture and language so as to have them relate with a new, as far as this is possible today, sound context. The composers selected for this task are people who routinely work with the sound of language and who use the radio as a means of expression investigating its communication possibilities. Each one of them was asked to work on a music composition starting exclusively form the recorded material assigned to them. The result is a series of compositions created from the phonemes (sound bits) of the Friulian language though enjoyable also away from its understanding.

    Collected tales
    4a - Vilma Boria - Interview collected in Socchieve (UD)
    Her life in a farm by the river, she tells about how the water in May “falls in love”.

    Elaborated into 4b - iiiooOo by Ward Weis - (Belgium)
    i don't understand any word of the original recording .... so, i took the first and last word of the lady an did some spectral analyse on it.
    I could generate new sonic material from this research. it was my scope to make the final edit as long as the original material ... so my piece is also 10.43 ( cutted the silences at the begin and end ) where the original sounded quite hard, my version became less harsh, much more stretched and sound as a choir not speaking words only syllables instead.

    Renato Rinaldi studied acting, composition and electronic music. He has worked extensively in theater, first as an actor and then as a sound artist. As a musician he has composed music for theatre, radio plays and documentaries, video and sound installations. He is interested in composition applied to the relationship between sound /environment. He has also produced radio plays, documentaries and radio reportages, aired by Radio RAI and Radio France.

    1. Adam Paroussos - Mvt. II: Bamboo Mustard

    Cosmophonic Fantasia: Mvts I-III (OST)
    Cosmophonic Fantasia is predominately a musique concrète film in three movements: I Audio Field, II Bamboo Mustard and III Fractal Reprise. This piece explores the metaphysical and expressive nature of sound and inspired by Sonata form. ‘Audio Field’ uses a collection of montaged film and sound samples and ‘remixes’ them together to turn the everyday experiences of sound into a dream-like sonic experience. Mvt 2,‘Bamboo Mustard’ uses collected fragments of live performances to piece together the journey of this character - Bamboo Mustard. The final movement Fractal Reprise concludes the film, exploring the underlying structures within the natural and sound.

    Adam Paroussos is an interdisciplinary sound artist and designer, just graduated from Central Saint Martins, BA Performance Design and Practice. His work is rooted in performative, collaborative and experimental approaches with sound and music. Under his Nova award-nominated alter-ego ‘Bamboo Mustard’, he performs with DIY instruments in a sound costume in the cracks and corners of London. Adam works across theatre, live art and film including composing the soundtrack for Andrea Zimmerman’s ‘Erase and Forget’ documentary and Jotdown’s physical theatre show ‘Haidar’.

    2. Hagai Izenberg - Chronicle 3

    Chronicles is a weekly format of works that attempt to trace the sounds and happenings on a weekly basis and compress them to 4-5 minutes of sonic experience. Fresh raw materials were collected every week including field recordings, samples from radio & tv and recordings sent by listeners of RadioArt program by Meira Asher on 106fm, who featured the project. It includes 6 episodes (total of 30 minutes) of 6 weeks from Oct 6th till Nov 17th, 2016 and attempts to capture everyday sounds together with the daily news & events, tragedies and political discourse next to advertisements and entertainment.

    Hagai is a sound artist, composer and musician and a founder member of the electronic duo Rendezvous. Born in 1978, he lives and works in Israel. His work focuses on collecting and combining field recordings together with radio broadcasting, using sounds we’re exposed to every day in the public and domestic spheres, often in passing or involuntarily. The result is a multi-layered restless composition created in real-time, using pre-recorded sound objects and live sources; a compressed sonic experience of our daily lives.

    3. Jaxton Su Jingxiang - Dreamscape: Prison break

    Dreamscape is an exploration of how sounds in dreams can be translated aurally to form a narrative that could potentially aid in the understanding of the self. It aims to provide the audience with a sonic experience of the artist's self-portrait as told by his dreams.

    Jaxton Su (b. 1988) is a Singaporean Visual Artist, based in Glasgow, UK. He enjoys experimenting with the use of colours in portraying peculiar narratives that delve into the notions of archetypes and the imaginary. Taking inspirations from the natural environment, Jaxton often creates bizarre dreamlike worlds with a whimsical composition of elements to bring across his ideas. Working with a variety of different mediums such as painting and installation, he hopes to create a visual utopia that could form a resonation with others and spark an imagination.

    Puddle Rainbows Missed is a poetry EP by Jamie Livingstone produced by future garage and techno DJs Blackboxx and Acidtone. It centres around the idea of the Mandelbrot Set and iterative patterns. How do these forms commune with the brittle, coarse and tender everyday muck? What are people up to with cucumbers? Who knows anyway? It’s poems mixed with samples. It’s sound and shape.

    I started writing poetry when Mr Harrington read us Yeats and almost stopped when I heard what age he lost his virginity.
    Yeats, that is, not Mr Harrington.
    Who knows what he gets up to.
    I am 26. Yeats was 31. I live in Oban. I have no children. I have a full set of teeth.

  • Am I sitting in a room? - Arnau Horta

    11th November 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 7:30 pm

    Alvin Lucier’s “I am sitting in a room” is not just a key work in the history of sound art but also and primordially an example of sonic conceptual art. The piece has often been analyzed from a phenomenological approach, grounded in how sound builds our perception of a space and how, conversely, that same space shapes the sounds we hear when we inhabit it. But Lucier’s piece has a lot more to say. “I am sitting in a room” can be understood as a sonic-work about self-presence and the problematic notion of a speaking subject that, to put in the words of Jacques Derrida, “hears himself speak”.

    Lucier himself recalls that one day Cornelius Cardew described the piece as some sort of suicidal act: a sonic device through which his author was trying to make himself disappear by means of erasing his voice. To put it less dramatically, it could be said that Lucier’s famous piece is a brilliant trick of acousmatic escapism. Where did Lucier go? Is he still in the room after his speech is no longer understandable? Has he turned himself into a resonant ghost?

    “Am I sitting in a room?” pays homage to Lucier’s almost homonymous work and, at the same time, is conceived as a sonic commentary to the strong conceptual operation that underlies the original piece. The central idea is reversing the process through which Lucier’s piece was created. The voice explaining the process cannot be heard until the piece is close to its end. What we hear is not a voice disappearing but a recorded speech that progressively becomes clearer and easier to understand. Someone seems to be appearing. But does this acousmatic subject (this acousmêtre as Michel Chion would call it) appear completely? Is he fully revealed? The voice sounds strange, like if someone is talking backwards. And, after all, a recorded voice is always a simulacrum of a presence, a ghost. Just as Lucier’s piece couldn’t erase his presence completely, the acousmêtre behind this piece will not succeed in
    making himself fully present. So… is he really sitting in a room?

    “Am I sitting in a room?” is not just the result of an "artistic attempt" but also and
    primarily an exercise carried out in the framework of my doctoral research on Lucier's piece. When I started working on my philosophy thesis I soon realized
    about the fact that "I am sitting in a room" seems to defy a purely theoretical
    approach and demands a practical and truly sonic engagement. This is the
    reason why, in order to address issues such as those of presence, resonance,
    appearance and disappearance, I decided to record this "reversed" and also “interrogative” version of the piece. The final aim of this exercise is not so much
    answering the questions that Lucier’s piece seems to raise but to reformulate
    them by asking them again in a reverse form.

    The full text that will be reversed and repeatedly played back into the room and
    finally reversed again when the process is completed is the following one:

    I am sitting in a room different from the one you are in now. I am recording the sound of my speaking voice and I am going to reverse it before I play it back into the room again and again. By doing this the resonant frequencies of the room will reinforce themselves and any semblance of my speech, with perhaps the exception of rhythm, will be destroyed. After that I will reverse the recording resulting from this process. What you have been hearing from the very beginning are the natural resonant frequencies of the room articulated by speech. I don’t regard this activity simply as a tribute to Alvin Lucier’s “I am sitting in a room” but as a way to reverse his trick of acousmatic escapism. Just as he seemingly tried to make himself disappear I am trying to do the opposite. And just as Lucier’s piece couldn’t erase his presence
    completely this one will not succeed in making me fully present.

    11th November 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 8:00 pm

    Guest lectures is a 30 minute presentation designed for a segment within the electromagnetic radiation on Zanj Radio. There is a tension in Jamaica which erupts in contradictions which play out in our daily lives and then spills into the news. Many times ideas goes without interrogation as events occur quickly. New ways of presenting complex ideas are important and necessary. In this lecture I manipulate audio I captured from a Christian led protest in Half-way tree about the threat of the homosexual agenda in Jamaica.

    I grew up in Spanish Town, St.Catherine, Jamaica. I attended St.Jago High School and later went to the University of the West Indies to complete a B.Sc in International Relations, an M.Sc in Governance and a PhD in Sustainable Development. I have always admired the critical view my father took towards everyday things and everyday conversation, he was very critical with his primary school education. I was significantly impacted by the creativity of my mother who was a teacher and her love for books and learning.

    I live as an artist and a creative grounded in a Rastafarian/African spirituality.

    This is a selection of seven shows from ‘radioart106fm’ compiled for radiophrenia 2017. It contains the creations of female Radio and Sound artists.

    French sound artist, activist and musician Gaël Segalen aka IhearU has a very diverse experience in sound and is focused on polylistening, dissonance and new music, as well as to create people’s encounters in improvisation spaces. She believes all the noises she has collected or manipulated, can coexist in one inclusive spirit, here and now, and transposes the complexity of the world into electroacoustic and polyrhythmic soundscapes, bruitisme and DFR (Danceable Field Recording) compositions. The reconciliation of all the noises she has collected from her travels is manipulated in the studio, in one inclusive spirit, here and now.

    3. Bláithín MacDonnell - Something in Parts

    In a room above a pub, ‘something in parts’ attempts to root narrative in ideas of displacement, storytelling and to rejoin at once disparate but connected parts. The narrative folds and unfolds itself as objects, places and people are assembled and reassembled. Highly descriptive images of locations and rooms attempt to place the audience in the specifics of place both rooting and un-rooting the listener in their current location. The audience is taken into different spaces through layers which appear to be at once fictional and factual.

    Bláithín Mac Donnell’s practice explores the relationship between place, person, narrative and fact. Storytelling is used as a way to ground an intangible image and relocate it in the now. The act of storytelling is performed and intertwines with the idea of image making itself so that the narrative becomes images in the mind. The viewer faced with a one person narrative is forced to call upon their own visual realm and remake the image within their own mind so that the space in which the story is told becomes the image. Bláithín completed her BA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths, her MA at The Royal College of Art. Recent performances include The Function Room a gallery above a pub, Tate Modern, a former nucleur bunker in Whitechapel and live on radio for Echo, KtoK fm. Most recently she has presented text pieces at ASP Glasgow.

    6. ETC - Giallo

    In English-speaking countries, the term "giallo" often refers to the Italian film genre, a particular style of Italian-produced murder mystery thriller-horror film that usually blends the atmosphere and suspense of thriller fiction with elements of horror fiction and eroticism.
    The genre developed in the mid-to-late 1960s, peaked in popularity during the 1970s, and subsequently declined over the next few decades. It has been considered to be a predecessor to, and significant influence on, the later American slasher-film genre.
    The word "Giallo" is Italian for "yellow" The term was derived from a series of cheap paperback mystery novels, popular in post-fascist Italy, which were published with yellow covers.

    The ETC project combining electro-acoustic experiments and synthetic modulations.

    Blake DeGraw is a composer, performer, bandleader, and sound-installation artist currently residing in Seattle, WA. He studied euphonium performance at the Las Vegas Academy of Performing Arts, and currently studies modern composition at Cornish College of the Arts. He is the director and conductor of FHTAGN, an experimental chamber ensemble that focuses on extremes in spatial dispersion, as well as indeterminacy operations, free improvisation, and alternative forms of conduction within those extremes. DeGraw is also the co-founder of Plancklength, a sound-art collective that explores interactive sound production through installation work and instrument creation.

  • Please Mind The Gap - Mari Moriko/Cashmere Radio

    11th November 2017 @ 10:30 pm - 12:00 am

    Please mind the gap is the first episode of a new monthly show by Mari Moriko broadcasting on Cashmere Radio. It is an audio collage of sounds from all ages that look toward a feminist future where power structures of all kinds are questioned and dismantled. but how far is this a western-centric ideal and how does it translate to non-western cultures (my focus is on japan) where the binary notion of gender is woven into the language itself. synthesised text-to-speech voices read out texts, manifestos, cd sleeves, user comments, conversations and more, underscored with beautiful pieces by women in electronic music. each show concludes with an episode of “sumatto” (smut – erotic literature for women by women), read out almost unintelligibly by a japanese text-to-speech voice.

  • Deep Sleep Trawler - Mark Vernon

    12th November 2017 @ 1:00 am - 1:30 am

    Mark Vernon – Deep Sleep Trawler

    Synopsis:

    A composed dreamscape created from a series of interviews about nightmares and dreams. The voices are combined with atmospheric soundbeds created from processed electronic sounds and field recordings to create a form of non-narrative radio play where dream logic rules. The piece is in part an homage to Barry Bermange and Delia Derbyshire's 1964 radio work, 'Inventions for Radio: Dreams'. This piece also includes readings of extracts from the dream diaries of artist, shamen and dream interpreter, Kate Walters, interviews made by Radio Royal volunteers and interviews with members of the FDAMH arts and media group. Thank you to everyone who took part.

    Biography
    Mark Vernon is a Glasgow-based artist whose work exists on the fringes of sound art, music and broadcasting. At the core of his practice lies a fascination with the intimacy of the radio voice, environmental sound, obsolete media and the reappropriation of found recordings. A keen advocate of radio as an art form, he co-runs Glasgow art radio station, Radiophrenia and has produced programmes for stations internationally. He has published his solo and collaborative music projects through labels including Staalplaat, Ultra Eczema, Entr’acte, 3Leaves, Staubgold and Gagarin Records, as well as a series of small CDR and LP editions on his own meagre resource imprint. His last album ‘Lend an ear, leave a word’ was released on Kye Records in 2016.

  • Commence Exuding The Opaque Vapour - Barry Burns

    12th November 2017 @ 1:30 am - 7:00 am

    For the last five years I have taken a sample from every video I watch on my laptop. As a tip of the hat to William Burroughs and Robert Anton Wilson I take the sample from the 23rd minute. Each sample is arranged and layered chronologically, constructing an aleatory narrative, a random DJ mix of dialogue, music and foley, a self portrait of viewing habits and memory. VHS rips merge with Blu Ray restorations, youtube binges mingle with abandoned box sets.

    Barry Burns is not the bloke out of Mogwai, its a different, unsuccessful one. He is the co-manager of Radiophrenia and has used his immense power to give himself the highly coveted 5am slot.

    1. Chin Ting Chan - Katachi I

    Katachi is a Japanese term that means form, shape or figure. In the ancient game of Go, the word Katachi is used to describe the formation of stones on a Go board (Go is originated from Ancient China, where it is known as Weiqi). The conception of stone formation in Go is transformed to apply to the circulation and combination of sounds and timbre in the music.

    Hong Kong composer Chin Ting (Patrick) CHAN has been a fellow and guest composer at festivals such as the International Computer Music Conference, IRCAM’s ManiFeste and the Wellesley Composers Conference, with performances in more than twenty countries. He has twice represented Hong Kong abroad in the International Rostrum of Composers and the ISCM World Music Days Festival. He is currently Assistant Professor of Music Composition at Ball State University. He holds a D.M.A. from the University of Missouri–Kansas City as well as degrees from Bowling Green State University and San José State University.

    4. Kala Pierson – Lost Languages

    Lost Languages begins with fluid loops played by Ilya Temkin on bandura (a Ukrainian lute). Gradually, these loops wash into sounds made from other acoustic-only sources: bowed piano strings, metallic sounds from a piano's frame and the metal body of a zarb (drum), and processed layers of a human voice saying "shh." The loss here is meant to be heard as an abstract process: loss of old worlds and knowledge, silencings direct and indirect.

    Kala Pierson is an American composer and sound artist. Vivid, expressive, and full of bold colors, her music has been performed in more than 30 countries on six continents, widely awarded and commissioned, and published by Universal Edition. She's held season-long composer residencies with American Opera Projects, Tribeca Performing Arts Center, and San Francisco Choral Artists. With deep interests in non-western musics, she's initiated many cross-cultural projects. Born in 1977, she studied composition at Eastman School of Music and now lives in Philadelphia with her spouses and son.

    5. Adam Paroussos - Mvt. I Audio Field

    Cosmophonic Fantasia is predominately a musique concrète film in three movements: I Audio Field, II Bamboo Mustard and III Fractal Reprise. This piece explores the metaphysical and expressive nature of sound and inspired by Sonata form. ‘Audio Field’ uses a collection of montaged film and sound samples and ‘remixes’ them together to turn the everyday experiences of sound into a dream-like sonic experience. Mvt 2,‘Bamboo Mustard’ uses collected fragments of live performances to piece together the journey of this character - Bamboo Mustard. The final movement Fractal Reprise concludes the film, exploring the underlying structures within the natural and sound.

    Adam Paroussos is an interdisciplinary sound artist and designer, just graduated from Central Saint Martins, BA Performance Design and Practice. His work is rooted in performative, collaborative and experimental approaches with sound and music. Under his Nova award-nominated alter-ego ‘Bamboo Mustard’, he performs with DIY instruments in a sound costume in the cracks and corners of London. Adam works across theatre, live art and film including composing the soundtrack for Andrea Zimmerman’s ‘Erase and Forget’ documentary and Jotdown’s physical theatre show ‘Haidar’.

    6. Katie McMurran – Alone

    This piece is an attempt to encapsulate the feelings of loneliness that arise when one is without an “other” and the frustration that comes from dealing with the expectations others place on those who are alone.

    Katie McMurran is a sound engineer for broadcast and composer. She uses field recordings, music and text to create sonic landscapes that explore internal dialogs and contemplations. Her pieces have been exhibited with Sound Cafe, New Town Arts, New Adventures in Sound Art and Association Octandre.

    7. devilsclub – Orwellian Comedy

    "orwellian comedy" is an improvised, abstract, electronic piece made with equipment that harnesses chaos for the purpose of modulation. This piece is a selection from a series of works entitled "aleatoria" I made while on the road travelling this year. This piece was live patched with no overdubs straight to 2 track.

    "devilsclub" is my vehicle for transmitting expressions of deeply felt emotions that defy words, and or the intensely absurd. Usually these transmissions are made live to 2 track with no overdubs. I am yet another humble participant in the renaissance of free speech and content that the Internet has made possible. As we rapidly approach the "end of employment" due to the maturing of the "Universal Machine" I have chosen to celebrate this odd time with a few odd sounds. The odder, the better.

    8. Jan Swinburne – RADIOdomestica

    The Radio series are live improvisation noise music tracks that use random broadcast samples and static as a form of audio aggression and commentary on contemporary broadcast radio experience, but they are mostly about putting random and programmed sound together.

    Jan Swinburne is a Canadian artist whose interdisciplinary practice uses traditional and digital media. Swinburne approaches all media from a painter’s sensibility with focus on visual code systems and complexity as an aesthetic framework. Some works evolve into larger site-sensitive installations and projects. An experimental approach to art is central to her practice.

    Swinburne’s digital work utilizes image de/re/generation and composing sound. Swinburne has collaborated with like minded international musicians and has screened in Brooklyn/New York City (Experi-MENTAL Festival 6), New Jersey (Filmideo/Index Art Centre), Washington DC (Auditory Learning Experience) and Toronto (VectorFestival). In 2015 she signed with Alrealon Musique.

  • different time different place different pitch: Sounds of Our Fatherland - Dani Gal & Achim Lengerer

    12th November 2017 @ 10:00 am - 10:45 am

    Shortly after the invention of the microphone Nazi Germany used field recordings to
    strengthen nationalistic feelings. With Yaron Jean.

    A series of radio programs By Dani Gal and Achim Lengerer. Originally commissioned by Documenta 14.

    The radio is an acousmatic instrument. Listeners do not see the origin of the sound,
    their experience is shaped both by the their own interpretation, and the manipulation
    of the producer in a political system.

    Our programs work on the space between documentary and Musique concrète.
    Each show focuses on political events that are connected to acoustic events. This
    creates an acousmatic documentary where the programs become sound-objects.
    The programs response to the 'image saturated society' discourse, by asking what is
    the function of sound as a document in times of live video feeds that can be broadcast
    by anyone.

    Dani Gal (born 1975, Jerusalem) lives and works in Berlin. He studied at the Bezalel
    Academy for Art and Design in Jerusalem; the Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende
    Künste Städelschule in Frankfurt; and the Cooper Union in New York. His flms and
    works have been shown widely, including: Documenta 14, 54th Venice Biennale
    (2011), The Istanbul Biennale (2011), The New Museum New York (2012),
    Kunsthalle St. Gallen Swizerland (2013), The Jewish museum New York (2014),
    Berlinale Forum Expanded (2014), Kunsthaus Zurich (2015) Kunsthalle Wien (2015)
    And more.

    Achim Lengerer works on political questions of speech and language that he
    thematizes in performances, radio plays or spatializes within installations and
    publications. Lengerer founded different collaborative projects such as freitagsküche
    in Frankfurt a. M. and voiceoverhead, with Dani Gal. Since 2009 Lengerer runs the
    Berlin based showroom and publishing house Scriptings. Different Artists are invited
    – all of which are working with the formats of script and text within their processes of
    production. Lengerer is currently working on his Ph.D. at Goldsmiths, University of
    London, UK, on the format of the rehearsal as an actual format for socio-political
    negotiations.

    1. Siobhain Ma - you can't go on indulging yourself

    https://siobhainma.com/

    2. Lin Li - The Star (abridged) by HG Wells

    In this series of audio work by Lin Li, abridged versions of short stories in the public domain are created by using the first sentences in all or some of the paragraphs of the original text. The disconnected sentences form a semi-coherent structure within which other sounds are weaved together to accentuate the enigmatic quality of the narrative, providing space for imagination.

    Originally from Hong Kong, Lin Li is now based in Scotland. She has been using sound and moving image in her creative practice since 2011.

    http://www.linli-art.com

    3. Matthew Grouse - Only Solace

    "Anxiety is the dizziness of freedom." - Søren Kierkegaard

    As we exit childhood, a pessimism seems to ingrain itself in our social awareness, leaving the sheltered view of the world behind. An unavoidable atmosphere of anxiety amongst the general public fills the air like a dense fog. The various factors that amalgamate to create this feeling and the often surprising methods of alleviation can be extremely sporadic and surprising. The structure of the piece is based around these escalations and descents in the feeling of being overwhelmed.

    Matthew Grouse, 21, is in his final year at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, studying composition with David Fennessy and Electro/Acoustic composition with Dr Alistair MacDonald. His work regularly combines media and is often concerned with human frailties and the everyday. Another large source of inspiration comes from a variety of arts, especially a love of film. Matthew was awarded the 2017 Kimie Composition Prize which resulted in a commission from Live Music Now, supported by the Kimie Trust. In 2016, Matthew was the winner of the Walter and Dinah Wolfe Memorial Award, adjudicated by Sir James Macmillan.

    4. The Doll - Grumpy Gravediggers Amateur Hour

    The Doll has been making hideous solo sounds since 2005. Her no-fi aesthetic is a hit with toddlers. The Doll also has a sideline in field recording, diapercore & household appliances.
    She has recently been playing in Seattle noise improv bands TBA & PUNTERS and Auckland bands Septithe & Unknown Tofu. Her US/Aotearoa collective project, Contact Mike, has over 40 band members aged 14 months and up.

    "The Doll can be constituted by mixing 3 parts experiment, 4 parts noise, 1 part ritual, and 2 parts theatre, with a pinch of space dust." - Alt Music

    http://www.dadashopping.net/

    5. Jaxton Su Jingxiang – Dreamscape: PE Climb

    Dreamscape is an exploration of how sounds in dreams can be translated aurally to form a narrative that could potentially aid in the understanding of the self. It aims to provide the audience with a sonic experience of the artist's self-portrait as told by his dreams.

    Jaxton Su (b. 1988) is a Singaporean Visual Artist, based in Glasgow, UK. He enjoys experimenting with the use of colours in portraying peculiar narratives that delve into the notions of archetypes and the imaginary. Taking inspirations from the natural environment, Jaxton often creates bizarre dreamlike worlds with a whimsical composition of elements to bring across his ideas. Working with a variety of different mediums such as painting and installation, he hopes to create a visual utopia that could form a resonation with others and spark an imagination.

    6. Garrett Tiedemann - Last Thursday (in Fragments) Episode 3 - No Photography. No Video

    In 2015 Don Chambers hosted "a music and other things entertainment" each month called The Last Thursday. Each month had its own theme and governed not only the types of content, but way of presentation for the evening. These evenings lived and died in the moment with very little social media promotion or archiving. In series 2 of The White Whale we offer snippets of these evenings; providing first glimpses beyond the nights of what went down and why their existence foregoing online permanence is important. Visit http://www.donchambersmusic.com/ for music and more.

    Garrett Tiedemann is a radio producer, journalist, filmmaker and composer. He works for American Public Media covering the breadth and depth of composed music for YourClassical and Classical Minnesota Public Radio while also producing films, music videos, music and the podcast The White Whale via his production company CyNar Pictures. As a freelancer, he has lent production and compositional approaches to the podcasts Vanishing Ink, Here Be Monsters, The Organist, ARRVLS, Life of the Law, and Top Score. Additionally, he manages production and strategy for the oral history/storytelling project SisterStory.

    1 Jonty Semper - One Minute Silence 1929

    2 - Katy Hundertmark - From Before. To Here (16:19)

    The experimental soundscape `From Before. To Here´ is a collection of 23 autonomous answering machine messages, linking various moments that now lie in the past. The missed calls were recorded for the exhibition `Ignore The Radiators ́ as part of Glasgow Open House Festival 2017 and represent the result of a durational performance where Hundertmark called her own phone from different places over time. The listener will experience a sonic collage of dissonant sound messages that tell an interlaced narrative made of noise, voices, conversations snippets, silence and field recordings.

    Katy Hundertmark (1992, Oman) is a Scottish-German artist with a special interest in the threshold of the visual and performing arts. Her practice explores questions of identity, mostly using her own self as the vantage point and implementation for enquiries into the human condition. Hundertmark moved to Glasgow in 2015 and now holds an MLitt Degree in Photography and Moving Image from the Glasgow School of Art. Over the past years her work has been exhibited internationally in Germany, Great Britain, Israel, Italy and China.

  • Sketching An Arc - Jason Lescalleet

    12th November 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

    Jason Lescalleet assembles recordings to create a narrative meditation on the passage of time and our perception thereof.

    Since establishing himself as a preeminent voice in contemporary electro-acoustic study, Jason Lescalleet has exploded the notion of what is possible within the realm of tape-based music. His recorded catalog acknowledges a diversity of application, from lo-fi reel-to-reel soundscaping and work for hand-held cassette machines, to digital sampling and computer generated composition. Lescalleet's live actions further expand his ouevre to include work with video, dance, performance art and multi-media concerns.

    In the past two decades, Lescalleet has gradually and painstakingly compiled a compelling discography on notable labels such as Erstwhile, RRR, Intransitive Recordings, Kye, Celebrate Psi-Phenomenon, Hanson Records, Chondritic Sound, and most recently via his own Glistening Examples imprint. He has collaborated with Kevin Drumm, Aaron Dilloway, Graham Lambkin, Phill Niblock, Joe Colley, John Hudak, Rafael Toral, Thomas Ankersmit, and CM Von Hausswolff, among others, and during this time he’s built a solid reputation for delivering a visceral live experience in concert.

    He currently lives in Maine, where he works and operates the Glistening Examples publishing label and the Glistening Labs studio for audio recording and mastering services.

  • Static Flux - Nichola Scrutton & Zoe Strachan live in the studio

    12th November 2017 @ 1:30 pm - 2:00 pm
    the studio

    Static Flux focuses on out-of-time memory states, and how they can be both static and
    in flux. We are interested in exploring narrative and time through chance encounters
    with remnants, fragments and the ephemera of past lives. Metaphors for our endeavour
    include the remnants found in second-hand bags and the pockets of clothing, or in
    notes scribbled on the back of black and white photographs. There is a melancholy air
    to these things, but as with any kind of haunting, also the potential for fear, and for
    deeper connections with our own sense of mortality.

    Zoë Strachan is an award-winning novelist, short story writer and librettist. Her most
    recent novel, Ever Fallen in Love, was shortlisted for the Scottish Book Awards and the
    Green Carnation Prize. Her opera The Lady from the Sea, composed by Craig
    Armstrong, won a Herald Angel Award at the Edinburgh International Festival. She
    teaches Creative Writing at the University of Glasgow. Previous collaborations for
    Radiophrenia are Negative Spaces with Nick Fells and In Transit with Nichola
    Scrutton.

    Recorded on October 23rd in Halle. Special thanks Sarah Washington, Knut Aufermann and the whole Radiorevolten team.

    Imagine going back to the first days of radio when tape splicing and editing as well as sound effects and sound processing were not available. Imagine a time when everything was mono and all actors, noisemakers, Foley artists and speakers would gather in front of a single microphone to broadcast in real time. Imagine a sound art piece, a noise composition, a radio play, a radio documentary where all sounds are exclusively derived from the human voice.

    While going back to those early times, we are travelling from the future and we are bringing with us all the ideas and aesthetic worlds that new technologies have implanted in us. How can we reinvent the possibilities given to us by technology?
    Along these lines Alessandro Bosetti and Anne-Laure Pigache helped develop a collective piece with a fearless group of workshop participants during the massive Radiorevolten radio festival in Halle in October 2016. The live performance happened in a secluded room in front of a single microphone - an original and huge Melodium 42B from 1951 - while the somewhat baffled audience sat in front of a single loudspeaker in another separate room. Where did these sounds come from? At first it sounded as if an amorphous, gigantic monster was trying to extrude itself from the tiny acoustic hole at the centre of the loudspeaker. Eventually as ears grew used to the new situation and learned to project themselves across this sonorous worm-hole a new radiophonic universe emerged, monophonic but wide and deep, physical and textural, populated by abstract stories and characters and inhabited by a beautiful text by Mark Vernon. Bosetti and Pigache have been exploring monophonic real-time radio in a series of workshops titled Hand Made Radio since 2012.

    From Gabi Schaffner's diary : " Maybe this becomes more comprehensible when I say that the text that sparked up in fragments between the choir of breathers, sniffers, grunts, snorts and moans dealt with a mediation practice that preceded the vocal improvisations. Instead of looking at a mandala the group focused on a speaker. The main body of the text was written by Mark Vernon and interspersed with the observations from other members of the group. As with Bosetti’s former piece, the dynamic of the play grounded in complex patterns of voices that varied in loudness and intensity, that same in pairs, single or collectively. Even though there was zero stereo effect the performance evoked a sense of space and intense interplay. As the piece came to a close the shadowy figures of the workshop members glided into vision with Anne-Laure and Alessandro improvising a slow dance on each side of the still whispering speaker. Applause. "

     


  • Goto and Collins Studio with Chris Malcolm live in the studio

    12th November 2017 @ 2:30 pm - 3:00 pm

    EDEN3 is a Futures Agenda that assumes a period or grief and reflection appropriate to the anthropocene. Followed by an obsessive attention to living things: playful experiments with experience and subjectivity, new sculptural interface and iterative development of environmental art practices.

    Reiko Goto and Tim Collins are environmental artists, working together since 1985.

    They embrace an ecosystems methodology, collaborating with a range of disciplines, communities and other living things. They are interested in the ways that art and imagination contribute to practical wisdom and democratic discourse about ethics and human values. The work primarily focuses upon natural public places and everyday experience of environmental commons. An ethical-aesthetic impulse permeates the artwork.

    Goto orients herself through an experimental practice of empathic exchange with people, places and things. She completed her PhD in Ecology and Environmental Art in Public Places in 2012. Collins seeks transformative experience and ideas that can leverage small creative freedoms for people, places and things. He completed a PhD in Art, Ecology and Planning in 2007.

    They are known for a phenomenological approach to site conditioned public art and a radical democratic approach to post-industrial landscape and ecological restoration. Since 2007, they have been immersed in an experimental approach to the perception and understanding of the relationship between individual trees, greenhouse gases and climate change. They have also begun some new work that examines forests in the 21st Century. They have worked in North America, Europe and Asia.

  • The kind of things that we fight against but they ignore us, they silence us and they are still doing it - Katherine Ka Yi Liu

    12th November 2017 @ 3:45 pm - 4:00 pm

    “The kind of things that we fight against everyday but they ignore us, they silence us and they are still doing it.” is a fictional conversation that was initiated to antagonise the problematic system(s) and structure(s) within the institutions.

    Through the artist’s personal experience and observation as a woman of color, the work examines, questions and provokes the perpetual rules of powers.

    Katherine Ka Yi Liu (b. 1989, Los Angeles) distinguishes herself as an Asian woman who stands robustly as a contemporary artist and activist. Liu grew up mostly in Hong Kong where she began her studies in the Fine Art department at the Hong Kong Arts School. Focusing on Fine Art Sculpture, Liu earned a BA (Hons) in 2013 at the University of Brighton, UK, and she obtained her Masters in Fine Art Practice at The Glasgow School of Art, UK. Since then, she has been actively engaging and exhibiting in Glasgow.

  • LENGHEDIVACJE Ep.5 - Renato Rinaldi

    12th November 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 5:30 pm

    Ten stories for the radio – Five collected stories elaborated into five sound tales

    Project by Renato Rinaldi Production and organisation by Hybrida Pieces by Slavek Kwi - Eric la casa - Antje Vowinckel - Ward Weis - Giuseppe Ielasi Funded by Arlef / Agjenzie Regjonâl pe Lenghe Furlane Aired by Frioulian local Radio Onde Furlane

    Language is a sound, before being a meaning, and it’s the first human element in a soundscape. The stories have then been selectet according to the ability of the teller in using the language in a dramatic way more than for the stories themselves. For each story we have commissioned a music piece in which the recorded tale had to be the core of the composition. Such tranformation could only be possible in the hands of people who doesn’t have access to the meaning of the words. That is why we have chosen musicians the furthest away possible from Friulian geography, culture and language so as to have them relate with a new, as far as this is possible today, sound context.

    The title literally means cow tongue but it refers to a edible plant: Rumex patientia, known as patience dock, "garden patience", "herb patience", or "monk's rhubarb", is a herbaceous perennial plant species of the genus Rumex, belonging to the family Polygonaceae. In spring it is often consumed as a leaf vegetable in Southern Europe.

    The Friulian language is a mosaic of units, more often micro-units, territorial, each one with its own linguistic nuances and peculiar sound. The development of such peculiarities is the result of a long and continuous exchange with the environment, which each community entertains while setting its roots in a certain area. Language is a sound, before being a meaning, and it’s the first human element in a soundscape. The project Lenghedivacje endeavours at bringing out the sound of the Friulian language, throughout the collection of recorded material concerning historical or personal events. The stories have then been selected according to the ability of the teller in using the language in a dramatic way more than for the stories themselves. The events told are of course significant also as testimony but are especially extraordinary for the way in which they are “spoken” because they are unique and unique is the language they are using. Inside these stories there is a rich musical potential but in order to bring it out we have pushed the language over the wall of sense. For each story we have commissioned a music piece in which the recorded tale had to be the core of the composition. Such transformation could only be possible in the hands of people who could appreciate exclusively the sound of the language thus deprived of its dramatic element linked to sense. That is why we have chosen musicians the furthest away possible from Friulian geography, culture and language so as to have them relate with a new, as far as this is possible today, sound context. The composers selected for this task are people who routinely work with the sound of language and who use the radio as a means of expression investigating its communication possibilities. Each one of them was asked to work on a music composition starting exclusively form the recorded material assigned to them. The result is a series of compositions created from the phonemes (sound bits) of the Friulian language though enjoyable also away from its understanding.

    Elaborated into 5b - Mitjakuti by Giuseppe Ielasi – (Italy)
    I have worked very seldomly with voices and words as ultimate source for my compositions. Though in this case the challenge seemed rather interesting. Actually I never considered the issue of language musicality since I’ve always treated all sounds in the same manner. The project’s theme though required a certain regard for the voice and the language. However until the sounds came out of a computer file they seemed untouchable, it was only possible to listen to them for as they were. Maybe what came up to my mind was the simplest, though most awsome, way of transforming the material into a music instrument: I simply changed the sound player by printing a vinyl. The voice thus turned into tool that could be played and manipolated, I was therefore able to exepriment a number of sampling techniques, which are a consolidate baggage throughout many music genres.

    Renato Rinaldi studied acting, composition and electronic music. He has worked extensively in theater, first as an actor and then as a sound artist. As a musician he has composed music for theatre, radio plays and documentaries, video and sound installations. He is interested in composition applied to the relationship between sound /environment. He has also produced radio plays, documentaries and radio reportages, aired by Radio RAI and Radio France.

     


  • The Buffer Zone

    12th November 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 6:00 pm

    (1) Ricardo Paraiso Silvestre - Hearing Vibrations (10:01)

    Hearing vibrations, when inaudible sound transposes senses and touch goes to hearing. We feel vibrations but we don't hear them. They are never the less present. Capturing these vibrations with sensors bring these sounds back into the realm of the audible from the sense of touch. These vibrations are transmitted through solids and the sound captured is different for each medium where the vibration is present while the source of the vibration remains the same. This work is based on this premises that although the vibrating source may be the same, the captured sound varies wit the medium. The sounds captured for this work are of the vibrations produced by a small vibrating motor that is placed on various materials thus producing different sounds.

    Ricardo Paraíso Silvestre is a sound artist living and working in Oeiras, Portugal. With a degree in plant pathology, he went on to study sculpture at art school and later got a masters in multimedia communication. All of his works have field recordings as a starting point. Both audible and inaudible sounds are used to compose audio pieces. His works have been played in a number of exhibits and radio stations both in Europe and the United States and was part of a CD edition of electromagnetic sound works

  • Sketching An Arc - Jason Lescalleet

    12th November 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

    Jason Lescalleet assembles recordings to create a narrative meditation on the passage of time and our perception thereof.

    Since establishing himself as a preeminent voice in contemporary electro-acoustic study, Jason Lescalleet has exploded the notion of what is possible within the realm of tape-based music. His recorded catalog acknowledges a diversity of application, from lo-fi reel-to-reel soundscaping and work for hand-held cassette machines, to digital sampling and computer generated composition. Lescalleet's live actions further expand his ouevre to include work with video, dance, performance art and multi-media concerns.

    In the past two decades, Lescalleet has gradually and painstakingly compiled a compelling discography on notable labels such as Erstwhile, RRR, Intransitive Recordings, Kye, Celebrate Psi-Phenomenon, Hanson Records, Chondritic Sound, and most recently via his own Glistening Examples imprint. He has collaborated with Kevin Drumm, Aaron Dilloway, Graham Lambkin, Phill Niblock, Joe Colley, John Hudak, Rafael Toral, Thomas Ankersmit, and CM Von Hausswolff, among others, and during this time he’s built a solid reputation for delivering a visceral live experience in concert. He currently lives in Maine, where he works and operates the Glistening Examples publishing label and the Glistening Labs studio for audio recording and mastering services.

  • Live-to-Air Performances - Sarah Angliss & Stephen Hiscock, Anthony Autumn & Chris MacInnes, Carrie Skinner

    12th November 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

    A live-to-air performance from CCA Glasgow. Tickets are free from CCA box office.

    http://cca-glasgow.com/programme/radiophenia2017

    Sarah Angliss and Stephen Hiscock - Percipient

    Theremin, carillon, ventriloquism, percussion and automata feature in this performance inspired by the electrical mysticism in GEO S Hazelhurst’s ‘The Invisible Telegraph of Tomorrow’. Writing in 1887, 14 years before a faint radio signal was first transmitted across the Atlantic, the author prophesized a time when messages would be transmitted around the globe by telepaths lined along the shores of each continent. This musical per-formance will include some reenactments of experiments in chapter 1, Hazelhurst’s trea-tise on thought transference.

    Sarah Angliss is a composer, automatist and live performer whose music explores resonances between English folklore and early notions of sound and machines. Sarah’s particularly known for her skills on theremin and recorder and for the robotic instruments she designs and builds to work with her on stage. Sarah also composes for live film scores and theatre, most recently for Eugene O’Neill’s expressionist play ‘The Hairy Ape’ (at The Old Vic, London, and Park Avenue Armory, New York, directed by Richard Jones). She’s currently composing an electroacoustic chamber opera on the life and death of Charles Byrne (with librettist Ross Sutherland, for Aldeburgh Music and the Jerwood Charitable Trust) and creating sounds and music for a live stage version of The Twilight Zone at The Almeida Theatre, London. Her recent album Ealing Feeder was released in April 2017. “The most inventive album I’ve heard in a long while…a testament to Angliss’s imagination and sheer musicality”, Simon Reynolds, 4 Columns, New York. “A highly atmospheric and compelling listen…drawing on a dense skien of real pasts and imagined futures to talk lucidly and provocatively about the present”, Robert Barry, The Wire Magazine.

    Stephen Hiscock is a composer, drummer and percussionist, working for film, advertisements, theatre and the concert hall. His works have been performed at the Melbourne Festival, Aardklop Festival (South Africa), Purcell Room, Royal Festival Hall, Glastonbury, Latitude and a national tour of Ghana. Most recently he’s been writing for the theatre. He was composer and live soloist in Complicite’s Lionboy which toured in 2015 to the UK, Hong Kong, South Korea, South Africa and played for two weeks on Broadway in New York. Also ‘X&Y’ – a two-hander with Marcus Du Sautoy and Victoria Gould – produced by the Science Museum and performed at all the major UK festivals. In 1992 he was a founder member of percussion group ensemblebash, performing world premieres of works by Steve Reich, Stewart Copeland, Nitin Sawhney, Django Bates, Eric Whitacre, Imogen Heap, Keith Tippett and Tan Dun. His percussion features extensively on Angliss’ debut album Ealing Feeder. He’s currently on European tour with Mark Eiztel.

    Anthony Autumn & Christopher MacInnes - Interior Ocean

    For their new live performance Anthony and Christopher will be generating a semi-improvised composition of vocality and soundscaping. Drawing on writings and field-recordings gathered over the past year, they will create an immersive and disorientating journey through an imagined sub-aquatic landscape.

    Interior Ocean is a slow crawl through the jellied monoculture swamping the petrified machine-scape of global capitalism. Originating from a fascination in the unique biology of jellyfish and the strange relationship they have to globalisation, the performance will explore the complex entanglement between built and natural ecologies. Both collateral interference and agent of globalisation, the jellyfish becomes a parallel entity for the SSRI-infused emotional labourer, the symbiotic host of insomniac-twitching, 24 hour on-screen living.

    Anthony Autumn is an artist whose varying practice centres on writing and collaboration. Previously a dedicated performance poet and editor-at-large of HOAX publication, Anthony currently programmes and runs art and creative writing workshops and contributes written and spoken work to publications, exhibitions and events.

    Christopher MacInnes is an artist based in Glasgow. Working across computer-generated animation, installation, sculpture and computer programming, MacInnes draws on visual languages from consumer technology, the corporate web and science fiction.
    Through the creation of immersive environments, both online and IRL, he explores the heavy infrastructure of information based cultures against the glossy hyper-texture of our luxury-tech devices with the aim of articulating the practice and nature of being human in a simultaneously industrial and intangible environment.
    Recent shows and projects include SPORES OF LOVE, David Dale Gallery (Glasgow 2017), 4k made me sick (ArebyteLASER, London), (Retina Gothic, Intermedia, CCA (Glasgow 2016), Small Gate, Infinite Field, Generator Projects (Dundee 2015) and Boot Signal, Embassy Gallery (Edinburgh 2015).

    Carrie Skinner - woah oh oh oh, on the radio -adio -adio

    This new visual performance for the radio woah oh oh oh, on the radio -adio -adio, develops out of an attempt to synchronise the individual and collective rhythms of its multiple and variously located live and future audiences, by pulling them together into the shared aspirational forever of a disco lyric.

    Carrie Skinner lives and works between Glasgow and Berlin. She is into figuring out contemporary cultural relationships with time and its multiple concepts through popular imagery and themes from Gothic and Science-Fiction genres. Ghosts, telephones and disco music haunt her practice, playfully illustrating the academic discourses of spectralities and liveness while testing the limits of the transitory relationship between audience and performer. She reluctantly makes solo performances for expediency and economy, and seeks out scenarios that anticipate spectacle and demand virtuosity but probably expose her failure and amateurism. Recent performances include; Lutz Mommartz retrospective for Transit Arts, Glasgow, 2017;Nowhere for TAKE ME SOMEWHERE, Tron Theatre, Glasgow, UK 2016, Time Isn’t Holding Up Time Isn’t After Us, Old Hairdressers, Glasgow, 2016; Cherry Picker at Rhubaba, Edinburgh, 2016. Published work includes; ‘there’s something happening somewhere: a score for a rehearsal or a re-enactment’, The Burning Sand VI ed. Sarah Lowndes, Glasgow, 2016; ‘Mary This One’s For You: A Romantic Drama in Three Acts’, Gnommero: Multiplicity ed. Sarah Tripp and Richard Taylor, Glasgow, 2015.

  • 100 Books - Chiara Ambrosio and John Bently

    12th November 2017 @ 10:30 pm - 12:00 am

    “100 Books” is a work for 100 voices, and consists of a marathon reading of 100 variations of the same poem, all of them written by John Bently. It is a collective act, a celebration of the power and commitment of released words, an elegy to the song, the poem, the human voice. It is a reminder that no matter how ferocious the tyranny, there are some things that cannot be erased, burned, suppressed, enslaved, imprisoned or silenced. You can kill the singers but never the song, once sung.

    Featuring the voices of (amongst others):

    John Bently
    Amanda Palmer
    Iain Sinclair
    Brian Catling
    Ben Rivers
    Carol Chant
    Mikey Kirkpatrick
    Gareth Evans
    Marcia Farquhar

    Chiara is a filmmaker working with animation, experimental film, documentary and sound to explore the ways in which we perceive, remember, articulate and preserve personal and collective histories and place through the filter of memory and the imagination.
    Chiara is also the founder and curator of The Light & Shadow Salon, a monthly film night at The Horse Hospital in Bloomsbury.

    John Bently is an artist, performer, poet and bookmaker. He has published 54 books for his Liver & Lights Scriptorium, all of them exploring and illuminating the poetics of the small and marginal.
    His books are often transformed into songs and performed live with his band Bones & The Aft.

  • Hearspool 19:Obscene Drawings - Momus

    13th November 2017 @ 12:00 am - 1:00 am

    A sort of irrational exploration of “the questing beast”, the artist who goes beyond the limits of propriety and shocks — or merely tries to shake — the bourgeois order.

    During 2013 Momus created a series of radiophonic programmes for Newcastle radio station BasicFM entitled Hearspool. Mesmeric, evocative, and made in the tradition of German neue hoerspiel.

    Momus is a Scot who makes songs, books and art. He lives between Europe and Japan.

  • different time different place different pitch:Mulkelhood - Dani Gal & Achim Lengerer

    13th November 2017 @ 1:00 am - 2:00 am

    Czech political prisoners in the communist era formed a special kind of brotherhood
    that lasted years after their release. With Jana Kopelentova Rehak.

    A series of radio programs By Dani Gal and Achim Lengerer. Originally commissioned by Documenta 14.

    The radio is an acousmatic instrument. Listeners do not see the origin of the sound,
    their experience is shaped both by the their own interpretation, and the manipulation
    of the producer in a political system.

    Our programs work on the space between documentary and Musique concrète.
    Each show focuses on political events that are connected to acoustic events. This
    creates an acousmatic documentary where the programs become sound-objects.
    The programs response to the 'image saturated society' discourse, by asking what is
    the function of sound as a document in times of live video feeds that can be broadcast
    by anyone.

    Dani Gal (born 1975, Jerusalem) lives and works in Berlin. He studied at the Bezalel
    Academy for Art and Design in Jerusalem; the Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende
    Künste Städelschule in Frankfurt; and the Cooper Union in New York. His flms and
    works have been shown widely, including: Documenta 14, 54th Venice Biennale
    (2011), The Istanbul Biennale (2011), The New Museum New York (2012),
    Kunsthalle St. Gallen Swizerland (2013), The Jewish museum New York (2014),
    Berlinale Forum Expanded (2014), Kunsthaus Zurich (2015) Kunsthalle Wien (2015)
    And more.

    Achim Lengerer works on political questions of speech and language that he
    thematizes in performances, radio plays or spatializes within installations and
    publications. Lengerer founded different collaborative projects such as freitagsküche
    in Frankfurt a. M. and voiceoverhead, with Dani Gal. Since 2009 Lengerer runs the
    Berlin based showroom and publishing house Scriptings. Different Artists are invited
    – all of which are working with the formats of script and text within their processes of
    production. Lengerer is currently working on his Ph.D. at Goldsmiths, University of
    London, UK, on the format of the rehearsal as an actual format for socio-political
    negotiations.

  • Foundsoundscape - Janek Schaefer

    13th November 2017 @ 2:00 am - 7:00 am

    It's been 20 years exactly since I created 'Recorded Delivery', which quietly collected sounds of the inner realm of the Post Office in March 1995. Back then I could only use cassettes to capture sound, and there was no internet or digital in my world. Two decades later the technical options are staggering, but simplicity and calm is more in demand than ever before.

    Foundsoundscape was inspired by the very first Digital Radio station in the UK, that simply played a recording of a rural location. Radio you could just leave running to add a peaceful ambience to your environment indoors. It heralded a new media paradigm, as digital broadcasting offered more capacity than requred for the first time, and that space needed filling. At the same time on TV, Channel 4 was broadcasting Big Brother live 24hours, and at night I loved to tune-in my analogue TV sets all over the house, and the shed, so I could hear the housemates gently sleeping as I worked through the night. Since then infomercials, and gambling TV have taken over, and I greatly miss that sense of real-time space, that does not demand your attention. Foundsoundscape quietly underscores your environment, by creating new ones from others.

    Radio is special as it was the first medium that could be experienced by many people in many places, all at the same time. Foundsoundscape.com is an online radio station that streams live 24hours a day, which can now be broadcast to people all over the globe. Using over 1000 calm & curious location recordings captured by 100+ recordists, the sounds were simply edited, and then played back three at a time at various volumes in shuffle mode, and the result is never the same twice. You often hear the edges of time as files begin or stop playing mid flow. If you listen ever so carefully you can also hear me working in the studio at the end of the garden late at night, as I have a live mic feeding into the mix. I sometimes like to work with tv radio & music playing, to absorb information, give me ideas, create and share. Email me for a shout-out!

    My hope is that others will find foundsoundscape enjoyable and leave it running all day & all night long, just like a radio! It's as simple as that, with one click. A salute to serendipity and shared sonic space. Bookmark it. Play it in rooms around the house. Share it . . Take a break . . .
    Every day is different.
    Happy Daze.

  • 03222016-000 - Jeff Kolar & jonCates

    13th November 2017 @ 7:45 am - 8:00 am

    We are interested in creating new electromagnetic infrastructures and proposing narratives or experiences that can be lived in these ephemeral sonic spaces. Our performances utilize an array of electronic and analog instruments, as well as devices designed and fabricated by hand.The tracks on this page were originally produced for our installation and live performance at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago in March 2016. Using variations in speed, long durations, patience, and repetition, we built up musical and auditory foundations through tracks and technologies, slowly filling the museum with various soundscapes. While broadcasting across analog radio signals (via Radius) and digital transmissions (via NUMBERS.FM), we physically moved through the museum after setting up two stages on two floors to perform from.

    Press/Review: https://mcachicago.org/Stories/Blog/2017/06/03222016

    Jeff Kolar (b. Chicago, US) is a independent sound artist, radio producer, and curator. He is the Founder and Artistic Director of Radius, an experimental radio broadcast platform established in 2010. His work, described as "speaker-shredding" (Half Letter Press), "wonderfully strange" (John Corbett), and "characteristically curious" (Marc Weidenbaum), activates sound in unconventional, temporary, and ephemeral ways using appropriation and remix as a critical practice. His solo and collaborative projects, installations, and public performances often investigate the mundane sonic nuances of everyday electronic devices. He has performed and exhibited widely across the United States, and at international venues and festivals such as the New Museum (New York, US), The Kitchen (New York, US), Moogfest (Durham, US), CTM Festival for Adventurous Music (Berlin, DE), Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago (Chicago, US), Kino Šiška (Ljubljana, SL), Le Cube Centre de création numérique (Paris, FR), ORF RadioKulturhaus (Vienna, AT), LAK Festival of Nordic Sound Art (København, Denmark), among others.

    10. Kamen Ivanov Nedev (Acoustic Mirror) - Ghostwalk01: Atocha

    1. Kyle Vanderburg - Tempest in a Teakettle

    The title suggests the small problems we consider daily, waiting as they build within us. ‘Waiting’ is explored in several ways, and uses the medium to augment these daily dramas. After being introduced to the teakettle, the noise of rain and wind begin to fill the sonic space. Soft rains and distant thunder churn over one another in a tempest, giving way to cautious harmonies from the wail of a storm siren. Just as soon, the sirens fade: A full kettle has come to boil. The unease of waiting blurs the sense of scale between the tempest and the teakettle.

    Composer Kyle Vanderburg (b. 1986) grew up in Missouri where the Ozarks meet the Mississippi River valley. Raised on southern gospel and American hymnody, his music tries to walk the line between eliciting nostalgia and devising innovative sonic worlds. His electronic works place familiar sounds in new contexts, his acoustic works feature catchy melodies and too many time signatures. He writes music he hopes his parents will like. He holds degrees from Drury University and the University of Oklahoma and has studied under Carlyle Sharpe, Marvin Lamb, Konstantinos Karathanasis, and Roland Barrett. He'd be delighted if you checked out KyleVanderburg.com.

    2. Jaxton Su Jingxiang - Sword Magic

    Dreamscape is an exploration of how sounds in dreams can be translated aurally to form a narrative that could potentially aid in the understanding of the self. It aims to provide the audience with a sonic experience of the artist's self-portrait as told by his dreams.

    Jaxton Su (b. 1988) is a Singaporean Visual Artist, based in Glasgow, UK. He enjoys experimenting with the use of colours in portraying peculiar narratives that delve into the notions of archetypes and the imaginary. Taking inspirations from the natural environment, Jaxton often creates bizarre dreamlike worlds with a whimsical composition of elements to bring across his ideas. Working with a variety of different mediums such as painting and installation, he hopes to create a visual utopia that could form a resonation with others and spark an imagination.

    http://www.jaxtonsu.net

    3. Hagai Izenberg - Chronicle 6

    Chronicles is a weekly format of works that attempt to trace the sounds and happenings on a weekly basis and compress them to 4-5 minutes of sonic experience. Fresh raw materials were collected every week including field recordings, samples from radio & tv and recordings sent by listeners of RadioArt program by Meira Asher on 106fm, who featured the project. It includes 6 episodes (total of 30 minutes) of 6 weeks from Oct 6th till Nov 17th, 2016 and attempts to capture everyday sounds together with the daily news & events, tragedies and political discourse next to advertisements and entertainment.

    Hagai is a sound artist, composer and musician and a founder member of the electronic duo Rendezvous. Born in 1978, he lives and works in Israel. His work focuses on collecting and combining field recordings together with radio broadcasting, using sounds we’re exposed to every day in the public and domestic spheres, often in passing or involuntarily. The result is a multi-layered restless composition created in real-time, using pre-recorded sound objects and live sources; a compressed sonic experience of our daily lives.

    4. Bernardo Jiminez - 3am

    The Question is one of the longest running projects of this kind in latin america, with more than two decades of constant work. TreesOnComa begun as a side project to -eLaMoRTe-, in order to release under this tag more experimental sound/instrumental pieces and also to offer visual artists the chance to commission sound works for their creations. TreesOnComa has also worked with theatre companies in the past.

    5. Jamie Livingstone – Between Breaths

    Puddle Rainbows Missed is a poetry EP by Jamie Livingstone produced by future garage and techno DJs Blackboxx and Acidtone. It centres around the idea of the Mandelbrot Set and iterative patterns. How do these forms commune with the brittle, coarse and tender everyday muck? What are people up to with cucumbers? Who knows anyway? It’s poems mixed with samples. It’s sound and shape.

    I started writing poetry when Mr Harrington read us Yeats and almost stopped when I heard what age he lost his virginity.
    Yeats, that is, not Mr Harrington.
    Who knows what he gets up to.
    I am 26. Yeats was 31. I live in Oban. I have no children. I have a full set of teeth.

    6. Alexis Weaver - Hot Wheels Lead to Melted Tyres

    A toy car, or a monster truck? Zippy, energised gestures leave behind deep, textured trails, exaggerating small sounds with a child’s passion. This piece is part of a larger suite of works drawing on the sounds of childhood toys.

    Alexis Weaver is a young electroacoustic composer based in Sydney, Australia. Growing up close to the pristine beaches and landscapes of Jervis Bay, Alexis is fascinated by sounds of the natural world. By fusing her classical education with music technology, Alexis aims to create powerful abstract works and bring the wonder of sound to new audiences.

    Alexis has composed soundtracks for animation, short stories, radio, and the Sydney Fringe Festival. Recently, her acousmatic and radiophonic works have been broadcast overseas in France and Scotland. Alexis was awarded First Place and People’s Choice Award in the 2016 and 2015 University of Sydney Verge Awards respectively for her acousmatic works. Alexis’ 2017 work, Spin, will be included on RMN Classical’s upcoming album, Electroacoustic and Beyond Volume 2.

    7. Gregory Kramer - Vampire State Building

    Vampire State Building is an eight-channel audio performed piece using lobby recordings of eight New York City landmark buildings (Empire State Building, Trump Tower, Chrysler Building, Waldorf-Astoria, Lipstick Building, Plaza Hotel, 30 Rockefeller Plaza and 1 World Trade Center). This version has been mixed down to stereo.

    Gregory Kramer is a multidisciplinary artist working with sound and space. Taking inspiration from his archaeological curiosity of abandoned places and his interest in mythology, he searches for ghosts among the ruins and seeks to unearth evidence of forgotten histories through sound. His sound work uses field recordings, found materials, electronics, instruments and radio transmissions. His work was featured in the Sonom International Sound Art Festival, and he recently composed for a dance piece performed at the Setia Darma Museum of Masks and Puppetry in Bali. He has album releases on Impulsive Habitat and International Winners.

    8. Katie Currie - Is there anybody out there

    Creating artwork that relates to humanities interest in finding life on other planets and our creation of space travel in order to reach out to these potential beings is a particular interest of mine, the way we have created other means to reach them through physical contact or transmission is fascinating to me. ‘Is there anyone out there?’ consists of a collection of audio clips that are a combination of mysterious signals received from space and unexplainable radio transmissions alongside a Morse code translation of the phrase ‘is there anybody out there?’ which plays intermittently.

    9. Amanda Brannin - I tried ruling the world

    "i tried ruling the world"

    -spoken poem/ soundscape

    I'm a young Texan currently held between mountains in East Iceland making whatever calls to me, often using my actions and voice.

  • Is Land a Voice - Jordan Dykstra

    13th November 2017 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

    This 60 minute recording was produced in July 2016 in Ano Syros, Greece (as
    part of the Syros’ Sound Meetings residency) and is the first realization of a score entitled Inner Sound. This enhanced field recording was recorded during two takes using a Zoom H6 handheld recorder, airhorns, and audience participation. Finally, in editing, sine-tones were added to correspond to the altitude of the journey up and down the path, from the highest point on the island to sea level.

    Jordan Dykstra is a composer and performer born in Sioux City, IA, who was formally educated throughout the United States and informally throughout Europe. Some of his
    interests include psychoacoustics, plants, invention, drinking coffee, noise, and his cat Basil. In 2015 Jordan founded Editions Verde, a small-run music publisher interested in the relationship between physical objects and sound.

  • different time different place different pitch: Preservation is Visibility - Dani Gal & Achim Lengerer

    13th November 2017 @ 10:00 am - 10:45 am

    The women behind the civil rights movement in the U.S. as documented in Irma
    McClaurin’s African American feminist archive, and Ryan Mendoza hijacking Rosa
    Parks' house to Berlin.

    A series of radio programs By Dani Gal and Achim Lengerer. Originally commissioned by Documenta 14.

    The radio is an acousmatic instrument. Listeners do not see the origin of the sound,
    their experience is shaped both by the their own interpretation, and the manipulation
    of the producer in a political system.

    Our programs work on the space between documentary and Musique concrète.
    Each show focuses on political events that are connected to acoustic events. This
    creates an acousmatic documentary where the programs become sound-objects.
    The programs response to the 'image saturated society' discourse, by asking what is
    the function of sound as a document in times of live video feeds that can be broadcast
    by anyone.

    Dani Gal (born 1975, Jerusalem) lives and works in Berlin. He studied at the Bezalel
    Academy for Art and Design in Jerusalem; the Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende
    Künste Städelschule in Frankfurt; and the Cooper Union in New York. His flms and
    works have been shown widely, including: Documenta 14, 54th Venice Biennale
    (2011), The Istanbul Biennale (2011), The New Museum New York (2012),
    Kunsthalle St. Gallen Swizerland (2013), The Jewish museum New York (2014),
    Berlinale Forum Expanded (2014), Kunsthaus Zurich (2015) Kunsthalle Wien (2015)
    And more.

    Achim Lengerer works on political questions of speech and language that he
    thematizes in performances, radio plays or spatializes within installations and
    publications. Lengerer founded different collaborative projects such as freitagsküche
    in Frankfurt a. M. and voiceoverhead, with Dani Gal. Since 2009 Lengerer runs the
    Berlin based showroom and publishing house Scriptings. Different Artists are invited
    – all of which are working with the formats of script and text within their processes of
    production. Lengerer is currently working on his Ph.D. at Goldsmiths, University of
    London, UK, on the format of the rehearsal as an actual format for socio-political
    negotiations.

  • Basement Voices - Alyssa Moxley

    13th November 2017 @ 10:45 am - 11:00 am

    Basement Voices” is a mini-documentary made from a collection of reel to reel recordings made between 1955-1964 by Diogenes Paul Schouwe, the Panamanian consulate to Chicago, a refrigerator technician and Rosicrucian. They had been stored since 1997, when he passed away, in the basement of my apartment building in Logan Square, Chicago.

    Alyssa Moxley accesses narratives of identity, place, space, and embodied experience through sound. She utilizes microphone techniques, field recording, interviews, composition, digital and analog sound design, speaker placement, and sculpture to create detailed sonic interventions and environments that relate to networks of memory and knowledge distribution.

    (1) Told from the perspective of solo Mother Kate E. Deeming, "Anonymous Dancer" explores the hidden choreographies of Motherhood.
    Kate E. Deeming is an Performing Artist, Producer, and Creative Facilitator from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA who has been based in Glasgow for nearly 20 years. Although she has presented many works internationally she is most known for her two year dance she did along the Glasgow’s Broomielaw which earned her the title ‘Glasgow’s Morning Dancer’. As the present parent (a title she prefers to single Mother) she is challenged to find ways to maintain her creative practice and parent effectively, hence this

  • Location Series #1 - Alessandro Bosetti

    13th November 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 12:15 pm

    In this piece I have recorded as many people as possible within a certain period of time. Wherever I went I asked people to say “here” in their own mother language. Each person was asked to say this word only once, and only in cases of perfect bi- or tri-lingualism did I allow them to say it in additional languages. I have edited all of these single-word samples chronologically in the exact order in which they were recorded. All recordings were made between August 12th and October 30th, 2017 in Vicobarone (IT), Milano (IT), Marseille (FR), Porto (PT), Marseille (FR), Taipei (TW), Bologna (IT) and Lyon (FR).

    People, microphones and languages move, at least in relation to each other. Their movement is somehow unpredictable and free as a beautiful dance. Whilst scanning the territory I experienced how linguistic and geographical landscapes intersect in complex ways and how every territory is constantly transversed in multiple directions by so many living beings.

    Each of these recordings of a single word is evidence of an individual being in a specific place at a specific moment in time although we may not know the actual details of who, where and when. People come and go and are found in unexpected places, each one of them with her/his own biography and memory. The microphone has its own schedule, its own agenda, and opens a window towards the future and the not here. Languages moreover, travel with people, sometimes the same person carries two, three or more. Languages are not bound to a specific location or to a specific person as they migrate from place to place and from mouth to mouth.

    In triangulating languages, individuals and the microphone we obtain precise coordinates of pure existence but we may not be able to infer proper locations. Nevertheless all these coordinates draw a path, a road, a corrugated and fascinating itinerary worthy of travelling over and over again with our ears and imagination. Consider this piece a travelogue, or a meditation on voice in relative space and have a nice trip.

    Thanks to Pedro Rocha, Mark Vernon, Camera Chao.

    Alessandro Bosetti is a composer, performer and sound artist whose work delves into the musicality of spoken language, utilizing misunderstandings, translations and interviews as compositional tools. His works for voice and electronics blur the line between electro acoustic composition, aural writing and performance.

  • Meet Me at the Cemetery Gates plus Horses - For Now Collective

    13th November 2017 @ 12:30 pm - 1:00 pm

    Horses - An immersive, cinematic portrait of T.Cribbs & Sons, one of East London’s oldest funeral directors. Specialising in traditional horse-drawn funerals they are the only firm who still have their own stables. This captures the intimate relationships they have with their horses, and the quiet intensity of their work. One of 28 audio portraits designed to be listened to whilst wandering through an overgrown Victorian cemetery park in Mile End in London.

    http://www.letsgetlostapp.com

    Meet me at cemetery gates - Neglected for years, Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park was originally one of London’s Magnificent Seven cemeteries. It stretches for 31 acres and is the city's largest urban woodland. From cemetery to nature reserve, the park mirrors the East End’s long history of providing a refuge and haven for (im)migrants. We meet those who played there long ago, Serbian foragers, bird-watchers and to children who visit the park now, who all create a portrait of this bewitching space.

  • String Scapes - Swampy Cellos live in the studio

    13th November 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
    the studio

    My practice considers the sensory implications of being in a specific place, and the passage of slow and quick time. I recently graduated from GSA Painting and Printmaking, and my degree show was composed of a moving image installation with a daily updated sound piece. I like to elevate background sounds; I use a lot of amplification on my cello, so that gentle plucking, percussion and hairline movements are heard at a musical level. Recent exhibitions and shows include; Still House Plants - 'Assemblages' Launch Party 18/06/17, Open House Festival, Glasgow, 28/04/17, and Topophilia, New Glasgow Society, 26/03/17.

  • The Last Glass - Love Without Sound

    13th November 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

    “They say you should never stop drinking suddenly. But that was exactly what I did…”
    The day after his alcoholic mother’s funeral, David starts his own nightmarish battle with withdrawal. A first-person docudrama based on real-life experience, The Last Glass takes listeners on a vivid hallucinatory journey through grief, psychosis and delirium and out the other side.

    Content note: contains graphic descriptions of violence and self-harm plus one use of strong language.

    Love Without Sound are an audiovisual duo comprising David Badger and Abi Bliss, from Wakefield and Huddersfield. Sonically, they take acoustic instruments and electronic sounds, the technologically advanced and the deliberately naïve, and combine them in organic and unearthly ways. Previous work includes Reasons for Admission, an installation for a padded cell at the Mental Health Museum; Pixophytoflora, an AV performance at Light Night Liverpool; and The Sum of All Knowledge, a film for Wakefield Artwalk.

  • Inside Outside - Camilla Hannan

    13th November 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 5:30 pm

    The Territory Wildlife Park is a 400-hectare expanse of native bush land located south-west of Darwin, Australia. By day the sonic landscape is suppressed by heat. However, at night, the bush swells with insects, birds and mysterious rustlings through the pandanus.

    Field recordist and radio maker Camilla Hannan spent three weeks living on the edges of the park. She spoke with the land’s traditional custodians and park workers to examine how the sounds of our environment reflect our connection to country and each other.

    Commissioned by ABC RN’s Soundproof 2016

    Camilla Hannan is an Australian radio producer, sound artist and field recordist. Her art and radio works have been exhibited, performed, installed and broadcast in Australia and internationally. Underlying all her work is a deep fascination with the way we listen and how this listening impacts upon our micro and macro worlds.

Languages are not bound to a specific location or to a specific person as they migrate from place to place and from mouth to mouth. In triangulating languages, individuals and the microphone we obtain precise coordinates of pure existence but we may not be able to infer proper locations. Nevertheless all these coordinates draw a path, a road, a corrugated and fascinating itinerary worthy of travelling over and over again with our ears and imagination. Consider this piece a travelogue, or a meditation on voice in relative space and have a nice trip.

His works for voice and electronics blur the line between electro acoustic composition, aural writing and performance.

  • Red Rooms in Subterranean Dwellings - Pangaean Permafaction

    13th November 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 7:00 pm

    Red Rooms in Subterranean Dwellings explores myriad nagging uncertainties, as they are revealed to be mundane, yet ripe currency for exchange with ever present fearmongers.
    Or alternatively, a place to burn a light, indulging introspection and surreal dreaming as a wellspring for imagination.

    This piece is a response to H.G. Wells’ “The Red Room ” short story from 1874. Taken
    simply, it’s a brief gothic test of credulity: to cause a shiver, as a fireside read. But typical of Wells, there is another effort there — interpreting and projecting a rapidly shifting social
    climate. Wells delivers Fear as a commodity, packaged and constrained by the four walls of his Red Room; promoted by an indentured peerage of brokers. This Fear is materially real, yet allows for conscientious refusal — by sustained efforts to keep light burning in it's
    shadow.

    The passing century has seen rapid shifts to the present day, where we face a far diminished risk and tangible cause for fear. Conscious endeavour has emphatically explored the unknown, and forcefully pursued uncertainty; ultimately fueling discovery, creativity and progress. Regrettably, those misfortunes which do catastrophically disrupt safety and security are too often tractable to evident, deliberate machinations. Our sense of fear is organic and innate, but our attachment to it, often misdirected.

    The narrative and sound design are developed by methods of process and constraint. This
    facilitates the artists working simultaneously, in physical isolation, to produce convergent
    expression: a structure of narrative voices braided through spatial timbral and rhythmic layers. There is the impression is of a ‘musical’ piece physically mobile in an extensive unfamiliar world. The language and instrumental devices can seem familiar, but there is ambiguity and strangeness, reflecting the individually dissociative influence of the generative compositional processes. Shifting dynamics and textures let the listener infer their own fears to the strangeness, or find empathic resolve in the leading, dreamlike narrative. A rich rhythmic and harmonic palette that references and extends the stylings of contemporary electronic music, exploiting a range of software and hardware tools along with fieldsourced recordings, samples and voice processing. The sound artists responsible frequently work with radical applications of acousmatic and concrete techniques, here moderated, to serve an impression of musical norms, gradually revealing little that concedes to convention.

    Cast in sediments of the last great flood, Pangaean Permafaction stands as a collective of experimental sound artists who may never physically meet.

    Current projects are traversing four points of the globe, between participants in Australia and England:

    *A Patch Of Nettles* — a solo sound project from small town New South Wales, Australia, keeping busy adapting field recordings to acousmatic arrangements, constructing electronic instruments and collaborating with strangers. Nettles is regular contributor to the avant garde Disquiet Junto project and is published on Bandcamp and Soundcloud.

    *Pytchblend* — an English sound artist whose work studies the half-awake moments before the onset of sleep using AMSR and frisson-inducing spectral manipulation into audio dreamlets. Pytchblend is a regular on RTÉ’s Nova in Ireland, Berlin Community Radio and is published on Bandcamp and Soundcloud and youtube.

    *TheNumbersInTheDream* — an English multi-instrumental itinerant sorcerer, wearing a hat of eternal paradox. At times, he is not real. Other times he creates warmly received echoing melodies shrouded by inscrutable ghost voices. Nick can be found on the Fag Ash Records net label, Soundcloud , youtube and spinning sound on Mixcloud where he inexorably winds new genres in song.

    *KeithysDunimselfaMischief* — an Australian sound artist who poses the question, "does the silence create the sound or does the sound create the silence?" He finds that the answer is unreservedly, “yes it does”. He has received regular Australian airplay on RN's Sound Quality , and Bay FM in northern NSW. He enjoys sleeping and is published on Soundcloud.

  • Mind Lice - Dave Madden aka nonnon

    13th November 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 7:30 pm

    I’m enamored with the idea of self(ish)-help and prescriptions for deeper purpose – though, after iterations of these across centuries, we’re still fucked up. We can’t focus. We get a notion and don’t follow through because we’re constantly distracted. Life is easier with distractions. It is a mental frenzy. Add to that the 2016 election in my nation, and I’m personally, uncomfortably numb.

    That’s what I’m doing with this work: showing you the battle between mental frenzy and ASMR, hypnotism, Gematria, meditation, and a bunch of cult-speak I was mired in, though recently shrugged off after 21 years etc.

    Dave Madden’s (aka dj_webern, nonnon, Chomsky at the Bit, Wasabi P) earliest memories are Magical Mystery Tour, “Paint it Black” and the guy who claimed to be the Lizard King. He uses percussion, found objects, laptop, turntables and an obsessive bending of synthesizers into the way they are not supposed to react to perform and / or DJ all over the world, from Montreal to Chico, California, in universities, museums and coffee shops, preferring the types of crowds who enjoy John Cage back to back with Anti-Pop Consortium.

  • Reliances - Sonja Berg

    13th November 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 8:00 pm

    A poetical sound creation 2017
    Voices, sounds, music and cut : Sonja B. Berg
    Contains fragments of poetical texts of contemporary authors in french and italian.

    I like to create universes of poetical and strong images, dance with sound and musique
    explorations, go beyond limits, transmit my passion of the art of playing with reality and
    share the freedom to redefine it. I’m inspired by everything that is alive and study human
    relationships like one would listen to a marvellous story. Reliance speaks about memory
    and time, and the beauty of wandering into different worlds as we do in dreams.

    Sonja B. Berg is an international performance artist born in Berlin, lives and works in Toulouse/France. Has been working and collaborating with festivals, theatres and institutions in France, Danmark, Poland, USA, Italy, Germany and Sweden. She is working on embodied ritual and the poetical action.

  • Radioart106fm #93: Floy Krouchi - Fukushima Radiography

    13th November 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

    This is a selection of seven shows from ‘radioart106fm’ compiled for radiophrenia 2017. It contains the creations of female Radio and Sound artists

    A radiophonic essay by Floy krouchi, Hélène Lucien and Marc Pallain

    How to make visible the invisible radioactivity? Hélène Lucien et Marc Pallain went on the field, in the exclusion zone around Fukushima nuclear plant. They entrusted the sonic composition of this experience to the sound artist Floy Krouchi.

    To reveal the imprint of radioactivity and crystallise a concrete, undeniable proof of the invisible, Héléne Lucien (a plastic artist) and Marc Pallain (a photographer) placed, in 2012, just one year after the catastrophe, and in 2016, some analog blank medical radiographic films in the exclusion zone around Fukushima nuclear plant. They subjected them to ionising radiation during variable periods ( 3 to 37 days) and different levels of radiation (between 3.8 microSievert/h and 40 microSievert/h). The result is a series of images called "Chronoradiograms", real internal landscapes ( inner visions) resting on photography as a revelator of the index of radioactivity.

    In “Fukushima Radiography”, the sound creation was composed by Floy Krouchi from the sounds collected by Hélène Lucien and Marc Pallain in Fukushima with, as a central element, stretched, unrecognizable and essential: the dosimeter. She also questions the two artists about their work in the Fukushima exclusion zone, and their physical sensations while being exposed to high rates of radiation. It implies the question of subjectivity, of the risk ,of the commitment and the involvement of the body in the contaminated zone.

    Simultaneously, the poetic and visionary writing of the poet Jotaro Wakamatsu recreates images through a series of premonitory poems recited in French and Japanese by
    Gyohel Zaitsu. These poems deal with the ineluctable coming catastrophe on the Fukushima zone, echoing that of Tchernobyl which had deeply impressed the poet following his stay in1987.

    With excerpts from « Hitono Akashi » : Jotaro Wakamatsu translated from english by Jacques and Jacqueline Krouchi
    With: Gyohei Zaitsu, Jotaro Wakamatsu, Michael Ferrier, Madame Takahashi.
    Additional text Hélène Lucien and Marc Pallain
    Original composition Floy Krouchi

    Produced and presented by Meira Asher, The program’s host station KolHaCampus106fm closed down on August 31, 2017. Between the summers of 2014 and 2017, Meira aired 107 programs and several specials, part of which were Radia.fm member stations productions.

    In the aftermath of this agonising farewell, ‘radioart106fm’ is reforming and will reappear soon, starting with a monthly show on Radio Campus Bruxelles in 2018.

  • Echo Chamber - Ross Whyte

    13th November 2017 @ 9:00 pm - 12:00 am

    An experimental durational piece which utilises field recordings made in Sri Lanka between February and April 2017 and in Glasgow between August and October 2017. These recordings are combined, compared and contrasted to explore musical commonalities in aspects of urban and natural soundscapes as well as spoken word and song.
    My aim is to create an abstract illustration of echoes which I have identified between two very vibrant soundscapes, which I have found myself immersed in this year.

    Ross Whyte is a composer and sound artist. In 2012 he completed a practice-based PhD in Musical Composition where his field of research was impermanence in audio-visual intermedia and headphone-specific composition. His compositional output in recent years has often included collaborations with artists of disciplines different from my own, including dance, theatre, sculpture and web design. Since early 2016 he has worked as one half of the Gaelic ambient electronica duo, WHɎTE with singer-songwriter Alasdair Whyte. Their acclaimed debut album, Fairich, was released in 2016 and has received positive reviews and regular national and international radio airplay.

  • different time different place different pitch: 3700 Hours of Recorded Tape - Dani Gal & Achim Lengerer

    14th November 2017 @ 1:00 am - 2:00 am

    The Nixon tapes reenacted live in the studio by Jeff Burrell.

    A series of radio programs By Dani Gal and Achim Lengerer. Originally commissioned by Documenta 14.

    The radio is an acousmatic instrument. Listeners do not see the origin of the sound,
    their experience is shaped both by the their own interpretation, and the manipulation
    of the producer in a political system.

    Our programs work on the space between documentary and Musique concrète.
    Each show focuses on political events that are connected to acoustic events. This
    creates an acousmatic documentary where the programs become sound-objects.
    The programs response to the 'image saturated society' discourse, by asking what is
    the function of sound as a document in times of live video feeds that can be broadcast
    by anyone.

    Dani Gal (born 1975, Jerusalem) lives and works in Berlin. He studied at the Bezalel
    Academy for Art and Design in Jerusalem; the Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende
    Künste Städelschule in Frankfurt; and the Cooper Union in New York. His flms and
    works have been shown widely, including: Documenta 14, 54th Venice Biennale
    (2011), The Istanbul Biennale (2011), The New Museum New York (2012),
    Kunsthalle St. Gallen Swizerland (2013), The Jewish museum New York (2014),
    Berlinale Forum Expanded (2014), Kunsthaus Zurich (2015) Kunsthalle Wien (2015)
    And more.

    Achim Lengerer works on political questions of speech and language that he
    thematizes in performances, radio plays or spatializes within installations and
    publications. Lengerer founded different collaborative projects such as freitagsküche
    in Frankfurt a. M. and voiceoverhead, with Dani Gal. Since 2009 Lengerer runs the
    Berlin based showroom and publishing house Scriptings. Different Artists are invited
    – all of which are working with the formats of script and text within their processes of
    production. Lengerer is currently working on his Ph.D. at Goldsmiths, University of
    London, UK, on the format of the rehearsal as an actual format for socio-political
    negotiations.

  • Commence Exuding The Opaque Vapour - Barry Burns

    14th November 2017 @ 2:00 am - 7:00 am

    For the last five years I have taken a sample from every video I watch on my laptop. As a tip of the hat to William Burroughs and Robert Anton Wilson I take the sample from the 23rd minute. Each sample is arranged and layered chronologically, constructing an aleatory narrative, a random DJ mix of dialogue, music and foley, a self portrait of viewing habits and memory. VHS rips merge with Blu Ray restorations, youtube binges mingle with abandoned box sets.

    Barry Burns is not the bloke out of Mogwai, its a different, unsuccessful one. He is the co-manager of Radiophrenia and has used his immense power to give himself the highly coveted 5am slot.

    1. Optic Nerve – Mirror

    This song explores how a sense of self can fragment over time, as the relationship of who you are and your physical body wane. It intensifies this sense of dislocation using the subliminal sounds of radios retuning and detuning as a percussive base.

    Optic Nerve are a musical and visual arts group based in Edinburgh and London consisting of Cosima Cobley Carr and Grant Campbell. They have released four individual multimedia works and are currently also in the process of finishing a larger project, which they aim to present live in an immersive multimedia performance. Recently they also performed as sound carriers for Japanese musician Damo Suzuki.

    2. Vincent Eoppolo - Hello

    I view my works as a synthesis of various sound art traditions including musique concrete, acousmatic music and radio art. In my work I strive to present brief moments of the world we are living in. Society in the continuing process of realizing itself. Our relationship with each other, with technology, our morality, spirituality, sexuality, our anxieties and fears. In many ways my works are like sociological and psychological commentaries. My work has been featured on Bernard Clarke's program Nova on RTE's Lyric FM, Phaune Radio from Montpellier, France as well as Radio Art International on CHOQ Radio in Montreal. My works were recently presented at the 2017 New York City Electro-Acoustic Music Festival.

    3. Luke Pell – Lucy Cash Out of Touch

    Some Words to Wander With are a series of recordings as part of In the Ink Dark, a dance and a poem made from from memory and conversation. A project from Luke Pell and collaborators. Created as part of the project invited voices - artists who make dances, whose works are both poetic and choreographic - offer a collection of musings that speak to words and to dances, bodies and buildings, science and nature, to thought and to feeling, to memory, materiality, landscape and loss. They are wisdoms for living, some words to wander with where you live, at work, at rest, at home, away.

    Fascinated by detail, nuances of time, texture, memory and landscape Luke Pell is a maker and curator who collaborates with other artists and organisations imagining alternative contexts for performance, participation and discourse that might reveal wisdoms for living. Noticing threads that weave between people and place his artistic projects take form as intimate encounters, poetic objects, installations and environments - choreographies - for physical and virtual spaces.

    5. Maria Papadomanolaki – Messtrument improvisation

    Consisting of a close-circuited array of transmitters, receivers, microphones and other electronics, the messtrument is a feedback-driven platform (rather than instrument) for performing alone or in the context of ensembles. Based on the idea of improvising with the sounds and acoustics of a particular site, the messtrument is more than a noise generator as it uses the ether as it 'mixing console'

    This is a recording of a recent messtrument improvisation/demonstration for the students of the Digital Music and Sound Arts course at the University of Brighton.

    6. Vincent Eoppolo - Septa Subway Night

    7. Marjorie van Halteren and Jeff Gburek - Strange Ambitions

    He's in Poland, she's in Northern France. Two Americans abroad, mapping the mysterious triangular territory of sound recording, instrument creation and poetry across the continent.
Working with voice, guitar, percussion, samples, invented instruments and words, their work features sounds of this world, of other worlds, philosophic crosstalk, voice-as- texture, bird tongues, field recording requiems, ancient drumming, voices on the edge of sleep...exploring sound/music/text in equal balance....

    8. S van der Linden - Monolog GIRL

    Omigosh! I'm away with the fairies! I ruminate, let my dreams marinate, stare into space or to this low energy abstraction who's always pushing his hair back during dinner. He is sooooo FUNNY! This totally whimsical and lovely someone gazes at me with this dreamy look in his eyes that smoothes all over and soothes deep aches and pains on its pathway into the body, easing tension at a deep level, helping relieve fatigue and greatly reviving low sympathetic levels. I concentrate on the reduced appearance of this warm abstraction from immediate reality. Sissy and soft. Establishing a sense of calm that settles upon everyone present.

  • Patrick Heron Bedroom - Posset

    14th November 2017 @ 9:30 am - 10:00 am

    In 1999 me and my partner decorated a bedroom for our baby son in a Patrick Heron style. 18 years later I was asked to play a show in reaction to Heron’s ‘Red Table’ painting. I joined these two experiences together recording my partner talking about the how and why we painted the room and writing text sound pieces (based on Heron’s paintings) for me and my daughter to recite.

    I also recorded two 20 minute domestic field recordings, one for each speaker, and mixed the spoken word and text performances onto this canvas.

    My son declined to take part.

    Sound mixing and text pieces: Joe Posset

    I’ve been working with Dictaphones and old tape recorders making slurred sounds for the last 10 years. Using a mixture of careful composition and reckless improvisation I’ve managed to put out over 30 tapes and CDrs and play solo and in wonderful collaborations up and down the UK. I’m a lucky man. More recently I’ve started using abstract vocal sounds and words to create Dada-esque poems.

  • Ligature - Joan Schuman

    14th November 2017 @ 10:45 am - 11:00 am

    This is an imagined conversation loosely based on the lives of Daisy and Violet Hilton, conjoined twins born in the UK in 1911. The Hiltons were displayed in circuses in Europe and toured the U.S. sideshow, vaudeville and burlesque circuits in the 1920s and 1930s. They’re retired now. They whisper themselves to sleep while conjuring what death will feel like when it comes to them both. There’s a ghosted imprint of mourning of those attached to us, whether by our own sinew or the withered wings of dead seabirds. Their single knotted torso extends beyond immediate and singular relationships.

    My audiophilia whispers into the radio's ear with documentaries and poetic narratives airing globally via artist-curated programming. Listening along the central California coast, I teach production artistry online at The New School for Public Engagement and curate Earlid, a virtual space for adventurous sound artistry, radiophonics and curious listeners where I recently co-moderated the online forum, "Radio's Art."

  • The Buffer Zone - with Niels Lyhne Løkkegaard

    14th November 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

    Symphony No. 1 is a written symphony that is only hearable for the inner ear, thereby each listening experience will be different from each other, and every listening experience will be totally valid.

    How to perform the piece: Symphony No. 1 should be read up loud in the radio by a narrator. The narrator would decide how the speed of words should be.

    About "Symphony No. 1 - Music for the inner ear":

    Is it possible to create imaginary music only hearable for the inner ear of the listener? A kind of music in which the listener also becomes the composer? A utopic kind of music in which anything therefore is possible? Can written stories about sound manifest themselves as imaginary pieces of music inside the listeners mind brought to life using the inner ear?
    Can the story about a piece of art, become the piece of art? These questions are the subject of composer Niels Lyhne Løkkegaards work.

    Niels Lyhne Løkkegaard is interested in how to democratize the act of creating, and is looking into the utopic space of imaginary music as a method of composing and as a catalyst for creating. On a philosophical level Niels Lyhne Løkkegaard is interested in how stories about music can be accepted as being music detached from any psychical manifestation, and how narratives are capable of constituting reality. How can this narrative metasphere be a space for artistic action in what could be described as curatorial times?

    Niels Lyhne Løkkegaard is a sound artist and composer who studied at Denmark’s Rhythmic Music Conservatory and the School of Architecture of the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. He has created a wide range of works and sound releases that operate at the intersection of experimental music and sound art, a.o. the soundtrack for MoMA’s René Magritte exhibition The Mystery of the Ordinary in 2013. Niels Lyhne Løkkegaard considers his compositional work to be a basic research in sound. He is interested in exploring the sensuousness of sound, and he wants his music to stimulate new ways of approaching sound. Over the recent years Niels Lyhne Løkkegaard has experimented with creating music that lets the instruments transcend their inherent sonic norms and reappear as new, untouched sound. In the work series SOUND X SOUND he explores this by way of multiplication. He has written and recorded the seven pieces of SOUND X SOUND from 2013 to 2016 – a series of works multiplying one instrument a number of times: One piece is written for 9 pianos, another for 10 hi-hats and so on. Løkkegaards interest in facilitating a more "democratic" approach to creating music, has also lead him into creating imaginary pieces of "music for the inner ear" and creating the curatorial non-event Curatorium.

  • The Ongoing Drain of the Fight Between the Wild and Tame Pt.1 - Doog Cameron

    14th November 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm

    This work comprises field and forgotten recordings, small town/city centre conversations and sounds with audio effects, synths and acoustics. It tries to promote then reign back the constant battle experienced, to lesser or greater degrees, of the wild and tame sides of personality and behaviour. We experience brooding on madness with inner thoughts in and out of context of everyday living, or getting in a state where our outer actions and words lead us away from our ‘actual’ personalities, towards the Steppenwolfesque. Contrastingly we can be content in situations where we should be stressed, angry, sad or irritable - sound and music, whether audible to everyone or playing in our minds often play a part in this.

    Worth listening out for are roaring polar bears, wind up chickens, rusty curtain hooks, clicking reindeer heel cartilage, geese, starlings on a Summers night, diaries, bin store gadgies, drunks, art exhibitions, junior football, domestication as an unattainable myth, sobriety, child's play, shop ambience and last chance yelps.

    No longer acceptable as entertainment student party and cheap deal booze nights got sacked for hard clubbing and sonic experimentation - only the good stuff from then on was pursued. The dawn of multitrack recording ensued with late night sessions of improvised intoxicated songs with Ryan Lambie as Johns Indie Disco. The JID years were a productive period, tracks of techno punk quality and some flashes of pure genius, but only 3 live gigs, meant the main means of promotion was handing out home burnt CDs in the street. The Ladywell Lout era then ensued, involving the circle of contributors from JID with semi-documentary based audio on gala days, gadgies, losers and high rises.

  • Method - Anna Zett

    14th November 2017 @ 12:30 pm - 1:00 pm

    In this spontaneous audio piece Anna Zett explores the interview as a form of monologue and a form of trialogue. It is centered around the artist's visit at a professional fortune tellers office in Beijing.She has brought her own deck of modernist tarot cards, he is willing to share his approach to situation analysis and fate calculation according to Chinese traditions. Mediated by a third person who is serving as translator, they enter a conversation about chance.

    Anna Zett has written and directed two radio plays for the public radio in Germany, both of them dealing with voice-based oracles and the challenge of communication.

  • The Sound of Sirens - Sam Rowell

    14th November 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

    The Sounds of Sirens examines the audio landscape of civil defense, featuring the sounds of mechanical emergency sirens from around the world.

    Sam Rowell is an artist, musician, and sonic explorer. Having first begun broadcasting at WHRB's Record Hospital in 1993, she now operates out of artist-run radio station KCHUNG in Los Angeles. Her show, Special Collections, is a monthly broadcast of live-mixed sound collage. Drawing source material from audio archives, historical records, sound and radio phenomena, field recordings, and the sonification of data, each edition of Special Collections creates an audio portrait of the topic at hand. Subjects examined include HAARP, echolocation, sound activated electromechanics, continuous wave reduced power broadcasting, pluviophonics, and the Peoples Temple audio cassette archive.

  • YOU ARE BUT YOU ARE NOT - Beatrice Catanzaro

    14th November 2017 @ 2:45 pm - 3:00 pm

    The audio guide YOU ARE BUT YOU ARE NOT is the result of participative research and work practices with the civil society, activists, researchers, NGOs and refugees from the area around Bolzano (Italy). The audio-guide follows a given route in the public space of the city of Bolzano, that moves along the “margins” of the city. The listener is guided by a narrating voice, which interlaces facts with metaphors, reflecting on the shifting of boundaries and the conditions of hosting and becoming refugee in Europe. The work aims to offer a reflective journey into "our" procedures of hospitality in Europe.

    YOU ARE BUT YOU ARE NOT is a project by the geographer Kolar Aparna and the artist Beatrice Catanzaro and is curated and produced by Lungomare (http://www.lungomare.org) in the context of their long-term residency 2016-2017. The script of the audio-guide is written by Elena Pugliese.

  • Hearspace - Karen Power

    14th November 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 5:30 pm

    A new composition for radio based on the idea of exploring the sounds of a particular time, place and memory. hearspace will explore, isolate and use specific RTÉ sound archives as a means of grounding listeners to a particular time, place and memory. These voices or sounds of Ireland, which will be combined with Karen’s own sounds recorded throughout the world; from The Arctic to Laos, will bring listeners on real and imagined sonic journeys from their past and into their future. This work will also feature archival materials from other European Radio stations who have been invited to submit their sonic snapshots.

    Radio exists without visual cues, allowing listeners to form their own unique relationships with sounds from the privacy of their kitchen, bedroom, cow shed or shower! When radio is being received in a space it simply enters and shares space with everything else around it. (Unlike a piece of concert music, which expects silence and your full attention.) The result is that radio sounds move frequently and freely between the background and foreground of a space.

  • Mind Lice - Dave Madden aka nonnon

    14th November 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 7:30 pm

    I’m enamored with the idea of self(ish)-help and prescriptions for deeper purpose – though, after iterations of these across centuries, we’re still fucked up. We can’t focus. We get a notion and don’t follow through because we’re constantly distracted. Life is easier with distractions. It is a mental frenzy. Add to that the 2016 election in my nation, and I’m personally, uncomfortably numb.

    That’s what I’m doing with this work: showing you the battle between mental frenzy and ASMR, hypnotism, Gematria, meditation, and a bunch of cult-speak I was mired in, though recently shrugged off after 21 years etc.

    Dave Madden’s (aka dj_webern, nonnon, Chomsky at the Bit, Wasabi P) earliest memories are Magical Mystery Tour, “Paint it Black” and the guy who claimed to be the Lizard King. He uses percussion, found objects, laptop, turntables and an obsessive bending of synthesizers into the way they are not supposed to react to perform and / or DJ all over the world, from Montreal to Chico, California, in universities, museums and coffee shops, preferring the types of crowds who enjoy John Cage back to back with Anti-Pop Consortium.

  • Yeti - David Liver & Jonathan Frigeri

    14th November 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 8:00 pm

    On July 7, 2017, myself accompanied by Doctor Kawai, we would walk, through our voices, this part of the world where the scientific legend believe the cosmic yeti is hided. It is a vast country where the adventurers dare to dodge and disappear since its discovery. They do not however can die since their bodies does not have access to this world made of waves and vibrations. Not that the skin, like the body and any other physical form, does not belong to it, but here it is better to travel light and limit the sources of sensation. The voice, the voice yes, being the congenial tool to this crossing, due the fact she can not lose her life. And to say that to lose himself there remains the unique danger and to lose himself for good.

    Whit text by David Liver, Gregory Whitehead, Pier Luigi Ighina, Tesla
    Language: Italian, French

    David Liver and Jonathan Frigeri are a poet and a sound artist which meet in some obscure bar in brussels, since there they moved together in the meanders of mind and waves.

    2. Danger Debbs - World of dreams - Dead mutants
    3. Amina Abbas Nazari - A Voice for Radio
    4. devilsclub - electrochemical_love_affair
    5. Jamie Wilson - Sound Walk
    6. Blake Degraw – Diler (from Electronic Duodecet for Humans)

    1. Abraham Chavelas - Babel AM-FM

    For sound, migration policies are nothing. The propagation of electromagnetic waves freely radiates around the planet (and beyond). This piece for Transmedia Borders Project is inspired in the mythology of the Tower of Babel, the origin of tongues and the dispersion of man throughout the earth.

    The radio is not only a means of information or entertainment; it allows men and women to recognize themselves in music and voices. The radio joins them in the process of adaptation in a new city or country, work, in waiting, on the road.

    Broadcaster/Sound Artist/Event Producer. He has been coordinator and producer of artistic and cultural events since 1999: Music festivals, exhibitions, performances, etc.
    His pieces of sound art have been activated live and exhibited in places like Bargehouse / Oxo Tower in London, The Mexican Cultural Institute of New York, Chilango-Andaluz International Recital in Spain, Casa del Lago, Laboratorio Arte Alameda, University Museum of Contemporary Art (MUAC) Mexico City, among others.
    He is the founder of the initiative called Más Música Menos Balas, that proposes to promote art and culture as influencers of social transformation.

    2. Danger Debbs - World of dreams; Dead mutants

    3. Amina Abbas Nazari and Jacob McGuinn - A Voice for Radio

    An ongoing collaboration between Amina Abbas-Nazari and Jacob McGuinn. By understanding voice as ‘material’, shaped and sculpted, both by the body and by technology: we are exploring how do we measure a ‘voice’ as a ‘sound’, or the point at which a ‘sound’ is recognisably a ‘voice’? We utilize radio as a medium to tell stories and share ideas sonically, aiming to contend with the ocularcentric forms we primarily use to interpret the world around us.

    Amina Abbas-Nazari is a Research Fellow at the Royal College of Art and RCA MA Design Interactions graduate. She utilises voice as a medium and investigates where speech meets sound to blur these boundaries and exploit vocal potential to tell stories of alternate realities.

    http://www.aminanazari.com

    Jacob McGuinn wrote his PhD thesis at Queen Mary on aesthetics and poetry, focusing on the reappraisal of Kant in late-twentieth century politics, literary theory and philosophy. He’s currently working on the links between poetic, political, and philosophical accounts of 'voice' in poetry. He teaches at the University of London.

    4. devilsclub - electrochemical love affair

    An improvised, arrhythmic, electronic piece made with equipment that harnesses chaos for the purpose of modulation. This piece is a selection from a series of works entitled "crackling pots and liberty bells" This piece was live patched with no overdubs straight to 2 track. "electrochemical love affair" attempts to make an audio depiction of a battle between unpredictable, intentional events that make tiny depressions in our realities. A dance between the chemicals in the mind / body, electricity blasting through the flesh and the physics that we swim in for a living for a short while.

    "devilsclub" is my vehicle for transmitting expressions of deeply felt emotions that defy words, and or the intensely absurd. Usually these transmissions are made live to 2 track with no overdubs. I am yet another humble participant in the renaissance of free speech and content that the Internet has made possible. As we rapidly approach the "end of employment" due to the maturing of the "Universal Machine" I have chosen to celebrate this odd time with a few odd sounds. The odder, the better.

    5. Jamie Wilson - Sound Walk

    I was lucky enough to be invited on a week long field recording workshop run by Jana Winderen and Mike Harding. We were taken up north to Kyle of Lochalsh for a few days to do some recording and, at the end, to produce a two hour long radio show featuring our own field recording pieces. I sat alone drinking whisky in the comfort of the lodge. It was 3am, the day before we were due to leave. I grabbed the portable recorder and wandered out into the darkness...

    6. Blake Degraw – Diler (from Electronic Duodecet for Humans)

    Electronic Duodecet for Humans is a four-movement recording experiment conceptualized, executed, and recorded by Blake DeGraw. It explores reaction as a generative device. Each movement contains twelve overdubbed layers of the performer listening and reacting to aural stimuli that only he can hear (through headphones). The nature of the performer’s interactions with these stimuli changes with each four movements, ranging from harmonization to gestural imitation to direct mimicry.

    Blake DeGraw is a composer, performer, bandleader, and sound-installation artist currently residing in Seattle, WA. He studied euphonium performance at the Las Vegas Academy of Performing Arts, and currently studies modern composition at Cornish College of the Arts. He is the director and conductor of FHTAGN, an experimental chamber ensemble that focuses on extremes in spatial dispersion, as well as indeterminacy operations, free improvisation, and alternative forms of conduction within those extremes. DeGraw is also the co-founder of Plancklength, a sound-art collective that explores interactive sound production through installation work and instrument creation.

  • One-and-the-Same - Ben Skea

    14th November 2017 @ 10:00 pm - 10:30 pm

    ‘one-and-the-same’ by Ben Skea is an experimental sound and voice response to the notion of extended cognition - an atmospheric transmission that places the listener within a fictitious post-human setting where there are no boundaries between the organism and the artefact. Inspired by the behavioural and evolutionary science paper ‘Extended spider cognition’ (Japyassú & Laland 2017), spoken word and environmental recordings have been significantly re-shaped by means of editing then expanded further with improvised music segues performed using digital synths. This eerie solo piece attempts to question the very nature of cognition and at the same time explores the uncanny properties of technology itself.

    Edit / Foley / Poem / Synth: Ben Skea
    Voice: David Mccallion & Zoë Christina
    Thanks to: Colin Maclean & Graeme Smyth

    Ben Skea is an artist living and working in Glasgow. His moving image, sound and sculpture often reflects on contemporary anxieties of the body in flux, the fragmented self and the fluidity of realities. Recent projects have focused on the intersection between the human condition and the digital.

  • Foundsoundscape - Janek Schaefer

    15th November 2017 @ 2:00 am - 7:00 am

    It's been 20 years exactly since I created 'Recorded Delivery', which quietly collected sounds of the inner realm of the Post Office in March 1995. Back then I could only use cassettes to capture sound, and there was no internet or digital in my world. Two decades later the technical options are staggering, but simplicity and calm is more in demand than ever before.

    Foundsoundscape was inspired by the very first Digital Radio station in the UK, that simply played a recording of a rural location. Radio you could just leave running to add a peaceful ambience to your environment indoors. It heralded a new media paradigm, as digital broadcasting offered more capacity than requred for the first time, and that space needed filling. At the same time on TV, Channel 4 was broadcasting Big Brother live 24hours, and at night I loved to tune-in my analogue TV sets all over the house, and the shed, so I could hear the housemates gently sleeping as I worked through the night. Since then infomercials, and gambling TV have taken over, and I greatly miss that sense of real-time space, that does not demand your attention. Foundsoundscape quietly underscores your environment, by creating new ones from others.

    Radio is special as it was the first medium that could be experienced by many people in many places, all at the same time. Foundsoundscape.com is an online radio station that streams live 24hours a day, which can now be broadcast to people all over the globe. Using over 1000 calm & curious location recordings captured by 100+ recordists, the sounds were simply edited, and then played back three at a time at various volumes in shuffle mode, and the result is never the same twice. You often hear the edges of time as files begin or stop playing mid flow. If you listen ever so carefully you can also hear me working in the studio at the end of the garden late at night, as I have a live mic feeding into the mix. I sometimes like to work with tv radio & music playing, to absorb information, give me ideas, create and share. Email me for a shout-out!

    My hope is that others will find foundsoundscape enjoyable and leave it running all day & all night long, just like a radio! It's as simple as that, with one click. A salute to serendipity and shared sonic space. Bookmark it. Play it in rooms around the house. Share it . . Take a break . . .
    Every day is different.
    Happy Daze.

    3.Chin Ting Chan - Whispers of Time
    Whispers of Time is a 14-minute sonic exploration on the elapse of time, the stretch of time, and the reverse of time. Various sound samples have been manipulated and processed in ways that significantly affect the time domain of the samples, using mostly custom patches made with Cycling 74’s Max 6 program.

    Hong Kong composer Chin Ting (Patrick) CHAN has been a fellow and guest composer at festivals such as the International Computer Music Conference, IRCAM’s ManiFeste and the Wellesley Composers Conference, with performances in more than twenty countries.

    4. Diana Chester – Composition as explanation

    Composition as Exploration, is a compositional exploration of the concept of form shifting, whereby I take a core text, and attempt to analyze and assess the core formal qualities of it, and then create a composition that attempts to follow the core form of the source material. This piece is based on Getrude Stein's Essay, "Composition as Explanation." The piece was performed live on a modular synthesizer rack, while listening back to a pre-recorded reading I made of Stein's Essay. The recorded reading captured the rhythm, cadence, and syncopation qualities of the piece that I was attempting to form shift.

    Dr. Diana Chester is a digital media artist, musician, and scholar. Her work draws from sound studies, archival studies, and the ethnographic study of expressive culture in religious festival and tradition in India and the Middle East. In her teaching she is preoccupied with the fusion of practice and theory, and is part of a collaborative team that explores the pedagogical and artistic implications of a process that integrates the visual arts, music, writing, and performance as a way of interpreting core texts and materials.

    5. Blake Degraw - Mutual Intelligibility

    Electronic Duodecet for Humans is a four-movement recording experiment conceptualized, executed, and recorded by Blake DeGraw. It explores reaction as a generative device. Each movement contains twelve overdubbed layers of the performer listening and reacting to aural stimuli that only he can hear (through headphones). The nature of the performer’s interactions with these stimuli changes with each four movements, ranging from harmonization to gestural imitation to direct mimicry.

    Blake DeGraw is a composer, performer, bandleader, and sound-installation artist currently residing in Seattle, WA. He studied euphonium performance at the Las Vegas Academy of Performing Arts, and currently studies modern composition at Cornish College of the Arts. He is the director and conductor of FHTAGN, an experimental chamber ensemble that focuses on extremes in spatial dispersion, as well as indeterminacy operations, free improvisation, and alternative forms of conduction within those extremes. DeGraw is also the co-founder of Plancklength, a sound-art collective that explores interactive sound production through installation work and instrument creation.

    6. FAILSAFE! – Saguaro

    Saguaro by FAILSAFE! is a contemplation of resonance, space, and rhythm conducted through Eurorack modular synthesizer. The starkly-shaped saguaro cactus, symbol of the American West and backdrop to many Chuck Jones cartoons, served a conceptual starting point, but the end result was determined largely by the interplay of chaos and control within the modular system and its capability to create and shape sounds and spaces.

    FAILSAFE! is the experimental electronic sound output of Drew Girard, based in Long Beach, California. FAILSAFE! is particularly concerned with heavy sounds, systems of uncertainty, and endlessly processing the mundane in search of the transcendent.

    7. Jolyon Houghton - The Lady in Her Dimensions

    The Lady In Her Dimensions is a series of writings describing a woman – a relationship, a past love – but explored through theories on the construct of the universe. It allows the unknown to become potential. The real to become magical. It presents a different angle in which to interpret the feelings of loss, guilt, want and regret, and how all things are intimately connected.

    The piece comes from a collaborative project made with my brother, involving the creation of twelve experimental pieces of writing – stories, plays, poems, scribblings – each developed from the starting point of a photograph.

    Jolyon Houghton is a 28 year old actor and writer from West London, who studied Collaborative & Devised Theatre at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. His writing is a mixture of humour and misfortune, in the form of plays, poems and short stories.

    Written by Jolyon Houghton

  • different time different place different pitch: Frequency Anomaly - Dani Gal & Achim Lengerer

    15th November 2017 @ 10:00 am - 10:45 am

    An audio tape led to new discoveries in the Robert Kennedy assassination With
    Shane O' Sullivan and Philip Van Praag.

    A series of radio programs By Dani Gal and Achim Lengerer. Originally commissioned by Documenta 14.

    The radio is an acousmatic instrument. Listeners do not see the origin of the sound,
    their experience is shaped both by the their own interpretation, and the manipulation
    of the producer in a political system.

    Our programs work on the space between documentary and Musique concrète.
    Each show focuses on political events that are connected to acoustic events. This
    creates an acousmatic documentary where the programs become sound-objects.
    The programs response to the 'image saturated society' discourse, by asking what is
    the function of sound as a document in times of live video feeds that can be broadcast
    by anyone.

    Dani Gal (born 1975, Jerusalem) lives and works in Berlin. He studied at the Bezalel
    Academy for Art and Design in Jerusalem; the Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende
    Künste Städelschule in Frankfurt; and the Cooper Union in New York. His flms and
    works have been shown widely, including: Documenta 14, 54th Venice Biennale
    (2011), The Istanbul Biennale (2011), The New Museum New York (2012),
    Kunsthalle St. Gallen Swizerland (2013), The Jewish museum New York (2014),
    Berlinale Forum Expanded (2014), Kunsthaus Zurich (2015) Kunsthalle Wien (2015)
    And more.

    Achim Lengerer works on political questions of speech and language that he
    thematizes in performances, radio plays or spatializes within installations and
    publications. Lengerer founded different collaborative projects such as freitagsküche
    in Frankfurt a. M. and voiceoverhead, with Dani Gal. Since 2009 Lengerer runs the
    Berlin based showroom and publishing house Scriptings. Different Artists are invited
    – all of which are working with the formats of script and text within their processes of
    production. Lengerer is currently working on his Ph.D. at Goldsmiths, University of
    London, UK, on the format of the rehearsal as an actual format for socio-political
    negotiations.

  • eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee - Catalina Barroso-Luque and Victoria Chen Wei

    15th November 2017 @ 10:45 am - 11:00 am

    eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee is a narrative voice piece, focusing on how the body, the mind, and technology become entangled within inter/intra-personal relationships. The piece is inspired by interviews with my brother regarding his use of GECI viruses to map neural networks, the parallels of working within a hermetic studio and laboratory, and the possibility of slipping into the voices in one’s head. The narration leads the audience through nine hallucinatory episodes within which the narrator slips in and out of
    consciousness, loosing the ability to distinguish inside from outside, body from space, and itself from the ‘you’ it is addressing, Through playing with the desire to become-with an other, the machine and space, the work addresses notions of personal agency.

    Writing, direction and editing: Catalina Barroso-Luque (b. 1988, Mexico City) Catalina Barroso-Luque received her MFA from the Glasgow School of Art in 2016 and her BA (Hons) in Fine Art from Central St. Martins College of Art & Design in 2012. Her work has
    been included in various exhibitions and projects across the United States, Mexico, and the UK. Recent projects include A Loving Aneurysm Glasgow Woman’s Library (2017), eeeeeeeeeeeeeeee The Pipe Factory, Glasgow (2017), Fictional Matters CCA, Glasgow (2016) and Between 9pm and Home Chalton Gallery, London (2015). Catalina is the current the Glasgow Sculpture Studio’s Graduate Fellow and a Committee Member at Market Gallery.

    Voice-over: Victoria Chen Wei. Victoria is a pioneer graduate of Singapore's School of the Arts and recently graduated with the Principal's Award for All-Round Excellence from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. She has trained and performed internationally, including Australia, China, France, Iceland, Singapore, UK and USA, and draws inspiration from
    both Eastern and Western forms. She is currently an Associate Artist with Bhumi Collective and won the ESAF Best Performing Artist award in 2017 for her solo piece Charlie. Victoria is committed towards increasing positive representation and visibility for BAMEs. She aims to create and direct multidisciplinary work that challenges stereotypes and shares unheard narratives.

    John Garcia Rueda - Remezcla Abracadabra (05:25)

    This work corresponds to a remix of a theatre piece written and performed by imprisoned actors in Bogotá, Colombia. The script is written by Adrian Cardona. Performers are: Alex, Juan, Malpica, Miller, Omar, Trenzas, Felix and Chacón. In this work, I try to explore their contagious dark comedy acts by means of acousmatic sound.
    Website: https://www.facebook.com/visitela40
    John García Rueda is a Colombian composer and improviser. He conceives sound and music as a medium to relate to different frameworks and thinks of the fact of getting in touch with cultural symbols as a way of deconstructing the experience of the self.

  • The Ongoing Drain of the Fight Between the Wild and Tame Pt.2 - Doog Cameron

    15th November 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm

    This work comprises field and forgotten recordings, small town/city centre conversations and sounds with audio effects, synths and acoustics. It tries to promote then reign back the constant battle experienced, to lesser or greater degrees, of the wild and tame sides of personality and behaviour. We experience brooding on madness with inner thoughts in and out of context of everyday living, or getting in a state where our outer actions and words lead us away from our ‘actual’ personalities, towards the Steppenwolfesque. Contrastingly we can be content in situations where we should be stressed, angry, sad or irritable - sound and music, whether audible to everyone or playing in our minds often play a part in this.

    Worth listening out for are roaring polar bears, wind up chickens, rusty curtain hooks, clicking reindeer heel cartilage, geese, starlings on a Summers night, diaries, bin store gadgies, drunks, art exhibitions, junior football, domestication as an unattainable myth, sobriety, child's play, shop ambience and last chance yelps.

    No longer acceptable as entertainment student party and cheap deal booze nights got sacked for hard clubbing and sonic experimentation - only the good stuff from then on was pursued. The dawn of multitrack recording ensued with late night sessions of improvised intoxicated songs with Ryan Lambie as Johns Indie Disco. The JID years were a productive period, tracks of techno punk quality and some flashes of pure genius, but only 3 live gigs, meant the main means of promotion was handing out home burnt CDs in the street. The Ladywell Lout era then ensued, involving the circle of contributors from JID with semi-documentary based audio on gala days, gadgies, losers and high rises.

  • A thin veneer of fake brick cladding and the bitter sensation of loss (2nd) - James Torrance

    15th November 2017 @ 12:30 pm - 1:00 pm

    A specially re-recorded version for Radiophrenia of a live hörspiele work performed at Apologies In Advance #7 (V22 Louise House, Forest Hill) on 19th August 2017. A third and final iteration of the piece is being exhibited as a sound installation at the Angus-Hughes gallery in Hackney throughout November.

    James Torrance is an audio engineer and occasional radio producer, often found dabbling in the more confused corners of sound art and non-music. He has spent a number of years documenting sounds from London’s modernist housing estates and regularly collaborates with artists and film-makers. Amongst other meanderings, his current solo work presents a bricolage of found sound, phonography and hörspiele oddities.

  • AC Projects Residency Osmosis - live in the studio

    15th November 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
    the studio

    Osmosis is the alias of a collective of artists who will use the Creative Lab residency as a platform to examine the boundaries that can exist between the artist and audience, inhibiting the genuine exchange and diversity of shared knowledge. They will mobilise the Creative Lab as a truly fluid and transient platform for exchange of ideas, as an open workshop. Areas of the space will be allocated towards engaging people in different methods of sonic exploration - analogue electronics, rehabilitating and repurposing of defunct machinery, listening stations and creating visual imagery inspired by these investigations.

  • I've had it up to hear with fish and chips - Ben Knight & Tom White

    15th November 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm

    “I’ve had it up to hear with fish & chips is a Hörspiel exploring the role of listening within professional acts of caring. It draws on my experience as a social worker and asylum support volunteer and is composed of interviews with care workers of all kinds. People were then invited to record themselves reading/singing the script in any way they wanted. This material was used as the raw material a live performance and recording”.

    Ben Knight is a Manchester-based musician, researcher, and social worker who has previously worked as a play worker and volunteered with asylum-seeker support charities. He is interested in the politics of listening, singing and publication as a form of performance. He plays music as one third of Human Heads and Katz Mulk and co-edits the DIY journal DANCEHALL with the artist and musician Hannah Ellul.
    Tom White lives and works in London. His work traverses multi-media platforms including sound, experimental film and video, installation and live performance. He has exhibited and performed internationally and published many sound works since 2009 (Vitrine, Chocolate Monk, My Dance the Skull, Alien Passengers). In 2014 he won the British Composer Award in Sonic Art for his piece Public Address, commissioned by the South London Gallery. Performance credits include appearances at NZZN Festival, Rotterdam; Colour out of Space Festival, Brighton; Ende Tymes Festival, New York; Poesia Carnosa Festival, Rome; Spoken Weird, Whitechapel Gallery; MK Gallery; South London Gallery; Café OTO (with Graham Dunning & John Macedo) and a recent UK duo tour with Maya Dunietz.

    I’ve had it up to hear with fish & chips was originally performed for Radiophrenia‘s on air performances last year and we’ve since recorded a new ‘studio’ version.

    15th November 2017 @ 5:40 pm - 6:00 pm

    (1) Pete Stollery - Stolen Voices (10:27)

    Created as part of a larger performance project which deals with eavesdropping. The piece is made entirely out of recordings made around the city of Aberdeen, Scotland, capturing half-heard phrases allowing the listener to formulate their own narratives around what they are hearing, based on their own experience of similar places.

    Pete Stollery studied composition with Jonty Harrison at the University of Birmingham, where he was one of the first members of BEAST in the early ’80s. He composes music for concert hall performance, particularly acousmatic music and more recently has created work for outside the concert hall, including sound installations and internet projects.

    In 1996, along with Alistair MacDonald, Robert Dow and Simon Atkinson, he established the group invisiblEARts whose aim is to perform acousmatic music throughout Scotland and to promote Scottish acousmatic music to a wider audience, both within Scotland and abroad. He is also Chair of the sound festival, Scotland’s annual new music festival.

    His music is published by the Canadian label empreintes DIGITALes.

    Felix Kubin - Entre les incidences / Ping Corridor

    At Radiophrenia Festival 2017 Felix will present his live radio piece “Entre les incidences” and a feedback/sequencer based composition called “Ping Corridor.“

    “Entre les incidences” (between the incidents) is based on Felix Kubin’s archive of “One Shot Recordings”, a collection of sounds which incidentally “occurred” to the artist over the last 10 years. With this personal sound library, Kubin returns to a playground where the origin and meaning of sounds are questioned and expectations undermined. Much like a foley artist who reproduces everyday sounds in the movies, like creating crackling fire effects by rubbing cellophane, Kubin plays a combinatorial game with real and fake names, with correct and false connections – all with the objective to free the sounds from their catalog designation.

    “Ping Corridor“ was developed during an artist residency at Les Atelier Claus in Brussels. The piece consists of automatically created ping filter sequences combined with microphone feedback.

    Felix Kubin is a Hamburg-based artist, whose various experiments and epithets comprise radio art, Hörspiel, composer of futurist electronic pop as well as chamber orchestra music, incendiary performer, record label owner, lecturer and curator. He has made artwork in all sorts of fields since the 1980s, recently “Falling Still” (2016 International Music Festival Hamburg, an orchestral work for boys’ choir, string ensemble, percussion and electronics), “Me & My Rhythm Box” (2017 dOCUMENTA 14, a live radio series about self-built instruments) and “Phantomspeisung” (2017 Bayerischer Rundfunk, a radio play about the “sound” and destruction of microphones).

    Cucina Povera - ‘I’ and ‘O’ as Compositional Basis

    In ‘I’ and ‘O’ as Compositional Basis I look at the dual notion of musical empathy and musical tension as two tenets of improvised composition. The formal use of binary notation is inspired by a decorative oak roundel ‘Stirling Head n. 20’ from 1539. Its border shows carved notation used by court harpists. It amounts to some of the earliest courtly notation to have survived from Scottish renaissance. My aim is to follow the notation, incorporating musical traditions I am indebted to – collective, empathy-driven vocal vernacular, harmonies from classical and late modernism, and largely intuitive, found sound percussion. An innate desire, and the immediate possibility to transcend linguistic and epochal boundaries through sound have inspired this work.

    Cucina Povera is the artist name for Maria Rossi, a Glaswegian-Finnish vocalist and composer currently researching and working on the artistic interface of the grid, early modern binary notation, discordance, language and empathy, and atmospheric, site-nonspecific soundscapes.

    Angharad Williams - Now watch this drive

    Now watch this drive is a trip inside; maybe through a cavity in your tooth or through the tampon that sits within you, now. Appropriated film scores and spoken narratives journey malls, McDonalds and other establishments discovering the scatological landscape of the damned. Think melted nightclubs, think gunfire.

    Angharad Williams is an artist and writer that was born in 1984 in Bangor, Wales. Angharad is currently based in central Europe. Recent solo and group projects have taken place at 3137, Athens; Tate St. Ives, Cornwall; Cubitt, London; Futura, Prague (2017);Transmission Gallery, Glasgow; WallRiss, Fribourg; the Cave, Mallorca (2016). Performances have taken place at CAST, Helston; (2017) W139, Amsterdam, Centre d’Edition, Geneva (2016). Angharad is a regular contributor to The Tube, BUS Editions and in conjunction to her own practice often collaborates with The Woodmill and friends. Forthcoming projects include Hergest: Nant at Cell Project Space in collaboration with Mathis Gasser, and a solo exhibition at Youth Club, London (both 2018).

  • different time different place different pitch: The Call of the Muazzin - Dani Gal & Achim Lengerer

    16th November 2017 @ 1:00 am - 2:00 am

    A series of radio programs By Dani Gal and Achim Lengerer. Originally commissioned by Documenta 14.

    This episode: The Call of the Muazzin

    The Israeli Government passed a bill that denounces the muazzin call to Prayer in
    mosques as noise pollution; meanwhile Pegida activists in Germany play it on their
    loudspeakers. With Abed Abu Shehadeh.

    The radio is an acousmatic instrument. Listeners do not see the origin of the sound,

  • Precipitation Studies

    16th November 2017 @ 2:00 am - 6:00 am

    A series of rainscapes originally created for a rain pavillion designed by the artists Dalziel & Scullion for the Kaust University Campus in Saudi Arabia. All sounds recorded and composed by Mark Vernon.

    Rain has a unique ability to sound out and describe the surfaces in our immediate surroundings, making us newly aware of the timbre, dimensions and other sonic qualities of all things in our vicinity. Rainfall on pots and pans, tubs and tins, car bonnets and cafe tables, park benches and rubbish bins, drainpipes and scaffolding, umbrellas and window panes, conservatories and caravans, pavements and microphones...

    "I opened the front door, and rain was falling. I stood for a few minutes. Lost in the beauty of it. Rain has a way of bringing out the contours of everything; it throws a coloured blanket over previously invisible things; instead of an intermittent and thus fragmented world, the steadily falling rain creates continuity of acoustic experience."

    (from: John M. Hull, Touching the Rock. An Experience of Blindness, Arrow books, London, 1991, pp.22-23)

    2. Geoff Marsh - Blues Butcher

    3. Anne Lepère – Scope

    "The Scope of my dream was melting ... At first, on the upper side ... I was hearing something like a fireworks, strange sounds in the middle of the day... Watching carefully, I realized it was not lights or fire in the sky, but human people... They where falling dawn heavily... making the earth tremble

    Then I reach the underground... In spite of the frightfulness of the upper, people were playing music, there in the subway, a light was penetrating the subterranean ... people were keeping busy at work...A vertical travel in the depths. "

    Anne, (b.1985) is currently living in Brussels. After her studies at l’IHECS (apply communication) she started working as production assistant for the Belgian National Radio show Par Ouï- Dire (La Première - RTBF), building up first hand experience in sound design and exploring related styles as well (field recording, sound art, radio art, radio drama, performance, experimental music). During the years she has worked for several other sound-related projects, Sounds of écodays (eco-festival at Flagey), Monophonic (Festival international de création radiophonique), the radio shows Moniek to name a few. She co-created Karaonomatopiek, a participative sound performance, performed in the Cinéma Galeries à Bruxelles and at Centre Pompidou (BPI) à Paris (2015). Today she is continuing to work at her own creations, where the use of voice is very often chosen as to start from a more intimate point before opening up to a larger frame. Her work has been diffused in Belgium (La Première, Musiq3, Radio Panik, Radio Campus,...), as well as in Europe and beyond (radia.fm, Nova Rté Lyrics), or during events : Kinokophone (New-York), Süden Radio (Berlin / Radio Papesse), Flagey, Centre Culturel Le Brass (Bruxelles), Grand Prix Nova (Roumanie).

    Currently she is exploring the relation between Danse & Sounds, ways of co-construction. She is working with french choreographers such as Marion Sage and Amélie Poirier (Les Nouveaux Ballets du Nord).

    4. Hamish MacPherson - Doomsday is Just Not Coming

    A guided meditation on bitterness, mediocrity and inertness. A chance to journey through past aggravation you can’t forget, and future revenge that never seems to arrive.

    Written and spoken by Hamish MacPherson. Produced by Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau. Commissioned by The Bad Vibes Club and supported by Arts Council England.

    Hamish MacPherson is a London-based artist who uses ideas and methods from choreography and dance to think about politics. He makes workshops, non-digital games, performances, writings, images and other things in artistic, academic and community contexts. HIs work tends to be clusters of many smaller things rather than working up to something like a big show. Current projects include THIS MOVEMENT, using lots of different methods to look at how we (everyone) use our bodies to make politics and Configuration (Hard Care) looking at care as an aesthetic, choreographic and political practice.

  • Listening Experience #6 Recursive Form - Matt Burnett

    16th November 2017 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

    “Listening Experience #6 – Recursive Form” is part of a series of one-hour radio pieces I have created, using air time as a compositional medium rather than a presentation medium. Each episode centers on a concept of sound organization; the concept behind this episode is that of the reuse of existing composed sounds, the recursion of form into itself. In the case of this episode, the exiting sounds are taken from previous episode of “Listening Experience”.

    Matt Burnett lives in Berlin, Germany. His interests center on the musicality of textured sound, and the composition and performance possibilities of the quadraphonic listening space. He studied Electronic Music at Virginia Commonwealth University, graduating with honors. He then studied at the Center for Contemporary Music at Mills College with Maggi Payne and Anthony Braxton. He is the developer of The QuadTool, software that provides the basis for synthesis, composition and performance within the quad listening space.
    He curates a monthly radio program titled Listening Experience. This program focuses on air time as a compositional rather than a performance/presentation medium.

  • The Buffer Zone

    16th November 2017 @ 10:45 am - 11:00 am

    Clara Lou - The Furniture Supper Club (12:33)

    The Furniture Supper Club is a haunted radio play about telephone miscommunication and fraught domesticity. A couple has trouble recalling the name and age of their son, and goes on to enact this senility for another pair of speakers. Voices speak furtively over the telephone, their utterances mingling with those of the operators. Two wanderers attempt to remember if they’ve met before by recalling the particulars of a book one may have loaned the other. These narrative threads overlap and intermingle, creating a layered sonic landscape.

    Clara Lou works with text, performance, and radio. She lives in Brooklyn, New York, USA.

    “So…s… so what we’re seeing here is that there are things you can’t immediately control… you can’t control the motivations and the actions… but what we are seeing them seek to control is the physical space around this as much as they can… there are people as we’ve been speaking to…who are locked in… into other locations… they are now clearing the space around it and they’re… controlling what they can… they can’t control what’s in the mind.”

  • Hero Hymn - Minna-Kaisa Kallinen

    16th November 2017 @ 12:30 pm - 1:00 pm

    Hero Hymn is based on a radio play script Hope written by a Finnish writer Timo K. Mukka (1964). The actual radio play was never dramatized because of the censorship of that time. The play of Mukka tells a story of a young war hero who comes back to his hometown and catches his eye on a maid. Sexuality, the fragility of communication, expectations and needs are written in the text very openly. In this radio play, the war is not mentioned rather the concentration is in the interaction between the Hero and the Girl.

    Minna-Kaisa Kallinen (b.1984, Helsinki Finland) is a multimedia artist working mainly with text, performance, sound and music. Her interest is in words and their many meanings, repetition and systems. She is really interested in stories and their power - how they influence the society and maintain it - how they guide the human behaviour and by that impact to the whole environment. She holds a MFA degree from the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts.

  • Nord Rute - Ross Adams

    16th November 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

    Nord Rute takes the Norwegian Sámi people as its central theme and captures the events of a reindeer migration from Karasjok to the spring birthing pastures on the shores of Porsangerfjord, northern Norway. Amidst the dense, gritty field recordings and sound design by Ross Adams and specially commissioned music by Plaid, Sámi poets Ánde Somby, Ingor Antte Ailu Gaup and Synnove Person travel between city, tundra and underworld sharing their connection to the Norwegian tundra through spoken word and joik.
    Part docu-poem and sound montage, Nord Rute forges ancient knowledge systems with 21st century music.

    Ross Adams has been walking an unknown path to an unknown future in a state of risk within sound and music since 1987.

    Warp Records mainstays Plaid, have been making experimental electronic music for over twenty five years and were founding members of The Black Dog.

    Ánde Somby is a traditional Sámi Joik artist and an associate professor at the Faculty of Law, University of Tromso, specialising in Indigenous Rights Law.

    Synnøve Persen is a Sámi poet and visual artist from Porsanger.

  • The Lady in Her Dimensions - Jolyon Houghton

    16th November 2017 @ 3:45 pm - 4:00 pm

    The Lady In Her Dimensions is a series of writings describing a woman – a relationship, a past love – but explored through theories on the construct of the universe. It allows the unknown to become potential. The real to become magical. It presents a different angle in which to interpret the feelings of loss, guilt, want and regret, and how all things are intimately connected. The piece comes from a collaborative project made with my brother, involving the creation of twelve experimental pieces of writing – stories, plays, poems, scribblings – each developed from the starting point of a photograph.

    Jolyon Houghton is a 28 year old actor and writer from West London, who studied Collaborative & Devised Theatre at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. His writing is a mixture of humour and misfortune, in the form of plays, poems and short stories.

    Written by Jolyon Houghton
    Performed by Jolyon Houghton and John Dobson

  • Panharmonicon - Eothen Stearn

    16th November 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

    “1761, Panharmonicon - A mechanical keyboard instrument that automated the playing of flutes, clarinets, trumpets, violins, cellos, drums, cymbals, triangle, and other instruments. Although the Panharmonicon was mechanical and not electrical, the spirit of the invention lives on in today’s sampling instruments. (Chase & Williston Synthmuseum, 2016)”

    This text examines the entangled, in-between entities and interstitial moments that coexist within a single body, and in doing so, rearranges some of the inherited hierarchies that I embody. Departing from a diaristic form, I have written and re-edited one month’s daily reflections into reoccurring containers; aging, alcohol, friendship, hair, house, living structures, money, sleep and transit. By dismantling the chronological structure for a more associative, cumulative one, I have built new narratives from everyday experiences. Panharmonicon can be read in any order, allowing a reader to choose which narrative inherits the next.

    Into this sampling of experience, I have interwoven the experiences of other people, quoting from writers working on similar territory. I wanted to create a horizontal, non-hierarchical plane including those authors, my writing, and conversations with others, to demonstrate the different ways text enters my body and how my own narrative is inscribed in relation to others, within physical proximity and who’s writing plays a role in my everyday life. Theory and poetry interrupt my life; the ways my life enters my reading is unpredictable.

    The varied voices featuring in this text do not converse as such, instead they build a matrix of feminist writing of the personal, as a source of embodied authority. I have been particularly concerned to write and collate towards an intersectional Feminist position, including passages from philosophy, postcolonial theory, poetry, and music.

    Anne Boyer, Moyra Davey, Simone Forti, Audre Lorde, Eileen Myles, Sarah Manguso, Maggie Nelson, Yvonne Rainer: these women and others capture me and are captured, momentarily in my text, they all use their lived experience to critique the hierarchies and suggest alternatives. By writing with, alongside and through their voices, I embrace messiness and chaos finding moments of clarity, and emerging into knowledge though inductive logic.

    Featuring the voices of:
    Ageing: Johanna Kotlaris
    Alcohol: Sophie Bates
    Body: Shraddha Borawake
    Hair: Erika Roux

    Espen Sommer Eide - Dead Language Poetry

    Every tenth day a language disappears, and at that rate, within a few generations, half of the approximately 6000 languages in the world today will be extinct. What we lose when a language dies is a complex topic which is interesting from both a cultural historical, linguistic and philosophical point of view. With a background in art, music and philosophy, Espen Sommer Eide has used numerous approaches to observe the phenomenon. He is interested in the complexity in the process behind destruction, evolution and creation of language.

    In the performance Dead Language Poetry this subject is treated from an aesthetic perspective. Is it possible to find a unique signature of sound in different languages, and can such an aesthetic aspect be detached from the aspects of knowledge and identity? What is the sound of dead languages, and can it be revived? When Edison invented the phonograph, it was soon seen as a means, not primarily to play music, but to hear voices of dead persons. The voices recorded on the phonograph were experienced as sounds without bodies; as spirits in space. Through deconstructions of language Sommer Eide touches questions about the lines between living and dead languages, between meaning and sound, and between linguistic metaphorical structures and musically structured sound.

    Espen Somer Eide is a musician and artist based in Bergen, Norway. Using sound as a tool, his work investigates themes ranging from linguistics to sensory biology, including the invention of new scientific and musical instruments for performative fieldwork. He has been a prominent representative of experimental electronic music from Norway, with main projectsAlog and Phonophani, and a string of releases on the label Rune Grammofon.
    His works has been exhibited and performed at Bergen Kunsthall, Bergen Assembly, Nikolaj Kunsthal, Manifesta Biennial, Henie Onstad kunstsenter, Stedelijk Museum, De Halle Haarlem, Sonic Acts, Mutek festival, GRM/PresencesÉlectronique, Performa Festival, Museo Reina Sofia and more.

    Ben Knight & Tom White - Difficult To Listen

    Following their 2016 Radiophrenia collaboration Caring Encounters, where a script based around interviews with care workers of all kinds was sung, layered & processed, Ben Knight & Tom White, present a new live hörspiel, Difficult To Listen. A social-science fiction narrative told in a series of minor narrative episodes; film and props, to reflect on the everyday listening events within and around a drop-in centre for refugees in Manchester. Centred around incidental field recordings made by a semi-fictional ethnographer, Difficult To Listen deals with the traces of sonic events interpreted and translated in an attempt to attune to the sounds and acts of listening that occur within the drop-in. It is an approach to performative knowing that resonates with Trinh T. Minh-ha’s notion of not speaking about, just speaking near by… in an attempt to get to grips with the drop-in’s thrown-togetherness – its many voices, improvised social spaces and all the clamours of life that affect how people relate across difference.

    Difficult to Listen draws on Ben Knight’s research from his Audible Citizenship PhD project, and is made with thanks to the drop-in centres in Manchester where he works as a researcher/volunteer.

    Ben Knight (Sheffield, 1983) is a human geographer & musician. He is working on his PhD at the University of Manchester on the politics of listening, asylum and citizenship. He is 1/3 of Human Heads, 1/3 of Katz Mulk and runs Psykick Dancehall Recordings with the artist Hannah Ellul.

    Tom White is a London-based artist. His multidisciplinary practice spreads across sound, moving image, installation and live performance. Past projects include commissions from South London Gallery, Arnolfini, LUX Moving image, MK Gallery & Spill Festival of Performance. He won the British Composer Award 2014 (Sonic Art) for Public Address, commissioned by South London Gallery. He curates Apologies in Advance; a platform for artist’s work in progress performances.

  • 36 Lessons - Manuel Lima

    16th November 2017 @ 9:30 pm - 11:00 pm

    Each day from March 1 to April 5, 2017 Manuel Pessôa de Lima followed the randomly
    generated instructions dictated to him from a Python script to create sound collages from a
    mixture of analogue synthesizer, cassette recorder, and found audio from YouTube videos. Each one of these collages also incorporates an English to Portuguese translation, configuring them as "lessons" which invites new meaning alongside the soundscape.

    Manuel Lima is a composer-performer from Brazil. His diverse work includes
    lecture-performances (‘Lecture On The Love Song’), sound and light installations (‘Red-Cube’) and endurance performance pieces (‘The Cube’ - a ten-day work living inside a self-built structure with a piano). He also works in cross-disciplinary platforms such as theater, dance, and video. Has a digital release thru Oto Cafe and an album thru Editions Verde , has performed in Berlin, Los Angeles, Melbourne, Tel Aviv, Antwerp, São Paulo and London.

  • Nomenrature - Hanan Benammar

    15th November 2017 @ 11:00 pm-16th November 2017 @ 1:00 am

    The live transmission happened at Radio FSK Hamburg in January 2017 as the outcome of a week workshop organized by Radikal Unsichtbar in collaboration with the Ethnography Museum of Hamburg. It was lead by me. We discussed and research German colonial history in Namibia. The participants looked at this specific history through the lens of my lexicon/work and with the materials I brought in addition to the Museum's archive. We had another two hours live performance during Blurred Edges Festival in June 2017.

  • You're a Market - Zachary Zena Giberson

    16th November 2017 @ 11:00 pm - 11:30 pm

    You’re a Market explores the uncanny way in which capitalism transmutes every random, unique trait of yours into fodder for advertisement and financial gain. Every seemingly unique thing about yourself is highly marketable. Your sexuality, your race, your hobbies, every random and chosen thing that makes up You is yet another tool used by companies to sell you something. Even your important social movements are fodder for profit in America. If your personality is just another selling point, how do you truly be yourself in the United States of America? Why identify as anything at all?

    Zachary Zena Giberson is a 27 year old sound artist living in Austin, Texas. He has been creating original music since 2004 and now has 22 wild, eclectic, and fearlessly experimental albums to his name that defy easy genre classification. He primarily creates collage based “coincidental” music, or music that is created entirely out of unrelated musical segments. Zachary Zena Giberson’s bracing, highly mutable work has been compared to that of Nurse With Wound and Black Dice.

     


  • Sumptuous Sinews - David Snow

    16th November 2017 @ 11:30 pm - 12:00 am

    Sumptuous sinews is a speculative-fiction free verse poetry cycle with music, told from the perspective of an autonomous Artifical Intelligence entity that was programmed at a university computer lab. Intellectually weaned on random bits of culture vacuumed up from the Internet, it discovers that self-awareness, with its attendant need for emotional connection and authenticity, is more of a curse than a gift.

    The compositions of David Jason Snow have been performed in concert by the Ensemble Intercontemporain, the New Juilliard Ensemble, the American Brass Quintet, the Harvard Wind Ensemble, and other ensembles throughout the United States, Europe, Asia and Africa. He holds degrees in music composition from the Eastman School of Music and Yale University.

    Joel Snow received a doctoral degree from Yale University in 1983 for research performed at Brookhaven National Laboratory's Alternating Gradient Synchrotron on Long Island. He is an associate professor of physics at Langston University and an adjunct associate professor of physics at the University of Oklahoma.

  • Sounds from the Magnetosphere - Stephen Shiell

    17th November 2017 @ 1:00 am - 2:30 am

    These natural radio field recordings were made whilst watching the sunrise on Black Rock Desert in Nevada, from the perimeter fence of Burning Man 2016. The recordings were made using a very low frequency receiver (made by Stephen P McGreevy) and a self-created magnetic coil antenna. The VLF receiver picks up sounds from the magnetosphere so being in a remote place like Black Rock gave me the perfect opportunity to make some recordings. Apart from a little interference from festival security radio, the sounds are largely weather systems in the earth’s atmosphere and potentially some beeps from ‘ALPHA’, the Russian long wave radio navigation system.

    I work with sound and site-specificity. I explore social, political and physical landscapes through sound, re-interpreting and re-imagining, using field recordings, assemblage, found objects, digital processes and improvisation. I have performed around the UK and internationally, from a Herring Museum in Iceland to a steam ship in the Pool of London. In recent years, alongside solo composition and performance, I have been focused on work with The Study Group, a London based group dedicated to learning the work of Pauline Oliveros; Breathing Space, a collective creating site specific sound work outside the traditional performance space; and Blanc Sceol, an improvising duo.

  • Commence Exuding The Opaque Vapour - Barry Burns

    17th November 2017 @ 2:30 am - 7:00 am

    For the last five years I have taken a sample from every video I watch on my laptop. As a tip of the hat to William Burroughs and Robert Anton Wilson I take the sample from the 23rd minute. Each sample is arranged and layered chronologically, constructing an aleatory narrative, a random DJ mix of dialogue, music and foley, a self portrait of viewing habits and memory. VHS rips merge with Blu Ray restorations, youtube binges mingle with abandoned box sets.

    Barry Burns is not the bloke out of Mogwai, its a different, unsuccessful one. He is the co-manager of Radiophrenia and has used his immense power to give himself the highly coveted 5am slot.

    1. Lin Li – Virginia Woolf’s A Haunted House

    In this series of audio work by Lin Li, abridged versions of short stories in the public domain are created by using the first sentences in all or some of the paragraphs of the original text. The disconnected sentences form a semi-coherent structure within which other sounds are weaved together to accentuate the enigmatic quality of the narrative, providing space for imagination.

    Originally from Hong Kong, Lin Li is now based in Scotland. She has been using sound and moving image in her creative practice since 2011.

    2. Sabrina Rogers - Tentram Composition 2

    Tentram is a game, virtual reality environment, and adaptive composition. Presented here is an enveloping, tranquil sound world for virtual reality game space. The concept for Tentram is to create a calming environment using adaptive composition and visuals based on the design of a Japanese Zen garden. This project can be experienced in several ways - as a composition, a virtual reality game with user interaction in real time, and as an audiovisual experience. Tentram explores the possibilities of creating a soothing space in the medium of virtual reality, using sound design and music to help evoke a sense of calm.

    I am a sound designer and violinist, based in Edinburgh. I have recently finished studying for my masters degree in Sound Design at the Univerity of Edinburgh. I've been interested in audio for many years and studied Music Technology and Sonic Arts at Queens Univerity for my undergraduate degree. I am enthusiastic about adaptive audio-visual work, interactive systems, and virtual reality.

    3. Vincent Eoppolo - Crisis Trilogy

    I view my works as a synthesis of various sound art traditions including musique concrete, acousmatic music and radio art. In my work I strive to present brief moments of the world we are living in. Society in the continuing process of realizing itself. Our relationship with each other, with technology, our morality, spirituality, sexuality, our anxieties and fears. In many ways my works are like sociological and psychological commentaries. My work has been featured on Bernard Clarke's program Nova on RTE's Lyric FM, Phaune Radio from Montpellier, France as well as Radio Art International on CHOQ Radio in Montreal. My works were recently presented at the 2017 New York City Electro-Acoustic Music Festival.

    Yours truly with the irrepressible Bissecta De Kinsâme. Bissecta's words from her poetry compilation "Cycle". Pytchblend's words where improvised.

    Pytchblend (aka Darryl Lucas) is an English sound artist living in Buxton, Derbyshire. His work studies the half-awake moments before the onset of sleep using AMSR and frisson-inducing spectral sound manipulation , creating audio ‘dreamlets’. Currently creating sounds as a solo artist and with the Pangaean Permafaction Anglo-Australian collective.
    To date, Pytchblend has released three albums, Bloodlines (2014), Doxa (2015) and Sweat (2016) which are available on Bandcamp and listed on Discogs. Copies for review and broadcast are available on request. Pytchblend is a regular on RTÉ’s Nova in Ireland, Berlin Community Radio and is published on Bandcamp, Soundcloud and youtube.

    6. Marco Dibeltulu - Il nastro di Möbius

    Il nastro di Möbius: The Möbius strip, “continuous” geometric surface, is universally used as the symbol of recycling, and therefore – with all due transpositions – it fully expresses the musical concept of cyclicality. For this reason, this work has used concrete sonic materials evoking the treatment of industrial waste, but also the most common sonic objects, which have been processed through the use of loops, rhythmic accumulation and the re-proposition of “themes”. The intent of the composition is to re-assemble the objects handled, so as to design a contemporary soundscape, which is an integral part of our daily lives.

    I’m an electroacoustic composer, I’m from Sardinia, Italy.

    7. Vincent Eoppolo - Virtual Morality Play

    8. Mark Briggs (Gas Tower) – Grey Matter

    Grey Matter is an original audio work that is a play on affect and effect; saying something with emotion and feeling, understanding it’s real and that you mean it. Effect and affect; best use irony so as to not come across as or appear to be, a wet sack of douche.

    Mark Briggs is an artist based in Glasgow working in the moving image. Over the last five years he has produced a series of works under the title of gas-tower. His work challenges subjective experience against the expanded theory of ‘liveness’ a willingness to speak to the present with immediacy and a sense of reality.

    3. Luke Pell – Claire Cunnningham F/our Feet

    Some Words to Wander With are a series of recordings as part of In the Ink Dark, a dance and a poem made from from memory and conversation. A project from Luke Pell and collaborators. Created as part of the project invited voices - artists who make dances, whose works are both poetic and choreographic - offer a collection of musings that speak to words and to dances, bodies and buildings, science and nature, to thought and to feeling, to memory, materiality, landscape and loss. They are wisdoms for living, some words to wander with where you live, at work, at rest, at home, away.

    Fascinated by detail, nuances of time, texture, memory and landscape Luke Pell is a maker and curator who collaborates with other artists and organisations imagining alternative contexts for performance, participation and discourse that might reveal wisdoms for living. Noticing threads that weave between people and place his artistic projects take form as intimate encounters, poetic objects, installations and environments - choreographies - for physical and virtual spaces.

    4. Steven Trimmer - Dep of Tones Ep. 2: Moving To Mars

    "The Department of Tones was founded to covertly distribute influential audio throughout homes in select US cities. From the late 1970's until the mid 1990's millions were unknowingly exposed to these stories and sounds. Working with engineers and producers from the original production team we have sought to recreate some of these segments from memory."

    Steven Trimmer is a Sound and Media artist living in Felton, California. He recently graduated from the MFA program in Digital Arts New Media at University of California, Santa Cruz. Steven works as an arts educator and in media installation at The Randall Museum in San Francisco.

    5. Garrett Tiedemann - Last Thursday (in Fragments) Episode 7 - I Think That's It

    In 2015 Don Chambers hosted "a music and other things entertainment" each month called The Last Thursday. Each month had its own theme and governed not only the types of content, but way of presentation for the evening. These evenings lived and died in the moment with very little social media promotion or archiving.
    In series 2 of The White Whale we offer snippets of these evenings; providing first glimpses beyond the nights of what went down and why their existence foregoing online permanence is important. Visit http://www.donchambersmusic.com/ for music and more.

    Garrett Tiedemann is a radio producer, journalist, filmmaker and composer. He works for American Public Media covering the breadth and depth of composed music for YourClassical and Classical Minnesota Public Radio while also producing films, music videos, music and the podcast The White Whale via his production company CyNar Pictures. As a freelancer, he has lent production and compositional approaches to the podcasts Vanishing Ink, Here Be Monsters, The Organist, ARRVLS, Life of the Law, and Top Score. Additionally, he manages production and strategy for the oral history/storytelling project SisterStory.

    7. Mikromedas - OGLE-2005-BLG-390Lb_07

    Mikromedas is a data-driven musical project in which compositions are elaborated using data from space, deep space and numerical simulation models related to various astrophysical phenonoma. Compositions in the project are produced using source material that consists of sampled (live) radio astronomical data (e.g. data as recorded by several spacecrafts such as Voyager1, Voyager or registered data emitted by various pulsar stars which is over 22000 years old), observed and simulated numerical astrophysical data streams turned into sounds using newly developed sonification techniques.

    Dr. Valery Vermeulen is an electronic musician, mathematician, new media artist, author and visiting professor at the Art & Technology dep at Erasmus University College in Brussels (BE). He holds a Phd in pure mathematics from Ghent University (BE) as well as a masters degree in Music Composition at the Royal Conservatory of Ghent (BE). Since 2003 Vermeulen has been working on various multimedia projects where the interaction between man, machine and mathematics plays a central role. His work covers a broad range of disciplines including generative art, algorithmic music composition, (generative) sound synthesis, affective computing, astrophysics and data sonification.

    8. Makers Marks – Makers Suite

    Makers Marks is an ongoing collaborative project which brings together sound designers, glass artists, and engineers. We question the nature of glass through dialogue between media and conversation among team members. One of our goals is to preserve and share the sounds of traditional glassmaking in distinctive ways. Our team of composers and audio engineers isolated glass art making sounds from the studio environment in field recordings, and then developed and transformed these source sounds into virtual instruments. "Makers Suite", by composer David Faleris, is the first musical composition to be entirely created from our source audio and developed sounds.

    The Makers Marks team is led by PhD student Lisa Naas and composer David Faleris, who are both based in Glasgow. Faleris composed "Makers Suite" with additional production assistance from members of the larger team, which include sound designers XueRan Chen (Los Angeles) Alessandro Mastroianni (Turin), and Marcin Pietruszewski (Edinburgh). Faleris graduated from Berklee College of Music in Valencia, Spain with a Master of Music in Scoring for Film, Television, and Video Games; his focus is on composing for visual media and new works for the concert hall. Naas is pursuing her doctorate in design at Edinburgh College of Art.

  • different time different place different :Terra Nullius- Dani Gal & Achim Lengerer

    17th November 2017 @ 10:00 am - 10:45 am

    A series of radio programs By Dani Gal and Achim Lengerer. Originally commissioned by Documenta 14.

    This episode: Terra Nullius - Physical soundscapes from remote areas in Australia by Robert Curgenven echo the country's colonial practices.

    The radio is an acousmatic instrument. Listeners do not see the origin of the sound,
    their experience is shaped both by the their own interpretation, and the manipulation
    of the producer in a political system.

    Our programs work on the space between documentary and Musique concrète.
    Each show focuses on political events that are connected to acoustic events. This
    creates an acousmatic documentary where the programs become sound-objects.
    The programs response to the 'image saturated society' discourse, by asking what is
    the function of sound as a document in times of live video feeds that can be broadcast
    by anyone.

    Dani Gal (born 1975, Jerusalem) lives and works in Berlin. He studied at the Bezalel
    Academy for Art and Design in Jerusalem; the Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende
    Künste Städelschule in Frankfurt; and the Cooper Union in New York. His flms and
    works have been shown widely, including: Documenta 14, 54th Venice Biennale
    (2011), The Istanbul Biennale (2011), The New Museum New York (2012),
    Kunsthalle St. Gallen Swizerland (2013), The Jewish museum New York (2014),
    Berlinale Forum Expanded (2014), Kunsthaus Zurich (2015) Kunsthalle Wien (2015)
    And more.

    Achim Lengerer works on political questions of speech and language that he
    thematizes in performances, radio plays or spatializes within installations and
    publications. Lengerer founded different collaborative projects such as freitagsküche
    in Frankfurt a. M. and voiceoverhead, with Dani Gal. Since 2009 Lengerer runs the
    Berlin based showroom and publishing house Scriptings. Different Artists are invited
    – all of which are working with the formats of script and text within their processes of
    production. Lengerer is currently working on his Ph.D. at Goldsmiths, University of
    London, UK, on the format of the rehearsal as an actual format for socio-political
    negotiations.

  • The Olive Oil Tank - Alyssa Moxley

    17th November 2017 @ 10:45 am - 11:00 am

    "The Olive Oil Tank" is an improvised performance work consisting of feedback generated with contact mics and transducers placed on an empty industrial olive oil container and a voice sung into the tank.

    Alyssa Moxley accesses narratives of identity, place, space, and embodied experience through sound. She utilizes microphone techniques, field recording, interviews, composition, digital and analog sound design, speaker placement, and sculpture to create detailed sonic interventions and environments that relate to networks of memory and knowledge distribution.

  • Record Store - Janie Nicoll and Chris Biddlecombe live in the studio

    17th November 2017 @ 11:00 am - 11:30 am

    ‘Record Store’ is a collaborative project initiated by visual artists Chris Biddlecombe and Janie Nicoll, aka Obstacle Soup, in collaboration with (currently 39) other artists, for whom being in bands, DJ-ing and collecting music has been pivotal to their artistic practice. The project, part exhibition, part fantasy record shop, explores and celebrates the fertile cross-pollination between visual arts and music that has so influenced Scotland’s cultural scene, and in which independent record stores have played such an important historical role. Record Store has taken the form of exhibitions/ interventions in record shops - Monorail, Glasgow and Avalanche, Edinburgh; and most recently at Seventeen Gallery, formerly One Up Records in Aberdeen, as part of Look Again Festival http://www.lookagainfestival.co.uk/

    Janie Nicoll and Chris Biddlecombe both have a history of making work in the form of site specific installations using a variety of techniques that create ambigious dialogues with the viewer using cultural, historical or social references.

    The Record Store project explores visual images that are connected to music, how expectation can be better than the product, and when does a sound become an object to hold and treasure.

    Often the 12" record cover acts as either a point of anticipation or reflection, at the point of purchase or after the first listen. This project places the 12" cover at the centre of the action and the music remains in the viewers head - there is no necessary disappointment about what lies on the grooves in this dislocated fiction.

  • Spawning In The Name Of - Meira Asher & Maya Dunietz

    17th November 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm

    While planning to meet for a 24hrs. radiophrenia session, we managed to relaunch, yet again, our elemental theme, with which we are engaged during 2017-2018, namely, the Israeli colonisation and occupation of Palestine for 69, 70 years respectively.

    We discuss Maya’s new piece “18 Songs” for Choir and ensemble in the Arabic language, a language which is officially excluded by the Israeli State, of which its texture is systematically used to distance, separate and scare the Israeli population although being the mother tongue of half of its’ citizens. “I innocently believe that through the work of music, choir members in Israel will get the chance to initiate and embrace the Arabic language, a Semitic sister of their own language… “ Meira’s “The Last shall be First” Sound-Text act, together with artist Eran Sachs, has just returned from its 2nd trial at HearSay Audio festival in Ireland. “Dissecting Fanon’s words on our Israeli Colonial bloody sound altar is another ambiguous issue to explore…”

    We play parts of the projects, discuss them, and knead together some specific materials from them.

    Featuring the voices and sounds of Daphne Banai - Machsom Watch, Tamer Masalha, Tamara Nasser, Bat-Kol Choir, Eran Sachs, Anat Pick, Faye Shapiro.

    Thanks: The Radiophrenia team, Guy Hirschfeld, Liam Evans, Jeff Zorilla.

  • holding on to the will - Dirar Kalash

    17th November 2017 @ 12:30 pm - 1:00 pm

    “Holding onto the will // wily dancing with twenty one passing winds”

    “Holding onto the will // wily dancing with twenty one passing winds” is a no-input-mixer piece, mostly improvised, but with a direction in mind, moving from ambient drone sounds to harsher sounds, not simply as an attempt to structure a certain form, but rather as a focus on content an expression which are essentially poetic, as the starting point for the work was the title as a poetic expression that gravitates close to a human gesture. However, the choice of a no-input mixer setup, as a purely machinic-electronic setup, which essentially contrasts a human gesture with a machinic one, came out of the need of a live and interactive setup that could allow a variety of sounds and noises which could be approached as raw and primal, however commonly heard as “feedback noises”, yet they allow for a particular tension that constitutes a creative framework which is able to merge experiment with experience, due to the unexpected “feedback based” nature of this setup, the choice of such musical and sonic tools also raises questions on the possibilities of sonic and and poetic condensation.

    About Dirar Kalash

    Dirar Kalash is a musician and sound artist whose work spans a wide range of musical and sonic practices within a variety of compositional and improvisational contexts. His performative and compositional approaches to instruments, techniques, and aesthetics are highly political as they challenge dichotomies, hierarchies, and binary logics of new/old and west/east as tools of cultural imperialism and hegemony. The methods he uses are based upon his research into the intersections and relationships of music and sound with other contexts such as language, architecture, mathematics, visual arts and further social and human sciences. His regular solo and collaborative performances include but are not limited to audio-visual performances, free jazz groups, string ensembles, solo piano, and live electronics.

    1. Marco Dibeltulu - Nello spazio sommerso

    An imaginary trip inside the human mind can be the attempt to find a submerged space: logic and irrationality in its structure coexist, sometimes concrete, sometimes imperceptible. It is the reason to follow the compass that inexorably leads to the reality of the already explored: the surface which support human knowledge.

    Marco Dibeltulu (Alghero, Italy, 1971) studied at the Conservatory of Cagliari Composition, Choral Music and Electronic Music.

    2. Alexis Weaver - Connect Four

    Four millennials are asked about their childhood memories; four very different experiences are offered in response. This work features snippets of each interview, revealing a poignant aperture through which the vivid young mind can be glimpsed. The sounds and sensations of childhood are interwoven with each voice, creating nostalgic evocations of video tapes, lego and sometimes even nightmares. Accompanied by performance art at its premiere, Connect Four translates well as a radiophonic work, allowing listeners to immerse themselves in the memories and sounds of different childhood objects, hopes and fears.

    Alexis Weaver is a young electroacoustic composer based in Sydney, Australia. Growing up close to the pristine beaches and landscapes of Jervis Bay, Alexis is fascinated by sounds of the natural world. By fusing her classical education with music technology, Alexis aims to create powerful abstract works and bring the wonder of sound to new audiences.

    3. Niall Morris & Rachel Woodside – Fairy Takes: Snow White

    A recollection of two popular fairy tales, recounted without drawing on resources of digital technology or long kept copies of childhood books. Sloppy and erratic at points it takes a questioning yet assertive tone, presiding dominance over ‘true’ fiction. The difficulty and humour arising from these recordings perhaps highlights at points our turning attitudes towards long term memory in the digital age: the shift of our greater memory from within our heads and shelves to online resources.

    Niall Morris (b. Glasgow, 1991) is a musician and software developer living and working in Glasgow. I make work concerned with radio, time experience, technology and performance.

    Rachel Woodside (b. Belfast, 1995) is an artist studying, working and living in Glasgow. My sculptural based practice uses form, colour and scale to tackle issues surrounding accessibility of work for both brains and bodies.

    4. Matthew Grouse - Trio mvt.II

    Trio is a two movement electroacoustic work, comprising source material exclusively taken from recordings of violin (Matilda Cubarsi), double bass (Benjamin Burnley) and piano (Matthew Grouse), also making use of the rehearsing and directing process in the second movement. I was interested in exhibiting a contrast in gestural ideas, some familiar in a traditional instrumental trio setting, and some synonymous with electronic music. Playing with the concept of functionality and hierarchy, whilst blurring the divide between the material of each instrument leant itself to finding some interesting sonic and structural combinations.

    Matthew Grouse, 21, is in his final year at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, studying composition with David Fennessy and Electro/Acoustic composition with Dr Alistair MacDonald. His work regularly combines media and is often concerned with human frailties and the everyday. Another large source of inspiration comes from a variety of arts, especially a love of film.

    5. Patrick Blake – Winners

    A soundscape piece composed in September of 2015. The piece was recorded around the Hillhead area of Glasgow. The piece articulates interior and exterior spaces, with snippets of overhead conversations alternately locating and alienating the listener within the site of recording.

    Patrick Blake is a student at the University of Glasgow, currently pursuing a Masters degree in Electronics with Music. During his studies, within and without the University, he has explored various arenas of experimental music - from jazz and leftfield pop to electro-acoustic performance and composition. His main musical output can be heard with the bands Neuro Trash and Expert Group, both of which have new material to be released online this year.

    6. Simon Cotton – Suikinkutsu

    A Suikinkutsu is a musical installation used in Japanese gardens, it is a buried jar that is tuned so that water seeping into it produces a chiming, bell like sound. It has a meditative quality and was traditionally used to focus the mind before a tea ceremony.

    I am a composer/sound designer based in Cornwall, I am concerned with the relationship between music and noise and I explore this through field recording and generative music, produced with Max Msp. I am heavily influenced by landscape and environment and much of my work relates to specific locations.
    I have also had a long term interest in producing music for visual media and have a BA in scoring for film and TV.

    8. Steven Trimmer - Dept of Tones Ep1: Truffle butter

    "The Department of Tones was founded to covertly distribute influential audio throughout homes in select US cities. From the late 1970's until the mid 1990's millions were unknowingly exposed to these stories and sounds. Working with engineers and producers from the original production team we have sought to recreate some of these segments from memory."

    Steven Trimmer is a Sound and Media artist living in Felton, California. He recently graduated from the MFA program in Digital Arts New Media at University of California, Santa Cruz. Steven works as an arts educator and in media installation at The Randall Museum in San Francisco.

  • When Silence Sings - DinahBird

    17th November 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm

    Venice is a well known tourist stop, but how many people wander off the official paths and stop to listen to the sounds of the city? In this sonic reflection, we hear Venice through the ears of some of its residents, including Tonie, a Norwegian psychologist who has been deaf from birth. Tonie, who was brought up in rural Norway and did not learn to speak until she was five years old, has been living in Venice for the past 12 years.

    As she takes us on a walk through the city she now calls home, she remembers as a small child her father taking her out to feel the wind and the spray from the waterfalls, creating complex acoustic set ups in the garden with the aim of amplifying the vibrations in nature, in order to help her understand the concept of sound and words. For Tonie these walks in the Telemark mountains gave resonance to an inner world. Fifty years later and now equipped with ‘digital ears’ Tonie’s enthusiasm and passion for her acoustic environment has not died and has led her to explore further her particular way of hearing. She leads us down alleyways and into intimate little pockets of the city, all the while meditating on what role not being able to hear has played in her life, and in turn, inviting us to reflect on how we listen to our everyday lives.

    First broadcast on BBC Radio 3’s ‘Between The Ears’ on 22nd November 2009.

    It is a Loftus production. It is recorded and produced by DinahBird.

    It was nominated for a Radio Academy Creative Award in February 2010.

     


  • Palmovka & Judit Emese Konopas live

    17th November 2017 @ 2:30 pm - 3:00 pm

    Palmovka & Judit Emese Konopas live is an improvised live collaboration, recorded in Judit's house in Ujpest, in the outskirts of Budapest. We've been collaborating on field recording and soundwalks. This particular recording is a ghostly journey through disembodied recesses of memory.

    Judit Emese Konopas got in touch with the meaning of space from an early age as she finished her degrees as an architect. From the beginning of her professional career, she focused on visualization and form of spaces. Her further interests widely spread into different genres such as architecture, art, music, photography and contemporary dance. After a phase of bouncing around them, she recently experiments on connecting the different fields, layering and emerging them into soundsculptures.

    Lucia Udvardyová is a music journalist and organizer/curator, a musician and a DJ. She runs a platform for underground music from Central & Eastern Europe called Easterndaze, as well as the tape label Baba Vanga. Her music is improvised, a result of flaneuresque driftings and encounters.

     


  • What Needs Doing - Hannah Ellul live in the studio

    17th November 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 3:30 pm
    the studio

    A sonic essay about the life of Betty Tebbs, an English political activist who died in January 2017, at the age of 98. From Lancashire, Tebbs was a socialist, feminist and self-declared revolutionary whose long life was spent agitating for political change, including as a trade unionist and anti-imperialist peace campaigner. A live collage of readings, archival recordings and field recordings recounts an Impressionistic biography that considers the affective and embodied aspects of political experience, and asks how our encounters with the histories of collective struggle inform renewed efforts of political imagination in the present.

    Hannah Ellul is a Manchester-based artist and musician working primarily in text, performance, video and sound. Much of her work addresses radical political imagination, often in relation to overlooked histories. With Ben Knight she is part of the collaborative project Psykick Dancehall, exploring sound across media: the politics of listening, recording technologies and the voice. Since 2010 they have produced DANCEHALL, a publication about sound and its others. She received her MFA at the Glasgow School of Art in 2010 and is a lecturer in Visual Cultures at Goldsmiths, University of London, where she completed her PhD in 2017.

  • A New Area - Cecilia

    17th November 2017 @ 3:30 pm - 4:00 pm

    A New Area is comprised entirely of personal field recordings taken both seperately and collaboratively by each half of Cecilia, Brandon Hurtado and Dana Ollestad, over the past 4 years. Utilizing recordings taken almost entirely within the artist's homes, the piece attempts to create sonic environments by combining recordings of entirely seperate places, taken in complete isolation to one another. Recordings were taken via cassete, microcassette, cell phone, and various handheld digital recorders and microphones.

    Cecilia is Brandon Hurtado and Dana Ollestad currently based in Richmond, VA. Cecilia engages with Cageian techniques such as chance operations, prepared instruments, and playing found objects. They utilize tape loops, hand-built contact and light sensitive microphones and generative/audience interactive systems.

  • Bio-electric Radio - Absolute Value of Noise

    17th November 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 4:40 pm

    Bio-electric Radio imagines a world where electronics and living plants have merged and hybridized into "living circuits." These circuits make sounds and broadcast them to the world using long antennas made of vines. The sound is made up of recordings of individual bees (honey bees, bumble bees, miners, leaf-cutters, and unidentified varieties) mixed with tones and sound artifacts from bio-electric synthesizer modules (modules that use parts of the plant within their circuitry).

    Absolute Value of Noise (Peter Courtemanche) is a sound and installation artist from Vancouver. He creates radio, installations, network projects, performances, curatorial projects, outdoor sound works, and handmade CD editions. He likes to work with "gadgetry" - custom turntables, lamp filaments, wire coils, high voltage ionizers, magnetic transmitters and receivers. He has done numerous projects for Art's Birthday - an annual celebration and "network event" on January 17th. In 2007 he founded Second Site collective - a group of artists creating electronic art for outdoor spaces.
