  • Benjamin Nelson - Non-Location No.2

    19th May 2019  2:00 am - 5:00 am

    programme/artist information

    Non-Locations are a series of works intended to mirror or imitate “natural” environments, but are completely synthetic – somewhat familiar, but abstracted, or “not as it should be”. We hear the small clicking of insects, rustling, air ambience, etc. Through immersion into the synthetic environment while also recalling our own past sound experiences, including those of idealized environments such as we may encounter in films, we also create a new third territory in ourselves. These Non-Locations can serve as starting points for thinking about what we consider natural or artificial, desirable or not, or places to do nothing but listen.

    Benjamin Nelson is an American artist and musician currently living in Vienna, Austria. His work tends to focus on reductionist/post-minimalist, site-specific and durational practices. Often invoking hypothetical objects or landscapes through slow moving or sometimes completely static sheets of sound, Nelson seeks to reveal the motion, detail, and textures that are present within sounds that may otherwise go unnoticed.

  • Sophocles Arvantis - Wondering Around - Grey Clouds

    19th May 2019  6:45 am - 7:00 am

    programme/artist information

    sophocles arvanitis (1980).
    his work focuses on the composition of electro-acoustic music on fixed medium,the creation of sound installations and on improvised live electronic and mixed music. it involves intermediary positions, in the composition of systems that can produce aesthetic results, the composition of sound, the creation of musical material and in spatialization of the musical material. his work is influenced by characteristics of the various environments of sound that surround us in our every day existence, by the systematic relationships between humans and sonic environments and by ideas about structuring and form.

     


  • Postcards from the Volcano - Undercliff Walk

    19th May 2019  7:00 am - 8:00 am

    programme/artist information

    This piece is part of a radio series where we invite someone to take us to a place significant to them. We explore the location together, making recordings of our conversation and the landscape. In the studio we weave together the recordings with live improvisation and layered sounds in keeping with the atmosphere evoked by the original walk.

    For this show we met Ingrid Plum, Sound Artist, Improviser and Composer, who took us on a walk suspended between sea and sky, heading east along the coastline from Brighton to Saltdean. The show features tracks from Ingrid’s albums ‘Plangent’ and ‘Taut’.

    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.

    19th May 2019  8:00 am - 9:00 am

    programme/artist information

    1. Raphaële Dupire Loubaton – Topologies de la limite
    2. Jack Mills – Miniature Action Sequence
    3. Anselm McDonnell – Crossing the Firth
    4. Bobbi Cameron – keep that blood sugar up, honey
    5. Abby Lee Tee – Simulacrum VIII-XIV
    6. Samuel A.D. Martin – Bed of Amber
    7. Kala Pierson – Metallic Focusing
    8. Marco Dibeltulu – Microclima III
    9. Archivosonoro – Don-Renato-Lata-5-1

    1. Raphaële Dupire Loubaton – Topologies de la limite

    Topologies est une pièce tripartite. La naissance de cette trilogie a été guidée par une réflexion autour de la notion de seuil. C’est une exploration des espaces sonores aux limites du son, du spectre et des espaces d’écoute. Vertige des hauteurs, c’est l’espace exigü du haut du spectre, les pentes desquelles on glisse du silence dans l’audibilité. La pointe intérieure sur laquelle on se dresse pour écouter. Le point qui se tend dans l’oreille pour mieux ouïr. La matérialisation du tympan comme lieu de l’entendu. Vallées basses, au contraire, enveloppe le corps entier comme lieu de résonance. Le lieu d’écoute s’étire à mesure que le spectre s’ouvre et le tient dans une masse à hauteurs confondues. A la rencontre de ces deux extrêmes l’on se trouve dans l’ Espace lié de l’Horizon.

    Raphaële Dupire studied Philosophy and Performing Arts at the University of Paris X.
    As an improviser, she is part of the LANDS trio (minimalist landscape music) with Anouck Genthon and Edward Williams. As a composer, she collaborates with Camille Thilloy, visual artist, in an experimental duo BOA (video/music). As a performer, she creates scores, practices choreographic improvisation. Also, she composes for live shows and regularly interprets acousmatic pieces. Her work weaves links between technical activities and artistic practices, between ephemeral constructions and music, dance and visual arts.

    2. Jack Mills – Miniature Action Sequence

    The work is made using a collection of found sound recordings I made in my old bedroom in Fife with various processing techniques applied to try to create an interesting listen. It uses multiple layers of repetition, aiming to create a sense of rhythmic complexity without a distinguishable grid structure.

    I’m from Scotland but have ended up living in England for work. I make experimental music when I can and have never done anything with this file.

    3. Anselm McDonnell – Crossing the Firth

    Crossing the Firth manipulates vocal materials derived from a single plainchant melody and its spectral analysis. The plainchant was sourced from the Inchcolm Antiphon, a collection of Scottish chants used in the Abbey on Inchcolm, an island in the Firth of Forth. The piece explores interaction and dialogue over great distance or insurmountable barriers, hence the notion of crossing. By using references to sacred music and the ethereal effects produced by extreme reverb, the work reflects on the changing terrain of Inchcolm due to erosion and uses this as an analogy for Scotland’s distancing from its spiritual past.

    Anselm McDonnell is a Northern Irish composer based in Belfast. His instrumental and choral works often integrate extended techniques and theatrical elements such as vocalisation or stage directions alongside more conventional writing to increase the dramatic impact of the work. His music has been performed in Japan, Russia, France, Czech Republic, North America (New York) and various locations around the UK and Ireland.

    4. Bobbi Cameron – keep that blood sugar up, honey

    How can we imagine and build a queer sex space dedicated to the desires of women and non binary people? This work is a one-take live recording from a workshop with women and non binary people based in Glasgow. Together we explored different ways that we could
    answer this question and build a utopic space dedicated to our desires.

    Bobbi Cameron is a queer artist based in Glasgow. Her work is concerned with materiality and using acts of queering (often sound based) to dismantle and disrupt normative confinements of space, place and both constructed and bodily architectures. Bobbi is currently on the MFA at Glasgow School of Art.

    5. Abby Lee Tee – Simulacrum VIII-XIV

    “Imaginary Friends I” draws immersive little pictures of (re)imagined places and their inhabitants, or rather, the other way round. While imaginary companions are still mistakenly associated with deficits or even mental health issues most of the time, researchers say that they can be an important way to develop creativity and coping skills, not only for children. Beside bedding your cuddly toys for the night, it just feels natural to build them a sonic home too, twisting everyday-life sounds as well as acoustic instruments and arcane field recordings, always exploring the boundaries of human perceptions of nature and artificial worlds. Expect obscure soundscapes full of grunting hedgehogs, squeaking otters, sizzling electric fences and whistling water kettles.

    6. Samuel A.D. Martin – Bed of Amber

    I live and work as a sound artist in Copenhagen, Denmark. My work can best be described as experimental soundscapes in collage form, where the radio as a medium, in terms of samples, concept and sound characteristics is featured extensively.

    https://samueladmartin.bandcamp.com

    7. Kala Pierson-Metallic Focusing

    Metallic Focusing is a concert version of audio I made for installation in an exhibit of metal artifacts at the Naughton Gallery of Queens University Belfast. Structured in four long arcs of sound, over the course of five minutes, the piece is made from layers of minimally processed piano-interior sounds (scraping, bowing, tapping, and dragging wooden objects along piano strings).

    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. With deep interests in non-western musics, she’s initiated many cross-cultural projects.

    8. Marco Dibeltulu – Microclima III

    The piece was commissioned by the Amici della Musica di Cagliari that wants to keep the identity sound of Sardinia, by recording the sounds of the “Festa di Sant’Efisio”, the most important religious procession on the island. This work is dedicated to “Traccas”, carts decorated with work tools in the fields and typical products of Sardinian gastronomy, pulled by oxen and with on board men, women and children dressed in traditional clothes that sing the typical religious melodies. The piece let the listener to live the experience of the feast only through the sounds.

    Marco Dibeltulu studied at the Conservatory of Cagliari Composition and Electronic
    Music (with Francesco Giomi, Sylviane Sapir and Elio Martusciello). His compositions have been selected in many competitions as 24th International Electronic Music Competition “Luigi Russolo” – Varese; CALL 2006 and 2013 – Federazione CEMAT, Rome; 6th International Computer Music Competition “Pierre Schaeffer” 2007 (1st Prize) – Pescara; ICMC 2012
    – Ljubljana; EMUFest 2012 – Rome; NYCEMF 2014, 2015 – New York City. He performed at Festivals: Synthèse – Bourges; Zeppelin 2008 – Barcelona; Audio Art Circus 2008 – Osaka; 60×60 Dance – Theatre Square, London; 60×60 Video – Audiograft – Oxford Brookes
    University; Urban soundscapes – Vienna.

    We are Archivosonoro (Soundarchive) from Chiapas, Mexico. The team are Gabriela Guadalupe Barrios García and Carlos Emilio Ruiz Llaven. Las latas de Don Renato (Don Renato’s Thin Cans), is about short stories (1 minute long) tell told only with sounds, no talk, no spoken word in any language.

    Phaune Radio – Tiny Tunes – metamorphoses: starfish

    Duality is always secretly unity. ― Alan Watts

    Because all the stars are not in the sky, some are to be found at all depths of the oceans. First, diaphanous larva at the mercy of the currents, our starfish soon begins to decant to the ocean floor, until it hits bottom. Once there, she begins her metamorphosis into a juvenile star. That is to say that a second body, literally, grows up inside, to reach maturity. A new symmetrical form, with 5 arms, of a different phylum, then exists simultaneously inside the larva. The starfish eventually extricate itself to become the cloning and regeneration renowned specialist, while the larva continues to graze algae and navigate quietly on the abyssal plain. Drifting products and vertigo of a life in two parallel bodies, in 6 minutes flat. On this stage, everything is possible.

    Phaune Radio is an ever-expanding world of homemade sound creations. Around here, we tickle your imagination. Around here, things that cannot be possibly taken seriously can still give food for thought. Around here, that’s up to your ears. Every month, it’s also a podcast that is produced for you and the curious waves of more than a dozen radios.

    Pheobe riley Law – territory

    during the ‘murmuration’ trip to Scotland in 2018 I put some microphones on the roof of the house we were staying in and recorded this battle between two nesting birds. I think about territories – real and perceived and how the act of sound recording other species steps into territories (of other species and our definitions).

    Pheobe riley Law

    currently based in Newcastle and Hull, my work often explores the documentation and transformation of materials including sound, text, film and reformatted objects. I am interested in reframing and dismantling narrative, subverting perceived normalities alongside the construction of personal or social behaviours and the inherent patterns of experience.
    recent work includes improvised and graphic / text score based performances at Ftarri (Tokyo) , BBC radio 3, Fort Process Festival and film at Paradise Air (Japan), Fuse Art Space, Cafe Oto & the Coachhouse (Brighton)

    Raquel Stolf – News list [dream and reality]

    A fragment of a collection of news headlines and subheadings from newspapers and magazines collected since 2011. These appropriated texts indicate relations between humans and other animals, involving sinuous relations between fiction and fact. I’m interested in the absurdity (and the humor) of the announcements, as well as making visible/audible the evident anthropocentrism of some of the news. This sound version of the work was presented for the first time in the exhibition LostandFound: Imagining new worlds, curated by Raphael Fonseca at the Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore, LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore, in 2019.

    Artist and professor in the Department of Visual Arts and in Post-Graduation Program of Visual Arts, Universidade do Estado de Santa Catarina, Brazil. Doctor (2011) and Master (2002) in Visual Arts at the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul. Recent exhibitions include: Lost and Found: Imagining new worlds (Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore, LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore, 2019), biblioteca: floresta (Museu de Arte de Ribeirão Preto, Brazil, 2018), IN-SONORA 10 ­ Muestra Internacional de Arte Sonoro e Interactivo (La Casa Encendida, Madri, Spain, 2018). She has been researching intersections among concepts of silence, writing processes and listening situations in the production of propositions which can be unfolded in installations, actions, interventions, videos, photos, texts and drawings.

    “Strange things stumble through the mirrors, they pulled a clock out of the river – it was oblivious. I loved those sisters; my shirt is stained with tears. At the factory, the Witches run the lathes. Ex-detectives loiter, not knowing who they are. Lacking time travel mechanisms, they attend funerals and take notes. No one notices. They are invisible. The characters converge upon a point in space.
    The house.
    Where it all started.
    The birth of it.
    The birth of them.

    The beginning.”

  • Todd Anderson Kunert - Almost There

    19th May 2019  12:40 pm - 1:00 pm

    programme/artist information

    Almost there. was constructed using vibrators that are sonically controlled and some very trusting contributors. Over two years, these contributors recorded their voices, while masturbating with the vibrators. The audio they were using was composed by myself specifically for this project. Ten participants were included in the project, with a mix of genders and sexual identities. The vibrators pulse in time with the sounds that are being sent to them. The participants made sounds in response to, and in time with, the sounds being heard. These ten recordings were then synchronized to the original composition, and mixed back into it.

    Todd Anderson-Kunert’s practice functions across performance, releases, and installations. Common to all is the use of electronic sound, focussing on timbre, frequency and emotion. He enjoys intensities, as much as he enjoys silence. He is currently based in Australia.

    1. Peter Hawkey – Beneath master

    What begins as a C major chord twists unexpectedly as tones from the harmonic series are randomly selected and used to create new triads. The order of the chords was decided with a 12 sided die, however the voicings of the chords was up to the composer to allow a balance between chance and order.

    Peter Hawkey is a guitarist and composer who works with many styles of music. Although beginning his musical career as a rock musician, Peter has recently finished his second classical guitar album. Various pieces of his music have been played on several radio stations in the UK; performed in New York and Boston; and used by a UK sporting venue.

    2. Expose Your Eyes – Picked It Up In The Middle Of The Night

    Paul Harrison – been playing around with noises since the mid-1980s since I started making my own experimental films & creating soundtracks – decided that the noises themselves created their own images so focussed more on just the sounds from about 1988/89 onwards. I started the project EXPOSE YOUR EYES sometime in the early 1990s – mostly solo, but also working with lots of other people from time to time – see Soundcloud for list of people:

    Toni Dimitrov a multimedia artist, cultural explorer, radio activist working in the field of radio and media for 20 years, philosopher and communicologist, poet and mountain climber, but also sound designer, graphic designer, dj, organizer, label owner, based in Skopje, Macedonia. He is doing various projects related to sound/art, radio, field recordings, he is curating the label post global and various sound/art events.His radio programs broadcasts on music radio Kanal 103 and are dedicated to contemporary electronic music, soundscape, field recordings but also discussing various socio/cultural topics. At the moment working on projects related to political analysis of media.

    4. Jenna Collins – We Are The Road

    In 1987, Stewart Brand wrote an evangelical account of the MIT Media Lab in which he asserted, ‘If you are not part of the steamroller, you are part of the road’. In this brutal formulation, the producers of technologies (the steamroller) are active and the consumers (the road) are passive. ‘We Are the Road’ considers the position of the viewer and occupies the space of ‘the road’ through a series of sequences; imaginative expansions of situations in which filmmaking and its spaces, activities and histories register as a defining presence; and of electrical and computer industry archival materials that relate to moving image and recording technologies, accumulating into a collage of unreliable recollections.

    5. Mark Vernon – Stimulus Progression Program

    6. Robert McClure -Failing_to_Resist

    It was my wife who pointed out to me that I tend to fidget with objects for long periods of time. Feeling, manipulating, figuring them out as if touch were the only sense available to me. The resulting sounds tend to annoy her after some time. It was this vice that became the germ for this piece. Sound sources include a bicycle, foam, paper, metal water canteen, bicycle helmet, a lamp, and my wedding ring taped on a number of different surfaces.

    Robert McClure’s music attempts to discover beauty in unconventional places using non-traditional means. His work has been featured at festivals including NYCEMF, Beijing Modern Music Festival, ISCM, TIES, SEAMUS, and ICMC. His works may be found through ADJ•ective New Music LLC, Bachovich Music Publications, Resolute Music Publications, and Tapspace Publications as well as on the ABLAZE and Albany Record labels. Robert received his doctorate from Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music. Robert has previously held positions at the Shanghai Conservatory of Music and Soochow University in Suzhou, China. He serves as Assistant Professor of Composition/Theory at Ohio University.

    7. Elina Bry – Stand By Me

    You might have seen her using her heartbeat as a tempo. This time no beat but hazard breaking through these overheard words.

    Elina Bry is a Glasgow based multidisciplinary and collaborator who considered herself as French/Finnish both equally. Communication is an essential part of her practice as each medium and language has its own strength. She sees language as a medium and by recognizing different self’s in her three languages, she makes the most of them. She is currently exploring the weakness of her body as a medium, considering the inner as a tool, and is finally coming out of the closet as a musician.

    8. Rowan Crerar – before and now

    Using field recordings of ambient, liminal spaces this piece encourages the consideration of silence as an element of sound. Using basic looping the piece traps a listener in a cycle of sounds, close to silence and simultaneously deafeningly loud – incorporating ideas of dead air, active listening, and soundscapes modern and traditional. The piece was created to be played through the medium of broadcast – to incorporate the ambient sounds that also surround a listener as they listen to the piece; a clock ticking next to them or the wind outside immerses itself into the noises of another time and place.

    Rowan Crerar is a 3rd year student at Edinburgh College of Art, studying Intermedia. Her practice centres in the ambience of city spaces and she works mainly in audio and video. She runs a show on Freshair.org.uk, and considers the idea of broadcast an integral part of her developing practice.

    9. Vincent Eoppolo – The Metamorphosis

    2 track fixed media acousmatic music composition realized in 2018. Created using various techniques and technologies such as analogue modular, FM and granular synthesis as well as field recordings. Recorded in my studio Eclisse.

    My compositions are a synthesis of various sound art traditions such as musique concrete, acousmatic music, electro-acoustic music and radio art. My works have been presented at the New York City Electro-Acoustic Music Festival, the Bushwick Open Studio Festival in Brooklyn and at Utopie Sonore in Torcé-en-Vallée, France. Several compositions have been featured on RTE’s Lyric FM in Ireland, on Radiophrenia in Glasgow, Phaune Radio from Montpellier, France as well as Radio Art International and Passport International on CHOQ Radio in Montreal, Canada. Additionally, my work has been included in Stephane Marin’s Espaces Sonores release “North American PhoNographic Mornings”.

  • OOR Scintilla - Jumbled Airs #1 live in the studio

    19th May 2019  2:00 pm - 2:30 pm

    programme/artist information

    Jumbled Airs #1 is a new sound work synthesising wind, water, ecstatic pylons, breathy bodily systems, broken narrations, bowed objects and DIY aeolian harps into a transient song of confused communicative air currents. Inspired by the distanced intimacies of radio transmission, as well as its underlying potentials for disturbance/resistance, destabilized acts of breathing, speaking, addressing and sounding are combined with the physical resonance of objects and elements to point towards a reclaiming of the materialities of sonic exchange based in transient bodies, thoughts, gestures and places.

    OOR_Scintilla (Louisa Love & Clive McLachlan Powell) are a recently formed Edinburgh-based collaborative artist duo working experimentally across sound, music, performance and installation practices. Combining our interests in the material poetics of sound, voice and place, we together produce sound works, site-responsive installations and informal performances which consider interactions between aural and material culture. Our
    process emphasises material directness alongside linguistic obscurity, engaging with objects, voice and environments in improvisational ways that resonate hybrid and uncertain conditions, slipping between the digital and the organic, the embodied and disembodied, the placed and displaced.

    this piece includes field recordings made in street markets in Berlin, Sao Paulo, Catania (Sicily), Pekin and Tel-Aviv. The composition process focused mainly on the deconstruction and re-arrangement of the many vocal utterances produced by the stallholders. This kaleidoscopic conglomeration of stallholders voices gave birth to a fictional street market that is beyond the reality found in the original recordings. The work title refers to the music style and technique that inspired both the concept of this piece and the main approach used for the treatment of the sound materials.

    Mario Verandi is an argentinean born composer and sound artist. He studied music in Argentina and in Barcelona. He continued his studies at the University of Birmingham (UK) where he completed a doctorate in electroacoustic music composition, In 2000 he moved to Berlin as a guest of the Artists-in Berlin program of the German Academic Exchange Service. Verandis´works include electroacoustic pieces, sound and video installations, live sound performances as well as radio art pieces. He was artist-in-residence at La Muse en Circuit (France), the Césaré Studio (France), TU-Studios Berlin, ZKM (Germany) and Cuenca

    Electroacoustic Studios (Spain).

    Aoi Swimming – I lost my baby teeth

    This song is a result of the “teeth” themed workshop with children from elementary school of Taiwan, during the artist in residence at Soulangh Artist Village in 2016. The reason why Aoi has chosen the “teeth” theme is that the Soulangh warehouse was used for storing sugar in a history and the sugar is associated with bad teeth. Aoi has taken ideas of children’s lyrics into the original song.Aoi sings a song in chinese, and the meaning of lyric is that children say goodbye to the lost teeth and want to put fruits, ice cream and beans into gum.

    Aoi Swimming is an idiosyncratic singer-songwriter and performance artist playing toy keyboards. With a pinpoint power and a huge sense of humor she places socio-political critique in the minds of listeners. One of her track is showing as a part of sound installation of Mischa Kuball “res•o•nant” at Jewish Museum in Berlin. For London Design Festival in 2015, her track was selected for the “Listening room” at Vitsoe in Central London, curated by The WIRE. Recent Live Performance include; Mousonturm in Frankfurt, 182 Art Space in Tainan, Bürgerhaus Glockenbachwerkstatt in Munich, and TA LÄRM” Poelzig Areal in Chemnitz.

  • NRRF B Radio - The Forbidden Planet Awakens: The Refrain

    19th May 2019  4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

    programme/artist information

    This episode of NRRF B Radio finds our fearless space pirates in a real pickle. The Snow Pod used to Escape to Snowland has melted upon launch due to a bad calculation involving a floating point decimal number. As the pirates fall back to the surface of the Forbidden Planet, they notice what appear to be creatures resembling marshmallows playing musical instruments. While falling, they speculate on what this strange music might sound like and use their space radios to see if there are any readable frequencies. Will the pirates be able to tune in? Will they land softly?

    NRRF B Radio is a collaborative effort to make unlicensed neighborhood radio art and manifests as a series of radio shows mashing b-list genres with radio art. Each B Radio episode features a theme to structure the improvisational nature of the shows, though tangents are frequent and encouraged. The performers sample wildly, speculate broadly, and even sometimes sing. This 2019 international iteration features a core group of noisemakers consisting of Jonny Farrow, Anna Friz, Steve Germana, Jeff Kolar, Jessica Speer, and Peter Speer. Earlier projects include a series of unlicensed low power FM broadcasts from Chicago and beyond (2012-14).

    “Strange things stumble through the mirrors, they pulled a clock out of the river – it was oblivious. I loved those sisters; my shirt is stained with tears. At the factory, the Witches run the lathes. Ex-detectives loiter, not knowing who they are. Lacking time travel mechanisms, they attend funerals and take notes. No one notices. They are invisible. The characters converge upon a point in space.
    The house.
    Where it all started.
    The birth of it.
    The birth of them.

    The beginning.”

  • Ashleigh Fisk & Adam Paroussos - Smokey

    19th May 2019  6:40 pm - 7:00 pm

    programme/artist information

    After centuries of submersion ‘Smokey’ emerges onto the foreshore to communicate with us through sounds he has collected from past peoples. Characterising the sounds and histories of London using the earth and artefacts born from it. The sound piece combines river Thames foreshore field recordings with ceramic costume (constructed using porcelain smoking pipes dating between the late 1500 to late 1800s), Ceramic whistle/ocarina (made form river band thames clay), a wooden bull roarer or wind wand (modelled from European palaeolithic/Mesolithic examples), whirly wands and thunder drums.

    Ashleigh Fisk is a multimedia artist currently investigating the use of ceramics to create sound and instruments, much of her inspiration steaming from ceramic artefacts found while Mudlarking on the Thames foreshore. Her work concerns the ‘All Man’, revealing the universal experience of inhabiting a body; both inanimate and animate.

    3. Mark Hume & Bruce McClure – Joshua Free

    George Albaster is a concept. He is a 1980s teen avant-garde turned mainstream horror movie star from Fenwick, Ayr. George catapulted into the mainstream after appearing in the 80s/90s hit trilogy “Atheist Cop”, famous for its controversy surrounding holy war. Excessive drug use and failed rehabilitation attempts ensued. Before he knew it he was watching Marlon Brando’s daughter throw herself from the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. Following a 4 year disappearance, he returned to write and direct the acclaimed Netflix TV series “People of the Canyons”, now in its seventh season. The interview that Radiophrenia aired last year contained George’s confession of “The Lost Years” – a self inflicted hiatus spent away from the media limelight, during which George fell within himself, tackling his own demons whilst recording his thoughts. These are some of those recordings, against a backdrop of the droning noise George’s own mind reverberates in an infinite-delay feedback loop.

    George Alabaster was imagined by long standing friends Bruce McClure (District Nurse, Seed Records) and Mark Hume (Autocrat, Mark Zoom). The chain of thought prose was recorded in early 2019 near Joshua Tree, California where Bruce spent time with Bill Pulman’s daughter. The remainder of George’s thoughts will be contained in a free cassette, sellotaped to the comic book series of Atheist Cop (created by independent artist Doktor Geraldo (Comixcentral)).

    4. Lorenzo Cimino – addio copia

    Lorenzo Cimino is an Italian trumpet player and composer. He has taught at the University of Pisa , Conservatory of Bologna, Istituto Boccherini Lucca.He made numerous recordings on behalf of Rai and won the audition for the first trumpet in the orchestra of the Fermo Festival.

    A live improvised set between between Stephanie Merchak and Nour Sokhon in collaboration with Nicole Farah. “Transformation Through Chaos II” invites the audience to lose their inhibitions and self reflect on their personal experiences with disorder within the age of disinformation/ information overload. Sound and body are used as vehicles, encouraging the crowd to converse with their innerselves.

    Sound: Stephanie Merchak and Nour Sokhon Body: Nicole Farah

    Nour Sokhon is a Lebanese artist, sound designer and filmmaker based in Beirut, Lebanon. Her creative explorations have been in the form of sound performances, installations and moving images. In 2017 she culminated a large scale Masters project; a documentary entitled “People on Sound”, during her time at the Glasgow School of Art in the United Kingdom. “Revisiting: Hold Your Breath” is her most recent moving image piece, which recently won the Emerging Artist Prize at the Sursock Museum as a part of the 33rd Salon d’Automne at the Sursock Museum.

  • David Schafer - Pink & Blue

    19th May 2019  10:30 pm - 11:00 pm

    programme/artist information

    Pink and Blue is composed of a recorded interview that was conducted with Angela Davis in 1971. The voice of the interviewer was removed, leaving only the responses by Angela Davis. These responses were processed with a delay effect. This act of removing created gaps that were replaced with five seconds of pink noise, a random noise having equal energy per octave. The word pink also references Baker-Miller Pink that was used in prisons in the 70’s, to control and oppress inmates. Interweaving within these tracks are processed samples from, “Grinnin’ in Your Face”, a blues song by Son House.

    David Schafer is an artist who works with audio, installation, sculpture, performance, and works on paper. Often originating from literary, historical, or theoretical sources, his interventions are driven by an interest in cultural memory, and the structures of language and built space. Schafer has performed at a variety of venues including Human Resources, Silent Barn, Roulette, Invisible Dog, The Whitney Museum of American Art, and has been included in curated radio programs in Lisbon, Paris, and Berlin.

  • David Duncan - Further Observations on Rotating Ap Stars

    19th May 2019  11:00 pm - 12:00 am

    programme/artist information

    The material for this piece comes from a sonic analysis of the variable star HR 1217, using a technique where the changes in the light spectrum of an object recorded over a period of time can be translated into sound by raising the frequencies up to the range of human hearing. The slow changes in colour and consonance focus the listener constantly on the foreground, in the “mysterious power of the infinitesimal” (Eliane Radigue).

    David Thomas Duncan is a composer and pianist, currently working at the London College of Music. He is interested in repetition and memory.
