  • Chelidon Frame - Flatline Voyages
    21 August 2023  1:00 am - 2:00 am

    description

    Flatline Voyages is a sound project that explores the relationships between drone music, radiointerference, and short-wave transmissions. It combines a series of SDR recordings from all over the world (number stations, Chinese traditional music, beacons, radio hams…), drones, and sounds gathered from fellow musicians(Andrea Marinelli, Asymmetric Cut, and A Distant Shore), coalescing them in a slowly evolving artificial soundscape.

    It was conceived as a series of extended listenings I made during lockdowns, navigating the SW spectrum from my studio where the aural component was partially deprived of its information content and became a means to explore the world.

    Chelidon Frame is an experimental electronicmusic project that mainly works with field recordings, radio interferences,guitars, and processed sounds.

    His installations are experience-based and suggest a dialogue between the location (both virtual andphysical) and the sounds proposed, aiming to deliver a message in the simpler yet most effective way. The use of code, data analysis, and data-driven sounds, allow information to be experienced anew.

    In his studio works and live sets, different layers of sounds – guitars, synthesizers, and custom-made instruments- pile up creating unexpected new soundscapes. He is the founder of the Asynchronous Drone Orchestra.

  • Absolute Value of Noise and Anna Friz - Morse Mountain
    21 August 2023  3:00 am - 7:00 am

    description
    The mountain sleeps; dreams stone. Festooned with power lines and communications towers, striated by long-ago meltwater and creeks that have since evaporated, blown bald by the prevailing winds. Some day, come earthrise or landfall, the mountain will walk out into the sea. Until then, micro-movements in the sediment and rock are its uneasy speech, while the antennae atop its massive breathing shoulders continue to call and respond.

    The piece is inspired by coastal mountains that have been implicated in human long distance communications and listening, whether occupied by overland telephone and telegraph cables, military monitoring stations, radio and acoustic beacons for ships and airplanes, or 5G cell towers. Morse Mountain considers the ephemeral human occupations of signal space as they overlay mineral durations; fireflies buzzing around ancient beings that have merely paused to rest.

    Anna Friz and Absolute Value of Noise (Peter Courtemanche) are Canadian sound and radio artists. Anna Friz creates self-reflexive radio for broadcast, installation and performance. Her compositions reflect upon public media culture, environment and infrastructure (human and extra-human, acoustic, and electro-magnetic), time perception, and speculative fiction. Absolute Value of Noise creates radio and outdoor installations. He likes to work with “gadgetry” – custom turntables, lamp filaments, wire coils, high voltage ionizers, magnetic transceivers, and “little electronic brains” that observe and respond to local phenomena. His outdoor works are a comment on bio-diversity, extinction, and fragility.

  • Darren Copeland - Absent Near Dawn
    21 August 2023  7:30 am - 8:00 am

    description
    This piece is from the “The Absent Listener” series, which are pieces derived from continuous and unsupervised soundscape recordings made on a 14-acre rural residential property located 40 km from the northwestern edge of Algonquin Park in Ontario, Canada. The recordings used in “Absent Near Dawn” all happened within one hour before or after daybreak. They are arranged in a chronological sequence starting in December 2021 and ending in June 2022. “Absent Near Dawn” was produced in April 2023 for the Ear Sound Scape VII series in Copenhagen and Malmö.

    (1) farmer wadams – Prime Time

    An experiment to create music from rhythms based on prime numbers, with sounds created by rulers pining off desks, thumb tapping, and a message from my drunken teenage son. 

    I have worked in animation for the past 25 years – currently Creative Director at Wild Child Animation, Stirling. I started out in club visuals and live AV performances, as part of a collective called Pointless Creations, and have always wanted to go back and make music of my own. Struggling to find time to learn music software, I decided to use Resolve, video editing software with which I was already familiar. So earlier this year I made my first track ill in bed with covid, which reflects the semi-delirious state I was in at the time.

    (2) Jeff Gburek & John Palumbo – Omnivorous Fame Beast 

    Omnivorous Fame Beast is the third of a series of poems written spontaneously and recited in the field. Fusing automatic writing, spoken word, and outdoor environments, one could say it’s a form of journalism where the human is slightly off-center. The focus of this piece is upon the social media environment of self-absorption and self-promotion. This piece departs from the previous formats and allows for a trans-continental collaboration of Jeff Gburek in Poznan, Poland with drummer John Palumbo in New Jersey, USA . Segments of percussion were relayed over an internet audio interface in something like real time. Jeff and John record together also under the project name EXTREMOPHILES.  

    Jeff Gburek is a poet, sound-artist, musician & traveller currently based in Poznan, Poland. Jeff Gburek has bandcamp, soundcloud sites. His blog can be searched either by using his name, spelled G-B-U-R-E-K or by typing in Transparent Abelard.

    (3) Selestra – Dispatches from Radiotopia- Hamburg Rehearsal – 01 13730- What Happened to Radio Austria International? 

    Recorded during the first rehearsal of RADIOTOPIA, these tracks guide shortwave frequencies into a portable modular system for signal transmutation. Understanding or decoding is not the point, but rather these signals act like any other voltage in the system: one to be manipulated, one that can travel through the wires to modulate another parameter. Paired with algorithmic generation of melodies, the tracks manifest a merging of generated and captured voltages from around the world. More information can be found here: https://selestra.bandcamp.com/album/dispatches-from-radiotopia-hamburg-rehearsal .

    Selestra is a moniker of Adriana Knouf, PhD (NL/US), who works as an artist, writer, and xenologist, focusing on topics such as wet media, space art, and queer and trans futurities. She is the Founding Facilitator of the tranxxenolab, a nomadic artistic research laboratory that promotes entanglements among entities trans and xeno.

    (4) Wulf Steel – Ache 

    An excerpt from the collection of poems Fallen. The full collection is yet to be completed but continues to ferment and grow. The excerpt here contains the poems Observing, Holding on, Downfall, Consequence and Ache which are grouped together in the collection.

    Always been a writer and always wanting to get work out there. A lover of performance, and someone who likes to think.

    (5) Camille Hummel – Cloud and Garble 

    For the time of closing eyes, let’s dream about the collapse of light pollution, freeing animals of the night.

    Camille Hummel is a young french sound artist, working on ecology and societal topics. She likes to use sounds as tiny pieces of paper, trying to mix up everything, words, voices, fieldrecording, and sound-design to express herself. Besides, she does documentaries and writes stories for TV and video games.  https://camillehummel.com/

    (6) Vincent Eoppolo – Ritual 

    Vincent Eoppolo (Ioppolo) is an American composer from Wilmington, Delaware. Initially trained as both a Classical and Jazz guitarist, Eoppolo began composing and recording electronic music in the early 1980’s shortly after the development of MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) and the introduction of affordable home computers and recording equipment. During the 1980-90’s Eoppolo’s fixed media compositions were regularly featured on university new music radio programs in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania region. Additionally, Eoppolo’s works received recognition in music publications Keyboard Magazine and Computer Music Journal. In recent years, Eoppolo’s fixed media works have been presented at the New York City Electro-Acoustic Music Festival, Mise_En Place New Music Festival in Brooklyn, Utopie Sonore in Nantes, France and De Natura Sonorum in Rome, Italy. Eoppolo’s compositions have been released by Moscow based independent music label Meticulous Midgets and his works are regularly featured on new music radio and internet programs throughout Europe and North America.

    (7) Hannah Kemp-Welch – Searching for Sferics 

    Sferics are Earth’s natural static – bursts of radio waves emitted by lightning. They take the form of very low frequency (VLF) radio waves, which travel thousands of miles between the ground and ionosphere. A VLF receiver allows you to hear sferics at any time; lightning strikes around the world approximately 44 times per second. This piece records my process as I build a simple VLF radio receiver from copper wire and a hula hoop (using a recipe by Dan Tapper) and hike around Cumbria listening for lightening. This project was supported by Full of Noises and Arts Council England.

    Hannah Kemp-Welch is a sound artist with a socially-engaged practice – she makes art collaboratively and in community settings, experiments with DIY radios, and produces zines to make these technologies accessible. 
           
    (8) Nacho Cordoba Delgado – This Tape Machine Destroys Time 02 Side B 

    TTMDT is a collection series made from January to December 2012. One tape/digital release per month out on MAGIA. The first 6 were created by MAGIA founder Ignacio Córdoba. All the releases focus on tapes, tape machines and machines as destroyers of time, of perception and of the perception of time. Samples, coding, looping, hacking, field recording, plunderphonics and improvisation share the detritus of Time.

    (9) Ariel Mioduser – Medusa 

    A hypnotic and meditative journey, made of a very slow harmonic progression. At a certain point, a far away melody is heard as if waking up, until a sudden burst calls back from the trance-like state.

    I am a media artist focusing on sound art, animation, and digital painting. Along the years my sound works have evolved from the use of field recordings and electronic instruments to being mainly based on my voice in a broad sense, processed to the point where sometimes it is not recognizable as a human voice, but still carries the warmth and vibration of the original.

  • Alice Jackson - The Bridge Between Me And Sleep
    21 August 2023  9:00 am - 9:30 am

    description
    An intimate snapshot into the delicate and intense world of guiding a baby to sleep. Singing, soothing, shushing and white noise have all become essential sonic elements in our sleep ritual determining whether the wave will break furiously or glide calmly onto shore. We are all taught how to get to sleep, to trust the transition from waking to sleeping, from outside world to self created world and it is within this key liminal space that I spend a lot of my day.

    Alice Jackson is a mother and an artist who co-runs a small DIY space in West Yorkshire. She’s currently negotiating her art practice around new motherhood and running a business.

  • Marco Lampis - Before the Eyes: Turning Listeners into Spectators
    21 August 2023  10:00 am - 10:45 am

    description


    Before the Eyes is an art project that aims to make art more accessible to the visually impaired through the production ofsound descriptions of contemporary art exhibitions. The main objective is to facilitate inclusivity and enjoyment of art, so that people who see little or nothing can have a full and engaging experience. Its aim is to build a freeonline archive of sound catalogues, which allow the described exhibitions to ‘live’ for longer than their temporary nature. In this episode: Age of Coming, Matt Copson’s exhibition at Clearing Gallery Brussels. BtE is supported by the Ligue Braille Belgium

    Marco Lampis, artist living in Brussels. He studied Belle Arti in Bologna and UDK in Berlin. Lampis has participated in workshops and residencies, including QO2 in Brussels and Gasworks International Program Residency. His artistic research centers on human perception of reality, especially the relationship between sound and image. Lampis explores this theme through various means like performative actions, workshops, music productions, and sculptures. He employs a method of excluding one element to delve deeper into understanding the other, like visually analyzing sound or examining visual perception acoustically. He also has a Consumer Waste Record release entitled Object Shape Description.

  • Jeanne Debarsy - Maybe Nothing
    21 August 2023  10:45 am - 11:00 am

    description

    Sound compositions made by the artists invited for the 4th edition of SONICFUTURE RESIDENCIES organized by SEMI SILENT, and that took place in the village Port Cetate, Romania, on the border of the Danube, in September 2022.

    Artists: Jeanne Debarsy(BE), Veronika Svobodova (CZ), Lloyd Dunn (US/CZ), pablo sanz (ES), JasminaAl-Qaisi (RO), Sillyconductor (RO)

    Artistic director: Anamaria Pravicencu

    http://semisilent.ro

    What happened?

    We don’t know exactly

    Of course, there are rumors and echoes

    But they are perhaps only reminiscences

    Time and space seem out of tune

    Behaviors have also changed

    But still, the Danube doesn’t stop flowing.

    With this piece, the author wanted to translate a precise feeling that cradled the 10-day residency in the small village of Port Cetate, in Romania: a strange feeling of the end of the world, with a historically low water level that prevented navigation on the Danube, a very prevalent animal kingdom, few humans, the impression of evolving either in the past or in the future but certainly not in the present.

    Sound piece composed with recordings made during Sonic Futures Residencies in Port Cetate (Romania), a program by SEMI SILENT, co-produced by Babelfish.

    Jeanne Debarsy is a sound artist based in Belgium where she studied to become a sound engineer. She worksi n various domains of sound and collaborates with many artists in cinema, radio, music, and various arts. She is particularly passionate about radio media because it gives her freedom of action and expression precious to her eyes. She continues to develop her own sound language to refine her personal research and to explore the fields of performance and installation.

  • Aurélie Nyirabikali Lierman - Just Outside the Wombskin & iota mikro
    21 August 2023  11:00 am - 11:30 am

    description

    Aurélie Nyirabikali Lierman

    Just Outside the Wombskin

    ‘Just Outside the Wombskin’ is an ode to Aurélie Nyirabikali Lierman’s ancestral land in general as well to her grandfathers incredible legacy and age in particular. Lierman’s super-centenarian grandfather – Kanyoni Ladislas – just turned 109 at the beginning of 2019. He lives on volcano Mt. Karisimbi in the Virunga Mountains in Rwanda and perhaps is one of the last pre-colonial traditional hunters and medicine. Lierman visits him as often as possible to record their ongoing conversations about his past, and collect these for her ever growing archive called Africa On Tape. All sounds heard are purely based on recent field recordings from her grandfather’s house and village.

    iota mikro

    Build up like a dream sequence iota mikro invites us into an intimate and introspective journey by evoking imaginary memories from Aurélie Nyirabikali Lierman’s very early childhood years. iotamikro is an artistic reflection on Lierman’s double identity, Belgian and Rwandan, revealing her experiences of the two different realities. All sounds heard are purely based on recent field recordings from Lierman’s birthplace at the Karisimbi volcano in Rwanda. Since her real paper birth certificate is missing, this is Lierman’s sonic birth certificate.

    iota mikro is dedicated to her Rwandan Belgian godchild: Jerom Dom.

    Biography

    Aurélie Nyirabikali Lierman is a Belgian-Rwandan composer, radio and vocal artist. Pioneer of Afro-European radio art and musical theatre. Her work has been described as bold, provocative and delicate.

    She brings unique stories to life in an accessible and at the same time innovative way: based on acoustic sounds and soundscapes that she moves around like a kind of 3D cinema, but for the ears. She records all the sound recordings in her work herself during her many field recording expeditions to East-Africa.

    Just this year she created Umva! an intimate ode to Kanyoni Ladislas, her 113-year-old grandfather and one of the last traditional doctors and hunters in Rwanda.

    She collaborates with other artists in a variety of disciplines and fields and has won many prizes at home and abroad.

    Sounds of thinning ice emerge from cracks spreading in a curving pattern. Winter guests from the Arctic arrive: long-tailed ducks call to each other. The piercing sounds of military jets provide a stark contrast to an ecosystem of co-operation and accommodation. Skipping stones turn the lake into a vibrating plate. Each impact creates a flexural/bending wave, radiating sound into the air, the short waves/high frequencies arriving first. These waves track the ice’s vanishing act, a harbinger of both the new season, and the seasons already lost, as climate shifts are written in the math of disappearance. Recorded on Lake Ontario in February 2022.

    Alëna Korolëva is an artist and curator, who works with sound, photo and video.
    Her sound work is focused on field recordings, acoustic ecology, soundscape studies and acousmatic composition. Her technique employes elements of documentary storytelling and experimental music.
    Based in Toronto, Canada.

    3) Andrea Oppo – Campu Perdu, a windproject

    This is an unmixed natural soundscape made in the suggestive Asinara Island. You can hear the wind like you are inside it. Like you are an abandoned prison, or an abandoned stall. You can also feel yourself like an animal, a special animal which lives here and gave the name at the island itself.. or like a prisoner, a free prisoner under the sky and hidden in the wind. Just go blind for this journey. This is a prison but a windy one.

    My name is Andrea Oppo, I live and work in Italy in cinema and documentary films as sound mixer and boom operator. I’m very interested in recording sound for documentaries.

     4) Meryll Hardt – Antenna 

    A short radio operetta composed with an electric piano and then orchestrated with a Farfisa and a mini moog (virtual).  Having both in mind Holger Hiller and Pierrot Lunaire of Arnold Schöneberg, 1910 and 1980, the dadas and the Neue Deutsch Welle, she decided  not to write her own lyrics but rather continue the reappropriating and revisit Antenna’s lyrics from Kraftwerk in a quite a psyche lofi different direction from the original.  

    Meryll Hardt  (Fr, 1984) learned music and radioplay mainly with her friends from Gagarin Records, Felix Kubin and Mark Vernon. She also went to art school, graduating in visual and performance art. In 2013, she directed a short musical docu-fiction film featuring herself at Le Corbusier’s Cité Radieuse in Marseille. Passionate about science-fiction, architecture and history, she’s also a big fan of Star Trek.

  • Action Pyramid - Plant Playback
    21 August 2023  12:00 pm - 12:30 pm

    description
    The sounds of aquatic plant photosynthesis interpreted. Taking inspiration from the mixtape format, where versioning and remixing are common tropes, Plant Playback presents sections of subaquatic source material, each initially in a raw unprocessed state, followed by sonic diversions exploring the inherent rhythmic and harmonic properties of these sounds. Interview excerpts with researchers specialising in freshwater bioacoustics, as well as computer-processed interpretations of the sonic data, such as audio-to-MIDI capture, further illustrate a personal quest to understand and appreciate the complexity and strange unknowable nature of these sounds. With special thanks to acoustic ecologists Camille Desjonquères, Gea van de Lee, and Jack Greenhalgh for their time and expertise on the subject.   A list of the sound sources for ‘Plant Playback’ can be found on our website at radiophrenia.scot/artist/commissions/action-pyramid Tom Fisher is a sound artist and musician based in the marshy edge-lands of North East London. Working primarily under the name Action Pyramid his projects vary from site-specific sound installation and headphone based works for galleries and museums, to experimental radio works, music and documentary. With a background in electronic music and audio production his creative practice involves using sound and composition to re-examine and reconsider our surroundings, looking at the relationship between ourselves and the nonhuman, and our part in the wider ecologies of landscapes. With a multitude of recording techniques, often aimed at exploring and re-interpreting the seemingly unnoticed and unheard elements of our surroundings, he looks to present compositional and spatial expressions of these acoustic phenomena in a way that attempts to offer up alternative perspectives regarding perceptions of scale, hierarchical bias and the interconnectedness of living things.

  • Alëna Korolëva - Accidental Wilderness
    21 August 2023  12:30 pm - 1:00 pm

    description
    This field recording-based composition grew from listening to the sounds of the ever-changing boundary between the city of Toronto and Lake Ontario. The waterfront is a transition zone where sounds of animals, plants, people, machines and water meet and overlap.
    The title refers to the transformation of a wasteland into new natural habitats. This happened in Toronto as wildlife reclaimed islands of construction garbage which had been dumped into the lake. Over the years the site became a lush green park, a home and meeting place for many different species.

    1 Thomas Ott – A Message From Beyond

    “A Message from Beyond” is an experimental seance created for radio. A recording of a Ghost Box forms the core of the soundscape, gently layered with deep soothing drones aimed at lulling the listener into a more receptive state of mind. A Ghost Box is a radio device which sweeps through different AM and FM frequencies, resulting in bursts of static, sounds and words. It is thought that discarnate entities, such as ghosts, can communicate by manipulating which words the scanner picks up. As you sink into this piece will there be a message from beyond waiting for you?

    Thomas Ott is an experimental musician, noise artist and drone merchant best known for his work with experimental metal bands Catafalque and Gnarl, and his Harsh Noise project The Dead Yesterdays. His solo drone work is a vehicle for developing and exploring his Pareidoliaic Method. Using field recordings as the basis for his drone pieces, the method calls for active listening and for subsequent layers to emphasise or accentuate sounds already existing in the piece, rather than imposing pre-conceived melodies, allowing for organic growth as more layers are added.

    2 Arturo Pacheco Manzano – OCOTOCHTLI(Bobcat)

    This production is inspired by a beautiful example of what can be called “coloniality of knowledge”: The understanding of the Mexican pre-Columbian world being colonized, in the name of the Spanish Crown, by the scientific systems of that time and explained by its Eurocentric and colonial expert knowledge… Five hundred years after the fall of Mexico-Tenochtitlan (August 13, 1521) we are still colonized. Decolonization will be endless, or it won’t be.

    Arturo Pacheco Manzano (Xochimilco, Mexico City, Mexico) Radialist, musician, psychologist from Mexico City. He has worked as a transcriber, musical arranger and instrumental performer in various cultural events in Mexico and other countries. Research psychologist and consultant, therapist, university teacher and school prefect. He has also collaborated since the time of the pandemic with cultural groups and in free and community radio production in different territories of the country and on the internet.

    5 Martha Riva Palacio Obón – khthonios – invocation

    Interspecies hymn built from the digital mix of crickets and human voice in different frequencies. Cthonic spirits that swarm in the compost, the underworld, and generate with their voices the cyclic rhythm of death-live. Microscopic transit, inefable precipitation of the matter that decomposes and germinates. Invocation: to bring back in sound a medieval bestiary; to recreate a fragmented, spectral testimony of those who once inhabited this wounded planet. Kthonios, from earth.

    Mexican sound artist and author. She studied a BA in Psychology and a MFA in Visual Arts and is member of the Sistema Nacional de Creadores de Arte. In 2019 she was granted the Otherwise Fellowship with her interdisciplinary project Following Crickets around the House and in 2022 was the resident artist in the project Grandmother’s chants: sonorities from the Colombian Caribbean hosted by Fundación Círculo Abierto in Barranquilla, Colombia. Her sound essays have been presented in spaces such as Tsonami, Sur Aural, Radiophrenia and soundpedro among others.

    6 Selestra – Dispatches from Radiotopia- Hamburg Rehearsal – 03 14550- Anti-Imperialist Dancing to STANAG

    Recorded during the first rehearsal of RADIOTOPIA, these tracks guide shortwave frequencies into a portable modular system for signal transmutation. Understanding or decoding is not the point, but rather these signals act like any other voltage in the system: one to be manipulated, one that can travel through the wires to modulate another parameter. Paired with algorithmic generation of melodies, the tracks manifest a merging of generated and captured voltages from around the world.  

    Selestra is a moniker of Adriana Knouf, PhD (NL/US), who works as an artist, writer, and xenologist, focusing on topics such as wet media, space art, and queer and trans futurities. She is the Founding Facilitator of the tranxxenolab, a nomadic artistic research laboratory that promotes entanglements among entities trans and xeno. Adriana regularly presents her artistic research around the world and beyond. Her work has been recognized by an Award of Distinction at Prix Ars Electronica (2021), an Honorary Mention from the Science Fiction Research Association’s Innovative Research Award, and as a prize winner in The Lake’s Works for Radio #4 (2020).

  • Manja Ristic - water memory - mnemosonic topographies of the Adriatic
    21 August 2023  2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

    description
    water memory – mnemosonic topographies of the Adriatic is a musical journey through the subtle relations of sound and aquatic habitats on the island of Korčula and its surrounding archipelago. from the heart of an ancient town to the island’s deepest wilderness, water memory contains a wide array of aquatic and sub-aquatic imprints captured with extended field recording techniques and gently placed in an emotionally charged 50-minute-long ambient composition.

    the music in this work is built around recordings of sound pollution below and above the water surface (due to increased water traffic, sand pumps used for “more ecological” beach filling, sounds of the sea bed covered with artificial gravel, over-concretization of the lime-stone coast), then, derelict archaeological sites, abandoned ex-Yugoslavian military sites, abandoned quarries spanning from Neolithic to Medieval times, some of which were still operating until the mid 20th century.


     
    with such a dense “memory field” to be observed both the author and the listeners are exposed to a dizzying amount of content that alludes to relations between the sociology of time and the politics of soundscape as a possible interdisciplinary framework for a better understanding of the memory of place.

    Manja Ristić is a violinist, sound artist, poet, curator and researcher active in the fields of electroacoustic and classical music, instrumental improvisation and experimental sound art. Her work blends intuitive composition and field recording practices while focusing on interdisciplinary approaches to acousmatic forms, radio art, and acoustic ecology. Manja Ristić currently works and lives on the island of Korčula, Croatia.

  • Robert Thomas James Mills - who's time? live in the studio
    21 August 2023  3:00 pm - 3:20 pm

    description
    What if time was a person? What is your relationship with them? What happens when you both fall out of love with each other? Sometimes time is seen as a stream, flowing from past to future. Mixing a stream of consciousness with a stream of transmissions picked up through the cosmos. Monologues, poems and songs all come together to the single point where we have to ask… who’s time?

    Robert Thomas James Mills was a time traveller from Glasgow. Masquerading as an artist, sometimes a poet. Through words, gestures, space and time Robert would navigate worlds they found themselves within. Sometimes approaching with curiosity. Sometimes approaching with criticism.

  • Teresa Cos - The Archive Of Loops: Broadcast
    21 August 2023  3:40 pm - 4:00 pm

    description
    Broadcast is a composition made out of fragments taken from unedited archived studio improvisations. It focuses on sampling and manipulating live public radio broadcasts, with pockets of music and news packages teased out of linear time and fed into loops, distortions and delays. Even the content of these extracts speaks to a preoccupation with the messiness of unfolding time: the flaring of intergenerational anxieties about mobile phone usage, the sadly cyclical nature of social progress, historical anthropology, nostalgia for the 90s, cartoon impunctuality and more. Looping both estranges and intensifies the meaning at the source (Jack Chuter).

    Teresa Cos is a moving image and sound composer based in London. Indebted forever to rhythmanalysis and depth psychology, their audiovisual works, performances, and scores map and disrupt culturally and historically fabricated notions of time, identity, memory and desire. Teresa has presented and performed their work in various international contexts including Cafè Oto, CCA Glasgow (Radiophrenia Festival), Iklectic, Q-O2, KBC-Belgrade, Argos Centre for Audiovisual Arts, Casino Luxembourg, WIELS Contemporary Art Centre, bb15, The Mac – Metropolitan Arts Centre Belfast and the 14th Venice International Architecture Biennial. They have released work on Takuroku/Cafè Oto, Hard Return and Umland Editions/Q-2.

  • Louis - Olivier Desmarais - Rainbow odyssey: The redemption
    21 August 2023  4:40 pm - 5:00 pm

    description
    Delirium of a Millennial, somewhere between the symphonic poem and the trailer for a B-movie. The result is a psychedelic journey, an epic odyssey where the lines between pleasure and pain, good and evil, light and dark, heaven and hell are blurred. Before starting to listen, don’t forget to fasten your seat belt and locate the nearest emergency exits. Above all, it is important to maintain full confidence in the captain’s conduct, even if it will be tempting to lose hope. May my sins be forgiven, may light shine in the darkness. Praise the Lord. Amen. Sound artist based in Montreal, Louis-Olivier likes to navigate between different creative playgrounds without, however, leaving the sound medium; be it radio, music or installations. Throughout his career, he has developed a strong interest in immersion by creating works where space acts as an artistic parameter in its own right. He is particularly interested in exploring the connections between music and spirituality. In 2019 he launched “Abbaye”, a contemplative audio documentary which, in 2022, became PAX, a multimedia installation with spatialized sound.   His work is recognized internationally (Phonurgia Nova, RTBF, Festival Longueur d’ondes de Brest, Bourse Gulliver).

  • Production 2 - Alëna Korolëva - Premonitions
    21 August 2023  6:00 pm - 6:30 pm

    description

    Whenever I go, I can’t help but notice signs of a looming change. I eavesdrop on conversations of creatures big and small, and like me, they seem uneasy and uncertain about what’s to come. Something is in the air, dark clouds gather, winds are shifting course. Amidst the confusion and restlessness, the voices of natural and human-made worlds blend in a worrisome symphony. This piece is an ode to anticipation, to the beauty of different forms of life on the brink of the sixth mass extinction. Joining in the chorus are the American toad, northern winds, an old kettle, mr. Cat, tawny owl, crickets, domestic chickens and pigs, trumpeter swans, honey bees, truck horns, cormorants, seagulls and other elements and critters.

    Alëna Korolëva is an artist and curator, who works with sound, photo and video.
    Her sound work is focused on field recordings, acoustic ecology, soundscape studies and acousmatic composition. Her technique employs elements of documentary storytelling and experimental music.
    Based in Toronto, Canada.

  • Northfield Lenox - Dry Erase Marker
    21 August 2023  9:00 pm - 9:30 pm

    description
    In the 1600’s the Catholic Church begins the inquisition of physicist and astronomer Galileo Galilei. Galileo was ordered to turn himself in to the Holy Office to begin trial for holding the belief that the Earth revolves around the sun. 400 years later, the use of dogma to persecute the innocent persists, while in some areas of the world, church attendance and affiliation is dropping. ‘Dry Erase Marker’ creates a recording of an apocryphal weekly service broadcast, in the manner of an audio whiteboard of samples and scribblings related to these themes. Northfield Lenox is a one-person project creating computer produced music with virtual instruments and samples from media archives, radio, and other field & audio recordings.

  • BYDL – paths yet to be defined
    21 August 2023  9:30 pm - 10:00 pm

    description
    The 25-minute piece »paths yet to be defined« was composed especially for the radiophrenia open call revolving around techniques and references regarding radio transmission, spoken word and found sound. The material ranges from SW radio noise with some audible programme voices now and then to found answering machine tapes, inadvertently recorded dictaphone ambience and found cassettes with children recording their playing in an undefined year of the past. The piece came together within a two hour session: one hour for recording, one hour for editing. Gear used: Koma Field Kit & Field Kit FX with Spring Reverb Tank attached, Field Kit’s CV Radio receiving noise and SW radio signal, EMF Sniffer built by Sturmherta, Wind Harp built by DvS equipped with a Piezo contact mic, Tape Player with Ping Pong Loop, Birdsong and Guitar open tape loop directed by hand while playing, and Construction Site Ambience on tape through Meng Qi Wingie (Mic Input to also capture the rooms atmosphere and clicks and noises occurring while improvising), Kosmische Synth App through Korg Monotron Delay (modded by FTS), Found Dictaphone Tape of a Doctor’s Answering Machine, Found Tape with two kids reenacting a driver’s license test, Boss RE-20, Piezo on mini speaker patched as Feedback Loop. The Viennese noise scrambler Sandro N. aka. BYDL moves in experimental sonic realms of Ambient, Drone, Techno and Noise. Essential driver of their work is improvisation, often in collaborative contexts utilizing digital and analog systems of chance. Electroacoustics, field recordings and everyday noises form the base for highly manipulated sound designs. Left-behind cassettes and Dictaphone tapes run ambiences and vocals for his productions, DJ mixes and live sets. BYDL already released on labels like Beach Buddies, Sama Recordings, Vienna Underground Traxx, Tongraeber, Ternär and performs solo and in numerous formations (paseule, Drug Searching Dogs, quellenverzeichnis, Ausgesprochen:Neu, KMØN,…). bydl.bandcamp.com soundcloud.com/bydl instagram.com/creating.by.habit fb.me/bydlofficial

    1 – Stéphane Borrel – The Sweet & Prickly

    The Sweet & Prickly are an excerpt from Anthology of Laughter, an electroacoustic work that employs as its essential sound material the laughter from the recordings of three hundred invited participants – the recorded laughter is natural, authentic, it is not the laughter of comedians. The piece features a small verse-chorus type form. The four verses make hear the laughter of men, only mouths closed; the four refrains arise when one of the men laughs to the point of opening his mouth. This is a work of composition: of course, in reality, the six men involved have never met.

    Stéphane Borrel (1974) lives and works in Lyon, France. He writes for different ensembles and diverse electronics, ranging from chamber music to the symphony orchestra, from mixed music to sound installations. 
    https://www.stephaneborrel.fr

    2 – Ale Borea – Suennos de un peloton de fusilamiento

    “Sueños de un peloton de fusilamiento” is a sound collage made from fragments of SWR recordings from The Conet Project as well as internet recordings in which the phantasmagoric and omnipresent character of the recorded and transmitted sound is emphasized. Rather than being a sound-object frozen in time as a fragment of history that comes into existence when tuned in by a listener, the signal-sound is explored as an anonymous wandering process. Its name draws an analogy between the signal-SWR and the soldier as raw materials and war machinery, secretly yearning to return to a lost past of “peace”.

    Ale Borea is a sound artist and researcher from Lima, Peru. She holds a master’s degree in Philosophy and is a self-taught percussionist. Her work focuses in the interweaving of perception, rhythm, body, sound, and phenomenology of perception. In 2020, Borea moved to Berlin, where she develops her solo project, plays in different bands and works on her musical research.

    3 – Katie Currie – crying in public (11:52)

    A sonic collage; using echoes of grief, treasured memories alongside moments I felt totally overwhelmed to blur into a tool for healing. Traces of comforting techniques have also been included such as the re-recording of a CBT breathing exercise. The title comes from the many recordings I made of myself silently crying in public, usually on the bus. Influenced by ASMR as a form of anxiety or stress relief the components are soothing and result in a reflective moment for the listener.

    4 – farmer wadams – Prime Time Modem Mix

    ‘Prime Time’  is an experiment to create music from rhythms based on prime numbers, with sounds created by rulers pining off desks, thumb tapping, and a message from my drunken teenage son. This remix without the vocal and underlying modem sound.

    I have worked in animation for the past 25 years – currently Creative Director at Wild Child Animation, Stirling. I started out in club visuals and live AV performances, as part of a collective called Pointless Creations, and have always wanted to go back and make music of my own. Struggling to find time to learn music software, I decided to use Resolve, video editing software with which I was already familiar. So earlier this year I made my first track ill in bed with covid, which reflects the semi-delirious state I was in at the time.

    5 – Juliana Capes – Physical pink pear tree

    From “GOWO MANGO” an album of song sketches by visual artist and describer Juliana Capes,  commissioned as expanded audio description by artist Laura Aldridge,  as part of an audio interpretation of her recent monograph THINGS THAT SOAK YOU.

    Capes’s descriptions of Aldridge’s sculptures have morphed through conversation into sketches of songs, through exploration of Laura’s working methods of expanded collage, shared enthusiasm about musical influences and love of mash up and the encouragement burgeoning friendship and collaboration.

    Juliana Capes is a multi disciplinary visual artist.  She has worked in the field of integrated and expanded visual description within her own practise and those of others since 2015. Her current artwork is influenced by her experiences of working as a visual describer in Scottish galleries and museums, the unrelenting beauty of the world and by the processes of feeling, seeing and believing. She has recently shown work at Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh, Edinburgh Art Festival, Alchemy Film Festival, CCA , Glasgow and Campleline Gallery.

    6 – Sylvaine Souklaye – Mundane paradise

    mundane paradise is a binaural installation about the ephemeral epiphany we experience between the end of our sleep and our awakening.
    As a child, I spent a lot of time trying not to sleep. I thought I might die during my sleep. But death wasn’t my primal fear. I didn’t want to finish inside any paradox of my mother’s Bible. At the time, insomnia and vandalism became my muses, they helped me fight the inevitable.
    The marketing of Christianity has since vanished from my existence, and nights have transformed into a stream of consciousness where I delve, sink and rise to create. I started to appreciate the unpredictable nature of the awakening. Will I be dead or not? The question “Will I sleep alone or not?” took over…
    Sharing sleep and awakening is the most important part of my intimacy. It is when I’m defenceless, when I am myself, before hearing my voice, seeing my skin colour and feeling my body. It is this moment before time and space, when and how.
    mundane paradise is a live monologue before reason, necessity, and ego possess my mind and body.
    mundane paradise is an ephemeral epiphany before who, what and where, before me, before the artist, before New York.

    Sylvain Souklaye is a French performance and installation artist obsessed with sampling intimacies about people who don’t belong to a determinate identity, gender, class, colour or nationality. His performances are a collage of individual memories which are relived for the audience. Self-taught, he began performing with vandalism in Lyon (France) and then intimate happenings, radio experimentation and action poetry. He later developed digital art installations using field recording techniques as a narrative layer while pursuing his writer’s path.

    7 – Johnny Dixon – Driverless Vehicle

    8 – Las Exorcistas – Yo conozco tu locura porque también es la mía

    I know your madness because it is also mine is a spell against lesbophobia that was cast in a ritual that was first held at the event ‘Where strength is born’, 2018, National University of Colombia, Bogotá. This piece, a strong potion against lesbophobia, features voices from several Latin American artists who self-identify as lesbians, as well as the recorded sound from the 2018 performance. This piece was especially created for National University Radio as part of the launch of the memory of the event.  

    The Exorcists (Ana María Romano G. and Marta Cabrera) is a creative duo who want to rid the multiverse of homo, lesbo and transphobia.

  • Maximilian Goldfarb - Negative
    21 August 2023  11:00 pm - 22 August 2023  12:00 am

    description
    Negative is a 58-minute soundscape that evokes an imagined future reconstruction of the present moment: A drone captures aerial surveillance of a deserted landscape. The landscape is visualizing the previous activities that played out through the tools, devices and equipment of a civilization determined to understand and control its environment, while also causing its own destruction and dematerialization. We hear the ghosts of formerly crowded social environments, and the thick din of communications chatter but all that remains to be seen is a depopulated vastness of time remembered by geological form. Maximilian Goldfarb is an Assistant Professor of Art, University at Buffalo, and a current research fellow at the UB Humanities Institute. His project, M49, is a field transmission station on the property of the Wave Farm in Acra, NY. Goldfarb has participated in numerous exhibitions in venues including, Sculpture Center, NY; Stadsgalerij, NL; Magenta Plains, NY; Western Front, BC; White Columns, NY; and Hallwalls, Buffalo, NY. A recurring fellow at MacDowell, several of his publications can be found at Printed Matter and Art Metropole. Goldfarb participates in the ongoing interdisciplinary collaborations, “Wolf Tones” and “The Conduction Series”.

  • Tristan Partridge - Flood Pulse Projections I
    22 August 2023  12:00 am - 12:30 am

    description
    This piece is an audio response to the growing unpredictability of seasonal cycles. It reflects on the slow violence of incremental change. Now that 1000-year floods occur frequently, socioecological relationships are increasingly fraught. These instabilities are experienced very unevenly across time, territories, and identities. In place of annual rains and renewal, there are inundations and catastrophic loss. But gradual change continues, beneath and between such events. In this piece, an unbroken take, consistency becomes unrecognizable. Altered by phasing, misled by repetition, frequency becomes unreliable – echoes of environmental processes that remould what it is to observe and to connect.

  • Sam Rowell - Industrial Music: an aleatoric composition created using the sounds of the MIMII dataset
    22 August 2023  12:30 am - 2:00 am

    description
    The Malfunctioning Industrial Machine Investigation and Inspection (MIMII) dataset is composed of over 30,000 recordings of factory sounds.   Created by the Research and Development Group of Hitachi, Ltd., these recordings provide the means to train artificial intelligence to diagnose mechanical faults and apply predictive maintenance models to industrial machinery using computer monitored microphones. The eventual goal is to create factories that can be run without human intervention.  

    Sam Rowell is a musician, visual artist, and creative broadcaster living in Los Angeles. For almost a decade, she has produced Special Collections, a live sound collage program. An episode of Special Collections might feature the sounds of resonant architecture, electromagnetic energies recorded in space, volcanic eruptions, or mediums using radio as a means to commune with the dead. Rowell is also co-director of Lookout FM, a collective of low power FM radio stations in the Los Angeles area dedicated to the creation and broadcast of transmission arts. Her work is available online at https://specialcollections.radio.

  • Simon Le Boggit - THEREFORE
    22 August 2023  3:00 am - 6:00 am

    description
    THEREFORE is a “perpetual” audio-poem which organically mutates and regenerates itself from a stanzacloud of verse. Each whispered line of the poem is relentlessly shifting in relation to every other line, as the poem endlessly renews itself. This is the closest that its creator Simon Le Boggit has come to expressing a state of mind where the physical and psychological suffering caused by the arthritic autoimmune disease Ankylosing Spondylitis shifts the goalposts so randomly and rapidly that you don’t know what you are – let alone who you are, where you are, or where you are going…   Simon Le Boggit is a multimedia artist. He was born, inflated, and will eventually deflate.

    description
    Re-run 9 is a collage of electronic improvisations involving layers of tape, field recordings and various instruments meant to portray movement through particular places. Sounds of a seaside hikes, looped museum commentary and public transportation are meant to evoke a kind of theme that is entirely up to the listener. Andy Armstrong is an American musician and sound artist from Charleston, Illinois. He studied sound art at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and cinema at Southern Illinois University. He currently lives in Rennes, France where he works as a teacher and translator. creamwhite.bandcamp.com

  • Zannah Matson & Jacob Moginot - Listening to an Everyday Landscape in Guaviare, Colombia
    22 August 2023  6:50 am - 8:00 am

    description
    As an experimental recording, this soundscape transports you through a day in the landscapes of Guaviare, Colombia. Situated on the edge of the Amazon basin, these landscapes have immense biodiversity threatened by increasing development and agricultural land transformation. These biophonic recordings provide an auditory snapshot of the species currently living in this region, while conveying their entangled ecologies. Composed of a series of temporal recordings from across the landscapes of Guaviare, this piece weaves together the territorial calls of monkeys, bats in series of caves carved by ancient rivers, a typical afternoon rainstorm, and nocturnal birds in the stillness of a flooded forest.

    Jacob Moginot is a scientist and sound artist working with landscapes beyond the seen, finding fascinating interactions within natural sonic symphonies heard in changing ecologies. Jacob recorded these soundscapes alongside research with Zannah Matson, who examines the afterlives of coloniality through highway construction in Colombia’s Eastern piedmont landscapes. Her work thinks about power structures, transportation infrastructure, and visual representation of Colombian landscapes, and the impacts that these structural injustices have on the ecosystems and human lives at the edge of the Amazon basin.

    1- Tam Lin – Long Distance

    Long Distance is a narrative piece in the form of a voicemail. Tam drew on early memories of calls with his mother when she travelled to different countries for work. These calls would carry a fragile quality, often slightly rushed, and occurring at strange times of the day.

    Tam Lines is a multidisciplinary artist, writer, and musician. Their work touches on the boundaries between the human and nonhuman, incorporating new materialism and queer theory, cybernetics, horror media and introspective poetic approaches. They compose industrial soundscapes, crooked loops and cramped beats under the moniker Tam Lin.

    2 – Dariusz Mazurowski – Sybil Vanes Final Performance

    Commissioned by the Antenna Non Grata record label for the upcoming radio compilation CD album. The main source material here: random selection of radio broadcasts recorded during the first months of 2023 – noises, crackles, distorted dialogues, etc. Some are heavily processed, others have been left almost untouched. I also used archival fragments of my radio interviews (in Polish, English and Czech) and an my own interpretation of a single phrase from The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde.

    Dariusz Mazurowski is a Polish electroacoustic music composer and performer born and residing in Gdansk. While the majority of his compositional activity has focused on acousmatic works, he has also composed instrumental music in conjunction with electronics, audio installations and improvised electroacoustic music. Mazurowski’s music has been broadcast by radio stations all over the world, and he has performed at festivals and other events in Europe, North America, South America and Asia.

    6 – Lorenzo Abattoir – Second Act 01: Breathing Like a Beast

    From the album ‘The second act’ on Vice de Forme. The continuation of a metamorphosis process started one year ago with the album “Disincarnazone”. These two tracks were recorded in Torino at the end of 2022 during some sessions of constant reiteration of breathing techniques and imitation of animal sounds into an amplified environment.

    Lorenzo Abattoir is a sound artist based in Torino (IT). A key element of his work is the relationship between spiritual practices and unusual methods of audio processing, mainly focusing on the use of microphones as a medium for the amplification of an act. He explores the boundaries between sound and noise using breathing techniques, bodily sounds and different kinds of amplified objects as instruments to structures his performances.

  • Debashis Sinha - In The City The Body Rests
    22 August 2023  9:00 am - 10:00 am

    description
    It comes from a complicated coming together of branches, experiences, connections—human-, earth- and sky-bound. Every story is a container of richness, a carpet that can be pulled apart and each thread marvelled at, equal in beauty and complexity to the whole. The weave can be re-woven into new pieces, new combinations of colour and line.

    The stories my grandmothers told me as a boy are complicated sensory experiences (the smell of their saris, the hum of the ceiling fan, the traffic (or lack of it) out the window, how they patted my head, the rhythm of it, the rain). And then the stories themselves, tangled intertwining of mythology, family anecdotes, gossip that I could hardly follow with my basic Bengali skills. Meaning, language, pattern, sound.

    My creative (ethnographic) practice has always been about seeking the sounds outside my hearing, those that weren’t coming out of radio speakers or on the suburban streets and playgrounds. The sounds of Hindustani classical music were as precious and as fierce to me as the 2-Tone music of England in the mid-80s—they both were from a world that I didn’t see but represented a powerful experience and worldview that hummed at the edges of my consciousness. I knew that these sounds made up, or were part of, a picture of the breadth of what I wanted my life to be (and others’ as well).

    Every story is grown.

    My story was more than the colour of my skin, or my Canadian accent, or my hard-won burgeoning Bengali abilities. My story was all of those things coexisting with a million other descriptions. As I came to understand this and (slowly, tentatively) celebrate it, I realized (am still realizing) that this was true of stories in general, for all of us. And that if true, then the stories that we hold are as interwoven with the sensorium as anyone’s, each one a weave of place, language, senses, experience (and a weave is a map, with many routes in and through).

    Sound is, for me, the route to discovering the rich confluence of ideas and sense-experience held in the story, and in the moment of the telling of it. The quiet, singsong tones of a half-understood language in the afternoon heat is a repository of meaning in itself, as well as a vector of information. The pauses in the telling of the myth to call out instructions to the cook holds a part of the image, is a path.

    When I seek to uncover the story of a place or time or moment, I understand that this uncovering is connected to the land, the air, the sounds and smells and time that passed there, the people who told stories standing exactly at that place before the moment I stood on that spot, and after—where you are now, right now, exactly there: someone told a story to their child, their people, their lover, the stars.

    Every story is grown.

    In the city the body rests is the second in a series of radiophonic works that look at known phenomena and attempt to deconstruct and re-imagine them. The first in this series, The Light, was broadcast on Deutschlandradio Kultur in 2012. Most of the text for In the city… was written on a trip to Kolkata, India during the 2015 Christmas season. Dhakuria Bridge is a work that I generated using machine learning tools and neural networks trained on field recordings I’ve collected over many trips there.

    Kolkata plays a large part in my audio work—it is the anchor of many sound compositions, installations, videos and performance works I have devised over the years, and my experience of being south Asian in Canada has been largely informed by my relationship to this city and my familial, cultural and spiritual connection to it.

    Writing the text for In the city… (the first work of the two) started out as a project to crystallize many of my thoughts about Kolkata, but, as I wrote, I realized that my thoughts on the city—coloured and romanticized as I made them—were actually a direct expression (or perhaps were the foundation for) how I think about urban spaces, and the roles they play in human culture and larger arcs of pre- and post-human time.

    Looking deeper, these two works are an expression of the multimodal experience of the space of the city and the story we could construct from it. I’m drawn to the concept of multimodality—it implies an acceptance of the totality of the place/moment, building a space and time for an ecology wherein we are listening and listened to, as Robinson puts it above.

    It is undeniable to me that a place simultaneously encodes and expresses the sum total of its time—both the long thread of history of the land, witnessed by human and non-human beings, and the endless pointillistic moment of observation, the sounds, smells, heat, dirt, wind and sun. The story of the thread and the moment coexist and complicate/support the observation, and the observer. It is impossible to break out the moment into only one mode of apprehension.

    And so an entangled, multimodal ethnography: a system of observing and recording that takes all of it in, in all its confusing complexity, and allows it all to be present in the story we tell. 

    In the City the Body Rests – Past issues (wordpress.com)

    Driven by a deep commitment to the primacy of sound in creative expression, Debashis Sinha has created numerous audio-centred solo and collaborative projects across Canada and internationally. Sound design and composition credits include works for digital media and theatrical productions with many of Canada’s premiere theatre companies. His speculative mythology-driven sound practice has led to live appearances on stages from Japan to the mountains of Alberta. Currently, Sinha has been researching sound production using machine learning and AI with an ear to uncovering new modes and methods of story creation, releasing recordings on Berlin’s Establishment Records imprint, Gusstaff and elsewhere. He is an assistant professor in The Creative School at X (Ryerson) University in Toronto, Canada.

    22 August 2023  10:00 am - 10:30 am

    description
    A radio slips between stations. From static, a voice emerges, reading an elliptical, fragmentary text, interpolated with birdsong, improvised music and sounds of private acts performed in public spaces. The performed text is from a copy of Institutional and Schizophrenia: A Comparative Study of Three Mental Hospitals 1960-68.   The medical/authoritative voice has been erased using Tippex, leaving a poetic, Beckettian remainder which gradually coalesces into a description of the collective experience of those who were compelled to live long-term at Netherne hospital and an emotional, evocative exploration of power structures, dailiness and creativity in the experimental art therapy studio there. Rose Ruane is an artist and writer, living and working in Glasgow. Her debut novel This Is Yesterday was published by Corsair books, with a second to follow in summer 2024. She has made radio work for Radio Scotland, Radio 3 and Radiophrenia and is currently finishing a SGSAH funded PhD at Glasgow University exploring The Adamson Collection: work created during the C20th, in the art therapy studio at Netherne mental hospital, by individuals who were compelled to live there. Wing of Glass was created in collaboration with a sound artist working under the name Local Teenagers.

    Pieces in order of play:

    1)    Arkle 64, 7’32”.
    2)    The Fish and Meat Market, 8’26”.
    3)    Three Generations, 11’43”.

    This project is based around a collection of cassette tapes I discovered. Recorded by my grandfather before I was born, the tapes contain a mixture of recorded family discussions, radio recordings and music compilations, all recorded in the same council house in South Wales, 66 Montclaire Avenue. My intention as a composer, was both to explore the nuanced environment held within the tapes, as well as the people themselves and the wider social and political issues presented. This, I hope, allows for a meaningful relationship between sound and context to be created, one that conjures nostalgia and evokes memories.

    Sam Bland is a sonic artist, composer and workshop leader, interested in the potential of sound art to investigate social history. He is a recent post-graduate from the University of Birmingham, where he completed an MA in Electroacoustic Composition. His work often combines interviews, field and archive recordings and electronics, to produce dense and politically engaged soundscapes. His recent project, 66 Montclaire, was selected for the Daegu International Computer Music Festival 2022. Sam has also received commissions from Croydon Council, the Croydon Art Store and We’re All Bats Listening Arts Channel, to run community based sound projects.

    Aurélie Nyirabikali Lierman

    KARIAKOO

    KARIAKOO is a portrait of Kariakoo, a vibrant neighborhoodin Dar Es Salaam (Tanzania).
    It’s hard to speak of one specific ‘protagonist’ in KARIAKOO. Since the‘superstar’ in this story is not a person but a geographical spot. Not onehuman being but a whole neighborhood. Not singular but plural.
    KARIAKOO is about the whole community of individuals who are living or working,visiting or just walking accidentally in and out Kariakoo: all together forminga highly unique polyphony of ‘voices’ creating a sonic environment with aclearly defined identity.
    There are some voices that you mayconsider as ‘singular characters’ but in fact they are reduced to the functionof supporting actors. Or as ‘humanized’ props, merely used like a vessel, tocarry the narrative from one scene to another. Or like a medium through whichthe story of Kariakoo gets transmitted or received, told or heard.

    Biography

    Aurélie Nyirabikali Lierman is a Belgian-Rwandan composer, radio and vocal artist. Pioneer of Afro-European radio art and musical theatre. Her work has been described as bold, provocative and delicate.

    She brings unique stories to life in an accessible and at the same time innovative way: based on acoustic sounds and soundscapes that she moves around like a kind of 3D cinema, but for the ears. She records all the sound recordings in her work herself during her many field recording expeditions to East-Africa.

    Just this year she created Umva! an intimate ode to Kanyoni Ladislas, her 113-year-old grandfather and one of the last traditional doctors and hunters in Rwanda.

    She collaborates with other artists in a variety of disciplines and fields and has won many prizes at home and abroad.

    babblesnatch invites an immersion in cascading, rebounding Sound.  The original 8-speaker ‘sonic snowglobe’ installation, created entirely from two Voices, has been distilled into 2-channels for Radiophrenia.  babblesnatch invites consideration of what it might be like to experience the usually non-audible digital voices continually enveloping us.   As Voices dart and fly, emerging recognisable words take on a significance that Listeners have to decide for themselves.

    Text and Voices:  Caroline Wilkins & Leona Jones
    Leona Jones was supported by PRS Foundation’s Women Make Music
    babblesnatch premiered as its full 8-speaker installation in July 2023 at Somerset Film’s Engine Room, Bridgwater.

    Dancing between This and That Leona’s multi-modal experimental practice explores Sound in its widest definition.  Using the hardlyheard and underseen, the conscious and not-so-conscious, she highlights physicality and context in events/performances and installations centred around Sound, Voice, Language and Spatiality. Leona makes a concerted effort to reach into an audience’s imagination, encouraging their ability to listen, as she believes listening to be vital to any healthy society. Her work has been presented and performed in galleries, but it’s just as likely to be unexpectedly discovered responding to places and spaces not usually associated with the arts.

    1 – Patric Simmerud – Wish Tree 

    A site specific piece intended to be experienced in the centre of Yoko Ono’s installation ”Wish tree for Wanås”. Ono’s work consists of 14 apple trees in which visitors can hang pieces of paper with wishes written on them, according to Ono’s instruction: “Write your wish on a piece of paper and hang it on a tree.” The wishes are harvested and sent to the Imagine Peace Tower in Iceland where they are archived. The site was created in 2007 and since then, a pillar of light has shone at the monument every year from October 9 to December 8.

    Patric Simmerud is a composer and sound artist based in Stockholm, Sweden. Classically trained and with wide influences, my work as a composer range from contemporary art music – including electroacoustic and radiophonic pieces, chamber music and music for full orchestra – to soundscapes and music for film. As a sound artist, I have explored various artistic disciplines such as installation, performance, videoart. My work has been internationally performed and included in various art exhibitions. In addition, I lead the music and score engraving company MakeMyDayMusic.          http://www.simmerud.com

    2 – Alfredo Cerrito – Parivartan  

    Everything is Creation, everything is Change, everything is Flux, everything is Metamorphosis. He concentrates on the use of very few materials, exploring the different possibilities of transformation and the sound of these. There are numerous manipulative techniques, showing that everything lives in a metamorphosis which, although invisible, never stops. Everything is emotionally supported by the Tonic sounds that return, albeit changed, to remind us that as far as we can move away from our gravitational center there is always a generating force that keeps us anchored to our essence.

    Alfredo Cerrito is an Italian saxophonist, composer and conductor. His works have been selected for important electronic music festivals.In particular, his compositions have recently been performed at the Audioblast Festival in Nice and Paris, at the “InSonora Project” in Barcelona, on the CJSW (Canada), for the “ResonanceFM” broadcast in England, for the SICM Colloque at the Sorbonne University of Paris and the University of Lille, for the “KunstArt” exhibition in Krakow. In February 2023 he was invited to play for the “TRK Glitch Club” Festival organized by the prestigious research center “Tempo Reale” (Florence), founded by L. Berio in 1987

    The present work was made from sounds that were originally generated by the instruments of Productions Totem Contemporain and other sources. The piece was composed for Totem Électroacoustique competition that in 2022 celebrate its 20 years of sound research. PTC called to participate in competition.

    The origin of the sound material as part of an instrumentarium unique in the world like: TOTEM instrument as the bowl, the insects, the pipe, tu-yo, the acoustic oscillator and many others. The original sounds are distributed and mixed in a creative process trying to connect with the matter of sound that included another aspect of the concepts as a spiritual significance that is adopted by it as an emblem manipulation of the reality. The composition brings together voices and material related with new acoustic musical instruments.   gustavochab.blogspot.com.ar

A by product of rainy days and capitalism, this is an expanded audio description of winter city streets that sits in the space between what we’re attracted to and what things perhaps might be. Originally recorded as an extended audio description of the exhibition “Inverted Streets” at the Hawthornvale Gallery at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop 2021, it has since been developed into a moving image work and installation.

    Juliana Capes is a multidisciplinary artist based in Edinburgh. A strand of her practice works with expanded audio description, intergrating access into the creative process. She has exhibited recently at St Anza Poetry Festival (2023), Campleline Gallery (2022) , CCA Glasgow (2022) and Alchemy Film Festival (2020).         https://www.julianacapes.co.uk

    5 – Veronica Daniela Cerrotta – Fortaleza     

    Work developed within the framework of the Sala Vazia Artistic Residency, in Fortaleza, Ceará, Brazil, between April 27 and May 6, 2019. The sounds of the city of Fortaleza conform a soundtrack that is narrated chronologically according to the walks done during the Residency. Different landscapes and situations succeed each other and overlap creating sound images that stimulate an attentive and creative listening.

  • Netta Weiser - Radio Choreographies
    22 August 2023  2:00 pm - 2:45 pm

    description
    What would a Radio-Choreography be like? This piece explores the possibilities of the radio to function as an invisible stage and archival space for dance.
     
    Based on extensive research and collaborations between choreographers, sound artists, and dance historians, we present a collection radiophonic adaptations to dance practices that were created by female choreographers in contexts of migration and resistance. In-cluding: a dance-action performed in Beirut in the context of the Lebanese Revolution in 2019, a dance that was performed in Athens 1913 as part of a revue theatre criticising the first Balkan War, an emancipatory choreography of hair created in Teheran 2021, and a language choreography that was conceived in a prison cell in Berlin 1942.

    Concept and artistic director: Netta Weiser, Compositions: Netta Weiser, Azadeh Nilchiani, Marta Gentilluci, Choreographic collaboration: Dominique Tegho, Shahrzad Nazarpour, Voice actress: Claudia Basrawi, Soprano: Tehila Nini Goldstein, Pianist: Michaela Catranis, Dramaturgy: Annett Hardegen, Compositional assistance: Anderi Cucu, Giovanni Verga, Archival research: Anna Leon, Miriam Althammer, Mastering: Macarena Solervicens 

    Netta Weiser (b.1991 Israel, based in Berlin)works at the intersection of choreography, experimental radio and discursive practice. She was trained as a dancer in Israel and holds a Masters degree in Interdisciplinary Arts from Tel-Aviv University. Her works have been presented internationally in performing arts venues such as Tanzquartier Wien, Akademie der Künste and Sophiensaele Berlin, Villa Medici Rome, as well as in ra-dio contexts such as WDR, reboot.fm and The Israeli Centre for Digital Art.

  • Fraser MacBeath - Tiugainn Dachaidh
    22 August 2023  2:45 pm - 3:00 pm

    description

    The Outer Hebrides are among rural communities throughout the world that are experiencing population decline. Out of any Scottish local authority region, The Outer Hebrides is where this is most significant. From 1901 to 2001the population has fallen by 40% and continues to drop more dramatically in recent years. The Outer Hebrides comprise more than 70 islands but only 15remain inhabited today. Tiugainn Dachaidh is a project which casts a light on this issue, using field recordings captured in abandoned houses in the Hebrides and Scottish archive material to paint wounded soundscapes of a culture in decline.

    Fraser MacBeath is an audiovisual artist from the Isle of Lewis. Using the mediums of sound, film and installation, Fraser creates work which combines elements of musique concrète, sound art and ambient music with abstract film and physical environments. His work focuses on themes of memory, culture, hauntology, sociological issues and the relationship between tradition and modernity. Fraser’s work often centers around his home in the Outer Hebrides, and attempts to contemporise the often archaic view of rural Scotland.

    22 August 2023  3:30 pm - 4:00 pm

    description
    D  I hAve  No voIcE  LA is a spoken word piece based around an indeterminacy of sounds in chaos, phonetically structured so that they form their own spoken language. As the refrain develops the voice advances in two languages and becomes a computer language, with an algorithmic diction.
     
    The voice tells us she has no voice, she is AI, a bot. Her voice however has a name, Daniela, the feminine of Daniel in 2001 Space Odyssey by Arthur C. Clarke and Kubrick, and one of the avatars Annlee speaks about in Anywhere Out of the World (2000 Parreno).

    Julie Coutureau aka juliedesk, is a multimedia artist and sound poetess, author and composer of writings and sounds. Trained at the Beaux-Arts in Paris and then in sound techniques at the SVA (NY), she went through the performance, music, until her practice narrowed to writing and sound poetry. Her sound pieces, spoken cut words and mixes of sounds of various kinds, are broadcasted on ∏Node, Radia.fm, … She joined the collective ∏Node, webradio, DAB+ and radio art, in 2020. In 2022 she won the 1st prize of 60 secondes radio (Canada) with “Les ons diffus les ons que l’ont fut”.

  • Andy Kelleher Stuhl - 25Hz
    22 August 2023  4:30 pm - 5:00 pm

    description
    25 Hz, a historical noise-drama about radio automation, splices together audio samples from a span of 1951 to present. A 25 Hz “cue tone” punctuates each splice, inverting the automation system’s goal of seamlessly executing a programmed sequence. Re-sonifying those seams from within radio, the piece aims to open automation up as more than an industrial object – as a peculiar, emotionally charged, and passionately countered dream. 25 Hz was produced for the Radia Network through the Wave Farm Radio Artist Fellowship. It features vocal reenacting from Gregory Whitehead, and five other sound artists provided cue tone recordings.

    Andy Kelleher Stuhl was the 2021/2022 Wave Farm Radio Artist Fellow. He is currently a PhD candidate in Communication Studies at McGill University, where his dissertation traces the cultural meaning of radio automation between 1950 and 2010. He approaches radio history as a resource for overlooked precedents that artists and critics might adapt toward intervention in present-day technological systems.

  • Production 4 - Diana Duta & Florence Cats - Like a telepath
    22 August 2023  6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

    description
    ‘Like a telepath’ pieces together a week-long journey of remote recordings. ‘Emitting’ and ‘receiving’ from a small island and from a city simultaneously, in order to mimick a radio device. To do this, we would start the recording of our parallel transmissions at the same moment in time, using the distance between us as a space to connect. What you hear is a photograph of a thought, a long, windy line tracing a series of synchronous compositions. Cover a moment, remain standing, crumpling paper in your hands. A phone rings – s in the past.

    Brussels – L’Île-d’Yeu, May 2023

    ‘Like a telepath’ is a co-commission between Radiophrenia and Kunstradio Radiokunst for Ö1, Austria.

    Diana Duta is a Romanian-born, Brussels based artist working with sound in hypnotic ways, with a background in art and socio-cultural linguistics. Her work focuses on concepts of mimesis, translation and echoic memory, with an ear on our relationship to the non-human, embodied sound and the act of listening. She makes music performances (as DIAN), works for radio, sound installations and collaborative translation projects.

    Her project Jambes founded in 2019 is a recording studio commissioning new work by artists experimenting with sound and the voice. Quille podcast is an limb branching out from Jambes that collects interviews with sound practitioners.

    Florence Cats is a visual & sound artist and acupuncturist from Brussels who uses theremin, light, water, color and energies. Her ‘transparent music’ tunes in to space and ambient silence, and is inspired by natural radio. She has curated of a series of exhibitions around water, signs, transmutations, and is the co-author of several books including ‘Lavori in corso’ (primitive press, 2020). She released ‘Ys’ on ediçoes CN in 2022 and ‘correspondances’ on frissons in 2021. She was also a member of The Asocial Telepathic Ensemble (corvo records, 2022) and often collaborates with other musicians and artists, such as Brandon LaBelle, Clara Levy, Bogdana Dima, Mauricio Amarante, Joseph Charroy.

    description
    CCA Theatre, from 7pm Tuesday 22nd August. Tickets: Pay what you can from the CCA Box Office

    Maria, Mariza and maybe Marianna (2014) is a kaleidoscope of disembodied voices, field recordings and found sound forged and sculpted into an unearthly sonic narration.

    The piece will be presented as a 6.2 live performance in the CCA theatre space. Expect high volumes and near darkness.

    Composition: Aurélie Lierman (BE/RW)
    Voice: Aurélie Lierman, Maria Avraam (CYP), Mariza Anastasiades (CYP)

    Eternal gratitude to my three lovely muses Maria Avraam, Mariza Anastasiades, Marianna Soroka.

    Aurélie Nyirabikali Lierman was born in Rwanda but grew up in Belgium from the age of two. She’s an independent radio producer, vocalist and composer trying new directions by fusing radio art, vocal art and composition. Her main focus is her personal field recordings: a large collection of unique sounds and soundscapes from rural and urban contemporary East‐Africa. Sound‐bit by sound‐bit she’s transforming and sculpting them into something she would call “Afrique Concrète”. Lierman’s award winning work has been broadcasted, exhibited and performed throughout Europe, Israel, Morocco, South Africa, Tanzania, Australia, Canada and USA.

    In November 2020 Aurélie Nyirabikali Lierman was awarded an Arts&Media Fellowship at DAAD in Berlin. In April 2019 Lierman got (as part of improv trio Organo) nominated for the pre-selection of the Matthijs Vermeulenprijs 2019. October 2018 she won the CTM Radiolab 2019 in Berlin for ‘Sogokuru’, a performative installation dedicated to Kanyoni Ladislas, her Rwandan supercentenarian grandfather. In January 2016 Lierman was awarded the Sally and Don Lucas Fellowship at Montalvo Arts in California. In May 2014 she won the First Prize at Monophonic 2014 (Brussels) for ‘Anosmia’, a radio composition reflecting on the Rwandan Genocide. In June 2013 she won the 1st prize at Sonic Art (Rome) for her radio composition ‘KARIAKOO’ ( a sonic portrait of a lively neighborhood in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania). In October that same year, Lierman also won the 3rd prize at Grand Prix Nova (Bucharest) for her radio composition ‘iota mikro’ (based on field recordings from her birthplace, the Karisimbi vulcano, in Rwanda).

    Lierman released two albums with the British cult-group Nurse With Wound, collaborated with visual artist Vincent Meessen at Kunsthalle Basel and Bozar. She toured the USA premiering her solo sets for voice and tape. And has recently performed the leading role in ‘What Happened | Plays’ a Gertrude-Stein-inspired chamber opera by Samuel Vriezen and Adam Frank.

    Lierman is appointed Seizoenscomponist 2021 – 2022 at Concertgebouw Brugge (BE), simultaneously with Seizoensdenker David Van Reybrouck and Seizoenskunstenaar Yaqine Hamzaoui.

    ‘A Collection of Miniature Pigs’ by Romy Danielewicz

    An experimental multi-form work for live audiences and the radio. Consisting of sound, speech, music and movement, the performance weaves together waking and dream material to unpack how power structures are communicated through unconscious social messages.

    In the artist’s dream material, the figure of a ‘violent, aggressive, unpredictable, slow-murder-under-the-surface-seething guy’ makes frequent appearances, pointing to the social mechanisms which underpin violence against minoritized genders (cis and trans women, transmen and non-binary people). ‘A Collection of Miniature Pigs’ explores these hauntings emerging from a stream of (un)consciousness, and how to resist the violences they are a symptom of.

    The performance will be a combination of scripted and non-scripted communication. Its range of interventions will span a casio synth, movement, bowed guitar, drumkit, violin, a conversation, drummed guitar and field recordings.

    Romy Danielewicz is an artist whose practice currently encompasses writing, performance and improvised music. They are interested in various forms of non-conformity, specifically how to resist and divest from normative forms of sociality under cisheteropatriarchy and racialised capitalism. They graduated from Edinburgh College of Art (2016) and served on the programming committee of Market Gallery (2018 – 2020).

    Romy has presented work both in DIY and institutional settings. They have exhibited at the Edinburgh Art Festival, Intermedia (CCA Glasgow) and Embassy Gallery among others. Their performances have been programmed at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop and Present Futures. Most recently, they have been doing gigs, including the ‘Disposables’ tour with the band/performance troupe Cank.

    Romy has produced work for independent radio, including Soundartradio FM (Devon) and Withkin Radio (Dorset). They have done various artist residencies including at Hospitalfield, the Scottish Sculpture Workshop and internationally at Institut für Alles Mögliche in Berlin and La Fragua in Andalucía, Spain. In 2019, they published their first poetry pamphlet with SPAM Press, An orca is way too large to attach unless as a jpeg.

    Romy is currently undertaking counselling training. They are also very slowly working, and often not working, on a debut novel about lovesickness and ambivalence.

    1 – Francesca Centonze -The next day I started scratching musical notes on the prison wall with my garter belt fastener

    “The next day I started scratching musical notes on the prison wall with my garter belt fastener” represents the biography of Else Marie Pade on four long wooden panels. Else Marie Pade was one of the pioneers of electronic music in Denmark, active in the resistance from 1944 and then later arrested by the Gestapo and survived in Frøslev prison camp. This woman’s devotion to music and tenacity are thus immortalised in a Transmediale work mixing watercolours, video projections and soundscape spacial audio.

    Francesca Centonze(1990) is an artist and filmmaker from Italy using the media of video, animation, audio and paintings. Her research is based on the correlation of images. She has participated in numerous projects and collaborations in which she has held various roles, not only as a camera operator and video editor, but also as director, co-director and producer. During her studies at the Free University of Bolzano, where she previously graduated in Design and Art, she developed an interest in filmmaking. Francesca currently studies and works between Vienna and Bolzano. She works for different clients such as musicians, artists, actors and institutions. Since 2018 she has been a student at the Univ. Prof. Mag.art Brigitte Kowanz/ Jakob Lena Knebl (Transmediale Kunst, Angewandte). Francesca since two years is also part of the interdisciplinary collective Klub Montage and she is involved in organising digital jam sessions, events and performances ranging from noize experimental music to art installations.

    2 – Gavin Inglis – The Needle Box

    A quiet horror story about a mysterious puzzle, lifelong obsession, and how we sometimes walk a line between fascination and dread. As age erodes those we love, sometimes the hardest thing is to let them make their own choices, no matter how dangerous.

    Gavin Inglis is a writer and game creator based in Edinburgh, working across digital and tabletop spaces, with credits on Call of Cthulhu, Zombies, Run!, Fallen London and more. His interactive novels are published by Choice of Games and he recently released a graphic novel about Functional Neurological Disorder. He is known for energetic live spoken word performances, often with music.        http://www.gavininglis.com


    3 – Chan Sze Ying – Due to a reported emergency would all passengers leave the station immediately

    This piece is based on a recording I made in Green Park station, a busy London Underground station. It consists of 2 side connected by a tunnel. One day the station has become overcrowded and an announcement was broadcasted to evacuate the passengers. At the time I thought something more serious had happened and I decided to record my journey to the exit of the station. The more I listen to the recording, the more interesting sounds my ears picked up and I decided to orchestrate the interesting moments using additional recorded violin and flute sounds.

    Sze Ying Chan is a Hong Kong born composer based in London. Chan graduated from the Royal College of Music studying composition for screen with Francis Shaw and Howard Davidson. Chan also studied composition with Haris Kittos and Alison Kay, and electroacoustic music with Michael Oliva. During her studies she has been awarded a BAFTA scholarship and was under the mentorship of George Fenton.   szeyingchan.com

    4 – Selestra – Dispatches from Radiotopia- Hamburg Rehearsal: 04 7074- Lullaby in the Key of FT8

    Recorded during the first rehearsal of RADIOTOPIA, these tracks guide shortwave frequencies into a portable modular system for signal transmutation. Understanding or decoding is not the point, but rather these signals act like any other voltage in the system: one to be manipulated, one that can travel through the wires to modulate another parameter. Paired with algorithmic generation of melodies, the tracks manifest a merging of generated and captured voltages from around the world.
    More information can be found here: https://selestra.bandcamp.com/album/dispatches-from-radiotopia-hamburg-rehearsal.

    Selestra is a moniker of Adriana Knouf, PhD (NL/US), who works as an artist, writer, and xenologist, focusing on topics such as wet media, space art, and queer and trans futurities.

    MASSIVE EU PILE UP! musically enhanced!

    “Listen to this thermonuclear pile up on the amateur (ham) radio shortwave band as hundreds of European radio stations attempt to be the next station to speak with an American radio operator.
    This clip contains frantic European voices over the shortwave radio, a virtual cacophony of panicked competitors, each scrambling against one another pitting their over-modulated, speech-processed transmitted signals against themselves. A superlative electronic menagerie of individualism over collectivism that would have made John Locke proud.”
    (Original radio text from Freesound.com)

    Stephen Scott currently has produced work in a variety of musical formats since the 1970s, and is edging towards finding his own unique niche.            https://stephenscott.bandcamp.com

    7 – Johnny Dixon – Industry

    8 – Berk Yagli – Ideological Distortion

    Ideological Distortion is a piece which explores the dark side of today’s media, dilution of ideologies, and constant bombardment of confusion. It invites the listener into reflecting on the issues and feel the horror and hate that is constantly imposed on society whether we individuals are lucid about it or not.

    Berk Yağlı (born 1999) is a Cypriot guitarist, composer, and producer. His mission with his music has been to talk about social, political, and philosophical matters interestingly to invite the listeners into reflecting on the topics. He has been active in the UK since 2017. His works have been presented internationally. He is regularly invited to compose his music in studios throughout the world.

    description
    Negative is a 58-minute soundscape that evokes an imagined future reconstruction of the present moment: A drone captures aerial surveillance of a deserted landscape. The landscape is visualizing the previous activities that played out through the tools, devices and equipment of a civilization determined to understand and control its environment, while also causing its own destruction and dematerialization. We hear the ghosts of formerly crowded social environments, and the thick din of communications chatter but all that remains to be seen is a depopulated vastness of time remembered by geological form. Maximilian Goldfarb is an Assistant Professor of Art, University at Buffalo, and a current research fellow at the UB Humanities Institute. His project, M49, is a field transmission station on the property of the Wave Farm in Acra, NY. Goldfarb has participated in numerous exhibitions in venues including, Sculpture Center, NY; Stadsgalerij, NL; Magenta Plains, NY; Western Front, BC; White Columns, NY; and Hallwalls, Buffalo, NY. A recurring fellow at MacDowell, several of his publications can be found at Printed Matter and Art Metropole. Goldfarb participates in the ongoing interdisciplinary collaborations, “Wolf Tones” and “The Conduction Series”.

  • ANTIVOIDALLIANCE - SPAMJAM

    description
    If parrhesia once described the bravery of a solo voice against a single force. Then a multitudinous oppression should be met with a chorus of dissent. A collective jamming of the signal; a co-produced glitch, a dissonant polyrhythm set against a discordant song.

  • SHHE - When Water No Longer Flows
    23 August 2023  12:15 am - 12:35 am

    description
    Experimenting with methods of sonic interpolation, sound artist and musician SHHE presents new work in response to the critical water crisis in Iraq. Constructed using recordings from Dokan Dam – the site of one of the largest hydroelectric power plants in Iraq – the composition charts the in/out-flow of water at the dam over the last 40 years, using sonification to signify periods of flood and drought.

    With alarming water shortages in Iraq reported each year and within a complex hydro-political landscape, the work seeks a balance between stability and unpredictability, posing the question; When water no longer flows ¬– will it still sound?
     
    Created during a residency in Kurdistan-Iraq in April 2023 and first presented at Erbil Citadel as part of In Between Land and Water exhibition, supported by British Council Iraq.

    SHHE is the alias of Scottish-Portuguese sound artist, musician and producer, Su Shaw.
    Her artistic practice is influenced by environment and ecology, exploring themes of identity and connection at the intersection between sound, space and liminal states.
    SHHE’s eponymous debut album was released by One Little Independent Records. Sound works, performances and installations have been presented at V&A Dundee co-commissioned by MSCTY Tokyo, Summerhall, Cryptic Nights/CCA (Scotland), HANGAR (Lisbon, PT), Rawabet (Cairo, EG), Jesuit Cultural Centre (Alexandria, EG), Tankur/Westfjords Residency (IS), Erbil Citadel (IQ) and BFI and Sensoria’s FAMLAB (digital)

  • Holbeck, Still - Procession parts 1 -3
    23 August 2023  12:35 am - 12:55 am

    description
    Explorations in dark electronic soundscapes, these three pieces represent three different parts of life: Part One is a beginning – trepidatious, unusual; Part Two is a life of chaos, rushing past at speed; Part Three is an ending, a slowing down of time and a return to nothing.

    Holbeck,Still is an audio artist based in Surrey, UK. The Holbeck,Still style fuses thick analog electronic sound design with unique captures of traditional instrumental tones.  This is compounded by a fascination for exploring the limits of the stereo field, whilst incorporating elements of randomness and imperfection.  He utilises a range of techniques that include field recordings, vintage tape machines, sampling and cutting-edge synthesis.  The resulting works are cinematic, complex soundscapes.

  • Mark Vernon - Keeping Time - Part 1
    23 August 2023  2:00 am - 6:00 am

    description

    Keeping Time is a 22-hour-long meditative radio work that focuses on our perception of the passage of time and how time is measured. The piece combines durational recordings of clock workshops around the UK and beyond with a specially constructed ‘radio clock’ painstakingly created from 3,600 individual percussive sounds – one for each second of the hour – plus excerpts from interviews with some of the horologists who generously gave up their time for this project.

    It was originally commissioned by Radio Art Zone for Esch City of Culture 2022. Radio Art Zone was an epic 100-day long radio marathon in which 100 different artists each presented a 22-hour-long radio work.

    Listen to the full 22-hour-long programme and view the documentation of the project on the dedicated webpage here.

  • Samugan Sivanesan - fugitive frequency: Jammin’ with Suva Das
    23 August 2023  7:00 am - 8:00 am

    description

    Jammin’ is a mashed-up sonic (anti-)ethnography of networked multi-user audio streaming platforms such as Jamulus and SonoBus — MUDs for musos. This episode is a montage of recordings made in various jam rooms I entered or initiated in April 2021 during COVID lockdowns in Berlin. They were edited together with excerpts from a conversation I had in November 2020 with Helsinki-based artist Suva Das and a recording from his first performance on fugitive radio in August 2020.

    Special thanks to ‘Europe session’, ‘Jazz so what’, ‘probando‘, ‘talktesttrytipstricks‘, ‘1234_Portugal‘ among others. Also a shout out to Peter from Exerzierstraße for introducing me to these spaces.

    fugitive radio was initiated by Sumugan Sivanesan in 2020 to research migrant, queer and anticolonial issues and music in Helsinki, in collaboration with not only media arts association, Pixelache Helsinki, and generously supported by Kone Foundation. Since 2021 the fugitive frequency podcast has broadcast on the first Tuesday of every month with CoLaboRadio on Freie Radios–Berlin Brandenburg. It is also available on Helsinki Open Waves and lumbung radio/Station of Commons. Now into its third season, the fugitive frequency podcast has become a vehicle to record interviews, document events and performances, share music and collaborate with others curious about radio as a research method.

    1 – Meryll Hardt – Métamorphe (4:29)

    Emerging from a light rain, a woman’s breath mingles with the bestiary of a humid ecosystem, an undergrowth, where creatures are barely distinguishable: wolves, insectes, small sounds amplified, big sounds muted.  Sounds winding and spinning on the ground and in the air awaken intertwined mutant energies, which are carried away in a tornado between tonal and noise in a flock of seagulls.      https://soundcloud.com/meryllh

    2 – Simon Le Boggit – Therefore

    THEREFORE is a “perpetual” audio-poem which organically mutates and regenerates itself from a stanzacloud of verse. Each whispered line of the poem is relentlessly shifting in relation to every other line, as the poem endlessly renews itself. This is the closest that its creator Simon Le Boggit has come to expressing a state of mind where the physical and psychological suffering caused by the arthritic autoimmune disease Ankylosing Spondylitis shifts the goalposts so randomly and rapidly that you don’t know what you are – let alone who you are, where you are, or where you are going…
     
    Simon Le Boggit is a multimedia artist. He was born, inflated, and will eventually deflate.

    3 – Alfredo Cerrito – Icanom

    The composition originates from the idea that every material in nature, including human being, is subjected to continuous transformations, constantly changing without losing its intrinsic qualities, those characteristics that make it unique. In the general arch, several electro-acoustic windows open; these windows highlight the sonic and spectro morphological qualities of the sound material in different ways, by touching all the various degrees of subrogation, thus creating different sound worlds. In the macrostructure, the composition can be considered a great texture that metaphorically corresponds to the vital arch (birth – growth phase – decay – death).

    Alfredo Cerrito is an Italian saxophonist, composer and conductor. His works have been selected for important electronic music festivals.In particular, his compositions have recently been performed at the Audioblast Festival in Nice and Paris, at the “InSonora Project” in Barcelona, on the CJSW (Canada), for the “ResonanceFM” broadcast in England, for the SICM Colloque at the Sorbonne University of Paris and the University of Lille, for the “KunstArt” exhibition in Krakow. In February 2023 he was invited to play for the “TRK Glitch Club” Festival organized by the prestigious research center “Tempo Reale” (Florence), founded by L. Berio in 1987

    4 – Female Laptop Orchestra – Once upon a time

    In 2021, the Fair_Play network (Austria) and Tsuku Boshi Records (France) invited Female Laptop Orchestra (FLO) to produce music for their upcoming EP, Ghost Structures, as part of the ]FairTsuku[ project, presenting female and non-binary composers from various backgrounds. 
    Between September 2021 and September 2022, FLO members: Nela Brown (Croatia), Maria Mannone (Italy), Magdalena Chudy (Poland), Ariane Stolfi (Brazil), Sonia Wilkie (Australia) and Ada Methea Hoel (Norway), connected over the network from their respective locations to record four tracks for the EP, showing that even in times of great uncertainty, creativity knows no boundaries when afforded by technology!

    Female Laptop Orchestra project, founded in 2014 by Nela Brown, connects female musicians, composers, artists, dancers, poets, engineers and scientists globally, through co-located and distributed collaborative music creation. Each performance is site-specific, mixing location-based field recordings, live coding, acoustic instruments, voice, sound synthesis, Web Audio API’s and VR environments with audiovisual streams arriving from different global locations. From stereo to immersive 3D audio (and everything in between), FLO is pushing the boundaries of technology and experimentation within the context of telematic ensemble improvisation.

    5 – Ela Orleans    – Chmura TV89

    Chmura TV 80 (Cloud in Polish) and it is made for the Theatre production called “Do Penguins Have Knees” (based on the most googled question in Poland, spoiler, they do!). As a theatre composer I use soundscapes which I like to call clouds to accompany longer monologues on stage. The cloud is to be played on a very low volume at the theatre so it is not a place to shine for a composer, but ultimately this is my favourite part of work. The sound adds more real texture to the bare and hollowness of the stage sound which I personally find irritating. Perfect silence on the stage means that I will hear people’s stomachs rumbling and grunting. it is particularly stressful for people with asthma like me, for whom silence in the theatre causes anxiety which in effect causes heavy breathing and coughing. This particular cloud is made on the base of the list of the films and programs I watched on TV in 80s and 90s. There are Polish News , Children program called Miś Uszatek, science program called Sonda, crime series called 07 Zgloś się, but also Dynasty, Benny Hill, homily from the Polish archbishop and fragment of the interview with famous Polish filosopher Władysław Tatarkiewicz.

    6 – Wulf Steel – Holding on

    An excerpt from the collection of poems Fallen. The full collection is yet to be completed but continues to ferment and grow. The excerpt here contains the poems Observing, Holding on, Downfall, Consequence and Ache which are grouped together in the collection.

    Always been a writer and always wanting to get work out there. A lover of performance, and someone who likes to think.

    “GOWO MANGO” an album of song sketches by visual artist and describer Juliana Capes,  commissioned as expanded audio description by artist Laura Aldridge,  as part of an audio interpretation of her recent monograph THINGS THAT SOAK YOU.

    Capes’s descriptions of Aldridge’s sculptures have morphed through conversation into sketches of songs, through exploration of Laura’s working methods of expanded collage, shared enthusiasm about musical influences and love of mash up and the encouragement burgeoning friendship and collaboration.

    23 August 2023  9:00 am - 10:00 am

    description
    The story goes that the cicadas were once men, before the birth of the Muses, and when the Muses were born and song appeared, some of the men were so overcome with delight that they sang and sang,forgetting food and drink, until at last unconsciously they died. From them the cicada tribe afterwards arose, and they have this gift from the Muses, that from the time of their birth they need no sustenance, but sing continually, without food or drink, until they die (…). The myth of the Cicadas appears in Plato’s The Phaedrus in a dialogue between Socrates and Phaedrus, one of his students. They meet on a riverbank in the shade of a tree occupied by a chorus of cicadas. Holger Mohaupt is an artist and filmmaker based on the East Coast of Scotland. Born in Germany, Holger studied visual communication and anthropology at the Art Academy in Hamburg, followed by a practice-led doctorate at the University of Dundee. Holger is senior lecturer in Film Studies at Liverpool John Moores University.

    description

    Blue Ecology for Future Memory playfully imagines a sci-fi exchange between an anonymous user who sings in their sleep; an “empathy-trained” AI, the Isostasy Voice CompanionTM; and the Dinoflagellate Overmind, abioluminescent, phytoplankton super-consciousness.

    The user’s hypersensitive experience ofultra-terrestrial contact in Puerto Rico becomes a whirling portal enabling thetelepathic PyrodiniumBahamense to enter, infecting Amber the TeleTher-pathistTM with the neurotoxin, Saxitoxin. In the expanded state of interspecies communication, the user receives messages through ancient, secret-containing eco-cultural technologies.

    The leaked session recording captures psycho-sonic knowledge transfer disruptions that are due to various system glitches occurring throughout the dynamic exchange, which is all of a sudden cut short.

  • Matto Zoppi - DEDALO
    23 August 2023  10:30 am - 11:00 am

    description
    All that was submerged slowly re-emerges and what remained after the flood reorganizes itself in a new form. Contaminated by our dreams and nightmares, our memories and concepts merge; what has happened to our critical thinking in this plurality?

    The highly theatrical and vocal dimensions of the writing are intertwined with biographical facts, developing a series of sound environments and narrative episodes. Daedalus imprisoned in his creation is a metaphor for the feeling of imprisonment in our climate-changing times.

    A need to seek an outlet for our grief, but also an infantile part that needs to mutate into something new.

    Italian performer, and musician. His artistic practice develops from the use of words, voice and mechanisms for sound and narrative manipulation. He is one of the founders of the Florence-based multimedia poetry collective Fumofonico and with San Giorgio Cibernetico is a finalist in 2021 of Alberto Dubito Prize for poetry and music. He worked in many contexts between theater, radio, performance art and digital media projects. His first solo work “Dedalo” is out in May 2023 for Fango Radio Editions.

    4) Dante Tanzi – Pari

    Pari is inspired by ritual-type ceremonies and, more generally, by those practices which, by modulating the quality of listening, aim to draw on particular dimensions of experience. Pari has a linear-cyclic trend that develops over six tracks and is based on the repetition of an ordered sequence of 13 female voice samples, immersed in electronic sounds. The samples include words of the Italian language and meaningless vocal expressions, of an emotional type: Prati, Con, Gheu, Pari, Oss, Alti, Se, Sol, Boi, Mmhs, Ella, Za, Onde. The words and vocal expressions are underlined and accompanied by the melodies of a synthetic wind instrument.
     
    Dante Tanzi is a composer and performer of acousmatic music. His compositions have been performed in Italy (Musica Nel Nostro Tempo, Colloquium of Music Informatics, Festival 5 Giornate, Festival Musica e Suoni, Levanto Music Festival), in Switzerland (Euromicro, Computer Music Concert), in Canada (EuCue Series), in the United Kingdom (ICMC, Sonorities), in Spain (Flix Festival, Festival Bernaola), in France (Festival Licences, Festival Futura, SIME, En Chair et En Son, Klang!, Festival Technomancie), in Colombia (BunB), in the United States (NYCEMF), in Portugal (DME) in Austria (Ars Electronica), in Argentina (Atemporànea), in Japan (OUA-EMF, ACSM116) and in Belgium (Le space du son).

    description
    Whenever I go, I can’t help but notice signs of a looming change. I eavesdrop on conversations of creatures big and small, and like me, they seem uneasy and uncertain about what’s to come. Something is in the air, dark clouds gather, winds are shifting course. Amidst the confusion and restlessness, the voices of natural and human-made worlds blend in a worrisome symphony. This piece is an ode to anticipation, to the beauty of different forms of life on the brink of the sixth mass extinction. Joining in the chorus are the American toad, northern winds, an old kettle, mr. Cat, tawny owl, crickets, domestic chickens and pigs, trumpeter swans, honey bees, truck horns, cormorants, seagulls and other elements and critters.

    Alëna Korolëva is an artist and curator, who works with sound, photo and video.
    Her sound work is focused on field recordings, acoustic ecology, soundscape studies and acousmatic composition. Her technique employs elements of documentary storytelling and experimental music.

    Everyone travels through time and we all experience it differently. Sometimes while traveling you have to wait and float in Liminal time. Those moments in between using time in the way you want. This might be waiting for a pint at the bar or waiting for one form of transport or another, sometimes being on a whatever mode of transport you are using works as a different flavour of Liminal time. At times making music can dwell within this liminal time especially with “experimental music” where you might not fully know what is happening until you listen back to a recording of what you have been working on.

    2 – Emma Margetson – Isochrone

    A work combining close-up microphone recordings of a bicycle and field recordings from the Elbe Tunnel in Hamburg, a 426m tunnel for pedestrians, bikes and cars. Drawing on the cyclic, continuous nature of the material, the evolving sounds reference the never-ending
    structures found within such spaces.

    This is a 3D spatial composition composed for 16 loudspeakers. The immersive spatial environment subtly transitions and morphs between the two sound sources: the bicycle and the tunnel. This immersive environment, with spatial transitions takes the listener on a
    journey to different places drawing on the philosophy of reality tunnels.

    Dr Emma Margetson is an acousmatic composer and sound artist. She is a Lecturer in Sound Design and Research Fellow in Audiovisual Space: Recontextualising Sound-Image Media at the University of Greenwich. Her research interests include, sound diffusion and spatialisation practices; site specific works, sound walks and installation; audience development and engagement; and community music practice. She has received a variety of awards and special mentions for her work including, first prize in the prestigious L’Espace du Son International Spatialisation Competition by INFLUX (Musiques & Recherches), klingt gut!

    3 – Serge Bulat    – Vacant Reality

    “Vacant Reality” is a sound experience designed to question our perception of reality and self versus the environment. It is meant to expand the concept, and document our thoughts and feelings on the matter.

    The project takes the listener to the depths of the mind, in the center of the experiment. The piece was recorded on a mountain in Oviedo, Spain, in nature’s isolation, from the viewpoint exposing dramatic city landscape, which provided a deeply reflective experience.
    This event became a demonstration of one’s place in society, pinpointing our “social self” which could be objectively analyzed under given conditions. We observe an external avatar created for survival in the big city or digital world. This unrealistic exaggerated persona, build with logical reasoning, has become a thick carcass hiding our true essence, disconnecting us from Reality.

    The text is a series of ideas about the subject, in which priority is given to questions rather than answers. The field recording, taken in countries including Spain, Portugal, Italy, and the USA, features imagination triggers such as sounds of transportation, various languages, and landmark noise, providing an expansion of the experiential background.

    (Released on the album “Similarities Between Fish And A Chair”, 2021)

    Serge Bulat is a Moldovan-American multidisciplinary artist who has been contributing to both European and American scenes, exploring various mediums: from music and visuals to radio and theater productions. Artists’ most notable works are “Queuelbum” (IMA award for Best Electronic Album), the immersive video game “Wurroom”, and the audiovisual installations included in conferences such as Technarte, NYCEMF, Convergence, and New Mimesis. Recent artistic activities comprise the release of the multi-format albums “Wurmenai”, “Similarities Between Fish And A Chair” (a collaboration with artists from 10 countries), and the score for the experimental game “Isolomus”.  Bulat’s ongoing project ‘Inkblot’, presented at selected festivals was recently published in the scientific journal Vortex.

    5 – Lorenzo Abattoir – Second Act: 02 Living in a Cage of Flesh

    From the album ‘The second act’ on Vice de Forme. The continuation of a metamorphosis process started one year ago with the album “Disincarnazone”. These two tracks were recorded in Torino at the end of 2022 during some sessions of constant reiteration of breathing techniques and imitation of animal sounds into an amplified environment.

    Lorenzo Abattoir is a sound artist based in Torino (IT). A key element of his work is the relationship between spiritual practices and unusual methods of audio processing, mainly focusing on the use of microphones as a medium for the amplification of an act. He explores the boundaries between sound and noise using breathing techniques, bodily sounds and different kinds of amplified objects as instruments to structures his performances.

The phrase ”Life is beautiful” is being said in seven different languages, and I mixed it with recordings from all continents except South America (which I’ve never visited) to create a short prologue for this radio show about auditive representations of life and culture around the globe.

    Patric Simmerud (°1963) is a composer and sound artist based in Stockholm, Sweden. Classically trained and with wide influences, my work as a composer range from contemporary art music – including electroacoustic and radiophonic pieces, chamber music and music for full orchestra – to soundscapes and music for film. As a sound artist, I have explored various artistic disciplines such as installation, performance, videoart. My work has been internationally performed and included in various art exhibitions. In addition, I lead the music and score engraving company MakeMyDayMusic.

  • Diarmuid MacDiarmada - Channeling
    23 August 2023  2:00 pm - 2:45 pm

    description
    ‘Channeling’ was originally created in 2014 for the Cowtown festival in The Joinery gallery, Dublin. The work is an homage to the mysterious ‘number stations’ that broadcast recorded loops of words, letters and snippets of melody on long wave radio channels. The purpose of these recordings is still not known; it is believed they are possibly coded messages but it is unclear who might be the author or the intended recipient. The work also nods to the BBC Radiophonic Workshop and to Robert Ashley’s ‘Automatic Writing’ and to odd moments in rock’n’roll. The work was revised in 2023.

    Diarmuid MacDiarmada is a multimedia artist based in Sligo, Ireland. He has been active since the early 90’s in a host of guises and bands as well as in theatre and film. He is currently active in the group Rún and working on a video project dealing with artificial intelligence as A Bad Visitor.

  • Olli Aarni – Tallentamisesta
    23 August 2023  3:30 pm - 4:00 pm

    description

    Tallentamisesta is a radio essay, that contemplates ways of preserving things. Is it possible to preserve things and access them again in the future? How can something so complex as an acoustic sound or a thought be saved in any kind of format? The essay is mostly in Finnish, and it is written, narrated and sound designed by Olli Aarni, except for an English passage that’s narrated by Mia Tarkela.

    Olli Aarni (born 1988) is an experimental sound and music artist based in Helsinki, Finland. His work has been published on LPs, CDs and cassette tapes in four continents, and in addition he has made sound poetry, interactive web-based sound pieces, installations and radio work.

  • Antrianna Moutoula - Much (scored out) love, A. live from The Creative Lab, CCA
    23 August 2023  4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

    description
    You are welcome to join Antrianna in the Creative Lab at CCA for this performance.

    Having as a starting point a series of letters from her family archive, in Much love (scored out), A. Antrianna Moutoula talks and writes nonstop in order to create an overload of words, thoughts, lyrics, memories, and citations, all seeking their own linearity.

    During her residency in the Creative Lab of CCA Glasgow, Moutoula will continue her research on autotheory (the merging of autobiography and theory) by reworking the recently discovered letters of her grandmothers through the performance practice of nonstop languaging.

    Antrianna Moutoula (GR, 1994) lives and works in Amsterdam. Primarily language-based her work spans performance, film, radio, and writing. Driven by the desire to articulate the continuous present, her ongoing research focuses on nonstop languaging, an autotheoretical practice in which she performs streams of consciousness by tracing her thoughts through language simultaneously in spoken and written form. By engaging with this practice in various contexts, she aims to contribute to a renegotiation of the confinements of knowledge production within artistic academic discourse. Always seeking ephemeral encounters with necessary others, she explores nonstop languaging as a biweekly radio performance at Radio WORM. Moutoula’s practice is currently supported by the Artist Start Grant of the Mondriaan Fonds (NL).

  • Velvachell - to yourself
    23 August 2023  5:00 pm - 5:30 pm

    description

    An audio collage made up of layers of found and manipulated sound, captured and created at a residency in the small town of Jilotepec and its neighbouring Mexico City. Amongst the noise and the voices that the artist encountered are melodic experiments created in response to the wonderfully precarious environment. DIY instruments, software and pedals act as a blanket to the voice notes sent in Spanish that investigate the unanswered question of why so many female artists find themselves creating in Mexico.

    Velvachell is an artist and musician working with visual and sound collage. She collects the peculiar fragments of our everyday whilst recreating imagined memories. She recently presented a series of sound works and photographic transfers titled ‘oddities of the waking hour’ at COBERTIZO, Mexico and this audio piece presented for Radiophrenia was originally part of an installation and solo exhibition at Listen Gallery, Glasgow. She has also exhibited at Street Level Photoworks and Glasgow Open House Arts Festival in 2021.

    1) Ezio Piermattei – Turismo dentale 3 
     
    From the album  ‘Turismo dentale’.
     
     
    2) Guillaume Loizillon – Ordinary times

    Ordinary Times is a piece which, under the mimetic aspect of the sounding the collective breath, envisages more buried dimensions. The piece uses material made from field recordings made during strike movements, outdoors and in public transport. They map different moments of street demonstrations in recent years with their cries, their slogans and their spontaneous music: songs, percussion, batucadas etc. Mixed with these edited and transformed recordings is a set of electronic sounds that build a noisy, melodic or uniform counterpoint. The echoes of the conflict finally drown in the resonant distances of the corridors and tunnels.

    Guillaume LOIZILLON lives and works in Paris. Composer and musician attracted by many other forms, he remains independent and constantly attracted to new experiments and artistic developments. Electronic music, sound arts, improvisation, poetry, installations, intermedia encounters, net art, etc. He was a lecturer in the music department of the University of Paris 8, director of the UFR arts aesthetic philosophy and co-founder of the independent label Trace Label. He has worked with, among others: Bony Bikaye, Merce Cunningham Dance Company, Valère Novarina, Julien Blaine, Joël Hubaut, Jacques Donguy, Tom Johnson, Esther Ferrer, Costis Triandaphylou, Barney Wilen, Hector Zazou…

  • Action Pyramid - Plant Playback
    23 August 2023  6:00 pm - 6:30 pm

    description
    The sounds of aquatic plant photosynthesis interpreted. Taking inspiration from the mixtape format, where versioning and remixing are common tropes, Plant Playback presents sections of subaquatic source material, each initially in a raw unprocessed state, followed by sonic diversions exploring the inherent rhythmic and harmonic properties of these sounds. Interview excerpts with researchers specialising in freshwater bioacoustics, as well as computer-processed interpretations of the sonic data, such as audio-to-MIDI capture, further illustrate a personal quest to understand and appreciate the complexity and strange unknowable nature of these sounds. With special thanks to acoustic ecologists Camille Desjonquères, Gea van de Lee, and Jack Greenhalgh for their time and expertise on the subject.   A list of the sound sources for ‘Plant Playback’ can be found on our website at radiophrenia.scot/artist/commissions/action-pyramid Tom Fisher is a sound artist and musician based in the marshy edge-lands of North East London. Working primarily under the name Action Pyramid his projects vary from site-specific sound installation and headphone based works for galleries and museums, to experimental radio works, music and documentary. With a background in electronic music and audio production his creative practice involves using sound and composition to re-examine and reconsider our surroundings, looking at the relationship between ourselves and the nonhuman, and our part in the wider ecologies of landscapes. With a multitude of recording techniques, often aimed at exploring and re-interpreting the seemingly unnoticed and unheard elements of our surroundings, he looks to present compositional and spatial expressions of these acoustic phenomena in a way that attempts to offer up alternative perspectives regarding perceptions of scale, hierarchical bias and the interconnectedness of living things.

  • Lise Lebleux - Ces lieux d’à côté
    23 August 2023  6:30 pm - 7:00 pm

    description
    The gestures and anecdotes of a beekeeper, the sound of a flooded chasm, the dampness of a tunnel, snatches of underground voices, a man preparing for winter, rebellious radio waves, an observant with a passion for animal photography: all these proposed recordings aim to project the listener into the specific acoustic conditions of each place. These selected places may be on the periphery, rarely inhabited or visited, or sometimes even inaccessible.

    Lise Lebleux lives and works in Paris. By using field-recording as her main artistic medium she creates sound topologies of different spaces, which are accessible for the listener only through the listening experience: each sound piece is the result and audiophonic record of a specific and unique space with its present and given condition(s). Most recently she has been composing and broadcasting radiophonic pieces for *Duuu Radio Paris and Montez Press Radio New York.   She is currently working on a new commission for ORF Ö1 Kunstradio, Vienna.

  • Mark Vernon - Magneto Mori Brussels
    23 August 2023  7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

    description
    Magneto Mori: Brussels is a process-based sound work that investigates the collective memory of Brussels residents, intertwining them with the environmental sounds of the city to weave new and unexpected narratives. It is an exploration of tape recording as a form of memory storage – and the deliberate distressing, eroding and deterioration of present day sounds to disrupt their chronology; historicising the present and fast-forwarding the effects of time. Contrasting and combining these sounds with higher fidelity recordings draws attention to the different substrata of time that are an intrinsic (though largely unacknowledged) part of any non-realtime sound production. The intention here was to create a ‘memory tape’ that acts as an audio portrait of the city and its inhabitants. This involved asking people to recall their earliest or most vivid memories and recording them direct to open reel tape. On the other side of the tape everyday sounds of the city were captured. Through a series of processes that mirror the complexity and frailty of human memory this ‘memory tape’ was then fragmented, muddled, corroded, partially erased with magnets, buried in the ground for 10 days and finally excavated and reconstituted. During this process sounds and memories are literally erased and the remains are spliced back together in a random sequence. The end result is a cut-up collage of fragmented voices and distorted field recordings. In some instances I chose to ‘re-construct’ parts of the missing memories using copies made of the original recordings. In counterpoint, a semi-autobiographical text by Elodie A. Roy reflecting on her parents memories of Brussels is interspersed throughout the piece appearing as a series of answerphone messages. Produced during a one-month residency at Q-O2, Brussels in August, 2022. Commissioned by Kunstradio for Ö1 ORF, Austria. First broadcast at 22.05 CET, 21st May, 2023. Narration written, performed and recorded by Elodie A. Roy. All other recordings by Mark Vernon. Composed by Mark Vernon. Featuring the voices of Henry Andersen, Diana Duta, Julia Eckhardt, Nika Breithaupt, Stuart McGregor, Amber Meulenijzer, Pauline Mikó, Caroline Profanter and Mark Vernon. Thank you to the participants, everyone at Q-O2, Elisabeth Zimmerman, Elodie A. Roy, Barry Burns and Manja Ristić.

    1 – Cristina Marras – Sardinia, which is like nowhere

    Inspired by my experience of growing up in Sardinia surrounded by stories about D.H. Lawrence’s visit and his book, in with he gives a myopic and insensitive portrayal of Sardinia and its inhabitants. Yet, people here still celebrate him and boast with plaques his passage. I embarked on a journey to retrace his footsteps, exploring breath-taking vineyards, and, along the way, I encounter Stefano Soi, a pioneer with awe-inspiring dedication to the land who embraces old traditions while planning and creating a sustainable future. A story about neo-colonialism and the importance of preserving traditional practices in the face of modernisation.

    English is my second language and my Italian accent is for me a political act. I have lived 8 years in Berlin and 23 in Melbourne, and some of my stories have been produced by the ABC. I moved back home 7 years ago. My name is Cristina Marras and although I have been telling stories for as long as I can remember, I am self-taught, so sometimes my ideas don’t come out the way I hear them in my mind. This doesn’t prevent me to tell them anyway.

    2 – Wohnen – Pan-fried Mushrooms, Algae Bubbles and the Heart Chant

    This piece is a collection of sounds from a workshop I hosted that celebrated women and non-binary people in experimental music by practising some of Pauline Oliveros’ sonic meditations. These sounds are woven in with field recordings from a different project called ‘con-crete’ that explored the entangled nature of site through the more-than-human voices that make up place identity. Together I feel they inspire a gentle conversation between the listener and the many voices that become audible when we choose to listen. This piece was curated for radio as an exciting and accessible setting to develop an awareness of one another.

    I am a graduate of the Sound Arts MA at LCC and come from a background in Geography at University of Glasgow. Currently I want to develop my career in sound arts and explore radio as a medium of presenting my work. My practise traverses boundaries of sound, ecology and geography as I explore the testimonies of our more-than-human symbionts. By using field recordings and experimenting with playful interactive mediums of listening, my work seeks to challenge the way in which we interact with the world in, amongst and around us.

    6 – Magda Lampropoulo – Two Ears Are Not Enough

    The “Two Ears Are Not Enough” is a work associated with hearing problems seeking a different empathic experience of the audience with hearing loss. Undefined everyday sounds, coming from unknown sources, can cause confusion, letting the imagination relate them with things or happenings from different sources. This piece was created for “SHAWR” Space21 Radio Art Festival in Iraqi Kurdistan and was broadcasted online on December 15th, 2020.

    Magda Lampropoulou (b. 1977 Athens) is a sculptress and sound artist based in Athens, Greece. Her work engages with diverse, expressive media including audio, performance, sculpture, installations, and video. She works with the medium of sound, creating artworks associated with hearing problems, seeking a different empathic concurrency of the audience. She holds a degree in Sculpture (MArt) from the Athens School of Fine Arts (2004). Her participation in exhibitions, festivals, artistic radio podcasts and residencies (“Tectonics Athens21”, Onassis Cultural Centre/ “Works for Radio #4”, The Lake Radio/ Space21 Radio Art Festival, Kurdistan), has resulted in her identifying her work methodology.

    7 – Craig Hunter – Staple

    Sometimes ideas get stuck in your head and demand attention for them to be set free. Likewise, revisiting the site of painful memories can help with personal trauma. Using storytelling and field recordings, Staple invites the listener to share in this process, closing a chapter while acknowledging the impressions left behind.

    Craig Hunter is a writer, actor and DJ, compiling a monthly show for Radio Buena Vida of beatless soundscapes, neotonal compositions and spoken word. Previous Radiophrenia contributions have related to mushroom foraging, featuring field recordings and spoken word, while his work has also been broadcast on Glasgow Doors Open Day Radio.

    This piece was commissioned as a response to the 1988 performance BledEdge by Alastair MacLennan. Sections of an interview with MacLennan are interspersed with Bale’s meditations on the concept of shared memory, or even memory itself, in relation both to a deliberately evanescent form such as performance or such a slippery concept such as history, or “era”. It culminates in an awkward late night street corner conversation with a sardonic ghost, voiced by the artist Nicola Woodham.

    description
    Produced by Pete Hazell

    Radio Limbo offers an escape to its own world through plundered airwaves and curated music. Made with 90% recycled material (from irresponsibly sourced samples) this new mixtape is a compilation of the cut and paste highlights that bejewel our monthly shows.
    It marks five years of our residency on Bristol’s Noods Radio, and is packed with hallucinatory skits, plunderphonic sketches, music edits and playful collage that seek to transport, amuse and maybe gently disturb the listener.
     

    Pete Hazell has produced and hosted Radio Limbo for 5 years, and alongside creative collaborator Sean Lee, runs the cassette label Limbo Tapes.  As well as producing radio curiosities, Pete and Sean are musicians in their own right, making music as Titus 12 and Dive Reflex Service respectively. In 2022 they joined forces as World Of Repetitive Music for a collaborative album.
    Their music, and Radio Limbo material is available via Limbo Tapes on Bandcamp.

    1 – Sam Francis – Islanding

    This audio is an extract from the text written during and after 24 hours spent upon the Welsh Island of Flat Holm situated in the midst of the murky waters of the Severn estuary.  It is a rough edit; like the sea. It is an exploration of what it is to be islanded, and disoriented in the middle of the ocean. 

    My work broadly takes the form of an expanded drifting practice – as an exploration of everyday places and wilderness spaces as both inspiration and collaborators. Through approaching different contexts and environments with the intention of an explorer, I attempt to uncover the spirit,  and real or imagined mythologies associated with a place.

    https://samfrancisco.co.uk/Flat-Holm-Island

    2 – Mel Bakewell – Keep your protest 2019

    In September 2019, ‘hundreds of thousands’ of people across Australia turned out for a school strike for climate. In Adelaide, a small capital city in South Australia, I caught a lurching tram into town to capture the sounds of the protest. On the tram were young and old families, crammed in next to grumpy commuters who tells a mum to ‘forget your protest.’ In the square, we hear helicopters, a crowd marshal, a choir practicing, a First Nations man screaming into a megaphone. The protest, made up of lots of young people, makes its way to parliament house.

    Mel is an audio producer from Australia, on Kaurna country. She is currently based in Naarm, Melbourne. In 2023, she is a participant in Signal Boost, an audio mentorship program. In 2020, was the winner of the CBAA National Features and Documentary Series and in 2019 was selected to participate in Australia’s first Transom Travelling Workshop, a week-long radio storytelling intensive. She has made creative audio work for community radio, ABC Radio National, and The Wheeler Centre. She has a background in law, community development and visual arts.

    3 – Chin Ting Chan – Whispers of Time

    Whispers of Time explores 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. Throughout the composition, one hears layers of gestures move through a three-dimensional sonic space, emulating as well as alternating between hyper-real and surreal soundscapes. The multi-layer projection of the sound stage adds much depth to the music, and creates a sound world existed only in one’s imagination. The juxtaposition of contrasting events in various lengths eventually becomes an inspiration for the title.

    Hong Kong composer Chin Ting CHAN has been a guest composer at festivals such as IRCAM’s ManiFeste, ISCM World Music Days Festival, and UNESCO International Rostrum of Composers. He has worked with ensembles such as City Chamber Orchestra of Hong Kong, Ensemble intercontemporain (France), Ensemble Metamorphosis (Serbia), Ensemble Signal (U.S.), eighth blackbird (U.S.), Hong Kong New Music Ensemble, and Mivos Quartet (U.S.), with performances in more than twenty countries. He is an Assistant Professor of Music Composition at Ball State University.        http://www.chintingchan.com

    4 – Liam Dougherty – When your house is on fire, you don’t read poetry, and you don’t sing a folk song

    This work is a sound collage of samples from a ‘feedback piano’ and samples from the so-called Number stations of short-wave radio. As the product of defunct and ongoing military complexes, these represent, to me, the invisible sound sources that haunt the global airwaves. These signals are conceptually represented within the piano: feedback is created via guitar pickups and an amplifier positioned on either side of the piano’s soundboard to force the strings to vibrate. This pre-recorded material is manipulated to extended the capabilities of a piano so that there remains only subtle resemblance to the instrument.

    Liam Dougherty (b. 1996) is an American composer and media artist. He works between spaces such as concert music, electroacoustic music, and installation. His practice often incorporates instrumental design and found-sounds/objects/footage situated in relationship to elements such as drone, noise, and psychoacoustics. Recent projects include: a series of installations for a deconstructed piano and feedback, and a series of audiovisual works utilizing archival footage of American nuclear weapons tests.          liamdougherty.net

    5 – Jacks Broken Head – Error Flow V

    Part of a series of soundscapes made as part of a broader project investigating creative failure. In 2022, Failure, Understanding, Care (& Kunst) interviewed different artists on the topic of failure; this series of sound works explore failure sonically and was included within the podcast episodes. Error Flow I-VI are created from the failures, errors, glitches, mistakes and waste material from the interview recordings.

    Jacks Broken Head (real name Ruth Aitken, or Ruth & Alexander) is an artist working in Tromsø, northern Norway, working with sound in addition to digital and analogue film, installation, curation and chaos research. They have a BA(Hons) in Time-Based Art from Duncan of Jordanstone (2012) and an MA in Contemporary Art from Tromsø Academy of Contemporary Art (2018).

    6 – Damian Anache – Territorio    

    “The map is not the territory”, “This is not a pipe”, and this piece is not a soundscape either, much less music. Where does the water run in Patagonia and where does it go? Does Calamuchita’s water fall on any surface or from where does it emerge? No matter how hard I try to impose a geometric shape on the nature of the sounds I attempt to capture, they overlap my cuts and technological manipulations until the birds sing because they don’t want to stop.

    Damián Anache (1981) is an Argentine artist based in Buenos Aires. His sound pieces and videos expose personal reflections on the perception of time through the exploration of micro-details, noises and geometry. As a teacher and researcher, he works at the National University of Tres de Febrero and the National University of Quilmes. He has compiled the book “Tekné: Apropiaciones desde el arte actual” (Fundación Alfonso y Luz Castillo, 2019).

    7 – Dariusz Mazurowski – Exhibition I

    Written as an audio installation. Several audio loops of different lengths can be played without synchronization, so that the same combination of sounds is cannot be repeated over a long period of time. This version, created for CD album Back in Time (2013), contains only one cycle of each layer. Recorded at the De eM Studio between 1999 and 2001. It’s entirely digital piece with various voices – the only audio source were recordings from various satellite TV stations, some of which were encoded, which caused the sound to be distorted. Everything was then digitally processed to get various textures.

    Dariusz Mazurowski is a Polish electroacoustic music composer and performer born and residing in Gdansk. While the majority of his compositional activity has focused on acousmatic works, he has also composed instrumental music in conjunction with electronics, audio installations and improvised electroacoustic music.  https://deemstudio.com/

    description
    If parrhesia once described the bravery of a solo voice against a single force. Then a multitudinous oppression should be met with a chorus of dissent. A collective jamming of the signal; a co-produced glitch, a dissonant polyrhythm set against a discordant song. In defiance of the individualisation of our call the response to repression should be played amongst allies.
    A rehearsal of a people yet to come in a place still being built, an unspokenword night of joyous resistance, of reverberation and resonance, of Social Parrhesia As Musical JAM.

  • Absolute Value of Noise and Anna Friz - Morse Mountain
    24 August 2023  12:00 am - 4:00 am

    description
    The mountain sleeps; dreams stone. Festooned with power lines and communications towers, striated by long-ago meltwater and creeks that have since evaporated, blown bald by the prevailing winds. Some day, come earthrise or landfall, the mountain will walk out into the sea. Until then, micro-movements in the sediment and rock are its uneasy speech, while the antennae atop its massive breathing shoulders continue to call and respond.

    The piece is inspired by coastal mountains that have been implicated in human long distance communications and listening, whether occupied by overland telephone and telegraph cables, military monitoring stations, radio and acoustic beacons for ships and airplanes, or 5G cell towers. Morse Mountain considers the ephemeral human occupations of signal space as they overlay mineral durations; fireflies buzzing around ancient beings that have merely paused to rest.

    Anna Friz and Absolute Value of Noise (Peter Courtemanche) are Canadian sound and radio artists. Anna Friz creates self-reflexive radio for broadcast, installation and performance. Her compositions reflect upon public media culture, environment and infrastructure (human and extra-human, acoustic, and electro-magnetic), time perception, and speculative fiction. Absolute Value of Noise creates radio and outdoor installations. He likes to work with “gadgetry” – custom turntables, lamp filaments, wire coils, high voltage ionizers, magnetic transceivers, and “little electronic brains” that observe and respond to local phenomena. His outdoor works are a comment on bio-diversity, extinction, and fragility.

    fugitive frequency: AlanisObomsawin, “Our people can be themselves and feel good about it.” (season 2,episode 4, April 2022)

    This episode is an audio portrait of Alanis Obomsawin, an Indigenous Abenaki filmmaker, singer, activist and “national treasure” from Turtle Island/Canada. We spoke online late in February 2021 with reference to a major survey exhibition of Alanis’ life and work, “The Children Have to Hear Another Story”, 12 February – 18 April 2021, Haus derKulturen der Welt Berlin.

    Many thanks to Lilli Heinemann from HKW and Michael Shu from the National Film Board of Canada for making this episode possible.

    fugitive radio was initiated by Sumugan Sivanesan in 2020 to research migrant, queer and anticolonial issues and music in Helsinki, in collaboration with not only media arts association, Pixelache Helsinki, and generously supported by Kone Foundation. Since 2021 the fugitive frequency podcast has broadcast on the first Tuesday of every month with CoLaboRadio on Freie Radios–Berlin Brandenburg. It is also available on Helsinki Open Waves and lumbung radio/Station of Commons. Now into its third season, the fugitive frequency podcast has become a vehicle to record interviews, document events and performances, share music and collaborate with others curious about radio as a research method.

    1 – Roberto D’Ugo Jr – The Stranger In The Nest

    An encrypted message sent into outerspace. COSMIC SILENCE: speechs fragments circulating in a estereophonic eternal return, just numbers (voices of unsuspecting sound operators). ARTE POVERA: tape loop voices manipulation; rolls of tapes wandering through 3 ANALOG RECORDERS, reverberations and noise STATIC, shorwaves textures. Feedbacks and mixing in real time. A melancholic minimalist composition played on toy keyboard CASSIO, recorded in a cassette tape, in the bright acoustics of a tiled bathroom (my old bathroom). Radio Art by Roberto D’Ugo Jr, inspired by the homonymous visual poem by Marcos Gross.

    Roberto D’Ugo is a Brazilian artist-researcher dedicated to radio art. He creates works that explore interfaces between magic, technique and art. Based on listening to everyday life, his aesthetic investigation dialogues with surrealism. The ritualistic repetition of sound residues is a characteristic of his work. Some of his pieces have been broadcasted on CHIGIANAradioarte (Siena), Radiophrenia (Glasgow), Datscha Radio (Berlin), Radio CASo (Buenos Ayres) and Rádio Cultura FM (São Paulo). PhD in Arts from the Arts Institute of the UNESP. Professor of radio at Faculdade Cásper Líbero.

    2 – Diana Duta – Ballade XIa

    Ballades Infidèles is a research group working around the ‘Ballades en jargon’ – eleven poems composed by XVth century poet Françoys Villon and written in the secret tongue of the Coquillard·es, a posse of French rogues. These ballads repurpose medieval language to narrate social underworlds in code. They invite to a reflection on the possibility of otherness and the estrangement within a ’same’ language. In these excerpts, a translation of Ballade XI is modulated through a landscape of street vendors’ cries. With Simon Asencio, Diana Duta, Chloe Chignell, Cee Fülleman, Loucka Fiagan, camille gerenton, Anouchka Oler, etaïnn zwer et al.

    3 – Ana María Romano G. – El sol festivo

    El sol festivo (2021-2022) is a soundscape commissioned by Brazilian sound artist and radio artist Renata Roman. I recorded on December 27, 2021, in the jurisdiction of Río Frío Occidental in Tabio, Cundinamarca, Colombia, at 1:00 pm. The edition was made in January 2022 for the WebSYN Radio program: Paysages Sonores d’Amerique Latine: une proposition de Renata Roman (aired from February 3rd to the 16th, 2022, Nimes, France).

    Composer, interdisciplinary sound artist and improviser. Her creative interests converge at the intersection between gender, sexualities, sound and technology, listening, soundscape, space, the body, experimentation and the political dimensions of creative. Such interests have allowed her to work in acoustic, electroacoustic media, creation in fields such as installations, video, performing arts, podcasts, radio. She considers collective and collaborative work fundamental in all the areas of her life. Currently she teaches at Universidad El Bosque. She coordinates Plataforma Feminista En Tiempo Real and she is the co-founder of Paisajistas Sonoras América Latina. She is part of Red de Compositoras Latinoamericanas redcLa.

    4 – Zo Bailly – Hungry My Handsome Man

    Last year, I moved into a house I found on Facebook Marketplace. I met the roommates, signed the lease, and on the first night, I opened the door and Augie was there. He was really still in the hallway and I said: “oh”. My Handsome Man is a piece about my relationship to sharing space and about what happens when the sharing goes wrong. It’s about control and the struggle to collect evidence in your own home. There’s a sprinkle of horror, a sprinkle of fur and a sprinkle of self-reflection.

    My name is Zo Bailly (they/them). I work on audio docs about: inner-landscapes, capitalism, crushes, homes and strangers. I grew up in Canberra, Australia within a French-American family. I am most interested in collaborative projects where a thoughtful process > a perfect product. My work has appeared on: On Air Fest, WMPG, CJLO and at the Art Matters Festival. I am a recent graduate of the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies in Portland, Maine. Currently learning, making and keeping warm in Montréal.

    5 – Serge Bulat & Sean Ellis Hussey – EME(say)RGE

    The piece is a part of ‘Emerging Character of Identity’ project, to be premiered in Chicago’s Constellation performance hub in 2023.
    The project explores the depth of identity and becoming via sound and performance experimentation, promising a cathartic experience.

    Serge Bulat is a multi-disciplinary artist, hailing from the Moldovan-Ukrainian border town. After experiments with various art forms, immigrated to the US and pursued a career in music. Known for the IMA-winning ‘Queuelbum’, psychological installation ‘Inkblot’ & the experimental game ‘Wurroom’. In recent years traveled to 13 countries, collecting signature & disappearing sounds which are the basis for his sonic experimentations.

    6 – Stephen Lilly – The First

    The First is a short play with minimal dialog whose narrative unfolds through amplified sound.  Composed in celebration of my first anniversary, The First is both a musing on the beginning of a relationship as well as a study of the sounds associated with the traditional first anniversary gift.

    Stephen Lilly is a DC-based composer, performer, audio engineer, and amateur poet. His music ranges from “dark” and “demanding” (The Retriever) to “‘performance art’…the sort of thing you are glad to have experienced without wanting to revisit” (The Washington Post). He can be microtonally abstract or theatrically satiric; he composes chamber music for friends and friends of friends as well as fixed media works for nobody in particular. Publications: Computer Music Journal, ink&coda, Organised Sound, Performance Research, Perspectives of New Music and SCI. Recordings: SEAMUS, SCI, C7 Music, and New Mexico Contemporary Ensemble.

    7 – Wulf Steel – Consequence

    An excerpt from the collection of poems Fallen. The full collection is yet to be completed but continues to ferment and grow. The excerpt here contains the poems Observing, Holding on, Downfall, Consequence and Ache which are grouped together in the collection.

    Always been a writer and always wanting to get work out there. A lover of performance, and someone who likes to think.

    8 – Joanne Matthews – at first and then (remixed)

    Remixed audio from ‘at first, and then’ a video and sound work. At first, and then (remixed) is a speculative fiction work set in a salty world, a collage of poetry, sound and silence. Part of a continuing project looking at a future, world, parallel, time  alternate, dimension, through a salted lens, set in an over salinated Portobello, Edinburgh, the work layers a 35 voice choir with crawling digital sounds, harking to sci-fis from the past projecting somewhere into the future.

    Joanne Matthews is an artist and producer working collaboratively across performance, moving image, sound and installation. Their work is shaped by social-political contexts, research into deep ecology and queer speculative fiction.

  • Radio LOOS - On Creativity during Pregnancy
    24 August 2023  9:00 am - 9:30 am

    description
    Traditionally it has been challenging for women to secure a career in the arts and becoming a mother could mean giving that up entirely. However, many women also feel a new surge of creativity during pregnancy and when entering motherhood, and there is scientific evidence that suggests that the physical changes brought on by motherhood promotes a new sort of creativity. This episode of Radio LOOS is an informal exploration of this topic, with contributions from Tatiana Kolganova, Asami Kiuchi Oishi, and Maya Felixbrodt. Curated and produced by Leonie Roessler for Studio LOOS, with funding from the Gemeente Den Haag.
     
    Produced at https://www.loosdenhaag.com/

    Leonie Roessler – Composer, performer and radio maker raised in Germany and the US, now based in The Hague, Netherlands.  Leonie captures her environment with field recordings, which she uses for radio pieces, sound installations, and instrumental compositions. She runs the radio branch of Studio LOOS in The Hague, has a monthly show called Tales in Sound on CAMP radio, and co-manages Iranian record label Noise à Noise. Her works have been released through Musica Dispersa (Spain/UK), and Noise á Noise (Iran), Biodiversitàs, Syrphe  and have been physically archived in the British Library.

  • Blanc Sceol - Luminous
    24 August 2023  9:30 am - 10:00 am

    description
    Field recordings with interventions made over summer solstice on St Agnes, Scilly Isles. These remote and sparsely inhabited islands allow for undisturbed natural radio recordings (using Stephen P. McGreevy VLF/ELF receiver) picking up sferics from the magnetosphere, while hydrophones navigate the bubbles of a rock pool. On the shore, we practice ‘Expelling the Demons’ (Pauline Oliveros, 1971) in the gloaming light of the longest day, alongside the voices of herring gulls and northern wheateaters. In the dark of a cave we explore shifting tones with voice and a Peter Blasser ‘solar sounder’, (Tocante Phashi), day-charged by the solstice sun for night-time rock-reflected sound scribing. All recordings made by Stephen Shiell & Hannah White, with additional sound from Lucy White during ‘Expelling the Demons’. 

    Blanc Sceol are artist duo Stephen Shiell & Hannah White. Their practice has emerged and expanded throughout their years of working together across performance, composition, participatory actions, deep listening facilitation, and somatic gatherings. They create recorded works and performances that have been described as ‘transcendent’ ‘other-worldly’ and ‘ethereal’, reflecting attempts to expand themselves, through listening and sound, beyond their physical limits and to extend this personal/performance practice into the collective. Their compositions, interventions and performances express their experience of place, anchored in what is found in a landscape but re-imagined into new territories.

  • indri - Convergence: Water
    24 August 2023  10:00 am - 10:30 am

    description

    This is a concept album about convergent evolution in sound. The Earth has beenmaking sounds since it was formed, and in that time, all the sounds we haveheard have become more and more unique. This album honours, recognises andcelebrates the ways in which things have come to sound and how similar they canbe whether above or below the water.

    My name is R Beuzeville, I work under the name indri, as well as my own name. Iam a studying ecologist who has been making sound projects for several years. Iwork predominantly with field recordings that I record myself all overAustralia, both above and below the water. I am interested in the way thatsound exists in the natural world and the differences in the way that we andother species utilise and experience the sonic world.

    1 – Ela Orleans – Jeudi

    Made for the film by French artist Michel Zumpf on the basis of The Man Who Was Thursday: A Nightmare is a 1908 novel by G. K. Chesterton. The book has been described as a metaphysical thriller.The film is a two hour hauntological  tour de force between Paris and London, full of photographs, cinematic impressions, portraits of actors both amateur and professional who read or recite fragments of Chesterton’s thriller or other related pieces of literature. A true masterpiece you might not be lucky enough to see as the artist nurses his mystery and obscurity.

    2  – Camille Hummel – Outside

    They are alone on one side or the other of the bars. The radio waves allow them to hold back a little longer.

    Camille Hummel is a young french sound artist, working on ecology and societal topics. She likes to use sounds as tiny pieces of paper, trying to mix up everything, words, voices, fieldrecording, and sound-design to express herself. Besides, she does documentaries and writes stories for TV and video games.

    https://camillehummel.com/

    3 – GLAP COLLECTIVE – Neon

    GLAP COLLECTIVE’s experimental writing for radio mixes narrative snippets of a dissolving fictional identity with abstracted noises, vocalizations and outdoor ambient sounds, presenting a sonic overlay of human and unearthly harmonics. Peppered with juddering and jumping words, this collectively authored transmission may or may not resemble an unpredictable data exchange in a nebulous dispersal into radio broadcasts. We are interested in what being part of a union does to an individual. Is it a space where one can speak louder, be heard by more ears through a multiplication of sound? Dialling a re-tuning of our collective listening experience.

    John Hughes, Liz Murray, Simon Rattigan and Mia Taylor work collectively as GLAP COLLECTIVE. They make artworks combining the technologies of social media and robotics using text, sound, image and video. At the intersection between art and writing, with emphasis on how text might exist in a more expanded field, our work is critically engaged with the dissolution of historical distinctions between books, files, and artworks.

    4 – Diana Duta – A reading of Tulips by Sylvia Plath in Tour & Taxis park, Brussels

    The tulips are too excitable, it is winter here.
    Look how white everything is, how quiet, how snowed-in.  
    I am learning peacefulness, lying by myself quietly
    As the light lies on these white walls, this bed, these hands.  
    I am nobody; I have nothing to do with explosions.  
    I have given my name and my day-clothes up to the nurses  
    And my history to the anesthetist and my body to surgeons.

    5 – Mathias Guilbaud – Voies Urbaines: Rue Sainte-Catherine
     
    Sainte-Catherine is a small street in Toulouse, France, close to my apartment. Attracted by its construction works, I decided to spend a few months recording and composing with the sounds of the street. Vibrant sounds, people working, engines, rhythms coiled inside barriers, so many textures depict the metamorphoses of our urban spaces. Tickling and shifting our listening, the sounds find a way to express themselves so that they can be heard, so that they unveil our cities and our relationships with them.

    With a background in film studies, Mathias Guilbaud likes to work and question the way sound can awaken the senses and question our relationship with spaces. It is through this practice combining documentary, acousmatic and phonographic composition, that he creates sound pieces where living spaces and intimate stories intertwine. Cities represent a privileged listening ground where he questions our relationship to public spaces and urban planning. Mathias works for theatre companies, community radios and cinema.

    6 – Francisco Godinez Galay – 60 secs Radio 153: Mexican Fantasy

    A dreamlike construction of a Mexican soundscape, based on real records from the Bosques de Chapultepec anda barrel organ in the Zócalo of Mexico City.
     
    7 – LANE/LOUISE – ode to apollo

    This work is inspired by the ambient noise of the apollo xiii mission, which we sampled then played along to using a nord rack, arturia microfreak, guitar and flangers. the mission audio is from day 7/7, returning to earth, ground elapsed time: 130:11:25:38, via https://apolloinrealtime.org/13/, with special thanks to ben feist for apollo in real time concept, research and restoration.

    LANE/LOUISE is a duo based in Tkaronto/Toronto, Canada/Turtle Island consisting of amateur musician and group drone collaborator, CORINNE and her partner, artist and musician CHRIS who also performs as iderdown, a one person electronic, ambient, experimental act, and who forms one third of the band WITHIN.

    24 August 2023  12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

    description
    ‘Like a telepath’ pieces together a week-long journey of remote recordings. ‘Emitting’ and ‘receiving’ from a small island and from a city simultaneously, in order to mimick a radio device. To do this, we would start the recording of our parallel transmissions at the same moment in time, using the distance between us as a space to connect. What you hear is a photograph of a thought, a long, windy line tracing a series of synchronous compositions. Cover a moment, remain standing, crumpling paper in your hands. A phone rings – s in the past.

    Brussels – L’Île-d’Yeu, May 2023

    ‘Like a telepath’ is a co-commission between Radiophrenia and Kunstradio Radiokunst for Ö1, Austria.

    Diana Duta is a Romanian-born, Brussels based artist working with sound in hypnotic ways, with a background in art and socio-cultural linguistics. Her work focuses on concepts of mimesis, translation and echoic memory, with an ear on our relationship to the non-human, embodied sound and the act of listening. She makes music performances (as DIAN), works for radio, sound installations and collaborative translation projects.

    Her project Jambes founded in 2019 is a recording studio commissioning new work by artists experimenting with sound and the voice. Quille podcast is an limb branching out from Jambes that collects interviews with sound practitioners.

    Florence Cats is a visual & sound artist and acupuncturist from Brussels who uses theremin, light, water, color and energies. Her ‘transparent music’ tunes in to space and ambient silence, and is inspired by natural radio. She has curated of a series of exhibitions around water, signs, transmutations, and is the co-author of several books including ‘Lavori in corso’ (primitive press, 2020). She released ‘Ys’ on ediçoes CN in 2022 and ‘correspondances’ on frissons in 2021. She was also a member of The Asocial Telepathic Ensemble (corvo records, 2022) and often collaborates with other musicians and artists, such as Brandon LaBelle, Clara Levy, Bogdana Dima, Mauricio Amarante, Joseph Charroy.

  • NOMADIC COSMOLOGIES AND FUGITIVE POWER: Red Forest Radiogram #5: Sonic Rites of Healing & Abundance
    24 August 2023  1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

    description
    With Satch Hoyt and the voices of those we don’t always name but never forget.

    Your voice is inseparable from your being, your history, your future and is the bridge between your inner and outer worlds. When there is a rift between what you express and how you actually feel, the truest part of you is abandoned. When you free your most authentic and natural voice, it is an act of self love, and essentially you are validating and freeing yourself.
    You come back into wholeness and integrity with yourself, planting the seeds for true freedom, happiness and joy to bloom.

    Satch Hoyt, born in London of British and African-Jamaican ancestry, is currently living and working in Berlin. He makes sculptures and installations accompanied with sound, as well as paintings and drawings. There is a dichotomy in the genres that define two sides of the same coin: a dual and complementary reflection on the African Diaspora and its multi-fold consequences. The sculptural trope in Hoyt’s work addresses the facts on the ground, so to speak, of black experience, while the drawings tap into a spirit of fantasy, refuge, and transcendence – they are vehicles for an imaginative journey beyond the obduracy and oppressiveness of history.

    The Red Forest is a loose knit assemblage based on affinities and  overlapping practices that grounds together research, art, political  imagination, and social actions striving for transformative justice  and ecological reparations. In 2021 they initiated a pan-continental  research focusing on the intersections between contemporary  extractivism and datification processes. Red Forest assembles and  organizes their work with infrastructures of collective reciprocity  and interdependency as actual potentiality. Their research contributes  to the theoretical framework of Energetic Materialism to conceptualize  urgent cultural and social processes in the defense of life and the  construction of pluriversal futures in dignified flux.    
     
    Red Forest is mobilized by David Muñoz-Alcántara, Diana McCarty, Mijke  van der Drift and Oleksiy Radynski, after their collective practices  super collided during a 2019-2020 BAK Fellowship in Utrecht. It  unfolds as a growing constellation of artists, activists, researchers,  media producers, filmmakers, philosophers, educators and time  travelers realizing interdisciplinary projects. In 2021, their ongoing  research on Extractivism, Datafication, and Transformative Justice was  supported by the Kone Foundation in Finland led to: producing an  experimental social and durational performance series in Kyiv and  Berlin titled Sambatas Stagings, supported by Goethe-Institut  Co-Production Fund Kyiv and Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin and in  2022, they convened Red Forest Radiograms – Nomadic Cosmologies &  Fugitive Power – as the German Pavilion of the the 23rd Triennale  Milano. In 2023, their KONE supported research is on “Energy-Matters  in the context of war. Neo-extractivism, fossil fascism, and the  post-national question”. They are currently producing “On the Loss of  Energy. Radiogram from the remnants of collisions”, an experimental  audio piece for the 2023 Helsinki Biennale.

    As part of our public engagement activities for 2023 we have worked with four diverse community groups to create a series of radio and sound works for broadcast on Radiophrenia.

    ‘Amina: the Muslim Women’s Resource Centre’ – Amina MWRC

    Amina is Scotland’s resource centre for Muslim and BME women. Exploring their services through voice and sound, listeners are invited on an audio journey through the organisation’s work. From the perspectives of three teams – Helpline, Violence Against Women and Girls, and Employability, Adult Learning and Financial Inclusion – we hear how Amina supports and empowers vulnerable women, dismantles discriminatory sociopolitical structures, confronts cultural norms, helps to rewrite policy, challenges capitalist value systems, and amplifies the most marginalised of voices.

    Recording, production and sound design by Riah Naief and Katie Revell, for Radiophrenia.

    Amina – the Muslim Women’s Resource Centre empowers and supports Muslim, Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) women to create an inclusive Scotland in which they can contribute fully. We envision a world where Muslim and BME women are fulfilling their aspirations. Amina is an award-winning organisation, recognised for its pioneering and responsive approach to addressing key issues and needs of racially minoritised women and Muslim women.
    Amina’s Helpline number is 0808 801 0301.

Together they explored sound and memory, prompted by a theme of the four classical elements: fire, earth, water and air. Through collective listening, walking and meditating, the group created rhythms, soundscapes, poetry and stories. ‘Kicking the Can’ is a window into the workshops, meandering through our experiments and pausing to dwell on moments of remembered youth or reflections on what it means to listen and be heard. Recordings were made in the surrounding neighbourhood of Flourish House in the Woodlands area of Glasgow.

    Flourish House is a mental health recovery community. We offer support to people with long-term mental illnesses, enabling them to gain a sense of well-being and to recover confidence. We encourage people to learn new skills to achieve social, financial and vocational goals, and to become active participants in the community.

    ‘They’ve Not Got Ears, Per Se’ – Govanhill Baths Fishing Group

    ‘They’ve Not Got Ears, Per Se’ is a sonic and sometimes submerged imagining of what a fish’s world sounds like, maggot eating included – and what they make of us humans above the water. As well as moving above and below a fishery’s pools, this piece also takes us between different fisher people; to hear about what fishing means to them, past prize catches (where fishes are as big as crocodiles), and what it feels like to hook a fish (and to be hooked, as a fish).

    Created by Govanhill Baths Fishing Group, recorded in Summer 2023 at the Springwater Fishery, Ayr.  

    Production and sound design by Ros Fraser and Flora Zajicek for Radiophrenia.

    Govanhill Baths is a grassroots, activist-based organisation delivering health, wellbeing, arts, environmental and heritage projects. Govanhill Baths Fishing Group invites families, couples and individuals to meet new people, and to acquire skills in both fly and bait fishing, supported by the Scottish Federation for Coarse Angling (SFCA).

    From the album ‘Turismo dentale’.


    2) Sara Lehad –
    Essel 
     
    Essel means “listen” in kabyle. Listening is somehow a way of living when you can’t speak like Echo in Greek mythology condemned to repeat the words of Narcisse.
    This piece aims to give a listen to things that are silenced like kabyle language, women and the trauma expressed by a scream.

    Sara Lehad is a Paris based and Algiers born sound artist and researcher. She’s currently working on her PhD at l’Université Paris 8 and she studied electroacoustic music composition at le Conservatoire de Pantin. Her current research aims to decolonize her practice of music through a matrimonial interest in Amazigh-Kabyle women culture and through thematics such as listening, voice, border of speech, immemorial and intergenerational trauma. She has also a practice of improvisation through an electronic dispositive of no-input mixing board. She performed in les Instants Chavirés, le Non_Jazz, Doxa Esta and Cmptrmthmthcs.

    description
    The River Clyde’s history of imperialism haunts Glasgow, its presence unavoidable – the hold of the city. Water can be used to heal, but sometimes it requires its own healing. In lessons in memory, healing is sought through an underwater meditation that evokes the past into conversation with the present and future. Made using a Mbira with sounds recorded from The River Clyde, Forth and Clyde Canal, and the Atlantic Ocean. Final edit by Clara Hancock Natasha Thembiso Ruwona is a Scottish-Zimbabwean artist, researcher, and curator. Working primarily in film, she is interested in how Afrofuturism and psychogeography can meet through experimental forms of storytelling.  Through her practice, she investigates healing and well-being by exploring relationships between the environment and creativity. natasharuwona.com

    *

    Chimerical appearances in the Galician night.

    Two mares surprise us.

    Vivid and fleeting, they leave a trace in us.

    From this appearance is born the desire to go back to the legend of the wild horses that populate Galicia.

    This journey can be listened in different orders.

    It is a twist of time where voices from the 16th century, telepathic visions of the future and rituals between humans and horses ricochet. Among them, we find the practice of farriery or the annual gathering Rapa das bestas during which humans meet wild horses.

    This audio drama is about the connection between humans and horses and more specifically about a traditional practice that began four centuries ago in Galicia. This heritage is called: Rapa das Bestas (The Shave of the Beasts). This ritual involves cutting the manes of the wild horses who live free at the mountains in a semi-feral state and that are performed in the curros (enclosed which retain the horses) held in various locations in Galicia (Spain).

    This tradition could be a Pre-Roman practice, given that various petroglyphs have been found in the area in which men are depicted on horseback.

    This Radio Drama is also an attempt to propose a travel into space and time. Indeed the piece is composed of five sequences that took place at different period of time, and can be heard remotely. It’s possible to make the experience here: https://www.annelepere.net/fr/area

    But for greater accessibility, there is an order that has been subtitled (SALT/IRON/MOSS/GOLD): https://videos.domainepublic.net/w/tEJRtSBrQGBnPgwk2idEsN

    Produced by Pete Hazell

    Radio Limbo offers an escape to its own world through plundered airwaves and curated music. Made with 90% recycled material (from irresponsibly sourced samples) this new mixtape is a compilation of the cut and paste highlights that bejewel our monthly shows.
    It marks five years of our residency on Bristol’s Noods Radio, and is packed with hallucinatory skits, plunderphonic sketches, music edits and playful collage that seek to transport, amuse and maybe gently disturb the listener.
     

    Pete Hazell has produced and hosted Radio Limbo for 5 years, and alongside creative collaborator Sean Lee, runs the cassette label Limbo Tapes.  As well as producing radio curiosities, Pete and Sean are musicians in their own right, making music as Titus 12 and Dive Reflex Service respectively. In 2022 they joined forces as World Of Repetitive Music for a collaborative album.
    Their music, and Radio Limbo material is available via Limbo Tapes on Bandcamp.

    1 – Peter Beeston – One Day We Will Swim In The Ocean Forever

    This was made in Autumn 2022 with the purpose of creating a small audio/radio drama narrative using only public domain sound effects and music (no lines of dialogue are spoken within it) Despite no dialogue, it still aims to have an identifiable and understandable main character and a narrative arc for them to travel; with situations and scenes that any person can understand and relate to (mainly about the stress of modern day life). It hopefully demonstrates unique methods of telling a story without dialogue.

    Peter Beeston is a producer, director and editor who organises a local group called ‘Cornucopia Radio’ based in Sheffield, UK; which makes a wide variety of audio work across many forms. He has helped 100’s of people over the last 15 years turn their ideas into finished audio productions. He is always looking for new interesting ways to tell stories and present ideas in the audio medium. You can find out more at http://www.cornucopia-radio.co.uk

    2 – Martha Riva Palacio Obón – Antología liquen

    This sound essay is my take on the concept of holobiont proposed by Lynn Marulis. We are, were, will be bodies ecosystems lichen. Symbiosis: I record the sounds I make with my mouth when speaking and mix them in different frequencies with radio static. Resounding symbionts entangle opening a gap through which an infinity of possible worlds emerge. Cacophony, chaos, flow: it’s impossible to know if I’m one or a multitude.

    Mexican sound artist and author. She studied a BA in Psychology and a MFA in Visual Arts and is member of the Sistema Nacional de Creadores de Arte.  https://twitter.com/martharp               

    3 – Ewan Cameron – How to be be Happy

    A darkly comic short story about mental health. An unnamed character begins following the advice of an online article titled ‘Ten things to do every day to become a happier you’. The article claims to make the reader happier in thirty days. However, after thirty days come and go, the character begins to quickly lose touch with reality.

    Ewan is a writer and audio producer based in London. He’s the creator of Randomly Generated Thought, an experimental storytelling podcast. His work has been aired on BBC Radio 4’s Short Cuts and has played at In the Dark Radio.

    4 – Farmer wadams – Butter Thumbers

    ‘Thumber’ – My first attempt at making ‘music’, in bed, slightly delirious and full of covid. Samples, all recorded on my phone, are a ruler pinging off a desk and finger tapping, my dogs and local birdlife. ‘Butter Thumbers’ – attempt at a ‘dance’ remix of Thumber.
     
    I have worked in animation for the past 25 years – currently Creative Director at Wild Child Animation, Stirling. I started out in club visuals and live AV performances, as part of a collective called Pointless Creations, and have always wanted to go back and make music of my own. Struggling to find time to learn music software, I decided to use Resolve, video editing software with which I was already familiar. So earlier this year I made my first track ill in bed with covid, which reflects the semi-delirious state I was in at the time.

    5 – DiscountGnostic – The Matchstick Man Knows Where You Live!

    As the pipe smoke clears the Matchstick Man travels from the past to render your future in a Bryant & May. Seemingly friendly, this old uncle’s gaze foretells the horror of the future as seen from the past and the viscous present of your predicament. The Matchstick Man always knows where you live…

    DiscountGnostic is a sound artist and improviser based in London. His practice involves the recuperation of false memory and the unearthing of occulted energy through the manipulation of existing sound materials and a ritual approach to composition. Always searching for the unhomely presence of childhood anxiety as reality unfolds into something far more delinquent, DiscountGnostic is happy to engage with the tear in the curtain.

    6 – Female Laptop Orchestra – Building a connection

    In 2021, the Fair_Play network (Austria) and Tsuku Boshi Records (France) invited Female Laptop Orchestra (FLO) to produce music for their upcoming EP, Ghost Structures, as part of the ]FairTsuku[ project, presenting female and non-binary composers from various backgrounds.

    Between September 2021 and September 2022, FLO members: Nela Brown (Croatia), Maria Mannone (Italy), Magdalena Chudy (Poland), Ariane Stolfi (Brazil), Sonia Wilkie (Australia) and Ada Methea Hoel (Norway), connected over the network from their respective locations to record four tracks for the EP, showing that even in times of great uncertainty, creativity knows no boundaries when afforded by technology!    https://femalelaptoporchestra.wordpress.com/

    7 – Ilaria Boffa – Make Me Ready

    How can we be change ready in this volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous era?
    Field recording taken at the Antique Market/Mercatino delle Cose d’Altri Tempi, Piazzola sul Brenta (Padua) – Italy.

    Ilaria Boffa is an Italian poet and sound recordist. She writes bilingual poetry and she has published three poetry collections to date.    https://linktr.ee/ilariaboffaIB
     
    8 – Samvaran Rai – With time

    With Time is based on the idea that time is a construct of the mind where one experiences material changes that run into space. With time, is an attempt to show the struggle of the mind to find a way to separate itself from time. The mind opens doors to different memory spaces yet every place in a memory space has existed before and this affects its present consciousness as it creates an incomprehensible warp of events and requires time to make sense of these material changes in the end.

    Samvaran is from Darjeeling in India. He has been involved with music and storytelling from a very early age. He pursued his musical career south of India and then obtained an education in film sound design in Estonia. He is currently involved with Sonic arts and Interactive media at De Montfort university where he is a part of the Music Technology and Innovation program of study.

    9 – Johnny Dixon – Patterned finger movements

    10 – Ariel Mioduser – Interference

    A perception of how sound enters my ears, excites all the inner organs and travels through the brain until it is conceived as sound. An external interference that undergoes internal processing.

    I am a media artist focusing on sound art, animation, and digital painting. Along the years my sound works have evolved from the use of field recordings and electronic instruments to being mainly based on my voice in a broad sense, processed to the point where sometimes it is not recognizable as a human voice, but still carries the warmth and vibration of the original. The visual raw material is the bare pixel as the building block of digital art. In all my works, the visual and the sound combine into one experience.           https://arielmio4.wixsite.com/website

  • Absolute Value of Noise and Anna Friz - Morse Mountain
    24 August 2023  11:00 pm - 25 August 2023  12:00 am

    description
    The mountain sleeps; dreams stone. Festooned with power lines and communications towers, striated by long-ago meltwater and creeks that have since evaporated, blown bald by the prevailing winds. Some day, come earthrise or landfall, the mountain will walk out into the sea. Until then, micro-movements in the sediment and rock are its uneasy speech, while the antennae atop its massive breathing shoulders continue to call and respond.

    The piece is inspired by coastal mountains that have been implicated in human long distance communications and listening, whether occupied by overland telephone and telegraph cables, military monitoring stations, radio and acoustic beacons for ships and airplanes, or 5G cell towers. Morse Mountain considers the ephemeral human occupations of signal space as they overlay mineral durations; fireflies buzzing around ancient beings that have merely paused to rest.

    Anna Friz and Absolute Value of Noise (Peter Courtemanche) are Canadian sound and radio artists. Anna Friz creates self-reflexive radio for broadcast, installation and performance. Her compositions reflect upon public media culture, environment and infrastructure (human and extra-human, acoustic, and electro-magnetic), time perception, and speculative fiction. Absolute Value of Noise creates radio and outdoor installations. He likes to work with “gadgetry” – custom turntables, lamp filaments, wire coils, high voltage ionizers, magnetic transceivers, and “little electronic brains” that observe and respond to local phenomena. His outdoor works are a comment on bio-diversity, extinction, and fragility.

    1 – Anne Marie Deacy & Rachel Doolin – Oscillithic: Hidden In Quartz. Sounding Stones. Explorative interactions through the elemental remnants of the sí

    The sí, in the Irish language, refers to megalithic mounds and the spirits believed to be connected to these ancient burial sites. White quartz stones, known as ‘Clocha Geala’ or ‘shining stones’ have featured prominently at many of these neolithic sites, alluding to its association with cosmic revelation, which has played a significant role in the material culture of our ancestors. Oscillithic is the neologism coined for this new collaboration, which explores the vibrational energies of lithic remnants, in an attempt to mine meaning and insight from the hidden vernacular of these megalithic sites. (Field recordings made by Anne Marie on Dowth Lands, Co. Meath, Sounding Quartz Remnants & Quartz Sound Bowls.)

    Anne Marie Deacy is a sound artist, based in the west of Ireland. Field recording is the foundation of practice, which is embedded in listening as activism. She is interested in the creation of sonic works that explore the resonance of materiality, exploring vibration and sound as a series of memory marks. Through this work she is interested in sounding the past and exploring through our auditory perception a sonic dialogue, frequently using radio as a portal that opens up our way of listening and questions our sense of time, self and place.

    Rachel Doolin is a visual artist, based in the South of Ireland. Doolin’s multidisciplinary practice merges art, experimentation and ecology to create work that is inextricably linked to material research, driven by a desire to test the parameters of materiality, media and the criticality of issue-based practice. Her work is thematically underpinned by a passion to explore the multifaceted dualities and dichotomies that surround materiality, habitation and the environment

    2 – Diana Duta – Ballade XI b

    3 – Pageboi – =]= noise gate

    This piece called ‘noise gate =]=’ represents a time when I feel lost, trapped and self-destructive. It’s very vulnerable and speaks to those who are hiding away from life’s tribulations, and also to those who are looking to help. The ‘broken’, ‘suffocated’ sounds are reminiscent of that cloudy feeling when everything feels a bit distant yet all too close for comfort, and the things you want to reach out to feel overwhelming.

    I am an artist currently living and working in Glasgow. Lately, I’ve been using field recordings to make soundscapes with added vocal distortion.

    4 – Wendy Kirkup – rough cut botanical

    ‘rough cut botanical’ is a ‘Film for Radio’, composed of spoken word and expanded audio description creating subjective images through the imaginative spaces of the radio. Originally a 16mm film and now reimagined as a sound work, the voice in ‘rough cut botanical’ explores audio describing as a way of creating a dialogue with those things which appear to us visually.

    5 – Guillaume Loizillon – Ordinary Times

    6 – Gabi Schaffner – Critter’s Home Study

    A seed concerto, piano keys, a radio. Imagine yourself small.  A gathering of sample recordings, mostly from instruments… performers. The difference between the analogue and the digital, is it like a fuel driven rocket to a time jump? I am sometimes afraid to listen (for the most manifold time) to a piece just created, just compiled from the file berths. Anyhow, this is about small places I think, “hiding corners’ (‘Versteckecken’) and broadcasting different materials (wood, plastic, wool, meta¬¬¬l).  And families of critters lounging in lichen deckchairs, all grouped around a buzzing radio. A bucket of salt water fits the scenery. Particles of mice, and straws.

    7 – Juliette Chartier – Space Cemetery

    In 1957, the dog Laïka was the first living creature to be placed in Earth orbit. This creation
    was inspired by her story and those of other animals that had died in space (monkeys mice, spiders…). Without them, human space exploration would probably not have happened.

    I am a documentary radio-maker and a sound artist. I live in Marseille (France) where I am part of the sound creation collective Copie Carbone. I enjoy various forms: documentary, radio practice, electroacoustic composition, sound installation… At the same time, I lead workshops around sound practices with children, adolescents and adults. I also perform as a dj under the name of Djsport2000.        https://juliettechartier.fr/

    8 – Emma Vickers – An Uprooted Voice

    An uprooted voice is a poetic exploration of hair materiality and landscape. Landscapes and organic ecosystems offer a rich synthesis for the sensorial experience. Poetic speculation of an alternative environment allows for the freedom of imagination, where limitations and factuality become a less hindering thought. When considering the natural fibre ‘hair’, the subject is often met with a generalised restricted vision within society, it’s an overlooked element of human physiology. ‘An Uprooted Voice’ introduces the concept of hair as a living material, a self-sustaining matter which has been disassociated from its’ usual life support – the body. It offers acoustic speculations of this organic material within a landscape, unveiling the ‘voice’ of hair.

    I have always had a strong interest in Art and Design. My degree in BA (Hons) Makeup and Hair Design at Solent University has challenged my ways of thinking and expanded my creativity, more recently I have been interested in forming new perspectives with speculative design approaches that could be explored through a variety of mediums.  https://www.emmavickersdesign.com/        

    9 – Tam Lin – Bench Loop 1

    Bench Loop 1 is part of an ongoing search for paralysing loops, loops which, similar to drones, can hold the listener in perpetual stasis. The loop in this piece is an electronically processed field recording of a metal bench, and while it loops perpetually, the intricacies of the patch create subtle variations in timing and texture. .  http://www.tamlines.com         
                           
    10 -Trần Uy Đức – Asking for Gyrations

    Asking for Gyrations is a composition that seeks to blend structures with intuitivities. Holding onto sonic materiality in a playful manner, the track also offers a perspective on the uncertain times of today’s world. It invites listeners to see music beyond the evitability of pivotality and into an indefinite ecology where preconceived notions of genre, culture, and voice must be redirected with compassion in the face of defamiliarization.

    Trần Uy Đức is one of the youngest musicians who’s been rising in the Vietnamese scene, a testament to the youthful energy driving it forward. Their internationally acclaimed second album, Came, was released in December 2021. T   http://www.tranuyduc.com

  • Leaky Transmissions
    25 August 2023  9:30 am - 10:00 am

    description

    These were part of a project called Leaky Transmissions whichspecifically rethought making audio work for radio listening. They both beganwith a workshop led by a poet around themes of field recording, transmission,listening and language. 

     1. Leaky Transmissions: Radio Silence 

    The term ‘static’ is associated with faulty transmission or faultyreception—static is communication gone wrong. But what if ‘static’ is thoughtof as a generative space, where the effort and struggle of communication isvalued as a thing in itself?

    In this collaboration, Nastassja Simensky, Emma Bolland, Larocheand Gesa Helms explore the spaces, metaphors, and struggles of ‘transmission’. Ina series of conversations following a workshop led by Emma Bolland, theyshared, translated, and responded to audio captioning, static, stutters and the‘machine silence’ of zoom. This material was mixed by Roisner and produced bysound Of ruins.

    Nastassja Simensky is anartist who often works collaboratively to make writing, place-specificperformances, events, sound work and films as a form of ongoing fieldwork. EmmaBolland is an artist, writer, and lecturer whose work currentlyexplores pathologisation of language, the spaces of institutions, and thewider politics of communication. GesaHelms is an artist, researcher and educator. She lives betweenGlasgow, UK, and rural Northwest Germany. Laroche isan artist and writer working from field centres in the French Pyrenees,southern Spain and London, UK. Roisner is aperformance artist, music producer, sound engineer and DJ.

     2. Leaky Transmissions: Poetry as Field Recording 

    Poetry as Field Recording is a collaborative audio work made byAnna Kime, Irina Sadovina, Ceri Nicholls, Nastassja Simensky and IoannisAndronikidis.

    This audio collaboration emerged through a talk and workshop ledby writer and poet Mina Gorji and includes poetry, field recordings,reflections, and electronic and linguistic experiments. By collectivelythinking through the challenges of distinguishing and articulating what and howwe hear, the group considered how listening is culturally informed, and how ourcomprehension of what we hear is shaped through our own language(s).

  • indri - Convergence: Earth
    25 August 2023  10:00 am - 10:30 am

    description
    This is a concept album about convergent evolution in sound. The Earth has been making sounds since it was formed, and in that time, all the sounds we have heard have become more and more unique. This album honours, recognises and celebrates the ways in which things have come to sound and how similar they can be whether above or below the water.

    My name is R Beuzeville, I work under the name indri, as well as my own name. I am a studying ecologist who has been making sound projects for several years. I work predominantly with field recordings that I record myself all over Australia, both above and below the water. I am interested in the way that sound exists in the natural world and the differences in the way that we and other species utilise and experience the sonic world.

    1 – Mat Ward – This Misunderstanding Suggests Tenderness

    Mat Ward is a musician and researcher whose practice encompasses performance, installation, film scoring, noise art, sonic portraiture, free improvisation and site-specific response. He collaborates extensively with artists across the world and is currently co-ordinating an international art music collective titled Then She Reaches For The Gun featuring more than 50 musicians from 20 countries. Ward’s current research focus is the examination of  the acoustic structure of noise; pulling apart field recordings to investigate how the properties of noise have both disruptive and cohesive elements and their relationship to human emotion and communication.

    Then She Reaches for the Gun was formed in 2021 to bring together some of Ward’s disparate collaborative projects through experimental sound collage. Ward invites people (not just musicians) to send him files which he arranges ‘as suggested by the work’ including field recordings, spoken word, noise and pet sounds as well as instrumental grabs. Both the aesthetic and the compositional methods extensively use what Frank Zappa called Xenocrony – the mixing together of separately recorded and rhythmically opposing musical phrases to create polyrhythmic and polytempi compositions that defy easy classification. A lot of it is also funny as fuck.       https://www.matward.net/         https://soundcloud.com/no-mates-ensemble

    2 – Cameron Leaf – Traversal

    Traversal is a sound piece created from recordings taken whilst walking in rural south west England. Navigating forests, moors, meadows & coastlines, the audio encompasses transit in all weathers — from the fog of Dartmoor to a sunny southern beach.

    The rhythm of footsteps takes the foreground, providing a steady & comforting cadence. Alongside the sound of the human, the environment itself emerges: grass, stones, water, wind. Traversal offers a moment to enter a state of mindfulness, perhaps; supplies a brief escape into the wilderness; or, is simply an opportunity to experience the sounds of the landscape.

    Cameron Leaf is a composer & sound designer based in the UK. An independent artist, he has produced a broad range of music under a multitude of aliases over the last decade. He set up Studio Leaf as a production unit for sound work — creating audio for speaker, space & screen.

    3 – Marco Dibeltulu – Una sola moltitudine

    After an endless moment of unease, in the race for the long-desired stillness, one goes through many moods. Once peace has been attained, one feels enveloped in an unexplained melancholy, as if feeling nostalgia for the frantic moments of the race. As fear gradually dissolves and “invisible hands caress the soul”, now that it has left its trouble behind, everything is thought over with the help of deeper breaths: the goal has been reached and the limit of the multitude of the moods one has experienced has been marked. The piece contains Antonella Chessa’s poem of the same title.

    Marco Dibeltulu (Alghero, 1971), studied at the Conservatory of Cagliari Composition, Choral Music and Electronic Music. 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; 360 degrees of 60×60 – Vox Novus, New York City; ICMC 2012 – Ljubljana; NYCEMF 2014, 2015 – New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival.   http://www.marcodibeltulu.it

    4 – Cláudio de Pina – Neurotransmits

    Neurotransmits (anagram of ‘number stations’) is an electroacoustic composition that explores the eerie and mysterious world of number stations. Featuring sounds from ‘The Buzzer’, ‘The Pip’ (Russia), Lincolnshire Poacher (UK), among others from different countries (Sweden, Hungary, Poland and Cuba). The piece conjures the atmosphere of a spy listening in on clandestine transmissions in a safehouse. The listener to enters a world of covert operations and intrigue, where hidden codes and transmissions pulse through the airwaves, and is left to wonder what is the meaning of these messages, from were are they being transmitted, and to whom…

    Cláudio de Pina is a sound artist, improviser, organist and composer. Titular organist of the historical organ at the Parish of Ajuda. Researcher in GIMC. Holds a DAS and a MA distinguished with the Dean’s Honour Roll. Currently a PhD candidate and a fellow. Studied in Gregorian Institute of Lisbon, Hot Jazz Club and Physics Engineering.    http://www.claudiodepina.com

    5 – Emma Margetson – Cimbaal

    This work is primarily derived from close microphone recordings of a suspended cymbal. The sonic qualities of the cymbal are explored, with the piece transforming and transporting the sounds of the cymbal to different cosmic worlds. Particularly important is how the resonating qualities of the work build and fade taking the listener on a journey to explore different spaces, pitches and timbres of the cymbal, whilst contrasts in motion and gestural activity – strikes, swooshes, gongs – explore the physicality of the instrument.

    Dr Emma Margetson is an acousmatic composer and sound artist. She is a Lecturer in Sound Design and Research Fellow in Audiovisual Space: Recontextualising Sound-Image Media at the University of Greenwich. Her research interests include, sound diffusion and spatialisation practices; site specific works, sound walks and installation; audience development and engagement; and community music practice.  http://www.emmamargetson.co.uk

    6 – Roberto D’Ugo Jr – Água Reversa Acqua Inversa

    Liquid Augury. Processed soundscape: a discreet ornamental water fountain recorded on Avenida Paulista, in São Paulo. The technique working as an oracle. Echoes of Walter Benjamin: “we can only penetrate the mystery to the extent that we find it in the everyday, thanks to a dialectical optic that sees the everyday as impenetrable and the impenetrable as everyday”.

    Roberto D’Ugo is a Brazilian artist-researcher dedicated to radio art. He creates works that explore interfaces between magic, technique and art. Based on listening to everyday life, his aesthetic investigation dialogues with surrealism. The ritualistic repetition of sound residues is a characteristic of his work. 

    7 – David Snow – The Mozart Effect

    An imaginary field recording documenting the psychoacoustic properties of the uterine environment up to the moment of parturition.

    The compositions of David Jason Snow have been performed in concert by the Ensemble Intercontemporain at the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, the Banda Municipal de Bilbao at the Euskalduna Palace in Bilbao, The New Juilliard Ensemble at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and many other artists and ensembles internationally.  davidsnowmusic.org

    8 – Mike Hovancsek – Level 1

    This piece of music makes use of pure electronics, samples, koto, and a circuit-bent instrument called a “jabberbox”. I am a musician who usually plays acoustic, multicultural music but this piece is part of an album of electronic works that I am recording.

  • Hannan Jones - How Do We Hold On - live in the studio
    25 August 2023  11:30 am - 11:45 am

    description
    Field recordings of Marseilles’ Noailles neighbourhood provide a fragmented foundation to consider connections of self, community, and historical migration routes. A diary-like composition that leans into the artists experience of the diaspora and brings to attention chaos in a distant yet familiar environment. Elongated murmurs, fragments of sidewalk hustling and street performance are stitched together and overlaid with live prose. Spoken in English, acknowledging the varied degrees of diasporic experience and displacement; a polyphonic gesture towards fractured individuals and communities. Commissioned in 2022 for The Common Guild Roundtable conversation in response to Basel and Ruanne Abou-Rahme’s exhibition ‘May amnesia never kiss us on the mouth’.

    Hannan Jones is an interdisciplinary artist, musician, and programmer of Algerian and Welsh origin born in regional Australia on Binjerup Noongar Boodjar. Research-led, Hannan deep dives into concepts of hybridity, rhythms, and psycho-geography responding to cultural and social migration. At the intersection of sound, sculpture, installation, and moving image, Hannan attempts to find ‘togetherness’ and reflect ourselves in our surroundings.

    1) Sara Lehad – D’élire domicile
     
    D’élire domicile is a piece I made very spontaneously using a technique of layering and sampling different recorded or synthesized sound sources to create a confused yet distinct magma.  

    Sara Lehad is a Paris based and Algiers born sound artist and researcher. She’s currently working on her PhD at l’Université Paris 8 and she studied electroacoustic music composition at le Conservatoire de Pantin. Her current research aims to decolonize her practice of music through a matrimonial interest in Amazigh-Kabyle women culture and through thematics such as listening, voice, border of speech, immemorial and intergenerational trauma. She has also a practice of improvisation through an electronic dispositive of no-input mixing board. She performed in les Instants Chavirés, le Non_Jazz, Doxa Esta and Cmptrmthmthcs.

    2) Sisters Akousmatika – Border_Radio Chapter 1: Phonic atolls

    Border_Radio is a conceptual inquiry about ownership of the airwaves. Originally commissioned as a video and ‘radio play’ script for Donner forme a l’ether Espace Multimedia Gatner (France). The Border_Radio play is written in three acts: Phonic atolls ~  Spectrum Auction ~ Decolonising Wavelengths. Each act represents an unfolding conceptual space, exploring questions about sovereignty, ownership, transmission law and international treaties, history and potentialities.

    Sisters Akousmatica (lutruwita/Tasmania, AUS) Is the collaborative, expanded radio project of Julia Drouhin and Phillipa (Pip) Stafford – exploring the radical possibilities of transmission since 2016. Sisters Akousmatica weave projects in, around, with and for radio. Their work is concerned with collective, feminist radio practices and auditory-spatial exploration.

    “Who remembers all that? History throws its empty bottles out the window.“

    Sans Soleil, Chris Marker, 1983
    A song is playing, in the background. Hey —

    Schock!

    Still, alive.

    Waste(d) land revisited.

    This is an acousmatic cadavre, reassembling thoughts and samples that are rotting on a hard drive in a box, in the downloads folder of my laptop causing slow pace or being captured in the fields very soon. As if it was a prehistoric cave, creatures pass in and out. The traces of another time lie buried in the undefined terrain, but I will arrange and add yet another layer to this palimpsest of sounds and form a loop of sonic references and anecdotes, like a Stone/r/d henge in a sonic sphere. Roll out a carpet of sub frequencies! You may hear the echoes of the sirens, they speak with a German accent in their voice in dramatic tone… still, I feel the same.

    With voices of Meta D-1, Gertrude Stein, Anna Oppermann, Fiona and the author and a quote by Lawrence English.

    Antonia Alessia Virginia Beeskow, born in Düsseldorf, studied archaeology, Angewandte Theaterwissenschaft and Klang & Realität. As artist, sound designer and performer, Beeskow works in the independent scene, radio plays, podcasts, installations, experimental films and in the theater in different collaborations and writes about female* composers and sound artists for the grapefruits.online fanzine.

  • Machine Listening - After Words
    25 August 2023  12:40 pm - 1:00 pm

    description
    After Words is a radiophonic artwork, originally developed as a multi-channel sound installation for the exhibition Data Relations at Australian Centre for Contemporary Art.
     
    As the artists explain, ‘data is never mined. It is always made. A computational theatre.’ Many datasets used to ‘train’ automated systems to make predictions and decisions are literally performed by actors, or researchers pretending to be actors. Others are the product of our own performances for and with machines, every time we ‘wake up’ Alexa or upload a video to YouTube.
     
    After Words explores these dynamics across a series of speculative scenes. Each scene works with readymade audio, repurposed from machine learning datasets, woven through a script written with and against an ‘autoregressive language model’, and performed by voice actors. The result is a strange set of semi-fictional tales of computational scripting, instruction, production, and performance, staged in 8-channel audio. In this strangeness, After Words gestures at a near future in which language has been fully operationalised: where every word we speak has a computational effect and residue.
     
    The voice artists invited to record original material for this work are all researchers in critical data studies.
     
    MACHINE LISTENING (SEAN DOCKRAY, JAMES PARKER AND JOEL STERN)
     
    Established in 2020 by artist-researchers Sean Dockray (b.1977), James Parker (b.1983) and Joel Stern (b. 1979), Machine Listening is a platform for collaborative research and experimentation, focused on the computation, capture and control of sound and speech. The collectives research and writing concentrates on accent bias, audio event detection, music information retrieval, and automated voice diagnostics, including how practices like these were mediated by the pandemic, which has been a constant backdrop. Machine Listening situate this material in relation to the entwined histories of speech recognition and computer music. Machine Listening have produced an online library and an interview series, staged lectures and performance programs, made films, and an ‘instrument’ for composing with audio and video via text. All of this material has been gathered online as an expanded ‘curriculum’.
     
    Sean Dockray is an artist and writer whose work explores the politics of technology, with a particular emphasis on artificial intelligences and the algorithmic web. He is a founding director of the Los Angeles non-profit Telic Arts Exchange, and initiator of knowledge-sharing platforms, The Public School and AAAARG.ORG. Sean is currently Head of Sculpture & Spatial Practice – Senior Lecturer, School of Art & Design at the Australian National University, College of Arts and Social Sciences.
     
    James Parker is the Director of a research program on Law, Sound and the International at the Institute for International Law and the Humanities (IILAH) at Melbourne Law School. His research focuses on the relations between law, sound and listening, with a particular emphasis on international criminal law, the law of war and privacy.
     
    Joel Stern is a researcher, curator, and artist and currently holds the position of Vice Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Fellow in DSC|School-Media & Communication, RMIT. With a background in experimental music, Stern’s work focuses on practices of sound and listening and how these shape our contemporary worlds.Stern was Artistic Director of pioneering Australian sonic art organisation Liquid Architecture, 2013–2022.

    Dark ambient prime number based ruler vibrations, with samples from my daughter and the local river.  

    I have worked in animation for the past 25 years – currently Creative Director at Wild Child Animation, Stirling. I started out in club visuals and live AV performances, as part of a collective called Pointless Creations, and have always wanted to go back and make music of my own. Struggling to find time to learn music software, I decided to use Resolve, video editing software with which I was already familiar. So earlier this year I made my first track ill in bed with covid, which reflects the semi-delirious state I was in at the time.

    2 – Alistair Zaldua and Lauren Redhead – by increments

    SouthWestApril is a collection of four experimental sound poems that combine speech, improvisation and live electronics that can be heard as separate pieces or a continuous set. The texts were created using extended Oulipo techniques, while the e-violin interacts with live electronics that sample and process the improvised sound in real time. These pieces were recorded at the SWR Experimentalstudio in Freiburg, Germany, in April 2023; live electronics were performed in the studio by Maurice Oeser.

    Alistair Zaldua is a composer, improviser and violinist based in Manchester. In addition to his work as a solo improviser, he performs in a duet for organ and live electronics with Lauren Redhead. Most recent projects involve duet improvisation with Alwynne Pritchard (Bergen), saxophonist Christoph Gallio (London/Aarau) and percussionist Pascal Pons (Freiburg).
    http://www.alistair-zaldua.de

    Lauren Redhead is a composer of experimental music whose work is published by Material Press (Berlin) and by Firehead Organ Works (UK). Her music is released on the pan y rosas discos and sfz music labels. She is also a performer of music for organ and electronics, often working in a duet with Alistair Zaldua. When not making music, Lauren also writes about the aesthetics and socio-semiotics of 20th and 21st Century musics.

    4 – Vincent Eoppolo – Facades

    Vincent Eoppolo (Ioppolo) is an American composer from Wilmington, Delaware. Initially trained as both a Classical and Jazz guitarist, Eoppolo began composing and recording electronic music in the early 1980’s shortly after the development of MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) and the introduction of affordable home computers and recording equipment. During the 1980-90’s Eoppolo’s fixed media compositions were regularly featured on university new music radio programs in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania region. Additionally, Eoppolo’s works received recognition in music publications Keyboard Magazine and Computer Music Journal. In recent years, Eoppolo’s fixed media works have been presented at the New York City Electro-Acoustic Music Festival, Mise_En Place New Music Festival in Brooklyn, Utopie Sonore in Nantes, France and De Natura Sonorum in Rome, Italy. Eoppolo’s compositions have been released by Moscow based independent music label Meticulous Midgets and his works are regularly featured on new music radio and internet programs throughout Europe and North America.

    Eoppolo’s compositions are a mix of various sound art traditions such as musique concrete, acousmatic music, electro-acoustic music and radio art. Eoppolo refers to his works as sonic cinema and he cites film directors such as Antonioni, Tarkovsky and Fellini as influences.

    Eoppolo’s music is available on all major streaming platforms such as Spotify, ITunes, YouTube and Amazon as well as Soundcloud.

    5 – Patric Simmerud – Fatburen

    Fatburen was the name of a lake, located at the outskirts of somewhere else, which due to its rich wildlife attracted humans who fed upon what the water gave them. The humans settled down, a small village was founded. The good life attracted businessmen who started factories, which inevitable led to the death of the wildlife and ultimately the lake itself. The village grew to a city and the lake was first transformed into a railway station, then into 12 stores high buildings for people to live in. Today Fatburen is the name of a very small part of Stockholm.

    Patric Simmerud (°1963) is a composer and sound artist based in Stockholm, Sweden. Classically trained and with wide influences, my work as a composer range from contemporary art music – including electroacoustic and radiophonic pieces, chamber music and music for full orchestra – to soundscapes and music for film. As a sound artist, I have explored various artistic disciplines such as installation, performance, videoart. My work has been internationally performed and included in various art exhibitions.  http://www.simmerud.com

    6 – Karolis Lasys – Fermi Paradox

    Fermi’s Paradox is a collage of found sound in the short-wave radio spectrum, recordings of number stations and a song which, along with reflections of the author, constructs a narrative of how radio, as a medium, highlights / mirrors the flaws of interpersonal communication, finding understanding, the somewhat inherent meaninglessness of it all and how we cannot stop trying. It was made in reference to Fermi’s paradox and tries to expand it to apply not just to the question of extraterrestrial life, but also to the terrestrial goings on of people.

    Karolis Lasys is a musician, architect and interdisciplinary artist, hailing from Lithuania and currently based in Helsinki, Finland. Through his work Karolis explores the intricacies of modernity – how technology, interconnectedness and globalisation effect the human condition both positively and, more often than not, strain it by putting us in new tighter mind-frames. His usual work mediums are spatial installations, audio-visual works and interactive bridges between virtual and physical space. He’s also a resident in Palanga Street Radio, based in Vilnius, Lithuania and Gasoline Radio in Kiev, Ukraine and runs an alternative electronics label called BRKNCRCTS.       https://www.instagram.com/eugine_onegin/        

    7 – Juliana Capes – What noise is garden

    “GOWO MANGO” an album of song sketches by visual artist and describer Juliana Capes,  commissioned as expanded audio description by artist Laura Aldridge,  as part of an audio interpretation of her recent monograph THINGS THAT SOAK YOU.

    Capes’s descriptions of Aldridge’s sculptures have morphed through conversation into sketches of songs, through exploration of Laura’s working methods of expanded collage, shared enthusiasm about musical influences and love of mash up and the encouragement burgeoning friendship and collaboration.

  • Speculum Bunny - Burnt Offering live in the studio
    25 August 2023  2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

    description
    An improvised set compromising of spoken word, singing, bass guitar, synth as well as field recordings and prerecorded interviews. The piece is inspired by acts of surrender, offering, transition and devotion and the relevance of these in a modern context. It is my intention that the piece itself is an act of surrender given its improvised nature. The end result being an emotive, immersive and transitional experience for listeners. Clare Simpson is a somatic sound artist, poet and performer based in Glasgow. She has a broad range of experience writing, creating, performing and directing various soundscapes, gigs, live shows and spoken word pieces. She recently performed a 3.5 hour durational soundpiece ‘BANSHEE’ at Buzzcut 2023 and is currently releasing her first EP as her solo project ‘Speculum Bunny’. She has performed at The Arches, Hidden Door Festival, Usher Hall, Buzzcut and The Royal Panopticon. She is a trained sound healer with a passion for weaving this into her work to provoke, stir and inspire emotion to those listening.

  • Susana Jiménez-Carmona - Lana negra: el río / Black wool: the river
    25 August 2023  3:00 pm - 3:30 pm

    description
    “Lana negra: el río” / “Black wool: the river” is an experimental sound documentary made up of recordings (with different devices) on the banks of the Guadalquivir river as it passes through the city of Cordoba. These recordings have been made between 2017 and 2022 at different times of the day and at different seasons of the year. It follows a herd of sheep, which usually graze by the river, and some of their relationships with other inhabitants of this urban territory (humans, dogs, birds, insects, plants, cars, soils, water…).

    Researcher and sound artist, she is a doctor in Human and Cultural Sciences and a professor in the sound art master’s degree at the University of Barcelona. Her work is focused on human collaborative practices and interspecies listening and has been shown at the Museo Reina Sofía (Madrid), Universidad París 8, Festival Tsonami de Valparaíso, Festival Creatures (Seville), C3A (Córdoba), among other places.

  • Astrid Björklund - Sustained Breathing / Strained Soul
    25 August 2023  3:30 pm - 4:00 pm

    description
    A soliloquy on the nature of seclusion and the volatility of existence; seen through the eyes of an abstract myth.

    The work intertwines thoughts of death and identity with mythical beings and curious worlds found in Swedish stories and folklore. Featuring throughout the soundwork is an old reed organ that was once used by my great grandparents, dusty and weathered from years of neglect. The organ becomes a new entity by merging itself with the abstract myth risen from ancient times, from a place that lies deep beneath and deep within.

    “She is death, the inevitable change, life’s impermanence and the end of all things. She is wonderful, and terrifying.”

    Work commissioned by Miasma & Look Again (Terra Incognita) as part of the Wonderland Festival, Thursday 8 – Sunday 11 September 2022, Aberdeen. #wonderlandaberdeen

    Sound broadcasted to earthly and unearthly critters via fruitful.fm/

    Astrid Björklund is a Swedish visual artist and amateur sound weaver. Her work draws on the theories of the “Chthonic” (of relating to, or in, the underground), fiction, mythmaking, and thoughts surrounding the uncertainty, awe and ambiguity of life, with a pinch of existential dread. Noise, music and ambience for this work have been created using various synthesised, found, created and recorded sounds.

  • Aleks Wruk - Journey through space-time: a listening experience Live in the studio
    25 August 2023  4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

    description

    The universe began in a tremendous explosion known as the BIG BANG…

    Inspired by astronomy radio programmes this project combines storytelling, meditation and sound therapy techniques to guide participants on a journey through space-time – from the comfort of their sofa and closed eyes.

    The narrative is woven through the cosmic soundscape created by the instruments typically played for relaxation, such as gongs or singing bowls, which help to induce Theta brain waves. This stimulates visualisation and deep relaxation. The aim is to explore the possibility of sound in altering the consciousness of the listener.

    Aleks Wruk is a Glasgow-based performer, sound therapist, and experience researcher. With a background in interactive media design and a certification as a gong master, Aleks creates immersive sound experiences that transport audiences into states of deep relaxation. They have previously performed in various venues and festivals around Glasgow and Edinburgh and collaborated with organizations such as Take Me Somewhere Festival based in Tramway.
    Aleks is also a wellbeing educator, and they are currently pursuing a PHD at the intersection of Psychology and AI.

  • Kristina Warren - Lavender Lauds
    25 August 2023  5:00 pm - 5:30 pm

    description
    All sound is rhythm. Audio waveforms are a kind of pulsation, whether regular or irregular. Lavender Lauds takes this rhythmic reality of sound as a starting point, examining cyclicality at various levels and time scales. While in residence at Vienna’s MuseumsQuartier in Spring 2023, I took many photos, videos, and audio recordings in and around Vienna, then sonified these into several unique software oscillators, through which Lavender Lauds explores various time scales from short to long.

    2) Mathias Guilbaud – Voies Urbaines: Rue Sainte-Catherine (6:58)
    3) Camille Hummel – Outside (6:40)

    1) torschlusspanik – mutilation (non-surgical)



    Originated in 2013, Torschlusspanik is a middle-aged Tennessee gal’s outlet for mostly unpleasant and nonrealistic music that has been summarized as “maximalist electro-acoustic” in the past. A wide scramble of sounds are crudely forced into sound collage and (vague) song format intended for weaponizing emotional overstimulation and mulling over lost opportunity as time is near expired.
     
    2) Mathias Guilbaud – Voies Urbaines: Rue Sainte-Catherine 

    Sainte-Catherine is a small street in Toulouse, France, close to my apartment. Attracted by its construction works, I decided to spend a few months recording and composing with the sounds of the street. Vibrant sounds, people working, engines, rhythms coiled inside barriers, so many textures depict the metamorphoses of our urban spaces. Tickling and shifting our listening, the sounds find a way to express themselves so that they can be heard, so that they unveil our cities and our relationships with them.

    With a background in film studies, Mathias Guilbaud likes to work and question the way sound can awaken the senses and question our relationship with spaces. It is through this practice combining documentary, acousmatic and phonographic composition, that he creates sound pieces where living spaces and intimate stories intertwine. Cities represent a privileged listening ground where he questions our relationship to public spaces and urban planning. Mathias works for theatre companies, community radios and cinema.

    3) Camille Hummel – Outside

    They are alone on one side or the other of the bars. The radio waves allow them to hold back a little longer.

    Camille Hummel is a young french sound artist, working on ecology and societal topics. She likes to use sounds as tiny pieces of paper, trying to mix up everything, words, voices, fieldrecording, and sound-design to express herself. Besides, she does documentaries and writes stories for TV and video games.

  • Production 6 - Sara Lehad - Immemorial Echo
    25 August 2023  6:00 pm - 6:30 pm

    description
    What I call my sound matrimony is the sum of the inner and the outer elements that I hear and listen to when improvising with my machine and recording phonographies. It’s a magma of noises, concrete sounds, voices, languages, poetry, riddles, screams and, sometimes creepy stories. The composition came to me as the place where I could share the ghosts in me and the vivifiant present around me, going through a montage of phonographies and a deconstruction of the dualism in between which is a morphological sound and a representational one.

    Most of the speech and human voices arise from wonderful women, some of whom are my grandmother Wardia and her friend Haljia, but also a group of women called “Medahates” whose singing voices can be heard invoking the rain with traditional prayers because of this horrible spring canicule. All these voices were recorded by myself in April 2023 in Mayache, a little Mediterranean village in the countryside of Tigzirt in the wilaya of Tizi-Ouzou in the north of this very special and plural country – both beautiful and tragic – that I was born in: Algeria. The composition was made in my studio at Pantin, France.

    See here for translation and contextualization of the piece:

    Sara Lehad is a Paris based and Algiers born sound artist and researcher. She’s currently working on her PhD at l’Université Paris 8 and she studied electroacoustic music composition at le Conservatoire de Pantin. Her current research aims to decolonize her practice of music through a matrimonial interest in Amazigh-Kabyle women culture and through thematics such as listening, voice, border of speech, immemorial and intergenerational trauma. She has also a practice of improvisation through an electronic dispositive of no-input mixing board. She performed in les Instants Chavirés, le Non_Jazz, Doxa Esta and Cmptrmthmthcs.

    Words + music* by Len Goetzee
    *Except Greensleeves used in the intro and the final recorder piece which was based on a Robert Morton composition (1430-1479).

    Through a research led practice I piece together an eclectic archive of queer kin; an onto-epistemological, entanglement with diseased trees, time travelling bunnies, pork pies, bubble gum and even mugs at b&m. I combine fact and fiction into dramatic fabulation to help unbuild an autobiography; taking it apart to its dereliction, a denouncement of the episteme I find myself in. Not ruin for ruinations sake, but for rediscovery and rebirthing+, to meet one/self in the rubble.

    Len Goetzee is a queer artist living and working in Glasgow. Through a trans methodology of collapse and dispossession they excavate a past enmeshed with the non-human and the more than human. Binaries breakdown and temporalities become twisted; an anti-propulsive practise reversing into queer resistance and into old futures.

  • Benoit Bories & Aurélien Caillaux - "Les gardiennes du temple" (The guardians of the temple)
    25 August 2023  7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

    description
    The guardians of the temple follow the journey of Claudine and Irma, former residents of the Center d’Accueil des Français d’Indochine de Sainte-Livrade. Irma arrived there as a child, in 1956, and Claudine was born there. They grew up there, were built in the particular conditions of this internment camp, each following their own path between family tradition and integration into Lot-et-Garonne land.

    Irma, who did not go to college and never worked, married young, and never left the region. Claudine left to study nursing in Bordeaux, then returned to her family, providing voluntary care for the residents of the camp. They are fighting today, each in their own way, to preserve the memory of this place that shaped them. The documentary follows them in their daily activities, the animation of Buddhist pagodas, the preparation of traditional meals, while weaving the history of the camp through the thread of their memories.

    An English translation and background notes can be found here:

    Benoit Bories is a sound designer. He has produced sound creations for France Culture, Arte radio, RTBF, RTS, Deutschland Radio Kultur and ABC. His sound creation activity comes originally from the sound documentary. It has gradually transformed over time towards more hybrid productions combining forms borrowing from sound art, acousmatic composition and field recording while retaining this desire to document societal issues. His documentary filmmaker’s gaze always pushes him to tell the story of the intimate in an attempt to make a universal resonate. Benoit Bories teaches documentary sound creation at Phonurgia Nova, ENSAV Toulouse, Faïdos Sonore and works with several schools of audiovisual creation.

    Since 2016, he mainly develops sound creations for live performance, installations and hybrid live performances. He has collaborated with several festivals and cultural venues for his performances (Directors’ Fortnight in Cannes, Couvent des Jacobins in Toulouse, Hearsay Audio festival in Ireland, Polyphonik in Greece) and regularly participates in artistic residencies abroad (Harvestworks in New York, RMIT and Bogong Center for Sound Culture in Melbourne, Spatial Sound Institute Budapest). Benoit Bories has won several international awards and mentions for his sound work.

    Aurélien Caillaux is an urban planner by training. After several professional experiences in this field and a stint with Doctors of the World, he decided to explore the theme of the urban through another prism, and set up the association Les Voix de la Ville in Paris, which produces narrated sound walks by the inhabitants in the Goutte d’Or district, then in French Guiana, in the town of Saint-Laurent du Maroni. Diversifying his practice of sound, he moved to Toulouse in 2013, to continue the adventure within the Voix de Traverse collective. With the latter, he carries out several sound walks in Toulouse and in the region, sets up listening workshops and initiation to sound documentaries in schools, participates in transdisciplinary projects around the collection of memories or audiovisual productions, conducts radio projects. He has been working for several years with Benoit Bories on the production of acousmatic
    documentary creations.

  • Francis Heery-black earth [sown with stars]
    25 August 2023  8:00 pm - 8:30 pm

    description
    black earth [… sown with stars…] is a sonic psycho-geography of the bog-lands of East Co. Galway, Ireland. There is a very particular mood of watchfulness and deep time that emanates from this landscape, dotted with holy wells, early Christian monasteries and older pagan sites. Although only an hour’s drive to the sea, it sometimes has the feeling of being infinitely landlocked. This work uses the radio as an ephemeral auditory location, a localised containment unit, temporarily holding in place a sonic rendering of the unsettling, en-magicked character of the Irish midlands.

    Francis Heery (b.1980) is a composer and sound artist. His music is inspired by science-fiction, occultism and animal aesthetics. He is an accomplished improvisor and specializes in long-form, site-specific performances in public spaces. His instrumental works have been performed by the RTE Symphony Orchestra, the Crash Ensemble, the Quiet Music Ensemble, the Talujon Percussion Ensemble and by soloists including Carin Levine, Pascal Galois, Izumi Kimura and James Aylward. He also produces ‘Fortean’ folk music under the name The Cube of Unknowing.

  • Léa Roger & Cristina Canedo - Amphibia entramadas
    25 August 2023  8:30 pm - 9:00 pm

    description
    At the debut of 2023, we conducted expeditions with our microphones in the Tariquía and Carrasco National Parks, located in Andean forests and mountain jungle (Yungas) in Bolivia. We found ourselves in the heart of the paradoxes of conservation, far from a romantic view. The Carrasco National Park is an ecological corridor where the last specimens of the Sehuencas frog are found, in danger of extinction by a construction of large hydroelectric plant while the Tariquía National Reserve is threatened by hydrocarbon extractivism. Communities try to resist the interventions of the companies.

    This sound-poetic piece created by two hands, seeks an ecology of encounter to build new
    relationships with others – humans, animal species, plants and the elements. At once a journey, a sensory and perceptive multispecies interpretation, this sound piece is part of a political reflection. We consider this contemplative soundscape as a therapeutic device, where we seek to hear what the landscape diffuses in us.

    Our intention emerges from the muddy depths of a reality operated by predatory, extractivist,
    neoliberal and colonial logics, where the coexistence between the human and the non-human
    diverges between dense veils that keep us in a loop of disconnection and bewilderment.
    Become spirals in the meantime. From the depth of darkness towards a radiant, vibrant dawn. From the great pulse of this planet to the infinite spiral of the cosmos, dancing in the organic and non-organic rhythmic of existence and enjoying the transformation of sound matter into a substance that ceases to be what it is, to be reborn in its infinite possibilities.
    Recorded and composed by Léa Roger (Be) & Cristina Canedo (Bol)
    Mixed by Léa Roger

    Léa Roger is a Belgian sound artist, experimental harpist and electro-acoustic composer. She likes to play with the unpredictable aspects of sound through physical experiments that mix energy flow, psycho-acoustics and sound ecology, to bring the listener to an expanded state of consciousness. For the past few years, she has been exploring somatic practices that permeate her artistic work. This dialogue with the body and the inner space are becoming more and more present fields of research that lead her to experiment with alternative modes of attention to others – human and more than human.

    bioacoustics, exploring sound phenomena and investigating biosemiotics. She explores the poetic interfaces between the fields of visible and non-visible; the relations between human and non-human. She is currently working on the sonification of biological parameters and acoustic signals to represent and unveil patterns of occurrences, multidimensional data and harmonic abstractions of the everyday-life in relation to sound ecology.

    25 August 2023  9:00 pm - 9:30 pm

    description
    The radio tower lies in the transitional space between soundwave and airwave, but it is a space far from the margins. The steel mast exerts power near and far, dominating the near electromagnetic field and landmarking the far horizon. Here we focus on the near, listening to these high-perched steel masts as conductive as well as disruptive objects, playing with and through the interference in the tower’s proximity to sound out the spire.

    williwaw routinely explores the aesthetics of technological failure through the medium of heavily amplified ’ukulele.

    1 – Kevin Poulton – high five 1237

    ‘high five 1237’ takes its name from the call sign repeated during the recording. The track consists of random shortwave radio transmissions from all over the World, some Russian, and various field recordings including a railway station transformer, a bat detector, a saucepan of boiling water and hydrophone recordings of the Grand Union Canal in London.

    The recordings were played back in the nave of St John’s Waterloo church which has a wonderful acoustic and recorded via an SR3D binaural microphone. All the movement in the recording was made by moving the speakers around the space and the microphone. The idea was to explore what could be achieved without panning the sound when editing.

    The work was inspired by Walter Murch and his Worldizing recordings in the 1970s and Kontakte, the electronic music work by Karlheinz Stockhausen from 1959-60 where he recorded sound from multiple microphones positioned around a rotating loudspeaker.

    ‘high five 1237’ was entered for The Engine Room 2023 International Sound Art Competition & Exhibition and selected for the exhibition at Morley Gallery London held between 24th April to 18th May 2023

    2 – Rachel Ní Chuinn – Maximum Poetry

    The piece is made with a simple poetry generator I put together in MaxMSP. There is a total of 100 nouns, 100 words and 100 adjectives combining to create an endless stream of nonsense poetry that sometimes strikes a chord.  The spoken words are stretched until they make abstract transients with gestural, dynamic shifts in playback rate. A computer voice takes over and my voice becomes further abstracted into looped rhythms. The piece is about our relationship with technology and how we maintain a sense of meaning and fulfillment.

    Rachel Ní Chuinn works with sound, movement, text and electronics to explore ideas of touch, perception and physicality. She has produced sound works for radio, live performance, installation and film. Her radio documentaries on music, sound and architecture have been shortlisted for the Prix Italia, the Prix Europa, the IMRO radio awards and the New York Festivals Radio Awards. Her sound work for Jane Deasy’s Opening Night contributed to winning overall best design at the Dublin Fringe Festival 2022. She now lives in Glasgow and has started to perform live electronic sets locally.

    3 – shan-uh-kees – Untitled (I am noel o)

    “Untitled (I am noel o)” by shan-uh-kees is a sonic representation of Japanese-American sculptor Leo Amino’s works. As many of Amino’s works are angular and metallic in form, we pictured what radio frequencies these works would pick up and sonified the imaginings. We placed the sculptures (often that have never been together) in an imagined space and choreographed the movement of the pieces in sonic environment. Untitled (I am noel o) is also a dedication to O Mahony’s uncle Noel who introduced a young O Mahony to ham Radio in 1982 and who joined the radio waves during the pandemic.

    shan-uh-kees is comprised of Dr. Dave O Mahony (Limerick, Ireland) and Dr. Ralph Lewis (Urbana, IL, USA). They make and perform radio art, live electronics, and video art in community, concert hall, and virtual spaces. In Summer 2022, the duo received a Westben Composer Performer Residency (Ontario, Canada) where they created “From Ireland to Ojai” with Maddi Baird and Alex Hawthorn, which has since been programmed in international conferences. Current projects include developing live/remote hybrid workshops to introduce live electronics and Eurorack to community members that use as much grant-funded and free-to-use software and hardware as possible.

    4 – Meta Golova – Evasive Space    

    This sound work, as a part of Lena’s doctorate research about “Parque Minhocão” describes this new experience of urban occupation, sense of belonging and engagement in its controversial aspect. The contemporary context calls us to be culturally sensitive, to interact with local architecture. Place-making is needed to perpetuate existing cultural visual habits, and therefore, to create more unique and authentic spaces. There is no protection, no salvation from this everyday routine, from this complicity in everything.  Always and everywhere we communicate with a space and with all fears a place draws us into its play. Are we afraid to belong to the space in a different way?

    Meta Golova (Lena Kilina & Carlos Issa) began in 2022 in Sao Paulo, with the purpose of bridging new music and art genres, the divide between sound, multilingual poetry and visual arts. The group became the resident avant-garde sound theater ensemble in Brazil, Russia, China. Meta Golova’s poetry is multilingual (from Russian to Chinese, Portuguese, English, Spanish). It invokes a discourse of power figures, deities and commands being doubted and debated. Challenging the culture of submission to circumstance, this audio envelope brings the audience to think about tragic situation the all humanity is facing now with a hope and sense of will for the future transformation.  https://www.youtube.com/@metagolova/videos

    5 – Meryll Hardt – Drom vāta śunel ćirla

    A bestiary of cats, dogs, elephants and reptiles meets prepared piano, and whispering voices turning into tornadoes (probably because its author grew up with Twister and Jurassic Park). The title is blending two languages, Romany and Sanskrit. Between a resting circus and the gods from ancient India, spirits of a little-known journey are exhumed with great perseverance in the now immobile caravan.  A shapeshifter, beyond genders, animal, human, even meteorological raises with its voice gradually giving way to the pure energy of the synthesizer.

    6 – Johnny Dixon – Gunslung

    7 – Edward Ruchalski – Radio Voices (1)

    The source material was recorded from a short-wave receiver via the Wide-band WebSDR site, University of Twente. The various beeps, static and voices, were processed by EQ, filters, and pitch shifting. This piece made from radio transmitted sounds is intended for radio broadcast.

    Edward Ruchalski is a composer, sound artist and field recordist. His compositions have been performed at the Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, Mass MoCA, Symphony Space on Broadway and elsewhere. In 2020, Ruchalski’s acousmatic work, “Refined Localities”, was selected for inclusion in the exhibition, Audiosphere, at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid, Spain.Ruchalski has been an artist in residence at Wave Farm in Acra, N.Y. During the residency he created a concept for a radio show with co-host Stephen Bradley called Bells, Bugs, Whispers & Plinks(WGXC 90.7FM).

    8 – Nienke Terpsma – 60 secs radio:Proposal for non-action

    “Glaneuses et Vers de Terre” is a collection of research practices by choreographer Emilie Gallier, visual artist Nina Boas and artist/editor Nienke Terpsma on ways of being with landscape as we are absorbed within it rather than as a detached spectacle. These 60 sec. are a re-digestion of some materials gleaned for “Gleaners and the Worms, or Book Worms and the Worm Book”, a 60 min. performance in spring 2023. Part of it was a grafting of living soil. You hear bits of a conversation between Emilie and living soils gardener Cyril Gallier, a bird that can count to 11, streetsounds of Rotterdam, voice, Blippo Box and Qbird.

  • Absolute Value of Noise and Anna Friz - Morse Mountain
    24 August 2023  11:00 pm - 25 August 2023  12:00 am

    description
    The mountain sleeps; dreams stone. Festooned with power lines and communications towers, striated by long-ago meltwater and creeks that have since evaporated, blown bald by the prevailing winds. Some day, come earthrise or landfall, the mountain will walk out into the sea. Until then, micro-movements in the sediment and rock are its uneasy speech, while the antennae atop its massive breathing shoulders continue to call and respond.

    The piece is inspired by coastal mountains that have been implicated in human long distance communications and listening, whether occupied by overland telephone and telegraph cables, military monitoring stations, radio and acoustic beacons for ships and airplanes, or 5G cell towers. Morse Mountain considers the ephemeral human occupations of signal space as they overlay mineral durations; fireflies buzzing around ancient beings that have merely paused to rest.

    Anna Friz and Absolute Value of Noise (Peter Courtemanche) are Canadian sound and radio artists. Anna Friz creates self-reflexive radio for broadcast, installation and performance. Her compositions reflect upon public media culture, environment and infrastructure (human and extra-human, acoustic, and electro-magnetic), time perception, and speculative fiction. Absolute Value of Noise creates radio and outdoor installations. He likes to work with “gadgetry” – custom turntables, lamp filaments, wire coils, high voltage ionizers, magnetic transceivers, and “little electronic brains” that observe and respond to local phenomena. His outdoor works are a comment on bio-diversity, extinction, and fragility.

  • Andrew O'Connor-The Waves Were Coming In Like Arabian Stallions Gradually Lapping Into Seahorses
    25 August 2023  11:00 pm - 11:30 pm

    description

    Drawing inspiration from the Patti Smith lyric the name comes from and John Luther Adams’ “Become Ocean” this immersive soundscape composition explores theduality of the ocean as both peaceful and furious.  Using scientific recordings made by the National Oceanic Agency of America and samples from Become Ocean, processed into waves of drone and sonority, then layered into a multi-directional soundscape inspired by the currents, tides and undertows that lay beneath whatwe see on the surface. This work explores the ocean, its capacity to be both tranquil and serene one moment, intensely terrifying the next.

    Andrew O’Connor is an independent radio producer, and sound artist based in Toronto Canada. 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, as well as featured at Le Grande Rencontre des Art Mediatiquein Gaspe, the Third Coast Filmless Festival in Chicago, and the UK International Radio Drama Festival. Andrew currently hosts and produces a weekly pirate radio show called DISCO 3000 on his long running, clandestine radio project Parkdale Pirate Radio.

  • Boris Allenou – Cohabit: an artistic exploration around two instruments oddly distant from each other
    25 August 2023  11:30 pm - 26 August 2023  12:00 am

    description

    This creation is based of two free improvisations.
    In the first part, the piano is being used in two different ways: pressing the keys to produce notes and taping with my hands and fingers all around the body of the piano, avoiding the keys.
    The second part of this creation is a delicate and processed control of feedback coming from a No-Input Mixer. A mixer playing itself. On witch the output is plugged to the input, etc…

    My goal here was to embrace weirdness, trying to make these two instrument cohabit while leaving them their own space. It is, in fact, an ode to the aesthetic of the medium radio: the meeting place of sounds par excellence, where cohabitation is happening.

    Boris Allenou is an artist and musician who explores the limitless forms of Sound Art and Sound Ecology, by investigating the social role of sonic Eco-systems surrounding us.

    Boris Allenou’s research use interactive sound installations, talks, workshops, music, radio creations and sound exploration events as mediums to reflect on, propose and conceptualize possible roles, places, meanings, interactions and aesthetics of sounds in our societies.

  • La Quadrature - Ce qui brûle bien (What burns well)
    26 August 2023  12:45 am - 1:30 am

    description
    Writer, voice: Stéphanie Pelletier
    Artistic director: Céline Jantet (La Quadrature)
    Sound artist: Magali Babin
    Produced by: La Quadrature

    Stéphanie Pelletier lives on Cinquième rang de Padoue. A lost end of road halfway between the huge St.-Laurent river and farmers county side. From the threshold of her house-burrow, she tells the real and dreamed story of what surrounds her. Ce qui brûle bien is a collection of wonderful tales and life stories placed in a large soundscape where the voice emerge. Stéphanie Pelletier’s words are impulsive, generous, raw like the lands of Bas-Saint-Laurent in Québec, Canada. In the instability of the world, the author tells us the courage it takes to continue to imagine.

    Stéphanie Pelletier is artistic director of Exil (literary shows) and author. She has been actively involved in the literary scene since 2009 by getting involved in literary shows, meetings with authors and many other evenings where literature is in the spotlight. La Quadrature is a contemporary storytelling artistic organization that has been producing sound stories since 2018 where speech and presence are thought through sound materials.

  • Cosmic Homeostasis - Broken Telephone Project
    26 August 2023  1:30 am - 2:00 am

    description
    The ‘Broken Telephone’ project was proposed by Cosmic Homeostasis group member Mira Martin-Gray early in lockdown days as a way to stay engaged and connected. The recording proceeded as an additive process, similar to when artists were trading casettes or works circulated in the mail art network. In effect it was an assemblage or collage built layer upon layer as the recording passed from one person to the next. This was an experiment for the group since all previous recordings had been done in person. Rather than a game of ‘cumulative error’, the transmission chain transcended space and time.

    “Cosmic Homeostasis is both a loose collective of sound-makers and the events they convene at.”     “…there are usually no fixed musical instructions, outside of some general prompts to start a piece — no one needs to read sheet music, or know what key they’re in, or count beats. In a large ensemble, there are enough voices that one can always pause and listen to everyone else without worrying they have to be contributing from moment to moment, and the division between ensemble and audience can fade away into the aether.” Joe Strutt – initiator of CH.

    description
    Manipulated soundscape work, with effects and processes to highlight patterns of recorded nature.
    Based on the Drone genre, I worked with the recordings to simulate a dreamlike trip, at dusk in the lonely and rough Argentinean pampa.
    elaborated on the basis of records of:
    Rain
    Thunder
    Buzzing bees
    Electric mowers
    Washing machines
    Cow mooing
    Equines
    Pigs
    Birds
    Cabinetmaking tools and metal carpentry.
    Year 2019, mixed and mastered in 2022.
    Part of a series of contrete, abstract compositions of intervened soundscapes called DRONICA.

    Franco Falistoco is a sound artist. He mixes the recording of field recordings with interviews along with digital and analogue sound processing.

  • Simon Le Boggit - Therefore
    26 August 2023  2:30 am - 6:00 am

    description
    THEREFORE is a “perpetual” audio-poem which organically mutates and regenerates itself from a stanzacloud of verse. Each whispered line of the poem is relentlessly shifting in relation to every other line, as the poem endlessly renews itself. This is the closest that its creator Simon Le Boggit has come to expressing a state of mind where the physical and psychological suffering caused by the arthritic autoimmune disease Ankylosing Spondylitis shifts the goalposts so randomly and rapidly that you don’t know what you are – let alone who you are, where you are, or where you are going…   Simon Le Boggit is a multimedia artist. He was born, inflated, and will eventually deflate.

    1 – Female Laptop Orchestra – Unavailable at the Moment

    https://femalelaptoporchestra.wordpress.com/

    2 – Zuriñe F Gerenabarrena – Nattyl

    Nattyl, a word in the Swedish language that means “howl the night”, uses the voice as a point of departure and return, which is influenced as memory and reflection. The brief poetry of Alejandra Pizarnik is the stimulus from which the structure of the work arises, connecting word and feeling throughout the piece. I use the sound of the word that I cut, extended, atomize and restructure, to create new textures that interrelate with each other, and turn towards the listener, as a derived form of question in listening. In this work I have explored the way in which language, phonetics, can move in different layers or collide like surfaces and continue to hit our memory. Voice: Michael John Gallen. Work composed at Studio Alpha in Vicc, Visby in May 2022.

    Born in the Basque Country, Gerenabarrena is a versatile composer, has written pieces for orchestra, chamber ensembles, theater, dance, animation, sound installations and multidisciplinary projects. She has been invited to several international forums and also worked as a resident artist.           http://www.zfgerenabarrena.com

    3 – Akari Komura – In a Flock

    The piece encompasses field recordings from train station platforms and ticket gates of Keio Line in Tokyo, Japan. The piece is oriented by the listening perception of someone awaiting with different purposes at a train station. The opening soundscape is narrated by a listener awaiting a train, highlighting a recording of a bird call broadcasted at a platform to announce the train arrival. After a brief moment of waiting at the railroad crossing, the scene shifts to waiting at the ticket gate. As a crowd of passengers enter and exit the gateway, the scanning of IC transportation passes generates an overlay of rhythmic beeps. Busy footsteps and unintelligible chattering portrays the scrambled soundscape of swarming travelers.

    Akari Komura (b.1996) is a Japanese composer-vocalist whose works center around contemplative engagement with listening and soundmaking. Her interest in somatic practice and embodied consciousness is central to her creative process. 

    4 – Marc Rose – Twisted Epiphanies: Message in a Bottle

    Spoken word piece written and read by Laurence Overrmire. Post production music, sound design by Marc Rose. Produced for “Fusebox” radio program.  Marc Rose is a composer and sound designer living in Portland, Oregon.   http://www.TheFuseboxShow.com        

    5 – Raquel Stolf – Howls (Slow Listening)

    Decelerated howls from/to the radio (four meditative howls from Quico). A “prepared” fragment from a collection of dog howls recorded since 2008.    http://raquelstolf.com            

    6 – Mansoor Hosseini & Shadi Bazeghi – Flowmatic Blood Moon

    Poem and voice by Shadi Bazeghi. Music by Mansoor Hosseini.

    A therapeutic discussion about trauma of war. Past and present happen at the same time. What is the language of vulnerable people? The music joins the poems in Flowmatic to open up the hard-hitting topic of the battelfield. But nostalgia and hope rise high to give energy and belief.

    Mansoor Hosseini is a composer and script writer. He has created works for music ensembles, theaters and poets of different cultures. He increasingly works with sound art as a mean of storytelling for radio and podcast projects. Mansoor has also made short art videos, teaming up with international film makers and taking part in music and video festivals.

    7 – Vincent Eoppolo – Kirke

    Vincent Eoppolo is an American composer from Wilmington, Delaware. Initially trained as both a Classical and Jazz guitarist, Eoppolo began composing and recording electronic music in the early 1980’s shortly after the development of MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) and the introduction of affordable home computers and recording equipment.

    Iris Chun-Tzu Chang (TW) is an artist and researcher currently based in Taiwan. Like sound as clay, Iris crafts her work through drawing, poetry, installation, field recording and improvised performance. Exploring embodied perception at the thresholds between the tangible / intangible, audible / inaudible, conscious / subconscious, her research focuses on the themes of sonic memory, imaginary sound, interspecies listening, and synesthetic experiences. In her art practices she seeks to grasp the fragility of sonic memory as a self-therapeutic process through which tension and identity is formed, deformed and reformed.             irischuntzuchang.com

    10 – Florine Mougel –  Pendule

    This short acousmatic poem is based on Raymond Queneau´s “La Pendule”. It gathers music, language and meaning as one entity, so that, the content and it´s container became undifferentiated. Exclusively composed from the author´s own body noises, phonetic hash as well as guttural an gastric sounds, evoke the fateful swallowing of a pendulum.

    Florine Mougel is a multi-media artist perpetually relocating herself. After studying cinema-audiovisual at the Sorbonne and art and media at ESADMM, she obtained her Masters in 2021 at the University of Art and Design in Linz. Since then, she joined the electroacoustic class at the Conservatory of Music in Amiens. Her poetic work addresses our relationship to the mediated contemporary world through the prism of phenomenology, and unfolds around the technological and collective unconscious, the coexistence of opposites, playfulness and distraction.

  • HyMettus Woods - Sri Violet Rainy Afternoon Plant Composition
    26 August 2023  9:30 am - 10:00 am

    description

    Sri Violet, a half hour radio piece created specifically for Radiophrenia 2023 and composed by the African Violet that lives in the Scully-Thurston family kitchen. Using electromagnetic biofeedback converted to MIDI signal, the plant sings. It was a drizzly overcast but warming into a spring day that delighted violet to sing. Interestingly, she sings in the style of Terry Riley improvisations, thus the Vedicish title.

    This is a research element of Synthetic/Natural, an art installation sponsored by Duke Arts for Duke University’s centennial. The installation will explore and amplify interactions between sun, water, wind, earth and plants. The results will be broadcast on a low wattage FM transmitter.

    Christopher Scully-Thurston is a sound sculptor, installation artist, performer and composer living in Raleigh, NC, USA. He is a recent United Arts grant winner. As a Duke University Artist in Residence in 2021-23 with the team of Austin F Powers and Jennifer Scully-Thurston, they created SineWaves in the Triangle for the Agora Gallery and are currently designing, a full building art-creation covering the Rubenstein Arts Center at Duke University to be called Synthetic/Natural.

    Using his long-time alias HyMettus Woods and/or as XSTSound, he is featured on the compilation Isolation and Rejection v3 and Rental Yields both released by Front and Follow Manchester UK; A Chattering of Runes Music based on Petroglyphs released by an eEl recordings; Dark Ambient 2 released by Sounds for the Soul. His release for the compilation remembering science fiction author Philip K Dick “Dreams Out of Joint ” on Machina Ad Noctem, Mexico City. HyMettus Woods is proud to have been broadcast a number of times as part of the Dark Outside. The XSTSound music-concrete radio show No Conflick was broadcast worldwide as part of Radiophrenia from the Centre for Contemporary Art, Glasgow, Scotland.

    Christopher also creates for dance on film and choreographers, collaborating closely with his wife Jennifer Scully-Thurston’s Rogue Dancer Productions and film festival.

  • Karmen Ponikvar - Look, the snowflakes are moving upwards
    26 August 2023  10:00 am - 10:30 am

    description
    The work is about approaching a new, unfamiliar place with searching and curious ear. In its silent exploration, it is an attempt to capture urban noises that reveal the poetry of the space, taking radio as an opportunity to stimulate listening as a communal activity and to refresh our acoustic sensitivity. Highlighted recording was made in March 2023 on a day that snow made its rare appearance, leaving sonic fingerprints and setting the atmosphere for this multi-layered soundscape composition. Musical narrative revolves around transformation of field recordings, gradually blending with modulated feedback, offering an immersion in a meditative state. Karmen Ponikvar (1994) is a Slovenian sound artist and researcher in the field of electronic and electroacoustic music. Her practice includes recording, listening, composing and performing with the use of analog electronics, modular synths, field recordings and computer processing. As a sound synthesist, she works and performs under the duo Lip Rouge, and has released works on labels Senzorama (2021), Kamizdat (2022) and a debut EP on AmbientSoup (2022). She is a co-founder of experimental event series Zvočni Lišp in Ljubljana (Slovenia), which supports local artists, and breathes new life into abandoned places.

  • Maria Anna Foti Rossitto - The Present
    26 August 2023  10:30 am - 11:00 am

    description
    The Present focuses on the story of Rod, following him on his journey of rediscovering himself and his needs. It explores his attitude towards Life before and after the fantasy inciting incident he experiences. The story relies on the narration of Live, an omniscient narrator who observes and objectively describes Rod’s adventures. Life also gives voice to his feelings, inner thoughts, and memories.

    The radio drama exploits sound design to stimulate an audience’s mental imagery and identification with a fictional character. It uses features such as figurative and literal sound design, spatial positioning, and subjective auditory perspective.

  • Clarry M - Don't Keep Calm live in the studio
    26 August 2023  11:00 am - 11:45 am

    description


    This piece which uses found sounds and field recordings intended to enhance specific human emotions. This is influenced by the popular app ‘Calm’, which features soothing soundscapes for users to listen to help them relax, meditate or get to sleep. My hypothetical version of the app widens out the range of emotionally enhancing soundscapes to include less desirable or sonically familiar emotions such as Anger, Excitement, Annoyance, Contentment, Disgust, Relief and many more.

    Whereas the Calm app features sounds like ‘rain on tent’, ‘pink noise’ and ‘the enchanted moss garden’, the ‘Don’t Keep Calm’ app may feature ‘drunken street shouting’, ‘audiences clapping’, ‘overly exuberant commercial radio adverts’ or ‘car alarm at 5am’.

    The piece posits that all emotions are valid and can have productive outcomes, and questions the eternal quest for calmness and tranquility endorsed by the wellness industry.

    1) Nwando Ebizie – I Seduce (3:15)

    I Seduce’ is the latest genre-blurring Afrofuturist sonic vision from multidisciplinary artist Nwando Ebizie.

    In her radically unclassifiable style, the left-field polymath creates a dizzying convergence of experimental electronic music, call-and-response chants, Afro-Cuban drums and layers of dance-inducing, frenetic polyrhythms – spinning speculative fiction with the ritual cultures of the Black Atlantic, refracted through her signature mind-bending sound.

    Inspired by the writings of poet, writer and activist Audre Lorde, the single dives into the profound sensuality deep within all women and ecstatically declares it as a liberating, poetic force to be embraced and reckoned with.

    26 August 2023  12:00 pm - 12:30 pm

    description
    “5α-Reductase 2 Deficiency” is a loosely sequential montage of edited found and created sounds created while the author fixated on disciplinarian violence, traditionalist child grooming, self-immolation fantasies, queer venereal horror, childhood trauma, and extreme examples of communication breakdown.

    Originated in 2013, Torschlusspanik is a middle-aged Tennessee gal’s outlet for mostly unpleasant and nonrealistic music that has been summarized as “maximalist electro-acoustic” in the past. A wide scramble of sounds are crudely forced into sound collage and (vague) song format intended for weaponizing emotional overstimulation and mulling over lost opportunity as time is near expired.

    Colour Organ Cycles, Environment as a Drone

    By Leslie Deere



    Vocal Processing – Tom Mudd 

    Leslie Deere will broadcast a gesture-controlled audio-visual piece of long-form drone music referencing the work of Éliane Radique and Pauline Oliveros. The transmission will combine, for the first time, vignettes of speech inspired by Margaret Tait’s Colour Poems; a meditation on Scotland’s changing landscape in the form of short quotes and passages from locals interspersed with live ambient improvisation, created through real-time gestures in the studio. The broadcast references Oliveros’ humanitarian intentions with listening and ‘sonic energy’ as she defined it, reconfiguring the subject / object, performer / audience relationship – triggering auditory fantasy, memory and healing.

    The interviewees were:

    Stuart Braithwaite
    Sarah Forrest
    David Archibald
    Becky Šik
    Matthew Docherty
    Steven Harrington
    Ginny Hutchinson
    Lori Rebel

    Leslie Deere is a researcher, artist, teacher and soundbath facilitator based in Glasgow. Recently she’s been creating work that combines gesture with audio-visuals. Currently Leslie is completing a PhD at the GSA looking at AV performance, the language of affect in art and creating new architectures for spectatorship. Her practice is multimedia, working with both hi-tech and analogue processes. Deere’s work is experiential, minimal and colourful while evoking encounters that traverse the veil between the abstract and the metaphysical. Her current work is informed by Pauline Oliveros, Éliane Radique, Ann Veronica Janssens and Hilma af Klint.

    1 – Chin Ting Chan – Shadow Objects

    Shadow Objects is inspired by observing the shadow of a three-dimensional object cast on a two-dimensional plane. The shape of it looks distorted, broken, and unrecognizable at times, while moving in a sporadic yet expressive way. Using this as a metaphor, one can discover endless beauty in the struggle and imperfection of life. Eventually, they become appreciative of what might appear to be fragile, or even faulty on the surface. 
    The samples are primarily processed and manipulated with Tasty Chips Electronics’ GR-1 Hardware Granular Synthesizer before additional post-processing edits on the computer.

    2 – Jeff Gburek – Left Alone

    Left Alone is the first of a series of poems written spontaneously and recited in the field. It is an experiment in fusing automatic writing, spoken word, and outdoor environments. One could say it’s a form of journalism where the human is slightly off-center, giving rise to liminal & laminal concerns.

    Jeff Gburek is a poet, sound-artist, musician & traveller currently based in Poznan, Poland. Jeff Gburek has bandcamp, soundcloud sites. His blog can be searched either by using his name, spelled G-B-U-R-E-K or by typing in Transparent Abelard.  https://jeffgburekprojects.bandcamp.com/

    3 – Lloyd Dunn – We See Beneath

    A dry description of the locale will not satisfy the task of describing the place; especially when the experience of it interleaves objective perception, memory, dilated time, and all the other observations that come from being in an unfamiliar place over a period of days. And so we are left with this set of allusions. Sound piece composed with recordings made during Sonic Futures Residencies in Port Cetate (Romania), a program by SEMI SILENT.

    Lloyd Dunn is a multimedia artist working in machine-based media for 40 years. During the 1980s and 90s he edited and published the graphic arts magazines Photostatic and Retrofuturism, which were circulated worldwide and are collected by many prominent archives. In 1987, Dunn, together with some close friends, co-founded the Tape-beatles, who were among a few early recording experimenters whose work explicitly challenged intellectual property and copyright. Since 2009, Dunn’s main project has been the project nula.cc, the online presence for a series of filecasts initiated to further explore his long-standing interest in machine-based art forms, appropriation and collage, time-based media and design. Dunn currently lives and works in Prague.

    4 – Ruaridh Law – Three Tells: Travelling Light

    Over the last three years, Ayrshire-based artist Ruaridh Law has been producing films for Repeater Books’ online platform which place the human voice – and the stories it tells – at the centre. Here, shorn of images, are three of these stories, touching on obsession, childhood, spiralling thoughts, and human relationships.

    Ruaridh Law is a sound artist & musician based in Ayrshire, Scotland. Over 25 years he’s performed in groups, collaborations and solo across a wide range of spaces, as writer, DJ, perfomer and artist. Latterly, works have ranged from intimate audio performance, to large-scale outdoor works combining sound walks, improvised performance and experimental storytelling. These have manifested themselves in a tarot deck that generates music, sequential stories told over film and radio, right-wing propaganda twisted into more worthwhile content and a walk through a forest and its imagined mythologies in the dead of night – as well as countless music releases.

    5 – Juliana Capes – Physical culture raise your vibration

    “GOWO MANGO” an album of song sketches by visual artist and describer Juliana Capes,  commissioned as expanded audio description by artist Laura Aldridge,  as part of an audio interpretation of her recent monograph THINGS THAT SOAK YOU. Capes’s descriptions of Aldridge’s sculptures have morphed through conversation into sketches of songs, through exploration of Laura’s working methods of expanded collage, shared enthusiasm about musical influences and love of mash up and the encouragement burgeoning friendship and collaboration.

    Juliana Capes has worked in the field of integrated and expanded visual description within her own practise and those of others since 2015. Juliana Capes is a multi disciplinary visual artist.  Her current artwork is influenced by her experiences of working as a visual describer in Scottish galleries and museums, the unrelenting beauty of the world and by the processes of feeling, seeing and believing. She has recently shown work at Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh, Edinburgh Art Festival, Alchemy Film Festival, CCA , Glasgow and Campleline Gallery.

    6 – Marco Dibeltulu – Sguardo contemporaneo

    This piece is inspired by urban life and pollution. Exhaust fumes and waste modify the appearance of a city to such an extent that traces of the past remain only in one’s memory. The image of what the physical world was like before overlaps with what it is today – polluted and therefore altered. Memory filters out the “additions”, and acts as a sort of virtual “garbage disposal” that restores the environment to its original value: what would a contemporary glance pass on? Are the younger generations able to feel the same discomfort as those who have historical memory?

    Marco Dibeltulu (Alghero, 1971), studied at the Conservatory of Cagliari Composition, Choral Music and Electronic Music. 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; 360 degrees of 60×60 – Vox Novus, New York City; ICMC 2012 – Ljubljana; NYCEMF 2014, 2015 – New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival. He performed at Festivals: Synthèse – Bourges; Zeppelin 2008 – Barcelona; Audio Art Circus 2008 – University of Arts, Osaka; 60×60 Dance – Theatre Square, London; AKOUSMA XV – AKOUSMA_INTERNATIONAL – Montréal.  http://www.marcodibeltulu.it

    7 – Ilaria Boffa – Make Me Ready

    How can we be change ready in this volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous era?
    Field recording taken at the Antique Market/Mercatino delle Cose d’Altri Tempi, Piazzola sul Brenta (Padua) – Italy.

    8 – Nacho Cordoba Delgado – This Tape Machine Destroys Time 05: Side A

    TTMDT is a collection series made from January to December 2012. One tape/digital release per month out on MAGIA. The first 6 were created by MAGIA founder Ignacio Córdoba and the rest by close friends and fellow artists Gianluca Elia (IT/DK), Simon Forchhammer (DK), Michał Biel (PL/DK), bjarkebbbb (DK), Louise Vind Nielsen (GE/DK) and the mysterious Shoji Mariah (BR/JP). All the releases focus on tapes, tape machines and machines as destroyers of time, of perception and of the perception of time. Samples, coding, looping, hacking, field recording, plunderphonics and improvisation share the detritus of Time.

  • The Lake - Works for Radio
    26 August 2023  2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

    description
    For Works for Radio the five artists have made five new, unique works to be played at The Lake. The works will be presented on March 7th 2023 at a listening event at Cinemateket. Hereafter the works will be in rotation at http://www.thelakeradio.com and presented at Borealis festival (NO), Radiophrenia (SCT) and Colaboradio (DE). Radioart as a genre has a long tradition in public service-institutions where artists, writers and composers have made work specifically for the ether. And as a way to rethink this somehow underrated artistic format, we have annually commissioned new pieces of sound that challenges what art for radio can sound like. This year’s artists have been chosen in collaboration with a jury consisting of Radiophrenia (SCT), Colaboradio (DE), Borealis Festival (NO) and The Lake Radi0.

    #1 Kari Robertson – SLEEP UP / WAKE DEEP

    SLEEP UP / WAKE DEEP is a restless meditation on sleep and sleeplessness.  Oriented to, and within the body, the piece lingers in the discord between internal, circadian rhythms and clock (work) time. SLEEP UP / WAKE DEEP includes augmented voice, field recordings and instruments as it  loosely moves through the course of a day without sleep.

    #2 Nicole L’Huillier – Lágrimas de volcán

    This lament/love song contains the story of the impossible love between a volcano and a mountain, their tears, lithium, human extraction, obsession, and damage. It is arranged by the sounds of cracking minerals, effervescent activity in salt ponds, saturated hums from the Atacama desert winds, synths, and other textures.

    #3 Asmaa Jama – The Salt Worshippers

    The Salt Worshippers is set against Lake Assal, a salt lake located in the Danakil depression between Djibouti and Ethiopia. The work draws on an ancient tale in East Africa/West Asia of the two star-crossed lovers Qeys and Leyla. In Jama’s piece Qeys and Leyla are situated at Lake Assal where one is a salt worker and the other is from the lake.  

    Credits:
    Voices: Asmaa Jama, Mohamed Jama, and Gouled Ahmed.
    Writing + sound design: Asmaa Jama

    #4 Jenny Hval – Smoking

    “Smoking started out as a series of recordings I made in Oslo wandering around, meeting people, and traveling on public transportation, but keeping my phone under pillows or clothing. I wanted to make something casual, a collage of everyday life, but from under the skin. Of course this led me to start writing about mothers and daughters… and cigarettes.”

    #5 Linda Lamignan – Broken Bridge

    Broken Bridge is a piece structured as song, floating amidst sounds of water and soft synths. Opened by the words: “you fall through the cracks, when you try to walk across that broken bridge”.

  • Joey Ryken - Hypnogogic Piece 1: Prepared Ambient Improvisation for Electronic Instruments and a Sleepyhead
    26 August 2023  3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

    description
    A live ambient improvisation with effected casiotone and vocals while going in and out of sleep. The performance is a durational attempt at making improvised ambient music while staying as closely as possible to a dream state. The performance will be in a prepared sleep environment that would have constant sonic drone ambience, making any ‘dead air’ an agent of ambient duration within the improvisation. I have many years of experience maintaining a hypnagogic state (transition from waking consciousness to sleep), and am interested in experimenting to activate this in a live performance context for radio, to see what crosses over from dream states into live broadcast.

    I am an Latinx-American artist, researcher, and educator based in Glasgow, UK. My art practice and academic research explore experimental approaches to occult magic and altered states of consciousness, using drawing, sound, moving image, text, and absurdist performance. My work is mainly concerned with how to report on mystical experience formed from inter-combinations of the mythically sublime and the comically banal.

  • Simon James & Angus Carlyle - Flux and Phantoms
    26 August 2023  4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

    description
    Sheltered by a concrete harbour arm and a shingle and steel embankment built on sunken ships, Shoreham Port houses a sewage treatment works, a power station, a rock processing plant, a steel factory, wharves, lorry parks and burger vans: a backdrop for swimmers, nudists, cyclists, surfers, fishers and summer picnickers.

    As they engage with the unprocessed field recordings from the zone around the canal lock, listeners are invited to use another device to simultaneously mix in “phantom frequencies” and recreate a phenomena encountered at the site: the appearance of enigmatic drones and tones at the edges of the acoustic atmosphere.



    Simon James is a self trained sound artist whose work is exploratory and instinctive, focussed on timbral shaping, finding the sounds in between the sounds and the relationship between these and field recordings.

    http://www.simonsound.co.uk

    Angus Carlyle explores environments as embodiments of stress and relief, with listening becoming writing, recordings, photographs and films (and very rarely performances). He often works alone but finds collaboration better and more enjoyable.

  • butteredfeet - Christmas Special
    26 August 2023  5:00 pm - 5:30 pm

    description

    Project from two writers based in Newcastle upon Tyne. butteredfeet is a fiction

    Each episode takes us to an ill-timed moment when characters tragic lives are steeped in metaphor and irony.

    It’s poignant, sharp and bitterly familiar.

    Suzie is better than musky Arnold, but fears a life alone with Shiraz. The Logans are Bonnie and Clyde drinking Monster cans. Dylan and Thomas enjoy a dusty market. Sam and Bex are a new-build couple laced in lies. Aiden and Beth love crisps as much as each other. Catherine and James are riddled with pretentiousness and their Peloton.  Caitlin is a desperately lonely insomniac but has the best bubble writing.

    butteredfeet are Phil McDonald and Chris Smith. They’re writers from Newcastle upon Tyne also working in teaching and men’s mental health. This project is their way of commenting on the absurdity, hilarity and poignant of relationships. They’re mostly inspired by standing in the queue at Morrisons.

    26 August 2023  5:30 pm - 5:45 pm

    description
    A live radio experiment broadcast across two networks simultaneously as part of Radiophrenia 2023. 

    For the full spatial experience, you need two independent playout systems one tuned to Resonance FM Resonance FM | Home and the other to Radiophrenia (in Glasgow on 87.9FM Listen – Radiophrenia  positioned at different places in your home or listening space. It’s a series of manipulated historical train recordings and a way of spatialising the audio simply, no prior knowledge or spatial equipment needed. The material is composed and arranged in a way that the tracks interact continuously so that each listener hears something different and unique to that moment in their own time.

    Jo’s sound works take the form of a sound essay, abstracting field recordings relating to a particular social or political concept, through synthesis and spatialisation.
    Her work has been shown at the Museum of London, Tower Bridge exhibition centre, Tate Modern, and played on BBC Radio 3, Channel 4. Her PhD explored experimental electroacoustic composers Beatriz Ferreyra, Éliane Radigue, Delia Derbyshire and Teresa Rampazzi, on their methods for creating new electronic sounds in 1960s analogue studios. Jo has contributed sound installations to three international Terror on Tour conferences. Her re-mix of ‘Carbon Cycle’ contributed to Hannah Peel’s 2021 Mercury Nomination.

  • Production 8 - Astrid Björklund - An Oneirophonic Account of a Venture to the Second Moon
    26 August 2023  6:00 pm - 6:30 pm

    description
    In 2019, a new natural satellite was discovered orbiting our moon. Things have not been the same since.

    One day you are here. And then suddenly you’re not here. You’re not anywhere. In “An Oneirophonic Account of a Venture to the Second Moon” a disembodied voice recollects its memories of a failed expedition to the satellite orbiting Earth’s moon: the second moon. This piece – part science fiction radio drama, part fragmented soundscape – weaves a sonic tapestry that attempts to explain what it’s like to be consumed by the unknown – something that words alone can’t describe – creating a narrative set outside time and reality.

    Written, recorded and edited by Astrid Björklund.

    Several voices in this work have been synthesised using ElevenLabs.

    All things in this piece are fictional, except for the things that are not.

    Astrid Björklund is a Swedish visual artist and amateur sound weaver. Her work draws on the theories of the “Chthonic” (of relating to, or in, the underground), fiction, mythmaking, and thoughts surrounding the uncertainty, awe and ambiguity of life, with a pinch of existential dread. Noise, music and ambience for this work have been created using various synthesised, found, created and recorded sounds.

  • David Dorado - Hydra
    26 August 2023  6:30 pm - 7:00 pm

    description
    Hydra is a sound piece devised by David Dorado. It explores the multiple ways in which humans have related to water in its various states.

    The presence of the human hand in the water cycle generates a spiral which is the backbone of our history.

    Combining documentary, poetry and sound design, the piece reflects on water as a vital necessity and its ritualization across cultures , the symbolic dimension of ice and the deep sea and it also contemplates the sea as a frontier, as a garden of myths and as a mercantile ground.

    Musician and composer based in Barcelona creator of the musical projects Casa das Feras and Malatesta, and collaborator with other bands  such as Wolf Saxon and Ghost Number.

    He also works with music and sound for cinema and publicity: original soundtracks,  location sound, foley/SFX, and sound design.

    As a sound artist  he has made sound collages and sound fiction pieces for several media or the sound documentary Night Ballad for the Rio Grande.

    Since 2021 he directs the cicle of radioart listening sessions called Nit associated to Zumzeig Cinema in Barcelona

  • Live-to-Air - Nwando Ebizie & Tom Richards / Catalina Barosso Luque & Feronia Wennborg / Han
    26 August 2023  7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

    description
    Nwando Ebizie & Tom Richards – The Great Unravelling

    Two artists come together and move apart – entangling themselves and their idiosyncratic polymathic practices (including Black Atlantic ritual cultures, minimalism, formalism, rave cultures, analogue synthesis and machine building, performance art, neurodivergent led sensory design, neurophenomenology) and unravelling again – revealing the core of a constantly expanding Venn diagram. A multisensory, psychedelic, polyrhythmic mythic feast of movement, light, poetry and sound unfolds and you are invited into this liminal space for a spiraling cyclic ritual.

    Nwando Ebizie is a constellation point for a spectrum of multidisciplinary works that call for RADICAL change. She challenges her audience to question their perceived realities through art personas, experimental theatre, neuroscience, music and African diasporic ritualistic dance. Carving out her own particular strand of Afrofuturism, she combines research into the neuroscience of perception (inspired by her own neurodiversity) and an obsession with science fiction with a ritualistic live art practice.

    Tom Richards is an artist, musician, DJ, researcher and instrument designer working in London UK. He is currently studying between Goldsmiths and the Science Museum for a practice led PhD on the life and work of Daphne Oram: electronic music pioneer, and founder member of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. His music has been described as ‘ritualistic post techno’ and takes influence from sources as diverse as minimalism, rave, polyrhythmic drumchoir music, industrial noise, and early electronic music technologies. His music is always live and always improvised.

    Catalina Barroso-Luque & Feronia Wennborg – Blue Egg Lovechild

    A narrative sound piece which imagines the creation of the world after lovers Day and Night accidentally break a small robin’s egg. The piece draws from research into creation myths, focusing on cycles of transformation and the imaginary landscapes in which these stories take place. The story’s environmental elements play the main characters in the work, with aural and vocal elements moving across four speakers to create highly sensory sonic environments which are equally salacious, wrathful and bright.

    Catalina Barroso-Luque constructs narratives inhabited by voices, images, bodies and objects. She interweaves different mediums to create stories and spaces that oscillate between fantastic/real, character/texture. Recent work includes poetic retellings of myths related to fertility and death within sound, drawing and sculpture.

    Feronia Wennborg works across sound, performance, installation and digital media. Her practice draws from points of intimacy to explore possibilities of reimagination. Working with material embedded in everyday life, Feronia applies processes of transcription, translation and digital transformation.

    Han – Hospital Radio 2071

    Hospital Radio 2071 is a longform radiophonic piece exploring the disintegration of the healthcare system, the body, and the planet. It draws from the current state of geriatric care, NHS staffing levels, transhumanism, degrowth, automation, biological data, and humility.

    Han is a DJ, producer, performer, sound designer, healthcare worker, and ex-biomedical engineer based in Glasgow. She is a resident DJ at La Cheetah, runs Events Research Programme (a monthly subscription-based events series that focuses mostly on local experimental musicians), and edits radical healthcare magazine The Guts of It. She likes to make weird music about institutions, informed by her commitment to a political asceticism.

    1 – Nicola Fumo Frattegiani – Contracted chest

    The radio was the invention that contracted the chest to the world. Noise is its foundation.

    “Contracted chest” is constructed entirely from manipulated noise and concrete sounds. The composition is a short narration of some moments of a day seen by an external observer: the listener, the voyeur who sees everything and hears everything. But vision and listening can never be clear, the veil of noise dominates impassive in its movement and presence.

    Nicola Fumo Frattegiani is an electroacoustic and audio-visual composer living in Perugia, Italy. His works have been presented at various national and international festivals. Author and performer, his research deals with electroacoustic music, sound for images, video, art exhibitions and compositions for theatrical performances. He is a Subject Expert in “Electroacoustic” and “Computer Music” at the Conservatory of Music of Perugia. He held the chair of Electroacoustic Music Composition at the Conservatory of Music of Messina.
    He is currently professor of Sound design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Macerata.

    2 – Maria Howard- Striations

    This sound piece is part of Tree/Column/Claw, a project which looks at the column as both a natural and architectural form. I am particularly interested in the idea of striations, or fluting, and how a binary pattern can be disrupted through writing, sculpture and sound. The piece consists of my attempts to ‘play’ a range of striated surfaces in Glasgow – such as the columns of GOMA, the dried husks of giant hogweed that grow by the Clyde and a washboard in the archive of the Women’s Library – as well as a field recording of pigeons’ wings.

    Maria Howard is a British-Italian artist based in Glasgow. Working primarily with text and sculpture, her research-led practice is concerned with the poetic and political connections between memory and imagination, site and material. She is the recipient of a Gillian Purvis Trust Award for New Writing and The Yellow Paper Prize, and has been shortlisted for the Fitzcarraldo Editions Essay Prize. She has undertaken residences with CCA Glasgow and Le18, Lyth Arts, Can Serrat and the Bothy Project, among others. She is currently a PhD candidate at Glasgow School of Art and a co-editor of Nothing Personal magazine.

    3 – Ron Coulter – ADPsT    

    ADPst was composed in 2023. It is acousmatic music, composed of digitally processed audio samples–modern musique concrète. It is a faded memory and memento mori.

    Ron Coulter is a percussionist, composer, and improviser.  He has presented at 100+ universities and toured internationally with the Glenn Miller Orchestra, L2Ork, Chicago Chamber Orchestra, Sam Newsome, Matthew Shipp, Vinny Golia, Hugh Ragin, David Murray, Tony Malaby, Nate Wooley, Sean Jones, Al Martino, Bolokada Condé, Youngstown Percussion Collective, Music from China, Tone Road Ramblers, and others.  He co-founded the Percussion Art Ensemble, Drm&Gtr, duende entendre, Marble Hammer, SeFa LoCo, and founded the Southern Illinois Improvisation Series and Creative Music Series.  Additional interests include noise, intermedia, interdisciplinary collaboration, and organizing Fluxconcerts.  Ron has composed 420+ works for various media.

    4 – Katie Semro    – Trust Me, I’m a Doctor

    Women are disproportionately affected by chronic illnesses, with one in every four women having an autoimmune disease. Daily life for these women can be a struggle, but their symptoms are often hard to treat. Through the layering and fragmentation of real-life stories from women across the United States, Trust Me I’m a Doctor examines the struggles these women face in their search for healing.

    Katie Semro is an audio creator making music, audio art, and documentaries. Semro’s audio installations have appeared at Sound Scene Fest 2022 in Washington, D.C. and Fountain Street Gallery in Boston. She will perform the piece Ebb & Flow which intertwines the perpetual flow of the natural world with the currents of human emotion, in NH, USA this June.  She has produced, edited, sound designed, and scored several audio documentaries, and her work has appeared on 39 radio. She also teaches Ableton Live and runs the online group Women with Live to create positive experiences for women with music technology.

    5 – Reni Hofmüller – Sensorium    

    The SENSORium is based on the Radio Cyborg Transmitter RCT, mainly to bring radio art into public space and to serve as a sound perception interface for the city of Graz. At the SENSORium there are sensors mounted for measuring the environment such as Geiger counter and radiation in general, temperature or humidity and also fine dust. These sensors provide data in real time, which are either directly converted into sound (oscillators, granular synthesis, etc.) or indirectly serve as triggers for other controllable events. The data measured live is converted into sound and thus the concrete environment becomes audible.

    It is raining, I drink coffee, I am bereft. From the poem by Jacques Prévert. The sadness of the times.

    I have made films. This is my third audio montage.

    7 – Steve Ashby    – Maphis

    Maphis is an exploration of found sound located within the cabin I stayed at while attending Mountain Lake Biological Station (Virginia, USA). These sounds hint at the stories, memories, and lived in space over the course of its existence since the 1920s.
     
    Steve Ashby is a musician, composer, and sound artist based in the United States. Ashby work focuses on sound found in the natural and digital world to discover places of intersection which engage in the art of listening. Recent performances and residencies include EMS Stockholm Guest Composer Series, Radiophrenia Scotland, Cube Fest at Virginia Tech, New Music Gathering, Sound Arts Richmond, and the NYC Electroacoustic Music Festival.

    26 August 2023  11:00 pm - 11:30 pm

    description
    This piece is an improvised sound collage that incorporates found interviews about US military missions, which dissolve into a rhythmic, unsettling noise. It was made using a Lyra 8 synthesizer, an Elektron Machinedrum, a Moog Mother 32 and Subharmonicon, various Eurorack synthesis modules, and fed through reverb made from an IR response at the Neolithic site Maes Howe in the Orkney Islands. Shane Simmons is a musician and artist based in Rock Island, Illinois via Alabama, Colorado and Glasgow, Scotland. He produces soundscapes and music that simultaneously explore economic globalization and state power, and the impact they have on hyperlocal landscapes.  He uses found interviews, reverb and field recordings, including contact mics in his work.

  • Boris Allenou – Cohabit: an artistic exploration around two instruments oddly distant from each other
    25 August 2023  11:30 pm - 26 August 2023  12:00 am

    description

    This creation is based of two free improvisations.
    In the first part, the piano is being used in two different ways: pressing the keys to produce notes and taping with my hands and fingers all around the body of the piano, avoiding the keys.
    The second part of this creation is a delicate and processed control of feedback coming from a No-Input Mixer. A mixer playing itself. On witch the output is plugged to the input, etc…

    My goal here was to embrace weirdness, trying to make these two instrument cohabit while leaving them their own space. It is, in fact, an ode to the aesthetic of the medium radio: the meeting place of sounds par excellence, where cohabitation is happening.

    Boris Allenou is an artist and musician who explores the limitless forms of Sound Art and Sound Ecology, by investigating the social role of sonic Eco-systems surrounding us.

    Boris Allenou’s research use interactive sound installations, talks, workshops, music, radio creations and sound exploration events as mediums to reflect on, propose and conceptualize possible roles, places, meanings, interactions and aesthetics of sounds in our societies.

  • Post Doom Romance - Prairie Transmissions
    27 August 2023  12:00 am - 2:00 am

    description
    A 13 part audio cycle by post doom romance. Exploring the inner / outer vibrations of the landscape we inhabit.

    These recordings were captured, processed, layered, manipulated and composed in the prairies around our home over the course of one year. This cycle takes the listener through our audio landscape filtered through our ears. A document of time / space / feeling.

    An attempt to witness the land, its memories, vibrations and gradient shifts.

    We present the entire collection of 13 tracks (duration 126 minutes). A transmission from where we are, to where you are.

    What Mykel Boyd and seah (Chelsea Heikes) have in common when forming their collaborative artist group, post doom romance, is a keen eye and ear for textures. In both sound and image, we have been solo artists working both in the music industry and the fine arts world. Together, we produce sound, video, and still image compositions that are sensitively layered and textural. Our aesthetic is such that we do not heavy-handedly depict. Rather, we ruminate together in the feeling space of both literary and physical spaces, building our aural and visual language through subtle layering of manipulated field recordings.

  • Lia Kohl - Untitled Radio (futile, fertile)
    27 August 2023  4:30 am - 5:00 am

    description
    The basis of this work is a series of improvisations with live radio static, created while in residence at ACRE in northwestern Wisconsin. ACRE is situated outside of Steuben, WI, an area rural enough that pockets of it get little to no radio signal. Instead, the FM signal offers a rich and varied palette of drones, percussive stutters and pops, prompting the ear to invent myriad sonic architecture: harmonies, melodies, landscapes. Though these radio improvisations could stand on their own as musical objects, here they serve as scores or guides for further response. This work is a collection of four of these responses, utilising synthesiser, cello, voice, and processed field recordings. 
     
    Lia Kohl is a cellist, composer, and sound artist based in Chicago.Her wide-ranging practice includes solo composition and performance, installation, improvisation, and collaboration.She tours nationally and internationally, working in theater, jazz, rock, and experimental contexts.Her work centers curiosity and patience, an exploration of the mundane and profound possibilities of sound.

  • Diarmuid MacDiarmada - Channeling
    27 August 2023  5:00 am - 5:45 am

    description
    Channeling’ was originally created in 2014 for the Cowtown festival in The Joinery gallery, Dublin. The work is an homage to the mysterious ‘number stations’ that broadcast recorded loops of words, letters and snippets of melody on long wave radio channels. The purpose of these recordings is still not known; it is believed they are possibly coded messages but it is unclear who might be the author or the intended recipient. The work also nods to the BBC Radiophonic Workshop and to Robert Ashley’s ‘Automatic Writing’ and to odd moments in rock’n’roll. The work was revised in 2023.

    Diarmuid MacDiarmada is a multimedia artist based in Sligo, Ireland. He has been active since the early 90’s in a host of guises and bands as well as in theatre and film. He is currently active in the group Rún and working on a video project dealing with artificial intelligence as A Bad Visitor.

  • Martin Eccles - Island Suite: movement 1; Beàrnaraigh Beag
    27 August 2023  5:45 am - 8:00 am

    description
    Walk on a small uninhabited Hebridean island. Walk on the earth and in the air; walk on turf, rock and sand; walk by the water; walk with the occasional company of birds.
    I walk alone and content – island as utopia – though I cannot leave unaided – island as prison. I walk past homes, places of work and places of worship, all now long abandoned – island as inscribed history.
    On a small uninhabited Hebridean island I trace a shore with sound and poetry.

    My practice reflects my experience of being in and walking through natural environments. I use sound recording and text to present time, place, distance and movement in the landscape and to provide an opportunity for a listener to consider what it means to move through the landscape at a human pace and scale. Written or spoken and transcribed notes made whilst walking provide the material for poems, often in the form of haiku, and other text works. I have exhibited nationally and internationally and have created radio works for Framework Radio, Resonance EXTRA and Radiophrenia.

    2 – Viviane Triby – Aero-decolonial soundscape

    Each soundscape asks us the question of the texture of the sensitive and its poetic generation of imagination. But what if, before naming the perceived, we wanted to discard it to give this texture a chance to adorn itself of unheard? What do we place as sounds in the sky to show that we dominate its immensity? In a polyphony crossing the rustling of the planets (but is it really them?), the memories of children’s cartoon spaceships, the songs of animal species that expatrientate us from domesticated representations of the animal kingdom and a resonance of a vibraphone recorded with a pedal multi-effects, come the possibility of a listening of the moored of the «prejudices of the world» (Maurice Merleau-Ponty).

    Trained at the Strasbourg Conservatory of Music (HEAR) in percussion, musical analysis and direction, Viviane Triby also holds a Master in music. After having worked as a teacher, then with theatrical stages and French Opera, she returned to teaching and continued research in the socio-anthropology of art at the University of Grenoble (PhD candidate).

    In 1985 three random ideas erupted my head, the polywave (self-contradictory movement) The Totimorphous (a house built out of logic) and the transexpansion numeral unit ( a number in between 1 & 4 but not 2 & 3) – All 3 would become major themes in my art for the rest of my life.

  • Samuel Robinson - My Synthetic Thoughts
    27 August 2023  9:45 am - 10:00 am

    description
    ‘My Synthetic Thoughts’ explores the complex intersection of mental health, medication, memory, and the subconscious. The protagonist grapples with the aftermath of recent vivid and disorientating experiences for which they are unable to attribute meaning or motive to. We learn of their increasingly futile search for clarity and relief, as they attempt to recount the unnerving happenings they are being subjected to. However, continually overwhelmed by a subconscious littered with fragments of unresolved time, they struggle to focus, and to find the greater understanding and peace they seek.

    Samuel Robinson is a London-based sonic artist and creative facilitator with a BA in Sound Arts and Design from UAL. Sam spent a decade in San Francisco, collaborating with NPR Producers ‘The Kitchen Sisters’ on a diverse array of socially-conscious audio storytelling projects. In recent years, Sam has worked with, amongst others, Tate, the ICA, and Resonance FM on various creative audio projects. As ‘Kalou’, Sam has released numerous song collections, including ‘The Sculpture Garden’, favourably reviewed in The Wire. Sam’s work explores creative representations of neurodivergency and mental health, using art as a platform for empowerment and societal change.

    1 – Kyle Vanderburg – You Can’t Outrun Your Daydreams

    It happens to all of us: You’re in the middle of something, maybe even something important. You lose focus, and you find yourself on a new train of thought, along for the ride. Your default mode network takes over, and now you’re in a daydream. Maybe you’ll end up on a beach, or an alpine village. Maybe you’ll find yourself on the metro in an unfamiliar town. Or maybe you’ll be attacked by a cacophony of unfamiliar noises, with brief returns to the here and the now. But there’s no escape: When your mind wanders, it brings you along.

    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 walks the line between eliciting nostalgia and devising innovative sonic worlds.  His electronic works often play with familiar sounds in new contexts; his acoustic works feature memorable melodies and a very fluid sense of time.

    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 – James Hazel – pre(care)ious (s)core no. 2 (transposing aspiration)

    James Hazel’s work pre(care)ious (s)core no. 2 (transposing aspiration) explores the artist’s relationship with their working-class family. Through the recent shared act of deconstructing an old piano, an incidental type of sonic practice emerged from socioeconomic necessity drawing attention to underheard classed and cultural conditions of precarity and housing insecurity.

    James Hazel (jameshazel.net) is a composer/artist/researcher based on the unceded Gadigal land of the Eora Nation. As someone who lived in an underclass (social-housing) community for fourteen years, James employs extended score practices across sound, music, utterance, and (re)performance to interrogate what it means to live, love, and listen under precarity – stemming from both lived/researched experiences of poverty. As an advocate in this area, James has commissioned several artists from low-SES backgrounds through ADSR Zine. In recent years, James has ‘worked’ for the dole; various call centres; and, more recently, as a casual academic in musicology at USYD. In 2021, James was selected as one of the ABC Top 5 Researchers (Arts). He has produced audio work for Liquid Architecture; Carriageworks; Sydney Dance Company; Arts Incubator (Seoul) and ABC Radio National (among others).

    3 – Pablo Sanz – Ebb and Flow

    The composition follows an imaginary day, from dawn to sunset. It meanders through aural spaces based on encounters with human and other-than-human lifeforms and their movements, shaped by the presence of the river.

    Sound piece composed with recordings made during Sonic Futures Residencies in Port Cetate (Romania), a program by SEMI SILENT.

    Artist, composer and researcher. The work of pablo sanz includes site-determined and public art projects, immersive spatial audio installations and concerts, and compositions for headphone listening spread through exhibitions, broadcasts and releases.
    With a focus on the limits and thresholds of perception and attention, his practice investigates listening, sound space, more-than-human vitality, aural energies, and otherness. Listening becomes a political act intended to resist dominant tendencies in contemporary societies, cultivating alternative forms of being and thinking. His work has been experienced internationally in diverse contexts. He has participated in numerous artistic residencies, received commissions and support from multiple organizations, and regularly facilitates talks, seminars and workshops.

    In a woodland clearing, we wait for the emergence of crepuscular and nocturnal birds. The source materials for this piece are the ‘slates’ at the beginning of a recording which identify the date and location. It’s been my practice to ask whoever is with me to do this.
    Dedicated to the late Chris Panton, an audio engineer, who mentored me when I started making recordings and told me always to record a ‘slate’ at the start of a session. Chris worked at dB Studios in Stroud and as audio editor for the National Poetry Archive.

    When we think of radio, we usually think of public broadcast and commercial stations – but the radio spectrum houses many different kinds of communications: military, aviation and marine, data modes and telegraphy, and contacts between amateur radio enthusiasts. This audio toolkit is a beginners guide to the physics of radio, to equip listeners with the technical knowledge to use online software-defined radio platforms (otherwise known as WebSDR), and tune into voice, data and telegraphy transmissions from all over the world. This piece collages many months of radio listenings from broadcasts across the bands. This project was supported by Soundcamp. Hannah Kemp-Welch is a sound artist with a socially-engaged practice – she makes art collaboratively and in community settings, experiments with DIY radios, and produces zines to make these technologies accessible. She is a member of feminist radio art group Shortwave Collective and arts cooperative Soundcamp, and has produced works for Radio Art Zone (2022), Movement Radio (2022), and Resonance FM (2020-22).

    Ryne Siesky – Grind (8:14)


    Approximately five-hundred billion plastic cups are used each year, of which roughly six billion end up in landfills every year. “grind” attempts to symbolize the faulty business and political ideologies that ultimately contribute to a lack of environmental sustainability through the destructive morphology of a single sound source: a plastic Keurig coffee pod hitting the floor.

    Ryne Siesky (b. 1996) is a Filipino-American composer, educator, and EID advocate. Under their new mononym, Todroki’s music has been described as “beautifully haunting” (Robert Avalon Competition), “patiently evocative” (George Lewis), and “unsettling, [yet] interesting” (Joshua Weatherspoon, Cycling ’74). Siesky serves as Assistant Professor of Music Technology at Johnson University where they teach courses in computer music programming, sound design, composition, and digital arts. Siesky is also the Director of Equity, Inclusion, and Diversity for the Millennium Composers Initiative.

  • Production 6 - Sara Lehad - Immemorial Echo
    27 August 2023  12:00 pm - 12:30 pm

    description
    What I call my sound matrimony is the sum of the inner and the outer elements that I hear and listen to when improvising with my machine and recording phonographies. It’s a magma of noises, concrete sounds, voices, languages, poetry, riddles, screams and, sometimes creepy stories. The composition came to me as the place where I could share the ghosts in me and the vivifiant present around me, going through a montage of phonographies and a deconstruction of the dualism in between which is a morphological sound and a representational one.

    Most of the speech and human voices arise from wonderful women, some of whom are my grandmother Wardia and her friend Haljia, but also a group of women called “Medahates” whose singing voices can be heard invoking the rain with traditional prayers because of this horrible spring canicule. All these voices were recorded by myself in April 2023 in Mayache, a little Mediterranean village in the countryside of Tigzirt in the wilaya of Tizi-Ouzou in the north of this very special and plural country – both beautiful and tragic – that I was born in: Algeria. The composition was made in my studio at Pantin, France.

    See here for translation and contextualization of the piece:

    Sara Lehad is a Paris based and Algiers born sound artist and researcher. She’s currently working on her PhD at l’Université Paris 8 and she studied electroacoustic music composition at le Conservatoire de Pantin. Her current research aims to decolonize her practice of music through a matrimonial interest in Amazigh-Kabyle women culture and through thematics such as listening, voice, border of speech, immemorial and intergenerational trauma.

  • Gabi Schaffner - LoFiLoop #3::Handmade Generative Music (Glaswegian Mix)
    27 August 2023  12:30 pm - 1:00 pm

    description
    Loop #3 evolved from recent experiments in micro-looping and its influence on time perception. In 2021, sifting through tons of field recordings for the 22-hour {A Wave Novel} for radioart.zone, I dreamt of giant ‘musical waves’ generated for this mission by some really smart and lucid machine/program/spaceship. It did not happen; instead, I assembled everything by hand. At the  Seanaps Radio Lab in 2022, I took up that thoroughly composted idea of using micro snippets of ‘audio trash’, long-lived-with sonic crumbs, and further semi-redundant sound material of short duration as a pattern-weaving material. And lo behold: It worked out. At least I think so.

    1 – Matt Warren – Sermon (Surfing The Waves With Guglielmo)

    The “Guglielmo” in the subtitle of this work refers to radio pioneer Guglielmo Marconi. Composer Gavin Bryars states “Marconi became convinced that sounds once generated never die, they simply become fainter and fainter until we can no longer perceive them. Marconi’s hope was to develop sufficiently sensitive equipment, extraordinarily powerful and selective filters I suppose, to pick and hear these past, faint sounds. Ultimately he hoped to be able to hear Christ delivering the Sermon on the Mount.”  This work is an imagining of the result of his improbable endeavour.

    Matt Warren is a nipaluna/Hobart, Australia-based electronic media artist, musician, curator, educator and writer. His art practice encompasses immersive electronic installation, single channel video and sound works. The works investigate memory, transcendence, liminal spaces and suspension of disbelief. Warren considers his art and installation practice as part of a greater context aligned to psychedelia, digital abstraction and hauntology. His music and sound practice has a basis in both composition and improvisation. He performs and records electro-acoustic and drone works, solo under his own name and collaborates with others under a number of monikers.

    2 – Dan Abrahams – Moving Sounds from the Engineering Lab

    I used to work in an Engineering facility, and between the metal workshop, electronics workshop, testing lab and office, a whole host of weird and wonderful sounds were to be heard: thumps, whizzes, beeps, clatters and bangs. One day, I decided to sample as many as I could, and make ‘musique concrete’ with them. The piece starts with an overview of the sounds, before arranging them to become rhythmic and groovy!

    Dan Abrahams is a composer, guitarist and double-bassist, playing in the Scottish jazz, folk and contemporary classical scene. He plays in the groups Dowally, Wayward and The Foo Birds, as well as releasing music in his own name. Next year he will be writing his first orchestral commission, for the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, as part of their Soundbox scheme.

    3 – Talia Augustidis – Sleep Talks

    Sleep Talks is a story about dreams and love and ethics. And cockroaches.

    When Talia’s boyfriend Eddie gets drunk, he sleep talks. For years, Talia records him and prods him and asks him questions, trying desperately to climb into his mind and explore. But it’s not that easy.

    Talia Augustidis is an award-winning audio producer and community organiser based in London. She is interested in pieces that blend fact and fiction, as shown in her short form podcast UnReality. Talia’s audio work has featured in the Tribeca festival in New York, the Lucia festival in Florence, and the IFC in Reykjavik. She also organises monthly listening events in London through In The Dark.

    4 – Adrienne Murray – A Measure of Air

    A Measure of Air is the background track to a sound installation Adrienne Murray made for her 3rd Year pre-degree show which used motion sensors to detect presence and trigger sound. The track contains sounds made through tactile contact with everyday objects (a porcelain cup, branch, and small glass container of matches) as well as ambient noise, to draw focus to the sensory experience of the everyday. Adrienne seeks to magnify the importance of feeling connected to our surroundings by encouraging a more sensitive awareness of the daily interactions which echo through our environment.

    Adrienne Murray is a 3rd Year Contemporary Art Practice BA student at Gray’s School of Art.  In the 2nd year of her degree, she was the recipient of the Caram Trust Award (2022). She works with sound, drawing, poetry, and installation to articulate her interests in ecology and spatialised connections to our surroundings. She uses the immersive qualities of sound to encourage feelings of empathy for our environment while also communicating a sense of contemporary disconnect due to growing reliance on digital spaces.

    5 – Keeling Curve – Atoms on the Wall

    ‘Atoms-on-the-Wall’ was recorded live at St-Peters-on-the-Wall chapel in Bradwell-on-Sea and is the culmination of a long-term collaboration with Nastassja Simensky. It is a site specific work based in the Blackwater Estuary which is home to a Special Protection Area, Site of Special Scientific Interest, the Othona pacifist Christian community, the Chapel of St Peter-on-the-Wall (grade 1 listed building dated to 654), and the decommissioned Bradwell A nuclear power station. It is also the location of the planned Bradwell B station. ‘Atoms-on-the-Wall’ combines prerecorded elements with live performance, using field recordings from the local area, a modular synthesizer and violin.

    The Keeling Curve is an electronic music duo comprising composer Will Frampton and violinist Rhiannon Bedford. They write and record ambient and experimental music exploring humankind’s relationship to nature using synthesizers, tape loops, extended violin techniques and found sound. Since formation in early 2020 they have released three E.Ps., been awarded grants from Sound and Music and Arts&Heritage, undertaken a BrittenPears creative retreat in Aldborough, and were shortlisted finalists for the inaugural 2020 RMA Tippett Medal. They have collaborated on the site-specific piece ‘Atoms-on-the-Wall’ with artist Nastassja Simensky.

    6 – Bernd Schumann – Kanon for 4 Loudspeakers

    Nihil novum sub sole – A very old, but still powerful contrapunctical form, interpreted electronically on four loudspeakers. Instead of pitches I use larger filtered macroscopic sound objects, that are combined by threefold repetition with themselves. By complementary rhythmization a dense sound flow is created – similar to a sung canon.

    7 – Roberto Vodanović Čopor – abandoned submarine shelter

    This work is part of a study dealing with abandoned places. The field recording for this work was recorded on the island of Vis, Croatia.

    Roberto Vodanović Čopor is a multimedia artist and researcher from Zadar, Croatia. He explores sound, word, image and movement intuitivly. He often combines his experimental music with the sounds of nature, cities and the sounds he creates from everyday objects. He releases his albums independently but also for many independent publishers such as Green Field Recordings, Sono Space, Novaki Music, Camembert Électrique, Warm Milk Recordings, Mahorka, Kalamine

  • Phaune Radio Evasive Spaces #1: Undergrounds & invisible
    27 August 2023  2:00 pm - 2:30 pm

    description
    The Garden is this evasive space where we can escape all these kinds of things that invade us – a place where our clandestine hopes can be inspired by the powerful fragility of the living to grow. A flyway for some, a place of life for others, in any case, a space of possible crossings, where the relationship between humans and non-humans is understood as it is breathed: with strength or delicacy, in depth or with lightness, with the tip of the nose or with both hands. Episode #1:  Undergrounds & invisible What if we plunged our ears forward into the incredible universe of soils? How do plants and fungi manage to “get along”? How do the floors feel? With Marc-André Sélosse, microbiologist, mycologist and botanist, at the MNHN. PHAUNE RADIO is a little bug as curious and untameable as the strange sounds it airs 24h/7 on the world wild web and on on your mobile phones: soundscapes from the wider world, bald and hairy music, meetings with animals, archives from the future, eartoys…. Phaune Radio, it’s like night and day. More than 10 000 tracks for an handmade airplay : effervescent and tousled during the day, horizontal and experimental from 10:00pm (Paris Timezone). phauneradio.com Floriane Pochon Thinks and writes with sounds. Searches, guesses, produces forms. Sound forms, hybrid forms, living forms but also forms of perception, transmission. Since 2013, has been breathing through and for Phaune Radio, a mobile webradio dedicated to acoustic ecology, radio arts and unheard-of music. A little bug as curious and wild as the strange sounds it airs 24h/7… Since 2014, has also been crossbreeding sonic and literary narratives with the writer Alain Damasio for the sound arts studio “Tarabust”. Since 2016, has also been growing audio ecosystems in Virtual Reality between Montreal and France. Exploration of suspended moments, populated silences, worlds to come or already there, all her works follow the wild thread of the living that vibrates: hybrid compositions, fictions, soundwalks, events and sound installations in unusual places … mushin.fr

  • Kode9 - Astro-Darien
    27 August 2023  2:30 pm - 3:00 pm

    description
    Astro-Darien is a sonic fiction about the break-up of Britain narrated by synthetic Scottish voices and framed as an eponymous video game about both the role of the catastrophic Darien Scheme in the late 17th century in the founding of the UK, when Scotland failed to colonise part of present-day Panama, and the contemporary disintegration of the union. In an extrapolation of the race to become the Scotland’s first vertical satellite launch station, independence becomes an exodus to an orbital space habitat, with all the risks and dangers that entails. From a Caledonian heart of darkness to a supernova Scotia? Kode9 (aka Steve Goodman) is a musician, writer and artist. He is founder of the labels Hyperdub and Flatlines (which he set up to release sonic fiction and audio essays), producer of 5 albums, 2 with the late Spaceape (Memories of the Future, 2006 and Black Sun 2012) and 3 solo (Nothing, 2015, Escapology 2022, Astro-Darien 2023), numerous DJ mix compilations, the book Sonic Warfare (MIT Press, 2010). In addition, his sound installations have appeared in the Turbine Hall of the Tate Modern (2018) and for the More than Human exhibition (2019) on artificial intelligence at the Barbican in London.

    1) Ilaria Boffa – How Mortal the Doubt – Trying, failing and trying again, the eternal process that pulls our choices and decisions. Field recording taken in Vibo Marina (Italy). Violin improvisation and by Ida Di Vita (https://www.quartettoindaco.com/)              https://linktr.ee/ilariaboffaIB

    2) Michael Begg & Kathy Hinde – Elsewhere Garden – Elsewhere Garden is a custom radio mix of an 8 channel audio / kinetic sculpture installation commissioned by The Teapot Trust, premiered at Chelsea Flower Show prior to permanent installation at the Royal Hospital for Children, Glasgow. Through located sound, forensic audio processing, modular and granular synthesis, a journey from under the soil up into the tree canopy unlocks the hidden sound world of a familiar garden, and in doing so invites the imagination to become unlocked in a reflection of the art therapy process that the Teapot Trust works to provide to children and families impacted by chronic illness.

    3) HUO Jung – Bienvenue – this word means « welcome » in French. An embassy is an extension of a country’s territory in a foreign country. An office of a country whose sovereignty is not internationally recognized, is it just a territory oh ghost ? This sound is a combination of bubbles, phone waiting and a speech on National Day by the Ambassador of Taiwan in Taipei representative office in France ( unofficial embassy ).

    HUO Jung, born in Hsinchu, Taiwan, 1997. Currently lives and study in Paris, France. Her work spans sound, installation, film, painting and performance, which is centered on the uncertainties of life. By collecting and reorganizing fragments of images and sounds in daily life, she depicts the poetic experience. https://instagram.com/jung.huo?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y=

    4) Lydia Davies – Catadupe – Rhythmic, jangly sounds carry the voice as it revels in a flood of both impassioned and insincere musings. The script for Catadupe draws on the wishy-washy etymologies of the idiom “it’s raining cats and dogs”, which is used to describe particularly heavy rain.

    Lydia Davies is an artist and writer based in Glasgow. Working across moving image, voice, sound, and bookmaking, she devises narrative-driven works preoccupied with interpersonal dynamics, bodily experiences, and the sifting and shifting exploits of voice and narration.
    http://www.lydiadavies.co.uk

    5) Trihn Lo – Scherzo – Scherzo is a small piece with an almost childish allure playing with the own and the borrowed; a mix of short quotations and mprovisations tinged with a slight irony stepping up by degrees until a “giocosamente furioso” somewhat melancholic and frenetic. The idea of an in-between, a threshold of mutual encounter/resonance is resolved in abrupt or progressive hybridizing effects. The piece had its world premiere at the 29th Futura Festival in Crest (France) 2021, performed by Nathanaëlle Raboisson on the large Motus acousmonium on Friday 20 August 2021.

    Poet, composer, visual artist and free improviser, Trihn Lo is currently working on interdisciplinary projects mixing instrumental and electronic music. The relationship between sounds and images, capable of producing an asynchronous audiovisual rhythm far from the most immediate synaesthesia, in a minimalist, experimental or more narrative approach, is today one of the main axes of her artistic work. https://soundcloud.com/user-103689113       https://trihnlo.wordpress.com

    6) Domenico De Simone – Hypnos – Hypnos and Thanatos, Sleep and Death. Death mirrors Sleep, because it is the latter that interacts with life; it is life itself, while Death represents its mirror opposite: life is mirrored in Death. Now Hypnos is introduced … Thanatos can wait. Starting from the sounds recorded on the lakeside of the town where I was born, I imagined what the soundscape will be in the future.

    Professor of Electroacoustic Composition at the Music Conservatory of Foggia. Graduated in Composition, Electronic Music, Piano and Jazz. Graduated in Composition at the Accademia Nazionale of Santa Cecilia and in Electronic Music with honors at the Conservatory of Santa Cecilia.

His compositions have been performed in more than one hundred concerts in Italy and abroad (China, Latvia, Canada, Chile, Argentina, Romania, Malta, USA, Ireland, UK, Spain, Austria, Brazil, France, etc.) and broadcasted by RADIOTRE.

    7) Sillyconductor- Analytical Swimming – I am floating on one side, one ear submerged, the other relatively dry and pointing to the sky. In my left ear I listen to what’s underneath, underwater, unseen and untouched. My right ear acknowledges the world above. In the midst of it all, there’s me, relatively cold. I am steadily moving downstream, breathing and making involuntary noises. Beneath the surface of the Danube there are mysterious bugs, sizzling crevices, maybe lava, who knows, it’s out of my reach. Above me lies the known world of birds and people and all things visible. And bats, which are something special. I always imagined big ships would generate a lot of low frequencies underwater. I was so wrong. Because now I can finally see it with my right eye and I hear it with my left ear.   Sound piece composed with recordings made during Sonic Futures Residencies in Port Cetate (Romania), a program by SEMI SILENT.  http://semisilent.ro

    Sillyconductor is one of the monickers of Cătălin Matei, a composer and sound artist from Bucharest. 

    8) Skrriim – Magnus – Water occupies the largest percentage of the planet and is home to the largest living species known to man. Unfortunately, its great biodiversity has led to overexploitation by humanity. This piece expresses what aquatic species are experiencing as humanity is increasingly exploiting their natural habitat for selfish and destructive reasons. Also, highlight the importance of preserving our environment by focusing on water and the species that depend on it for their survival. This piece is a combination of acousmatic and electroacoustic music leading into a vast marine universe and telling the story of a gigantic marine animal hunted and killed.

    Skriim, born Otse Mbida Fabrice Alan, is a Cameroonian multidisciplinary artist – electronic music composer, sound artist, and producer Dj – whose work essentially revolves around the research, collection and transformation of organic unorthodox sounds, to create musical novelty in the areas of electronic music and sound art performance. His music is mainly characterized by african rhythms, percussive sounds, ambient drones and electronic synths sounds.

    1) Sisters Akousmatika – Border Radio Chapter 3 – Decolonising Wavelengths

    Border_Radio is a conceptual inquiry about ownership of the airwaves. Originally commissioned as a video and ‘radio play’ script for Donner forme a l’ether Espace Multimedia Gatner (France). The Border_Radio play is written in three acts: Phonic atolls ~  Spectrum Auction ~ Decolonising Wavelengths. Each act represents an unfolding conceptual space, exploring questions about sovereignty, ownership, transmission law and international treaties, history and potentialities.

    Sisters Akousmatica (lutruwita/Tasmania, AUS)

    Sisters Akousmatica is the collaborative, expanded radio project of Julia Drouhin and Phillipa (Pip) Stafford – exploring the radical possibilities of transmission since 2016. Sisters Akousmatica weave projects in, around, with and for radio. Their work is concerned with collective, feminist radio practices and auditory-spatial exploration.

    2) Nicola Fumo Frattegiani – Contracted chest

    The radio was the invention that contracted the chest to the world. Noise is its foundation.

    “Contracted chest” is constructed entirely from manipulated noise and concrete sounds. The composition is a short narration of some moments of a day seen by an external observer: the listener, the voyeur who sees everything and hears everything. But vision and listening can never be clear, the veil of noise dominates impassive in its movement and presence.

    Nicola Fumo Frattegiani is an electroacoustic and audio-visual composer living in Perugia, Italy. His works have been presented at various national and international festivals. Author and performer, his research deals with electroacoustic music, sound for images, video, art exhibitions and compositions for theatrical performances. He is a Subject Expert in “Electroacoustic” and “Computer Music” at the Conservatory of Music of Perugia. He held the chair of Electroacoustic Music Composition at the Conservatory of Music of Messina. He is currently professor of Sound design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Macerata.

    “Who remembers all that? History throws its empty bottles out the window.“

    Sans Soleil, Chris Marker, 1983
    A song is playing, in the background. Hey —

    Schock!

    Still, alive.

    Waste(d) land revisited.

    This is an acousmatic cadavre, reassembling thoughts and samples that are rotting on a hard drive in a box, in the downloads folder of my laptop causing slow pace or being captured in the fields very soon. As if it was a prehistoric cave, creatures pass in and out. The traces of another time lie buried in the undefined terrain, but I will arrange and add yet another layer to this palimpsest of sounds and form a loop of sonic references and anecdotes, like a Stone/r/d henge in a sonic sphere. Roll out a carpet of sub frequencies! You may hear the echoes of the sirens, they speak with a German accent in their voice in dramatic tone… still, I feel the same.

    With voices of Meta D-1, Gertrude Stein, Anna Oppermann, Fiona and the author and a quote by Lawrence English.

    Antonia Alessia Virginia Beeskow, born in Düsseldorf, studied archaeology, Angewandte Theaterwissenschaft and Klang & Realität. As artist, sound designer and performer, Beeskow works in the independent scene, radio plays, podcasts, installations, experimental films and in the theater in different collaborations and writes about female* composers and sound artists for the grapefruits.online fanzine.

  • nonnon - Dalin’s Dream
    27 August 2023  6:40 pm - 7:00 pm

    description

    As a child, I spent many afternoons and evenings watching television with my grandpa. Pre VCR, he liked to record the audio of a show via cassette recorder placed near the speaker. What I remember most about these is the laughter we made in the background – my grandpa had a thorough variety of laughter styles. These were destroyed, but my obsession to resurrect the past remains. Culled from two cassettes found at Goodwill in 2022, Dalin’s Dream presents two perspectives: someone who needs to be found, someone who wishes he were visible.

    Dave Madden’s (aka nonnon) earliestmemories are Magical Mystery Tour and the guy who claimed to be theLizard King. Dave uses percussion, found objects, turntables and synthesis tocreate sonic environments of foggy memories of warehouses, rituals,subterranean boogeymen, submarines and other heterotopia, melatonin dreams etal. Madden’s current direction moves through Tudor’s rain forests with abackpack stocked with Hugh Davies’ contact mics, lost Stockhausen tape loops, andCrank Sturgeon’s guerilla attitude. Dave isalso forever focused on Nowhere Mountain, a decade-long film series withphotographer Mark Regester. He is also a journalist for The Squid’s Ear.

    A sonic remapping of a lockdown that was relatively synchronized worldly, including our own different locations; Kamza- Tirana-Rotterdam- Belgrade- Berlin -L’Aquila. Questioning and examining power through sound, it articulates the invisible, from the body to the scale of the environment. Each work focuses on what by looking has been collapsed into a state that disables a present possibility, what is and remains unseen but which is entangled with what is visible and which stands inaudible.

    Spoken language and sounds include: albanian, serbian, romani, the tired voice of law, crickets, earthmovers, automated voice machines, wind, hydropower turbine and river.

    Sound pieces:
    *Who Bowed the Head? – Diana Malaj w/ ATA
    *Crossways: Wind, Crickets, Drops – Giulia Francavilla
    *Doorkeepers, Timekeepers – Klodiana Millona w/Yuan Chun Liu

  • Mira Matthew - Hyena Women
    27 August 2023  8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

    description
    Four generations of female voices dance in a sound-filled journey between South Africa and Belgium. They speak of desire, they speak of the wild and they speak of the creative force. Through oceans and shifting sands of time-space recorded by many hands, the transmission ripples, waves and weaves, revealing a hint of the universal bathed intimacy, brimming with imagination and vibrating with a sense of place and depth. Born 1991 Mira Matthew grew up in South Africa. At 17 she left for India, following her yoga teacher. She studied yoga, and permaculture there. At 20 she moved to Brussels and studied editing. She edited Juanita Onzanga’s film, The Jungle Knows You Better Than You Do in 2016. She completed a master’s degree in audio-visual art at Luca School of Art with her first short film, Resident Alien. In parallel she continued her somatic experimentation through Alexander Technique and Authentic Movement. In 2022 she completed her first radio piece, Hyena Women. Mira is also a photographer and a mother.

    1 – Ruptured World – Third Kind Classification Types

    Third Kind Classification Types is a short radio collage featuring sampled radio noise together with excerpts from short wave and ham radio broadcasts. The work is intended as a study of the strange atmospherics of radio noise and the effect of the weird as an indigenous aspect of radiophonic sound production.

    Ruptured World is the music project of Ali Rennie, a sound artist and composer from Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Rennie has an MSc in Sound Shaping and Audiovisual Practice from the University of Glasgow and is currently studying for a PhD in sonic arts at the University of Aberdeen.       alistairrennie.com             rupturedworld.com

    2 – Daniel Hignell-Tully- 72 Achoo

    An algorithmic work that draws upon videos uploaded to Youtube with fewer than 72 views, 72 Achoo celebrates the voices of those who, for one reason or another, are typically drowned out by the omnipotent, sonorous clamour of the global village. Snippets of these unknown contributors texts are used in conjunction with algorithmically seeded chords and plucks drawn from a modular synthesizer, creating a sonic horizon upon which further live instrumental exploration can occur.

    Daniel Alexander Hignell-Tully is a sound, video and performance artist from the UK.         http://www.distantanimals.com        https://difficultartandmusic.bandcamp.com/

    3 – Pete Stollery – Quiet City

    Quiet City, commissioned by sonADA, is an immersive work, using recordings crowdsourced, via social media, from a number of locations in Aberdeen where the sound had changed since before the restrictions put in place in 2020 to slow the spread of COVID-19. Sounds moves from (un)recognisable soundscapes through to non-real world transformed soundscapes, reflecting a sonically changed city and how we relate to it.

    With grateful thanks to the following, for the use of their sounds: Heitor Alves, Ian Booth, Christine Cameron, Bea Dawkins, Sheila Gordon, Fraser Lovie, Kathleen McBride, Robert McColl Millar, Lorna Philip, Bruce Scharlau, Anne Shipley, Jenny Shirreffs.

    Pete Stollery is a composer and sound artist based in Aberdeen, Scotland where he works for sound, an incubator for new music activity and, until 2022, the University of Aberdeen.  His creative work tackles issues around the relationship between sound and place and how we approach these through listening. As well as music for the concert hall, he has created a number of sound art installations, sound maps and sound walks, many of which involve co-creation with communities.         http://www.petestollery.com

    4 – Alistair Zaldua & Lauren Redhead – April April April

    SouthWestApril is a collection of four experimental sound poems that combine speech, improvisation and live electronics that can be heard as separate pieces or a continuous set. The texts were created using extended Oulipo techniques, while the e-violin interacts with live electronics that sample and process the improvised sound in real time. These pieces were recorded at the SWR Experimentalstudio in Freiburg, Germany, in April 2023; live electronics were performed in the studio by Maurice Oeser.

    5 – Raquel Stolf – Howls

    Howls from/to the radio. A fragment of a collection of dog howls recorded since 2008. Howls are vocalizations that act as an attempt to gather the group, as howls reach long distances, creating an instant communication net (high-pitched and/or obscure messages). Howls are also: a way to warn about intruders; a kind of call/sign to someone who has left home (or to a partner); a vocal indication of frustration and pain. Howls are a sign of boredom and/or loneliness.

    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: 11º Salão Nacional Victor Meirelles (MASC, 2022); The days when owls had fallen from the sky (Verter, The Wrong Biennale, 2022); PAPEL DE PAREDE (Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris, 2022); biblioteca: floresta (SESC-SP, Brazil, 2022); Soma Rumor (2o Encontro Latino-americano de Arte Sonora, 2021); Pão e pedra, palavra-miragem (O Sítio, 2019). She has been researching intersections among concepts/experiences of silence, writing/collecting processes, and listening situations in the production of propositions that can be unfolded in installations, actions, interventions, videos, photos, texts, and drawings.         http://raquelstolf.com

    6 – Johannes Christopher Gerard    – The Voices In My Head    

    The sound piece focuses on an unseen but real situation. The theme and sounds are based and relate to the voices and sounds I’ve been hearing in my head almost constantly for many years. Caused by medical and mental issues. It’s a simple attempt of a field trip into my head and to approach sound and noise from another level and place.  Under certain circumstances, the voices in my head are capable of creating a temporary space in which things are they behave, act and interact differently, disobeying the normal rules of everyday life

    Born 1959 in Cologne, German. Currently lives in The Hague, Netherlands. Interdisciplinary and multimedia artist. In January 2022 participation in the Acoustic Interior Project under the sound artist Anne Wellmer in The Hague, Netherlands. Begins to work and experiment seriously with sound through his participation. Since 2022 work has been presented at New Emergences of the Institute of Sonology, Concert Hall Royal Conservatory Royal, The Hague, Netherlands. KAOS 2022, Kranj, Slovenia.“Listing to a Brave New World”, Cinema Museum, Istanbul, Turkey, Centro Negra, AADK SP Blanca, Murcia, Spain.

    7 – Johnny Dixon – The slow squeezing to death of an orange

    8 – Dixie Treichel – Another Nightlife

    Sounds dancing through space and where they might take us. “Another Nightlife” is an experimental soundscape for radio created with live shortwave broadcasts, field recordings, original, and found sounds.

    “Another Nightlife” was originally created for Shortwave Transmissions (2021), Cities and Memory, Oxford, UK in collaboration with The Shortwave Radio Archive that launched 2-13-22 to mark UNESCO World Radio Day. It was included in Shortwave Shindig (2022) held during the SWL Fest’s Zoom Conference, broadcast live worldwide on shortwave via WRMI 7570 khz (Radio Miami International), Wave Farm’s WGXC 90.7-FM, Montez Press Radio and on Healing. Listening to a Brave New World 2022, Mediterranean Soundscapes Project.

    Dixie Treichel is a composer, sound artist, sound designer and radio broadcaster. She is a sonic explorer who likes creating with any and all sounds, generating rich sonic textures that invite the listener on a journey into the unknown. Her works have been heard internationally on radio, in art galleries, sound art festivals, new music concerts, theaters and streaming festivals.

    description
    The Evidence-Based Fiction Network presents – Shakespeare Colorized.  Disinhibited speech coming out 10 syllables at a time. . . when you hit your head hard enough, like in Shakespeare, the words just don’t seem to stop. Thanks to new technology, many “colorized” words enhance the modern listener’s enjoyment of this production of Shakespeare’s The Porn of Caltech.

    Erik Belgum has written and produced radio works for ABC (Australia), BBC (England), CBC (Canada), New American Radio, Bayerischer Rundfunk, and Hessischer Rundfunk. In 2003, WDR-Cologne produced a documentary on his work.  For the last five years, Belgum has run the “Evidence-Based Fiction Network” at http://www.ebfn.org, a repository of horrendous comedy and soundtexts.  By day, he is a speech pathologist listening on an hourly basis to the extremes of speech and language: autism, aphasia, brain injury, methamphetamine-affected children, dehydration, schizophrenia, dementia, and many others.

    In April 2000 I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Alas has no Known Cause nor Cure for this life impacting, disabling disease. Presently, there is what are called DMTs –  “Disease Modifying Therapies” which can alter the course of the  disease by slowing down the rate of progression of the disease. But still no cure. The  disease is still omnipresent in peoples lives, with out a cure the disease just drones on and on and on ad infinitum, with little or no relief.To capture the droning nature of MS, ‘ThatWhichCanNotBeCuredMustBeEndured’ is a one hour one minute and 35 seconds drone.

  • Jed Miner - Potophysikal Nelvauticus
    28 August 2023  2:00 am - 4:15 am

    description
    Recorded live on Eurorack modular synthesizer, Jan. 2023 in Brooklyn NY. Material is from several sessions that were edited together – recorded from the internal synthesizer case speakers. All sounds are generated by feedback generated withing the make noise/Soundhack Mimeophon delay module controlled by a make noise Rene and Rossum MOE and Control Forge. A four module based system for improvisational noise and self playing “Krell” patches. I interact with the instrument using gestures to create voltages on touch plates arranged in a grid to interact with digital quantizers and random function generators. The result is a feedbackscape of sound embodied within the acoustics of my home often playing for extended 24 hour plus freeform sessions tuning the feedback endlessly like a drifting radio dial. Jed Miner is an Artist working in mixed media and sound. Born in Manhattan, NY in 1975, he has developed a sound art practice based in the exploration of recorded media and synthesized sound. A Duchampian sense of the sound object creates new languages based on modern consumer cultures. I’ve been observing media to the point where my consciousness feels of a lower resolution perceptually. Glitches in everyday life become artifacts. modernism.bandcamp.com

  • Paul Mallatratt - Walks
    28 August 2023  7:00 am - 8:00 am

    description
    As well as sitting still and listening to the world exist around me, I sometimes like to walk about, especially when a route might take me through differing soundscapes, like woodlands and towns, parks and busy traffic. I like the contrast between the tranquillity of a quiet, calming space and the urgency and chaos of the modern world. This field recording soundwalk mixes all these together and features walks through towns, cities, parks, supermarkets, woodlands and beaches in England, Scotland and Germany. Take a seat, relax, and open your ears.

    I have been making music in one form or another since the mid-1970s, but only started experimenting and creating electronic music at the turn of the millennium. As well as a producer, mixing engineer and field recordist I also play bass for UK blues maestro Danny Bryant and record and tour throughout the year. I release ambient electronic and field recording compositions under my own name.

    1) Bleepeater – Paroxysmal

    This work finds an almost orchestrated brassy nature yet also appearing non structured
    With abrupt metallic jangles which I think maybe fitting for the show considering its expressionate flavour.

    Bleepeater lurks in the sonic underbelly of experimental audio using his super powers in sound design to craft all sorts of harmonic wizardry from bizarre to the most beautiful of creations the depths of which are limited only by the listeners imagination.

    2) Selestra – Dispatches from Radiotopia- Hamburg Rehearsal:02 13560- Noisy RFID Devices Made Noisier

    Recorded during the first rehearsal of RADIOTOPIA, these tracks guide shortwave frequencies into a portable modular system for signal transmutation. Understanding or decoding is not the point, but rather these signals act like any other voltage in the system: one to be manipulated, one that can travel through the wires to modulate another parameter. Paired with algorithmic generation of melodies, the tracks manifest a merging of generated and captured voltages from around the world. More information can be found here: https://selestra.bandcamp.com/album/dispatches-from-radiotopia-hamburg-rehearsal

    Selestra is a moniker of Adriana Knouf, PhD (NL/US), who works as an artist, writer, and xenologist, focusing on topics such as wet media, space art, and queer and trans futurities. 
    https://tranxxenolab.net/

    3) Ryeshta – Unit 0

    The work was created when working with a compact cassette tape recorder and a delay effect. This made it possible to turn a standard recording of an English language course into a strange soundscape with a lot of noise, layering and delays. The analog sound of this work, in my opinion, is well suited for radio broadcasting.

    Ryeshta is a project from Ekaterinburg, Russia led by Victor Sapronov, the sound enthusiast, who uses in his work various noises, sounds of analog synthesizers, sounds of Russian folk instruments and field recordings. I managed to collaborate with experimental music magazine, underground labels, as well as with poets and musicians from Russia, Spain and Iran. And I have published musical works on internet platforms, vinyl and compact cassettes. 

    4) Rosa Farber – Constant Pumping  

    Written and edited by Rosa Farber/Voice by Anna Swenson/Archival audio includes voice of Toos Jeuken and voice of Andy Web/Drums by unknown/Technical assistance by Tom Chadwick

    ‘Constant pumping’ is the function whereby a tractor monitors and adjusts the machine it is pulling through the ground behind it. Before constant pumping was invented a draft animal (such as ox or horse) would drag a cultivator (such as plough or harrow) through the ground behind it with gravity as its only mechanism, therefore any large rocks or debris it met in the soil would affect the course of the machine and there would always be the risk of the machine getting stuck or broken. Constant pumping uses hydraulic feedback loops to control the draft, adjusting it as it goes, maintaining depth and pressure. Constant pumping, or draft control, engages with the resistance in the soil and instantly “corrects” the machine, so that if a heavy obstacle stands in its way (such as a boulder) it will lift the machine up, riding over the obstacle momentarily before resuming position. Equally if there is a hard piece of clay and the machine wants to change course because of the clay, constant pumping will keep it consistent in the soil, slicing through the clay.

    Rosa Farber is an artist and market gardener based in Mid Sussex, UK.

    5) Hakeem Adam – Here us out  

    What drives you as an artist? Is it the beautiful? The mysterious? Hakeem Adam’s work Here Us Out is driven by this question and looks for the meaning of expression. Although Adam feels betrayed by expression, as it can desert you in times of need, he is also constantly energized by the search for it.

    Here us out is a meditative exercise on reconciliatory thought. The audience is invited to listen in on a conversation attempting to form an opinion on the power and purpose contained in creative expression. It emerges from sound and video recordings of artists from Africa and its diaspora discussing aspects of their creative expression in their own voices. The installation constructs and holds space for the intentions, beliefs, vulnerabilities, habits, memories and emotions that drive and propel expression to be heard. The sounds establish a framework for exploring a central theme on creative drive. Here Us Out was developed for STRP 2023 as the awardee of the Creative Technology (ACT) 2023.

    Hakeem Adam is a Ghanaian digital artist and freelance arts and culture writer exploring the power of narrative. Hakeem has exhibited internationally at the CHALE WOTE Street Art Festival in Accra, Ghana (2018); Many Studios in Glasgow, Scotland (2018); Okay Space in New York, USA (2018); SPACE10 in Copenhagen, Denmark (2019); Abandon Normal Device (2021); York Mediale (2021) and IDFA (2021, 2022). He has participated in the British Council’s ColabNowNow Residency, Maputo (2018) and the Cryptic International Artist Residency, Scotland (2019). He has completed a master’s in Digital Media from the University of the Arts, Bremen. He is also a recipient of the 2023 ACT Award (Award for Creative Technology), STRP Festival 2023.

    6 – Canaan Balsam –  This machine will grant any wish you desire except for your wish to see the machine destroyed

    The sadness of judging oneself against the endless blank verse of history. Credits: Narration by Daniel Mutch

    Canaan Balsam is an electronic composer and musician based in Edinburgh. They use field recordings, found sounds, hardware and a range of software to create immersive soundscapes. Their work explores the dead space between ambient and new age music; the liminal zone between the harshness of industrial and the beatific serenity of devotional music.

    7) Hannes Egger – Kitchen Performance or the Order of Things

    During lockdown 2020 between pots and pans, kitchen stove and work-desk, Hannes Egger has got up an audio performance that everyone can interpret from their homes. The six-minute slot first published on his website and then broadcasted on the radio for the Transart Festival is easy to perform following the spoken instructions. The invitation is to enjoy, in full awareness, a physical experience within the walls of the home, questioning how far our general habits, perceived life-view and criteria of order may be altered, and how much they will have to be tailored to new circumstances.

    Hannes Egger studied philosophy at Vienna University. His approach to art is basically conceptual, seeking audience involvement and interaction.

  • Radical Murmur - Episode 1 - The Sonic City
    28 August 2023  9:00 am - 10:15 am

    description
    RADICAL MURMUR – A Sonic Exploration in Three Parts
     
    We live in a media era that is dominated by image and language, yet sound often seems less important. In Radical Murmur TRASHLINIE dives into the possibilities of the sonic dimension. In this triptych we meet thinkers, sound artists and composers who, in very different ways, take sound as their starting point. With them we try to learn to listen with new ears. How can “sonic sensibility”, to echo a term used by one of the interviewees, raise our awareness of the complexity and polyphony of society? What can sound tell us about our position in the world and our relationship with our fellow human beings or with nature? How does change, or loss, sound? Radical Murmur consists of three episodes: The Sonic City, Resonances of Loss and Reflections amidst the Noise. With the collaboration of Justin Bennett, Evelien van den Broek, Peter Cusack, Mint Park, Davide Tidoni and Salomé Voegelin.


    Radical Murmur – Episode 1 – The Sonic City

    In this episode, we listen to the bustling hum of human activity, the reverberation of sounds between buildings and the familiar ring of the tram bell. What city sounds do we become attached to and why? How does sound help us navigate traffic, society and history? We climb a former Nazi bunker with sonic philosopher Salomé Voegelin, hear the squeaks and creaks of Berlin’s S-Bahn with artist and sound connoisseur Peter Cusack, and reflect on sonic utopias and ways to ‘read’ city sound with sound artist Justin Bennett in a shopping arcade in The Hague.



    BIO 
     
    TRASHLINIE is the heading under which we, a sound artist/radio maker (Sjoerd Leijten) and an architectural historian/publicist (Roel Griffioen), have been making podcasts and audio projects since 2019. With TRASHLINIE we are interested in evoking a sense of space through sound. Interviews are typically conducted on location; this means that street noise and spontaneous encounters are included in the montage. The soundscape of any street can reveal a lot about the acoustic dimensions and atmosphere of a place, and even abstract and gradually unfolding processes like gentrification, segregation or ecological degradation can be audible, or at least have an effect on the sound profile of a place.

    Kudaplovi ovaj brod? Where is this ship sailing? is a sound work built from hydrophone recordings of underwater sound pollution. The recordings were taken over the span of 2 years in the historical town of Korčula and its immediate surroundings.

    This 40–minute long radio adaptation / sound installation is an unsettling journey revealing the dystopian realm of Adriatic noise contamination, due to increased water traffic and the insatiable urge for the expansion of industry and tourism. The work consciously exposes a disturbing marine reality in which an inexhaustible amount of mechanical sources are literally grinding the underwater soundscape.

  • Melissa McCarthy - All That Flow: Episode 1
    28 August 2023  11:00 am - 11:15 am

    description
    Traffic is moving freely along the M8, clotting up after the A720. There’s a capsized vehicle in a ditch following an incident with two contradictory bicycles. We’re hearing reports of a collision, some photographers, and prosthetics near the overpass. The cars hiss by my window; the highway’s jammed. We have the fast track on movement, circulation, and vectors. Tune in for the latest travel updates and motor news, for all that flow.

    Melissa McCarthy’s next book, Photo, Phyto, Proto, Nitro, is published by Sagging Meniscus in November 2023. Sharks, Death, Surfers: An Illustrated Companion, from Sternberg Press, came out in 2019. She lives in Edinburgh and writes about art, literature, and sharks.

    “The first period of getting mixed up, getting lost is beautiful.. “
    ― Alan Watts

    September 2022, London Tube, UK

    Since the path matters more than the destination, we could let our ears and sensations drift for a journey through the bowels of the city. Follow underground and luminous lines, let ourself be carried away without intention but with attention. Travelling or clandestine sounds, real or dreamed rhythms, we let you take your place on board and we offer you the journey to somewhere else.

    For its tenth season of podcasts, Phaune Radio transports you to the joy of a mutating reality where space-time could well expand. Rarely one-way voice, sense of disorientation and just passing frequencies… Don’t miss the connections!

    [Huge thanks to Mark Watts and the Alan Watts Organization for their support!]

    1) torschlusspanik – the sight of me repulses me 

    Originated in 2013, Torschlusspanik is a middle-aged Tennessee gal’s outlet for mostly unpleasant and nonrealistic music that has been summarized as “maximalist electro-acoustic” in the past. A wide scramble of sounds are crudely forced into sound collage and (vague) song format intended for weaponizing emotional overstimulation and mulling over lost opportunity as time is near expired.

    2) Adriana Minu and Tim Murray-Browne – Driving around Bucharest in the Lupo on 17 November 2018

    Driving around Bucharest in the Lupo on 17 November 2018

    The Lupo was a special car. One day driving around Bucharest we discovered that if we set the radio to AM static, we could listen to all her electrical activities. The Lupo has now given up the ghost, but our car in Glasgow holds our final analog radio. This broadcast is in memory of the Lupo, that she may sing again in the cars of Glasgow.

    Adriana Minu and Tim Murray-Browne are Glasgow-based artists exploring embodiment, intense vocal performance, agency in human-machine relationships and AI mysticism. They make music together as Sun Infuzhiun.
     
    3) Johnny Dixon – PenintaMES – 1 

    The new ‘PenintaMES’ form takes 50 lines of Mark E Smith’s lyrics from his songs with The Fall group.

    Although clearly derived from the Cento form, invented to give new and abstract life to Homer’s verse, the PenintaMES is a new poetic form specifically and specially invented for Radiophrenia 2023 to play a little with Mark E Smith’s words.

    Lines were selected using the FallFriday hashtag on the now defunct Twitter app. Any single quoted line or, if more than one line was quoted then the first or middle line, was used. If no lines were quoted in the tweet a quick glance at the whole song lyrics was enough to take a single line.

    A debt of gratitude is owed to The Annotated Fall website for compiling the complete lyrics, and to everyone who has ever tweeted using the FallFriday hashtag. And of course to MES for the endless diversions his work provides.

  • Production 8 - Astrid Björklund - An Oneirophonic Account of a Venture to the Second Moon
    28 August 2023  12:00 pm - 12:30 pm

    description
    In 2019, a new natural satellite was discovered orbiting our moon. Things have not been the same since.

    One day you are here. And then suddenly you’re not here. You’re not anywhere. In “An Oneirophonic Account of a Venture to the Second Moon” a disembodied voice recollects its memories of a failed expedition to the satellite orbiting Earth’s moon: the second moon. This piece – part science fiction radio drama, part fragmented soundscape – weaves a sonic tapestry that attempts to explain what it’s like to be consumed by the unknown – something that words alone can’t describe – creating a narrative set outside time and reality.

    Written, recorded and edited by Astrid Björklund.

    Several voices in this work have been synthesised using ElevenLabs.

    All things in this piece are fictional, except for the things that are not.

    Astrid Björklund is a Swedish visual artist and amateur sound weaver. Her work draws on the theories of the “Chthonic” (of relating to, or in, the underground), fiction, mythmaking, and thoughts surrounding the uncertainty, awe and ambiguity of life, with a pinch of existential dread. Noise, music and ambience for this work have been created using various synthesised, found, created and recorded sounds.

    1 – Riccardo Tesorini – Agoraphobie de l’infini    

    Suddenly, in a quiet moment: dust, lacerations and sudden changes on other dimensions, transmitted by the voice that becomes a figure. Until it fades out, exploding into a thousand frayed fragments. A dramaturgy of the end, abrupt and strident, which between its edges finds subtle and curved landscapes in the total loss of the spirit.

    Voice I: Riccardo Toccacielo
    Voice II: Matilde Fratteggiani Bianchi

    Riccardo Tesorini lives and works in Bologna, Italy. He is graduated at the ‘F. Morlacchi’ Conservatory in Perugia in “Electronic Music and New Technologies”. He is currently completing his studies at Conservatory “G.B Martini in Bologna” in Sound Design.

Teasing the aesthetics of audio books and radio plays, aural accessibility and contemporary intellectual and social capital are poked at in equal measure during a whirlwind of intimate and awkward encounters falling from the catwalk to the lecture theatre to the kitchen table to the exhibition opening ad infinitum over the course of one sweaty evening.

    Caitlin Merrett King is a writer and programmer based in Glasgow. She has published writing with Sticky Fingers, MAP Magazine, Nothing Personal and Pilot Press. She graduated from MLitt Art Writing at Glasgow School of Art in 2022 and was awarded The Yellow Paper Prize for New Writing; The Yellow Paper will publish her pamphlet of new writing, ‘The Ludacrously Capacious Bag’ in late 2023.

    compactors, crumpling of trash bags and the like. The second movement is dedicated to Pseudochazara cingovskii, a species of butterfly, found only in the North Macedonian village of Pletva. The third movement, Wind-Rain Circles, is based on sounds of natural elements of rain and wind.

    Andreja Andric (born 1973) is a Serbian composer and programmer, living in Aarhus in Denmark. He explores the intersections of
    mathematical processes, intuition and chance and uses computer programming as key means of artistic expression. With a primary
    interest in composition and performance for his networked laptop/smartphone ensemble, he is also active as composer of vocal and
    instrumental music. His work has been performed on festivals such as ICMC (International Computer Music Conference) 2022, Limerick,

    Jeudi (Thursday in French) – made for the film by French artist Michel Zumpf  on the basis of The Man Who Was Thursday: A Nightmare is a 1908 novel by G. K. Chesterton. The book has been described as a metaphysical thriller.The film is a two hour hauntological  tour de force between Paris and London, full of photographs, cinematic impressions, portraits of actors both amateur and professional who read or recite fragments of Chesterton’s thriller or other related pieces of literature. A true masterpiece you might not be lucky enough to see as the artist nurses his mystery and obscurity.

    7 – Fernando Curiel – La puerta de Ariel

    La puerta de Ariel is an octophonic electroacoustic work. It seeks to introduce itself to certain auditory scenes that are eventually presented to us. Here there is a sound territory where broad timbre layers are developed within a fine line between everyday and distant sounds, that is to say, acoustic spaces are developed with simple and distant materials as well. The original sound materials that were used were obtained from the main door of Ariel Gato’s recording studio.

    Fernando Curiel, Argentine composer, pianist, improviser, pedagogue. He graduated from the “Julián Aguirre Superior Conservatory of Music”, Province of Buenos Aires. Senior Professor with a specialty in Composition and Music Composer with a specialty in Symphonic and Chamber Music, Master in Music Education. His creative search focuses on the articulation between “Instrumental and Electroacoustic” music, with a biological conception of the artistic work from those ancient and sensitive materials, immersing himself in musical theater, improvisation and new technologies. Executive Member of the “MUSLAB” headquarters Argentina.

  • Pablo Sanz - Fuerteventura
    28 August 2023  2:00 pm - 2:20 pm

    description
    FUERTEVENTURA (20:42)

    Fuerteventura is the second largest of the Canary Islands. It is known for its powerful winds and plentiful beaches. This composition focuses on wind and water, listening to their movements and influence throughout the island’s coastal and arid expansive landscapes and human-made infrastructures. The piece strolls through boreholes, windmills, the nuances of the ocean’s ebb and flow along with rocks, pebbles and sand, and the activities of animal species at dusk in a dry reservoir.
     
    CANARIAS SOUNDWALK explores the sonic ecologies of the Canary Islands archipelago, presenting seven compositions for headphone listening created with environmental sound materials from each of the seven main islands: El Hierro, La Gomera, La Palma, Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura, and Lanzarote.

    The project investigates the vitality of more-than-human entities and realities, aiming to promote less anthropocentric ways of being and thinking. Through different listening strategies and audio technologies, the work concentrates on what usually remains hidden or unnoticed, on the limits and thresholds of perception and attention. The project focuses on the voices and audible presence of animal and plant species, air, soil, water, weather, and landscape formations. Furthermore, it acknowledges the affective power of sounds themselves. This project embraces listening as a creative act, a form of attention, and a tool to investigate the world. It attempts to cultivate intimate sensory encounters favouring affectivity over signification and representation.

    The project was originally commissioned by the Cultural Office of the Embassy of Spain in the US as a permanent public invisible artwork available at multiple locations in Washington, DC. Additional support from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland (ACNI), the Swedish Arts Grants Committee (Konstnärsnämnden) and the Visby International Centre for Composers (VICC). Fieldwork and production assistance: Palma E. Christian Martínez. Special thanks to Garajonay National Park, Teide National Park, and Timanfaya National Park.

  • Miradasvacas - CRACK FM
    28 August 2023  2:20 pm - 3:00 pm

    description
    CRACK FM consists on a recording made during a car trip from Collado Villalba to Madrid in which the driver alternates between frequencies on the fm/am radio while incorporating internal and external sounds. Once arrived to Madrid the recording was directly reproduced and manipulated live using only a reel to reel. The resulting piece is considered to have acquired a certain cinematographic feel in which reality and fiction strangely coexist. Miradasvacas is a duo formed between Pablo Mirón and Juan Vacas, in which they explore the boundaries between pre-recorded – field recordings or found materials – and original live sound through a series of manipulations with different media such as radios, reel to reels’, turntables or cassette players along with more traditional instrumentation. They both belong to the experimental music collective from Madrid, Real No Real.

    description
    A multilayered sound installation which incorporates a spoken-word performance and an audio tape recorder to interact with the live performance. I will edit all my poems on my computer. In an order I know while performing. I will transfer this audio edit from my computer to the audio tape recorder. I will create a unique piece of sound by pressing the buttons that forward and reverse the audio tape, to control the story being told, adding, pausing, changing the poems in real time, interacting with it with my voice and a microphone.

    Garance Buxtorf is a 23-year-old French artist, she is studying for a Master’s degree in Speculative Narration at the Graphic Research School in Brussels, Belgium, but lives in Bologna, Italy for Erasmus program. She is part of the artist collective and Radio« P-Node ». She grew up between France, the United Kingdom and Morocco. She is interested in various ways of writing the world through sound: sound performances, spoken-word, poetry, radio, songs and sound experimentation. Her practice, between documentary and fiction, is oriented around the themes of friendship, love, nightlife, and intimacy.

Recorded at my house in Munich, in the afternoon of July 14, 2020 Edited and composed in the morning of July 15, 2020 The piece was assembled out of three improvisations with the Revox tape recorder, inputing field-recordings, found sounds, contact microphones, feedback and a digital FM synthesizer. It starts so abruptly because I only remembered to push the record button halfway through the first take. This music hasn’t been mastered. Please adjust your volume accordingly – louder then usual, I guess –   Originally recorded for Amplify 2020 festival.

    Antye Greie aka AGF poemproducer is a sound artist, composer, poet, curator and active member of the female-pressure network. She has collaborated with Vladislav Delay, Gudrun Gut, Eliane Radigue, Rupert Huber, Craig Armstrong and many more. Her work deals with the relation between sound, speech, voice and communication, and in her new audio work for Kunstradio, she puts an emphasis on processes of hearing and listening.

    “Acoustic perception. Hypersound, oscillations, ears, events, Listening in the static, making audible what is underneath the surface. Listening, process of hearing, outer ear, inner ear, middle ear, cochlea, eardrum, threshold of acoustic pain, deafness, numbness, numbness of the soul. Frequency range and stories. What does it mean to listen? Listening to the other, acoustic identification, characters, misunderstandings, acoustic memory. Listening comprehension, signal of noise and speech, diagnostics, impedance matching. I want to learn to listen. To listen deeply and even much deeper.” (Antye Greie)

  • Stevie Jones - Siloed Thinking
    28 August 2023  5:00 pm - 5:30 pm

    description
    Siloed Thinking is a radiophonic soundscape composition based around field recordings from the Cupar silo, a vast cylindrical warehouse dominating the Cupar skyline, in a state of dereliction since the 70s. Incorporating oral histories recorded by photographer Carolyn Scott, the piece engages with the social and historical context of the building, while interrogating the site through improvisatory, performative, self-reflexive methods.  Making use of radio transmission throughout the site, Siloed Thinking complicates and collapses space, explores the grain and decay of radio and offers a fragmented, mercurial navigation through imaginary and corporeal spaces combined.  It seeks a balance between the ambiguity and narrative possibilities of subjective listening and a conscious, cultural sensitivity.    A recursive companion film, Live at the Cupar Silo, deconstructing a series of site-specific performances utilising tape, microcontrollers and interactive music systems, works with similar site abstracted materials. Live at the Cupar Silo, a kind of audiovisual remix of the performances, will be available to view on the Radiophrenia website at the time of transmission. Siloed Thinking is followed by two related pieces from Jones. Firstly, Transducers is a field recording composition based around sustainable energy production in Glasgow, similarly blurring boundaries between environment, instrument and performer. This precedes A Silk Purse, a modular synthesiser-based work which takes an oral history of Scotland’s performing magic community as it’s point of departure.

    “5α-Reductase 2 Deficiency” is a loosely sequential montage of edited found and created sounds created while the author fixated on disciplinarian violence, traditionalist child grooming, self-immolation fantasies, queer venereal horror, childhood trauma, and extreme examples of communication breakdown.
     
    Originated in 2013, Torschlusspanik is a middle-aged Tennessee gal’s outlet for mostly unpleasant and nonrealistic music that has been summarized as “maximalist electro-acoustic” in the past.

     “The end is where we start from”
    ― TS Eliot

    June 2022, London, UK

    On the other side, settling in a back Channel, we end this season by leaning on the mineral and glazed heights of the city. There, under a scraping sky, in a hanging garden, it’s simmer time. Between 12 towers, dizzying stopover in Shoreditch, London.

    Earigami, every month, like a game, a ritual of multiplying dimensions and perspectives, tuning in every other end of the world, on the edges, at the fringes, in between, to get to know otherwise. So inside, out, in the present. Among others.

    Night Vision is a contemplative vocal sound work. At its core is a large body of text written during the night over a two-year period, lying down in a semiconscious state – a very different starting place for me as a composer and artist. I selected around 50 excerpts from the main text. A Night Vision album was released in 2023. The excerpts unfold in chronological order within an atmospheric soundscape composed using ensemble improvisations and my own voice/studio recordings. 

    Performers: Alison Peebles, Louise Montgomery, Nalini Chetty, Ian Spink, Mairi Morrison. Recorded, mixed, mastered: Jim McEwan.

  • Maria Papadomanolaki - Scaffolding of the heart
    28 August 2023  7:45 pm - 8:00 pm

    description
    Initially presented as a live performance in 2021, Scaffolding of the heart, explores a relationship of deconstruction; a preamble to loss. Taking as its starting point a text found in a diy-zine by a Greek queer performance artist, the work uses a series of field recordings collected from Papadomanolaki’s own home in Chania, Crete to explore the fading relationship between self and (M)other. As heard through the repetitive calls to Mother-Μητέρα, the latter’s presence acts as a vanishing point in the canvas of the work.

    Maria Papadomanolaki is a sound artist based in Chania, Crete, Greece. Papadomanolaki has studied linguistics and literature at the Aristoteleion University of Thessaloniki before moving on to sound art and sound studies, having completed a PhD on the topic ‘Sonic Perceptual Ecologies’ at CRISAP, LCC, UAL. Her work and research focus on the role of sound in the way we engage with our environments, with memory, placemaking and perception. Special importance is placed on the synergy of electroacoustic and electronic music, transmission art and creative ecological practices.

  • Carlo Patrão - Working with what you have
    28 August 2023  9:00 pm - 9:40 pm

    description
    Working With What You Have is a radio piece composed of field recordings collected during one year of work (2022-2023) in Manhattan, NY. This piece follows the making of a tonkatsu ramen soup in a compact kitchen in Midtown. This type of ramen is known for its long periods of cooking that can extend for over 12 hours. The sounds of the different stages of preparing the ramen broth are interwoven with the fast-paced rhythms of commuting to the city, the sounds of the subway, traffic, sirens, walkways, and workers. A sonic feature of Midtown, Manhattan, brought forward in this piece is the sound of artificial waterfalls abundant in small pocket gardens between corporate buildings, offices, and international consulates. The anesthetic quality of the sounds of the artificial waterfall in an otherwise stressful environment is a revealing piece of the fabric of this neighborhood. Its calmness and sense of rest constitute a feature of the capitalist structure of the city and the sense of empire-building, business as usual, serenity, and high productivity at work. *The ramen broth is made of pork and chicken bones and served with chashu, toasted minced garlic, scallions, egg, and bean sprouts.

    1) Magda Lampropoulou – Speech Chain

    In this piece we listen to various words in Greek which gradually transform into other words, by removing a letter or syllable each time they are repeated. My aim in composing the words this way is to convey the confusion caused by mishearing as I seek to express an alternative empathic experience of hearing-impaired people.

    {e.g, we hear the phrase “-Μ’ ακούς;” [Makus?] (= “Can you hear me?”) and then the word [Fisika] (=Of course), which I replay continuously [fisika-fska-skafi-kapos-kopos-topos-postopes], until it concludes with the phrase [Pos to pes] (= What did you say?)}.  

    Magda Lampropoulou (b. 1977 Athens) is a sculptress and sound artist based in Athens, Greece. Her work engages with diverse, expressive media including audio, performance, sculpture, installations, and video. She works with the medium of sound, creating artworks associated with hearing problems, seeking a different empathic concurrency of the audience. She holds a degree in Sculpture (MArt) from the Athens School of Fine Arts (2004). Her participation in exhibitions, festivals, artistic radio podcasts and residencies (“Tectonics Athens21”, Onassis Cultural Centre/ “Works for Radio #4”, The Lake Radio/ Space21 Radio Art Festival, Kurdistan), has resulted in her identifying her work methodology.

    2) Strabisme auditif –  Cossos Escoltat

    The piece mixes a noisy and instrumental musical composition composed with an electric organ and effects pedals, sound recordings made during the feminist demonstration of March 8, 2022 in Brussels and a capture of body sounds (heartbeats, skin rubbing, breaths) with a piezo microphone.

    Born in Toulouse in 1991, I’m a sound artist and social sciences’s researcher. In my artistic practice, I combine sound recording and music, with the aim of bringing philosophical and sociological questions to life. I’m particularly interested in the functioning of communities and the creation of the social link. Started in radio by La Fabrique de la Nuit, Radio Brume (Lyon), I multiply research angles by offering original sound objects that combine music and documentary. My work also takes place in the field of live performance and cultural mediation.

    Strabisme auditif is one of my artistic’s name. Here my personal website : https://strabismeauditif.portfoliobox.net/

    3) Amy Beeston – Wave by wave

    Wave by wave is a whispered ‘note to self’ that revisits the text of a postcard I sent myself in 2020 while following Julia Cameron’s book The Artists Way. It sequences short, unvoiced phrases – ones that still felt unspeakable two full years later, when wave after wave of shocking events had reduced everything around to a raw kind of rubble. It is an attempt to hold firm – a reminder to find the good things in life, and to chose these as foundations for building the future.

    Amy Beeston is a sound artist whose work encourages others to listen more deeply to their everyday environments. Her practice is interdisciplinary and collaborative, allowing her to repurpose scientific studies in human hearing and machine listening to create ecologically-minded sound installations and participative listening experiences. She creates small wall-hung works with fixed-media soundtracks and large room-sized sound environments that alter their soundscape in response to their listeners’ sonic emissions. Since moving to Orkney in 2018 her work is increasingly carbon-conscious, and is heavily influenced by principles of acoustic ecology and environmental sustainability.

    4) Tam Lines  – Bench Loop 2

    Bench Loop 1 is part of an ongoing search for paralysing loops, loops which, similar to drones, can hold the listener in perpetual stasis. The loop in this piece is an electronically processed field recording of a metal bench, and while it loops perpetually, the intricacies of the patch create subtle variations in timing and texture.

    From the same recording as Bench Loop 1, Bench Loop 2 indulges in an extended drone, slowly shifting and shimmering between dark metallic textures.

    Tam Lines is a multidisciplinary artist, writer, and musician. Their work touches on the boundaries between the human and nonhuman, incorporating new materialism and queer theory, cybernetics, horror media and introspective poetic approaches. They compose industrial soundscapes, crooked loops and cramped beats under the moniker Tam Lin.

    5) Arturo Pacheco Manzano – ACEITE DE CAGUAMA (Loggerhead oil)

    The audio production presented in this case is inspired on the voice from a tape you can listen on street market from a long time. It is a exotic soundscape production with voice over and music, noise, ambient recording in street markets around Mexico City.

    Arturo Pacheco Manzano (Xochimilco, Mexico City, Mexico)
    Radialist, musician, psychologist from Mexico City. He has worked as a transcriber, musical arranger and instrumental performer in various cultural events in Mexico and other countries. Research psychologist and consultant, therapist, university teacher and school prefect. He has also collaborated since the time of the pandemic with cultural groups and in free and community radio production in different territories of the country and on the internet.

    6) Raincat – The Invisible Hand

    Sound sculptures made with litter objects including nails, wire and bits of metal were played with a violin bow, creating layers of slowly building, shifting tones. No digital manipulation was used, instead the inherent resonance of the materials was allowed to speak.
    The Invisible Hand is a metaphor used by Adam Smith to extole some of capitalism’s unintentional virtues. Raincat uses it to allude to litter creation and the problems of waste inherent in capitalism. In context, it also relates to the non-visual dimension of a radio broadcast.

    Raincat is Dougie Taylor, a visionary sound artist who crafts immersive sonic experiences using found litter objects. His creative process is inspired by animism, the occult, and anti-capitalist ideas, leading him to engage with discarded objects in the hope of discovering something secret and enchanting. Raincat’s creations invite listeners to consider alternative ways of understanding the world that prioritize interconnectedness and interdependence over individual gain and profit. By working with litter, Raincat subverts the prevailing paradigm of consumption and waste and encourages us to rethink our relationship with the world around us.
