  • The Chants Beneath Episode 1

    29th August 2016 @ 12:01 am - 1:00 am

    The Chants Beneath Project features a total of 120 newly commissioned sonic works from the world's most exciting sound artists. Each piece makes use of, or responds to, a unique cassette-tape loop created by artist Jeremy Young.

    http://chantsbeneath.net

    Episode one: Fragment vs Fluid
    New work by Julia Kent, Hakobune, Astral Social Club, Miguel Carvalhais, Nils Quak, Alberto Boccardi, Chuck Bettis, thisquietarmy, Jean DL & Sandrine Verstraete, Alan Courtis, Brian Chase & Thomas Barriere.

    Jeremy Young is an artist and entrepreneurial strategist working predominantly within the flexible borders of sound media. His creative work includes compositions for recording and live performance, reel-to-reel tape collage, sound-poetry and audio-visual scoring. His main interests as a performer lie in the analog treatment of surface-based audio (piezo mic'd objects and surfaces, manipulating tape and tone via texture and voltage), as he is not concerned with what one hears but how it is heard and through what lens. He has performed and released material throughout Europe, Asia, the US, UK and Canada. In 2014, he was awarded a Media Artists' Assistance Grant by Wave Farm (NYSCA) to create 125 unique artist edition double-sided loop pieces towards developing sustainable audience engagement with the sonic arts, housing all the loops online in a freely streamable living archive and commissioning over 120 sound artists to create new work using each singular piece. Visit the project here to view the list of participating artists.

    Young's main sonic project is a collaborative trio with Ian Temple and Jesse Perlstein called Sontag Shogun that makes use of analog sound treatments and nostalgic solo piano compositions in harmony to depict abstract places in our memory. However, Young recently released his debut duo album with cellist/multi-instrumentalist Aaron Martin entitled, A Pulse Passes from Hand to Hand on Chihei Hatakeyama's label White Paddy Mountain. He also performs in a trio with pianist Shinya Sugimoto and 16mm projectionist Joel Schlemowitz as well in a post-Celtic folk duo with Daniel Merrill called Foxout!. Young has shared the stage with notable artists such as Hauschka, Julia Kent, Aki Onda, Matana Roberts, Jason Lescalleet, Aaron Martin, Dead Rat Orchestra, Barn Owl, Sam Shalabi, Alexander Turnquist, Tom Carter, Noveller, Ben Vida & Koen Holtkamp among many others.

    *Young has been invited to Geneva by the Musée d'Éthnographie to co-curate and conduct a residency series in 2016 exploring the collection of ethnomusicological recordings in the Museum's Phonothèque archive.


  • Commence Exuding the Opaque Vapour part 1

    29th August 2016 @ 1:00 am - 8:00 am

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

    1. Christine Renaudat - Selfie1-Nothing but listen

    "Selfie1-Nothing but listen", is a short potpourri of sounds, collected without any purpose in different places: Paris subway, Mexico DF cathedral, a street in La Habana, my house in Colombia, a garden in France, the voice of my daughter, her breathing... Small things I love and that are part of my life, almost nothing. This small work is inspired by Walt Whitman poem Song of Myself, and it's mixed with parts of Erik Satie's composition Caresse.

    Bio: French radio correspondant in Latin america, self-taught "sound artist". Since 2011, I'm exploring the sounds of violence and conflicts to create sound pieces and installations.
    I use the deep listening of voices and noises, with or without images, as a medium to explore the mechanisms of the personal traumatic memory. I'm also playing with more dreamy and intimate sounds - voices, whispering, breathing, sounds of my daily life.

    2. Alexis Weaver - Crackle

    Crackle explores the possibilities of texture, with the sharp, pointillist snap of fire acting as a thread between each expressive realm. Smooth arcs drawn from the human voice are tempered with modulations which become increasingly distorted over time. Ranging from the harsh to the hypnotic, this piece celebrates musical extremes.
    Bio: Alexis is a third-year student studying electroacoustic music within the Composition and Music Technology Unit at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. With a background in classical performance in flute and voice, she enjoys fusing her traditional musical education with the ever-expanding world of modern electroaccoustic technologies. Her goal is to re-write the listener’s understanding of music through the juxtaposition of the beautiful and frightening, creating a stark dichotomy of sound.

    3. Jenn Mattinson – Desmond

    Experimental radio piece using a small collection of sounds and interviews recorded after the floods that hit Keswick, Cumbria so badly following Storm Desmond in December 2015. Keswick is now back open for business but the visual destruction is still ever present several months after the event and people are still feeling the effects of the flood.
    Bio: Jenn Mattinson is a freelance creative facilitator and community sound artist working mostly in Cumbria and Lancashire. She is currently facilitating an oral history fishing project and delivering an interdisciplinary creative arts programme for people living with dementia and their carers.

    4. Timo Kahlen - System

    I was taught not to play with money. ((Multiple references to financial spendings and crisis, to the current issues with Brexit etc. are possible.)))

    Bio:Sound sculptor and media artist Timo Kahlen (*1966) has been creating eye- and ear catching, temporary media sculptures and sound installations for more than 25 years. His work has received nominations for various renowned scholarships and residencies, for the German national “Sound Art Prize“ (2006), the Stiftung Kunstfonds stipend (2010), the „Supreme Concept Award“ at Kinetika 2014 (New Zealand), for the “Kahnweiler Prize for Sculpture“ (2001) and for the “Prize for Young European Photographers“ (1989), as well as critical recognition at more than 150 exhibitions of contemporary media art since the mid-1980s : including invitations to „Sound Art: Sound as a Medium of Art“ (ZKM | Karlsruhe 2012-2013), “Tonspur_expanded: The Loudspeaker“ (Vienna 2010), “Manifesta 7: Scenarios“ (Italy 2008), “Wireless Experience“ (ISEA, Helsinki 2004), “Zeitskulptur: Volumen als Ereignis“ (Linz 1997) and his solo exhibition “Timo Kahlen: Works with Wind“, inaugurating the Kunst-Werke Berlin in 1991. Timo Kahlen received his Master of Fine Arts degree from the Hochschule der Künste Berlin in 1993. He works and lives in Berlin, Germany.

    5. Faxen - In this momentary awareness I tried to tell myself,...

    The piece was produced for a site specific sound installation for the Hummelhofbad spa that contrasts the wellness atmosphere by presenting reports and sounds from the cold and dark deep sea. The sound installation gives an insight into the acoustic world of the oceans whose research was only made possible through sonic methods, such as echolocation or sonar. „In this momentary awareness I tried to tell myself,...“ mixes quotations of deep sea explorer Jacques Piccard, with unexplained recordings from the deep sea and field recordings from the spa. In 1960 Piccard dived with his submarine „Trieste“ to the bottom of the Mariana Trench with a depth of 11,034 m. Never attempted again he is is still the only person who visited this extreme environment. His unique reports from the dive give an insight into a world without any light that requires to focus on the auditory perception. Piccards reports serve as a framework for a sound work that mixes with maritime underwater soundscapes and field recordings from the spa itself.

    Bio: Since 2004, Clemens Mairhofer, Lucas Norer and Sebastian Six work together in the artist collective FAXEN.
Acoustic experiments in connection with items of everyday life, sculptural assemblages and the physical element of sound are the main aspects of the group’s musical and visual compositions. The works of the artist group FAXEN deal with moments where noise becomes music and the difference between hearing and active listening is explored. Alongside their artistic work FAXEN are running the artist-run gallery bb15 in Linz/Austria

    6. Edinburgh Leisure – Call This Number

    Edinburgh Leisure are a experimental two-piece. They provide Scottish music to the middle classes. This composition is expected to appear on our album (self-titled) Edinburgh Leisure.

    7. Pytchblend - Waking Up On The Encampment

    Sketches from the biomechanical heart of England's bleak, industrial North West.
    Come with me now to the subconscious borderlands of sleep and wakefulness.
    Explore the sensory phantasmata of hypnagogic dreamlets. Feel static-like frisson sensations tingling down your spine. Join me on the journey into the heart of etherCore

    8. Doog Cameron – Lament for the Glasgow High Rise

    This is based on the short film I made about the loss of Glasgow's high rises and the change in the make up of the city as a result, making it less dense, less vertical and usually more suburban. It is a major regeneration effort to lose the stigma that came to be associated with high rises but the buildings themselves, as part of a cityscape I think are a big loss when blown up they are gone forever.

    Bio: I managed to successfully submit to last years Radiophrenia with a series of 'Central Belt Dictaphone Sounds' totalling 20mins. I live and work in Glasgow and make music and sound experiments in my spare time with 'the Just Joans', The Ladywell Lout and just generally mucking about with friends with the same interests (Dictaphones, Ableton, gigs, noise). Currently working on a concept album based on small town Scotland galadays in the '90s.


  • Patrick McGinley - raadio mälu

    29th August 2016 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

    A few months ago I found a small portable radio, dating probably from the 1980′s and made during Soviet times, in a secondhand shop in the small village of Mooste in southeast Estonia. i have a thing for old radios, so I bought it, and it got me to thinking about the place of radio, not in this present world of internet streaming, podcasting and so forth, but in our past, and in our memories. I know I have distinct memories of radio, radio stations, djs, events, situations, and even places that I relate to radio from my own past, growing up in Boston, during my student days in western Massachusetts, all the way through my years at the Resonance fm studios in London, and my attempts now to listen to Estonian radio to improve my language skills. I wondered if this particular radio, alien to me but possibly familiar to Estonians, might trigger memories for those around me, and I decided to find out.

    I composed this piece from four elements: memories, stories and observations from a handful of Estonians, related upon being presented with this particular radio for the first time; sonic material produced by the radio itself, both when tuned to and tuned between stations; field recordings from the surrounding landscape, vibrations in the immediate airwaves that have carried these radio signals; and archive material from Estonian radio’s past, both in and before the country’s soviet era.

    The Estonians interviewed were given the choice of speaking in their native language or in English; two chose Estonian, and two English. i have left the Estonian language untranslated in the audio itself – much of what is being communicated can be heard in the tones of their voices, and through shared vocabulary. that said, i am providing a written translation for the Estonian language sections below.

    ::: Alfred ::: 09:22-15:29 :::
    It is, yes, made in USSR. It’s from Russian times. But with this one you couldn’t listen to Voice of America. This gets mediumwave and longwave. For Voice of America we used shortwave, 25, 31, and 49 meter bands. But this is… yes, with this one it should be possible… wait, let me check. It’s stuck in the bag. “Selga”; you see? It’s just as I thought, Selga. Produced in Latvia. Latvia made things like this. But let’s see which wavelengths it has – should be mediumwave and longwave. I had one just like this; I used to listen to German music with it. They played very good German music, on mediumwave. And it works? Yes, it’s got mediumwave and longwave. I used to listen to broadcasts in English on shortwave. We also had one of these Riga radios at home. They made a lot of these in Riga. All kinds of different machines. And then we also had a Radiotehnika, I used that one a lot too. I couldn’t speak any English yet, but i just listened to how good it sounded. It has such a nice timbre. Mother also used to listen to English radio – or which language did you listen to? Did you listen to Estonian? Mother doesn’t remember anymore which language she listened to. But yes, there was really good music. So this is from the Radiotehnika factory – RRR: Rigas Radiotehnika Rubnika. RRR, the factory’s mark. “Rigas Radiotehnika Rubnika” in Latvian. Selga 405. 29 rubles. Radio receiver. Look how well it’s preserved. Still working. It’s old already, probably 30, 35 years at least. Quality mark; this is a quality mark. SSSR. Here you choose longwave or mediumwave. It works well. ah, German. German? ah, one of them is speaking German, the other English. It works very well. Italiano – no, maybe not. No, I don’t know. Still English probably. Italian? He’s probably talking about the pope, who’s giving up his position. Is he giving up his position? It’s very sensitive, receiving very well. Don’t know what language that is. And what langauge is that? Ha, Big Brother language. Mine was light colored and had a colored bag as well. And a strap, like this one. This is of course newer than mine was. But that one I think broke. I don’t remember what was wrong with it.

    ::: Mari ::: 51:18-55:09 :::
    It’s a radio, made in the Soviet Union. It has a black leather cover, a bag that has a strap that can be adjusted to different lengths, so that you can, for example, put it over your shoulder on the street and take it with you. Very comfortable. The bag has a nice soft texture on the inside. It has two snaps that you can close it with. The radio itself is rectangular, with two buttons: one for the volume, the other maybe for the frequency. The bag has one round hole, through which you can see the frequency indicator. And then there are many small round holes, to let the sound through. On the back there are some more holes. I don’t know what these can be for. Maybe for the radio to get ventilation. And then there is one hole through which headphones can be attached. And there is one more button with which, probably, different wavelengths – longwave, shortwave – can be selected; you can choose. Many words have been embossed on the bag, for example “made in USSR”. The radio is totally rectangular; the button is round and the speaker part is rectangular with small holes. The brand is Selga. The words on the indicator are green, and the pointer is red, and a bit transparent. On the indicator there are numbers: 1.5; 2; 3; 4; 5.6; 6.5; 8; 10 and 15. On the back is written Radio Prijemnik. Selga-405, type APP 4. Cost 29 rubles.


  • Remote Series Ep1 - Tumi Magnússon - Voyage There and Back

    29th August 2016 @ 10:00 am - 10:30 am

    Tumi Magnússon (Iceland): Voyage There and Back

    In the remote villages of Iceland small fishing boats are a way of life. Some of these boats have old engines with a very slow stroke, producing a very special sound. On quiet nights, the acoustics created between the fjord and surrounding high mountains make this sound very seductive. In Voyage There and Back, Tumi Magnússon focuses intently on this listening experience, using it to make a description of a voyage by a lone craft, simply by manipulating the timing of the sound of a boat engine. The travel takes place by association and imagination. The gradual speeding up and slowing down of a boat engine's stroke connects directly to the sense of time, movement, narrative: with sound as a vehicle for time travel, perception of space- time and Doppler effect. The sound is very slow in the beginning, then gradually accelerates in tempo to slightly faster than normal before slowing again on the return trip. The change is constant and very gradual, affecting the pitch of the sound. Because of the very slow modulation the nuances of the sound are in constant development. Different frequencies and rhythms appear and disappear, and the sound slowly renews itself throughout the piece. Working in a very minimalist and conceptual way, Magnússon made only small adjustments to in situ recordings made in Seyðisfjörður to enhance and clarify those nuances, with very short external sounds added in two places.

    Bio:

    Tumi Magnússon was a professor at the Iceland Academy of Art from 1999-2005, and the Royal Danish Academy of Art from 2005-2011. He currently lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark, and spends his summers in Seyðisfjörður, Iceland. Today he primarily works with multi-channel video and audio, where sound plays a very important role. His installations usually have a strong site-specific element, and he has maintained an adventurous and experimental approach to art.

    Skálar FM presents The remote series

    In 2014-2015, Skálar FM, a project of Skálar | Sound Art | Experimental Music was
    commissioned by the Creative Audio Unit of Radio National, Australia's national public broadcaster, to create a 5-part radio art series for their program Soundproof. The remote series consists of four programmes created by internationally acclaimed artists working with sound and curated by Anna Friz and Konrad Korabiewski. Each was asked to consider an aspect of the idea of 'remoteness', or the experience of distance.
    As Skálar originates in the small town of Seyðisfjörður on the north east coast of Iceland just below the Arctic circle, 'remoteness' most obviously describes the experience of existing outside of the geographical and cultural centers of power, or by a feeling of having journeyed far away from populous areas across rough seas and rugged, far-flung landscape to reach a so-called end of the earth. More fundamentally, the defining feature of remoteness is the experience of distance, however minute or vast, in time or in space.

    About Skálar:
    Skálar | Sound Art | Experimental Music is an artist-run organization established in 2012 investigating new methods for sound art and experimental music practices. Based in eastern Iceland, it takes the name ‘Skálar’ in honour of the Icelandic pioneer of electronic music Magnús Blöndal Jóhannsson. Skálar acts as both an artist collective and a mobile curatorial platform, and produces an itinerant ( Skálar Sound Art) festival, international exchanges, and limited edition releases of audio and audio-visual works. Curatorially, Skálar's focus is on creating site-speci fic sonic-based interactions with landscapes, both geographical or built. Skálar is particularly interested to generate and support artistic practices which highlight unstable systems, open spaces to new interpretations and use, and which engage in perceptual feedback and affect between site and subject. The organization's activities also include radio with Skálar FM, which promotes both micro-radio and transmission art works as well as interventions into the broadcast domain through commissions and curation developed in concert with various national public radio and independent radio stations.

  • Lin Li - Change Ringing Change

    29th August 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm

    Change ringing change

    Change ringing (or method ringing) is the art of bell ringing established in England in the 17th century and is still practised in many churches in Britain. This sound piece examines the essence and some of the rules of change ringing, and considers the question of whether this form of bell ringing is music and what its musical qualities are. Interviews with experienced bell ringers and musical experts are interwoven with news reports, field recordings, and sound clips created in accordance with the main principles of change ringing whilst extending the boundary of this art.

    With thanks to the Guild of Bellringers of St Mary’s Cathedral in Glasgow; Angela Deakin; Jonathan Frye; Eva Moreda; Steven Worbey; and Shantiketu

    1. Annie Higgen - a-shame-d

    a-shame-d is a sound piece which explores the human feeling of shame. It combines a poetic account of the personal experience of shame with a variety of scientific, philosophical, and religious takes on the subject, and aims to enhance people’s understanding of the mechanisms and effects of shame.

    Bio: Annie Higgen is a Glasgow-based poet and sound artist who works across different media and art forms. Her experimental practice aims for an interdisciplinary approach to contemporary art and frequently incorporates forms of political and social activism. In her work, she alternates between more traditional forms of page-based poetic writing, digital media, and sound works. Previously working as a singer- songwriter she gradually moved to poetry and more experimental sound art and finished her MA in Poetic Practice at Royal Holloway in 2014. Annie is particularly interested in exploring concepts of place within social and political frameworks and she has developed audio works, net-based pieces, book works, and performances in relation to a number of sites, primarily in London. Her emotionally charged spoken-word pieces often develop notions of physical and emotional violence and confinement.

    3. Diaz Sounds - Millitainment

    millitainment is a work inspired by a documentary of the same title. In the documentary, the lives of modern day soldiers who control drones are explored. The parallel between video games and drone fighting is made along with the numbness one feels when it comes to making a drone strike--one button can kills hundreds. My piece explores distance between sound objects the numbness the soldiers described when it came to pressing the kill button.

    Bio: J Diaz is a Sound Artist based in New England. His work encompasses sound for theatre, dance and the concert stage. Recently, J has collaborated with theatre and dance companies in Oregon, Colorado, Indiana, New York City, and Ghana, Africa.

    The woods are miles to sleep to sleep is a guqin response to a field recording of Nat Evans sleeping while hiking the Pacific Crest Trail near San Diego, California. The guqin is the Chinese 7-string zither traditionally played not for public performance, but for private meditation in nature. Here, breathing sounds and bird calls blend with string friction and unmeasured releases.

    Bio: Carolyn Chen has made music for supermarket, demolition district, and the dark. Recent projects include a story for ASL interpreter strung to chimes at a distance and a commission for Klangforum Wien. Her work has been presented in 20 countries and described by The New York Times as “the evening’s most consistently alluring … a quiet but lush meditation.” For a decade she has studied the guqin, the Chinese 7-string zither traditionally played for private meditation in nature. She studied in China on a Fulbright in 2012, and has performed at The Kitchen, Beijing sidewalks, and the Great Wall.

    Craig Dongoski is a Full Professor at Georgia State University in Atlanta, Georgia USA. Dongoski’s has been exploring and articulating the mark in its most basic form (both graphically and aurally) for much of his career. The intention is that through varied interpretations of the marks that a contribution is made to the art historical dialogue within the origin of human expression. Professor Dongoski has performed and produced work each year on the island of Kefalonia, Greece since 2011. He also has a considerable body of work, entitled The Primates NoteBook, employing his drawing-sound experiments and innovations in tandem with chimpanzees through the Language Research Center in Atlanta, Georgia.

In 2015 he directed an important improvisation collaboration with filmmaker Larry Clark resulting in a limited press LP entitled Drawing Through. He is represented by WhiteSpace gallery in Atlanta, Georgia.

    6. Mixtales Media - Alex

    Powerful memories are like tapes paused in our minds – a hum barely heard beneath the noise of our everyday – ready to be played at any moment. This radio drama explores the process of falling in love with someone, fading away and eventually discovering all that you have left of them is a ghost in your memory. Carter, our narrator is on a present-day first date and but is distracted by memories of a past love, which play like a tape in his head. Through rich sound design we hear the disconnect between Carter’s thoughts, memories, and present conversation as he painfully listens for answers in recordings that he made but can’t seem to make sense of.

    Bio: “Alex” is an radio drama production from MIXTALES based in Toronto, Canada. MIXTALES is Katie Hill, Matthew Kariatsumari, Michelle Macklem and Dane Stewart.

    7. Nad Spiro – Sparky 2 “SIRIUS RADIO FREQUENCIES”

    Last year I worked in the Cork ’s Harbour area as artist in residence at
    Sirius Arts Center, Cobh co. Cork (Ireland). My project was about the harbour as a setting for acoustic transit : I developed some sound fictions that included transmission codes, navigation narratives, signal stations, radar tones, Marconi’s experiments, sirens,
    Titanic messages... These music pieces were later performed live at the “Sounds from a Safe Harbour” festival (Cork, Sept. 2015). During my stay at Sirius I created some “radio frequencies” of my own with electronic instruments in order to include them in the final pieces. The tracks I submit to Radiophrenia are de original, isolated “Sirius Radio
    Frequencies” that I created there. What better medium than a radio broadcast to disseminate them ?

    Bio: Basque born guitarist Rosa Arruti has been working since 2000 under the
    anonymous alias Nad Spiro, her solo venture that sets out to build a world
    of electronic textures and sound fictions from a complex processed guitar
    set-up. She has played also with some of Barcelona’s most cutting edge bands
    and kept international collaborations with the likes of My Cat Is An Alien,
    Kim Cascone, The Asterism and MK Ibáñez. Her records have been released by
    the pioneering Spanish experimental label Geometrik.

  • Carrie Skinner - Victor, is there anyone there?

    29th August 2016 @ 3:30 pm - 3:45 pm

    Carrie Skinner
    ‘Victor, is there anyone there?’

    The Australian radio production of ‘Frankenstein’ starring George Edwards in many of the roles was originally broadcast in thirteen parts on ‘2GB Radio’ Sydney in 1931. An unfaithful appropriation of Mary Shelley’s novel, the serial will be exhumed and rebroadcast over thirteen days. Listeners are invited to visit Creative Lab at the CCA at 3pm, 29th Aug -11th Sep (except 3rd Sep).

    Some-where/some-when an actor, their costume, a script and a prop. Someone is trying to get through to you. From the darkness of an imagined/invisible performance space, emerges the body of a voice. Hello? Who’s calling? A polymorphic interpolator talking over the radio, reaching over out of one blind space into another. Victor, is there anyone there?

    Biography:

    Carrie Skinner is a visual artist and undergraduate of the Glasgow School of Art, she completed an MLitt in Theatre Practices at Glasgow University in 2015. Her practice instinctively foregrounds thematic, structural and aesthetic devices emanating from a long standing engagement with the epic narratives of Gothic literature.


  • Andrew Hill - Stille Lyd: Part II – Høvringen

    29th August 2016 @ 3:45 pm - 4:00 pm

    Stille Lyd means ‘Quiet Sound’. This piece was developed from recordings made in January 2014 around the log cabins at Høvringen, 1000 meters above sea level on the edge of the Rondane National Park. The air temperature was -13oC and there was significant additional wind chill, which made the recording process a challenging but highly rewarding experience. The site was almost completely deserted and the isolation and silence of the location highlighted how many sounds there were to hear.
    The work itself is developed from a range of different sound recordings captured at Høvringen, from the patter of snow falling on clothing, to the bubbling of water underneath a frozen stream and the crunch and swish of skis and boots on snow.
    The work attempts to capture an impression of the experience of being in that ‘quiet’ location, an environment that is as brutal as it is beautiful.’

    Bio: Andrew Hill (b.1986) is a composer of electroacoustic music, specialising in
    studio composed works both acousmatic (purely sound based) and audio-
    visual. His works have been performed extensively across the UK, as well as in
    Europe and the US.

    His works are composed with materials captured from the human and natural
    world, seeking to explore the beauty in everyday objects.

  • Anna Friz - White Night

    29th August 2016 @ 4:30 pm - 5:00 pm

    Anna Friz- White Night

    Audio visual installation. 2 FM transmitters, 12 radio receivers, additional 4-channel audio through 7 open cone speakers, foam core blocks, projection.

    The ubiquitous infrastructure of the electrical grid powers most nocturnal activity, and its surplus is ticks, static, and hums transmitted by many nodes: buildings, devices, lights, and lines; by damp electrical wires, power stations, connection boxes, irate refrigerators, and ungrounded home entertainment systems alike. The stars recede and the sky grows blank from the strength of light pollution, a process accentuated by dense fog in Ljubljana in winter. No sun, no stars, no sleep; only diffuse, uneasy light, in a pale sky drawn close to the ground.

    White Night was created as part of my larger broadcast and transmission project City at Night during a two-month residency with Kultural Center Tobačna 001 and radioCONA, in Ljubljana, Slovenia in December 2013-January 2014. For White Night, I recorded and photographed electrical transformer stations and power lines around the city, and added live electronic elements such as theremin to the composition. Further development and documentation at Liebig 12 projectspace, Berlin, Germany, September 2014. Travel funding received from the Canada Council for the Arts, Media Art division.


  • Clemens von Reusner - Hafen Beddingen

    29th August 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 5:30 pm

    The sonic landscape of the inland port "Beddingen" (Lower Saxony - in the northern part of Germany) is characterized by large dynamic contrasts in the tension between lofi and hifi-soundscape. Amid the cranes, railway wagons, cargo ships, trucks, conveyors and storage tanks there is still sometimes an almost unreal silence in which time seems to stand still and even the slightest noise can be perceived. In contrast to this silence there are enormous acoustic events: dramatic metallic strokes, roaring and murmur, high-frequency squeals, shrieks and a deep rumble of cranes when conveying the various goods. The organisation of the composition seizes this structure by documenting and contrasting sound pictures, which are different in structural density and dynamics. In the course of the composition sound
    transformation processes constantly increase until finally the modified sound material hardly allows any conclusions about its origin.
    First broadcast: Deutschlandradio Kultur, Germany, 2009-03-27

    Clemens von Reusner (b. 1957) is a composer and soundartist based in Germany, who is focused on acousmatic music. He studied musicology and music-education, drums with Abbey Rader and Peter Giger. Since the end of the 1970s he has been engaged in electroacoustic music, radio plays and soundscape compositions. At the end of the 1980s development of the music software KANDINSKY MUSIC PAINTER. Member of the German Composers Society (DKV). 2006-2009 member of the
    board of the EUROPEAN FORUM KLANGLANDSCHAFT (FKL). 2010-2013 member of the board of the German Society For Electroacoustic Music (DEGEM).

  • Clear Spot

    29th August 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 6:00 pm

    Shorts including:

    1) Isabelle Stragliati – Open Sea (6’07)
    2) Lin Li - Unvoiced-Voiced (3:39)
    3) Cara Tolmie - Crying for No Reason Mash Up (3:58)
    4) Lin Li - Mistily the wind blows (5:28)

    Details:

    1) Isabelle Stragliati – Open Sea 2013-2016
    "It rises in the Black Forest and it goes to the Black Sea […]". This sentence (from
    Annea Lockwood's about her work A Sound Map of the Danube 1) deeply resonates in
    me. For a long time. I wanted to understand why. Then the memories came back to
    surface.
    Turkey, September 2003. Another shore of the Black Sea. I remember that I made there
    one of my first very short field recording (even if I don’t call it that way already).
    Meanwhile, Annea Lockwood was collecting her recordings from the Danube.
    Arles, July 2013. 4 days of practicing Field Recording. I reckon I’m doing my first ones
    there. I start to establish a sound map of a portion of the Rhone’s shore, undertaking -
    without knowing it, a similar approach than Annea Lockwood.
    Using archives recorded at 10 years of interval, Open Sea tells about my return to the
    act of creation like a slow renaissance, and digs out the memories buried under
    kilometers of water.

    Bio: Coming from the visual arts, Isabelle Stragliati turned to the sound medium in 2002 through DJing, as an extension of her approach of the film editing (under the moniker Rescue). She then practiced numerous aspects of radio production (as radio host, producer, music programmer, technician and program director) before reconciling it with her creative work. Her productions, involving field recording, documentary, musique concrète or techno, have been broadcast on national radios (France Culture, Radio Campus France), in festivals and events in Europe (Longueur d’Ondes, Futura, Brouillage, Take You There in France, Radiophrenia in Scotland, CinemaInYourHead in Luxembourg) and in contemporary art centers (CNAC de Grenoble, La Criée à Rennes, Casino Luxembourg).

    2) Lin Li - Unvoiced-Voiced
    With her face submerged in a bucket of water, Lin Li sings a popular Chinese song Mo Li Hua (Jasmine Flower). Apart from being a personal attempt to achieve a free voice, Lin's act references Tunisia's Jasmine Revolution of 2010/11 and its subsequent development, as well as unauthenticated reports that some Chinese local authorities had banned the sale of jasmine in 2011, seemingly fearful of the symbolic meaning attached to the flower.

    3) Cara Tolmie - Crying for No Reason Mash Up (3:58)
    When an artist or someone in their bedroom does a cover or a remix what new value/capacity/potential (if any is) added to the song? Is this addition directly related to the performers own ‘raw talent'? Is the owner (possessor) of a skilled singing voice the one most likely to achieve spontaneous emancipation (Overnight fame)? Why do so many people want to sing the same covers? Is there some connection that wants to be made?Do we all inhabit the same melody and words one after the other in order to connect? Or is it more like a competition? A moment to shine by proving that my rendition is more raw and unique than yours?Conversely, are we able to flood a song with the excess of all of our performed emotion simultaneously in order to burst it?To lose ourselves together within the deluge?

    Cara Tolmie is an artist and musician who experiments from within the intersections of performance, sound and moving image and draws from debates surrounding feminisms, the politics of music and experimental pedagogy. She often works collaboratively and has recently made performances with Patrick Staff at Outpost, Norwich and KW, Berlin; Paul Abbott for the Counterflows festival and at Raven Row and Whitechapel Gallery; and Kimberley O'Neill and France-Lise McGurn at Tramway, Glasgow and South London Gallery. She is also part of the editorial collective for Cesura//Acesso Journal, a publication exploring music, politics and poetics.

    4) Lin Li - Mistily the wind blows
    A nebulous web of sounds and feelings created by sequences of five sung notes put together according to the change ringing method ‘Double differential bob doubles’.

    Biography: Originally from Hong Kong, Lin Li now resides in Glasgow. She started using sound as a creative medium a few years ago and often uses her own voice in her work.

  • Lin Li - Change Ringing Change

    29th August 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 6:45 pm

    Change ringing (or method ringing) is the art of bell ringing established in England in the 17th century and is still practised in many churches in Britain. This sound piece examines the essence and some of the rules of change ringing, and considers the question of whether this form of bell ringing is music and what its musical qualities are. Interviews with experienced bell ringers and musical experts are interwoven with news reports, field recordings, and sound clips created in accordance with the main principles of change ringing whilst extending the boundary of this art.

    With thanks to the Guild of Bellringers of St Mary’s Cathedral in Glasgow; Angela Deakin; Jonathan Frye; Eva Moreda; Steven Worbey; and Shantiketu

    Lin Li lives in Scotland and has been using sound and moving image in her artistic practice since 2011. Being an experienced choral singer, she is particularly interested in the human voice and the diverse sonic and affective experiences and ideas generated or communicated through speech, singing and other creative use of the voice.

  • Gregory Whitehead - On the Shore Dimly Seen

    29th August 2016 @ 6:45 pm - 7:00 pm

    ON THE SHORE DIMLY SEEN

    Gelsey Bell (vocals, improvisation)
    Anne Undeland (narration)
    Gregory Whitehead (writer, director, composition, vocals)

    The interrogation log of detainee 063, as revealed to the public through Wikileaks, offers a detailed hour-by-hour chronicle of the so-called “special interrogation plan” approved by Donald Rumsfeld and others in the Bush administration during the months following 9/11. In reading through the entire log that records many months of abuse, I was struck by the persistent use of loud music to assault the senses of the detainee; and in particular, the use of the Star Spangled Banner, during which the detainee would be ordered to stand at attention with his hand over his heart.

    Verse two of the national anthem begins:
    On the shore dimly seen, through the mists of the deep,
    Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
    What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
    As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?

    These lines provided me with both a title and a commitment to break the “dread silence” that continues to surround the regime of no-touch torture imposed within Camp Delta at Guantanamo Bay. By responding to the violence of 9/11 with torture, we betrayed our most fundamental values, using our flag and anthem as props in acts of criminal abuse. Yet to this day, despite extensive documentation of extreme human rights violations, not a single perpetrator has been held accountable. What is half-disclosed also remains half-concealed. At the heart of this broadcast: one day in the no-touch torture of detainee 063, as expressed through my verbatim voicing. Other texts float through and around the log, voiced by Anne Undeland: lists of the approved techniques, brief histories in the development of no-touch torture, and analysis of what is happening within the interrogation log itself. Extended improvisations by vocalist Gelsey Bell both embody and repel the cruel logic of the texts.

    GELSEY BELL is a singer, songwriter, and scholar. Described by the New York Times as a “brandy-voiced” “winning soprano” whose performance of her own music is “virtuosic” and “glorious noise,” she has released multiple albums and her work has been presented internationally. She performs regularly as an experimental vocalist, culling from a wide range of techniques and styles to create her own performance works, to literally voice those of contemporary composers, and to explore improvisation..She is a core member of thingNY and Varispeed, and she has worked with numerous performance creators including Robert Ashley, Matthew Barney and Jonathan Bepler, Ne(x)tworks, Kimberly Bartosik, Yasuko Yokoshi, Dave Malloy, Rachel Chavkin, John King, Chris Cochrane and Fast Forward (as the Chutneys), Kate Soper, and Rick Burkhardt, among others. Gelsey also has a PhD from New York University in Performance Studies.

    ANNE UNDELAND is an actress based in the Berkshires, widely known for her virtuosic voicing of one-woman shows such as The Belle of Amherst. She has worked with Whitehead on numerous projects for the BBC, including The Loneliest Road and Four Trees Down From Ponte Sisto.

    GREGORY WHITEHEAD has created more than one hundred radio plays, essays and acoustic adventures for the BBC, Radio France, Australia’s ABC, NPR and other
    broadcasters. Often interweaving documentary and fictive materials into playfully
    unresolved narratives, Whitehead’s aesthetic is distinguished by a deep philosophical commitment to radio as a medium for poetic navigation and free association. As a vocalist, he has performed as both soloist and chorister in a wide variety of ensembles since his days as a boy soprano. Whitehead has tracked the history of no-touch torture through writings on Desperado Philosophy, and believes that by responding to violence with torture, we betray the deepest values woven into the American flag. He thanks Rebecca Gordon, Alfred McCoy and William Cavanaugh for their brilliant researches into the darkest corners of the American imagination; thanks also to Gelsey Bell and Anne Undeland for the courage and intensity they bring to every performance


  • Live-to-Air - Maya Dunietz / Cara Tolmie

    29th August 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
    CCA Theatre space

    Cara Tolmie - Cancamon

    Cancamon is a new performance developed in connection with research done as part of Cara’s residency She’s Singing - I can feel boxes break at KKH, Stockholm 2015-16. Physical sampling and repetition form the basis as Cara investigates signifiers and roles of ‘The Singer’ in contemporary popular culture, experimental and dance musics. The work puts a range of experiments in voice and movement to use in asking questions about whose affects and languages the singing voice acts as a locus for, testing how the performing body might be able to disrupt and infect the flows of value that profit from this voice.

    Cara Tolmie is an artist and musician who experiments from within the intersections of performance, sound and moving image and draws from debates surrounding feminisms, the politics of music and experimental pedagogy. She often works collaboratively and has recently made performances with Patrick Staff at Outpost, Norwich and KW, Berlin; Paul Abbott for the Counterflows festival and at Raven Row and Whitechapel Gallery; and Kimberley O'Neill and France-Lise McGurn at Tramway, Glasgow and South London Gallery. She is also part of the editorial collective for Cesura//Acesso Journal, a publication exploring music, politics and poetics.

    Maya Dunietz -Round Structure

    A solo piece for voice, electronics, small instruments and audience. The piece attempts to explore how an intense physical performance is transformed through the medium oF radio. The piece has been commissioned by Radiophrenia and this performance will be its world premiere.

    A Hörspiel triptych of psychic melodrama, set in a London both past and present:

    1. Greenwich Aggregates - 2. The Three Compasses - 3. A Blackened Emirates.

    Disparate narratives coalesce in a trail of crime and misdirection stretching across the city, leading us ever closer to an unknowable truth. Everything connects, nothing is reconciled. “Only now & then, something would make me remember…”

  • Stefano Gianotti - Impure Waves

    29th August 2016 @ 9:30 pm - 10:00 pm

    Impure Waves is a radio-piece for voice, harmonica, oscillators and mobile phones. It is entirely born during the author’s residency at the WORM Foundation in November 2015. The piece starts with a quotation of the Wikipedia definition of waves read by the author; successively, the text has been smashed by dozens and dozens of Google translations until it has been reduced to the single sentence Plate ten. A Christian family? Words, landscapes, scretches recorded on a mobile phone interact with sounds produced by old modular synthesizers like ARP 2500, ARP 2600 and VCS3. The piece proceeds as a series of abstract sound paintings, based on the idea that life is made of contamination, impure waves which at the end make us all happy (the very last picture proposes a sort of salterello based on a woman laughing). In 2016, IMPURE WAVES has become part of the RADIA Network.

    Combining elements from historically significant broadcasts and transmissions, ESR is a conceptual "emergency broadcast" for an unidentified country that stands at the brink of unified peace during a tumultuous time of war.

    Sometimes contradictory, at turns surreal, this 30-minute news and information program also includes interludes of musicality that combine broadcast and shortwave radio, wax cylinder recordings, turntable noise and other detritus of the airwaves.

    This program was created especially for the medium of radio, with radio itself being the primary source material.

    Artist bio: Pete Petrisko is a multimedia artist based in Phoenix Arizona (USA).


  • Snoring by Numbers - DinahBird & JP Renoult

    29th August 2016 @ 11:00 pm - 12:00 am

    An international sonic survey of snores, grunts, dribbling and whatever else we do as we slumber the night away. Recorded all over the world, from Paris to Tasmania, Copenhagen to Italy, and broadcast during the Sao Paolo’s Biennale 2012.

    A State of Slumber is the first edition of the world snorescape project, a snorecast compiled and edited by DinahBird. It produced for Knut Auferman and Sarah Washington’s Mobile Radio Sao Paolo, a three month radio art station created for the 30th São Paulo Biennial, 2012.

    It was also adapted as Snoring by Numbers (with JP Renoult) for an installation at the Cork Artists Collective Guesthouse (Ireland) in september 2013 and broadcast as a part of Mobile Radio’s Dubbelradio, a 24 hour two-frequency festival, Stockholm, Sweden, 2013, Anna Friz‘s the City at Night transmission project for Radio Cona and features as a part of her mix exploring the environment, morphology and taxonomy of the little people inside the radio for Radio Macba.

    Thanks to the sleeping souls who took part in the first ever (to my knowledge) snorescape : Valérie Vivancos, Julia Drouhin, Ward Weis, Etienne Noiseau, Carlo Giordani, JP Renoult, Rodolphe Alexis and Marianne Decoster-Taivalkoski.

    DinahBird and Jean-Philippe Renoult are sound and radio artists based in Paris. They often work together making radio works, installations and soundtracks.
    Recent works include Take Flight, a composed soundscape starring planes, drones and frequencies, made for ABC’s Creative Audio Unit and A.V.I.O.N, a sister installation inspired by the parallel world of aircraft navigation systems. DinahBird’s radio relay record A Box of 78s is having a rest after it’s 18 month trip around the world. Jean-Philippe’s audio graffitti project, TagAudioLoops was last seen and heard at Waverly train station…

  • The Chants Beneath Episode Two

    30th August 2016 @ 12:00 am - 1:00 am

    The Chants Beneath Project features a total of 120 newly commissioned sonic works from the world's most exciting sound artists. Each piece makes use of, or responds to, a unique cassette-tape loop created by artist Jeremy Young.

    http://chantsbeneath.net

    Episode two: Brokenness and Glitch
    New work by James Murray, Knut Aufermann, Émilie Payeur, Steph Colbourn, Helga Fassonaki, Vitor Joaquim, Stefano Pilia, Tamara Lorenz, The Dead Rat Orchestra and the Orchestra of Broken Instruments.

    Jeremy Young is an artist and entrepreneurial strategist working predominantly within the flexible borders of sound media. His creative work includes compositions for recording and live performance, reel-to-reel tape collage, sound-poetry and audio-visual scoring. His main interests as a performer lie in the analog treatment of surface-based audio (piezo mic'd objects and surfaces, manipulating tape and tone via texture and voltage), as he is not concerned with what one hears but how it is heard and through what lens. He has performed and released material throughout Europe, Asia, the US, UK and Canada. In 2014, he was awarded a Media Artists' Assistance Grant by Wave Farm (NYSCA) to create 125 unique artist edition double-sided loop pieces towards developing sustainable audience engagement with the sonic arts, housing all the loops online in a freely streamable living archive and commissioning over 120 sound artists to create new work using each singular piece. Visit the project here to view the list of participating artists.

    Young's main sonic project is a collaborative trio with Ian Temple and Jesse Perlstein called Sontag Shogun that makes use of analog sound treatments and nostalgic solo piano compositions in harmony to depict abstract places in our memory. However, Young recently released his debut duo album with cellist/multi-instrumentalist Aaron Martin entitled, A Pulse Passes from Hand to Hand on Chihei Hatakeyama's label White Paddy Mountain. He also performs in a trio with pianist Shinya Sugimoto and 16mm projectionist Joel Schlemowitz as well in a post-Celtic folk duo with Daniel Merrill called Foxout!. Young has shared the stage with notable artists such as Hauschka, Julia Kent, Aki Onda, Matana Roberts, Jason Lescalleet, Aaron Martin, Dead Rat Orchestra, Barn Owl, Sam Shalabi, Alexander Turnquist, Tom Carter, Noveller, Ben Vida & Koen Holtkamp among many others.

    *Young has been invited to Geneva by the Musée d'Éthnographie to co-curate and conduct a residency series in 2016 exploring the collection of ethnomusicological recordings in the Museum's Phonothèque archive.

    4. Vonverhille & Punk Is Dada - Backsnarf (v2)

    Ode to Algorithm
    Before the 20th century everything lived inside a painting in the next century everything will live inside the screen. We must solicit the move otherwise we will never freely walk into the screen we will have always been pushed or dropped from above and the cracks of impact will be relentlessly visible for the rest of eternity.

    Perception is habitual and automatic, it negates the sublime PUNK IS DADA and Vonverhille hack the arts to suspend our perception. They toy with our image ecology leaving us somewhere between the life and the living. They are deeply unpersonal therefore they are personal to all they let the viewer ponder subject, object, sound or animal - Life trapped inside motionless matter they are the future.

    At times like these we recognize the body or the shell after its been molded and manipulated through diets, surgery, saline solution body modifications such as bagel heads or synthol freaks but the norm is much stranger babies been born from frozen eggs and organs grown for commodities. Life is not what it seems my dear…. The art as object is priceless waste. Sleep is the only thing capitalism can’t tap into so lets dream.

    Bio: PUNK IS DADA Lives and works in Berlin. She studied at The Glasgow School of Art in 2008 and went on to attend the European Graduate School Summer Institute in 2015/16.

    6. Andrew Reddy - Precession

    From the album 'Spitting Broken Teeth and Mistranslations'
    About the track:
    As I was working on this project I explored the idea of taking non-audio data files and using it as a source of information to generate digital audio files. On this track I used files from NMR spectroscopy, a technique used to study the molecular structure of matter by examining the resonant frequencies of the atoms in the sample by suspending it in a strong magnetic field and exciting the nuclei using radio waves. I used the hydrogen nuclei resonances from several different but structurally similar molecules obtained as part
    of my PhD studies to form the basis of the piece together with recordings of the machine operating and audio derived from extracting light frequencies from pictures of the instrument. Ultimately what the listener is hearing is a symphony of one the most fundamental components of matter resonating together.

    Bio: I am an independent artist from Kildare, Ireland. I come from primarily a rock/extreme metal background and I have been working on atmospheric and experimental electronic music for several years. I work as a research chemist in the field of drug discovery and
    methodology development and I am continually looking for ways to fuse my science with my music.

    1. Anna Terzaroli - Dark Path #4

    "Dark Path #4" is an acousmatic work of electroacoustic music. The sounds used in the piece were recorded in a soundscape dear to the author located in the Italian region of Marche. They were processed then composed together to create the musical work. "Dark Path #4" can be defined as a journey through light, shadow, shape, color, drifts and landings.

    Bio: Anna Terzaroli holds a Master's degree from the Santa Cecilia Conservatory (New Technologies and Musical Languages Dept.) in Rome, where she is currently completing her Composition studies. As a composer she is dedicated to contemporary acoustic and electroacoustic music. Her musical works are selected and performed in many concerts and festivals in Italy and abroad while her research works in the field of Music Informatics and Electroacoustic Music are presented in international conferences.

    2. David Steans – Lucid Dreamer

    Champagne Murders, Eight channel audio piece. Original music by Clear Phantom and Stamina Nudes. Voice acting by Georgia Boukla, John Mylotte, Bad News, Keith Senior, David Steans, Hazel Steans, Jennifer Steans and Bryan Smith. Champagne Murders is a collection of eight spoken word pieces written, recorded and produced by myself. Each short fiction deals anecdotally with some dubious 'murder'. Whilst conceived and previously presented as a suite, each Murder functions as a self-contained piece, and so could be presented individually if appropriate.

    Bio: David Steans (born 1984, Stockport) is an artist and writer currently based in Leeds, England. Since 2015 he has worked as a Lecturer on the BA Fine Art programme at Leeds College of Art.

His writing was included in Cadavere Quotidiano (2014), an anthology of writing by contemporary artists published by Project X Foundation for Art & Criticism.

    “I tell stories and invent histories, as well as subvert existing ones. I work across writing, sound, moving image, performance and installation. I am influenced by horror, as well as documentary modes, adapting and appropriating them in order to complicate familiar representations. Recent work has centred around the spoken word, including for example the rapped and sung delivery of fictive texts that unpick their own ‘telling’ through wordplay, repetition, ‘corpsing’ and vocal effects.” David Steans 2016

    3. Volker Hennes - Ambassador

    From album - Emperor Ambassador 14 (Entr’acte in 2015)

    An exciter slowly glides down a tilted and unstretched drumhead which is affixed with a contact microphone whose signal is sent back to the exciter. Each kind of drumhead determines the distinct motion and response of the exciter, resulting in particular gliding speeds, feedback frequencies, dynamics and tonal progression. The gliding procedure on each drumhead is 
repeated and superimposed up to 20 times.

    Bio: Volker Hennes (born 1976) studied at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne; works as composer and sound-artist focussing on methods of production and reproduction of temporal and local organized sound - synthesized and replicated incidences.

    4. Timo Kahlen - Footprint

    The bristle surface beneath our feet opening, breaking and tearing apart, as waves and water and debris rush into the instable vessel. Resolute and full of life: the protagonist, vehemently gurgling water and inarticulate sound. Possible meanings concealed (withheld), contained and spluttering, gurgling inside and out. ((Initially made with environmental change and the rise of sea levels in mind; but this might not be the only current reference. Please find your own interpretation.))))

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

  • Simon Cacheux - Inhabited Spaces

    30th August 2016 @ 2:30 am - 3:00 am

    Inhabited Spaces was originally conceived as a series of 5 minutes episodes of sonic explorations. The main idea was to follow, through his/her sonic journal, an explorer of unknown places. It could be highlands on another planet, some nebulae seen from a spaceship, an abandoned industrial site of another kind…
    This piece brings new materials, combining them with some of the previous episodes, to create a new abstract soundscape. This time, the journey could be just into our explorer’s head, once back on earth, like some recollections of the past trips across the universe.

    Biography

    Simon Cacheux is a protean sound maker, working as a sound designer, a musician and sound artist. He is very much interested in the texture of sounds, how they blend with each other and how microfictions appear within the sounds themselves. Marked by minimalism, he tends to centre his musical activities on drones, ambient and noise music. Deeply interested in technology, he explores the possibilities of analogue synthesizers, DIY devices, handmade sound processing softwares and field recordings.
    Born in 1984, Simon Cacheux has completed a 3 years cycle at the École Nationale Supérieure Louis Lumière in the Sound department. He also gives sound design classes at the École de Condé Art School in Paris, where he lives and works.

    1. Saltings - Manifest (for radio and double bass)

    A 9min soundscape for double bass, radio, and electronics, written by Andrew Cooke and performed by Saltings. Its goal is for all instruments to play off each other and create similar timbres, the main driving influence being the constant mercurial sound of the radio. When played live, both the bass and analog radio are improvised and simultaneously treated through live programming. This is a recent studio version of the piece, which shall hopefully appear on our next album.

    Bio: Musical soundscapes, drones and experiments that explore the eerie of our pastoral surroundings.... Saltings was born originally in the mind of Andrew Cooke, a Dublin-born Bristol- based composer and performer. Over the summer of 2015 he wrote and released an eponymous album under the name Saltings, attempting to musically capture the 'English Eerie', a small, possibly made-up movement he read about in an article somewhere. Now he performs live with the help of Caitlin (double bass) and Liz (cello), the three of them unleashing avalanches of noise whenever possible.

    2. Viv Corringham - Melbourne Calls

    In Melbourne, Australia, I met three sound-oriented people. I asked them to take me to places where sound is the key element. Warren Burt, a composer, took me to the loud, exuberant Southern Cross Station. Anthony Megan, an acoustic ecologist, did a soundwalk where animal, bird and city sounds exist together. Catherine Clover, an audiovisual artist interested in the language of birds, chose a quiet canal path. Later I went to these three places alone and responded to their soundscapes with vocal improvisations. This work includes (unprocessed) field recordings, comments from my three guides and my singing.

    Bio: Viv Corringham is a British vocalist and sound artist living in New York. Her work includes performance, installations, radio and soundwalks. Performances draw on an international career in improvised and experimental singing, while her sound work explores people's relationship with familiar places and the link to personal history and memory. Twice selected as a McKnight Composer Fellow and recently resident artist at Harvestworks Media Arts, NYC, her work has been presented in Europe, Asia, North America and Australia. “(Her) voice is a thing of wonder, ranging from lilting folkiness to speaking-in-tongues wildness."

    http://www.vivcorringham.org

    3. Louise Wilson - Young Bird

    Young Bird - a 4 minute piece I produced whilst taking classes at the Institute of Sonology in the Hague. I devised the track as an exercise that would allow me to experiment with techniques I had learned on the course. I recorded the vocals onto two 26 second tape loops stretched around the studio and manipulated field recordings of The Hague's rose-ringed parakeets using SuperCollider and Trevor Wishart's CDP.

    liminal.co.nf

    4. Sarah Boothroyd - Power and Freedom

    A round-the-world tour of protests in Canada, England, France, Spain, Ukraine, the United States, and beyond. This radiophonic work was inspired by contemporary composer Luigi Nono's use of fragmented and layered political texts, as well as his method of treating 'real world' artifacts as potential music. Creative Commons field recordings provided by Matthias Kispert and Arno Peeters.

    5. Reign Damage - Support

    6. AO Hirsch_Summe 1 – In a Seldom Land

    After numerous concerts and performances throughout the last years, Summe 1 is Andreas O. Hirsch‘s first release on makiphon. The album concentrates on peculiar soundscapes and drony pieces, carefully interwoven by means of pitched harmonicas, electric guitars, mini fans, delays and the electric palm leaf, an electroacoustic invention of the artist. The eight titles evoke a space somewhere between interstellar geography (Maxwell Mountains – a plateau on planet Venus), abstract physics (Teilchenbeschleuniger), botanical scenery and animality: Kemeri 5 am features nocturnal crane calls that Hirsch recorded on a bike trip in a swamp near Riga while he was busy with decoding bird messages via morse code. Opossum Pravda is dedicated to the tenacious marsupial that likes to wander around at night and which is able to hang from trees by its tail. Kautschukwaage seems to suggest an exotic setting and provides a link to the rubber bands which one hears resonating in the miniature. Sleeve designed by the artist. 300 copies. Mastered by Joseph Suchy.

  • The Bermuda Triangle Test Transmission Broadcasts - Balfron Tower

    30th August 2016 @ 4:00 am - 4:30 am

    Poplar, East London: Erno Goldfinger’s Balfron Tower hums. Melanie Clifford & Howard Jacques have been living and working there with Bow Arts, while the tower awaits 'renovation'. For this 28 minute portrait they recorded and played back (on various devices) sounds from within the building: the humming of the enormous, ancient heating system; the lifts; radios in the basement; games of marbles in the stairwell, and sounds from outside: the derelict playground at the base of the tower; kicking a football; stroking the concrete. The piece is constructed from live improvisational play: all sounds are field recordings played at varying speeds.

  • Group Zero - Concrete Mirror

    30th August 2016 @ 4:30 am - 5:00 am

    Concrete Mirror is a thirty-minute acousmatic work that responds to the mechanisms of war. Designed as a radiophonic review of Peter Kennard’s recent retrospective at the Imperial War Museum and conceived in three chapters, the piece investigates the military’s role in the development of technology. The first chapter takes its inspiration from the acoustic mirrors built on the Kent coast during the interwar period, which were used to listen out for approaching enemy aircraft; the second chapter re-imagines drone warfare as a mechanised minuet in the sky; while the closing chapter reworks Kennard’s 2015 installation, The Noose Of Noughts, which is a sober relay of statistics that highlight the depth of governmental and corporate involvement in global conflict. The first chapter was originally broadcast by Resonance FM in the spring and the complete piece was released by The Imaginary Archive via Bandcamp in May 2016.

    Artist: Group Zero
    Title: Concrete Mirror
    Duration: 26m 53s
    Year: 2016
    Composer: Ilia Rogatchevski
    Voices: Ilia Rogatchevski and Laura Michelle Smith
    Genre: Radio Art / Sound Art

    Artist Bio

    Ilia Rogatchevski is a Russia-born multimedia artist, journalist and broadcaster living and working in London. Taking cues from insurrectionist modernists like Guy Debord, William S. Burroughs and George Maciunas his prolific output varies from painting and collage to sound installations and radio work. Appropriation and subversion play a key role in his practice. Phrases and images are culled from popular sources, detourned and disseminated back into the public sphere. Rogatchevski is currently undertaking an MA in Sound Art at the London College of Communication, where he is exploring, via the medium of VLF radio, the impact of electromagnetic pollution on our acoustic ecology.

  • Alloway Dawn Chorus - Chris Dooks

    30th August 2016 @ 5:00 am - 8:00 am

    Chris Dooks : Biography

    Dr Chris Dooks (b.1971) is an Edinburgh-based interdisciplinary artist and academic researcher. In 1998 Dooks began to pursue his own works full time as a professional multimedia artist after directing arts programmes in his early career.

    His 2014 PhD is titled “The Fragmented Filmmaker – Emancipating The Exhausted Artist” and is both a text and a conceptual vinyl trilogy. The expansive project aimed to provide Dooks with a ‘container’ to house many sonic experiments in overcoming chronic health problems. On a more ‘Radiophonic’ level, in 2015 Eilean Records released Dooks’ first post-doctoral album ‘Accretion Disc’ which contains many shortwave radio works.

    1. Alan Currall - Excerpt from a natural history diary

    2. Ben Glas - Inging (From My Space To Yours)
    This piece is a part of a larger set of experiments that deal primarily with the interaction of sine wave tones, time and the individual’s perception within a specific placement in space. Using six different tones (300Hz, 400Hz, 500Hz, 600Hz, 700Hz and 800Hz) that are projected through six different speakers, a set of binaural microphones and a concept I like to call “the Relativity Drone”; this piece documents my physical movement through space and time, while loosely composing beats of harmony and dissonance. Through moments of stasis and rapid movement, I was hoping to invoke an introspective state, that could translate to others and their perception, as the primary instruments are sine waves and naturally subjective.

    Bio: Ben Glas is an interdisciplinary artist and experiential composer, whose work explores and questions the phenomenon of consciousness and awareness through interactive sonic installations. Through focusing on time, space and the individual’s relative interaction as tools for scoring compositions, Glas’s sonic work plays with ideas of egalitarian and alienated listening situations. Amongst his lifelong goals is bringing music and sound back to the experiential body, and thus an awareness and consciousness of self. He currently resides in Portland, Oregon.

    5. Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch - A London Thoroughfare 2 A.M.


    A London Thoroughfare 2 A.M. is a mise en musique of a 1914 poem by the Amy Lowell.
    The pieces uses feld recordings sourced around London at night, music (electronics, acoustic piano), and recorded voice, to highlight and refect the mood and words of her work, creating a sound world that transports the listener into the universe of 2 AM London, both now and 102 years ago. The piece is an exploration on how the identity of a city can remain unchanged at its core for years, and attempts to capture the cyclical, emotional and literal soundscape of a place.

    Bio: Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch is a London based, Paris born composer and pianist whose output spans flm score, bespoke composition and art installations for the likes of BBC Radio4, Film4, the V&A and the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Her debut album 'Like Water Through The Sand' came out in November 2015 through FatCat's post-classical imprint 130701 and was written for piano, string quartet and electronics.
    She has performed her compositions at the London's Union Chapel, Tallinn Music Week and Brighton Festival.

    6. J Diaz - Millitainment

    Millitainment is a work inspired by a documentary of the same title. In the documentary, the lives of modern day soldiers who control drones are explored. The parallel between video games and drone fighting is made along with the numbess one feels when it comes to making a drone strike--one button can kills hundreds. My piece explores distance between sound objects the numbess the soldiers described when it came to pressing the kill button.

    Bio: J Diaz is a Sound Artist based in New England. His work encompasses sound for theatre, dance and the concert stage. Recently, J has collaborated with theatre and dance companies in Oregon, Colorado, Indiana, New York City, and Ghana, Africa. Currently, J is working with the Accra Theatre Workshop on a new musical, several dance pieces and sound installations. Projects in NYC include working with the RadioTheatre, Poetic Theatre Productions, Stella Adler Studio of Acting, and Wide Eyed Productions where he is resident sound designer. In summer of 2015 J was the Assistant Sound Designer at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.

  • Remote Series 2 - Fernando Godoy - Cu

    30th August 2016 @ 10:00 am - 10:30 am

    Fernando Godoy (Chile): Cu

    El Teniente is the world's largest underground copper mine, located in Cachapoal Province in the Chilean Andes, 7,500 feet above sea level. The mine has been in operation since 1819, and boasts 3000 kilometres of tunnels and more than 10,000 workers. At the mine's surface is the ghost town of Sewell, a place where the mine workers lived during the past century until the 1970s, but underneath copper (or Cu on the periodic table of elements) is still being extracted as the primary export and pillar of the Chilean economy. Chilean sound artist Fernando Godoy was given permission to record El Teniente for three days. He spent one day outside the mine, recording the 'concentration plant': a chain of nonstop working machines where the mineral is transported, depurated and ground into little pieces, and two days inside on level 5 (of 8 levels total), where the mineral is transported by an extensive internal train which loads and unloads rocks via the mine's complex network of tunnels.

    Godoy's acoustic experience of the mine was marked by the repetitive and constant sound of machinery but also by the sound of rocks, metal, the drone of tunnels, its electricity system and the low frequencies of sounds traveling through the tunnels. Cu was made exclusively with mine field recordings, with no sound manipulation during the composition except equalization and layering.

    Bio: Fernando Godoy is an electronics engineer who lives and works in Valparaíso, Chile. He uses diverse media to research sound phenomena and is interested in the study of sound landscapes, the relationship between art and technology, acoustic phenomena and temporal perception. Since 2008 he has been the director of the Tsonami Sound Art Festival in Valparaíso, a platform for the development and diffusion of contemporary sound practices.

    Skálar FM presents The remote series

    In 2014-2015, Skálar FM, a project of Skálar | Sound Art | Experimental Music was
    commissioned by the Creative Audio Unit of Radio National, Australia's national public broadcaster, to create a 5-part radio art series for their program Soundproof. The remote series consists of four programmes created by internationally acclaimed artists working with sound and curated by Anna Friz and Konrad Korabiewski. Each was asked to consider an aspect of the idea of 'remoteness', or the experience of distance.
    As Skálar originates in the small town of Seyðisfjörður on the north east coast of Iceland just below the Arctic circle, 'remoteness' most obviously describes the experience of existing outside of the geographical and cultural centers of power, or by a feeling of having journeyed far away from populous areas across rough seas and rugged, far-flung landscape to reach a so-called end of the earth. More fundamentally, the defining feature of remoteness is the experience of distance, however minute or vast, in time or in space.

    About Skálar:

    Skálar | Sound Art | Experimental Music is an artist-run organization established in 2012 investigating new methods for sound art and experimental music practices. Based in eastern Iceland, it takes the name ‘Skálar’ in honour of the Icelandic pioneer of electronic music Magnús Blöndal Jóhannsson. Skálar acts as both an artist collective and a mobile curatorial platform, and produces an itinerant ( Skálar Sound Art) festival, international exchanges, and limited edition releases of audio and audio-visual works. Curatorially, Skálar's focus is on creating site-speci fic sonic-based interactions with landscapes, both geographical or built. Skálar is particularly interested to generate and support artistic practices which highlight unstable systems, open spaces to new interpretations and use, and which engage in perceptual feedback and affect between site and subject. The organization's activities also include radio with Skálar FM, which promotes both micro-radio and transmission art works as well as interventions into the broadcast domain through commissions and curation developed in concert with various national public radio and independent radio stations.

    Meira Asher - One Blanket Lost (2010) Fela Kuti - Shuffering and Shmiling (1977)

    The trafficking of Nigerian girls for prostitution in Spain started in the early 90s, frequently involving long transits in the Algerian and Moroccan deserts. 'One blanket lost', a common expression used by the traffickers, 'mourns' the loss of blankets in which they buried girls who died on the way. Erica was the sole survivor from the boat which carried her to Spanish waters. She lost her baby girl and boyfriend at sea, after which she started paying a 42,000 Euro debt to her Madam...

    Commissioned by Kunstradio ORF.
    Thanks: Erica Osemwigie, Happy, Rita, Norberto Fresno (Acción en red-Canaries), Carlos Jarque (volunteer-Centro Lugo, Cáritas), Mila Barrera.
    Created by Meira Asher, 2010.

    Followed by 'Shuffering and Shmiling' by Nigerian Highlife pioneer and activist Fela Kuti.

    This program is dedicated to the asylum seekers who are currently jailed at the Holot detention facility in South Israel.

    The Great Law of Hospitality – an unconditional Law, both singular and universal, which ordered that the borders be open to each and every one, to every other, to all who might come, without question or without their even having to identify who they are or whence they came.

  • Anna Friz - How To Pack a Whale

    30th August 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm

    Synopsis: The diurnal anxiety of constant travel transforms dream logic into dream logistics. Vast apartments filled with mutated memories require urgent nighttime packing and transport via all means of motor, machine, or mammal. Absurd dimensional incompatibilities produce carry-on bags which contain whole items of furniture. A radiophonic meditation on the containment and escape of material stuff, moved by land sea and night air, embedded in complex, half-imagined wireless communication channels and signal relays.

    Bio:
    Anna Friz began broadcasting on campus/community radio CiTR Vancouver in 1993. Since then she has created audio art and radiophonic works for extensive international broadcast, installation, or performance in more than 25 countries, where radio is the source, subject, and medium of the work. Anna is Assistant Professor of Sound in the Film and Digital Media Department of University of California, Santa Cruz, a steering member of the artist collective Skálar | Sound Art | Experimental Music based in East Iceland, and a long time affiliate artist of Wave Farm (formerly free103point9) in Acra, New York.

    “Languid she lay, on the kelp now a drying.
    Ashore on the sandbank, her fate there was waiting.
    Once soft salty-scales, now brittle and weathered,
    Sintered dry eyes, half-closed and tethered.
    Where dost thou go for escape.”

    4. Andrea Oskar Hirsch_Summe 1 - 6 Summe 1

    After numerous concerts and performances throughout the last years, Summe 1 is Andreas O. Hirsch‘s first release on makiphon. The album concentrates on peculiar soundscapes and drony pieces, carefully interwoven by means of pitched harmonicas, electric guitars, mini fans, delays and the electric palm leaf, an electroacoustic invention of the artist. The eight titles evoke a space somewhere between interstellar geography (Maxwell Mountains – a plateau on planet Venus), abstract physics (Teilchenbeschleuniger), botanical scenery and animality: Kemeri 5 am features nocturnal crane calls that Hirsch recorded on a bike trip in a swamp near Riga while he was busy with decoding bird messages via morse code. Opossum Pravda is dedicated to the tenacious marsupial that likes to wander around at night and which is able to hang from trees by its tail. Kautschukwaage seems to suggest an exotic setting and provides a link to the rubber bands which one hears resonating in the miniature. Sleeve designed by the artist. 300 copies. Mastered by Joseph Suchy.

    Andreas Oskar Hirsch (DE) works as a musician and visual artist. He has been inventing various musical instruments that he performs with, among others, the Electric Palm Leaf that produces sounds through its spikes. Moreover, by connecting melodicas to the air chambers of a rubber boat or decoding bird calls via Morse code, he investigates sound, setups, narratives and performative processes and pushes them to a point where frenzy, humor, sense, and nonsense meet. In 2014, together with Patricia Koellges, he started makiphon, a record label for experimental music.

    5. Douglas Hedwig - TransSonic Awakenings in D

    Before the advent of the Internet, short-wave radio broadcasts brought sounds and ideas from around the world to anyone with a radio and antennae. TranSonic Awakenings in D is an electro-acoustic composition in three sections, inspired by the fascinating, and often mysterious sounds and diverse languages associated with short-wave radio broadcasts and audio transmissions. The opening of the work thrusts the listener into an alternate sound/space/time dimension, a world organized and experienced through the medium of radio waves. Before digital tuning in receivers, manual tuning of radio frequencies was necessary. So, interspersed throughout this section we hear a pastiche of tuning sounds over a bed of tonal pulsation. For the middle section, the composer has recorded fragments of radio “call-signs,” typically used at the start and end of scheduled short- wave broadcast cycles; in this case, from Argentina. The final section begins with another immediate thrust back into the alternate world in which the work started, but this time, out of the cacophony of sound we hear the reassuring sound of Medieval church bells in central Italy with which the composition concludes.

    Bio: Composer Biography
Composer Douglas Hedwig was a trumpet player with the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra (Lincoln Center, NYC) for 27 years, performing and recording with the finest conductors and soloists in the world. Since turning his full attention to composition in 2011 he has enjoyed considerable and growing success, with recent performances in the U.S.A. at the Blossom Music Festival, and New Music on the Bayou Contemporary Music Festival. He is currently completing a multi-movement String Quintet, commissioned by the Chattanooga Symphony Orchestra, which is scheduled for premiere in 2017. Other recent commissions and compositions include works for brass quintet, organ and percussion, concert band, and solo trumpet, as well as electronic and electro-acoustic music. Several of his compositions are published by Carl Fischer Music (NYC), and TRN Music Publishers (NM).
    Dr. Hedwig is Professor Emeritus at The City University of New York (USA), and previously served on the faculty of The Juilliard School. He is a recipient of awards and grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board, and the City Council of the City of New York.

    6. Danhua Ma - Conversation with Trees

    I try to arouse a soundscape dealing with separation and unification between human and trees. People may say something like,” we can’t hear trees.” How do trees take account of the auditory aspect? Technically, I attached a contact microphone on a random tree that finally I got teeny tiny vibrations from the tree and formed squeaky sound within human hearing range. In "Conversation with Trees," I created two levels' transitions in order to hold the whole piece tight. The first transition is hearing the sound of a tree. The second transition is how to initiate a conversation with trees that listeners will be captivated by their auditory experience.

  • Gabi Schaffner - The Journey of the Earthworm

    30th August 2016 @ 2:30 pm - 3:00 pm

    THE JOURNEY OF THE EARTHWORM
    Gabi Schaffner, 2016, 27 min.

    The earthworm travels on radio frequencies, earthy hacks and conglomerates of audio matter. S/he passes through mosquito clouds (yes, this earthworm can fly!), bird songs, thunderstorms, attends a Finnish summer theatre show, listens to a boy and his mother singing, visits the acoustic remnants of a German garden show, finds happiness in the ringing of porcelain bells and, finally, merges into silence and is gone.

    Voices:
    Teuri Haarla, interview at Galerie Hilbertraum, 16th January 2016, Berlin, Germany; Unknown but stunningly convincing actors of a "kesäteatteri" 2010 in Mid Finland;
    Gibrain and Virpi Nurmi, Gießen, Germany, 2014.

    Gabi Schaffner is an interdisciplinary sound artist, curator, writer and photographer based in Berlin. Travelling forms a vital part of her work – as a source for sound and language recordings but also as “a rite of passage” enabling the artist to explore alternative narrative structures. Her works in the field of radio art have been broadcast internationally, including commissions for Deutschlandradio, SWR, ABC Australia and many more. In 2012 and 2014, she staged in collaboration with reboot.fm a garden radio station in Berlin and Giessen, Hessia. Since 2011 she has been creating several pieces for radia.fm.

  • The Hunchback of South Bermondsey - Jaakko Pallasvuo & Roy Boswell

    30th August 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 3:30 pm

    "South Bermondsey, London SE1. 2555 AD. 1677 AD. 2015 AD.
    Here the scene for “The Hunchback of South Bermondsey” is set: one place, three times. Like a classic audio play, this freaky, funny piece by Jaakko Pallasvuo and Roy Boswell unfolds partly through present-tense description and partly through performed dialogue. It skips back and forth in time to tell the story of our hero, the hunchback Percival. “He’s wearing sweat-stained, un-dyed linen… We notice his neck tattoo. ‘Privilege,’ it reads in a German gothic font. It’s a shoddy tat. Stick and poke.”
    Each line of description is repeated in an ethereal, modified echo. The backup singer, who is present throughout, is at once an emphasis, a parodic chorus, and a cheeky voice of opposition.
    Percival encounters a group of art students who, despite their privileged parentally-paid-for education, are now bored and frustrated. “This is not queer enough to be interesting,” is the judgment passed on their sorry band.
    Scene Two opens (did Scene One ever really begin or end?) with Lancelot, who launches into a melancholy monologue against soft guitar chords. Lancelot describes his medieval surrounings. “A horse outside drags plague victims to their mass graves…you rub a rabbit’s foot for good luck. Dying is easy. It’s loving that scares you—to death.”
    Scene Three finds our unfortunate Percival with a black-slime-filled boil on his body. It ruptures and Scene Four arrives early. Now some version of Merlin the wizard is stirring a cauldron full of witches’ brew, into which he tosses a horse’s heart. He leers into his bubbling concoction and sees visions of the future, where it seems that Lancelot and Percival are having a chat about whether or not to have children. The second act of the saga takes us on two separate paths, when Percival and Lancelot lose each other in the forest.
    I wouldn’t deign to tell you how the story ends, because, unlike most of the presentations over the last day, this one relies on narrative arc. A spoiler might actually spoil it. That said, you’re compelled to keep listening not just in order to follow the twisted plot, but also to experience the choreography of voices and sounds that interlace to form the narrative. The layers of storytelling are deceptively simple; at the end you aren’t left with sounds or descriptions, but with images." - Elvia Wilk

    artist bios:
    Jaakko Pallasvuo (born 1987) lives in Helsinki. His work grapples with social fields and the role of the artist in them. The work takes shape as video, ceramics, writing, murals and performance. Pallasvuo’s work has been shown at 1646, Kunsthalle St Gallen, Seventeen Gallery, CCA Derry~Londonderry, CAC Vilnius, American Medium and Kunstraum Kreuzberg / Bethanien among others.

    Roy Boswell (b. 1983, Helsinki) is a sound dramatist, writer and performer. His working methods focus on audio, text, radio and social interaction. He works in Finnish contemporary dance and other forms of performance both in Finland and abroad.


  • Carrie Skinner - Victor, is there anyone there?

    30th August 2016 @ 3:30 pm - 3:45 pm

    Carrie Skinner
    ‘Victor, is there anyone there?’

    The Australian radio production of ‘Frankenstein’ starring George Edwards in many of the roles was originally broadcast in thirteen parts on ‘2GB Radio’ Sydney in 1931. An unfaithful appropriation of Mary Shelley’s novel, the serial will be exhumed and rebroadcast over thirteen days. Listeners are invited to visit Creative Lab at the CCA at 3pm, 29th Aug -11th Sep (except 3rd Sep).

    Some-where/some-when an actor, their costume, a script and a prop. Someone is trying to get through to you. From the darkness of an imagined/invisible performance space, emerges the body of a voice. Hello? Who’s calling? A polymorphic interpolator talking over the radio, reaching over out of one blind space into another. Victor, is there anyone there?

    Biography:

    Carrie Skinner is a visual artist and undergraduate of the Glasgow School of Art, she completed an MLitt in Theatre Practices at Glasgow University in 2015. Her practice instinctively foregrounds thematic, structural and aesthetic devices emanating from a long standing engagement with the epic narratives of Gothic literature.

    The sounds in this piece were recorded at 6 different community based organisations in the central Dundee area and formed part of my installation at DJCAD Degree Show 2016
    Eagles Wings soup kitchen; Nilupul Centre; Bharatiya Ashram, Dudhope Centre; Dundee Central Mosque; Togs for Toots to Teens and Boomerang Youth Club.
    Over the course of several months I gained the trust of these groups and produced a body of work from the sounds I captured. I re-created the sonic environments, as I perceived them and linked each location with transitional pieces. This was achieved using both real sounds from each of the places, and electronic music I composed.

    Mark A Small is a cultured sound artist, producer and film-maker, with a talent for audio visual installation creation. A digital media expert and creative thinker, with a deep understanding of the community benefits of art. Previous bodies of work have focussed primarily on community based projects with a participatory element. http://www.masmallproductions.com

  • Howlround - East Tower (Radiophrenia Mix)

    30th August 2016 @ 4:30 pm - 5:00 pm

    Originally produced in association with Resonance FM as part of White Noise's programme of artist residencies inside an abandoned London towerblock in the weeks leading up to its demolition. Part of the original BBC Television Centre complex in White City and currently being cleared for re-development, the piece was created entirely from the naturally-occurring sounds found within East Tower, particularly the resonant frequencies of the empty rooms, gutted offices, stairwells and various odds and ends left by its original occupants. These recordings were then manipulated on a trio of ex-BBC reel-to-reel tape machines with all additional effects or artificial reverb strictly forbidden.

    Roughly half of the material featured here was originally broadcast live from the tower on 13th July 2016 as part of Resonance FM's gala 'Live to Air' event. For the remainder this marks the first time it has been broadcast publicly or seen the light of day and almost certainly the very last set of recordings to be made inside this small corner of broadcasting history.

  • Stuart Gurden - Early Reflections with Reverse Gate

    30th August 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 5:30 pm

    Full audio from the solo exhibition 'Early Reflections with Reverse Gate', Transmission Gallery, Glasgow, 2012. (note vocal audio is mixed for the guitar speakers used in the cabinets, and you can't hear the live 'rotary' speaker effects but you get the idea...)
    Taking its title from a mistaken description of an obscure reverberation sound effect, the exhibition presents a series of diverse and, at points, tentatively connected sources placed into a spacious dialogue.
    Installed in the main gallery space, bespoke acoustic panels cover the walls, while scripted dialogues, interrupted by altered field recordings, emit from two speaker cabinets suspended in the space – one based on the design of the Fylingdales radar station in Yorkshire, the other a cannibalized ‘Leslie’ rotating speaker cabinet clad in a 'Raytheon' company t-shirt with added CND badge.
    Spoken dialogues re-enact three edited and re-scripted textual sources: a mutual interview,of tetchily camp musings on creative ambiguity by New York School Poets John Ashbery and Kenneth Koch; an online discussion forum devoted to uncovering the specific effects and techniques used by guitarist Kevin Shields to shape and blur My Bloody Valentine’s two albums of the late ‘80s/early ‘90s; and finally a series of ‘Unwritten Rules’ plagiarised by the CEO of Raytheon, the US radar and defence company. The voices are interrupted by natural and domestic field recordings that have been altered using some of the techniques guessed at by the forum posters, creating a quietly dense soundscape that threatens to overwhelm, or undermine, the deliberations of the speakers.
    The panelling is another approximation, its form largely dictated by Kurt Vonnegut’s description of a sound absorbing alien creature from his 1961 novel Sirens of Titan. The exhibition continued downstairs with a related HD video film 'The Creative Ordeal'. Shot at the Fylingdales radar station, the imagery is filtered through a reference to the Greenham Common ‘mirror’ protest of December 1983 and an approximation of earlier experimental film techniques, while acknowledging the development of electronic sound/image production as a byproduct of post-war military research.

    I’m an artist working primarily with sound and video, and I'm drawn to the tensions between creativity, technological evolution, and the processes of cultural recuperation.
    I graduated from Glasgow School of Art’s MFA in 2000, and have exhibited across the UK and abroad, receiving various awards including the Scottish Arts Council Film & Video Award. I was short-listed for the 2012 Margaret Tait Artist’s Film Award.

    Recent exhibitions and involvements include:
    Recipe for Feedback (not Krakatoa), Creative Lab, CCA, Glasgow; Green Screen, Embassy Gallery, Edinburgh; The Interzone, Mackintosh Gallery, Glasgow School of Art; Three Points of Contact Residency (York St John University/GSA/Newlyn Gallery, Penzance); Early Reflections with Reverse Gate, Transmission Gallery, Glasgow (solo); LUX Moving Image Festival, Tramway; Running Time: Artists Films in Scotland 1960 to Now, Dean Gallery, Edinburgh

  • Clear Spot

    30th August 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 6:00 pm

    Short works including:

    1) Joseph Buckler - A Journey Around an Old Mill (6:34)
    2) Andreas Jonsson - Clydebuilt (7:47)
    3) Joe Franklin - Left and Back (7:11)

    Details:

    1) Joseph Buckler - A Journey Around an Old Mill

    Footsteps in long, lush grass, alongside a flowing river introduce the listener to ‘A Journey Around an Old Mill’. This piece of sound design is made entirely from sounds recorded on a walk around the perimeter of ‘Tonedale Mill’ in Somerset, UK. Tonedale Mill is an abandoned, derelict, empty, textiles mill; with a perimeter made of steel fencing. This piece describes the sounds that surround the walk around it, alongside an emotional soundscape that encapsulates my personal response to the mill and it’s condition.

    Bio: I am a composer, sound artist, mix and mastering engineer from the UK. I write music and sound for many scenarios, including films, music for online film, and theatre. I’m heavily influenced by the composition of music and sound that encapsulates emotion, space, and a narrative/journey. I’m a graduate of The University of Westminster and Bath Spa University (BMus and MA). I’m currently researching for a PhD in composition.

    2) Andreas Johnson - Clydebuilt

    Clydebuilt is a reminiscence and homage to the heritage and history of shipbuilding in Glasgow. It is told from the perspective of a former builder at the years, Gordon (unfortunately I can no longer recall his last name), who worked there from the mid-seventies onwards. It is also told in sound, through field recordings, sound effects and music which together provide an evocative narrative of a time gone by. The program is nearly 8 minutes long and produced in 2011. It features the following copyrighted bits of music:
    Nils Akland – Hertervig Skisse
    Popol Vuh – Through pain to heaven
    Bob Dylan - When the ships come in

    3) Joe Franklin - Left and Back

    My work currently focuses on negative space in sound The sonic underbelly of seemingly mundane situations and objects. These sounds are captured, magnified and sculpted using the medium of magnetic tape. Focusing heavily on the format of tape itself, its capabilities and the electronics involved, an alternate perspective is realised.

  • Anna Friz - How To Pack a Whale

    30th August 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 6:30 pm

    Synopsis: The diurnal anxiety of constant travel transforms dream logic into dream logistics. Vast apartments filled with mutated memories require urgent nighttime packing and transport via all means of motor, machine, or mammal. Absurd dimensional incompatibilities produce carry-on bags which contain whole items of furniture. A radiophonic meditation on the containment and escape of material stuff, moved by land sea and night air, embedded in complex, half-imagined wireless communication channels and signal relays.

    Bio:
    Anna Friz began broadcasting on campus/community radio CiTR Vancouver in 1993. Since then she has created audio art and radiophonic works for extensive international broadcast, installation, or performance in more than 25 countries, where radio is the source, subject, and medium of the work. Anna is Assistant Professor of Sound in the Film and Digital Media Department of University of California, Santa Cruz, a steering member of the artist collective Skálar | Sound Art | Experimental Music based in East Iceland, and a long time affiliate artist of Wave Farm (formerly free103point9) in Acra, New York.

  • Group Zero - Concrete Mirror

    30th August 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 7:00 pm

    Concrete Mirror is a thirty-minute acousmatic work that responds to the mechanisms of war. Designed as a radiophonic review of Peter Kennard’s recent retrospective at the Imperial War Museum and conceived in three chapters, the piece investigates the military’s role in the development of technology. The first chapter takes its inspiration from the acoustic mirrors built on the Kent coast during the interwar period, which were used to listen out for approaching enemy aircraft; the second chapter re-imagines drone warfare as a mechanised minuet in the sky; while the closing chapter reworks Kennard’s 2015 installation, The Noose Of Noughts, which is a sober relay of statistics that highlight the depth of governmental and corporate involvement in global conflict. The first chapter was originally broadcast by Resonance FM in the spring and the complete piece was released by The Imaginary Archive via Bandcamp in May 2016.

    Artist: Group Zero
    Title: Concrete Mirror
    Duration: 26m 53s
    Year: 2016
    Composer: Ilia Rogatchevski
    Voices: Ilia Rogatchevski and Laura Michelle Smith
    Genre: Radio Art / Sound Art

    Artist Bio

    Ilia Rogatchevski is a Russia-born multimedia artist, journalist and broadcaster living and working in London. Taking cues from insurrectionist modernists like Guy Debord, William S. Burroughs and George Maciunas his prolific output varies from painting and collage to sound installations and radio work. Appropriation and subversion play a key role in his practice. Phrases and images are culled from popular sources, detourned and disseminated back into the public sphere. Rogatchevski is currently undertaking an MA in Sound Art at the London College of Communication, where he is exploring, via the medium of VLF radio, the impact of electromagnetic pollution on our acoustic ecology.

  • Luke Fowler & Richard McMaster - Twilight of the Rock Gods

    30th August 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 7:30 pm

    The second collaborative work from artists Luke Fowler and Richard McMaster focuses on the London Rock Music scene of the late1970/early 80's and is accompanied by biographical reflections from a young East-Ender who has worked in the industry all his life and now finds himself unemployed . Fowler/McMaster's source material originates from two different reel to reel collections, which had been sold or discarded. The first is a collection of demo tapes dating from 1974-78 produced by a London major label presumably to tout new releases to radio DJ's. The music contained within the tapes highlights the spectrum of rock music being produced during the period; ranging from soft to prog rock, eventually giving way to disco and more electronic influences. This material is radically re-shaped by means of editing, looping and then feeding the loops through vintage hardware effects boxes. We wanted to use effects that were common in the studios at that time but were often used very conservatively by producers. In our methodology the effects are manipulated and 'played' as instruments in their own right.

    The second archive of tapes were from a research Lab found within a major London University. Drawing mostly from one interview tape- the narrative that unfolds are biographical reflections of a young East-End professional, who started out as a music writer and then in various other roles from A+R to management liaison. Over the course of the interview he demystifies the often glamourised image the music industry. His comments frame and create associative meanings with the accompanying treated rock tapes.

    At one point in the interview our narrator draws our attention to his stammer -alluding to the raison d'être for the interview. In fact the tape was selected from a larger collection of interviews with people who suffer from speech defects. During the course of the collage we also hear fragments of other research material cut in; including a woman reading elocution exercises and early speech synthesis experiments.

  • Dream. Like. Sound #01 - Isabelle Stragliati

    30th August 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

    Dream.Like.Sound is an experimental radio show series dealing with sound and radiophonic creation. It's a monthly sound reverie, a sound contemplation that goes with my research, on a chosen thematic… A work in progress, 10 episodes to un-learn doing radio shows. I broadcast sound works that inspire me, and readings (in french or english), together with my own sound work (sometimes created specifically for the show). Editing and mixing the show is fully part of the creation process. The series have been broadcast on the Radio Campus Angers, Grenoble, Orléans, Paris, Rouen, Tours, Radio U, Radio Grenouille, Campus FM (France), Radio Campus Bruxelles (Belgium), Radio ARA (Luxembourg), Radiophrenia (Scotland)...

    Dream.Like.Sound #01 : On The Road

    What do we hear on the road? Who do we meet on the road? What do we return of a journey? As sound? As souvenir? The sound as souvenir? The sound as the journey?
    Full tracklisting is available here:
    http://noearnosound.net/2014/11/26/dream-like-sound-01-on-the-road/

    BIO
    Coming from the visual arts, Isabelle Stragliati turned to the sound medium in 2002 through DJing, as an extension of her approach of the film editing (under the moniker Rescue). She then practiced numerous aspects of radio production (as radio host, producer, music programmer, technician and program director) before reconciling it with her creative work. Her productions, involving field recording, documentary, musique concrète or techno, have been broadcast on national radios (France Culture, Radio Campus France), in festivals and events in Europe (Longueur d’Ondes, Futura, Brouillage, Take You There in France, Radiophrenia in Scotland, CinemaInYourHead in Luxembourg), and in contemporary art centers (CNAC de Grenoble, La Criée à Rennes, Casino Luxembourg).


  • The Night Porters - Michael McLaren

    30th August 2016 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm

    “The Night Porters” is a radio play which would struggle to find mainstream airplay due to the explicit language. It was written by a friend of mine called Michael Moreland and produced, recorded and edited by myself. It was the first attempt I made at a radio adaptation. It is a horror comedy two character play about a night porter who is retiring and is handing over the reins to a young trainee in a hotel suspected of being haunted – it is a one act play. The music was written by me.

    My name is Michael McLaren and I have just completed my HND in Radio Production as a mature student at Fife College. I began as a Sound Production student but switched to radio when I realised how much more creative scope that medium potentially had. I am about to Begin Broadcast Media Production at Sunderland University in September after which I hope to go into documentary making or drama production – both for radio.

  • Matthew Byrd - Hatchling

    30th August 2016 @ 10:00 pm - 11:00 pm

    Hatchling - A broken and smeared melody from an Evil Egg. Necessitated by an experience with dissociatives and a power substation.

    My name is Matthew Byrd. I study music and literature with my time as a janitor in Indiana. I've grown up here as a musician in isolation, cast out by my mentors for being either dangerous or condescending, I have no context, and I think it spurs me. I've gotten out a bit and Francisco Lopez and La Monte Young have spurred me to be heard. I'm researching (nosing around) a nanotechnology center and wondering if it's an opera I'm making.


  • Beespace - Ranjit Bhatnagar

    30th August 2016 @ 11:00 pm - 7:00 am

    This is a document of one day in the life in a beehive in Durham, NC. Sound artist Ranjit Bhatnagar used light, touch, and environmental sensors to document activity in the hive, and used the data to create a generative soundscape. Pollinator Synthesizer was exhibited live at Moogfest 2016 in Durham.

    Made with support from Burt's Bees, Bee Downtown, and Moogfest.

    Ranjit Bhatnagar is a sound artist who works with technology, language, and found materials to create interactive installations and musical instruments. His works have been exhibited across the United States and Europe. In his annual Instrument­-a-­Day project, now in its ninth year, he creates a new homemade musical instrument each day of the month in February.
    Ranjit recently worked with the art collectives Flux Factory and Rabid Hands to build a large-­scale musical installation at Palais de Tokyo in Paris. His interactive sound work, Singing Room for a Shy Person, commissioned by Amsterdam’s Métamatic Research Initiative, premiered at NYC’s Clocktower Gallery in 2013; and later moved to Museum Tinguely in Basel for the Métamatic Reloaded exhibition, and was shown at the Stadsschouwburg Amsterdam.

    In 2013, he launched his speech/­music instrument, Speak ­and ­Play, with Margaret Leng Tan at the UnCaged Toy Piano Festival; presented work at Qubit's Machine Music Festival; and premiered a calligraphy­ and ­gesture ­based score for the Brooklyn Ballet with calligrapher David Chang. His sculpture Stone Song for the Caramoor Centre's Sound Arts Festival was installed at the Neuberger Museum at Purchase College, New York and in 2015 became a part of Caramoor's permanent collection.

  • Sian Gledhill - Southwark Park

    31st August 2016 @ 7:00 am - 7:30 am

    All over the city there are places, and journeys, that encapsulate the rhythms of everyday life. Southwark Park brings together an ambiguous static shot of a path through London’s Southwark Park and the contemplative audio of contributors observing and describing the same, filmed footage of the transient pathway.A slow meditation on an image, the work does not exist until sound and image come together, inferring new narratives and associations around the ‘thought’.

    For Radiophrenia, I have adapted the work to make an alternative sound piece, allowing the observations of the contributors to paint an oral landscape of a scene that only they are witness to.

    Biography

    My work is closely connected with place and history, uniquely engaging with familiar and perhaps forgotten landmarks and social histories. Revelling in my on-going curiosity with ephemera and nostalgia, I procure anonymous and intriguing archives sourced from Ebay and ephemera fairs. I use these to stage a re-encountering of the familiar. Through performance and film I conduct playful interventions, opening up new dialogues with a place and its history.

    I am interested in the way we use speech to communicate; the distinctions between the read and the spoken, the formal and informal, the rehearsed and the spontaneous.


  • Found Sound Answering Machines - Episode 1 - John Morin

    31st August 2016 @ 7:30 am - 8:00 am

    Found Sound Answering Machines is a series of analog recordings gathered from answering machine tapes found at thrift stores, estate sales and junk piles. In the rush to embrace new technology, we frequently discard the old outdated models just as fast without considering what personal memories and left-behind, intimate moments they might contain.

    Radio Eyes is an active listening project by California-based sound artist John Morin that seeks to explore the potentiality of personal sonic space and offers new ways of seeing and hearing the world around us. The work reminds us that if seeing is believing, than what we hear can be unbelievable.

    2. Hilary Mullaney - Grey

    Grey is a sound work which explores an urban landscape in Dublin city, Ireland. The sounds used were recorded while taking two different sound walks, in the same environment, at different times on the same day. This work is a sonic landscape of various contrasts, capturing the sounds of nature, the city and its inhabitants, side by side. A female voice give us the context of this place, and the sounds reveal the rest.
    *Thanks to http://www.takingaleaf.com for sharing this place with me.

Her compositions have been broadcast and performed at numerous festivals and concert events worldwide.

    3. devilsclub - thEE 5 hoarsemen ride pushme-pullewes

    "thEE 5 hoarsemen ride pushme-pullewes" is a minimalist, abstract piece made with a handful of electronic instruments. This piece is part of a stream of pieces made in the evenings in an effort to "feel better" about the world I live in right now by making it fun. This piece reminds me of political types running on as they ride two headed beasts heading in two directions simultaneously. It is easy to become hoarse while doing such things as you banter on aimlessly to the passersby about your politics.

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

    4. Pytchblend - After J. F. Sebastian

    December 2019 at JF's apartment in the Bradbury. RIP.

    Hearing a click of a key at the door
    my heartbeat's steps stop.
    The shadows in and out of each other
    chunner to themselves.
    Unsure, I wait in mourning.

    From the ‘Sweat’ album: Sketches from the biomechanical heart of England's bleak, industrial North West. Come with me now to the subconscious borderlands of sleep and wakefulness. Explore the sensory phantasmata of hypnagogic dreamlets. Feel static-like frisson sensations tingling down your spine. Join me on the journey into the heart of etherCore

    5. The Renovation Generation - Dan Ni

    A series of sonic portraits from Vietnam meeting the young minds re-imagining their country’s future. Travel to the other side of the world to learn about the young artists who are re-defining their country, in unprecedented times of peaceful prosperity. These Vietnamese are living lives that were merely a dream thirty years previously.

    Growing up in a one-party Communist state, we hear the Renovation Generations’ personal narratives: about love, boundaries, parents, and freedom, yet part of a universal discourse, in the dawn of the digital revolution and increasing globalization. Weaving together on-location interviews with sound design inspired by the city and current musical landscape, these portraits transport the listener to one of the fastest-growing cities in South East Asia.

    Bio: The Renovation Generation is a collaboration between radio producers Eliza Lomas and Fabiola Buchele, who were trained in the UK but have been living in Hanoi for over three years, and local Hanoians' and researchers Trang Ngo, Maia Ngo and Trang Nghiem.

    7. Baofeng - 446.00625

    446.00625 is a recording of 4 Baofeng Walkie Talkies, broadcasting the resonances within a space to a publicly available frequency.

    Bio: Baofeng is an experimental sound project founded in 2015 by artists Alexander Withey (CH) and Jan Simon Weins (GER) using standard PMR Walkie Talkies. The project originated from a shared interest in the possibilities of using simple, transparent tools for transporting sound, time and space to the public realm. By interfering with public radio traffic and manipulating an expected mode of communication, Baofeng is not bound to any spatial boundaries, but rather opens up the possibility for unforeseeable encounters outside a gallery context. Currently we are experimenting with different platforms to document these activities.

    8. Nick Smith - Sounds Asleep

    I spent a few days recording myself at night while I slept. People have told me I make a lot of noise at night, and I was interested in hearing it for myself. In addition to my murmurs and grunts, the sounds around me and outside my window caught my attention. There were far away hums and howls, and closer, quieter, ruffles and scurries from the wind or from animals outside. Sleep is a time we are supposed to turn inwards, to our dreams. But our sleeping bodies are still there, along with the sounds that we are sleeping with.

    Bio: I am an MA student at the University of Victoria in BC, Canada. My area of interest is cultural Anthropology with a focus in sonic anthropology. I enjoy experimenting with sound through music, podcast, and soundscape design. I am especially interested in how sound can be integrated into teaching pedagogies in higher education.


  • John Hopkins - Water Fills the Hall

    31st August 2016 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

    'water fills the hall' is a sustained drift -- including the essences of several
    hundred field recordings from four continents -- through the personal
    hopkins/neoscenes archive of field recordings relating to water. The work is
    intended partly as a complex exploration of and meditation on water itself.
    Water in motion energetically yields sound; and thus, the work is about moving
    waters. Humans seek to direct those movements to their advantage with (lovingly
    graceful!) machinic systems, and in that lies a fundamental conflict. This is a
    mapping of that conflict: how the human species alters the flows of energy in
    the bio-system around itself.

    Bio:

    Dr. Hopkins is an international media artist and learning facilitator. He holds
    a creative practices PhD in media studies; an MFA from CU-Boulder (where he
    studied film under renown experimental film-maker, Stan Brakhage); and a BSc in
    geophysical engineering. His trans-disciplinary research and workshops explore
    issues surrounding sustainable creative systems, distributed and community-based

  • Remote Series 3 - Jana Winderen - Eye to the Sea

    31st August 2016 @ 10:00 am - 10:30 am

    Jana Winderen (Norway): Eye to the Sea

    Artist Jana Winderen specializes in recordings with hydrophones underwater and recordings of ultrasound. She has travelled to warm and cold climates around the planet, listening and recording underwater environments: from Greenland to the Caribbean, to rivers in Thailand, France and Russia. Hydrophones work in the same ways as contact microphones: they need to be in direct contact with the material the vibration and sound waves are resonating—in this case, the water. For Eye to the Sea, Jana made recordings from inside 10,000-year-old ice in Greenland, of one-year-old ice in Iceland, and of shallow waters where the icy surface melts and drifts into waves. Immediately beneath the surface you can hear underwater insects, crustaceans, snapping shrimps and fish eating shells. A little deeper you can hear cod and toadfish. Cod make sound with six drum muscles on their swim bladder that grow when they are in mating season. One hypothesis is that the female cod choses her partner according to the sound he makes and not his size. The toadfish is almost invisible, but very audible, as it sits and protects its habitat on the reef among visually stunning coral fish. Jana hopes to evoke curiosity, humility and respect, and also to try to establish a closer relationship to the underwater world, our largest habitat on the planet, which is so near to us, right under the surface.

    Bio: Jana Winderen is an artist educated in Fine Art at Goldsmiths College in London, and with a background in mathematics, chemistry and fish ecology from the University in Oslo. Jana was recently an artist-in-residence at the TBA21 Academy and releases her audio-visual works on Touch. In 2011 she won the Golden Nica, Ars Electronica, for Digital Musics & Sound Art.

    Skálar FM presents The remote series

    In 2014-2015, Skálar FM, a project of Skálar | Sound Art | Experimental Music was
    commissioned by the Creative Audio Unit of Radio National, Australia's national public broadcaster, to create a 5-part radio art series for their program Soundproof. The remote series consists of four programmes created by internationally acclaimed artists working with sound and curated by Anna Friz and Konrad Korabiewski. Each was asked to consider an aspect of the idea of 'remoteness', or the experience of distance.

    As Skálar originates in the small town of Seyðisfjörður on the north east coast of Iceland just below the Arctic circle, 'remoteness' most obviously describes the experience of existing outside of the geographical and cultural centers of power, or by a feeling of having journeyed far away from populous areas across rough seas and rugged, far-flung landscape to reach a so-called end of the earth. More fundamentally, the defining feature of remoteness is the experience of distance, however minute or vast, in time or in space.

    About Skálar:

    Skálar | Sound Art | Experimental Music is an artist-run organization established in 2012 investigating new methods for sound art and experimental music practices. Based in eastern Iceland, it takes the name ‘Skálar’ in honour of the Icelandic pioneer of electronic music Magnús Blöndal Jóhannsson. Skálar acts as both an artist collective and a mobile curatorial platform, and produces an itinerant ( Skálar Sound Art) festival, international exchanges, and limited edition releases of audio and audio-visual works. Curatorially, Skálar's focus is on creating site-speci fic sonic-based interactions with landscapes, both geographical or built. Skálar is particularly interested to generate and support artistic practices which highlight unstable systems, open spaces to new interpretations and use, and which engage in perceptual feedback and affect between site and subject. The organization's activities also include radio with Skálar FM, which promotes both micro-radio and transmission art works as well as interventions into the broadcast domain through commissions and curation developed in concert with various national public radio and independent radio stations.

    BIO

    Anne, (b.1985) is currently living in Brussels. After her studies at l’IHECS (apply communication) she started working as production assistant for the Belgian National Radio show Par Ouï- Dire (La Première - RTBF), building up first hand experience in sound design and exploring related styles as well (field recording, sound art, radio art, radio drama, performance, experimental music). During the years she has worked for several other sound-related projects, Sounds of écodays (eco-festival at Flagey), Monophonic (Festival international de création radiophonique), the radio shows Moniek to name a few. She co-created Karaonomatopiek, a participative sound performance, performed in the Cinéma Galeries à Bruxelles and at Centre Pompidou (BPI) à Paris (2015). Today she is continuing to work at her own creations, where the use of voice is very often chosen as to start from a more intimate point before opening up to a larger frame. Her work has been diffused in Belgium (La Première, Musiq3, Radio Panik, Radio Campus,...), as well as in Europe and beyond (réseau radia.fm, Nova Rté Lyrics), ou lors d’évènements : Kinokophone (New-York), Süden Radio (Berlin / Radio Papesse), Flagey, Centre Culturel Le Brass (Bruxelles), Grand Prix Nova (Roumanie).

    Currently she is exploring the relation between Danse & Sounds, ways of co-construction, following a research program with Choreographers (Prototype - Royaumont - France)


  • Giuseppe Mistretta - Please Touch

    31st August 2016 @ 11:00 am - 11:30 am

    For Radiophrenia Giuseppe Mistretta will read a number of short texts that form part of a body of work entitled Please Touch.

    The texts for Please Touch stem from personal experiences of ones own awareness of how they engage sensorially with objects, spaces and other people. The texts attempt to objectify normal interaction, to decipher the complicated series of processes that are involved from having a thought to carrying out an action and what happens when that action is realized. At times the texts are written at a point of alienation, in order to see better the complexity and cross over of senses, emotions and thoughts. At others a device has been utilised in order to inhibit the writers senses to give a limited yet enhanced version of their reality.

    Giuseppe Mistretta is an artist and writer based in Glasgow. His practice is concerned with the senses and empathy. This pursuit evolves by working and learning with others or being aware of other perspectives when working alone. Recent projects include Gold Panning, Market Gallery, Glasgow; Dancehall 11, Castlefield Gallery, Manchester; Finite Project Altered When Open, David Dale Gallery, Glasgow; Ear Defenders, Glasgow Project Room; Happy Hypocrite Issue 7, (edited by Isla Leaver-Yap); Dance like nobody’s watching or Dance like you’re not dancing, Rhubaba Gallery & Studios, Edinburgh; Gnommero-Multiplicity, (edited by Sarah Tripp and Richard Taylor).

  • Stuart Gurden - Arena on Energy on Tape

    31st August 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm

    Part of my continuing exploration of a ‘distended’ abstraction rooted in everyday activities, Arena On Energy On Tape is a drifting, layered composition woven from field recordings, appropriated and altered sounds, discrete performance, and time stolen back from work.
    Referencing a found motivational tape, and the BBC2 arts strand (and it’s Eno title music, appropriated previously in my 2003 video Arena) the piece is a soup of binaural immediacy, approximate noise, elusive periodicy, and mangled guitar and natural forces, all filtered through saturated tape loops, and a cannibalised Leslie cabinet.

    Biography

    I’m an artist working primarily with sound and video, and I'm drawn to the tensions between creativity, technological evolution, and the processes of cultural recuperation.
    I graduated from Glasgow School of Art’s MFA in 2000, and have exhibited across the UK and abroad, receiving various awards including the Scottish Arts Council Film & Video Award. I was short-listed for the 2012 Margaret Tait Artist’s Film Award.

    Recent exhibitions and involvements include:
    Recipe for Feedback (not Krakatoa), Creative Lab, CCA, Glasgow; Green Screen, Embassy Gallery, Edinburgh; The Interzone, Mackintosh Gallery, Glasgow School of Art; Three Points of Contact Residency (York St John University/GSA/Newlyn Gallery, Penzance); Early Reflections with Reverse Gate, Transmission Gallery, Glasgow (solo); LUX Moving Image Festival, Tramway; Running Time: Artists Films in Scotland 1960 to Now, Dean Gallery, Edinburgh
    An artist’s book The Creative Ordeal was published by Transmission Gallery in 2013

  • Florian Roderburg - Guitar Piece

    31st August 2016 @ 12:45 pm - 1:00 pm

    “Guitar Piece” - Florian Roderburg (a.k.a. Hoirkman Szeßht)

    After working exclusively with the computer for four years, for this piece I returned to my 'native' instrument which I have played since I was young. Even though the track has a somewhat simpleminded title, it is however intentionally misleading: The sounds I created (note: only an electric guitar and a few effect pedals were used, no post-production, manipulation or overdubs added) mostly sound like anything but a guitar. Repetitive structures, delay and feedback create a somewhat rhythmical path that might be influenced equally by Steve Reich, King Crimson, Sonic Youth, and Keiji Haino.

    Bio: Having played in a number of different bands since my teen years, I earned a Master of Arts in Musicology at the University of Music in Cologne. During my studies abroad at Australian National University in Canberra I studied with composers Larry Sitsky and Jim Cotter, the latter introducing me to the wide area of electronic music and noise. Having returned to Germany, another side of my creative energy had evolved; by now I do not only write songs on the guitar, but I also produce Elektronische Musik and play improvised concerts. I am currently studying at the University of Wuppertal to receive a teaching degree.

    Bio: Jeff Kolar is a sound artist, radio producer, and curator. He is the Founder and Artistic Director of Radius, an experimental radio broadcast platform established in 2010. His work, which has been described as “speaker-shredding” (Half Letter Press), “wonderfully strange” (John Corbett), and “characteristically curious” (Marc Weidenbaum), activates sound in unconventional, temporary, and ephemeral ways using appropriation and remix as a critical practice. His solo and collaborative projects, installations, and public performances often investigate the mundane sonic nuances of everyday electronic devices.

    2. JP Renoult – Luc Ferrari

    Minutes de Silence. La voix sans paroles. 2009. par Jean-Philippe Renoult
    The series " Minute of silence ... " created by Jean-Philippe Renoult between 2009 and 2012 , will seek between words. Instead of reproducing about artists, recompose it in the universe from the " er ", " Hmmm ," mouth noises and other hesitations that usually infect the text. This minute is a partition without verb that suggests beyond the words of their authors.

    Winter 2009, fifteen episodes of minutes of silence, open and close daily Antenna Resonance FM , London. They include: Charlemagne Palestine , Christian Marclay , Coldcut , Gavin Bryars , George Clinton, Luc Ferrari, Martin Tetreault , Matthew Herbert , Melvin Van Peebles, Otomo Yoshiide , The Residents , Pierre Henry …All the material I use is taken from my own interviews archives, with the exception of one : the magic interview with Albert Ayler, directed by my radio mentor and friend Daniel Caux in 1970 in St Paul de Vence.

    6. Kyle Stewart - Bloom (2015)

    Bloom is an electroacoustic piece created from experimentation with convolved sound materials, granular synthesis and micromontage composition. The title not only refers to the horizontal and vertical growth of these materials throughout the piece, but also to the way in which the sonic identities of these materials develop during their spectral and spatial trajectories. This piece creates a surreal listening environment by considering the contrast between the real and the unreal; between recognisable instrumental sounds and ambiguous, processed sounds.

    Bio: Kyle Stewart is a sound and audiovisual composer based in Glasgow, Scotland. He is a graduate of the University of Glasgow, where he studied sonic arts and music.

    Under a creaky train bridge and above a frozen stream in the depths of a Winnipeg winter, Swolowes occasionally intervenes within a subtle yet rich sonic bed created by a transitional landscape that eludes definition.

    Cam Scott and Kelsey Braun form Winnipeg duo Swolowes, who conduct improvised soundscapes hewn from breath and static, drawing upon the history of wireless transmission and amplification as well as the body as an instrument of conduction.


  • Hoagy Houghton - Radio Photographs

    31st August 2016 @ 2:30 pm - 3:00 pm

    ‘Radio Photographs?’
    Using the medium of radio, artist Hoagy Houghton attempts to broadcast his photographs over the airwaves. This takes the form of impressions, interpretations and gut reactions from 4 writers, Karin Bähler Lavér, Dominic Jaeckle, Jolyon Houghton and Jon Auman, as they each interpret the task of describing one of these images. Hoagy’s interest lies in their observations; in seeing how a photograph can translate into words and sound, and how the listener may interpret that.

    BIOGRAPHY
    Hoagy Houghton is a London based artist interested in how poetry is perceived by the senses. He uses a multitude of media, including photography, with the fascination of capturing the parallel between reality and imagination; and the poetry that exists
    in this space.

    Karin Bähler Lavér works toward the communication of alternative perspectives on policy and social issues in both art and political forums. Often working in unison with others, she aims to explore and convey potential methodologies in ways which give clearly tangible forms to these complex issues.

    Dominic Jaeckle is a writer living in London. He writes about reading. Dominic is a co-founder of Hotel Magazine.

    Jolyon Houghton is an actor and writer who studied at Central School of Speech and Drama. His writing is a mixture of humour and misfortune, in the form of plays, poems and short stories.

    Jon Auman is a writer and contributing editor at Hotel Magazine.

  • Carrie Skinner - Victor, is there anyone there?

    31st August 2016 @ 3:30 pm - 3:45 pm

    Carrie Skinner
    ‘Victor, is there anyone there?’

    The Australian radio production of ‘Frankenstein’ starring George Edwards in many of the roles was originally broadcast in thirteen parts on ‘2GB Radio’ Sydney in 1931. An unfaithful appropriation of Mary Shelley’s novel, the serial will be exhumed and rebroadcast over thirteen days. Listeners are invited to visit Creative Lab at the CCA at 3pm, 29th Aug -11th Sep (except 3rd Sep).

    Some-where/some-when an actor, their costume, a script and a prop. Someone is trying to get through to you. From the darkness of an imagined/invisible performance space, emerges the body of a voice. Hello? Who’s calling? A polymorphic interpolator talking over the radio, reaching over out of one blind space into another. Victor, is there anyone there?

    Biography:

    Carrie Skinner is a visual artist and undergraduate of the Glasgow School of Art, she completed an MLitt in Theatre Practices at Glasgow University in 2015. Her practice instinctively foregrounds thematic, structural and aesthetic devices emanating from a long standing engagement with the epic narratives of Gothic literature.

    Soundscape/Interference
    Improvisatory band PEARL present location recordings taken around east Belfast, with instrumental response. For the performance audience members were encouraged to manipulate the soundscapes, and were given three mp3 players and FM broadcasters with which they could play and pause urban, industrial and natural sounds whilst moving around the venue, sending their broadcasts between different performers’ radios. The performance took place at Framewerk gallery as part of the East Side Arts Festival.

    Richard Bailie is a composer and sound artist. Recent instrumental work utilises auditory beating and the sympathetic vibration of strings, while recent electronic work has explored the use of radio feedback and recordings of ambient sound.

    Liam McCartan is an electroacoustic composer, half of the techno outfit Sohmm, and frontman and songwriter of experimental folk band Wolf Like Me.

    Carl Small is a freelance audio engineer, producer and musician. Associated acts include MOSA, Aislinn Logan and Wolf Like Me.


  • Lucinda Guy & Sarah Grey - Casting

    31st August 2016 @ 4:30 pm - 5:00 pm

    In a workshop at Radio V&A, February 2016, Lucinda Guy and Sarah Gray asked people to focus on an important message for the world, whilst recording themselves speaking a randomly created text. These texts have been mixed with sine waves, selected to generate change in materials and ideas. Casting connects radio broadcasting to the casting of spells. Listening to this piece may have surprising consequences.

    This 30 minute version of Casting is one of many possible mixes of these magical texts and sounds.

    Bio: Lucinda Guy is co-founder and artistic director of community station Soundart Radio in South Devon, UK. She opens up spaces in radio to allow new connections to happen, and has trained and mentored hundreds of people to find their radio voice. Her radio compositions are unscripted, and incorporate hymns, folksongs, metaphysical concepts, found texts and half remembered dreams.

  • Roy Mohan Shearer - Caravan

    31st August 2016 @ 6:45 pm - 7:00 pm

    Last winter, I escaped Glasgow for India, where half my family live. Instead of taking a camera, I took a field recorder. This is a collage of sounds recorded during those 2 months, from lunchtime conversation with my great aunt Pam, to the crack of ice underfoot in the Zanskar valley, and noisy journeys and an enormous wedding in between.

    I am a designer, maker and musician based in Glasgow. In my musical work, I perform, improvise and record on drums and percussion. I have worked with Jonnie Common, Inspector Tapehead, Ultras, The One Ensemble and dBass. In my design work I provide technical assistanceto artists and designers: I build devices and prototypes, assist with
    development and fabrication and generally tinker around.

  • Live-to-Air - Steve Urqhuart & Alan Bryden: Transformation:01

    31st August 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm
    CCA Cinema

    From prisoners and farmers, to graffiti artists and burlesque queens: a twenty year archive of radio interviews and location recordings is chopped up and recontextualised – LIVE on Radiophrenia.

    Hear clips and outtakes from old documentaries being processed, looped, morphed, stretched, added to, multiplied and minimalized, in this almost entirely improvised composition. What will happen to these voices and noises, when they’re snatched out of their familiar sound worlds and bundled into a bank of analog synth modules and FX units? Expect things to become noisy, quiet, sparse, rhythmic, cacophonous, emotive, angry, frightening, funny… and ever expanding…

    Biography

    Alan Bryden is a community music workshop leader and sound designer, who works with marginalised groups. As ‘Sidewinder’ he produced a series of cut up/sample based records for Glasgow's Soma Records.

    Steve Urquhart is a radio producer and sound designer who specialises in documenting the lives and experiences of under-represented communities and individuals.

    They met in the 1990s, as producers for Glasgow student stations Sweet FM and SubCity Radio. In 2001 they recorded and performed as Light Sleepers for Fenetik Music. Transformation:01 is their first major collaboration for several years.

  • Darren McClure - Primary Locations

    31st August 2016 @ 9:30 pm - 10:00 pm

    Originally released as a 45 minute album, consisting of three tracks. This is an edited version, all three tracks mixed into a 30 minute piece for radio. The concept behind the recordings began with an investigation into the relationship between sound and light. Specifically, the conversion of the colour centre wavelengths along the visible light spectrum into audio frequencies.

    Location recordings at areas containing primary colours were made and woven into the compositions to create site-specific soundscapes. Each piece unfolds slowly, and is sonic snapshot of three primary locations, their ambience and the sound of their colours.

    Darren McClure is a sound artist living in Matsumoto, Japan. His work focuses on texture, space and atmosphere. Sound sources are both analogue and digital, hardware and software, incorporating found sounds and field recordings to lend an organic, tactile quality to the pieces. His main intent is to create sound to both zone out to and zone into, a balance of widescreen drones and more minimal, abstract ambience.

    He has released solo and collaborative work on a number of labels, across various formats. His music has also been used in conjunction with video work, gallery exhibitions and documentary shorts.

    The song refers to the flare unleashed by the heart-shaped sunspot (sun's active region 2529 (AR 2529)) on April, 17th 2016. It is part of a growing experimental series of artworks created in a very short amount of time to explore spontaneous creative energy. The creative process is one of radical extemporisation and raw one-shot recordings.

    Bio: French polymathic outsider artist and poet of Polish origins born in 1982. Lives and works in the middle of the woods, in the mountains of East of France. Digging into the mine of existentialism, chtonian mysteries, the uncanny and the unseen, the focus is on the exploration of the inner arena, emotional and psychological self-discovery. Das-Lichtquant has been created to explore the sound world, add a new experimental layer to the already existing ecosystem.

    2. Vladimir Kryuchev - From A to B

    An audio piece about tiny elusive moments that change the course of events, done by the means of field recordings. It is based on two scenes – a swimming pool dive, and a mic stand adjustment at a concert, with an emphasis on pauses, a 'mighty nothings' in both cases. Field recordings and narration were done in Sergiyev Posad, Russia. Most of the audio material is preserved in its raw state, except for the sounds manipulated in order to accentuate those pauses. This piece was initially made for Radiophrenia.

    Bio: Vladimir Kryuchev, b. 1978, Sergiyev Posad, Russia. I'm a field-recordist, print journalist, and radio listener. I work full-time for the local Vperyod newspaper, and as a hobby I record sounds and post them on my website oontz.ru. I started doing narrated audio features lately, my best achievement so far is the 2nd place in 2016 Prix Marulić radio drama festival in Croatia.’

    A series of sonic portraits from Vietnam meeting the young minds re-imagining their country’s future. Travel to the other side of the world to learn about the young artists who are re-defining their country, in unprecedented times of peaceful prosperity. These Vietnamese are living lives that were merely a dream thirty years previously.

    Growing up in a one-party Communist state, we hear the Renovation Generations’ personal narratives: about love, boundaries, parents, and freedom, yet part of a universal discourse, in the dawn of the digital revolution and increasing globalization. Weaving together on-location interviews with sound design inspired by the city and current musical landscape, these portraits transport the listener to one of the fastest-growing cities in South East Asia.

    Bio: The Renovation Generation is a collaboration between radio producers Eliza Lomas and Fabiola Buchele, who were trained in the UK but have been living in Hanoi for over three years, and local Hanoians' and researchers Trang Ngo, Maia Ngo and Trang Nghiem.

    “Cod++(e, a).choose” (Pronounced Code/Coda) consists of 5315 miniatures for a disklavier, electronically-generated sounds, ready-made audio samples and a text-to-speach application developed especially for this piece. The musical piece is rooted in Eran Hadas’ poetry book “Code”. This book was written by a code designed to uncover all the Haiku poems, hidden in The Torah.

    The musical piece echoes the book, where each miniature follows the meter of Haiku poems, each having the precise same length, adding up to a 372 minutes long music box. For more info: http://www.misscomposed.com/codea-choose/

    Bio: Dganit Elyakim is a composer and sound-artist. Her music depicts various aspects of the human and digital paradigm. Through MIDI protocols and algorithmically based behaviours of the computer-performer she confronts the human musician with a digital based reality. Elyakim was awarded the Israeli Prime Minister’s Prize in 2011 in composition, the America-Israel-Cultural-Foundation scholarship and others. Her music was featured at events and venues such as Gaudeamus Festival (Amsterdam), Ars Electronica (Linz), Tel Aviv Museum of Arts, Rebecca Crown Hall (Jerusalem).

    What would it feel like to emerge from the ice after 350,000 years of dormancy? As the pack ice in the Arctic melts ancient microbes are re-emerging into the ecosystem.
    This piece explores ideas of genetic and experiential memory, evolution, climate change and future imaginings shifting the point of view from human centric to microbial.

    Bio: Rebecca Glover works with installation, sound, video, sculpture and painting. Based in London she has founded two curatorial projects, Bread and Jam and Please Stand By. She is a visiting lecturer at Central Saint Martins and The Art Academy. She studied for BA at Edinburgh College of Art 2009 and with Alt MFA 2013-15.

    8. Nad Spiro – Sparky 5 “SIRIUS RADIO FREQUENCIES”

    Last year I worked in the Cork ’s Harbour area as artist in residence at
    Sirius Arts Center, Cobh co. Cork (Ireland). My project was about the harbour as a setting for acoustic transit : I developed some sound fictions that included transmission codes, navigation narratives, signal stations, radar tones, Marconi’s experiments, sirens,
    Titanic messages... These music pieces were later performed live at the “Sounds from a Safe Harbour” festival (Cork, Sept. 2015). During my stay at Sirius I created some “radio frequencies” of my own with electronic instruments in order to include them in the final pieces. The tracks I submit to Radiophrenia are de original, isolated “Sirius Radio
    Frequencies” that I created there. What better medium than a radio broadcast to disseminate them ?

    Bio: Basque born guitarist Rosa Arruti has been working since 2000 under the
    anonymous alias Nad Spiro, her solo venture that sets out to build a world of electronic textures and sound fictions from a complex processed guitar set-up. She has played also with some of Barcelona’s most cutting edge bands and kept international collaborations with the likes of My Cat Is An Alien, Kim Cascone, The Asterism and MK Ibáñez. Her records have been released by the pioneering Spanish experimental label Geometrik.

    1st September 2016 @ 12:00 am - 1:00 am

    The Chants Beneath Project features a total of 120 newly commissioned sonic works from the world's most exciting sound artists. Each piece makes use of, or responds to, a unique cassette-tape loop created by artist Jeremy Young.
    http://chantsbeneath.net

    Episode three: Raw If Cloaked
    New work by Machinefabriek, Yann Novak, Alfredo Costa Monteiro, Tom Carter, Steve Bates, Günter Schilenz, Thomas Tilly, Brian Lavelle and Drew Barnet.

    Jeremy Young is an artist and entrepreneurial strategist working predominantly within the flexible borders of sound media. His creative work includes compositions for recording and live performance, reel-to-reel tape collage, sound-poetry and audio-visual scoring. His main interests as a performer lie in the analog treatment of surface-based audio (piezo mic'd objects and surfaces, manipulating tape and tone via texture and voltage), as he is not concerned with what one hears but how it is heard and through what lens. He has performed and released material throughout Europe, Asia, the US, UK and Canada. In 2014, he was awarded a Media Artists' Assistance Grant by Wave Farm (NYSCA) to create 125 unique artist edition double-sided loop pieces towards developing sustainable audience engagement with the sonic arts, housing all the loops online in a freely streamable living archive and commissioning over 120 sound artists to create new work using each singular piece. Visit the project here to view the list of participating artists.

    Young's main sonic project is a collaborative trio with Ian Temple and Jesse Perlstein called Sontag Shogun that makes use of analog sound treatments and nostalgic solo piano compositions in harmony to depict abstract places in our memory. However, Young recently released his debut duo album with cellist/multi-instrumentalist Aaron Martin entitled, A Pulse Passes from Hand to Hand on Chihei Hatakeyama's label White Paddy Mountain. He also performs in a trio with pianist Shinya Sugimoto and 16mm projectionist Joel Schlemowitz as well in a post-Celtic folk duo with Daniel Merrill called Foxout!. Young has shared the stage with notable artists such as Hauschka, Julia Kent, Aki Onda, Matana Roberts, Jason Lescalleet, Aaron Martin, Dead Rat Orchestra, Barn Owl, Sam Shalabi, Alexander Turnquist, Tom Carter, Noveller, Ben Vida & Koen Holtkamp among many others.

    *Young has been invited to Geneva by the Musée d'Éthnographie to co-curate and conduct a residency series in 2016 exploring the collection of ethnomusicological recordings in the Museum's Phonothèque archive.

    Ode to Algorithm - Before the 20th century everything lived inside a painting in the next century everything will live inside the screen. We must solicit the move otherwise we will never freely walk into the screen we will have always been pushed or dropped from above and the cracks of impact will be relentlessly visible for the rest of eternity.
    Perception is habitual and automatic, it negates the sublime PUNK IS DADA and Vonverhille hack the arts to suspend our perception. They toy with our image ecology leaving us somewhere between the life and the living. They are deeply unpersonal therefore they are personal to all they let the viewer ponder subject, object, sound or animal - Life trapped inside motionless matter they are the future.
    At times like these we recognize the body or the shell after its been molded and manipulated through diets, surgery, saline solution body modifications such as bagel heads or synthol freaks but the norm is much stranger babies been born from frozen eggs and organs grown for commodities. Life is not what it seems my dear…. The art as object is priceless waste.
    Sleep is the only thing capitalism can’t tap into so lets dream.

    Bio; PUNK IS DADA Lives and works in Berlin.
    She studied at The Glasgow School of Art in 2008 and went on to attend the European Graduate School Summer Institute in 2015/16.

    Champagne Murders. Eight channel audio piece. Original music by Clear Phantom and Stamina Nudes. Voice acting by Georgia Boukla, John Mylotte, Bad News, Keith Senior, David Steans, Hazel Steans, Jennifer Steans and Bryan Smith. Champagne Murders is a collection of eight spoken word pieces written, recorded and produced by myself. Each short fiction deals anecdotally with some dubious 'murder'. Whilst conceived and previously presented as a suite, each Murder functions as a self-contained piece, and so could be presented individually if appropriate.

    Bio: David Steans (born 1984, Stockport) is an artist and writer currently based in Leeds, England. Since 2015 he has worked as a Lecturer on the BA Fine Art programme at Leeds College of Art. Recent exhibitions, projects and screenings include: The Kippenberger Challenge at De Appel Institut Library, Amsterdam (2016); Mega Armageddon Death - Long Version at ArtRotterdam Intersections, Netherlands (2016); Mood Board at À CÔTÉ DU 69, Nantes, France; Display Show at Eastside Projects, Birmingham (2015); I'MTen at IMT Gallery, London and Medieval helpdesk at Leeds International Medieval Congress (2015). His writing was included in Cadavere Quotidiano (2014), an anthology of writing by contemporary artists published by Project X Foundation for Art & Criticism.

    “I tell stories and invent histories, as well as subvert existing ones. I work across writing, sound, moving image, performance and installation. I am influenced by horror, as well as documentary modes, adapting and appropriating them in order to complicate familiar representations. Recent work has centred around the spoken word, including for example the rapped and sung delivery of fictive texts that unpick their own ‘telling’ through wordplay, repetition, ‘corpsing’ and vocal effects.” David Steans 2016

    3. Kathleen Messer - ROBOTWASP

    'ROBOTWASP' is a short acoustmatic composition, created from a small amount of similar sounds, using Pro Tools as well as a selection of GRM plugins. The main focus lies within the abstract of 'Organic Vs Machine'.
    'ROBOTWASP' develops from an initial 'robotic' state – the sounds are electronic, mechanized and sustained. Over the course of the piece the soundscape morphs into an aesthetic that is more organic, living and gestural.
    The shuffling gestural sounds towards the end are reminiscent of a dense volume of fluttering wings. The initial and end material create a contrast in terms of 'musical material' while there is coherence in the similar original sounds from the wind up toys.

    Bio: Since graduating with a BMus Hons from the University of Glasgow, I am involved in a range of projects involving performing, composing, leading workshops & promoting.
    I enjoy working with the following mediums; Algorithmic Composition (using Grid Matrixes), Minimalism, Soundscapes, Tala (Indian Rhythmic Patterns), Avant Garde Music, Experimental Music, Musique Concrete, MaxMSP, as well as Electronics & Tape.
    I enjoy exploring the electronic side of Sonic Arts and acousmatic music, along with the texture's and timbre's of art music - I recently composed for Theremin in which I combined these elements of music. In my free time I play in a Riot Grrrl band.

    5. Chin Ting Chan - Rituals

    Rituals is inspired by various ritual processes of different cultures. Some rituals involve elaborate processes, while others are simply daily rituals inherited from the tradition. While most rituals are diversely different, they all engage a sequence of actions according to a prescribed order guided by a mythical belief. This piece takes inspirations and sonic elements reminiscent of the ritual processes and forms a sonic collage that alternates constantly between hyper-real and surreal soundscapes, and creates a multi-layered texture of timbral and rhythmic complexity. Some of the sound sources include air, wind chimes, metals, water, piano resonance and various drum patterns, processed almost exclusively with Cycling 74’s Max program.

    Bio: Raised in Hong Kong, composer Chin Ting (Patrick) CHAN is Assistant Professor of Music Theory and Composition at Ball State University. His music has been featured throughout the North and South Americas, Europe and Asia; at festivals such as the International Computer Music Conference, the International Rostrum of Composers, IRCAM’s ManiFeste, the ISCM World Music Days Festival, June in Buffalo, the mise-en music festival and the Wellesley Composers Conference, among many others.

    6. Gregory Kramer - Riis

    Riis was composed using the sounds of the Marine Parkway Bridge across Rockaway Inlet. Named for the beach and park which is reached by the causeway, the bridge is a favorite sonic spot of mine in New York. It is just above Dead Horse Bay, a litter strewn area, so named I've heard, because it was once a dumping area for horse carcasses used by a glue factory.

    1st September 2016 @ 2:00 am - 3:00 am

    For All the Sea the Land Remains is fifty-four minutes in length and features field recordings from Dubai, Fujairah (both in the United Arab Emirates), Istanbul, Bangkok and Vientiane in Laos. In addition to the field recordings, Coates plays harmonica, keyboards and guitar alongside digitally-manufactured acousmatic sounds.

    The work samples the songs 'Shagufa' by Geeta Dutt (1953), 'Hum Aur Tum Aur Ye Khushi' by Surendra (from the 1940 film 'Alibaba') and 'Aahen Na Bharin Shikve Na Kiye' by Zeenat (1945). There are also samples from Parviz Kimiavi's 1970 film 'Oh, Protector of the Gazelle'.. Additonal vocal contributions from English performance artist Caroline Smith, Emirati artist Sara Al Haddad and Denise Coates. For All the Sea the Land Remains represents the desperate hope that landscape provides, despite gross overdevelopment. The title suggest that, even though the land is being decimated and desecrated, the sea still is indefatigable.

    5. Katherine Ka Yi Liu & Lo Mei Wa - Homeland for other Diasporas

    A collaborative work that created by Lo Mei Wa, a poet from Hong Kong and Katherine Ka Yi Liu, an Asian female artist who is currently based in Glasgow, UK. Lo and Liu both shares an on-going rebellion against traditions and stereotyping in our globalised society, while one exercises in language and the other practices in art. In a wider Western community, Asian women are still being perceived as exotic objects, fetishized and submissive where Asian men are being viewed in an exact opposite way. Homeland for Other Diasporas questions and contemplates the contradictory identities of women in our contemporary generation. As women, we are constantly searching for a balance in-between traditional and progressive.

  • Simon Grab - Braincast

    1st September 2016 @ 4:00 am - 5:00 am

    Have you already carried around a stupid pop song for hours with yourself in the head? Interesting for us sound creators, composers and musicians: The music in the head can also be created and transformed by pure thought. We can extract single instruments and sounds, zoom in and out acoustically, add and modulate sounds and adapt the volume.

    How does imagined music sound? Which potential have such inner compositions? Which musical perspectives can we develop? Could we somehow connect the music in the head, so we can hear it in the loudspeaker? Will it it soon be possible to make imagined music audible by neuro technology?

    4. Nad Spiro - Sparky 1 -radiation level “SIRIUS RADIO FREQUENCIES”

    Last year I worked in the Cork ’s Harbour area as artist in residence at Sirius Arts Center, Cobh co. Cork (Ireland). My project was about the harbour as a setting for acoustic transit : I developed some sound fictions that included transmission codes, navigation narratives, signal stations, radar tones, Marconi’s experiments, sirens, Titanic messages... These music pieces were later performed live at the “Sounds from a Safe Harbour” festival (Cork, Sept. 2015. During my stay at Sirius I created some “radio frequencies” of my own with electronic instruments in order to include them in the final pieces. The tracks I submit to Radiophrenia are de original, isolated “Sirius Radio Frequencies” that I created there. What better medium than a radio broadcast to disseminate them?

    Bio: Basque born guitarist Rosa Arruti has been working since 2000 under the
    anonymous alias Nad Spiro, her solo venture that sets out to build a world
    of electronic textures and sound fictions from a complex processed guitar
    set-up. She has played also with some of Barcelona’s most cutting edge bands
    and kept international collaborations with the likes of My Cat Is An Alien,
    Kim Cascone, The Asterism and MK Ibáñez. Her records have been released by
    the pioneering Spanish experimental label Geometrik.

    7. Magz Hall - Lone Broadcast

    This work considers radio as a tool of essential communication (by the emergency services) in its more common broadcast use. I wanted toplay with the notion of emergency shipping broadcasts through the conjecture that FM could, in a putative ‘post-analogue-switch-off’ future be used for all such transmissions. Maritime radio, currently known as Marine VHF radio, refers to the frequency range between 156.0 and 162.025 MHz. (Since 2011, Ofcom has been researching selling off analogue TV space, and has been contemplating selling FM as ‘ white space’ for mobile devices.) Lone Broadcast is realised as a futile FM mono broadcast of a lone women stranded at sea whom no one can hear, a deliberate metaphor of the waves as radio waves, which were made from white noise static. I asked writer Sonia Overall (nee Frost) to write the central poem for the work which is also voiced by her.

    Bio: Sound and radio artist and senior lecturer at Canterbury Christ Church University. Magz runs artist group Radio Arts who explore the artistic potential of radio with the wider community. Her sound work has been exhibited in the British Museum, the Sainsbury Centre, Whitechapel Gallery, MACBA Barcelona, Denmark, Italy, Germany, Norway, Morocco, Canada and the USA and broadcast. Magz has recently completed a practice based PhD in Radio Art at University of the Arts London.

    Bio: Jeff Kolar is a sound artist, radio producer, and curator. He is the Founder and Artistic Director of Radius, an experimental radio broadcast platform established in 2010. His work, which has been described as “speaker-shredding” (Half Letter Press), “wonderfully strange” (John Corbett), and “characteristically curious” (Marc Weidenbaum), activates sound in unconventional, temporary, and ephemeral ways using appropriation and remix as a critical practice. His solo and collaborative projects, installations, and public performances often investigate the mundane sonic nuances of everyday electronic devices.

  • Chris Dooks - Shellackplatten Quintet Live

    1st September 2016 @ 6:00 am - 7:00 am

    A live mix of rare 78s for at least three beautifully irritable gramophones (which ended up being FIVE! hence it now being a quintet).

    Big thanks to Mark Vernon for recording the set which because of the idiosyncrasies in the record players and discs, varies in volume - also there's a generator in the background for a food stall! More thanks at the end of this text.

    From the Sanctuary2015.org text:

    Over the last few years, artist Chris Dooks has been working with vinyl and shellac records (and wind up gramophones) as he trawls eBay and markets for aural gems without a home – until now! With a project in line with Dooks’ recent PhD on working closely with vinyl, Chris unveils some of his rare 78rpm records and new vintage record players for Sanctuary 2015 for this hour-long performance.

    On a recent trip to Moabit, Berlin, partly for Sanctuary, Dr Dooks visited Europe’s leading idiosyncratic dealer of rare shellac to complete an exclusive palette of sound for this performance. The store, open one day a week, and with an army of Berlin’s shellac devotees crammed into a very modest but highly organised shop, Dooks completed a collection of extremely rare 78s – which at the risk of a spoiler-alert will make for a thematically appropriate one-hour mix for The Dark Outside 2015.

    This is not without risks – without control of volume, consistent playback speed and the risk of breaking springs – can Chris mix at least three gramophones together – ‘triangulating’ or creating a series of sonic layers from 78s as a mix? Bear in mind the sound is ‘unamplified’ other than from the boxes themselves, so could he make such a mix from these irritable machines?

    There’s only one way to find out! Dooks is fond of limitations and this is a simple idea that could get quite complex and unpredictable live. Not to be missed for fans of Philip Jeck, lovers of field recordings and raw scratchy shellac aesthetics.

    Big thanks to Mark Vernon for this recording, Gerry Cassidy and Mark Lyken for assistance.

    Dr Chris Dooks (b.1971) is an Edinburgh-based interdisciplinary artist and academic researcher. In 1998 Dooks began to pursue his own works full time as a professional multimedia artist after directing arts programmes in his early career.

    His 2014 PhD is titled “The Fragmented Filmmaker – Emancipating The Exhausted Artist” and is both a text and a conceptual vinyl trilogy. The expansive project aimed to provide Dooks with a ‘container’ to house many sonic experiments in overcoming chronic health problems. On a more ‘Radiophonic’ level, in 2015 Eilean Records released Dooks’ first post-doctoral album ‘Accretion Disc’ which contains many shortwave radio works.

    Project - "Broken Cysm"

    Cutup/ Plundered work.

    The control mechanisms that micro manage the dissed-posesssed and the institutions that house humans with mental health disorders, learning difficulties and social exclusion (including animals). Awaiting referral turning feral forcing intervention.

    In relation to media companies who document and warp the language of societal opinion schism within the arse end of the edit. Turning the virtual tame in to a wild but lame accusing prism.

    The piece has an unnerving relentless pulse that accompanies the dialogue, even the absurdity of advertisements enter the despair and punctuate the ridicule of the subjects on display. Lost cats and hissing people...

  • Found Sound Answering Machines - Episode 2 - John Morin

    1st September 2016 @ 7:30 am - 8:00 am

    Found Sound Answering Machines is a series of analog recordings gathered from answering machine tapes found at thrift stores, estate sales and junk piles. In the rush to embrace new technology, we frequently discard the old outdated models just as fast without considering what personal memories and left-behind, intimate moments they might contain.

    Radio Eyes is an active listening project by California-based sound artist John Morin that seeks to explore the potentiality of personal sonic space and offers new ways of seeing and hearing the world around us. The work reminds us that if seeing is believing, than what we hear can be unbelievable.

    1. Dganit Elyakim - Old Skool

    Old Skool is rooted in the alphabet of the Amharic and Tigrinya languages of Ethiopia and Eritrea. It relies on a simple repetitive tune, taught in elementary schools to help the children memorise the letters. Eleven soloists from “Eskesta ensemble” were recorded singing that tune. Each of them interpreted it the way they remember it, starting from any pitch that comes to them.

    This tune is interspersed with snapshots of free, associative improvisation on the letters, for which the soloists used their voice and bodies. The passion, humour, rhythms and musical gestures bursting out of these recordings cascade out of the collage.

    Bio: Dganit Elyakim is a composer and sound-artist. Her music depicts various aspects of the human and digital paradigm. Through MIDI protocols and algorithmically based behaviours of the computer-performer she confronts the human musician with a digital based reality. Elyakim was awarded the Israeli Prime Minister’s Prize in 2011 in composition, the America-Israel-Cultural-Foundation scholarship and others. Her music was featured at events and venues such as Gaudeamus Festival (Amsterdam), Ars Electronica (Linz), Tel Aviv Museum of Arts, Rebecca Crown Hall (Jerusalem).
    In March 2016, she released her debut album “Failing Better”, under the label “Aural Terrians”

    2. Gregory Whitehead – Principia Schizophonica

    An instructional recording from Exercises in Spontaneous Speech Pathology performed by Dr Hans Gregor Vicekopf. After many years of clincal analysis and public advocacy Dr Hans Gregor Vicekopf is widely recognized for his pioneering role in the establishment of Spontaneous Speech Pathology (SSP) as an independent art form. Having completed his five year practicum at the Ambrose Paré Center for Wound Research, Dr Vicekopf is presently resident director of the International Institute for Screamscape Studies, where he is involved in an extensive documentation of how ancient human scream residues intermingle with birdsong delay envelopes to foster hitherto unexplained electromagnetic phenomena.

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

    7. Sophie Brown/The DIY Space for London Free Orchestra - John Cage's Imaginary Landscape no. 4

    John Cage: Imaginary Landscape no. 4 for 12 Radios (1951)' was performed as part of the Radio Festival at DIY Space for London, 9th July with 24 players. We orchestrated a workshop to discuss the score and how to translate it into a format that anyone could read, not just people who could read music. We drew new scores, using blocks, signs, colours and numbers. The piece was longer than the original as the tempo changes were removed to make it playing easier and so radio's finished and dropped out at different times, leaving a solo radio at the end.

    Bio: The DIY Space for London Free Orchestra was created to perform this piece for the first Radio Festival. The 'Orchestra' was made up of volunteers from DIY Space For London, a cooperatively and volunteer-run social centre located in South London. During the day, it offers low cost creative facilities, meeting rooms and social space, and in the evening we offer space for screenings, talks and performances. Other events at Radio Festival included radio making workshops, talks and performances, and the Festival will continue to be staged intermittently.

  • Remote Series 4 - Trilogy for Night and Radio - Anna Friz & Konrad Korabiewski

    1st September 2016 @ 10:00 am - 10:45 am

    Anna Friz (Canada) and Konrad Korabiewski (Poland/Denmark/Iceland): Trilogy for Night and Radio: Radiotelegraph, Night Fall, Relay

    Autumn in the far north is characterized by a dramatic loss of daylight. In Seyðisfjörður, a small village on the far eastern edge of Iceland just below the Arctic Circle, each day in October has eight minutes less daylight than the one before. The sun is slower each day to crest the mountains which ring the fjord, until mid-November when it no longer rises above the mountains, and the town experiences only indirect light until February. Trilogy for Night and Radio is a radio art work in three parts that explores remoteness, the descent into darkness and the long Northern winter night. Trilogy is a collaborative exchange between two traveling sound artists - Anna Friz and Konrad Korabiewski - that meditates on feelings of place using the materiality of signals, overlapping remote geographical spaces.

    Radiotelegraph, is a beacon in spoken morse code, designed for unlicensed radio simulcast in Seysdisfjördur, Iceland, and in Chicago, U.S.A on the Radius platform in October 2013. Incorporating performed morse code, electronics, and sampled radio signals, Radiotelegraph reflects Seyðisfjörður's remote location in a deep fjord off the Atlantic Ocean, which was also the site of the first telegraph cable connection between Iceland and Europe in 1906. Night Fall is an improvised live performance by Anna Friz and Konrad Korabiewski for unlicensed low-watt transmission in Seyðisfjörður to accompany the shift from sundown into full night time darkness.

    Night Fall elaborates on the sonic palate created in part one, with a soundscape that contemplates the acoustic and electro-magnetic landscape of Seyðisfjörður in the disappearing light of dusk and the feeling of suspended or expanded time that strongly characterizes this village in east Iceland. The performance was recorded live from a small transistor radio receiver, and edited.

    The final segment, Relay, is built from recordings made by Anna and Konrad around the winter solstice (December 21-22) in the empty post-industrial spaces in which they were working--Anna in a former tobacco factory in Ljubljana, Slovenia; Konrad in an empty herring factory in Seydisfjördur. They intertwined these traces and signals from distant spaces, using the architecture and landscape as a filter for their signals. Anna took elements from Radiotelegraph and replayed them into the iron bannisters and wooden walls of the tobacco factory using tactile transducers, or speakers which transmit vibrations into surfaces. These signals were re-recorded using contact microphones, and sent to Konrad, who mixed them together with field recordings from different houses and the empty herring factory.

    Bio:

    Anna Friz is a Canadian sound and radio artist, and media studies scholar. She has created audio art and radiophonic works for extensive international broadcast, installation, or performance in more than 25 countries, where radio is the source, subject, and medium of the work. Anna is Assistant Professor of Sound in the Film and Digital Media Department of University of California, Santa Cruz. She is a steering member of the artist collective Skálar |Sound Art | Experimental Music based in East Iceland and a long time affiliate artist of Wave Farm (formerly free103point9) in Acra, New York.

    Konrad Korabiewski is an award-winning experimental composer, sound and media artist working worldwide and currently residing in Seyðisfjörður, East Iceland, and California. Among international prizes and grants in 2014 Konrad Korabiewski was awarded the prestigious Berliner Künstlerprogramm des DAAD academic award & working grant and nominated for 2 Media Art Awards in Germany. Konrad Korabiewski is founder and currently the director of Skálar | Sound Art | Experimental Music, Seyðisfjörður, East Iceland, and an independent curator.

    Skálar FM presents The remote series

    In 2014-2015, Skálar FM, a project of Skálar | Sound Art | Experimental Music was
    commissioned by the Creative Audio Unit of Radio National, Australia's national public broadcaster, to create a 5-part radio art series for their program Soundproof. The remote series consists of four programmes created by internationally acclaimed artists working with sound and curated by Anna Friz and Konrad Korabiewski. Each was asked to consider an aspect of the idea of 'remoteness', or the experience of distance.

    As Skálar originates in the small town of Seyðisfjörður on the north east coast of Iceland just below the Arctic circle, 'remoteness' most obviously describes the experience of existing outside of the geographical and cultural centers of power, or by a feeling of having journeyed far away from populous areas across rough seas and rugged, far-flung landscape to reach a so-called end of the earth. More fundamentally, the defining feature of remoteness is the experience of distance, however minute or vast, in time or in space.

    About Skálar:

    Skálar | Sound Art | Experimental Music is an artist-run organization established in 2012 investigating new methods for sound art and experimental music practices. Based in eastern Iceland, it takes the name ‘Skálar’ in honour of the Icelandic pioneer of electronic music Magnús Blöndal Jóhannsson. Skálar acts as both an artist collective and a mobile curatorial platform, and produces an itinerant ( Skálar Sound Art) festival, international exchanges, and limited edition releases of audio and audio-visual works. Curatorially, Skálar's focus is on creating site-speci fic sonic-based interactions with landscapes, both geographical or built. Skálar is particularly interested to generate and support artistic practices which highlight unstable systems, open spaces to new interpretations and use, and which engage in perceptual feedback and affect between site and subject. The organization's activities also include radio with Skálar FM, which promotes both micro-radio and transmission art works as well as interventions into the broadcast domain through commissions and curation developed in concert with various national public radio and independent radio stations.

    1st September 2016 @ 10:45 am - 11:30 am

    Short works including:

    1) Joe Howe - The Panegryic & the Into-Face (7:27)
    2) William Aikman and Rhona Mühlebach - Portrait of a Cow (7:30)

    Details:

    1) Joe Howe - The Panegryic & the Into-Face.

    This piece was made for an event called ‘Art (After)’ at ANDOR gallery in London, 2013.
    ‘A description of Max/MSP software language written using only words from Frankenstein (Shelley, 1831)
    Text by Annabel Frearson, Music by Joe Howe, Vocal by Julia Scott.

    2) William Aikman and Rhona Mühlebach - Portrait of a cow

    Meeting a cow. Portray her. Describe her beauty and ugliness, her strength and softness.
    Visitors of Pollok Park stop and watch her. Some longer than others but they all stop. A
    highland cow, what a random animal. Intriguing. Fold or herd ? Is there highland cow wool ?
    How can she see with her long hair over her eyes? Does she fight? Is she curious?
    Are you curious? Can I cuddle you? How does she sound? Description of the project
    Portrait of a cow is an experimental documentary for radio. The work portrays the highland cow Faoilte from Pollok Park. As source material we will use an interview with the cowman who tells us about the personal history of Faolite. Furthermore we use an interview with two visitors of Pollok Park who describe the cow in her appearance and we also use an interview with a psychologist from the University of Leicester who studies the effect of music on cows (or with an interview of a scientist who studies sexual behaviour of cows). Besides these didactic bits we will use recordings of Faolite. By editing the different sounds we create a composition which is Faolite ’s very unique one. In the work Portrait of a cow the cow herself will have a theme song in which she will sing. The form and style of the documentary will evolve through creative use of digital audio production techniques. Music, field recordings and sound design are fundamental to the research and presentation of the topic. How we experience and how we work with sound will be structurally significant.

    Artists: The piece is a collaboration between William Aikman and Rhona Mühlebach.
    William Aikman is a Sound Designer and Composer. He has been working in the film industry since completing a Masters at Glasgow School of Art in 2013. After finishing her BA at Filmschool (ECAL) in Switzerland, Rhona Mühlebach is currently studying at the Glasgow School of Art in the Master of Fine Art programme


  • Chris Dooks - Lessons Learned in The Königsforst

    1st September 2016 @ 11:30 am - 12:00 pm
    The Königsforst

    A 30 minute lecture / sound-piece for The Environmental Arts Festival Scotland 2015, on how to sleep to an important piece of ambient techno - Wolfgang Voigt's 'Königsforst' under his GAS alias. I went to the forest of the title in order to make the work.

    Please note that this was an off-the-cuff largely improvised lecture to myself and some trees and as a result a few details / pronunciations are a little wobbly. As I was.

    Dr Chris Dooks (b.1971) is an Edinburgh-based interdisciplinary artist and academic researcher. In 1998 Dooks began to pursue his own works full time as a professional multimedia artist after directing arts programmes in his early career.

    His 2014 PhD is titled “The Fragmented Filmmaker – Emancipating The Exhausted Artist” and is both a text and a conceptual vinyl trilogy. The expansive project aimed to provide Dooks with a ‘container’ to house many sonic experiments in overcoming chronic health problems. On a more ‘Radiophonic’ level, in 2015 Eilean Records released Dooks’ first post-doctoral album ‘Accretion Disc’ which contains many shortwave radio works.

  • Iain Chambers - The Eccentric Press

    1st September 2016 @ 12:30 pm - 1:00 pm

    The Eccentric Press.

    This piece was commissioned and broadcast by WDR Cologne earlier this year.
    It's a 25-minute piece made entirely from obsolete German industrial sounds, recorded by the pan-EU Work With Sounds project.

    My work is often concerned with environmental sounds and the sound of industry and machines. I use these as the compositional building blocks of my music. I tend not to process the sounds too much, because I want you to be able to hear what they are, and then to hear them in a musical context. So there are a lot of raw field recordings in this piece.

    My music is usually quite melodic, and it was a challenge to find melody in these harsh industrial processes. But as I worked on the piece, the more the pitches and harmonies in the recordings came out.

    Biog:
    Iain Chambers is a composer whose work often makes use of field recordings and location sounds as compositional material. Iain has won particular acclaim for making experimental radio, twice being a finalist at the EU-wide Prix Europa, and winning several UK Radio Academy awards. Iain is a founder member of the UK's leading musique concrete composing / performing ensemble, Langham Research Centre. Iain's work is broadcast internationally, and his music commissioned by Radio National Australia, The Guardian, The National Trust, Borealis Festival Norway, Ny Musikk Norway, Oxford Contemporary Music and Spitalfields Music Festival.

    1. Rhiannon Walsh - No Wind Chimes Required

    Meditation is great. Music is great. But more often than not, the latter lives without the former and vice versa. No Wind Chimes Required is the recording that attempts to combine both genres to offer an alternative to wind-chimey, harp-heavy meditations available online. In this debut episode join me in a basic chakra clearing to help you feel more grounded and relaxed. Layered over the experimental sounds of XXYYXX this meditation might help you sleep, introduce you to an alternative practice or simply give you a new album to check out. All without a pan-pipe in sight.

    3. Chin Ting Chan - Oceanus
    In Greek Mythology, Oceanus was portrayed as a Titan. As one of the many sons of Uranus and Gaia, he was believed to be a river that encircles the world. I borrowed the name Oceanus for this piece to depict water in a natural environment. This piece is roughly divided into three sections. The first section consists of only sounds of water. The sound of the rain and a non-processed thunder strike mark the beginning of the second section, which also feature a multitude of animal sounds. The last section incorporates combination of sounds from both previous sections.

    Bio: Raised in Hong Kong, composer Chin Ting (Patrick) CHAN is Assistant Professor of Music Theory and Composition at Ball State University. His music has been featured throughout the North and South Americas, Europe and Asia; at festivals such as the International Computer Music Conference, the International Rostrum of Composers, IRCAM’s ManiFeste, the ISCM World Music Days Festival, June in Buffalo, the mise-en music festival and the Wellesley Composers Conference, among many others.

    4. Volker Hennes - Ambassador Batter 14

    From the album Emperor Ambassador (Entr’acte 2015). An exciter slowly glides down a tilted and unstretched drumhead which is affixed with a contact microphone whose signal is sent back to the exciter. Each kind of drumhead determines the distinct motion and response of the exciter, resulting in particular gliding speeds, feedback frequencies, dynamics and tonal progression. The gliding procedure on each drumhead is 
repeated and superimposed up to 20 times.

    Bio: Volker Hennes (born 1976) studied at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne; works as composer and sound-artist focussing on methods of production and reproduction of temporal and local organized sound - synthesized and replicated incidences.

    5. Manja Ristić - Miniature for violin & lunch preparation

    Miniature for violin & lunch preparation (( in delayed atmosphere of the stove aspirator )) is an experimental aural intervention consist of a field recording and improv segment integrated in to composition based on time dialog falling in and out of contrapunkt. Violin improv segment is reading of a graphic score by Pheobe Riley Law ~ induced from the project based upon ‘objects’ and alternative ways that they can be represented when the context is changed. Chosen object is a book on Japanese architecture scanned in various ways and this resulted in ‘Score for Nissei Theatre’. Both segments of the Miniature are recorded on the 9th floor of the 22 storey building in Voždovac ~ Belgrade.

    6. Nat Grant - Precious

    Precious blurs the boundaries between functional object and musical instrument. This work was created over 2013-15 and involved collecting hundreds of old keys - keys to things that didn't work or exist anymore, or keys that had been found: any number and size/shape as long as they were no longer needed or wanted. Thanks to word of mouth and call outs on social media more than 300 keys were donated to the project. The keys were then used like percussion instruments, recorded and digitally manipulated/collaged to create the final work.

    Bio: Nat Grant is a percussionist and sound artist from Melbourne, Australia. Her work explores intersections between improvisation, chance and intention in the development of sound as a sculptural medium. Her solo performances integrate electronic processing and sampling with acoustic percussion instruments and found objects. Nat holds a PhD in Music Composition from the Victorian College of the Arts (University of Melbourne). She performs regularly at venues around Melbourne, and is frequently engaged in projects and performances that invite her audience to be part of the process or realisation of an artwork.

    7. Chin Ting Chan - Of Metals and Electrons

    I have always been fascinated by the sound of electricity and how it is consistently present in our everyday lives without us noticing them. The closest sound that I can associate to the sound I have described above is the resonant of any metal, which to me, creates some very high overtones that approximate the sonic images of my “loud” room. To make a connection, metal is a conductor that can effectively transfer electric currency, and this is the theme to my Of Metals and Electrons. This piece contains metal sounds that are stretched and layered, with which emerges a narrative that guides the listeners through these invisible sounds.

    8. Rebecca Glover – Too Hot

    What would it feel like to emerge from the ice after 350,000 years of dormancy? As the pack ice in the Arctic melts ancient microbes are re-emerging into the ecosystem.
    This piece explores ideas of genetic and experiential memory, evolution, climate change and future imaginings shifting the point of view from human centric to microbial.

    Bio: Rebecca Glover works with installation, sound, video, sculpture and painting. Based in London she has founded two curatorial projects, Bread and Jam and Please Stand By. She is a visiting lecturer at Central Saint Martins and The Art Academy. She studied for BA at Edinburgh College of Art 2009 and with Alt MFA 2013-15. She is interested in notions of ‘the natural and unnatural’ environment and the frameworks through which we regard our environment. Central themes in her practice are agency, myth, narrative, memory, transformation and evolution, both at the personal level and in terms of environmental events and cycles.

  • Cryptic Nights Preview

    1st September 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm

    Altered Spaces
    A playful journey through the works of Timothy Cooper, David Fyans & William Aikman

    Timothy Cooper, David Fyans and William Aikman take a break from installing and sound checking in the CCA to share ideas and samples of their work ahead of Altered Spaces, a Cryptic Nights triple bill on Thu 1 – Fri 2 September at 8pm.

    Cryptic Nights are a series of events that cross creative boundaries with live music, visual and sonic art, film and new media, produced by Cryptic.

    http://www.cryptic.org.uk

    About Timothy Cooper
    Timothy is a composer and performer of electroacoustic music. As a composer he is interested in small, delicate and detailed sounds. He uses technology in his work to explore these sounds and to find new contexts for the sounds he chooses to work with. He uses microphones as sonic microscopes and loudspeakers to amplify and heighten the qualities of the sounds he records so they can gather greater significance and energy.

    He is fortunate to be involved in current projects with excellent collaborators - working with Laura Bissell (poet) to explore the sea-words and sea-sounds; with Samuel Tongue (poet) and Susie Leiper (calligrapher/painter) at Cove Park, exploring the relationships between their practices and to work on the start of a new work and on a new piece for tuba and multi-channel live electronics with Danielle Price.

    About David Fyans
    David is an artist and freelance producer/designer/technician currently based in Perthshire, Scotland. He deals in sound, performance, installation, text and still and moving images to convey the conceptual ideas behind his work. His main influences lean towards subconscious interventions, mysticism, psychogeography, extra-dimensional and liminal spaces and ruminations on time and our understanding of it.

    He performs sculptural audio, ritual performance pieces and improvised works regularly, along with both digital and physical releases in his own name and as Erstlaub on Broken20, Highpoint lowlife and Moving Furniture among others. His work has been presented in Germany, London, Brighton and throughout Scotland.

    He is also Art Director for, and assists in the co-running of, Broken20, a tiny Glasgow-based record label which, for the last 5 years, has released all manner of dusty, decayed and broken music, film, text and other matter both physically and digitally.

    About William Aikman
    William is a sound designer who builds interactive musical installations that encourage other non-musicians to play. His work celebrates improvisation and expression over skilled musical performance. He graduated from Glasgow School of Art’s Sound Design Masters in 2013. He works as a Sound Editor for film and TV from his purpose built studio in The Glue Factory, Glasgow.

    His collaborator for Self Portrait as a Musical Instrument, George Thompson, is a furniture maker and artist based in Glasgow, Scotland. He tries to create objects that are as interested in you as you are in them.

  • OBAFG - Ronald Duncan/Phonic FM

    1st September 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 3:30 pm

    O-B-A-F-G A play by Ronald Duncan

    Examining the tensions between scientific and spiritual beliefs about the 'birth' of matter and our relationship with the earth, O-B-A-F-G is an experimental audio-theatre piece by Ronald Duncan from 1964. As our perceptions of matter and space have changed quite drastically since the early 1960s due to the pace of technological developments, this re-imagining of O-B-A-F-G – a collaboration between digital performance company Blind Ditch, arts event NOSE, and Exeter’s community radio station Phonic FM – explores the possibilities offered by current digital technologies to expand the spaces in which the piece is performed

    Make your own DIY happening at home to accompany the performance:
    Listen to the stereo audio broadcast using headphones or speakers positioned to your left and right
    Click on this Vimeo link: https://vimeo.com/127963126
    Assemble a pile of random household objects in the glow of your computer screen.
    Pull the curtains, turn off all the lights, you want it as dark as the beginning of time
    After hearing the words “Then then then then then…” press play on the video.

    This version was first exhibited in the Black Box studio at Exeter Phoenix on 15 May 2015 and simultaneously broadcast on Phonic FM. It is a collaborative project, between Blind Ditch, NOSE2015, and Phonic FM. The work has been created with the support of Exeter Phoenix and the Ronald Duncan Literary Foundation.

  • Carrie Skinner - Victor, is there anyone there?

    1st September 2016 @ 3:30 pm - 3:45 pm

    Carrie Skinner
    ‘Victor, is there anyone there?’

    The Australian radio production of ‘Frankenstein’ starring George Edwards in many of the roles was originally broadcast in thirteen parts on ‘2GB Radio’ Sydney in 1931. An unfaithful appropriation of Mary Shelley’s novel, the serial will be exhumed and rebroadcast over thirteen days. Listeners are invited to visit Creative Lab at the CCA at 3pm, 29th Aug -11th Sep (except 3rd Sep).

    Some-where/some-when an actor, their costume, a script and a prop. Someone is trying to get through to you. From the darkness of an imagined/invisible performance space, emerges the body of a voice. Hello? Who’s calling? A polymorphic interpolator talking over the radio, reaching over out of one blind space into another. Victor, is there anyone there?

    Biography:

    Carrie Skinner is a visual artist and undergraduate of the Glasgow School of Art, she completed an MLitt in Theatre Practices at Glasgow University in 2015. Her practice instinctively foregrounds thematic, structural and aesthetic devices emanating from a long standing engagement with the epic narratives of Gothic literature.


  • Echoes of Industry - Gerald Fiebig & Christian Z. Müller

    1st September 2016 @ 3:45 pm - 4:00 pm

    Echoes of Industry undertakes to reflect, in an acoustic form, the social and architectural shifts that happen in European cities as certain industries are abandoned while industry itself becomes increasingly digital. For this purpose, sounds of textile machines were recorded in a museum representing the history of the once-vibrant textile industry in the German city of Augsburg. Samples from these sounds were played back, in a duo improvisation with a saxophone, in an abandoned gas tank in the same city, making use of the immense echo delay created by this huge 84-metre high metal chamber.

    Christian Z. Müller (b. 1963, saxophones, theremin) is an architect, musician, and community activist on sustainability issues. Gerald Fiebig (b. 1973, sampler, field recordings, processing) is a cultural manager, audio artist, and writer. They are both based in Augsburg, Germany, and have collaborated on a number of artistic projects in the field of experimental music.

  • Anthony Carcone - And the Band Played On

    1st September 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

    Produced by the ACR, France Culture, Radio France.

    This is my journey with my uncle and author Christopher Ward to discover the truth about my great grandfather, the Scottish violinist Jock Hume who died on the Titanic weeks before he was due to be married. The sinking was just the beginning of this story.
    From Dumfries to Southampton with Christopher Ward (author of "And the Band Played On...", Peter Boyd Smith (owner of Cobwebs) and Padmini Broomfield (Lead Outreach Projects Officer of Arts and Heritage at the Southampton City Council).

    One hundred years later, with his book, "And the Band Played On..." the author Christopher Ward reveals a dramatic story of love, loss and betrayal, and the catastrophic impact of Jock's death on two very different Scottish families. He paints a vivid portrait of an age in which class determined the way you lived-and died.

    Azar aka Anthony Carcone is a sound artist living and working in Paris. 
He makes radio programme, installations, soundtracks and concerts. Works have been played on Radio France Atelier, ACSR (Bruxelles), Arte radio, and Choq radio through the Radia networkand have been presented at radio festivals in over many countries around the world. He has also performed live with his band ETC all over the world. With his recordings, Azar create from a work on surrounding sounds, real soundscapes that alter our perception of the outside world.


  • Richard Bailie - Travelogues

    1st September 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 5:30 pm

    Travelogues is a 30 minute live to air improvisation, using three portable FM broadcasters to transmit location recordings to a single radio. The recordings themselves comprise soundscapes collected over a number of years while traveling in Europe and the U.S., and present contrasting environmental and industrial sounds, high- and low-fidelity recordings and found rhythmic and harmonic content. The juxtaposition and superimposition created by tuning the radio between broadcasts finds points of compatibility between different spaces while dislocating the listener from any one locality; sounds are recalled as memories - impulsively, irrespective of distance and chronology.

    Richard Bailie is a composer and sound artist. His instrumental work utilises auditory beating and the sympathetic vibration of strings, while recent electronic work has explored the use of radio feedback and recordings of ambient sound.

  • Clear Spot

    1st September 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 6:00 pm

    Short works including:

    1) Kevin Testagrossa - Speech & Rain (8:03)
    2) Jo Tomlinson - Writhing beyond the glass (8.36mins)

    Details:

    1) Kevin Testagrossa - Speech & Rain

    This piece incorporates sound sources of the human voice and rain falling on plastic bags. The piece explores how we identify the human voice as a means of expressing emotion. Not necessarily through words or sentences, but rather through gestural qualities of the sounds produced by the human voice.

    Bio: My name is Kevin Testagrossa and I am an electro acoustic composer from the U.S.A. I’m 22 years old and I am currently studying a masters degree at The University of Manchester in Electro Acoustic Composition. The sounds that I compose are very synthesised and electronic, ranging from very granular sounds to ambient and subtle drones. When It comes to the way I record my sounds, I usually do field recordings with contact, coil and portable Zoom microphones.
    Youtube Channel - https://www.youtube.com/c/kevicusmusic

    2) Jo Tomlinson - Writhing beyond the glass
    Deconstructing and reconstructing
    Flesh and machine incased in glass, tubes connecting move. Anticipated reflection,
    gently massaged into unconscious association. This soundscape explores a conceptual processing of our everyday landscape as we engage with objects and navigate through spaces.
    Underpinning this processing is the consideration of objects on a molecular level and the constant perpetual movement and transformation of materials of different scales to deliver an object’s characteristics. The sound/sculpture/object can be conceived as a movement itself, a sequence of actions within a dynamic system.

    Bio
    I am a multi disciplinary artist exploring the relationship and juxtaposition between sculpture, moving image and sound. My creative outputs oscillate between physical and audible structures and explore the synergy. At present my practice involves experimenting with including multi-channel immersive sound works within my installations to further my exploration of cross-modal pollination between sensory perceptions. Recent projects include; ‘Elastic Lapse’ with Kenny Love (Glasgow International 2016), ‘Obliques’, The Glue Factory, Glasgow, 2016 ‘MB Labor’ Max Bill Platz, Zurich, 2016, Creating Immersive Sound Art Workshop (participant), Call&Response Collective, Enclave, Deptford, London, 2015, Deep Listening Workshop (participant) with Ximena Alcercon, Scottish Sculpture Workshop, 2014.

  • Fritz Welch - Skin and Blood Do You Read Me

    1st September 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 7:00 pm

    I wrote this monologue for my cousin, voice-over actor and sports commentator Brian Welch to read. It was originally released by Good Press Gallery as a dub-on-demand cassette.

    Fritz Welch began singing at the Hallelujah Bacon Church of Decatur Georgia at the tender age of a heathen actionist goatherd. He has spent many hours avoiding work and death while playing drums and exploring other sculptural possibilities. In this practice the fundamental determinance of line and volume is accumulated in a collision of stripped down abundance and never ending occular vibration.

    2. Ben Glas - Inging (From My Space To Yours)
    This piece is a part of a larger set of experiments that deal primarily with the interaction of sine wave tones, time and the individual’s perception within a specific placement in space. Using six different tones (300Hz, 400Hz, 500Hz, 600Hz, 700Hz and 800Hz) that are projected through six different speakers, a set of binaural microphones and a concept I like to call “the Relativity Drone”; this piece documents my physical movement through space and time, while loosely composing beats of harmony and dissonance. Through moments of stasis and rapid movement, I was hoping to invoke an introspective state, that could translate to others and their perception, as the primary instruments are sine waves and naturally subjective.

    Bio: Ben Glas is an interdisciplinary artist and experiential composer, whose work explores and questions the phenomenon of consciousness and awareness through interactive sonic installations. Through focusing on time, space and the individual’s relative interaction as tools for scoring compositions, Glas’s sonic work plays with ideas of egalitarian and alienated listening situations. Amongst his lifelong goals is bringing music and sound back to the experiential body, and thus an awareness and consciousness of self. He currently resides in Portland, Oregon.

    5. Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch - A London Thoroughfare 2 A.M.


    A London Thoroughfare 2 A.M. is a mise en musique of a 1914 poem by the Amy Lowell.
    The pieces uses feld recordings sourced around London at night, music (electronics, acoustic piano), and recorded voice, to highlight and refect the mood and words of her work, creating a sound world that transports the listener into the universe of 2 AM London, both now and 102 years ago. The piece is an exploration on how the identity of a city can remain unchanged at its core for years, and attempts to capture the cyclical, emotional and literal soundscape of a place.

    Bio: Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch is a London based, Paris born composer and pianist whose output spans flm score, bespoke composition and art installations for the likes of BBC Radio4, Film4, the V&A and the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Her debut album 'Like Water Through The Sand' came out in November 2015 through FatCat's post-classical imprint 130701 and was written for piano, string quartet and electronics.
    She has performed her compositions at the London's Union Chapel, Tallinn Music Week and Brighton Festival.

    6. J Diaz - Millitainment

    Millitainment is a work inspired by a documentary of the same title. In the documentary, the lives of modern day soldiers who control drones are explored. The parallel between video games and drone fighting is made along with the numbess one feels when it comes to making a drone strike--one button can kills hundreds. My piece explores distance between sound objects the numbess the soldiers described when it came to pressing the kill button.

    Bio: J Diaz is a Sound Artist based in New England. His work encompasses sound for theatre, dance and the concert stage. Recently, J has collaborated with theatre and dance companies in Oregon, Colorado, Indiana, New York City, and Ghana, Africa. Currently, J is working with the Accra Theatre Workshop on a new musical, several dance pieces and sound installations. Projects in NYC include working with the RadioTheatre, Poetic Theatre Productions, Stella Adler Studio of Acting, and Wide Eyed Productions where he is resident sound designer. In summer of 2015 J was the Assistant Sound Designer at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.

  • Dream. Like. Sound #02 - Isabelle Stragliati

    1st September 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

    Dream.Like.Sound is an experimental radio show series dealing with sound and radiophonic creation. It's a monthly sound reverie, a sound contemplation that goes with my research, on a chosen thematic… A work in progress, 10 episodes to un-learn doing radio shows. I broadcast sound works that inspire me, and readings (in french or english), together with my own sound work (sometimes created specifically for the show). Editing and mixing the show is fully part of the creation process. The series have been broadcast on the Radio Campus Angers, Grenoble, Orléans, Paris, Rouen, Tours, Radio U, Radio Grenouille, Campus FM (France), Radio Campus Bruxelles (Belgium), Radio ARA (Luxembourg), Radiophrenia (Scotland)...

    Dream.Like.Sound #02 : Différence et Répétition
    The loop. The hypnotic repetition of a rhythm. Of a sample. Of a pattern. Of a word.
    Until a sort of trance?
    Full tracklisting is available here:

    BIO
    Coming from the visual arts, Isabelle Stragliati turned to the sound medium in 2002 through DJing, as an extension of her approach of the film editing (under the moniker Rescue). She then practiced numerous aspects of radio production (as radio host, producer, music programmer, technician and program director) before reconciling it with her creative work. Her productions, involving field recording, documentary, musique concrète or techno, have been broadcast on national radios (France Culture, Radio Campus France), in festivals and events in Europe (Longueur d’Ondes, Futura, Brouillage, Take You There in France, Radiophrenia in Scotland, CinemaInYourHead in Luxembourg), and in contemporary art centers (CNAC de Grenoble, La Criée à Rennes, Casino Luxembourg).


  • Audiology for Beginners - Mark Vernon

    1st September 2016 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm

    Audiology for Beginners is a playful (though somewhat impractical) attempt at delivering a hearing test over the airwaves. The typical sounds of the hearing test - sine tones at specific frequencies and masks of white noise used to obscure voices - also happen to be the foundational building blocks of electronic music. These ideas and the palette of sounds generated from this source material are combined in a piece that is part radiophonic composition and part genuine attempt at a workable over the air hearing exam.

    Audiology for Beginners was first broadcast on WGXC 90.7 FM in the Greene and Columbia Counties of New York State in 2014 with subsequent broadcasts on Resonance FM, Resonance Extra and Radiophrenia . The work was completed during a residency at the Wave Farm study centre in Acra, NY.

    Supported by Wave Farm and Creative Scotland.

  • Tae Ateh - νόστος

    1st September 2016 @ 10:00 pm - 10:30 pm

    An interactive Fluxus, plunderphonic, cinematic, mashup made using sources from meditation tapes (Hemi-sync), electroacoustic music from the XVII International Competition "Luigi Russolo", songs, spoken words, interviews, tv shows. This track was born like a soundtrack of a fragment of the film "Nostos - Il Ritorno" (1989) by Franco Piavoli.

    Brief biography:

    Tae Ateh is a MultipleUse name adopted in 2015 in Belarus, Lithuania, England, Italy and Germany. Tae Ateh has been selected for a new multiple identity project in the tradition of Monty Cantsin, Karen Eliot and Luther Blissett. Anyone can become Tae Ateh simply by adopting the name. When one becomes Tae Ateh one has no family, no parents, no birth, no culture. Tae Ateh was not born, s/he was materialised from animist social forces, constructed as a means of entering the shifting terrain that circumscribes the ‘individual’ and society. Tae Ateh is a transsexual transnational transhuman collective phantom.

  • Lukas Simonis - Jacovitti and the Salami

    1st September 2016 @ 10:30 pm - 11:00 pm

    There is comic writer Benito’s Jacovitti’s underestimated promotion of the Salami AN SICH, as a concept, as a weapon, as an ideology. And there is a growing scene of Salami awareness around the world… An underground cult that is still under the radar but will inevitably find world domination -or at least some form of tax evasion.

    So with the spicy taste still in his mouth, Dr Klangendum went and looked for some entities that could explain him the basics of Salamiism.

    Italian Salamist; Stefano Giannotti

    Scottish Salami Scientist; Jim Whelton

    One Bad Word Could Lead You To Hellfire; Sheikh Mansur Al-Salami

    Research; Silvia Scaglioni

    Text; LG Simonis, J Whelton

    Idea, music, editing; Dr Klangendum 2

    special thanks to Noodle Bar for Noodle Machine’s first assignment.

    more special thanks; FVP

    Lukas Simonis has his roots as an instrumentalist and musical 'activist' in the industrial music and noise rock of the Eighties (Throbbing Gristle, the Residents, Pere Ubu, Sonic Youth and beyond). Being a part of the Rotterdam jazzbunker scene (a collective that consisted of heavy drug induced punk rockers, freejazzers, early electronic musicians and pre-postrock combos) he discovered the delimited world of improvisation. In the meantime and after he played in bands like Dull Schicksal, Trespassers W, Morzelpronk, AA Kismet, Liana Flu Winks, VRIL, Stepmother, Perfect Vacuum and Coolhaven. At the same time he was/is organising concerts, events and films, first at the Jazzbunker in Rotterdam later on the Dissonanten festival, the Dissidenten festival, Popifilm, Dodorama , WORM, a multimedia centre for experimental art and finally stichting Klangendum since 2013.
    Nowadays he collaborates with lots of people from different backgrounds. For instance; Kruk (with Nina Hitz and Sato Endo), STEPMOTHER (with Jeroen Visser, Bill Gilonis and David Kerman), Jim Whelton (London), Ergo Phizmiz (UK), Dave Brown (Melbourne), The X Static Tics (with Henk Bakker and various others). Other people he worked with; Eugene Chadbourne (USA), Goh Lee Kwang (Kuala Lumpur), Bohman Brothers (UK), Anne La Berge (USA/NL), Faces (with Huib Emmer, NL), Peter Stampfel (USA), Eddie Prevost (UK), etc.

  • State of Slumber - DinahBird & JP Renoult

    1st September 2016 @ 11:00 pm - 10:00 am

    An eleven hour, non-stop, international sonic survey of snores, grunts, dribbling and whatever else we do as we slumber the night away. Recorded all over the world, from Paris to Tasmania, Copenhagen to Italy, and broadcast during Sao Paolo’s Biennale 2012.

    A State of Slumber is the first edition of the world snorescape project, a snorecast compiled and edited by DinahBird. It was produced for Knut Auferman and Sarah Washington’s Mobile Radio Sao Paolo, a three month radio art station created for the 30th São Paulo Biennial, 2012. It was also adapted as Snoring by Numbers (with JP Renoult) for an installation at the Cork Artists Collective Guesthouse (Ireland) in september 2013 and broadcast as a part of Mobile Radio’s Dubbelradio, a 24 hour two-frequency festival, Stockholm, Sweden, 2013, Anna Friz‘s the City at Night transmission project for Radio Cona and features as a part of her mix exploring the environment, morphology and taxonomy of the little people inside the radio for Radio Macba.

    Thanks to the sleeping souls who took part in the first ever (to my knowledge) snorescape : Valérie Vivancos, Julia Drouhin, Ward Weis, Etienne Noiseau, Carlo Giordani, JP Renoult, Rodolphe Alexis and Marianne Decoster-Taivalkoski.

    DinahBird and Jean-Philippe Renoult are sound and radio artists based in Paris. They often work together making radio works, installations and soundtracks.

    Recent works include Take Flight, a composed soundscape starring planes, drones and frequencies, made for ABC’s Creative Audio Unit and A.V.I.O.N, a sister installation inspired by the parallel world of aircraft navigation systems. DinahBird’s radio relay record A Box of 78s is having a rest after it’s 18 month trip around the world. Jean-Philippe’s audio graffitti project, TagAudioLoops was last seen and heard at Waverly train station....

  • Phobophonie

    2nd September 2016 @ 10:00 am - 10:30 am

    A collective noise research (trilingue)

    Sound-Artists & chercheurs quotidien Sylvie Dederichs und Marc Matter collected interviews and found-footage to produce this feature about Sounds, Bruits, Geräusche, that are annoying to people to the extent of phonic phobias. Be careful not to become phobic against this radio-collage itself after hearing it – there’s hardly any sounds that are hated by all people. Learn about the subjectivity and context concerning annoying sounds and phonophobia and try to ask yourself why you hate certain sounds and adore others, and: what a sound can do to you.

    Biography

    Sound Artist from Black Forrest, working mainly with turntables and effects. Active as a recording and performing artist as well as producing 'acoustic art' for radio-broadcasts. Involved in a few groups & projects, also active as a solo-artist recently, working on spoken-word and voicenoise. Coruns the Diskant label and is a Resident DJ at Salon des Amateurs Club.


  • Clear Spot

    Short works including:

    1) Chris Dooks - Beacons OST (15:12)

    2) Ian Helliwell - As The Legend Has It (2016, 6`55).

    Details:

    1) Chris Dooks, Alex Norris, Andy Conway - Beacons OST (1995)

    The film from which this soundtrack came (actually the soundtrack came first) won first prize Scotland's "Centenery Reels" competition in 1996 to celebrate "100 years of Cinema"

    Dr Chris Dooks (b.1971) is an Edinburgh-based interdisciplinary artist and academic researcher. In 1998 Dooks began to pursue his own works full time as a professional multimedia artist after directing arts programmes in his early career.

    His 2014 PhD is titled “The Fragmented Filmmaker – Emancipating The Exhausted Artist” and is both a text and a conceptual vinyl trilogy. The expansive project aimed to provide Dooks with a ‘container’ to house many sonic experiments in overcoming chronic health problems. On a more ‘Radiophonic’ level, in 2015 Eilean Records released Dooks’ first post-doctoral album ‘Accretion Disc’ which contains many shortwave radio works.

    2) Ian Helliwell - As The Legend Has It (2016, 6`55).

    A sound collage cut together with quarter inch magnetic tape. The editing of the audio is revealed as the tape travels through a tape machine, and a further visual element is provided via wave patterns of the soundtrack, videoed off a modified TV monitor. In the film version the viewer can watch all the quarter inch tape splices, and see how it was put together. The sound was also sent through a modified TV so that a waveform pattern visible as well. An excerpt from the film can be viewed here: https://vimeo.com/174248848

    Bio: Starting in the early 1990s, Ian has completed a variety of short experimental films exploring various themes, including sound visualisation, hand painting, abstraction, animation, video feedback, found footage and collage. He is particularly concerned with fusing his own specially composed electronic music with video and film, and continues to experiment with the synthesis of colour, image and experimental sound.

  • KG Augenstern - Tentacles

    2nd September 2016 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

    The artist group Augenstern (Christiane Prehn and Wolfgang Meyer) have lived and worked on the ship Anuschka for many years. In July 2014 the MS Anuschka left Berlin in the direction of Paris before reaching their final destination in the south of France in November 2014. On the way, the crew examined numerous bridges, spanning rivers and canals. Using tentacles installed on board to scratch the bridges, the ship turned into a sensitive, perceiving and sounding laboratory interacting with the territory. Each of the bridges passed has its personal soundprofile, created by its shape, its practical
    use and its way of construction. During the journey KG Augenstern presented audiovisual performances that could be observed and heard along the banks. Exhibitions of “Tentacles”- installations were shown in contemporary art spaces at Arles and Valence. A complete documentation of the sound recordings can be heard on the SoundWays application.

  • Chris Dooks - Storage Wars

    2nd September 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

    Storage Wars investigates a dilemma that many digital artists face; that is, the need to archive vast amounts of audio and visual material in the digital domain and whether to preserve material or not – a problem particularly pertinent to radio broadcasts and my relationship with the radio and arts festival The Dark Outside. This project was designed to bring to fruition the material from my archives that was spewing out of at least six hard drives begging to be shaped. I decided to make new works from this huge resource and delete every unused file that didn’t make the hour-long broadcast, for ever.

    Dr Chris Dooks (b.1971) is an Edinburgh-based interdisciplinary artist and academic researcher. In 1998 Dooks began to pursue his own works full time as a professional multimedia artist after directing arts programmes in his early career.

    His 2014 PhD is titled “The Fragmented Filmmaker – Emancipating The Exhausted Artist” and is both a text and a conceptual vinyl trilogy. The expansive project aimed to provide Dooks with a ‘container’ to house many sonic experiments in overcoming chronic health problems.

    1. Laurence Chan - Minima Maxima
    The audio sources for this composition are only ground hum and hiss (Minima) - audio artefacts that are considered undesirable in fidelity. They are glitched extensively, creating a varied sonic palette (Maxima).
    Bio: Audiovisual artist with a background in sound design and composition. Works maintain a strong focus in visual music, sound art and audioreactive visualisations. Currently developing and exploring areas of glitch aesthetics in a synchronous audiovisual realm - utilising a fusion of both analog and digital glitching methods.
    2. Gregory Kramer - Phoenix
    For Phoenix, I recorded the sound of a failing external hard drive (which contained most of my work) as I attempted to resuscitate it. The drive didn’t survive, but from its death was born the composition, Phoenix. Named after the mythical bird, which is born from the ashes of its predecessor, this piece was composed with recordings made with a telephone pick-up (induction coil) microphone. Exploring the hidden electronic world, the microphone picks up the sounds of various electromagnetic frequencies.
    gregorykramerstudio.com
    3. Wayne Mason - Quietly Burning Down Consciousness
    A short sound works made with a combination of actual instruments, plundered sounds, radio call in samples, and skewered spoken word. They all revolve around the concept of exploring inner space rather than outer space.
    http://brokenzen.wordpress.com/
    4. Mez Kerr Jones -
Ubiquitous Infrastructures in Bad Condition
    This piece was made for a public art project during my second year of degree(2015/16). It is a narration of a walk from our studio on West Graham Street to Bath Lane. The voice tells you of her memories of this place and how she feels it has changed. When making this piece I was interested in the collective experience of listening to a sound being played (or broadcasted) at the same time -­‐ the aural connection but spatial separation of individuals within urban surroundings. Maybe we have experienced the same occurrence but process it differently? I’d really like to walk the walk again with another group of people. For this project I asked everyone to download the track onto their phone/mp3 then we all hit ‘play’ at the same time. The idea of broadcasting a sound – everyone listening to it in the same moment really interests me.
    Bio:Mez studies Sculpture & Environmental Art at the Glasgow School of Art and enjoys examining the character of past places as they change. Through heterotopian journeys, which can manifest themselves as drawings, conversations film and audio, she hopes to explore how people share collective feeling about place. Mez teaches workshops at HMP Greenock Prison and this year has worked for visual arts festivals across the city.
    5. Peter Hawkey - The Passing of Time
    The track is composed of slow moving voices with a simple timbre. A small amount of saturation was increased in strategic places to create interesting dissonances as the voices slowly move from note to note. The piece was written for reflections of past decisions and actions, before moving forward with future choices.

    6. Andreas Oskar Hirsch_Summe - Kemeri 5 am
    Kemeri 5 am features nocturnal crane calls that Hirsch recorded on a bike trip in a swamp near Riga while he was busy with decoding bird messages via morse code. Opossum Pravda is dedicated to the tenacious marsupial that likes to wander around at night and which is able to hang from trees by its tail. Kautschukwaage seems to suggest an exotic setting and provides a link to the rubber bands which one hears resonating in the miniature.

    7. Dixie Treichel - Seventy-Three
    Seventy-Three is a radio art piece made from found sounds. Seventy-three means "best regards" in ham radio lingo. It aired on Dubbelradio-Stockholm; Audiograft Jukebox; MuseRuole - women in experimental music, -Radio Edition, Italy; various radio stations for Art's Birthday, and is heard in the Kunstradio, AB gift pool.

    8. Gonzalo Varela - Océanos
    "Océanos" ("Oceans", in Spanish) is a 2014 electroacoustic piece that explores theories of composer Henry Cowell (later used extensively by other composers such as Conlon Nancarrow) regarding the possibility of recreating the relationships between partials in a harmonic series by the means of complex polyrhythms (which components we could call "rhythmic harmonics" - and in this case each of which uses random fragments of a different recording), combined with the use of melodies played by digital instruments designed particularly for the piece. Each note played by the instruments is related to a specific rhythmic harmonic, and throughout the piece different melodies and harmonies cause the appearence of (and coexist with) specific polyrhythms. To me, the piece sounds like a very calm ocean-evoking imaginary soundscape.
    Composer, sound designer, guitarist and bass guitarist born in 1990 in Montevideo, Uruguay. Since 2011 I have been studying composition and guitar at the Escuela Universitaria de Música (University School of Music), in Montevideo, where I hold a position as a Harmony and Counterpoint student assistant since 2016. Works of mine have been played in concerts, festivals and workshops in Argentina, England, Mexico, Portugal, Scotland, United States, Uruguay and Wales, and I have written music for films, theatre plays and videogames. I have received awards and special mentions in composition, arrangement, recording and live show contests. As a performer I have taken part in several ensembles and choirs, recorded in released albums and a video DVD, and given over 250 concerts in Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay.
    9. Dganit Elyakim – Haihu #161-183
    “Cod++(e, a).choose” (Pronounced Code/Coda) consists of 5315 miniatures for a disklavier, electronically-generated sounds, ready-made audio samples and a text-to-speach application developed especially for this piece. The musical piece is rooted in Eran Hadas’ poetry book “Code”. This book was written by a code designed to uncover all the Haiku poems, hidden in The Torah. The musical piece echoes the book, where each miniature follows the meter of Haiku poems, each having the precise same length, adding up to a 372 minutes long music box.

    10. Volker Hennes - Ambassador 16
    From the album Emperor Ambassador. An exciter slowly glides down a tilted and unstretched drumhead which is affixed with a contact microphone whose signal is sent back to the exciter. Each kind of drumhead determines the distinct motion and response of the exciter, resulting in particular gliding speeds, feedback frequencies, dynamics and tonal progression. The gliding procedure on each drumhead is 
repeated and superimposed up to 20 times.

  • Iain Findlay-Walsh - Ri Ri

    2nd September 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm

    Ri Ri is a live performance/edit between field recordings and found recordings documenting Rihanna’s July 2016 concert at Hampden Park in Glasgow.

    Consisting of audio captured on the night of the Rihanna show, including ripped audio from youtube videos uploaded by Rihanna audience members after the fact, Ri Ri layers and redacts a range of recordings which trace the auditory perspectives of multiple listeners in relation to the same music event.

    The piece functions as the real-time broadcast of a (past) gig within a (present) gig, and as a way of exploring sound recordings as territorialising ambiences – fields in and through which sound might re-member listeners.

    Bio: Iain Findlay-Walsh
    …is a listening location where thoughts may emerge – a sometime sound artist and music producer who often uses recording and production practices to research relationships between everyday listening and subjecthood. Pieces are developed as reflexive self-narratives, ranging from cut-up soundscape compositions to idiosyncratic record releases, from public installations to audio-visual compositions. Work and research recently presented across the UK, Europe and in the USA.

  • Eggblood - Feral

    2nd September 2016 @ 2:30 pm - 3:00 pm

    Eggblood - Feral.

    Project - "Broken Cysm"

    Cutup/ Plundered work.

    The control mechanisms that micro manage the dissed-posesssed and the institutions that house humans with mental health disorders, learning difficulties and social exclusion (including animals). Awaiting referral turning feral forcing intervention.

    In relation to media companies who document and warp the language of societal opinion schism within the arse end of the edit. Turning the virtual tame in to a wild but lame accusing prism.

    The piece has an unnerving relentless pulse that accompanies the dialogue, even the absurdity of advertisements enter the despair and punctuate the ridicule of the subjects on display. Lost cats and hissing people...

  • Carrie Skinner - Victor, is there anyone there?

    2nd September 2016 @ 3:30 pm - 3:45 pm

    Carrie Skinner
    ‘Victor, is there anyone there?’

    The Australian radio production of ‘Frankenstein’ starring George Edwards in many of the roles was originally broadcast in thirteen parts on ‘2GB Radio’ Sydney in 1931. An unfaithful appropriation of Mary Shelley’s novel, the serial will be exhumed and rebroadcast over thirteen days. Listeners are invited to visit Creative Lab at the CCA at 3pm, 29th Aug -11th Sep (except 3rd Sep).

    Some-where/some-when an actor, their costume, a script and a prop. Someone is trying to get through to you. From the darkness of an imagined/invisible performance space, emerges the body of a voice. Hello? Who’s calling? A polymorphic interpolator talking over the radio, reaching over out of one blind space into another. Victor, is there anyone there?

    Biography:

    Carrie Skinner is a visual artist and undergraduate of the Glasgow School of Art, she completed an MLitt in Theatre Practices at Glasgow University in 2015. Her practice instinctively foregrounds thematic, structural and aesthetic devices emanating from a long standing engagement with the epic narratives of Gothic literature.


  • Isobel Anderson - These Places Should Only Ever Be Imagined

    2nd September 2016 @ 3:45 pm - 4:00 pm

    These Places Should Only Ever Be Imagined (2015) documents a week spent walking on the Isle of Harris, off the coast of Scotland. Through field recordings and an oral walking journal, the piece interrogates realities of remote locations amid their idealized associations of nature and wilderness. This work examines relationships of ruin and survival, the remote and the fetishized, body and decay and asks if solely imagining places of wilderness is preferential to inserting our human presence within them. These Places… was performed at CCA Glasgow’s Sound Thought Festival in March 2016.

    Isobel is a musician and sound artist from East Sussex, based in Belfast. Isobel has a BaHons Music degree from Dartington College of Arts and an MA and PhD in Sound Art from The Sonic Arts Research Centre, Queen’s University, Belfast. Her sound practice explores constructions of ‘place’ through language, walking, performance and field recording, and she has also released three studio albums of songs to date. Isobel’s work has been broadcast on BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 Music, and BBC Radio 3, and performances to date include The San Francisco Tape Music Festival, Glastonbury’s Acoustic Stage, and the Sound Thought Festival, CCA Glasgow.


  • Felix Kubin - A Portrait of Neil Feather

    2nd September 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 4:40 pm

    Sound Mechanic Neil Feather has been creating radical and unusual musical instruments since 1970 and is increasingly known as one of the most original musical thinkers of his day. His instruments each embody uniquely clever acoustic and engineering principles, and are visually arresting. The music he plays on the instruments is equally original, embodying new principles and resulting in a nearly alien idiom of music.In this programme he meets musician, composer and Hörspiel producer Felix Kubin.

    2nd September 2016 @ 4:40 pm - 5:00 pm

    . All the things we went and did. The student loans we were lucky enough to receive that we squandered. That 5 year abyss of the mid twenties you’re staring down the barrel at 28-and-a half-wishing to some kind of God that 30 would arrive, soon, and that it would bring with it some i-dea of what to do with yourself.

    Angharad Williams is a multi-disciplinary artist that was born in Bangor, Wales. She completed her MA in Fine Art at the Piet Zwart Institute.

  • DinahBird - The Music Machine

    2nd September 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 5:30 pm

    Lying silent in the corner of a tiny Paris flat is an ondioline, one of the first electronic synthesisers. This feature breathes life into the old machine, re-lives its glory days and discovers why the instrument is so important to its eccentric owner. A 28 minute experimental feature for BBC Radio4. First broadcast on 24th May 2004. Produced by DinahBird with a helping hand from Nigel Acheson “ A treat …the music’s odd and thrilling, the accents are as entertaining as the anecdotes and, as the French say, you will go to bed less stupid.” Phil Daoust, The Guardian.

    DinahBird is a sound and radio artist living and working in Paris. Her practice includes broadcasts, soundworks, installations and audio publications that are often inspired by early transmission technologies and archives. Recent commissions include A.V.I.O.N, a radio installation inspired by the world of aeronautics and Take Flight, a composed soundscape starring planes, drones and frequencies made with Jean-Philippe Renoult for ABC Australia’s Creative Audio Unit. Works have been produced for BBCRadio4 and 3, France Culture’s Atelier de Création Radiophonique, Resonance FM, Kunst Radio, Arteradio, through the Radia network, and have been presented at radio festivals in over twenty-five countries around the world.

  • Clear Spot

    2nd September 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 6:00 pm

    Short works including:

    1) Sarah Angliss - The Two Magicians (3:12)
    2) Pytchblend - Ephemeral Gold ft. Yawha (5:28)
    3) Guillaume Loizillon - Dadaphone (10:36)

    Details:

    1) Sarah Angliss - The Two Magicians

    'The Two Magicians' is an ancient English transmutation myth, in which two characters endlessly change form as they chase one another like predator and prey. Here it's reimagined using sounds from Luca Britannia, a masked wrestling club in Bethnal Green, London.

    Bio: Sarah Angliss is a composer, musical automatist and sound historian. Her work combines acoustic and robotic instruments with Max, electronics, found sounds and field recordings. Sarah’s work explores the uncanny properties of technology, revealing resonances between European folklore and early notions of electricity and sound. A prolific live performer, Sarah also works in theatre, creating distinctive sounds which blur the boundaries between sound design and musical composition. Her theatre sounds have most recently been heard in The Old Vic, London, where she evoked the overwhelming clamour of modernity in O’Neill’s Expressionist masterpiece The Hairy Ape (directed by Richard Jones).

    2) Pytchblend - Ephemeral Gold ft. Yawha

    “Languid she lay, on the kelp now a drying.
    Ashore on the sandbank, her fate there was waiting.
    Once soft salty-scales, now brittle and weathered,
    Sintered dry eyes, half-closed and tethered.
    Where dost thou go for escape.”

    Vocal on last two verses courtesy my great friend Éanna Butler from Shannon, Ireland (YaWha on Soundcloud).

    From the album - Sweat. Sketches from the biomechanical heart of England's bleak, industrial North West. Come with me now to the subconscious borderlands of sleep and wakefulness. Explore the sensory phantasmata of hypnagogic dreamlets. Feel static-like frisson sensations tingling down your spine. Join me on the journey into the heart of etherCore.

    3) Guillaume Loizillon - Dadaphone (10:36)

    This composition is a wandering in Paris in January 2016. We cross streets or places, which remind us in memory some personalities of Dada. The Marcel Duchamp, Tristan Tzara, Jean Arp streets, the Hausmann boulevard (which is not the one of Raoul !) and the quai Voltaire, far from the Zurich cabaret. In this Parisian soundscape, we meet Duchamp, Man Ray, Tzara, Max Ernst, and Raoul Hausmann who still reside in the city with their voices. Some foreign sounds were also clandestinely invited.
    The piece is thought as a phonomontage, tribute to the photomontages of Hanna Höch.

    Sonic elements:

    Parisian field recordings made in Paris (January 2016) : Guillaume Loizillon
    Various field recordings (River, insects in Athens, storm), electronic sounds : Guillaume Loizillon
    Extract of “Casse noisette” : Tchaikovski (Tchaikovski public garden goes along the Tristan Tzara street.)

  • Chris Dooks - Storage Wars

    2nd September 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

    Storage Wars investigates a dilemma that many digital artists face; that is, the need to archive vast amounts of audio and visual material in the digital domain and whether to preserve material or not – a problem particularly pertinent to radio broadcasts and my relationship with the radio and arts festival The Dark Outside. This project was designed to bring to fruition the material from my archives that was spewing out of at least six hard drives begging to be shaped. I decided to make new works from this huge resource and delete every unused file that didn’t make the hour-long broadcast, for ever.

    Dr Chris Dooks (b.1971) is an Edinburgh-based interdisciplinary artist and academic researcher. In 1998 Dooks began to pursue his own works full time as a professional multimedia artist after directing arts programmes in his early career.

    His 2014 PhD is titled “The Fragmented Filmmaker – Emancipating The Exhausted Artist” and is both a text and a conceptual vinyl trilogy. The expansive project aimed to provide Dooks with a ‘container’ to house many sonic experiments in overcoming chronic health problems. On a more ‘Radiophonic’ level, in 2015 Eilean Records released Dooks’ first post-doctoral album ‘Accretion Disc’ which contains many shortwave radio works.


  • Anne Lepère - Others

    2nd September 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 7:30 pm

    Freely inspired by "No Exit", a play by Jean-Paul Sartre, in this radio piece you will find three main characters : Two women and one sound (Sartre's voice included). These three are exchanging, meeting up at some point, irritating each others just after... some coalitions appearing, disappearing ... just like waves.

    It's all about alterity, and also how the other is shaping the image of yourself, and then how you want to shape the eye shaping your image...
    And then... surrendering ....
    Or maybe it's about another triangulation ... two different languages creating a new one;

    Between noise and silence ... a curious path about understanding ;
    Or maybe it is just about you and the other you
    Or maybe it is about me and my other me...

    Anne Lepère is currently living in Brussels. After her studies at l’IHECS (apply communication) she started working as production assistant for the Belgian National Radio show Par Ouï- Dire (La Première - RTBF), building up first hand experience in sound design and exploring related styles as well (field recording, sound art, radio art, radio drama, performance, experimental music). During the years she has worked for several other sound-related projects, Sounds of écodays (eco-festival at Flagey), Monophonic (Festival international de création radiophonique), the radio shows Moniek to name a few. She co-created Karaonomatopiek, a participative sound performance, performed in the Cinéma Galeries à Bruxelles and at Centre Pompidou (BPI) à Paris (2015). Today she is continuing to work at her own creations, where the use of voice is very often chosen as to start from a more intimate point before opening up to a larger frame. Her work has been diffused in Belgium (La Première, Musiq3, Radio Panik, Radio Campus,...), as well as in Europe and beyond (réseau radia.fm, Nova Rté Lyrics), ou lors d’évènements : Kinokophone (New-York), Süden Radio (Berlin / Radio Papesse), Flagey, Centre Culturel Le Brass (Bruxelles), Grand Prix Nova (Roumanie).

    Currently she is exploring the relation between Danse & Sounds, ways of co-construction, following a research program with Choreographers (Prototype - Royaumont - France)

  • Kate Carr - Scottish Highlands Soundscape

    2nd September 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 8:00 pm

    A long 20 minute mix incorporating many recordings taken from all locations I worked in Scotland: Fochabers, Gordons Castle (fences and ponds), Portknockie (several locations), Lossiemouth (several locations, and underwater), Elgin, The woolen loom, Knockando. Includes busker playing guitar Elgin mall.

    Kate Carr’s work explores our complex and contradictory relationship with the natural world. Her music blurs the boundaries between instruments and field recordings, underlining the intersections and overlaps between nature and culture and the myriad of incomplete ways we attempt to make sense of these terms. It explores place and non-place, being and imagining.

  • Home Handover 1 - Éric La Casa & Jean-Luc Guionnet

    2nd September 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

    In 2010, we, Éric La Casa and Jean-Luc Guionnet, were invited to the "Uninstal" festival in Glasgow, for the purpose of participating in an exchange of ideas on the relationships of art to a given society and working on the format of this questioning. We decided to reactivate our Maison [home] Project (begun in 2001), and to create a series of recordings with some inhabitants of Glasgow, in their personal spaces. Based on predefined rules, including the single-sequence shot as a filming method, the five people who accepted our experiment at home became the actors in a story about their everyday life. On that occasion, while searching for a space’s individual resonance, which has always motivated our collaboration, we drifted toward an expansion of the field and we sought to re-examine the vernacular dimensions of everyday life, while considering music and the voice to be a catalyst of the living environment — a way to strike a chord (accord), in all senses of the term.

    Here, we present this composition under the form of a score that possibly could be performed by others, in other places, in other contexts, while also believing that the stakes of our labor will reveal themselves more directly in the course of this process than they would from a description evoked by an external point of view.

    Biography

    Eric La Casa - For approximately 20 years, while listening to the environment, he has been questioning the perception of reality and has expanded the notion of what’s musical today. Through his aesthetic of capturing sound, his work fits equally into the fields of sound art and music. As a result of his in-situ listening processes, he creates forms (of attention) that creep into the venues, slowly infuse there,
    and become other possible spaces. In the same way that the letter stimulates a country’s reading, the in situ aesthetic object renews our relationship to space and landscape.

    Jean-Luc Guionnet - musician, visual artist, Thinking through sound, acting: It’s a matter of encountering an exterior — an instrument (organ/saxophone), a theoretical question (what is rumor?), a collaborating friend ... From there follow an open series and an explosion of themes that reinject themselves into practice: thickness of the air, darkness inherent to listening, pidgin, sound as the signature of what it’s not, or even the relationship of time that elapses with the current weather. And the emotion that’s sought as being created from the friction among all these strata to give time.

  • Joe Coghill - Who is John Margotti?

    2nd September 2016 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm

    John Margotti is a name that will be unfamiliar to most. Margotti is believed to have been involved in a diverse selection of creative/disruptive projects and artist-led initiatives during the 1970’s, 80’s and early 90’s however he has remained largely illusive in profile often operating under false names and pseudonyms. These projects range from the illegal bootlegging and distribution of cassette tapes around downtown New York with a loose group of artists who identified under the name "Infinity-nineteen" to face-melting sonic performances in which Margotti and his band “Invisible Maggot” used industrial machinery to create a noise so ferocious in amplitude it is said to have made noses bleed. Margotti was an advocate and activist for the decentralisation of publishing platforms and emancipating media distribution from the hands of corporate entities and advertising agencies.

    Joe is a multi-disciplinary artist, musician and experimental publisher based in Edinburgh, Scotland. His practice explores cultural production within a post-conceptual context and incorporates sound, video, performance and media distribution. He is the co-founder of Aufheben Cassette, an experimental sound art and music platform designed to enable the distribution of conceptual sonic projects which engage media publishing in a creative and forward thinking way. Aufheben Cassette is the product of a long term collaboration with artist, musician and friend Brandon Nightingale.

    Details:

    1. Sunnstede - (I Have) Eyes to Feel, Heart to See

    Feelings, thoughts and ideas often reveal themselves to me in the shape of small units of two or three words. Neither lyrics nor poetry, the text in this sound work is a collage of those fragmentary thoughts put together using the cut-up technique. It is an internal dialogue crafted like an incantation, a ritual, a personal mantra.

    Bio: Experimenting is the core driver of my work.
    French underground artist, I fell in love with music at an early age by discovering my brother's drum kit. After experiencing many instruments (trumpet, bugle, cavalry trumpet, guitar, bass guitar, keyboards…) and playing in several bands, I decided to find and craft my own sound. Through years, I expanded the concept of 'instrument' to the whole physical world, and began to use all kinds of noise sources (animals, people, objects…) to create songs.

    2. The Renovation Generation - Nam Lu

    A series of sonic portraits from Vietnam meeting the young minds re-imagining their country’s future. Travel to the other side of the world to learn about the young artists who are re-defining their country, in unprecedented times of peaceful prosperity. These Vietnamese are living lives that were merely a dream thirty years previously.
    Growing up in a one-party Communist state, we hear the Renovation Generations’ personal narratives: about love, boundaries, parents, and freedom, yet part of a universal discourse, in the dawn of the digital revolution and increasing globalization. Weaving together on-location interviews with sound design inspired by the city and current musical landscape, these portraits transport the listener to one of the fastest-growing cities in South East Asia.

    Bio: The Renovation Generation is a collaboration between radio producers Eliza Lomas and Fabiola Buchele, who were trained in the UK but have been living in Hanoi for over three years, and local Hanoians' and researchers Trang Ngo, Maia Ngo and Trang Nghiem.

    3. Craig Dongoski and Robert Scott Thompson - A Meteorite Wrapped in a Discarded Corner

    Bio: Craig Dongoski is a Full Professor at Georgia State University in Atlanta, Georgia USA. Dongoski’s has been exploring and articulating the mark in its most basic form (both graphically and aurally) for much of his career. The intention is that through varied interpretations of the marks that a contribution is made to the art historical dialogue within the origin of human expression. Professor Dongoski has performed and produced work each year on the island of Kefalonia, Greece since 2011. He also has a considerable body of work, entitled The Primates NoteBook, employing his drawing-sound experiments and innovations in tandem with chimpanzees through the Language Research Center in Atlanta, Georgia. He was twice nominated for a Ford/Rockefeller Foundation Fellowship in New Media. Dongoski also has released CD’s on Hydra Head Records and Aucourant Records. In 2015 he directed an important improvisation collaboration with filmmaker Larry Clark resulting in a limited press LP entitled Drawing Through. He is represented by WhiteSpace gallery in Atlanta, Georgia.

    4. Dorota Blaszczak - Recorded to tape: Warszawa

    Digitization of audio archives is a time machine for recorded on tapes, sounds and words, from the past of people, places, cities. The tape recorder, a digitization tool, play the sounds back and liberate them. It can rewind and transform sound into rapid streams. It can find the words. Warszawa. It can stop. Silence. This short piece was prepared as “audio image from Warsaw” for a set of several audio composition (http://www.nfm.wroclaw.pl/component/nfmcalendar/event/3383). Polish name of Warsaw appears in the title on purpose. It’s there on tape and you can hear it in Polish in the recording.

    Bio: Sound engineer in Polish Radio Archives in Warsaw, assistant at the Sound Engineering Department of the University of Music. She teaches Interactive Sound courses, works with sound restoration and development of Multimedia Database of the Archives, and creates interactive projects. She worked with various sound production for film and contemporary music concerts. She had designed sound for early computer games. She used to work in Canada as sound designer for VR projects in The Banff Centre for the Arts. She worked on sound for Char Davies Osmose and Ephemere virtual environments.

    5. Jules Bryant - Monoliths

    An audio representation of three-dimensional monoliths. The piece contains a single note bowed on an electric guitar. This is then constructed into 3 dimensional shapes represented by 3 pitch variations. The effects and interactions that can be heard throughout the piece represent the light and shadow of the objects that dance around one another.
    Biography: Jules Bryant is a composer and sound artist who works with a wide range of instruments and sound sources. His work could be described as minimalist, using simple structures and effects to draw out and uncover interesting features within. His pieces make use of the quality of instrument sounds and as the composer he seeks to frame them appropriately for presentation to the audience.

    6. Mia Kukathasan - The First Thing, A Pen

    A Rorschach test for the ears, ‘The First Thing, A Pen’ is a collection of three short experimental audio pieces (12 minutes in total) exploring words and the spaces between them. The process of production is exposed, words spoken out of context and sounds processed beyond recognition, inviting the listener to construct new meaning.

    Bio: Mia Kukathasan is a radio enthusiast and occasional producer of audio works exploring themes of identity and out-groups. She’s also a volunteer at London’s Resonance FM.

    7. Jeff Kolar - Wind Chimes

    Wind Chimes is a multichannel, wind powered sound installation composed for prepared copper wind chimes and custom electronics. Wind Chimes will be installed outdoors hanging from tree limbs on the 1700 block of South Laflin Street in Chicago, United for July 1 – July 29, 2016.

    Bio: Jeff Kolar is a sound artist, radio producer, and curator. He is the Founder and Artistic Director of Radius, an experimental radio broadcast platform established in 2010. His work, which has been described as “speaker-shredding” (Half Letter Press), “wonderfully strange” (John Corbett), and “characteristically curious” (Marc Weidenbaum), activates sound in unconventional, temporary, and ephemeral ways using appropriation and remix as a critical practice. His solo and collaborative projects, installations, and public performances often investigate the mundane sonic nuances of everyday electronic devices.

  • The Tonic Garden - Mark Vernon & Ian Middleton

    3rd September 2016 @ 12:00 am - 2:30 am

    The Tonic Garden: A Sonic Survey of Soothing Sounds

    Produced by Mark Vernon and Ian Middleton

    The Tonic Garden was the first programme in the Bedside Radio series produced for Forth Valley Royal’s hospital radio station, Radio Royal. It was designed as an ambient radio piece with patients suffering from insomnia or tinnitus in mind. The voice interviews were initially intended just as research in this survey of soothing sounds but the descriptions and reasoning behind the choices ended up becoming an intrinsic part of the work itself. Field recordings and bespoke music are combined with voices to create a kind of aural survey polling the sounds that were found to be the most relaxing. The Tonic Garden reflects the range of sounds suggested by staff at Forth Valley Royal Hospital, Radio Royal volunteers, the FDAMH media group and the public at large.

    This programme features original music and field recordings created by Mark Vernon and Ian Middleton.

    Produced as part of an 18-month digital arts residency at Forth Valley Royal Hospital, Larbert.

    1. Tom Miller - Spectral Wars

    (a.k.a. Comrade Squelch) Interval signals are short, repeating radio transmissions which allow shortwave listeners to tune their antennas to distant stations. Repetitive fragments of melody, speech, birds, animals, or other signals are broadcast periodically to identify stations, time the starting and stopping of programs, and hold down frequencies against rivals. In conflict zones, interval signals can overtly carry covert political messages across national borders. Some of the signals heard in this mix were originally broadcast from the occupied territories and liberation fronts of past wars. At times, both official state-sponsored and clandestine rebel broadcasts may be captured across the waves of static drift.

    Bio: Tom Miller, a National Endowment for the Arts award-winning composer and librettist, has created sound installations, radio art, and music-theatre for the American Anthropological Association, American Museum of Natural History, Anchorage Museum, Art in General, Bates College, Cities and Memory, Ethnographic Terminalia, Franklin Furnace, Linden State Museum of Ethnology, Proteus Gowanus, P.S. 122, Pulse of the Planet, WFMU-FM, WKCR-FM, and more. He holds a B.A. in Music from Wesleyan and Ph.D. in Anthropology from Columbia University, and has taught at New York University’s Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music, Pratt Institute, Rutgers University, Berkeley College, and the University of Iceland.

    2. Julian Scordato - Earth song

    Low frequency radio waves propagating in the Earth's atmosphere, ionosphere and magnetosphere assume distinct characteristics in relation to emitting source as well as receiving point. Considering the electromagnetic radiations generated by natural disturbances, the author aimed at transposing the above phenomena into an audio feedback network in order to explore the effect of space-time parameter variation. The simple delay combined with filtering permits to place sounds in new spatial configurations, while the spectral delay modifies the sounds in their structure. The result is a kaleidoscope of sounds floating in a dynamic system with ever-changing variations.

    Bio: Julian Scordato studied Composition and Electronic Music at the Venice Conservatory of Music. He completed a Master's Degree in Sound Art at the University of Barcelona. Co-founding member of the Arazzi Laptop Ensemble, he has worked as a Research Assistant for the Sound and Music Processing Lab at the Padua Conservatory of Music. As an author and speaker, Scordato has participated in conferences presenting results related to interactive performance systems, generative art, and feedback audio networks. His electroacoustic music and audiovisual works have been performed/exhibited in prestigious festivals and institutions in Europe, North America, South America, and Asia.

    3. Svantje Lichtenstein - Echo Enjoys

    The piece is based on a text of mine about the myth of the nymph Echo and the words Ovid is describing her. It is at the same time a text, which is using the sound of the words to transfer the meaning as well, and how I receive the text if I would read and listen a text in English or German. Echo damned to only repeat the words of other, so she uses

    4. Craig Dongoski & Robert Scott Thompson – The Sleeping Hostage

    Poised somewhere between ambient music and avant-garde acousmatics, Orbital Lullaby presents an enveloping and mezmerizing sonic montage of over 75 minutes. Highly immersive and hypnogogic listening from two acknowledged masters of sonic art.

    Craig Dongoski is a Full Professor at Georgia State University in Atlanta, Georgia USA. Dongoski’s has been exploring and articulating the mark in its most basic form (both graphically and aurally) for much of his career. The intention is that through varied interpretations of the marks that a contribution is made to the art historical dialogue within the origin of human expression. Professor Dongoski has performed and produced work each year on the island of Kefalonia, Greece since 2011. He also has a considerable body of work, entitled The Primates NoteBook, employing his drawing-sound experiments and innovations in tandem with chimpanzees through the Language Research Center in Atlanta, Georgia. He was twice nominated for a Ford/Rockefeller Foundation Fellowship in New Media. Dongoski also has released CD’s on Hydra Head Records and Aucourant Records.

    7. Nick Kuepfer - Absorbing

    manual tape edit with percussion; exploring rhythm with randomness using concepts inspired by the sounds of wildlife, the act of creating rhythms and melodies from the collection of sound within an environment. While listening to one's surroundings in nature you begin to hear the communication of sounds following no perceived human concepts of rhythm, on closer listen you begin to hear patterns and cohesion of sounds - this piece attempts to re-create these concepts using percussion and bells.

    Bio: Nick Kuepfer is a Montréal-based musician and sound artist (born and raised in Stratford, Ontario). As a solo musician he arranges and produces experimental multi instrumental pieces with live sampled tape loops, field recordings, static repetition, and drones with a tendency for experimentation of sound, texture and dissonance. In addition he has performed solo internationally and has collaborated with many musicians as tour support as well as an active member in the groups ¼ Tonne, Hrsta and formerly Elfin Saddle, No Nature and Aidswolf. His sound work has been exhibited in various galleries including The Tom Thomson Art gallery in Owen Sound, Ontario, New Adventures in Sound Art in Toronto, Modern Fuel Artist Run Centre in Kingston, Ontario, Algoma Art Gallery in Sault Ste. Marie, Gallery Stratford in Stratford, Ontario. He attended the artist residency program, The Arctic Circle in Svalbard in 2012.

    “Languid she lay, on the kelp now a drying.

    4. Andrea Oskar Hirsch_Summe 1 - 6 Summe 1

    After numerous concerts and performances throughout the last years, Summe 1 is Andreas O. Hirsch‘s first release on makiphon. The album concentrates on peculiar soundscapes and drony pieces, carefully interwoven by means of pitched harmonicas, electric guitars, mini fans, delays and the electric palm leaf, an electroacoustic invention of the artist. The eight titles evoke a space somewhere between interstellar geography (Maxwell Mountains – a plateau on planet Venus), abstract physics (Teilchenbeschleuniger), botanical scenery and animality: Kemeri 5 am features nocturnal crane calls that Hirsch recorded on a bike trip in a swamp near Riga while he was busy with decoding bird messages via morse code. Opossum Pravda is dedicated to the tenacious marsupial that likes to wander around at night and which is able to hang from trees by its tail. Kautschukwaage seems to suggest an exotic setting and provides a link to the rubber bands which one hears resonating in the miniature. Sleeve designed by the artist. 300 copies. Mastered by Joseph Suchy.

    Andreas Oskar Hirsch (DE) works as a musician and visual artist. He has been inventing various musical instruments that he performs with, among others, the Electric Palm Leaf that produces sounds through its spikes. Moreover, by connecting melodicas to the air chambers of a rubber boat or decoding bird calls via Morse code, he investigates sound, setups, narratives and performative processes and pushes them to a point where frenzy, humor, sense, and nonsense meet. In 2014, together with Patricia Koellges, he started makiphon, a record label for experimental music.

    5. Douglas Hedwig - TransSonic Awakenings in D

    Before the advent of the Internet, short-wave radio broadcasts brought sounds and ideas from around the world to anyone with a radio and antennae. TranSonic Awakenings in D is an electro-acoustic composition in three sections, inspired by the fascinating, and often mysterious sounds and diverse languages associated with short-wave radio broadcasts and audio transmissions. The opening of the work thrusts the listener into an alternate sound/space/time dimension, a world organized and experienced through the medium of radio waves. Before digital tuning in receivers, manual tuning of radio frequencies was necessary. So, interspersed throughout this section we hear a pastiche of tuning sounds over a bed of tonal pulsation. For the middle section, the composer has recorded fragments of radio “call-signs,” typically used at the start and end of scheduled short- wave broadcast cycles; in this case, from Argentina. The final section begins with another immediate thrust back into the alternate world in which the work started, but this time, out of the cacophony of sound we hear the reassuring sound of Medieval church bells in central Italy with which the composition concludes.

    Bio: Composer Biography
Composer Douglas Hedwig was a trumpet player with the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra (Lincoln Center, NYC) for 27 years, performing and recording with the finest conductors and soloists in the world. Since turning his full attention to composition in 2011 he has enjoyed considerable and growing success, with recent performances in the U.S.A. at the Blossom Music Festival, and New Music on the Bayou Contemporary Music Festival. He is currently completing a multi-movement String Quintet, commissioned by the Chattanooga Symphony Orchestra, which is scheduled for premiere in 2017. Other recent commissions and compositions include works for brass quintet, organ and percussion, concert band, and solo trumpet, as well as electronic and electro-acoustic music. Several of his compositions are published by Carl Fischer Music (NYC), and TRN Music Publishers (NM).
    Dr. Hedwig is Professor Emeritus at The City University of New York (USA), and previously served on the faculty of The Juilliard School. He is a recipient of awards and grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board, and the City Council of the City of New York.

    6. Danhua Ma - Conversation with Trees

    I try to arouse a soundscape dealing with separation and unification between human and trees. People may say something like,” we can’t hear trees.” How do trees take account of the auditory aspect? Technically, I attached a contact microphone on a random tree that finally I got teeny tiny vibrations from the tree and formed squeaky sound within human hearing range. In "Conversation with Trees," I created two levels' transitions in order to hold the whole piece tight. The first transition is hearing the sound of a tree. The second transition is how to initiate a conversation with trees that listeners will be captivated by their auditory experience.

  • Gregory Whitehead - Crazy Horse One-Eight and other boneyard cantatas

    3rd September 2016 @ 6:00 am - 7:00 am

    CRAZY HORSE ONE-EIGHT and other boneyard cantatas

    IN THE END (2012)
    BRAVO ECHO (2013)
    INDIA ALPHA MIKE (2013)
    CRAZY HORSE ONE-EIGHT (2014)
    in memory of those killed, based on the transcript of the “collateral murder” video
    AS WE KNOW (2014)
    based on a remark by Donald Rumsfeld

    The boneyard cantatas emerge from my understanding of radio as a space of decay, acoustic relics and fossils, some of them my own, ossified fragments from discarded voice experiments. In the digital world, mathematics provides a seductive cover for the reality of a more murky electromagnetic miasma, just beneath the surface. Radio makes public the boneyard of our own human consciousness, and I am fascinated how electrical impulses jump the gap between the living and the dead, whether inside our heads and out into the airwaves. Radio often serves as a weapon, and as an instrument of command and control; yet radio also carries the utopian aspiration for community, the breath of ecstatic connection. The same finger that tickles the ribs can pull the trigger -- or drop the needle. Radio and the phonograph have a deep connection, both historically and culturally, and I am fascinated by the the strange jumpy pulses between those liberating needles and the carved grooves that create a spiral of release. Finally, there is the entanglement between radio and codes or ciphers intended to save, seek or destroy. Yet the nature of intelligence is not exempt from the laws of entropy, and even the most immaculate encryptions eventually dissolve into the ultimate unknown unknown.

    GREGORY WHITEHEAD has created more than one hundred radio plays, essays and acoustic adventures for the BBC, Radio France, Australia’s ABC, NPR and other broadcasters. Often interweaving documentary and fictive materials into playfully unresolved narratives, Whitehead’s aesthetic is distinguished by a deep philosophical commitment to radio as a medium for poetic navigation and free association. In his voice and text-sound works, he has often explored the tension between a continuous pulse and the eruption of sudden discontinuities, as well as linguistic disintegration and decay. As a vocalist, he has performed as both soloist and chorister in a wide variety of ensembles since his days as a boy soprano.

    An audio interpretation of a passage from Finnegans Wake by James Joyce. This work deals with the transition from the last chapter to the first, since 'The Wake' is a circular book. The work has been made by Brasilian artist Mariana Lanari and Dutch sound artist Sjoerd Leijten for the Waywords and Meansigns project by Derek Pyle. For this project Pyle invited artists to make audio interpretations of the different chapters of the wake leading to a complete audio rendition of the book. Together with artist Katinka de Jonge Mariana and Sjoerd formed an 'audiovisual narration band' performing different passages from the wake. Using an aquarium, electroacoustic improvisation and words to create a faithfully unfaithful renarration of the book.

    3. The Renovation Generation – Duong
    A series of sonic portraits from Vietnam meeting the young minds re-imagining their country’s future. Travel to the other side of the world to learn about the young artists who are re-defining their country, in unprecedented times of peaceful prosperity. These Vietnamese are living lives that were merely a dream thirty years previously. Growing up in a one-party Communist state, we hear the Renovation Generations’ personal narratives: about love, boundaries, parents, and freedom, yet part of a universal discourse, in the dawn of the digital revolution and increasing globalization. Weaving together on-location interviews with sound design inspired by the city and current musical landscape, these portraits transport the listener to one of the fastest-growing cities in South East Asia.

    Bio: The Renovation Generation is a collaboration between radio producers Eliza Lomas and Fabiola Buchele, who were trained in the UK but have been living in Hanoi for over three years, and local Hanoians' and researchers Trang Ngo, Maia Ngo and Trang Nghiem.

    My name is Matthew Byrd. I study music and literature with my time as a janitor in Indiana. I've grown up here as a musician in isolation, cast out by my mentors for being either dangerous or condescending, I have no context, and I think it spurs me. I've gotten out a bit and Francisco Lopez and La Monte Young have spurred me to be heard. I'm researching (nosing around) a nanotechnology center and wondering if it's an opera I'm making.


  • Found Sound Answering Machines - Episode 3 - John Morin

    3rd September 2016 @ 7:30 am - 8:00 am

    Found Sound Answering Machines is a series of analog recordings gathered from answering machine tapes found at thrift stores, estate sales and junk piles. In the rush to embrace new technology, we frequently discard the old outdated models just as fast without considering what personal memories and left-behind, intimate moments they might contain.

    Radio Eyes is an active listening project by California-based sound artist John Morin that seeks to explore the potentiality of personal sonic space and offers new ways of seeing and hearing the world around us. The work reminds us that if seeing is believing, than what we hear can be unbelievable.

    1. David Cowlard - Parnell Rise II

    This work is a remix of field recordings made between Britomart Station and the steep incline of Parnell Rise in Auckland, New Zealand. The sounds have been reworked to emphasise the distinctive locational based soundscape. Until June 2015 Auckland Transport ran ageing DF class diesel locomotives, made by General Motors Canada on many of the urban and suburban rail routes through the city. As the DF’s strained to haul up the inclines they produced a very specific sound signature. These sounds, reverberating off the surrounding urban fabric, played a significant part in defining the spatial experiences of the city.

    Bio: David Cowlard is a filmmaker, field recordist and urbanist with a particular interest in exploring how moving image and recorded sound can inform a wider critical engagement with architecture and the built environment. David teaches in the Photo Media Dept. at Whitecliffe College of Arts & Design, Auckland, New Zealand and is a Professional Teaching Fellow at the University of Auckland’s School of Architecture & Planning.

    Bio: Anne, (b.1985) is currently living in Brussels. After her studies at l’IHECS (apply communication) she started working as production assistant for the Belgian National Radio show Par Ouï- Dire (La Première - RTBF), building up first hand experience in sound design and exploring related styles as well (field recording, sound art, radio art, radio drama, performance, experimental music). During the years she has worked for several other sound-related projects, Sounds of écodays (eco-festival at Flagey), Monophonic (Festival international de création radiophonique), the radio shows Moniek to name a few. She co-created Karaonomatopiek, a participative sound performance, performed in the Cinéma Galeries à Bruxelles and at Centre Pompidou (BPI) à Paris (2015). Today she is continuing to work at her own creations, where the use of voice is very often chosen as to start from a more intimate point before opening up to a larger frame. Her work has been diffused in Belgium (La Première, Musiq3, Radio Panik, Radio Campus,...), as well as in Europe and beyond (réseau radia.fm, Nova Rté Lyrics), ou lors d’évènements : Kinokophone (New-York), Süden Radio (Berlin / Radio Papesse), Flagey, Centre Culturel Le Brass (Bruxelles), Grand Prix Nova (Roumanie).

    5. Marcus Webb - Ant Hill

    Ant Hill is a composition using guitars, found objects and Ableton Live.

    Bio: Marcus Webb - Composer & Sound Designer - Webb's strength as a sound designer as well as audio artist/composer is in the wide range of musical genres and art that he draws inspiration from for his craft and how he uses this to create an exciting sound environment that is original and fresh. While moving between the sonic realms of noir, pastoral, gothic, eastern, classic and modern, Marcus Webb (formally known as Michelle Webb) creates textural sound environments influenced by everything from instrumental 50's and 60's guitar twang Americana to global psychedelic music, 80's synth / soundtrack culture to 90's shoegazing, dub and various forms of electronic music.
    Marcus Webb studied music with guitar great Thomas Newman and Ted Dunbar and attended Oberlin Conservatory. Returning to New York he pursued a musical career working alternately as a recording studio assistant, session musician and club DJ and building up his chops as a composer and sound designer in the San Francisco, Washington DC and Southern New Mexico. Webb’s compositions live in the landscape of an all encompassing American music skyline and conjures up images of everything from b-movie classics and big sky country all the while enveloped in a sea of electronic texture.

  • Mary Farfisas Outer Space Radio Theater - Jim Cheff

    3rd September 2016 @ 9:30 am - 10:00 am

    I have been writing and producing a weekly series of musical science fiction radio plays for children. They are broadcast on Radio Sunnyside, 101.5 FM, here in my hometown of Flagstaff Arizona. The show is called "Mary Farfisa's Outer Space Radio Theater."

    Mary Farfisa is an eight-year-old space-girl who travels the Galaxies on her space-horse, Briscoe. Mary goes from planet to planet, searching for “songs and sounds and music and noise” to share with the rest of the Universe. Mary catches the songs and sounds and music and noise in her “audio lasso.” Then she brings them to the Listener’s Library – an intergalactic collection of sounds, curated by music-loving super-beings called the Listeners.

    Mary’s adventures are exciting, funny and fun. But each episode also teaches something about a certain style of music, or deals with some aspect of learning music that kids can relate to.

    The show was created by me. I write, produce (and even act!) in every episode. Original music and sound effects are created for each episode. The art and posters that accompany each show are painted by me. The plays are performed by local actors and musicians, like Cara Alboucq, who plays the role of Mary Farfisa.

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

    Details:

    1) Judith Browning - Chuggy Gum

    Writing is my primary medium but I work across performance, audio, video and print as editing strategies that allow me to investigate what happens when the same thing is done in different ways. My work draws from formal paradigms associated with staged and self conscious presentations. Recently I have used institutional platforms (such lecture halls, research conferences and symposiums) and, by contrast, oneonone “intimate” performances to question subtle power relations.

    Radio as a mode of presentation investigates an intimate and physically fragmented space of listening and receiving. The recorded audio is played through a personal device, probably within a domestic or personal setting. I want consider the body’s relationship to this type of language, how these discourses are found in everyday life and embodied. I’m interested in the weight, proliferation and flavor of a particular type of language which takes up a lot of space without communicating much content. The text, some of which is reappropriated, none of which feels like a nutritious thing to have in my body, is a sticky material.

Instead of reproducing about artists, recompose it in the universe from the " er ", " Hmmm ," mouth noises and other hesitations that usually infect the text. This minute is a partition without verb that suggests beyond the words of their authors.

    Winter 2009, fifteen episodes of minutes of silence, open and close daily Antenna Resonance FM , London. They include: Charlemagne Palestine , Christian Marclay , Coldcut , Gavin Bryars , George Clinton, Luc Ferrari, Martin Tetreault , Matthew Herbert , Melvin Van Peebles, Otomo Yoshiide , The Residents , Pierre Henry …All the material I use is taken from my own interviews archives, with the exception of one : the magic interview with Albert Ayler, directed by my radio mentor and friend Daniel Caux in 1970 in St Paul de Vence.

    3) Sarah Angliss - Cow Heart Pin

    Bio: Sarah Angliss is a composer, musical automatist and sound historian. Her work combines acoustic and robotic instruments with Max, electronics, found sounds and field recordings. Sarah’s work explores the uncanny properties of technology, revealing resonances between European folklore and early notions of electricity and sound. A prolific live performer, Sarah also works in theatre, creating distinctive sounds which blur the boundaries between sound design and musical composition. Her theatre sounds have most recently been heard in The Old Vic, London, where she evoked the overwhelming clamour of modernity in O’Neill’s Expressionist masterpiece The Hairy Ape (directed by Richard Jones).

  • Kate Carr - Scottish Highlands Soundscape

    3rd September 2016 @ 11:00 am - 11:30 am

    A long 20 minute mix incorporating many recordings taken from all locations I worked in Scotland: Fochabers, Gordons Castle (fences and ponds), Portknockie (several locations), Lossiemouth (several locations, and underwater), Elgin, The woolen loom, Knockando. Includes busker playing guitar Elgin mall.

    Kate Carr’s work explores our complex and contradictory relationship with the natural world. Her music blurs the boundaries between instruments and field recordings, underlining the intersections and overlaps between nature and culture and the myriad of incomplete ways we attempt to make sense of these terms. It explores place and non-place, being and imagining.

  • Peggy Nelson - A Field in Iceland

    3rd September 2016 @ 11:30 am - 12:00 pm
    Iceland

    A field in Iceland — it's a composite, as are all things. Contact mics on birch branches, fence wires, antennae; hydrophones buried in a black sand beach; the faint doppler of a single car on a road in the middle distance, in the not-quite-dusk of a late early night. Icebergs melting and crinkling in a freezing lagoon; plovers and snipe rolling in the air. Added in from elsewhere are earworms from Newcastle and Greenwich, as well as glitched-up phrases of voices misheard.

    Peggy Nelson is a new media artist and writer who works in film, sound, and social media. Peggy’s work has been featured in Boston CyberArts, The Boston Globe’s Brainiac column, Ladyfest (LA), San Francisco’s ATA Gallery, the Conflux Festival in Brooklyn, BASIC.fm, Shiraz Art House (Iran) and The Dark Outside at the Wigtown Book Festival; and her articles have appeared in Berfrois, Craig Baldwin's OtherZine, Nieman Storyboard at Harvard University, and HiLobrow, where she was previously Arts Editor. Her films have shown at SXSW, the Santa Cruz Film Festival, the Dallas Video Festival, and on TV.

  • DinahBird & JP Renoult - What You See

    3rd September 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm

    What You See is the third sound work Dinah & Jean-Philippe have made inspired by aerial disappearances and crashes. In June 2016 during a residency in Kilpisjarvi, Northern Finland, they came across the crash site of a WWII German Junker bomber plane, brought down in the midst of the bleak Arctic landscape in 1942. Over seventy years later remnants of the aircraft are clearly visible, possible wing parts, piping and rusty metal are fused and fossiled into the stony lunar landscape, like a decaying dinosaur carcass, or perhaps a forgotten memorial to those who perished. The recordings in this piece were made almost entirely on site.

    DinahBird and Jean-Philippe Renoult are sound and radio artists based in Paris. They often work together making radio works, installations and soundtracks.
    Recent works include Take Flight, a composed soundscape starring planes, drones and frequencies, made for ABC’s Creative Audio Unit and A.V.I.O.N, a sister installation inspired by the parallel world of aircraft navigation systems. DinahBird’s radio relay record A Box of 78s is having a rest after it’s 18 month trip around the world. Jean-Philippe’s audio graffitti project, TagAudioLoops was last seen and heard at Waverly train station…

  • Lukas Simonis - Jacovitti and the Salami

    3rd September 2016 @ 12:30 pm - 1:00 pm

    There is comic writer Benito’s Jacovitti’s underestimated promotion of the Salami AN SICH, as a concept, as a weapon, as an ideology. And there is a growing scene of Salami awareness around the world… An underground cult that is still under the radar but will inevitably find world domination -or at least some form of tax evasion.

    So with the spicy taste still in his mouth, Dr Klangendum went and looked for some entities that could explain him the basics of Salamiism.

    Italian Salamist; Stefano Giannotti

    Scottish Salami Scientist; Jim Whelton

    One Bad Word Could Lead You To Hellfire; Sheikh Mansur Al-Salami

    Research; Silvia Scaglioni

    Text; LG Simonis, J Whelton

    Idea, music, editing; Dr Klangendum 2

    special thanks to Noodle Bar for Noodle Machine’s first assignment.

    more special thanks; FVP

    Lukas Simonis has his roots as an instrumentalist and musical 'activist' in the industrial music and noise rock of the Eighties (Throbbing Gristle, the Residents, Pere Ubu, Sonic Youth and beyond). Being a part of the Rotterdam jazzbunker scene (a collective that consisted of heavy drug induced punk rockers, freejazzers, early electronic musicians and pre-postrock combos) he discovered the delimited world of improvisation. In the meantime and after he played in bands like Dull Schicksal, Trespassers W, Morzelpronk, AA Kismet, Liana Flu Winks, VRIL, Stepmother, Perfect Vacuum and Coolhaven. At the same time he was/is organising concerts, events and films, first at the Jazzbunker in Rotterdam later on the Dissonanten festival, the Dissidenten festival, Popifilm, Dodorama , WORM, a multimedia centre for experimental art and finally stichting Klangendum since 2013.
    Nowadays he collaborates with lots of people from different backgrounds. For instance; Kruk (with Nina Hitz and Sato Endo), STEPMOTHER (with Jeroen Visser, Bill Gilonis and David Kerman), Jim Whelton (London), Ergo Phizmiz (UK), Dave Brown (Melbourne), The X Static Tics (with Henk Bakker and various others). Other people he worked with; Eugene Chadbourne (USA), Goh Lee Kwang (Kuala Lumpur), Bohman Brothers (UK), Anne La Berge (USA/NL), Faces (with Huib Emmer, NL), Peter Stampfel (USA), Eddie Prevost (UK), etc.

    1. Cárthach Ó Nuanáin - Dissolve

    "Dissolve" is an improvised piece of electroacoustic music using degraded guitar performances and noise elements gathered from found sounds such as radio static and electronic feedback. It is improvised in the sense that the the samples were manipulated and mangled beyond recognition and recorded straight to disk, live, using a slew of granulators, digital distortion and reverb units in the ppooll environment (a compositional toolkit for Max/MSP).

    Bio: Cárthach Ó Nuanáin is an Irish artist, researcher and educator mostly working within electroacoustic music, computer music and the sonic arts. He currently resides in Barcelona, Spain where he is completing a Ph.D. with the Music Technology Group at Universitat Pompeu Fabra.

    2. Thomas Dunne - Does Anything Ever Really Change

    This composition I call "Does Anything Ever Really Change" it comes for a RTE TV program from 70"s on the docklands in Dublin. It seems even more relevant the subject now considering its over 40 years since those words were spoken.I saw a replay of the program in 2011 and thought i cant leave it there frosen in time on a screen as if it did not mean anything and was a product of its time when its even more clear at this moment what is happening and has happened with land and property not just in Ireland but all over the world. As i said it seem to say a lot that is relevant to today So i decided to do some thing with it. Bring it to life again you might say and to remind our selves of "where we have come from" and as politicians and very fond of saying lately" where we are going".
    This is the result

    Bio: Studied classical guitar/piano and composition at the Royal Irish Academy of Music Dublin Ireland Studied jazz and composition at the jazz Conservatoire Amsterdam.

    3. Alexis Langevin-Tétrault - Dévorer l'espace

    Yearning for an impossible elsewhere, I try to seize vertigines. This octophonic piece is the result of creative sound recording, digital processing and synthesis. It explores the possibilities of relationship between micromontage and drones. This piece was nominee by the Foundation Destellos at the 8th edition of its electroacoustic composition competition in 2015. It was created for an octophonic sound system with the multichannel tools developped at Montreal University by Robert Normandeau's research group (GRIS).

    Bio: As a composer, multi-instrumentalist and stage artist, Alexis Langevin-Tétrault has contributed to a variety of experimental music projects under the guises of QUADr, Falaises, Alexeï Kawolski, BetaFeed, Recepteurz and Destaël while also scoring short films and composing stage play music. He is now enrolled in the University of Montreal’s electroacoustic music program, where he is studying with Robert Normandeau and Nicolas Bernier.

    5. Das Lichtquant - The Sky-Heart

    Project by Eva wollenberg
    Few years ago, wolves reappeared in the natural park where I live. These are mountains full of occult legends and traces of ancient druidic cults, where the Walpurgis Night is still celebrated. I like to recite this wild prayer when in wilderness to wish protection for the beautiful scapegoated animals. The discreet birds in the background were recorded the day of the summer solstice, while lying in wolf territory, between sunrise and the Strawberry Full Moon.
    I protect
your meaty heart, 
sculpt it in a sun, a lightning.
In all shadows, see, and never
unsee.
May all truths appear as true.
In the belly of the whale, meaning ceases to be meaning.
I erase distance;
by sheer will, I abolish time.
I pray like witches pray,
atomized by it; Being and Nothingness, 
smiling deep, in your roots left dangling.
Cosmos in your cosmos,
whispering :
« Please, see. And never unsee. »

    Bio: French polymathic outsider artist and poet of Polish origins born in 1982. Lives and works in the middle of the woods, in the mountains of East of France. Digging into the mine of existentialism, chtonian mysteries, the uncanny and the unseen, the focus is on the exploration of the inner arena, emotional and psychological self-discovery. Das-Lichtquant has been created to explore the sound world, add a new experimental layer to the already existing ecosystem.

  • Black Sun - Relaunch The Dream Weapon

    3rd September 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm

    Live in the Radiophrenia studio.

    Manipulating recordings of William Burroughs own EVP audio texts as “interference from the subconscious”, Darren McNeil, John Cromar and Russell MacEwan present a live-to-air dialogue broadcast beyond typical sensory contact. In the tradition of the late Jhon Balance (COIL), in reference to Austin Osman Spare as ‘direct ancestor’, McNeil, Cromar and MacEwan propose to utilise modern audio field technology as clairvoyant insight and themselves as conduit with Burroughs.

    BIOGRAPHY
    Darren McNeil of IOPAN is a Scottish sound artist based in Glasgow who has worked with theatre producers including Black Sun Drum Korps (UK), Xana Marwick (UK) and Ron Athey (US), as well as producing solo live electronic works across various venues in Glasgow, including the Glue Factory Bring Your Own Beamer A/V events.

  • The Fast Moving Static Show - Marvin Moanlight & Byek Blod

    3rd September 2016 @ 2:30 pm - 3:00 pm

    Crafted Feature? Crafty feature?

    Subject: Fallen between the airwaves

    Title : "The Fast Moving Static Show"

    A wry attempt at "in conversation" and semi autobiographical
    Search between idiocy, policy and the truth...

    With hosts Marvin Moanlight and Byek blod.

    The piece investigates the static space in between the
    Transmitted and sanitized radio stations which usually inhabit
    The airwaves. The parallels between this space, and without
    Understanding what it is comprised of stagnant movement and
    Migration i.e. those fallen between
    The airwaves. "Static" infact, and without a voice, tolerated on
    The periphery as ‘interference’ is explored. Static transients,
    Stuck in a cramped schism.

    Description of radio stations, Defunct media formats in the static of history

    Stories of people in refugee camps

    Arts funding (Arse council of GB, larks council of England) blah blah...)

    Art that becomes pissed.

    Shortwave radios

    Modem Politics

    Static - Truth - Static - Truth and so on...

    Shit talking - Confusion and consequence.

    Thoughts out loud and the Radiophrenia proposal starts to
    Interweave and becomes the static!

  • Yolo Ferahn - Improvised Memories #3 (live at Kevin Space)

    3rd September 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 3:30 pm

    In 2013 I coined the term 'sonorealism'. Behind this term is an ongoing performance and research project revolving around the artificial creation and the perception of soundscapes.
    'Sonorealism' basically describes the artificial production of soundscapes in a studio or live setting without the use of any field recordings. To produce the various sounds I use techniques from foley arts (as we know them from the sound design work for movies and radioplays) and basic electronic processing like filtering, delay and reverberation.
    I don’t use any digitally generated sounds, only sounds from tangible sources. Although I attempt to create perfect illusions of natural soundscapes, I also expand my pieces with abstract elements in order to create sonic worlds which are beyond our daily experiences. From a conceptional point of view 'sonorealism' certainly has a strong analogy to photo- and hyperrealism which have always been two of the most inspiring art genres for me.
    In the beginning it took me about 3 months to finish a piece in the length of about 7 minutes. Now, three years later, I am able to produce a piece live in front of an audience.

    This piece is a live recording of a performance I recently gave in an art space in Vienna named Kevin Space.

    Matthias Hafner (also known by his alias Yolo Ferahn) is a Vienna-based sound artist, sound designer and sound experimentalist focusing on electroacoustic composition and live performance. Yolo Ferahn’s sonic world stretches between haunting and magical experimentation and melodic coherent cinematic narratives towards pieces related to more deconstructivist techniques – showcased in his recent piece “Medicina“ for the newest Yarn Audio Compilation “YARN19“ or his “Improvised Memories Series“. Yolo Ferahn’s sonic trip of soundscapes shapes an eerie yet beautiful world of picturesque sound and imaginary natural spaces that slowly and unpredictably lead the listener into traces of dark and noisy electronic outbursts.
    Using the term Sonorealism for his soundscapes – tunes occurring as the sound of nature itself and often created live with different kinds of objects and the tools and techniques of a foley artist – Matthias Hafner aka Yolo Ferahn reveals his musical inspirations in an unsettling essence of Field Recordings, electroacoustic and cinematic music, and the artistic concept of hyperrealism. In creating his “sonorealistic“ pieces only with tangible and apparent sources including his own linguistic apparatus that is often created live in front of the audience, he aims at exploring the mechanisms underlying the production and consumption of our daily noise surroundings, as well as the complex and ambiguous nature of sound and its unfolding narrative itself.

  • Zoe Irvine - Illiers-Combray soundwalk

    3rd September 2016 @ 3:30 pm - 4:00 pm

    A multi layered soundscape composition exploring a sense of memory and place. Part of a collaboration with Helen Douglas inspired in the month of May by a visit to Illiers Combray, the small town immortalized by Marcel Proust in his epic novel In Search of Lost Time, Irvine and Douglas weave together their own distinct mythologies and reveries; their subjective responses elliptically united by their shared sense of place.

    It was released as a double mini CD with Artist Book by Helen Douglas in 2004 and reworked as a sound walk for the Berwick Film Festival in 2006


  • Paul Nataraj - You Sound Like a Broken Record

    3rd September 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 5:10 pm

    You Sound Like a Broken Record: A Practice Led interrogation of the ontological resonances of vinyl record culture.
    The vinyl record is complex piece of black plastic. It is a cultural hobo that holds a dialectical position as both symbol of cultural subversion and the product of a mass-market industry, remaining equally totemic in both paradigms. In being able to sustain such paradoxes, the object of the record itself has a mythic value that continually fascinates its users. As Eisenberg writes, ‘a shelf of records is a row of possible worlds’.
    My practice uses the vinyl record as a site to interrogate people’s personal relationship to this object, and the potentials of the materiality of the ‘thing’ itself. Volunteers donate records for this work and I record an oral history interview documenting their personal stories about the gifted disc, and their wider musical lives. These narratives are then hand etched onto the surface of each disc creating a palimpsest that indelibly connects the owner and object. As Bartmanski and Woodward write, the surface of the record which is 'kind of taboo...poses a temptation.' It acts as the mechanised embodiment of the siren song, drawing us into its hypnotic spiral and affording us a tactile pleasure. This practice carves out the enmeshments present in all our musical histories, opening them up for further scrutiny.
    I then use these records as the basis for musical compositions, playing back the vandalised records and sampling their fragmentary mediations of the original sound. These compositions question commercial sampling practices, especially in hip-hop production and wider dance music forms. They also have resonances with ideas of indeterminacy in composition and uses of the graphic score. The narratives shared by my respondents are the lead influence on the form of the compositions; in a complex play of objective and subjective space, record, owner and artist share in a temporally dislocated ‘ecoute a trois’, exhumed from the grooves of the record.
    I have collected and 'vandalised' 14 records over the course of this project, ranging from Glasgow's post punk band Badgewearer to Brotherhood of Man. The uniques palimpsestual records and the sound pieces produced are an instantiation of some of the inherent tensions with our relationships to sound, music, memory and time. In the following sound file I include all 14 tracks linked by the recordings of the 'broken' records. In this particular instance and to continue the idea of the palimpsest sonically I have woven more of my interview material and found sonic material from the artists whose records I have vandalised into the broadcast.

    Une première fiction radio, diffusée sur Radio Grenouille et le réseau Campus France dans le cadre de la Nuit de la Nuit le13/06/2015. D’après la nouvelle de Maupassant, avec Etienne Arras et Corinne Lovera Vitali.

    Coming from the visual arts, Isabelle Stragliati turned to the sound medium in 2002 through DJing, as an extension of her approach of the film editing (under the moniker Rescue). She then practiced numerous aspects of radio production (as radio host, producer, music programmer, technician and program director) before reconciling it with her creative work. Her productions, involving field recording, documentary, musique concrète or techno, have been broadcast on national radios (France Culture, Radio Campus France), in festivals and events in Europe (Longueur d’Ondes, Futura, Brouillage, Take You There in France, Radiophrenia in Scotland, CinemaInYourHead in Luxembourg), and in contemporary art centers (CNAC de Grenoble, La Criée à Rennes, Casino Luxembourg).

  • Aleks Kolkowski - The Bishop Sound Collection - Theatre & Radio Sound Effects on Lacquer Discs from the 1940s

    3rd September 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 7:00 pm

    Aleks Kolkowski - The Bishop Sound Collection - Theatre & Radio Sound Effects on Lacquer Discs from the 1940s

    No. 1: Scanning, Jamming, Studio Tests & Pigeons for Victory: A sound montage by Aleks Kolkowski

    The British Library Sound Archive recently completed the transfer and digitisation of thousands of lacquer (or acetate) discs originating from the Bishop Sound and Electrical Company - a maker and purveyor of recorded sound effects predominately for the theatre. Founded by Jack Bishop during the1930s the company operated successfully until the late 1950s.

    A number of these recordings are experimental tests made direct-to-disc by studio engineers, unedited and unintended for commercial use. The captured voices of the engineers and artists at work reveal the artifice of sound effects production.
    BLSA Composer-in-Residence Aleks Kolkowski has sifted through a vast number of radio-related recordings from the Bishop Collection in order to compile a special montage composition for Radiophrenia. In it, we hear the sounds of World War Two and Cold War radio scanning and jamming; the surface noises from heavily worn acetate discs; studio tests and snatches from an unknown radio play about homing pigeons. Kolkowski's BLSA residency is part of Sound And Music's Embedded Composers Scheme.

    Aleksander Kolkowski is a composer and violinist who uses historical sound recording and reproduction apparatus and obsolete media to make contemporary mechanical-acoustic music. His numerous international projects in this field have combined wax cylinder phonographs, gramophones and vintage disc recording machines together with live musicians. His performances and installations often emphasise archaic techniques of sound amplification and modes of listening, and a fascination with sound effects records from the early 1900s. In 2012 he was appointed as the first sound artist-in-residence at the Science Museum, London, and has since held research associateships at the Royal College of Music and the Science Museum.

  • Dream. Like. Sound #03 - Isabelle Stragliati

    3rd September 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

    Dream.Like.Sound is an experimental radio show series dealing with sound and radiophonic creation. It's a monthly sound reverie, a sound contemplation that goes with my research, on a chosen thematic… A work in progress, 10 episodes to un-learn doing radio shows. I broadcast sound works that inspire me, and readings (in french or english), together with my own sound work (sometimes created specifically for the show). Editing and mixing the show is fully part of the creation process. The series have been broadcast on the Radio Campus Angers, Grenoble, Orléans, Paris, Rouen, Tours, Radio U, Radio Grenouille, Campus FM (France), Radio Campus Bruxelles (Belgium), Radio ARA (Luxembourg), Radiophrenia (Scotland)...

    BIO
    Coming from the visual arts, Isabelle Stragliati turned to the sound medium in 2002 through DJing, as an extension of her approach of the film editing (under the moniker Rescue). She then practiced numerous aspects of radio production (as radio host, producer, music programmer, technician and program director) before reconciling it with her creative work. Her productions, involving field recording, documentary, musique concrète or techno, have been broadcast on national radios (France Culture, Radio Campus France), in festivals and events in Europe (Longueur d’Ondes, Futura, Brouillage, Take You There in France, Radiophrenia in Scotland, CinemaInYourHead in Luxembourg), and in contemporary art centers (CNAC de Grenoble, La Criée à Rennes, Casino Luxembourg).

  • Secluded Bronte - Dark August Variations

    3rd September 2016 @ 10:00 pm - 11:00 pm

    Artist: Secluded Bronte

    Title of work: Dark August Variations

    Description of work

    I don’t want to pre-load the listener with a listening guide but to me there’s something enigmatic about this hörspiel. Perhaps the dissonant gong like chords at the very beginning cast a large dark question mark over the entire thing. Its fairly mercurial or chameleonic, it shifts in time and space and as it does so it also shifts in timbre. Appropriately, then, it is also partially a travelogue featuring fragments from three audio diaries that my colleagues and I maintained whilst recording this project in Rotterdam.

    There are multiple layers of sounds; tape manipulation, amplified acoustic objects,
    analogue synthesis and sound processing, field recordings, speech. Some of the sounds have a raw, brute quality. Miscellaneous formats and techniques were used for recording in order to create timbral variation and diversity, and real physical presence. There is, as mentioned previously, much in the way of transformation. The script is a poem composed of fragments from absurd adverts for luxury products, descriptions of wines, directions, text appropriated from Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights, transcribed dialogue from a straight to video American horror movie and texts which have been arrived at via OuLiPo-lite algorithmic approaches and collage. Lines chosen randomly from multiple sources like Rudolf Rocker’s “Anarcho-Syndicalism” to “The Mabinogion” were sculpted into what sounds like coherent speech via multiple languages using translation apps. So, what started in English is translated into Spanish, Welsh, Russian, Japanese, Italian, Arabic, Dutch and then back into English. This work is most evident in the last 25 minutes of the piece.

    Dark August Variations ends with a sequence of soliloquies for three voices, it seems dark and austere which is just what most of Europe looks like right now. Enjoy.
    Richard Thomas, November 2014.

    Dark August Variations written and performed by Secluded Bronte (Adam Bohman,
    Jonathan Bohman, Richard Thomas) and Peter Fengler, Lukas Simonis, Daniela De Paulis, Bebe Beliz.
    Mixed and edited by
    Richard Thomas.

  • CHOQ - 60 Second Radio International

    3rd September 2016 @ 11:00 pm - 11:30 pm

    A selection of 27 1-minute radio works selected from the CHOQ - 60 Second Radio International competition by Boris Chassagne.

    My name is Boris Chassagne, I’m from Canada. The Montréal campus radio CHOQ.ca launched in 2015 the 60 Second Radio International competition. The idea behind this contest, was to open our station to radio artists, composers, electro-acousticians, and radio producers from around the world around a collective project. The contestants were asked to produce a 60 second radio work. In 2015, the theme of Liberty was proposed. Little did we know, that the Charlie Hebdo assassinations would take place, weeks after the theme had been selected. Never the less, 120 works from 15 countries were submitted in 2015. The following year, in view of the events of the preceding year, we thought that A Quiet Morning, would do us all some good. Our mistake again, as the Brussels airport bombings took place. This time, 125 works from 12 countries were submitted to the jury in 2016.

    We do not know what year 3 will bring, and we will probably wait as long as we can to choose its theme? In any case, these two years brought us a superb selection of styles, approaches, and soundscapes. From the 245 works we had the pleasure to hear and rebroadcast over the years in Canada and in Europe, we here present to you some of them, in fact 27 radio art works.

    The artists come from France, Belgium, Spain, Germany, Canada, United-States, Latin-American countries such as Argentina, Chile and Uruguay. For more info, please visit choq.ca, our Facebook page also 60 second radio or through SoundCloud where all works can be heard.

  • Indeterminacy: John Cage by Steve Beresford, Tania Chen & Stewart Lee

    3rd September 2016 @ 11:30 pm - 12:00 am

    Live at St Leonard's Church, Shoreditch, London, 2 June 2010

    Notes by Philip Clark

    In 1959 Smithsonian Folkways – a record label more typically associated with folk artists like Peggy Seeger and Woody Guthrie – released Indeterminacy, described as “Ninety Stories by John Cage, with Music.”

    The set-up was as follows: Cage recited stories, plucked randomly from 90 stories written on cue cards, as David Tudor – playing out of earshot in another room – mashed sections of Cage’s Concert for Piano and Orchestra inside his electronic Fontana Mix.

    Cage’s stories – about Zen Buddhism, taking composition lessons with Schoenberg, his love of mushrooms and generally finding sublime pleasures in life’s minutiae – were overlaid onto Tudor’s bitty, non-sequitur boom-splats of music. All life was there – the fascination of boredom, banality collaps- ing towards whimsy, the curious randomness of accuracy working against/with the even stranger accuracy of randomness. Humour and existentialist melancholy co-existed, perching on a knife-edge. Cage imposed one further rule: each story had to slot inside a one-minute timeframe and therefore longer stories needed to be read quickly, while shorter stories were stretched to a counter- intuitive snail’s pace. But few stories actually spanned the one-minute duration comfort- ably. Cage played tricks with time. Only in the real world do minutes last sixty seconds. Even if they don’t. Or do.

    On July 2 and July 3 pianists Tania Chen and Steve Beresford will perform Indeterminacy live in St Leonard’s Church Shoreditch, with stand-up comedian and writer Stewart Lee taking the John Cage role.

  • The Chants Beneath Episode Four

    4th September 2016 @ 12:00 am - 1:00 am

    The Chants Beneath Project features a total of 120 newly commissioned sonic works from the world's most exciting sound artists. Each piece makes use of, or responds to, a unique cassette-tape loop created by artist Jeremy Young.
    http://chantsbeneath.net

    Episode four: Voicings
    New work by Antoine Läng, Stephanie Loveless, Rachael Finney, Mike Shiflet, Natalie Chami, My Cat Is An Alien, Andreas Oskar Hirsch, James Hamilton, Helena Espvall and Svjetlana Bukvich.

    Jeremy Young is an artist and entrepreneurial strategist working predominantly within the flexible borders of sound media. His creative work includes compositions for recording and live performance, reel-to-reel tape collage, sound-poetry and audio-visual scoring. His main interests as a performer lie in the analog treatment of surface-based audio (piezo mic'd objects and surfaces, manipulating tape and tone via texture and voltage), as he is not concerned with what one hears but how it is heard and through what lens. He has performed and released material throughout Europe, Asia, the US, UK and Canada. In 2014, he was awarded a Media Artists' Assistance Grant by Wave Farm (NYSCA) to create 125 unique artist edition double-sided loop pieces towards developing sustainable audience engagement with the sonic arts, housing all the loops online in a freely streamable living archive and commissioning over 120 sound artists to create new work using each singular piece. Visit the project here to view the list of participating artists.

    Young's main sonic project is a collaborative trio with Ian Temple and Jesse Perlstein called Sontag Shogun that makes use of analog sound treatments and nostalgic solo piano compositions in harmony to depict abstract places in our memory. However, Young recently released his debut duo album with cellist/multi-instrumentalist Aaron Martin entitled, A Pulse Passes from Hand to Hand on Chihei Hatakeyama's label White Paddy Mountain. He also performs in a trio with pianist Shinya Sugimoto and 16mm projectionist Joel Schlemowitz as well in a post-Celtic folk duo with Daniel Merrill called Foxout!. Young has shared the stage with notable artists such as Hauschka, Julia Kent, Aki Onda, Matana Roberts, Jason Lescalleet, Aaron Martin, Dead Rat Orchestra, Barn Owl, Sam Shalabi, Alexander Turnquist, Tom Carter, Noveller, Ben Vida & Koen Holtkamp among many others.

    *Young has been invited to Geneva by the Musée d'Éthnographie to co-curate and conduct a residency series in 2016 exploring the collection of ethnomusicological recordings in the Museum's Phonothèque archive.


  • Anna Friz - Uncoordinated Universal Time

    4th September 2016 @ 1:00 am - 6:00 am

    Anna has spent years listening to and sampling that curious device, the cesium clock, the keeper of atomic time which is broadcast on shortwave radio around the world and currently the basis for coordinated universal time on all wireless and networked devices. Taken together, the relentless ticking, the sometimes overlapping voices intoning the minute and the hour, and the intermittent but rigorously issued tones are an uncanny sonic artifact of mid-century modernity. Part of an ongoing exploration on the perception and standardization of time through timekeeping and recording, and radio, this long-form radio piece explores the continuous, irregular present by stretching, manipulating and suspending the zero hour to produce Uncoordinated Universal Time.

    Biography

    Anna Friz is a Canadian sound and radio artist who specializes in multi-channel transmission systems for installation, performance, and broadcast. She has performed and exhibited widely across North America, South America, and Europe, and her radio art/works have been heard on the airwaves of more than 25 countries. She holds a Ph.D. in Communication and Culture from York University, Toronto, and completed a post-doctoral fellowship in the Sound Department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2013. She is a steering member of the artist collective Skálar | Sound Art | Experimental Music based in Iceland and Berlin, and an ongoing collaborator with the Toronto-based film and architectural collective Public Studio

    Bio: Jeff Kolar is a sound artist, radio producer, and curator. He is the Founder and Artistic Director of Radius, an experimental radio broadcast platform established in 2010. His work, which has been described as “speaker-shredding” (Half Letter Press), “wonderfully strange” (John Corbett), and “characteristically curious” (Marc Weidenbaum), activates sound in unconventional, temporary, and ephemeral ways using appropriation and remix as a critical practice. His solo and collaborative projects, installations, and public performances often investigate the mundane sonic nuances of everyday electronic devices.

    2. JP Renoult – Luc Ferrari

    Minutes de Silence. La voix sans paroles. 2009. par Jean-Philippe Renoult
    The series " Minute of silence ... " created by Jean-Philippe Renoult between 2009 and 2012 , will seek between words. Instead of reproducing about artists, recompose it in the universe from the " er ", " Hmmm ," mouth noises and other hesitations that usually infect the text. This minute is a partition without verb that suggests beyond the words of their authors.

    Winter 2009, fifteen episodes of minutes of silence, open and close daily Antenna Resonance FM , London. They include: Charlemagne Palestine , Christian Marclay , Coldcut , Gavin Bryars , George Clinton, Luc Ferrari, Martin Tetreault , Matthew Herbert , Melvin Van Peebles, Otomo Yoshiide , The Residents , Pierre Henry …All the material I use is taken from my own interviews archives, with the exception of one : the magic interview with Albert Ayler, directed by my radio mentor and friend Daniel Caux in 1970 in St Paul de Vence.

    6. Kyle Stewart - Bloom (2015)

    Bloom is an electroacoustic piece created from experimentation with convolved sound materials, granular synthesis and micromontage composition. The title not only refers to the horizontal and vertical growth of these materials throughout the piece, but also to the way in which the sonic identities of these materials develop during their spectral and spatial trajectories. This piece creates a surreal listening environment by considering the contrast between the real and the unreal; between recognisable instrumental sounds and ambiguous, processed sounds.

    Bio: Kyle Stewart is a sound and audiovisual composer based in Glasgow, Scotland. He is a graduate of the University of Glasgow, where he studied sonic arts and music. His work has been showcased at festivals, exhibitions and broadcasts throughout the world. Recent highlights include Sound Thought 2016 in Glasgow, a listening room in Leeds, the New York City Electroacoustic Media Festival 2016 and the Toronto International Electroacoustic Symposium 2016.

  • Post-Everything - Notes We Should Have Left

    4th September 2016 @ 7:00 am - 7:30 am

    A sound collage of notes we should have left. Five poets write note-sized poems captured in spoken-word soundscapes that are mapped in music. In this meta-soundscape, the details of how the poetry was written and recorded is built into the musicality and journey of the piece. The result is a calamity of narratives that are unrequited, unanswered and echoing.

    Biography

    Post-Everything is Will Tyas and Antosh Wojcik. We are poets and musicians. We specialise in creative documentation of our own work and the work of others. Our primary interest is in podcasting, audio journalism and sonic art. We have received sound art commissions from Apples and Snakes and The Barbican.

  • Found Sound Answering Machines - Episode 4 - John Morin

    4th September 2016 @ 7:30 am - 8:00 am

    Found Sound Answering Machines is a series of analog recordings gathered from answering machine tapes found at thrift stores, estate sales and junk piles. In the rush to embrace new technology, we frequently discard the old outdated models just as fast without considering what personal memories and left-behind, intimate moments they might contain.

    Radio Eyes is an active listening project by California-based sound artist John Morin that seeks to explore the potentiality of personal sonic space and offers new ways of seeing and hearing the world around us. The work reminds us that if seeing is believing, than what we hear can be unbelievable.

    2. Sian Gledhill - Conversations

    Conversations was commissioned for a public project called Aren’t, an alternative audio guide for the National Gallery, set up by artist David Orme. I spent considerable time exploring the museum’s collection and became intrigued by the appearance of several ‘unfinished’ paintings. This became the basis for the sound piece ‘Conversations’ in which contributors were recorded as they commentated on filmed footage of these unfinished works and the interactions of visitors in the gallery spaces in which they are hung.

    3. Baofeng - 446.00975

    446.00975 is a recording of incoming radio traffic.

    Bio: Baofeng is an experimental sound project founded in 2015 by artists Alexander Withey (CH) and Jan Simon Weins (GER) using standard PMR Walkie Talkies. The project originated from a shared interest in the possibilities of using simple, transparent tools for transporting sound, time and space to the public realm. By interfering with public radio traffic and manipulating an expected mode of communication, Baofeng is not bound to any spatial boundaries, but rather opens up the possibility for unforeseeable encounters outside a gallery context. Currently we are experimenting with different platforms to document these activities.

    4. Dosimat - Harris Fountain

    Thankfully spontaneous sound capture has never been so easy or I may have missed the chance to record the sound of 30 - 40 cyclists, mostly dressed in tweed, cycling around and around The Stewart Memorial Fountain in Kelvingrove park Glasgow ringing their bells as they went. The wonderful noise is the basis of this piece.

    6. Nad Spiro – Sparky 6

    “SIRIUS RADIO FREQUENCIES”
    Artist - Rosa Arruti aka Nad Spiro

    Last year I worked in the Cork ’s Harbour area as artist in residence at Sirius Arts Center, Cobh co. Cork (Ireland). My project was about the harbour as a setting for acoustic transit : I developed some sound fictions that included transmission codes, navigation narratives, signal stations, radar tones, Marconi’s experiments, sirens, Titanic messages... These music pieces were later performed live at the “Sounds from a Safe Harbour” festival (Cork, Sept. 2015). During my stay at Sirius I created some “radio frequencies” of my own with electronic instruments in order to include them in the final pieces. The tracks I submit to Radiophrenia are de original, isolated “Sirius Radio Frequencies” that I created there. What better medium than a radio broadcast to disseminate them?

    7. Andreas Oskar Hirsch_Summe 1 – Teilchenbeschleuniger

    After numerous concerts and performances throughout the last years, Summe 1 is Andreas O. Hirsch‘s first release on makiphon. The album concentrates on peculiar soundscapes and drony pieces, carefully interwoven by means of pitched harmonicas, electric guitars, mini fans, delays and the electric palm leaf, an electroacoustic invention of the artist. The eight titles evoke a space somewhere between interstellar geography (Maxwell Mountains – a plateau on planet Venus), abstract physics (Teilchenbeschleuniger), botanical scenery and animality: Kemeri 5 am features nocturnal crane calls that Hirsch recorded on a bike trip in a swamp near Riga while he was busy with decoding bird messages via morse code. Opossum Pravda is dedicated to the tenacious marsupial that likes to wander around at night and which is able to hang from trees by its tail. Kautschukwaage seems to suggest an exotic setting and provides a link to the rubber bands which one hears resonating in the miniature. Sleeve designed by the artist. 300 copies. Mastered by Joseph Suchy.

    11. Alexis Langevin-Tétrault - Apax

    Apax reflects a creative process marked by a desire to disconcert my usual composition reflexes. The workpiece consists essentially of different variations of a single sound. It demonstrates a search for variation in continuity with the gradual changes of timbre and spatialization. The composition process is inspired by the phenomenology of time and by the reading of The Dialectic of Duration, Intuition of the Instant and The Poetics of Space by Gaston Bachelard. This octophonic piece was composed with
    the spatialization tools developed by Robert Normandeau's research group at Montreal University (GRIS). This composition won the Métamorphoses 2016 prize, student category.

  • Gen Doy - As the Crow Flies

    4th September 2016 @ 9:00 am - 9:30 am

    The Crowstone, Southend on Sea (North Side) and the Yantlet Stone, Isle of Grain (South Side - no longer an island) are joined by the so-called Yantlet line, which marks the boundary of the Port of London’s authority and the beginning of the North Sea. Focusing on the area around the south boundary stone, this work is made from field-recordings, specially written songs, and responds to the interaction of humans and nature in this atmospheric site. The crow flies over the estuary and the traces of military activity, disused firing ranges, old searchlight installations, and calls to us to listen and contemplate.

    Gen Doy is an artist and writer living in London. She worked as a historian and theorist of visual culture, before training full-time as an artist. She likes to use field recording and the voice in her work, which has been broadcast on radio, exhibited in galleries and in historic sites. She also performs her work live. An important concern of her work is to bring the past into a provocative relationship with the present.

  • Matteo Spanò - The Hand & The Mouth

    4th September 2016 @ 9:30 am - 10:15 am

    The Hand & The Mouth – A radiophonic investigation

    The Hand & The Mouth, as the title suggests, deals with the two primary tools for human
    expression and communication: writing and speech. The format chosen to investigate them is the so called “radio drama”, or “Hörspiel” in german. It is a format that typically deals with extended durations, spanning from 20 minutes to one hour or more and compared to electroacoustic compositions and generally called “loudspeaker music” might involve the use of narrative elements combined with moments of more abstract and “pure” sonic articulation, which seemed to be rather fitting to the topic at hand.

    Content-wise, the radio piece revolves around the written dimension and is structured as a metaphorical journey through the evolution of the graphical sign, from its inception as a pure gesture of the hand to affirm its presence by inscribing it onto an external support, sort of outward movement, to its becoming part of a multi-layered linguistic system. Such journey is based on a research about writing in art practice, but opts for a poetic instead of analytical approach, concealing the references to the research phase inside a network of sonic symbols and associative and imaginative descriptions.

    The topic of vocal expression is not dealt with in the script, but through the means of the
    format itself: voice is chosen to be the main (almost the only) material used in the piece,
    therefore the translation from writing to speech occurs automatically and shows the differences and coincidences between the two dimensions as a natural consequence. The piece is divided into six chapters, each chapter covering a “stage” in the sign’s evolution. Different stages have all different nature, therefore different voices are chosen to interpret them, with the addition of two narrators that act as the fil rouge, as a meta-layer between the listener and the single sound pieces and tie all the acts together into a coherent, uniform saga; they fulfil the storytelling role, in order to attribute a concrete role to each piece, as well as to escape a too strictly analytical exposition. The single chapters all deal with different practices and compositional strategies that take into account historic approaches in the field of sound poetry, such as the ones of Henri Chopin, Bernard Heidsieck, Kurt Schwitters, Adriano Spatola, Brion Gysin and Luciano Berio to name a few. Although part of a linear narration, the different sound pieces are not – at least formally – a direct consequence of one another, but create a network that shows, as a whole, the broad complexity that vocal articulation reaches in art practice, parallel to the one of writing, exposed in the content of the piece. This way, both dimensions are addressed at the same time.

    Matteo Spanò was born in Genoa, Italy, June 1989.
    is currently based in Berlin-Lichtenberg. has a BA in Electroacoustic Composition at the Music Conservatory, Genoa and an MA in Sound Studies at the University of Arts, Berlin. is a founding member of Cashmere Radio. splits his trade between radio practices, xperiments in writing, music production and research in bar culture. believes in a healthy compenetration between art and everyday routinary activities like making an avocado sandwich with sweet balsamic vinegar and raw white onions. considers key elements of artistic practice to be com-munication, craftmanship, curiosity and a rather large dose of (self-)irony.

  • Clear Spot

    4th September 2016 @ 10:15 am - 11:00 am

    Short works including:

    1) Sarah Angliss - Summer's Lease (3:00)
    2) Remote Orchestra, Valentina Bonizzi with Sabreen Studio - erformance 1: Bethlehem – Jerusalem (15:26)

    Details:

    1) Sarah Angliss - Summer's Lease

    Bio: Sarah Angliss is a composer, musical automatist and sound historian. Her work combines acoustic and robotic instruments with Max, electronics, found sounds and field recordings. Sarah’s work explores the uncanny properties of technology, revealing resonances between European folklore and early notions of electricity and sound. A prolific live performer, Sarah also works in theatre, creating distinctive sounds which blur the boundaries between sound design and musical composition. Her theatre sounds have most recently been heard in The Old Vic, London, where she evoked the overwhelming clamour of modernity in O’Neill’s Expressionist masterpiece The Hairy Ape (directed by Richard Jones).
    http://www.sarahangliss.com

    2) Remote Orchestra, Valentina Bonizzi with Sabreen Studio - Performance 1: Bethlehem – Jerusalem

    Remote Orchestra is, on first glance, relatively simple: is the attempt to bring musicians living in different cities together using free, off-the-shelf telepresent technology and internet connectivity to affect real-time collaborations. To nurture these collaborations, I coordinate and facilitate online meetings, discussions, practice sessions, and public concerts among musicians. Building on these collaborations, I will work towards researching the challenges of bringing Remote Orchestra musicians together into the same physical space, and get a sense of how much efforts it takes today to play in real-time without the requirement of technological mediation. The simplicity of this proposition belies the challenging social, political, and economic conditions that make the realisation of a physical meeting possible. In working towards developing extended and on-going collaborations, Remote Orchestra musicians have to negotiate with timezone and linguistic differences, technological delays, poor sound quality, bad connections, etc.. In working towards looking at how to bring them together in one geographical location, we will encounter a host of challenges regarding funding and visa restrictions.

    Remote Orchestra challenges the quotidian relationship we have with technology and the politics of mobility that are made invisible by their very banality. Identifying, documenting, and exposing these complexities and the consequences that they have on social mis/conceptions of mobility and migration are fundamental to this project. Maintaining what Grant Kester deems the “quasi-autonomy” of art allows for Remote Orchestra to effect dynamic engagement with the real-world challenges and implications that this process exposes.

    This is a recording of the first performance of Remote Orchestra, in which was played the resistance song O Bella Ciao between Bethlehem and Jerusalem. Added to the recording are the voices of one musician from Jerusalem and one from Bethlehem explaining the challenges they would have in obtaining permission to play live.
    http://youtu.be/KNb0vRZLHoM

    Remote Orchestra will be streamed through Mnemoscape Issue 4: On Remoteness /
    http://www.mnemoscape.org/ through its collaborations with several independent radios around the world. Confirmed collaboration for Remote Orchestra are Buchs’n Radio, Buchsenhausen and Radio Arte Mobile in Rome.

    Valentina Bonizzi short bio: Milan, 1982, lives between Glasgow and Tirana. Digging into archives and communities, Valentina Bonizzi’s work highlights issues of social justice while trying to offer careful and thoughtful resolutions. Most of her research investigates and uncovers the potentialities of democratization that lay in the artistic re-definition of cartographic practices. Her practice and research self-reflectively explores the role of the technical image in all its expanded forms by working with film, photography, sound and participative dialogues. Hybridity, migration and the environment are key issues in her work that sometimes are expressed through performative interventions.


  • Chris Dooks - Shellackplatten Quintet Live

    4th September 2016 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

    A live mix of rare 78s for at least three beautifully irritable gramophones (which ended up being FIVE! hence it now being a quintet).

    Big thanks to Mark Vernon for recording the set which because of the idiosyncrasies in the record players and discs, varies in volume - also there's a generator in the background for a food stall! More thanks at the end of this text.

    From the Sanctuary2015.org text:

    Over the last few years, artist Chris Dooks has been working with vinyl and shellac records (and wind up gramophones) as he trawls eBay and markets for aural gems without a home – until now! With a project in line with Dooks’ recent PhD on working closely with vinyl, Chris unveils some of his rare 78rpm records and new vintage record players for Sanctuary 2015 for this hour-long performance.

    On a recent trip to Moabit, Berlin, partly for Sanctuary, Dr Dooks visited Europe’s leading idiosyncratic dealer of rare shellac to complete an exclusive palette of sound for this performance. The store, open one day a week, and with an army of Berlin’s shellac devotees crammed into a very modest but highly organised shop, Dooks completed a collection of extremely rare 78s – which at the risk of a spoiler-alert will make for a thematically appropriate one-hour mix for The Dark Outside 2015.

    This is not without risks – without control of volume, consistent playback speed and the risk of breaking springs – can Chris mix at least three gramophones together – ‘triangulating’ or creating a series of sonic layers from 78s as a mix? Bear in mind the sound is ‘unamplified’ other than from the boxes themselves, so could he make such a mix from these irritable machines?

    There’s only one way to find out! Dooks is fond of limitations and this is a simple idea that could get quite complex and unpredictable live. Not to be missed for fans of Philip Jeck, lovers of field recordings and raw scratchy shellac aesthetics.

    Big thanks to Mark Vernon for this recording, Gerry Cassidy and Mark Lyken for assistance.

    Dr Chris Dooks (b.1971) is an Edinburgh-based interdisciplinary artist and academic researcher. In 1998 Dooks began to pursue his own works full time as a professional multimedia artist after directing arts programmes in his early career.

    His 2014 PhD is titled “The Fragmented Filmmaker – Emancipating The Exhausted Artist” and is both a text and a conceptual vinyl trilogy. The expansive project aimed to provide Dooks with a ‘container’ to house many sonic experiments in overcoming chronic health problems. On a more ‘Radiophonic’ level, in 2015 Eilean Records released Dooks’ first post-doctoral album ‘Accretion Disc’ which contains many shortwave radio works.

  • Sarah Angliss - Signalman

    4th September 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm

    Embracing and updating the Radiophonic tradition, Sarah Angliss presents a spatialised sound poem inspired by The Signalman, Charles Dickens’ ghost tale for the industrial age. In this fractured retelling, Angliss plays with psychoacoustics and liminal sounds to conjure spectral resonances, ghostly cries and the gloom and dampness of a deep railway cutting. As sounds and music unfold, an isolated signalman becomes all too aware of a future horror he can do nothing to undo. This piece is created in collaboration with vocal artists Colin Uttley (adult) and Nicholas Gowing (child).. For maximum spatial effect, please listen with headphones.

    Sarah Angliss is a composer, musical automatist and sound historian. Her work combines acoustic and robotic instruments with Max, electronics, found sounds and field recordings. Sarah’s work explores the uncanny properties of technology, revealing resonances between European folklore and early notions of electricity and sound. A prolific live performer, Sarah also works in theatre, creating distinctive sounds which blur the boundaries between sound design and musical composition.

  • Miriam Schickler - Echoing Yafa

    4th September 2016 @ 12:30 pm - 1:00 pm

    Miriam Schickler's audiowalk Echoing Yafa (played here in part) follows Marconi's thought that sounds never die but grow progressively fainter. Imagine that all the sounds that have ever resonated in this region, she writes, still reverberate somewhere, however faintly.

    Echoing Yafa recovers some of those sounds and relocates them to the place that they originated from, Manshiyyah, once a busy neighbourhood of Jaffa and a place that, except for the remnants of two buildings, today is visually no longer conceivable and is usually considered to be a part of Tel Aviv.

    Echoing Yafa tells the stories of some of the former Palestinian residents of Manshiyyah and thereby re-enacts what has been destroyed and irreversibly changed throughout the events leading to, and during the war of 1947/1948, and by current processes of displacement and dispossession of the Palestinian community in today's Jaffa. Visit echoingyafa.org for the complete audio walk in Arabic, Hebrew and English.

    Thanks to the refugees of Manshiyyah and the rest of Yafa, as well as their family members. This work is dedicated to them and all other refugees.

    1. Lise Olsen - Stannergate to Stargate

    Inspired by a transcript of a story involving a Dundee tram journey, to a place called Stannergate. Within the text, a typing error was found and replaced the word ‘Stannergate’ to ‘Stargate’. The sound workis inspired by that mistake, creating an imaginary journey of walking into a metaphorical time machine. Presenting time passing, by using a combination of the spoken word, beat and rhythm of a ticking clock and the contrasting sound of new and old technologies. The sound presents space within the listener’s environment suggesting a circular movementcreated to present the ‘then and now’ of that journey.

    Bio: Lise Olsen is a Dundee based artist whosepractice involves a hermeneutic sharing, allowing for a deeper understanding of ‘being’. With a strong intreast in our relationship of place, perceptions of our movement in time and space and human pace of life, she experiments with time and sensory experiences by opening herself to serendipity. Allowing for the discovery of unexpected knowledge and new material possibilities, always looking for spontaneous random eventsthat trigger particular moods and creative interactions. Her artwork involves the creation of fictional narratives to communicate meaning not obviously seen and is open to interpretation.

    3. Craig Dongoski and Robert Scott Thompson - Suspended Dormancy and the Obliteration of the Expired

    Bio: Craig Dongoski is a Full Professor at Georgia State University in Atlanta, Georgia USA. Dongoski’s has been exploring and articulating the mark in its most basic form (both graphically and aurally) for much of his career. The intention is that through varied interpretations of the marks that a contribution is made to the art historical dialogue within the origin of human expression. Professor Dongoski has performed and produced work each year on the island of Kefalonia, Greece since 2011. He also has a considerable body of work, entitled The Primates NoteBook, employing his drawing-sound experiments and innovations in tandem with chimpanzees through the Language Research Center in Atlanta, Georgia. He was twice nominated for a Ford/Rockefeller Foundation Fellowship in New Media. Dongoski also has released CD’s on Hydra Head Records and Aucourant Records. In 2015 he directed an important improvisation collaboration with filmmaker Larry Clark resulting in a limited press LP entitled Drawing Through. He is represented by WhiteSpace gallery in Atlanta, Georgia.

    4. Matt JH Lord - taping

    I've been playing and recording music for over fifteen years. In my room in Edinburgh I make sound collages that combine self-recorded loops and instrumentation with field recordings, sampling and found sound.

    In taping I try to create a soundscape that celebrates the individual form of expression that comes from home taping, and the unique relationship the listener has with works created by artists who self record to capture a moment. By combining my own home recordings, with samples that reference the act of recording I tried to create a piece that references the moment in which it was created, and the motivations that pull people to record themselves and the world around them as an audio record of the moment.

    5. David Steans – Spider

    Champagne Murders. Eight channel audio piece. Original music by Clear Phantom and Stamina Nudes. Voice acting by Georgia Boukla, John Mylotte, Bad News, Keith Senior, David Steans, Hazel Steans, Jennifer Steans and Bryan Smith. Champagne Murders is a collection of eight spoken word pieces written, recorded and produced by myself. Each short fiction deals anecdotally with some dubious 'murder'. Whilst conceived and previously presented as a suite, each Murder functions as a self-contained piece, and so could be presented individually if appropriate.

    Bio: David Steans (born 1984, Stockport) is an artist and writer currently based in Leeds, England. Since 2015 he has worked as a Lecturer on the BA Fine Art programme at Leeds College of Art.

    Recent exhibitions, projects and screenings include: The Kippenberger Challenge at De Appel Institut Library, Amsterdam (2016); Mega Armageddon Death - Long Version at ArtRotterdam Intersections, Netherlands (2016); Mood Board at À CÔTÉ DU 69, Nantes, France; Display Show at Eastside Projects, Birmingham (2015); I'MTen at IMT Gallery, London and Medieval helpdesk at Leeds International Medieval Congress (2015). His writing was included in Cadavere Quotidiano (2014), an anthology of writing by contemporary artists published by Project X Foundation for Art & Criticism.

    “I tell stories and invent histories, as well as subvert existing ones. I work across writing, sound, moving image, performance and installation. I am influenced by horror, as well as documentary modes, adapting and appropriating them in order to complicate familiar representations. Recent work has centred around the spoken word, including for example the rapped and sung delivery of fictive texts that unpick their own ‘telling’ through wordplay, repetition, ‘corpsing’ and vocal effects.” David Steans 2016

    6. Annie Higgen - Straining My Voice

    Straining My Voice is a piece of sound art which reflects upon the political discourse around the European Union in the run up to the EU referendum in the UK. The piece uses the emotional symbolism of the European anthem “Ode to Joy” to juxtapose the dreams and hopes attached to the idea of the European Union with the harsh reality of the economic crisis and the fears and anger felt by the British population. The collage piece is held together by the sound of an untrained solitary voice humming the European anthem – exemplifying the struggle to hold on to the European dream in times like these.

    Bio: Annie Higgen is a Glasgow-based poet and sound artist who works across different media and art forms. Her experimental practice aims for an interdisciplinary approach to contemporary art and frequently incorporates forms of political and social activism. In her work, she alternates between more traditional forms of page-based poetic writing, digital media, and sound works. Previously working as a singer- songwriter she gradually moved to poetry and more experimental sound art and finished her MA in Poetic Practice at Royal Holloway in 2014. Annie is particularly interested in exploring concepts of place within social and political frameworks and she has developed audio works, net-based pieces, book works, and performances in relation to a number of sites, primarily in London. Her emotionally charged spoken-word pieces often develop notions of physical and emotional violence and confinement.

  • Luke Fowler & Richard McMaster - Twilight of the Rock Gods

    4th September 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm

    The second collaborative work from artists Luke Fowler and Richard McMaster focuses on the London Rock Music scene of the late1970/early 80's and is accompanied by biographical reflections from a young East-Ender who has worked in the industry all his life and now finds himself unemployed . Fowler/McMaster's source material originates from two different reel to reel collections, which had been sold or discarded. The first is a collection of demo tapes dating from 1974-78 produced by a London major label presumably to tout new releases to radio DJ's. The music contained within the tapes highlights the spectrum of rock music being produced during the period; ranging from soft to prog rock, eventually giving way to disco and more electronic influences. This material is radically re-shaped by means of editing, looping and then feeding the loops through vintage hardware effects boxes. We wanted to use effects that were common in the studios at that time but were often used very conservatively by producers. In our methodology the effects are manipulated and 'played' as instruments in their own right.

    The second archive of tapes were from a research Lab found within a major London University. Drawing mostly from one interview tape- the narrative that unfolds are biographical reflections of a young East-End professional, who started out as a music writer and then in various other roles from A+R to management liaison. Over the course of the interview he demystifies the often glamourised image the music industry. His comments frame and create associative meanings with the accompanying treated rock tapes.

    At one point in the interview our narrator draws our attention to his stammer -alluding to the raison d'être for the interview. In fact the tape was selected from a larger collection of interviews with people who suffer from speech defects. During the course of the collage we also hear fragments of other research material cut in; including a woman reading elocution exercises and early speech synthesis experiments.

    1. Joan Schuman - Flesh has turned itself to stone or dust

    Of all the John Berger texts about visual culture, there's a less-popular essay that beckons us to understand our relationships with animals, weighing whether to eat flesh; to breed or sacrifice; to worship animals or adopt their very characters for our anthropomorphic selves.
    This sound-text engages these questions and blurs the lines among documentary, imagined narrative and sound art. Brother and sister farmers (vegetarian and carnivore) consider their work humanely raising animals for slaughter. Woven within this tension is a voice listening towards metaphor: a goat moves into the neighborhood—heard, but never seen. Who dreams this animal self?

    Bio: My audiophilia whispers into the radio's ear with documentaries and poetic narratives airing globally via artist-curated programming. Listening along the central California coast, I teach production artistry online at The New School for Public Engagement and curate Earlid, a virtual space for adventurous sound artistry and curious listeners.

    2. Vonverhille & Punk Is Dada - Cerf call moses

    Ode to Algorithm
    Before the 20th century everything lived inside a painting in the next century everything will live inside the screen. We must solicit the move otherwise we will never freely walk into the screen we will have always been pushed or dropped from above and the cracks of impact will be relentlessly visible for the rest of eternity.

    Perception is habitual and automatic, it negates the sublime PUNK IS DADA and Vonverhille hack the arts to suspend our perception. They toy with our image ecology leaving us somewhere between the life and the living. They are deeply unpersonal therefore they are personal to all they let the viewer ponder subject, object, sound or animal - Life trapped inside motionless matter they are the future.

    At times like these we recognize the body or the shell after its been molded and manipulated through diets, surgery, saline solution body modifications such as bagel heads or synthol freaks but the norm is much stranger babies been born from frozen eggs and organs grown for commodities. Life is not what it seems my dear…. The art as object is priceless waste.
    Sleep is the only thing capitalism can’t tap into so lets dream.

    3. Gregory Kramer - Four Minutes, Eighteen Seconds Ago (abandoned farmhouse, Botswana, dusk)

    Four Minutes, Eighteen Seconds Ago was created from field recordings I made with several audio recorders in various locations in an abandoned farmhouse in Botswana. The title refers to the immediate past, but the composition also references ghosts of the distant past. The placement of recorders at various points in the house references the time traveled between them (e.g. you hear footsteps approaching before each one is shut off), and time travel is, again, a reference to the presence of former inhabitants. Intermingled with the dusk recording was a recording of the same location from several days earlier.

    Bio: Gregory Kramer (BFA in Film/Video from Pratt Institute) is an artist who composes with field recordings, found materials and musical instruments. Taking inspiration from his archaeological curiosity of abandoned places, he searches for ghosts among the ruins and seeks to unearth evidence of forgotten histories through sound. He recently returned from the Sonic Mmabolela South African residency, and had work selected for Sonom International Sound Art Festival in Mexico. He has performed and created installations, had work in a Movement Research dance performance and participated in a Norwegian Experimental Co-Lab on a lighthouse island.

    4. Volker Hennes - Ambassador Batter

    From album - Emperor Ambassador (Entr’acte in 2015)

    An exciter slowly glides down a tilted and unstretched drumhead which is affixed with a contact microphone whose signal is sent back to the exciter. Each kind of drumhead determines the distinct motion and response of the exciter, resulting in particular gliding speeds, feedback frequencies, dynamics and tonal progression. The gliding procedure on each drumhead is 
repeated and superimposed up to 20 times.

    Bio: Volker Hennes (born 1976) studied at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne; works as composer and sound-artist focussing on methods of production and reproduction of temporal and local organized sound - synthesized and replicated incidences.

  • Carrie Skinner - Victor, is there anyone there?

    4th September 2016 @ 3:30 pm - 3:45 pm

    Carrie Skinner
    ‘Victor, is there anyone there?’

    The Australian radio production of ‘Frankenstein’ starring George Edwards in many of the roles was originally broadcast in thirteen parts on ‘2GB Radio’ Sydney in 1931. An unfaithful appropriation of Mary Shelley’s novel, the serial will be exhumed and rebroadcast over thirteen days. Listeners are invited to visit Creative Lab at the CCA at 3pm, 29th Aug -11th Sep (except 3rd Sep).

    Some-where/some-when an actor, their costume, a script and a prop. Someone is trying to get through to you. From the darkness of an imagined/invisible performance space, emerges the body of a voice. Hello? Who’s calling? A polymorphic interpolator talking over the radio, reaching over out of one blind space into another. Victor, is there anyone there?

    Biography:

    Carrie Skinner is a visual artist and undergraduate of the Glasgow School of Art, she completed an MLitt in Theatre Practices at Glasgow University in 2015. Her practice instinctively foregrounds thematic, structural and aesthetic devices emanating from a long standing engagement with the epic narratives of Gothic literature.


  • Fergus Kelly - Bovine Oboes

    4th September 2016 @ 3:45 pm - 4:00 pm

    This plunderphonic collage was created to mark ex-Wire member Bruce Gilbert's 70th birthday, using an array of sources connected to Bruce's early musical influences and related popular culture references. Some of the sources have been abstracted to create electronic soundscapes, others have been left recognisable.

    Some of the elements in this piece are woven deep in the mix, and won't necessarily reveal themselves on first listen. Other elements move around the stereo field to create a sense of momentum in a soundworld I like to think of more in terms of a radio play or cinema for the ears.

    Fergus Kelly is an artist from Dublin working with field recording, soundscape composition, invented instruments and improvisation. He has shown nationally and internationally and received many Arts Council awards.

    In 2005 he established a CDR label and website, Room Temperature, as an outlet for his solo and collaborative work, producing the CDs Umoor (2005), Material Evidence (2006), Bevel (2006) (with David Lacey), A Host Of Particulars (2007), Strange Weather (2007), Leaching The Pith (2008), Swarf (2009), Fugitive Pitch (2009), Long Range (2010) and Quiet Forage (2015) (with David Lacey).

  • Glasgow Soundscapes - Nichola Scrutton

    4th September 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

    Glasgow Soundscapes: Place, Space and Memory

    All the works included here are inspired by the city of Glasgow, Scotland. Most include field recordings, and all evoke or respond to different aspects of this vibrant and complex city through sound – sometimes captured directly, sometimes altered, composed, or performed for poetic effect. It is intriguing to find that many of these pieces, even as they respond to immediate, present experience, happen upon the layered resonances of history and memory encountered throughout Glasgow – from its Victorian buildings to the accents of its voices. Many thanks indeed to the composers/sound artists who contributed their work and the accompanying notes.

    Nichola Scrutton, curator: I am a freelance composer and sound artist based in Glasgow, Scotland. I studied at University of Glasgow, completing a BMus, an MMus in composition, and a PhD in electroacoustic composition and voice funded by the AHRC (portfolio: Hearing Voices, 2009). My work spans a range of self-directed projects and interdisciplinary collaborations. Some ongoing interests are at the core of my sound art/composition practice: the association with place and space through field recordings; sonorous voicescapes (expression, words, extended techniques); improvisational processes, often using interactive technology. More recently, I have started to slow down the creative process by incorporating contemplative practices and engaging with different artistic media to open new perspectives on my work in music and sound.

    NOTES

    Lateral (11’15) – Nichola Scrutton (www.nicholascrutton.co.uk)

    Sounds of river water, spoken names of places, information from tidal charts, and pulsing radio signals serve as aural signposts, rooting Lateral in the real world. But the flow of water and rhythms of a vocal landscape contribute to a sense of multiple, metaphorical spatial and historical resonances, and to ideas of flowing with and against the current. Lateral was originally commissioned as a site-specific work for High-Slack-Low-Slack-High – a suite of
    audio works curated by artist/researcher Minty Donald for Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art (2012), in which five artists were invited to respond creatively to the tidal River Clyde that runs through the heart of the city. The Lateral installation/performance took place at the bottom of Dixon Street, Glasgow – a major thoroughfare that leads from the city directly down to the river. Subsequently, I recreated the original work as a fixed composition.

    Final Times (5’04) – Alistair MacDonald (www.alistairmacdonald.co.uk/)

    Final Times is a short piece of "cinema for the ears" based on sounds I recorded in the Scottish city of Glasgow where I live and work. It is a vibrant city and the piece uses some of the sounds that I carry around in my head. We hear people moving about in cars, buses, trains and particularly the Subway whose sound is unique. There are voices with distinctive local accents (the title of the piece is heard in the shout of a newspaper seller), a football crowd, a pub and more intriguing sounds like the rhythmic clicking of an escalator in the huge, Victorian railway station. Sounds and the images they suggest are transformed, and their juxtaposition and layering makes new meaning. The clicking of the escalator becomes a train rattling on rails; voices are stretched into the hum and squeal of the subway train, which returns in the sound of a distant bagpiper on the street, shimmering like heat haze. Final Times was commissioned by the BBC in 1998 as one of a series of pieces relating to particular places in Scotland.

    Post-Industrial Broadcast #1 (9’39) Nichola Scrutton

    Post-Industrial Broadcast #1 (2013) portrays a fictional place or state in a process of transformation. Inspired by Glasgow as a great post-industrial city, the piece draws from a range of source materials including hydrophone (River Clyde) and contact microphone recordings, a radio, the human voice, twoway radios, and an oil radiator. Compositionally, the piece unfolds in a wave-like structure. Subtle sounds of water emerge and recede giving a sense of constant flow, while sheets of sound – long, loosely articulated sound gestures – are agitated and interrupted by unpredictable micro-collisions and interference, with hints of human presence. Post-Industrial Broadcast #1 won the 2013 International Alliance of Women in Music Pauline Oliveros Award for Electroacoustic Media.

    Interlude (10’08) – Bethan Parkes (www.bethanparkes.net/)
    Interlude was created from recordings made in a tunnel underneath a busy road in Glasgow. The tunnel runs parallel to a river and perpendicular to the road above, both of which present bounded, directional fields of flow. The tunnel itself invites a passage through – in the darkness, the light from the other end offers an irresistible draw, and the path, which the stone structure encloses, has its own sense of directionality. However, the acoustic qualities of the tunnel contrast with these linear spatialities: the acoustic reflections are everywhere – a broad, multi-directional field of sonic feedback, which rounds out the traffic sounds from above; explodes the linear passage of footsteps and voices; and distances and smoothes the flow of the river into a rush of dampened white noise that hovers in the darkness.

    Aria for Voice and Plastic (4’41) – Nichola Scrutton
    The two-part composition Aria for Voice and Plastic/Aria for Breath and Glass was created for a concert presented as part of the citywide Charles Rennie Mackintosh festival held in Glasgow in 2006. The inspiration for the two Arias came from two small mixed-media panels, Opera of the Winds and Opera of the Sea, created about a century earlier by Scottish artist Margaret MacDonald Mackintosh. After studying these finely symbolic visual works my thoughts turned to three main issues: debris, materiality and cycles. Each Aria explores an interaction between human vocal expression and mass-producedmaterials used in everyday life.

    Non-Members Night Out (21’50) – Mark Vernon (www.meagreresource.com/)

    A number of years ago I suffered from a bout of prolonged back pain. Bad reactions to the high doses of pain killers meant social drinking was out of the question and combined with the inability to stand for longer than 10 minutes without excruciating pain this began to seriously curtail my social life. On the odd occasion I did go to the pub I would invariably leave after an hour or so. The pubs, karaoke bars and clubs became symbols of my exclusion. It was around this time that I began making recordings of the outdoor nightlife on my weekly shadowy walks. I was drawn to the back doors of clubs, deserted alleys behind bars, non-places where the filtered bass of the discotheque made the sense of isolation more palpable.

    This soundscape, created with sounds familiar to anyone used to prowling the streets of a big city late at night, features surreptitious recordings made outside Glasgow nightclubs, skulking around back doors and fire exits in the early hours of the morning. Despite the obvious presence of others these sounds are strangely isolating. They document only the exterior, the periphery. The listener is excluded from the exciting and lively atmospheres that can be heard at a distance through the barriers of closed doors, brick walls and back alleys. You can hear the party going on but you haven’t been invited. These recordings also document the effects that high volumes of music and the city’s club culture have on the surrounding architecture and acoustic environment. A doorframe rattles in time, but at a slight delay, to the music within. A closely miked recording of a broken but intact windowpane at the rear of on

    1) Sarah Angliss - The Bows

    Bio: Sarah Angliss is a composer, musical automatist and sound historian. Her work combines acoustic and robotic instruments with Max, electronics, found sounds and field recordings. Sarah’s work explores the uncanny properties of technology, revealing resonances between European folklore and early notions of electricity and sound. A prolific live performer, Sarah also works in theatre, creating distinctive sounds which blur the boundaries between sound design and musical composition. Her theatre sounds have most recently been heard in The Old Vic, London, where she evoked the overwhelming clamour of modernity in O’Neill’s Expressionist masterpiece The Hairy Ape (directed by Richard Jones).

  • Sarah Angliss - Signalman

    4th September 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 6:30 pm

    Embracing and updating the Radiophonic tradition, Sarah Angliss presents a spatialised sound poem inspired by The Signalman, Charles Dickens’ ghost tale for the industrial age. In this fractured retelling, Angliss plays with psychoacoustics and liminal sounds to conjure spectral resonances, ghostly cries and the gloom and dampness of a deep railway cutting. As sounds and music unfold, an isolated signalman becomes all too aware of a future horror he can do nothing to undo. This piece is created in collaboration with vocal artists Colin Uttley (adult) and Nicholas Gowing (child).. For maximum spatial effect, please listen with headphones.

  • D Balay - Meanwhile, In Fukushima

    4th September 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

    A collaborative sound project reaches out to the people of Fukushima, through music, poetry and sound.

    Selections from the “Fukushima open sounds” library curated by Dominique Balaÿ.

    http://fukushima-open-sounds.net/

    1) Tomoko Momiyama - I Saw time under a Cherry Tree
    2) Carl Stone - Threnody
    3) Maximin Johnco – Le Fleau
    4) Montessuis – The Glowing Tree
    5) Aurelie Lierman – The Girl, the Turtle and the Earthquake
    6) Roxanne Turcotte - Fukushima
    7) Christian Vogel – Candle Song

    Shortly after the disaster of Fukushima Daishi, a Japanese artist group gathered around the figure of Otomo Yoshihide. A project is born early, Fukushima Project!, a call for creation that has led to a festival, located in Fukushima, and a series of events around the world (London, New York, Bangkok, Seoul, Singapore , Paris …). I was honored to work in conjunction with Otomo Yoshihide and John Zorn’s to one of these events at The Stone, New York. On August 15, 2011, WebSYNradio, the web radio station that I created and manage, did a live broadcast from The Stone bringing a tray of world-renowned musicians.

    Following this festival, webSYNradio wished to remain available to the project Fukushima! and continue to « act » with a new project for 2012: « Meanwhile, in Fukushima … »
    The principle of this new project is simple: travelling to Fukushima with a lightweight material, to record the sounds of « normal » life in Fukushima and meet people involved in the various initiatives undertaken by the collective Fukushima!

    In parallel to my own recordings, a call for contributions was launched with the aim of collecting sounds of Fukushima to build a “Fukushima open sounds” library. The tracks compiled here are selections from that archive.

    “Meanwhile, in Fukushima …” is a sound collaborative project led in Fukushima.
    With the support and partnership of INA GRM (French national institute of audio visual – Research Music Group) and France Musique (French national public music radio), the journal Droits de Cité, creative radio webSYNradio, Radio Campus Bruxelles, Radio Sonic (festival City Sonic, Bruxelles) and multimedia laboratory APO33.

    1/ 
TOMOKO MOMIYAMA
    I Saw Time, under a Cherry Tree (electro acoustic, 17’30)
    This piece was created by Tomoko Momiyama partly at INA / GRM during her artist residency, summer 2012.

    Carl Stone introduced me to Tomoko Momiyama, a young composer, riding on a set of artistic practices and cultures (she lives in Japan and studied musicology at Stanford University USA) ). We met several times in Tokyo. She gave me some valuable contacts (especially Koji Nagahata, a professor from the University of Fukushima, whom we still regularly work with). Tomoko and me had even planned a trip to Fukushima together, which in the end didn’t take place (unfortunately). So we each visited Fukushima separately. She took the opportunity to make her own field recordings which she used in her work. With great sensitivity and great modesty, her contribution translates corruption and profound change in the relationship with Nature caused by the nuclear disaster.
    Here you have Tomoko in her own words about her approach and her contribution to the project: « I went to ask the trees in Paris what they thought about the situation in Fukushima. It was in the summer of 2012, over a year after the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami. “I Saw Time, under a Cherry Tree” uses voices of these Parisian trees, as well as sound recordings from Fukushima, Tokyo, Aix-en-Provence, Geneva, and Paris. In Fukushima, I visited Bakkamiki in Minami-Soma, which is believed to be the birthplace of an old and mysterious children’s song called “Kanchororin.” Deep in a foggy mountain by a steep river, the forest of Bakkamiki is now too highly radiated for people to enter. Even in the rest of Minami-soma, and in many other parts of Fukushima, children cannot play outdoors for too long now due to high radiation. “I Saw Time, under a Cherry Tree” quotes this folksong, as well as a poem of the same title I wrote in Japanese. »

    2/ CARL STONE
    Threnody, for the victims of Fukushima (electro acoustic, 10’23)
    This piece was created by Carl Stone at INA / GRM during his artist residency, in September 2012.

    The first artist that I invited to INA / GRM was Carl Stone, American composer, pioneer of electro acoustic since the 70s, and Japan lover who also lives there six months a year.
    Prior to our Fukushima collaboration, we had worked together on two programs for webSYNradio. In 2012, Carl got convinced he had to take a position towards this catastrophe that generated a lot of trouble in Japan. A catastrophe that was arousing an amazingly strong reaction from a community that is usually reluctant to protest. It is those protests and the profound changes in Japanese society as a consequence that got Carl interested to take action too. His piece is dedicated to the victims of the disaster, and clearly depicts the events that took place in Tokyo as a response to the inertia and also the manipulation of the population by the Japanese politics and mass media.
    However, in several interviews conducted together (and available on the project website), Carl Stone recalls that this nuclear disaster has extraordinarily complex impacts, and it would be a mistake to judge too hastily the peoples’ reactions.
His composition reflects this complexity, while always keeping the victims of the disaster in mind, even though the government’s official position is that this nuclear disaster has made no victims at all.

    3/ BÉRANGÈRE MAXIMIN & COLIN JOHNCO
    Le fléau (electro acoustic, 9’44)
    This piece was created by Berengere Maximin & Colin Johnco at INA / GRM during artist residency, summer 2012.

    Bérangère Maximin is an electroacoustic music composer and performer, based in Paris. « She creates landscapes that pull you in and hold your attention with a keen sense of detail and a subtle sense of surprise. One of the most personal and passionate new voices in electroacoustic music » – John Zorn
    I got Bérangère Maximin involved thanks to John Zorn (again !): Being French I already knew her work and we even once worked together for a program at webSynradio. A few years earlier, she had released her first album at Tzadik, John Zorn’s label, we talked together about this album and her work and that’s how we connected! For me, it was appropriate to invite an artist who had not expressed an opinion on this subject (Fukushima), and in her work rather reflects a form of musicality very cheerful, non-discursive, almost dancing.
    Bérangère (who brought Colin Johnco in the project) did not give me the recipe of her composition, but this is a composition that probably only works on a musical and abstract level. She didn’t make any use of my field recordings that were available on the Fukushima website.
Johnco and Maximin borrowed the words of Edward Bond funct


  • Home Handover 2 - Éric La Casa and Jean-Luc Guionnet

    4th September 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 9:15 pm

    In 2010, we, Éric La Casa and Jean-Luc Guionnet, were invited to the "Uninstal" festival in Glasgow, for the purpose of participating in an exchange of ideas on the relationships of art to a given society and working on the format of this questioning. We decided to reactivate our Maison [home] Project (begun in 2001), and to create a series of recordings with some inhabitants of Glasgow, in their personal spaces. Based on predefined rules, including the single-sequence shot as a filming method, the five people who accepted our experiment at home became the actors in a story about their everyday life. On that occasion, while searching for a space’s individual resonance, which has always motivated our collaboration, we drifted toward an expansion of the field and we sought to re-examine the vernacular dimensions of everyday life, while considering music and the voice to be a catalyst of the living environment — a way to strike a chord (accord), in all senses of the term.

    Here, we present this composition under the form of a score that possibly could be performed by others, in other places, in other contexts, while also believing that the stakes of our labor will reveal themselves more directly in the course of this process than they would from a description evoked by an external point of view.

    Biography

    Eric La Casa - For approximately 20 years, while listening to the environment, he has been questioning the perception of reality and has expanded the notion of what’s musical today. Through his aesthetic of capturing sound, his work fits equally into the fields of sound art and music. As a result of his in-situ listening processes, he creates forms (of attention) that creep into the venues, slowly infuse there,
    and become other possible spaces. In the same way that the letter stimulates a country’s reading, the in situ aesthetic object renews our relationship to space and landscape.

    Jean-Luc Guionnet - musician, visual artist, Thinking through sound, acting: It’s a matter of encountering an exterior — an instrument (organ/saxophone), a theoretical question (what is rumor?), a collaborating friend ... From there follow an open series and an explosion of themes that reinject themselves into practice: thickness of the air, darkness inherent to listening, pidgin, sound as the signature of what it’s not, or even the relationship of time that elapses with the current weather. And the emotion that’s sought as being created from the friction among all these strata to give time.

  • Dave Madden - House of Ursher II

    4th September 2016 @ 9:15 pm - 10:00 pm

    This is my honor to a book I read many times as a kid. Re-reading parts of Martian Chronicles - particularly Usher II - I get the really important directive that Ray Bradbury felt he had to address: he wasn't just worried about book burning, but the elimination of creativity.

    I wanted to provide a futuristic soundtrack for the setting of 2026 where the stories take place, though call back to the 1960's of Radiophonic Workshop scores. And I am doing a kind of Peter and the Wolf.

    Dave Madden’s (aka dj webern, nonnon, Chomsky at the Bit, Wasabi P) earliest memories are Magical Mystery Tour, “Paint it Black” and the guy who claimed to be the Lizard King. He uses percussion, found objects, laptop, turntables and an obsessive bending of synthesizers into the way they are not supposed to react to perform and / or DJ all over the world, from Montreal to Chico, California, in universities, museums and coffee shops, preferring the types of crowds who enjoy John Cage back to back with Anti-Pop Consortium.

  • State of Slumber - DinahBird & JP Renoult

    4th September 2016 @ 10:00 pm - 9:00 am

    An eleven hour, non-stop, international sonic survey of snores, grunts, dribbling and whatever else we do as we slumber the night away. Recorded all over the world, from Paris to Tasmania, Copenhagen to Italy, and broadcast during Sao Paolo’s Biennale 2012.

    A State of Slumber is the first edition of the world snorescape project, a snorecast compiled and edited by DinahBird. It was produced for Knut Auferman and Sarah Washington’s Mobile Radio Sao Paolo, a three month radio art station created for the 30th São Paulo Biennial, 2012. It was also adapted as Snoring by Numbers (with JP Renoult) for an installation at the Cork Artists Collective Guesthouse (Ireland) in september 2013 and broadcast as a part of Mobile Radio’s Dubbelradio, a 24 hour two-frequency festival, Stockholm, Sweden, 2013, Anna Friz‘s the City at Night transmission project for Radio Cona and features as a part of her mix exploring the environment, morphology and taxonomy of the little people inside the radio for Radio Macba.

    Thanks to the sleeping souls who took part in the first ever (to my knowledge) snorescape : Valérie Vivancos, Julia Drouhin, Ward Weis, Etienne Noiseau, Carlo Giordani, JP Renoult, Rodolphe Alexis and Marianne Decoster-Taivalkoski.

    DinahBird and Jean-Philippe Renoult are sound and radio artists based in Paris. They often work together making radio works, installations and soundtracks.
    Recent works include Take Flight, a composed soundscape starring planes, drones and frequencies, made for ABC’s Creative Audio Unit and A.V.I.O.N, a sister installation inspired by the parallel world of aircraft navigation systems. DinahBird’s radio relay record A Box of 78s is having a rest after it’s 18 month trip around the world. Jean-Philippe’s audio graffitti project, TagAudioLoops was last seen and heard at Waverly train station....

    The sound of the bell on a bike is meaningful for me. The bike is a memory of my childhood when I thought the world was peaceful and beautiful. But now, as the world has developed, despite modern conveniences, the purity of my memory has been lost. Almost daily, we are confronted with tragedies and natural disasters. It is as if the Earth is trying to take revenge on us as we try to control and destroy it. Perhaps we should revisit the purity of childhood and live in harmony with the Earth.

    Bio: Dai Yue (b. 1993) is from Huai’An, Jiangsu in China. She began learning vocal music at age of 16. Currently, she is studying composition with Dr. Robert McClure and pursuing a master’s degree at Soochow University’s School of Music in Suzhou. Her music embodies the philosophy that music can be found all around us if we focus our listening and sharpen our attention.

    2. Vonverhille & Punk Is Dada - Acidwash (v1)

    Ode to Algorithm
    Before the 20th century everything lived inside a painting in the next century everything will live inside the screen. We must solicit the move otherwise we will never freely walk into the screen we will have always been pushed or dropped from above and the cracks of impact will be relentlessly visible for the rest of eternity.

    Perception is habitual and automatic, it negates the sublime PUNK IS DADA and Vonverhille hack the arts to suspend our perception. They toy with our image ecology leaving us somewhere between the life and the living. They are deeply unpersonal therefore they are personal to all they let the viewer ponder subject, object, sound or animal - Life trapped inside motionless matter they are the future.

    At times like these we recognize the body or the shell after its been molded and manipulated through diets, surgery, saline solution body modifications such as bagel heads or synthol freaks but the norm is much stranger babies been born from frozen eggs and organs grown for commodities. Life is not what it seems my dear…. The art as object is priceless waste.
    Sleep is the only thing capitalism can’t tap into so lets dream.

    Bio: PUNK IS DADA Lives and works in Berlin. She studied at The Glasgow School of Art in 2008 and went on to attend the European Graduate School Summer Institute in 2015/16. She has exhibited widely across Europe most recently at the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Zürich, Bar Barbette, Berlin “Vomit Apocalypse” for Glasgow International and Kunsthalle Zürich and has contributed creative and critical texts to Websafe2k16, Oncurating.org - Alienation and Estrangement and Polar Reflex edited by Reese Riley.She was recently awarded the 8 th ARTWARD Junior Prize and also pioneered the spectacle Ying Colosseum and is working heavily with the concept of Cosmic Depression – The theory of depression caused by digital utopia (Paradise without Ecology).

    3. Francis Heery - Cascade (edit)

    Cascade is a delicate abstract soundscape, incorporating synthesized textures that evoke the sci-fi weirdness of bio-acoustic phenomena. Cascade was created using patches built in Max/MSP to generate quasi-random processes using impulses, delays, filters and drones. These were used as raw material for hours of improvisations, which also included live instruments. The recordings were then edited to create a finished work with echoes of H.P. Lovecraft, David Lynch, David Attenborough...

    Bio: Francis Heery (b 1980) is an Irish sound artist and composer. His compositions have been premiered by some of the world’s leading performers of contemporary music and his sound art has been performed / broadcast in many countries in Europe and in the USA. Cascade is available on Lamour Records. He currently lives in Berlin.

    4. Pytchblend - Studio Fever ft. Brett Crummett

    One of my favourite friends of old was a tortured crazy genius called Brett Crummett. We shared so many eye-opening experiences together. Sadly I found out that he's no longer with us, so here's a montage of us. The voice and guitar is Brett, the rest is my doing (with a recording of the Moss Side riots in Manchester). I only wish I'd recorded more of him, because this snippet doesn't really do him justice.

    From the ‘Sweat’ album: Sketches from the biomechanical heart of England's bleak, industrial North West. Come with me now to the subconscious borderlands of sleep and wakefulness. Explore the sensory phantasmata of hypnagogic dreamlets. Feel static-like frisson sensations tingling down your spine. Join me on the journey into the heart of etherCore

    5. Nat Grant – Precious

    Precious blurs the boundaries between functional object and musical instrument. This work was created over 2013-15 and involved collecting hundreds of old keys - keys to things that didn't work or exist anymore, or keys that had been found: any number and size/shape as long as they were no longer needed or wanted. Thanks to word of mouth and call outs on social media more than 300 keys were donated to the project. The keys were then used like percussion instruments, recorded and digitally manipulated/collaged to create the final work.

    bIO: Nat Grant is a percussionist and sound artist from Melbourne, Australia. Her work explores intersections between improvisation, chance and intention in the development of sound as a sculptural medium. Her solo performances integrate electronic processing and sampling with acoustic percussion instruments and found objects. Nat holds a PhD in Music Composition from the Victorian College of the Arts (University of Melbourne). She performs regularly at venues around Melbourne, and is frequently engaged in projects and performances that invite her audience to be part of the process or realisation of an artwork.

    6. Timo Kahlen - Daylight (Radio edit)

    The sound of neon lights flickering on and off. Glaring 'daylight' humming and buzzing overhead, in my studio. The sounds above my head - in a very minimalistic way - reveal why the glaring, glowing daylight of neon lights in a business or studio is in no way comparable to the changing intensity, movement, temperature, color and hue of the open sky.

    (((A sensual exploration of the technology that surrounds me in my studio. Again, please feel free to find your own interpretation and points of reference.))))

  • Homes of Tomorrow 1 - James Torrance

    5th September 2016 @ 9:30 am - 10:00 am

    A four part exploration of modernist architect Ernö Goldfinger’s utopian drive to build for a better world. Taking form as radiophonic documentaries, each episode is constructed over a collage of field recordings and found sound, all having been sourced from in and around Goldfinger’s four major London buildings.

    Episode 1: Landscape
    An overview ofthe social, political, architectural and artistic landscape from which ErnöGoldfinger arose, alongside the post war development of high rise buildings and the polarising aesthetics of brutalism.

    Biography: James Torrance is a London-based audio engineer, phonographer and radio producer. Sound art and field recording work previously exhibited at the V&A, 2 Willow Road, The Muse Gallery, InTransit Festival and City & Guilds London Art School. Other work includesregular radio and podcast productions and a forthcoming music and spoken word collaboration with the artist Bob & Roberta Smith.

  • Darren McClure - Primary Locations

    5th September 2016 @ 10:00 am - 10:30 am

    Originally released as a 45 minute album, consisting of three tracks. This is an edited version, all three tracks mixed into a 30 minute piece for radio. The concept behind the recordings began with an investigation into the relationship between sound and light. Specifically, the conversion of the colour centre wavelengths along the visible light spectrum into audio frequencies.

    Location recordings at areas containing primary colours were made and woven into the compositions to create site-specific soundscapes. Each piece unfolds slowly, and is sonic snapshot of three primary locations, their ambience and the sound of their colours.

    Darren McClure is a sound artist living in Matsumoto, Japan. His work focuses on texture, space and atmosphere. Sound sources are both analogue and digital, hardware and software, incorporating found sounds and field recordings to lend an organic, tactile quality to the pieces. His main intent is to create sound to both zone out to and zone into, a balance of widescreen drones and more minimal, abstract ambience.

    He has released solo and collaborative work on a number of labels, across various formats. His music has also been used in conjunction with video work, gallery exhibitions and documentary shorts.

    5th September 2016 @ 10:30 am - 11:00 am

    Short works including:

    1) Nichola Scrutton - Dwelling/In Dialogue (17:00)

    2) Angharad Williams - Breezer (6:30)

    Details:

    1) Nichola Scrutton - Dwelling/In Dialogue (2009)

    Dwelling/In Dialogue is one of a triptych of voice works where I consider multiple notions of the title Dwelling. Structurally this piece is in three movements with each movement transforming into the next continuously. Under the ‘dwelling’ umbrella, I used three metaphors to articulate events or states in a series of solo improvisations:
    i) dust (essence)
    ii) cycle (flow/journey)
    iii) echo (memory)
    The improvisations were layered together fully intact, with the compositional process restricted to editing gestures and textures in time and space to enhance or magnify relationships/conflicts that emerged by chance as each layer was added.
    http://www.nicholascrutton.co.uk

    2) Angharad Williams - Breezer

    Breezer, slow and intimate, fizzy and sweet, maybe a bit salty too? Imagine your first encounter with it, it is divine.

    Angharad Williams is a multi-disciplinary artist that was born in Bangor, Wales. She completed her MA in Fine Art at the Piet Zwart Institute.
    Recent exhibitions, screenings and performances include Hergest: Haid, WallRiss, Fribourg, w/ Mathis Gasser; Open your heart to me, Broadcast # 1: Love Songs, Das Weisse Haus, Vienna; Assemble Relatives, TENT, Rotterdam; The Enthusiasts, The Woodmill down under, Te Tuhi, Auckland; NO FATE, San Serriffe, Amsterdam; Hergest 1, Rough House w/ Mathis Gasser, Glue Factory, Glasgow International, Glasgow; Every dog has his day, Watch-It Gallery, London.

  • Graham Lambkin - Humble Music (Los Angeles)

    5th September 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm

    Humble Music (Los Angeles) is a tape work focused on a performance given in the basement gallery of the 356 Mission space, Los Angeles.

    The genesis of this piece comes from a 90 minute tape made with James Rushford, Judith Hamann and Manuel Lima, in preparation for a concert the following night (of which James and Judith both had parts) to announce the opening of my 'Marble on the Rot' exhibition. We took in the acoustic potential of the building, and chose the basement gallery to make some test recordings using a walkman with external mic. There was no audience present.

    The piece collages the most interesting passages from that session, and adds overdubs taken from alternately placed --and oft cleaner-- recording sources also in use at that time, piercing the gauze of tape hiss and adding a greater dynamic sense to the composition. The domestic disruption that starts the piece was present on the cassette prior to recording, and felt aesthetically in step enough to warrant inclusion.

    Graham Lambkin: voice, tapes, cello, objects. James Rushford: voice, objects. Judith Hamann: voice, cello. Manuel Lima: voice, flutes plus the pre-recorded sounds of (friend and neighbor) José Pérez.

    1. Saltings - Manifest (for radio and double bass)

    A 9min soundscape for double bass, radio, and electronics, written by Andrew Cooke and performed by Saltings. Its goal is for all instruments to play off each other and create similar timbres, the main driving influence being the constant mercurial sound of the radio. When played live, both the bass and analog radio are improvised and simultaneously treated through live programming. This is a recent studio version of the piece, which shall hopefully appear on our next album.

    Bio: Musical soundscapes, drones and experiments that explore the eerie of our pastoral surroundings.... Saltings was born originally in the mind of Andrew Cooke, a Dublin-born Bristol- based composer and performer. Over the summer of 2015 he wrote and released an eponymous album under the name Saltings, attempting to musically capture the 'English Eerie', a small, possibly made-up movement he read about in an article somewhere. Now he performs live with the help of Caitlin (double bass) and Liz (cello), the three of them unleashing avalanches of noise whenever possible.

    2. Viv Corringham - Melbourne Calls

    In Melbourne, Australia, I met three sound-oriented people. I asked them to take me to places where sound is the key element. Warren Burt, a composer, took me to the loud, exuberant Southern Cross Station. Anthony Megan, an acoustic ecologist, did a soundwalk where animal, bird and city sounds exist together. Catherine Clover, an audiovisual artist interested in the language of birds, chose a quiet canal path. Later I went to these three places alone and responded to their soundscapes with vocal improvisations. This work includes (unprocessed) field recordings, comments from my three guides and my singing.

    Bio: Viv Corringham is a British vocalist and sound artist living in New York. Her work includes performance, installations, radio and soundwalks. Performances draw on an international career in improvised and experimental singing, while her sound work explores people's relationship with familiar places and the link to personal history and memory. Twice selected as a McKnight Composer Fellow and recently resident artist at Harvestworks Media Arts, NYC, her work has been presented in Europe, Asia, North America and Australia. “(Her) voice is a thing of wonder, ranging from lilting folkiness to speaking-in-tongues wildness."

    3. Louise Wilson - Young Bird

    Young Bird - a 4 minute piece I produced whilst taking classes at the Institute of Sonology in the Hague. I devised the track as an exercise that would allow me to experiment with techniques I had learned on the course. I recorded the vocals onto two 26 second tape loops stretched around the studio and manipulated field recordings of The Hague's rose-ringed parakeets using SuperCollider and Trevor Wishart's CDP.

    4. Sarah Boothroyd - Power and Freedom

    A round-the-world tour of protests in Canada, England, France, Spain, Ukraine, the United States, and beyond. This radiophonic work was inspired by contemporary composer Luigi Nono's use of fragmented and layered political texts, as well as his method of treating 'real world' artifacts as potential music. Creative Commons field recordings provided by Matthias Kispert and Arno Peeters.

    6. AO Hirsch_Summe 1 – In a Seldom Land

    After numerous concerts and performances throughout the last years, Summe 1 is Andreas O. Hirsch‘s first release on makiphon. The album concentrates on peculiar soundscapes and drony pieces, carefully interwoven by means of pitched harmonicas, electric guitars, mini fans, delays and the electric palm leaf, an electroacoustic invention of the artist. The eight titles evoke a space somewhere between interstellar geography (Maxwell Mountains – a plateau on planet Venus), abstract physics (Teilchenbeschleuniger), botanical scenery and animality: Kemeri 5 am features nocturnal crane calls that Hirsch recorded on a bike trip in a swamp near Riga while he was busy with decoding bird messages via morse code. Opossum Pravda is dedicated to the tenacious marsupial that likes to wander around at night and which is able to hang from trees by its tail. Kautschukwaage seems to suggest an exotic setting and provides a link to the rubber bands which one hears resonating in the miniature. Sleeve designed by the artist. 300 copies. Mastered by Joseph Suchy.

Champagne Murders is a collection of eight spoken word pieces written, recorded and produced by myself. Each short fiction deals anecdotally with some dubious 'murder'. Whilst conceived and previously presented as a suite, each Murder functions as a self-contained piece, and so could be presented individually if appropriate.

    Bio: David Steans (born 1984, Stockport) is an artist and writer currently based in Leeds, England. Since 2015 he has worked as a Lecturer on the BA Fine Art programme at Leeds College of Art. Recent exhibitions, projects and screenings include: The Kippenberger Challenge at De Appel Institut Library, Amsterdam (2016); Mega Armageddon Death - Long Version at ArtRotterdam Intersections, Netherlands (2016); Mood Board at À CÔTÉ DU 69, Nantes, France; Display Show at Eastside Projects, Birmingham (2015); I'MTen at IMT Gallery, London and Medieval helpdesk at Leeds International Medieval Congress (2015).

  • Secluded Bronte - Dark August Variations

    5th September 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

    Artist: Secluded Bronte

    Title of work: Dark August Variations

    Description of work

    I don’t want to pre-load the listener with a listening guide but to me there’s something enigmatic about this hörspiel. Perhaps the dissonant gong like chords at the very beginning cast a large dark question mark over the entire thing. Its fairly mercurial or chameleonic, it shifts in time and space and as it does so it also shifts in timbre. Appropriately, then, it is also partially a travelogue featuring fragments from three audio diaries that my colleagues and I maintained whilst recording this project in Rotterdam.

    There are multiple layers of sounds; tape manipulation, amplified acoustic objects,
    analogue synthesis and sound processing, field recordings, speech. Some of the sounds have a raw, brute quality. Miscellaneous formats and techniques were used for recording in order to create timbral variation and diversity, and real physical presence. There is, as mentioned previously, much in the way of transformation. The script is a poem composed of fragments from absurd adverts for luxury products, descriptions of wines, directions, text appropriated from Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights, transcribed dialogue from a straight to video American horror movie and texts which have been arrived at via OuLiPo-lite algorithmic approaches and collage. Lines chosen randomly from multiple sources like Rudolf Rocker’s “Anarcho-Syndicalism” to “The Mabinogion” were sculpted into what sounds like coherent speech via multiple languages using translation apps. So, what started in English is translated into Spanish, Welsh, Russian, Japanese, Italian, Arabic, Dutch and then back into English. This work is most evident in the last 25 minutes of the piece.

    Dark August Variations ends with a sequence of soliloquies for three voices, it seems dark and austere which is just what most of Europe looks like right now. Enjoy.
    Richard Thomas, November 2014.

  • Found Sound Answering Machine Episode 1 - John Morin

    5th September 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 3:30 pm

    Found Sound Answering Machines is a series of analog recordings gathered from answering machine tapes found at thrift stores, estate sales and junk piles. In the rush to embrace new technology, we frequently discard the old outdated models just as fast without considering what personal memories and left-behind, intimate moments they might contain.

    Radio Eyes is an active listening project by California-based sound artist John Morin that seeks to explore the potentiality of personal sonic space and offers new ways of seeing and hearing the world around us. The work reminds us that if seeing is believing, than what we hear can be unbelievable.

    5th September 2016 @ 3:30 pm - 3:45 pm

    Carrie Skinner
    ‘Victor, is there anyone there?’

    The Australian radio production of ‘Frankenstein’ starring George Edwards in many of the roles was originally broadcast in thirteen parts on ‘2GB Radio’ Sydney in 1931. An unfaithful appropriation of Mary Shelley’s novel, the serial will be exhumed and rebroadcast over thirteen days. Listeners are invited to visit Creative Lab at the CCA at 3pm, 29th Aug -11th Sep (except 3rd Sep).

    Some-where/some-when an actor, their costume, a script and a prop. Someone is trying to get through to you. From the darkness of an imagined/invisible performance space, emerges the body of a voice. Hello? Who’s calling? A polymorphic interpolator talking over the radio, reaching over out of one blind space into another. Victor, is there anyone there?

    Biography:

    Carrie Skinner is a visual artist and undergraduate of the Glasgow School of Art, she completed an MLitt in Theatre Practices at Glasgow University in 2015. Her practice instinctively foregrounds thematic, structural and aesthetic devices emanating from a long standing engagement with the epic narratives of Gothic literature.

  • Home Handover 3 - Éric La Casa and Jean-Luc Guionnet

    5th September 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

    In 2010, we, Éric La Casa and Jean-Luc Guionnet, were invited to the "Uninstal" festival in Glasgow, for the purpose of participating in an exchange of ideas on the relationships of art to a given society and working on the format of this questioning. We decided to reactivate our Maison [home] Project (begun in 2001), and to create a series of recordings with some inhabitants of Glasgow, in their personal spaces. Based on predefined rules, including the single-sequence shot as a filming method, the five people who accepted our experiment at home became the actors in a story about their everyday life. On that occasion, while searching for a space’s individual resonance, which has always motivated our collaboration, we drifted toward an expansion of the field and we sought to re-examine the vernacular dimensions of everyday life, while considering music and the voice to be a catalyst of the living environment — a way to strike a chord (accord), in all senses of the term.

    Here, we present this composition under the form of a score that possibly could be performed by others, in other places, in other contexts, while also believing that the stakes of our labor will reveal themselves more directly in the course of this process than they would from a description evoked by an external point of view.

    Biography

    Eric La Casa - For approximately 20 years, while listening to the environment, he has been questioning the perception of reality and has expanded the notion of what’s musical today. Through his aesthetic of capturing sound, his work fits equally into the fields of sound art and music. As a result of his in-situ listening processes, he creates forms (of attention) that creep into the venues, slowly infuse there,
    and become other possible spaces. In the same way that the letter stimulates a country’s reading, the in situ aesthetic object renews our relationship to space and landscape.

    Jean-Luc Guionnet - musician, visual artist, Thinking through sound, acting: It’s a matter of encountering an exterior — an instrument (organ/saxophone), a theoretical question (what is rumor?), a collaborating friend ... From there follow an open series and an explosion of themes that reinject themselves into practice: thickness of the air, darkness inherent to listening, pidgin, sound as the signature of what it’s not, or even the relationship of time that elapses with the current weather. And the emotion that’s sought as being created from the friction among all these strata to give time.

  • The Yellow Book Episode 1 - Rachel Cattle

    5th September 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 5:30 pm

    Inspired by the radical 1890s publication The Yellow Book ,this three-part radio series imagines the colour yellow as a subversive baton passed through time.

    Each half hour programme constructs a specific but different soundscape, taking cues from stream-of-consciousness writing, repetition and multiple voices as explored in The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1892), Novel on Yellow Paper by Stevie Smith (1936), and The Golden Notebook by Doris Lessing (1962).
    Originally broadcast on Resonance fm, July 2015

    1. The Yellow Wallpaper
    The ‘important information’ to be ‘highlighted’ in ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’ is a deliberately DIY, homemade approach, including description’s of a 1970s mail art collective, lists of objects and descriptions of working processes amongst the background noise of everyday life. The wallpaper becomes the space in which to ‘create your own terrain’ ( Jutta Koether).

    Biography

    Currently a researcher at Kingson's Contemporary Fine Art Research Centre, Rachel Cattle’s practice explores oblique and sideways strategies linked to counter cultural and intuitive approaches. Discoveries brought about by becoming a stylus and the reinvestigation of experimental and overlooked work by artists and writers (often women) are cut-up and re-examined both digitally and live as performances and works utilizing text, drawing, print, object, voice, and video.

    Recent exhibitions and performances include Graphics Interchange Format, Focalpoint, The Yellow Book, Resonance fm, Project, Maureen Paley, Artist Self Publishers Fair, ICA, Gaming Gaming, New Shelter Plan, Copenhagen, Black Hole Hums B-Flat, Barbican.

    1) Nichola Scrutton - Word of Mouth

    Word of Mouth uses the human voice as the only sound source. Structurally, the piece uses phonetic gestures to project the emergence of vocal sounds on the breath, which are extended and woven together to evoke metaphorical and spatial associations.

  • Graham Lambkin - Humble Music (Los Angeles)

    5th September 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 6:30 pm

    Humble Music (Los Angeles) is a tape work focused on a performance given in the basement gallery of the 356 Mission space, Los Angeles.

    The genesis of this piece comes from a 90 minute tape made with James Rushford, Judith Hamann and Manuel Lima, in preparation for a concert the following night (of which James and Judith both had parts) to announce the opening of my 'Marble on the Rot' exhibition. We took in the acoustic potential of the building, and chose the basement gallery to make some test recordings using a walkman with external mic. There was no audience present.

    The piece collages the most interesting passages from that session, and adds overdubs taken from alternately placed --and oft cleaner-- recording sources also in use at that time, piercing the gauze of tape hiss and adding a greater dynamic sense to the composition. The domestic disruption that starts the piece was present on the cassette prior to recording, and felt aesthetically in step enough to warrant inclusion.

    Graham Lambkin: voice, tapes, cello, objects. James Rushford: voice, objects. Judith Hamann: voice, cello. Manuel Lima: voice, flutes plus the pre-recorded sounds of (friend and neighbor) José Pérez.


  • Eduardo Abrantes - Supernatural Soliciting

    5th September 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 7:00 pm

    Supernatural Soliciting (21’56’’ - Copenhagen, June 2016) A gathering of sonic digressions through the flat landscape of the remote island of Læsø, in the northeast coast of Jutland peninsula, Denmark. Supernatural Soliciting borrows its title from a line in Macbeth, where friction between omens and expectations leads to crisis. It exudes longing, instants of playfulness and a sense of mystery manifest in improvised synchronicity.

    Author’s bio: Eduardo Abrantes (b. 1979 in Lisbon, Portugal) is an artistic researcher, sound artist and filmmaker. He is currently based between Stockholm and Copenhagen, and his recent practice has focused on the exploration of the dynamic crossing between sound and embodiment, mostly in the context of how everyday experience is enacted and brought into a heightened awareness focus through performative practice and strategies. Apart from his own self-directed work, he has been collaborating as soundscape designer and video-documentarist under the moniker “pairsofthree” – the story behind the name has to do with sheep and Iceland, he will tell it on demand.

  • Vestibule Sonore - Fantasy of Brams

    5th September 2016 @ 9:30 pm - 10:00 pm

    FANTASY OF BRAMS (30') -an audio documentary by Olivier Ginestet (Aka Vestibule Sonore)

    BRAMS, International Laboratory for Brain, Music and Sound Research, is a unique centre dedicated to research excellence, located in Montreal, Canada. The research centre is devoted to the study of human auditory cognition with a focus on neuroscience.
    But what's a sound? How does it comes to us? What do we feel by listening? What's happening deep inside our brain?
    With all this questions and including myself in some studies, I've composed this fantasy, this sound game, an hybrid combination of documentary and hörspiel.
    Visible and invisible meets audible and inaudible.
    Everything's just a matter of listening.

    BIO
    After 5 years, working on French broadcasting, he turns to audio documentary. Since he signed more than dozen sound creations: documentary, soundscape, experimental pieces and soundtrack for plays. Living now in Montreal-Canada, he also proposes to discover the narrative and creative potential of sound through public listening events, offering a wide range of radio and sound works. He also provides training in sound recording and editing in order to form next generations.
    The rest of the time, he taught French to newcomers at workshops in which the sound material is never far away.


  • Domestic Weather - Mark Vernon

    5th September 2016 @ 10:00 pm - 11:00 pm

    “Can this cold weather possibly be caused by the wireless waves which, I understand, travel at 186,000 miles per second? You see, if the ether waves travel at such a prodigious speed through the air, they surely must create quite a stir and a draught, especially as I understand that they pass through, and not round the house.” (from Technical Talks To ‘Listeners’, Popular Wireless, Jan 5th,1924)

    Domestic Weather is a parallel exploration of radio transmissions as carriers of meteorological data and the effects of weather on the propagation of radio signals.

    Through a series of interviews ham radio operators describe the positive and negative effects that atmospheric conditions have on their broadcasts. Their voices are interwoven with examples of meteorological information conveyed through radio such as weather, shipping and aviation forecasts and transmissions intercepted from Radiosondes – small weather probes that are sent into the atmosphere by balloon. Interspersed throughout the programme are a number of ‘Domestic Weather’ experiments that recreate classic Foley sound effects for weather using only household items. Further to this, taking household appliances as an analogy for a variety of weather conditions, real audio recordings of weather were micro-broadcast to small radios inside or in the vicinity of these devices with the resulting duet recorded – for example, the sound of a tornado coming from inside a tumble dryer, heavy rain in the shower or howling winds alongside a hairdryer – thus drawing attention to the micro-climate of our own domestic environment.

    Special thanks to Wave Farm, Gavin Mitchell and all members of the West Of Scotland Amateur Radio Society.

    Commissioned by Wavefam and Kunstradio as part of their ‘Climactic Climate’ series. The programme first aired on ORF1, Kunstradio, Vienna in 2015 with subsequent broadcasts on WGXC 90.7 FM in the Greene and Columbia counties, USA, Radiophrenia, Glasgow and in excerpts as part of an overview of the series on Deutschlandradio Kultur, Germany.

  • Beespace - Ranjit Bhatnagar

    5th September 2016 @ 11:00 pm - 7:00 am

    This is a document of one day in the life in a beehive in Durham, NC. Sound artist Ranjit Bhatnagar used light, touch, and environmental sensors to document activity in the hive, and used the data to create a generative soundscape. Pollinator Synthesizer was exhibited live at Moogfest 2016 in Durham.

    Made with support from Burt's Bees, Bee Downtown, and Moogfest.

    Ranjit Bhatnagar is a sound artist who works with technology, language, and found materials to create interactive installations and musical instruments. His works have been exhibited across the United States and Europe. In his annual Instrument­-a-­Day project, now in its ninth year, he creates a new homemade musical instrument each day of the month in February.
    Ranjit recently worked with the art collectives Flux Factory and Rabid Hands to build a large-­scale musical installation at Palais de Tokyo in Paris. His interactive sound work, Singing Room for a Shy Person, commissioned by Amsterdam’s Métamatic Research Initiative, premiered at NYC’s Clocktower Gallery in 2013; and later moved to Museum Tinguely in Basel for the Métamatic Reloaded exhibition, and was shown at the Stadsschouwburg Amsterdam.

    In 2013, he launched his speech/­music instrument, Speak ­and ­Play, with Margaret Leng Tan at the UnCaged Toy Piano Festival; presented work at Qubit's Machine Music Festival; and premiered a calligraphy­ and ­gesture ­based score for the Brooklyn Ballet with calligrapher David Chang. His sculpture Stone Song for the Caramoor Centre's Sound Arts Festival was installed at the Neuberger Museum at Purchase College, New York and in 2015 became a part of Caramoor's permanent collection.

  • The Knob, The Finger & The It - Poller Wiesen #1 (2013)

    6th September 2016 @ 7:00 am - 8:00 am

    Cologne based trio The Knob, The Finger & The It (Tobias Grewenig, Andreas O. Hirsch, Volker Hennes) are enthusiastic sound tinkerers between electronics and electro-acoustics. One of their favourite occupations is to go camping with their battery powered miniature equipment, thus taking live electronics outside and blend them with the sounds of the environment. Poller Wiesen #1 was taken as a single recording on the river bank of the Rhine river passing through Cologne, involving sounds of trains passing by, an ambulance, a crow (…). Currently the trio is working on their first release ASTRO CAMPING, soon out on makiphon.

    1. Tom Miller - Spectral Wars

    (a.k.a. Comrade Squelch) Interval signals are short, repeating radio transmissions which allow shortwave listeners to tune their antennas to distant stations. Repetitive fragments of melody, speech, birds, animals, or other signals are broadcast periodically to identify stations, time the starting and stopping of programs, and hold down frequencies against rivals. In conflict zones, interval signals can overtly carry covert political messages across national borders. Some of the signals heard in this mix were originally broadcast from the occupied territories and liberation fronts of past wars. At times, both official state-sponsored and clandestine rebel broadcasts may be captured across the waves of static drift.

    Bio: Tom Miller, a National Endowment for the Arts award-winning composer and librettist, has created sound installations, radio art, and music-theatre for the American Anthropological Association, American Museum of Natural History, Anchorage Museum, Art in General, Bates College, Cities and Memory, Ethnographic Terminalia, Franklin Furnace, Linden State Museum of Ethnology, Proteus Gowanus, P.S. 122, Pulse of the Planet, WFMU-FM, WKCR-FM, and more. He holds a B.A. in Music from Wesleyan and Ph.D. in Anthropology from Columbia University, and has taught at New York University’s Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music, Pratt Institute, Rutgers University, Berkeley College, and the University of Iceland.

    2. Julian Scordato - Earth song

    Low frequency radio waves propagating in the Earth's atmosphere, ionosphere and magnetosphere assume distinct characteristics in relation to emitting source as well as receiving point. Considering the electromagnetic radiations generated by natural disturbances, the author aimed at transposing the above phenomena into an audio feedback network in order to explore the effect of space-time parameter variation. The simple delay combined with filtering permits to place sounds in new spatial configurations, while the spectral delay modifies the sounds in their structure. The result is a kaleidoscope of sounds floating in a dynamic system with ever-changing variations.

    Bio: Julian Scordato studied Composition and Electronic Music at the Venice Conservatory of Music. He completed a Master's Degree in Sound Art at the University of Barcelona. Co-founding member of the Arazzi Laptop Ensemble, he has worked as a Research Assistant for the Sound and Music Processing Lab at the Padua Conservatory of Music. As an author and speaker, Scordato has participated in conferences presenting results related to interactive performance systems, generative art, and feedback audio networks. His electroacoustic music and audiovisual works have been performed/exhibited in prestigious festivals and institutions in Europe, North America, South America, and Asia.

    3. Svantje Lichtenstein - Echo Enjoys

    The piece is based on a text of mine about the myth of the nymph Echo and the words Ovid is describing her. It is at the same time a text, which is using the sound of the words to transfer the meaning as well, and how I receive the text if I would read and listen a text in English or German. Echo damned to only repeat the words of other, so she uses
    a trick to convince Narziss to hear and love her etc. The text could be also create a chorus, which I tried in a performance in NYC last year. The sampling of the sound piece uses different computer voices to repeat the repetition and the sound of the words on the paper etc…

    4. Craig Dongoski & Robert Scott Thompson – The Sleeping Hostage

    Poised somewhere between ambient music and avant-garde acousmatics, Orbital Lullaby presents an enveloping and mezmerizing sonic montage of over 75 minutes. Highly immersive and hypnogogic listening from two acknowledged masters of sonic art.

    Craig Dongoski is a Full Professor at Georgia State University in Atlanta, Georgia USA. Dongoski’s has been exploring and articulating the mark in its most basic form (both graphically and aurally) for much of his career. The intention is that through varied interpretations of the marks that a contribution is made to the art historical dialogue within the origin of human expression. Professor Dongoski has performed and produced work each year on the island of Kefalonia, Greece since 2011. He also has a considerable body of work, entitled The Primates NoteBook, employing his drawing-sound experiments and innovations in tandem with chimpanzees through the Language Research Center in Atlanta, Georgia. He was twice nominated for a Ford/Rockefeller Foundation Fellowship in New Media. Dongoski also has released CD’s on Hydra Head Records and Aucourant Records.

    7. Nick Kuepfer - Absorbing

    manual tape edit with percussion; exploring rhythm with randomness using concepts inspired by the sounds of wildlife, the act of creating rhythms and melodies from the collection of sound within an environment. While listening to one's surroundings in nature you begin to hear the communication of sounds following no perceived human concepts of rhythm, on closer listen you begin to hear patterns and cohesion of sounds - this piece attempts to re-create these concepts using percussion and bells.

    Bio: Nick Kuepfer is a Montréal-based musician and sound artist (born and raised in Stratford, Ontario). As a solo musician he arranges and produces experimental multi instrumental pieces with live sampled tape loops, field recordings, static repetition, and drones with a tendency for experimentation of sound, texture and dissonance. In addition he has performed solo internationally and has collaborated with many musicians as tour support as well as an active member in the groups ¼ Tonne, Hrsta and formerly Elfin Saddle, No Nature and Aidswolf. His sound work has been exhibited in various galleries including The Tom Thomson Art gallery in Owen Sound, Ontario, New Adventures in Sound Art in Toronto, Modern Fuel Artist Run Centre in Kingston, Ontario, Algoma Art Gallery in Sault Ste. Marie, Gallery Stratford in Stratford, Ontario. He attended the artist residency program, The Arctic Circle in Svalbard in 2012. He has released material with the Montreal record labels, Constellation records, Drophead and Howl! Artist Collective as well as Toronto’s Standard Form and Arachnadiscs records.


  • David Ryan & Kelcy Davenport: Recitativo – Fragments after Lucretius and Negri (2016)

    6th September 2016 @ 9:00 am - 9:30 am

    Recitativo – Fragments (after Lucretiusand Negri) explores both the relationship between the speaking voice (as a kind of narration) and the possibility of creating an open work that integrates an improvised, material-based approach to sounds. It interweaves fragments from Lucretius’ poem ‘On the Nature of Things’ and Antonio Negri’s political reworking of these ideas in the late 1990s and early 2000s. The work does not attempt to illustrate these ideas but uses them as the basis for making sequences of sounds and recitations that will act as potential vehicles for them. This version has been made specifically for Radiophrenia.

    Biographies

    David Ryan is a visual artist and musician. He has worked with many contemporary composers including Earle Brown and Christian Wolff. Screenings of his video works have taken place at Konzerthaus, Berlin, Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatoire, Issue Project Space, New York, Darmstadt Ferienkurse forNeueMusik; V22 Space, London (2012); Logos, Ghent (2013), and Qo2 in Brussels, Belgium (2013), Venice Music Biennale (2015).

  • Alessandro Bosetti - the Notebooks

    6th September 2016 @ 11:00 am - 11:30 am

    In the archive of the Janacek memorial in Brno, lies a somehow odd treasure: a series of very tiny notebooks where composer Leoš Janáček used to annotate scraps of spoken language he would hear during his daily life in musical notation.

    Each one of those speech-melodies, as we call them today, taken roughly from 1904 till 1928, is a small sound photograph of a mundane and ephemeral situation, a fragment that let us blink into an acoustic reality long gone.
    Janacek practice and obsession reminds of the contemporary habit of taking field recordings with portable devices but it was made with pen and paper much before those devices had became available.

    Contemporary italian composer Alessandro Bosetti has been a practitioner of the “music of speech” himself and in his work on the notebooks he has tried to bring back to life what he has imagined to be the surrounding situation for those Janáček’s annotations using his voice and creating several electroacoustic tableaux in the setting of the different rooms of Mies van der Rohe’s Villa Tugendhat.

    Conscious of having stumbled upon a listening treasure and a great poetic gesture he listen to the world (and let us listened to the world) through the ears of Leoš Janáček. Bosetti reconstructs an imaginary reality around those magical and mysterious traces tracing back a tradition of “musique anecdotique” starting with the Brno composer and continuing with “musique concrète” composers as Pierre Schaeffer and Luc Ferrari.

    Biography

    Alessandro Bosetti (Born Milano, Italy, 1973) is a composer, performer and sound artist currently based in Berlin. Most of his works delve into the musicality of spoken language and sonorous aspects of verbal communication. He utilizes misunderstandings, translations and interviews as compositional tools.

    He has been presenting pieces for voice and electronics blurring the line between electro acoustic composition, aural writing and performance in such leading venues as the GRM/Presences Electroniques festival in Paris, Roulette in NYC, The Stone in NYC and Cafe OTO in London among many more all over Europe, Asia and the United States.

    One of the most innovative radio artists of his generation he created a vast body of work of hybrid, award winning, text-sound and radio compositions for the main Radio and Electro Acoustic Music studios in Europe, most notably for the historical WDR’s Studio Akustische Kunst in Cologne and Deutschland Radio Kultur in Berlin.


  • Sian Gledhill - Southwark Park

    6th September 2016 @ 11:30 am - 12:00 pm

    All over the city there are places, and journeys, that encapsulate the rhythms of everyday life. Southwark Park brings together an ambiguous static shot of a path through London’s Southwark Park and the contemplative audio of contributors observing and describing the same, filmed footage of the transient pathway.A slow meditation on an image, the work does not exist until sound and image come together, inferring new narratives and associations around the ‘thought’.

    For Radiophrenia, I have adapted the work to make an alternative sound piece, allowing the observations of the contributors to paint an oral landscape of a scene that only they are witness to.

    Biography

    My work is closely connected with place and history, uniquely engaging with familiar and perhaps forgotten landmarks and social histories. Revelling in my on-going curiosity with ephemera and nostalgia, I procure anonymous and intriguing archives sourced from Ebay and ephemera fairs. I use these to stage a re-encountering of the familiar. Through performance and film I conduct playful interventions, opening up new dialogues with a place and its history.

    I am interested in the way we use speech to communicate; the distinctions between the read and the spoken, the formal and informal, the rehearsed and the spontaneous.


  • Amble Skuse - Balancing Act

    6th September 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm

    Noise, our voices become noise, our names become noise, inaudible, unheard, filtered out.

  • Gregory Whitehead - Potato God Scarecrow

    6th September 2016 @ 12:30 pm - 1:00 pm

    Potato God Scarecrow

    Being a freely associative disorder for washed up voices, assembled in the approximate shape of a beaver lodge.

    GREGORY WHITEHEAD has created more than one hundred radio plays, essays and acoustic adventures for the BBC, Radio France, Australia’s ABC, NPR and other broadcasters. Often interweaving documentary and fictive materials into playfully unresolved narratives, Whitehead’s aesthetic is distinguished by a deep philosophical commitment to radio as a medium for poetic navigation and free association. In his voice and text-sound works, he has often explored the tension between a continuous pulse and the eruption of sudden discontinuities, as well as linguistic disintegration and decay. As a vocalist, he has performed as both soloist and chorister in a wide variety of ensembles since his days as a boy soprano.

    1. Vonverhille & Punk Is Dada - Eveningeasel (v1)

    Ode to Algorithm - Before the 20th century everything lived inside a painting in the next century everything will live inside the screen. We must solicit the move otherwise we will never freely walk into the screen we will have always been pushed or dropped from above and the cracks of impact will be relentlessly visible for the rest of eternity.
    Perception is habitual and automatic, it negates the sublime PUNK IS DADA and Vonverhille hack the arts to suspend our perception. They toy with our image ecology leaving us somewhere between the life and the living. They are deeply unpersonal therefore they are personal to all they let the viewer ponder subject, object, sound or animal - Life trapped inside motionless matter they are the future.
    At times like these we recognize the body or the shell after its been molded and manipulated through diets, surgery, saline solution body modifications such as bagel heads or synthol freaks but the norm is much stranger babies been born from frozen eggs and organs grown for commodities. Life is not what it seems my dear…. The art as object is priceless waste.
    Sleep is the only thing capitalism can’t tap into so lets dream.

    Champagne Murders. Eight channel audio piece. Original music by Clear Phantom and Stamina Nudes. Voice acting by Georgia Boukla, John Mylotte, Bad News, Keith Senior, David Steans, Hazel Steans, Jennifer Steans and Bryan Smith. Champagne Murders is a collection of eight spoken word pieces written, recorded and produced by myself. Each short fiction deals anecdotally with some dubious 'murder'. Whilst conceived and previously presented as a suite, each Murder functions as a self-contained piece, and so could be presented individually if appropriate.

    Bio: David Steans (born 1984, Stockport) is an artist and writer currently based in Leeds, England. Since 2015 he has worked as a Lecturer on the BA Fine Art programme at Leeds College of Art. Recent exhibitions, projects and screenings include: The Kippenberger Challenge at De Appel Institut Library, Amsterdam (2016); Mega Armageddon Death - Long Version at ArtRotterdam Intersections, Netherlands (2016); Mood Board at À CÔTÉ DU 69, Nantes, France; Display Show at Eastside Projects, Birmingham (2015); I'MTen at IMT Gallery, London and Medieval helpdesk at Leeds International Medieval Congress (2015). His writing was included in Cadavere Quotidiano (2014), an anthology of writing by contemporary artists published by Project X Foundation for Art & Criticism.

    “I tell stories and invent histories, as well as subvert existing ones. I work across writing, sound, moving image, performance and installation. I am influenced by horror, as well as documentary modes, adapting and appropriating them in order to complicate familiar representations. Recent work has centred around the spoken word, including for example the rapped and sung delivery of fictive texts that unpick their own ‘telling’ through wordplay, repetition, ‘corpsing’ and vocal effects.” David Steans 2016

    3. Kathleen Messer - ROBOTWASP

    'ROBOTWASP' is a short acoustmatic composition, created from a small amount of similar sounds, using Pro Tools as well as a selection of GRM plugins. The main focus lies within the abstract of 'Organic Vs Machine'.
    'ROBOTWASP' develops from an initial 'robotic' state – the sounds are electronic, mechanized and sustained. Over the course of the piece the soundscape morphs into an aesthetic that is more organic, living and gestural.
    The shuffling gestural sounds towards the end are reminiscent of a dense volume of fluttering wings. The initial and end material create a contrast in terms of 'musical material' while there is coherence in the similar original sounds from the wind up toys.

    Bio: Since graduating with a BMus Hons from the University of Glasgow, I am involved in a range of projects involving performing, composing, leading workshops & promoting.
    I enjoy working with the following mediums; Algorithmic Composition (using Grid Matrixes), Minimalism, Soundscapes, Tala (Indian Rhythmic Patterns), Avant Garde Music, Experimental Music, Musique Concrete, MaxMSP, as well as Electronics & Tape.
    I enjoy exploring the electronic side of Sonic Arts and acousmatic music, along with the texture's and timbre's of art music - I recently composed for Theremin in which I combined these elements of music. In my free time I play in a Riot Grrrl band.

    4. Jamie Cooper - Mega dark zero (I remember nothing)

    Mega Dark Zero draws its title from the book titled Capitalist Realism by Mark Fisher in which the author talks about our time as a zero hour

    Biography: Born in England and displaced to Scotland in 1977 and a graduate
    of the Sculpture and Environmental Art course at Glasgow School of Art. Jamie

    5. Chin Ting Chan - Rituals

    Rituals is inspired by various ritual processes of different cultures. Some rituals involve elaborate processes, while others are simply daily rituals inherited from the tradition. While most rituals are diversely different, they all engage a sequence of actions according to a prescribed order guided by a mythical belief. This piece takes inspirations and sonic elements reminiscent of the ritual processes and forms a sonic collage that alternates constantly between hyper-real and surreal soundscapes, and creates a multi-layered texture of timbral and rhythmic complexity. Some of the sound sources include air, wind chimes, metals, water, piano resonance and various drum patterns, processed almost exclusively with Cycling 74’s Max program.

    Bio: Raised in Hong Kong, composer Chin Ting (Patrick) CHAN is Assistant Professor of Music Theory and Composition at Ball State University. His music has been featured throughout the North and South Americas, Europe and Asia; at festivals such as the International Computer Music Conference, the International Rostrum of Composers, IRCAM’s ManiFeste, the ISCM World Music Days Festival, June in Buffalo, the mise-en music festival and the Wellesley Composers Conference, among many others.

    6. Gregory Kramer - Riis

    Riis was composed using the sounds of the Marine Parkway Bridge across Rockaway Inlet. Named for the beach and park which is reached by the causeway, the bridge is a favorite sonic spot of mine in New York. It is just above Dead Horse Bay, a litter strewn area, so named I've heard, because it was once a dumping area for horse carcasses used by a glue factory.

    Bio: Gregory Kramer (BFA in Film/Video from Pratt Institute) is an artist who composes with field recordings, found materials and musical instruments. Taking inspiration from his archaeological curiosity of abandoned places, he searches for ghosts among the ruins and seeks to unearth evidence of forgotten hi


  • Josh Hill - live studio performance

    6th September 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm

    No presence in time and space –no aura. A storified list of pre-recorded, pre-existing voices that've been collectively tailored for a collective recipient/listener. Dismantled and plagiarised into a simulacrum of a chat show to dismantle the self.

    If history must have a dust bun or it will be a dust bin. Our aim, as the transmitter, is to make your searching/listening fuller, overbearing, unignorable... to e-literally push the envelope towards the deadening hand placed on the record everything button and to instruct it to begin churning the wheel of decomposing potentiality. To Just Do It. To Not Do This.

    If there's no time to listen to this stuff now, why would you care about these voices? Relinquish the past, become unburdened, it's the only way you'll move forward and finally enter the creative potential of forgetting. It Isn't Happening Now.

    A performance using a SP-404 sampler, Philicorda and WEM amplifier. The voices will be comprised of recycled, reappropriated poetry readings from John Chick, Hans Plomp, Gianni Menichetti, Peter Lamborn Wilson, Allen Ginsberg, Peter Orlovsky, Steven Taylor, Harry Hoogstraten, Hans Plomp, Eddie Woods, Nanao Sakaki etc. The method of composition will work through the tropes of chat show radio... the jingle, the bed, the main presenter, the co-presenter, the caller... and draw upon the inconsequential muzak that sits underneath spoken word recordings, a dated trope that extends from Ken Nordine’s bar room jazzified slumbers to Kathy Acker’s deconstructed goth punk guitar meander and the work of Over the Edge radio.

  • Found Sound Answering Machine Episode 2 - John Morin

    6th September 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 3:30 pm

    Found Sound Answering Machines is a series of analog recordings gathered from answering machine tapes found at thrift stores, estate sales and junk piles. In the rush to embrace new technology, we frequently discard the old outdated models just as fast without considering what personal memories and left-behind, intimate moments they might contain.

    Radio Eyes is an active listening project by California-based sound artist John Morin that seeks to explore the potentiality of personal sonic space and offers new ways of seeing and hearing the world around us. The work reminds us that if seeing is believing, than what we hear can be unbelievable.

  • Carrie Skinner - Victor, is there anyone there?

    6th September 2016 @ 3:30 pm - 3:45 pm

    Carrie Skinner
    ‘Victor, is there anyone there?’

    The Australian radio production of ‘Frankenstein’ starring George Edwards in many of the roles was originally broadcast in thirteen parts on ‘2GB Radio’ Sydney in 1931. An unfaithful appropriation of Mary Shelley’s novel, the serial will be exhumed and rebroadcast over thirteen days. Listeners are invited to visit Creative Lab at the CCA at 3pm, 29th Aug -11th Sep (except 3rd Sep).

    Some-where/some-when an actor, their costume, a script and a prop. Someone is trying to get through to you. From the darkness of an imagined/invisible performance space, emerges the body of a voice. Hello? Who’s calling? A polymorphic interpolator talking over the radio, reaching over out of one blind space into another. Victor, is there anyone there?

    Biography:

    Carrie Skinner is a visual artist and undergraduate of the Glasgow School of Art, she completed an MLitt in Theatre Practices at Glasgow University in 2015. Her practice instinctively foregrounds thematic, structural and aesthetic devices emanating from a long standing engagement with the epic narratives of Gothic literature.

    walking, moving, preparing, tuning, rehearsing, playing.
    before of the Opera, or after visiting a pregnant girlfriend in the hospital.
    the sound of water, so earthling.
    and the beating of a little heart.
    a lift.

    it’s actually (a piece of) life itself, where the tuning and rehearsals before the Opera refers to the development of the foetus in the womb, the path from hospital to home is path of life in culture/nature, the final lift is birth/death. and heartbeat in water is the main character of the story.
    all that, or the sound that it makes.
    transparent memory.

    So Beast was founded in May 2014 by Katarina Poklepovic from Split (croatia) and Michele Quadri from Bologna (Italy), living and working in Bologna, its an artistic project about experimenting, performing and composing with sound, visual and installations. we performed in Bologna, Parma, Barcelona and Split, in different kinds of shows, from underground situations (DIY festivals Femmebrutal, Barcelona and Traib fest, Trai,Parma), squats, locals, to places like cinema club Kinoklub in Split, artist studios and art galleries (Gallleriapiu, Adiecenze in Bologna). debut album "Kira" will be released on winter 2016 by californian label known for its handcrafted artistic packagings.

  • Zoe Irvine - Travels Together

    6th September 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 4:30 pm

    Travels Together is a radiophonic work on the trail of Alma Maximilane Karlin (1889-1950). Karlin was an extraordinary Slovenian traveller and writer. In the autumn of 1919 she set off on a global journey that was to last for 8 years including South Peru, Mexico, Japan, Korea, Borneo, Australia, New Zealand, Java, Thailand and India... Travels Together covers the beginning of the journey, as Alma leaves her home town of Celje in Slovenia, which was then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and attempts to take a ship to any far away destination which will have her. The work weaves extracts from the first chapter of Karlin's book "Einsame Weltreise" (The Odyssey of a Lonely Woman) together with Zoë Irvine's journeys on the Alma trail.

  • The Yellow Book Episode 2 - Rachel Cattle

    6th September 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 5:30 pm

    Inspired by the radical 1890s publication The Yellow Book ,this three-part radio series imagines the colour yellow as a subversive baton passed through time.

    Each half hour programme constructs a specific but different soundscape, taking cues from stream-of-consciousness writing, repetition and multiple voices as explored in The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1892), Novel on Yellow Paper by Stevie Smith (1936), and The Golden Notebook by Doris Lessing (1962).
    Originally broadcast on Resonance fm, July 2015

    2. Novel On Yellow Paper
    Sentences extracted from a Kim Gordon interview weave between descriptions of Silvia Plath and Delia Derbyshire’s working methods amongst notes, scientific facts and external and domestic sounds, mirroring the characters, thoughts and events that flow in and out of Stevie Smiths novel.

    Biography

    Currently a researcher at Kingson's Contemporary Fine Art Research Centre, Rachel Cattle’s practice explores oblique and sideways strategies linked to counter cultural and intuitive approaches. Discoveries brought about by becoming a stylus and the reinvestigation of experimental and overlooked work by artists and writers (often women) are cut-up and re-examined both digitally and live as performances and works utilizing text, drawing, print, object, voice, and video.

    Recent exhibitions and performances include Graphics Interchange Format, Focalpoint, The Yellow Book, Resonance fm, Project, Maureen Paley, Artist Self Publishers Fair, ICA, Gaming Gaming, New Shelter Plan, Copenhagen, Black Hole Hums B-Flat, Barbican.

  • Zach Poff - The Sun Dialogs

    6th September 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

    The Sun Dialogs is a radio program where recorded stories about the Sun are transformed by solar emissions themselves, as detected by satellites and terrestrial sensors. Ancient and contemporary solar myths are fragmented and remixed according to the patterns found in recent solar data. Some words are obscured by solar flares, stretched by solar wind, or transformed by electromagnetic interference. It is intended as a playful dialog where the Sun's sonified “voice” interacts with human narratives.

    Biography

    Zach Poff is a New York area digital media artist, educator, and maker-of-things. Through his artwork, teaching, and software he examines the tremendous opportunities and challenges that arise from the translation of our experiences into “information”. His recent work has been focused on how traditional broadcasting reverberates into digital media and influences notions of an emerging post-broadcast discourse. He currently teaches Sound Art at Cooper Union School of Art in NYC.

    Dream.Like.Sound is an experimental radio show series dealing with sound and radiophonic creation. It's a monthly sound reverie, a sound contemplation that goes with my research, on a chosen thematic… A work in progress, 10 episodes to un-learn doing radio shows. I broadcast sound works that inspire me, and readings (in french or english), together with my own sound work (sometimes created specifically for the show). Editing and mixing the show is fully part of the creation process. The series have been broadcast on the Radio Campus Angers, Grenoble, Orléans, Paris, Rouen, Tours, Radio U, Radio Grenouille, Campus FM (France), Radio Campus Bruxelles (Belgium), Radio ARA (Luxembourg), Radiophrenia (Scotland)...

    BIO
    Coming from the visual arts, Isabelle Stragliati turned to the sound medium in 2002 through DJing, as an extension of her approach of the film editing (under the moniker Rescue). She then practiced numerous aspects of radio production (as radio host, producer, music programmer, technician and program director) before reconciling it with her creative work. Her productions, involving field recording, documentary, musique concrète or techno, have been broadcast on national radios (France Culture, Radio Campus France), in festivals and events in Europe (Longueur d’Ondes, Futura, Brouillage, Take You There in France, Radiophrenia in Scotland, CinemaInYourHead in Luxembourg), and in contemporary art centers (CNAC de Grenoble, La Criée à Rennes, Casino Luxembourg).

    Cologne based trio The Knob, The Finger & The It (Tobias Grewenig, Andreas O. Hirsch, Volker Hennes) are enthusiastic sound tinkerers between electronics and electro-acoustics. One of their favourite occupations is to go camping with their battery powered miniature equipment, thus taking live electronics outside and blend them with the sounds of the environment. Poller Wiesen #1 was taken as a single recording on the river bank of the Rhine river passing through Cologne, involving sounds of trains passing by, an ambulance, a crow (…). Currently the trio is working on their first release ASTRO CAMPING, soon out on makiphon.

    For All the Sea the Land Remains is fifty-four minutes in length and features field recordings from Dubai, Fujairah (both in the United Arab Emirates), Istanbul, Bangkok and Vientiane in Laos. In addition to the field recordings, Coates plays harmonica, keyboards and guitar alongside digitally-manufactured acousmatic sounds.

    The work samples the songs 'Shagufa' by Geeta Dutt (1953), 'Hum Aur Tum Aur Ye Khushi' by Surendra (from the 1940 film 'Alibaba') and 'Aahen Na Bharin Shikve Na Kiye' by Zeenat (1945). There are also samples from Parviz Kimiavi's 1970 film 'Oh, Protector of the Gazelle'.. Additonal vocal contributions from English performance artist Caroline Smith, Emirati artist Sara Al Haddad and Denise Coates. For All the Sea the Land Remains represents the desperate hope that landscape provides, despite gross overdevelopment. The title suggest that, even though the land is being decimated and desecrated, the sea still is indefatigable.

    Bio: Musician and composer Lin Culbertson’s experience as an improvisor greatly informs her sound work. Her compositions are comprised of synthesized sounds, field recordings, and conventional instruments, and incorporate aspects of indeterminacy in their arrangement and performance. The influence of her graphic design background is evident in the use of graphic scores and visual translation software to include non-musical elements in the sound creation process. She is a founding member of the improvisational unit WHITE OUT, and has performed and recorded with a wide range of artists, most notably Tom Surgal, Jim O’Rourke, Thurston Moore, Nels Cline, and William Winant.

    Last year I worked in the Cork ’s Harbour area as artist in residence at Sirius Arts Center, Cobh co. Cork (Ireland). My project was about the harbour as a setting for acoustic transit : I developed some sound fictions that included transmission codes, navigation
    narratives, signal stations, radar tones, Marconi’s experiments, sirens, Titanic messages...
    These music pieces were later performed live at the “Sounds from a Safe Harbour” festival (Cork, Sept. 2015). During my stay at Sirius I created some “radio frequencies” of my own with electronic instruments in order to include them in the final pieces. The
    tracks I submit to Radiophrenia are de original, isolated “Sirius Radio
    Frequencies” that I created there. What better medium than a radio broadcast to disseminate them ?

    Bio: Basque born guitarist Rosa Arruti has been working since 2000 under the
    anonymous alias Nad Spiro, her solo venture that sets out to build a world
    of electronic textures and sound fictions from a complex processed guitar
    set-up. She has played also with some of Barcelona’s most cutting edge bands
    and kept international collaborations with the likes of My Cat Is An Alien,
    Kim Cascone, The Asterism and MK Ibáñez. Her records have been released by
    the pioneering Spanish experimental label Geometrik.

    5. Fierbinteanu - I Am A Problem

    - dead music for dead critics on dead radios

    Bio: Fierbinteanu is a art-pop music duo consisting of Gabriela Fierbinteanu (vocals) and Cristian Fierbinteanu (computer, bass, vocals). Active in Bucharest/Romania, they have released two albums (Silence As Beauty and the triple Massive Exposure) via Local Records (independent Romanian label) and a double disc in 2012 (The Beauty Of Music). They also put out a maxi-single CD (six renditions of a song called 'Love Goes Round In Circles') and have several other online releases. Winners of the Antonin Dvorak remix contest organised by the Czech Centre, they performed live at Berlin Konzerthaus and in other important scenes in Prague, Cluj, Bucharest. Cristian Fierbinteanu is also a member of Plurabelle, an electronic music duo, with Alex Bala. Their debut LP, "Phantom Pyramid", was released in 2014 by the French label Stellar Kinematics.

    6. Kyle Vanderburg - Reverie of Solitude

    The piece serves as both an exploration of and an invitation to reverie; providing a space wherein the listener is asked to reconsider their idea of what it means to daydream. At once immersed in a familiar crowd hum, lost among the multitude, it is easy to believe that this daydream is not an expression of solitude, but rather a longing for solitude.

    Bio: Kyle Vanderburg (b. 1986) composes eclectically polystylistic music fueled by rhythmic drive and melodic infatuation. His acoustic works have found performances by ensembles such as Brave New Works, Access Contemporary Music, and Luna Nova, and his electronic works have appeared at national and international conferences including ICMC, EMUfest, SCI, CICTeM, and NYCEMF.
    Kyle holds degrees from Drury University (AB), where he studied composition with Carlyle Sharpe and the University of Oklahoma (MM, DMA), where he studied with Marvin Lamb,

    7. Jamie Cooper - Parallel Burner

    Parallel Burner is a techno-alien prophecy of a possible future or possible present, jarring and awkward in nature the electro-spectral voice over describes this race of ghosts that may or may not inhabit our time, that, its for the listener to decide. The artist proposes that we have never existed, if we exist at all it is in a spectral form. Human beings have failed in their endeavours at living realised lives.

  • The Chants Beneath Epsiode Five

    7th September 2016 @ 12:00 am - 1:00 am

    The Chants Beneath Project features a total of 120 newly commissioned sonic works from the world's most exciting sound artists. Each piece makes use of, or responds to, a unique cassette-tape loop created by artist Jeremy Young.
    http://chantsbeneath.net

    Episode five: Time Space
    New work by Jannick Schou, Keycode, Aidan Baker, Hanna Hartman, Giuseppe Ielasi, Jeremy Young, Echo Ho, pinkcourtesyphone, Janek Schaefer and Philippe Cavaleri.

    Jeremy Young is an artist and entrepreneurial strategist working predominantly within the flexible borders of sound media. His creative work includes compositions for recording and live performance, reel-to-reel tape collage, sound-poetry and audio-visual scoring. His main interests as a performer lie in the analog treatment of surface-based audio (piezo mic'd objects and surfaces, manipulating tape and tone via texture and voltage), as he is not concerned with what one hears but how it is heard and through what lens. He has performed and released material throughout Europe, Asia, the US, UK and Canada. In 2014, he was awarded a Media Artists' Assistance Grant by Wave Farm (NYSCA) to create 125 unique artist edition double-sided loop pieces towards developing sustainable audience engagement with the sonic arts, housing all the loops online in a freely streamable living archive and commissioning over 120 sound artists to create new work using each singular piece. Visit the project here to view the list of participating artists.

    Young's main sonic project is a collaborative trio with Ian Temple and Jesse Perlstein called Sontag Shogun that makes use of analog sound treatments and nostalgic solo piano compositions in harmony to depict abstract places in our memory. However, Young recently released his debut duo album with cellist/multi-instrumentalist Aaron Martin entitled, A Pulse Passes from Hand to Hand on Chihei Hatakeyama's label White Paddy Mountain. He also performs in a trio with pianist Shinya Sugimoto and 16mm projectionist Joel Schlemowitz as well in a post-Celtic folk duo with Daniel Merrill called Foxout!. Young has shared the stage with notable artists such as Hauschka, Julia Kent, Aki Onda, Matana Roberts, Jason Lescalleet, Aaron Martin, Dead Rat Orchestra, Barn Owl, Sam Shalabi, Alexander Turnquist, Tom Carter, Noveller, Ben Vida & Koen Holtkamp among many others.

    *Young has been invited to Geneva by the Musée d'Éthnographie to co-curate and conduct a residency series in 2016 exploring the collection of ethnomusicological recordings in the Museum's Phonothèque archive.

  • Commence Exuding the Opaque Vapour part 1

    7th September 2016 @ 1:00 am - 8:00 am

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

  • Homes of Tomorrow 3 - James Torrance

    7th September 2016 @ 9:30 am - 10:00 am

    A four part exploration of modernist architect Ernö Goldfinger’s utopian drive to build for a better world. Taking form as radiophonic documentaries, each episode is constructed over a collage of field recordings and found sound, all having been sourced from in and around Goldfinger’s four major London buildings.

    Episode 3: Community
    "The success of any scheme depends on the human factor". This episode includes a Balfron Tower art project, theGoldfinger’s family journal, the social space of lifts and the question of high rise communities against their low rise alternatives.

    Biography: James Torrance is a London-based audio engineer, phonographer and radio producer. Sound art and field recording work previously exhibited at the V&A, 2 Willow Road, The Muse Gallery, InTransit Festival and City & Guilds London Art School.

  • Clear Spot

    7th September 2016 @ 10:00 am - 10:30 am

    Short works including:

    1) Rebecca Wilcox - There's secondary experience in a primary tone (6:50)
    2) Calum Stirling - The You of You - The Ewe of Yew (9:51)
    3) Secluded Bronte - What? Yes! (2:30)

    Details:

    1) Rebecca Wilcox - There's secondary experience in a primary tone

    Made, with accompanying bookmark, for A Slowly Built Burner, Good Press, 2015

    2) Calum Stirling - The You of You/The Yew of EU

    In this new work Stirling brings spoken word, distressed circuitry and field recordings together as a coded collage. As the world is increasingly subject to predictive algorithms, artists have become highly aware of the metabolic circuits of matter, its agencing and potentiality as a catalyst of biopolitical and economical transformations. In combination with text quotes by Werner Herzog, Susie Orbach and William Gibson in this work Stirling uses the speculative notion of Taxine, the gaseous hallucigenic toxins released by the Yew tree in warm weather as the catalytic search engine algorithm for the arrangement.

    Calum Stirling's wide-ranging practice encompasses sculpture, sound, moving image and architectural intervention. In recent works Stirling has focused on exploring illusion, perception and chance occurrence in relation to both static and mobile sculptural form and space. Recent projects include Burnt Sierra & The Ship of Theseus (WASPS Glasgow & Atelier Am Eck, Dusseldorf) Noumenon (RSA Residency for Scotland, Edinburgh) Meditations Biennale (Poznan, Poland). The artist has exhibited widely in both the UK and further afield for example in Germany, Spain, USA, Australia and Canada and has work in several national collections.

    3) Secluded Bronte - What? Yes!

    Explanatory notes.
    What? Yes! is:
    1. An exercise in call and response.
    2. An exercise in nuance. Just how many variations of "What?" and "Yes!" can one muster?
    3. An exercise in syntax and meaning. Aside from the only constants "What?" and "Yes!" the rest of
    the script is an attempt to write and dramatise utterly meaningless sentences that nonetheless have
    conventional syntax or, at least, encroach upon conventional syntax.
    4. An exercise in bricolage and translation.
    The text is a compilation of original writing - diary material, notes and thoughts - plus material culled
    from miscellaneous texts. The resulting collage was first translated from English into an arbitrary
    selection of languages; Spanish, Welsh, Italian, Arabic, Dutch, Japanese. Subsequently the text
    produced by this process was then translated back into English.
    The translations were made using several processes; translation apps, audio transcription apps,
    dictionaries and language guides.
    5. A reference to Patter comedy the long gone, long forgotten, strand of music hall/vaudeville. To be
    simplistic Patter comedy was exemplified by routines that blended song and dialogue/anecdote/
    observation/reflection and gags. Gilbert & Sullivan and musicals in general also hover around in the
    background/are cousins of Patter comedy.
    Production notes.
    Performed by Adam Bohman, Jonathan Bohman and Richard Thomas.
    Written and produced by Richard Thomas
    Originally recorded for Dutch radio in 2014.


  • Gabi Schaffner - The Journey of the Earthworm

    7th September 2016 @ 10:30 am - 11:00 am

    THE JOURNEY OF THE EARTHWORM
    Gabi Schaffner, 2016, 27 min.

    The earthworm travels on radio frequencies, earthy hacks and conglomerates of audio matter. S/he passes through mosquito clouds (yes, this earthworm can fly!), bird songs, thunderstorms, attends a Finnish summer theatre show, listens to a boy and his mother singing, visits the acoustic remnants of a German garden show, finds happiness in the ringing of porcelain bells and, finally, merges into silence and is gone.

    Voices:
    Teuri Haarla, interview at Galerie Hilbertraum, 16th January 2016, Berlin, Germany; Unknown but stunningly convincing actors of a "kesäteatteri" 2010 in Mid Finland;
    Gibrain and Virpi Nurmi, Gießen, Germany, 2014.

    Gabi Schaffner is an interdisciplinary sound artist, curator, writer and photographer based in Berlin. Travelling forms a vital part of her work – as a source for sound and language recordings but also as “a rite of passage” enabling the artist to explore alternative narrative structures. Her works in the field of radio art have been broadcast internationally, including commissions for Deutschlandradio, SWR, ABC Australia and many more. In 2012 and 2014, she staged in collaboration with reboot.fm a garden radio station in Berlin and Giessen, Hessia. Since 2011 she has been creating several pieces for radia.fm.

  • Making Conversations - Why Make Poetry?

    7th September 2016 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

    Writer and curator Bronac Ferran and Professor Andrew Prescott of the University of Glasgow explore with leading artists, makers, scholars and craftsmen how digital methods are transforming the intersection between making, materiality and practice in different media and art forms

    In this episode 'Why Make Poetry?' - Bronaċ Ferran, curator of the forthcoming show at Glasgow Lighthouse called 'Design and the Concrete Poem' is joined by three poets; Juana Adcock, Colin Herd and Greg Thomas for some readings, and musings on the materiality of the poem along with some live performances. This is part of the Making Conversations series supported by the AHRC Digital Transformations theme leader fellowship and is a prelude to the exciting 'Outside- In Inside-Out' poetry festival happening in various sites around Glasgow later this month.

  • Zoe Irvine - The Edible Pet

    7th September 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm

    The Edible Pet by Zoë Irvine and her son Logan, with contributions from family and friends in Edinburgh, Cornwall and SW. France.

    A story that crosses continents, travels from pet keeping to dining table, taking in some back garden ethics, pet psychology, trans-species music making, dramatic mishaps, life, death and recipes.

    There are some scenes of a graphic nature, this programme contains meat and may not be suitable for vegans or vegetarians.

    Featuring in order of appearance (this will have to be adjusted on final edit): Rebecca & Tarn, Zoë, Robert, Logan & Morris, Daniel & Chloe, Jane Hunter (Edinburgh Chickens), Doreen & Raymond Young, Rab & Jill Lendrum, Pauline Wilson, Margaret Weatherley, Osvanira Alves (Zoologist)

    In memory of Jackie.

    Biography.

    Zoë Irvine is an artist primarily working with sound. Her involvement with Bill Furlong’s Audio Arts Magazine from 1994 – 2007 as a sound editor sparked a lifelong interest in the idea conversation and voice as potential artefacts in themselves. As a field recordist, Irvine has a particular love of soundscapes in which distance and space become perceptible.

    Her projects range from carefully crafted individual pieces for radio and installation to conceptual platforms often inviting others to participate. Her large scale works include DIAL-A-DIVA, a global 24 hour live phonecast concert which was part of Stavanger’s European Cultural Capital programme in 2008 with over 200 international participants and an audience of more than 36,000 listeners.

    Magnetic Migration Music is series of performances, radio programmes, artist books and participative events created using found cassette tape fragments which took place over a 10 year period. Recent works Your Voice is You is also a recent work, it used voice analysis software to create a telephonic self portrait which could be accessed by calling a phone number through much of 2015.

    Zoë often works in collaboration. Earlier this year she created House Arrest: Domestic Actions together with Pernille Spence, it is an audio visual installation in which the kitchen table is used as a stage for a series of small scale, resonant domestic actions.

    From 2013 - 15 Zoë collaborated with composer Pippa Murphy as artists in residence in the Scottish Parliament. Their sound work Democratic Resonance was shown in the Parliament during the Festival of Politics, August 2015.

    2. Magz Hall - Commercial Break

    Sounds the discarded ether as sonic debris of commercial radio heard as glitches, noise and fragments, remnants of consumerism. This plunderphonic work incorporates found sound and appropriates radio adverting broadcast on FM advertising Digital radio to create an extreme sample that draws on the future of FM after it has been abandoned for digital radio.

    “Cod++(e, a).choose” (Pronounced Code/Coda) consists of 5315 miniatures for a disklavier, electronically-generated sounds, ready-made audio samples and a text-to-speach application developed especially for this piece. The musical piece is rooted in Eran Hadas’ poetry book “Code”. This book was written by a code designed to uncover all the Haiku poems, hidden in The Torah. The musical piece echoes the book, where each miniature follows the meter of Haiku poems, each having the precise same length, adding up to a 372 minutes long music box.

    5. Katherine Ka Yi Liu & Lo Mei Wa - Homeland for other Diasporas

    A collaborative work that created by Lo Mei Wa, a poet from Hong Kong and Katherine Ka Yi Liu, an Asian female artist who is currently based in Glasgow, UK. Lo and Liu both shares an on-going rebellion against traditions and stereotyping in our globalised society, while one exercises in language and the other practices in art. In a wider Western community, Asian women are still being perceived as exotic objects, fetishized and submissive where Asian men are being viewed in an exact opposite way. Homeland for Other Diasporas questions and contemplates the contradictory identities of women in our contemporary generation. As women, we are constantly searching for a balance in-between traditional and progressive.

  • Found Sound Answering Machine Episode 3 - John Morin

    Found Sound Answering Machines is a series of analog recordings gathered from answering machine tapes found at thrift stores, estate sales and junk piles. In the rush to embrace new technology, we frequently discard the old outdated models just as fast without considering what personal memories and left-behind, intimate moments they might contain.

    Radio Eyes is an active listening project by California-based sound artist John Morin that seeks to explore the potentiality of personal sonic space and offers new ways of seeing and hearing the world around us. The work reminds us that if seeing is believing, than what we hear can be unbelievable.

  • Carrie Skinner - Victor, is there anyone there?

    7th September 2016 @ 3:30 pm - 3:45 pm

    Carrie Skinner
    ‘Victor, is there anyone there?’

    The Australian radio production of ‘Frankenstein’ starring George Edwards in many of the roles was originally broadcast in thirteen parts on ‘2GB Radio’ Sydney in 1931. An unfaithful appropriation of Mary Shelley’s novel, the serial will be exhumed and rebroadcast over thirteen days. Listeners are invited to visit Creative Lab at the CCA at 3pm, 29th Aug -11th Sep (except 3rd Sep).

    Some-where/some-when an actor, their costume, a script and a prop. Someone is trying to get through to you. From the darkness of an imagined/invisible performance space, emerges the body of a voice. Hello? Who’s calling? A polymorphic interpolator talking over the radio, reaching over out of one blind space into another. Victor, is there anyone there?

    Biography:

    Carrie Skinner is a visual artist and undergraduate of the Glasgow School of Art, she completed an MLitt in Theatre Practices at Glasgow University in 2015. Her practice instinctively foregrounds thematic, structural and aesthetic devices emanating from a long standing engagement with the epic narratives of Gothic literature.


  • Gregory Whitehead - Crazy Horse One-Eight and other boneyard cantatas

    7th September 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

    CRAZY HORSE ONE-EIGHT and other boneyard cantatas

    IN THE END (2012)
    BRAVO ECHO (2013)
    INDIA ALPHA MIKE (2013)
    CRAZY HORSE ONE-EIGHT (2014)
    in memory of those killed, based on the transcript of the “collateral murder” video
    AS WE KNOW (2014)
    based on a remark by Donald Rumsfeld

    The boneyard cantatas emerge from my understanding of radio as a space of decay, acoustic relics and fossils, some of them my own, ossified fragments from discarded voice experiments. In the digital world, mathematics provides a seductive cover for the reality of a more murky electromagnetic miasma, just beneath the surface. Radio makes public the boneyard of our own human consciousness, and I am fascinated how electrical impulses jump the gap between the living and the dead, whether inside our heads and out into the airwaves. Radio often serves as a weapon, and as an instrument of command and control; yet radio also carries the utopian aspiration for community, the breath of ecstatic connection. The same finger that tickles the ribs can pull the trigger -- or drop the needle. Radio and the phonograph have a deep connection, both historically and culturally, and I am fascinated by the the strange jumpy pulses between those liberating needles and the carved grooves that create a spiral of release. Finally, there is the entanglement between radio and codes or ciphers intended to save, seek or destroy. Yet the nature of intelligence is not exempt from the laws of entropy, and even the most immaculate encryptions eventually dissolve into the ultimate unknown unknown.

    GREGORY WHITEHEAD has created more than one hundred radio plays, essays and acoustic adventures for the BBC, Radio France, Australia’s ABC, NPR and other broadcasters. Often interweaving documentary and fictive materials into playfully unresolved narratives, Whitehead’s aesthetic is distinguished by a deep philosophical commitment to radio as a medium for poetic navigation and free association. In his voice and text-sound works, he has often explored the tension between a continuous pulse and the eruption of sudden discontinuities, as well as linguistic disintegration and decay. As a vocalist, he has performed as both soloist and chorister in a wide variety of ensembles since his days as a boy soprano.


  • The Yellow Book Episode 3 - Rachel Cattle

    7th September 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 5:30 pm

    Inspired by the radical 1890s publication The Yellow Book ,this three-part radio series imagines the colour yellow as a subversive baton passed through time.

    Each half hour programme constructs a specific but different soundscape, taking cues from stream-of-consciousness writing, repetition and multiple voices as explored in The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1892), Novel on Yellow Paper by Stevie Smith (1936), and The Golden Notebook by Doris Lessing (1962).
    Originally broadcast on Resonance fm, July 2015

    3.The Golden Notebook
    Readings from a collection of newspaper cuttings which describe the life and work of female artists, writers and musicians, reference the content of Lessing’s novel and in particular one chapter which consists entirely of newspaper headlines and articles.

    Biography

    Currently a researcher at Kingson's Contemporary Fine Art Research Centre, Rachel Cattle’s practice explores oblique and sideways strategies linked to counter cultural and intuitive approaches. Discoveries brought about by becoming a stylus and the reinvestigation of experimental and overlooked work by artists and writers (often women) are cut-up and re-examined both digitally and live as performances and works utilizing text, drawing, print, object, voice, and video.

    Recent exhibitions and performances include Graphics Interchange Format, Focalpoint, The Yellow Book, Resonance fm, Project, Maureen Paley, Artist Self Publishers Fair, ICA, Gaming Gaming, New Shelter Plan, Copenhagen, Black Hole Hums B-Flat, Barbican.
