  • Parazit Radio Ep 2 Parasito

    1 September 2023  1:30 am - 2:00 am

    Radio Parazit–in English, “Parasite Radio”–contains and broadcasts my explorations around ‘Diasporic Imaginaries.’ Through a series of experimental radio broadcasts, I think and share out loud about experiences, thoughts, and hopes with material derived from personal stories rendered in artistic and acoustic explorations. My voice, however, is not singular. Instead, I suggest a singular perspective of a constellation of voices I have encountered over the years. These voices have shaped my own and have shortened the distance between the subjects and places that build my own diasporic experience in this world.

    A series of 4 episodes connecting to ideas around Diaspora, the Indigenous, the Planet, and Symbiosis.

  • Sam Bland - 66 Montclaire

    1 September 2023  3:30 am - 4:00 am

    Pieces in order of play:

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

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

    Sam Bland is a sonic artist, composer and workshop leader, interested in the potential of sound art to investigate social history. He is a recent post-graduate from the University of Birmingham, where he completed an MA in Electroacoustic Composition. His work often combines interviews, field and archive recordings and electronics, to produce dense and politically engaged soundscapes. His recent project, 66 Montclaire, was selected for the Daegu International Computer Music Festival 2022. Sam has also received commissions from Croydon Council, the Croydon Art Store and We're All Bats Listening Arts Channel, to run community based sound projects.
  • NOMADIC COSMOLOGIES AND FUGITIVE POWER: Red Forest Radiogram #8: Poetics of Liberation.

    1 September 2023  4:00 am - 6:00 am

     A call for nourishing pluralistic ways of being.
    With Sezgin Boynik, Alberto Torres, Giovanna Esposito Yussif and Sónia Vaz Borges, Sonic Intervention with DJ Zhao
    This final sonic and experiential conversation navigates the myriad topics raised over the course of Nomadic Cosmologies and Fugitive Power, weaving climate struggles with environmental justice and transformative futures. This closing is also an opening and an invitation to engage with the socio-ecological dimension of energy and people’s resistance against the epistemic injustice that is present in extractivism, datafication and a narrative that claims it cannot be otherwise. It is also a call to celebrate and defend the many forms of life that need space to flourish on their own terms. To mobilize with the overcrossing rebellious rhythms and the ancestrality of resistance.

    Sezgin Boynik, lives and works in Helsinki, having completed his PhD on the Cultural Politics of Black Wave in Yugoslavia from 1963 to 1972 at Jyväskylä University’s Social Science department.

    The Red Forest is a loose knit assemblage based on affinities and  overlapping practices that grounds together research, art, political  imagination, and social actions striving for transformative justice  and ecological reparations. In 2021 they initiated a pan-continental  research focusing on the intersections between contemporary  extractivism and datification processes. Red Forest assembles and  organizes their work with infrastructures of collective reciprocity  and interdependency as actual potentiality. Their research contributes  to the theoretical framework of Energetic Materialism to conceptualize  urgent cultural and social processes in the defense of life and the  construction of pluriversal futures in dignified flux.    
    Red Forest is mobilized by David Muñoz-Alcántara, Diana McCarty, Mijke  van der Drift and Oleksiy Radynski, after their collective practices  super collided during a 2019-2020 BAK Fellowship in Utrecht. It  unfolds as a growing constellation of artists, activists, researchers,  media producers, filmmakers, philosophers, educators and time  travelers realizing interdisciplinary projects. In 2021, their ongoing  research on Extractivism, Datafication, and Transformative Justice was  supported by the Kone Foundation in Finland led to: producing an  experimental social and durational performance series in Kyiv and  Berlin titled Sambatas Stagings, supported by Goethe-Institut  Co-Production Fund Kyiv and Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin and in  2022, they convened Red Forest Radiograms - Nomadic Cosmologies &  Fugitive Power - as the German Pavilion of the the 23rd Triennale  Milano. In 2023, their KONE supported research is on "Energy-Matters  in the context of war. Neo-extractivism, fossil fascism, and the  post-national question”. They are currently producing "On the Loss of  Energy. Radiogram from the remnants of collisions", an experimental  audio piece for the 2023 Helsinki Biennale.
  • williwaw - a mast amassing sound (version 1)

    1 September 2023  6:00 am - 6:30 am

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

    williwaw routinely explores the aesthetics of technological failure through the medium of heavily amplified ’ukulele.
  • Alice Jackson - The Bridge Between Me and Sleep

    1 September 2023  6:30 am - 7:00 am

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

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

    1 September 2023  7:00 am - 8:00 am

    I dedicate Desiderium Animae in loving memory of a dear friend and mentor Nataša Jovanović, professor of violoncello and chamber music from Belgrade, who left us too soon. 

    On October 31st, 2021 I accidentally discovered Tunnel Grič in central Zagreb. It is 1 kilometer long WWII air-raid shelter, now a pedestrian tunnel recently reopened for the public after being sealed for decades. 

    This is the integral field recording of my first encounter with the tunnel and its incredible acoustics, interacting with passers-by, examining its sonic properties, feeling its dense memory field, while walking up and down and holding the recorder in my hand. 

    The recording is later enriched by minimal ambient interventions.
    Manja Ristić is a violinist, sound artist, poet, curator and researcher active in the fields of electroacoustic and classical music, instrumental improvisation and experimental sound art. Her work blends intuitive composition and field recording practices while focusing on interdisciplinary approaches to acousmatic forms, radio art, and acoustic ecology.

    1) Aaron Haddad - Indignation Miscegenation
    A layered, unaltered, improvised single takes all voiced by Aaron Haddad and based on his original poetry. The result is a convulsing soundscape that offers different semantic and audio layers for the listener to glide, rise or fall into. Aural imperfections in the piece are valued and intentionally left as is as a response to the polish and synthetic intelligence of this era of humanity's destruction of its creative being. The piece hopelessly but sincerely seeks to destroy the intersections and politics of boxing and live freely in the space of Being.

    At time of writing Aaron Haddad carries out life in a place called Canada. He is a human with heritages derived from the movement of peoples across large bodies of Water. His piece Or Be Lost Forever was selected for broadcast in the 2022 run of Radiophrenia.

    2) Ruby Conner - New Recording 81

    Ruby Conner originally from Stockport can be found roaming the streets of Glasgow

    3) Dixie Treichel - Twist

    Twist is an experimental radio art, sound collage created with found sounds. It aired on various radio stations internationally during the Fluxus celebration of Art's Birthday 2021, and is in the Kunstradio Art's Birthday gift pool.

    Dixie Treichel is a composer, sound artist, sound designer and radio broadcaster.
    She is a sonic explorer who likes creating with any and all sounds, generating rich sonic textures that invite the listener on a journey into the unknown. Her works have been heard internationally on radio, in art galleries, sound art festivals, new music concerts, theaters and streaming festivals.

    4) Jorge Martinez Valderrama - Voces en el mar polar (Voices of the polar sea)

    An acousmatic work created with recordings of vocalizations and movements of the crabeater seal. These sound samples have been used in their original format and also edited and manipulated using some synthesis tools and digital processes with the purpose of evoking narratives and metaphorical soundscapes. This work is part of the Polar Sounds project ( which invites the composers (and audience) to re-imagine some of the little-heard sounds of the Arctic and Antarctic regions, reflecting on climate change and the evolving sounds of polar seascapes, imagining alternative perspectives on scientific data.

    As a composer and sound artist, his work reflects on various aesthetic phenomena and concepts within contemporary, electro-acoustic and acousmatic music. Some of his works have been presented in forums, festivals and digital programs in countries such as México, US, Canada, Colombia, Perú, Bolivia, Portugal, UK, Austria and Japan, among others. His work is based on field recording and is developed under the concepts of perception, alteration, poetics and pareidolia. His artistic interest focuses on listening and reflecting on the implications of sound in different contexts and ecosystems, collective creation and sound-environmental activism.           IG: @jorche_mx

    5) Ruaridh Law - Three Tells: Circle Square Cross Star Wavy Lines

    6) Serge Bulat - Normality

    "Normality" dares to question our definition of normality.  Delivered by means of interpretive sound design, visuals, and spoken word, its' goal is to create space for the rise of the new formula. Following the Rorschach test principle, it invites the audience's interpretation. What is your definition of normality? Is your formula influenced by your recent experience of the environment?

    "I strongly disagree with the definition of "normal" and hope my project will broaden the understanding of individuality, identity; embracing differences, and treating them as advantages and not faults" - Serge Bulat. 

    7) Magda Lampropoulou - Floating Stars Snevaeh YretaW (Watery Heavens)

    “Floating Stars_Snevaeh YretaW” (Watery Heavens) invites the listeners to an inner auditory journey wandering in a sea of floating stars diving into her sound.                                                    

    8) Mary Hooper -  Pond Goddess and Dragons

    The legendary and wonderful ‘Pete the Pond’ at Hampden Park Pond sharing his knowledge about the wonderful biodiversity and history of ponds and waterways. He talks of his passion for the environment through the generation and restoration of ponds and the flora and fauna that colonise a healthy pond and water way and how important that is for us all.
    The soundscape layered into the piece is recorded in and around the pond, and you will also hear Pete's parrot contributing to the commentary. The parrot accompanies him on all of his field trips.

    9) Dominik Irtenkauf and Smaely P - Your and My Forest

    Your forest and mine is haunted by two people: Ursula and Ernst. Ernst remembers Ernst Jünger, a hundred-year-old forest walker who simply gets lost in the forest and the many echoes it throws back. Then Ursula appears, remembering Ursula K. Le Guin, who excelled with ethnologically dense science fiction. Ursula retreats into the forest to protect it. In doing so, she finds rare peace of mind. ‘Your and My Forest’ brings together two people who might never have met and invites you on an acoustic journey, a first step towards a common forest that we can share by listening closely.

    English language version of original piece: Dein und Mein Wald (German). Voice, composition, sound design and production, translation and adaptation by Smaely P (aka Ypsmael), based on a text by Dominik Irtenkauf (whose voice appears towards the end).

    Dominik Irtenkauf is a Berlin-based freelance writer and journalist, he writes for TELEPOLIS and DAS SCIENCE FICTION JAHR, amongst others. He met SmaelyP at the symposium "Dual Sessions #1" in Sankt Georgen (Black Forest) on the subject of "Dual turntables and digitalisation". He works as an editor for genre, especially science fiction, at an online multimedia magazine. (currently under construction)

    Smaely P (aka Ypsmael) is an alias of experimental / non-music audio works and live electronics performances by Black Forest-bred improviser and sound collagist NM. Recent solo and collaborative releases are available on the Chocolate Monk label (Brighton) and Eh? Cassettes (San Francisco).

    10) Alex McGlynn - The Rapture 3.13pm, 1st of May, 2023

    I am an artist based in London, working in the context of narrative representation, gathering stories and generating output in response to discoveries.  During Covid I photographed the dying plants abandoned in offices and shop windows.  After Covid, some street preachers expressed their causation of it, others stayed within the more familiar territories of the general public as ‘sinners in hell’ if they didn’t shape up.
  • Louise Romain - Immersive sound journey through Brasil

    1 September 2023  9:00 am - 9:30 am

    In autumn 2022, I travelled to Brazil at the time of the national elections. I went with the intention to record sounds and stories of resistance and resilience, in times of collapse and crisis. This sound journey is a way of bringing people on the road with me. As your guide, I will take you through some of the country's most iconic landscapes, from the Coast of Bahia to the heart of the Amazon, sharing songs and prayers from the Pataxó people, bringing you the entrancing chant of the Yoruba ocean goddess Yemanja, and even get you involved into Brasilian politics.


    Louise trained as an anthropologist and works as a campaigner for climate justice and Indigenous rights. In 2022, she travelled through Canada and Brasil to connect with lands, waterways and peoples impacted by the fossil fuels, logging and mining industries. She gathered authentic stories, sounds from nature and atmospheric recordings and is now exploring the production of immersive soundscapes and experimental storytelling through her podcast show ‘Circle of Voices’. Recently, Louise also co-founded ‘Translating Terra’ with Jose Lobo, which offers translation services to amplify voices from the Global South who are actively protecting biodiversity, dismantling petro-capitalism and resisting extractivism and ecocide.

  • John Hall - Follies Of 1931

    1 September 2023  9:30 am - 10:00 am

    Evidence from the North West Daily Mail of 1931 suggests that the psychic imbalance visited upon the world during that year may have reached critical mass during April the 22nd and 23rd.

    Comprising  national and international reports of crime and tragedy, and family histories of violent fishing disputes in Askam In Furness over both days, Follies Of 1931 summons the era's seedy demagogues, gangsters  and moral exemplars alongside its desperate unknowns. The surrounding murk is brightened by the popular music of the day.
    Devised by John Hall, featuring the voices of John Murphy, Kevin Alexander, Oswald Mosley and Mahatma Ghandi.

    John Hall is based in South Cumbria, He explores archives, rotting plastic bags in charity shops and all things inbetween  to make  audio, video,music and print about ritual, tradition and communal memory.  He is artist / director of Artspace, and produces  Flypaper, a zine on vernacular creativity.

  • Antje Vowinkel - Second floor

    1 September 2023  10:45 am - 11:00 am

    Most of the recordings were taken from the second floor of a historic windmill in East Westphalia. Stones, levers, ropes and chains were set in motion for me by a volunteer caretaker. The mill sounds are combined with other noise recordings as well as few sounds of the soprano saxophone (vocal fry sounds recorded through the corpus, multi-phonics), played by myself. The title refers to the second floor of the mill, but also to the second flour or the floor of the second.

    Antje Vowinckel is a Berlin based composer, radio artist and music performer. She works for a variety of public radio stations and venues. Her focus is on the musicality of spoken word and speech improvisation.  In recent years she developed her own methods like automatic speaking and dialect karaoke for vocal performers. She also creates installations and performances in public space, i.e., a quartet for car drivers and vibrating speakers. Her works have received several awards, i.e., Prix Europa, Karl-Sczuka-Förderpreis, honorary mentions of Prix Ars Electronica/Linz and Phonurgia Nova/Paris.

  • Edwina Stevens & Carly Fischer - Velodrome

    1 September 2023  11:00 am - 11:30 am

    Velodrome is a collaborative soundscape by Edwina Stevens and Carly Fischer that oscillates around the industrial peripheries of their local area of Coburg, Melbourne, reflecting on how these in-between zones and their accumulations of forgotten fragments, traces and tones reveal hidden histories and generate improvisational dialogues with local places. Drawing on field recordings that wander around factories, former quarries and scrap yards, as well as synthesised drones played through discarded infrastructure, the soundscape has been composed through a randomised playback process, generating incidental overlaps and trajectories that open up alternate dialogues with the place.

    Edwina Stevens (Otepoti/Dunedin, Naarm/Melbourne) is an audiovisual artist working across composition, installation and live performance, exploring processes of engaging with places that are improvisational, tangential and incidental, through synthesised sound, field recordings, found acoustic elements and obsolete media. Carly Fischer (Naarm/Melbourne) is a sculptural and audio artist who engages with the smaller details, hidden histories and peripheral dialogues of places, through assemblages of objects, sounds and materialities. Carly and Edwina began collaborating in 2018 to develop sculptural and audiovisual projects that generate improvisational dialogues with local places, incorporating collected and reconstructed fragments, field recordings, archives and synthesised sound.

  • Robert Machiri – “Going round and coming again”

    1 September 2023  12:00 pm - 12:30 pm

    This piece is composed of free improvised music and material from a performance recorded in Recklinghausen, a small town in Germany. As part of an experiential itinerant intervention between the town and Berlin, I attempt to interpret the resonance felt through the town’s labour history as an ex-mining-industrial location. To foreground a dystopian image. The failure for truth to hold capacity when it’s displayed within a cacophonic membrane. When landscape turns into a site for resistance. When time and temporality offer fractality as hope.  This composition assembles elements from a personal music collection; biographically compiled with Zimbabwean liberation songs, African music ethnologically extracted and personal compositions of electronic music. I punctuate this cacophonic mix with other found archival materials. A timeless piece of James Baldwin in conversation with Giovanni that foregrounds ideas on the black family and its losses to historical catastrophes such as industrialisation and slavery. A documentary piece on Henry Ford and his close ally Frederick Taylor- except on scientific management and founder of organisational studies- which zooms in on labour exploitation, its benefits to capitalism and the global geopolitical dynamics involved.

    Robert ‘Chi’ Machiri born in 1978, in Zimbabwe is an artist who works primarily through sound mediation. Machiri’s work exists at the juncture of two streams of practice; his intuition and a post-disciplinary production of works that draw on discourses that are presented through embodied critique, learning and unlearning, interweaving sound, music and images. His most notable project PUNGWE is a mutable project that circles pan African soundings with related contemporary arts discourses and spaces.
  • Nicky Stott and Nat Grant with Luc Yong - Terrania

    1 September 2023  12:30 pm - 1:00 pm

    Terrania is a gothic-eco-drama podcast exploring gender-queer and disability in the face of climate catastrophe. This project draws on contemporary environmental realities to explore how (dis)abled, genderqueer bodies might be reimagined in dystopian andutopian futurity narratives. The podcast consists of a series of micro-episodes with a specifically composed music soundtrack. Listeners experience these otherwordly geographies through the perspective of dual protagonist viewpoints and a sonic environment that evokes hope in the face of impending doom. It locates (dis)abled, genderqueer bodies on the frontline of climate emergency. Terrania is produced on unceded Wurundjeri Country.

    1 - Robert Baldock - SOS (5:19)

    SOS, a new generative work by Robert Baldock (Aleatory Music Systems) explores the role of radio waves in relation to navigation, to safe passage, to the human cry for help. Building on Morse code, weather forecasts and the static of long wave radio and satellite, SOS continues Aleatory Music Systems ongoing investigation into the boundaries of order and chaos in systems music and electronic music, and the sonic collisions that mark the border of what will be heard and saved, and what may be lost.

    Robert Baldock is a Scottish-based composer who has been making and performing experimental music under the name Aleatory Music Systems (AMS) since 2002. In 2017 he survived a serious ischemic stroke and now lives with a suite of acute communication impairments. Expressing himself through the act of composing has never been more crucial for him. A recent recipient of the Francis Chagrin Award, Robert is returning to music with mentoring from composer Michael Begg. His work has been performed previously at ‘Seeing Sound’ Bath Spa University, ‘Generation’, National Galleries of Scotland, Edinburgh Art Festival and ‘Neon Digital’ Dundee Contemporary Art.

    4 - Kim Buikema    Lag-4-E    

    Lag - 4 - E is an experimental poem that combines methods of permutation, 12-tone music composition, and musical canon to experiment with musicalizing spoken words. The phrase “the catch is the lag between two kinds of knowledge,” (penned by Adalaide Morris) refers to poet and writer Gertrude Stein, who experimented with permutations of words and syllables to make new meaning. It also describes the place between instinctual, embodied knowing and cognitive, learned thinking. For me, the catch is also a bridge that reflects how humans experience music as performers and listeners – in ways that are both visceral and cognitive.

    Kim Buikema is a Midwest-born, Brooklyn-based audio producer, media maker, and screenwriter.

    5 - Graham Harris - Two Passages

    This work describes in sound two voyages (or 'passages'). It is notable that some of the samples used are from my own conventional acoustic ensemble piece for 8 instruments called 'Ritual Ballet' (2017). These samples are particularly used in the first 'passage'. I was fascinated how the samples, when manipulated electronically, transform into something totally different in concept and provide the material for a completely different work, yet still retain some aspects of the original vibe of the source work. The opening of the electronic work here submitted reminds the composer of a steam train setting off, but on an unpredictable dark journey. The two passages are separated by a short interlude.

    Graham Harris is based in London UK and has studied composition at Goldsmiths, Royal Holloway and Surrey University. He achieved a masters degree in composition (MMus Composition with distinction) in 2020. He was awarded Soundhub associate composer of the London Symphony Orchestra in 2017, and has received 4 awards for composition between 2021-22 in Italy, Vienna, Serbia, UK.

    6 - Ariel Mioduser - Selfie

    This piece evolves around an endless loop of the words “Ego” and “Click” as a reflection on the Selfie culture and the extension of the desire to propagate and publish the self, which, in the end, is just a repetitive image of the external.

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

    7 - Emma Bowen - Postcard

    This is a sonic postcard from Edinburgh. It explores sound from different positions in and around the city centre.  The composition combines field recordings of airborne sounds from walks, with electromagnetic and local transport recordings. Through a deeper listening practise, the city sounds begin to form rhythms and loops.

    8 - Alistair Zaldua & Lauren Redhead - experimentalstudio

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

    Alistair Zaldua is a composer, improviser and violinist based in Manchester. In addition to his work as a solo improviser, he performs in a duet for organ and live electronics with Lauren Redhead.   Lauren Redhead is a composer of experimental music whose work is published by Material Press (Berlin) and by Firehead Organ Works (UK). Her music is released on the pan y rosas discos and sfz music labels. She is also a performer of music for organ and electronics, often working in a duet with Alistair Zaldua.

    10 - Dante Tanzi - Pari    

    Pari is inspired by ritual-type ceremonies and, more generally, by those practices which, by modulating the quality of listening, aim to draw on particular dimensions of experience. Pari has a linear-cyclic trend that develops over six tracks and is based on the repetition of an ordered sequence of 13 female voice samples, immersed in electronic sounds. The samples include words of the Italian language and meaningless vocal expressions, of an emotional type: Prati, Con, Gheu, Pari, Oss, Alti, Se, Sol, Boi, Mmhs, Ella, Za, Onde. The words and vocal expressions are underlined and accompanied by the melodies of a synthetic wind instrument.

    Dante Tanzi is a composer and performer of acousmatic music.
  • Pablo Sanz - Lanzarote

    1 September 2023  2:00 pm - 2:20 pm

    LANZAROTE (22:22)

    This work centers on Timanfaya, a territory molded by its volcanic eruptions over six years in 1730-36, and again in 1824. The composition listens with other animal species that dwell around the rugged coast, endeavoring into their intimate “lifeworlds.” It also traverses the aural expressions of multiple materialities, attending to crackling lava rocks, energy-making devices and ground vibrations in a zone of shallow geothermal anomalies, and to the endless flux of “intra-actions” among wind, water, and earth.

    CANARIAS SOUNDWALK explores the sonic ecologies of the Canary Islands archipelago, presenting seven compositions for headphone listening created with environmental sound materials from each of the seven main islands: El Hierro, La Gomera, La Palma, Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura, and Lanzarote.

    The project investigates the vitality of more-than-human entities and realities, aiming to promote less anthropocentric ways of being and thinking. Through different listening strategies and audio technologies, the work concentrates on what usually remains hidden or unnoticed, on the limits and thresholds of perception and attention. The project focuses on the voices and audible presence of animal and plant species, air, soil, water, weather, and landscape formations. Furthermore, it acknowledges the affective power of sounds themselves. This project embraces listening as a creative act, a form of attention, and a tool to investigate the world. It attempts to cultivate intimate sensory encounters favouring affectivity over signification and representation.

    The project was originally commissioned by the Cultural Office of the Embassy of Spain in the US as a permanent public invisible artwork available at multiple locations in Washington, DC. Additional support from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland (ACNI), the Swedish Arts Grants Committee (Konstnärsnämnden) and the Visby International Centre for Composers (VICC). Fieldwork and production assistance: Palma E. Christian Martínez. Special thanks to Garajonay National Park, Teide National Park, and Timanfaya National Park.
  • Omer Eilam - A Day at Hambacher Forst

    1 September 2023  2:20 pm - 3:00 pm

    A couple of years ago I spent a day at the Hambach Forest in West Germany together with a group of activists who were occupying the forest and trying to save it from destruction for the sake of coal mining. The piece is a musical-storytelling journey combining spoken word with synthesised sounds and samples wherein I tried to capture those 24 hours and put them in a broader context of the environmental movement and of human society. The work is dedicated to all activists, environmentalists and spiritual warriors who devote their lives to protecting the Hambach Forest. Originally from Tel Aviv I began my academic studies with a Bachelor degree in Neuroscience and later continued to a PhD in Computational Biology and research of the Human Microbiome. In 2014 I moved to The Netherlands to study electronic music in The Institute of Sonology. Focusing on the music of Karlheinz Stockhausen I acquired my Master's degree and later trained as a sound projectionist and synthesizer creator for the Aus LICHT production in Holland Festival 2019. Since 2021 I live in Falkensee (Germany) and continue to explore the many facets of the human condition through music, activism, Yoga and Anthroposophy.

  • Trouble Tracer - Autofahrt (radio version)

    1 September 2023  3:30 pm - 3:45 pm

    Facing ignition issues? Looking to identify the symptoms to understand where the problem lies? Our handy Trouble Tracer guide offers clear audio examples that will help you diagnose the problem. Whether it be Corona Discharge Stains, Cold/Carbon Fouling, Pad Contamination, Flash Over, Ash Deposits or Detonation we’re here to help!

    At Trouble Tracer® we know one thing: quality is in the details. And what's true for technological developments is true for adequately identifying issues and matching them with the appropriate solution. At Trouble Tracer® we also believe that accuracy is best attained by working together. That's why we openly share solutions and lay out in a to-the-point and concise manner a reliable way to diagnose contamination, wear, damage and other potential issues, and how to best return to the ideal standards of performance and efficiency we work with dedication to maintain. The Trouble Tracer® guide doesn't always give you enough information for you to know exactly what's wrong, but it does mean that you can eliminate everything from the input to the point where the signal changes. It's important to understand that when fault finding, any anomalous voltage is a symptom of the fault, and is not the fault itself.  

    With its unique patented technology, Trouble Tracer® produces audio and visual signals that technicians easily catch when they tap the target. But nevertheless it does not require bending, cutting, freezing or any other actions that can damage cables.

    Autofahrt is ideal for individuals that have difficulty in differentiating between static and leak noise on an electronic listening stick!

  • Isaac Heard - Ultra Heart

    1 September 2023  3:45 pm - 4:00 pm

    This piece was inspired by the idea of different life forms experiencing life at different speeds based upon their heartbeats. So a mouse may experience time very quickly with a fast heartbeat and live only two years while a blue whale may live 90 years and experience time very slowly. The sounds in the piece each respond to a unique animals heartbeat. Bio: Isaac Heard (b.1995, Croydon) lives and works in Glasgow. Heard is a visual artist primarily working with video and animation to create fictional narratives exploring our relationship to environment and memory. Heard graduated with 1st class honours from his BA studies of Fine Art at Lancaster University (2019), having spent a year studying abroad at the University of Colorado, Boulder campus (2018). Heard graduated from his masters in Fine Art Practise at the Glasgow School of Art with Distinction.

  • Jasmina Al-Qaisi - To enter the ____’s mouth

    1 September 2023  6:00 pm - 6:30 pm

    “To enter the ____’s mouth” might feel like sitting on a flower and looking for trouble.
    While fighting chronic pain, Gura is building up her character across dimensions. Gura seeks origins of inherited fears and pains mistaking entrances for exits, caves for cavities, venturing confidently in and out of mouths from idiomatic sentences and more. All of these strategies seems necessary for Gura to ride with Hypochondria on an anecdotal journey towards the inside of an MRI.


    Jasmina Al-Qaisi is a poet who writes for voice and paper, articulates and performs language with sound, food or care practices towards uncontainable forms of literature.
    When writing with sound, Jasmina shape-shifts in inexistant institutional forms, invents jobs, engages in human and more than human relations and broadcasts temporarily or mobile on free and public radios.

    Alexandra Spence Sound diary: Sept-Nov 2022

    Whilst travelling and touring across Europe in Sept-Nov 2022, instead of field recording - I made short descriptive notes on environmental sounds that piqued my interest. I had been feeling disillusioned with field recording and keeping these notes allowed me to examine what it was I enjoyed in each sound I encountered. For this piece I have used my text descriptions as a kind of score for miniatures, attempting to reimagine and recreate these sounds using various, unrelated sources; allowing these descriptions to re-compose musical memory.

    +Truck reversing out of town square layered deep resonant drone, like music, Kristiansand
    +Nescafe in hotel room bubbly mid pitch rising
    +Bathroom door in teateret squeaky staccato texture, Kristiansand
    +Saxophone noise show of shower handle in Brunswick hotel, Glasgow
    +Gentle squeal of gate at Hanley court, London
    +Man in front of me on train Cologne to Berlin, snapping a piece of the window blind gently creating an elastic band resonance snap sound, blended really well with the Jenny Hval album I was simultaneously listening to
    +Cheery Berlin tram-stop jingle
    +Footsteps on cobbled stairs in graffiti alley way, near Intendente, Lisbon
    +Internal music on train to Paris
    +Sirens across Europe, bouncing, encircling, spinning off buildings around the city (all the EU sirens sound the same)
    +2x Cherry pickers in the Tate turbine hall installing Cecilia Vicuña, glissandi drones as they move. Striking, shifting resonant harmonies
    +Squeaky swing - metal harmonics in a park on Garibaldi Palestrina, Milan
    +Listening to Kendrick - the Heart Part 5 at take-off, voice awash with loud engine sound
    +Trolley in Bratislava old town bumping on rails and echoing off buildings - deep club bass tones
    +Man rubbing a twig against the granite footpath at the Slavin memorial, Bratislava
    +Voices of Italian tourists bouncing off Soviet memorial staircase, Bratislava
    +Someone sneezing in a quiet section of a violin and double bass improv set in Stockholm
    +Rhythm of water dripping off boat into Stockholm harbour
    +Squeaky mooring of boat and ramp, Stockholm harbour
    +Rain falling on Filmhuset, Stockholm

    1) Anna-Maria Rammou - Fallacy: Our mind is a cracked mould shaping reality 

    In this track I express feelings of indignation, sadness and fear. Showing how it feels to return home, after 10 years of absence, in a city where economic, social and environmental degradation are so obvious and yet only few seem to notice and care.

    2) Gardika Gigih ft Javanese Gibbons, Tanijiwo, Swara Owa - Mimpi Owa

    This work is my collaboration with the Javanese Gibbons sound in the Petungkriyono Forest, Central Java, Indonesia as a reflection on the relationship between nature and human being in current climate crisis. In August last year, I and friends from Tanijiwo and Musik Sekitar visited the SwaraOwa community in Petungkriyono forest. We were lucky to meet a group of Javanese gibbons calling to each others. I recorded this magical sounds. Later, I composed this music, elaborated the recording of Javanese gibbons, eagles, cicadas and other forest sounds with Sundanese zhiter and basing pacing, a traditional reed instrument from Sulawesi.

    Gardika Gigih is an Indonesian composer, pianist and soundscape researcher.

    8) Cristina Marras - Les Fleurs

    This piece by Cristina Marras (sound design and production) and Elodie Silberstein (voice) is a delicate and nostalgic exploration of the enchanting world of picture books. Drawing inspiration from the timeless tale of Little Ida's Flowers, by which both artists were captivated during their childhoods, the piece weaves together soundscapes and sonic textures to evoke the magical atmosphere of a childhood classic. Throughout the piece, listeners are swept up in a rich tapestry of emotions blended together to create an ethereal soundscape that feels both alluring and uncanny.  As two individuals whose paths crossed in Melbourne, Cristina and Elodie grew up in different places and times – Cameroon, France, and Italy. They set out to create an immersive audio experience to capture the sense of bewilderment that occurs when you seem to remember that elusive – and always fleeting – memory from your childhood.  Their work, much like the all-encompassing otherness that permeates the psyche of every traveller, embodies the blending of people, places, and cultures.

    1st épisode of the remote radiopera, for live, streamed and recorded  sounds.

    With Jérôme Joy, Kaffe Matthews, Gregory Whitehead, Björn Eriksson,  Caroline Bouissou and DinahBird  

    Based on a mix of field recordings, spoken performances &  electroacoustic improvisation in a networked playing configuration,  SOBRALASOLAS! does not have preestablished scenario or story (neither a  documentary nor a radio testimony). It is a place for glossolalies and  echolalias. SOBRALASOLAS! intercuts collected and improvised sounds with  the aim of recreating a new listening environment that is both fictional  and real, time-specific and site-specific. SOBRALASOLAS! aims to  condense and slow down the process of listening and, by extension, our  way of grasping surroundings in everyday life. It has been played at  various international festival and along many radio broadcasts since  2008.  


    Jérôme Joy. Since the beginning of the eighties and after studies at the  Music Conservatory of Bordeaux (France), his work is based on sound  intensity & loudness, duration and delay as structure and de-structuring  of music. After starting as a performer, improviser and "microphonist"  in 1982, he had developed a series of net and art works along the 1990s.  He's currently member of some noise music projects : Qwat ?, pizMO,  MXPRMNTL, Noii, etc. He was research co-director of Locus Sonus audio in  art research lab (2004-2016) and has been involved these last years in  collaborative projects (with Keith Rowe, Pauline Oliveros, Eric  Letourneau, The Residents, etc.).  

  • Yulia | Julia Carolin Kothe - Drifting through the haze, one might decide to focus on the garden’s shed

    1 September 2023  9:00 pm - 10:00 pm

    'Drifting through the haze, one might decide to focus on the garden’s shed’ is a 56-minute radiophonic piece in which the listener can encounter an assemblage of tools in a shed or an analysis of a square metre's vegetation.
    As guests in this evolving sonic landscape, we navigate through deconstructed moods, personal memories, fractured voices, and field recordings harvested during a residency stay in a private garden somewhere in West Cork. Each step unveils a new facet of the garden's array as we meander amidst the lush lawn and traverse the acoustic tunnel system.
    Yulia’s collaboration with the local gardeners – Ralph Ferguson, Johann Gardener, Chris Mac Mahan, Bruv James Slash&Burn – informs the exploration, as they dig out, cultivate and display stories ranging from the eerie to the tender, the space between presence and absence, engine sounds, poems and coffee-filled cups.


    Featuring the gardeners: Ralph Ferguson, Johann Gardener, Chris Mac Mahan, Bruv James Slash&Burn

    … with special thanks to the gardeners, the Crespo Foundation (Ulrike Crespo), Lisa Fabian for joint jam sessions, Maria Kothe, Wolfgang Kothe and to Marcus Maeder for providing soil recordings of the garden.

    © 2023, Yulia | Julia Carolin Kothe, Drifting through the haze, one might decide to focus on the garden’s shed, commissioned by radiophrenia and developed during the Glenkeen Garden Residency of the Crespo Foundation.


    Yulia | Julia Carolin Kothe (*Gießen, DE) is a visual artist based between Glasgow (UK) and Frankfurt am Main (DE). She completed two Master's degrees in sculpture with distinction at the Glasgow School of Art and Kunsthochschule Mainz, respectively. She is a studio holder at the Glasgow Sculpture Studios.

    Julia Carolin Kothe works at the intersection of sculpture, installation, sound, text and performance. In her site-specific installations and spatial interventions, she explores the connections, discrepancies and tensions of temporal and spatial settings that incorporate elements of personal and collective memory, intersectional feminist theory and archival material. She is interested in relationships that materialise in spaces and in-between bodies, for instance between the physical and the digital, the human and the non-human, and the glitches that emerge between experience, memory, reality and fiction. Yulia (the sonic and performative echo of JCK) is curious about collaborative ways of working that lead to radio episodes, sound works, texts and publications on both physical and digital platforms.

    Recent works have been shown internationally at French Street (Glasgow), Rosa Stern (Munich), Kunsthalle Mainz (Mainz), Queens Street Studios (Belfast), POKY – Institute of Contemporary Art (Mainz), Atletika Gallery (Vilnius), mañana bold (Offenbach a.M.) and Frankfurter Kunstverein (Frankfurt a.M.), among others. She has participated in a number of residencies, including the CCA: Creative Lab Residency (Centre for Contemporary Arts Glasgow), the Hospitalfield Graduate Programme (Arbroath) and is a fellow of the Stiftung Kunstfonds (working grant, Bonn).

    1) Craig Gel - Great Orme Copper Mine (Auto Filter)

    This piece uses a short field recording made at the Bronze Age copper mines at Great Orme, Llandudno, North Wales. As the original recording repeats, it is side-chained to a series of automated filters of varying sensitivity, transforming the sound of dripping from the limestone tunnels into an array of synthetic voices. On the third repetition the source audio is muted, leaving just the synthetic signals.

    Craig Gell is a sound artist, musician and composer based in Folkestone, Kent. His recent work explores the human relationship with the natural environment, using field recordings, geoscience data and creative programming to produce installations, web apps, sound maps and electroacoustic compositions. Craig also writes more conventional music and has composed for a number of short animated films. He also performs with free improvisors the Free Range Orchestra, Canterbury.

    3) allspringflowers- SPASM

    SPASM is the recording of a live performance I performed in August, 2012 at the A.I.D. x Buluntu Takeover in Yalıkavak, Bodrum. It is a fixed-media attempt to create a sonic diary of personal experience and an immersive emotional soundscape. Its raw materials are the sounds of bodies, languages, foraged field recordings, synthesis and other sonic gatherings.

    allspringflowers (she/they): radio artist and DJ residing in Istanbul. things she mostly deals with: creating eclectic & electronic sets, lingering, producing sonic stories for live performances and radios, planting and growing some seeds, sociology of music, opening up space for solidarity and cooperation in art worlds, weaving cocoons and coming out of them, staying sane in Turkey.

    4) Marko Paunović - Displacements

    3-channel installation DISPLACEMENTS is based on an accumulation of the voice fragments taken from the Radio Belgrade broadcast “Slow walking in(to)… (fragments about eccentricity in simultaneous expression and suppression of desire)”. The voice of distinguished speaker Marica Milčanović has been treated with three different envelope shapers, which are stipulating the layer’s mutual dynamics. Within that process, conceptual defragmentation of the words and breaths leaves the impression of an “open form”. The piece is produced in Electronic Studio of Radio Belgrade, on EMS Synthi 100.

    Marko Paunović is an ambient artist and sound sculptor. He works with the synthesis of electro-acoustics and ambiance while researching the sound potential of the melancholic atmosphere of isolated landscapes within frames of minimalism and drones. This work is represented in sound installations, sound performances, radiophonic pieces, sound for independent experimental movies as well as solo albums and collaborations. His poetical-theoretical texts represent the example of conceptual and linguistic (l=a=n=g=u=a=g=e) poetry, and they are simultaneously the starting points for his compositions. As they speak about the act of its own genesis through its auto-reflexivity, as much as of its composing process, with every staging of his work Marko enters the domain of “lecture performance” format.

    7) Christiaan Muller - Poetry Soundscapes: Snugness

    Poetry Soundscapes is a podcast that invites listeners to immerse themselves in a world of fieldrecordings, a little music and poetry. The podcast begins with a reflection by Charles Simic on the role of art in expressing the impossible predicament that we all find ourselves in as human beings. In the context of poetry, the predicament often refers to the limitations and challenges that the poet faces in trying to express their thoughts and emotions through language, as well as the existential struggles that are part of the human condition. The host shares a personal story of a childhood experience where he found himself in a cold, dark room counting the tolling of a church bell
    to pass the time. He argues that the cold and discomfort of the room actually added to the experience, as it allowed him to appreciate the
    warmth and comfort of his bed. The host reflects on the beauty of the world and the importance of taking the time to appreciate it. He suggests that, like the experience of being cold in a warm bed, we need contrasts in life in order to fully appreciate the moments of joy and beauty.

  • Leon Clowes - My Story with Alcohol

    1 September 2023  11:00 pm - 11:20 pm

    These works from the last twelve months are all part of my current PhD practice research at London College of Music, University of West London. Using autoethnographic techniques, I'm exploring self-compassionate creative exploration of lived trauma (kinship care family, growing up gay during the AIDS crisis, addiction/abuse).

    'Secrets keep us sick and pop music brings us closer' is an audio paper selected for Seismograf's 'Grief' edition.  (Radiophrenia broadcast 9pm 24th Aug).

    'My story with alcohol' is part of an installation at Open School East's Associate Artist exhibition. (Radiophrenia broadcast 11pm 1st September).

    'The Haunting' is a music, film and spoken word performance from Naviar Records Haiku Fest at Cafe Oto. (Radiophrenia broadcast 9:30pm 3rd September).

  • The Castle - Greetings from the kitchen

    1 September 2023  11:20 pm - 2 September 2023  12:00 am

    This is the first piece served by The Castle, whose name is both a concrete and abstract starting point for their musical research: blurring images of architectures in the middle of a haunting biotope taking over, strangely independent dishes developing a life of their own, hidden spaces and corridors, repetitive patterns versus chaotic processes, cut up voice fragments and illogical complexity. Recorded on March 25th 2023. Mixed by Andreas O. Hirsch, mastered by Thomas Rehnert.


    The Castle is a collective for electronic and electro-acoustic improvisation, recently founded by a handful of German and French artists living in rural Finistère in Brittany. With Ursula Döbereiner (no input system), Andreas O. Hirsch (electrified palm leaf & morse key), Patricia Koellges (tashigoto, electric bass & voice), Gaël Moissonnier (modular synths & various electronics) and Thomas Rehnert (doepfer modular synths & percussion).
