  • Konrad Behr & Konrad Westphal - Sleeping Refrigerators

    15 February 2022  12:00 am - 8:00 am

    In times of domestic quarantine, our refrigerators were fuller than ever. What do you think they were dreaming about? The Show was a broadcast series during the "Corona" special program SHIFT FM of the experimental radio bauhaus.fm at the Bauhaus University in Weimar. For the night broadcasts during the project week, media artist Konrad Behr invited artist friends to make audio recordings of various refrigerators at night time. At the end of the broadcast week, media artists Markus Westphal and Konrad Behr played the present collaborative sound improvisation based on the submitted recordings and other sounds.

    Participating artists:
    Anne Wahl & Marc Schmidt (Liebherr CNel 4213 Indes 21E / 001, Dresden), echofreak (Refrigerator with kitchen cuckoo clock, fan wheel wet wood preservation of the State Office for Archaeology Dresden), Konrad Behr (Freezer exquisit, Weimar), Laura-Dang (Techwood-KS9121, Weimar), Rajko Aust (unknown device, Dresden), Grit Ruhland (2 x unknown devices, Dresden & Berlin), Margarethe Maierhofer-Lischka (unknown device, Graz), Marco Schröder (unknown device, Berlin), Markus Westphal (unknown device, Weimar), Aanna Schimkat (Liebherr, Leipzig), Annalena Stabauer (unknown device, Vienna), Ina Weise (Accordeon, Weimar)

    1. Lauren Redhead & Alistair Zaldua -Machines

    The beginning of a projected album of work for this duet of spoken word and improvised e-violin, these two pieces bring together experimentally composed texts using Oulipo-derived techniques, live violin performance and sampled violin and environmental sounds. The texts could be considered critical rewritings, or translations, of existing work that address historical, political, aesthetic, and gender-based themes, and their relation to art and listening. Rather than just a backdrop, the violin improvisation ‘plays into’ the spaces offered by the spoken word, presenting its own spaces, or responding to the spoken text.

    Composers and improvisers Lauren Redhead and Alistair Zaldua frequently work together on collaborative projects and in their duet for organ and live electronics. Alistair performs with the acoustic and 5-string electric violins, along with live electronics, and is also a conductor, and a researcher with the Royal Music Association’s Music and/as Process study group. Lauren is also an organist, a musicologist who writes on the aesthetics of recent music, and a Senior Lecturer at Goldsmiths, University of London. This combination of spoken word and improvised e-violin is the beginning of a new project involving text and improvisation.
     
    2. Yati Durant – Quiet Cities 4: Quiet Cities 4: Edinburgh Leith/Water of Leith 4pm 07.05.2020 

    Quiet Cities are live improvised sound art visualised field recordings from Edinburgh Leith/Water of Leith, UK at 4pm on May 5th 2020. The field recordings have been electronically altered slightly and each of them are different. “I walked around during a lockdown afternoon in May 2020 with my stereo field microphone. The city sounded strange to me…so quiet and subdued. These are free improvisations on the impressions I had at the time…”

    3. Finlay J Hall - Chapter Eight

    Chapter Eight combines a short walk, ambient music (both improvised), speculative fiction, narrative poetry, and field recording. It functions as both documentation of a performance and a piece of music, and is altogether cohesive, I swear.

    Finlay J Hall is an artist and musician who often makes use of walking. He makes work concerning public space and collaboration, and enjoys thinking about alternate realities. He runs Wooosh Gallery, an art gallery in a car park in Dundee. He is in a band called Machine Speak, and hosts a radio show called Life Down Low. His favourite food is spaghetti. He’s currently 25 years old.

    4. Cinzia Nistico  - One Dimension and a Half Episode 8

    CinziaNistico: voice/music/script/field recording           Igor Iofe: trumpet

    In this podcast I merge both the principle of storytelling and songs, marking a counterpoint between sounds/music and the narration, a sort of unsung songs. A journalist’s semi-dada journal about an expedition aimed at reaching Earth’s fluid strata. The story alludes to the Nordic myth of Jörmungandr the World Serpent which marks Ragnarök, a serie of natural disasters leading to the submersion of the Earth in water. The first season focuses on events preceding the expedition, the second focuses on the mission itself.

    Cinzia Nistico is a composer and multimedia artist. She’s interested in the psychological impact of sound and the emotional load it carries. In her projects she explores themes of identity and reality and the disruption and distortion of both. In her music she creates structures that are static and evolving at the same time. In her electronic/electroacoustic music she uses instruments or/and voice as a source. She graduated in composition in London (Trinity College of Music) and Milan (Conservatorio di Musica). Her music is performed in Europe and worldwide. Visit cinzia-nistico for a full resume.

    5. Ali Rennie - Flood Warning

    Flood Warning is a radio collage featuring sampled radio noise arrangementstogether with excerpts from American radio weather channels and talk show broadcasts discussing political and religious issues of the current ideological setting. It is an exploration of human creeds in the context of their radio transmission at a time in history when such creeds are notably forthcoming.

    Ali Rennie is an emerging sound artist and composer from Aberdeenshire, Scotland, who has recently completed an MSc in Sound Shaping and Audiovisual Practice at the University of Glasgow. He is known as the creator of the dark ambient music project Ruptured World which has released several albums with the cinematic dark ambient record label Cryo Chamber.
    Rennie is also a writer of dark fantasy and horror fiction and has published a novel, BleakWarrior, and various short stories in a variety of anthologies and magazines (including Weird Tales magazine and the New Weird anthology edited by Ann and Jeff VanderMeer).

    6. Ilaria Boffa - Body Memory Hypothesis

    Ilaria Boffa is an Italian poet. She writes bilingual poetry and she has published three poetry collections to date. She is one of the eight authors included in the North East American Association publication ‘Writing in a Different Language’ Vol XL 2018.

    Over the last years, she has been experimenting with field recording, blending her spoken word with sound. Her sonopoems have been played at international experimental sound art festivals and radios. In 2021, two audio-video installations, produced in collaboration with international video-artists, have been exhibitedat the Mahalla Festival in Instanbul and the Nature&Culture Poetry Film Festival in Copenhagen.

    Body Memory Hypothesis
    What if the body itself, and not only the brain, was capable of storing memory? What if nostalgia, grief, the passage of others’ lives could persist inside us and manifest through us? Venezia is and has always been a melancholia resonator.
    Field recording taken at Punta dellaDogana (Venezia).
    Poem ‘Body Memory Hypothesis’
    'La nostalgia never rests, never
    complains for it never ceases.
    When we rarefy we loosen grip
    we allow others’ passage.
     
    They release new kinaesthetic
    recordings and by merging we
    discontinue our tissue
    recollections and restore
    experience. Permeable or
    semipermeable, up to us.
    It’s a remembrance crossover
    and recombination.
    Feel me spread and merge.
    Rarefy.'

    7. Eleanor Tullock - Red Sea Indeed

    Red Sea Indeed is an audio map of a story of exile – the Crossing of the Red Sea.
    The piece is part of a project in Los Angeles, California – Exodus  -   a self-guided walking tour of the events of Passover mapped onto resonating sites in a contemporary city. The starting point was the Haggadah supplication that “in each generation, each person is obligated to see himself or herself as though he or she personally came forth from Egypt.” We can, in critical times, experience and reimagine the stress of flight, of changing states, and the dubious relief of freedom.

    Designer, sound artist and Australian exile based in California and the western states of America. Production of folk instruments and the architecture of air, sound and lightness.
  • Kick Down the Barriers - Ep2: Ashok Chudasama

    15 February 2022  9:00 am - 9:40 am

    Kick Down The Barriers is about the people and stories from Blackburn Lancashire. It asks us to listen to one another, as the first step to developing deeper understandings of our cultural heritage and to find the commonalities that bind us. Rather than focussing on the mass media stereotypes that often maintain our division these podcasts hope to serve as true a reflection as possible of the lovely who live or work in Whally Range in Blackburn. The interviewees deserve all the credit for these works, because without their brave, open, thoughtful, rich, surprising, complex, nuanced, original, unique stories and voices there would be nothing here, and all the amazing things that they have to teach us about life in Blackburn, past, present and future would still be hidden from our ears, hearts and minds. We hope these works can remind us that every experience is hugely valuable in finding better ways to live, and the more that we can share our stories, the deeper the connections we can make to each other and the town in which we live.

    Paul Nataraj holds a practice led PhD in Sound Studies from the University of Sussex. The work, ‘You Sound Like a Broken Record’, was voted in the top ten experimental albums of the year by 'A Closer Listen' magazine 2018. His work explores musical materiality, memory, the personal stories attached to music, and how our relationship with listening and the listened to, changes over time. His work thinks about the rhizomatic connectivity of music and how the dialogue between times, places and spaces open fractures through which to listen differently to the everyday.

    He has exhibited internationally and had a solo show at Prism Contemporary, Blackburn. He has published articles in ‘The Routledge Companion to Sound Studies’ and ‘The Bloomsbury Handbook of Sonic Methodologies’. He is a regular contributor to the online music magazine, Inverted Audio and has written for Soundest fanzine. His sound works have been featured on BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction, Resonance Extra, Radiophrenia, Berlin Community Radio, Threads Radio, NTS, and The Wire’s Adventures in Sound and Music

    His latest album ‘Cobblestones & Kitchari’ was released in May 2020 on Fractal Meat Cuts.
  • Melodie Blaison - Sleeping Machines (Dormeureuses de la ville)

    15 February 2022  9:40 am - 10:00 am


    "We decided to write this manifesto by gathering everyone's ideas and thoughts. It was designed as a reflection of first impressions. We formed a circle, each of us taking turns speaking and offering a word or two if we wanted to. We wanted to form a collage with the things that were important to us."

    Mélodie Blaison is a French visual artist and musician, graduated in Fine Arts in 2016 after a flute course at the Nantes Conservatory. Her practice is transversal, she is interested in the narrative potential of writing, and not in particular in the hybrid spaces that fiction can create while questioning our relationship to the world. By playing on the scales of time and space, and passing in turn through installations, immersive sound pieces or modular objects, she asks herself the question of the creation of new possibilities in our contemporary societies. She is co-founder of Atelier Vé in Marseille where several exhibitions have taken place. She has performed in Cardiff, Copenhagen, at MAgasins Généraux in Pantin, as well as at Coco Velten and Kit Galerie in Marseille. She is currently part of the post diploma arts and sound creation at the Ensa of Bourges.

  • James Prevett and Annie May Demozay - Conversation Pieces 2

    15 February 2022  10:00 am - 10:30 am

    A series of five sound works interweaving interview and archive sound to explore sculpture in the home. Each episode takes interviews with people in their home about the things they keep around them. These are woven together with archive footage of Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth to explore our very human responses to matter and material.

    Conversation Pieces are made by James Prevett and Annie May Demozay for radio broadcast and form part of Prevett’s larger project Things for Homes / Homes for Things commissioned by TACO! in Thamesmead, London. 

    James Prevett makes things to gather around - objects, events, text, video that are often combined together as sculpture. He often works with other people. He is interested in sculpture as means to explore the limits of minds and bodies, both personal and communal. James lives and works in Helsinki, Finland where he is a Sculpture Lecturer at the Academy of Fine Arts of Uniarts Helsinki. 

    Annie May Demozay is an artist and writer who lives in Scotland and works in a park.

  • Xiyao Chen - synchronise your dream

    15 February 2022  10:30 am - 11:00 am

    _ Synchronise your dream is a radio piece co-written with Open AI’s text processing intelligence GPT-3, which generates natural language when triggered with input prompts and pruning techniques to steer the direction of the feedback loops. The narratives derive from an improvised dream exchange session with GPT-3. Challenging traditional forms of story telling, the piece weaves mythology and technology, straddling meanings and feelings - bodily experience without bodies. The soundscapes are produced with live coding sound generation technology, exploring the simulated multiverse of machine generated environments. A Pallid Playback Shack production. Pallid Playback Shack is an experimental platform rethinking the simulated hybrid environments where human, machine and nature coexist interdependently, where distinctions between the organism and machine, physical and virtual have become increasingly leaky. Weaving primordial thoughts, myths and rituals with the appropriation of technology - machine learning and algorithm automation, Pallid Playback Shack aims to trace the genealogy of mythical thought to reveal the possibility of myths to act as a resisting force in the neo-liberal and post-colonial world. It is the brainchild of Xi Yao Chen (@oayixnehc), an architect, artist and AI researcher based in London.
  • Yol - Everyone has gone the office cant hurt anybody now

    15 February 2022  11:00 am - 11:30 am

    I recently got access to some empty office spaces and made a series of works in them, with sounds and text from and responding to the building.

    I’ve put some of them together as a sort of radio opera, although there isn’t really a narrative, or a dramatic end or resolution. Offices just go on and on, or they stop, or everyone leaves...there is little sense to them, or this work. Just a screaming in an empty place that wouldn’t have been possible when it was full.

    Yol is a performance/visual/text artist currently based in Hull. Working with physical performance, space as instrument/collaborator, mangled language and extended vocal techniques his work appears in the form of physical performances, installations, and diy released product. Found objects/mouth noise.

    01) Asha Sheshadri - Laboratory Channel
     
    From the album 'No Longer A Soundtrack'
     
    Sheshadri’s work involves the unpredictable observation of and response to a personal and political network of relays -- archival fields coexisting in entropy -- that operate within our collective worlds and imperfect memories. Reading annotations from a book marked up by another, capturing an observational voice memo on a phone, or salvaging footage from a damaged tape are gestures that may produce source material for a fictional letter, a suggestion of an ethnography, soundtrack, or map of a speculated immigration. 

    These, in turn, may result in a composition, an object, a movement or manifesto. Her work, often taking the form of essayistic videos, recordings, readings, and performances, follows these relays towards creating environments from musical and non-musical artifacts alike -- a kind of "affective collaging” concerned with the personal deconstruction and re-assemblage of archival objects and documents.


    "No Longer a Soundtrack" was recorded and unrecorded in many iterations over a several year period in San Diego, Philadelphia and NYC."

     
    02) Christian Mirande - The Shark Presentation 

    Christian Mirande (b. 1986) is an experimental musician from Philadelphia. He has utilized magnetic tape, various audio synthesis methods, and instruments from the fretless bass to the iphone voice memo. His work is often characterized as textural or atmospheric. He has been a member of the groups Open Corner and The Flea Circus.

    03) crys cole & Oren Ambarchi - Burrata

     
    From the album 'Hotel Record' 


    Hotel Record is the second release from the duo/couple of crys cole and oren ambarchi, following on from Sonja Henies vei 31 (PLANAM 031LP, 2014). Where their debut recording presented a disquieting portrait of the erotic dimension of romantic intimacy, the follow-up continues to explore the pair’s simultaneously musical and romantic relationship in a more subtle fashion, presenting four long-form pieces that touch on the variety of forms the life of this couple takes: as a musical duo, as a pair of travelers to exotic locations, as opponents in a game of cards…

    Carving out an intimate and human sonic space across a diverse array of compositional approaches, sound sources, fidelities, and textures, Hotel Record is the latest dispatch from the continuing explorations of a unique duo. Ambarchi and cole reimagine electro-acoustic music, not simply as “abstract” sound, but as a diary, a love poem, a dream.
  • Asha Sheshadri - The Last Picture Show

    15 February 2022  12:00 pm - 12:30 pm

    The Last Picture Show is a survey of self-conscious object details lodged within the Metropolitan Museum of Art, with no expectation that they would ever be heard. The work is interspersed with dialogue from "The Last Picture Show" (1971). It was set up as an open-ended exploration, in which I documented art objects that were to be addressed, through writing and field recordings which were then cast aside. To me, this piece feels like revisiting an outdated atlas. 

    Asha Sheshadri (b. 1986) moves freely between video, writing, sound, and photography. Her forms flow together to create unpredictable observations of the overlooked, while documenting personal and political networks within our collective, imperfect memory. She currently lives and works in New York.

  • Iain Findlay-Walsh - re-embedding / nothing was the field

    15 February 2022  12:30 pm - 1:00 pm

    Soundscape music made from first-person field recordings, tracing personal listening, in-between-ness, inside/outside, lockdown as a frantic, saturated pause. deep listening is mindfulness. what do you hear? spasm and burnout. fading sound. a tone that changed your mind. bodies connecting and dissolving through the wire. Iain Findlay-Walsh's activities in sound art and writing engage with personal listening, spatial experience and virtuality, often combining first-person field recordings with found music and instrumental performance. Recent solo releases are available through Outlet Archival (2020) and Entr’acte (2019). Sound art/ composition featured at Tectonics Festival and Rewire Festival in 2021. Research on music, sound and listening is published through Organised Sound and the Journal of Sonic Studies.

    1. Joanne Matthews - Cosmological Starfish

    Cosmological Starfish is a sound piece that pays homage to Not I (1973) by Samuel Becket by tapping into subconsciouses with whispering streams of sound, played out in a ritualised loop. The work is a journey, a dialogue between a starfish, a human and a beach, expanding simultaneously in and out of time and space. It is part of an interdisciplinary, expansive research project, called Murky Horizons, based along the Edinburgh coastline.

    Joanne Matthews is an artist from Brighton, based in Edinburgh, working collaboratively across performance, audio, video, installation, photography and drawing. She conducts embodied fieldwork, rooted in place, creating gestural works of art. She’s interested in leaning into, and finding hope in, the darkness of the ecological crisis and the inseparable links between nature and culture. Her work is intimate, capturing the complexities, emotions and personal feelings she has of a place or idea and tells a ‘story’, often with humour, confusion, eeriness and sensuality. https://www.jojomatthews.art 

    2. Panayiotis Kokoras – Sense  (2013-14) for electroacoustic sounds.

    Sense was composed in 2013-14 at the CEMI Studios at the University of North Texas. The sound core of Sense is the water as a sound object but also as energy and substance that affects other sounding objects. For the audio manipulation, I mainly used procedural audio, music information retrieval tools as well as traditional audio editing techniques. Sense is a story of a man pouring liquor into a glass.

    3.  Gabriele Hasler  - Leerstand 1: Zwischenstand /Vacancy1:In Between 

    The subject of vacancies / fallow land has fascinated Gabriele Hasler for a long time. At what point does potential tip over, becomes decay? And the other way round? Rubble heaps turn out to be magnificent pointer plant biotopes, actually all they need is to be left alone… In January 2021, Gabriele Hasler was able to make sound recordings in the empty indoor swimming pool and in the St. Johannis church in Dannenberg/Elbe (near Hamburg).

    Since the early eighties Gabriele Hasler has performed with several ensembles in Europe, South Asia and North Africa. Her vocal performance can be regarded as a process of exploring the limits of the human voice. She can be heard on 25 CD/LPs and runs a record label of her own called Foolish Music. She just released her new album called „Herden und andereBüschel“/“Flocks and Other Clumps” (Laika Records). She has worked with Louis Sclavis, Günter Baby Sommer, Jaap Blonk, Lauren Newton, Lindsay Cooper, Bobo Stenson, Oskar Pastior, Han Bennink, Arkadij Schilkloper,  Gunter Hampel,  Reggie Workman, Andrew Cyrille and others.
     
    4. Clovis McEvoy - Flâneur

    Flâneur  - To walk through a city in order to experience it. Drawing from my own thoughts and impressions gained on numerous soundwalks through Auckland City, this highly narrative work follows the steps of an observer, a traveler who watches the cascade of life unfolding around him while never truly feeling a part of anything. Cultures, languages, movements and music - half-heard or half-seen - all washing over and passing by as the protagonist walks ever onward.

    Clovis McEvoy is a New Zealand born composer, sound artist, and researcher currently based in the UK. His work frequently explores subjective, first-hand experiences, and how these can be communicated to others through new technologies and sonic art. His current project is a large-scale commission from Creative New Zealand to create an interactive oral history of the country– allowing stories and music to intertwine though the medium of virtual reality.

    5. Sian Gledhill - Stay At Home

    In February and March 2020, as the numbers of Covid were rising in the UK, the government started producing official public adverts to try and generate awareness of the impending public health crisis. As the pandemic continued and the country went into lockdown, I began collecting newspapers and adverts, fascinated by the language of these official government guidelines, and how they were reflected in the news. Like all of us, I became absorbed in this new language that has been adopted to inform us about the pandemic, and also the rules and rituals that we have collectively found ourselves adhering to during the lockdowns. It was also interesting to observe that at the start of the pandemic my own child was just learning to read and, over the last year and a half, this age group have discovered the joys of reading on their own. For ‘Stay at Home’ I invited children who are just learning to read, or are in the early stages of their reading journey, to read out loud headlines relating to our shared experience of living through the Coronavirus pandemic and official government guidelines from March 2020 onwards.

    6.Elliot Yair Hernández López - Ritual
     
    Ritual is a sonic exploration that combines day-to-day sounds digitally transformed; It narrates thestory of a being trapped in an eternal dream that repeats itself infinitely, each repetition is a stage ofdreaming deeper and deeper.

    Elliot Yair Hernández López, born on June 3rd, 1999 in Mexico. He has presented his audiovisual works and electroacoustic pieces in different countries such as Mexico, Colombia, Peru, Argentina, USA, UK, Japan, Portugal, and Switzerland. Recently, he received a special mention in the Ars Electronica Forum Wallis 2021 selection with his work "Ritual". As a digital artist, he seeks to experiment with different objects and disciplines to create immersive, reflective and abstract pieces with the aim of creating sensations and emotions for the public through audiovisual elements.

    7. Harbour Me
- Fondre

    Domestic field recordings during the Spring of 2020 provide the backdrop for this piece which cuts through loneliness, isolation, and romantic/obsessive love; the projection of desires, the absence of genuine love and the melting and blurriness of individual identity. Vocalist Aude Langois adapts Sellner’s French text and through her voice masterfully cleaves sound and words together to convey a longing for devotion from someone or no one. 

    Voice - Aude Langois
 Voice, field recordings, concept and editing - Jilliene Sellner Canine intervention - Jana 

    Harbour Me is a project of solo and collaborative works conceived by sound artist Jilliene Sellner. The name Harbour Me intends to suggest a safe haven, a sheltering and a collective support system and is a nod to where she lives, by the sea.

  • MP Hopkins - Telephonic Moisture Pt. 2

    15 February 2022  2:00 pm - 2:30 pm

    Performed live to air 20 September 2021 on the Listening Space radio program, Sydney, Australia.

    Telephonic Moisture is a live radio work for voices, telephones, electromagnetic field (EMF) and feedback sounds. The work involved several performers: me in the radio studio, two people patched into the radio studio via telephones, and twelve people listening at home recording themselves. I played a pre-recorded collage of EMF and feedback sounds and read from a text. The phone callers were tuned into the broadcast and read from the same text. The people listening at home also read from the text, recording themselves and the broadcast playing in the space they were listening in. In addition to reading from the text all performers repeated what others were saying and described the sounds in the collage.

    Part 1 is a recording of the live broadcast that features me and the two people on phones. Part 2 is a collage of the recordings made by the twelve performers listening and vocalising in their homes.

    MP Hopkins is an artist working on Gadigal and Wangal land (Sydney, Australia). He makes audio, textual, radiophonic and performance works. Exploring ideas of inner speech, noise, ventriloquism, and invented language, the voice in varying states of instability and intelligibility is a key feature of his practice. Hopkins co-hosts the weekly radio program Listening Space on community radio station Eastside FM with musician Laura Altman and organises the Humming Grotto sound series with musician and sound artist Alexandra Spence.

  • Christian Mirande - Son Be Strong

    15 February 2022  3:00 pm - 3:30 pm

    "Hello, my name is Christian Mirande and you're listening to my piece made for Radiophrenia! You'll hear field recordings, tape loops, electric piano, organ, bullroarer and some digital synthesizers, all layered into a work themed very loosely on listening to radio programs. I've been a radio listener all my life; it's buoyed me, fatigued me, excited me and everywhere in between. I initially considered working with single-sideband modulation and voice for this work as the technology is at the core of radio wave transmission and reception, and its effect on sound is quite dramatic, if not a bit cliche. Ultimately, I decided on a performance, a general ribbing and sort of pastiche- a bit of a think about American radio broadcast and it's reflection back. Public radio reports, emotional overwrought essay programs, irritating commercials, religious music, interference- all without using those actual things as source material. I hope you enjoy it! Well, I forgot, there was also fretless bass."
     
    Christian Mirande (b. 1986) is an experimental musician from Philadelphia. He has utilized magnetic tape, various audio synthesis methods, and instruments from the fretless bass to the iphone voice memo. His work is often characterized as textural or atmospheric. Dealing with themes such as memory, loss, and faith, this new piece is a reaction to a lifetime spent in the car with American broadcast radio.

    He has been a member of the groups Open Corner and The Flea Circus.

  • Kunstradio Ep2 - “Performing Utopia” by alien productions

    15 February 2022  4:00 pm - 4:45 pm

    The genre of utopia is difficult. Utopias are not taken very seriously. They are considered anemic and boring, and in retrospect are most likely to be a curiosity. No one would think of setting up his life according to a literary utopia and, for example, demand the fulfillment of a solar state. It seems as if the future has lost everything worth striving for. It has become a place of vague fears. By now it is clear to everyone that the future cannot be an engineered achievement. That it is not " do-able ". That in the end no design will prevail. As soon as experts (in August 2016) introduced the Anthropocene (ancient Greek: "the humanly [made] new") as a designation for the current age of the Earth, there are already growing signs that our anthropocentric view of the world has begun to totter. On the one hand, human influence seems to have unbalanced natural processes to such an extent that their dynamics are becoming irreversible. On the other hand, scientific research and technological development are increasing evidence and indications that question a unique position of humans (for example, as the "crown of creation"), but on the contrary see them surrounded by many other - natural and artificial - intelligences. Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data and Deep Learning have become factors of our lives. They are there, whether welcome or not, acting, learning, evolving. They operate subcutaneously. We see a striking discrepancy between the direction in which people and societies are evolving, the world is changing, and the stubborn adherence to traditional, outdated models of life. What we need are better utopias. To improve them, we want to use the very technology that, depending on how you look at it, augments or threatens human intelligence: artificial intelligence. Whether we like it or not, we will (have to) communicate with it. For the radio opera, we trained artificial intelligences. Each of these agents formed on historical utopian texts across the centuries; in this learning process this material was thus continuously recombined, rewritten and improved. In the context of the "performance", human and artificial voices then discuss and interact, both interpreting the machine-generated texts. A musical-philosophical dispute about worlds of possibilities. The radio opera consists of four acts, set in the historical periods that provided the breeding ground for essential utopian thoughts and concepts: the Renaissance, Romanticism, revolutionary Russian Futurism, and the digital age. The historical materials used to train the AIs are: [Act 1] Thomas More, Utopia (1516, Engl.: 1551), [Act 2] Mary Shelley, Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus (1818), [Act 3] Velimir Khlebnikov, The Trumpet of the Martians (with Maria Siniakova, Bozhidar, Grigory Petnikov, Nikolai Aseev, 1916) and The Radio of the Future (1921), [Act 4. Act] Donna Haraway, A Cyborg Manifesto (1985), Arthur and Marilouise Kroker, Spasm: Virtual Reality, Android Music and Electric Flesh (1993), and Natasha Vita-More, Transhumanist Manifesto (1983). But not only the libretto, but also the music was composed with the help of neural networks, and the musical parameters correspond to the styles of the respective eras. And so Performing Utopia is indeed a performance, as described in linguistics: Utterances that, by the fact of being uttered, change states in the social world. Here as cooperation between human and artificial intelligences. In the sense of a posthumanistic ecology, namely the realization that only intelligent networks remain capable of survival - regardless of whether humans are involved in them or not.

  • Mobile Radio residency - Glasgow Calling Scale live with Elina Bry

    15 February 2022  5:00 pm - 5:30 pm

    In collaboration with Radiophrenia and the Goethe Institut Glasgow ‘Mobile Radiophrenia’ is a cultural exchange and radio residency that will result in five new live broadcast works. The artist duo Mobile Radio (Sarah Washington & Knut Aufermann) from Ürzig in Germany have been invited over to work with five Glasgow based artists or artist duos on an intensive daily collaboration that culminates in a live radio performance at 5pm each day. The performances have been devised within the following framework:

    ‘Glasgow Calling Scale: a verbal response series in five parts’
    There are five grades starting with the most musical:

    Mon 14th Feb - No verbal response
    Eothen Stearn, Lady Neptune, Knut Aufermann, Sarah Washington.

    Tues 15th Feb - Incomprehensible sounds
    Elina Bry, Knut Aufermann, Sarah Washington.

    Weds 16th Feb - Inappropriate words
    Cindy Islam, Knut Aufermann, Sarah Washington.

    Thurs 17th Feb - Confused
    Nichola Scrutton, Knut Aufermann, Sarah Washington.

    Fri 18th Feb - Oriented
    Rebecca Wilcox, Hannah Ellul, Knut Aufermann, Sarah Washington.

    Sarah Washington and Knut Aufermann began Mobile Radio in 2005. It was established as a travelling project to build upon their work across Europe in the fields of radio and sound art which had arisen during the three years that they helped to establish the London art radio station Resonance 104.4FM. Their work takes them to media and art festivals, conferences, universities and one-off events where they run short-lived radio stations, create special live broadcasts or edited pieces, give workshops or talks, design radio installations and play concerts. Their interest in radio technology is complemented by their live electronic improvised music project Tonic Train (radio terminology for ‘interrupted continuous wave’) which features radio feedback and mini transmitters built into circuit-bent instruments.

    They have been invited as guest ‘radio experts’ by projects tapping into a renewed interest in experimental radio and ‘radio art’. Now based in Germany, they continue the work of Mobile Radio with those who want to develop concepts through the medium of radio. They have acted as organisers, curators and artistic directors for high profile radio projects at the 30th São Paulo Biennial, documenta 14 and Radio Revolten, the largest festival of radio art in the world. Mobile Radio remains a personal artistic journey to create radio work which arises from their encounters and surroundings. Their mission remains to seek out new forms of radio by taking radio production out of the studio environment.

    They are currently working on Radio Art Zone, a premier showcase of radio art as part of the European Capital of Culture Esch2022.

    01) crys cole & Oren Ambarchi - Pad Phet Gob (15:28)



    01) crys cole & Oren Ambarchi - Pad Phet Gob
     
    From the album 'Hotel Record'
     
    Hotel Record is the second release from the duo/couple of crys cole and oren ambarchi, following on from Sonja Henies vei 31 (PLANAM 031LP, 2014). Where their debut recording presented a disquieting portrait of the erotic dimension of romantic intimacy, the follow-up continues to explore the pair’s simultaneously musical and romantic relationship in a more subtle fashion, presenting four long-form pieces that touch on the variety of forms the life of this couple takes: as a musical duo, as a pair of travelers to exotic locations, as opponents in a game of cards…

    Carving out an intimate and human sonic space across a diverse array of compositional approaches, sound sources, fidelities, and textures, Hotel Record is the latest dispatch from the continuing explorations of a unique duo. Ambarchi and cole reimagine electro-acoustic music, not simply as “abstract” sound, but as a diary, a love poem, a dream.
       
  • Khadea Kuchenmeister - Deep Lake Murmurs

    15 February 2022  6:00 pm - 6:45 pm

    Deep Lake Murmurs is a mediative speculative fiction on diaspora, water and imagined borders. Accompanied by recordings of various rivers, a soft gliding voice ascends and descends in prayer, creating a psychic vessel for spirits travelling off an imprisoning island. Taking inspiration from the African water deity Mami Wata, it brings together a resistance to post-colonial borders with layers of ancient water folklore. Vocals by Fiyin Fakunle. Khadea Kuchenmeister is a ceramicist and artist, exploring histories and storytelling through the use of creative workshops as a way to encourage space for self-exploration centred on lived experience. They are interested in critical autoethnography as a method that disrupts ideas on the subject/object dualism and Eurocentrism, instead self-reflecting rooted in diasporic knowledge working across various media including; writing, ceramics and film.
  • Valeria Miracapillo - An Ascension or The Fortune of Fortunes

    15 February 2022  6:45 pm - 7:00 pm

    A short radio narrative inspired by a summer tale. The dichotomy immanence - transcendence unfolds through a sonic environment made of field recording (the matter) and synthesis (the abstraction). The lyrical text contributes to tell the story of a vertical path, from the earth to the sky. To vanish is then the fortune of fortunes. Composed and recorded by Francesco Toninelli and Valeria Miracapillo. Texts by Francesco Toninelli, Valeria Miracapillo, Eugenio Montale.

    Valeria Miracapillo is an Italian composer and electronic musician based in Copenhagen from 2015. She programs her own instruments arranging the algorithmic framework within musical ideas often driven by physical and spatial concepts such as masses of sound grains, density of clouds, placement of speakers in the room. Synthesis and algorithms serve as foundation for a creative process inspired by the experimental and noise scene as much as avant garde film and magic realism literature.

    Francesco Toninelli is a composer, performer and producer from Florence, Italy, based in Copenhagen since 2018. His music is created with a special attention to the semantic use of recorded sounds, developing a research largely based within the relationship with the past and hypothesis for new narrations and articulations of obsolete aesthetics, weaving connections to baroque art, mythology, rurality. The result is crystalized in bizarre layerings referring as much to a toccata as to videogame sound design.

    Amaya – “Lullaby – Sonic Cradle”
     
    Lullaby-Sonic Cradle offers a unique musical experience in a relaxed setting with soothing sounds coupled with meditative vocals. Inspired by traditional Indian lullabies, this production captures timeless night-time sounds from around the world; chirping cicadas; the call of the night jar; the soft fall of rain; and locates them within the rhythmic pattern and soothing cadence of a lullaby. The performance invites audiences to sit back and relax into the sounds of night and be lulled to the edge of sleep.

  • Northfield Lenox - Back Lane

    15 February 2022  9:30 pm - 10:00 pm

    Back Lane is a radio play constructed with re-purposed audio from the 1932 film “Back Street”. The 90-year-old samples are surrounded by original music, new foley, field recordings and various media. The dialog is presented in the original sequence, but with the visuals and many key details and cues removed, more possibilities are opened. The central theme from the original story remains, a chain of events is set in motion by a simple decision that alters the lives of the characters completely, forever, and ends in a classic, ‘what if’… 

    Northfield Lenox is a one-person audio initiative producing electronic music and soundscapes that combine the use of computer based electronic instruments with samples from media archives, radio, and other field & audio recordings. Virtual instruments are used exclusively for all original musical content.

Marjorie Van Halteren - L’autre Cote De L'Autre (2:34)/8. Peter Basma Lord -  Out Looking - Looking Over (3:25)

    1. Olivia Furey and Alex Hall -  The Operators

    The Operators is a site specific work created by Olivia Furey and Blue Unguent, who performed and recorded interventions independently in telephone boxes; one in Auchendinny, the other in Gorgie, Edinburgh. Observations were made and voiced, sounds were created in-situ, passers by were alarmed. Through post-production, a disorderly conversation was fabricated between the two recordings in the hope of resurrecting a sense of communication.  

    Olivia Furey is a performance and sound artist based in Scotland. Olivia takes on a disruptive and hysterical persona in her performances, who vocally interacts with audiences in a challenging and absurd, yet humorous manner. Her persona also involves being an amateur musician who invents instruments. She searches for weird sounds through everyday objects such as doorbells. Olivia also explores assertive noise-making through electric guitar and sonic manipulation experiments. Blue Unguent (Alex Hall) is a self-taught sound artist and musician based in Edinburgh. He uses electronic interfaces and synthesizers to create atmospheres or manipulate existing sounds into new compositions.

    2. Radio Limbo - Walking in Limbo

    https://noodsradio.com/residents/radio-limbo              https://soundcloud.com/limbotapes
     
     
    3. Brooklynn Whidden - You Know That, Right

    “You Know That, Right?” is a piece about deflection. My story, recited by comedian Sam Feldman, is spoken in a voice that is not my own, presented in the form of a stand-up comedy act. The laughter is fake and there are no jokes, the voice presenting its words like a light-hearted story to a friend. The listener, however, will not be allowed to suspend disbelief. Raucous laughter punctuates the un-jokes, which later turn into delirious repetitions of single words and phrases.

    Brooklynn Whidden is a Toronto-based composer focusing on electronic media. His works explore anxiety and unease, and are often inspired by the horror genre and its musical conventions. Whidden graduated from the University of Toronto in 2018 with a BMus in Composition, where he studied under James Rolfe and Roger Bergs. In 2019 he produced an original soundtrack and SFX for indie video game, Pygmalion, a collaboration with Toronto artist Mary Verhoeven and coder Gillian Blekkenhorst.  Currently, Whidden is scoring the indie game Waterboy, by GremShak.

    4. Thomas Finbarr  - The King's Day Parade

    Every 5th of January the Magi parade though the streets of Spanish cities on their way to deliver gifts to every child, much like Santa Claus on Christmas day. The children line the streets to welcome them and are rewarded with sweets thrown from the floats. The source material for this piece is taken from recordings of one of these parades.

    The composition is in three movements, i) It's always Fun …..Oh Really?  ii) Hovering About
    iii) Maria, …  El Rey!

    First entering a studio as a bass player, Thomas Finbarr soon learnt his way around both analogue and digital recording. After an MSc in Sound Design at Edinburgh University he has worked as a recordist, sound designer and dialogue editor as well as creating his own sound pieces for festivals theatre productions and installations, including pieces at the Perth Concert Hall in Scotland and Medialab Prado in Madrid. He is currently living in Barcelona.

    5 Dani Gal & Bernhard Schreiner - Sandification

    Cloudification and Sandification deal with the deterioration of solid materials that transforms
    into topographical and geographical impossibilities. Through acoustic and semi-automated instrumental interactions the compositions interlock sounds of public spaces, nature and radio noises into each other. The complementary pieces are situated between soundscape, soundtrack and free improvisation to become intimate pieces that open up hallucinatory acousmatic space.

    Dani Gal: e-guitar, electric motors, effects, radio
    Bernhard Schreiner: male tanpura, snare drum, small objects, field-recordings

    Bernhard Schreiner (1971, Austria) studied at the Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende Künste, (Städelschule) in Frankfurt am Main. Schreiner’s work is spread over diverse media such as sound, photography, film, and installation. His artworks have been shown at IMMA-Dublin, Staedelmuseum-Frankfurt, Goethe-Institute-NYC, Schirn Kunsthalle-Frankfurt, NKV Wiesbaden, Kunsthalle Lingen, ...Some of his audio-works have been released with labels such as Baskaru (FR) or Small World (Los Angeles).

     Dani Gal (1975, Jerusalem) lives and works in Berlin. He studied at Bezalel Academy for Art and Design in Jerusalem, Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende Künste Städelschule in Frankfurt and in Cooper Union in New York. His films and art installations have been shown at the 54th VeniceBiennale (2011), Istanbul Biennale (2011), New Museum New York (2012), Kunsthalle St. Gallen Switzerland (2013), The Jewish Museum New York (2014),Berlinale Forum Expanded (2014), Kunsthaus Zurich (2015), Kunsthalle Wien(2015), Documenta 14 (2017), Centre Pompidou (2018) and at Club TransMedialeFestival Berlin (2020).

    7. Marjorie Van Halteren  - L’autre Cote De L'Autre

    Taking on the French language best I can. 

    A short pieces from an album I have been creating called “From My Lips to Odd Ears.” The concept behind these works is that they are nearly entirely created from my own voice as electronic impulses, including synthesised short melodies from spoken phrases, some brut playing (such as on harmonica) and all manner of effects. Other sounds are “found,” such as news broadcasts.

    8. Peter Basma Lord -  Out Looking - Looking Over

    A companion piece to https://newart.city/show/lookingout-lookingover

    Pulled between places and pulled between people. A document of my mum's formative years living between Sierra Leone, Lebanon, and England. Of loss. Of longing. Of belonging. My knowledge and understanding of these places I've never visited are informed by the personal words and histories of my mum and the detached observations of Google maps and image searches.

    Working across a variety of mediums including video, audio, electronic interactive works, and found objects, Peter Basma-Lord creates immersive installations both physical and virtual. Their work examines the relationship between the self and the mass, the real and the fake, loss and longing. Having spent several years co-running the Hill52 radio station and putting on nights in Glasgow they now live in Berlin where they continue to put on nights though much more URL than IRL these days!
