  • J Diaz - 30mg twice a day (1 hr 5)

    16 February 2022  12:00 am - 1:00 am

    This album features an hour-long piece with slow transitions between digital textures and organic sounds. I stretched (some) transitions as much as I could. I added a bit of contrast with found organic sounds that I then manipulated to make more electronic. Poetically, I sought to compose a piece that reflected my fears of taking medication for PTSD--how it might affect my creative work. Spoiler alert! Medication has helped me tremendously! This piece reflects my feelings towards medication before I began taking it.

    J Diaz is a sound artist based in Glasgow, UK. His work includes sound for theatre, dance, and concert stage. J’s research as a PhD student at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland concerns the restrictions of staff-based notation and the negotiation between it and his queer and Mexican identities —rather, how the note-head inevitably white-washes certain aspects of his lived experience.

  • Chelidon Frame & the Asynchronous Drone Orchestra

    16 February 2022  1:00 am - 2:15 am

    For the 2021 DroneDay edition I gathered eight drone / electronic musicians from Italy, asking them for a 10 minute contribution of sound, with a couple of simple rules (a reference pitch / scale). I gathered all those different (and async) tracks and merged them in a 70-minutes long composition that we premiered on Drone Day. The artists involved were: A Distant Shore, Andrea Marinelli, Davide aka Capi, Demetrio Cecchitelli, Discontinuation Of Treatment, Edoardo Cammisa, JQR, MonkeYear and myself.

    Chelidon Frame is an experimental electronic music project that mainly works with field recordings, radio interferences, guitars and processed sounds. His installations are experienced-based and suggest a dialogue between the location (both virtual and physical) and the sounds proposed, aiming to deliver a message in the simpler yet most effective way. The use of code, data analysis and data- driven sounds, allow information to be experienced anew. In his studio works and live sets different layers of sounds - guitars, synthesizers and custom-made instruments - piles up creating unexpected new soundscapes.

  • Wil Pertz - Goat

    16 February 2022  2:15 am - 3:00 am

    Goat was performed at Deajeon Gallery in Deajeon, Korea on June 30 2021 as part of a live art show called Amorphous. Over a 13-day period, local and international artists were invited to work on their art in a free and open live setting. Throughout each day of the gathering, Wil improvised over 35 hours of sound art. All of the sounds that were created during this time were unrehearsed and made live on the spot. The making of Goat can be found on Wil’s YouTube channel (iPhone audio only). This 8 channel ambisonic recording begins about 15 minutes into the work.

    Wil is an American composer currently residing and performing in Daejeon, South Korea. His music seeks to push the limits of expectation by mixing elements of tradition in classical music with current forms of technology. Much of his music falls into the category of ‘moment formʼ and tends to blur the line between departure and arrival that is so common in music of the past. In this way, the music may be considered to be a journey in time and space, where each moment of the journey is undifferentiated from the previous or next moment.

  • Absolute Value of Noise - Solar Radio (short version)

    16 February 2022  3:00 am - 4:30 am

    Absolute Value of Noise and Anna Friz are collaborating to produce a new outdoor sound installation for Wavefarm (located in Acra NY) in 2022. The piece centers around an automated radio station that is powered by the sun. It responds to its environment and the state of the sun by playing with simple AI sound synthesis algorithms - imitating the sounds of insects, birds, frogs, the wind moving through the trees, rain falling, magnetic phenomena and various waves. This radio piece mixes the synthetic sounds of the AI with radiophonic sounds and field recordings - featuring on-site recordings made on the land at Wavefarm. 

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

  • Absolute Value of Noise - Magnetic Radio

    16 February 2022  4:30 am - 5:45 am

    Magnetic Radio is formed from a collection of ELF (extremely low frequency) recordings made with a 28” diameter bicycle wheel-rim antenna. Sources of radiation are taken from performances, wandering around the neighbourhood, motors in motion, and "urban" areas within the city. The antenna tracks the sun across the sky, follows AM receivers as they are being tuned, plays with a speaker horn, picks up the sound of a commuter bus. A film projector spins. We hear motors that are powered by the rain and the sun, street signs, high-voltage diodes, electric bicycles, a cafe, and a walk along the road leading to an urban farm.

    Absolute Value of Noise (Peter Courtemanche) is a sound artist from Vancouver, Canada. He creates radio, installations, network projects, performances, and curatorial projects. He likes to work with "gadgetry" - custom turntables, lamp filaments, wire coils, high voltage ionizers, magnetic transceivers, and "little electronic brains" that observe and respond to local phenomena. He often works outdoors making installation pieces that comment on bio-diversity, extinction, and fragile eco-systems. He has been doing radio since 1988 and currently produces Insomnia Radio on CITR FM in Vancouver.

  • Antje Vowinckel - Gipfeltreffen

    16 February 2022  5:45 am - 6:00 am

    for dialect speakers and humming voices (2020) (Originally for four channels)


    A time paradox? Dialect melodies have been passed down for millennia, but it is not a technique that you learn - they only occur quite spontaneously, in the moment. No one makes a note. Control would chase them. The performers’ attempts to consciously hit the peaks and melodies seem absurd. But transferred in a new space they form a spatial environment themselves. vocal performers: Ensemble Maulwerker , Serge Baghdassarians and Antje Vowinckel Special thanks to Smithsonian Institution Washington D.C. and Deutsch-Belgische Gesellschaft.

    Antje Vowinckel (Berlin) 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, Ars Acustica Award of RNE/Spain, honorary mentions of Prix Ars Electronica and Phonurgia Nova.

  • Adrian Newton - Blackbird has spoken

    16 February 2022  7:00 am - 8:00 am

    Blackbirds are one of our commonest birds, yet produce one of the most beautiful songs of any native species. At the same time, the songs are complex and enigmatic. What are birds actually communicating, when they sing to each other? Why do they sometimes copy each other? What kind of information is being transferred? This piece explores these questions, while also examining the meaning of birdsong for human listeners, in a world that is changing because of human activity. 

    Adrian Newton is a sound artist and ecologist based in Dorset, UK. Most of his work focuses on using sound to explore the relationships between people and the environment. Areas of activity include soundscape composition, field recording, acoustic ecology and ecoacoustics, as well creation of radio art, sound art and installations. He has also been involved in site-specific theatre for many years. His work has been featured in a number of international festivals, including most recently the London Design Festival, and he is a regular contributor to internet radio stations such as CAMPFr.

    1. Cinzia Nistico  - One Dimension and a Half Episode 9

    Cinzia Nistico: 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.

    2. Alastair Duncan - Metalscape
     
    I love the sounds that metal makes and having taken a series of photographs of old, rusty, discoloured metal from the back of a fridge as well as using barbs in my tapestry weaving, I experimented with a collection of clips I had recorded of metal in different conditions. I primarily use Adobe Audition alongside other applications when working with sound as I find the spectral frequency display in Audition suits me very well as a visual artist. 

    I am a visual artist working in Wales as a tapestry weaver, photographer and sound recordist. Currently I am developing interactive audio as part of my weaving. I also produce short environmental walk videos using still photography and field recording
    My tapestry weaving can be seen (and heard) at https://www.alastair-duncan.com and StillWalks® can be found at https://www.stillwalks.com
    More of my sound recoding can be found on Soundcloud ( https://soundcloud.com/stillwalks ) and Bandcamp ( https://alastairduncan.bandcamp.com )
     
    3. Vincent Eoppolo - Morality Play (for Gerard Pape)

    A meditation on morality and dedicated to composer Gerard Pape.
     
    Vincent Eoppolo (Ioppolo) Wilmington, Delaware USA

    Eoppolo’s work is a synthesis of various sound art traditions such as musique concrete, acousmatic music, electro-acoustic music and radio art.  Eoppolo’s compositions have been presented at the New York City Electro-Acoustic Music Festival, the Ensemble Mise_en Open Studio Festival in Brooklyn, Utopie Sonore in Nantes, France and De Natura Sonorum in Rome, Italy. Many of his works have been featured on new music radio programs in France, Italy, Canada, Ireland, Scotland and the USA.    Eoppolo studied composition and theory at the Delaware School of Music.

    4. Ilia Rogatchevski & Laura Rogatchevskaia - Echo Chamber

    Echo Chamber explores the notions of routine and domesticity in times of pandemic. Composed from field recordings created during lockdown walkabouts and the performance of humdrum activities, the work interrogates the role that repetition plays in our everyday lives. Like many of us, the artists found themselves locked in a daily cycle that was limited to visiting playgrounds with their daughter, shopping for food and tidying the house. Static-like noise and VLF recordings made during regular walks in local parks periodically interrupt the domestic sounds to remind the listener of the unfortunate global context in which the composition is set.  

    Ilia Rogatchevski & Laura Rogatchevskaia are London-based multidisciplinary artists working within the intersections of sound, performance and visual media. Occasionally working under the alias Mute Frequencies, they have exhibited in or performed at various venues in Europe and the UK including Dilston Grove Gallery, IKLECTIK Art Lab, SPACE Studios and the Radio Revolten, Dronica and Splice festivals. The artists have also produced radiophonic works for previous Radiophrenia editions in 2016, 2017 and 2019.

    6. Chelidon Frame - Artemis
     
    Fifth chapter of the "Road to Nowhere" project (a series of videos that explore the sound creation process mainly with the use of tapes), "Artemis" is the most experimental piece of the lot, in which a series of piano samples are suitably treated and accompanied by radio interferences, to open up to a rhythmic panorama of processed guitars and radio frequencies.

    Chelidon Frame is an experimental electronic music project that mainly works with field recordings, radio interferences, guitars and processed sounds. His installations are experienced-based and suggest a dialogue between the location (both virtual and physical) and the sounds proposed, aiming to deliver a message in the simpler yet most effective way. The use of code, data analysis and data-driven sounds, allow information to be experienced anew. In his studio works and live sets different layers of sounds - guitars, synthesizers and custom-made instruments - piles up creating unexpected new soundscapes.

    7.  Ilaria Boffa / Marjorie Van Halteren / Jeff Gburek - Gray Angels

    Program of electroacoustic poetry featuring three short pieces. Ilaria Boffa (Italy), Jeff Gburek (USA/Poland) and myself all wrote new pieces on a theme. Titles: “Perhaps” (Boffa), “The Gray Angels” (Van Halteren), and “Black Holes Have Emotions” (Gburek). 

    Marjorie Van Halteren was born in Detroit, and lived for many years in New York City, where she was a poet, radio producer/director and commissioner of radio dramas and spoken word for WNYC Radio. She relocated to the North of France in the 1990’s, and has evolved into an electroacoustic composer and live improvisor.

  • Kick Down the Barriers - Ep3: Fatima Patel

    16 February 2022  9:00 am - 9:30 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.

  • James Prevett and Annie May Demozay - Conversation Pieces 3

    16 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.

  • Antrianna Moutoula - a continuous present you know it no is a continuous present

    16 February 2022  11:00 am - 12:00 pm

    “a continuous present you know it no, is a continuous present” is a live performance of nonstop languaging by Antrianna Moutoula. A solo, autotheoretical practice in which she performs streams of consciousness by tracing her thoughts through language simultaneously in spoken and written form. Acknowledging how conditioned and circumstantial this practice is, she implements no further edit. Nonstop languaging emerged from her need to articulate the present. Streams made of speculations, instant patterns, lyrics, tricks-to-trick-me, readymade thoughts, the feminine voice. By engaging with this practice in different contexts, she craves to contribute to a renegotiation of the confinements, norms, and protocols of knowledge production within artistic academic discourse. Always seeking ephemeral encounters with necessary others, she explores nonstop languaging in the format of a biweekly radio performance at Radio WORM.

    Antrianna Moutoula (Athens, 1994) has been performing, filming, and writing since 2011.

    She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Gerrit Rietveld Academie (Amsterdam, NL) and a Master of Performance Practices from ArtEZ University of the Arts (Arnhem, NL). Recurring themes in her work are the performativity of intimate relationships and the ordinary events of everyday life. She is puzzled by how to perform the real, an interest which in the past has led her into creating participatory works and performing alongside non trained performers such as her partner, family, and guests of the restaurant where she worked.

    Her works have been presented in the Netherlands (a.o. Stedelijk Museum, SSBA Salon, Frascati, Perdu, WORM), internationally (a.o. Treno sto Rouf/GR, Ar.co/PT, x-church/UK), and online.

  • Christian Mirande - Son Be Strong

    16 February 2022  12:00 pm - 12:30 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."

Sue Coulson is a visual artist who uses sound and text in relation to drawing and painting MK Lord is a musician, artist, writer, and performer. 2. Mark Cetilia & Joe Cantrell- Song for Søren Larsen This recording is a section of a live terrestrial radio broadcast of the premiere performance of Song for Søren Larsen on WXGC 90.7 FM, as part of an artist residency at the Wave Farm in June 2013. The piece is named after the scientist who discovered audio feedback, and uses radio and other broadcast media to generative audio via the electromagnetic spectrum. A network of three recursive audio feedback sub-systems was used to construct the performance. These systems include short wave loop antenna hardware, low power AM transmission, and the full-power signal of WGXC’s FM transmitter. Mark Cetilia is a sound / media artist working at the nexus of analog and digital technologies. Exploring the possibilities of generative systems in art, design, and sound practice, Cetilia’s work is an exercise in carefully controlled chaos. His work has beenscreened / installed / performed at numerous venues including ICA, STEIM, Café OTO, and Roulette. Joe Cantrellis a sound artist specializing in installations and performances inspired by the implications of technological obsolescence and decay.

A sound-word portrait of filmmaker Matt Hulse. 4. Melina Kamou - car wash system I recorded this sound piece inside a car while passing through a car wash system. Although it is an unedited found sound it feels like a composed, industrial electronic piece. Regarding radio in an era of frequently undigested mass information I submit a sound document from everyday life which can be re-experienced. Although being found, the sound composition feels like fiction too. I am interested in the "fiction" of everyday life. The sound piece was part of a video I made in 2015 and was shown in curated exhibitions by Felix Kubin.

Primarily working with film, video, photography, sound. 5. Sergei Kofman- when but wain we "when but wain we" is an experiment in deconstructing narrative with musical accompaniment. Storytelling is central to music, film, television, all kinds of media, and to various business and political pursuits as well. The purpose of this piece was to look for a new approach to storytelling and narrative. "when but wain we" takes the text form four different books ("Lolita", "Slaughterhouse Five", "For Whom the Bell Tolls", and "Steppenwolf"), and uses a computer program script to cut up and combine small sections from each into one "story". It begins with whole sentences from each book, and gradually disintegrates into smaller and smaller bits, ending with mere words from each novel re-combined in nonsensical ways. The musical accompaniment seeks to make sense out of the resulting text, and give it a narrative and some sense of arc. Sergei Kofman (b. 1996) is an imaginative young composer based in Toronto. Sergei recently completed his masters degree in Composition at the University of Toronto, where he was awarded the 2021 Ann H. Atkinson prize for an outstanding electroacoustic work, for his piece Voices in the Whir. He is active as a composer, producer, audio engineer, pianist, and educator. Sergei writes music for various media as well as the concert hall. He draws on an eclectic combination of influences in his work. His music has been performed by ensembles around Canada and the United States. 6. Martha Riva Palacio Obón - Partitura para coro de peces / Score for a fishchoir This sound essay in three tracks is part of a project called Followingcricketsaroundthehouse. I mix a single cricket chirping in different frequencies. Our rhythms get entangled, we become the cosmic chant of a shoal of fish: I The fish are ripples over the water surface. II The fish are electrons gliding over the water: an electric blue flash, ghost particles. III The fish sing a hymn to the sublime indifference of the magnetic fields.

    1) Adrien Pinet - Cosmos

    Synopsis :

    Through a poetic sequence of sound paintings, this experimental creation offers a sensory journey made of links and surprising metamorphoses.
     
    Directing, editing and mixing : Adrien Pinet

    Thanks to Flavien Gillié


    Author’s biography :

    Adrien Pinet is a sound designer living in Brussels, born April 20, 1995 and holder of a Master in sound from INSAS. Younger, Adrien wrote poems, was interested in philosophy, science, music, theater, martial arts, magic… He considers magic as a great inspiration. For him, magician and sound designer have the same desire to grind, divert, transform, hide objects or messages to create images, reveal the possibility of another reality. Now, Adrien does sound creation on various collaborative projects for cinema, music, theater, dance and radio. He also writes and carries out personal projects, particularly in radio fiction or experimental.
     
     
    2) Akari Komura - On the breath
     

    Synopsis on the work:
    The piece entirely comprises voice samples that I recorded during my daily vocal warm up exercises. The aesthetic goal was to create a musical piece out of this everyday routine to prepare my voice from an “incomplete” or “raw '' state to a full performance voice. In this piece, I recorded myself singing through a classical repertoire and cut out all the singing parts to be left with the abrupt sound of inhales between musical phrases. Then, I manipulated the recordings to create a timbre that is barely recognizable as human breaths and to transform into a percussive musical timbre.

    Bio:
    Akari Komura is a Japanese composer-vocalist. She grew up in Tokyo and has always been involved in performing arts from an early age through playing the piano, singing, and dancing modern ballet. Her breadth of work spans chamber ensemble, multimedia/electronic, dance, and vocal music. Her works have been presented at the Composers Conference, Atlantic Music Festival, soundSCAPE, Montreal Contemporary Music Lab.
    She holds a M.M. in Composition from the University of Michigan and a B.A. in Vocal Arts from the University of California, Irvine. Her major teachers include Evan Chambers, Roshanne Etezady, Frances Bennett, and Seth Houston.

  • Khadea Kuchenmeister - Deep Lake Murmurs

    16 February 2022  3:00 pm - 3:45 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.

  • Kunstradio Ep3 - “And they were prisoners” by Carlos Prieto Acevedo

    16 February 2022  4:00 pm - 4:30 pm

    Concept and sound editing: Carlos Prieto Acevedo Quotes: José Revueltas German Translation: Alexander Bruck Santos Recordings: Gudinni Cortina and Carlos Prieto (Hacienda de Santa Barbara, Tlaxcala; Archivo General de la Nación – Ex Lecumberri prison, Mexico City) Voices: Jan Machacek, Doris Steinbichler Music excerpts: Antonio Russek “Para espacios abiertos”, Rubén Patiño "Dungeon of laughter" Based on the experience of his incarceration in the Lecumberri prison in 1968, the communist Mexican writer José Revueltas wrote the novel “El Apando”, a crude meditation on the coexistence between the prisoners of the first panopticon built in Mexico in the 19th century. In addition to recounting the grotesque reality of the inhabitants of this punishment machine, reduced to satisfy their desires in subhuman conditions, the protagonist's monologue embodies in his descriptions the aesthetic effects of the oppression caused by the geometry of confinement, the hypodermic surveillance and physical abuse. All of these aspects of the prison, which were captured by Revueltas in his text (unpublished in German), can also be said of the experiences that we are living today in the Coronavirus-era under conditions of confinement and social distancing. Likewise, this reflects our current context of a narcissistic, consumerist society that not only creates abundant waste, but which also creates social marginalization and alienation. Inaugurated in 1900 by the dictator Porfirio Díaz, Lecumberri prison was Mexico’s first rationally conceived seclusion project, based on the designs of Jeremy Bentham. Barely a decade after beginning operations, it became the paradigm of what would become Mexican prisons: factories of corruption and human degradation. Known as the "Black Palace of Lecumberri" —a true branch of hell on earth— it was permanently closed in 1976 and transformed into the headquarters of the General Archive of the Nation, an institution dedicated to caring for the documentary memory of Mexico. Among the most famous people who were detained there are Ramón Mercader (Leon Trotsky's murderer), Pancho Villa, William Burroughs and the muralist David Alfaro Siqueiros. Based on excerpts from Revueltas’ novel, this radio piece is a meditation on the new and omnipresent reality of isolation and seclusion that we live in nowadays, made with sound walks recorded inside ex-Lecumberri prison and its surroundings, shopping centers, clandestine recordings from the Reclusorio Norte (Northern Prison) in Mexico City, and fragments of electronic music made by Mexican composers related to themes of imprisonment.
  • Richard Taylor - The Opportunists

    16 February 2022  4:30 pm - 5:00 pm

    The Opportunists is an audio piece originally produced for an online live-feed exhibition of sculptures installed on the roof terrace of a house in Glasgow’s Athlete’s Village, which was presented as part of Glasgow Open House Arts Festival 2021. It works as a standalone sound piece too. The intimate listening experience identifies nuances and aspects of connectedness, which were missed during each COVID-19 lockdown experience. The piece touches on Commonwealth Games sports: archery, synchronised swimming and lawn bowls. It also refers to how closeness is reconciled with people who are loved.

    Richard Taylor was born in Sheffield, UK, in 1985 and now lives in Glasgow. He likes to observe places and intimacies that tell a story of culture. With his observations, he playfully investigates historicity and connectedness by creating narrative-led encounters with objects and digital compilations.

  • Mobile Radio residency - Glasgow Calling Scale live with Cindy Islam

    16 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.

    Cindy Islam is a pseudonymous sound artist working with eastern archival recordings and frequencies to resurrect fossilised vibrations. Shapeshifting names allows the artist to forefront the sound as the driving force which formulates the work and not their identity. The artist believes in listening as a journey toward healing and that sonic geography has the power to reconnect broken lines of lineage. Warped and woven into this resonance is a constant critique of what it means to be an artist and how artistic labour is related to material reality and change.

    3) Lidia Zielinska - Insektarion (8:19)
     
    1) Nwando Ebizie - I SEDUCE 

    Nwando Ebizie is a constellation point for a spectrum of multidisciplinary works that call for RADICAL change.

    She challenges her audience to question their perceived realities through art personas, experimental theatre, neuroscience, music and African diasporic ritualistic dance. Carving out her own particular strand of Afrofuturism, she combines research into the neuroscience of perception (inspired by her own neurodiversity) and an obsession with science fiction with a ritualistic live art practice.

    Works include her immersive sensory environment Distorted Constellations, her pop persona Lady Vendredi (a blaxploitation heroine from another dimension!) and the building of her long-term operatic experience, Hildegard: Visions. This award winning work has toured across the world. She has performed in Tokyo (Bonobo), Rio de Janeiro (Tempo Festival), Berlin (Chalet), Latvia (Baltais Fligelis Concert Hall) and Zurich (Blok) as well as across the UK from Home MCR to the Barbican and Southbank Centre.

    Nwando works across media, genre and artforms creating mythopoetic metanarratives and alternate realities. Her work is a drawing together of the pieces that she is in a frozen moment of ever-living infinite regress.

    Always political and grounded in a mytho-scientific perspective she invites viewers and participants to join her at the Crossroads. At the crossroads where you can choose to pass through the cosmic mirror and touch alternate realities. The realities of what could have been and what should have been and what may possibly be. She works with speculative fictions, possible dreams and lucid worlds.

    2) Ana Seferović and Jovana Backović - Freedom throws the prescribed tomorrow down the mountain

    A collaborative work of Ana Seferović, a poet and Jovana Backović, a composer.

    This piece is a part of  ongoing ethno-musicological  project “Introduction into the night rituals”, that gathers local stories and family mythologies about women of South-East Serbia. Both Jovana and Ana were born in Belgrade and living in London.
    The Poem is from Ana’s poetry collection Materina.

    3) Lidia Zielinska - Insektarion

    Insektarion is a piece about Wroclaw - one of the biggest cities in Poland. "My" Wroclaw is not so much the city’s audiosphere, but rather a mental sketch of memory. The work established anew the atmosphere, sound logos, symbols and sonic emblems recalling different situations and people in Wroclaw. I used a field recordings made by myself and from the archive of the Soundscape Research Studio of the University of Wroclaw.


    Lidia Zielińska – Polish composer, professor of composition and director of the Electroacoustic Music Studio at the Academy of Music in Poznan; numerous awards for orchestral music, multimedia, electroacoustic works; books, articles, papers, guest lectures (topics: sound and music, acoustic ecology, Polish experimental music, traditional Japan music), summer courses, workshops in Europe, both Americas, China, Japan, New Zealand; electroacoustic compositions realized at the EMS Stockholm, SE PR Warsaw, IPEM/BRT Gent, ZKM Karlsruhe, Experimentalstudio des SWR Freiburg; vice-president of the Polish Society for Electroacoustic Music, former vice-president of the Polish Composers’ Union, programming committee member of the “Warsaw Autumn” Festival.

  • Timothea Armour - East Lothian Gothic Episode 4

    16 February 2022  6:30 pm - 7:00 pm

    East Lothian Gothic is a radio play, haunted by a TV series, in six parts.

    As in, it is a radio play, about the making of a TV series, a supernatural, art-world crime drama set in East Lothian, that doesn't exist.

    The three main characters – Pitch, Story and Memoir - with their different modes of storytelling, and the kind of backdrop or scenery that's provided by the other voices (including a local newspaper, a local amateur historian and a TripAdvisor reviewer) embody a process of navigating different ways of telling the same story, describing the same place or landscape, or recounting the same events.

    Field recordings were made on location in East Lothian from 2015-20 and all the characters' parts were recorded remotely during lockdown in November 2020. The scripts are based on a series of real events that took place from 2015-20.

    Timothea Armour is an artist, writer (and bartender) living in Leith. She is interested in the ways in which social lives and networks of support can be documented in art, through writing and informal or amateur forms of knowledge and networks of distribution – anecdote, music fandom, field recording.

  • RIVERSSSOUNDS

    16 February 2022  7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

    RIVERSSSOUNDS is a platform for virtual sonic experiences and an online residency program.

    RIVERSSSOUNDS invites you to navigate the rivers of Europe via the microphones of sound artists. By using digital tools and artistic imagination, RIVERSSSOUNDS is a virtual portal for connecting the physical realities of different cities through sound. A river is a constant flow. It crosses borders yet remains a steady contour on a map, even as borders change. A river is a part of the fabric of cities, generating specific industries, recreational activities, and cultural identities. Nevertheless, a river itself is not belonging. Rather, it runs across the land, constantly reminding us of how much we share in spite of borders. 

    RIVERSSSOUNDS unites sound artists working with soundscapes and field recording. Each month the platform hosted up to three online residents from different European countries that are based in cities with a river. The residents created sound works reflecting the identity of the river in their cities. In addition, each resident held an artist talk, contributed to the sound library with field recordings of their river, and a soundwalk. Final artworks were presented each month online. For the first edition, the platform hosted 16 monthly residencies from December 2020 until June 2021. 

    Curatorial team: Zhan Pobe, Anna Khvyl, Anamaria Pravicencu 



    RIVERSSSOUNDS is organized by DZESTRA (Chernivtsi, UA) in partnership with SEMI SILENT / Asociaţia Jumătatea plină (Bucharest, RO) and supported by the European Union under the House of Europe programme.

    1. Conor Molloy - Sunderland Council’s Filthy Secret

    Ever wondered why Sunderland are always the first constituency to declare their vote count for the general election? We went on a mission to find out, and it’s bloody disgusting!

    Conor Molloy is a practicing filmmaker and writer based in Glasgow’s Southside who took to making radiosketches during lockdown. His style intends to create humour by blending surrealist writing with factual tone and delivery. This piece was performed by Dr Kirsty Jones, with music composed by Lady Muck and Janos Hardi.

    2 Radio Limbo Helpline – Marbles

    Radio Limbo is an engaging world of recycled radio, signature sound design and lo-fi musical illustrations. This collection of Radio Limbo's cut 'n' paste sketches, improvisations and radiophonic sound art, are highlights from their monthly show on Noods Radio, Bristol. 
    From Bible stories cut with commercials, surreal monologues, or limbological horoscopes, to number-station style jingles, cloud spotting, and the Short Wave Ghost Ensemble. Radio Limbo observes many corners of radio with a beady eye, and re-imagines them with a stylised mark of it's own.


    Produced by Pete Hazell & Sean Lee.

    This piece belongs to the pornographic project Tympan Cul-cul. Short and vigorous version of its elder sibling Lignum Suavium.

    Pauline Achart was born in 1984. After that, she lived a little, thought a little, played music, made choices, changed her mind, wrote, loved a lot, learnt a lot. Now, she walks her microphones from obsession to obsession. The sound is the support that suits her the most, as it discloses the secrecy behind the audible, and she likes that.

    She created the Tympan Cul-Cul aural project, an experimental space for a peculiar, political and poetical pornography. She learnt her craft little by little, and also creates other aural documentary and creative objects of many formats.

    4. Christie Blizard - Beam
     
    This is a soundscape and experimental music piece in which I explore different memories and spaces. This was recorded live on Sept 23rd, 2021 and was created with two analog synthesizers, a delay and reverb pedal.

    Christie Blizard was born in rural Indiana and lives in Texas. Her work intersects sound, sculpture, performance and painting. She was a participant of Skowhegan in 2018 and has attended other residencies such as MacDowell and Artpace. Shows include those at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, School of Visual Arts, Black Mountain College, Good Morning America, the Roswell UFO Convention, and the Today show. She has been featured in Hyperallergic, ArtNews, Art in America, and NY Arts Magazine. Recent performances include those at Cloaca Projects in San Francisco, Interference Fest in Austin, TX, Marfa Myths, and an \opera in Fortworth, TX.

    5. Ilaria Boffa -Narrative

    Narrative is a short documentary. Special thanks to Venetian poet Francesco Sassetto for being my 'Cicerone' in Venice and to Signor Ernesto Ortis, recently passed away, for his story of hard work and sacrifice, for sharing his intimate memories and for his kindness.
    Field recording and interviews taken at Salizada S.Giustina and Fondamenta dei Friuliani (Venezia) in 2020.

    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.

    6. Anette Gellein - Warped Reptile Park

    Mixed field/found recordings, guitar and electronic sounds.

    I started making experimental sound works when I was around 17 years old, quite quickly after I quit doing my guitar lessons. At this point I liberated myself from a form that did not really fit me and my interests. I did not know that there existed a world of experimental music and sound art, but approached it on my own rather unknowingly about the bigger context and history. Which I of course later learned to love, and it made me feel less weird and lonely!
     
    Many of my earlier works have been more influenced by my guitar playing, mixing it with field recordings and other digital electronic sounds and filters. Which you can also hear from the works I have submitted, in addition to the the new piece from 2021 We won’t take it anymore, 5, 6, 7, 8.
     
    Anette Gellein (b.1995) multimedia artist currently based in Stavanger, Norway.
     
    7. David Curington - venting meaning

    “venting meaning” is a dense soundscape built from a musical mind-map of the human voice. Samples include the sounds my own voice can make, voices of authority and improvisations with online text-to-speech programs, all of which are processed and overlaid nonlinearly for listeners to navigate their own way through the resulting texture.

    David is an ambient noise artist and abstract photographer based in Manchester who adopts similar aesthetics and processes for creating densely layered and immersive textures in both disciplines. Trained as a classical composer and oboist, his interests include noise, improvisation, failure, complexity, iterative processes, non-linearity and reconceptualising the oboe. His music has been featured on Freeness on BBC Radio 3 and David is a former winner of the RPS Composition Prize.

    8. The Keeling Curve - Waterloo Bridge

    ‘Waterloo Bridge’is a dark meditation on the history and impacts of climate breakdown. It features the written court statement of an environmental protester arrested on Waterloo Bridge in April 2019, one of over 1,100 people arrested in what was described as ‘the biggest civil disobedience event in recent British history’. The statement is set to layers of looped violin melodies and synthesizers, morphing from the unsettled to the familiar when, after a desperate climax, a rendition of the nursery rhyme ‘London’s Burning’ emerges. ‘Waterloo Bridge’ is the final track of The Keeling Curve’s debut E.P. Turpentine Tree.

    The Keeling Curve is an electronic music duo comprising composer Will Frampton and violinist Rhiannon Bedford. They write and record ambient and experimental music exploring humankind’s relationship to nature, using synthesizers, tape loops, extended violin techniques and found sound. Since formation in early 2020 they have released three E.Ps., been awarded grants from Sound and Music and Arts&Heritage, and have written music for Whatstick and Proxemics Theatre companies. They are currently working on a site-specific work with artist Nastassja Simensky as well as an L.P. in collaboration with ‘Tape Loop Orchestra’.
