    more details

    The World Organ, a installation created by musician, composer and sound artist Giles Perring, is a system of tubes that listens to the world and relays what it hears as a live audio stream at  http://www.worldorgan.com. It’s part of a wider cross-media approach to the idea of landscape. The World Organ portrays its surroundings sonically. An acoustic phenomenon that the Organ is designed to create, weaves a musical layer into the sounds of the natural world. The World Organ is installed at the Sound of Jura Studio at Knockrome,on Jura, overlooking Lowlandmans Bay.

    Giles Perring is a musician, record producer, sound sculptor and cross media artist. In 1983 he was a founder member of the sonic sculpture collective Echo City. His many collaborations include work with Fad Gadget, Albert Kuvesin & Yat Kha, Kevin Godley, Alan Wilkinson, John Cayley, Melanie Pappenheim and Ivor Kallin. His own solo projects, aside from a successful catalogue as a record producer and TV/Film composer, includes his series of performances with live telephony, ‘The Exchange’. It featured in Glasgow’s Sonica in 2013 and he streamed it worldwide in Sept 2019 for Charts Argyll & The Isles. Helives and works on the Isle of Jura where he maintains a working croft, a music studio and a creative space.

  • Naitsabes Rebok - Vögel sind komische Vögel/Birds Are Funny Birds

    14 November 2020 @ 7:00 am - 8:00 am

    more details

    „Vögel sind komische Vögel /Birds Are Funny Birds“ is a sonic walk through the world of birdsong and birdrelated music. „Komischer Vogel“ is an odd person in german.

    It starts friendly andpeaceful, but the mood is changing constantly. We hear recordings made by birdwatchers a hundred years ago, chirping synthesizers, professional whistlers andbirdcall imitators. Eric Dolphy and Charlie Parker duel with some birds from Venezuela and in the end no one can tell if the sounds are made by animals or men. The whole 60 Minutes are accompanied by an acoustic drone of birdsongs.

    My Name is Till Kober when Iam an independent radio presenter on „ByteFM“ and german public radio„Deutschlandfunk Kultur“, I am Naitsabes Rebok when I play music. I am 46 years old and live in Berlin with my wife and my son. For breakfast I like some egg and some tea, but most of all I like to talk about me.

    1. Kirsten Millar – M8 + M8s

    During lockdown civic spaces changed; with reduced noise and air pollution we were able to collectively reimagine cities with roads and streets becoming social spaces. This year the Kingston Bridge has been proposed as a listed structure. Should we be looking beyond the bridge’s functionality and reimagine its purpose?  There is a correlation between air pollution and increased risk of COVID-19. With a lack of public space in the city centre should we reconsider how our cities are built and who they benefit? This work comprises a conversation over dinner on Glasgow’s built environment and sounds of the Kingston Bridge.

    My current practice takes place outwith a studio space working with resourceful and economical materials. By working with pre fabricated industrial materials, as well as captured and live sounds, the work moves away from the idea of craft, creating installations that translate exterior landscapes into alternate spaces. I often look into the socio-political history of site and place bringing it back to bodily experiences seeing how this affects our minds/health and form our ideas of place.

    2. Jess Shane – The Juicy Part

    In web content and documentary makers, presenters tend to contextualize their traumatic experiences in terms of traditional narrative arcs; suspense, climax,and resolution. Often, this results in commodification; trauma becomes ‘story’ and the underpinning systems of power fall to the wayside. While sharing details of trauma is valuable, sculpting them to fit a medium where views are money is different from recounting them to a therapist. The Juicy Part consists of segments of confessional YouTube videos so as to emphasize the disconnect between people relaying their trauma with sincerity, while simultaneously using entertainment tropes to entice listeners to lean in.

    Jess Shane is a Canadian audio producer, whose work has aired on BBC’s Short Cuts, WBEZ’s Re:Sound, and across the CBC network. She has presented work at Open City Documentary Festival,Audiocraft, Hearsay Audio Festival, the International Features Conference, and On Air Fest. Jess is a co-founder of Constellations, a project for sound art and experimental audio.

    4.     Diana Duta – IOU (excerpt)

    In 1867, Alexander Melville Bell published his Visible Speech, a visual phonetic alphabet mapping the position of the lips, throat and tongue as they produce speech, originally intended to help deaf people articulate language. Diana Duta has created a series of circular scripts containing aleatory sequences fromBell’s alphabet – mixing verbal and non-verbal sounds, human and non-human, such as contempt, annoyance, pain, sawing wood, or the grunt of a pig – which were interpreted by five voice performers: camille gérenton, Simone Basani, Barry Fitzgerald, Myriam Van Imschoot and Marcus Bergner and blended together in this composition.

    Diana Duta is an artist based in Brussels since 2016. Her project Jambes is a recording studio commissioning new work by artists interested in experimenting with sound and voice.

    5. Katie Currie – Extractor Fantasia

    During the peak of lockdown I struggled a lot with the lack of true human contact. I asked the people I would usually have around me to send recordings of sounds from their homes or workplaces, allowing me to enter into their spaces with them. These individual sounds have been arranged together like all the instruments in an orchestra – a symphony of isolation.

     https://www.katiecurrie.co.uk/

    6. Beverley Hood – We began as part of the body

    We began as part of the body is a spoken word sound piece using speech synthesis, inspired by the organotypic artificial skin cells, cultivated within the eczema genetic research laboratory of Professor Sara Brown (University of Dundee). Scripted from the point of view of the artificial skin cells, which are both real and synthetic, it was written in response to interviews with the lab staff,conducted as part of an artist residency. The piece leads the audience through the cells’ journey, during their short, precious, three weeks long ‘in-vitro’ life, from operating theatre to lab, and finally to disposal.

    Beverley Hood is an artist and Reader in Technological Embodiment & Creative Practice, at the University of Edinburgh. Since the mid 1990’s she has investigated the impact of technology and science on human experience through the creation of digital media and performance arts projects, and writing. She works collaboratively, developing projects involving a range of practitioners, including medical researchers, scientists, writers,technologists, dancers, actors and composers. Her work has been performed and exhibited at venues and events internationally including: Stockholm Kulturhuser; V&A Digital Futures;Talbot Rice Gallery; Edinburgh Art Festival;ISEA; CCA Glasgow; Institute of Contemporary Art, London.

    7. Isabelle Stragliati – The Fire that Never Stops

    Chants, an accent, atmospheres already overheard or dreamed of, boat engines and lapping: we are in India, on the water, by the water. We come to die here. Place of destination and place of passage, of the great passage to a mystical afterlife, this city with multiple names also bears the lesser known name of Maha Shmashan Puri, “the fire that never stops”.

    Isa Stragliati is a sound artist, radio producer, composer and dj living in Grenoble.

    8. Lydia Davies – Dog hairs

    The voice recounts a series of interconnected vignettes of conversations, thoughts and
    encounters. These segments are formed out of forgotten objects, bits of debris, receptacles and cavities, and draw on the embodied experiences of the narrator – a sideways glance, an object reached for at a stretch, the gravitational pull as they run down a slope. The pace of the voice drags and tightens against various percussive and instrumental rhythms, and occasionally snags on a phrase in the flow of speech. Drawing on research surrounding narrative theories of the self, ‘Dog hairs’ antagonises a subjective sense of self-continuity across time.

    I am an artist based in Glasgow, working across writing, sound and moving image. My work
    draws on temporal and embodied features of perceptual experience, often through durational
    or linguistic devices which play with degrees of attentiveness. My practice draws on research
    concerning the voice, how the self is constructed through interactions and relations with others, and ways in which vision is coded by dominant systems.

  • Alexis Weaver - Mineral Disobedience

    14 November 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm

    more details

    Mineral Disobedience is an experimental soundscape inspired by an unofficial war waged in Sydney, Australia. Known for its natural beauty, the Emerald city is experiencing a period of rampant development; mirroring the wider world. Industry leaders must increasingly engage with environmental concerns raised by the public, as has been demonstrated by the ongoing climate change protests. For the latter group, this is a deeply personal issue which must affect the way we all interact with nature forever; for the former, it seems climate collapse is an administrative nuisance rather than impending reality. I use this context as a starting point to explore how Human, Machine and Animal might interact if the machines and tools we use in our taming of Nature were given anthropomorphic voices. Field recordings of construction sites and the natural world intersect as the machinery rattles to life. How would the diggers, jackhammers, trucks, the frames of the skyscrapers themselves, interact with their surroundings if liberated from their day jobs? The minerals from the ground, re-moulded into the building blocks of humankind, would surely have some things to say.

    The piece charts a loose journey through the life of such machines, including the monotony of the construction site, hearing the dazzling voices of many humans, a flirtation with the natural world, and an inevitable return to ordained duty. The natural resonances of these field recordings inform the melodic content of the piece, including the recurring, poignant melody.

    Alexis Weaver is an electroacoustic composer based in Sydney, Australia. Born in the Shoalhaven, Alexis grew up learning flute, voice and harp before commencing study at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music in 2014. Now, she draws on her classical music upbringing in a slightly different way, creating whimsical and adventurous electroacoustic works which celebrate the emotive capabilities of sound. While her principal interest lies in composing fixed-media acousmatic music, she has also composed soundtracks for animations, short stories, radio, dance and theatre, and exhibited audio-visual installations.

    Alexis is also co-founder of female composer collective lost+sound, who in 2018 launched a series of concerts celebrating established and emerging artists working in experimental music fields. ​

    3. Fabian Zuniga – Montaña

    A number of documented soundscapes recorded with the mindset of showcasing a perspective of reality. The idea it’s to create an awareness of the soundscapes that exists, the combinations of worlds, the movements, the rhythms, the tempos, the sensations and energy that the sounds around us create, the randomness, the consciousness and subconsciousness in sound creating and listening. How conscious acts from an outsider perspective, form part of a subconscious whole. These recordings are reminders of what surround us, what influences us, what shapes us, what we are part of.

    Born and raised in Costa Rica, with a degree in Film and Television. Even though I work in several aspects of the audiovisual production, sound it’s my main field. In 2017 I did a postgraduate in arts in sound in Belgium called EPAS. During EPAS I discovered new ways of listening and viewpoints towards sound, as well as sound art. The last couple of years, I have been mostly interested and documenting soundscapes and its role in our sound world/life.
    Documentary, randomness, surrealism, consciousness and subconsciousness, narrative sound would describe my recent approach.

    5. Edward Bruce – Tackled and Lost

    In sound work Tackled and Lost, genders and gamecodes are ‘mixed’ in a kind of constantly developing hybrid of boys and girls,football and netball. I am interested in binaries or polar situations like ‘attack / defence’, ‘blue team, green team’, ‘male / female’ and how they breakdown. I put them in a ‘game’ situation where they are in free play continually.There is no winning and losing, just a mixing, an opposing, a coming together,a breaking apart; all happening constantly in a free matrix which is thespace  of the imaginary ‘games court’.

    Born in Oxford in 1971. Multi-media artist, Edward Bruce has a M.Litt. in Fine ArtPractice from the Glasgow School of Artand a BA in Fine Art from NorthumbriaUniversity. After his degree, he lived and worked in London and exhibited withthe Glue Factory Group. He lived in Liverpool from 2003 -2017 and his work formed part of the EuropeanCapital of Culture programme.

    An audio poem asking the listener to consider what happens in the spaces we have abandoned.

    Emily Albee is a multimedia artist living in Atlanta, GA. She is currently an MFA candidate at
    Georgia State University, working towards a degree in Ceramics. Her work focuses on the
    human/animal connection, with special attention on dreams and the mythic imagination.

    7. Isabella Rahme – Midnight (for harp and mixed media)

    This work exists as an exploration of a limited number of sounds and extended techniques employed on the harp, which throughout the work undergo a number of transformations until they reach obscurity. The name is an acknowledgement of the impact the current pandemic, and the associated quarantine, has had on many people’s daily lives, including their sleep schedules. It is an ode to all those who are now regularly experiencing many more midnights awake, and the constant flicker between both the calm and uneasy nature of the quiet night.

    Isabella Rahme is an emerging harpist and composer based in Sydney, Australia. Currently undertaking her Bachelor of Music (Composition) at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, she has written for choirs and ensembles, and more recently composed within the electroacoustic music practice. Her compositional style utilises both functional harmonic language and non-functional tonality, combining lyrical and avant-garde elements in a way that is contemplative and emotional.

    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.

    5. Johann Diedrick – Daybreak

    Daybreak- Recorded outside of my apartment window, April 5th 2020, around 6am.

    It is impossible to not notice how much more quiet the world has become during this time of global pandemic. With the reduction of human activity outside, the ambient noise floor around us has decreased and our sonic environment is less punctuated by the sounds of human activity (commuting, playing in parks,parties and nightlife) that we often associate with a thriving society. Many have welcomed this transition as a moment to hear more closely to our shared soundscape, as noises once impossible to hear over the loudness are now able to reveal themselves. Others find this silence a grim indication that these times are now ones of stillness, inactivity, and death. For me, I wanted to make field recordings of this moment, described by some as The Sudden Quiet, as ar ecord of how our sonic environment has radically changed during this outbreak,as a way to remember what it was like to live in this time of crisis.

    Johann Diedrick is an artist, engineer, and musician that makes installations,performances, and sculptures for exploring the world through our ears. He surfaces vibratory histories of past interactions inscribed in material and embedded in space, peeling back sonic layers to reveal hidden memories and untold stories. He shares his tools and techniques through listening tours,workshops, and open-source hardware/software. He is the founder of A Quiet Life, a sonic engineering and research studio that designs and builds audio-related software and hardware products for delightfully encountering our environment and each other. He is currently a 2020 Technology Artist-in-Residence at Pioneer Works and a recipient of a 2020 Brooklyn Arts Fund grant from the Brooklyn Arts Council.

    6. Jessa Mockridge – GUT RECORDING

    synopsis: A lover’s spat between GUT and VOICE; with hot chip fantasying, gut to gut call and response,and sweet soothing David Attenborough. A short audio piece put together during lockdown in London using recordings made in and around my shared house.This work was towards a group (remote) residency at Wysing with artists:Rebecca Jagoe, Maija Timonen, Rosa-Johan Uddoh and Anna Zett.

    I’m an artist and writer (Cape Town) living inLondon. I work with print, performance, sound and moving image.

  • tandsmør - ever and ever (forever and ever)

    14 November 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 3:50 pm

    more details

    Ever and ever, forever and ever, you’ll be the one that shines in me like the morning sun. (This is an audiowork about joy and self-love and their interplay.) Ever and ever, forever and ever, you’ll be my spring, my rainbow’s end and the song I sing. (Initially envisioned as an hour long rendition of ‘forever and ever’ by Demis Roussos, the piece evolved to be a reflection on karaoke as a form of love.) Take me far beyond imagination. You’re my dream come true, my consolation. (Inspired by the philosophies of Audre Lorde, Sonya Renee Taylor, Prentis Hemphill, adrienne maree brown and doggface from instagram, along with the love songs of Roussos, Burt Bacharach and Whitney Houston, the piece evokes joy as an act of resistance to capitalism.) You’ll be my dream, my symphony, my own lover’s theme. (The piece practices self-love by singing love songs to itself. The piece remembers joyful dreams dreamt during lockdown, euphoric dreams of endless space, adventure, friendship and belonging.) Ever and ever, forever and ever, my destiny will follow you eternally.

  • Lidia Zielinska - Musica Huaman or How Symphonies Are Born

    14 November 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 7:00 pm

    more details

    “Musica Humana…” is a radio piece addressed to an individual single listener, not to a concert audience, as a “soundscape” talking through the sounds but withoutwords. It describes sources of inspiration for composer’s imagination. The topic is my Little Atrophic Symphony and the reconstruction of the process of composing it. In the case of woman composer busy with running home, with cooking and cleaning, the process of composing looks a little differently from this one concerning a man composer, armed with a wife and many other helps giving him the opportunity to sail in heaven of metaphysics and creation.

    1. Matthew Shaw, Kit Vaughan and Rob Knight – The Nightingales of Prime Coppice

    Ron Knight was a 92 year old resident of the Dorset village Whitchurch Canonicorum at the point this programme was made. Rob passed away a few weeks after this was recorded,

    I visited Rob with Kit Vaughan to talk with Rob about his memories of thevillage. Rob was born in Whitchurch Canonicorum and apart from his military service he remained there all his life.

    Rob played us a recording from the only tape of the dawn and evening birdsong at Prime Coppice recorded in 1970. Rob reflected on changes in the village, it’s harvest customs and to the local wildlife.

    Prime Coppice is a 52 acre wood located in the beautiful Marshwood Vale in West Dorset. The wood is the last large remaining block of ancient woodland coppiceof that size in the West Dorset Area.

    The wood was once a vibrant and thriving working woodland, hence the name Prime Coppice. Historically the wood was an excellent example of a community working woodland providing a wide range of livelihood and coppice products eg:employment, training, cider, firewood, charcoal, timber, hazel and ash hurdles,baskets and bean sticks etc. Historically the area adjacent to the wood was known as the kings moot where the local leaders would meet to discuss affairs and surrounding the woodland there is a rich history including the finding of a bronze age Viking axe head and the old Marshwood castle and deer park. The woodland and Marshwood vale where the wood sits is ringed by a series of 7 ancient hill forts including the famous Pilsdon Pen.

  • Joan Schuman - Woolgathering

    14 November 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 8:00 pm

    more details

    It has been proposed that there is a singleway, artistic and testimonial, to communicate a catastrophe: narrate it in it spure facticity. Like a dream? Dense with truth and linear detail, full of spurs, we spin through visual dislocations all night. Woolgathering meanders around collective catastrophes, animal-others and the contradictory disasters of the dreamscape through composed stories and a goat intermission. These are joyful and curious disasters. They confound and charm in their numinous animal skins and bones and bodies.

    I create radio art, organize sound-makers at Earlid, mentor radio fellows at Wave Farm, and teach sonic culture and production via online courses at The New School for Public Engagement. I am mesmerized by forest silences and ocean smells and enormous trees in Northern California along the U.S. West Coast,where I live and return to from other geographies.

    1. Ricardo Paraiso Silvestre – Travel      

    It has always fascinated me how even a short piece of audio can contain a multitude of sources to elaborate audio works. Samples can be stretched, reversed, re-engineered, distorted both physically and electronically and suffer what ever alteration you can imagine.
    Sounds can be taken out of context and introduced in totally new scenarios.
    In this piece I took a very short recording of a street scene in Lisbon´s quiet Graça neighbourhood and used it to construct a space voyage.

    Ricardo Paraíso Silvestre is a sound artist living in Oeiras Portugal. With a background in plant pathology and sculpture he Collects everyday sounds with the intent of altering them physically and electronically in order to remove them from context and give them new uses.

    2. Ryan Frame – At the Races       

    A piece solely based on the names of racehorses running on the 19th of Sep 2020. Recorded directly to a Sony ICD-UX560 recorder.

    Ryan Frame is a now at home ex office worker and experimental field recording artist. Based in Edinburgh, his recordings from pubs, streets, buses and his own flat are all captured on his iphone or small sony recorder. He also dabbles with improvised electronics, radio static, drum machines and samples                 

    3. Matt Byrd – Clastic Composition 8 (For Donnie Fredericks) 

    The eighth in a series of nine Clastic Compositions, 8 (For Donnie Fredericks) is made of entirely fresh field recordings made on the very threshold of self and sanity, arranged with a wink towards the non-oblong.

    Matt Byrd has been making records since hearing The Beatles and Stockhausen as a kid, records of and in between Big Concept Art Rock Albums and Electronic Suites and Stellar Emissions like the numbered Clastic Compositions 1-9. As the feeling of the end of the world draws nigh, he’s become focused on collaborative beat/noise-work, field recording, and the piano.

    4. Steve Bates – The Unhearable

    The Unhearable is a work for radio transmission based on research into historical and contemporary experiences of auditory hallucination. Drawn from the sonic archive of a larger,
    ongoing project, Black Seas. The Unhearable is inspired by the breadth and depth of this sound world in both pathological and non-pathological instances and the continuum between
    these two extremes. The Unhearable draws from horror literature and film, cognitive science,
    philosophy, telecommunications history and sound studies, religious studies, post-colonialism

    and queer studies, cognitive science, mysticism, early psychiatry, 19th and 20th century psychic journals, and shared stories.

    Steve Bates is an artist and musician currently living in Saskatoon. His work has been exhibited and performed in Canada, Europe, Chile, Senegal and the United States, at such galleries as Casino Luxembourg, Musée d’art contemporain du Montréal, Dazibao, and Fonderie Darling as well as festivals including Suoni per il Popolo, Mutek, and Tuned City. His work listens to boundaries and borders, points of contact and conflict. Thresholds are explored, stretched and blurred. The sonic is the starting point for his projects which are evocations of communication networks and systems, or expressions of spatial and temporal experience. He works in the field, on the air, in museological/gallery and performance contexts. These shifting territories reflect the content of his practice.

  • Anna Kravets - Somebody There

    14 November 2020 @ 10:00 pm - 12:00 am

    more details

    The work’s dramaturgy is centered around the idea of disintegration or loss of a common language and the unintelligibilities within speech. Traveling through the most urgent themes of nowadays often addressed by means of art – climate, feminism, societal polarization – the multilayered work attempts to make a sonic reenactment of that disintegration, while asking questions about selfhood and the matter of art, potentials and strategies of communication, particularly in Eastern Europe. Materials used in it are soundscapes, conversations, interviews, and a participatory performance/ collective game experience about a shifted self.  Somebody There is being created in the framework of Biennale Matter of Art in Prague.

    13 November 2020 @ 11:00 pm - 14 November 2020 @ 1:30 am

    more details

    This submission has been created from only two Tascam DR05 samples taken on the same day/night and then edited in Ableton live and with only a simple delay applied after arranging and chopping.  The context is a day/night of drinking culminating in the unknown quantity of getting from where you are to where home is with mind repetition, in skull noise loops, drunk yelps and squawking laughter with occasional full sentences and empty street drama.  The outcome is an evolving echo and delay noise based on the original untreated samples input with periods of flat panning then left/right jumping and back to a conversation started but not finished an hour ago.  

    Avid Radiophrenia follower and contributor with a sonic background in limited DJing and performances undertaken in Edinburgh and Glasgow throughout the 00’s+teens at various ultimately doomed alternative/experimental club nights.  Keen street sound and ambience recorder to record the mundane world around us.  Now former keyboard player with Motherwell grounded bleakist indiepop band the Just Joans.  One half of Johns Indie Disco the experimental post ArabStrap/Mogwai/Spiritualized insular late night recording duo.  Main musical outlet is now often through the Ladywell Lout moniker and is working on the completion of the 3rd LWL album ‘Schemeadelic’ to complete the unknown trilogy.
