  • Craig Gell - Wave Machine

    15 November 2020 @ 1:00 am - 4:00 am

    more details

    Wave Machine translates real-time sea wave data, streamed from a marine observation buoy, into a continually evolving electronic soundscape. 

    A network of buoys dotted around the UK coast relay data to a freely accessible resource at channelcoast.org.

    Using Pure Data, the measurements such as wave height, speed and wave direction are programmed to control the parameters of sound – pitch, timbre, duration and position within the stereo field. Sea temperature is marked by a single modulating tone, with degrees Celsius transformed into oscillations per second. The buoy’s location sets the initial pitch giving each buoy its own distinct sound signature.

    Craig Gell is a composer and artist based in Folkestone. His recent work has been informed by the forces of nature and the natural environment.

    Wave Machine(2020) has exhibited at Folkestone and Ramsgate sound festivals, using data from their local buoys. 

    Craig also composes music and scores including the animated short films; Quarantine (2019) which aired on BBC4 and won Best Animated Short Film at London Short Film Festival, and Red Rover (2020) which was in part composed during a residency at the former home of Imogen Holst in Aldeburgh, care of the Britten-Pears Foundation and Wild Plum Arts.

  • Martin Eccles - Back Up The Long Wall: four midsummer dances for an imaginary island

    15 November 2020 @ 6:00 am - 10:00 am

    more details

    On the edge of the Cheviot Hills in north Northumberland (influenced by the work of John Cage) I used the 4:4 time signature of the rant, a traditional Northumberland folk dance to group 16 randomly identified sites into four ordered sets of four rants. From one site to the next, I sequentially walked the rants on one day in late June; I recorded my walking and, at each site, made a random duration recording of the place (including two inaccessible sites represented by periods of silence). Condensing and re-sequencing time this is four midsummer’s eve dances around an imaginary island.

    My practice reflects my experience of being in and walking through natural environments. I use sound and text to (re-)present time, distance, place and space of the landscape and to provide an opportunity for a listener to consider what it means to move through the landscape at a human pace and scale. From mono, stereo or quadrophonic recordings made whilst walking, I create sound works presented as multi-channel installations, sound walks and radio programs. Written or spoken transcribed notes made whilst walking provide the material for poems, often in the form of haiku, and other texts.

    East Lothian Gothic is a radio play about a TV series, also called East Lothian Gothic, which doesn’t exist. If it did exist, it would be a supernatural crime drama, set in East Lothian and beginning with the death of a curator who has moved up from London to Dunbar to escape the city. It sometimes contains goblins. The first three episodes broadcast here are a work in progress. 

    Timothea Armour is an artist and bartender living in Edinburgh. She is a current student on the MLitt Art Writing course at Glasgow School of Art.

    Alice Boyd and Laura Grace Simpkins – Germination (4:25)

    ‘Germination’ is a sound piece based on Simpkins’ essay of the same name, which explores the connection between taking medication and its consequences for the environment.
    Lithium carbonate, commonly used to manage bipolar disorder, is mined from salt flats and
    causes untold devastation to the surrounding environment. After seeing photographs of salt
    flats in Bolivia, Simpkins explores the tension between her need for medication and its
    environmental impact. Boyd responds to Simpkins’ narration with an electronic soundscape, communicating the eerie beauty of the salt flats, as well as their direct connection to Simpkins’ mental health.

    Alice Boyd is a composer and sound designer. She has produced the soundtracks for theatre
    shows which have toured to Latitude Festival, Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and beyond. Her

    In making Three Sweep Between, their new commission for Radiophrenia 2020, Roy Claire Potter and Kieron Piercy had meltdowns; it’s not an easy time to make work. They used a terraced house layout to build and inform their interrelated recording and writing process, which brings synthesised and manipulated sounds together with visual descriptions to reimagine a total shithole’s lost potential.

    Roy Claire Potter is an interdisciplinary artist mainly making written texts and performances. Kieron Piercy makes audio composition, improvisation and installation. Between them they have audio released by SubRosa, Chocolate Monk, FortEvilFruit, Harbinger Sound and Porta.

    Wild Tracks are the sounds collected outside the frame in film making, when the
    cameras aren’t rolling – non-synchronous sounds that give context to what we see. Wild Tracks Radio are a group of young artists who have been working remotely with composer and sound editor Richy Carey since the start of lockdown to create their own sci-fi radio plays, using only their phones as recording devices. Here we present two episodes of our plays, Water Walkers and Under Okta in Peril, with an introduction by the artists to some of the themes and the creative processes involved in their works.

    1. Giorgiana Violante – Fear’s Heartbeat

    “Never fight fear head-on. That rot about pulling yourself together, and the harder you pull the worst it gets. Let it in and look at it. What shape is it? What colour? Let it wash through you. Move back and hang on. Pretend it isn’t there. Get trivial.”  – William Burroughs, The Western Lands. 

    Giorgiana Violante used to make low fi music under the name Mitten, releasing a number of failed albums via Angular Records and even smaller record companies. Proudest moment, the review that ended up as the slogan on every future gig poster:”I’d rather use a cheese grater on my knob than ever listen to Mitten again”. But that was 15 years ago, now deeply inactive on every level this sound piece was recorded as a one off. It’s called ‘Fear’s Heartbeat’.

     3. Leah Reid – Reverie

    Reverie is an acousmatic composition that leads the listener through an immersive fantasy centered around deconstructed music boxes. The work is comprised of eight sections that alternate between explorations of the music boxes’ gears and chimes. In the work, the music boxes’ sounds are pulled apart, exaggerated, expanded, and combined with other sounds whose timbres and textures are reminiscent of the original. As the piece unfolds, the timbres increase in spectral and textural density, and the associations become more and more fantastical. Gears are transformedinto zippers, coins, chainsaws, motorcycles, and fireworks, and the chimes morph into rainstorms, all sizes of bells, pianos, andmore. 

    Leah Reid is a composer of acoustic and electroacoustic music. Her primary research interests involve the perception, modeling, and compositional applications of timbre. In her works, timbre acts as a catalyst for exploring new soundscapes, time, space, perception,and color. In recent reviews, Reid’s works have been described as“immersive,” “haunting,” and “shimmering.” Her works are frequently performed throughout Europe and North America. Reid received her D.M.A. and M.A. in music composition from Stanford University and her B.Mus from McGill University. She is currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Virginia. Additional information may be found at http://www.leahreidmusic.com

    4.     Fabian Zuniga – Metro Barcelona

    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.     Elina Bry – We Will Survive Together

    “We will survive together“ is a performance that involves working towards body empowerment, inspired by Jazzercise routines as well as nights out and Karaoke gone wrong. The routines will get you through the day, and inspire you to embrace you inner Judy Shepard back from outer space or on a green field back in 98”.

    ElinaBry is French/Finnish, Glasgow based multidisciplinary artist. She works across video, storytelling and live performance, and is interested at listening to and re-staging the malfunctions of the human body. She is curious about the body as a sentient arena; as a responsive tool and as a protagonist of an everyday drama. By that, she investigates the known, model it and work in collaboration with the instability of her body. It is essential that she doesn’t cause any harm as she want to challenge her body with the everyday, in order to give a stage and witness what is already there.

     

  • Horse Whisperer & Anna Danielewicz - you would sound much more convincing if you spoke as if you cared

    15 November 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm

    ‘you would sound much more convincing if you spoke as if you cared’ is an anarchic anti-adaptation/vandalism of Ayn Rand’s novel ‘The Fountainhead’ – staging (in irreverent fashion) a reinterpretation of this text mainly based on online synopses and secondary material (neither of us bothered reading it). Mixing real with fictional / serious with comic /improvised with scripted – join us for an ill advised jaunt over dubious ground. 

    Anna Danielewicz (b. Koszalin, 1991) is an artist and writer based in Glasgow. Coming from a background in performance, her practice is now rooted mostly in writing and the workshop format. Her most recent projects include Lip, Belly, Foot at the Scottish Sculpture Workshop and Voun Town at the Edinburgh Art Festival. Anna is a member of the programming committee of Market Gallery. She is currently working on a prose fiction project to do with the language of teenagers, and the problem of translation.

    Max Syedtollan (b. London, 1994) is an artist-composer based in Glasgow, often working under the moniker ‘Horse Whisperer’. In 2019 he was selected as one of Sound and Music’s ‘New Voices’ and exhibited work in the Venice Biennale, as well as releasing his second album of DIY chamber music on Glasgow label GLARC (supported by the Arts Council). His pieces have been broadcast on BBC Radios 4 and 6, and performed at institutions such as Cafe Oto and Snape Maltings. In 2020/21 he is working with Plus Minus Ensemble on a new text/music piece.

    more details

    The early 1940’s. Several unconnected people from various locations disappear. They somehow became stuck in a radio field. Since then, the inhabitants of this interference space have had to readjust their social behaviours, re-evaluate their ethics, find a way to live despite disembodiment. Cultural practices have mutated within the magnetic field, including those of burial and remembrance for the dead. During short wave radio explorations, Double Goocher Shop unintentionally captured EVP interactions with these inhabitants. The stereophonic artefact produced by the duo for Radiophrenia explores an anthropological hoax via the metaphysical features of spherics, veering voltages, static electromagnetism, and ghost voice hunting.

    more details

    “When is the first time you realized you were Black?” 

    I asked forty different Black people this one question. Through this project, I aim to give a platform for the voices that we often do not get to hear. Being Black is certainly not easy—our history, which continues to unfold, exemplifies thec hallenges of being Black in Amerika.  I hope that listeners find similarities within their own stories, or become more aware of what life is like for many marginalized groups.

    Azya Lashelle is a Black artist who was born and raised in Ypsilanti, Michigan. She currently lives in Atlanta, Georgia where she is attending Georgia State University and pursuing her masters in photography. A lot of Lashelle’s work centers around Black identity and the notion of being “Blue Black.” She is inquisitive about race and racism and the effects that it has on the human psyche. Through her art Lashelle aims to speak out on the issues that she observes happening in Amerika. 

     

  • Doriane Souilhol and Isotta Trastevere - Noir ne sait parler (black can't speak)

    15 November 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 4:30 pm

    more details

    Variations from Noir by Chistophe Tarkos.

    Christophe Tarkos’s writing sends us back to a fluctuating musicality. Sometimes the words are linked without allowing us to grasp the link that holds them, sometimes we find the thread, by resonances to plunge into the heart of black. From its materiality, its obscure qualities, one learns gropingly, hollow to draw its outlines over the words. The text is manipulated, sliced, hollowed out. The voice is multiple, repetitive, enveloping. The sounds are reduced to the essential down to white noise. Sounds transcribe the cadence of the voice and create a world of shadows around it.
    Christophe Tarkos (1963-2004) is a French poet and performer. He works around the materiality of language.
    Doriane Souilhol (b. 1981) lives and works in Marseille. She is conducting research around
    the notion of desire, attempting to approach the way in which it “takes shape” at the origin
    in the process of thought, dream, creation … This occurs into a careful exploration of the materiality of image and language. Her proposals are shaped into installations, sculptures, videos, images and editorial projects. Her recent works open up to the practice of performance which involves voice and sounds.

    Isotta Trastevere Composer. Graduated in electroacoustic composition from the Pierre Barbizet Conservatory in Marseille. She is interested in music composed with a certain economy of materials, such as minimalist music, and focused on the silence. Her acousmatic pieces are performed in France (Festival Futura) and abroad (MusLab). With a collective of artists, she has founded Radio Nunc, an independent web radio for sound creation.

    more details

    Kaivajaiset is a radiophonic piece of sound art that includes excerpts of an interview. The word doesn’t really exist in Finnish, but it more or less means an event where people dig with shovels. The name is derived from an English group called The Diggers (True Levellers) who attempted to farm on common land and published a well-known pamphlet in 1649. It also refers to Michel Foucault’s reinterpretation of the notion genealogy. Kaivajaiset is a cartoonish tragicomedy that touches upon the nature of opinion pieces, algorithms as use of power and the relations of media, capital andpower.

    Niko-Matti Ahti (b.1976) is a dilettante based in Turku, Finland, working with sound art, music, translation and installations. Ahti began making music in 1993 and has been apart of groups like Avarus, Kemialliset ystävät and Kiila. For the past years his main interest has been in sound art.

    Sylvan Sounds is an exploration into the hidden and unnoticed sounds made by trees. The forest landscape is considered from alternative audio perspectives such as from inside trees and beneath the ground. Liz K Miller guides the listener through her journey into sylvan soundscapes asking questions such as,what can listening to trees reveal, and where do the sounds of trees fit into the study of soundscape ecology? This audio work is informed by Liz’s research into ways of reconnecting with forest landscapes in the uncertain and rapidly changing time of the Anthropocene.

    Liz K Miller is a London-based artist and printmaker. She graduated from Edinburgh College of Art (BA), Camberwell College of Art(MA), and was a print fellow at the Royal Academy Schools (2013 to 2016).In 2018 she was awarded an AHRC TECHNE scholarship to study a practice-based PhD at the Royal College of Art. Her research considers how listening to the sounds made by trees can reconnect humans to the forest in this current time of climate and ecological breakdown, and how the combination of audio and visual can be used to enhance that connection.

    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.

    1. Marcelo Armani –  Welcome to A Strange Properties 

    This piece is the result of an experience that I often perform in mystudio / studio. It consists of inserting directional microphones in theexternal area of my house and thus capturing in real time the soundscape thatoccurs at that moment. I use this landscape as a basis for composing a dialogue between different sound narratives that cross, complement and overlap the layer of this acoustic landscape. We add mass collages produced by digital and analog audio syntheses, samplers, fragments, textures and intentions that build multilayers in a slow displacement, sometimes abrupt and rough.

    Marcelo Armani is a sound artist, electroacoustic composer and sound professional in the cinematographic and theater projects. As an artist and researcher,he relates to different listening situations. In contemporary artistic production, he moves through in intersection with Conceptual Art,Situationism, Expressionism, Ready Made, Electroacoustic processes and Concretemusic. His production is centered on the composition of pieces and sound installations based on the capture of the soundscape and the composition by synthesis and digital / analog expressions using software, synthesizers and tape recorder. He has participated in exhibitions, residences, festivals and edited materials in Latin America, Europe and Mexico.

    2. Ivor Kallin – Sangs of Bute, Eh? R_09_0106

    From a collection of 51 improvised’ songs’ on the piano, (which I can’t play). They were recorded in a cottage on Bute, which just happened to have a piano, and I’d brought my voice with me.

    3. Thomas Finbarr –  Hot Planet  

    Hot Planet is a sound piece created from the moulding and manipulation of recordings made by the composer of ice melting. Based loosely on the theme of a warming climate, it tries to convey the relentlessness of the changes to the planet as a result of the increased global temperatures, and both the small and not so small consequences of this.

     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.          

    3. Sweaetshops – An Introdoctrination to We Eagerly Await Your Complete Submission

    Have you got X? That certain “something”?Have you been biding “your time”? Do you just want to be “up there”? You know you do. You have always known. We have always known and in all ways known. Your dreams. Your deepest desires. Your moment. We are here to take you there on the next step.

    We Eagerly Await Your Complete Submission is an ongoing multidisciplinary work about the parallels between the rhetoric of religious cults and reality TV.  Created from a mixture of audition tapes,self-help cassettes and show business jargon.

     Sweætshops® is a multipersonality“conglomerate” and multidisciplinary artist, whose practise is focused on creating allegory out of the waste of 21st century capitalism using sound and performance. Their name is a portmanteau of the two extremes of our currentera. They hold a sonic arts MMus, are the 2019 recipient of the BUZZCUT  Emerging Artist Award and have been both banned from the Edinburgh Fringe and simultaneously legally married/divorced for Brexit. They have played various festivals including Listen Again and Meadows Festival. Their work has also beenfeatured on compilations by various labels including Violet Comet and DeadHound Records.

  • Trihn Lo - Drama ohne Worte

    Drama ohne Worte

    for My Mother
    Vocals: Marie-Dominique Greco
    Voice: Patrizia Pivetti
    Cello: Brigitte Patricia Mirailles

    Violin & electronics: Trihn Lo

    ©Trihn Lo september 2020

    Drama ohne Worte is essentially built on an asemantic vocality. The only perceptible lexemes or syntagms “silence, it’s now, mouche, chute, zusammen” announce or recall a dramatic descent into the horror of a contemporary Hades, among modern Mourners and Sirens/Fates. A catabasis or a nostos in the realm of the dead and shadows in pain because they are unburieds, in a sort of inverted myth, not like a new Orpheus in search of Eurydice, but like a Persephone in search of her dead mother, in the sign of a return to the origins.
    Poet, composer, visual artist and free improviser, Trihn Lo is currently working on interdisciplinary projects mixing instrumental and electronic music. The relationship between sounds and images, capable of producing an asynchronous audiovisual rhythm far from the most immediate synaesthesia, in a minimalist, experimental or more narrative approach, is today one of the main axes of her artistic work. Among her latest videos, Hétérotopies, presented in world premiere at the Futura Festival (France), and SIT TIBI TERRA LEVIS for the Ciclo des Mujeres Compositoras (Chile). Her works has been featured on new French and international music radio programs and platforms.

    Giorgio Dursi is a sound-assemblagist and studio-performer. Born in Italy is now based in Berlin. He has fashioned an artistic practice where the familiarity of commonplace objects and voices fuse and contort into completely unexpected avenues of sound experience. (Kraak) Only with the help of simple percussions, everyday and found objects and his own voice, Giorgio Dursi introduces us to his colorful and shapeless universe of concrete physical sounds, spare phrases, lonely words and calembouristic vocalizations.

  • Lauren Gilmour - Breathe In

    15 November 2020 @ 9:40 pm - 10:00 pm

    more details

    ’Breathe In’ is a short form, spoken word soundscape. It explores how we express ourselves internally and externally when we are under pressure and highlights how polarising these experiences can be; we might say very little but feel an overwhelming reaction inside. The sonic world of ‘Breathe In’ uses the human voice to represent the inside of my brain; how it processes information, uncomfortable questions and harboured feelings in the confines of a therapist’s office. I am fascinated by the interplay betweenour internal and external dialogue and how it can result in physical manifestations of distraction, panic or anxiety.

    Lauren Gilmour is a producer and sound designer from Glasgow. After graduating from her Commercial Music degree with a First, she established Novasound studio; Scotland’s only female-run recording studio. As a composer and sound designer, Lauren’s experience ranges from theatre (National Theatre ofScotland, Stellar Quines, Birds of Paradise, Imaginate) to film and commercial media (Greenlight Creative, Fittings (Liverpool), Tidy Carnage). Lauren has just completed her Master’s in Sound Design and Audiovisual Practice at theUniversity of Glasgow. The course has inspired her to follow her fascination with the human voice by creating experimental soundscape work that centres around it.

    2. Martha Riva Palacio – To wake with the lover: soundscape for Sei Shônagon

    This sound art piece is inspired in the entry 69 of Sei Shônagon’s The Pillow Book: Summer provides the most delightful setting for a secret assignation (Encontrarse con el amante -Meeting with the lover- in the Spanish version). It was built from the digital mix of bees and crickets in different frequencies. The morning sounds progressively acquire more definition, noise flows into silence.

    Mexican sound artist and author based in Mexico City. She’s part of the art, literature and science collective Cúmulo de Tesla and has presented her sound pieces in places such as the Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and the Centre of Complexity Studies at the UNAM, the Soundasaurus Festival, The Border Project at the Art Museum of the University of Arizona, The FKL International Symposium on Soundscapes and the WFAE world conferences among others.

    3.Mykadelica– Distressed Beats  

    A completely beatless experimentation with sound, cut up to loosely soundlike beat hits. It is also only 3 minutes long (a conscious decision, as the  ‘classic’ pop song tends to be around the 3 minute mark). It is influenced by the hip-hop beats and instrumentals that have been very popular over the lastdecades, but come at from the angle of a sound artist.

    4. Vincent Eoppolo – Temptation of St Andrews  

    Awork inspired by the writings of Saint Athanasios regarding the temptationsthat Saint Anthony the Great experienced while living in his mountain cave inEgypt.

    My works are a synthesis of various sound art traditions such asmusique concrete, acousmatic music, electro-acoustic music and radio art.  My works have been presented at the New YorkCity Electro-Acoustic Music Festival, the Bushwick Open Studio Festival inBrooklyn , Utopie Sonore in Nantes, France and De Natura Sonorum in Rome,Italy. Many of my compositions have been featured on radio programs inScotland, France, Italy, Canada, Ireland and the USA.

    5. Robert McLure – viscera                                     

    A single-source monophonic fixed media work that utilizes sounds from a no-input mixer. The  mixer wrenches and  howls  as if it were being torn apart from the inside.  

    Robert McClure’s music attempts to discover beauty in unconventional places using non-traditional means. His work has been featured at festivals including NYCEMF, Beijing Modern Music Festival, ISCM, TIES, SEAMUS, and ICMC.His works may be found through ADJ·ective New Music, Bachovich MusicPublications, Resolute Music Publications, and Tapspace Publications as well ason ABLAZE, Albany, and New Focus Record labels.

     6.BellArtLabs  – Shed Rain Wind   

    This work was recorded over a week of rain and wind of varying intensities which produced unusual elements within the mix. You know you’re in a shed listening to the rain and wind masking out other sounds, but creating new ones, over whole a subtle dissonance exists with the sounds located at the acoustic horizon that sneak into the near field of the shed. You would imagine it would be a relaxing sound, it is, but stuff keeps happening.

    BellArtLabs is an independent multidisciplinary art group whose aim is to foster collaboration between its artist members: Chris Mizsak, Tom Scott, Tony Scott and Colin Dewar. We create experimental, time-based art in moving image (digital video and analogue film), sound, text, installation and live performance. Concepts are developed through a process of individual and collaborative research. Thematically, our work explores the transient nature of time through landscapes and memory. Narrative stories are woven in to create artworks that are thought provoking and accessible.

  • Dead Slow - Hurt Wires

    15 November 2020 @ 11:00 pm - 12:00 am

    more details

    Hurt Wires is the sound of a radio bought in 1956, abandoned to rust in 1971, and salvaged in 2071. When plugged in and revived, 100 years after it received its last transmission, it emits sound sporadically for an hour before breaking down for good. The sounds that passed through its wires have imprinted themselves like memories. As the radio wakes, surges of electricity jolt it into consciousness. As it attempts to express the bewilderment and hurt it feels after being abandoned for so long, it replays sounds that have passed through it: sometimes heartfelt and sweet, sometimes abrasive and toxic.

    Dead Slow is sporadic radio show on Subcity run by adam forbes, sporadic musician & dj
