    “I don’t wantto do anything but look, listen and smell! What else is there to do?” Areimagining of my 2016, The Svelte, this Leonard Nimoy reading of RayBradbury’sThe Veldt drives home one a maxim: Stop mechanizing the humancondition or you and/or yours will implode while your fucking world dissolves.But have you recently attempted to remove a crucial piece of joy from anyone’slife for more than an hour? Titles courtesy of cipher artist Lori Wike (excepttrack three which is subtitled: “Radiophrenia crew, I hope you find this funand not pandering.”)

     Dave Madden’s (aka Tulpamancers, nonnon,dj_webern) earliest memories are Magical Mystery Tourand the guy who claimed tobe the Lizard King. Madden uses percussion, found objects, turntables andsynthesis to create new sonic environments based on foggy memories ofwarehouses, rituals, subterranean boogeymen, submarines and other heterotopia,melatonin dreams et al.; build it, and it really did happen. Madden’s currentdirection moves through Tudor’s rain forests with a backpack stocked with HughDavies’ contact mics, lost Stockhausen tape loops, Crank Sturgeon’s attitude,and three quarters of a Buchla that needs some repairs.

     

  • Steve Ashby and Vicki Hallett - The Unsettling Knot

    19 November 2020 @ 1:00 am - 2:00 am

    more details

    The Unsettling Knot is an inquiry into the looming question of “what’s next?” as society wades
    through the evolving trajectory and intermingling of possibilities presented to us by the outbreak of covid-19. The work develops from an interpretation of the coronavirus RNA sequence as it is allowed to mutate through a combination of stochastic and chaotic processes. With each moment, The Unsettling Knot positions itself between an uncertain future and the myriad approaches undertaken by communities to find a way forward.

    Steve Ashby is a musician, composer, and sound artist based in the United States. Ashby work

    focuses on sound found in the natural and digital world to discover places of intersection which engage in the art of listening.
    Vicki Hallett is a composer, musician, sound artist, music practitioner and educator based in
    Australia. Her compositional process explores the space between hearing music as a cultural
    experience and the aural vibration within the being.

     

  • Austin Larkin - Shape

    19 November 2020 @ 2:00 am - 4:00 am

    more details

    “Shape” is a single shortwave frequency (7105.8 khz) recorded for two hours in September, from 9pm to 11pm EST. During this time, the frequency carried a densely harmonic and inharmonic spectra, its modulations and distortions affected by the ionosphere, electromagnetic emissions, solar radiation, and other ephemera. The recording was then edited with segments of the two hour recording being woven back into itself without fades; a construction in which duration can be heard as topos, the assemblage as an auscultation of the duration. When heard as transmission, this braid of harmonics, noise, and distortions form a dyad with the duration of transmission and its inherent radio phenomena.

    Austin Larkin is a composer focusing on relations of sound, time, space, performance, and installation. His work involves the violin, tuned resonant materials, diffusion/diffraction. He has presented his work at festivals including Corridor, Umbral, and Yellowfish, and has performed throughout North America, South America, and Asia. He currently lives on the traditional lands of the Quinnipiac in what is now known as New Haven, CT.

    Mark VernonUndeformed Stratigraphic Sequences

    Description:

    A soundscape composed of recent tracks, forthcomingreleases, found tapes, unreleased material and field recordings made in outdoormarkets around the world including Bangkok, Colombo, Evora, Lisbon,Sant-Jean-de-Luz, Santiago, Valdivia and Vienna.

    Biography:

    Mark Vernon is a Glasgow based sound artist whosecurrent work is focused on concepts of audio archaeology, magnetic memory andnostalgia. At the core of his practice lies a fascination with acousmaticpresence, environmental sound, obsolete media and the reappropriation of foundsounds. A rich collection of domestic tape recordings; audio letters, dictatednotes, answer-phone messages and other lost voices often find their way intohis unorthodox soundworlds. These diverse elements are distilled into radiophoniccompositions for broadcast, multi-channel diffusion, fixed media and liveperformances.

  • Axel Gomo - Rear Window vol 2

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

    more details

    “Each impro starts more or less from a field recording from my rear window in a small courtyard in the northern area from Paris Montmartre. During the springtime 2020, two young girls from our neighborhood were regularly playing together. I begun to record them from our flat on the fourth floor. listening to nothing else than their small talks and a natural reverb. The girls were happy, their noisy children’s games was a bit of fresh air… One day a deranged man from the building next shouted at them, saying it was against the law and we should all be ‘locked down’. He called the police, who came, but did nothing. Since this incident the girls have been too scared to play in our courtyard, to our regret. From these recording sessions came 7 volumes of ‘Rear Window series’.

    1. Christian Banasik –  Letzte Gebarde offener Munder

    Poems written by Michael Wuestefeld (contemporary German writer) from his book “Stadtplan” (1990) provide the poetic and tonal basis of this piece. The texts, written between 1986 and 1987 in East Germany describe numerous subjective situations, feelings and thoughts from the view of a townsman. The poems have been recorded with a female and a male voice, which both speak and whisper. After the preparations I was able to work with some variations, loops and transformation of the texts. The timber of the different voices belongs to one of the planes which structure the piece. Furthermore, I developed a text analysis form for the written words consisting of seven groups of phonemes. These groups, combined with algorithmic models, control the form of the piece and every single sound object. Using an self-designed application in MAX, I was able to work with the different combinations of numbers which have been used for musical parameters such as material, duration, rhythm, stereophonic position and density. The semantic characteristic of the text objects depends on real-time calculations that, from time to time, create something like a new synthetic language or atomic word cells. With time-stretching methods I extended central words of the poems many times longer than their original length and formed new harmonic spectra and “singing” tonal characteristics.

    Spoken words, guitar, sewing machine by Philip Lenglet. Voice and composition, Marjorie Van Halteren.

    3. Iride Project – Disagio del Silenzio Imperfetto   

    Sleeplessness and drowsiness grasp a man since his childhood. Only when he travels he feels alive and attentive. But growing old, his life seems a mere break between naps. When somebody associates his sleep with death, he sees the reason of his dozing. In his early days the death of his father and breaking of war had left him defenseless and ignored by others.
    Sleep helps him find a way to elude shocking events. Finally, he gets in control and leave for the real destination of his existence. It is not too late. Text by Monica Miuccio adapted and interpreted by Bernard Clarke

    Massimo Davi & Monica Miuccio is a performing duo and an exciting research into non-deterministic electro-acoustic music and sound-emphasis poetry. They explore the sound through conventional and unconventional instruments, piezoelectric transducers, field recordings, electronics, voice/spoken word and an analogue modular synthesizer.

    https://irideproject.bandcamp.com/      

    4. Ilario Boffa & Pete Swinton & The Oxford Ambient Collective –  Prehension

    Inspired by ‘The Companion Species Manifesto’ by Donna J.Haraway, the piece is a reflection on the philosophical meaning of Prehension. Prehension is not only the act of grasping or seizing, but also identifies the interaction of a subject with an entity or an event (sustainability) which involves perception and not necessarily cognition.

    7. Sweaetshops – An Introdoctrination to We Eagerly Await Your Complete Submission 2

    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.

    The work arises as a result of a concern that I had in my head, and that deepened after the Pandemic – The Nature of Human Insanity … Or not?

    This concern was transferred to a call for Sound material. I decided to put together a call for soundmaterial through facebook and other pages (International). Within the material he asked for,everything included: Noise, melodies, recorded texts, etc. The idea was to put together with all thismaterial, a work with a shape and aesthetic that would go off in my mind, withthe material that I was listening to and processing of the shipments.

  • Radio Kapital - Kapital Gains Day 4 D I D (Hania Piosik)

    19 November 2020 @ 11:00 am - 11:30 am

    Kapitał Gains is a daily radio programme showcasing live performances by Polish and German sound and radio artists, curated and hosted by Knut Aufermann. Every day at noon CET (11am GMT) from 16th to 22nd of November 2020 a roster of acclaimed noise makers will present solo or duo concerts from their homes live for the radio audience. Today it is the turn of Hania Piosik, vocalist and electronics enchantress from Gorzow.

    The second half of the show is dedicated to works from the international radio art network Radia.Kapitał Gains is a project by Goethe Institut and Radio Kapitał in Warsaw, with partner broadcasts on ∏-node in Paris and Radiophrenia in Glasgow.

    Artist biog:
    D I D (Hania Piosik) – more than 10 years collaborating with artists of various music and art genres. Her main passion is searching for sound anomalies that influence the passing time (one of such is her latest experimental LP “Life is a ping pong delay” released by Gusstaff Records). During peculiar live acts, her main mission is to re-enact the sense of security in attendees (upcoming: END OF XIBALBA LP/ 2020). Problematic for some might be the fact, that this journey is supported by improvised vocal tales led in commonly unknown language… But what if strict definitions of words sometimes hold us back from understanding the core meaning and intention?

  • Nina Queissner - Sound Ecology Part 4

    19 November 2020 @ 11:30 am - 11:45 am

    more details

    I was born in Germany and moved to France six years ago. I first studied humanities. After
    volunteering for several months at a local and non-commercial radio (l’Eko des Garrigues) I
    decided to shift to Fine Arts and integrated the Conservatory’s electro-acoustic music class
    to concentrate on music and sound within the field of Art. I graduated in 2019 from the
    Higher National Academy for Fine Arts in Bourges (ENSA) and in 2020 from the International
    Post-Graduate Program in Arts in Sound in Ghent, Belgium @ KASK/Conservatorium

    (EPAS). I am currently living and working in France.


    My artistic work is based on the exploration of the esthetic experience of sound and music.
    I use the technique of Field Recording and produce sound and video installations and
    performances. I frequently contribute my compositions and recordings to radio and cinema
    projects. Sometimes I work as a sound engineer for events such as concerts, theater shows
    or radio programs. Currently I am working with an environmental biologist with whom we
    founded the Observatory of the Hole in Deep Time that aims to analyze the links between
    Sound and Biodiversity in the Anthropocene era.

    Revisiting a shared archive of recorded sounds, it, still is a patchwork of edited, processed and resampled material. Listening for small sounds and moments of intimacy, the work explores the potential of previously disregarded recordings to form new relationships.

    soft tissue is a collaboration between Glasgow-based artists Feronia Wennborg and Simon Weins. Working with DIY electronics, domestic recordings and digital feedback, the duo plays within networks of lo-fi amplification, blurring the boundaries between initiated and environmental sounds. 

    Recent projects include a self-titled tape release on London-based label Penultimate Press (2019), a commissioned audio-visual piece for West Den Haag, Leaks (2020), and a residency at CCA Creative Lab through AC Projects (2020).

     

  • Distant Animals - Pessoa

    19 November 2020 @ 12:30 pm - 1:00 pm

    more details

    A sonic exploration of the writing of Fernando Pessoa, the work attempts to capture the absurd gravitas of thewriters day-to-day interactions with his community. Drawing upon the author’s fascination with boredom and non-linear structures, the work employs subtle, perpetual evolution in order to capture some of the same clarity (or perhapslack of clarity) inherent to Pessoa’s own work. Created upon a modular synthesiser, sections of ‘The Book of Disquiet’ were used as instructions bywhich to augment simple arrangements of filtered noise, with band-pass resonant filters drawing out new musical tonalities from the otherwise formless soundscape.

    Daniel Alexander Hignell is a composer and performance artist working in the South-East of England. He holds a PhD in Musical Compositionfrom Sussex University, and has taught composition at several leading universities across the UK. He has released works on labels such as HallowGround and Nomad Exquisite. His work encapsulates electronic and avant-gardeclassical compositional approaches, building upon often complex contextual andconceptual foundations to construct rich, emotive soundscapes that draw from classical traditions, as well as drone, electronic and sound-art disciplines.

    Tenere Lontano is the current duoformed by members from Real No Real and Unlocked Youth. Influenced by avantmusic and 1980’s cassette culture, this project is a celebration of theamateur.

    Regardez is the result of numerous trial and error experiments where chance andrandomness, along with the selection process, play a leading role. Composedthrough a rearrangement of broken records, this piece plays with thespontaneous creation of loops derived from a skipping needle. The result waslater fused with various synthesizer sounds to create a warm radiophonic feel.

     Tenere Lontano are Pablo Mirón andJuan Vacas from RNR and Unlocked Youth.

    7.  India Boxall – Silts

    Siltsis comprised of layers that have been recorded on a smartphone. The layersinclude a recording of a meditative vocal exercise sung in a public bathroom;an industrial drill on a building site; a windy walk to work; and other sonicsnippets of disjointed urban-ism.

    The recordings have been drawn out, splintered, and modified to makethem echo, inducing a sonic interplay between an inner and outer selfnavigating through a stagnation or inertia that has been imposed by the builtenvironment. Silts seeks to frolic in the subconscious, threadingremedial and contemplative sounds together. 

    I am a creative researcher and dogmother living in Glasgow.
    I have a particular focus on spiritual ecology and eco-feminist practices asreparative modalities for states of stagnation and inertia. I like to situatemyself-as-creative-researcher within the axis of language and rhetoric, asking:how do things come to be, why, and for whom?

  • Gabi Schaffner - Time is a Sliding Door

    19 November 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 3:45 pm

    more details

    Time is a sliding door –  but if so, what does it mean?

    “Time is a Sliding Door” is a variation of Ralph Waldo Emerson’s saying that “Reality is a Sliding Door”. As if that wasn’t tricky enough, substituting ‘reality’ with the noun ‘time’ unravels a kaleidoscope of meanings and implications that turns the ground of our presumptuous existence into a wobbly pudding. If Time is a Sliding Door, and we push it aside, what happens beyond the threshold? The act of sliding means that the other side is only slowly revealed. As well as with a thud, thunder and roll. As radio is a medium which transgresses our notion of time and space, both naturally and effortlessly, how does it come into the picture? If the door opens onto a 5th dimension, and/or still others, how could this be ‘enlistened’ into a radiophonic scape? To be honest, the author of these lines doesn’t actually know, and how could she?

    As humans we continue to be tethered to time as a condition of our communication, our perception, our being. It just seemed fit to start with a speedy panorama of the “Swabian-Alemannic Fasnet”. Fasnet (or “Fastnacht”) is also called the “fifth season of the year”, and is recorded in central Europe at least since the 13th century. Its presentation of an inverted world, the parades of Jesters, Fools and Witches, the almost deafening onrush of drums, ‘Fools Cries’, trombones, trumpets and bells truly create a different time horizon.Other acoustic inhabitants of this composition are the cuckoo-clock and clocks in general, as this region of Germany is famous for its clock-makers since the 17th century. And after all, it is not just the shamans of the Northern Tunguska who believe that the cuckoo’s call presages the number of years one has left to live…

     Time is a Sliding Door sticks to the human dimension, playing with the acts of acceleration and deceleration, with the notion of journeying (we shall be travelling from the Black Forest to New Mexico and from there to Slovenia – at least), spellbound by folk tunes, with the whisperings of shortwaves captured in open and discreet places. Hidden stories keep on drifting through radio space, sites and signals keep travelling, and wherever they may go, eventually an alien molecule, touched by radio might spark off the impulse for that door to open up into the unforeseeable. Meanwhile, we’ll keep hanging around this auditory doorstep.

    Gabi Schaffner works as a trans-disciplinary artist within the realms of radio art, composition and performance. Her artistic practice is determined by the methods of poetic ethnography in connection with fluxus-like mise-en-scènes, radio-making and sound art performances. Much of her work originates from journeys. Next to her radiophonic productions, Schaffner creates speculative musical genres and inserts them into music history in order to raise awareness for cultural, gender-related and/or geographical conditions.

    Schaffner has been realising award-winning productions with Deutschlandfunk Kultur, radia.fm, Hessian Cultural Radio and ABC Australia. Since 2012 she maintains “Datscha Radio”, a nomadic transmission project that links the medium of radio to current ecological issues.

    As a writer and translator, she has published numerous texts; most recently: “Revolten Diaries”, in: Radio Revolten, 2019. She holds a MA in literature and ethnography and a diploma in visual communication. Gabi Schaffner lives in Berlin.

    Giles Perring – World Organ Intervention 4 featuring Kirsty Law (5:30)


    WORLD ORGAN ‘Interventions’

    This is a series of songs and improvisations delivered by remote collaborators in conjunction with Giles Perring’s sound installation on Jura, the World Organ. The pieces are assembled in different ways that reflect the various listening experiences of the players, and the colours of the sound that the organ ‘hears’.

    Alongside Giles Perring, on Jura, the performers are

    Melanie Pappenheim, Kennington, London. ’Two Corbies’
    Kirsty Law, Edinburgh, ‘My Heart Is Sair’ [Robert Burns arr. Law]
    Susie Honeyman, Edinburgh, ‘Over the Sound’
    Albert Kuvezin, Kyzyl, Tuva ‘Talking to Spirits’
    Ivor Kallin, Clapton, London, ‘Trumpton Fire Brigade’
    Rob Mills, Swanage, ‘The Ministry of Wind’

    Giles and Ivor have played in various improvising bands together, notably Ya Basta and power trio The Scheidt. Rob Mills and Susie Honeyman are both long standing colleagues of Giles from their work together in the sonic sculpture group Echo City. Giles produced Albert Kuvezin & Yat Kha’s number one World Music album ‘Poets and Lighthouses’ on Jura in 2010. Giles first performed with Melanie Pappenheim in the vocal big band The Shout. They have since made a number of music and sound works for radio and theatre together. Giles works with Kirsty Law on recordings and cross-media projects having first collaborated together with Stornoway story teller Ian Stephen.

  • Eothen Stearn - Sentient

    19 November 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 6:30 pm

    more details

    A person is jogging around a burial mound, near to a standing stone circle. They run, using their phone to navigate over tombs and rocks passing inscriptions and woodland. 
    They spot a naked woman floating in the river. Her body is creating an interference….

    Sentient, a new commissioned work that ruminates on someone being on the same patch of land 12,000 years apart. 

    It’s narrative is circular and the score possesses a state of slippage; from neolithic quasi-time travel, to AI and other fluid immaterial states. 

    Eo has written specific new drum rhythms for this commission and has produced sounds with her voice, limbs and musical apparatus.

    The drums, percussion, choral chanting and broken narrative represent the past.
    The synths, looped stems, field recordings and other instrumentation, present day.  

    There is a spiritual dimension, which is a continuation of Eo’s research on musical lamentations and Gregorian Chants. 
    Alongside this sober state, there is also a playfulness and strong emphasis on the power of an imagination.

    Recorded by Eothen Stearn. Additional recording and mix by Chris White.

    Eothen Stearn is an interdisciplinary artist living in Glasgow, playing in bands NIGHTSHIFT, 2PLY and DIFFICULT.

  • Leo Magnien - aussi vague que le vent

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

    more details

    Sounds in this piece were taped in afew days of revisiting places bound together by the imagination and memory ofthe recording listener.

    The sonic space of each place isconsidered as a filter through which anthropic sounds are reappropriable andshape new contours in landscapes.

    leo magnien has been working with sounds for more than a decade. During night shifts in a radio station, he discovered the poetic nature ofacousmatic sound and transmission.
    He has since developed a practice of listening that results in the use ofphonography as a basis of all his works.  His focus is on the subtle variations, the tenuous perceptions, and how topresent these to the listener.  He lives in a natural zone in northern france.

    more details

    Fossilised Frequencies is a radio voyage into the hearts and hertz of people and land. Morphing, sculpting and warping sound to create an acoustic poem to a motherland. The content is a combination of field recordings, archival sounds and music all collected from Iraq.
    Urban Feral is an Iraqi British sound artist based in Glasgow. Their work is heavily informed by Sufi theory of frequency as healing vibrations. The artist manipulates and sculpts sound as a medium into trance and mediative practice, as well as using the creative process as a diasporic exercise to reconnect with their Iraqi lineage.

    2. 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.

    3. Adam Winnie – Toy Radio Dropped from 2nd Story

    These auditory sculptures are born out of experimentation, they are not considered music and are not structured as such. I’m interested in the creation sounds which have never been heard by the human ear but which possess power to captivate and hypnotize while gnawing at the skull. They best way to experience them is by limiting all other senses. In constructing these experiments in developing new auditory experiences I utilize both digital and analog recordings which are passed though many many filters, stretched, pitch shifted, cut and paste, resample, re-filtered beyond what the program is capable, re-stretched,re-pitched and so on and so forth. From these amalgamations, selections are chosen and developed further.

    Adam Gabriel Winnie received a B.F.A. in painting from Savannah College of Art & Design in 2012 and is a current 1st yearM.F.A. candidate at the Georgia State University’s Ernest G. Welch School of Art and Design. Winnie is an artist whose oeuvre covers the gamut of art practices; from realist charcoal drawing and oil painting to performance, audio sculpture and beyond. Since 2003, Adam has been exhibiting in solo and group exhibitions across the United States, including; The Sylvia White Gallery in Ventura, California; The Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art in New Paltz, New York;The Vendue in Charleston, South Carolina and many others. His works are a part of the Permanent Art Collection at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Judge Realty Corporate Collection, The Savannah College of Art & Design Permanent Collection and more.

    Mixing together radio signals redolent of the French underground resistance, used in Cocteau’s film Orphée (1950),and some remarks concerning the use of coded language among a group of French alchemists of the 1920s, Tone Testament 1 (Argonauts), comes out of the idea of a phonetic qabalah–the use of a green language or ‘language of the birds’, especially as used in French Hermeticism. The work is developed out of the notion of the interchangeability of sound, word, reality,and language as the base and principle key of all hermetic activity.

    A woman looking for a deeper connection beyond sex (bellsringing and bombs going off), which becomes a hollow search and is repeatedlycoerced into sex.  A doctor’s visit sheds light on her anatomical blessingand curse. Eventually she is able to find love but still only as the object ofmale desire.

    This sound piece is a linear edit of Deep Throat without the visuals and explicit sex scenes.  It is not to censor but to investigate the questionable storyline, the (false) autonomy of Linda Lovelace and the film’s background of rape in a ubiquitous pop culture relic.  

    Erika Silverman was born inPhiladelphia but has been living in Glasgow for over the past ten years. Her background is in film and archives and has been working in various artvenues and researching for her own art practice.  Her practice focuses onpop culture and ephemera that aims to closely interrogate objects, images, andsounds for their politics of society and relations to gender with a littlehumour.  She is currently carrying out a PhD looking at algorithmic biasin online porn.

Inspired by the so called ‘numbers stations’, i.e. short wave radio broadcasts that only broadcast numbers as coded languages: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Numbers_station
    I imagined to do a numbers station of my own and I thought that the language I wanted to use was the universal language of nature, as it is expressed by the golden ratio proportions, the so called Fibonacci number series. Therefore I broadcast the first 39 numbers of the Fibonacci series in many languages including Chinese, Hindu, Arabic and others.
