  • Lupus Siegert - reCOnstrUcTIVe

    21 November 2020 @ 12:00 am - 1:00 am

    more details

    “rECoNStrUcTIVe” is anongoing experimental sound project exploring the interplay of natural soundlandscapes and artificial-intelligences.

    Starting point for the project’scompositions were spatial-audio recordings of urban space and life takeninternationally between 2017-2020.

    The original recordings werereinterpreted, manipulated and augmented in collaboration with twoartificial-intelligences; Amber and Teal.

    This created ambient compositionsakin to holograms of acoustic and harmonic situations in urban culture,

    playing with psychoacousticperception and moving freely between the natural and artificial qualities ofsound.

    For the radio edition, a selectionof existing pieces was specifically arranged and remixed to allow for a diverseand challenging yet enjoyable listening experience.

     My works focus on virtualenvironments, futurism and pluralism with a technology-based drive forexperimentation.

     Internships in the art and musicindustry gave him a behind the scenes view and allowed him to learn and gainskills in the field.

    (“We’ll be making lots ofnoise” (Gropius Bau), Pfadfinerei, Sculpture Berlin and House of North)

     After high-school education, Istarted pursuing my projects and traveled to Japan among other countries.

    In 2019 I joined N1 studio in Berlinand began collaborating with other artists.

    I played visuals at HKW Transmediale2020 for Lou Drago and Gil and my project “rECoNStrUcTIVe” wasfeatured on Cashmere Radio as well as Deutschlandfunk.

    2020 was supposed to be the year forlive debuts of two projects, due to Covid-19 the concrete need forvirtualization became urgent and inspired co-organizing a virtual screeningfestival.

  • Barry Burns - 23 Minutes To Go: Commence Exuding The Opaque Vapour

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

    more details


    For the last five years I have taken a sample from every video I watch on my laptop. As a tip of the hat to William Burroughs and Robert Anton Wilson I take the sample from the 23rd minute. Each sample is arranged and layered chronologically, constructing an aleatory narrative; a random DJ mix of dialogue, music and foley; a self portrait of viewing habits and memory; an audio Rorschach test. VHS rips merge with Blu Ray restorations, youtube binges mingle with abandoned box sets. Since premiering in 2015 the work has built up an international following (an insomniac in Wolverhampton and someone painting a fence in Council Bluffs, Iowa).

    Barry Burns is not the bloke out of Mogwai, it’s a different, unsuccessful one. He is the co-manager of Radiophrenia and has used his immense power to give himself the highly coveted graveyard slot.

    Mark VernonThe Dominion of Din 

    Description:

    The Dominion of Din is aradio play made out of recordings from a single fixed perspective over aneighteen-year period. It is created entirely from field recordings made out ofthe rear window of my flat. In essence, it’s a catalogue of exterior soundsthat have annoyed, disturbed or angered me over the years living at thisresidence – and sounds that have largely disappeared during lockdown.

    My go-to method of dealing with nuisance noise isto record it. A sort of recording banishing ritual. The hope being that one dayI will be able to utilise these sounds in some way, converting these sources ofirritation into something positive.

    Originally created for the Amplify 2020:Quarantine Festival.

    Biography:

    MarkVernon is a Glasgow based artist whose work exists on the fringes of sound art,experimental music and broadcasting.

  • Axel Gomo - Rear Window vol 6

    21 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. Jonathan Prior – Burrard Inlet: An Audio Portrait

    A 13-minute mix of recordings from along Vancouver’s Burrard Inlet shoreline. Starting from underneath a flapping flagpole at Canada Place, from where we hear a series of horns sounding out the first four notes of the Canadian national anthem (a daily noon occurrence), we encounter the sounds of grain terminals, seaplanes, and the percussive thump of cars over Lions Gate Bridge, before taking a ferry across Vancouver Harbour to listen to waves breaking at Starboat Cove.

    The work is a sound collage based onfeeding the YouTube with the famous Shakespeare’s sonnet “MyMistress Eyes are Nothing Like the Sun”. The sound mix resultingfrom six parallel sessions of streaming video based on these queries,constitutes the recording of this work. Recitation, music and ambient soundsfuse in an improbable, explosive and sometimes hilarious mix of soundand meaning. Inspired equally by early electronic music experimentswith sound collage, the work searches for connections between thepoetic and the everyday and playfully examines YouTuberecommendation algorithm as a possible source of a new type of creativity.

    Andreja Andric (born 1973) is aSerbian composer and programmer, living in Aarhus in Denmark.

    4.  Hannah Kemp Welch & Lisa Hall – VirtualVoices

    Virtual Voices is a sound workthat reviews the current use of automated voices in our cities – consideringhow human presence is represented through recorded and digitally manipulatedsound, and how this is used to direct our behaviour. The work questions howautomation has been implemented, re-visioning the positive changes that voicetechnology could bring to working lives if social good were considered overprofit motive. The artists commit their own voices into a hybrid syntheticpersona, creating their own virtual workforce to speak on their behalf.

    Lisa Hallis a sound artist exploring how environments are built in sound. Hannah’spractice is socially engaged and concerned with listening. Hannah and Lisa metat London College of Communication, whilst studying MA Sound Arts in 2010.

    5.  Elizabeth Joan Kelly – Liminal Telegraphy

    “Liminal Telegraphy” is asound collage that explores the space between radio frequencies, a ghostlysoundscape emanating phantom frequencies and causing the listener to questionwhat they’re hearing versus what they’re imagining.

    Elizabeth Joan Kelly is a NewOrleans-based electronic music composer. She uses found sounds and MIDI tocreate lush soundscapes at the epicenter of synthpop, industrial, ambient,darkwave, and classical music. Born and raised in the swamps of Slidell,Louisiana, and with formal training in composition from Loyola University NewOrleans and the Cleveland Institute of Music, Kelly is as equally comfortablecomposing for symphonies as she is with electronic dance music. Her most recentalbum, Farewell, Doomed Planet!, is about the apocalypse. And Chernobyl wolves.Pollution. And space travel. Existential dread. And whales.

  • Sheena Graham George - Requiescat for the Mothers in the Cillín

    21 November 2020 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

    more details

    Requiescat goes in search of traces of the almost forgotten mothers who died in childbirth and were buried alongside other adults such as suicides, strangers, shipwrecked sailors, murderers and their unfortunate victims, criminals, famine victims andthose with learning disabilities in the cillíní, the un-baptised children’s burial grounds found throughout Ireland.     

    This intimate sound-work weaves together voices from the local community in Dingle & Iveragh, County Kerry, field-recordings, the artists own memories and specially composed music by Anne Wood to explore memory, motherhood, birth, death and the cillín.   

    I am an artist living and working in Orkney. Now in the final year of my PhD at Glasgow School of Art, Requiescat for the Mothers in the Cillín is a central piece of my doctoral research about the mothers buried within these sites.

  • DinahBird & JP Renoult - The Gold Line

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

    more details

    In 2016 DinahBird & Jean-Philippe Renoult began Antenna Gods, a composite art project on the use of radio waves by high frequency traders. In June 2018 they undertook a journey between the New York stock exchange, now a data centre in Mahwah, New Jersey, and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange in Aurora, West Chicago. The time it takes for data to be transmitted from one centre to the other via a network of microwave repeaters is 4.01 milliseconds, faster than the blink of an eye. These microwave repeaters are placed on towers that follow a geodesic path between the two exchanges. The actual route of the towers takes you over the Allegheny mountains of rural Pennsylvania and past many an Amish homestead, through the flat plains of Ohio, and in front of the immaculately mowed lawns and the blue ‘Make America great again’ flags of Indiana. Some of the towers are a requisition from the AT&T long lines network and can be found at the end of long dusty roads where the presence of new comers is instantly noticed. Some are new and specially commissioned for the purpose. They are unremarkable, just another shape in amongst the spikey cell phone antennas that litter the interstate. DinahBird & Jean-Philippe Renoult’s ‘slow’ high frequency round-trip along what Chicago traders nick-name the Gold Line, took twenty-four days. Along the way they documented these outposts and their surroundings using image and sound. They learned about the past and present uses of these transmission towers that are both a material memorial to radio history, and a physical reminder of passing time.

    DinahBird & Jean-Philippe Renoult are sound and radio artists based in Paris. Both their solo and joint practices question the notion of diffusion, transmission and memory and are highly responsive to place. Their work includes sound pieces, installations, broadcasts, performances and publications and is often inspired by early transmission technologies and archives. Their current interests include, electromagnetic hums, old weather, the shruti box, beetles, and high frequency trading.

    https://radiophrenia.scot/portfolio/nwando-ebizie/

    Monica Suarez Argudin – I’m floating in a loop (4:30)

    My piece has been inspired by a range of feelings I have felt since I left my country, Cuba. It’s like I’m not from there anymore; still, I never get to completely identify myself as part of the new society that surrounds me today. It also speaks a little bit about the political issues between the USA government and Castro’s. I applied my feelings and memories to create this piece. Two segments of a radio station from Cuba have been included, also a segment from Radio Martí, the end of Obama’s speech in Cuba, and my voice.

     Monica Argudin was born and raised in La Havana, Cuba. She graduated from a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design at the University of Tampa, Florida. Today, she is currently pursuing a master’s in fine art at Georgia State University,Atlanta, Georgia. Her passion for art + design began many years ago when language became a struggle for her to communicate with others. As an immigrant who had to learn English from scratch, she immediately understood how vital visuals elements are within human society.

  • DJ أمواج a.k.a. Aki Onda- Ghost Frequency

    21 November 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

    more details

    Yes, radio transports signals across a variety of distances. But does it leap time…? No. What would happen if it were to jump to the future, passing through both time and space? The sound source of this recording is a series of radio broadcast captured when I visited Morocco in 2010. During the two-week trip to Tangier, Fez, and Marrakesh, I kept making field recordings of daily news or local music programs, recordings which I’ve now randomly edited for this 60-minute piece. Beyond radio’s typical function of frequency relay and capture, I wanted to produce an illusional frequency—collapsing time and space and expanding the territory of our aural imagination. With our activities now delimited by our local vicinity, travel is rare and encounters with others are limited. We have found ourselves hemmed in at a moment of political and social turbulence. I just thought travelling somewhere, even though it’s imaginary, could be refreshing and inspiriting for our minds.

    Aki Onda is an artist and composer currently based in Mito, Japan. He is particularly known for his “Cassette Memories”—works compiled from a “sound diary” of field-recordings collected by using portable cassette recorder over a span of last three decades. Radio is another medium Onda loves and often uses for creating compositions and performances. Onda has presented his work at numerous institutions and festivals such as documenta 14, Louvre Museum, Pompidou Center, Palais de Tokyo, Fondation Cartier, Présences électronique, Argos, Bozar, ICA London, Counterflows, International Film Festival Rotterdam, The Kitchen, MoMA, REDCAT, Time-Based Art Festival, and Nam June Paik Art Center. In 2020, Onda reissued three of his Cassette Memories albums on Room 40 and released two new solo albums. The other two forthcoming albums include his first duo album with Japanese artist Nao Nishihara on Fttari, and his third album with frequent collaborator Akio Suzuki on Hasana Editions.

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

    3. Fabian Zuniga – Finca 

    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.

    4.  Bryony Bates – Coleoptera

    The world is going through a sixth massextinction and it’s all our fault. Even the most abundant forms of animal lifeare dying off in huge numbers. How do we understand what this means forhumanity and all other life on Earth?

    This disorienting experimental sound collageuses multiple voices to ask how we can start to listen differently to eachother and the world around us, taking in veganism, linguistics, Shakespeare andeating cockroaches along the way.

    Coleoptera was originally produced through theNew Creatives North talent development programme in 2019, and broadcast on BBCSounds in January 2020.

    Based on environmental recordings along the territories of Amanã and Mamirauá, in central Amazônia, strange strangers focuses on unusual listening perspectives (above, underwater, and ultrasound), inviting us to listen to (within)a singular world of vitality and non-human otherness. Listening cultivates profound encounters with other beings (life-forms, abiotic terrestrial matters,sounds…), and with our being as an other.

     Pablo Sanz is an artist, composer and researcher currently based in Spain and Northern Ireland.His practice is an open-ended investigation of listening, more-than-human agencies and aural vitality, with a focus on the limits of perception and attention, encouraging sensory ecological awareness. His works —site-determined and public art projects, immersive multichannel installations and concerts in the dark, exhibitions, broadcasts and releases — have been experienced internationally in different contexts.

Above and amidst 16 minutes of righteous dub and Lancastrian-tinged post-punk, Lucy, an airborne sprite, tells of how she is damned to endlessly repeat Satanic stories about Lancashire that she has been told by an evil and shadowy radio DJ named ‘Alan’. The On the Wire broadcast is crucial to the work’s narrative, and to the final triumph of darkness.

    Paul Rooney is an artist/musician based in Liverpool, who makes music with words “investigating the intersections of music, myth, memory and place” (The Wire magazine). His records and installations explore the unpredictable narratives that haunt everyday objects or places, and the comically unreliable nature of narrative itself. Paul has shown in the British Art Show, at Matt’s Gallery, Londonand Tate Liverpool. The original red vinyl 12″ of LucyOver Lancashire received enthusiastic support from Huw Stephens (Radio 1), Marc Riley (6 Music) and Steve Barker (Radio Lancashire) amongstothers. Mark Leckey recently played it on his NTS Radio show.

  • Rebecca Wilcox & Hannah Ellul live

    21 November 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 3:30 pm

    more details

    A collaboration at a distance, in which we explore the dynamics of encounter, interaction and (dis)orientation. After a lockdown was imposed, something like a conversation emerged in a to- and fro- of writing and recordings. The process has been marked by the stretches of time that shape this back and forth, by a certain lag, as we catch up with one another—a slowed-down, stretched-out kind of experience that is perhaps characteristic of lockdown itself. The sounds are marked by a disorientation, a stuttering, syncopating, or detaining, where voice is made multiple and diffuse.

    Rebecca Wilcox lives in Glasgow and works with writing, audio and performance, often using voice as a tool. She is interested in processes of apperception as they disturb our habits of attention.

    Hannah Ellul is an artist working mainly with sound and writing. She makes music as part of Human Heads, with Ben Knight and White Death, with Kelly Jayne Jones. She is also the co-founder of the collaborative project Psykick Dancehall, exploring sonic experience across forms and disciplines.

  • Lucas Norer - disposition

    21 November 2020 @ 3:30 pm - 4:00 pm

    more details

    “Disposition” is an artistic, acoustic and musical reflection on the largest open-air organ in the world: the Heroes’ Organ in Kufstein/Austria. It is not only the organ’s enormous size and vast dimensions that distinguish it, but also its special (tonal) intent and origin. Assembled in 1931, this organ was conceptualised as a sonorous memorial with a “völkisch” (i.e. ethno-nationalistic), German Nationalist orientation and resounds daily without any objection,
    examination of its history or reference to its political significance. “Disposition” reveals the chequered past and present of this instrument and monument in addition to scrutinising its
    usage, context and political significance as well as its features and aesthetics.

    Lucas Norer (*1982) lives and works in Vienna. His works are characterised by an interdisciplinary approach and refer to auditory contents such as production and consumption of music, sound, noise, silence and its relation to social, political, architectural and artistic issues. As part of an extended research and manufacturing process he creates audio-visual installations, objects and projects in the public realm. Lucas Norer works solo and together with the artist collective FAXEN.

    RE/CYCLING combines transmission art, experimental turntablism, and sculptural assemblage, presenting a unique workof visual and sonic art monthly over the course of 2020 on the Mixcloud online platform. Raiding the garbage and recycling bins, each month I create a new”rotating disk assemblage” from salvaged materials. These assemblage sare then spun on a phonograph turntable, while preparations to the turntable itself, substituting the standard stylus/cartridge with contact mics and various other objects (plastic straws, chopsticks, etc.) allows the surfaces of these assemblages to be amplified, recorded, and broadcast. A photograph of the assemblage accompanies each broadcast.

  • Hillah Smaland - Sandwaves

    21 November 2020 @ 4:30 pm - 5:00 pm

    more details

    Hillah Smaland presents an east/west mergence, where the icey sounds of a synthesiser are melted by middle eastern noises. Using ceremonial chants and ritualistic sounds against the backdrop of minimal synth noise; Hillah Smaland presents a vortex into another realm – a sonic materialisation of a place where chanterelle mushrooms grow on date palm trees.
    Hillah Smaland plays the rooted non-belonging, the noises of ying and the yang and the nothingness in between. Hearing and floating between ethereal space and in between tangible love, neither easy or uneasy listening – a dedicated weaving process. When between the crooks of disenfranchisement, Hillah Smaland aesthetises the glue; the merging qualities of sound. A listening act, a space for the mirrored universe within us all.

  • DJ أمواج a.k.a. Aki Onda- Ghost Frequency

    21 November 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

    more details

    Yes, radio transports signals across a variety of distances. But does it leap time…? No. What would happen if it were to jump to the future, passing through both time and space? The sound source of this recording is a series of radio broadcast captured when I visited Morocco in 2010. During the two-week trip to Tangier, Fez, and Marrakesh, I kept making field recordings of daily news or local music programs, recordings which I’ve now randomly edited for this 60-minute piece. Beyond radio’s typical function of frequency relay and capture, I wanted to produce an illusional frequency—collapsing time and space and expanding the territory of our aural imagination. With our activities now delimited by our local vicinity, travel is rare and encounters with others are limited. We have found ourselves hemmed in at a moment of political and social turbulence. I just thought travelling somewhere, even though it’s imaginary, could be refreshing and inspiriting for our minds.

    Aki Onda is an artist and composer currently based in Mito, Japan. He is particularly known for his “Cassette Memories”—works compiled from a “sound diary” of field-recordings collected by using portable cassette recorder over a span of last three decades. Radio is another medium Onda loves and often uses for creating compositions and performances. Onda has presented his work at numerous institutions and festivals such as documenta 14, Louvre Museum, Pompidou Center, Palais de Tokyo, Fondation Cartier, Présences électronique, Argos, Bozar, ICA London, Counterflows, International Film Festival Rotterdam, The Kitchen, MoMA, REDCAT, Time-Based Art Festival, and Nam June Paik Art Center. In 2020, Onda reissued three of his Cassette Memories albums on Room 40 and released two new solo albums. The other two forthcoming albums include his first duo album with Japanese artist Nao Nishihara on Fttari, and his third album with frequent collaborator Akio Suzuki on Hasana Editions.

    1. Aleksandar Zecevic – Water Wheel

    A sound narrative about the dialectics between water, a symbol of harmony,and the dissonance of our time’s aggressive communication. The piece has three movements: 1. Calmness.  An underwater soundscape of serenity. The perception of sound in this world gives us the impression of elasticity time and space.  2.Chaos.The aggression of the media, shaken by the sounds of the digital age. Stream of binary information becomes a noise that catalyzes confusion and fear. 3. Cleansing. Water is bringing us back to the state of calmness. 

    Aleksandar started his career in sound design in 1986. Upon completion of a music conservatory and technical college, he started working in Radio Television Belgrade, Studio B, Radio Belgrade Studio for Electronic Music and Belgrade National Theater. Under the mentorship of the Belgrade University Professor of Sound Design and Radiophonic Art Zoran Jerković, he continues his education in theory and praxis of sound design, recording and electroacoustic’s until his departure to Canada in 1992. In Canada, he works as a freelance Sound Engineer, Audio Designer, Sound Artist and Electroacoustic Composer on film, television, multimedia media projects and performances.From 1998 until 2018, he held the positions of Artistic and Technical Senior Sound Artist and Audio Director for the Interactive Audio in Electronic Art Canada.   aleksandarzecevic.com

     2. Laura Tansley & Gareth John – Who’s with me

    3. Dorota Blaszczak – Trying To Hear A Tree Falling in the Forest

    It is an audio timelapse of unheard sounds from a tiny park near a summer house. I mounted an autonomous recorder on a tree to capture sound of one week in August. This audio work represents 24 hours of sound, starting from 8 pm in the evening, „compressed” to seven minutes. The sounds from consecutive soundfiles are overlapping in several layers to create a sound flow of the whole day. After a quiet night some roosters start the day which is full of ephemeral sounds saved by my recorder, augmenting my perception.

    Dorota Blaszczak is an audio engineer at the Polish Radio Archives in Warsaw and a lecturer at the Sound Engineering Department of the Fryderyk Chopin University of Music in Warsaw. She teaches courses in interactive sound, works in sound restoration and preservation, creates audio works and interactive projects.  http://www.dorotablaszczak.pl

    4. Grundik Kasyansky – That Sounds Spiritual

    I’ve been experimenting with incorporating radios with my feedback synthesizer (customised feedback/analog synthesis system) since 2006. In March 2020 I knew that it is time for me to start using radios again. The world was going completely mad, and this craziness was very evident in the radio talk broadcasts. Although radio signal went through the feedback system, and mutated, multiplied, dissolved, completely transformed into something else, I made sure to keep at least some words understandable. The broadcasts were strange, and the resulting pieces are as moving, as surreal.

    Grundik Kasyansky is a Moscow born electronic musician, based in London. He was a founding member of Israeli experimental electronic duo Grundik and Slava. The duo played an important role in the flourishing of the Tel-Aviv and Jerusalem art and music underground in late 90s-early 00s. He collaborated with many musicians, dancers, painters and filmmakers, and released records through Matchless, Another Timbre, Creative Sources, Cathnor, etc. He also plays in bands Staraya Derevnya, Теплота and Llull Machines. Since 2006 he’s been developing a customised setup, which he calls “feedback synthesizer” (a feedback/analog synthesis system).   https://grundik.tumblr.com/

    5. Kate Kosek – Villagio (Join My Commune)

    Inspired by a prompt to create my ideal village visually and audibly. Similar to how I approach all of my work, it was constructed through layers that weave in and out of focus. The majority of this piece was formed from field recordings,which was then overlaid with a monologue that acts as an advertisement for my ideal environment. A piece of my friend’s song is sampled after the 3:30 mark (credit:Lost Boy? “Sandman”). I would consider this to be a hypnotic commercial for radio listeners. 

    Kate Kosek is an Atlanta-based mixed-media artist whose studio practice evolved from her obsession with pattern-centric crafts made during an early 90’s childhood in upstate NewYork.  She holds a BFA in Painting and Drawing from SUNY New Paltz and is currently an MFA candidate at Georgia State University with a concentration in Textiles. Her work explores themes of control, mainly in relation to an increased dependence on technology, and how it affects our memory, patience,and perception. http://katekosek.com

    6.  Gavin Brown – Queen Street Station

    Travelling back home with some audio equipment on-loan from the Art School, I managed to record the ambience of Queen Street Station while waiting on my train, an all-too-familiar scenario throughout my life growing-up out-of-town, visiting the cities as often as possible. What I love about this particular recording is that the station went under redevelopment soon after, and I like to think of it as ‘perhaps’ the last reasonable audio recording of my old Queen Street Station.  Gavin Brown continues to live in his home town of Larbert and Stenhousemuir. He has spent his life so far being involved as much as possible in music (drums and electronics), and more recently experimenting with other visual (documentary and abstract film)and sonic mediums (field recording, sound archiving, and ambisonics). Gavin continues to produce his own music as ‘OnTheFly’ and occasionally collaborates on Fence Collective releases.

    7Ivor Kallin – Bute Sangs, Eh? R09_0094

    8. Kashif Sharma Patel – juggernaut /real talk/enjambed bliss/that’s just me

    A rough soundscape and spoken word performance piece thinking through themes ofvocalised embodiment, articulation, cityscapes, and cultural saturation.Interspersed with found recordings the soundscape remixes the page poetry of not yet / that’s just me further openingout the possibility of aesthetic sociality. Jagganath,the Indic deity, provides the foundation for thinking the problem ofarticulation within colonial languaging, and so disidentifying its overwroughtmeaning of ‘juggernaut’ within the metropole.Thepiece was produced in collaboration with sound-artist AnukaRamischwili-Schafer. The piece was initially featured on Free Cash (CashmereRadio, Berlin).

    KashifSharma-Patel is a poet, writer and editor interested in the interface of sonic,visual and literary culture, particularly focusing on queer and racialised experimental work. They are the co-founder and editor at the 87 Press. Kashif has published and performed poetry across a number of platforms with a full-length collection forthcoming. They have also published music, art and literary criticism on ArtForum, AQNB, and The Quietus amongst others.  https://youngdevi.wordpress.com/

  • Duncan Chapman and Supriya Nagarajan - Lullaby: Sonic Cradle

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

    more details

    In the last six years sound artist/composer Duncan Chapman and Carnatic singer Supriya Nagarajan have been developing and touring their Lullabies project. The original impetus
    came on a trip to India where Suprya noticed that women working in the fields were singing lullabies to their sleeping children while they worked. We have toured the project
    internationally for the last 5 years and it has included a wide variety of collaborating
    musicians and artists. Many of the performances have been at twilight or late night and
    audiences have frequently fallen asleep (the intention of the lullaby after all!) during the
    performance.

    Duncan Chapman : Electronics & Field Recordings
    Supriya Nagarajan : Voice

    This is compiled from several performances and features some of our collaborators Ingebjørg Lognvik Reinhold, Joana Margarida Machado Araújo, Rafael Karlen, Jack McNeil and Neil Valentine

    Duncan Chapman and Supriya Nagarajan have been collaborating on multiple sound and
    music projects for the last six years. Work has included the Lullaby project which has
    toured the UK, Scandinavia, Portugal and Australia and has been featured in many
    international festivals including HCMF (Huddersfield), Sound (NE Scotland), Ultima (Oslo)
    and Spot On (Sydney). At the start of 2020 they performed the “morning music” at the
    Jaipur Literature Festival. For the last six months they have been creating live online
    events with collaborators all over the world. Their new album “Dusk Notes” will be released this autumn.
