  • Jed Miner - Magnetic Siren

    10 November 2020 @ 1:30 am - 4:00 am

    more details

    Afterusing shortwave radios for sound generation I have recently assembled a eurorack based synthesizer using only a shortwave radio module as a sound source. These broadcast transmissions are treated with effects live and then recorded directly into a hardware sampler.

    “Magnetic Siren” is a small collection of recordings from the past several months. The process of recording can occur at any time based on the radio reception and weather conditions. usually late afternoon and in the early hours of the morning.



    I studied Art and Electronic Music at CalArts and began building synthesizers inspired by David Tudor using I-Ching chance operations to determine circuit design. Circuitry plays a large role in my work, the metaphor of electronic signal flow provides a schematic approach to process based multimedia practice that can be modeled using simple process flow diagrams.

    Recently, I received an MFA in Interdisciplinary Documentary Media Practices at University of Colorado, Boulder. While there, my interests focused on the creation of in-camera glitch artifacts from video recording screens and public display devices.

  • Axel Gomo - Rear Window vol 3

    10 November 2020 @ 6:00 am - 7:00 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’.

  • Craig Gell - Wave Machine

    10 November 2020 @ 7:00 am - 7:30 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.

    3. Leonie Roessler – Lithuanian Summer Day

    My grandfather had Lithuanian nurse during the years before his death. Lena became part of our family and my son and I spent two summers with her largely self-sustaining family in the countryside. Lena always says, “It’s a hard life but it’s a good life.” I got water from the well every morning and night. You can hear the repeating pattern of this in the piece, and with it rhythmic patterns of chicken sounds, transforming into children playing, and then transforming further into a rhythmic block of the children swimming in a pond in the yard.

    Leonie captures her environment through field recordings, which she uses for radio pieces, sound installations, and compositions for soloists and ensembles. She had recent residencies at New Media Society and Limited Access Festival (Iran), Forum Wallis (Switzerland), and The Story of Space Festival (India), and Berlin Circus Biennale (Germany), and Altes Finanzamt (Germany). She is a core artist at Studio LOOS in The Hague and runs the radio branch of LOOS, Radio LOOS. Her works have been released through Musica Dispersa (Spain/UK), and Noise á Noise (Iran) and have been physically archived in the British Library

    5. Johann Diedrick – Birds of Fedex

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

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

    In 1986 I was invited to set up a music development project with the cultural troupes of the Tigrayan Peoples Liberation Front or TPLF. Our brief was extremely vague….

    We spent six months in the remote Kaza valley in Northern Ethiopia, working with the cultural troupes working to notate their music; arrange traditional Tigrayan music for modern electric instruments and to record and produce their work. 

    In 2019 we returned to Tigray and met up with some of pour former students to find out what had happened to both the liberation struggle and the legacy of the Gureza music school.

     Cathy Lane is a composer, sound artist and academic. Her work uses spoken word, field recordings and archive material to explore aspects of our listening relationship with each other and the multiverse. She is currently focused on how sound relates to the past, our histories, environment and our collective and individual memories from a feminist perspective.

  • SEAMANTIS - CollageFotor7

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

    more details

    a tuning in to: … temporal fissures … static drift … digital artifacts … cracked binaries … occasionally heightened & often obscured synchronicity.

    A recorded response to the possibilities and oblique challenges of live group free improvisation in the virtual realm. Each performer dialling in remotely from topographically distinct locations to a temporarily shared virtual space within the ever shifting online ocean. With the medium itself an insistent participant, glitches abound and what one performer responds to is not necessarily what another hears. And yet, out of the multilayered digital morass, sounds attune as the mantis momentarily manifests.

    SEA MANTIS is a semi-mythical, many tentacled aquatic being that has a seeming tendency to emerge in the combined company of Ed Shipsey, Andrew Ciccone, Adam Kinsey and Stephan
    Barrett; four active members of London’s free improvisation and experimental music scene. Having first surfaced at a live performance at SET in Dalston in December 2019, the MANTIS has now transmogrified into a mainly virtual phenomenon, although physical sightings are still occasionally reported.

    Kyle Vanderburg – Tape Piece 32-192 (10:01)

    Tape Piece is part of a series of single-sound-source daydream pieces, where a solitary object or family of objects is repurposed to create an otherworldly soundscape. This work uses tape–masking, scotch, aluminum, packing, and duct–sometimes recognizable, and sometimes heavily processed. The familiar is juxtaposed with the fresh, and what starts out with unrolling and tearing quickly unravels as sounds evocative of gunfire, of bombs and explosions, and of Geiger counters suggesting the downfall of civilization. New creatures emerge throughout, each trying to find their place in a world that has come unglued.

    Composer Kyle Vanderburg (b. 1986)grew up in Missouri where the Ozarks meet the Mississippi River valley. Raised on southern gospel and American hymnody, his music walks the line between eliciting nostalgia and devising innovative sonic worlds.  His electronic works often play with familiar sounds in new contexts; his acoustic works feature memorable melodies and a very fluid sense of time. He holds degrees from Drury University and the University of Oklahoma and has studied under Carlyle Sharpe, Marvin Lamb, Konstantinos Karathanasis, and Roland Barrett.He’d be delighted if you checked out KyleVanderburg.com.

  • Marja Ahti - The Yard, The Room Upstairs (Still Life)

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

    more details

    The Yard, The Room Upstairs (Still Life) is a tape work inspired by allegorical vanitas paintings. Aiming at a moving target, the piece explores the elusiveness of memory by alternating two thematically connected field recordings, each time with overdubs and treatments gradually replacing the original source.

    Two memories are revisited alternately three times each. The piece starts out from two short scenes recorded on site: a yard sounded by crickets and a piano in a room. Banal yet charged with what is absent: other senses, inaudible sonic details, layers of emotion. These scenes are recreated three times: first with the original source, the second time with part of the source and the third time without the source.

    Scene I: The Yard
    Date: August 14, 2020, South-West Finland
    Setting: An almost empty camping ground. A remnant of the welfare culture of decades past. A remote bay surrounded by forest, houses, cottages and sheds, peeling red paint. An overgrown playground and mini golf court half sunken into the soft ground covered with pine needles.

    At dusk, walking across the yard. The air has a smokey quality and is filled with the rise and fall of the sounds of crickets. They are always at a distance, never near, stopping when you enter their field, then starting again a few moments after leaving it, like the wake of a boat swelling back into the sea. A mouse runs across the gravel and freezes motionless under your gaze. Faint movements in the surrounding trees in full dark green at the peak of late summer. The light scent of burning logs.

    Revisit the memory of this moment over and over as it evades you, like the crickets, the wake.

    Scene II: The Room Upstairs
    Date: August 29, 2020, Southern Finland
    Setting: A yellow house surrounded by fields. Windows in all but one direction. Afternoon sunlight. A rarely played piano in a large living room. A dishwasher humming in the adjoining kitchen. The presence of people downstairs felt but not heard. Amateur oil paintings adorning the walls. Portraits, landscapes and still lives, mostly. A book case filled to the ceiling with 70’s and 80’s bestsellers. A stuffed snake on a shelf, a cow hide rug, a hearing aid and batteries on a mahogany coffee table, a pair of large slippers. Another scene inhabited by the remnants of hobbies, leisure time, objects to fill out the measures of an afternoon that grows longer with each year.

    Play along to the piano.

    The piece contains samples of rehearsal recordings from another work in progress with Aino Juutilainen (cello), Johanna Kalliokulju (mezzo-soprano) and Villa Ruscica (harp).

    Marja Ahti (b. 1981) is a Swedish-Finnish sound artist and composer working with field recordings, electronics, feedback, magnetic tape and digital treatments. Her work gravitates towards organic textures and intuitive tunings, assembling rough edged yet precise compositions, poetically narrative and rich in detail. Ahti has presented her music in many different contexts around Europe, in Japan and the United States. She is currently active as a duo with her partner Niko-Matti Ahti and in the artist/organizer collective Himera.

    2. Gregory Kramer – Melting Neapolitan

    Melting Neapolitan is a soundwork made from field recordings of three distinct ice cream trucks. For many people, the sounds ofice cream trucks are evocative of a time and place. These three ice cream truck sounds (representing strawberry, chocolate and vanilla flavors of Neapolitan ice cream) are processed to be distant and atmospheric, yet familiar.

    Gregory Kramer is a multidisciplinary artist and musician working with sound and space. Taking inspiration from his archaeological curiosity of abandoned places, he seeks ghosts among the ruins and unearths evidence of forgotten histories through sound. He composes with field recordings, found materials,and electronics, sometimes extending into installations.

     3. Misery Bacon – The Fat Within the Meat of Logic

    As the world drifted into the pandemic, I boarded a plane to Bergen to start a new life. What promised to bea difficult year of readjustment, became a surreal one where the world was forced to readjust in unison. I began to explore new ways of working with sound as a solo artist for the first time. Walks into the mountains to record sounds equally familiar and foreign, edited together with found audio and live instrumentation. These works attempted to explore my anxieties, memories of the life left behind and imagining a new one I was yet to build.

    Misery Bacon is a solo audio project by artist Luke Drozd, an artist, illustrator and musician based inBergen (Norway). His commercial illustration work takes a variety of forms,including screen printed posters, album and merchandise design for music. His writing, performance and sculpture practice has evolved through different collective projects including “spoken-weird” duo Reet Maff’l with musician Andy Abbott and co-founding the small-press cassette label Bloxham Tapes. Until March 2020, Luke was based in London (UK). Between 2010-18 heco-curated the living room project space 38b in Peckham, providing a platform for emerging artists to create new work.

The text comes from a Sierra Leonean Krio dictionary. I’m interested in the way we find meaning as much through misrecognition as recognition. When is the point at which nothing becomes something and when it does, does it stop being nothing?Thanks to Green Door Studio for helping me record and mix this.

    Danny Pagarani is a musician and artist living and working in Glasgow

     

  • Jack Vickridge - Building Instruments

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

    more details

    Building Instruments centres on the soundworld of an industrial workspace. In the piece, the building is imagined as an instrument; a resonant body which filters and transforms sounds of the outside world and produces its own distinct sonic language from within. The majority of the sounds in Building Instruments were captured using contact microphones attached to windows, walls and floors; the vibrations of birdsong, rain, and faraway crowds entwine with the internal murmurings of the building.

    Christian Olesen – Itineraire_04_Il_Cinema_Ritrovato (6:42)

    During the 2018-edition of the archival film festival Il Cinema Ritrovato in Bologna, I recorded my walks into and from the city centre every morning and evening next to fragments of films at indoor and outdoor screenings. After the festival, I layered and looped sounds from these recordings organizing them in a day in the life structure. In doing so, I wanted to reflect the blurring of fiction and reality and evoke the trance-like state that watching neglected and classic cinema for a week induces, while capturing a glimpse of the cinephile culture and community kept alive at the festival.

  • Ashanti Harris - OHCE

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

    more details

    Sylvia Wynter’s Maskarade (1973), uses the concept of “Reverse Time” as way of interpreting “carnival-time” and the performance of the world turned upside down. Up becomes down and forward becomes backward; the procession moving in opposing time. 

    Using an autobiographical approach, OHCE is a sonic procession. Field recordings and choreographic directions situate the listener within the liminal position between two places, Guyana and Scotland; using sound, memory, composition and movement to meet an echo backwards. 

    Ashanti Harris is a multi-disciplinary visual artist and researcher working with dance, performance and movement, alongside sculpture, film, sound and installation. With a focus on re-contextualising historical narratives, Ashanti’s work explores the movement of people, ideas and things and the wider social implications of these movements. Her recent research subjects have included dance of the African and Caribbean diaspora in Scotland and Speculating the historical legacies of Guyanese women in Scotland in the 18th and 19th centuries.

    As part of her creative practice, she is co-director for Project X – a creative education programme, platforming dance and performance from the African and Caribbean diaspora; and works collaboratively as part of the collective Glasgow Open Dance School (G.O.D.S) – facilitating experimental movement workshops and research groups.

    Recent solo shows include: The Skeleton of a Name, Transmission Gallery, Glasgow (2019); Second Site, Civic Room, Glasgow (2019). Recent group shows include: Being Present, OGR, Torino (2020); In The Open, The Common Guild, Glasgow (2020); Alchemy Film Festival, Hawick (2020); Pre-Ramble, David Dale, Glasgow (2020); Walking Through the Shadows Eyes Open, SUBSOLO Laboratório de Arte, Sao Paolo, (2019); BLIP! as part of Annuale 2019, Broughton Place, Edinburgh, (2019); As of Yet, Many Studios, Glasgow (2019); Just Start Here, The Anatomy Rooms, Aberdeen (2019); Festival of the Not, Circa Projects, Newcastle (2019)

  • Carlo Patrão - Second Hand Third Eye

    10 November 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 4:40 pm

    more details

    Second Hand Third Eye is a 40-minute radio collage that mixes themes related to self-image, consciousness, perception, existentialism, media theory, and other dimensions. The creative process for this piece started with a survey of academic literature anchored on selfhood and a compilation of terms orbiting the construct of self. This list of keywords was the starting point for creating a dedicated archive of over one thousand voice samples from radio and tv shows from the 1950s to the present day. Often contradictory, non-sensical, or meta-referential, these samples come together in a collective search for meaning, both local and cosmic. This radio piece was initially commissioned by People Like Us (Vicki Bennett) as part of her exhibition First Person, Fourth Wall at Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center in Buffalo, NY.

    Carlo Patrão is a Portuguese radio artist and independent researcher based in NY. His radio work has been commissioned and featured on several international radio stations and in audio festivals. He writes about sound studies, plant music, and the poetics of balloon music and has shared research at Harvard University and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver.

    10 November 2020 @ 4:40 pm - 5:00 pm

    more details

    Flom Sang (Flood Song) is a sound work that explores water and flooding; how it is lived with and felt; how it shapes futures, imaginations and relations between humans and environments. The work blends field recordings of the River Sokna (Norway) with the voices of students from Sokndal School and musical contributions from Sokndal Brass Band. Mixing the situated perspectives of communities with the sonic agency of water, the soundscape amplifies contexts and subjectivities that persist, play and re-imagine what it means to live with environmental change.

    Matterlurgy is a collaborative practice by artists Helena Hunter and Mark Peter Wright (London, UK). Their work critically explores the intersections of art and ecology and involves collaborations with scientists, communities and technologists.Matterlurgy create soundworks,exhibitions and installations, performance, film and VR/AR that have been shownat Tate Modern, Gazelli Art House, Raven Row Gallery, Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, ICA, The Showroom Gallery, Delfina Foundation, Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art (UK), Bòlit Contemporary Art Centre, Girona (ES),Frontiers in Retreat, HIAP, Helsinki (FI) and Jøssingfjord Hydropower Station,Sokndal, (NO).

  • Milo Thesiger-Meacham - Dig this Time

    10 November 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 5:30 pm

    more details

    A live-streamer, ANTIGENUS (anagram of ecologist Tina Negus), navigates continents, time and virtual space, charting a digressive narrative about identity, species and data in a post-Internet world. 

    Dig This Time positions the online streamer as a documentary filmmaker and environmentalist, whose accounts of trips with a drone camera to undefined forests, coastlines and mountain ranges reflect contemporary wildlife documentary. While advanced filming techniques allow viewers to see starker images of Earth and its evolution, they also accelerate the human ability to visualise and articulate imagery. 

    The script – developed alongside an original score and illustrated with digital photography, 3D design and images gathered from the internet – becomes a multimedia work in itself, and draws on the careers of various scientists, politicians and figures in global business. Google Earth features as a character and the piece culminates in a song, which meditates on the international oil trade.

    Text, music, production, direction: Milo Thesiger-Meacham.

    ANTIGENUS (narrator): Douglas Wood.

    MASON? FORD? (singer): Laurie Innes. 


    Milo Thesiger-Meacham is an artist and researcher, whose work is rooted in contemporary literature, philosophy and the consumption of digital media. He writes solo and ensemble works, which combine text, music and visuals.

    Jeff Gburek – Voscillations (7:13)

    Excerpt from the final moment from”Where Does the Listening Begin”, a 40 minute composition for 4channels premiered in Usti Nad Labem, Czech Republic, as part of the Murmurans Mundus, 2019. It has been rather difficult to come up with a stereo version of the original concept. After having abandoned several attempts at an intelligent reduction I can live with, I scrapped them all. Only this segment seems tostand on it’s own. That is likely due to the voices who participated in the call to action. I thank them. In order of first appearance: Karolina Ossowska,Ana Kavalis, Rozaliya Mitrova, Cao Thanh Lan, Jeff Gburek, Olivier Pe, IlariaBoffa.

    Jeff Gburek is a sound artist & composer who has incorporated radiophonic signals/noises and radio processing in his electro-acoustic works since 1993, when he recorded a series of live shortwave assemblages entitled Radio Wide World in Firenze, Italy. This transformative encounter with an earth-spanning signal system aired marginally: on WFMU and New Mexico’s Aetherfest, and eventually self-published in a 4 cd set in 2003. It was at this time he coined the phrase radiophonography to describe his particular style of field recording and DXing while traveling abroad. Radio Wide World would only be more widely heard in 2011 when younger Chicago-based pirate radio art enthusiasts invited him to present his work as a Radius episode # 11 (https://theradius.us/), which led to the first reviews of the project. In more recent times, his radio works have been disseminated via Wave Farm in NY and at scattered European art events. He has published for the last 3 years radio-phonographic works, musique concrete and  works via Radiophrenia Glasgow and has held artistic residencies in Indonesia, Berlin, Amsterdam and Brussels. He lives in Poznan currently.

  • James Greer & Neil Luck - we all emerge some hours later baffled

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

    more details

    Tokyo is a city in a continual state of performance, a panoply of lives compressed into a dense metropolis.Underneath all the glossy commerce, however, is the city’s strange and fascinating underbelly – a rich strata of human subcultures. Over one humid,woozy summer weekend James Greer and Neil Luck traverse the marginalia of Tokyo at night, negotiating its train lines, visiting deserted bubble-era ghost towns, underground jazz venues, salaryman drinking spots, and a tiny bar repurposed as a theatre. “We all emerge some hours later, baffled” is their disorienting mix of reconfigured field recordings and half remembered reflections.

    Currently based in Tokyo, James Greer is a field recordist and composer whose work often responds to people and the built environment.

    Neil Luck is a composer, performer, and director based in London. His music engages the physical and fallible nature oflive performance in multimedia contexts, and attempts to frame the act of musicmaking itself as something strange, useful, or spectacular in and of itself.

  • Kunstradio 2 - Bio-electric Radio by absolute value of noise

    10 November 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

    more details

    “Bio-electricRadio” is conceived as an outdoor sound installation. The piece imagines a world where electronics and living plants have merged and hybridized into “living circuits.” These circuits make sounds and broadcast them to the world using long antennas made of vines. The sound is made up of recordings of individual bees (honey bees, bumble bees, miners, leaf-cutters, and unidentified varieties) mixed with tones and sound artifacts from bio-electricsynthesizer modules (modules that use parts of the plant within their circuitry).

    The piece explores ideas and research around the electro-chemical relationship between bees and plants. It delves into the “bioelectric” theories of Georges Lakhovsky (1869-1942), and it develops the artist’s interests in radio,electronics, and bringing attention to phenomena that are typically invisible,or overlooked, within our environment.

    Absolute Value of Noise is a sound artist from Vancouver. He creates radio, installations, network projects, performances, curatorial projects, and handmade CD editions.

  • Paul Nataraj - Cobblestones and Kitchari

    10 November 2020 @ 9:00 pm - 10:30 pm

    more details

    ‘Cobblestones and Kitchari’ is a sound work about loss, grief, family and love. Writing began in January 2013, the month my father died and was completed in 2020. The work is presented as a continuous narrative exploring places and events from my life, through childhood, his illness and his unexpected death. Each of the works included are produced from sounds connected to my Dad, his immediate UK and extended Indian family. The individual sections are expressions of sonic memory, audio testimony and the shifts in the perceptions of those memories over time. .As well as being a portrait of my family, this work also explores transnationalism, and minority identity formation and is in many ways an ethnographic study through the prism of sound. This work is an exploration of the transitory points of listening and how they change and change us overtime.  Acts of listening and creating memory are in constant flux, not fixed. Making memory and identity formation is dynamic, non-generic and a labile process especially through traumatic times. It is the merging of spaces,places and objects, it is skewed repetition, its is voices unremembered,fragile and moving, timbres rather than words, one sided conversation, echoes and the liminal intersections of dreams, perception, reality and emotion, it is not just one song.  These memories coalesce around words, move across worlds and drift as people, either absent or present, adding to the layers we accrue over time. They become the threads in the fabric of who we are and the practice of our everyday lives. Movements, re-tellings, gestures, and their concomitant sounds both recorded and transient, rest in these liminal spaces,and maybe that’s where this should be heard.
