  • Limbo Tapes - 24 Hours In Radio Limbo Part 1

    11 November 2020 @ 12:00 am - 12:30 am

    more details

    This tape is a carefully arranged collection of radio highlights, released in celebration of two years of our show, Radio Limbo.

    Featuring peculiar dialogue, sketches and sound design plundered from across the airwaves, and re-purposed. The clips are woven together cinematically, with new, otherworldly music, and our own sonic branding.

    “24 hours in Radio Limbo”holds close the most endearing traits of radio production and shines a flickering light on the contrived absurdity of much of mainstream radio’s output. Leaving out much of the musical element, you can expect a concentrate flow of unhinged cut and paste material, across themes of space, sound,creatures and the occult.

    Radio Limbo consists of Pete Hazell & Sean Lee, who together run Limbo Tapes, a cassette label based in Bristol. They’ve put out eight releases since 2017, with a growing audience for their collectable compilations.

    The focus has always been on representing fringe music, that feeds off of popular underground sounds whilst maintaining their own mysterious interpretations of it.

    The same can be said of Radio Limbo,which is delivered as a specialist music show, hosted by Pete Hazell, featuring signature branding and moments of unpredictable, amusing and dramatic scenes.

    Hazell & Lee continue to evolve their collaborations, with new material on the way…

  • Axel Gomo - Rear Window vol 4

    11 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’.

  • Mark Vernon - Magneto Mori: Kilfinane

    11 November 2020 @ 7:00 am - 7:30 am

    more details

    Magneto Mori: Kilfinane is an exploration of tape recording as a form of memory storage. In this iteration the location is the Irish mountain town of Kilfinane. Using a portable reel to reel tape recorder sounds from around the town were recorded onto the first side of the tape over a two day period – dripping rain, creaky gates, car mechanics, drainpipes, shops, church bells, refrigerator cabinets, wind blowing through the trees, passing traffic,etc. were just some of the sounds encountered.

    On the second side were compiled voices of Kilfinane – extracts from the personal radio archives of Diarmuid McIntyre and Grey Heron Media that date back as far as twenty years or more. The recordings selected consisted mostly of local history, coverage of community events, news stories of local interest and interviews with a variety of Kilfinane residents.

    Using tape as an analogy for the frailty of human memory this tape was then cut into pieces of random length, freeing the sounds from their linear,chronological sequence. The tape cuttings were then intermingled with a collection of magnets that de-magnetise (thus erasing) portions of the tape.The tape (along with the magnets) was then buried in a hole in the grounds of the local school. After several days steeped in the earth of Kilfinane the remaining audio fragments were exhumed. Dirty, mangled and partially erased the tape was washed, dried and spliced back together in a random order ready for playback.

    Further digital recordings were also made around the same location during the period of the tape’s interment. The contrast between these higher fidelity field recordings and the degraded analogue sounds added a further substrata of time to the process.

    Mark Vernon is a Glasgow based sound artist whose current work is focused on concepts of audio archaeology, magnetic memory and nostalgia. At the core of his practice lies a fascination with acousmatic presence, environmental sound, obsolete media and the reappropriation of found sounds. A rich collection of domestic tape recordings; audio letters, dictated notes, answer-phone messages and other lost voices often find their way into his unorthodox soundworlds. These diverse elements are distilled into radiophonic compositions for broadcast, multi-channel diffusion, fixed media and live performances.

    1. Colleen Keough – Perpetual Drift

    The earth has undergone drastic climate changes, and a crew aboard a lost ship at sea struggle to adapt to an uncertain future created by a series of tragic events. The ship’s crew are: Ether (a transmissions artist),the Captain, the Navigator (a depressed robot poet), Echo (the mythical nymph),and the Specialist (Scientist), a female scientist who specializes in rare botanics. The story embodies environmental concerns we face as a collective  human family, and the death of old structures giving way to new life forms,systems, and organizations. I perform each character’s voice, and composed theelectro-acoustic soundtrack. 

    Colleen Keough is a hybrid media artist working in lens and time-based media, performance, installation, creative writing, and digital art.Her integrated media works explore feminist new media themes through the intersection of pop culture, identity, myth and technology. Her works have been included in national and international exhibitions and festivals. She completed undergraduate studies at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, MA,& DePaul University in Chicago, IL, and earned an MFA in Electronic Integrated Arts from Alfred University in New York state.

    2.  Holbeck Still – Sound Laboratory – Atomic Landscapes:Alpha Particles

    Holbeck, Still is an audio artist based in Surrey,UK.  The Holbeck, Still style fuses thick analog electronic sound design with unique captures of traditional instrumental tones.  This is compounded by a fascination for exploring the limits of the stereo field, whilst incorporating elements of randomness and imperfection. He utilises a range of techniques tha tinclude field recordings, vintage tape machines, sampling and cutting-edge synthesis.  The resulting works are cinematic,complex soundscapes.

     3. Joao Oliveira – N’vi’ah

    N’vi’ah is an Old Testament word meaning prophetess. A prophetess conveys one or more divine messages often in the form of inspired songs. And many times her words are cryptic, requiring interpretation or even translation. This work uses isolated phonemes as musical material. Intelligible words are not articulated, leaving to the listener the imagination of what their contents and meanings could be.N’vi’ah was commissioned by the Ibermúsicas Project, and composed at the Human Interaction Laboratory – Diego Portales University in Santiago de Chile. It is dedicated to Federico Schumacher.

    Composer João Pedro Oliveira holds the Corwin Endowed Chair in Composition for the University of California at Santa Barbara. He studied organ performance, composition and architecture in Lisbon. He completed a PhD in Music at the University of New York at Stony Brook. His music includes opera, orchestral compositions, chamber music, electroacoustic music and experimental video. He has received over 50international prizes and awards for his works, including three Prizes at Bourges Electroacoustic Music Competition, the prestigious Magisterium Prizeand Giga-Hertz Special Award, 1st Prize in Metamorphoses competition, 1st Prizein Yamaha-Visiones Sonoras Competition, 1st Prize in Musica Nova competition.

    4.     Lisa Fabian – NORDSJÖ

    An assembly of sounds mainly recorded from ice expanding and contracting on a lake next to my family house in Sweden.These recordings are mixed with NASA space recordings that are made by translating electromagnetic waves into sound waves. Growing up I was both intimidated and intrigued by the otherworldly sounds the lake would produce. I remember breath-taking night skies endlessly filled with stars, accompanied by the sound of a lake singing on clear cold winter nights, timelessly linked frozen water and space in memory.

    Lisa Fabian is an artist based in Glasgow predominantly working in sound, video and performance.

    5. Yamachan – Moods

    A set of compositions reflecting on the increasingly changeable spectrum of emotions associated with modern living and mental health. Ormusic recorded during lockdown, April 2020.

    6.  Kengel Maysonet Baerga – Mamma Mia

    Mamma Mia” is also comprised entirely of audio clips from a single gay porn site. I continue to question if a product is tainted by its source, but in this piece, I do this from a more playful point of view. I recreate video game sounds and intend to create a very fraternal atmosphere, which exists in contraposition to its explicit gay source.

    My work is centered around identity, primarily my own. As a queer, dark skinned Puerto Rican living in the continental US, I often delve into the complications of race,nationality, religion, sexuality, and especially gender. The way my work ties all these themes together is with the idea of the artist’s hand. Although, I am not referring so much to the physical marks left behind in a painting or sculpture, but a different sense of authorship. I leave behind traces of my intersectional Self, hints at my identities such as incorporating pink,tropical imagery, or sugar, etc.           http://bit.ly/kmaysonet

    7.     Jan Van Den Dobbelsteen – In Media Res A-6

    This work especially made for Radiophrenia. Result of a transformation from a sculpture about type, typography, language alchemy, sound and pronunciation of groups of type-characters.

    Jan Van Den Dobbelsteen is a Eindhoven The Netherlands based interdisciplinary artist who has exhibited,curated programs and exhibitions,lectured and performed internationally. He is deeply involved with both acoustic and visual media.Publishing on his record and book label Cosmic Volume. http://www.iae.nl/users/jada

    8.     Jamie Kane – The everted rim of a vase

    The everted rim of a vase oscillates between the space of a room to that of the mouth, from the sound of landscapes to the formation of language, from above to below, upwards and outwards.

    My work centres around the relationships between time and materiality. I liken my practice to that of a dump, where time, information and material bear upon, decay and fuse with each other. The economy of the dump is one where temporalities, histories, hierarchies and values are loosened, undone and attributable in new ways. In 2019 I received the study abroad scholarship from The Leverhulme Trust, allowing me to complete my Masters of Fine Art at The Piet Zwart Institute, Rotterdam.           http://jamiekane.xyz

     

  • Una Lee - Faràn

    11 November 2020 @ 9:00 am - 9:30 am

    more details

    This work of audio storytelling depicts the fictional myth of an island (Faràn) in five monologues, conceived as an ode to the phenomenon of ‘tide’. The monologues are quasi accompanied by five pieces of music each of which takes inspiration from different seascapes created by varying states of the tide. Each composition is led by a specific imagery of sea alluded to in the respective monologue. For the storyline, I’ve drawn from diverse folklores and traditions such as Breton, Korean, Torajan and Mexican, representing some of the ways
    in which these cultures deal with tide and/or death.

    Una Lee is an artist working with sounds, stories and sensations in perpetual pursuit of found sound and ways for alternative storytelling. She sings, narrates, writes and tells stories, improvises, collects field recordings and produces immersive compositions. Many of her works address to time, memory, human condition and ecology. She holds MA and PhD in Sonic Arts.

    5.  Freya Johnson Ross – Fragmented histories (i.)

    This piece invites us to reflect on the politicaldimensions of listening from twin perspectives: the individual and collective, theembodied and theoretical. It draws on archived sound and new recordings, interweavingvoicesdiscussing the history of work theorising the political dimensions of listening,while simultaneously presenting these as experiences.We hear and experience processesof ‘witnessing’individual and collective histories of landmark industriallosses, and are reminded of the subtleties of interpersonal listening learnedthrough induction into the Sunderland shipyards.The construction serves toemphasise the temporal dimensions of listening, and awareness of history itselfas an ongoing process of construction and reconstruction.

    Freya Johnson Ross is an artist and researcher working primarily with sound and installation. Her interests are focused on sound and listening across disciplines, knowledge production and understanding, and equality, and in her practice she strives to invoke people’s reflection on the intangible and their own perceptions. Her current work addresses the politics of listening and the making and re-purposing of sound archives.From Glasgow,she has studied at the University of Cambridge, Wimbledon College of Art, and University of Sussex. http://www.freyajohnsonross.com

    6. Kengel Maysonet Baerga – I’m Str8

    In “I’mStr8” I have created music entirely comprised of audio clips I have acquired from a single gay porn site. Everything the listener hears is made of manipulated, gay “Pornographic audio.” Through this piece I am exploring the potential of sounds and questioning if the music remains”tainted” by the source.

    My work is centered around identity, primarily my own. As a queer, dark skinned Puerto Rican living in the continental US, I often delve into the complications of race,nationality, religion, sexuality, and especially gender. The way my work ties all these themes together is with the idea of the artist’s hand. Although, I am not referring so much to the physical marks left behind in a painting or sculpture, but a different sense of authorship. I leave behind traces of my intersectional Self, hints at my identities such as incorporating pink,tropical imagery, or sugar, etc.

    7.  Josie Perry – Beautifully Formed

    ‘Beautifully Formed’ is a sonic spin-off of a longer performance called ‘Retainers,’ which juxtaposes verbal description of a call-centre job with the rhythmic telling of an absurd and viscerally uncomfortable story. In this sound piece, a part of the ‘Retainers’ story is taken as an extract and delivered by an ambivalent voice, bleeding into an ambient soundscape. 

    I’m an artist working mainly between drawing, sculpture and performance. In performance and soundworks, I use modes of alienated voicing and unreliable narration to perform the incoherence and contingency of selfhood, and to play with the material and affective boundaries of speech. Recent exhibitions and performances include at Centre Cívic Can Felipa (Barcelona), Stichting Perdu (Amsterdam), Formerly Known As With de With Centre for Contemporary Art (Rotterdam), DE PLAYER(Rotterdam) and Twenty One, venue of Focal Point Gallery (Southend-on-Sea). Ihave recently moved to Glasgow after finishing an MFA at the Piet ZwartInstitute, Rotterdam.

    1. Chin Ting Chan – Rituals

    Rituals is inspired by various ritual processes of different cultures. Some rituals involve elaborate processes,while others are simply daily rituals inherited from the tradition. While most rituals are diversely different, they all engage a sequence of actions according to a prescribed order guided by a mythical belief. This piece takes inspirations and sonic elements reminiscent of the ritual processes and forms a sonic collage that alternates constantly between hyper-real and surreal soundscapes, and creates a multi-layered texture of timbral and rhythmic complexity.

    Hong Kong-American composer Chin Ting CHAN has been a fellow and guest composer at festivals such as IRCAM’s ManiFeste (Paris, 2013/2018), the ISCM World Music Days Festival (Tongyeong, 2016; Tallinn, 2019), and UNESCO International Rostrum of Composers(Tallinn, 2015). He has worked with ensembles such as Ensemble intercontemporain, ensemble mise-en, Ensemble Signal, eighth blackbird, Hong Kong New Music Ensemble, and Mivos Quartet, with performances in more than twenty countries. His works are published with ABLAZE Records, Darling’s Acoustical Delight, New Focus Recordings, PARMA Recordings, Phasma-Music, RMNClassical, BabelScores, SCI Journal of Music Scores, and Unfolding MusicPublishing (ASCAP).http://www.chintingchan.com

     2.  Boonif – Sicklical

    ‘Sicklical’ is woven entirely from samples that were recorded using objects and sounds found inside my parents’ house during lockdown (the ‘kickdrum’ is a book slamming on a table, the ‘shaker’ is a tub of cotton swabs shaken, etc) as well as field recordings from Toulouse. Some sounds were edited (re-pitched or given delay for example) whilst others were recorded straight in. The washing machine sound at the start was the inspiration for the piece. The cyclical, repetitive experience of relentless domesticity:staying indoors everyday.This contrasts with lively outdoor noises from  Toulouse – thoughts of escape.

    Boonif is a sound artist, trumpet player and producer based in Glasgow. Influences include low-fi synth pop, new wave UKjazz and Donna Summer.

    3. Faxen – Firedrake (Radio edit)

    Based on a multi-media installation, Firedrake (radio edit) examines attempts of the Chinese government to censor foreign short wave radio stations (also called jamming) and methods to avoid these interferences by manipulating radios. By constantly playing an one hour long piece of Chinese folk music entitled “Firedrake“, radio stations such as Voice of America, Radio Free Asia and BBC World Service are muted by the Chinese authorities. In order to bypass Chinese jamming DIY adaptations of radios, so called anti-jamming antennas are used. The multiple materials needed for these antennas are the starting point for an acoustic improvisation that can be heard in this piece. In addition, excerpts from an interview on jamming activities of the Chinese government, recordings from shortwave radio stations and the original Chinese Firedrake broadcast are part of this composition.

    4. Adam Paroussos – Pools of water (improvisation)

    This piece is an improvised sonic exploration into Swampcore. It features a homemade TV aerial chordophone, found tape recordings, bird samples and electronically processed Bb Trumpet.

    Adam Paroussos composes soundscapes, performative music and spaces of spontaneous collaboration. His sound work spans through film, theatre, dance and live art with frequent collaborators such as Sound Writing KollabPetriDelights and SubPhonics. Adam runs ongoing multi-disciplinary improvised events‘Crossspace’ and often uses self made instruments and sound costumes to engage audiences in solo works.

    While composing it I made a condition to myself that it had to be exactly 30 minutes long. Its core is made of field recordings from two completely different spaces, a resonant hall and a small fishing hut full of old fishing equipment. Alongside those two spaces there are recordings of improvised electronic feedback in different shapes.This piece is my exploration on accidents and the strive to overtake and transform them to something subtle in the form of a radio collage.

    Rasmus Östling is a Turku-based musician who combines various sound sources in his work. He aims to bring field recordings, synthetic sound and feedback together, creating a collage-esque composition and holding on to the critical elements of musique concrète.

    Overwhelming Waves is an essay in radio signal and radio noise. It is a collage of shortwave radio captures recorded by Jeff Gburek at various locations, some spanning 25 years, recomposed & combined with an spoken word commentary about the meaning of this listening process, the relationship of the earth to the ionosphere and the electro-magnetic resonance of the planet reflected in radiowaves where the individual listener is a creative participant, an electroreceptor and transmitter of consciousness.

    JeffGburek 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 WideWorld 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 radioworks 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.

    A legend about the beginnings and ends of radio, including the voice of Molly Donovan Higham.

    Kate Donovan is a practicing radio artist, facilitator and researcher based in Berlin. Her artistic practice deals with radio in an elemental sense, in terms of frequency,transmission and interconnectedness (but also disruption and interference). Her Radio show ‘elements’ is broadcast monthly on CoLaboRadio in Berlin.Since 2017, she’s been part of the Datscha Radio Berlin team. Currently she’s part of the research group “SENSING – the knowledge of sensitive media”, with a PhD project on expanded listening and radio art.

    2. BandaBase – Radio Clásic Española

    The piece was crafted during an improvisation session where under the backdrop of a pitched-down looped classical record the  radio was spontaneously tuned and merged through a constant alternation between both sources. Additionally, it includes light synthesizers dribbles and unintended Theremin sounds, adding to the piece an extra-terrestrial feel. The piece in itself plays with elements of randomness and chance, influenced by John Cage’s early radio works and James Tenney’s early tape manipulations. 

    Band Base is a loose free improvisation ensemble from Madrid, derived from members from Radio Relativa,music collectives Undermad and Real No Real and counter-cultural sonic research platform Unlocked Youth. Banda Base are Alejandro Martinez de Miguel (Sonidos del Espacio/ RadioRelative / Undermad), Juan Vacas ( Real No Real / Freak Caravan), Pablo Losa(Undermad, Radio Relativa) and Pablo Mirón (Real No Real/ UnlockedYouth).

    4. Dorota Blaszczak – Through Our Windows

    Stay-at-home in March 2020 was an obligation which I treated as an invitation for local observations including “listening through the windows” with an autonomous recorder on the roof. Two minutes soundfiles were recorded every ten minutes to preserve sound envelopes of each day.  „Through Our Windows” consists of a linear sequence of excerpts from recordings of each hour. One minute of the piece represents four hours of real time. The sound is not processed. Four parts are built from recordings of four days. A short introduction brings police announcements to stay at home.

    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.

  • William Kudahl - Notes on air

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

    more details

    A live radio broadcast from Bergen, Norway that— through a speaking voice and sound recordings—investigates and speculates in the materiality of air, its ability transport smell and sound, memory and emotion. But also talks about the air in Bergen, as a political loaded domain—an aerial territory. Norway is the only country in the world that has stopped its national radio transmissions on the FM-band, which opens up a list of poetic and political questions: What signals fills the air? Who decides what the air contains? And who has an interest in “cleaning” the air?

    I am an artist and writer studying an MA in fine arts in Bergen, Norway with a bachelor degree in electronic music composition. My work explores ephemerality, the ordinary, and hierarchies between what we consider being valuable, and it often takes the shape of radio broadcasts or written publications. My work in sound has been featured on Resonance.fm, Borealis Radio Space and The Lake Radio. I have been working as a radio host and curator at The Lake Radio since 2015.

    Magz Hall – Waves of Resistance – Tonnta Friotaíochta (10:54)

    Featuring the Voices of Alex Jueno and Máiréad Ni Chroinin.For Galway 2020 on the Island of Inis Oirr

    This broadcast is about how radio helps during times of isolation. I have been rethinking the human condition in terms of isolation at sea, and how visible and invisible boundaries can be broken via radio waves as an act of resistance and the legacy of radio art across boundaries. We are all kitchen table broadcasters now, online streaming means we have broken free with live streams across the globe for those with technology, power and the internet,However analogue radio is still a mighty force and affordable for many worldwide. My radiophonic poem draws on my own enforced isolation first through Brexit and then in lockdown. In the spirit of transnationalism it sends a broadcast from the phantom but once mapped island of Hy Brasil off the Irish coast, relaying a message of peace, hope and unity across all borders.  A new radiophonic work considering how radio helps us with forced isolation and how visible and invisible boundaries can be broken via radio waves as an act of resistance.

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

    11 November 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 3:30 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.

  • Dom Bouffard - Bzou

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

    more details

    From her origins as a symbol of teenage empowerment, against a backdrop of medieval werewolf (‘Bzou’) trials, Little Red Riding Hood has resurfaced as a morality tale; a metaphor for the Napoleonic Rhineland invasion; a Nazi propaganda tool; a werewolf’s lover and a New York vigilante. Dom Bouffard’s ‘sound movie’ weaves her many incarnations, together with texts such as the infamous ‘Hammer of Witches’ and Valerie Solanas’s SCUM manifesto, into a furious, impressionistic, sound journey through space and time, constructed from field recordings, modular electronics, contemporary classical and extreme guitar noise, sewn together with Penny Cliff’s disturbing poem ‘Red Line’.

    Dom Bouffard is a London-born, composer, performer and sound artist who cut his teeth in the early 2000s with UK rock bands Sona Fariq and Queen Adreena. Since then, he has explored all reaches of music’s perimeters, especially on the fringes of the performance art and dance scenes in Europe and New York. He has composed music for two Robert Wilson radio plays, Monsters of Grace II for SWR/hr2 and Tower of Babel for hr2/BBC (2018 Deutsche
    Hörspielpreis winner) and his own hr2 commissioned work WW1 was shortlisted for the Karl Szucka and Kriegsblinden prizes in 2016.

    Siri Black – all dead men on holiday (07:38)

    The piece is centred around an unsolved murder case and miscarriage of justice. The dripping of a tap and the creaking of floorboards become as crucial in the retelling of the crime as the shaking voices of the two characters, who share their misgivings and suspicions with a largely silent protagonist.

    The piece oscillates between fact and fiction, and is loosely based on an encounter with a retired barrister who was researching a murder that had occurred in my flat in 1908. The audio consists of field recordings and a collection of interviews.

    Siri Black is an artist and graduate of Glasgow School of Art BA Fine Art Painting and Printmaking. Her practice is the lovechild of pure anachronism and technophilia. She considers the sculptural qualities of film to test the intersections of the observer and the observee; image and image-carrier. Recently, her work has been shown at 16Nicholson Street (Glasgow),Lunchtime Gallery (Glasgow), and Wooosh (Dundee).

  • OOR_Scintilla - unknown thirds

    11 November 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 6:45 pm

    more details

    A new radiophonic composition continuing OOR_Scintilla’s dialogue around materialities of intimacy, distance, ‘live’ and recorded dynamics. Ancient spiritual apotropaic markers found within churches and standing stones or ritualistic gestures of contact are taken as reference points for seeking out unknown ‘third’ presences within landscapes, weathers, voices and the making and playing of instruments.

    The work incorporates a number of new sited and remotely realised performances recorded along waterways and forests in and beyond Edinburgh, as well as reworked/unheard material from OOR_Scintilla’s recent album project The Whiteadder Tapes situated in the Lammermuir Hills.

    voice, crwth, harmonium, violin, hurdy gurdy, gongs, DIY aeolian harps and horns, field recordings, infra- and ultra-sonics, hydrophonics, electromagnetics.

    OOR_Scintilla (Louisa Love + Clive McLachlan Powell) are an Edinburgh-based collaborative artist duo exploring the material poetics of sound, voice and place. They work improvisationally with numerous forms of resonance across processes of field recording, musical performance, sculptural production, objects, electronics and the voice to produce environmentally-responsive audio works exploring hybrid and unstable conditions. Drawing on ancient origins, local and folkloric narratives, they are interested in the gestures and enigmatic territories that interconnect bodies, places, histories, technologies and natural phenomena, engaging with sounding and listening as acts of embodied archaeological research. The duo have come to define themselves through a humble and intuitive approach which employs only the environment, the human voice, the physicality of materials and mostly traditional instruments as raw material. These form the basis for an unsettled sonic dialogue rooted in multichannel natures and the wilding of latent identities.

    In September 2020 OOR_Scintilla released The Whiteadder Tapes, an album of sonic archaeology compositions responding to the Whiteadder Water Valley, Scottish Borders, produced in conjunction with AOC Archaeology through a major project of new community-led excavational research (2019-20).

I’ve layered the sirens over one another, in the order in which they were recorded, leaving nothing out. I taped every night, from evening until dawn, documenting emergency sounds from several nursing homes and a COVID hospital nearby. The project changed after the murder of George Floyd on May 25. Over time, there were fewer ambulances and more police. Migratory morning birds gave way to news helicopters and demonstrations.

    The sphere of the water and the sphere of the wide space of the air and its inhabitants in the glacial valley of the german Elbe river are the sonorous resources of this electroacoustic composition. Just as the inner german border that once separated the area of the Elbe valley has been abolished, the boundaries of the metric division of time and the boundaries of the structured tonal space in “draught” are irrelevant. The wave is an essential principle of the
    composition in micro- and macro-form, in horizontal and vertical density: The short wave of the water droplet as well as the wave of the large, slowly moving swell, which steadily and inexorably passes by the person sitting on the shore.

  • Kunstradio 3 - PHNOM PENH FM: RE / DISC / OVER by Sopheak Sao

    11 November 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 8:45 pm

    more details

    The sound collage of the Cambodian documentary filmmaker and DJ Sopheak Sao is based on a live recording from March 2019 of an evening at Meta House Phnom Penh. In collaboration with the German music producers Chris Zippel (‘Genuine’), Jan Mueller (Prof. Kinski) and Meta House founder Nico Mesterharm.

    Sao is concerned with the role of women in Cambodian society, from the legendary Apsara dancers depicted on the bas-reliefs of Angkor Wat’s World Heritage Site, the farmers’ wives in the rice fields, the child soldiers of the “Killing Fields” to the modern, courageous businesswoman, mother and activist. Cambodian women of various age groups have their say. Young Khmer artists, bloggers and activists whom Sao Sopheak met in the course of her 10-year career as a filmmaker. Also featured are Cambodian television stars, women from mountain tribes in the north-east of the country and – posthumously – Cambodian rock diva Kak Channthy, who died in a car accident in 2018.

    Kak Channthy and Sopheak Sao shared a passion for Cambodian rock’n’roll from the 1960s, which they – like 80% of the total population born after 1979 – know only from audio recordings, tapes or radio broadcasts. Due to the genocide of the Khmer Rouge (1975-79) and three decades of civil war, there is almost no original vinyl left in the country. The songs of “Cambodian Elf” Sin Sisamouth and his contemporaries, most of whom were killed by the Communists, are still reminiscent of the older generation of better times when Cambodia’s King Sihanouk wanted to develop his country into “Switzerland of Southeast Asia” and Cambodian pop culture was very popular throughout the subcontinent.

    RE / DISC / OVER tries to explore how the Khmer live today in a way that honours the spirit and music of the “Golden Era”, including audio clips from Sopheak Sao’s films, field recordings, reworked record samples and live scratching.

    In cooperation with Medienwerkstatt Wien, Weltmuseum Wien and Meta House Phnom Phen supported by Goethe Institut.

    This hour is dedicated to the cult of connection; allowing listeners, through an initiation rite, to connect to the invisible forces of radio waves. The dance of the spirit will give rise to disembodiment in order to reach the land of voices and travel in a space parallel to our perceptions.

    Jonathan Frigeri is a sound artist, radio producer, sound collagist, and electronic musician. As a sound artist he is mainly interested in revealing hidden sonic layers of reality, to open spaces of imagination. In his work for radio he incorporates the creative process, the radio device and the space between the transmitter and the receiver, emphasising the space inbetween; between here and there.

  • Jordan Dykstra - A Known Unknown

    more details

    A Known Unknown attempts to sonically represent celestial events (Gravity,Moon, Planet, Star, Stellar Nursery, Pulsar, Quasar, Constellation, Nebula, and Impact Event) — treating all sounds as moments within physical boundaries — via through-composed “Known” sections and structured-improvisatory “Unknown” sections. Because the subject matter which the sounds represent is always moving no sound is perceived as stagnated or accented, instead the sound overlaps in a fluid manner. These parameters result in sounds that react, morph, die, and birth new events.

    Jordan Dykstra (b. 1985, USA) is a Brooklyn-based composer and violist working in the fields of chamber music and media scoring. He received his undergraduate degree from the California Institute of the Arts and his masters degree — which focused on the connection between astronomy and microtonality — from Wesleyan University. In September2020 New World Records released a composer portrait album entitled The Arrow of Time.
