  • different time different place different pitch: Something is Going to Happen - Dani Gal & Achim Lengerer

    10th November 2017 @ 1:00 am - 2:00 am

    programme/artist information

    The violent, xenophobic riots in Rostock-Lichtenhagen shortly after the unification of
    Germany. With Wolfgang Richter and Cornelia Schmalz Jacobsen.

    A series of radio programs By Dani Gal and Achim Lengerer. Originally commissioned by Documenta 14.

    The radio is an acousmatic instrument. Listeners do not see the origin of the sound,
    their experience is shaped both by the their own interpretation, and the manipulation
    of the producer in a political system.

    Our programs work on the space between documentary and Musique concrète.
    Each show focuses on political events that are connected to acoustic events. This
    creates an acousmatic documentary where the programs become sound-objects.
    The programs response to the ‘image saturated society’ discourse, by asking what is
    the function of sound as a document in times of live video feeds that can be broadcast
    by anyone.

    Dani Gal (born 1975, Jerusalem) lives and works in Berlin. He studied at the Bezalel
    Academy for Art and Design in Jerusalem; the Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende
    Künste Städelschule in Frankfurt; and the Cooper Union in New York. His flms and
    works have been shown widely, including: Documenta 14, 54th Venice Biennale
    (2011), The Istanbul Biennale (2011), The New Museum New York (2012),
    Kunsthalle St. Gallen Swizerland (2013), The Jewish museum New York (2014),
    Berlinale Forum Expanded (2014), Kunsthaus Zurich (2015) Kunsthalle Wien (2015)
    And more.

    Achim Lengerer works on political questions of speech and language that he
    thematizes in performances, radio plays or spatializes within installations and
    publications. Lengerer founded different collaborative projects such as freitagsküche
    in Frankfurt a. M. and voiceoverhead, with Dani Gal. Since 2009 Lengerer runs the
    Berlin based showroom and publishing house Scriptings. Different Artists are invited
    – all of which are working with the formats of script and text within their processes of
    production. Lengerer is currently working on his Ph.D. at Goldsmiths, University of
    London, UK, on the format of the rehearsal as an actual format for socio-political
    negotiations.

  • Foundsoundscape - Janek Schaefer

    10th November 2017 @ 2:00 am - 7:00 am

    programme/artist information

    It’s been 20 years exactly since I created ‘Recorded Delivery’, which quietly collected sounds of the inner realm of the Post Office in March 1995. Back then I could only use cassettes to capture sound, and there was no internet or digital in my world. Two decades later the technical options are staggering, but simplicity and calm is more in demand than ever before.

    Foundsoundscape was inspired by the very first Digital Radio station in the UK, that simply played a recording of a rural location. Radio you could just leave running to add a peaceful ambience to your environment indoors. It heralded a new media paradigm, as digital broadcasting offered more capacity than requred for the first time, and that space needed filling. At the same time on TV, Channel 4 was broadcasting Big Brother live 24hours, and at night I loved to tune-in my analogue TV sets all over the house, and the shed, so I could hear the housemates gently sleeping as I worked through the night. Since then infomercials, and gambling TV have taken over, and I greatly miss that sense of real-time space, that does not demand your attention. Foundsoundscape quietly underscores your environment, by creating new ones from others.

    Radio is special as it was the first medium that could be experienced by many people in many places, all at the same time. Foundsoundscape.com is an online radio station that streams live 24hours a day, which can now be broadcast to people all over the globe. Using over 1000 calm & curious location recordings captured by 100+ recordists, the sounds were simply edited, and then played back three at a time at various volumes in shuffle mode, and the result is never the same twice. You often hear the edges of time as files begin or stop playing mid flow. If you listen ever so carefully you can also hear me working in the studio at the end of the garden late at night, as I have a live mic feeding into the mix. I sometimes like to work with tv radio & music playing, to absorb information, give me ideas, create and share. Email me for a shout-out!

    My hope is that others will find foundsoundscape enjoyable and leave it running all day & all night long, just like a radio! It’s as simple as that, with one click. A salute to serendipity and shared sonic space. Bookmark it. Play it in rooms around the house. Share it . . Take a break . . .
    Every day is different.
    Happy Daze.

    “It’s lovely Janek. I really like listening to it.
    Well done! I’ll link it to my friends.” [Brian Eno]

    Massive thanks to everyone who has helped make this possible.
    Commissioned by the Sonic Art Research Unit, Oxford Brookes, UK
    Programming by Efthymios Chatzigiannis & David Tinapple
    Curatorial assistance by Holly Jarvis
    special thanks to Paul Whitty

    List of the 100+ audio recorders sending sound from every corner of the globe
    Selection was from an open call for contributions, via my newslist, & online, & in print media. The first people to send in sound were chosen by serendipity,
    and I curated and edited the content. Future participation is by invitation only.

  • Shorts 5

    10th November 2017 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am

    programme/artist information

    1. Chelidon Frame – Low Rise (Blackout)
    2. B D Owens – Dìlseach
    3. Dixie Treichel – Becoming
    4. Gael Tissot – Reflets Vibrations
    5. Bjorn Hatterud – Prostitute asks God for help, you won’t believe what happens next
    6. Bláithín MacDonnell – Something, in parts
    7. Adam Pierce – The Jay Pt. II

    1. Chelidon Frame – Low Rise (Blackout)

    “Low Rise (Blackout)” is an eight minute piece, entirely made up by using recordings of medium wave signals and synthesized sounds. The result is a mist of noises in which sometimes a word or a sound pops up, making itself recognizable. All this rarefied magma will eventually concentrate itself in a dense soundscape of radio noises.

    Chelidon Frame is an experimental electronic project from Milano, Italy. He works with drones, found objects, shortwave radio signals, prepared guitars and looped soundscapes.
Since 2013, he released songs for the compilations promoted by “IFAR”, dealing with Musique Concrète. In 2014, “Antartica” was chosen for Saout Radio’s installation “here.now.where?”, premiered during the V Marrakech Biennale. He also worked on the first and third edition of “Waywords and Meansigns”, an unabridged recreation of “Finnegans Wake”.
In 2017 is selected for an artistic residence at the San Fedele Centre, Milan.
He released three studio albums and one EP.

    2. B D Owens – Dìlseach

    Dìlseach is an experimental voice composition; an imagined soundscape from the perspective of a cairn terrier (Dìlseach). This work is dedicated to the memory of Isa MacLeod and Dìlseach, from Kyle of Lochalsh.

    B. D. Owens is a multi-disciplinary artist based near Helensburgh. He develops his conceptual ideas while walking and writing. Text, layered interpretation and language play are threads that run through his work. Currently, he is examining and challenging the binary doctrines of: Winners & Losers, Losing & Finding and Sameness & Difference. He is graduating with Distinction from the Art, Society & Publics MFA Programme at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, November 2017.

    3. Dixie Treichel – Becoming

    A soundscape about the universe at large and my participation in it. The piece is a mixture of original electronic music, found sounds and field recordings. Included on the album EROS, released by 7MNS Music label
A part of CIRCE: The Black Cut Project by Anna Stereopoulou, Athens, Greece It also aired on FSK Radio, Doctore Xyramat show, Hamburg, 2017

    Dixie Treichel is a composer, sound artist, theatrical sound designer and radio broadcaster. She is a sonic explorer who likes creating with any and all sounds.
Dixie creates experimental sound art, radio art, audio documentaries, field recordings, acousmatic and electro-acoustic music. She also works with artists in multidisciplinary fields and performs experimental music. Her compositions and sound art have been heard internationally on radio, in art galleries, experimental sound art festivals, new music concerts, theaters and streaming festivals. She is based in Minneapolis, MN, USA.

    4. Gael Tissot – Reflets Vibrations

    Reflets-Vibrations (Reflections-vibrations) is the story of a musical development of these two words. Reflets, the first part, is a premonition of what is to come: the sounds of the second part are reused in a much more softer and hidden way. The later part (Vibrations), by contrast, is full of a percussive energy. A danced version of this piece also exists.

    Gaël Tissot studied musicology and composition in Toulouse, before being admitted to the composition class of the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Lyon. Since 2011, he is a member of the artistic collective éOle in Toulouse (France). He is the author of several international musicological publications. Gaël Tissot was awarded several prizes: Mauricio Kagel 2012 (Vienna) 2nd Prize, Prix résidence 2008 at the Concours international de musique et d’art sonore électroacoustiques de Bourges, etc. His music is played in France as well as in other countries: ISCM World Music Days 2016, Nuits bleues, Tage für neue Musik (Darmstadt), festival Occitània (Toulouse), University of Cologne…

    5. Bjorn Hatterud – Prostitute asks God for help, you won’t believe what happens next

    This is a sound piece made up of sounds from my own library. My goal with the piece is to make a landscape for metaphysical thinking. The title is from an evangelical christian YouTube video. The piece is a small protest against metaphysics and God being reduced to politics and materialistic greed.

    Bjørn Hatterud (born 1977) is a Norwegian sound artist, art curator, critic and writer. He has released music in more than 15 countries, and worked with artists like Maja Ratkje, Conrad Schnitzler and Lasse Marhaug. He is an independent art curator, and art critic. His writing on contemporary art, music, sexuality and working class culture has been printed in most Norwegian news papers and cultural journals. Hatterud lives and works in Oslo, Norway.

    6. Bláithín MacDonnell – Something, in parts

    In a room above a pub, ‘something in parts’ attempts to root narrative in ideas of displacement, storytelling and to rejoin at once disparate but connected parts. The narrative folds and unfolds itself as objects, places and people are assembled and reassembled. Highly descriptive images of locations and rooms attempt to place the audience in the specifics of place both rooting and un-rooting the listener in their current location. The audience is taken into different spaces through layers which appear to be at once fictional and factual.

    Bláithín Mac Donnell’s practice explores the relationship between place, person, narrative and fact. Storytelling is used as a way to ground an intangible image and relocate it in the now. The act of storytelling is performed and intertwines with the idea of image making itself so that the narrative becomes images in the mind. The viewer faced with a one person narrative is forced to call upon their own visual realm and remake the image within their own mind so that the space in which the story is told becomes the image. Bláithín completed her BA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths, her MA at The Royal College of Art. Recent performances include The Function Room a gallery above a pub, Tate Modern, a former nucleur bunker in Whitechapel and live on radio for Echo, KtoK fm. Most recently she has presented text pieces at ASP Glasgow.

    7. Adam Pierce – The Jay Pt. II

    ‘The Jay”

    He once shot a bluejay through the eye, with a ray from the sun
    Turned off he opened his head to the sky, and laughed at the god’s almanac

    My how I remember that day, in the moon’s great equilibrium;
    forests were at every door
    and I’d walk out to the darkening ship.

    Days tallied on, to the months and to the years
    before long, he would bait the jay
    and look to it’s eye
    shifting in the lilting sun.

    Moons would appear, dancing through the neptune blue fields
    once again, praying for something more,
    for the ire of the night sake was too black.

    Found sound, not field recordings. An audio diary of the images, instruments, and nuances of daily life.

    I have been active in the avant garde music community in Michigan, USA for over a decade, as a solo artist and a part of many collectives, releasing numerous recorded works through many different formats and performing on a regular basis across a diverse set of gallery spaces/venues. Over the past year I have been focusing solely on recording a work titled: ‘Music in the Moon Beam,’ which is an audio diary that began the winter of 2017 and will end the spring of 2018. The audio work will be accompanied by a dream diary compiled over the course of the same time.
    What interests me is recorded music as sound work, to be absorbed across multiple formats and in diverse environments, not restricted to any contemporary preconceptions of audio consumption.

    Works composed primarily with voice, guitar, m

     


  • World Travels within One's Mind - Jemnastique

    10th November 2017 @ 9:00 am - 9:40 am

    programme/artist information

    The track starts with a field recording of my university campus a few days before the fall semester started. Then it goes into a recording of the main square in Krakow, Poland I made while visiting family over the summer, Finally I go back to the recording I started with. I added sound that I thought could compliment these recording: nature sounds at the beginning since the university recording is somewhat quiet, busier sounds in the middle, and a soft end. This track represents all the sounds of our world mixing together to create each person’s individual soundscape.

    My name is Daniel Jemiolo. My artist name is Jemnastique. I am in the early stages of my music making journey. I make music using field recordings. The field recordings that I use are a combination of personal recordings and ones found on freesound.org. When I make my music, I have a basic idea that I want to try out. I improvise with idea and see what comes out. I only use effects on the sound if I believe that it will enhance the project in some way. In the future I plan to added more produced sounds using the techniques I learn in my computer music classes.

     


  • Catastrophe - Astor

    10th November 2017 @ 9:40 am - 10:00 am

    programme/artist information

    Assembled from phone recordings made in London and Stockholm throughout summer 2015. Commissioned by ‘Ears Have Ears’ FBi Radio, Sydney, Australia. First aired Oct 2015. Mastered by Giuseppe Ielasi

    Astor is the moniker of Mark Harwood, Australian publisher, event curator and sound artist who is now residing in London, United Kingdom. Under this guise he deploys a wide variety of techniques including field recording, musique concrete and electronics. All of these forms are approached with a sense of bypassing the cliches embedded within in order to coerce a sound world which is simultaneously contemporary, foreign, intense, beautiful, unsettling and engaging. Mark has released 2 acclaimed LP’s on Kye (USA) with his third, Lina in Nida on his own Penultimate Press imprint.

  • i think we have something in common - Alexander Martinz

    10th November 2017 @ 10:45 am - 11:00 am

    programme/artist information

    “i think we have something in common” is a modular multimedia work examplifying the transformation and extension of a given structure through a feedback system. It is an ongoing project that isolates intimate parts of the human body and recomposes them digitally. The audiovisual results get published at: https://de.xhamster.com/user/trypophile where they become part of the pornographic maelstrom. The necessary profile, its avatar, the comments and interactions are a vital, ever-developing part of the project. They shed light on certain forms of discourse, the codes of the text and the zoning of the system. The audioversion of the project focuses on three characters of the project and situates them in a drone environment.

    Alexander Martinz, born 1979 in Klagenfurt, studied Electroacoustic Composition and Transmedia Art. He teaches at the University of Applied Arts, lives and works as a composer and media artist in Vienna, is the voice of Captain Knife and the bassist of Running Fetus. He is interested in the different logics and traditions of audiovisual media as well as in their correlations. Complex transformations of popcultural material can be considered a foundation of his work.

  • Is It Worth It? - Allan Whyte and Louise Wilson

    10th November 2017 @ 11:00 am - 11:30 am

    programme/artist information

    ‘Is It Worth It? is a new sound piece which aims to draw attention to the vacuous political rhetoric encompassing modern day environmental issues. By manipulating political speech, distorting natural sounds and creating new synthesised instruments, the work deals with threats facing the environment, the lack of political will to make change and media’s acceptance of mistruths. The effects of climate breakdown, which include erratic seasonal patterns and increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide, have been proven to alter breeding and migrational behaviours of birds, cause bleaching and destruction of coral reefs, and pollute our water and air. This reality has been borne out of an economic structure which exploits finite natural resources in search of unsustainable capital gain.’

    This is a collaboration between Allan Whyte and Louise Wilson. Both graduated from Glasgow University with a degree in Zoology. Allan worked for a nearly six years in environmental policy before leaving to pursue a career in the arts. He has recently received a masters degree from Glasgow School of Art in Sound for the Moving Image. Louise moved to the Netherlands to do a short course in sound art and field recording at the Institute of Sonology in the Hague, before commencing a Masters degree in Ecology at Glasgow, from which she will graduate this November. Her research focused on the use of underwater sound as a tool for assessing the health of rivers

  • NM,SK - Sisters Akousmatica

    10th November 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm

    programme/artist information

    Julia Drouhin and Phillipa Stafford, as Sisters Akousmatica, investigate mysterious radio broadcasts known as “the Silent Key”.

    Radio: drag the dial across frequencies at any given time, any given place and you will hear a cacophony of sounds. Static, pops and crackles, whistles, the tap, tap tap of the world and the universe going about its electromagnetic business. In between those sounds are stations: broadcasts that are music, news, chatter, cryptic messages and espionage. Stretching out around the world in a network of terrestrial communication, bouncing off the heaviside and landing back again to be collected by radio-listeners – in cars and in kitchens. Sisters Akousmatica are always listening – seeking out the strange broadcasts destined for…? Well, who knows. NM, SK begins to examine some of the recordings they have made in their quest to research “the silent key” – a series of broadcast messages that they discovered in the winter of 2017.

    Pip Stafford and Julia Drouhin create curatorial and written international projects concerning collective radio practices, auditory-spatial exploration and the intersection of gender and emergent art forms, to support, promote and cultivate women’s voices in public space. Focusing on the concept of akousma – sound removed from its source – their projects provide a space to examine the possibilities of invisible and ephemeral radiophonic world. They were the recipients of 2016 Next Wave Festival’s Emerging Curator Program presenting Sisters Akousmatica, a women street radio acousmonium with 8 sound artists performing and 2 curators walking for 7 hours in 7 public spaces in Melbourne, in partnership with Liquid Architecture, Signal, 3CR and The Channel.

    Sisters Akousmatica has since become an artistic and curatorial umbrella, awarded by the Arts Tasmania’s Artist Investment Program 2016 to produce a retreat for women sound artists, provide workshops (crystal radio and FM transmitter building) and develop new work. Pip and Julia perform as well as an improvised duo Super Occult Cosmophon using radios as instruments, amplified mineral samples, lovingly re-kindled transistor parts and looped sources in acts of sound divination and occult listening to conjure delicate spirit noises and unleash domestic imps. In 2018 Sisters Akousmatica will present XYL as part of Mona Foma in Tasmania.

    1. Slugs of Eternity – Yugamorph

    “Yugamorph” Released by the “Cian Orbe” netlabel

    Our names “horridus” and “David M Paganin”

    “horridus”, the driving force behind “devilsclub”, is based in Cascadia, Oregon, USA. horridus has anonymously created experimental electronic music since 2012, although his musical experimentations date back far earlier. Sounds of unbridled complexity emerge from his Hordijk modular system. He distances himself from boring rules, censorship, servitude to money, and the illusion of selling art.

    “David M. Paganin” is from West Footscray, Victoria, Australia. The expressive musical themes that interest him relate to human freedom in a post-modern world. Such themes include alienation, psychological repression, the existential vacuum, obsession, rage, absurdity, mourning, regret, neurosis, depression, death and the concept of self. All sounds are intended to be ultimately uplifting, affirmations of human vitality and spirit.

    2. Radio Noise Duo – Antennas instead of roots

    The track is a result of searching for sound structures based mainly on radio noise. The combination of several analogue radios let us produce interference which is controlled by additional devices. The idea is based on searching for various dependence between real-time radio noise and its connections to space, so it becomes a resonator which affects the track sound each time it’s performing.

    Radio Noise Duo (Tomasz Misiak and Marcin Olejniczak from Poland) looking for inspiration in electricity, radio noise and amplified everyday objects. Earlier the musicians were associated with groups like kalEka (Misiak) or Monopium (Olejniczak), but they also had some solo projects. Radio Noise Duo is a part of Radio Noise Orchestra- still continuing initiative focused on radio noise in various artistic activities.

    3. Vincent Eoppolo – Virtual Pleasures 1

    I view my works as a synthesis of various sound art traditions including musique concrete, acousmatic music and radio art.

    In my work I strive to present brief moments of the world we are living in. Society in the continuing process of realizing itself. Our relationship with each other, with technology, our morality, spirituality, sexuality, our anxieties and fears. In many ways my works are like sociological and psychological commentaries. My work has been featured on Bernard Clarke’s program Nova on RTE’s Lyric FM, Phaune Radio from Montpellier, France as well as Radio Art International on CHOQ Radio in Montreal. My works were recently presented at the 2017 New York City Electro-Acoustic Music Festival.

    4. Vile Plumage – Daphne and The Baron are Stranded at the Station: Episode 1

    “Daphne and The Barron are Stranded at the Station” is the first episode of a soap. A melodrama. A voyage to the depths. The murk. Drug cults. Inter-dimensional beings. Demonic possession. The dark movements of a Parish Council. Grim business in a market town.

    Vile Plumage’ is a collective consisting of Duke Burnett and Peter ‘Bunny’ Cropwell , with occasional input from the ‘Burselm Community Radio Players’.

    Our primary focus is the ‘reality oscillation’ – there are no straight lines or static points. Strange myths and urban banality exist at precisely the same co-ordinates. The crowd. You think you recognise those faces… but most of them are doppelgangers. We live in an area called The Burselm. Every Sunday we trudge around the streets, sometimes sheltering in Bingo Hall doorways. Always with the record button pushed firmly down. Sound is transferred directly, MAGICALLY to tape. We butter these recordings with paranormal research. Strictly local. Strictly. These sounds are bashed and boiled into radio shapes. Melodrama. Soap opera. Pulp.

    5. Marcelo Armani – Bill Dá-U-Oh

    Bill Dá-U-Oh is one of the four pieces that integrate the sound installation Concerto Diplomático #0917 (Diplomatic Concert), which was shown between September and November at Adelina Galery, São Paulo, Brazil. This piece is composed of the appropriation of fragments extracted from the youtube channel of Donald Trump’s political campaign speeches in which he talks about the construction of the wall on the US-Mexico border. To these fragments, are incorporated sounds and noises recorded by the own artist during a performance that consisted of breaking a wooden wall of 8m of length with blows of ax.

    Marcelo Armani (Carlos Barbosa, 1978) is a sound artist, improv musician and electroacoustic producer. He has recorded recordings in Latin America and is currently represented by label Luscinia Discos, Granada, Spain and Adelina Galeria, São Paulo, Brazil. It is projected in the field of visual arts from 2011, participating in shows with a sound installations projects and artistic residencies by countries of Latin America, Europe, Africa and the United States. He currently lives and works in Canoas, RS, where he also works in sound production for film and video art.

    6. Patrick Blake – Piatti

    An acousmatic piece composed in November of 2015. The piece explores granular sound worlds within conventional musical instruments. Constructed out of recordings of cymbals and electric guitar, transformed and re-purposed, the sounds are layered with field recordings and synthesised tones. Recognisable and familiar sounds can be heard amongst the layers of the piece, developing into distorted and alien sounds.

    Patrick Blake is a student at the University of Glasgow, currently pursuing a Masters degree in Electronics with Music. During his studies, within and without the University, he has explored various arenas of experimental music – from jazz and leftfield pop to electro-acoustic performance and composition. His main musical output can be heard with the bands Neuro Trash and Expert Group, both of which have new material to be released online this year.

    7. Lia Mazzari – Vigiljoch, Chairlift & Whip

    Vigiljoch: Chairlift and Whip is the outcome of two field recordings taken in the Italian Alps in August 2017. It is the first document of her research into whip cracking.

    Lia Mazzari is a musician, producer and translator based in London. Her work involves live performance and recorded material using field recordings, cello, whip and text. Her event series Silver Road reinforces interdisciplinary experiments in sound and vision and was based in a steel water tank in South-East London until March 2017.

     


  • Review Show - Alasdair Fisher

    10th November 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm

    programme/artist information

    Much modern art, music, theatre, tv, film, literature and radio is marked by a certain slickness, competence and professionalism I often dislike and masks deeper failings. Due to the availability of software and digital recording equipment it is hard to avoid the temptation to achieve this. I wanted to do something marked by a lack of this. Following Borges, Carlyle etc I did this in the form of a review show of imaginary works of varying quality done as much as possible in one take using no software.

    Alasdair Fisher is a writer and actor from Glasgow. He has contributed regularly to Lights Out Listening Group events. He appeared on the recent Noise Against Racism compilation under the name Slave Diet.

  • LENGHEDIVACJE Ep.3 - Renato Rinaldi

    10th November 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 5:30 pm

    programme/artist information

    Ten stories for the radio – Five collected stories elaborated into five sound tales

    Project by Renato Rinaldi Production and organisation by Hybrida Pieces by Slavek Kwi – Eric la casa – Antje Vowinckel – Ward Weis – Giuseppe Ielasi Funded by Arlef / Agjenzie Regjonâl pe Lenghe Furlane Aired by Frioulian local Radio Onde Furlane

    Language is a sound, before being a meaning, and it’s the first human element in a soundscape. The stories have then been selectet according to the ability of the teller in using the language in a dramatic way more than for the stories themselves. For each story we have commissioned a music piece in which the recorded tale had to be the core of the composition. Such transformation could only be possible in the hands of people who doesn’t have access to the meaning of the words. That is why we have chosen musicians the furthest away possible from Friulian geography, culture and language so as to have them relate with a new, as far as this is possible today, sound context.

    The Friulian language is a mosaic of units, more often micro-units, territorial, each one with its own linguistic nuances and peculiar sound. The development of such peculiarities is the result of a long and continuous exchange with the environment, which each community entertains while setting its roots in a certain area. Language is a sound, before being a meaning, and it’s the first human element in a soundscape. The project Lenghedivacje endeavours at bringing out the sound of the Friulian language, throughout the collection of recorded material concerning historical or personal events. The stories have then been selected according to the ability of the teller in using the language in a dramatic way more than for the stories themselves. The events told are of course significant also as testimony but are especially extraordinary for the way in which they are “spoken” because they are unique and unique is the language they are using. Inside these stories there is a rich musical potential but in order to bring it out we have pushed the language over the wall of sense. For each story we have commissioned a music piece in which the recorded tale had to be the core of the composition. Such transformation could only be possible in the hands of people who could appreciate exclusively the sound of the language thus deprived of its dramatic element linked to sense. That is why we have chosen musicians the furthest away possible from Friulian geography, culture and language so as to have them relate with a new, as far as this is possible today, sound context. The composers selected for this task are people who routinely work with the sound of language and who use the radio as a means of expression investigating its communication possibilities. Each one of them was asked to work on a music composition starting exclusively form the recorded material assigned to them. The result is a series of compositions created from the phonemes (sound bits) of the Friulian language though enjoyable also away from its understanding.

    Collected tales
    3a – Ermes Pellizzari – Interview collected in Preone (UD)
    He tells his account of the earthquake in september 1976 when he was woken up by a tremour and was then rescued by his dog.

    Elaborated into 3b – Linguamoto by Antje Vowinckel – (Germany)
    When I listened to the text I didn’t understand anything in the beginning. After two or three times of listening I understood some basic Italian words and I got a hint on the general issue of the recording. But felt helpless and wanted to make a completely abstract musical piece by fragmentizing all the speech. But that would also mean to destroy the characteristic expression of the language. And I wanted to keep it! 
 So I decided to keep single words or phrases that seemed to be somehow dramaturgical keywords or phrases to the narration. And instead of manipulating the language I started to feature these keywords by isolating them, I wanted to free certain words that have a particular melody or human expression from its less significant surrounding. So I only kept single words with lots of breaks that evoke a rythm and emphasize their melodical potential. After introducing the material in this way and show its melodical side I felt able to add melodical material that stams all from pitching a single “huu”. Now even longer phrases can be heard as musical material and are integrated in a general musical concept. 
I tried to emphasize the musical charasteristics of the Friul language but also tried to destillate and keep dramaturgic turning points of the original story. I found that the concept shows parallels to Manga aesthetic where you have fragments of phrases that are blown up, isolated from the story and integrated in a visual design.

    Renato Rinaldi studied acting, composition and electronic music. He has worked extensively in theater, first as an actor and then as a sound artist. As a musician he has composed music for theatre, radio plays and documentaries, video and sound installations. He is interested in composition applied to the relationship between sound /environment. He has also produced radio plays, documentaries and radio reportages, aired by Radio RAI and Radio France. The title literally means cow tongue but it refers to a edible plant: Rumex patientia, known as patience dock, “garden patience”, “herb patience”, or “monk’s rhubarb”, is a herbaceous perennial plant species of the genus Rumex, belonging to the family Polygonaceae. In spring it is often consumed as a leaf vegetable in Southern Europe.

    programme/artist information

    Julia Drouhin and Phillipa Stafford, as Sisters Akousmatica, investigate mysterious radio broadcasts known as “the Silent Key”.

    Radio: drag the dial across frequencies at any given time, any given place and you will hear a cacophony of sounds. Static, pops and crackles, whistles, the tap, tap tap of the world and the universe going about its electromagnetic business. In between those sounds are stations: broadcasts that are music, news, chatter, cryptic messages and espionage. Stretching out around the world in a network of terrestrial communication, bouncing off the heaviside and landing back again to be collected by radio-listeners – in cars and in kitchens. Sisters Akousmatica are always listening – seeking out the strange broadcasts destined for…? Well, who knows. NM, SK begins to examine some of the recordings they have made in their quest to research “the silent key” – a series of broadcast messages that they discovered in the winter of 2017.

    Pip Stafford and Julia Drouhin create curatorial and written international projects concerning collective radio practices, auditory-spatial exploration and the intersection of gender and emergent art forms, to support, promote and cultivate women’s voices in public space.
    Focusing on the concept of akousma – sound removed from its source – their projects provide a space to examine the possibilities of invisible and ephemeral radiophonic world.

  • Giallo - ETC

    10th November 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 7:00 pm

    programme/artist information

    In English-speaking countries, the term “giallo” often refers to the Italian film genre, a particular style of Italian-produced murder mistery thriller-horror film that usually blends the atmosphere and suspense of thriller fiction with elements of horror fiction and erotocism.
    The genre developed in the mid-to-late 1960s, peaked in popularity during the 1970s, and subsequently declined over the next few decades. It has been considered to be a predecessor to, and significant influence on, the later American slsher film genre.
    The word “Giallo” is Italian for “yellow” The term was derived from a series of cheap paperback mystery novels, popular in post-fascist Italy, which were published with yellow covers.

    The ETC project combining electro-acoustic experiments and synthetic modulations.
    Soft noise, the collateral effect of an urban environment on individuals from a post-industrial society or as many opportunities to transcribe the unspeakable to the sound plane, et cetera et cetera, the worst remains to come … ETC has toured in Europe, China cetera et cetera

  • Uhren - Gregory Kramer

    10th November 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

    programme/artist information

    Uhren is an album of twelve, individually composed, five-minute clocks, totaling one hour. Using field recordings, found sounds, instruments and an alphabet to percussion converter, each piece references time in content or structure. Some of the sonic materials used include recordings of a prehistoric, winter solstice-measuring monument, a mnemonic device for remembering the number of days in months, two cemeteries, an exhibit of extinct animals, a diner at lunchtime and the first five minutes past midnight.

    Gregory Kramer is a multidisciplinary artist working with sound and space. Taking inspiration from his archaeological curiosity of abandoned places and his interest in mythology, he searches for ghosts among the ruins and seeks to unearth evidence of forgotten histories through sound. His sound work uses field recordings, found materials, electronics, instruments and radio transmissions. His work was featured in the Sonom International Sound Art Festival, and he recently composed for a dance piece performed at the Setia Darma Museum of Masks and Puppetry in Bali. He has album releases on Impulsive Habitat and International Winners.

  • Wondering Soul -Alexander Storey & Gordon Richy Carey

    10th November 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

    programme/artist information

    A live-to-air performance from CCA Glasgow. Tickets are free from CCA box office.

    http://cca-glasgow.com/programme/radiophenia2017

    Wondering Soul explores radio broadcasting materially through live performance, looking at alternative forms of how audio is broadcasted or made public as well investigating the fringes of radio, its liveness, glitches, and ghostly interferences. This exploration or experimentation forms the backdrop to an investigation of sonic phenomena on the edge of human perception which are often characterised in the human mind as supernatural, weird or the eerie. In particular we are focusing on the ghost and the algorithm as similar forms who’s histories might inform an understanding of each other, telling a wider story of broadcast technology and human intimacy.

    Alexander Storey Gordon makes drawings, film, text, performative and event based works that articulate the tensions between our bodies, our environment, and others. Crucially, looking at the way these agitations both in the social body and the individual mind are mediated and played back to us through the structures of film and literature.

    He graduated with a degree in Printmaking from Grays School of Art in 2010 and has since exhibited widely both within the UK and Internationally. recent exhibitions have included A Apoheny, Intermedia Gallery, CCA, Glasgow, (solo) 2017; Suppose there is A, ICA Singapore (group) 2017; A P A R I Ç Ã O, Phosphorus, Sao Paulo (solo) 2015; and Be Vigilant Dear Friends, Because You Never Know When Your Going To Have Your Eyes Gouged Out, Glasgow Project Rooms 2014 (solo).

    Richy Carey is a sound artist and composer. Broadly speaking, his work looks about the way we listen to film, thinking about what the sound of an object or material is, not the sound it makes. He’s currently doing AHRC funded PhD research into the relationship between materiality, language and film sound at Glasgow University.

    Recent works and collaborations include Sonorous Objects, with Lauren Gault and Mark Bleakley, Memo to Spring, for Sarah Rose (Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, 2017), Special Works School, with Bambitchell (Gallery TPW, Toronto, 2017), Forms of Action for Asunción Motions Gordo (CCA Glasgow. 2017), “You’re saying exactly how I feel” with Tom Walker (TAP Gallery, 2016), There’s something happening somewhere, with Carrie Skinner (Tron Theatre, Glasgow, 2016) and INCONGRUOUS DIVA for Cara Tolmie and Will Holder (British Art Show, John Hansard Gallery, Southampton, 2016).

    Music and the Shadow People is a feature length radio play adapted from a text of the same name by composer William Parker. The radio version was produced by Andrew O’Connor for KunstRadio in Austria. The story takes place in a world that is for the most part ruled, dominated, and being destroyed by HE, a world built on lies, a world out of sync with the realities of the universe. It centers around two main characters Stockyman a revolutionary and wanted man, and Johnson Wordless a conscripted soldier in HIS army, as they both seek passage to the “Tone World”.

    Andrew O’Connor independent radio producer, and sound artist based in Toronto. His work reflects an interest in sound, storytelling, and transmission, and explores these ideas through formal broadcast radio as well as installation art, sound design, and pirate radio. Andrew’s work has been featured across the CBC Radio network, syndicated internationally and was most recently presented at the UK International Radio Drama Festival. He currently hosts and produces a weekly pirate radio show called Disco 3000 on his own low watt FM station Parkdale Pirate Radio.

A third and final iteration of the piece is being exhibited as a sound installation at the Angus-Hughes gallery in Hackney throughout November.

    James Torrance is an audio engineer and occasional radio producer, often found dabbling in the more confused corners of sound art and non-music. He has spent a number of years documenting sounds from London’s modernist housing estates and regularly collaborates with artists and film-makers. Amongst other meanderings, his current solo work presents a bricolage of found sound, phonography and hörspiele oddities.
