  • Radio Concrete - Hagai Izenberg feat. Daniel Meir

    11th November 2017 @ 1:00 am - 2:00 am

    programme/artist information

    Radio Concrete is an ongoing experimental sound project which combines field recordings together with radio broadcasting.

    It is an exaggerated personal interpretation of sounds that we are exposed to every day in the public and domestic spheres, often in passing or involuntarily.

    Fresh raw materials including field recordings of our everyday routine, samples and loops from tv & radio, news editions and advertisements are all gathered on a regular basis and then mixed together on the spot.

    Hagai is a sound artist, composer and musician and a founder member of the electronic duo Rendezvous. Born in 1978, he lives and works in Israel.

    His work focuses on collecting and combining field recordings together with radio broadcasting, using sounds we’re exposed to every day in the public and domestic spheres, often in passing or involuntarily.

    The result is a multi-layered restless composition created in real-time, using pre-recorded sound objects and live sources; a compressed sonic experience of our daily lives.

  • Precipitation Studies

    11th November 2017 @ 2:00 am - 8:30 am

    programme/artist information

    A series of rainscapes originally created for a rain pavillion designed by the artists Dalziel & Scullion for the Kaust University Campus in Saudi Arabia. All sounds recorded and composed by Mark Vernon.

    Rain has a unique ability to sound out and describe the surfaces in our immediate surroundings, making us newly aware of the timbre, dimensions and other sonic qualities of all things in our vicinity. Rainfall on pots and pans, tubs and tins, car bonnets and cafe tables, park benches and rubbish bins, drainpipes and scaffolding, umbrellas and window panes, conservatories and caravans, pavements and microphones…

    “I opened the front door, and rain was falling. I stood for a few minutes. Lost in the beauty of it. Rain has a way of bringing out the contours of everything; it throws a coloured blanket over previously invisible things; instead of an intermittent and thus fragmented world, the steadily falling rain creates continuity of acoustic experience.”

    (from: John M. Hull, Touching the Rock. An Experience of Blindness, Arrow books, London, 1991, pp.22-23)

    2. Chloë Reid – Filthy Man

    Filthy Man is an audio recording of a reading of a short story by Chloë Reid.

    Chloë Reid is a South African artist currently considering her practice through a socio-physiological framework. Positioned between sociology, biology and psychology, this term refers to the relationship between a society and the habitual physical functions of individuals within that society. She uses film, writing and audio to pare down, repeat and create rhythmical descriptions of objects and actions in an attempt to locate a kind of politics in regular intuitive performance.

    3. Luong Hue Trinh – Return ii

    I’ve heard stories about Vietnamese refugees, and I also met some of them. During war times, they left the country because of various reasons such as politics, religion…etc. or simply, looking for a better life. During their trip to new lands and over there, they faced many difficulties. After years, people could have a stable living, but not all of them. However, they all share a common feeling. They don’t really belong to anywhere. This piece is dedicated to them. In their minds it should create a kind of imaginary motherland.

    1998–2010, after studying at Vietnam National Academy of Music, Luong Hue Trinh graduated with honors in Jazz keyboard. In 2010, electroacoustic music became her main focus. 2015- 2018, she’s been awarding DAAD scholarship for Master Multimedia Composition in Hamburg, Germany.

    Her works’ve been exhibited in art spaces/museums, broadcasted on radios, performed in festivals in Vietnam, Thailand, China, Malaysia, Cambodia, Philippines, Indonesia, Japan, Turkey, US, Czech Republic, Germany, Scandinavia, Australia, Canada & UK. Her first album Illusions had a review and was on the list of Best of 2016: Album of the Year by Avant Music News in San Francisco, US.

    4. Amanda Johnson – The Ice Cave – Buxton Museum

    Composed by Buxton Museum’s artist in residence, Amanda Johnson, for their new gallery opening in September 2017, The Hindlow Lion Suite consists of four electro-acoustic pieces for stringed instruments and recorded environmental sounds. Inspired by the Cave lion bones in Buxton Museum’s collection, the composer uses ancient cave lion DNA to inform the music. The pieces were recorded in Foxhole Cave in the Peak District National Park, Derbyshire, where ice age cave lion bones have been found.

    With thanks to Arts Council England, Buxton Museum, Heritage Lottery Fund, The National Trust, Sound and Music and The British Library sound archive.

    Recent recipient of the Francis Chagrin award Amanda Johnson is a composer and violinist fast gaining a reputation for work made in response to museum collections. In recent years she has worked with the British Music Collection, the National Trust, Nottingham Trent University, Sheffield Cathedral, the National Coal Mining Museum and is she currently composer in residence here at Buxton Museum.

    After a classical training, Amanda played in a number of orchestras and chamber groups. In recent years her practice has moved towards composition, her work combining traditional composition, digital sounds and live performance, often derived from data or patterns.

    5. Jamie Loggie and Connell Soutar – Croft Transmissions SR1241

    Synopsis – This is an experimental piece based on the Number Station phenomenon. Placing the listener in a Croft in the Highlands of Scotland, you listen to an array of unknown shortwave signals from all corners of Scotland’s mythical Moors and Munros. From an ancient world full of legends and folklore, where witches, wolves, unicorns and
    giants roam, what anomalies will occur?

    Jamie Loggie – I am an Audio Technician and Sound Designer with experience and skills in various industries and fields including radio, TV, live music, audio production and video production. Working with audio is my passion and I am always striving to learn new things.
    https://uk.linkedin.com/in/jamieloggie

    Connel Soutar – I’m a writer with a keen interest in how weird the world is. I’ve covered technology and creative interests, from 3D printed food to political leaders. I really enjoy things that are at least a little strange and have been interested in short and long wave radio for years.

    6. Christoffer Schunk – Did You

    This is the first track of Until No Longer Effective: an album of experimental music utilizing hundreds of fart samples collected over two years. The album can be considered a type of slow- change music based on the listener’s attitude and perception of the sounds. What results from continued exposure to something like a fart and how does accompanying noise influence the perception of it? If it is immediately grotesque or funny, how long does it take for different opinions to form? What does this say about humor? Can fart acclimation relate to societal or political acclimation?

    Christoffer Schunk is a multidisciplinary composer and performance artist based in Los Angeles. His works involve voice, common and uncommon instruments, field recordings, electronics, and acting. His pieces have been featured nationally and internationally at SEAMUS, MUSLAB, the Ars Electronica Forum Wallis Festival, the Brooklyn Film Festival, Sound Thought Festival, the Iron Composer Competition, REDCAT, Human Resources LA, the wulf and on I Care If You Listen, and have been performed by Conceptual Soundproductions Budapest, Santa Clarita Master Chorale, the CalArts New Century Players, Black House Collective, and the UC Santa Barbara Symphony Orchestra.

    7. Eleanor Wright – Still Solar Wind

    Considering the universe as a complex network of vibrations, we reposition ourselves (as a body of waves) somewhere amongst the macro (cosmic) and micro (atomic) frequencies of our environment.We seek to find harmony and resonance in the symphony of energies that surround us, and we can be made aware of the omnipresent vibrations with the understanding of sound waves as pervasive spiritual entities: eclectic but united in their nature. This piece proposes a moment of resonance where radio is the domestic platform that these measureless vibrations can assume

    Former art student and current physics student, I hope to eliminate the exclusive language the two fields use to communicate their essential comments and explorations of the universe, and cross pollinate the two in hope to share and achieve a higher consciousness.

     


  • Mary Farfisa's Outer Space Radio Theater: Stardust Storm - Jim Cheff

    11th November 2017 @ 9:30 am - 10:00 am

    programme/artist information

    I have been writing and producing a weekly series of musical science fiction radio plays for children. They are broadcast on Radio Sunnyside, 101.5 FM, here in my hometown of Flagstaff Arizona. The show is called “Mary Farfisa’s Outer Space Radio Theater.” Mary Farfisa is an eight-year-old space-girl who travels the Galaxies on her space-horse, Briscoe. Mary goes from planet to planet, searching for “songs and sounds and music and noise” to share with the rest of the Universe. Mary catches the songs and sounds and music and noise in her “audio lasso.” Then she brings them to the Listener’s Library – an intergalactic collection of sounds, curated by music-loving super-beings called the Listeners. Mary’s adventures are exciting, funny and fun. But each episode also teaches something about a certain style of music, or deals with some aspect of learning music that kids can relate to. The show was created by me. I write, produce (and even act!) in every episode. Original music and sound effects are created for each episode. The art and posters that accompany each show are painted by me. The plays are performed by local actors and musicians, like Cara Alboucq, who plays the role of Mary Farfisa.

    All the shows can be listened to at mixcloud.com/maryfarfisashow.

    And you can find out more about the show at facebook.com/maryfarfisa.

     


  • Kitty Jinks - K & C Radio - Side 1

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

    programme/artist information

    An anonymous submission of unknown provenance. An uncensored artefact of outsider radio. This programme documents the audio inventiveness of two hyperactive young girls across two sides of a C90 cassette tape. K & C radio explores the inner psyche of its two willing participants revealing obsessions with nuns, the Argos catalogue, Gremlins and poo, lots of poo. For the first time ever this radio show made solely for the entertainment of an audience of two will be heard across the airwaves and across time. K & C – if you’re listening, and I hope you are – I’d just like to let you know that – I need a poo!

     


  • Upward Citizen - Ignacio Pereira Molina

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

    programme/artist information

    Upward Citizen is an experimental sound project recorded in the city of Santiago, Chile in November 2016.

    This work proposes a vertical crossing, which accounts for the link between the release of the being and action of climbing. By means of the registration of the different layers of the city (that begins in the underground transport and ends at the top of Cerro Santa Lucía, immersed in the middle of the city) this proposal pretends to show the different sonorities to which we are exposed within the contemporary city and how it can mutate depending on the place and height to which we are.

    Ignacio Pereira Molina a.k.a Espereira (b. 1992) is a chilean-based graphic designer and media artist. Since his formal studies in design, his work has been changing into more experimental and conceptual areas, working the image as a whole in various techniques such as photography, engraving and new media. Its imaginary is based mainly on the human being and its relation with the habitat; carrying out interdisciplinary projects that try to unveil the existence of man.

  • So what is your vibration? - Catherine Street

    11th November 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 12:15 pm

    programme/artist information

    So what is your vibration? is a poem and a stream of conciousness. There is fire, lava and molten metal as well as electrical storms, spiders’ webs and votive offerings to the gods. The work is in part inspired by visits to the geology collection of the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh.

  • The Lady In Her Dimensions - Jolyon Houghton

    11th November 2017 @ 12:15 pm - 12:30 pm

    programme/artist information

    The Lady In Her Dimensions is a series of writings describing a woman – a relationship, a past love – but explored through theories on the construct of the universe. It allows the unknown to become potential. The real to become magical. It presents a different angle in which to interpret the feelings of loss, guilt, want and regret, and how all things are intimately connected.

    The piece comes from a collaborative project made with my brother, involving the creation of twelve experimental pieces of writing – stories, plays, poems, scribblings – each developed from the starting point of a photograph.

    Jolyon Houghton is a 28 year old actor and writer from West London, who studied Collaborative & Devised Theatre at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. His writing is a mixture of humour and misfortune, in the form of plays, poems and short stories.

    Written by Jolyon Houghton
    Performed by Jolyon Houghton and John Dobson

    2. Hagai Izenberg – Chronicle 2
    3. Jaxton Su Jingxiang – Dreamscape: friends
    4. Jamie Livingstone – Iteration
    5. Bernardo Jiminez – Michelle

    1. Garrett Tiedemann – Last Thursday (in Fragments) – Episode 6 – Limitation

    In 2015 Don Chambers hosted “a music and other things entertainment” each month called The Last Thursday. Each month had its own theme and governed not only the types of content, but way of presentation for the evening. These evenings lived and died in the moment with very little social media promotion or archiving. In series 2 of The White Whale we offer snippets of these evenings; providing first glimpses beyond the nights of what went down and why their existence foregoing online permanence is important. Visit http://www.donchambersmusic.com/ for music and more.

    Garrett Tiedemann is a radio producer, journalist, filmmaker and composer. He works for American Public Media covering the breadth and depth of composed music for YourClassical and Classical Minnesota Public Radio while also producing films, music videos, music and the podcast The White Whale via his production company CyNar Pictures. As a freelancer, he has lent production and compositional approaches to the podcasts Vanishing Ink, Here Be Monsters, The Organist, ARRVLS, Life of the Law, and Top Score. Additionally, he manages production and strategy for the oral history/storytelling project SisterStory.

    2. Hagai Izenberg – Chronicle 2

    Chronicles is a weekly format of works that attempt to trace the sounds and happenings on a weekly basis and compress them to 4-5 minutes of sonic experience. Fresh raw materials were collected every week including field recordings, samples from radio & tv and recordings sent by listeners of RadioArt program by Meira Asher on 106fm, who featured the project. It includes 6 episodes (total of 30 minutes) of 6 weeks from Oct 6th till Nov 17th, 2016 and attempts to capture everyday sounds together with the daily news & events, tragedies and political discourse next to advertisements and entertainment.

    Hagai is a sound artist, composer and musician and a founder member of the electronic duo Rendezvous. Born in 1978, he lives and works in Israel. His work focuses on collecting and combining field recordings together with radio broadcasting, using sounds we’re exposed to every day in the public and domestic spheres, often in passing or involuntarily. The result is a multi-layered restless composition created in real-time, using pre-recorded sound objects and live sources; a compressed sonic experience of our daily lives.

    3. Jaxton Su Jingxiang – Dreamacape: friends

    Dreamscape is an exploration of how sounds in dreams can be translated aurally to form a narrative that could potentially aid in the understanding of the self. It aims to provide the audience with a sonic experience of the artist’s self-portrait as told by his dreams.

    Jaxton Su (b. 1988) is a Singaporean Visual Artist, based in Glasgow, UK. He enjoys experimenting with the use of colours in portraying peculiar narratives that delve into the notions of archetypes and the imaginary. Taking inspirations from the natural environment, Jaxton often creates bizarre dreamlike worlds with a whimsical composition of elements to bring across his ideas. Working with a variety of different mediums such as painting and installation, he hopes to create a visual utopia that could form a resonation with others and spark an imagination.

    4. Jamie Livingstone – Iteration

    Puddle Rainbows Missed is a poetry EP by Jamie Livingstone produced by future garage and techno DJs Blackboxx and Acidtone. It centres around the idea of the Mandelbrot Set and iterative patterns. How do these forms commune with the brittle, coarse and tender everyday muck? What are people up to with cucumbers? Who knows anyway? It’s poems mixed with samples. It’s sound and shape.

    I started writing poetry when Mr Harrington read us Yeats and almost stopped when I heard what age he lost his virginity.
    Yeats, that is, not Mr Harrington.
    Who knows what he gets up to.
    I am 26. Yeats was 31. I live in Oban. I have no children. I have a full set of teeth.

    5. Bernardo Jiminez – Michelle

    The Question is one of the longest running projects of this kind in latin america, with more than two decades of constant work. TreesOnComa begun as a side project to -eLaMoRTe-, in order to release under this tag more experimental sound/instrumental pieces and also to offer visual artists the chance to commission sound works for their creations. TreesOnComa has also worked with theatre companies in the past.

    Jean François CAVRO – Compositeur – Artiste du son – Cartographe sonore Il est diplômé du Conservatoire National de Région de Lyon (CNR – classe de Denis Dufour) et du onservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Lyon (CNSM – classe de Philippe Manoury et Denis Lorrain), en composition instrumentale, électroacoustique et informatique musicale. Il a également suivi le cursus de DEA musicologie du XXième siècle à l’IRCAM
    (Institut de Recherche et de Coordination Acoustique/Musique – Paris. Il est actuellement étudiant en Master II musicologie, mémoire de recherche sur la cartographie sonore urbaine. Il intervient régulièrement depuis plusieurs années dans le cadre de projets en collaboration avec l’Education Nationale : Projet petite enfance, Ville de Lyon – projet sur l’ Arc Jurassique Franco/Suisse – Lycée du 1er Film Lyon – colloque 2005 “la Musique, le
    Son et la Ville” – Lycée Courbet, Belfort – Lycée Technique de l’Horlogerie, collège et établissements primaires de la ville de Morteau – Centre de Linguistique Appliquée Besançon – Ecole Nationale des Beaux Arts de Limoges – Intervenant son à l’École
    Nationale Supérieure de Cinéma Louis Lumière – La Plaine St Denis, Cité du Cinéma.

    Il se présente comme artiste du sonore en développant parallèlement à son travail de composition un vaste projet sur les paysages sonores, mémoire vivante du monde contemporain. Ce travail sonore s’inscrit dans une réalité urbaine. Son approche de musicien ouvre un champ autre à la lecture classique d’une ville : il nous révèle les sons et la voix de la ville. Par une exploration passant par la collecte d’instantanés sonores, il élabore une cartographie nouvelle. Elle alterne des échelles de sons diverses partant du fond sonore général d’un hall de gare jusqu’au détail comme la voix d’un marchand ambulant dans la rue… vrai puzzle ou kaléidoscope sonore renvoyant aux multiples facettes et images urbaines. Il définit la ville non seulement comme un lieu mais aussi comme une accumulation de mouvements pluriels et d’expériences simultanées. La ville est un véritable palimpseste où se lisent les couches de l’histoire : les bâtiments gardent en eux une mémoire. Ils sont les témoins d’une époque, d’un temps passé, présent ou futur. A l’inverse l’environnement sonore est oublié, fugace, éphémère. Jean François CAVRO fixe cette mémoire sonore en perpétuelle transformation et nous permet de l’analyser et de mieux comprendre ainsi notre société. Celle ci est de plus en plus urbaine, les sons industriels remplacent un par un les sons naturels. Les villes s’étalent dans une péri- urbanisation.

    Jean François CAVRO nous éclaire, par sa démarche, sur l’évolution de ce phénomène. Par ses constats et questionnements il peut donner des réponses et des
    orientations à suivre pour les acteurs de la ville. Par son travail minutieux de construction et de déconstruction sonore, le compositeur nous pose ainsi les questions : “Aujourd’hui où vivons nous et Que devons nous écouter ?”. Cette simple question constitue peut-être tout l’enjeu d’une composition musicale conçue dans une réalité sonore urbaine : témoigner de l’identité sonore des villes. Une telle prise de conscience peut sans doute contribuer à révéler la vigueur des lieux dans lequel nous vivons. Il est lauréat de plusieurs résidences et concours nationaux et internationaux.

    1. Timo Kahlen – Essence of Art: Part 1

    A conceptual and personal exploration of the essence of art: both thesis and anti-thesis. The essence of art is to make mistakes. True art is (but) deception. Trust me, I’m an artist.

    Sound sculptor and media artist Timo Kahlen (*1966) has been creating eye- and earcatching, temporary media sculptures and sound installations for more than 25 years.

    2.Suzy Angus and Janieann McCracken – Pathfoot Sounds

    This year Stirling University celebrates its 50th birthday. We created a sound art installation reflecting the architecture and fabric of the original university building, Pathfoot, as well as staff and students, past and present. The whole project took about a year and the final piece takes the listener through the front door at the start of a day, all the way up and through until sunset.

    3. Stuart Russell – Search for the Spirit

    Some embrace the spirit as a source of comfort but what exactly is this ethereal
    entity? Believers and non-believers search for the elusive human spirit. Poetry
    by Stephanie Turner. Produced by Stuart Russell with Eyebrow Media.

    http://www.eyebrowmedia.com

    Stuart Russell is an award winning artist and audio producer, passionate about
    creative media. Stuart combines his artistic eye and flair for poetry with
    programme making, to create work that excites and inspires the creative mind.
    His work features on a variety of platforms including Resonance FM and (in the
    past) BBC Scotland. At 22, he was one of the youngest in the country to receive
    a British Empire Medal for services to the arts, one of many impressive
    accolades.

    4. Seth Rozanoff – Preachersong

    Preachersong (2012) was realized in the electronic music studios at the Sonic Arts Research Center in Belfast. Audio recordings, which I collected as I walked through the town centre streets of Sao Paulo, were freely arranged, through a process of reflective listening in the studio. My approach in the studio can be viewed as an improvisation; I aimed to create collisions of contrasting environmental sounds. These contrasts seemed to highlight a new intimacy between individuals and their environment. For example, the opening ‘character’, a preacher wandering through the praça de sé, introduces the listener to a new developing environment.

    BIO:
    Seth Rozanoff is currently living in Glasgow, where he received a Phd at the University of Glasgow. He previously lived in Belfast, Amsterdam, and Sao Paulo after leaving New York City in 2010. Rozanoff’s work sets up a range of performative, musical, and compositional relationships. The resulting interaction is managed through either a range of scores, studio techniques, and live electronic performance. Future projects include, a series of solo works for drum machine, sampler, laptop, and video; a work for percussion and electronics with Ruud Roelofsen; and a piano and electronics work for Adam Tendler.

    5. Selina Springett – Profits [or] Loss

    This audio piece is from an installation work adapted for radio. It invites the listener to contemplate the conflicting roles of nature, consumerism and an increasingly mechanised, distanced society. It combines field recordings from urban Australian bushland(forest that borders residential city areas) and polyvocal narrations of the net value of the 60 richest companies and the 100 richest individuals in the world, as well as their profit (or loss) of a single day’s trading. Various drones, factory and machine noises as well as the sounds of an Australian supermarket self-checkout evoke a sense the world’s current trajectory towards a post human/post natural existence.

    11th November 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

    programme/artist information

    Welcome to the Art & Podcast, a podcast that asks “What do you do?” and “Can that be called Art?”. Hosted by artist and performer Ronan Mcmahon, and loyally assisted by
    producer Roy Shearer, each episode takes the listener on a conversational tour of a different occupation. We delve into how each guest perceives art and creativity, and to what extent both relate to their day job, all whilst taking a nice walk during their lunch break.

    In this episode we ask: can Nannying be called an art-form?

    We met up with Giulia, who runs a nanny agency in Berlin, to find out. Ronan risks life and limb once again, being swallowed and spat out by a dragon in the quest for scientific rigour.

    Ronan Mcmahon is a stage and radio comedy performer with a passion for the convergence of science and art. He regularly collaborates with Naomi O Kelly as the clowning, storytelling, puppetry, live music and social satire partnership, Two Detectives.

    Roy Shearer is a designer and musician, who often consults as a technician to the arts, and occasionally makes his own forays into sound art and interactive installation.

  • LENGHEDIVACJE Ep.4 - Renato Rinaldi

    11th 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 tranformation 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 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.

    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
    4a – Vilma Boria – Interview collected in Socchieve (UD)
    Her life in a farm by the river, she tells about how the water in May “falls in love”.

    Elaborated into 4b – iiiooOo by Ward Weis – (Belgium)
    i don’t understand any word of the original recording …. so, i took the first and last word of the lady an did some spectral analyse on it.
    I could generate new sonic material from this research. it was my scope to make the final edit as long as the original material … so my piece is also 10.43 ( cutted the silences at the begin and end ) where the original sounded quite hard, my version became less harsh, much more stretched and sound as a choir not speaking words only syllables instead.

    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.

    1. Adam Paroussos – Mvt. II: Bamboo Mustard

    Cosmophonic Fantasia: Mvts I-III (OST)
    Cosmophonic Fantasia is predominately a musique concrète film in three movements: I Audio Field, II Bamboo Mustard and III Fractal Reprise. This piece explores the metaphysical and expressive nature of sound and inspired by Sonata form. ‘Audio Field’ uses a collection of montaged film and sound samples and ‘remixes’ them together to turn the everyday experiences of sound into a dream-like sonic experience. Mvt 2,‘Bamboo Mustard’ uses collected fragments of live performances to piece together the journey of this character – Bamboo Mustard. The final movement Fractal Reprise concludes the film, exploring the underlying structures within the natural and sound.

    Adam Paroussos is an interdisciplinary sound artist and designer, just graduated from Central Saint Martins, BA Performance Design and Practice. His work is rooted in performative, collaborative and experimental approaches with sound and music. Under his Nova award-nominated alter-ego ‘Bamboo Mustard’, he performs with DIY instruments in a sound costume in the cracks and corners of London. Adam works across theatre, live art and film including composing the soundtrack for Andrea Zimmerman’s ‘Erase and Forget’ documentary and Jotdown’s physical theatre show ‘Haidar’.

    2. Hagai Izenberg – Chronicle 3

    Chronicles is a weekly format of works that attempt to trace the sounds and happenings on a weekly basis and compress them to 4-5 minutes of sonic experience. Fresh raw materials were collected every week including field recordings, samples from radio & tv and recordings sent by listeners of RadioArt program by Meira Asher on 106fm, who featured the project. It includes 6 episodes (total of 30 minutes) of 6 weeks from Oct 6th till Nov 17th, 2016 and attempts to capture everyday sounds together with the daily news & events, tragedies and political discourse next to advertisements and entertainment.

    Hagai is a sound artist, composer and musician and a founder member of the electronic duo Rendezvous. Born in 1978, he lives and works in Israel. His work focuses on collecting and combining field recordings together with radio broadcasting, using sounds we’re exposed to every day in the public and domestic spheres, often in passing or involuntarily. The result is a multi-layered restless composition created in real-time, using pre-recorded sound objects and live sources; a compressed sonic experience of our daily lives.

    3. Jaxton Su Jingxiang – Dreamscape: Prison break

    Dreamscape is an exploration of how sounds in dreams can be translated aurally to form a narrative that could potentially aid in the understanding of the self. It aims to provide the audience with a sonic experience of the artist’s self-portrait as told by his dreams.

    Jaxton Su (b. 1988) is a Singaporean Visual Artist, based in Glasgow, UK. He enjoys experimenting with the use of colours in portraying peculiar narratives that delve into the notions of archetypes and the imaginary. Taking inspirations from the natural environment, Jaxton often creates bizarre dreamlike worlds with a whimsical composition of elements to bring across his ideas. Working with a variety of different mediums such as painting and installation, he hopes to create a visual utopia that could form a resonation with others and spark an imagination.

    Puddle Rainbows Missed is a poetry EP by Jamie Livingstone produced by future garage and techno DJs Blackboxx and Acidtone. It centres around the idea of the Mandelbrot Set and iterative patterns. How do these forms commune with the brittle, coarse and tender everyday muck? What are people up to with cucumbers? Who knows anyway? It’s poems mixed with samples. It’s sound and shape.

    I started writing poetry when Mr Harrington read us Yeats and almost stopped when I heard what age he lost his virginity.
    Yeats, that is, not Mr Harrington.
    Who knows what he gets up to.
    I am 26. Yeats was 31. I live in Oban. I have no children. I have a full set of teeth.

  • Am I sitting in a room? - Arnau Horta

    11th November 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 7:30 pm

    programme/artist information

    Alvin Lucier’s “I am sitting in a room” is not just a key work in the history of sound art but also and primordially an example of sonic conceptual art. The piece has often been analyzed from a phenomenological approach, grounded in how sound builds our perception of a space and how, conversely, that same space shapes the sounds we hear when we inhabit it. But Lucier’s piece has a lot more to say. “I am sitting in a room” can be understood as a sonic-work about self-presence and the problematic notion of a speaking subject that, to put in the words of Jacques Derrida, “hears himself speak”.

    Lucier himself recalls that one day Cornelius Cardew described the piece as some sort of suicidal act: a sonic device through which his author was trying to make himself disappear by means of erasing his voice. To put it less dramatically, it could be said that Lucier’s famous piece is a brilliant trick of acousmatic escapism. Where did Lucier go? Is he still in the room after his speech is no longer understandable? Has he turned himself into a resonant ghost?

    “Am I sitting in a room?” pays homage to Lucier’s almost homonymous work and, at the same time, is conceived as a sonic commentary to the strong conceptual operation that underlies the original piece. The central idea is reversing the process through which Lucier’s piece was created. The voice explaining the process cannot be heard until the piece is close to its end. What we hear is not a voice disappearing but a recorded speech that progressively becomes clearer and easier to understand. Someone seems to be appearing. But does this acousmatic subject (this acousmêtre as Michel Chion would call it) appear completely? Is he fully revealed? The voice sounds strange, like if someone is talking backwards. And, after all, a recorded voice is always a simulacrum of a presence, a ghost. Just as Lucier’s piece couldn’t erase his presence completely, the acousmêtre behind this piece will not succeed in
    making himself fully present. So… is he really sitting in a room?

    “Am I sitting in a room?” is not just the result of an “artistic attempt” but also and
    primarily an exercise carried out in the framework of my doctoral research on Lucier’s piece. When I started working on my philosophy thesis I soon realized
    about the fact that “I am sitting in a room” seems to defy a purely theoretical
    approach and demands a practical and truly sonic engagement. This is the
    reason why, in order to address issues such as those of presence, resonance,
    appearance and disappearance, I decided to record this “reversed” and also “interrogative” version of the piece. The final aim of this exercise is not so much
    answering the questions that Lucier’s piece seems to raise but to reformulate
    them by asking them again in a reverse form.

    The full text that will be reversed and repeatedly played back into the room and
    finally reversed again when the process is completed is the following one:

    I am sitting in a room different from the one you are in now. I am recording the sound of my speaking voice and I am going to reverse it before I play it back into the room again and again. By doing this the resonant frequencies of the room will reinforce themselves and any semblance of my speech, with perhaps the exception of rhythm, will be destroyed. After that I will reverse the recording resulting from this process. What you have been hearing from the very beginning are the natural resonant frequencies of the room articulated by speech. I don’t regard this activity simply as a tribute to Alvin Lucier’s “I am sitting in a room” but as a way to reverse his trick of acousmatic escapism. Just as he seemingly tried to make himself disappear I am trying to do the opposite. And just as Lucier’s piece couldn’t erase his presence
    completely this one will not succeed in making me fully present.

    Guest lectures is a 30 minute presentation designed for a segment within the electromagnetic radiation on Zanj Radio. There is a tension in Jamaica which erupts in contradictions which play out in our daily lives and then spills into the news. Many times ideas goes without interrogation as events occur quickly. New ways of presenting complex ideas are important and necessary. In this lecture I manipulate audio I captured from a Christian led protest in Half-way tree about the threat of the homosexual agenda in Jamaica.

    I grew up in Spanish Town, St.Catherine, Jamaica. I attended St.Jago High School and later went to the University of the West Indies to complete a B.Sc in International Relations, an M.Sc in Governance and a PhD in Sustainable Development. I have always admired the critical view my father took towards everyday things and everyday conversation, he was very critical with his primary school education. I was significantly impacted by the creativity of my mother who was a teacher and her love for books and learning.

    I live as an artist and a creative grounded in a Rastafarian/African spirituality.

    programme/artist information

    This is a selection of seven shows from ‘radioart106fm’ compiled for radiophrenia 2017. It contains the creations of female Radio and Sound artists.

    French sound artist, activist and musician Gaël Segalen aka IhearU has a very diverse experience in sound and is focused on polylistening, dissonance and new music, as well as to create people’s encounters in improvisation spaces. She believes all the noises she has collected or manipulated, can coexist in one inclusive spirit, here and now, and transposes the complexity of the world into electroacoustic and polyrhythmic soundscapes, bruitisme and DFR (Danceable Field Recording) compositions. The reconciliation of all the noises she has collected from her travels is manipulated in the studio, in one inclusive spirit, here and now.

    3. 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.

    6. ETC – Giallo

    In English-speaking countries, the term “giallo” often refers to the Italian film genre, a particular style of Italian-produced murder mystery thriller-horror film that usually blends the atmosphere and suspense of thriller fiction with elements of horror fiction and eroticism.
    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 slasher-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.

    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 …

    7. Blake Degraw – Mantra

    Mantra is an adaptation of William S. Burroughs’ Pistol Poem No. 3. It is part of a series of adaptations in which the composer explores methods of creating sonic analogues of selected poems, as opposed to setting their text to music. All parts recorded by Blake DeGraw and Chloe Wicks.

    Blake DeGraw is a composer, performer, bandleader, and sound-installation artist currently residing in Seattle, WA. He studied euphonium performance at the Las Vegas Academy of Performing Arts, and currently studies modern composition at Cornish College of the Arts. He is the director and conductor of FHTAGN, an experimental chamber ensemble that focuses on extremes in spatial dispersion, as well as indeterminacy operations, free improvisation, and alternative forms of conduction within those extremes. DeGraw is also the co-founder of Plancklength, a sound-art collective that explores interactive sound production through installation work and instrument creation.

  • Please Mind The Gap - Mari Moriko/Cashmere Radio

    11th November 2017 @ 10:30 pm - 12:00 am

    programme/artist information

    Please mind the gap is the first episode of a new monthly show by Mari Moriko broadcasting on Cashmere Radio. It is an audio collage of sounds from all ages that look toward a feminist future where power structures of all kinds are questioned and dismantled. but how far is this a western-centric ideal and how does it translate to non-western cultures (my focus is on japan) where the binary notion of gender is woven into the language itself. synthesised text-to-speech voices read out texts, manifestos, cd sleeves, user comments, conversations and more, underscored with beautiful pieces by women in electronic music. each show concludes with an episode of “sumatto” (smut – erotic literature for women by women), read out almost unintelligibly by a japanese text-to-speech voice.
