  • different time different place different pitch: The Call of the Muazzin - Dani Gal & Achim Lengerer

    16th November 2017 @ 1:00 am - 2:00 am

    programme/artist information

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

    This episode: The Call of the Muazzin

    The Israeli Government passed a bill that denounces the muazzin call to Prayer in
    mosques as noise pollution; meanwhile Pegida activists in Germany play it on their
    loudspeakers. With Abed Abu Shehadeh.

    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.

  • Precipitation Studies

    16th November 2017 @ 2:00 am - 6:00 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. Geoff Marsh – Blues Butcher

    3. Anne Lepère – Scope

    “The Scope of my dream was melting … At first, on the upper side … I was hearing something like a fireworks, strange sounds in the middle of the day… Watching carefully, I realized it was not lights or fire in the sky, but human people… They where falling dawn heavily… making the earth tremble

    Then I reach the underground… In spite of the frightfulness of the upper, people were playing music, there in the subway, a light was penetrating the subterranean … people were keeping busy at work…A vertical travel in the depths. “

    Anne, (b.1985) is currently living in Brussels. After her studies at l’IHECS (apply communication) she started working as production assistant for the Belgian National Radio show Par Ouï- Dire (La Première – RTBF), building up first hand experience in sound design and exploring related styles as well (field recording, sound art, radio art, radio drama, performance, experimental music). During the years she has worked for several other sound-related projects, Sounds of écodays (eco-festival at Flagey), Monophonic (Festival international de création radiophonique), the radio shows Moniek to name a few. She co-created Karaonomatopiek, a participative sound performance, performed in the Cinéma Galeries à Bruxelles and at Centre Pompidou (BPI) à Paris (2015). Today she is continuing to work at her own creations, where the use of voice is very often chosen as to start from a more intimate point before opening up to a larger frame. Her work has been diffused in Belgium (La Première, Musiq3, Radio Panik, Radio Campus,…), as well as in Europe and beyond (radia.fm, Nova Rté Lyrics), or during events : Kinokophone (New-York), Süden Radio (Berlin / Radio Papesse), Flagey, Centre Culturel Le Brass (Bruxelles), Grand Prix Nova (Roumanie).

    4. Hamish MacPherson – Doomsday is Just Not Coming

    A guided meditation on bitterness, mediocrity and inertness. A chance to journey through past aggravation you can’t forget, and future revenge that never seems to arrive.

    Written and spoken by Hamish MacPherson. Produced by Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau. Commissioned by The Bad Vibes Club and supported by Arts Council England.

    Hamish MacPherson is a London-based artist who uses ideas and methods from choreography and dance to think about politics. He makes workshops, non-digital games, performances, writings, images and other things in artistic, academic and community contexts. HIs work tends to be clusters of many smaller things rather than working up to something like a big show. Current projects include THIS MOVEMENT, using lots of different methods to look at how we (everyone) use our bodies to make politics and Configuration (Hard Care) looking at care as an aesthetic, choreographic and political practice.

  • Listening Experience #6 Recursive Form - Matt Burnett

    16th November 2017 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

    programme/artist information

    “Listening Experience #6 – Recursive Form” is part of a series of one-hour radio pieces I have created, using air time as a compositional medium rather than a presentation medium. Each episode centers on a concept of sound organization; the concept behind this episode is that of the reuse of existing composed sounds, the recursion of form into itself. In the case of this episode, the exiting sounds are taken from previous episode of “Listening Experience”.

    Matt Burnett lives in Berlin, Germany. His interests center on the musicality of textured sound, and the composition and performance possibilities of the quadraphonic listening space. He studied Electronic Music at Virginia Commonwealth University, graduating with honors. He then studied at the Center for Contemporary Music at Mills College with Maggi Payne and Anthony Braxton. He is the developer of The QuadTool, software that provides the basis for synthesis, composition and performance within the quad listening space.
    He curates a monthly radio program titled Listening Experience. This program focuses on air time as a compositional rather than a performance/presentation medium.

  • The Buffer Zone

    16th November 2017 @ 10:45 am - 11:00 am

    programme/artist information

    Clara Lou – The Furniture Supper Club (12:33)

    The Furniture Supper Club is a haunted radio play about telephone miscommunication and fraught domesticity. A couple has trouble recalling the name and age of their son, and goes on to enact this senility for another pair of speakers. Voices speak furtively over the telephone, their utterances mingling with those of the operators. Two wanderers attempt to remember if they’ve met before by recalling the particulars of a book one may have loaned the other. These narrative threads overlap and intermingle, creating a layered sonic landscape.

    Clara Lou works with text, performance, and radio. She lives in Brooklyn, New York, USA.

  • Hero Hymn - Minna-Kaisa Kallinen

    16th November 2017 @ 12:30 pm - 1:00 pm

    programme/artist information

    Hero Hymn is based on a radio play script Hope written by a Finnish writer Timo K. Mukka (1964). The actual radio play was never dramatized because of the censorship of that time. The play of Mukka tells a story of a young war hero who comes back to his hometown and catches his eye on a maid. Sexuality, the fragility of communication, expectations and needs are written in the text very openly. In this radio play, the war is not mentioned rather the concentration is in the interaction between the Hero and the Girl.

    Minna-Kaisa Kallinen (b.1984, Helsinki Finland) is a multimedia artist working mainly with text, performance, sound and music. Her interest is in words and their many meanings, repetition and systems. She is really interested in stories and their power – how they influence the society and maintain it – how they guide the human behaviour and by that impact to the whole environment. She holds a MFA degree from the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts.

  • The Lady in Her Dimensions - Jolyon Houghton

    16th November 2017 @ 3:45 pm - 4:00 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
    Special thanks to Hoagy Houghton and Billy Brooks for help with editing and sound.

     


  • Panharmonicon - Eothen Stearn

    16th November 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

    programme/artist information

    “1761, Panharmonicon – A mechanical keyboard instrument that automated the playing of flutes, clarinets, trumpets, violins, cellos, drums, cymbals, triangle, and other instruments. Although the Panharmonicon was mechanical and not electrical, the spirit of the invention lives on in today’s sampling instruments. (Chase & Williston Synthmuseum, 2016)”

    This text examines the entangled, in-between entities and interstitial moments that coexist within a single body, and in doing so, rearranges some of the inherited hierarchies that I embody. Departing from a diaristic form, I have written and re-edited one month’s daily reflections into reoccurring containers; aging, alcohol, friendship, hair, house, living structures, money, sleep and transit. By dismantling the chronological structure for a more associative, cumulative one, I have built new narratives from everyday experiences. Panharmonicon can be read in any order, allowing a reader to choose which narrative inherits the next.

    Into this sampling of experience, I have interwoven the experiences of other people, quoting from writers working on similar territory. I wanted to create a horizontal, non-hierarchical plane including those authors, my writing, and conversations with others, to demonstrate the different ways text enters my body and how my own narrative is inscribed in relation to others, within physical proximity and who’s writing plays a role in my everyday life. Theory and poetry interrupt my life; the ways my life enters my reading is unpredictable.

    The varied voices featuring in this text do not converse as such, instead they build a matrix of feminist writing of the personal, as a source of embodied authority. I have been particularly concerned to write and collate towards an intersectional Feminist position, including passages from philosophy, postcolonial theory, poetry, and music.

    Anne Boyer, Moyra Davey, Simone Forti, Audre Lorde, Eileen Myles, Sarah Manguso, Maggie Nelson, Yvonne Rainer: these women and others capture me and are captured, momentarily in my text, they all use their lived experience to critique the hierarchies and suggest alternatives. By writing with, alongside and through their voices, I embrace messiness and chaos finding moments of clarity, and emerging into knowledge though inductive logic.

    Featuring the voices of:
    Ageing: Johanna Kotlaris
    Alcohol: Sophie Bates
    Body: Shraddha Borawake
    Hair: Erika Roux
    Friendship: Jessica Timmins

    Espen Sommer Eide – Dead Language Poetry

    Every tenth day a language disappears, and at that rate, within a few generations, half of the approximately 6000 languages in the world today will be extinct. What we lose when a language dies is a complex topic which is interesting from both a cultural historical, linguistic and philosophical point of view. With a background in art, music and philosophy, Espen Sommer Eide has used numerous approaches to observe the phenomenon. He is interested in the complexity in the process behind destruction, evolution and creation of language.

    In the performance Dead Language Poetry this subject is treated from an aesthetic perspective. Is it possible to find a unique signature of sound in different languages, and can such an aesthetic aspect be detached from the aspects of knowledge and identity? What is the sound of dead languages, and can it be revived? When Edison invented the phonograph, it was soon seen as a means, not primarily to play music, but to hear voices of dead persons. The voices recorded on the phonograph were experienced as sounds without bodies; as spirits in space. Through deconstructions of language Sommer Eide touches questions about the lines between living and dead languages, between meaning and sound, and between linguistic metaphorical structures and musically structured sound.

    Espen Somer Eide is a musician and artist based in Bergen, Norway. Using sound as a tool, his work investigates themes ranging from linguistics to sensory biology, including the invention of new scientific and musical instruments for performative fieldwork. He has been a prominent representative of experimental electronic music from Norway, with main projectsAlog and Phonophani, and a string of releases on the label Rune Grammofon.
    His works has been exhibited and performed at Bergen Kunsthall, Bergen Assembly, Nikolaj Kunsthal, Manifesta Biennial, Henie Onstad kunstsenter, Stedelijk Museum, De Halle Haarlem, Sonic Acts, Mutek festival, GRM/PresencesÉlectronique, Performa Festival, Museo Reina Sofia and more.

    Ben Knight & Tom White – Difficult To Listen

    Following their 2016 Radiophrenia collaboration Caring Encounters, where a script based around interviews with care workers of all kinds was sung, layered & processed, Ben Knight & Tom White, present a new live hörspiel, Difficult To Listen. A social-science fiction narrative told in a series of minor narrative episodes; film and props, to reflect on the everyday listening events within and around a drop-in centre for refugees in Manchester. Centred around incidental field recordings made by a semi-fictional ethnographer, Difficult To Listen deals with the traces of sonic events interpreted and translated in an attempt to attune to the sounds and acts of listening that occur within the drop-in. It is an approach to performative knowing that resonates with Trinh T. Minh-ha’s notion of not speaking about, just speaking near by… in an attempt to get to grips with the drop-in’s thrown-togetherness – its many voices, improvised social spaces and all the clamours of life that affect how people relate across difference.

    Difficult to Listen draws on Ben Knight’s research from his Audible Citizenship PhD project, and is made with thanks to the drop-in centres in Manchester where he works as a researcher/volunteer.

    Ben Knight (Sheffield, 1983) is a human geographer & musician. He is working on his PhD at the University of Manchester on the politics of listening, asylum and citizenship. He is 1/3 of Human Heads, 1/3 of Katz Mulk and runs Psykick Dancehall Recordings with the artist Hannah Ellul.

    Tom White is a London-based artist. His multidisciplinary practice spreads across sound, moving image, installation and live performance. Past projects include commissions from South London Gallery, Arnolfini, LUX Moving image, MK Gallery & Spill Festival of Performance. He won the British Composer Award 2014 (Sonic Art) for Public Address, commissioned by South London Gallery. He curates Apologies in Advance; a platform for artist’s work in progress performances.

    programme/artist information

    Each day from March 1 to April 5, 2017 Manuel Pessôa de Lima followed the randomly
    generated instructions dictated to him from a Python script to create sound collages from a
    mixture of analogue synthesizer, cassette recorder, and found audio from YouTube videos. Each one of these collages also incorporates an English to Portuguese translation, configuring them as “lessons” which invites new meaning alongside the soundscape.

    Manuel Lima is a composer-performer from Brazil. His diverse work includes
    lecture-performances (‘Lecture On The Love Song’), sound and light installations (‘Red-Cube’) and endurance performance pieces (‘The Cube’ – a ten-day work living inside a self-built structure with a piano).

  • Nomenrature - Hanan Benammar

    15th November 2017 @ 11:00 pm - 16th November 2017 @ 1:00 am

    programme/artist information

    The live transmission happened at Radio FSK Hamburg in January 2017 as the outcome of a week workshop organized by Radikal Unsichtbar in collaboration with the Ethnography Museum of Hamburg. It was lead by me. We discussed and research German colonial history in Namibia. The participants looked at this specific history through the lens of my lexicon/work and with the materials I brought in addition to the Museum’s archive. We had another two hours live performance during Blurred Edges Festival in June 2017.

  • You're a Market - Zachary Zena Giberson

    16th November 2017 @ 11:00 pm - 11:30 pm

    programme/artist information

    You’re a Market explores the uncanny way in which capitalism transmutes every random, unique trait of yours into fodder for advertisement and financial gain. Every seemingly unique thing about yourself is highly marketable. Your sexuality, your race, your hobbies, every random and chosen thing that makes up You is yet another tool used by companies to sell you something. Even your important social movements are fodder for profit in America. If your personality is just another selling point, how do you truly be yourself in the United States of America? Why identify as anything at all?

    Zachary Zena Giberson is a 27 year old sound artist living in Austin, Texas. He has been creating original music since 2004 and now has 22 wild, eclectic, and fearlessly experimental albums to his name that defy easy genre classification. He primarily creates collage based “coincidental” music, or music that is created entirely out of unrelated musical segments. Zachary Zena Giberson’s bracing, highly mutable work has been compared to that of Nurse With Wound and Black Dice.

     


  • Sumptuous Sinews - David Snow

    16th November 2017 @ 11:30 pm - 12:00 am

    programme/artist information

    Sumptuous sinews is a speculative-fiction free verse poetry cycle with music, told from the perspective of an autonomous Artifical Intelligence entity that was programmed at a university computer lab. Intellectually weaned on random bits of culture vacuumed up from the Internet, it discovers that self-awareness, with its attendant need for emotional connection and authenticity, is more of a curse than a gift.

    The compositions of David Jason Snow have been performed in concert by the Ensemble Intercontemporain, the New Juilliard Ensemble, the American Brass Quintet, the Harvard Wind Ensemble, and other ensembles throughout the United States, Europe, Asia and Africa. He holds degrees in music composition from the Eastman School of Music and Yale University.

    Joel Snow received a doctoral degree from Yale University in 1983 for research performed at Brookhaven National Laboratory’s Alternating Gradient Synchrotron on Long Island. He is an associate professor of physics at Langston University and an adjunct associate professor of physics at the University of Oklahoma.
