  • 101.2 FM, Ghostscape - Anton Sarokin

    7th November 2017 @ 12:00 am - 1:00 am

    programme/artist information

    101.2 FM, Ghostscape is my recent work in the form of 60min. pseudo-radio mix, reproduced from home recordings that I made 17 years ago, in 2000. It is dedicated to the alternative radio station based in Minsk, which I used to listen as a teenager. Using Sony Walkman tapeplayer (identical to the one I was dreaming to have 17 years ago), I re-recorded two last programs of “Radio Style” from old tapes (which were found accidentally at parents’ home) and made a retrospective intro and a kind of invasion into the existing material from the past. The past which seems to be much more about the future than the present.

    I am Anton Sarokin – a multimedia and digital artist with the background in DIY music. I live and work in Minsk, Belarus. In my artistic practice, I focus on issues such as individual and collective memory, political dimension of sound and silence, relationship between music and social sphere, and nonlinear perception of time.

     


  • different time different place different pitch:December 7, 1989, East Berlin - Dani Gal & Achim Lengerer

    7th November 2017 @ 1:00 am - 2:00 am

    programme/artist information

    The first meeting of the East German Round Table where members of East German
    citizen movements met with government representatives to discuss the future of the
    German Democratic Republic. With Elske Rosenfeld.

    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

    7th 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.

    4. Garrett Tiedemann – Status Update

    Caly McMorrow is an interactive art and sound artist based in St. Paul Minnesota. Immediately after the 2016 presidential election she participated in social media catharsis by covering a well referenced Leonard Cohen song and sharing it for those who it may benefit. In this episode, she talks about the post and her continued efforts to unify and connect people together through the complications of life and art. Photos of her interactive installation Status Update can be found on her site and music in this episode is by her from the album All of This is Temporary.

    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.

Additionally, he manages production and strategy for the oral history/storytelling project SisterStory.

    5. Andrew Reddy- In Resonance

    The track uses data generated by NMR-spectroscopy, a technique which studies the structure of matter by examining the resonant frequencies of nuclei. A sample is placed in a magnetic field and the nuclei are excited with radio waves which causes them to resonate at a frequency unique to each atom. Hydrogen and carbon resonances from a range of different molecules were used on the track. Each sound is a collection of resonances comprising of every nuclei in the molecule resonating simultaneously which forms a distinct sonic fingerprint, a unique choir of the individual voices of every nucleus resonating in harmony.

    Andrew Reddy is a composer and sound artist from Kildare, Ireland. Professionally, he works as a research chemist and educator and has a passion for fusing scientific concepts with his art in creating ambient soundscapes, unnerving atmospheres and repugnant noise.

  • Untitled for cello, mangle, youtube and voice - Lisa Busby and Rose Dagul

    7th November 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

    programme/artist information

    Lisa and Rose have a shared interest in making visible process activities. Also in the intangible connections, hidden layers, and emergent materials of the compositional process. This, as yet untitled, work exists as a series of movable parts; all of which form the most expanded conception of its material and immaterial elements but not all of which need to surface in any given iteration of the work. These include – scored elements both notated and instructional, objects, songs by other artists, online video, a decibel meter, conversations between collaborators.

    Iteration 1 for Radiophrenia, 2017.

    Series of six semi-improvised studies for cello, amplified mangle, and voice, in linear sequence with processed youtube audio ARCHIVE_ 10 Years Ago Today Britney Shaves Heads And Gets Tattooed! by X17Online Video [For all the latest Celebrity Gossip, Entertainment News and the best Paparazzi Photos and Video]. Pitch material for cello generated by application of various filtering exercises to Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds Hallelujah. Objects in performance of mangle include chalk, sugar, USB drives, tampons. Other performance instructions, for both instruments, derived from Fleetway Foldaway Wringer instructions for use. Conversations during the making process reflected on intangible experiences of everyday anxiety, fear and despair, and by contrast the ways we have to represent or articulate them; Britney’s instagram account; ASMR, slime and hydraulic press videos on youtube; does Lisa’s dad have any tools that we can crush things with; Rihanna ‘Diamonds’; an interview with Robert Wyatt that Rose heard (Late Junction?); Anne Griffiths Codiaeum Variegatum; recent/various reading on vulnerability, sadness, sickness and hysteria in relation to empowerment and resistance; whether to record our voices.

    Lisa Busby is a Scottish artist, composer, and vocalist working in London, in long duration forms, performance video, text based score, installation and site specific performance. She is interested in exploring the fringes of song; the appropriation of everyday objects and scenarios with a particular focus on using domestic playback media and objects as instruments; and how pop culture artefacts can be set in new and unusual contexts. She’s worked with venues including Blackwood Gallery Toronto, IAC Malmö, Tate, Wysing Arts, and Cafe Oto; curators Electra, Primary and Saisonscape; labels Adaadat and The Lumen Lake; and with collaborators Rutger Hauser, The Nomadic Female DJ Troupe, and Gabriel Bohm Calles.

    Rose Dagul is an artist, composer and cellist living in London. She is the co-founder and coordinator of The Surround, a DIY platform for performance and music, and is a co-conductor of the Peckham Chamber Orchestra. Other projects include Rhosyn, Holy Island Sketchbook, Rutger Hauser and Alien Wind.

    1. Rose Knapp – Timaeus Valentinius ἀποκάλυψις

    Conceptually two shorter philosophically inclined works, questioning whether syntheses of different worldviews are truly possible, such as Wittgensteinian Quietism and Utilitarianism, Heideggerian views on technology and traditional linear Progressive ones, or dualistic religions and monist ones.

    Rose Knapp is a poet and producer. She has EPs & LPs released on D.M.T. Records, Hylé Tapes, Always Human Tapes, Far East Sound, and others. She currently lives in Los Angeles.

    2. The Doll – Triple G v3 – Funnel and Pipe French Horn

    The Doll has been making hideous solo sounds since 2005. Her no-fi aesthetic is a hit with toddlers. The Doll also has a sideline in field recording, diapercore & household appliances.
    She has recently been playing in Seattle noise improv bands TBA & PUNTERS and Auckland bands Septithe & Unknown Tofu. Her US/Aotearoa collective project, Contact Mike, has over 40 band members aged 14 months and up.

    “The Doll can be constituted by mixing 3 parts experiment, 4 parts noise, 1 part ritual, and 2 parts theatre, with a pinch of space dust.” – Alt Music

    http://www.dadashopping.net/

    3. Vincent Eoppolo – America First

    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.

    DARK ASSESSMENT

    . . . She don’t like
    That kind of behaviour
    She don’t like
    That kind of behaviour
    So, throw down your guns
    Don’t be so reckless
    Throw down your guns

    5. Mark Vernon – To Roar or to Whisper

    Composed from a recording of a rune reading in Penzance, wind chimes and field recordings also made in Penzance but on an earlier visit. As asceptic I have an ambivalent relationship with fortune telling so for this reading I tried my best to keep an open mind.

    Mark Vernon is a Glasgow-based artist whose work exists on the fringes of sound art, music and broadcasting. At the core of his practice lies a fascination with the intimacy of the radio voice, environmental sound, obsolete media and the reappropriation of found recordings. A keen advocate of radio as an art form, he co-runs Glasgow art radio station, Radiophrenia and has produced programmes for stations internationally.

    Soundart piece with vinyl disc with problems, three Korg Monotron and osvaldo cibils in el arte de las perillas.

    osvaldo cibils. 1961. Artist born in Montevideo, Uruguay. He lives in Trento, Italia. His artworks are oriented to drawing, soundart, videoart and the development of experimental ideas mainly.

    During the realization of my artworks I limit myself to a few movements, repeated, with little variations: the hands neutralizing the materials, the eye straight in the action, the breathing contained and brief, the head rigid and the thoughts compressed based on my artistic logic.

    8. Sarah Boothroyd – What a Lovely Way to Burn

    She looks at him. He looks at her. Their eyes lock and sparks fly. They fan the flame – a coy smile here, a flirtatious gesture there – and soon there is a burning desire between them. But all the while, lurking in the background, is fear. Fear of rejection. Fear of betrayal. Fear of loss. This short audio work explores the definition of romantic love as “giving someone the power to destroy you, but trusting them not to.” Music: Viewfound / Speaking Through Walls (Part 1)/ Forthcoming Shimmering Moods Records (2016).

    The audio work of Canadian Sarah Boothroyd has been featured by broadcasters, festivals and galleriesin over 25 countries. She has won awards from Third Coast International Audio Festival,New York Festivals, the European Broadcasting Union, and La Muse En Circuit.

  • The Art & podcast - Art & Geology

    7th November 2017 @ 3:45 pm - 4:30 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 Geology be called an art-form? We took a walk up Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh with geologist Gareth Johnson to find out. Will Geology pass our ‘extremely scientific’ 7-question Art Test?

    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.1 - Renato Rinaldi

    7th 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 selected 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

    1a – Elsa Fazzutti – Interview collected in Forni di sotto (UD)
    She talks about the peculiarities of the Friulian language as it is spoken in Forni di Sopra e Forni di Sotto. She also quotes some satirical writings and some improvised stories coming from the inhabitants.

    Elaborated into 1b – Inton tions by Slavek Kwi – (Irland)
    I extracted every word, phrase and cluster of words which attracted my attention due to its sound qualities, texture and/or intonation. I treated each word as abstract sound-object. These have been fragmented in various ways and repeated, though irregularly – more as cycles. These were further processed as filtering interesting colors etc. sequences created this way I mixed as sound-environments, e.g. using sound organisation in layers observed in rainforest (part 1). The second part is more linear and bare, developed as gestures. The whole composition is focused on diversity through variations.

    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.

  • Untitled for cello, mangle, youtube and voice - Lisa Busby and Rose Dagul

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

    programme/artist information

    Lisa and Rose have a shared interest in making visible process activities. Also in the intangible connections, hidden layers, and emergent materials of the compositional process. This, as yet untitled, work exists as a series of movable parts; all of which form the most expanded conception of its material and immaterial elements but not all of which need to surface in any given iteration of the work. These include – scored elements both notated and instructional, objects, songs by other artists, online video, a decibel meter, conversations between collaborators.

    Iteration 1 for RadioPhrenia, 2017.

    Series of six semi-improvised studies for cello, amplified mangle, and voice, in linear sequence with processed youtube audio ARCHIVE_ 10 Years Ago Today Britney Shaves Heads And Gets Tattooed! by X17Online Video [For all the latest Celebrity Gossip, Entertainment News and the best Paparazzi Photos and Video]. Pitch material for cello generated by application of various filtering exercises to Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds Hallelujah. Objects in performance of mangle include chalk, sugar, USB drives, tampons. Other performance instructions, for both instruments, derived from Fleetway Foldaway Wringer instructions for use. Conversations during the making process reflected on intangible experiences of everyday anxiety, fear and despair, and by contrast the ways we have to represent or articulate them; Britney’s instagram account; ASMR, slime and hydraulic press videos on youtube; does Lisa’s dad have any tools that we can crush things with; Rihanna ‘Diamonds’; an interview with Robert Wyatt that Rose heard (Late Junction?); Anne Griffiths Codiaeum Variegatum; recent/various reading on vulnerability, sadness, sickness and hysteria in relation to empowerment and resistance; whether to record our voices.

    Lisa Busby is a Scottish artist, composer, and vocalist working in London, in long duration forms, performance video, text based score, installation and site specific performance. She is interested in exploring the fringes of song; the appropriation of everyday objects and scenarios with a particular focus on using domestic playback media and objects as instruments; and how pop culture artefacts can be set in new and unusual contexts. She’s worked with venues including Blackwood Gallery Toronto, IAC Malmö, Tate, Wysing Arts, and Cafe Oto; curators Electra, Primary and Saisonscape; labels Adaadat and The Lumen Lake; and with collaborators Rutger Hauser, The Nomadic Female DJ Troupe, and Gabriel Bohm Calles.

    Rose Dagul is an artist, composer and cellist living in London. She is the co-founder and coordinator of The Surround, a DIY platform for performance and music, and is a co-conductor of the Peckham Chamber Orchestra. Other projects include Rhosyn, Holy Island Sketchbook, Rutger Hauser and Alien Wind.

    Asparagus Piss Raindrop – R&R Rat Race at The Witch Hazel School – Phase 3

    The Scene: night, skeletal pieces of driftwood, small fragments of friendship washed up on the beach of late capitalist dystopia. A few small creatures are stirring in the phosphorescence and the jellyfish decay. Are they friendly? Are they of this world?
    Announcing Phase 3 of R&R Rat Race at The Witch Hazel School, a radio play by Asparagus Piss Raindrop. Wherein:

    – All characters are based on real people but their names have not been changed to protect the innocent.
    – Accompanying sounds will be created using amplified contracts, canned migration and organic folé.

    For this performance Asparagus Piss Raindrop are Neil Davidson, Lucy Duncombe, Liene Rozite, Julia Letitia Scott, Fritz Welch

    Asparagus Piss Raindrop are a crypto conceptual science fiction anti climax band dedicated to pushing beyond all reasonable limits what live music performance can be. Asparagus Piss Raindrop is formed from a dreadful, ever-expanding pool of performer / composer / improvisers from the Glasgow (and beyond) experimental music scene. The group‘s work arises from the questions; How can we do things otherwise? What musical forms arise from and inform our daily experience? Performances typically draw on such things as recycled children’s games, group therapy, shapeshifting, declarations of ridiculous texts, geology, architectural intervention, gender theory, site specificity and slug reproduction. APR have been commissioned to produce work by Tectonics Glasgow, Glasgow International, Tectonics Iceland, Transmission Gallery Glasgow, Association CRIC in France and Supernormal Festival in Oxfordshire.

  • Return to Aporia - Jamie Cooper and Elina Bry - live in the studio

    7th November 2017 @ 9:30 pm - 10:00 pm
    the studio

    programme/artist information

    The Return to Aporia text itself draws on Dadaist post-logic writing to imagine a different world. Much like Afro-futurism, this process is used as a tool to both imagine our way forward via this new other world and also to transcend to this other world in order to reflect
    more critically on our own everyday realities.

    Elina Bry is a multi disciplinary artist currently studying on the MFA and with experience of performance art, notably presenting work at Lights Out Listening Group this year.

    Jamie Cooper is also a multi disciplinary artist currently studying on the MFA but with little experience of performing, being much happier writing and plotting in the background.

    Jamie and Elina have been working on developing the project collaboratively since November 2016 and the performance for Radiophrenia would be the realisation of this collaboration.

    A recorded version of the text is available here:

  • Nachrichtenstellt - Marc Matter

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

    programme/artist information

    ‘NACHRICHTENTSTELLT’ is an electroacoustic radio-collage of news-broadcasts by Marc Matter, originally produced for SWR2.

    Newstexts have a very special form – short, concentrated and standardised. For a long time, I have been fascinated by this aim to objectivity, to speak-out the news-data as neutral as possible. I have recorded and collected lots of radio-news (in german language) which have been further processed and mutated with the use of electroacoustic means. Composed into a sound-text, this composition highlights all the standard words, phrases and inflections typical for radio-news, in a playful manner.

    Marc Matter (*1974 in Basel, CH) sound-artist and researcher, former member of Institut fuer Feinmotorik. 1998 – 2003 studies at Academy for Media Arts (Cologne) with Valie Export and Siegfried Zielinksi. Assistant-professor for Music & Text at IMM Düsseldorf, curator at salon-des-amateurs. Extensive studies about Sound Poetry, especially about the OU review by Henri Chopin and curator for the international festival for text-sound-poetry (ISSUE project room 2015). Composer of several sound-texts for radio, developing a practice of text-sound for recording and performance. Collaborations with several artists, i.e. poet Dagmara Kraus, performance-artist Veridiana Zurita, visual artists Haseeb Ahmed and Tris Vonna-Michell, sound-artist Tom White, and software-developper and artist Robert M Ochshorn.

     


  • Circuits±Waves - Johnny Farrow

    7th November 2017 @ 10:30 pm - 11:30 pm

    programme/artist information

    Circuits±Waves is a 53 minute mix of shortwave radio recordings plus other recordings. The work is location specific (the shortwave was recorded in the UAE), but also outward reaching — shortwave signals travel long distances, bouncing off the ionosphere to defy the curvature of the earth. The work begins with manipulated recordings of albatross mixed with the sounds of satellite telemetry, then moves slowly toward the shortwave spectrum. The sounds are always suggestive, giving a feeling of connection to something on a global/cosmic scale, hinting at the natural world and at our very direct manipulation of and interaction with invisible forces.

    Jonny Farrow is a multi-disciplinary artist working across sculpture, hardware hacking, printmaking, and sound art. His work uses sound as both a poetics and a material to research the liminal spaces of cultural memory and suspect histories. Utilizing concepts such as resonance, feedback, and transmission, Farrow sounds these spaces through various material means and aims to set them vibrating.

  • Alcohol Fuelled Violence - Gary Wilkinson

    7th November 2017 @ 11:30 pm - 12:00 am

    programme/artist information

    I’ve created a contemporary symphony called Alcohol Fuelled Violence that deals with asperger syndrome, epilepsy, violence in socially deprived areas, NHS surgery, loss and atonement.

    The symphony tells the story of what happened to my brother after he was the victim of an alcohol fuelled attack.

    I am a producer/artist from Northern England and I create orchestral music using cut-ups, layers and loops of public domain classical pieces.
