Show 585 – Memento (Radio-Zero)

EPSON MFP image

Memento by Abdul Moimême.

This radio piece is what its title implies: a reminder of persons and past events, which in the present case are autobiographical as well as musical; occurrences that span a period of over 30 years and recede back to some early field recordings I did in Madrid in the early eighties.
It also served as a reflection regarding to what extent composition and free improvisation can overlap. For example, certain sections started as improvisations but were here rearranged in a composed form.
The idea was to choose motifs and work with these much as an engraver might approach a new uncharted etching, unaided by the outline of preliminary sketches, allowing each stroke to freely imply the next. Nonetheless, some sections were specifically composed for the occasion.

Composed and mixed by Abdul Moimême

Abdul Moimême is a Lisbon based musician and active member of the cities free im-provisation scene. His main instrument is the electric guitar. He has also worked as a jazz writer, since 1999, writing in various Portuguese publications such as Flirt, All Jazz and Jazz.pt magazines, as well as the Público newspaper. In 2014 he is nomination in the “6th Annual International Critics Poll”.
He has performed in several projects such as: Hipnótica, IKB, Insub Meta Orchestra, Potlatch, Queixas, Suspensão, and Variable Geometry Orchestra. He has also performed and/or recorded with musicians such as: Axel Dörner, Carlos Santos, Carlos Zingaro, Christian Weber, Christophe Berthet, Cyril Bondi, D’Incise, Ernesto Rodrigues, Floros Floridis, Gale Brand, George Haslam, Heddy Boubaker, Jon Raskin, Ken Filiano, Manuel Mota, Marco von Orelli, Marco Scarassatti, Patrick Brennan, Rodrigo Amado, Steve Adams, Thanos Chrysakis and Wade Matthews.
He has also performed in Austria, Brazil, France, Portugal, Spain and Switzerland.

Mixed by Joaquim Monte at Namouche.

Show 584 – Casting, by Soundart Radio, Devon, UK

 

casting

 

 

 

 

 

 

Broadcasting as spell casting – sending out our intentions into the atmosphere, allowing them to fall where they need to, affect who they may, and communicate our deeper desires, even when wrapped in other text, and encoded into radio waves or digital data.

At Radio V&A  – an evening event at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, February 2016 – we invited people to think about their true messages, whilst reading and recording other texts. These texts, together with sine waves selected to stimulate change in the world, form sonic sigils, carriers for our plans and desires.

Thanks to all the contributors who attended our workshop, and to the Victoria and Albert Museum.

The Greek Orthodoxs were celebrating the Koimesis. Koimesis means ‘dormition’. A sacred condition between sleep and death. Koímêsis forms a book of thirty-nine short poems on political and physic apathy, the sun, the beauty and the morbid. » (luvan, may 2016)

Poems in French : luvan
Greek translation : Iota Gaganas
The Choir : luvan, Iota Gaganas, Carine Demange, Anne Lepère, Chloé Despax, Anna Raimondo and Deena Abdelwahed (as Moniek team and guests).

Show 581: Echoing Yafa (radioart106fm KolHaCampus)

EchoingYafaIMG

Miriam Schickler’s audiowalk Echoing Yafa (played here in part) follows Marconi’s thought that sounds never die but grow progressively fainter. Imagine that all the sounds that have ever resonated inthis region, she writes, still reverberate somewhere, however faintly.

Echoing Yafa recovers some of those sounds and relocates them to the place that they originated from, Manshiyyah, once a busy neighbourhood of Jaffa and a place that, except for the remnants of two buildings, today is visually no longer conceivable and is usually considered to be a part of Tel Aviv.

Echoing Yafa tells the stories of some of the former Palestinian residents of Manshiyyah and thereby re-enacts what has been destroyed and irreversibly changed throughout the events leading to, and during the war of 1947/1948, and by current processes of displacement and dispossession of the Palestinian community in today’s Jaffa. Visit echoingyafa.org for the complete audio walk in Arabic, Hebrew and English.

Thanks to the refugees of Manshiyyah and the rest of Yafa, as well as their family members. This work is dedicated to them and all other refugees.
