Show 472: UIOR (Radio Corax)

UIOR belongs to the experimental German-Russian Noiseart-scene and mixed a heaven&hell-set for Radio Corax and radia.fm

In the last years UIOR started to work with frequencies beyond our audible range – silent sounds effectively … – UIOR doesn’t work for music-labels anymore but joined different fine art ensembles in St. Petersburg and Tallinn.

Show 470: The Exquisite Corpse by various producers (Campus Paris)

By Man Ray, Joan Miro, Max Morise, Yves Tanguy

The first Campus Paris programme for the Radia network is a cadavre exquis or exquisite corpse inspired by the Surrealist game invented in Paris in 1925. It is similar to  the game Consequences in which players write in turn on a sheet of paper, fold it to conceal part of the writing, and then pass it to the next player for a further contribution. This version takes the exquisite body not only as technique but also the inspiration for the piece. Regular Campus Paris contributors have teamed together to produce a series of short audio sequences and will only hear the whole programme at the end when the segments are unfolded and revealed to the listener.

Face & Brain by Mélanie Péclat
Chest & Arms by Joyce Conroy-Aktouche & François Bordonneau
Stomach : Charles-Henri Despeignes.
Legs & Feet by Marine Beccarelli & Lise Come
Skin & Bones by Charlène Nouyoux

Special thanks to Dinah Bird, indispensable oxygen.

Featuring young Kothari, still in utero (it’s a boy!)

Show 469: concrète, by Jacques Soddell (Radio One 91 FM)

radia season 32, show #469 (radio one 91FM. dunedin, new zealand), playing from march 24 to march 31, 2012.

concrète

by Jacques Soddell

A suite illustrating my abstract narrative “cinema for the ears” style of musique concrète using processed field recordings to create new sounds & textures, with an improvised interlude separating my compositions.

Comprising:

1. Les grenouilles – based on a piece I composed for a live gig in the Conservatory in Bendigo’s Rosalind Park in 2013, using manipulations/processing of frog sounds, some voice manipulations and the unprocessed sound of rustling leaves. You won’t hear the original unprocessed frogs. (10:27).
2. Improv with Viv Corringham, New York based British vocalist/sound artist. An excerpt from our performance at the undue noise gig at the Old Fire Station, Bendigo, in February 2014, using Ableton Push to control my electroacoustic samples (8:27).
3. Paralysed – composed in 2013 was inspired by the artistic paralysis I felt while waiting for a collaborator to deliver material I needed for our joint project. Performed in Melbourne in January 2014, it contains “randomly” selected processed & unprocessed samples from many sources (8:07).

Jacques Soddell

I’m an Australian sound artist, based in regional city Bendigo. I produce computer-based electroacoustic music, with a particular interest in deconstructing natural sounds (field recordings) to create new sounds & textures, which I then assemble into abstract narrative soundscapes (usually composed, but sometimes improvised). I produce sound & video for theatre, dance, live performance and installation and am also passionate about promoting experimental art, hence my past involvement with the film society movement (bendigo film group (1976-1988), promotion of experimental music in the local community through the undue noise concert series (2002 – present), presenting possible musics, an experimental music radio program on local community radio (1983-2013)), and involvement in live arts group Punctum, With my wife, Fran, I investigated music based on Lindenmayer Systems modelling of fungal growth and also run sound art label cajid media (with the help of my daughter, sound artist Thembi Soddell). I was a microbiologist in a former life, specialising in the microbiology of wastewater treatment, but left this field about 10 years ago to concentrate on sound art. Examples of my work can be found on soundcloud and vimeo.

Show 466: Plutôt que rien

Rather than nothing. By Luc Méhari. Dedicated to Etienne Noiseau.
Silence doesn’t exist. Even less in a radio studio. Even less with an ageing analog mixer. Even less when you play with switches, streaming, phones and other feedbacks. There is always something rather than nothing.

Show 465: WJM cuts for Radio Papesse

This week show is a special cutandslice produced by WJM for Radio Papesse coming as series of outtakes form her album NO

Roberta WJM Andreucci is a percussionist, an experimental producer and DJ, and on air personality. She has more than twenty year of experience organizing and promoting alternative music events. She practices plagiarism and the cutting and mixing of musical and ambiental aural sources. Early in her career she started focusing on the use of voices and on vocal metalinguism, focalizing on her personal practice of “cuttingandslicing” and on rhythm patterns obtained through an improper use of her tools of the trade (cdjs, cd
player, md, mics, mixer).
Through the years her percussion set morphed into a hybrid encompassing a dj booth, a radio dj one, a microphone station for electroacustic experiments, and a mnemonic butcher’s slab.
She is a founding member of performing music units such as Jealousy Party, Semerssuaq, The Secretaries and Sistemi Audiofobici Burp.
She is the director of the music label Burp Publications.

Show 463: Radio Nova presents Overture by Lutz Rainer Mueller and Stian Ådlandsvik

The artists Stian Ådlandsvik and Lutz-Rainer Müller invited two musicians from the Swedish Chamber Orchestra on a road trip from Leipzig to Örebro to play music composed by Johann S. Bach in the car. In this movable mini-concert house, a flute and a cello played compositions written by Bach hundreds of years ago, while the Mercedes engine played the compositions of the motorway. Travelling through three countries, the audience for this concert was maybe just the distance and the velocity of the motorway. Just like the speed of the car blurs details, human memory clouds events, time and distance. One can attempt to hold on to the memories, but the fading starts almost immediately, and goes on to rearrange and delete, until only fragments are left. The recording of this 16 hour drive/concert was compressed to a 30 minutes long sound art piece that reflect on movement, speed and memory.

Stian Ådlandsvik (b.1981) and Lutz-Rainer Müller (b. 1977) have worked together since 2006 and both hold degrees from the Oslo Academy of Fine Art. Ådlandsvik also attended the Hochschule für bildende Künste, Hamburg and Müller attended the Art Academy of Bergen and also holds a degree from the Muthesius Kunsthochschule in Kiel. Their collaborative work process often originates in particular situations or contexts which they either create for themselves or which they react on. As trusted collaborative partners, they use the very circumstance of them working together as a starting point for new ideas. Their reflection upon the collaboration itself becomes a key feature in their work. As a duo, they have exhibited broadly throughout Europe. They live and work in Oslo and Leipzig.
