radia #443: random time radio time + radia #329: bratislava short cuts
[pls. scroll down for english version]
radiozeitzonen. zunächst eine, in welcher der zufall regiert und die regler steuert. dann eine andere, die sich im raum aufzulösen scheint.
im ersten teil der sendung kommt das reenactment der aufzeichnung einer live-radioperformance zu gehör, mit der im sommer im rahmen des festivals ADDICTED2RANDOM in halle zeit gebeugt wurde.
so auch im zweiten teil – und doch ganz anders, da hier noch einmal das TIK radio art kollektiv in bratislava nach wegen sucht, welche sie durchqueren.

radiio time zones. one directed by random. and another one slowly dissolving into space.
RANDOM TIME RADIO TIME is based on a live radio performance staged at the händelhaus in the festival's open glasshouse studio, the audible parts being broadcasted in real time by radio corax. while certain elements of the clockwork were set with an archive consisting of compositions inspired by principles of time and/or random as well as various recordings of clocks, the mechanism itself was directed by random and time. there were six channels running in an autonomous random mode, playing each piece full time – but inaudible both for the public and the performer. the signal to switch into listening mode was delegated to special dice (six for the hours, six for the minutes, and six for the seconds), thrown from time to time to insert random time. additionally, during the whole time of the performance astandard mechanical clocks were transformed into (un)clocks.
it is said the original performance lasted for 2 hrs and 20 minutes standard time, which was a pre-set timeslot within the festival. the time frame of radia pieces is 28 minutes standard time. seems like radio has a great potential to become a mechanism of RANDOM TIME. at the same time it is still ruled by standard time. but then what about the sounds set free? listen. listen closely: what time is it? what time is yours? if we all do pass anyway: would you pass it to random? you still have the choice.

for the second part of the show, we take a shortcut to "BRATISLAVA SHORTCUTS", the first production of TIK radio collective:
in march 2011, members from of TIME INVENTORS' KABINET (TIK) met in bratislava for a week of collective research on radio as a tool for investigating alternate traces of time.
we used a wide range of methods (a.o. city walks, field recordings, investigations in individual as well as collective imaginations, deliberate data dreaming) to explore topics like time bending, hazy time, wind time, lichen clocks, ecotime zones, shortcuts – the latter to become the focus topic for our radio show.
based on our observations and findings we developed, performed and broadcast a live radio show on friday, march 18, 2011, as part of the research week's public closing event at hacklab progressbar.
TIK radio 'bratislava shortcuts' is a collaborative effort by
Guy van Belle (BE), Michal Cudrnak (SK), Nina Czegledy (HU), Barbara Huber (AT/SK), Kruno Jost (HR), Marton Andras Juhasz (HU), Michal Kindernay (CZ), Laszlo Kiss (HU), Verena Kuni (DE), and Jürgen Rendl (AT/SK).

TIME INVENTORS' KABINET (TIK)
is a collaborative artistic research project at the intersections of ecology, art, and media,
taking an ecological approach to observing patterns in time and time control systems.

Both shows are part of the TBC RADIO series. TBC RADIO is radio on time.
since summer 2010, TIME BENDING CLOCK RADIO is one of the active mechanisms of the TIME BENDING CLOCK, a research project and tool looking at alternate theories and practices of measuring time, operating at the intersections of art, media, cultural history and the history of science.
