credits und hintergrundinformationen: siehe unten
die nächste radiator-sendung wird am
freitag, 16. april 2010 von 15-16 uhr ausgestrahlt.
in example: sender and receiver. two times ahoy as the message that directs the dialogue between the two:
"'Ahoy! Ahoy!' these are the words that are considered to be the first words that were transmitted by telephone. The composition analyzes different communication systems and information flows. The piece was first performed on the internet via digital transmission. So the two performers acted as a sender and a receiver at the same time. Afterwards the tracks had been transformed into a special form to accommodate the communication structure of radio. " [M.P./M.H.]
and in part two: two turntables. between the two: a landscape. or perhaps two?
"From all the possible outcomes this is just one of them. Two turntables to make one landscape.
The turntables has a companion history with radio. For a long time, before the advent of clean and sanitized studios and the contact with the physical record was abstracted to bits and bites, the needle jumped on the groove and squided through the spiral of sound. Pedro Lopes paired two of these old tools of work and made them talk to each other. From all the possible outcomes this is just one of them. Two turntables to make one landscape." [P.L./R.R.]
