neighbourhoods. and neighbours.
in naples, where times and radio-activities lapse and get involved into frictions:
"Radio ZEIT is a sound composition which aims to use the radio spectrum as a mechanism of time exploration. […] The composition has a soul linked to deeper interactive quotient variation in results depending on space and time of detection. […]
This sound piece aims to build a soundscape through a repeatable practice within various territorial circumstances. We tried to depict/record a fresco sound of Naples; what emerges is a sort of local 'agenda setting' of the medium, that reflect its multifaceted nature and comes out of a mix of both sports radio programs and neighborhood stations, both music of "neomelodici" and national mainstream." [P.N./P.N.]
in lisbon, where the inhabitants of the first floor do it.
"This work crosses three layers: 1) Recording inside a taxi […] 2) Fragments of the 'Song of Solomon' (King James version) […] 3) Recordings selection of my first-floor neighbours, who emit in a non-stop basis, in closed circuit, the most varied insults and agressions which translation would become injurious.
There is also a dog and its transfiguration." [P.C.]
miss.gunst would like to thank the following artists and sound collectors:
pasuqale napolitano, paolo napolitano and radio papesse, firenze, for time traveling to the neighbourhoods of napoli;
pedro coelho and radio zero, lisbon, for listening to the neighbours from the first floor;
as well as radia.fm radio art network for being a crowd of incredibly creative partners.
