live (landscapes for two) radia #490: hervé moire & JP + radia #117: two turntables to make one landscape
on how to build landscapes of sound. unfolding in(to) space. charging it with life. temporarily and ephemeral – passing just as quickly as they are vanishing again. yet, something remains.
And another time we're looking into the sky. Not to count the clouds. But to continue with our observations on drones…
Humm, humm, the Bees? No, not really – this time we won't spend the afternoon in our lovely RadioGarden. Rather, it's just the association with the hymenopterous insects and their hum that leads us to our issues for today: Unmanned flight objects, raising into the air with a different mission…
theremin transformations radia #478: theremidi orchestra + radia #199: our domestic radiation
oscillatory circuits, electromagnetic fields – and an instrument that is played without ever touching it: the theremin.
since 1919 it's ethereal sounds are mesmerizing us again and again and anew. also for it is being played in various new and different ways. like today…
ex sonification radia #372 sound within sound + radia #301 resonant space
sonic experiments. (with)in sound. in space. in sounding spaces.
first with andrea jane cornell who inivites us to think about the way radio is being created within radio:
"Radio is created where radio is listened to. Ckut's Andrea Jane Cornell takes the listener out of conventional listening spaces and ways of thinking about hearing and listening. Using our on air broadcasting studio with its equipment as a complex musical instrument, she brings us
sound within sound." [RCK]
afterwards, david strang is another time experimenting with sound (with)in space in a former wind channel:
"This work is a sonic representation of the space Q121. A space built and designed for the most efficient flow of air at speeds of up to 150 mph. The site was specifically chosen since the movement of air is a form of sound. […] Q121 was decommissioned in 1996 and has sat unused, dark and silent for more than a decade. Built in 1935 it was used in a wide variety of tests on structures such as, propellers, helicopter rotors and architectural features.
The method for creating and collecting the sound refers back to Alvin Lucier's 'I am sitting in a room' (1969). Inside Q121 a recording was made. This recording was then played back into Q121whilst being recorded again. As this cycle was repeated the layers of air became denser until, slowly, the space began to reveal a drone with various overtones determined by the physical dimensions of Q121." [D.S.]
miss.gunst would like to thank the following artists and sound collectors:
jovica for the space machine, corsica s for some beautiful radiator sounds;
andrea jane cornell and radio ckut, montréal, for making us listen to radio within radio;
david strang and soundart radio, dartington, for sending us through the wind channel;
as well as radia.fm radio art network for being a crowd of incredibly creative partners.
miss.gunst is opening her digital dust diaries to pursue her studies in the history of instruments.
