eine reihe von klangkunst-exkursionen, die uns in und durch belgische städte führt. eine jede mehr als die summe ihrer teile – was natürlich erst recht für die ganze radiokunststunde gilt.
zunächst stellt vincent matyn-wallecan seine gesammelten klangcollagen aus unterschiedlichen belgischen städten vor: binche, mechelen, sint amands, eupen, namur.
für den zweiten teil der sendung haben studenten mitschnitte ihrer audio-installationen für das projekt "tuned city" zu einer radiophonen klangcollage zusammengestellt.

travelling belgium by a series of sound art excursions. each more than the sum of its parts – which is, of course, also true for the whole hour of radio art.
first vincent matyn-wallecan is presenting his collection of sound collages:
"Wether you’re about to, already have or will be listening to this piece, BE scape is a collage of recordings made at various places in Belgium on different moments over the past four years.
Binche, Mechelen, Sint amands, Eupen, Namur.
Carnavals, bell towers, riverboats, music school courtyards are superposed and mixed together in the form of a sound stroll.
Adults interact on public places, children play, everything is peaceful, until now." [V.M.W.]
Credits: Thanks to Mélanie Godin, Cécile Ibarra and Jacques Darras.
for the second part of the show RITS students have built a radiophonic collage upon their sound installations for the "tuned city" project:
"The re-entry of XL AIR is a show that consists of various excerpts from radio pieces the RITS radio students made in order to document their installations made for the Brussels version of Tuned City, a platform which proposes an examination of the relations between architecture and sound.
The project draws the traditions of critical discussion about urban space within the architecture and urban planning discourse–as well as its strategies and working methods–into the context of sound art. This expanded discussion reenforces the potential of the spatial and communicative properties of sound as a tool and means of urban practice.
At the foundations of this event are artists’ works and theoretical approaches which examine in a critical and sensitive way the given urban and architectural situations alongside their resulting socio-political implications, that re-use existing spaces or that conceive and open new spaces.
A dialogue will be built at the intersection of both disciplines which traces out the complex relations and interactions of space-sound, both presenting and testing new strategies, methods, possibilities and potentials of sound work within the artistic and applied context." [D./XLA]
