bodies. radio bodies: an exploration of (in)visible organs either yet in the state of becoming or already fading away. that are sensible. but intangible. in many ways.
the first part we're exploring the inner bodies of william burroughs:
"American novelist, short story writer, essayist, painter, and spoken word performer William S. Burroughs is sonically explored in this episode. Born 100 years ago and died in 1997, Burroughs' cut-up period — the mid-1950s to mid-1960s — is explored here, with a special focus on Burroughs use of bodies and diseases as transmission metaphors. Ronald De Feo wrote in Modern Occasions in 1972, 'in The Ticket that Exploded, he scatters among his short-winded and repetitive fantasies a metaphysics, an eschatology, a theory of possession by demonic tape recorders, a theory of sexuality, an assault on advertising as a form of brainwashing, the usual quota of flashbulb-and-firecracker sodomies, and some suggestions for mind-changing party games.' This show cuts-up Burroughs’ words and mixes them with other odd sounds and stories. Two in particular about the body as transmitter or receiver. The episode samples Lucille Ball, talking about her molar radio, and an episode of the 1960s American television show 'Gilligan’s Island' in which the title character’s tooth becomes a radio receiver. Then radio artist Anna Friz talks about whale radio, and other sonic signals sent by underwater creatures, from a talk in Toronto, Canada at the 'Trans-X Transmission Art Symposium.' Burroughs words on disease, bodies, and transmission are cut-up throughout the show." [T.R.]
afterwards, irena tomažin aka iT from ljubljana, is performing two of her pieces – "mouth sounds for heart beats" and "my two bodies are a buddy":
"[…] ..it’s natural that every time the voice fades away with an exhale… that it disappears… it’s natural that the voices passes in and out of silence, that it holds onto, joins, disjoins with its opposite, that it exists with the opposite… its time exists and extends over the time of compressing the air out … when the air is pressed out, the voice is too…even when sipping air, it comes out as smothered creaking…the voice pushes itself against silence…its duration is between an inhale and an exhale… in between, it is cut off, interrupted, it breaks… it immerses itself in an inhale only to exhale… the unnatural is being born and is dying." [I.T.]
