Alan Dunn: The Sounds of Ideas Forming, Volume 4 – Leaving

Alan Dunn, radio-artist and assistant professor at the Leeds Beckett University, is one of our regular contributors. As an assistant professor he is involved in comunal projects and workshops of which the result is, often, a gesamtkunstwerk of audio and sculpture, or a radio-play. Examples of these works are broadcasted by us on an irregular basis. As a radio-artist he contributes with collages, but of such quality that the nominator ‘collage’ should be extended to works of art, that are completely made of borrowed pieces of music and spoken word, resulting…

Tape Review Show – Special on Tape label Tutore Burlato (parts 1 & 2)

I first heard about Ezio Piermattei through a review by Ed Pinsent in his Sound Projector. He wrote about one of his works: “created from “voice, objects, instruments, tapes, electronics, etc.” this is a highly perplexing and unfathomable trawl through sound-episodes of great absurdity and surprise…we never really understand what we’re hearing, how it’s made, or what it means, but it’s impossible to stop listening…here…” Since I trust Ed’s taste and insight I decided to get in touch with Ezio. After an exchange of works, my curiousity grew when I…

Sounds for the post-peak Oil, #11 by Anne-F Jacques

This new episode of Sounds for the post-peak Oil by our Montréal based friend Anne-F Jacques is another work of Radio Art that balances on notions of mail art, domestic silence and fragments from an Audio Diary. The result is intimate as a morning smelling of coffee and the arrival of autumn and as intriguing as the first steps into a new town. You can become a part of Anne-F’s work of sounds by simply sending her Audio by snail mail. You might get a cassette in return, as Anne…

Anne F Jacques – Sounds for the Post Peak Oil, episode 10

Anne F. Jacques’ shows are all about care. You can deduct from the ‘playlist’ here below how every single sound gets its place in the wonderfull gallery she composes from it. There is more behind this. Anne has created one of the most exclusive and at the same time inclusive cassette labels I know of. Far away from the digital representation, the hip and the hype it exists only as that what it is: a tape with music on it, a wrap with stamped information and a few illustrations that…

Radio On Lost, a radioplay by Adrian Shephard and Rinus Van Alebeek

From the depths of the Radio On Archive comes a radio show by Shephard and Van Alebeek that probably never reached any listener at all. What starts as an outburst of total confusion evolves into a radioplay, in which Shephard and Van Alebeek become radionauts lost in space. Their only salvation is to follow the radiowaves. They go down in a cosmic storm of voices, end up in distant civilisations, transform into radio particles, pick up conversations, but they never seem to find ground. Comes with a haunting sound track….

The Ben Roberts Show (part 2 of a trilogy on Ben Roberts and his found tapes)

In the second instalment of a special on Ben Roberts and his vast archive of found tapes we hear Ben introduce his work. Ben Roberts, a Brit in Madrid has been collecting found tapes ever since his youngest youth. What started in thrift stores in his hometown has developed into a fascination that borders at science. Gifted with a hypered sense of being able to read and see into the world that unspools before his very ears, he detects the signs of the past times. In the Ben Roberts Show he…

HCut up Paper Economy, collage of voices and visions by Markus Stein

Markus Stein does these things. He uses recordings he made in which people talk about their experiences as a youngster in the newly formed Germany (when the BRD and the DDR were glued together). And he uses snippets of interviews in which we hear talk about radio art and the sense of it all. And somewhere in between all the voices you will hear strange cut-up collaging soundbits that form new pieces of contemporary music. Is there a hidden message? Is there a hidden message in all the words that…

Don`t DJ & Glauser – Live Radio Session on Air, Berlin

On Saturday the 7th of November Andreas Glauser returned to Berlin. With some feeling for understatement he proposed to organise a collision. That’s what you do when you’re from Switzerland. During sixty minutes Don DJ and Glauser let Sequencer collide with Synthesizer, effects and noise – live from the Oranien Studio. The results sounded like solar flares, rusty bicycles on Mars up to the approach to and landing on The Forbidden Planet Adrian Shepard was on the microphone to introduce the session.

Rinus Van Alebeek presents Radio di Vetro -Trilogy-

  Radio di Vetro is a three part radio program, that was first broadcasted live from Rome. It was an unofficial official part of the Teatri di Vetro festival. The three parts are called Masquerade A Short History of Theatre Cut Heads Cut Money   While in Masquerade the content is made up of tape noises put together in an abstract collagist way, the second and third part are informative and give insight in power relations and historic characters (fictional or not). The third, conclusive part contains a manifesto of…
