Alan Dunn started his career on Radio On with radiophonic collages he had made in the early years of the noughties. Those collages can still be heard on our radio. They have a sense for the epic, contain anthems, bad weather, radio voices and memories of 45rpm’s turned grey.
Alan Dunn is also a teacher. As such he has been to Tallinn where he supervised the radiophonic work in progress by a group of sculpture students. Radio On is always happy to accept any proposal by Alan.
The work of the sculpture students is a surprising work of Audio Art, that will captivate the listener because of its variation of themes, the collagist nature and the very strong sense of structure.
We, your faithful administrators, hope sincerely that this will not remain a single production. It would be great to receive more works by a kind of ‘Tallinn Radiophonic Workshop.”
says Marti Kikojan
â€œWhat first came into our heads when trying to think about what it is that is invisible were invisible cloaks, vantablack, stealth type bomber designed in America, camouflage, the spirit world and everything that we are still unaware of. But first there was nothing directed to sound and hearing or listening, only visual or extra-sensual occurrences. So, the discovery of the invisible via sounds seemed like a refreshing challenge.
“And then it happened. On the Tuesday morning the mad professor who was directing us, our zen master, Alan Dunn, told us the breaking news that he just happened to have found from the metal scrap collection outside the sculpture department an object that has an international status and twenty-plus years back of history. It quite positively looked like it had been pushed on a hiatus because it had some nice corrosion trails running across it without a question. So we talked about it and decided that this sculpture had been invisible for four years. We would resurrect it and elect it to be the mascot for our sound project.”
“And that was the essential click that connected our practice and gave us an interesting theme â€“ invisible object. The sculpture we found is called â€˜Would you like to participate in an artistic experience?â€™ by Brazilian artist Ricardo Basbaum. Of course we wanted to participate because our master guru has taught us to say YES with a big smile to every challenge. And you never argue with a master. Thatâ€™s the whole point of it.”
