Transmissions, by Lona Kozik (for Soundart Radio) Part 1. Imagine that we are speeding away from the Earth Part 2. Music of our Spheres Transmissions is a radio piece that seeks to listen to the past. It is a collage of transmissions voyaging through human broadcast history and reaching past our own galaxy. The first part, Imagine that we are speeding away from the Earth, is based on the notion that everything we broadcast is still traveling from our planet out into space. As we move forward, we can hear our past. This section includes transmissions of all kinds, including Skype transmissions, mysterious numbers stations, broadcasts of rocket launches, interviews, songs, newscasts, popular songs, television themes, public service announcements, etc. The second part, Music of Our Spheres, uses recordings made by scientists interpreting readings from the Voyager and Cassini space probes. We hear sounds emitted by Earth (distinct whistlers shooting past and a “hiss” that sounds like breathing), Mars (small and metallic), Jupiter, and Saturn. The very last sound in the piece is the sound of the Big Bang as interpreted by Professor J. G. Cramer of Washington State University. Lona Kozik is a pianist, composer and radio maker. “I play things. I write things. Sometimes I do both at the same time. Sometimes I play the things I write, but often times, I don’t.” Fernando Fadigas, Inland (for Rádio Zero Lisbon) This soundscape composition is divided in two parts and is part of my sound research at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Lisbon during 2013. Undercurrent is about water sounds and is taken from an audiovisual installation shooting in a river showing a journey between two points A to B, after a deep dive inside an undercurrent river. InLand is a piece about earth sounds space and matter but also about internal and external space. A representation of different acoustic layers and sound environments. In this piece i processed different noises and samples taken from the interior of the earth. Many recordings with a real buried microphone and other substances like stone collisions, river undercurrents, sea waters, sand, fire, ashes, organic debris, frozen microphones and other deep acoustic phenomenas. It’s also a live improvisation and noise modulation of a boiling experience taken from a portable laboratory set up on stage. For sound processing i used Laptop, Ableton Live, Max/Msp, analog circuits and synthesizers like Mute Synth and Korg Monotron Delay. Premiered at EMS13, Electroacoustic Music in the Context of Interactive Approaches and Networks at CGD-Culturgest, Lisbon 2013. Fernando Fadigas is an audiovisual artist and noise musician. With preferences for collective works, site-specific projects and sound improvisation, their individual works lie in the relationship of sonic arts and image with exploitation of minimal soundscapes, noise, field recordings and the acoustic properties of certain spacesMember of the art collective “Pogo” since 1998 producing and developing soundtracks for Theatre, Multimedia Performances or Interactive Installations and also curating music and art events. jingles & presentation by Dr. Klang. more info; check our website klangendum.nl
