#82. Een programma over onafhankelijke geluidskunst, radiofonische projecten en andere audio-non-visuele misverstanden en vondsten.
1. Spaces to Act or Not. by: Nelly Matorina. I recently discovered Caroline Nevejan’s work on presence. In the piece 8 spaces to act or not, she divides presence into three parameters: now/not-now, here/not-here, you/not-you. I was taken by the option of now/here/not-you, the immediacy and intensity of being in ‘now’ and ‘here’ surrounded by not-you. This piece contains field recordings from places where I felt surrounded by “not-you” most and wanted to act (make a sound), and then versions of just those sounds without a place. It ends with a sacred moment, I witnessed a wedding in a church in a small town in Lithuania which was open to the public despite being a private ceremony. The wedding was only 8 people, and the song I walked in during was entrancing and futuristic. The piece contains readings from 8 spaces to act or not by Caroline Nevejan (http://www.being-here.net/page/745/8-spaces-to-act-or-not), and samples from Paras’ Memon’s A Story from their Self-titled EP, and M Mucci’s Days Blur Together. how.
2. First 100 Days. by; Julia Drouhin. In the sound environment of a new born. With a parliament of crows, bats and birds, family and friends. Julia Drouhin has been working with sound since 2003. She has investigated the haunted air of ghost towns through phono-memory, conducts voodoo sessions with records made of chocolate or ice, has glittered the catacombs of Paris, curated mini-FM events in both France and Spain, and performed with candyfloss clouds.
