#110. Een programma over onafhankelijke geluidskunst, radiofonische projecten en andere audio-non-visuele misverstanden en vondsten. Met speciale aandacht voor ‘Stretch Limo’s’ en ‘Moeras’ van Martijn Comes, Martin Reints en Annette Kouwenhoven. Plus het werk van Wolfgang Fuchs ‘Turning towards sonic Impressions’.
1. ‘Stretch Limo’s’ en ‘Moeras’. 2. Turning towards sonic Impressions. Jingles bij Mrs Klangendum herself more info; ‘Stretch Limo’s’ en ‘Moeras’. Text: Martin Reints, Music & Sound: Martijn Comes Commissioned by: WORM Rotterdam / Klangendum Studios / Lukas Simonis In close cooperation with: Concertzender Nederland and Anette Kouwenhoven Special thanks to: Lukas Simonis, Hessel Veldman, Sem de Jongh, Katja Stam, Fani Konstantinidou. A collaboration between Martijn Comes (soundtrack) and Martin Reints (text). The soundtrack is made in the Worm / Klangendum studios using own sound design, features of the analogue WORM studio and various field recordings. In a live performance at the first presentation of the project Annette Kouwenhoven (Maatschappij Discordia) read the text, in the studio version Martin Reints reads the text himself. The text consists of two poems (‘Stretch Limo’s’ and ‘Moeras’) which together form a diptych; after the pieces followed by a making-of in which Martijn Comes, Annette Kouwenhoven and Martin Reints let their thoughts run free about the project. In the soundscape is enclosed ‘The Labyrinth’ of Pietro Locatello (‘easy to enter, hard to get out). Martijn: “I met Martin Reints during one of his lectures. His presentation is impressive for me because a lot of his work comes from a silence in which I feel safe. Where the mundane and worldly ends, and where a purely poetic consciousness exists of the invisible. Martin and I are both fans of Barry Bermange his work with Delia Derbyshire (collaboration with the BBC Radiophonic Workshop). In his interest of this radiophonic work existed also the urgency to invite him to create two broadcasts for the Concertzender as a producer of the Inventions for Radio programme. I spent a long time looking for texts that put me in the right concentration for this commission. I called Martin after a long time searching, and he told me that he had just finished two long works: ‘Stretch Limo’s’ and ‘Moeras’. I was instantly excited; they appeared to be two long poems that lend themselves perfectly to a musical accompaniment. They are very meditative texts and the image is very strong and elegant.
‘Turning towards sonic impressions’. An impressionistic turntabling view onto Buenos Aires by Wolfgang Fuchs at Buenos Aires What is left if you want to make a soundscape-piece but find yourself in the overwhelming soundscape of a city that cannot be acoustically depicted by the collected footage? Wolfgang Fuchs solved this dissonance with another sound-tool placed in ephemera. He turned towards his turntables and drew a clear acoustic line of the constant “wrumm “of a somehow different megacity that seems to be bedded in low frequency clouds, unfolded and broken in distortion. In 2015 Lale Rodgarkia-Dara and Veronika Mayer went on an electrocoustic-literature tour through Argentina. One of the outcomes was a spontaneous artist-exchange with a local gallery in Buenos Aires. Quickly a Sonic-Art- Residency was created and even quicker Wolfgang Fuchs convinced a small jury with his work. Wolfgang has been staying at PANAL 361 since the end of August and is involved in several artistic approaches. Some successful, some stressful, all different.
