#299. Onafhankelijke geluidskunst, radiofonische projecten en andere audio-non-visuele misverstanden en vondsten. Twee radia.fm shows.
1. USMARADIO & The School of Radio present Secondo John Cage.
2. This is a mistake! by Wiener Radia Kollektiv for Radio Orange 94.0.
USMARADIO is a workplace of The School of Radio to develop an innovative radio pedagogy. Workshops, work sessions, meetings, presentations of live performance as sections of the project.
During the White Night (Notte bianca) of the University of the Republic of San Marino, Alessandro Caccuri and Giulio Urbini – students of Unirsm Design – organized and directed the workshop event “Secondo John Cage (According to John Cage)”. This project is produced by USMARADIO and The School of Radio: based on the theory, field recording, live electronics and conduction. On the day of event, a group of participants (Unirsm students) recorded and post-produced sounds collected by exploring San Marino. The sounds became materials for this performance broadcasted live on USMARADIO’s stream, and the students have been faced – for the most of them was the first time in life – with microphones, sound machines, modular synths, controllers and radios. Even just taking a look to the images the fun and large involvement are showed: the project was such a special and exciting experience for everyone. Based on the success of event, many other workshop around sound and experimentation in the future are already planned.
The participants: Lorenzo De Fazio, Valentina Toccaceli, Federico Giulioni, Sirya Cardone, Miriana Cerenzia, Alessia Principi, Daniele Trebbi, Damiano Gennari, Roberto Alesi, Marco Maria Lucidi, Gianluca Torcolacci, Grazia Pestillo, Nicola Colomboni, Elena Porreca.
Technical director: Alessandro Renzi
The word “Glitch” is everywhere those days. In movies and TV shows, in clubs and galeries, on billboards, in magazines and all around the social network. Most people see it as a Digital failure, at best as a nice effect or plot device. But it’s so much more: Some kind of natural accuring Digital art. A new dynamic in modern Electronic music. A way to breech the boundries of the (Computer) system. A crack in the Utopian facade and a way to exploid the unknown possibilities of imperfection.
Peter Wetzelsberger and Lale Rodgarkia-Dara of the Wiener Radia Kollektiv attempted a brief history of Glitch, including some examples:
• The tracks loneloft, practice and Brunch mit Darwin by Austrian glitch artist Wolfwetz.
• Some alcohol induced Philosophic outbursts by Gregor Fröhlich, Dita Mukane and Stefan Nowak. (Examples of the brain as a corrupted system)
• Lale Rodgarkia-Dara’s failed interview with the theorist and feminist art curator Jelena Petrovic about the Glitch and the Dichotomy between the Digital and Analogue, supplemented by two Music pieces based on recordings with the counter-tenor Marin Vitas and a fan.
• The piece Biomechanics (raw data of Günther Witzany’s “Biocommunication and Natural Genome Editing”) and excerpts of Meine Kleine Nachtmusik, generated by Lale’s broken Intercom system.
