1. Radio Blab
Blab: talking thoughtlessly, revealing secrets, an indiscreet chatterbox.
Radio Blab welcomes you to the weirdest, yet most familiar, conversation of your life: the mental chatter taking place in one’s head, in all its absurdity, cruelty and brilliance.
Re#Sister collective members Tarik Speelman and Andromachi Kokkinou took upon the task of recording, collaging and mixing this experimental radioplay which takes the listener on an inner journey through industrial noises and ethereal soundscapes. Poetic, dissociative, aggressive, and tender, this recording is both an open invitation and a personal account.
About the creators:
Andromachi Kokkinou (GR/NL) works in the cultural field, wearing many hats.
She has a passion for independent publishing in all its forms and writes to balance her numerous contradictions. She works in publicity for the WORM Pirate Bay Archive. She collects her poetry, prose and artwork under the project i eat shapes. Andromachi has worked at the intersection of lgbtqi+ rights and education. Her involvement with Re#Sister started with the co-creation of the Re#Zinester publication, and continues with Radio Blab.
Tarik Speelman (NL) is a multidisciplinary artist. Focused on zine readings, dance and music, Tarik is on a journey of exploration to break with the patterns of childhood. His work is straight from the heart and his vehicle to reconnect with himself and others. Notable works: his album Inner View, live performances during Re#Sister’s “Testing the Waters” mini festival at Podium OCW, and his exhibition & performance “Edges Soften, Careful with Believing” at ONONO. He organises small zine making gatherings in Rotterdam.

2. Space – We -Space.
A binaural SoundWalk Composition by Radio Corax.
The city is music. Daily sounds become extraordinary by a shift in perspective. Just get a little bit closer. Objects speaking. Resonance is anywhere. Listen. Let go. Drift. And find a wonderful, creepy, and ensouled world in the hidden sounds.
This binaural field recording composition is based on a sound walk by Geräuschkulisse that took place on November 10, 2019, during Seanaps Festival for transdisciplinary music in Leipzig. The workshop explored the daily and hidden sounds of a post-industrial area close to an old train station that is now frequented for free-time activities. The composition is the result of a live on air experiment in the temporary online radio station of the festival. While Lena Löhr and Martina Weber were leading the 15 participants of the sound walk, Carina Pesch was wandering around as a microphone on two legs. Via streaming box she sent her collected sound treasures live to the studio where JD Zazie was sitting, modulating and composing in real time before airing the live composition. The original was a two hours radio show. The recordings were done using a set of binaural mics and a contact mic. All edited to half an hour of intensive listening, best with headphones.
