Inventions For Radio #11. Radio Spaces Workshop by Udo Noll.
An impression of a workshop by Udo Noll named "Radio Spaces" which was held in Prague from 1 till 8 October 2012. Participants: Julie Faubert, Marketa Lisa, Peter Cusack, Mathias Straub, Prokop Vondruska, Constantine Katsiris, Eva Jaskova. ‘Aside from many others, an intriguing aspect of radio is its connectivity, the ability to create an almost spatial presence, among a virtual community of listeners, and of the media itself. The elaborated dials of old receivers may tell a story about this relation between space and the self, they are maps of a sonic landscape centred around an open ear. In recent years, practices around radio production, distribution and listening have changed due to the presence and availability of the internet. Radio aporee investigates these new radio spaces, and proposes field recording for the engagement with sites and environments, in order to explore and develop new forms and formats. The aim of the workshop is to produce a piece of radio art, that takes its material and subject from public space, and reflects the conditions and possibilities of an extended sensorial radio. During the workshop, participants will gather and record found sounds, voices and noises, as well as occasional sonic interventions, at street corners, backyards and other urban wastelands. The material will be organized within the radio aporee framework and processed for later distribution on various radio stations.’ Nvisisci: Bells of Sint-Bavokerk (Haarlem, NL / 2009) – 01:14.
