Radia 42 – Tilos

International Language Course from Beginner to Master

Artist: Antal Vida / vidatoni
Radio: Radio Tilos/Radio Tordas
Year: 2006
Total Time: 56:16
:: no jingle ::

It is a great challenge for a sound-sculptor usually juggling with words and sentences to produce a mix that is enjoyable for listeners of any mother-tongue. This is why in the first five minutes you are taught some Hungarian, then you get to the advanced level. I promise you get to the level of a native speaker in an hour! Naturally, the information is filled into your brain in brotherly portions, and in every five minutes you are taken for a face wash in the music of the most refreshing European languages.

Vidatoni is a sound artist, doing both talkradio and radioart in Tilos. He is also running his very own small community radio (Radio Tordas) from his livingroom in his home village near Budapest, while his garden houses the only local cinema in the neighbourhood, making it one of the most enviable ones at that. Yes, indeed, he has the kind of rare ability to make people speak the same language.

About Resonoria

res=republic
sonoria=sound

Anti-utopic static story about a country-airport,
The whole political moral is manifested in forcing absurd sound limits,
frequency sell, prison for violators.
Anti-utopia aimed at the airport of all sound experimentalists, full of
bites- like the name of the airport is called ” frequenz shumen” (shumen is
“noisy” in bulgarian). of course the end the naivety smashes the airport and
ends the game.

Radia Season 5 show 1 (Radia 40) from Resonance FM
Dead by Dawn
This radio piece by Tom Wallace deals with clinical reports of people (mainly young drug abusers) who die whilst in hospital. The reading of their unfortunate medical histories is underscored with an electronic music composition made from hospital noises. The piece has been played once on Resonance fm, but was hidden in a larger programme due to the sensitiity of the theme.

Radia #39

“wien wie es klingt” by Gerhard Rühm
the radioplay “wien wie es klingt” places 24 significant listening spots of the austrian capital vienna into the framework of a daily routine – something like an acoustic equivalent to two sets of postcards. it begins in the early morning with the arrival at the railway station. the thematic middle of the piece is marked by the ringing of the bells of st. stephen’s cathedral in the center of the city at noon, and the piece ends in the late evening with the departure from the airport at schwechat. strewn in between is a tourist programme which could hardly be accomplished in one day. a compressed 47 minute sequence was distilled from the 12 hours of recording and arranged roughly chronologically with regard to normal visiting times in the morning, afternoon, and evening but precluding any kind of realistic plot by making geographical leaps all over the city. Produced in 1991/1992 for the series METROPOLIS at the WDR, Köln (Studio for Akustischer Kunst) in co-production with ORF Kunstradio, Wien. http://www.kunstradio.at/1992A/18_6_92.html

[radia 035] kanal 103, skopje

part one: song about a bird
artist: marko stoimenov and friends

song about a bird was started as experimental film project. its recorded at marko stoimenovs (video artist) apartment in belgrade when he and his friends was having fun after some film festival or after party… and spontaneously started to shoot things that they were doing with a camera. his room is surrounded with dvd surround system so when they were shooting the stuff they were playing, sound was delayed thru the surround system, going in circle and making strange delay effect. they were playing guitar, other strange home prepared instruments and stuff that produces sound as well as singing. a girl from brazil was singing lyrics from some song called about a bird which can be the name of this project. other markos friends were included, like artist vladimir lukash from skopje. you can also hear singing and talking on serbian and macedonian. marko showed me this videos when i was staying at his place in belgrade and i was thinking that it is really interesting also as a sound. exactly there is a story behind this brazilian poem but i cant remember what was it… listen to it and imagine the story. its up to u… as always

Radia 031 by Not That Kyd – Radio Cult

An attempt at radio art, this program purposes to make you shake in your seat. You might get angry you might want to hug someone, you might want to cover your ears or you might just sit back and listen.
Our host, Kyd, thought its partly inappropriate that a foreigner be making a Bulgarian show so she invited a special Bulgarian guest. Donku is a private music teacher who trained at the Bulgarian National Academy for Music. He shared with us his thoughts about the sounds he was listening.
So join us and enjoy your waffles, glitches, creeping ivy and have the funniest 56 minutes ever.

Radia 031 is available in 2 versions from (only compression differs):
