Radia 52 – a travellog of the radio sprectrum

One of the motivations of art is undoubtly an affirmation about human relations. This program is an experiment and a call-out for people to send their messages to the airwaves. You can figure it out to be just a political stance but it is more properly viewed as a demonstration of the use of radio for voicing opinions and points of view. The program is by Luis Silva, one of Radio Zero programmers.

The adventures of Khaosz Kapitany

The Adventures of Khaosz Kapitany is the craze of our Sunday nights at Tilos – as it has been for 7 years. The general concept of the show is to gather rare music, sounds, voices and use the characteristics of the studio space – with its gadgets, and Sunday-night hangers around reading auspicious texts to create strange atmospheres.

The present compilation is a mix of music by Nino Rota, Felix Kubin, Sam and the Pharaoes, Alice Coltrain, Albert Einstein Commitee, Ganja Cru, Stock Hausen and Walkman, together with sound fragments picked from old horror videos, radio soap operas and avantgarde poetry with some instrumentral improvisation by Hungarian band leader Dr.Marias. This part is a sample from their special “Menza Brothers – Dadaist Culture Revue” – live instruments, with record manipulation and effects – and two voices reading-yelling found texts – with Khaosz Kapitany at the controls.
Beware… mostly in Hungarian.
OK, basically, it takes you through the purgatory, and …. let’s see what happens at the end.

Radia 044 – essays on Radio (can I have two minutes of your time?)

From RIIST – Future Radio Zero

(the nera maling list as the directions for the treasure chest…)

From Cronica (the folks who did this)

“Essays on Radio aims to comment on the sound medium, on the technology
and the culture of radio.

In the midst of media saturation, radio can easily end by being an
overlooked medium, not only due to its lower visibility compared to
most mainstream media but mostly because it is an un-visual medium. It
is also one of the longer standing and of the oldest electronic media
that is still alive, so the novelty factor is not a help.

Radio was the first broadcast medium, as well as the first that was
sound-specific and intangible. Historically, radio was the primary
responsible for an awareness of sound that went beyond the strict scope
of music.

Radio is a saturated live medium, where much happens simultaneously.
Having little or no control about the sources and the interferences
during broadcast and reception turns radio into a medium where we can
easily and objectively experience noise. Therefore, it was probably
through radio that many first heard white noise. It was probably with a
radio receiver that many first modulated noise as it was probably
through radio that we experienced randomness along with the lack of
control and indeterminacy.

This theme was intended to provide the artists with a starting point to
approach the work. Unlike we did in the previous compilation, there
would be no audio sources provided to the artists beforehand. In this
release, what we were looking for were not exercises on composing from
shaping any given sound matter but rather on relating the musical
pieces to this particular context: Radio.

As a further way to coherently organize the CD, we asked all the
artists to produce the pieces with a fixed duration. This symbolic
length allowed us to fit work from some of the artists we released so
far and a few selected guests and it also served as a strong structure
binding all the compositions together. Given the fact that we are
closing the 2nd year of Crónica releases, we proposed that all tracks
should have the fixed duration of 2 minutes, exactly.

Therefore the sub-title: Can I have two minutes of your time?”

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
