Show 654. OIDOS SORDOS – DEAF EARS. (TEA FM)

Although usual, the works of sound creation of TEA FM always look around to press the environment and look for those sounds that are hidden behind the silence or the screams, as both contaminate the speech and the listening.

In these days, almost all the sounds that arrive at any place of Europe from our latitudes refer to Catalonia.

IMAGE: El Periodico de Aragon. April 23th 1992. Aragonese people in front of Spanish Parliament, Madrid.

 

What is here called “train crash”, which is nothing more than a dialogue of the deaf in which neither party is able to hear the contrary to arrive at a valid conclusion, stifles any other claim or protest as valid or more like “Votarem”

This creative documentary that TEA FM puts in your ears is born of our own Aragonese identity. Aragon, an uninhabited territory (along with Lapland, of which the least inhabitants per square kilometer has in all Europe), with a proper language that is only speak by 12000 people and that is cataloged like the more reduced language than those that exist in Europe and a population of just over one million people aged and dispersed in a territory with the size of Switzerland.

What we put in your ears is not a claim program. Nor it meant to be informative. We just want you to listen to those sounds that exist and are not heard from the protests that have been produced and are taking place right now in Aragon for many years and are deaf to the media noise of who only wants public opinion to look in one other direction.

Because despite what it seems … NOT ALL HAPPENS IN CATALONIA

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Como es habitual, los trabajos de creación sonora de TEA FM miran a su alrededor para pulsar el entorno y buscar esos sonidos que quedan ocultos tras el silencio o los gritos, pues ambos contaminan el discurso y la escucha.

En estos días, casi todos los sonidos que llegan a cualquier lugar de Europa desde nuestras latitudes se refieren a Cataluña.

Lo que aquí se está denominando “choque de trenes” y que no es más que un diálogo de sordos en el que ninguna de las partes es capaz de escuchar al contrario para llegar a una conclusión válida, ahoga cualquier otra reivindicación o protesta tan válida o más como la del “Votarem”

Este documental de creación que TEA FM pone en tus oídos nace de nuestra propia identidad aragonesa. Aragón, un territorio despoblado (junto con Laponia, de los que menos habitantes por kilometro cuadrado tiene en toda Europa), con una lengua propia que tan solo hablan 12000 personas y que está catalogada como la lengua más minorizada de las que existen en Europa y una población de poco más de un millón de personas envejecida y dispersa en un territorio del tamaño de Suiza.

Lo que ponemos en vuestros oídos no es un programa reivindicativo. Tampoco pretende ser informativo. Solo queremos que escuchéis aquellos sonidos que existen y no se oyen de las protestas que se han producido y producen en Aragón desde hace muchos años y que quedan sordos ante el ruido mediático de quien solo quiere que la opinión pública mire en una dirección.

Porque a pesar de lo que parezca… NO TODO PASA EN CATALUÑA

Show 653: Éponges d’une nuit d’été (Radio Panik)

Some morning voices who told with texture in situ and a live performance with found material.

A sonar experience in three stages: gleaning dreams (recorded), gleaning sounds, collective trance.

This performance art workshop, organized by Le Bruitagène, took place at the second Utopie Sonore manifestation, a sound and radio residence near Angers in France at the end of August 2017.

A dozen people participated in addition to the fourty people who recorded their morning voices surrounding the theme of their dreams. The idea: to create a soundtrack based on these recordings, and added interesting sounds made by instrument-objects collected in situ, to deliver a live performance by broadcasting the editing of voices and playing with instrument-objects.

Producer : Doux Comme Un Lézard

Des voix du matin qui racontent, de la texture in situ et une perf live avec la matière récoltée. Expérience sonore en trois étapes: glanage de rêves (enregistrements), glanage de sons, transe collective.

Cet atelier-performance a eu lieu lors de la 2e édition d’Utopie Sonore, résidence radiophonique et sonore près d’Angers fin août 2017, organisée par Le Bruitagène.

Une dizaine de personnes y ont participé, en plus de la quarantaine de personnes qui ont enregistré leur voix du matin autour de leurs rêves. L’idée: réaliser une trame sonore à partir de ces enregistrements, y ajouter des sons d’objets-instruments récoltés sur place, livrer une performance en direct en diffusant les montages des voix et en jouant des objets-instruments.

Show 652: IGITUR FLOTSAM (Radio Worm/Klangendum)



IGITUR FLOTSAM - a stream of deserted anthems, disembodied voices, morse signals, crank calls, 
corroded tapes, radio statics, counting games and wanderings through empty buildings.
This radioplay is based on the unfinished gothic tale IGITUR - a collection of texts abandoned by its 
writer Stéphane Mallarmé in 1869.

A man wakes up in the middle of the night. Is there something there? or has something disappeared? 
Outside are opaque constellations of stars, the radio plays random sounds from beyond and the phone 
is dead.  It seems as if something has been accompanying him already all the time, stealing his identity 
by being a double.  Trying to escape this double he leaves his room and outside on the stairs he 
happens upon more reflections, shadows and doubles.
He tries to conjure these multiples by counting steps and doors on the way. 
Finally downstairs everything vanishes in the dark when all the sounds of the world enter the 
large open space.

music: Reinier van Houdt 
text: Stéphane Mallarmé/Reinier van Houdt 
voice: David Tibet

Show 651: Austrian Angst by Wiener Radia Kollektiv (Orange 94.0)

This week’s show is the Wiener Radia Kollektives journey into “Austrian Angst”. Listen to a group’s access to our spaces of Angst. And how a collective deals collectively with the collection of individual angst.

A show by the wiener radia kollektiv, Orange 94.0, in the 2017.

Tobias Dankl, Maria Herold,  Barbara Huber, Milada, Niklas, Barbara Kaiser, Lale Rodgarkia-Dara, Karl Schönswetter and Maria Sulzer.

The German language differentiates between fear (Furcht) and Angst (Angst)

Furcht is clearly directed, rooted in our consciences.

We know what we are afraid of, can name it, sometimes, we don’t dare to express it but it is not labeled with a shattering uncertainty.

The Austrian Angst is like the misty evening. Fog between the lines of conscience reception and anticipation. Blurring boundaries. We embody the present, we cannot flee escape from the present. The present is present. We cannot estimate the risks and vulnerability of the threat. We fight, freeze, focus, or flee based on the essence of our temper but between the foggy lines of this present a thought turns into a tree with little shiny fruits of terror.

The Austrian Angst is quiet, a solidification of our breath.  The moment turns into eternity; every scream is inverted into your body that suddenly is the object of angst itself. The outside threat is no longer separated from the inside we merge with this threat from the outside. We cannot do anything to avoid the immediate danger. We react and act in a quiet time-less, space-less sphere.

The picture is never complemented if you only look at one generation, so we borrow other generations, look at our children or argue with  our mothers and fathers. Rage is the soft variant of angst. It might seem aggressive and uncontrollable but in most cases is precludes the arousal of the real feeling. This is Austrian Angst and it means, it treats your body without any shifting, development.

The creation of experience, in fact, involves a degree of forgetting. Austrian Angst offers a huge traditional cake of sweet joyfulness. Every spoonful of this creamy tasteful cake prevents us from this process of forgetting. We detain our memory, sentence it for life. Free floating fear. Uncertainty itself becomes the object of our Angst. We can no longer set any references in time, space, lose the others, our body, our essence. And this angst is merging with desire. For some this means a joyful experience of life.

Die Tendenz in der unbelebten Welt zu immer größerer Unordnung, ist die Entropie
Eine meiner persönlichen  Ängste besteht darin,  den Kampf gegen die Entropie zu verlieren. In der belebten Welt sehe ich Angst, irgendwann den Kampf gegen das Kompostieren zu verlieren.

Transference and countertransference – the Austrian Angst is shiny and frosted at the same time. It is equipped with an insect’s antenna beyond our imagination. A gentle exploration of our manifold selfs, interspecies meetings a wishful exchange of perception, in fact an encounter of death.

Flow is the Antagonist of Austrian Angst. Flow shuts out this indescribable boredom of the Austrian existence. We cherish this fadesse, the tedium sticks our soul together. Our senses are integrated in the eternal conjunctive. The terror of our soul is the vital life others might have. We stare in envy. No single sign of shame, we are proud of this fadesse. Resonance with it.

You were listening to Austrian Angst. A show by the wiener radia kollektiv, Vienna 2017.

Show 649: The Trouble with Trees by Emily Townshend (CFRC)

Much like the main character Gwen, I too like to procrastinate. This entire piece was created in 24 hours.

The Trouble With Trees is a radio drama written and produced by storyranger for CFRC. The voice of Gwen was Emily Townshend. The voice of Eli was Michael McLaren. The music featured in this work was created by Disparition, storyranger, Our Last Night, Lindsey Stirling, Jackson Parodi, and HARBOR. Any resemblance to real events or persons, living or dead, is entirely coincidental.

Show 648: ‘She’ by Lola Ajima (Radio Campus Paris)

Image by Yukao Nagemi.

1. intro
2. Drama Queen
3. Slander/Backstabbing
4. Victim(self)blaming

« In a time where so much is thought, said and done on behalf of women’s rights you would think that we, as women would support each other even more. But this is not always the case. I was wondering, what it is, that we women do, that doesn’t help our case ?
Inspired by a Buddhist doctrine, which says that our karma is created by what we do, what we say and what we think, I was looking for stories, and I found them : the tale of one woman trying to control another woman’s feminine appearance for the sake of profit, the woman who is backstabbing another woman in her machinery of fear and jealousy, and the woman who’s blaming herself for being raped. It wasn’t easy to find them, no one wants to tell things like this. This is why I found it even more important to share them, not to point fingers, but to shed light and plead for forgiveness and reconciliation among women.
Desmond Tutu said: “Forgiving and being reconciled to our enemies or our loved ones are not about pretending that things are other than they are. It is not about patting one another on the back and turning a blind eye to the wrong. True reconciliation exposes the awfulness, the abuse, the hurt, the truth. It could even sometimes make things worse. It is a risky undertaking but in the end it is worthwhile, because in the end only an honest confrontation with reality can bring real healing. Superficial reconciliation can bring only superficial healing.”
I invite you now, dear listener, to be part of this reconciliation, a re-creation of this karma. While you listen, please forgive these women, and reflect upon how we can think, talk and act differently than them »

Thanks to Daphne Tsiouni, Coralie Maurin and Julia Stern for lending me their voices. Thanks to Sonia Rose Gouia for letting me use samples of her cello playing.

Show 647: Gas production by Vidar Martens for Radio Nova

Based on field recordings from gas production, the piece creates a comfortable yet eerie soundscape.


The monotonous sound of gas production has been described as hearing the rumbling, eternal sounds of the earths core. It is the sound of ancient matter transformed to energy, energy we easily and affordably use to maintain our comfortable western life styles. The soundscape allures the idea that everything is fine and well. At the same time, we know that maintaining the status quo is leading to fast and radical changes, with more devastating effects than we want to imagine.
