Show 103: STRANGE AID by Michael Fischer

STRANGE AID is created with a rudimentary setup of 2 – 5 soundgenerators (which are: headphones, microphones and turntables), recorded in a broadcasting-studio this work can also be seen as a contribution to the basic research on electroacoustic music production.
The main aim of STRANGE AID is to convey electroacoustic contents via a series of radio-broadcasts where the method of producing this contents is explained live on air to the listeners. The radio shows where this happens (which Michael Fischer is doing since 1999) main contents are: improvised music, new music, ethnic music and electroacoustic music production.
The incalculability of the result of the sound production needs a high measure of the ability taking risk. Feedbacks are to a certain amount always incalculable. This challange offers on the other hand the possibility to find new musical and technical associations.
This experimentation series is not only a new defintion of a yet predisposed field (the mixing desk as connection between moderator and audience), it is also a contribution to the findings of feedback mechanisms in the electroacoustic compositional/improvisational content production, and an attempt to discuss the politico-social connotations of this method:
– Which effects do have systematic or arbitrary changings of the system parameters on the possibilities of reaction of the current systems interrelations?
– Which criterias of stability do have excalated systems?
(Michael Fischer)

Show 102: Floors We Have Known by Lucinda Guy and Alexander Paterson

Produced by Lucinda Guy and Alexander Paterson.
“Originally we thought about doing a dance/movement piece for radio, but as we worked we became more interested in the variety of sounds the floors here make. Some of the studios we recorded in have been here for decades, as part of Dartington College of Arts which was formed in 1961. The college is now to be closed down, or move 80 miles to merge with a larger institution. It’s the smallest academic institution in England and is no longer considered viable. This piece is a homage to the floors of Dartington with their unique creaks and squeaks, and to a college which could not be replicated anywhere else.”

Show 101: R(H)umeur collective, part 1

R(H)umeur collective is a radio piece initiated by Maki for Radia. The original idea of this programme is a “versus” to Sarah Washington’s Time Labs project: she built a radio show with numerous one-minute audio pieces she received after launching an open call via the Internet.

R(H)umeur collective started with a similar call for participations through the Radia network and more widely. The main difference with Time Labs is that Maki included each contribution in its entirety without any other transformation than mixing them all together. It resulted in 2 radio pieces.

This programme is the first part of R(H)umeur collective. The second one will be broadcast in the Radia network and replayed live from the sound-art festival Laps in Main d’oeuvres, Paris, in May 2007.
