Special: 3 JOURNEYS THROUGH RADIA, JOURNEY 3 by Etienne Noiseau

Kunstradio asked Etienne Noiseau from the crew of Radio Grenouille in Marseille for a selection of recent pieces from Radia. He replied with a three-show series that would include the best pieces (to his opinion) of all the Radia stations during the 2006-2007 period. With Floriane Pochon who is the presenter of the weekly Radia show on Radio Grenouille, they selected fourteen pieces, i.e. one piece per Radia station during the period.

Then Etienne selected one relevant excerpt per piece. He based his choice only on sound affinities and combined all the excerpts one another into three pieces so as to form “3 journeys through Radia”.


Third and last path in the universe of Radia, mapping so many roads, opening all sources,,
Possibly, as if we could rely on the fixed-point theorem to solve a non-linear, partial, differential equation.

Third and last time,
Possibly, as if, by the sound of it, form could only be the content led to the surface,,
Possibly, as we were floundering down the mud of melted mirages,,

Third exile,
Possibly, as if electronic fears could mine the wasteland of bucolic daydreams.

Third excavation,
Possibly, as if speeches that do not bleed could prevent sense from circulating.
Possibly, as if we could brush past these sounds that are impossible to fossilize.

Third migration, within minutes, for the last seasonal influx,
Possibly, as if we could attempt to catch a fleeing hope and sew up the sky in a sigh, flapping of an eyelash.
