Show 200: yr byt by IT

Johannes Krause and Claus Störmer are working together as IT, a project in the context of live electronic and electroacoustic music. Choosing radio corax as a platform to present their live improvised work, IT is about experimenting with sounds and the development of methods of playing, depending on the material. IT use live recordings to process them as well as mix them up with synthetic sounds, with the intention of creating a coherent sonic field, fusing abstract and representational aspects of these sounds. The state varies in time through which the association on a specific sound is not fixed. The attempt is to figure out an open acoustic situation without a definite link to music…

For our radio-work we made field-recordings which had an artificial sound. We brought them together with synthetic material, which in the contrary, sound natural. These very distinguished aspects in our source material were set as close as and as far as possible in correlation. Therefore movement, space, mimesis, presence, auditory threshold, and rhythm where important parameters.

Show 199: Domestic Radiation by Anna Friz

A composition made from the imagined and actual intercepted fields of electro-magnetic and acoustic signals in and around my apartment in Toronto, Canada. This piece seeks to express some of the wireless action surging daily on site. I am particularly interested in the relative flatness and depth perceivable in both acoustic and Hertzian space, and in the diminishing horizon in the city as a result of urban design and an exponential increase in wireless infrastructure (or electro-magnetic clutter). Additional filters include mason jars, theremin, ring modulator, staged interference, and delay. This show is best enjoyed on headphones, for those listening online.

Show 198: OUT OF SPACE-war of the worlds

Live-Radio-Drama on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of Orson Welles’ interpretation of H.G. Wells’ novel War of the Worlds on Oct 30th 1938.

Lange Beschreibung A scenic reading, electroacoustic performance, incl. live-streaming and live terrestrial broadcasting.

„When it comes to radio and audio we are much closer to the
subliminal text of our society.
Literature and audio open up a new reception onto the
vestiges of the accelerated world.“
Lale Rodgarkia-Dara

On Oct 30th 2008 Christine Ehardt (academic part) and Lale Rodgarkia-Dara (artistic part) organised a new production of war of the worlds based on the novell by H.G.Wells at the Planetarium in Vienna.

Within four weeks more then 20 artists (electroacoustic musicians, actors and visualists) joined the production, including live-streams from Cologne and three radiostations took over the live-stream and included the live-drama in their programme.

Radio walks towards its original immediacy.

Show 197: quand le LA n’est pas là by DJP

It’s been made by DJP, an inventor of several new electro-acoustical instruments and devices.
The piece is a kind of pseudo scientific conference about Fmajor, a
surrealistic, pata-conference. The talking part is in french, but anyone can get his point very quickly.
How occidental music could have been much different if it was not for this Fmajor obsession.
Une bonne écoute
