PAMELA, chapitre 1
Pamela, c’est un roman Harlequin métaphysique. Pamela, c’est une jeune femme blonde accoudée à la balustrade en bois de teck blanc qui surplombe la baie de Palm Beach. Pamela, c’est une héroïne de feuilleton à l’eau de rose embarquée malgré elle dans un mythe de la Fin des Temps dont elle devient le prophète. Pamela, c’est le nom du cyclone économique qui menace d’engloutir la société capitaliste qui l’a engendré. Pamela*, c’est le nom d’un dreamware* buggué dont le virus s’étend à la réalité.

Show 320: An evening with Froggies by Etienne Noiseau

Because it had to be done, the Radia piece #320 from Radio Grenouille is about… frogs.

So you’re going to hear the Mediterranean Tree Frog alias Hyla meridionalis and also some froggies looking for amphibians such as newts, and other bipeds more distant and busy with their own sounding party. Disclaimer, no frogs were eaten during the making of this piece as far as we can tell.

The whole material of this piece was recorded between 9 and 11 PM on the 30th of April 2011, during a naturalist outing led by Groupe Ornithologique du Roussillon and Chevaux & Chemins on the plateau of Roupidère.

Show 319: Gowanus Over and Out, by Maria Papadomanolaki

Gowanus Over and Out follows the aural traces of the narrowcast audio exhibit Sib Radio Gowanus curated last year for the exhibition “Postcards from Gowanus” (Cabinet Magazine Gallery, March 17-20 2010, Gowanus, Brooklyn, New York). The conceptual backbone of the project was to create a sonic wallpaper that would reflect the aural undertones, both real and imagined, of the area surrounding the gallery. It also served as an organic sonotopia that inhabited the audiovisual exhibits in a process of associative interaction. Responding to a call for works, a total of 44 U.S. and international artists from diverse creative backgrounds contributed works ranging from drones and field recordings to spoken word pieces and experimental sonic artworks. Gowanus Over and Out attempts to offer a glimpse into some of the different facets of the exhibit while at the same time being its own self-expanding universe of sounds.

Maria Papadomanolaki is a Greek artist working primarily with sound in the context of phonography, audience-centered performance pieces, and radio art. Her background in language studies and interest in environmental sound inform her artistic practice. Papadomanolaki often combines these two elements in her work to amplify the intrinsic physical and psychological qualities of an experienced time and space. In 2006, she marked her transition from French language and literature to the sonic arts with Stoma—an interactive voice piece based on Samuel Beckett’s Not I exhibited in the UK and Greece. As a researcher and writer, she has presented at international conferences. Her paper, “Radio as the voice of community, locality, interactivity and experimentation,” presented at The Cyprus University of Technology and the ECREA Radio Research Section 2009 conference, will be published in the forthcoming volume Radio Content in the Digital Age: The Evolution of a Sound Medium (2011, Intellect Books). Papadomanolaki currently resides in New York where she works as a freelance artist.
