Show 952: IRC Theatre V3.14 by Pat456 (TT Node)

Irc is what brought P-node together , we were all small entities streaming from somewhere at the break of the century , the chat linked us , we had different servers, different bots , some useful some that made a marasma flood that made communication impossible.

The first version of the Irc theater was an idea developed during our residency in Berlin in 2014 where the idea was to read all comments on our website , via vocal synthesisers on on side on the FM waves of Deutchland Radio Kultur , and a human voice on the AM frequencies used by the same radio.

It was an exit stereo experiment , possible to hear the whole thing with two radios.

As of today P-node still keeps a deep link to IRC , if you log on to the site you will be an anonymous pat15 or pat456. A few members have been developing new irc tools , we now have a control over different stream urls , and a great irc commanded synth that we use during our IRC theater sessions that go on mondays wednesdays and thursdays at 1900 cet on

This Radia session will be a small compilation of the first weeks of work from the server recordings.

Feel free to come play with us in the future.

Show 951: The Cave – Dialogue (Usmaradio)

Usmaradio presents

A reflection on the community approach of music research, waiving together different methodologies in the making of sound, from improvisation to structured compositions, passing through live set and A\V performance and any kind of other related attitudes.

Radio and technology have always been related each others, as long as the broad of a growing non-real and immaterial space as this media represents its arial forms.

Physical, social, human, collaborative – left free in the sonic flux’s ether, layered of real time samplings, transformations, overdubbing and stratifications.

‘Dialogue’ meant through a vast array of non-similar sound’s applications reaching and sharing a network, a platform for conceiving and creating a peaceful listening zone, dreams and oscillations.

Jacopo Buda: no-input mixer, trumpet, organ, radio, live electronics;

Demetrio Cecchitelli: found sounds, acoustic guitar, radio, live electronics;

And a special intervention by Simone Doria.

THE CAVE is an artistic project active in the field of electronic and electroacoustic research music since 2021 and based in Rimini, Italy. The journey started during the pandemic time where selected artists’s pieces, coming from the Italian underground music scene, have been streaming live on Usmaradio which also collected them in its archive reachable at the link below. Then, after covid peaked, the project came back on site through different venues and across almost 30 performances in less than two years offering different layers of listening experience to the audience.

Podcast area within all the performances (2021 – 2023)

Usmaradio – Centro di Ricerca Interdipartimentale per la Radiofonia (CRIR) / Interdepartmental Research Centre for Radio Studies, is a workplace of The School of Radio to develop an innovative radio pedagogy. Workshops, work sessions, meetings, presentations of live performance as sections of the project. Produced by UNIRSM | Università degli Studi della Repubblica di San Marino. / /


Show 949: Midnight Echoes by proxy_404 (radioart106)

Midnight Echoes: A Sonic Journey Through Overthinking

Midnight Echoes explores the theme of overthinking in silence, delving into the sounds that haunt restless nights. It combines samples, field recordings and experimental techniques on DJ decks. The piece consists of four parts, each representing different aspects of overthinking. The first section sets the foundation of the piece, representing the hypnagogic state as fragmented memories and snippets of conversations. The insomnia presents itself in the second section that delves into an inner monologue, where racing thoughts and self-doubt intertwine. The soundscapes transition between calm moments of introspection and frenetic bursts of chaotic energy, reflecting the ebb and flow of overthinking. Sonic elements overlap and collide and heighten the sense of restlessness until the final section introduces a shift towards tranquility. The journey transitions from dissonance to harmony and ends in acceptance and finding peace within the chaos of overthinking. 

The overall aim is to offer a cathartic and introspective experience, inviting listeners to confront their own inner dialogues and find solace within the power of sound.
