Show 066: transitliteratur

recorded in the car on the truck-route from vienna to bratislava

transitliteratur is a project where small pieces of literature are placed on transit-trucks. the idea is to use trucks as mobile-media-platform. this radia programme is the auditive attempt of this idea.
during the recording of radia#66 transitliteratur our recording-team followed transit trucks on the way from vienna to bratislava. we were in contact with around 15 people via our cell-phone. by the time the car passed a truck, one of them supplied us with a small reading. the texts had been read in 8 languages (russian, serbian, italian, spanish, english, german, czech, hungarian). the whole project is in realtime and has not been edited.
enjoy the sound of the truck-route between the closest capitals in europe. not the vatikan and rome, but vienna and bratislava.

a real-time radia work by ernst reitermaier, barbara kaiser, and lale rodgarkia-dara.

Show 064: Histoire d’eau by Christophe Modica

Christophe Modica is a photographer, filmmaker and sound artist.
He made a piece ignoring the borders between countries, treating as equals language and sound, music and voice, as a water sound doesn’t need a translation. There is no secret “Histoire d’eau” is a work on water. Water feeds, washes, it can lack or overflow. Drought kills, so does a tidal wave. With the current, from ebb to flow, through health, hydration, struggle and waste, life is in a floating balance.

Show 062: Dubphasing

We attempted to create a composition based on delayed, transformed and modulated sounds, sounds that range from stationary to repetitionary stages, from low to high frequencies range.

Our experience can be seen as an attempt to deceive our states of vigilance,
an attempt to offense and breach our routines, in order to question ourselves about what is really surrounding us.

This piece was created by Tiago Andrade and Filipe Campos, from Radio Zero.

Show 061: silence radia

This week for Radia, Radio Campus will go and plunder the database. is a listening space dedicated to contemporary creative radio. offers audio pieces from composed work to “rough” material such as an interesting piece of archive or field-recording.

As a web-based project, Silenceradio could be non-geographical. But it’s not, or not completely. You can find a lot of homegrown sounds, recorded here in Brussels in their collection. We tried here to put some of those together and send you the result, from Brussels, with love

She took on the courageous task of creating one full radia lenght piece and it turned out greater than the great Canadian Mountains. The piece goes up and down with ever changing landscape like the jagged mountains do too. For any of you who have never been to Montreal, well this show also look at lot like there.
The samples in Renees mix come from a billion local and not so local artists… Charles Stankievitch, Frieda Abtan, Lateef, Serviceworks, Josh Ivy, some children and way more.
