Show1003 : The Jingle Book by Alan Dunn (TT Node)

During lockdown, artist Alan Dunn established ‘orchestras’ across seven dementia care homes, using everyday objects as instruments and tongue twisters as lyrics. To everyone’s surprise, these tongue twisters became a precious activity, with participants (and the artist’s 6-year-old grandson) creating new ones, reciting them in different styles and even mastering some of the world’s hardest ones! This new mix brings together versions from one of the care villages in Chester that was part of the longer Where the Arts Belong research project between Bluecoat and Belong. The recent publication The Jingle Book documents these tongue twister adventures that brought laughter and new verbal fluency to many during dark times: https://alandunn67.co.uk/jinglebook.html

Show 1002: Sasayaki o kiitekudasai (Usmaradio)



Vittoria Assembri is an experimental sound artist and independent researcher in sonic arts and public architecture. Her sound research is about field recording, sound objects, experimental music that reflect on the theme of marginal and liminal territory, in close relationship with urban plans and its crossing (human and non-human).

Her practice develops from site-specific deep listening, focusing on urban dynamics, sociocultural processes and public sphere, with which to rewrite an affective and political landscape of resistance.

Vittoria is currently in Japan since the beginning of May, where she is doing a live performance tour and working on a few artistic residencies’ projects (Kyoto Kinugasa Art Residence for Community in Kyoto, Aomori Contemporary Art Center, Lake Haruna Artist Residence). 

This track is a cut-up of her analog and digital recordings around Japan: Haruna and Fuji-san volcanoes, Kinugasa district in Kyoto, tatami’s and bonsai’s artisans in Okayama, izakayas in Shinjuku-Tokyo, Taka-san cellist, nightingale flooring of the Ryōn-ji Temple, shishi odoshi, radio fm-am interferences, jingles and alerts from megaphone loudspeaker, Aomori forest’s fauna, memorial songs from inhabitants and fishermen of the Haruna cadera, etc.

Show 1000: 1000 Likes by Sarah Washington (Mobile Radio)

1000 Likes

This is a special collaborative show to mark Radia’s 1000th week of broadcasting. It features contributions from 14 member stations and affiliates of the network, which between them collected the voices of 122 participants.
The remit was simple: Ask several people to speak a list of 10 things they like, and compile their voices into a short composition. The result is a heartwarming and amusing gathering of over 1000 genuine likes, which stand in proud relief to the hollowed out kind we have have become accustomed to on social media. Participants were surprised to be asked what turns out to be a very good question.

Show 0999: RadioActive ~ on Water series (radioart106)

RadioActive – on Water is a six episode podcast series, exploring the interactions between transmission, sound, activism and water. Each episode is created by a different artist/group of artists who engage with water politics and the politics of listening through the medium of radio. This show contains 2 excerpts from each episode, selected by the series’ curators.

Creators: Blanc Sceol (Stephen Shiell and Hannah White), Lisa Blackmore and Leonel Vásquez, RE-PEAT collective, Margarida Mendes, Carlos Monleon and Nathaniel Mann, Meira Asher.

The episodes:

‘An Ear to River ~ counterflows’ by Blanc Sceol (Stephen Shiell & Hannah White) invites the audience to listen with the Channelsea river, a recovering waterway in East London and home to the city’s largest combined sewage outfall.

‘River song, singing rivers’ by Lisa Blackmore and Leonel Vásquez, navigates the Bogotá River in Colombia through a more-than-human song created in collaboration with the living forces that shape the watershed’s ecosystems.

‘Watered’ by RE-PEAT collective approaches water justice through imagining the perspective of water nself, by drawing stories and definitions of bodies of water, and n’s entanglement in relation with other bodies, bogs, bugs, sundew, moss and more.

‘Sonic Traces’ by Margarida Mendes, is a journey from the deep ocean to the Mississippi river, to expose how traces of pollution, sonic and chemical, travel through watery space impacting communities across ecosystems.

‘River Breathing’ by Carlos Monleon and Nathaniel Mann, examines the impact of irrigation systems on human and more-than-human communities through the Ebro river in Spain and its endangered clam population.

‘Liquidation’ by Meira Asher interrogates the politically engineered water crisis in the Occupied Palestinian Jordan Valley where Israel deliberately and strategically deprives Palestinian shepherd communities of access to water.

SHOW 998 Compositing For Radio A Workshop From ( Diffusion FM)


This is a montage created from the Radio as a Space and a Material community workshop with DiffusionFM held at 107 Redfern. For this event we invited the community to contemplate alternative radio space. We also invited the wonderful Hethre Contant to participate which inevitably included an appearance of The Weekly Dream Report. Also big thanks to Ryan Morris for sharing his other consciousness with us.

Here are the results of workshop participants enjoying performative experiments. During these “Jams” the usual suspects were utilised – extremely low-powered terrestrial radio wave technologies, other electromagnetic and time-based sensing tools, telephones, walkie-talkies, computers, deep sea cables, whatever paraphernalia came to hand and August Black’s telematic browser app Mezcal.

Most of the material was recorded using a very old H1 ZOOM with only one functioning microphone and mobile phones. The results are delightfully LoFi and in glorious mono!

Show 997: Constant frequency: 89,3 mhz (Radio Študent)

Show 0997: Constant frequency: 89,3 mhz (Radio Študent)

Lora, Oli, and Sava, sound engineers from Radio Študent, embarked on a drive through the high hill lands and winding roads of western Slovenia on May 1st, after working at a concert at Stržnkarjevi, a place that no phone signal reaches. They tuned in to the frequency of 89.3 MHz, where Radio Študent is locally broadcasted in Ljubljana. The recording of the car drive captures the shifting soundscape as they journey from Vojsko to Idrija through the diverse terrain, each turn of the road bringing a new auditory experience.

Show 996: Three Rules of Discipline and Eight Points for Attention by Hali Palombo for Wave Farm

“Interval Signals” are short pieces of musical phrasing, a sound effect or recorded speech that shortwave radio stations use to “introduce themselves” when broadcasting. The signals announce the start of a broadcast and create an identifiable touchstone for listeners old as well as those hearing the station for the very first time. Three Rules of Discipline and Eight Points for Attention (named for the title of China radio station’s Voice of the Strait’s highly recognizable interval signal) is a work that restructures interval signals from eight different countries into miniature compositions played on instruments and in styles that are significant departures from their original form.

Hali Palombo is a composer, visual artist, and filmmaker from Chicago, Illinois. Born in Northfield, Minnesota, she has had a natural curiosity about the Midwestern United States since a young age. Her work often weaves the absurd and mundane beauty of Illinois into her records, short films, drawings, and paintings. Palombo is an avid practitioner of “plunderphonics”: sampling existing musical/aural works and intertwining them into something brand new, whether its shortwave radio and CB radio samples, wax cylinder audio, or field recordings taken from Midwestern points of interest. She also draws great inspiration from endless adventures around the country—be they on Google maps or in her car—often photographing, filming, or drawing her findings.

Show 995: Standard sono magique by Désorceler la Finance (Radio Panik)

image by Ed Hall

Unbewitch Finance (2017) is a Brussels self-proclaimed lab composed of researchers, activists, artists, designers and various allies engaged to reclaim power over parts of our life in society that are owned by the economic and the financial system. Through rituals, speculative writings, radio documentaries, hybrid performances and exhibitions , the lab develops a pragmatical magic meant to unbewitch ourselves from the curse of TINA* and to think desirable futures.

*There Is No Alternative
‘Standard sono magique’ is a sound ritual recorded at Recyclart (BXL) during the release party for the Documentary podcast ‘Glossary of Finance and sorcery’ (Glossaire de la finance et de la sorcellerie) a five chapter radio creation available on radiola.be
image credit : Ed Hall

Désorceler la Finance est un laboratoire sauvage composé d’artistes, d’activistes, de chercheuse.eur.s déterminé.e.s à nous désenvoûter de la finance, à nous libérer de la paralysie qui nous saisit lorsqu’il faut penser son rôle dans la société, sur le logement, la santé, la production agricole ou l’écologie.

Entre rituels de désenvoûtement de la finance, cartomancie pour ré-ouvrir les horizons, exposition de curiosités économiques, marches et infiltrations, émissions radio et autres conférences pirates, le laboratoire avance au rythme de créations visuelles et sonores, de workshops, de performances et d’écritures expérimentales.

Show 994: underneath the rubble my hand became a will (radioworm)

A new radiopiece made by Palestinian soundartist Dirar Kalash in the Worm studio, february/march 2024
“underneath the rubble my hand became a will”
 a description:

This piece is made up entirely from sounds collected from Palestine, and is composed from different field recordings : protests, nature, markets, city streets, and from different locations across Palestine.
Those sounds were then heavily processed and composed, as an analogical approach to the political realities of Palestine, and the spatial and temporal transformation of both the land and the people –their movements, their lives, and their deaths.

Dirar Kalash (b. 1982) is a musician and sound artist whose work spans a wide range of musical and sonic practices within a variety of instrumental, compositional and improvisational contexts. Kalash also extends his practice into inter-disciplinary theoretical research. He has produced several solo and collaborative music albums and is active as an improvising musician.
