Show 725: Call & Answer by Connor Walsh for Radio Campus Bruxelles

Call & Answer

To fly between the North Atlantic and the South Atlantic, is normal for grey wings, be they of aluminium or feathers. The grey feathered wings swim, too, with easy; the aluminium ones try to be like home but never quite can. And to hear them, in sound or radio, we need points on land among the vast ocean; the Azores announces itself as ‘Santa Maria Radio’, which the North Atlantic is termed ‘Shanwick’ or ‘Gander’. 
And in pure communicative sound, we landlubbers can need to set foot on the 3 square km island of Skomer; and we need to wait until night falls, before the Manx Shearwaters… before they… 

Like passengers in a plane, some shearwaters too are locked away—inside the earth. 

More about the expedition here.

Radio Artist : Connor Walsh

Comment les oiseaux migratoire fait leur voyage, la mer d’Irlande et le Océan Atlantique près du Brésil ? D’ailleurs, comment les avion fait leur voyage transatlantique ? Les aile, bien sur, de aluminium ou de plume ; Mais comment piloter ? Si on veut l’entendu, on a besoin de points sur la terre ; les avion se compte sur les contrôle aérien au bord de mer, en Irland, au les Açores, au Canada. Et pour rencontre les puffins des Anglais, on a besoin de passer le nuit dans une de trois petite isles au Pays de Gal. 

Connor Walsh a être là en Juin 2018 avec une partie du bénévoles qui faire des recherche sur les puffin des Anglais ; et écouter aussi les avions transatlantique par les ondes courtes; il a prepare cette emission Radia avec le aide du Kika de Radio Campus Bruxelles.

Radio-là : a permanent workshop for radio expression and broadcasting
with psychiatric users, caregivers, journalists and technicians to interrogate psychiatry and to try to change the representations related to mental illness.

Radio-là : A weekly workshop at the Euphonia studio offers everyone to produce their own radio and sound experience. We make listening, sound recordings, expression around themes chosen together, readings, editing, and put productions on FM and on the web.

Like John Cage, we have thrown the dice and lined up here 28 minutes of captations, performances and sound experiments.

A few readings in French (sorry for the rest of the world) translations of texts by John Cage and Gaston Bachelard.

Thank you to all the participants of Radio-là. Good listening !

Show 723: The Dirty Dozen (Radio ARA)

Collage by Guy Anthony

The Dirty Dozen

This is the first Radia contribution out of Luxembourg. A dozen people got together to discover new ways of recording and radio making, thrilled by the infinite possibilities of radio art and wildly making use of any recording device they found.

Intentionally focusing on sounds, noises and voices that usually just form the background of recordings – or are not recorded at all. Distracting reverbs, deformed languages, distortions and alien sound worlds have been surrounding us and have now been captured for Radia. Plunge into these soundscapes and enjoy the variety of discoveries we have made.

Special thanks go to Mobile Radio for holding a two-day introduction workshop, of which this show is the result, organised by CNA (Centre national de l’audiovisuel) and Radio ARA, the free radio in Luxembourg.

Produced by Wendy Winn, Ben Dratwicki, Jamie Reinert, Claire Thill, Sandra Laborier, Lars Schmitz, Véronique Faber, Justin Jacquot, Guy Anthony, Monique Hoffmann, Luca Piparo and Isabel Scott with support from Sarah Washington and Knut Aufermann. Made with additional recordings by CNA audio archive and (Daniel Simon).
