Show 478: Theremidi Orchestra (Radio Student)

Theremidi is a made-up-word, a hybrid of thermin and midi controller.  Theremidi Orchestra (TO) is a verb, an ongoing workshop of noise and drone production. The hands-on electro noise ensemble exists in the present continuous, but refers also to the history of electronic music. TO has a DIY (do-it-yourself) and DIWO (do-it-with-others) approach in making music / sound experiments, making our own instruments (theremidi, micronoise, touch-tone…), based on open-source technologies. Currently, the Theremidi Orchestra consists of 9 active members, coming from different study or professional backgrounds. Every Monday TO meets at Ljudmila = Ljubljana Digital Media Lab to practice and develop soundscapes and build DIY sound devices. Theremidi Orchestra is a process of mutual understanding and solving problems in a horizontal manner. First it led us to abort the need for a central figure of sound technician or conductor. The process of production involves experimentation with sound outputs, mutually composed music scores, shared responsibilities for individual parts of the process, etc.

The featured track has been recorded by Radio Student. The first 6:40 minutes is a fragment of a live performance at TRESK #5 Festival with sound artist and dancer Irena Tomažin at Kino Šiška Cultural Centre. The rest of the track has been recorded live at Radio Student for DJ Seansa morning radio show.

Theremidi Orchestra active members are: Simon Bergoč, Tina Dolinšek, Luka Frelih, Ida Hiršenfelder, Dare Pejić, Tilen Sepič, Saša Spačal, Robertina Šebjanič, Dušan Zidar, Isac Petruzzi, Ian Soroka

Show 476: Randonée sonore vers la France

El paisaje sonoro es la parte olvidada del entorno.
La imagen nubla y desvirtua en muchas ocasiones la verdadera esencia de lo que nos rodea.
El sonido nos permite descubrir los pequeños detalles.
En este trabajo, realizado a través de Francia durante los años 2012 y 2013, Chuse Fernandez nos muestra un paseo sonoro por diversos lugares de Francia, permitiendo al oyente descubrir espacios acústicos que están ahí, aunque en muchas ocasiones no los veamos.
L’ambiance sonore est la partie oubliée de l’environnement.
L’image s’estompe et souvent nuit à l’essence même de ce qui nous entoure.
Le son nous permet de découvrir les petits détails.
Dans ce travail, mené par la France dans les années 2012 et 2013, Chuse Fernandez nous montre un son promenade à travers diverses parties de la France, ce qui permet à l’auditeur de découvrir des espaces acoustiques qui sont là, mais souvent nous ne voyons pas.
The soundscape is the forgotten part of the environment.
The image blurs and often detracts from the true essence of what surrounds us.
The sound allows us to discover the small details.
