About the exhibition:

This edition of radioCona:0.2425 aims at reflecting and shifting precisely this ‘unperceived’ remainder, making a leap to move from the unit of time to the notion of space, toward perceiving space, toward perceiving, capturing, and composing sounds and soundscapes, and ultimately toward creating autonomous narratives.

The radioCona:0.2425 soundart exhibition was curated by Francisco Lopez, Elena Biserna, Brane Zorman, Irena Pivka, and Jasmina Založnik. Find details about my curatorial selections here.

I curated a selection of works by five artists for the radioCona 0.2425 FM soundart exhibition broadcast and streaming February 28 – March 3, 2016 after nautical twilight 6:16 PM on 88.8MHz FM and live streaming on www.radiocona.si Ljubljana.

This edition of the annual exhibition is dedicated to the Earth’s orbit around the Sun, focusing on the dimension of nighttime radio transmission and the idea of heightened perception that can happen only by withdrawing from daytime rhythms.

In addition, my own “SoundTent At Camp Sherwin” was selected by one of the other curators.

May 15: HOME RADIATION at Defibrillator

HOME RADIATION

Defibrillator is proud to present

ANNA FRIZ, JEFF KOLAR, ERIC LEONARDSON

in

HOME RADIATION

Performing with radiophonic instruments, unique homemade electronics, micro-watt transmitters, and re-purposed objects, ANNA FRIZ, JEFF KOLAR and ERIC LEONARDSON create intimate atmospheres traversing acoustic and electro-magnetic space. Together their work can be characterized as a mindful collaboration with vibrational surfaces and unstable circuits; and with subtle treatments of potentially noisy, often lo-fi materials from which highly detailed landscapes emerge. Though all three artists have worked with one another in various constellations in Chicago and internationally, this concert is their premiere outing as a trio.

Sound and Listening: Beyond the Wall of Broadcast Sound

On April 15 my article for Volume 22, Issue 1 of the Journal of Radio and Audio Media was published. “Sound and Listening: Beyond the Wall of Broadcast Sound” describes how World Listening Day engages and educates individuals and groups in soundscape awareness, and the socio-aesthetic potential of radio and audio media for communicating and engaging local and global awareness.

The Journal of Radio and Audio Media is published by Routledge/Taylor and Francis Group.

Broadcast & Live Web Stream Radio Event, Sept 20-22

A BROADCAST & LIVE WEB STREAM RADIO EVENT, 20-22 SEPTEMBER
INTERMISSION: AN AUDIO PORTRAIT OF PLACE –  MAPPING THE SPACE BETWEEN A AND B
A collaboration between Jennie Savage and Echoes
ECOS#2-banner-mail-1

 

To make a map is to create a visual register of place.

To actively use a map is to make connections and perceptually join people, places and ideas together. ‘Mapping’ is an attempt to represent multiplicity. To give form to concepts, ideas, journey’s, even time. An audio map is the playing out of sounds, ideas, field recordings, footage and imaginings from geography this creates a new topography- a new map. A map that connects sounds to place and then forges connections between places. This process is empowering. It connects people and ideas; situations that seemed singular become multiple.

The broadcast has been organised into sections:

‘Territories’ Individual, community, locality, corporate, global, bought into conversation.
‘Convergence’ The intermeshing of birdsong, a human voice, a car, a factory, a glitch, a shopping mall, an airport a train station, their convergence as audio portrait of place and human experience.
‘Psycho geography’, Time emerges through place. ‘Reflexivity’ Thinking about the idea of the field recording, the meaning of a walk or journey. ‘Dis orienteering’ The field recording as starting point for abstraction or manipulation.

Broadcast by stress.fm between 20 and 22 of September
