    I’mlooking for sounds which defy logic. These auditory sculptures are born out ofexperimentation, they are not considered music and are not structured as such.I’m interested in the creation sounds which have never been heard by the human earbut which possess power to captivate and hypnotize while gnawing at the skull.They best way to experience them is by limiting all other senses. Inconstructing these experiments in developing new auditory experiences I utilizeboth digital and analog recordings which are passed though many many filters,stretched, pitch shifted, cut and past, resample, re-filtered beyond what theprogram is capable, re-stretched, re-pitched and so on and so forth. From theseamalgamations, selections are chosen and developed further.”


  • Axel Gomo - Rear Window vol 5

    “Each impro starts more or less from a field recording from my rear window in a small courtyard in the northern area from Paris Montmartre. During the springtime 2020, two young girls from our neighborhood were regularly playing together. I begun to record them from our flat on the fourth floor. listening to nothing else than their small talks and a natural reverb. The girls were happy, their noisy children’s games was a bit of fresh air… One day a deranged man from the building next shouted at them, saying it was against the law and we should all be ‘locked down’. He called the police, who came, but did nothing. Since this incident the girls have been too scared to play in our courtyard, to our regret. From these recording sessions came 7 volumes of ‘Rear Window series’.

    This piece investigates the role gold has played in constructing technological utopias.  Throughout history gold has been associated with the Sun because of its color and everlasting luster.  In Do you remember the Sun?,I created a dystopian world where a colony of miners have moved into Earth’s orbit to scrap satellites for their gold content.  This piece consists of three tracks: 1.Poem – Do you remember the Sun?– written by Travis Dodd 2. Static – Recorded using a contact mic dropped in acid while dissolving gold. 3. Ambient music – created by manipulating acid sounds.

  • Counterflows - A Radiophonic Portrait of Antje Vowinckel

    20 November 2020 @ 10:00 am - 10:45 am

    more details

    At the kind invitation of Counterflows and the Goethe Institute, Mark Vernon and Barry Burns (experimental musicians, sound artists, radio producers and co-managers of Glasgow’s art radio station Radiophrenia) were invited to select a German artist to collaborate with on a new sound piece.

    Having heard some of Berlin based sound and radio artist Antje Vowinckel’s exceptional works submitted to previous editions of Radiophrenia, they invited her to participate. All three artists share a passion for the possibilities of the medium of radio and a fascination for the rhythms and cadences of speech.

    The resulting work should have been presented as part of Counterflows 2020 but unfortunately that was not to be. They are now working together on a longer term project for Counterflows 2021 but in the meantime Vernon & Burns in collaboration with Vowinckel have created an unorthodox sideways radiophonic portrait of the artist and her practice.

    The project began with a series of questions and actions devised by Vernon and Burns for Vowinckel to respond to remotely from her home in Berlin. This consisted of queries about her practice and relationship with sound and music, requests for descriptions and recordings of her immediate sound environment, domestic chores, singing, lists, sound memories and an analysis of the qualities of her own voice. All of the resultant material was combined with extracts of Vowinckel’s work and excerpts from field recordings and other compositions by all three artists. The eccentric approach in the resultant audio collage is not intended as an accurate portrait of Vowinckel, more as an impressionistic overview with interventions and twists on the conventional form; thoughts and meditations on the act of purposeful listening and sound creation.

    The raw material provided by Vowinckel was cut up, processed, manipulated and recontextualised by Vernon and Burns. The piece, with its playful approach to assemblage and composition, combines the personalities and working methods of all three artists. As such it functions as an introduction and a short trailer for what this new collaboration might produce next year.

    Monica Suarez Argudin – I’m floating in a loop (4:30)

    My piece has been inspired by a range of feelings I have felt since I left my country, Cuba. It’s like I’m not from there anymore; still, I never get to completely identify myself as part of the new society that surrounds me today. It also speaks a little bit about the political issues between the USA government and Castro’s. I applied my feelings and memories to create this piece. Two segments of a radio station from Cuba have been included, also a segment from Radio Martí, the end of Obama’s speech in Cuba, and my voice.

     Monica Argudin was born and raised in La Havana, Cuba. She graduated from a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design at the University of Tampa, Florida. Today, she is currently pursuing a master’s in fine art at Georgia State University,Atlanta, Georgia. Her passion for art + design began many years ago when language became a struggle for her to communicate with others. As an immigrant who had to learn English from scratch, she immediately understood how vital visuals elements are within human society.

  • Radio Kapital: Kapital Gains Day 5 - Gunnar Geisse

    20 November 2020 @ 11:00 am - 11:30 am

    more details

    Kapitał Gains is a daily radio programme showcasing live performances by Polish and German sound and radio artists, curated and hosted by Knut Aufermann. Every day at noon CET (11am GMT) from 16th to 22nd of November 2020 a roster of acclaimed noise makers will present solo or duo concerts from their homes live for the radio audience. Today it is the turn of Gunnar Geisse, laptop guitarist from Munich.

    The second half of the show is dedicated to works from the international radio art network Radia.

    Kapitał Gains is a project by Goethe Institut and Radio Kapitał in Warsaw, with partner broadcasts on ∏-node in Paris and Radiophrenia in Glasgow.

    Artist biog:
    Gunnar Geisse developed an instrument that he calls a laptop guitar, an extension of his former principal instrument, the electric guitar with the computer. This enables him to continue analogue playing on the digital level. He uses – based on the spectral characteristics of the original signal – the software-supported realtime conversion of audio into MIDI data in order to control virtual instruments and samplers. Besides improvising, Geisse dedicated himself to composing and electronics and understands the laptop guitar as a meta-instrument with which the most widely varied virtual instruments could be conceived, constructed and actually played.

  • Nina Queissner -Sound Ecology Part 5

    20 November 2020 @ 11:30 am - 11:45 am

    more details

    I was born in Germany and moved to France six years ago. I first studied humanities. After
    volunteering for several months at a local and non-commercial radio (l’Eko des Garrigues) I
    decided to shift to Fine Arts and integrated the Conservatory’s electro-acoustic music class
    to concentrate on music and sound within the field of Art. I graduated in 2019 from the
    Higher National Academy for Fine Arts in Bourges (ENSA) and in 2020 from the International
    Post-Graduate Program in Arts in Sound in Ghent, Belgium @ KASK/Conservatorium

    (EPAS). I am currently living and working in France.

    My artistic work is based on the exploration of the esthetic experience of sound and music.
    I use the technique of Field Recording and produce sound and video installations and
    performances. I frequently contribute my compositions and recordings to radio and cinema
    projects. Sometimes I work as a sound engineer for events such as concerts, theater shows
    or radio programs. Currently I am working with an environmental biologist with whom we
    founded the Observatory of the Hole in Deep Time that aims to analyze the links between
    Sound and Biodiversity in the Anthropocene era.

    Continuing with my practice inphotography, ‘Manoeuvre in 10/60’ follows an image’s navigation within thedarkroom, acting as a soundtrack to an image’s chemical creation. I became keento shift, or expand my perception of image-making, from my personal experiencewithin the process, to that of the image’s own experience. Sound providedanother sensory opportunity (in addition to sight), to engage with machines andthe interactions that go on between an image, light and water.

    I am currently a final year Fine Artstudent at the Edinburgh College of Art. Exploring the visual and sonicinteractions between objects, machines and humans, my practice is led by actionand exchange. Communication and language, within both the digital and physicalworld, are topics of interest within my work. I enjoy imagining how machinesdevelop systems of non-verbal language and considering how that may encouragean expansion in the realm of communication within human beings ourselves.

    A person is jogging around a burial mound, near to a standing stone circle. They run, using their phone to navigate over tombs and rocks passing inscriptions and woodland. 
    They spot a naked woman floating in the river. Her body is creating an interference….

    Sentient, a new commissioned work that ruminates on someone being on the same patch of land 12,000 years apart. 

    It’s narrative is circular and the score possesses a state of slippage; from neolithic quasi-time travel, to AI and other fluid immaterial states. 

    Eo has written specific new drum rhythms for this commission and has produced sounds with her voice, limbs and musical apparatus.

    The drums, percussion, choral chanting and broken narrative represent the past.
    The synths, looped stems, field recordings and other instrumentation, present day.  

    There is a spiritual dimension, which is a continuation of Eo’s research on musical lamentations and Gregorian Chants. 
    Alongside this sober state, there is also a playfulness and strong emphasis on the power of an imagination.

    Recorded by Eothen Stearn. Additional recording and mix by Chris White.

    Eothen Stearn is an interdisciplinary artist living in Glasgow, playing in bands NIGHTSHIFT, 2PLY and DIFFICULT.

    “In the consuming flow of time, from childhood to manhood, iconoclasm worms its way out of a man crushed by shame and guilt. Images observe him, they reveal his dark secrets.

    By purging all those accusing smiles he secures a momentary relief. As his resentment grows stronger, he retaliates against the most famous smile but he fails and by realising that people can’t comprehend his mind and never will, he learns that “misunderstanding” is freedom to treasure personal secrets.”
    Text by Monica Miuccio published by the academic psychology magazine Tecniche Conversazionali (Milano 2000), adapted and interpreted by Bernard

    “IRIDE PROJECT” Massimo Davi & Monica Miuccio is a performing duo and an exciting research into non-deterministic electro-acoustic music and sound emphasis poetry.
    They explore the sound through conventional and unconventional instruments, piezoelectric transducers, field recordings, electronics, voice/spoken word and an analogue modular synthesizer. Iride Project’s works were performed in Ireland, Italy, Portugal, Finland,

    1. Katherine Van Uytrecht – Listening Booth Episode1

    The Listening Booth is anauditory exploration into the nature of listening and our relationship to it.Intended as a series, this broadcast is an invitation to take up the challengeto re-think and reflect upon what we already assume to know aboutlistening. This episode explores howthe visual separation of sound from its source can alter our experiences oflistening and begins to question how we listen to something that we cannotimmediately perceive with our senses.

    I am an artist using printmaking, sculpture, installation, video,animation and sound to explore concepts of individual and group identity,community, who we are and how we are connected. I investigate the relationshipbetween sound, thought and listening and how these can create differentenvironments and realities through our actions and behaviours, as an act ofco-creation. By examining ideas and the politics around sound and listening, Iquestion the auditory nature of listening and the ability of sound to manifestinto other forms that can be used as a potential vehicle for bonding orhealing.

Throughout the ebb and flow ofprotest, you can hear my perspective; unaware of the meaning of the chants butuncomfortably understanding their rhythm. It ends with a call-to-prayer from aMosque; the sounds of Islam and Hindu fundamentalism in audible conflict,representing a dissonance or a harmonic celebration of diversity, depending onyour perspective.

    This track forms part of a larger work in progress,developed out of a two-week residency at the Elizabeth Bishop House in NovaScotia in September 2019. Using field recordings, archival sound and newcomposition, it weaves together the experiences of a woman trying to navigate anunfamiliar, post-societal landscape and the voice of a man who is of this place, but of a different time. Hewas the draegerman of the mines, the rescuer, and he tells of the underground worldhe remembers, recalls the voices of those he rescued and those he could not.Thetwo are not directly aware of each other, yet their journeys intertwine, astogether they coax the landscape into language, as they look for ways throughthe present towards possible futures.

    Helen Tookey is a poet and a writer of creative non-fiction, based in Liverpool. Martin Heslop is a sound artist, composer/musician, andpoet, based in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Alongside our individual practices, we have been making text/sound work collaboratively for the past five years. We explorehow sound works to help shape (or fragment) narrative, to highlight theproductive tension between presence and absence (a recorded voice is always insome senses a ghost, an echo), and to hold and convey emotional affect and tone. We are also interested in how field recordings can be used to explore therelationship between language and the physical environment.

    Innse Gall ‘The Islands of the Strangers’ is a companion piece to the film An Dà Shealladh ‘The Two Sights’; a sound focused documentary that cinematically re-connects a disappearing oral tradition to its surroundings.

    These two compositions were developed from studies made for the films soundtrack using the same elements: hydrophone and field recordings collected on the islands of Barra, Berneray, North Uist, Harris, & Lewis between 2017-19, collaged and assembled in Ithaca, New York 2017-20.

    In the spirit of Glen Gould’s contrapuntal radio documentaries and Luc Ferrari’s Anecdotal Music the work explores the shifting acoustic ecology of the islands interwoven fragments of dialogue, song, and industry.

     Joshua Bonnetta (b.Canada 1979) is an artist and filmmaker working at the edges of documentary across installation, performance, and traditional cinema exhibition.

    His films have been shown at The Berlinale, BFI London Film Festival, ICA London, MOMA, New York Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival, Whitechapel Gallery, Viennale, and others. His work has been written about in Art Forum, Frieze, Sight & Sound, Cinemascope, The Guardian, and the New YorkTimes.

    Sylvia Wynter’s Maskarade (1973), uses the concept of “Reverse Time” as way of interpreting “carnival-time” and the performance of the world turned upside down. Up becomes down and forward becomes backward; the procession moving in opposing time. 

    Using an autobiographical approach, OHCE is a sonic procession. Field recordings and choreographic directions situate the listener within the liminal position between two places, Guyana and Scotland; using sound, memory, composition and movement to meet an echo backwards. 

    Ashanti Harris is a multi-disciplinary visual artist and researcher working with dance, performance and movement, alongside sculpture, film, sound and installation. With a focus on re-contextualising historical narratives, Ashanti’s work explores the movement of people, ideas and things and the wider social implications of these movements. Her recent research subjects have included dance of the African and Caribbean diaspora in Scotland and Speculating the historical legacies of Guyanese women in Scotland in the 18th and 19th centuries.

    As part of her creative practice, she is co-director for Project X – a creative education programme, platforming dance and performance from the African and Caribbean diaspora; and works collaboratively as part of the collective Glasgow Open Dance School (G.O.D.S) – facilitating experimental movement workshops and research groups.

    Considering the juxtaposing auditory qualities between the conversational medium of the radio and our more abstract personal sound works, we decided to opt for a middle ground in their presentation. Choosing to omit speech altogether we communicated, via the use of 4-band radios and a collectively devised text score, our reactions to each others individual pieces as we heard them in an improvised group performance.

  • Zoë Strachan & Nichola Scrutton - Up Closeness (live in the studio)

    20 November 2020 @ 5:10 pm - 5:40 pm

    more details

    A dialogue between two green urban spaces, in the south and west of Glasgow. Lockdown forced us to look closely at the local, in an attempt to find small connections amid the dislocation from everyday life. In this piece, site-specific field recordings are combined with found and composed text to animate these two distinct places. Live mixing and improvisation in the moment of broadcast enact a mimetic reinhabiting of two places at the same time.

    Nichola Scrutton is an award-winning composer and improviser, vocalist, performer, sound artist and facilitator who works across a range of mediums including visual. She has extensive experience as a collaborator in interdisciplinary and participatory contexts, including with Sonic Bothy inclusive music charity in the Ensemble and across various projects.Nichola was awarded a PhD from university of Glasgow for her portfolio Hearing Voices.

    Zoë Strachan is an award-winning novelist and librettist, who also writes short stories and essays. She is Reader in Creative Writing at University of Glasgow. Zoë and Nichola have an ongoing collaboration making experimental sound art/radio works.

    Giles Perring – Intervention 5 featuring Melanie Pappenheim (7:00)

    WORLD ORGAN ‘Interventions’

    This is a series of songs and improvisations delivered by remote collaborators in conjunction with Giles Perring’s sound installation on Jura, the World Organ. The pieces are assembled in different ways that reflect the various listening experiences of the players, and the colours of the sound that the organ ‘hears’.

    Alongside Giles Perring, on Jura, the performers are

    Melanie Pappenheim, Kennington, London. ’Two Corbies’
    Kirsty Law, Edinburgh, ‘My Heart Is Sair’ [Robert Burns arr. Law]
    Susie Honeyman, Edinburgh, ‘Over the Sound’
    Albert Kuvezin, Kyzyl, Tuva ‘Talking to Spirits’
    Ivor Kallin, Clapton, London, ‘Trumpton Fire Brigade’
    Rob Mills, Swanage, ‘The Ministry of Wind’

    Giles and Ivor have played in various improvising bands together, notably Ya Basta and power trio The Scheidt. Rob Mills and Susie Honeyman are both long standing colleagues of Giles from their work together in the sonic sculpture group Echo City. Giles produced Albert Kuvezin & Yat Kha’s number one World Music album ‘Poets and Lighthouses’ on Jura in 2010. Giles first performed with Melanie Pappenheim in the vocal big band The Shout. They have since made a number of music and sound works for radio and theatre together. Giles works with Kirsty Law on recordings and cross-media projects having first collaborated together with Stornoway story teller Ian Stephen.

    Nwando Ebizie – Don’t Look Now (5:03)


    Radio Noise Duo – Smoke and Mirrors (10:02)

    The track was created as a result of a fascination with radio noise. In the ideologicalcontext, it refers to two cultural phenomena. The first one is related to the illusionistictechnique, which started in the 18th century, which consists in creating theimpression that a person is floating in an empty space. While creating thepiece, we imagined that a person could levitate with a sufficiently loud radionoise. The second context is related to the circulation of information in timesof excess and the practice of information noise leading to a kind ofdisambiguation. In this case, radio noise seems to be a source of allinformation, as well as a carrier of aesthetics that provokes hypnoticlistening.

    Radio NoiseDuo. Duet (Tomasz Misiak and Marcin Olejniczak from Poland) lookingfor inspiration in electricity, radio noise and amplified everyday objects.Earlier the musicians were associated with groups like ,,kalEka’’ (Misiak) or,,Monopium’’ (Olejniczak), but they also had some solo projects. ,,Radio NoiseDuo’’ is a part of ,,Radio Noise Orchestra’’ – still continuing initiativefocused on radio noise in various artistic activities.

  • Gabi Schaffner - Time is a Sliding Door

    20 November 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 6:45 pm

    more details

    Time is a sliding door –  but if so, what does it mean?

    “Time is a Sliding Door” is a variation of Ralph Waldo Emerson’s saying that “Reality is a Sliding Door”. As if that wasn’t tricky enough, substituting ‘reality’ with the noun ‘time’ unravels a kaleidoscope of meanings and implications that turns the ground of our presumptuous existence into a wobbly pudding. If Time is a Sliding Door, and we push it aside, what happens beyond the threshold? The act of sliding means that the other side is only slowly revealed. As well as with a thud, thunder and roll. As radio is a medium which transgresses our notion of time and space, both naturally and effortlessly, how does it come into the picture? If the door opens onto a 5th dimension, and/or still others, how could this be ‘enlistened’ into a radiophonic scape? To be honest, the author of these lines doesn’t actually know, and how could she?

    As humans we continue to be tethered to time as a condition of our communication, our perception, our being. It just seemed fit to start with a speedy panorama of the “Swabian-Alemannic Fasnet”. Fasnet (or “Fastnacht”) is also called the “fifth season of the year”, and is recorded in central Europe at least since the 13th century. Its presentation of an inverted world, the parades of Jesters, Fools and Witches, the almost deafening onrush of drums, ‘Fools Cries’, trombones, trumpets and bells truly create a different time horizon.Other acoustic inhabitants of this composition are the cuckoo-clock and clocks in general, as this region of Germany is famous for its clock-makers since the 17th century. And after all, it is not just the shamans of the Northern Tunguska who believe that the cuckoo’s call presages the number of years one has left to live…

     Time is a Sliding Door sticks to the human dimension, playing with the acts of acceleration and deceleration, with the notion of journeying (we shall be travelling from the Black Forest to New Mexico and from there to Slovenia – at least), spellbound by folk tunes, with the whisperings of shortwaves captured in open and discreet places. Hidden stories keep on drifting through radio space, sites and signals keep travelling, and wherever they may go, eventually an alien molecule, touched by radio might spark off the impulse for that door to open up into the unforeseeable. Meanwhile, we’ll keep hanging around this auditory doorstep.

    Gabi Schaffner works as a trans-disciplinary artist within the realms of radio art, composition and performance. Her artistic practice is determined by the methods of poetic ethnography in connection with fluxus-like mise-en-scènes, radio-making and sound art performances. Much of her work originates from journeys. Next to her radiophonic productions, Schaffner creates speculative musical genres and inserts them into music history in order to raise awareness for cultural, gender-related and/or geographical conditions.

    Schaffner has been realising award-winning productions with Deutschlandfunk Kultur, radia.fm, Hessian Cultural Radio and ABC Australia. Since 2012 she maintains “Datscha Radio”, a nomadic transmission project that links the medium of radio to current ecological issues.

    As a writer and translator, she has published numerous texts; most recently: “RevoltenDiaries”, in: Radio Revolten, 2019. She holds a MA in literature and ethnography and a diploma in visual communication. Gabi Schaffner lives in Berlin.

  • Victoria Evans - Deep Space Call And Response

    20 November 2020 @ 6:45 pm - 7:00 pm

    more details

    We have extended our perception into the far reaches of space through a complex international network of satellites and ground stations. These are our remote eyes and ears, extending our senses to Mars, Mercury and beyond. This twelve minute audio imagines what their communication might sound like. 

    Deep Space Call and Response is a sonic meditation on communication over distance, and the beauty and fragility of co-operative networks.

    From a background in the film and television industry, Victoria Evans graduated with a master’s degree in fine art practice from Glasgow School of Art. In 2019 she was awarded a studentship by the Scottish Graduate School to conduct practice-based PhD research at Edinburgh College of Art. She has exhibited across Scotland in group and solo shows and has attended residencies at home and abroad. Victoria works with moving image, sound, sculpture and installation. One of the strands of her research involves the sonification of data to create novel audience experiences relating to human-made and environmental cycles.

    2. Adam Winnie – Slow Deep Grind                           

    “I’m looking for sounds which defy logic. These auditory sculptures are born out of experimentation, they are not considered music and are not structured as such.I’m interested in the creation sounds which have never been heard by the human ear but which possess power to captivate and hypnotize while gnawing at the skull.They best way to experience them is by limiting all other senses. In constructing these experiments in developing new auditory experiences I utilize both digital and analog recordings which are passed though many many filters,stretched, pitch shifted, cut and past, resample, re-filtered beyond what the program is capable, re-stretched, re-pitched and so on and so forth. From these amalgamations, selections are chosen and developed further.”

    Adam Gabriel Winnie (b. Michigan, United States1981) received a B.F.A. in painting from Savannah College of Art & Design in 2012 and is a current 1st year M.F.A. candidate at the Georgia State University’s Ernest G.

    3, LucieMcLaughlin & Chris Penty – Sol’emeNite-e

    Sol’em-nit-e is a poem and sound space, created using recordings in both public and private places. Drips and drops from the boiler or kitchen meet the intermittent tuning of churchorgans to display a writing in sound which unravels throughout the breathy prose of a mind wandering. The thoughts heard here are at once intimate and also empty, the air whispering from sites where we meet,collectively, but are often alone. 

    Lucie McLaughlin is an interdisciplinary artist and writer from Belfast, Northern Ireland. Her work has been published in Faultline Journal of Arts and Letters, California, performed at Raven Row, London and exhibited at Lily Robert Gallery, Paris. She is currently on the MLitt Art Writing at Glasgow School of Art.

    4. NeilJohnstone, Sam Leamy & Steve Garden – Forest of Dreams

    From their album Chalk Dogs, a series of multi-layered works created during, and in response to New Zealand’s Covid-19 Lockdown between April and June of 2020. The project, created and completed entirely in isolation, explores the blurred lines between inner and outer tensions at a time of unease and uncertainty.

    The works are subconscious meditations on chance and unpredictability, seclusion and isolation, impermanence and degeneration, surreal and unsettling spaces that suggest a Lynchian and Victorian Grand Guignol underpinned by a sense of loss and quiet despair.

    Atmos_Inter_Phere_Ence is a 30-minute FM radio feedback improvisation capturedusing a low-powered FM transmitter, and an Eton Elite Field multi-band radio.The radio is fed into an EQ and delay, then to the mixing board. That output issent to the transmitter, which the Eton receives, creating the feedback loop.Broadcasting while recording this performance on 88.9 MHz in the town where Ilive in Vermont, USA, I don’t know who heard it, but cats surely coveredtheir ears. The title refers to the broadcast interference I am producingand to the atmosphere through which these signals are traveling. 

    Jonny Farrow is a multi-disciplinary artist working acrosssculpture, hardware hacking, printmaking, and sound art. His work uses sound asboth a poetics and a material to research the liminal spaces of cultural memoryand suspect histories. Utilizing concepts such as resonance, feedback, andtransmission, Farrow sounds these spaces through various material means andaims to set them vibrating. He was the host of The Distract and DisableProgram for five years on WGXC/Wave Farm and is a member of the NRRFB-Radio Collective (since 2012) along with Anna Friz, Jeff Kolar, Stephen Germana,and Peter Speer.
