Radio the Receiver by Robert Piotrowicz: Wednesday, 27.7.2005, 20.30. “Radio the Receiver” is an electro acoustic composition, which works with sounds, which are lost in the linearity of radio transmission. Besides all the voices and stations on the ether there are sites of fracture of technical perfection, which are adopted by Robert Piotrowicz. Where the listener can’t influence the transferred signal or can elude the signal only by leaving the wave band itself, “Radio the Receiver” transforms the passivity of the radio listener into a process of creation.

“Radio the Receiver” creates a new ether made up of unidentified noises, distorted transmissions and those particles of the transmission signal, which do not contain information. The soundscape recordings are partly processed with an analogue modular Synthesizer, partly left in their shape. The composition distillates a narration from the infinity of information, which is contained in the radio signal, a narration which gives voice to the therein hidden and to the aesthetics of the sounds, the signals and their dynamics.

Two Way Radios (2WR) by Guy van Belle: Thursday, 28.7.2005, 20.30–“Two Way Radios (2WR)” is a project of the Belgian Guy von Belle, who develops multimedia-technologies for artistic use since 1990. He works with several bi-directional audio streams for “2WR”. Four performers (Guy van Belle, mxHz.org, Akihiro Kubota, Tokyo, Barbara Huber, Linz, Aymeric Monsoux, goto10.org Rotterdam) generate and mutually change their 4 Livestreams and thereby tie up to the manifold history of artistic radio utopias. In spirit of these utopias radio shall create a simultaneous connection between the here and the elsewhere, establish communication and response in both directions. [Related]

The Future Of Radio Art by LIGNA: Friday, 29.7.2005, 16.00–The group LIGNA from Hamburg designs experimental situations, which use the potentials of radio that are inherent to this medium, but which are forgotten and ignored. With “The Future of Radio Art” the radio-activist group conceives a 55-minutes radio play, which works at the same time as a discourse on radio and as a performative intervention in public space. The radio play (German/English) broaches the issue of ‘radio’ and is about that listening to radio always changes the situation in which it happens. It deals with the constellation of listeners created by radio and the potentials of these constellations. It will recommend simple exercises to the listeners to help them to comprehend these potentials of radio. The performative part takes place in the pedestrian area of Stralsund. There the broadcast becomes audibly scattered and thus the acoustic situation in public space is changed.

P. und Wolf (Die Theorie des Durchschnittlichen) by Tomasz Gwiecieski. Wednesday, 3.8.2005, 20.30–Tomasz Gwiecieski ties in the Polish tradition of readings and radio plays with “P. und Wolf (Die Theorie des Durchschnittlichen)” (P. and the Wolf. The Theory of the Average). It is a musical fairy tale, which is assembled on dialogues between instruments, but refers also to the use of voices and noises in old Polish child records published in the 70’s and 80’s as sound radio plays. The pre-produced composition is realized by a chamber orchestra, Elektronica and a voice. Krzysztof Gruses “Die Theorie des Durchschnittlichen” contributes the text basis.

Der Versuch “ber etwas anderes als mich selbst zu sprechen” by Marc Degens/Jarek Grzesica: Tuesday, 9.8.2005, 20.30–“Der Versuch “ber etwas anderes als mich selbst zu sprechen” (“The attempt to speak about something else than me”), a text by the Berlin author Marc Degens meets the sound world of the Polish sound artist Jarek Grzesica. The text tells three small episodes of the childhood of a boy in the 70’s/80’s. In three situations the boy meets other people on the roads or in his neighbourhood. Obviously these meetings play an important role in his growth. Recordings of the text in German, Polish and English are the basis of Jarek Grzesica’s work, who arranges three versions and integrates them into his sonic material.

Energistic Radio by Michal Gerczycski, Jan Duszycski, Tomasz Duda; Wednesday, 10.8.2005, 20.30–The radio performance “Energistic Radio” is a 50-minutes cooperation of the young polish composer and improviser Michal Gerczyzski with the composer and interpreter Tomasz Duda. What begins sonically as an abstract radiostudio, develops into a piece of improvisation, whose scenario is based on Michal Gerczyzski’s “Energistic Manifesto”. Inspiration from different music directions, noises of everyday life and the sonic characteristics of certain geographic areas are processed in a way, that the listener is able to recognize already well-known within the plentitude of the sound material. According to the “Energistic Manifesto” this happens on a level, which wants to approach to the sources of inspiration on an emotional level. “Energistic Radio” merges thereby the listener into the sound world of the medium radio in a subtle way and creates connections beyond an attitude of perception, as it is promoted in format radio: being only offered sounds which could easily be deciphered.
