Live Stage: Radio Territories @ Ballhaus [de Berlin]

ballhaus.jpgRadio Territories :: Derek Holzer (US/NL), Jason Kahn (US/CH), Brandon LaBelle (US/DK) :: Friday, June 1, 18:00 to 23:00 (works performed simultaneously throughout the building) :: Ballhaus Naunynstrasse, Naunynstrasse 27, Berlin.

While changes in live streaming and digital networks have transformed the use and understanding of radio, the notion and act of live transmission through the air continues to inspire and haunt the auditory imagination. From the potential of spreading information undercover of legal borders to filling the airwaves with fugitive sound, radio may remain at the core of what it means to communicate through circuits.

Inspired by the radiophonic excesses and marginal acts, an evening of performative installations by sound artists working with and around radio and its medial aesthetics will be staged. Using the building of Ballhaus Naunynstrasse, the works will aim for the intimate, tactile, and personal, bending radio toward the micro-narratives of place. The event is also organized in celebration of the release of the new publication, Radio Territories (Errant Bodies Press), containing essays, articles, documents and audio works by authors and artists on the subject of radio culture.

Derek Holzer is a sound artist with a background in radio, webstreaming and environmental recording. His work focuses on capturing and transforming small, unnoticed sounds from various natural and urban locations, networked collaboration strategies, experiments in improvisational sound and the use of free software such as Pure-Data. He has released tracks under the Nexsound, Sirr, and/OAR and Gruenrekorder labels, and has co-initiated several internet projects for field recording and collaborative soundscapes including Soundtransit.nl.

Brandon LaBelle is an artist and writer working with sounds, places, bodies, and cultural frictions. He presented a solo exhibition at Singuhr galerie in Berlin (2004), and an experimental composition for pirate drummers as part of Virtual Territories, Nantes (2005). His ongoing project to build a library of radio memories, “Phantom Radio”, was presented fall 2006 as part of Radio Revolten, Halle Germany. He is the author of “Background Noise: Perspectives on Sound Art” and editor of Errant Bodies Press.

Jason Kahn is a sound and visual artist based in Zurich. His work includes drawing, sound installation, performance and composition. As a composer, his work draws on electronic and acoustic sources to create slowly developing compositions imbued with a sense of timelessness, underlining the entity of sound as both physical and psychological. Kahn has been exhibiting his works since the late 1990s, and has had solo and group exhibitions internationally, including the USA, Canada, France, Croatia, Germany, Argentina, Egypt, Poland, Switzerland, Denmark, Austria and Spain.
