Live Stage: Radio Fragments [de Berlin]

radiofragments.jpgRadio Fragments: Transforming Radiophonic Silences into Sound Stories — A sound installation by Andre Castro :: January 4-8, 2010; 2:00 – 5:00 pm :: NK, Elsenstr. 52/2, Hinterhaus Etage 2, 12059 Berlin.

Radio Fragments is a radiophonic project that aims to explore an auditory attention, different from the one usually associated with the experience of listening to the radio, making use of the spaces-in-between-words-and-songs that occur throughout the radiophonic discourse as its main reagent.

Its basic formula consists of an analysis-control mechanism (built in Super Collider) residing inside a computer to which a real-time mainstream radio broadcast is fed. This mechanism acts as a reversed-noise-gate, singling out what is usually ignored or avoided in a radiophonic context (whispers, stumbles, pauses, dead spaces and errors) and muting all the other sounds such as words or songs.

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MYKtwXaUxeU&feature=related[/youtube]A complaints choir rehearsed in Japan before its performance at the Mori Art Museum last month. The group’s litany of grievances focused on work more than those of choirs in other places.

As Ko Sasaki reports in The New York Times : Recently a group of about 100 Tokyo residents put their complaints into a pile and a composer, Okuchi Shunsuke, turned them into a song. About 80 of the complainers (accompanied by an accordion, a bass cello and a tambourine) then performed the composition at various sites around the city, becoming the latest example of what has become known as a complaints choir.

Masters Program in Sound Studies [Berlin]

a6_ostkreuzsstlogokl_web_ger_eng.jpgSound Studies/Acoustic Communication Master’s Program Sound Studies :: Berlin University of the Arts.

Sound studies explore and form the acoustic dimensions of culture by using interdisciplinary methods. While applying a broader scale of theories and practices originating in art, cultural and social sciences, or design, sound studies aim at equally comprehensive and profound investigations of sonic phenomena, which then can be realized in diverse forms: as texts, as interventions, as works of art or as commercial projects. To cover all aspects, Sound Studies / Acoustic Communication at the Berlin University of the Arts are structured in four different fields: anthropology and ecology of sounds, experimental sound art and sound design, digital audio design, and acoustic conceptualization / brand communication.
