Artist-technologist Honor Harger listens to the weird and wonderful noises of stars and planets and pulsars. In her work, she tracks the radio waves emitted by ancient celestial objects and turns them into sound, including “the oldest song you will ever hear,” the sound of cosmic rays left over from the Big Bang.

radiophonic_01.jpgThe History of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop

50 years ago this month (April 2008), the most celebrated electronic music studio in the world was established. We trace the history of the Radiophonic Workshop, talking to the composers and technical staff who helped to create its unique body of work — Steve Marshall

image: Before the Workshop: Daphne Oram manipulates a tape loop at Broadcasting House, watched by Frederick Bradnum, 1956 or ’57

I was 10 years old. As the last ‘whoosh’ of the Doctor Who theme dissolved into a wash of tape echo I sat transfixed by the light of the television, eagerly reading all of the end credits. “Wow!” I exclaimed. “I want to get a job in the BBC Radiophonic Workshop when I grow up!”

“I’m sorry, son,” said my father. “You won’t be able to do both.” Continue reading

Live Stage: Radius, Episode 07: Foradius by Sturqen [us Chicago, IL]

radiussmall.jpegRadius will broadcast Episode 07: Foradius by Sturgen — César Rodrigues and David Arantes, a duo from Portugal. Their music explores a vast amount of sonic rhythmics where a techno-trance universe is combined with a constant noise attitude.

The fragmented radio clips were then digitally processed and joined together to create the 18-minute composition. Continue reading

As part of an outreach project in small cities in the use of sound and radio media as part of a new artistic concept: radio art, you are invited to participate with sounds, through the minimum of the radio art concepts: “the limits of artistic ham radio never been nor will be clear and definitive, in many cases the boundaries are exceeded, and often new artistic initiatives lend themselves to gender confusion. This is the case of radio art, as new discipline, transgressive, avant-garde, can not be easily pigeonholed or seeks views on its unique and decisive reason for being. Continue reading

NMR Commission: “Spectral Quartet” by Woody Sullender

sullender.jpgSpectral Quartet — by Woody Sullender — is a web adaptation of the project Whispering Spectres, which will be installed at Turbulence @Pace Digital Gallery 2, April 5-29, 2011.

The audio content consists of filtered radio signals, culled from various web streams from the Internet. These signals are being passed through many “band pass filters”, a type of equalizer that allows a small range of frequencies through while attenuating frequencies outside of this range. In effect, most of the audio signal is “erased” except for a narrow stratum of frequency material. This work highlights small, hidden musical moments that are occurring on radio, but are usually rendered inaudible by other elements in the sound. Continue reading
