Ghost sound track :
realized for the exhibit “Ghosts’ Strips” presented at “La Ferme Du Buisson” (Noisiel, France) in April, 2015.
The exhibit initiated by Gwen de Bonneval and the scenographer Philippe Dupuy, shows comic strips’ projects that never have been published, remained for years in their author’s boxes. In one of the two exhibit’s rooms, the public can listen to a 4 surround channels sound track which illustrate ghostly extracts’ pictures of these projects.
Henry Landré’s idea was to try to pursue the ghost’s presence with slidings, frictions, crackles and other voices which tickle the ear… trying to define what could be this untouchable presence.
For him, in a wider way, Radio are the Ghosts.

This week show is a radio piece by artist Jeremiah Day, with whom Radio Papesse had the chance to collaborate since his arrival at Villa Romana, in Florence, last January 2015.
This piece constitutes a chapter of the ongoing public talks marking the conclusion of Day’s Doctorate of the Arts project: A Kind of Imagination that has Nothing To Do with Fiction? Allan Kaprow and Hannah Arendt and a Practice for a New Publicness of Art.
Jeremiah Day’s work is a personal exploration of art’s capacity to have a role in public life. This talk – a thought experiment in what would be involved in making a performance in a prison or jail – sits ambiguously between being an artwork itself and a piece of critical reflection on art practice today.
It was recorded on July 15, 2015 at Radio Papesse’s studio at Villa Romana, Florence.
BIO | Jeremiah Day’s work employs photography, speech and improvisational movement. Questions of site and historical memory are explored through fractured narrative and image. In a hybrid form of realism, Day appropriates historical incident to serve as metaphor and exemplification that can shed insight upon broader philosophical and political questions.
Day graduated from the Art Department of the University of California at Los Angeles in 1997 and lived and worked in Los Angeles until moving to Holland in 2003 to attend the Rijksakademie.
From 2000 to 2002 Day was artist-in-residence at Beyond Baroque Literary Arts Center in Los Angeles where he organized such events as The Great Silence: 10 Years After the Burning, commemorating the 1992 riots.
Day’s performances, photographs and installations have been presented at such institutions as the Santa Monica Museum, the Smart Museum at the University of Chicago, the Centre George Pompidou in Paris, the Stedelijk Museum and this year’s Thessaloniki Biennial and his work held in the public collection of Frac Champagne-Ardenne and the Stedelijke Museum, Amsterdam.
A short documentary about last year’s collaboration with the Arnolfini, Bristol is shown here.

Reni Hofmüller, 2015
Water molecules enter emphere connections among themselves, let go, connect again and let go… water also connects to a lot of other substances/elements. And lets go again.
And so, water can be huge, a river, a lake, an ocean, and also tiny, a drop, a particle of a cell. It can be peaceful and quiet, or wild, rough and destructive. It can connect with nutrients just the same as with poison. Some researchers assume that water has memory – which could explain homeopathy. Others dont call it memory because that would imply conciousness, but they speak of resonances. They explain the uniquness of each snowflake as a result of a combination of frequences that the water molecule was exposed to while freezing. In any case water sounds differently deqending on how much of it moves at the same time, and on which ground it moves, be that the creek bed, the bouncing rain drop, the junction of a river into a lake, the sound of the sea, or the cracking of melting ice in water, above or under ground.
For the Poolloop Festival Zürich 2015, Reni and Jogi Hofmüller went on a sound research trip through the water world of Zurich – inflows and drains, canal and dewatering systems, drinking water and sewage plant, usage of tab and bottled water, from the microscopically small segment of a rain puddle to the bubbling of the Limmat to the shallow waters of Zürichsee and into the air, where all water goes, attracted by the sun and then let go. Connect and let go.

The two audio pieces by Yngvild Rolland presented in this weeks Radia show are based on material from Jean-Luc Godard’s film Weekend (1967).
The first excerpt, titled The Study of a Killing, is a sampled and modified score using sound directly from the film. The second excerpt is from Untitled. Deconstructed Languages. The piece is the result of a continuous change of language, where film dialogue has been translated to text, this text has then been translated to three languages and published as the book weekendWEEKENDWeek-End (2014). Then the published texts have been translated to sound using a Typatune. Another modified version of the sound is combined with an altered scene from the film Weekend in the video Death, Disaster and Expensive Handbags (2010).
Yngvild K. Rolland is a Norwegian artist exploring various media, languages and their connections. She is educated in London and Oslo.

ASMR is Auto Sensory Meridian Response.
The ‘response’ is a pleasurable tingling sensation on and around the scalp, caused by certain ‘triggers’. More often than not ASMR has a strong connection to intimacy, although pleasant and intimate does not equate to sexual.
You may know of ASMR through its community of millions of youtube users. They are (mostly) young female artists staring earnestly into the camera as they gently caress microphones and domestic objects.
ASMR videos are a shortcut to the physical remnants of intimacy. They are created to replicate distinct sensations of stimulation to a diverse but invisible community of ASMRers. The imagination behind this clandestine physicality is superficially intersected with roleplays of mystic hypnosis, new-age relaxation and shamanic rituals.
Tune in with headphones to hear a live binaural sound work using familiar ASMR triggers and the female gaze. Marie Toseland and Sophie Mallett team up to explore the sonic results of an online obsession with intimacy.

We had several spare days for the Easter holidays, so we went to small town Resen and Prespa Lake. There was still snow on the mountains around, on Baba and Galichica, but here the day was sunny and bright. There are several nice villages around the lake and we took long walk from Stenje to Konjsko. The others went to the near monastery, but i went to the small beach of Konjsko. On the way down to the beach there was a huge dump, the results of the civilization. Obviously it was done by the people of the village. Whenever they go to the beach they have to pass by it. And of course nobody was doing anything about it. Reminding us of our civilization and its consequences.
I set at the sand near the water and was listening to the birds that were flying or diving into the water. There are lots of endemic bird species nesting around on the bay and on the near island. I started playing with the shells and the cane branches. Was relaxing and meditative. The water drops, shells, cane crackling… Birds were singing… making me forgot about all that was surrounding me.
This is an audio story of this day, written through recordings done on the small beach of the village Konjsko. This is an audio story about nature, but also about our civilization.

Kolektiv Cirkulacija 2 napoveduje dvotedensko koncentrirano dogajanje
(po domače: festival) tehnologije, zvoka in svetlobe, ter performativnih praks,
ki bo potekal od 4. do 18. junija 2015 v dvorani Cirkulacije 2 na Tobačni 5 v
Ljubljani. Naslov projekta je Hrup smo mi: Kulturni vmesniki.
Okvirna tema festivala so “kulturni vmesniki”, kar je besedna zveza povzeta
iz besedila teoretika novih medijev Leva Manovicha – Teorija kulturnih
vmesnikov. Kvaliteta besedila je v tem, da poudarja razširjeno razumevanje
vmesnikov (v splošnem: nečesa, kar stoji med nami in realnostjo in vedno
reprezentira realnost). Ker vmesniki torej vedno interpretirajo realnost, s tem
tudi definirajo kulturo – vzorce razumevanja, obnašanja in uporabe. Med
dejanskim in našo interpretacijo je torej vedno kulturni vmesnik, ki bolj ali
manj verno odslika podobo. Lahko, da celo podobo iznakaže – laže ali
predlaga navidezne resnice (mite, želje, predkoncepcije, ideologije). Seveda
nas bolj kot reproduciranje prevalentnih kulturnih vzorcev zanimajo njih
Sodelujoči: Uwe Schüler in Jördis Drawe (Tübingen/Nemčija), Ronald Gonko
(Nemčija), Mike Hentz (Nemčija), Ole Wulfers (Nemčija), Borut Savski
(Slovenija), Stefan Doepner (Slovenija, Nemčija), Boštjan Leskovšek
(Slovenija), Boštjan Čadež (Slovenija), Lina Rica (Hrvaška, Slovenija),
Jakob Hariš (Slovenija), Neven Korda (Slovenija). V nadaljevanju leta se bodo s
svojimi avtorskimi pristopi predstavili še Dušan Zidar (akka Spiro Mason),
Borut Kržišnik (in še kdo…).

This show has two parts:
PART 1 (0’00″-11’00″)
by Amber Meulenijzer, Lukas De Clerck, Lise Bonduelle
PART 2 (11’00-28’00) =
by Dieter Van Dam, Alma Soderberg and Hendrik Willekens
this piece is an excerpt from a radio remix of the voice performance ‘Idioter’ by choreographer Alma Soderberg & musician Hendrik Willekens. Together they create a concert performance in which Willekens’ music supports Söderberg’s bodily movements and voice. She plays with syllables, intonation, cadence, gestures and dream language - creating a play between intensity and rhythm. The focus is on the flow. In addition the work includes drawings by Willekens: geometric landscapes that disappear into a single vanishing point. He makes these drawings over and over again whereby the expansion of the landscape becomes a theme in the work; each time the viewer is drawn towards the same ‘nothingness’.The audio was recorded in Het Stuk in Leuven on February 19th of this year. The sound recordings were then remixed with both influences for the performance and associated sounds by the artist.

Posnetek predavanja v okviru razstave NSK – od Kapitala do kapitala.:
GLEDALIŠČE/NSK KOT DRŽAVA IN GLEDALIŠČE/NSK KOT VOJNI STROJ
Nomadsko anarhokozmistično gledališče Dragana Živadinova
Možno je tudi, da je, pa naj bo duhovna ali posvetna, tiranska ali demokratska, kapitalistična ali socialistična, vedno obstajala samo ena edina Država, država-psica, ki se ‘peni in kriči ko govori’ … Kot skupno obzorje tistega, kar prihaja prej in tistega, kar prihaja potem, ona pogojuje svetovno zgodovino samo pod pogojem, da je ne zunaj, temveč vedno ob strani, mrzla pošast, ki predstavlja način prek katerega je zgodovina v ‘glavi’, v ‘možganih, Urstaat. (Deleuze in Guattari, Anti-Ojdip)
Poleg tega, da že ob ustanovitvi določi čas svoje samoukinitve in si omeji trajanje na štiri leta, je ena najpomembnejših in hkrati najpresenetljivejših izjav anonimnega gledališkega kolektiva NSK – Gledališča sester Scipion Nasice – vsekakor tista, s katero se to gledališče ogradi od koncepta gledališča kot praznega prostora ter se deklarativno razglasi za državo:
Gledališče med Gledalcem in Igralcem ne obstaja.
Gledališče ni prazen prostor.
Gledališče je Država. (Scipion Nasice, 1983)
