Always is always forever
As long as one is one
Inside yourself for your father
All is none all is none all is one
It’s time we put our love behind you
The illusion has just been a dream
The valley of death and I’ll find you
Now is when on a sunshine beam
So bring all the young perfection
For there us shall surely be
No clothing, tears, or hunger
You can see you can see you can be

Pour l’émission 514, Jet FM donne Carte Blanche à Julien Quentel, plasticien nantais. Voici ce qu’il m’écrit à propos de sa pièce réalisée pour Radia :
Tout cela restera bien énigmatique, comme l’est d’ailleurs le noir de la nuit!
je n’ai rien à revendiquer, ni la prise de son, ni la technique, ni même un lien affectif avec le lieu…
rien de tout ça, juste ce qui reste à l’écoute, que l’univers est dans la nuit.—
** English version**
For the Radia Show n°514, Jet FM gave “carte blanche” to Julien Quentel, visual artist from Nantes. This is what he wrote me to present his piece :
All this will remain well enigmatic, as the dark of the night !
I have nothing to claim neither sound recording, nor technology, or an emotional bond with the place …
none of this, just what is left to listen, that the universe is in the night.—

V rednem februarskem terminu platforme RADAR predstavljamo in poslušamo delo ‘Ničesar ne smemo imeti za samoumevno’. Pogovarjali smo se z Markom Peljhanom, enim izmed avtorjev projekta.
WE SHOULD TAKE NOTHING FOR GRANTED – ON THE BUILDING OF AN ALERT AND KNOWLEDGEABLE CITIZENRY is an audio-visual installation and performance set of works that address current positions and politics of privacy, surveillance and safety of the global citizenry and their relationship to the military industrial complex. The title is based on a quote of US President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s famous Farewell Address of 1961 wherein he warns of the dangers of an unchecked military industrial complex1, government funding substituting for creative free thinking within higher education, and the extraction of the earth’s natural resources without consideration for the future. Clearly, the address is extremely relevant today in light of the Snowden2 and Klein3 massive surveillance revelations, creative thinking vs directed research as well as the continued resource extraction on a massive global scale. However, the speech is not a dark forecast for the future, but instead states that ‘…an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals…’ The project uses Eisenhower’s speech as the foundation for a set of works which address the central issue of the creating conditions for the development of an ‘alert and knowledgeable citizenry’.

A closed circuit formed by a loop that exploits the digital technology in VHS and a magnetic field, activated by the magnets of a powered speaker for the diffusion of audio. This system ensures the maintenance of an onanistic process that leads to constant and progressive disruption of the audio and video signal supported by the magnetic tape of the VHS. The residual audio, which gradually loses quality, is channeled into a mixing system and spread through the same audio speakers that degenerate the sound source itself.

A voice, which becomes sexually indefinite, feeblish and apparently drained by alienation, faces up its situation in the form of an acoustic interior monologue. The shallows, which are represented by the voice, coagulate as a sound compilation of radio play clichés. Abrasively and bulky parts are combined with elegant atmospheric parts. The capitulation will win at the end. For now. To be continued…

and a new year means a new batch of framework introduction is needed! i’ve only got one or two waiting in the wings, and i need new intros every month, so grad a recorder and get out there and record your framework intros!
some great sounds to start off our year – acoustic experiments with sine frequencies inside an abandoned cistern bybryan eubanks, wonderful metallic resonances by martin kay, rattles and sighs of ventilation by jonáš gruska, and concrete composition by natasha barratt, all preceded by a framework intro recorded for us in australia by regular contributor (and contributor to the latest framework:seasonal issue) jeremy hegge.

The Resonance Radio Orchestra was up in Scotland in August 2014 when Resonance104.4fm broadcast Remote Performances, live from Outlandia, Glen Nevis, in a collaboration between the radio station and artists London Fieldworks. This live radiophonic work is called Second Sketch for Ascent and Descent. It was written, arranged and produced by Ed Baxter, and features Ed Baxter (bass guitar), Tam Dean Burn (voice), Ewen Campbell (whistling), Miriam Iowerth (xylophone), Peter Lanceley (electric guitar, singing), Charlie Menzies (fiddle), and Michael Umney (piano). In November 2014 we asked eminent American country singer Bob Cheevers to read a script for a new work. At the end of that recording he improvised a fragmentary text which – since it fitted perfectly with the theme, unbeknownst to Bob – we’ve now combined with the other Remote Performances material as A Secret Postscript.keep looking »
