RADIOPHONIC MONDAYS featuring sound and radio artists Celeste Oram (NZ), Anselm Caminada (CH), Micha Seidenberg (CH) and Valentina Pini (CH)
The spotlight is on the radio art of composer and sound artist Celeste Oram. Her art is manifold and multifaceted, drawing on sonic and social histories, micro-cultures and utopias. Song and speech, sounds of instruments and electronic objects animate her art, as do ephemeral, elusive feedback phenomena and radiophonic experiments.
Four works VERA WYSE MUNRO (a portray of a pioneering New Zealand ham radio broadcaster) FLYING DINOSAURS (a non-human, non-mammalian landscape sonification), QUESTIAN (an interview with a radio) and THE COOL OF THE DAY (an arrangement of Jean Ritchie’s song) will be aired intermingled with the work of three Swiss artists: In Anselm Caminadas RADIO RATIRAS a deserted gas station turns into a radio station airing a portrait of its alpin surroundings. Micha Seidenberg and Valentina Pini lend us their voices in OCD, a sonorous and multi-layered collage of vocal sounds, text fragments and wordplay.
