blablabor in the BACK ROOM of SONIC MATTER_radio

Suddenly they tune in, the radio artists of blablabor in their ominous back room. If you're lucky, you micht catch them…

The back room is furnished with a worn sofa, a coffee machine (but who is actually responsible for disposing of the coffee grounds?) and newspapers from the last few weeks. blablabor listens to the radio, reads coffee grounds and bundles up old newspapers. In between, it moderates the radio programme. Sets measures, determines, moderates, guides, directs. That's how the definition of moderation wants it. With blablabor, this results in a cheerful play with one's own actions. Moderation becomes the subject of poetry, sound and play.

jingles and signets

2021 SONIC MATTER_radio commissioned artists Annette Schmucki and Reto Friedmann of blablabor.

"jingles and signets" blablabor makes music out of the words sonic, matter and radio; small precise figures of word and sound. Jingles. Core and gestalt of SONIC MATTER_radio.

blablabor creates a collection of jingles and signets for SONIC MATTER_radio. These set themselves apart from the rest of SONIC MATTER_Radio's music program by being consistently based on language. The name 'SONIC MATTER_radio' serves as the linguistic basis; spoken, played or sung. Always in the air the recognizable same or similar sound. The small composed text shapes are distributed to the musicians of the blablembles, who translate them into sound, tone, rhythm, and send the recordings to blablabor. blablabor produces the jingles from the growing speech-musical material. Participating artists so far: Hartmut Andres, voice, blablabor, voice, Andrew Digby, trombone, Martin Lorenz, drum, Christoph Luchsinger, trumpet, Eva Nievergelt, voice, Lucas Rössner, bassoon, Daniel Studer, double bass, Stephan Wittwer, e-guitar.

Here you find more details about the individual jingles and signets
