To be listened to on the same day, at exactly the same time, in the streets of Marseille and Brussels… where will we be in the end? Whether you are listeners in Marseille or Brussels, we invite you to experience a first:
Become an actor of radio controlled cinema by joining us with your radio, armed with headphones (a loan is also possible on the spot).

17:00 – ‘The Bing Selfish Radio Show’, performance narrative by Bing Selfish and Simon Hanley (GB)


Bing Selfish Radio Show (38’08”) [download]
The programme by Bing Selfish aired on Resonance FM is a fictional series relating the story of an emperor reigning over a planet caught up with democratic insurrections. As an artist who failed on the pop scene, Bing Selfish entered politics and won the European elections. After having abolished technology, with the aid of his guards, caught up with the democratic opponents, he expands his kingdom over the entire universe and installs his capital ‘Selfish City’ in Zurich where he faces popular forces by spreading hallucogenics in the water and his shouted imperial message on ‘Radio Democracy’ and ‘Radio Free Democracy’…

18:00 – ‘Sobralasolas! Act 1’, radiopera proposed by Jérôme Joy (F)


Sobralasolas! Acte 1 (extract 28’12”) [download]
With neither a pre-established script nor a story to tell, Sobralasolas! links the formlessness of language to a regime of touch by listening. Live mixing by Jérôme Joy of voice recordings and electronic sounds, the piece condenses and slows down listening situations. Inspired by James Joyce, the title ‘Sobralasolas!’ signifies something above the waves and states of flux. Gregory Whitehead in Seattle does a soliloquy on the most used terms in the media and on the anagrams of the word Sobralasolas; Caroline Bouissou deploys her dreams which turn our daily impressions into hallucinations; Dinabird tells her post-it thoughts; Kaffe Matthews records the variations linked to the colour yellow filtering into her environment; Björn Eriksson places microphones in his kitchen.

RADIOPHONIC 2007 PARTY:
‘COSMIC PIRATE FLAVA: UK Radio Pirate, Grime and other intergalactic renegades’

Station 1: DJ Wrongspeed, Radio Babble/Radio Babel
Starting point: the network of pirate radios of London; vital space of Grime. Simon Reynolds, amateur-inventor of this English tradition and propagator of Grime music, put us onto a fabulous collage brewing the complexity and creativity of this sounds-flux-words-music from some of London’s minority communities!


Presentation of Pirate Flava by Fabrizio Terranova (2’30”) [download]


Pirate Flava (46’23”) [download]
“Dj Wrongspeed was obsessed with the grime and UK garage pirates, but also with all the strange community radio stations you have in London (…) He constructed these really great collages out of this babble of opinion (some of it quite outrageous and not the kind of thing you would get on the mainstream radio stations, which follow a liberal consensus (…) all kinds of profane speech or what Foucault would call “forbidden popular knowledge”.”

Station 2: Joker: Stuck In The System
JOKER, a young producer, 18 years of age, made his mark on 2007 with his Kapsize with the singular sound. (EP on Earwax, the label of DJ Pinch). « He’s making next level instrumental grime, evoking memories of Detroit’s future.» « Remind you of a young Dizze Rascal? » Sounds originating from Starwars or Super Mario which land in a suburban street and vice versa… Exaltation… a composition for a video game filled with emotions.
