‘Les arythmiques’ (40’20”) [download]
« On the morning of May 29th 2003 when I woke up I couldn’t breathe anymore. They took me to the emergency room and there they told me I had a cardiac arrhythmia. They did an electro cardiogram for me and showed it to me. I thought that the arrhythmia weren’t very interesting, that I could do better. It is at that moment that I decided to make an electro acoustic composition which would be named Les Arythmiques… »

‘Riding Along With Ferrari’ by Chantal Dumas, 2006


Riding Along With Ferrari (34′) [download]
The experience of a journey is not only a question of geographic displacement. It is in fact a change of position of the spirit more than anything else. In this sense, the piece which is a tribute to the French composer who died in 2005. It functions as a roadmap through his work and is based on recordings of car noises connecting Ferrari’s soundscapes in the piece.

16:00 – ‘Before… After…’ conference-performance by Mario Gauthier (CA)


Avant… Après… (51’28”) [download]
The artist deconstructs the way in which commercial radios are marketed and formatted. There is a gap between the way in which radio is merchandising itself and its potential to be used in a different way. With the aid of portable radios, microphones, loudspeakers, contact microphones, sampler-synthesiser, found instruments, a tape recorder and a mixing console, the performance opens up ways for breaking with the habit that commercial radio has to make time and create a pretext for engendering context.

17:00 – ‘VERBISONORE: sole attempt at a public and personal destabilisation via flux’, performance by Michel Giroud, Ivann Franchi and Nicolas Horber (F)


Verbisonore (51’23”) [download]

This radiophonic dispatch by Michel Giroud explains the origins of man under the cover of a plausible justification. The live performance will be altered via the radiophonic medium. The proposal will be mixed in the following way: the knowledgeable discourse penetrates a private space in which the listeners will be recorded as they listen, of which the sound is subsequently retransmitted in the chapel so that the audience and the performer can react to it. This loop will be the object of a retransmission after the orator’s performance in order to place him at odds with his own discourse, augmented by the sounds in the chapel and by the reactions of the audience.

20:00 – ‘Interrupted Breathing Out’, performance by Phil Minton (GB)


Interrupted Breathing Out (18’47”) [download]
Phil Minton, the Welsh singer and poet of the throat and improvocaliser has for more than thirty years of cultivating his vocal delirium on stages in Europe and beyond…. This incontrovertible artist of improvised music makes the impossible, sing: the sounds of the mouth, the flux of the throat, the treasure of the tongue, the harmonics, and the disguised, scattered, extraordinary voice. This is sound poetry, these are songs of the body, the trance of secret words.

WarpzoneRadio (1h30’12”) [download]
The term warpzone comes from video games. It designates a secret passage between two worlds; between two levels of reality. We gain access to this zone via a special manipulation. It is a bit like stepping out of a set, passing backstage, in order to reappear in another part of the labyrinth. We sometimes emerge with superpowers, in a modified state of reality. Warpzone, as its name here perhaps refers to the physical theory of the curve of the universe. Here, we wish to deposit our warpzone within the confines of the verbal and the sound-based, in order to question the interactions between poetry and music on the radio. Nine artists from different horizons decide on an arbitrary or non-arbitrary division the day before and share the stage in the form of a chequer board between them, lit up alternately in threes.
To listen to Maja Jantar et Vincent Tholomé, Sebastian Dicenaire, Lucille Calmel with Tontenfest and f.a.g.s., Sun OK papi K.O. on SilenceRadio.org

22:15
‘e-scape’ is an initiative of the group Ars Acustica of l’Union Européenne de Radiodiffusion (UER), presided by the Swede Erik-Mikael Karlsson. It promotes the renewal of the soundscape as an artistic genre of which radio broadcasting is the privileged vector, and of which numerous European radios are the pioneers. ‘e-scape’ wishes to revisit the sound environment of our cities, our countryside or our homes in a current context, which allows young radio and sound artists to fully exploit the newly available digital and interactive techniques in order to depict our everyday in entirely new expressive forms. ‘e-scape’ is called to unfold like a series of pan-European radiophonic events supported by the UER, which provides its satellite network, and which Radiophonic 2007 will inaugurate on the initiative of André Defossez (Musiq 3, RTBF). The second event in this series will be broadcast from Vienna in 2008.

Performance by Els Viaene (B)

Performance (22’09”) [download]
Els Viaene began her career in documentary-making for national radio. The realistic treatment of sound has evolved into more abstract environments, using musicality and the natural rhythm of ambient and electronic sound that she animates according to the principle of collage. Working on these sound materials for performances but also for internet games, documentaries or architectural installations, she makes the listener travel in imaginary naturalistic and organic environments.

‘Condensation-precipitation’, sound piece by Dimitri Coppe (B), 2007, co-production acsr and Arsis-thesis.


Interview with Dimitri Coppe (3’01”) [download]


Condensation-Précipitation (20’23”) [download]
‘Condensation-Précipitation’ is a radiophonic proposal of missing elements: absent protagonists, lacunary narrative, dramatisation of the off-stage… The proposal is thus, in the image of a sensitive crystallisation, pictorial rather than descriptive or informative: it is the concentration of an intention by infusion and ahead of any instruction(s) for incarnating shapes and figures, rather than the representation of signs.

Performance by Martiens Go Home, Patrick Thinsy and Joncook (B)


Interview with Anton Aeki (Roland Wouters) (3’01”) [download]


Performance (49’05”) [download]
The duo (Benoît Deuxant and Roland Wouters) Martiens Go Home which improvises every week on Radio Campus and in the most unconventional places, has the habit of inviting musicians to improvise with them. Their laptop music based on field-recordings and sounds of broken electronic components produces soundscapes which tend towards the « anti-ambient ». For this performance, Joncook and Patrick Thinsy will infiltrate and contaminate their sounds with various objects and machines.
