#685: 2019.07.28

july 18th was world listening day – in this edition we listen to a few of the recordings uploaded to the aporee soundmaps WLD2019 project, and we hear an introduction recorded on that day as well. meanwhile we finally had a chance to check out david rothenberg’s 2-disc release on gruenrekorder, nightingale cities, featuring his signature improvisations with wildlife – this time, as you might have guessed, with nightingales, in berlin and helsinki. we also heard a sample from absolute value of noise’s outdoor solar powered generative radio station, which “tries to recreate the sounds of life in its immediate environment – imitating the sounds of insects, birds, frogs, magnetic phenomena, the wind moving through the trees, rain falling, and waves on the ocean.” you can listen live (during canadian daylight hours) at the link below in the playlist. also some historical concrete composition by greek composer myrielle kyrou, a live performance recording by bana haffar, and a composition commissioned by this year’s radiophrenia festival by kate carr.

i think everything in this edition is available is available as a download, and some as physical releases as well – i guess we’re nearing the point where i don’t need to say that anymore, and soon enough it will be assumed that all releases are also available in virtual form. are we there already? mark vernon’s latest work is the most format-specific here, released on cassette, and composed from the sounds of found cassettes corroded by sea and sand at an abandoned holiday resort. kayaka’s virtual-only release, constructed from field recordings, harp, synth and spoken word, makes a good companion to mark’s rusty sounds, and sala’s ‘natural’ drone from a lithuanian forest, contributed to the aporee soundmaps, provides a soothing contrast. also along for the ride are a few more of biodiversita’s soundscapes, concrete compositions from sophie delafontaine, and a framework introduction recorded for us in sweden by longtime listener and contributor anders östberg.

#682: 2019.07.07 [aural tectonics]

The following broadcast contains a sequence of binaural ambiences culled from The Hague’s urban environment. The piece forms an interlinked trajectory from The Hague Central Station to the Scheveningen coast, creating a meandering aural section through the cities urban ambiences. Each zone along the trajectory is explored by an individual recordist reacting upon the inherent qualities of their site. The resulting work reveals not only a range of atmospheres but also a polyphony of auditory approaches to urban sounding. […]

great sounds this week as we began very slowly to dive into the pile of physical submissions that have arrived since our paternity break. we started with the sounds against humanity release by chelidon frame, pairing it with lovely field recording and synthesizer works by our neighbor from finland, marja ahti, and abstracted minimal drones by france jobin. we also heard a composition from emmanuel mieville constructed in part with recordings he made in a small river near my old home in normandy when he visited me there years ago (so i couldn’t not play that!), and we heard a few tracks from the eminently appropriate for our airwaves ’13 soundscapes’ compilation on the biodiversità label (we’ll listen to more of them over the next several shows). also, as always, our aporee soundmaps segment, with recent listener-chosen favorite contributions. and we began with a framework introduction also recorded for us in canada by france jobin.
