On the occasion of Süden (South in German), an exhibition curated by Villa Romana [www.villaromana.org] that will be held at the Deutsche Bank KunstHalle in Berlin from August 26th to September 8th 2013
Radio Papesse invites you to Süden Radio
15-days of special broadcasting in which we will try to dwelve into many possible different sonic dimensions of the South: what is it? Is it just a matter of latitude?
Is it a phenomenon, is it a method, a cliché? Is it possible to define or to open up the geographical scale of the South? How do we look at it?
In the face of the multiplicity of borders, how can we approach it, without reducing the discourse to mere geographical terms? without reducing its complexity into a monolithic phenomenological entity through which and unlike to we define ourselves?
In collaboration with Saout Radio and Reboot.fm.
Call for soundworks
(deadline for submissions July, 25th)
We look for you, musicians, activists, composers and artists, to share your inspiring contribution on this arduous and slippery field of investigation. We need to test our medium and our means.
Be it acoustic experiments, songs, field recordings, philosophy, poetry, travel or geographical advice, South-notion related classical or electronic compositions, documentaries, interviews and chats ‘going south‘.
Be it music, playlists, a radio show or features, we are looking forward to listen to how the notion of South may be reflected in your own work and research.
We don’t ask for original soundworks, but recent and less recent works are all welcome.
What we have to offer is:
_the broadcast of a selection of contributions locally and on stream (radiopapesse.org, reboot.fm and Saout Radio) and via a listening station inside the Deutsche Bank KunstHalle in Berlin; selected Süden Radio broadcasts will be transmitted on the Radia network;
_an opportunity for publication (including short bio and links) on website: the selected productions will enter the Radio Papesse’s archive;
_one selected soundwork will be awarded € 200,00.
The selected work will be announced Sunday, September 1st during Süden Radio LIVE @ at 8PM on Reboot.fm, Berlin.
The selection will be up to a jury composed by Radio Papesse, Saout Radio and Villa Romana.
All decisions are final.
All the soundworks should be sumbitted via WeTransfer to firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline: July 25th 2013.

Who we are:
Radio Papesse [www.radiopapesse.org] places itself on the irregular border where art and sound converge. Not a magazine, nor an artistic project, rather it is a method of production we have been pursuing since 2006 and that is gaining strenght from its relational dimention. As Gregory Whitehead reads “Radio is mostly a set of relationships, an intricate triangulation of listener, ‘player’ and system”. We try to be in the middle of it.
Radio Papesse is a webradio streaming 24/7 and a free online sound archive growing day by day.
RP is based in Florence, Italy.
Saout Radio [www.saout-radio.com] is a webradio project inspired by the need of a research on contemporay artistic practices in relation to the sonic and radiophonic language.
It was founded in Maroc by artists Younes Baba-Ali and Anna Raimondo and it aims to promote the research and practice of sound art in Maghreb, Africa and Middle East.
Saout Radio is a project for the creation of transmission spaces and exchange on international artistic platforms. It supports different and hybrid forms of sound productions, from soundscaping to radio art from artistic documentaries to experimental music.
