Dubbelradio – Call for Radio Art works to be split over two transmitters

Konsthall C and Mobile Radio present Dubbelradio, a 24 hour radio art festival on 95,3 and 101,1 FM in Stockholm starting at noon on 21st September 2013. Dubbelradio will be broadcast live from Konsthall C (part art space, part communal laundry) in the southern suburb of Hökarängen.

To celebrate the rare opportunity to transmit simultaneously on two city-wide FM frequencies we are looking for radio art works that function as multi-channel broadcasts. This unusual transmission format of two stereo channels presents an artistic challenge. We will encourage listeners to tune in on two radios or to interact with the programme by switching between the frequencies. Works submitted to the call should ideally support these modes of reception.

You are cordially invited to send a contribution to Dubbelradio, including a brief description of you and your radio piece for our announcements. Note: Due to the technical limitations of the internet uplink we cannot guarantee perfect synchronisation between the two FM frequencies.
Unfortunately we cannot offer any financial support due to the fact that this is a new project just finding its feet.

The deadline to send audio files is 15th September 2013.

Acceptable file formats are wav and mp3 (192kbps or higher). Please send two stereo files of the same length in one .zip file via https://www.wetransfer.com to Knut Aufermann at knut (at) mobile-radio (dot) net
Do not hesitate to pose any questions at the above address.

Looking forward to uncovering your ideas for twin-frequency works,

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.

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.

Reboot.fm [www.reboot.fm] : Free Artists Radio
Art, Discourse and Electronic Music from Berlin. 88.4 FM
Reboot.fm is an award winning artist run radio that broadcasts pop culture, politics, interviews, DJ sets, live concerts and experimental formats live from the House of World Cultures!

(deadline for submissions: JULY 5)

In the frame of the project ECOS we are launching the first of a
series of open calls for submission of contemporary sound art and
radio art works which connect to the themes of space and listening.
Artists are invited to apply with recent or new works. The first of
the series is programmed and coordinated by Paulo Raposo, sound artist
and radio producer.

“The ear knows this space. I can put the ear on the other side of the
window, projecting it great distances, holding it at a great distance
from the body. Lost, dissolved in the transparent air, fluctuating
with its nuances, sensible of its smallest comas, shivering at the
least derision, set free, mingled with the shocks of the world, I
exist.” (Michel Serres, Les cinq Sens)

The headquarters of the project and the radio studio is located in the
old medievel part of Lisbon giving the motto “How to get lost and
start listening”. The surroundings of Alfama, with its intrincate
labyrinth of narrow streets, secret passages and unforesseen
connections, promotes and enhances an experience of disorientation,
wandering, walking in circles and ultimately getting lost and

Despite the economical and political pressures on urban renewal – this
territory invites memory, history, reflection, bringing public and
private space to find a tensionless continuum in its constellation of
concatenated spaces that fluidly merge the interior and the exterior.
Escaping a linear narrative, it is an organic palimpsest where the
dispersed and reflected sounds ghostly recirculate and activate new
forms of awareness, different perceptual matrixes and spatial

This radio project aims to investigate topographies and geographies,
social and cultural narratives through poetic imagination, arising the
possibility for a deeper commitment with the landscape, the
architectural space and the community.

Open Call for Random Time Radio


Open Call for Random Time Radio
as part of the “Addicted2Random” Festival in Halle/Saale, Germany

Acoustic Mapping of the Coincidental

Throughout centuries of European musical tradition, coincidence and the coincidental did not play a role in composition – Händel, Bach and Beethoven were masters of systematic composition and artistic perfectionism. Yet contemporary musical creations of the avant garde commonly employ coincidence as a means of composition. It is the transitory nature of the moment and the allure of the unpredictable that allow musical dimensions expand to the infinite.
Together with international sound and radio artists, the festival Addicted2Random (A2R) examines through sound installation, radio art, exhibition and performance how the compositional style of classical European music and artistic work with coincidence can influence each other.

For the festival’s radio programme we are looking for radio art pieces.

The A2R festival is organized by free radio station Radio Corax. We will install a radio studio for three days (10-12 July 2013) in the birth house of Georg Friedrich Händel in Halle to broadcast live festival events.
For our all-day radio programme around these live events we are searching for radio art works that may touch on issues such as:
– computer generated music
– the European musical heritage
– ideas for new forms of radio
– the idea of the coincidental within art
– radio art based on randomness

You are cordially invited to send us a contribution to the festival’s “Random Time Radio“ programme, including a brief description of your radio piece for our announcements. All pieces will be considered and if necessary a selection made. Unfortunately we cannot offer any financial support.

The deadline to send audio files is 5th July 2013.

File formats accepted are wav and mp3 (192kbps or higher). Contact us if you want to send pd or max/msp patches. For files larger than 10MB please use services such as https://www.wetransfer.com
Please send your works to Georg Wellbrock: programm-a2r@radiocorax.de

iTunes Radio is not radio

After Apple’s announcement of iTunes Radio yesterday it becomes clear again that the term radio needs to be defended against large companies that want to make future generations believe that radio is just a jukebox packed with advertising and song purchase options. Despite using traditional radio terminology such as ‘tune in’ and ‘station’ it is clear that Apple is actually afraid of radio. Why else has it never incorporated FM receivers into any of their web-enabled devices despite years of user requests? FM radio is ‘dangerous’ in that people can listen to it without tracking, something that seems to become more and more rare these days. That’s why we have to defend the term radio and come up with a new word for what is offered by Apple et al. How about Cashio?

Introducing the Radia Relay

The Radia Relay is a meta-radio station, combining the best and most experimental live output of all Radia stations into a single internet stream. The idea of a controlled channel-hopping from one show to the next across all borders and languages emerged shortly after the founding of the network, initially for a satellite in European geostationary orbit. The ubiquity and reliability of web streaming and the ease of use of the open source software Airtime made it possible to create the Radia Relay today without any funding. The Radia Relay is to the Radia Network what a mix-tape is to a CD collection, a patchwork of radio art created anew every week. Click here to listen.

Radio art archive

Everyone interested in experimental sound and radio art can now dig in the amazing archive of sonosphere.org

The site hosts high quality radio productions from the archive of Deutschlandradio Kultur/Werkstatt and the French archive of the Phonurgia Nova Sound Art Competition. Every artist is introduced in a short bio. The site runs in English, German and French. Thanks to Felix Kubin for the heads up, and congratulations on the Hörspiel des Jahres prize he has been awarded for his work Orphée Mécanique.

Introducing Mobile Radio BSP – a temporary radio art station in São Paulo

Mobile Radio BSP is the contribution of Sarah Washington and Knut Aufermann to the 30th São Paulo art biennial. It is a temporary radio art station broadcasting from the 3rd September until the 9th December 2012 from a studio inside the Pavilhão Ciccillo Matarazzo in the Parque do Ibirapuera. Transmitting around the clock for fourteen weeks on FM at 87,5 MHz inside the exhibition hall and streaming online at mobile-radio.net & the Bienal website.

With Mobile Radio BSP we aim to disseminate radio art around the globe by way of introduction and interchange. In collaboration with the international radio art network Radia we bring the work of currently active European, North American and Australasian radio artists and stations to Brazil, and seek out the work of South American artists to celebrate and share. In the first two weeks of transmission more than 100 artists, musicians, thinkers and curators have contributed to the live programme, and connections to more than 40 radio stations around the world have been forged.

The schedule remains flexible to allow the vitality of radio to shine through in all its chaotic splendour; we are offering a multilingual out-pouring to confound, confuse, stimulate and delight – which facilitates the continuation of Mobile Radio’s mission to enliven the airwaves by shaking radio out of its tree.

For our live stream, schedule, news and radio archive feeds please visit http://mobile-radio.net

We hope you enjoy the idea, best regards        Sarah & Knut
