Open call: Kurt Weill Radio

There is an open call for radio art for the temporary radio station of the Kurt Weill Festival in Dessau, Germany in which Radia member Radio Corax is involved. The deadline is 14th February 2014 and the call can be found here.




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 suden@radiopapesse.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.

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!

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

short haul – Call for audio works

Interesting call from Germany’s national broadcaster. I can think of quite a number of Radia shows which would fit nicely into this environment, once they are chopped down to the required length… Here is the link: http://www.dradio.de/aktuell/1601309/

Deutschlandradio Kultur, a national public culture radio channel in Germany, is starting a new series. “Kurzstrecke” (short haul) is a joint project by the producers of Freispiel (experimental radio drama), Klangkunst (sound art), and Feature (documentary) on Deutschlandradio Kultur.
We support radio dramas that seek new forms of narration, sound art pieces that make noises speak, and artistic documentaries that bring multi-faceted stories to the radio. All this is being produced in the “classic” one-hour format, but also in shorter forms that are nimble enough to break fresh ground and leave stylistic boundaries behind. We will start presenting such audio miniatures in April 2012 on every last Monday of the month at 0:05 h CET (including one re-run a few days later). Therefore:

We are calling for innovative, timely, radiophonic audio pieces. We will select the most interesting submissions, and present them on our monthly late show “Kurzstrecke”.

The pieces should be:
– no longer than 20 minutes
– not yet broadcast on German public radio
– previously unreleased on CD
– we accept pieces made available for download as wav files (no aiff or mp3, please) or on CD
– the selected pieces will be bought for two broadcasts. All rights remain with the authors.
– foreign language pieces should be intelligible for German listeners without translation.

Please send your submissions to:
Deutschlandradio Kultur
Abt. Hörspiel / Wortproduktion
Hans-Rosenthal-Platz 1
10825 Berlin

or send the soundfiles via e-mail to:
Barbara Gerland / Freispiel / Radio Drama (barbara.gerland[at]dradio.de) or
Marcus Gammel / Klangkunst / Sound Art (marcus.gammel[at]dradio.de) or
Ingo Kottkamp / Feature / Documentary (ingo.kottkamp[at]dradio.de)

The Sound Bank – funding for audio piece from 3-15 mins – DEADLINE 5TH SEPT

The Sound Bank is a new initiative from In the Dark, From first-time features to uncompleted passion projects, wild experiments to those great pitches that didn’t quite fit the brief, the Sound Bank is here to help you realise your ideas and explore the world of story telling in sound.
 How does it work? The Sound Bank scheme is offering funding of between £500 and £1500 towards the production of new audio pieces of 3 to 15 minutes duration each. Recipients of the scheme will also be allocated a ‘mentor’ to help with the artistic, editorial and practical realisation of their idea. The finished works will feature at In The Dark events and online. In addition In the Dark offers to promote winning commissions, liaising with broadcasters, webhosts, festivals and competition-holders across the English-speaking world. An independent jury of radio enthusiasts chaired by Nina Garthwaite will award up to four grants. The scheme is open to all – first-time producers and students, migrants from other arts and media as well as experienced radio professionals seeking the opportunity to attempt something bold and adventurous.
 All proposals and showreels need to be submitted by Monday 5th September Results will be published on this site on Friday 30th September
Pieces will need to be completed by January 2012

TIK Art Radio Days – call for participation

COL-ME (Bratislava, Slovakia) invites radio makers, collectives and radio stations to take part in the making of a temporary radio station scheduled according to wind-time – our very own TIK Radio, to be transmitting over the TIK Radiodays from the 6th – 11th of September 2011.
TIK Radiodays is part of TimeInventorsKabinet, a project dealing with alternative time control systems, investigating into time relations within biological and circumstantial ecologies. Within the frame of this project wind-time was established, that we take as a base for measuring a new time.

Wind-time is time, that is not based on a regular intervall like a second is, but rather on the fact if wind blows or does not blow. Therefore it cannot be forseen, when the radioshow actually starts (starting time) and/or ends (length). With this event we would like to break the idea of time-based and time-related media and free it from its horrible boundaries of seconds, minutes and hours.
See the original concept here.

For contributors we have various approaches, how you can participate without screwing up your regular schedule(s) while a special unit in Bratislava is taking the adventorous approach from the 6th to the 11th of September.
How can you contribute?

Radio makers and collectives
Pre-prepare or do live one or more radioshows or code a patch using data from the wind-time clocks.

  • The adventurous approach: the start and/or lenght of your show will be announced by wind steered time
  • The cushioned approach: the show will start at a given (classical) time and last given length

The TIK project runs a video and sound archive – padma – storing content made during workshops and working meetings. You might submit even unfinished small pieces or sounds into Padma (to be used by other participants), or use existing sound files in your show.

Radio stations
Consider providing us with 3-30 minutes of your airtime (or more) to transmit shows done by collectives.

  • The adventurous approach: the start and/or duration of the TIK Radio slot will be defined by wind (and therefore involves unexpected changes in your radio schedule)
  • The cushioned approach: the start and/or duration of the TIK Radio slot has a fixed (classical) time

TIK Radio will be transmitting over internet and apart from streaming shows submitted and done live there will be a constant static stream for the whole duration of the project.
If you are interested to be part of the special unit in Bratislava and/or want to contribute in any other way or have more questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us!

Deadline for sumbissions: 15th of august 2011
