Workshop – 18 February 2013 (Potgieterzaal, University of Amsterdam)

The current project seeks to investigate the term “auditory memory”, which has been largely neglected in memory studies in favour of visually-oriented arts of memorization, with their long tradition within rhetoric (ars memorativa). A central concern is to what extent different forms of sound memorization have become relevant in science, art and media technology from the late-nineteenth century to the present. The project will especially focus on how sound has been stored and archived with the aid of different media technologies, material cultures and bodily techniques, and how each of these forms of auditory memories has generated a specific form of “cultural heritage of sound”.

Dirty Ear Forum focuses on contemporary sound culture and sonic practices as an expanded framework for rethinking knowledge structures and creative strategies, spatial demarcations and bodily identities, and for exploring modes of radical listening. 


Bringing together leading international artists and researchers, the Forum is developed through an intensive workshop and aims to integrate diverse sonic methodologies and strategies of listening. It is the intention of the workshop to consider the auditory as a platform by which to imagine routes in and around the intensities of global culture. To figure a politics of the senses and the sensible.

På trods af utallige rygter om radiomediets snarlige bortgang lever både radioen og radioforskningen i bedste velgående. Behovet for rent auditive medieformer synes ikke at forsvinde, snarere står lydmediernes bidrag til den moderne kultur stadigt skarpere. Radioverdener. Auditiv kultur, historie og arkiver ønsker at dække både spændvidden af og dybden i den aktuelle kulturhistoriske radioforskning og adresserer en række metodiske udfordringer i mødet med ufuldstændige, vanskeligt tilgængelige og sparsomt beskrevne, digitale lydarkiver.

The FIAT/IFTA World Conference 2013 in Dubai (October 25-28, 2013) will examine the vast potential of new technologies within the broadcast archive. It will bring together those who have still to embark on the journey of digitizing their archives with those, who are already well on their way to a fully digital collection. It will merge professional archive standards with innovation, and practical experience with academic research to foster personal and organisational growth within our community.

With this in mind, FIAT/IFTA is currently looking to assemble solo sessions, dual sessions, panel sessions, workshops, and conversations in a lineup of the most distinctive speakers in the field of broadcast archiving into an excellent show of expertise, innovation and experience.

A two day international symposium to open up and explore  the practice, art and craft of field recording through a series of panel presentations, listenings and screenings.

How field recordings are distributed to and heard by an audience;
Recording the unheard;
Mapping the urban;
Questioning the extended nature of the field in a digital networked landscape.

I dag offentligøgør LARM Radio de to første udsendelser i en serie om radiomageren Stephen Schwartz’ produktion.
Klik på billedet for at høre dem, eller læs mere nedenfor.

Med en stak båndspolebånd under armen troppede amerikaneren Stephen Schwartz i 1963 op hos radiofeature-manden Willy Reunert. Båndene havde han optaget i New Yorks ghetto, og det skulle blive til en feature. Stephen Schwartz ville lave radio, og nu skulle han overbevise Reunert om at han havde talentet til det.

I dag er Stephen Schwartz gået på pension fra DR med mere end halvanden hundrede såkaldt ”komplicerede ordudsendelser” bag sig. Fra debuten Sort Aftenvandring i New York og over prisbelønnede radiomontager som Det Indre Blik og Snigskytter har Schwartz arbejdet med at ”udvikle det radiofoniske udtryk” – som det hed i hans jobbeskrivelse.

Husker du? – Lydspor i Greve
Særudstilling om Greve fortalt i lydbilleder
15. januar – 31. marts

Greve er en forstad fyldt med fortællinger. I denne særudstilling har Hans Sydow og Jens Toyberg-Frandzen komponeret 10 lydværker, der via lydklip fra fortid og nutid beskriver egnens udvikling i det 20. århundrede. Hør bl.a. hvordan man talte om S-banen i 1890’erne, lyt til en svømmehals lydunivers og hør hvordan det lyder, når en fortælling om Askerød bliver fortalt gennem en babylonisk oversætter på google translate.

Sanselig oplevelse af en dansk forstad

„Sounds like Sputnik“ –
The typical sound of radio presentation from the listener’s perspective

Grit Böhme,
Seminar für Sprechwissenschaft und Phonetik
Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg, Germany

Radio listeners often recognize in a matter of seconds what station or, at least, what kind of format they have just tuned in to. Presenters seem to play an important role in creating the typical sound, the so-called channel identity, of a radio station. But what do listeners actually regard as being typical in a station’s presentation so that they will recognize it among competing stations? How would they describe their impression?
