Skærmbillede 2013-09-24 kl. 20.47.06
Torsdag den 26. september 2013 kl. 14.00-17.30, Tårnet, PB43, Prags Boulevard 43Siden radioens fødsel i 1920’erne har mange kunstnere opfattet radioen som et materiale i sig selv – ikke blot et kommunikationsapparat. Radiokunst er dog et marginaliseret område af kunstens historie, selvom den befolkes af ‘the usual suspects’ i sidste århundredes kulturhistorie: F.T. Marinetti, Samuel Beckett, John Cage og Karlheinz Stockhausen.

Dette seminar kaster lys på radio- og transmissionskunsten, og gennem både en akademisk og en performativ tilgang undersøges radioen som et kunstnerisk medium i en historisk, institutionel og teknologisk kontekst. Seminaret præsenterer desuden live performances afJørgen Teller (DK) and Pär Thörn (SE).

Seminaret er arrangeret i samarbejde med Seismograf/DMTSNYKradio og LARM Audio Research Archive.

Seminaret foregår på engelsk

KEYNOTE TALK: WIRELESS – SPACES & TECHNOLOGY OF ART by Kersten Glandien
Since the early days of radio, artists have seen its potential for artistic experimentation. Now times have changed and with them the technological platforms we still associate with ‘radio’. This talk will consider artistic practices in the extended radio domain and the new possibilities created for the way we interact and use spaces in the arts. It will explore the force field between virtual and real spaces, analogue and digital technologies.

THE VERSATILE ROLES OF THE RADIO by Sanne Krogh Groth
Traditionally, the public radio has been an important platform, both in terms of performing classical works and in the development of experimental music and sound art. The platform has not only been limited to a range of radio programs, but has also involved concerts, laboratories and advanced technological equipment. With a focus on the Swedish Radio and Swedish sound art in the 1960s and 1970s, this paper illustrates and discusses the radios versatile role that spans much broader than might expected.

Groth is MA in Musicology and Theatre studies (2003) with the thesis Sound Art – an art form in pictures and sound. She has worked freelance at the Museum of Contemporary Art (Roskilde, DK) 2001-2006, at the independent music-/theatre production company Holland House (Cph., DK) 2000-2006, as well as part-time lecturing at the Department of Musicology (Cph., DK) 2002-2006.

PERFORMANCE / Lucky Ringston by Jørgen Teller
The Danish experimental musician and composer Jørgen Teller (DK) has produced music for perfomances, theater, video, movies and a lot more in many years. In various bands, constellations and experiments he has expanded and broken down common notions of what music is. Under the alias Lucky Ringston Teller has developed his own unique technicolor sound based on the frequencies from shortwave radios. A sound where deep atmospheric noise and drone-like sound masses creates a more organic feel than electronic music is usually able to do. There are no samples, synthesizer or pre-programmed set-ups. Everything happens in the moment. Lucky Ringston has previously performed such places as Prøvehallen, Sofiebadet, Dansescenen, Lab, PLEX, Noise Jihad, Science’n’Cocktails at Byens Lys amongst others.
