radia #375: DNT GVP by Neven Lochhead (CFRC)
“DNT GVP” is a composition by experimental musician and filmmaker Neven Lochhead, who is based out of Kingston, Ontario.
Like much of Neven’s recent work, DNT GVP concerns itself with abstraction and experience of space. Clean guitar tones are played while sounds of Pond Inlet, Nunavut, a small hamlet in the arctic, surface to the ears between rests. A slight echo is applied to the sounds of the town, immediately informing that the sound is an abstraction. A complete and pure representation is always abstracted by the appearance of added audio. The landscape fades in and out of conscious listening. Later in the piece, a recording from an Italian language tape fades in, first appearing as part of the landscape itself – a distant radio playing through someone’s kitchen window. The sound of the tape increases, thickens and engulfs the impossible soundscape.

Show 284: Semantik live @ Radio Sonic
This show is a live performance made during Radio Sonic, the 4 days long webradio that Radio Campus Bruxelles operated the previous week, to announce a sound art festival in Belgium called City Sonic. (Works and exhibitions are open until the 12th of september, in Mons. Come and visit !)
In the place we were working (Les anciens abattoirs), we met a sound artist working with devices that interrogate our relation to the body and territories. Audio Geolocalised derive & sound installation. He kept sounds he made and transformed to create this live performance one night. Here’s the copyleft result.
Member of the collectif APO33, he’s also performing as live dj with experimental breakcore set, under the name of Semantik.
