RADIA # 538: Connect and let go
von Reni Hofmüller (Radio Helsinki)
Connect and let go
Reni Hofmüller, 2015
Water molecules enter emphere connections among themselves, let go, connect again and let go… water also connects to a lot of other substances/elements. And lets go again.
And so, water can be huge, a river, a lake, an ocean, and also tiny, a drop, a particle of a cell. It can be peaceful and quiet, or wild, rough and destructive. It can connect with nutrients just the same as with poison. Some researchers assume that water has memory – which could explain homeopathy. Others dont call it memory because that would imply conciousness, but they speak of resonances. They explain the uniquness of each snowflake as a result of a combination of frequences that the water molecule was exposed to while freezing. In any case water sounds differently deqending on how much of it moves at the same time, and on which ground it moves, be that the creek bed, the bouncing rain drop, the junction of a river into a lake, the sound of the sea, or the cracking of melting ice in water, above or under ground.
For the Poolloop Festival Zürich 2015, Reni and Jogi Hofmüller went on a sound research trip through the water world of Zurich – inflows and drains, canal and dewatering systems, drinking water and sewage plant, usage of tab and bottled water, from the microscopically small segment of a rain puddle to the bubbling of the Limmat to the shallow waters of Zürichsee and into the air, where all water goes, attracted by the sun and then let go. Connect and let go.
In der zweiten Hälfte wiederholen wir die Willkommenssendung von Radio Helsinki im Radia Netzwerk aus dem Jahr 2010:
Radia #255: ahoy! ahoy!
Orange 94.0 featuring new radia member Radio Helsinki
Introductory show by Martin Pichler and Max Höfler.
“Ahoy! Ahoy!” these are the words that are considered to be the first words that were transmitted by telephone. The composition analyzes different communication systems and information flows. The piece was first performed on the internet via digital transmission. So the two performers acted as a sender and a receiver at the same time. Afterwards the tracks had been transformed into a special form to accommodate the communication structure of radio.
