Turning towards sonic impressions
An impressionistic turntabling view onto Buenos Aires.
What is left if you want to make a soundscape-piece but find yourself in the overwhelming soundscape of a city that cannot be acoustically depicted by the collected footage? Wolfgang Fuchs solved this dissonance with another sound-tool placed in ephemera. He turned towards his turntables and drew a clear acoustic line of the constant “wrumm “of a somehow different megacity that seems to be bedded in low frequency clouds, unfolded and broken in distortion.
In 2015 Lale Rodgarkia-Dara and Veronika Mayer went on an electrocoustic-literature tour through Argentina. One of the outcomes was a spontaneous artist-exchange with a local gallery in Buenos Aires. Quickly a Sonic-Art- Residency was created and even quicker Wolfgang Fuchs convinced a small jury with his work. Wolfgang has been staying at PANAL 361 since the end of August and is involved in several artistic approaches. Some successful, some stressful, all different.

The residency is part of an exchange programme. In 2016 an Argentinean artist will be selected to take on a residency in Vienna with the focus on Sonic/Radio-Art.

“Where Have You Been?” by Maria Herold
This radio show will take you on a trip to various places in cities and countries. A canon-like conversation between city and country surrounded by field recordings from Austria (Vienna, Tirol), Italy (Ligura) and Switzerland (Valais) highlights the good and the bad sides of both. There are moments when they harmonize and fit seamlessly together, but sometimes they repel each other. You will listen to cows, people, waterfalls, birds, fire, cars, thunderstorms, trains and many other sounds.
Some field-recordings will be recognized from the very first listening but you will also hear recordings were you can´t be sure whether it is in a city or on the countryside. And maybe there will be the desire to be at one of those places. But whether you find yourself in a city or on the countryside, there will always be the longing for the countryside when you are staying in a city and the other way around.
Maria Herold studied Musicology and worked at TV-Music Departments. Part of the International Radio Network: Radia.fm in Vienna. Loves to make music and sound art: kakophoniedergedanken.tumblr.com
