DIE ZWEITE HÄLFTE
radia# 279Grazer Walzer
A radia show from 2010
by Reni Hofmüller, Jogi Hofmüller, Katarina Petjovic and Borut Savski.
In November 1998, Reni and Jogi Hofmüller went to visit their friends,
then living in Ljubljana, Katarina Pejovic and Borut Savski.
As they had all been involved in different ways in radio making, sound
production, and experimenting, it was clear that - though there had
not been the plan beforehand - they would go to Radio Student, to the
Ministery of Experiment, and do precisely this: experiment.
In the case of the Grazer Walzer, the production idea was simple: we
went to the radio music archive, and took out several lps and cds, and
decided to play only the beginnings of songs. In radio history, very
often the intros of songs have not been aired, as the BPM (beats-per-minute)
did not fit the "overall sound of the station". So in an somehwat
"ausgleichende Gerechtigkeit" ("poetic justice") we exclusively played intros, and
combined them with lp-scretching, text created with the
apple-error-messaging system and some
additional sounds, produced with piezos and other microphones.
For radia, I compiled a 27minutes version, taken from the original 1 hour
