show #683: blues for aliens
Another attempt by the Dr Klangendum crew to put a finger on (or between) the buttons of Fiction and Sound (yes both with capital capitals). You might not believe us but we really were contacted by Aliens WHO MEAN GOOD but don’t ‘get’ our planet’s music much.
So we started to explain it to them, mainly how to arpeggiate the blues, as that is where it’s all at, isn’t it. And don’t underestimate the inner monologue with eyes closed.

DIE ZWEITE HÄLFTE
show #562: ‘Impure Waves’ by Stefano Giannotti
Impure Waves is a radio-piece for voice, harmonica, oscillators and mobile phones.
It is entirely born during the author’s residency at the Worm Foundation in November 2015.
The piece starts with a quotation of the Wikipedia definition of waves read by the author; successively, the text has been smashed by dozens and dozens of Google translations until it has been reduced at the single sentence Plate ten. A Christian family?
Words, landscapes, scretches recorded on a mobile phone interact with sounds produced by old modular synthesizers like ARP 2500, ARP 2600 and VCS3.
The piece proceeds as a series of abstract sound paintings, based on the idea that life is made of contamination, impure waves which at the end make us all happy (the very last picture proposes a sort of salterello based on a woman laughing).
Produced by Dr Klangendum for Worm & Concertzender
