Jonathan Frigeri, lets his mind blow out in all directions about the mysteries of the ether. He plays with old radios, tapes, balloons and wires. He gets lost  over albatrosses and dedicates the viewer as a shaman in the role of radio in times of war and peace. An associative auditory trip. Read more >>

ÉPIPHANIE DE CONNEXION
C’est dans cet espace, du rien, entre le lieu de diffusion et le lieu de réception que cette histoire se formule, prend forme ou se déforme. Un espace intangible dans lequel on peut y accéder par l’ouïe, un lieu d’écoute acousmatique, d’absence et d’effacement, une négation depuis laquelle quelque chose d’autre peut émerger par l’incitation de l’imagerie sonore. On peut situer ces divagations de pensée sous une forme hybride et, proche de l’idée d’une excursion désorientée dans les territoires spectraux. Read more >>

The matter of radio

lecture

The product of this research is a performance / conference in which ideas are shared with the public. We can situate these divagations of thought, in a hybrid form, halfway between the fantastic tale, a scientific experiment, a history of ideas around the radio medium and a gradual transition to the occult. A ritual is set up to give the listeners an unprecedented experience of hypnosis, magic, witchcraft, and go on to progress towards a more collective form of communion. Read more >>

The sounds I am listening to every night at first appear to be human voices conversing back and forth in a language I cannot understand. I find it difficult to imagine that I am actually hearing real voices from people not of this planet. There must be a more simple explanation that has so far eluded me.” – Nikola Tesla 1918 Read more >>

Music Hole

GAME MUSIC – AN HOMAGE TO ROAMING AND SURPRISE
The music we usually compose has more often than not been solely based on the traditional narrative structure of beginning middle and end, the notion that the performance is going to be heard in exactly the order in which it was composed. In Music Hole the linearity is replaced with interactivity. Meaning that as a listener you can chose the order, the form or even influence the structure of the music. Read more >>
