The matter of the 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 >>

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 >>
