Live from Antwerp

EBU ARS ACUSTICA / ART’S BIRTHDAY PARTY 2007 – Antwerp.

“Ancient life was all silence. In the nineteenth century, with the invention of the machine, Noise was born. ”

words by Luigi Rusollo.

Can we make a same statement for radio ?

What if radio wasn’t invented 100 years ago ?

RADIO-NO-RADIO try’s to find answers, listen therefore to the silences between today’s radio stations.

We hear randomized long-, middle-, shortwave and fm silence samples on a interactive 16 channel speaker installation.

From 13.00 these radio silences sound in the public library DE DRIEHOEK Antwerp / Ekeren until it closes at 20.00 . Continuing we organize an ART’S BIRTHDAY party from 20.00 to 24.00

4 musicians and 1 actor improvise in the RADIO-NO-RADIO soundscape. The public is free to walk around. This performance becomes part of the EBU ARS ACUSTICA event ART’S BIRTHDAY 2007.

Participating:

AndrĂ© Goudbeek – bandoneon
Tom Hannes – voice
Peter Jaqcuemijn – double bass
