Show 651: Austrian Angst by Wiener Radia Kollektiv (Orange 94.0)

This week’s show is the Wiener Radia Kollektives journey into “Austrian Angst”. Listen to a group’s access to our spaces of Angst. And how a collective deals collectively with the collection of individual angst.

A show by the wiener radia kollektiv, Orange 94.0, in the 2017.

Tobias Dankl, Maria Herold,  Barbara Huber, Milada, Niklas, Barbara Kaiser, Lale Rodgarkia-Dara, Karl Schönswetter and Maria Sulzer.

The German language differentiates between fear (Furcht) and Angst (Angst)

Furcht is clearly directed, rooted in our consciences.

We know what we are afraid of, can name it, sometimes, we don’t dare to express it but it is not labeled with a shattering uncertainty.

The Austrian Angst is like the misty evening. Fog between the lines of conscience reception and anticipation. Blurring boundaries. We embody the present, we cannot flee escape from the present. The present is present. We cannot estimate the risks and vulnerability of the threat. We fight, freeze, focus, or flee based on the essence of our temper but between the foggy lines of this present a thought turns into a tree with little shiny fruits of terror.

The Austrian Angst is quiet, a solidification of our breath.  The moment turns into eternity; every scream is inverted into your body that suddenly is the object of angst itself. The outside threat is no longer separated from the inside we merge with this threat from the outside. We cannot do anything to avoid the immediate danger. We react and act in a quiet time-less, space-less sphere.

The picture is never complemented if you only look at one generation, so we borrow other generations, look at our children or argue with  our mothers and fathers. Rage is the soft variant of angst. It might seem aggressive and uncontrollable but in most cases is precludes the arousal of the real feeling. This is Austrian Angst and it means, it treats your body without any shifting, development.

The creation of experience, in fact, involves a degree of forgetting. Austrian Angst offers a huge traditional cake of sweet joyfulness. Every spoonful of this creamy tasteful cake prevents us from this process of forgetting. We detain our memory, sentence it for life. Free floating fear. Uncertainty itself becomes the object of our Angst. We can no longer set any references in time, space, lose the others, our body, our essence. And this angst is merging with desire. For some this means a joyful experience of life.

Die Tendenz in der unbelebten Welt zu immer größerer Unordnung, ist die Entropie
Eine meiner persönlichen  Ängste besteht darin,  den Kampf gegen die Entropie zu verlieren. In der belebten Welt sehe ich Angst, irgendwann den Kampf gegen das Kompostieren zu verlieren.

Transference and countertransference – the Austrian Angst is shiny and frosted at the same time. It is equipped with an insect’s antenna beyond our imagination. A gentle exploration of our manifold selfs, interspecies meetings a wishful exchange of perception, in fact an encounter of death.

Flow is the Antagonist of Austrian Angst. Flow shuts out this indescribable boredom of the Austrian existence. We cherish this fadesse, the tedium sticks our soul together. Our senses are integrated in the eternal conjunctive. The terror of our soul is the vital life others might have. We stare in envy. No single sign of shame, we are proud of this fadesse. Resonance with it.

You were listening to Austrian Angst. A show by the wiener radia kollektiv, Vienna 2017.

Show 649: The Trouble with Trees by Emily Townshend (CFRC)

Much like the main character Gwen, I too like to procrastinate. This entire piece was created in 24 hours.

The Trouble With Trees is a radio drama written and produced by storyranger for CFRC. The voice of Gwen was Emily Townshend. The voice of Eli was Michael McLaren. The music featured in this work was created by Disparition, storyranger, Our Last Night, Lindsey Stirling, Jackson Parodi, and HARBOR. Any resemblance to real events or persons, living or dead, is entirely coincidental.

Show 648: ‘She’ by Lola Ajima (Radio Campus Paris)

Image by Yukao Nagemi.

1. intro
2. Drama Queen
3. Slander/Backstabbing
4. Victim(self)blaming

« In a time where so much is thought, said and done on behalf of women’s rights you would think that we, as women would support each other even more. But this is not always the case. I was wondering, what it is, that we women do, that doesn’t help our case ?
Inspired by a Buddhist doctrine, which says that our karma is created by what we do, what we say and what we think, I was looking for stories, and I found them : the tale of one woman trying to control another woman’s feminine appearance for the sake of profit, the woman who is backstabbing another woman in her machinery of fear and jealousy, and the woman who’s blaming herself for being raped. It wasn’t easy to find them, no one wants to tell things like this. This is why I found it even more important to share them, not to point fingers, but to shed light and plead for forgiveness and reconciliation among women.
Desmond Tutu said: “Forgiving and being reconciled to our enemies or our loved ones are not about pretending that things are other than they are. It is not about patting one another on the back and turning a blind eye to the wrong. True reconciliation exposes the awfulness, the abuse, the hurt, the truth. It could even sometimes make things worse. It is a risky undertaking but in the end it is worthwhile, because in the end only an honest confrontation with reality can bring real healing. Superficial reconciliation can bring only superficial healing.”
I invite you now, dear listener, to be part of this reconciliation, a re-creation of this karma. While you listen, please forgive these women, and reflect upon how we can think, talk and act differently than them »

Thanks to Daphne Tsiouni, Coralie Maurin and Julia Stern for lending me their voices. Thanks to Sonia Rose Gouia for letting me use samples of her cello playing.

Lola Ajima is a musician, singer and composer from Denmark, currently living in France.

Show 647: Gas production by Vidar Martens for Radio Nova

Based on field recordings from gas production, the piece creates a comfortable yet eerie soundscape.


The monotonous sound of gas production has been described as hearing the rumbling, eternal sounds of the earths core. It is the sound of ancient matter transformed to energy, energy we easily and affordably use to maintain our comfortable western life styles. The soundscape allures the idea that everything is fine and well. At the same time, we know that maintaining the status quo is leading to fast and radical changes, with more devastating effects than we want to imagine.

Show 645: A journey through the sounds and words of Suden Radio (Radio Papesse)

This Radia Show is a special edit of the live transmission Radio Papesse presented at Savvy Funk as a carte blanche for Saout Africas.
Thanks to Saout Radio‘s invitation, on June 28th, 2017 we introduced a journey through the sounds and words of Süden Radio featuring fragments of works by Andrius Arutiunian, Valentina Bonizzi, Charo Calvo, Abdellah M. Hassak, Alyssa Moxley, Bartosz Panek, Polisonum and Pablo Sanz.

In our attempt to re-write new and unheard geographies of sound we invited artists and producers to reflect upon the Mediterranean discourse; the personal cartographies as a tool of re-appropriation of places and memories; the use and the circulation of audio archival materials in sound art and experimental audio production. This carte blanche traces some of the answers we got and opens our – the listeners – ears to unexpected latitudes.

Enjoy the listening!

Show 642: Larry Shipping In Der Abtei Und Saaleaue Bei Planena (1. Teil)

A remix of the Resonance Radio Orchestra work commissioned by Radio Revolten featuring Ed Baxter (concept, texts, electronics), Adam Bushell (percussion), Marie Anne Fliegel (speech), Peter Lanceley (electric guitar, singing), Kim Moore (viola), Joe Qiu (bassoon), James Taylor (vibraphone), Milo Thesiger-Meacham (electronics, harpsichord) and Chris Weaver (electronics).
The spoken part of the text is in German and an illustrated text can be found here. Imagine an x/y axis in which the pedantry of the words is in proportion to the dissolution of the actual broadcast and you are entering into the mind of this work, the last part of a sequence begun in Spring 2015 with Score for Open Heart Surgery on Charlie Watts and continued in 2015/16 with Heart Like a Duck. It is a long-winded meditation on the nature of memory, the violence of identity, the origin of writing, the pressure of locale, all the usual stuff… influenced by Elias Canetti, WG Sebald et al.
The lyrics to the songs, sung in English, are made up of fragments from 1920s’ and 1930s’ rural American blues – Charley Patton, Robert Johnson, Willie Brown, Kid Bailey, Mississippi John Hurt, Skip James etc – as was the case with The Death of Kodak (which drew solely on words from a single song by Blind Willie McTell, Travelin’ Blues).
So – a synthesis, one that is self-indulgent, portentous and entirely fugitive. Note: Larry Shipping is the belief of some One Direction fans that two of its members are in a secret gay relationship. In this context, the point is the perverse, subversive and abundantly creative mode of consumption that Larry Shipping entails, and the cordon sanitaire it forms. On first contemplating the area around Halle, the flow of the river in the image above was suggestive.
Recorded at Radiophrenia, Glasgow; Telegraph Hill Festival, London; and Radio Revolten, Halle, Spring 2016 to Spring 2017.
Made in Europe.
Resonance FM
