*Duuu s’associe à Radiophrenia, la station de radio d’art éphémère du Center for Contemporary Arts de Glasgow.
Plusieurs fois dans l’année, pendant deux semaines, Radiophrenia diffuse en direct une exploration des tendances actuelles des arts du son et de la transmission.
Cette semaine *Duuu diffuse deux épisodes de Radiophrenia Redux 2020. Le deuxième épisode présente deux pièces :
“The Healer” by Cucina Povera
Cucina Povera is the solo project of Luxembourgish-Finnish musician Maria Rossi. It has been described as one of the most striking new voices from Glasgow’s underground music scene. Named after the Italian culinary concept which emphasises the use of a few simple ingredients, Cucina Povera conjures gorgeous, otherworldly songs about nourishment and precarity from layered vocals and electronics.
For Radiophrenia 2020, Rossi embarked on a new body of work, produced at the music studio WORM in Rotterdam. The theme once again riffs on a favourite: asceticism. Simplistic synthlines interweave with a text. The work has gathered momentum over months of creative stasis, and it seeks to pass a sentiment of strength-in-introspection onwards.
“As All the Heavens” by Gregory Whitehead
Composed and performed by Gregory Whitehead, with Aimée Anders as the Voice of the No Place.
Based on four lines from a poem by Emily Dickinson:
As all the Heavens were a Bell,
And Being, but an Ear,
And I, and Silence, some strange Race,
Wrecked, solitary, here -
Commissioned for Radiophrenia 2020 with the support of Creative Scotland.
