Radiophrenia Redux #2 - 5th March 2017 (J Howe & D Bird)

Radiophrenia Redux #2 - 5th March 2017 (J Howe & D Bird)

A programme featuring highlights and commissions from Glasgow art radio station, Radiophrenia’s second season of broadcasts in 2016. This week: 'Sand Hills' by Glasgow based sound artist and composer Joe Howe. A quasi-operatic radiophonic work exploring ideas of magic, control and influence through the power of the recorded (and broadcasted) voice inspired by the short-lived German ‘Funkoper’ movement of the 1920’s and British storytelling from the same period. And 'What You See’ by Dinah Bird and Jean-Phillipe Renoult. A sound work inspired by aerial disappearances and crashes. In 2016 they came across the crash site of a WWII German Junker bomber plane brought down in Northern Finland in 1942. Over seventy years later remnants of the aircraft are clearly visible, wing parts, piping and rusty metal are fused and fossilised into the stony lunar landscape. The recordings in this piece were made almost entirely on that site. Radiophrenia is supported by Creative Scotland.
