Radiophrenia Redux - 26th March 2017

Radiophrenia Redux - 26th March 2017

Works commissioned by and broadcast at Radiophrenia, the arts radio station broadcasting from Glasgow's Centre for Contemporary Arts in August/September 2016. This week’s featured works are: ‘Arena On Energy On Tape’ by Stuart Gurden, part of a continuing exploration of a ‘distended’ abstraction rooted in everyday activities, it is a drifting, layered composition woven from field recordings, appropriated and altered sounds, discrete performance, and time stolen back from work. Referencing a found motivational tape, and the BBC2 arts strand and it’s Eno title music, the piece is a soup of binaural immediacy, approximate noise, elusive periodicy, and mangled guitar and natural forces, all filtered through saturated tape loops, and a cannibalised Leslie cabinet; ‘The Garden’, an absurdist radiophonic work by Katapulto with narration by Bruce McClure. Radiophrenia was supported by Creative Scotland.
