This Week's Free Lab Radio - For All the Sea the Land Remains

For All the Sea the Land Remains is a 44 minute long sound piece from Simon Coates.  The bespoke work for Free Lab Radio features field recordings from Dubai and Fujairah - both in the United Arab Emirates - Istanbul, Bangkok and Vientiane in Laos.

In addition to employing field recordings for this piece, Coates plays harmonica, keyboards and guitar alongside digitally-manufactured acousmatic sounds. For All the Sea the Land Remains samples the songs 'Shagufa' by Geeta Dutt (1953), 'Hum Aur Tum Aur Ye Khushi' by Surendra (from the 1940 film 'Alibaba') and 'Aahen Na Bharin Shikve Na Kiye' by Zeenat (1945). Another film that is samples is Parviz Kimiavi's 1970s film 'Oh, Protector of the Gazelle'. 

The English text at the start is read by UK performance artist Caroline Smith, and was written by Simon Coates.  The Arabic text towards the end is read by Sara Al Haddad and is a line from Jonny Town Mouse by Beatrix Potter...with vocal contributions by Denise Coates.

Free Lab Radio Podcast: Dance is a Neuroscience

A mix by Fari B of some of the most sonically intriguing dance tunes in this year's playlist, plus new Nov-Dec releases. Moving through genres and sub-genres from 8-bit to nu-disco to Neurostep, it's a selection to end 2015.

Dance is a marriage of the representational capacity of language and the rhythmicity of music. Even though dance is a fundamental form of human expression, neuroscientists have given it relatively little consideration. The past decade, however, researchers have conducted the first brain-imaging studies of both amateur and professional dancers. These investigations address such questions as:
How do dancers navigate though space?
How do they pace their steps?
How do people learn complex series of patterned movements?

"Mistrust the White House, come and get your fix"

Sometimes only heavy metal guitars will say it.

Sometime only metal guitars can say it.

Oh little sicky, seems to be the pain?
Got all these herbs, don't mean a f**ing thing
I am the little witch, with the magick tricks
Mistrust the white house, come and get your fix

It's not about the numbers, what you feel is real
Crystals, rays of light, the taste of orange peel...
Open the mind, change the mind, that's how we achieve
Can't hurt to try right?
It's what I believe!

Witch doctor...

I taste the green when you come here and complain
I give you cleanliness, while I make it rain
I'm a corpse eating vulture, who tells you how to feel
Don't trust the white coats, I'll make you a better deal

Put a needle in the cheek so turn the other one
Come back tomorrow, because we'll never get it done
Open the mind, change the mind, that's how we achieve!
Can't hurt to try right?
It's what I believe!

This Week's Free Lab Radio - Thea Farhadian

Broadcasts Saturday Oct 10th 11-midnight on 104.4FM, repeats Tuesdays 4am. Listen online.

Various recordings and music by composer and violinist Thea Farhadian (USA/Berlin). Collaborations with & KLAUS KÜRVERS: eXcavations, and Dean Santomieri, Redblue. 


Thea Farhadian violinist/composer, comes from the background of new contemporary music and has worked with a number of multi-disciplinary projects including composing music for video. Her solo work with the violin and interactive electronics integrates extended techniques with tonal structures and sound-based material. She has performed with Amy X Neuburg, Korhan Erel, Gerhard Uebele, Daniel Schorno, Daphna Naphtali, and S.F. Sound.

VOICES FROM BEHIND THE VEIL, 21:23, 2004 (English/Arabic)

Voices from Behind the Veil, integrates interviews of Egyptian women on the subject of the hijab (the various head and body coverings of Islamic women) into a multilingual sound collage of women's voices. By weaving women's opinions, stories, and discussions about the hijab together, Voices from Behind the Veil reveals the multifaceted opinions and emotions by using a variety of communication styles, some completed statements and other partially revealed dialogues, yielding a richness of diversity in sound and content. The primary impetus of this project is to shift the (western) gaze from stereotypical assumptions easily conjured by visual images of veiled women to an aural encounter where the women (both veiled and not veiled) speak for themselves. 

Material for this project was gathered in the summer or 2003, where Farhadian was studying Arabic music with Egypt’s well-known violinist, Alfred Gamil. The interviews are comprised of all Egyptian women who represent varied perspectives on veiling—two women are unveiled, one woman wears a more “Spanish” veil, another with a traditional hijab (head-covering that covers all of the hair), and one with. The participants were diverse with respect to their age, socio-economic class, and education. Subjects covered in the interviews include personal stories, historical and cultural phenomena, relationship to the body, other women, men, fashion, family, the western world, the workplace, Islam, and societal expectations. Behind the layered interviews, the streets in Cairo play out. 

Tattoos and Other Markings
46:00, In 4 sections, 2006-2008

"Tattoos and Other Markings" explores the experience of memory, weaving
together concepts of the old and the new, past and present; traditional
and processed sounds from Armenia and Egypt, spoken text, and machine
sounds.

All tracks composed and mixed by Thea Farhadian.

This Week's Free Lab Radio - Love Songs from Lebanon 1980s

This Week's Free Lab Radio - Endurance City

This week we explore minimal house, tech and synth-pop tracks tracks with reliably repetitive forms, and how these give people clubbers the confidence (and therefore the freedom) to dance?

Their mesmeric beats, by their very repetition become a kind of meditation, a small box in which the dancer moves shoulder to shoulder to a driving, seamless mix along with everyone else in a kind of flamboyantly stylish step class, where endurance rather than variety is part of the experience. Think of Techno Viking if he'd been an international corporate head hunter living in Dubai.

Here in Dubai, the dance scene is varied, but only within the parameters allowed by the brackets in which different social groups operate. The Ethiopians have their club, the Indians theirs, the Russians, the Singaporeans have theirs. The expat Europeans, Australians, South Africans and Americans mostly dance to chic, boutique music. That's the best way to encapsulate the genres that we're thinking of - clean, reliable, at first hearing possibly featureless, but after a while, a freedom appears within the framework.

This Week's Free Lab Radio - Vaporwave

Vaporwave, a mushy, so-cheesey-they-are-cool series of adapted samples of '80s & '90s TV infomercial and corporate muzak, made today. On this week's show we play both good old fashioned, hi-fidelity vaporwave and progressive (adapted and made on new hard and software) vaporwave.

Samples are might be pitch or tempo shifted but they are still recognisable. Reimagined 80s Microsoft advert with a whole load of obsessive compression and reverb, tracks are often very short...Vaporwave examines the vapidity of mass mainstream media and its promises, the short-sightedness of libidinous 90s yuppie culture and celebrates the perennial nature of advertising most of its producers suffered growing up....

Other similar genres are chillwave, grave-wave,
sea-punk, witch-house and of course one that the ResonanceFM performing collective explored quite a bit in the 2013-14 hauntology.... Vaporwave often crosses into genre we've looked at before on Free Lab Radio, such as Chiptune and Brostep.

Featured this week are: 
Shisa and Choongum (released on cassette)
Oneohtrix Point Never
Fortune 600
REVERB LITE
Greeneyed Meganekko
Space Arabica
VHS Logos and more....




Free Lab Radio - Live, with Tapes


As we met young producer Tapes this month, we've invited him to ResonanceFM studios to do a live thing...it might be tapes it might be vinyl. But it will be Tapes.

His new release is on vinyl with EM Records "No Broken Hearts on This Factory Floor", as marketed by Boomkat. Here are his previous ones, the first of which was in 2009 in which the tracks were transferred to tape, and back again for effect.

The record "No Broken Hearts..." comes with a printed 12" x 12" double-sided insert, a compendium of what Boomkat call Tapes' "frayed and wayward dub exploits on Japan's always wonderful EM Records ahead of his full debut LP with Honest Jon's."

We're just looking forward to hearing his version of Olivia Newton John in 'Phyzikal Dub', because I'm addicted to a very cool remix of that song ourselves....

This Week's Free Lab Radio - Experimental Housewife's Lament

Experimental Housewife's ambient-mix for Communikey Festival; a long-running cultural institution that promoted social, cultural and ecological innovation through creative process.

As the Festival came to an end this year Experimental Housewife created a lamentation for it’s end and as an ode to what is yet to come.

Featured: Segue, Charles Cohen, Neel’s modular abstractions and the flickering drones of Colorado-based artist Radere.

Broadcasts Saturday 11-midnight BST on 104.4FM and www.resonancefm.com/listen. Repeats Thursday 2-3am BST

"In advance of the 2015 Communikey Festival — which takes place April 16-19 month in Boulder, CO — we tapped Experimental Housewife to record a mix showcasing the more ambient-leaning portion of the festival programming.
This year’s edition of the Communikey Festival is set to be our last, as we prepare to retire the format in order to focus on the next stage of their creative evolution. It’s a bittersweet end for a long-running cultural institution that has served to promote social, cultural and ecological innovation through creative process. As such, Experimental Housewife intended for this mix to serve as a lamentation for the festival’s end and an ode to what is yet to come.
Bookended by a pair of tracks from the lauded Silent Season artist Segue, the mix traverses a wide range of styles, from Charles Cohen and Neel’s modular abstractions to the flickering drones of Colorado-based artist Radere and beyond. The end result is an evocative mix that is at turns friendly and creepy, calling to mind the very atmosphere of the Front Range region itself as it moves through its shadowy soundscapes.
For more information, please visit www.communikey.us. Festival passes and showcase tickets are available for purchase at communikey.strangertickets.com"

This Week's Free Lab Radio - Composing With Process

COMPOSING WITH PROCESS

PERSPECTIVES ON GENERATIVE AND SYSTEMS MUSIC 

Systems

Curated by Mark Fell and Joe Gilmore. Narrated by Connie Treanor.

Marcel Duchamp
A look at the use of formal systems in the composition and performance of musical works. It explains the diversity of approaches to musical systems using a range of technologies and processes.

The radio episode asks how we might distinguish systems based procedures in music to other musical activities, and makes reference to technological development and implementation, structural complexity, and relationships to other musical traditions. We compare three tape-based approaches to composition that explore sound as a temporal and spatial phenomenon and refer to theoretical positions offered by notable artists working in this field.

The composers Tim Perkis and John Bischoff suggest: '...for us the distinction between composing a new piece of music and building a new instrument is not clear cut: composing a piece of music for us IS building a new instrument.'

Shot in Teotihuacan Mexico, lispy, geeky lovable Otto Von Schirach gives another platform to his surf-Tetris boyhood fantasy videos replete with 80s graphics and space-scapes to match his breakcore sounds.

And in case you think the guy is musically a fraud check out his Boiler Room set in which the crowd is bouncing uncontrollably in the first 2 minutes...In case you think he's sane check it out too, Schirach is a self proclaimed "half Cuban Native Indian half German Anunnaki wolf". His music to him is "Miami bass booty drop/top-weirdo waltz."

Looping On....Mieux - Video for New Release 'Rush'

Ahead of their forthcoming album Are You Happy, ? - Mieux are happy looping away in this latest vid. The credits reveal a lot of it is the brainchild of one person. Props to him.  Of course the answer is that a lot of us aren't happy because we don't know how to make others happy, the first foundation stone of being happy at all.

So the next Q is: does making this album make Viennese band Mieux happy?  The answer lies in what effect is has on you.
Check out their older stuff. You may've heard Fishing before if you're an intelligent listener.

Tonight's Free Lab Radio: Sonic Traces From the Arab World

Street Musician in Beirut by Norient
Sonic Traces From the Arab World

This week on Free Lab Radio, we sample a limited vinyl record, full of noises from the Arab World. 

These include propaganda music by political groups and clans, psychedelic Arabic Rock from the late 1960s and 1970s, the noises of bombs and machine guns, the now ubiquitous synthesized Electro-Sha’bi from Cairo, old and rare shellac recordings, Death Metal, Rap, Electro-Acoustic Music, and Musique Concrète.

Collected and mixed by the Norient collective. The release comes via Discrepant in London. Previous broadcasts by us of Norient include Art Dubai 2013, for the radio commission Falgoosh Radio at Art Dubai.

Broadcasts Saturday 25th 11-midnight, repeats the following Thursday 2am GMT
