  1. New podcast: ON LISTENING #1. Thinking (through) the ear. Curated by Arnau Horta. Music by Annie Goh. With conversations with Salomé Voegelin, Peter Szendy, Christoph Cox, Casey O'Callahan, Seth Kim-Cohen and Julian Henriques Link: http://rwm.macba.cat/en/research/on-listening-1/capsula To what extent is listening ‘thinkable’? Philosophical inquiry, deeply rooted in the visual regime, seems to struggle when it comes to theoretically coming to grips with listening and sonic phenomena. It is, after all, no coincidence that the Greek term ‘theoria’ (θεωρία) means ‘looking at, viewing, behol
  2. New #podcast/mix: PROBES #16.2. Auxiliaries. Chris Cutler wonders how far you can go with banjos, mandolins, balalaikas, jew’s harps and ensembles of folk instruments. And it’s pretty far.

They are a scan, not a deep listening vehicle; an indication of what further investigation might uncover and, for that reason,
  3. New podcast: PROBES #15, on experimental uses of the more intractable folk instruments. Curated by Chris Cutler Link: http://rwm.macba.cat/en/curatorial/probes-15-1-chris-cutler/capsula In the late nineteenth century two facts conspired to change the face of music: the collapse of common practice tonality (which overturned the certainties underpinning the world of art music), and the invention of a revolutionary new form of memory, sound recording (which redefined and greatly empowered the world of popular music). A tidal wave of probes and experiments into new musical resources and new o
  4. New podcast: ON LISTENING. Research process: Jacob Kirkegaard Link: http://rwm.macba.cat/en/extra/jacob-kirkegaard/capsula In 2014, we interviewed Danish artist Jacob Kirkegaard as part of a research project entitled ON LISTENING. This podcast takes us back to that conversation. With projects on the deserts of Oman, the Chernobyl 'zone of alienation', Arctic calving glaciers and the tones generated by the human inner ear itself, mapping out Jacob Kirkegaard's artistic practice is no easy task. He allows himself to be led by wonder, focusing on hidden or unheard layers of sound and son

  6. New podcast: Conversartion with Alvin Lucier Link. http://rwm.macba.cat/en/sonia/alvin-lucier/capsula A key figure in post-Cage experimental music, Lucier is one of a kind, a composer who, as James Tenney says, makes his fellow musicians find themselves “having to revise our basic (and often unconscious) assumptions – our self-evident axioms about music.” Driven by a curiosity to understand “how things work” (an innocent and unprejudiced curiosity that Tenney compares to that of a child), Lucier always seems ready to disappear within sound. It is as if his fascination with the sound ph
  7. In PROBES #14 Chris Cutler take a detour to show how a collision of folk mechanisms, social upheaval, sound recording and electrification underpinned the growth of a new polyglot musical language, and a new aesthetic constituency. Link: http://rwm.macba.cat/en/curatorial/probes-14-1-chris-cutler/capsula Transcript: http://rwm.macba.cat/uploads/20150909/14probes_transcript_eng.pdf Enjoy!
  8. New podcast: Angela Dimitrakaki talks about the new feminist critique, the limits of democracy, the wiles of post-capitalism, and the ambivalence of the commons. We also touch on the notions of radical curating and collaborative practices. Featuring music commissioned to AGF and mixed by Lucrecia Dalt.

  9. New podcast: INTERRUPTIONS #20. The Little People In The Radio present... By Anna Friz link: http://rwm.macba.cat/en/curatorial/anna-friz-interruptions/capsula text+ playlist: http://rwm.macba.cat/uploads/20151110/20Interruptions_eng.pdf A show riffing on the anachronistic childhood fantasy of the little people who live inside the radio and perform all the voices and sounds heard. Turn on the radio, the little people begin to talk; change the station, and they change their voices. Most basically an exploration of the uses and misuses of the trope of the radio host, taken from archival mater

Link: http://rwm.macba.cat/en/sonia/john-chowning-/capsula As a man of many, interconnected facets, John Chowning has played a leading role in several chapters of the history of electronic music.
