What is Radio Art? What are we doing? Ben Vida, Felix Kubin, Goodiepal, Kenneth Goldsmith, Jon Leidecker, Tetsuo Kogawa, Chris Cutler and Roc Jiménez de Cisneros give their own answer to these ontological question. Link: http://rwm.macba.cat/en/extra/radio-as-art/capsula In June 2014 we participated in the international symposium 'Radio as Art - Concepts, Spaces, Practices: Radio Art between Media Reality and Art Reception', co-organised by the Centre for Artists’ Publications at the Weserburg Museum of Modern Art in Bremen and the Universities of Bremen and Cologne. True to RWM form, we asked some of our closest collaborators to answer two simple questions. You can listen to the contributions of Ben Vida, Felix Kubin, Goodiepal, Kenneth Goldsmith, Jon Leidecker, Tetsuo Kogawa, Chris Cutler and Roc Jiménez de Cisneros in this podcast. Enjoy!
Following with Felix Kubin’s line of research on the creative underground tape scene, in this brief podcast we revisit the origins of the format with former Philips employee Wim Langenhoff. Link: http://rwm.macba.cat/en/extra/wim-langenhoff/capsula As a former employee at Dutch electronics conglomerate Philips, Wim Langenhoff was involved in the development of the audio cassette. He was also a member of The New Electric Chamber Music Ensemble, an Eindhoven-based artists’ collective that became notorious in the region for their anarchic performances in the late sixties. The different sections of this interview are separated by two musical excerpts from the 2008 compilation 'The Spirit of Eindhoven'. The ensemble’s adventurous arsenal of instruments included kitchen utensils, workmen’s tools, radio and TV sets, motorbikes, EEG equipment, gramophones, discarded super-8 movies and various lighting effects. Philips had no problems with its employee’s double life: the company even financed some of Langenhoff’s performances. When the group eventually disbanded, he set up the Instituut voor Betaalbare Waanzin (Institute for Affordable Madness), which he still runs today. Enjoy!
