Chris Cutler's PROBES #13 tracks the recovery and reassignment of ancient and folk instruments in unfamiliar contexts.


Recommended Posts

New podcast: Chris Cutler's PROBES #13 tracks the recovery and reassignment of ancient and folk instruments in unfamiliar contexts.
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 organisational practices ploughed through both disciplines, bringing parts of each onto shared terrain before rolling on to underpin a new aesthetics able to follow sound and its manipulations beyond the narrow confines of 'music'. This series tries analytically to trace and explain these developments, and to show how, and why, both musical and post-musical genres take the forms they do. PROBES #13 tracks the recovery and reassignment of ancient and folk instruments in unfamiliar contexts.

Enjoy!

      Hey folks.....
       
      Emerging out of the WATMM #massive #meetup back in Houston, Texas at Day for Night festival... myself, Kattin2, and WhitleyStriber are now doing a weekly hour-long radio show using the Discord app, in the original dfn channel, no less! (After all, this is how we met, too!)
       
      WhitleyStriber's awesome tech skills allow us three, as admin users, to play tracks in the  #snareup voice channel and talk about them.  Watmmers can listen live, comment in the lobby, and even contribute/join in the waffling if that suits the flow of the show... we can unmute you and allow you on to contribute in a free-flowing harmonious we-are-all-in-it-together vibe
       
      WE ARE THE DREAMERS RADIO SHOW
       
      WHAT:
      We waffle on about all things electronica/idm and play tracks - usually about 3 or 4 each based on the theme of the show. We have a theme every week.
      Unlike many other podcasts we play old stuff and well as new, live exerpts, long tracks, bootlegs etc. We mention gigs attended and upcoming too, new releases etc.. in "braindance news"
       
      WHERE:
      * www.snareup.com takes you to the discord lobby channel
      * Locate the discord voice-channel "radio-show" and join in to listen to the show
      * We will monitor the lobby channel chat for allowing interested listeners to contribute tracks or join in the chat.
      * we can unmute you if you want to add something  - but you will have to put a youtube/sc link in the lobby text channel so we as admins can queue it up
       
      WHEN:
      6pm Eastern Saturdays
      =
      11pm Greenwhich Mean Time

      New podcast: ON LISTENING #1. Thinking (through) the ear.

      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, beholding’. This programme explores philosophy’s seeming difficulty in grappling with listening and its counterpart – sound – as a powerful deconstructive means to cut through some of the philosophical certainties that underpin classical and modern Western thought. Can we conceive sounds as objects, or it would be more appropriate to consider them events? How far can the phenomenological approach to sound take us, and how much can we rely on it? And what about new materialisms? Are they more useful, in hermeneutic terms, when dealing with sound and listening? These are some of the issues addressed in part one of ON LISTENING.
       
      Timeline
      1:30 Salomé Voegelin - Listening as a tool to reconsider philosophical certainties and conventions.
      6:40 Peter Szendy - The auscultating subject, power and the fundamental disimetry in listening.
      20:50 Christoph Cox - Materialistic listening and the limits of a phenomenological approach to sound.
      31:24 Casey O'Callahan - Sounds are not objects but events.
      46:10 Salomé Voegelin - Possible world theory and listening.
      58:21 Seth Kim-Cohen - Listening as a form of writing and inscription. Anthropocentrism versus Anthropomorphism.
      1:09:19 Julian Henriques - Embodied listening as a dinamic mode of engagement with the world.

      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.

      Link: http://rwm.macba.cat/en/curatorial/probes16-2-chris-cutler/capsula
      Playlist: http://rwm.macba.cat/uploads/20160129/Probes16_2_eng.0.pdf

      The PROBES Auxiliaries collect materials related to each episode that try to give a broader – and more immediate – impression of the field. They are a scan, not a deep listening vehicle; an indication of what further investigation might uncover and, for that reason, most are edited snapshots of longer pieces. We have tried to light the corners as well as the central arena, and to not privilege so-called serious over so-called popular genres. In this new auxiliary, we wonder how far you can go with banjos, mandolins, balalaikas, jew’s harps and ensembles of folk instruments. And it’s pretty far.


      And here you can find the complete series of PROBES!

      Enjoy!
