ANNA RAMOS AND ROC JIMENEZ DE CISNEROS – FOUR CONSECUTIVE STEPS TOWARDS MIDDLE WORLD – PART 2 – FOR RADIO BOREDCAST
These ultrasonic recordings of Vespertilionidae bat echolocation calls were made in the summer of 2011 using a CDB101R3 heterodyne stereo bat detector and a Tascam DR-100 digital recorder. The recordings were made in Parc de la Ciutadella in Barcelona.
Many overlapping pulse trains indicate groups of low flying bats feeding on insects – often just a few centimetres above head height. Those sections in which pulses do not overlap feature isolated bats flying in circles of about 15 meters in diameter. The frequency range of calls lies approximately between 35-60 KHz, and in some sections it is possible to hear other sound sources such as crickets, footsteps, people talking, or the fountain where the bats catch their prey.
The four shows in this series are based on the same recording, slowed down in each successive show in an attempt to reflect on the relativity of the concept of slowness and to try and transcend the anthropomorphic take on this subject. Middle World, a term coined by Richard Dawkins, is used to describe the realm between the microscopic world of quarks and atoms and the larger view of the universe at the galactic and universal level. This term is used as an explanation of oddity at both extreme levels of existence. http://alkualkualkualkualkualkualkualkualkualku.org

DO OR DIY WITH PEOPLE LIKE US: BROKEN MUSIC – PART 1 – FOR RADIO BOREDCAST
Broken Music is a 2 part series made specially for Radio Boredcast. Broken Music could mean a number of things - manipulation of the sound source (eg breaking or scratching a record or CD), cutting up or rearranging of the material - conceptually or literally, or treating or bending of the content so far that it becomes something else entirely.
DO or DIY is a freeform sound art radio show broadcast weekly by Vicki Bennett (People Like Us) on WFMU. The philosophy behind the show is simple. That within the realms of avant-garde and experimental sound art the goalposts defining "accessible" and "inaccessible" are constantly moving. As the radar rises and dips, fragments and shards of underground creations unearth, and popular culture and artist resonate, shifting shapes accordingly with one another in reflections of changing spotlights. Each show consists of collages made of sound works from the 20th and 21st century, often layered and looped many times over, resulting in an album type effect on each show. http://www.wfmu.org/peoplelikeus

Throughout the month, Radio Boredcast is making selections of themed music that fit the As Slow As Possible subject, either in an obvious or more ethereal way. Sacred Steel Heart is a collection of devotional and pedal steel guitar music, sometimes both at once, which in different ways feel elevational or psychedelic or sometimes employ compositional structures that are cyclical or trancelike.

DAVID SUISMAN: THE SLOWNESS OF MADAME DE T – FOR RADIO BOREDCAST
On the face of it, “The Slowness of Madame de T.” is a tale of seduction—a seduction all the more intense for being drawn out, “in all its splendid slowness.” On closer inspection, it is something more: a rumination on memory, on the intimate relationship between remembering and forgetting, slowness and haste. We keep some experiences with us, others are lost; the question here is not why this is so, but how. The text come Milan Kunera’s novel Slowness. Accompanying it are sounds by David Toop, Nino Rota, Helen Gurley Brown, Karen Dalton, Henry Flynt, Frederic Rzewski, Gasoline Stew and the Dump, The Stooges, Kinski, The Mebusas, Delia Derbyshire, Dudley Simpson, Brian Hodgson & David Vorhaus, Bernard Purdie, Julie London, Wizz Jones, Janet Cardiff, Åke Sandin, Slap Happy Humphrey, Michael Harrison, Blossom Dearie, Henry Jacobs, Scott Tuma, and Jacques Tati.
David Suisman is the author of Selling Sounds: The Commercial Revolution in American Music and associate editor of the Journal of Popular Music Studies. For several years, he hosted a freeform radio show called the Inner Ear Detour on WFMU, where he still occasionally DJs. He teaches history at the University of Delaware and lives in Philadelphia. http://www.wfmu.org/playlists/ie

OTHER MINDS: ODE TO GRAVITY – STEN HANSON
Charles Amirkhanian introduces the work of Sten Hanson, a writer turned sound poet who has been one of the most active composers of the Fylkingen group in Stockholm. The program includes an interview recorded on April 12, 1972 in Sweden, in which Hanson describes how he puts together his works and describes the computer studio for electronic music in Stockholm where he creates his sound poetry. Also heard are some of Hanson’s amusing voice pieces, which are both political and humorous. (from KPFA Folio) (July 2, 1975)

ANDREW SHARPLEY: RED HERRING – FOR RADIO BOREDCAST
A few years ago I discovered a backwater of the internet dedicated to the study of fish communication. A group of academics have, for the past forty or more years, dedicated their professional lives to understanding how fish communicate, and to classifying their language by sound types. This broadcast presents some digitally manipulated variations on these recordings, mainly cod. Those who are further interested should consult Rodney Rowntree's website at http://www.fishecology.org/soniferous/soniferous.htm
Andrew Sharpley is perhaps best known as 1/4 then 1/2 of UK sampling unit Stock Hausen and Walkman, formed in 1991, they achieved what they had been working towards in 2001 by splitting up. Relocating to France, Andrew then spent the next ten years undertaking commissions, or playing in bands, from animation festivals to jazz festivals to arts festivals in champagne cellars, by way of wi-fi broadcasts in cars and too many hours spent in vans. His return to the UK in 2O11 found him back where he started, and more productive for it. He presents these two broadcasts," slow" and " red herring", as evidence, although for what, is as yet unclear.

RADIO BOREDCAST PRESENTS… DUB SELECTION
Throughout the month, Radio Boredcast is making selections of themed music that fit the As Slow As Possible subject, either in an obvious or more ethereal way. Dub music, in the original definition (coming from reggae music) encapsulates slowness and spaciousness. Often the reverb and echo effects are very psychedelic, or there are layers of sound effects that turn it into a journey through sound… a soundscape, a very active experience for the imagination…

GORDON MONAHAN: ERRATUM ADDENDUM
8-channel sound installation for solo piano (continuous playback). 1st exhibition: Tonspur Passage, Museumsquartier, Vienna, October 26, 2008 - January 24, 2009, daily 10 am to 8 pm. This piece is based on Marcel Duchamp’s Erratum Musical, composed in 1913, considered to be the first piece of ‘chance music’, predating John Cage’s chance pieces by some 37 years. The original piece is scored for three voices and consists of three short sequences of single pitches.
I have taken the original score and extracted variations by applying the processes of inversion and retrograde – compositional techniques developed by the Second Viennese School for use in twelve tone composition. This results in several new note sequences, which are then transposed to all possible registers of the piano. These are recorded and then played back in random order, with some random deletions, and later processed into 8-channel audio distribution through a Max/MSP patch.

DANIELA CASCELLA: 31 DAYS, SLOW AND STILL
31 DAYS READING LE PONT MIRABEAU BY GUILLAUME APOLLINAIRE AT 8.30AM – FOR RADIO BOREDCAST
Le pont Mirabeau is a poem by Guillaume Apollinaire, published in his 1913 collection Alcools. In response to the theme and the structure of As Slow As Possible/Radio Boredcast, I chose to record myself reading Le pont Mirabeau at 8.30 in the morning for 31 days, anticipating and mirroring the duration of the broadcast in a different place and at a different time.
I chose this poem because of its slow flowing against its slowing into stillness – the flow of water, time and words in the stanzas against the circularity of time in the refrain. The adjective ‘slow’ appears still in the third stanza, the same one that contains ‘love’, ‘hope’, ‘violent’. The adjective ‘still’ appears slow in the refrain, as an impossibility. In the original French poem, ‘slow’ rhymes with ‘violent’ and ‘still I stay’ with ‘hours’.
The lack of punctuation throughout the poem calls not only for a flow of words, but also for different rhythms and meanings arising out of each reading. The readings always took place in my office, sometimes as dedicated recordings, sometimes while I was preparing to go out, sometimes while I was reading the paper or checking the news online. I learned the poem by heart, so sometimes the recordings mirror my small hesitations and gaps in recalling the verses. An old phonograph recording of Apollinaire reading the poem (from the Archives de Parole, Collection Phonothèque Nationale - Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris) supported some of the readings.

FELIX KUBIN: MOTHER IN THE FRIDGE – FOR RADIO BOREDCAST
A radio play without a script by Felix Kubin. "Mother in the Fridge" is based on a phone conversation between my mother and me. I recorded this call spontaneously in order to take revenge on the many words that I am carrying around with me.
My mother loves to talk and she loves to talk in English. As I knew of the Radio Boredcast project of my friend Vicki Bennett, I suddenly decided to make this a long conversation in English with a lot of twists and little stories and some experiments with my mobile phone. I started to place the phone (=my mother) in all kinds of different sonic environments in order to test the corresponding acoustics and see what it does to the imagination of the listener. This idea led to a playfully improvised radio drama about early reflections on late memories.
Most people who take a call from my mother don't get away with a talk under 40 minutes. That's why this radio play has a duration of 40 minutes. The remaining music of the one hour show contains improvisations by Fritz Ostermayer and me while preparing for a lecture on the Austrian anarchist Herbert Müller-Guttenbrunn in November 2010. (Felix Kubin, Hamburg, December 2011).
Felix Kubin is a composer, radio-playwright, curator and media artist. He began recording and performing experimental electronic pop music at the age of 12. In the 1990s he turned to electroacoustic noise music and formed “Klangkrieg” with Tim Buhre. From 1992-1994 he co-organised artistic political interventions with the Dada-communist Party KED and the “Liedertafel Margot Honecker” singing group, whose notorious actions received wide media coverage. In 1998 Kubin started to produce Futuristic pop music and launched the independent record label “Gagarin Records”. Over the past decade he has performed at eighty international music and media arts festivals including Sonar, Club Transmediale, Mutek, ISEA, Wien Modern and Ars Electronica. Since 2001, Kubin has been writing and producing radio plays for national radio stations WDR, BR, DR, SWF and Vienna’s ORF Kunstradio. http://www.felixkubin.com

TONY COULTER – FOR RADIO BOREDCAST
For me, the word “slowness” brings to mind a mood and state of being outside and above the normal rhythms of life – calmer; more profound; slightly sad, perhaps.

ED PINSENT: JAP MIX – FOR RADIO BOREDCAST
Almost all of these Japanese rock bands come from the late 1990s - early 2000s and were labelled as part of a "psych-garage" movement of some sort; some of them were represented on a compilation called The Night Gallery in Japan, and Chris Moon did much to represent their work on his Last Visible Dog label in America. Unlike their immediate predecessors (the speed-freak psychedelic bands like High Rise, Marble Sheep, White Heaven and others who appeared on the Tokyo Flashback compilations), these bands sang dirge-like songs and had incredibly slow drumming along with their twangy reverbed guitars. As such they seemed to me to have a lot in common with Les Rallizes Denudes, a much earlier band who had formed in 1967 and continued playing until 1996, so I have included here a 1977 song by this band which surfaced on a French bootleg CD set. Tsurubami don't quite fit the theme, being benign psychedelic hippie types and an offshoot project from Acid Mothers Temple.
Much as I love this music, I also find a lot of it incredibly slow and boring to listen to, and often wonder how the musicians managed to maintain the rigid discipline needed to keep each song at the correct pitch of inertness. I think Les Rallizes Denudes excelled at doing this, and although they are held in high regard by many listeners, I find their interminable music mostly miserable and insufferable. I thought it would be interesting to compress as much as possible of these mixed emotions into the required hour-long slot, and aimed to deliver a sublimely tedious listening experience. Each song was selected with that aesthetic in mind, and accordingly the Doodles track was edited slightly to remove the upbeat ending segment to their song.
The nine tracks are played more or less in the following order, but with overlaps; at any one time in the piece there will be at least two simultaneous playbacks. English translations of some titles are supplied in square brackets.

OTHER MINDS: TURKEY SONG
“Turkey Song” is a form of inter-species music, a joint communication between three human beings and three hundred tom (male) turkeys. The tape that you hear is an edited version of over five hours of tapes recorded at the Willy Bird Turkey Farm in the hills outside of Santa Rosa. The producer of this piece, Jim Nollman, has been experimenting with musical communication with various animals for many years. Besides turkeys, he has found that the bobwhite, the kangaroo rat, hummingbird, and the bullfrog all respond in definite patterns to certain types of human and instrumental sounds. But of all the animals, the most obviously receptive creature to audio stimulus is the turkey. Turkeys respond with a precise rhythmic gobble to any pitch above a certain register. The pitch is relative and is dependent upon the environmental noise already present. It thus becomes possible to devise extremely precise melodic and rhythmic patterns, and by accenting one note of the pattern by its loudness of pitch the turkey will always respond in time. We gather together to ask the lords blessing. A tape piece created for the express purpose of accompanying your Thanksgiving Dinner. Its instrumentation includes wooden and clay flutes improvising with a flock of turkeys. Thanks to Willy Bird Farms in Petaluma. (November 28, 1974)

CHEESE SNOB WENDY: FAST CHEESE IS FLAVORLESS – RADIO BOREDCAST
Cheese Is Slow
I think about cheese a lot. I wrote down my thoughts and read them slowly into a microphone while I was thinking about how much I like cheese and how happy I am that cheese is slow. I don't like to be rushed. Words are often better when accompanied by music, so I found some songs to help keep the theme going. I didn't really pick any songs specifically about cheese because I thought that would be far too obvious and kind of annoying.
Cheese Snob Wendy
I live in the United States. I am in my late-30s and I have been working with cheese since I was 21 years old. Within a few days of starting my first cheese job I knew I was in the right place. Learning and eating are two of my favorite things. I've done nearly all there is to do in the cheese profession except make cheese. Most of my experience has been selling cheese, teaching people about cheese, and writing about it. You know those little signs that are stuck into the cheese in the shop's display, with the name of the cheese, how much it costs, and a description of the cheese? Well, I write those descriptions. I like music, too, but I imagine that goes without saying because what kind of horrible person doesn't like music? http://www.cheesesnob.com

Features a medley of the best of this fine mulch of classical music with a disco beat, as well as some tangential visits to the world of amateur orchestras. Features Portsmouth Sinfonia, The Swingle Singers, John Oswald and Wendy Carlos, amongst others.
Hooked On Classics - http://www.wfmu.org/playlists/shows/25406
"Codpaste" was a weekly podcast series in which the two artists People Like Us and Ergo Phizmiz attempted to compose collage music from the very beginning, in a "work in progress" style, attempting to open up the creative process. The theory is that it is rare to see compositions made from the outset, and usually the audience are only invited in once the piece is finished, done and dusted. It could be that new light may be shed on the creation of art if the curtains are opened and the audience are given access to the raw, the imperfect and the wrong as well as the polished and the finished.
