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

CHARLIE: BUSY DOING NOTHING – SLOW PIANO SHOW – FOR RADIO BOREDCAST
Long pieces, slowly evolving structures, non-Western musical traditions, primitivism, and minimalism. No sonatas. 

Charlie Lewis has been compiling music since he got a tape recorder at age eight, but it was not until his involvement with WFMU that he was able to foist his musical conglomerations on the public at large. He has been doing just that, both at that beacon of freeform radio and at other stations, and also for fashion shows and such, since 1996. He has played in various combos (http://bit.ly/tiWSoW), and written lots of music (http://bit.ly/tZEy2g), but has yet to outdo this work (http://bit.ly/vqiV0f).  Charlie worked in broadcast audio and in the music business for many years, but now does the more honest work of selling patent medicine. http://wfmu.org/playlists/CL

RADIO WEB MACBA PRESENTS SON[I]A 142: INTERVIEW WITH ANRI SALA
Ràdio Web MACBA is the Museu d'art contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA) online radio project. http://rwm.macba.cat

Son[i]a talks to Anri Sala about his work, the use of absence, and the relationship between ruptures and the continuum of history. http://rwm.macba.cat/en/sonia/sonia_anri_sala/capsula

'1395 Days without Red' is a cinematic project by Šejla Kamerić and Anri Sala in collaboration with Ari Benjamin Meyers. Conceived, developed and filmed collaboratively, it led to the production of two separate films, which were presented together for the first time at MACBA. The two films take viewers on a journey into the past from the perspective of the present, through the artists' daily routes in today's Sarajevo, which recreate what was once known as 'Sniper Alley'. Anri Sala's film was made in collaboration with Liria Begeja. In his films, photographs and installations, Anri Sala has developed a body of work in which the notions of space, time and sound become interlinked key elements approximating fragments of a more complex reality. Through a seemingly simple story, he places the viewer in a complex scenario from a social, political and historical point of view. In many of his works, sound is an essential structural element that requires a huge conceptual leap: he does not make sound tracks for his films; he makes sound track films that are increasingly musical, less narrative and extremely abstract.

FRI 9 MARCH: 3.56AM

TAPEWORM PRESENTS… PHILIP CORNER – FOR RADIO BOREDCAST
The Tapeworm is a cassette-only label. No barcodes. The cassette will never die! Long live the cassette! http://www.tapeworm.org.uk/

Philip Corner (b. 1933) is an American composer, musician and visual artist. His teachers include Henry Cowell and Olivier Messiaen. While on military duty in Korea in 1960-1961 he studied calligraphy with Ki-sung Kim and many of his works have calligraphic scores. A founder member of Fluxus, Corner has performed with George Maciunas, Dick Higgins, Yoko Ono and Nam June Paik. From 1967 to 1970 he taught the course in Experimental Composition at the New School for Social Research, which John Cage initiated in 1956. He was a member of Judson Dance Theater as both dancer and composer and has written scores for dance pieces by James Waring, Yvonne Rainer, Lucinda Childs and Elaine Summers among many others. He lives in Reggio nell’Emilia with his wife and performing partner, the dancer and choreographer Phoebe Neville. His wide-ranging output includes numerous works for gongs, bells, metal percussion and gamelan orchestra.

"Piano Work'd" explores the rich sonic possibilities afforded by the dismantling of a piano. Corner recorded the performance on 19 August 1983 at Archivio F. Conz, Verona, using a Sony Walkman Professional WM-D6 and a Sennheiser Kunstkopf microphone. The finished object that resulted from this action is the property of the Archivio F. Conz, Verona. The audio for this edition was remastered in 2011 by BJNilsen and released on cassette in an edition of 200 copies by The Tapeworm in January 2012.

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…


FRI 9 MARCH: 8.02AM

TRANSMUTEO: EPISODE 1 – ENTERING THE CRYSTAL CATHEDRAL – FOR RADIO BOREDCAST
Transmuteo is the audiovisual, multimedia project of Jonathan Dean, along with various collaborators, visual and musical. The project encompasses sound, live performance, video, visual art, gallery installation and experimental social networking. The sound of Transmuteo is inspired by new age music, especially the pioneering 1970s and 80s work of artists such as Iasos, Bearns & Dexter, Steve Halpern and Malcolm Cecil. New age beliefs - Dolphin Consciousness, The Melchizedek Method, crystal healing, Angelic Reiki - provide a conceptual basis for the project. The music utilizes samples, environmental sounds, found and prepared cassettes, effects pedals, synths and analog drone to create dense, textural, psychedelic music that revels in the shining artifice of the New Age.

For Radio Boredcast, Transmuteo has created four special one-hour broadcasts that collect meditative sounds from various musicians, along with exclusive pieces created by Transmuteo especially for the Boredcast. Along the way, you will hear guided meditations, channeled messages, interview excerpts, descriptions of advanced spiritual technologies, as well as the inspirational words of your host, one of the Atlantean Starseeds of Transmuteo.

The debut release for the project was released on July 15th of 2011, a cassette entitled Cymaglyphs on the Rotifer Cassettes label, based in Northern California. The small edition of the tape sold out in a week. February 2012 saw the release of Dreamsphere Megamix, a 90-minute cassette that utilizes binaural technology to induce a series of energetic awakenings in the listener. A special edition of the cassette is accompanied by a limited edition book containing digital art by Transmuteo, along with instructions for "dreaming awake" in the New New Age. The Atlantean Starseeds of Transmuteo are currently based in New Orleans.

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.

Daniela Cascella is a writer and curator based in London since 2009. Her research is focused on sound and on the way it seeps into other formats, most of all text. Her most recent projects explore and employ fictional tropes in writing criticism and descriptions of sound in fiction. She has recently finished writing her third book, En abÎme: a narrative across listening, reading and writing-as-landscape, as part of her research in the MFA Art Writing at Goldsmiths College that she completed in 2011. http://www.danielacascella.com

CODPASTE WITH PEOPLE LIKE US & ERGO PHIZMIZ: CAN’T TELL A WALTZ FROM A TANGO
I Can't Tell A Waltz From A Tango - http://www.wfmu.org/playlists/shows/25966 Can you? Vicki and Ergo offer a masterclass in the key of E Minor on all things that you can't dance to. Features the swinging sounds of Percy Faith, Charles Barlow & His Orchestra, Johann Strauss II and Ferrante & Teicher. "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. http://www.wfmu.org/playlists/CT


FRI 9 MARCH: 11.36AM

YOSHI WADA: OFF THE WALL – SIDE B


FRI 9 MARCH: 11.57AM

ERGO PHIZMIZ: 1000 YEAR MIX
"M: 1000 Year Mix" was composed between 2005-2006. The only Ergo Phizmiz composition created entirely out of samples (excluding works like "Cinemacollages", which he doesn't consider his own compositions in the same way), the work is a hunt for dialogues between the music of diverse times and cultures, from 1000-2000 AD. Not a "mix" in the conventional understanding of the word, samples are treated as raw material to be spliced, reshaped and assimilated, creating new melodies and progressions from tiny fragments of this raw material, exploring the interior of how music works, and how music transforms across geography and the passing of time.

Part One is an exploration of Tonality and Atonality in music. Part Two is on the subject of Noise and Ambience. Part Three is a play with the developments of Technology and their relation to music. Part Four is about the usage of the human voice. Part five about Rhythm. Part six is the final amalgamation, or, if you like, the party at the end.

"M: 1000 Year Mix" is not a piece that professes to give any clear answers to any overriding questions about music. It is, like all of Ergo Phizmiz's works, "playing" music, or "playing with music", exploring with a wink and a cheeky, perhaps slightly lascivious grin the internal mechanisms of how music works.

Like the majority of Ergo Phizmiz's works, it was generally ignored by the mainstream media, though not for the want of press-releases and promos! However, as has become habitual the forward thinking magnificence that is the blogosphere came through, and amongst a myriad other bloggings across the web, the piece was described in this way:

"Imagine a playlist of music spanning a complete millenium, mashed-up and masterfully mixed together so that the listener slides backward and forward through time, almost like a non-linear evolutionary chart of the sonic experience. Those who like a bit of experimentation in their music may find this composition as genius as I did. Kerouac had his "On the Road," Michaelangelo had his "David," and Phizmiz has his "M: 1000." Every artist has his masterpiece." - Jots From The Flipside, 2006

This was supposed to be the beginning of a projected long line of sample-driven works from Ergo. What happened instead was this piece wore out his capacity to create entirely sample based music, and he had no option but to return to other forms of composition.

FRI 9 MARCH: 2.53PM

GWILLY EDMONDEZ: MANTRA – FOR RADIO BOREDCAST
2 – MANTRA (Gwilly Edmondez – voice & acoustic bass guitar)

‘Mantra’ takes as its starting point the definition of mantra as an ‘energy-based sound,’ proposing, initially, that the riff in rock music can be defined as such. What transpires is an hour-long performance that selects a riff and repeats it over an extended period, using it to support a vocal that starts with a casual chanting of the ‘Om.’ The performance follows a developmental logic that is in keeping with the nature of Gwilly’s mode of production.

Gwilly Edmondez has been making improvised music, composed music, collage and noise, officially, since co-founding Radioactive Sparrow in Bridgend, South Wales in 1980. Since 2004, in civilian life he has taught at the School of Arts & Cultures at Newcastle University. He currently performs and records as a solo artist and in multiple/multiplying group outfits. New work can be followed at the following locations:

DO OR DIY WITH PEOPLE LIKE US: 1234 – PART 2 – FOR RADIO BOREDCAST
1234 is a show all about counting in music, sound art, poetry and lunacy

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

OTHER MINDS: ODE TO GRAVITY – INTERSPECIES MUSIC
For many years, Jim Nollman has explored the limits of human-animal communication. Along the way he has made some highly provocative tapes. In this program he talks with Charles Amirkhanian and introduces his recordings, including his now famous “Turkey Song”, in which human slide whistlers perform a call-and-response improvisation with the flock of gobblers at the Willy Bird Farm. Also heard is a recording of a colony of kangaroo rats and wild burros, made during a recent visit to Death Valley. The problem concludes with Jim and Charles taking calls from the audience and we hear a number of stories of human-animal duets, be it playing a harmonica with a dog or playing the bagpipes with a flock of geese. (September 17, 1975)

M.A. NUMMINEN SINGS WITTGENSTEIN
Mauri Antero Numminen was born in Somero on March 12, 1940. At the age of fourteen he became interested in jazz and used to listen to it played on the radio by the Voice of America. Around the same time he also started playing the drums. Viisi Vierasta Miestä ('Five Friendly Fellows') was M.A. Numminen's first own band. He not only listened to jazz, but was also interested in classical music, and later especially in modern concert music. Stockhausen, Arnold Schönberg and Edgar Varese were among his favourites, just to mention a few. Just like M.A. Numminen, the famous Finnish tango composer Unto Mononen also lived in Somero. Incidentally, M.A. Numminen was sometimes seen playing drums in Unto Mononen's orchestra. They played not only tango music but also contemporary hits as well as dance music in general.

In 1960 M.A. Numminen moved to Helsinki to study economics and political science at the University of Helsinki. Shortly afterwards he changed majors, and concentrated in sociology, philosophy, and linguistics instead. He also studied Finno-Ugric languages, folk poetry, Inuit and Bantu languages as well as astronomy. Numminen wanted to become a sociolinguist but things turned out differently: after eight years of studies he concluded that he was "nothing but a poor troubadour", after a popular Finnish tune. While at the university, Numminen studied the slang spoken in Helsinki. Slang, however, was not an acceptable subject of academic study at the time, and Numminen's interviews and tapes were left untouched for years. Only as late as in the 1990's Numminen was finally able to hand over his tapes to Prof. Heikki Paunonen, who was then compiling a new, extensive dictionary of slang. In his own thesis Numminen studied the dialect of Somerniemi.

ANDREW SHARPLEY: SLOW – FOR RADIO BOREDCAST
Ever been in a bar or a restroom with someone who won't stop talking? Logorrhea, I think they call it. A two hour monologue about slowness should be enough to put anyone to sleep: Andrew Sharpley obliges with a leisurely wander up and down the garden path by way of the hind legs of a donkey. You know where the door is.

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 2011 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.

CHARLES POWNE: INDIAN SOUNDSCAPES - RAJASTHAN
1. TEMPLE BELLS, JHUNJHUNU 
Recorded from window of hotel room. I was sick with a bad case of Delhi Belly and it was all I could manage to record, and it's not very interesting!
2. SUNSET AT PUSHKAR
A really magical coincidence of location, time, and sounds. I'm right in the middle of some great conversations, there are nice birds, the temple bells are echoing across the lake. I'm moving across the bridge so the soundscapes keeps evolving gradually. Ends with some ugly American voices, unfortunately....
3. WALKING INTO PUSHKAR
All the sounds, including loud passing cars, music, people. It's very dynamic.
4. WEDDING BAND, PUSHKAR
Music so terrible, it's beyond description, it's so wrong.
5. GUTTERAL VOICED MAN, PUSHKAR
Sounds like a Tuvan throat singer. Heard in the background towards the end of the song. Not very good recording, could have been much better! Lots of vehicles and disco music.
6. SUNSET AT PUSHKAR
Similar to track 2, but not as magical. Starts with people talking, bells ringing in background, birds, music. I go walking along the bridge to the other side of the lake. It ends at the temple with very loud bells.
7. EVENING TEMPLE BELLS, PUSHKAR
A continuation of track 6, but I had to turn the input level down because the volume was so high. After a while the bells stop and they sing for a while. It ends quietly.
8. RANDOM TUNINGS.
Arabic, with static.
9. WALKING IN UDAIPUR
Could be anywhere in the third world: a cacophony of motors and horns. Boring.
10. FROGS, JHODPUR
The people talking and the humming of airconditioners is as loud as the frogs. The last minute is better.
11. FROGS, JHODPUR
Frogs with fewer distracting sounds. Not overwhelmingly interesting.
