Radio Implicancies

O N E

Material of the week

At the end of the introductory first session we were annotating a recording. The recording was a reading of "She Unames Them" by Ursula Le Guin.

Annotation:
~sliding into their anonimity
~return to the donor
~gave back their names to whom they belonged
~trailed behind them like tin cans tied to their tales
~the hunter could not be told from the hunted
~my words must now be as slow as tentative as the steps I took going to the path away from the house

Reaction:
I have a name
I am present
I am not seen
I have been muted
I am not here
I am in the background
Unheard
Unseen
Unoticed
But named

Work created for broadcast

For the first broadcast I stayed with the text of Ursula Le Guin and focused on reinterpreting it. I played with repetition and also used it as a way to learn basics on using Audacity as a tool.

Material of the week

This week I was together with Nami in charge of the broadcasting so we had to make a website and also broadcast on thursday.
I wanted to develop from the last session who was not technically a live broadcast and I wanted this time to learn how to do a live broadcast much like a radio. I learned to use BUTT to stream live from my computer and from that set up a live sound on an html so people could as soon as they opened the page listen to what I was streaming from my computer.
After gathering all the material from the class we created a schedule with some live performance and pre recorded sounds that would be streamed.
For mic input I used a jisti call because when using butt you could only use one sound input which was the sound in computer and so we couldn't plug in a microphone, so this was the way to solve that and still be able to broadcast live talking input.

Material of the week

Started learning to use Sonic Pi to create sound, which is a code-based music creation and performance tool. So after the previous week where I was caretaker I decided that this week I would be more free and experimental using this tool.

Materials

Each week I created a web based soundboard on a certain theme and recorded a work from the soundboards I created. I also worked with ascii animation and other various elements that brought the webpages to life such as gif and web page never ending ambient sound.
This was all inspired by https://driveandlisten.herokuapp.com/ which is a beautiful website that takes you on a drive and let's you listen to the live local radios.
