Radio Kinesonus on May 18, 2003
Today's my performance had a simple structure with the sounds picked up by two contact microphones which were modulated with ring modulators and distortion effectors.
Such as scraping, tapping, scratching, hitting, dropping, swinging, pulling and etc..... .
The simpler the instruments that I use, the more I have to be conscious about my bodiness.
More subtle hand/finger/thumb/wrist/knuckle movements than hands cut the air / flip / fold / grip / hold / knead / offer / pass / pat / place / press / pull / pump / push / put / raise / reach / rub / rub / rub / shake / slam / slap / slide / spread / spread / squeeze / stick / stick / stroke / take hold / tap / throw / thrust / tuck / turn / turn / turn / twine / twine / twist / twist / waggle / wave / wring.
More subtle fields of airwaves than micro radio. Instead of communication, data transfer / reception and info-circulation. Resonance rather than communication. Toward an another side of technology.

The theme of this month's programme is the manipulation of spoken or sung words. The first 3 tracks I play
ed are all by "Dehabit" who are based Tampere, Finland. The first track, "Rakbeat
",was generated from folk songs that were recorded on one day at a market fair during the ANTI arts festival. The contributions were then digitally shredded and re-worked on a computer to create t
The following 2 tracks - "Hidden" and "Feline" were generated in a similar manner - but this time using fragments from
pop songs containing the word "love". MP3 files of these tracks are available from the "one love is all you need" link
The final track is a permutation poem that was recorded in 1960 by Brion Gysin. "Pistol Poem" follows the strict methodology of re-organising text or sound fragments repeatedly - so as to
exhaust all of the possible re-arrangements of the source data, which sometimes uncovers unexpected new meanings or str
uctures from the original material.

This time a PC joined to AKAI S20 and PALM in my performance. It
was like a "cakewalk" that I don't really understand. I was interested in how to
control it with a sort of noises and unexpected melodies by the real-time effec
ts and control opptions.

Simple bells and key-chain sounds off the top of my head.
