Curated by Wave Farm: Climactic Climate

2015-04-01 – 2015-08-31

"Curated by Wave Farm: Climactic Climate" is a five-part series of new radio artworks on the theme of weather radio premiering on Kunstradio, and also airing on Wave Farm's WGXC-FM in 2015.

The commissioned broadcasts represent a broad spectrum of reflection on transmission in relation to natural environmental conditions. Participating artists harness weather as instrumentation in performance, celebrate the act of environmental observation as compositional score, or imagine and interpret the scientific impact radio transmission has on weather patterns and vice versa.

"Climactic Climate" features works by five international contemporary artists, each of whom approach and interpret conditions of natural radio distinctly.

Participating artists include Quintron (New Orleans, US); Mark Vernon (Glasgow, UK); Pauline Oliveros (New York, US); Anna Ialeggio (Los Angeles, US); and Zach Poff (New York, US).

Based in New York State, Wave Farm is a non-profit arts organization that celebrates creative and community use of media and the airwaves. Wave Farm programs support artists who engage the transmission spectrum, on the airwaves and through public events and include the Wave Farm Artist Residency Program, and international visiting artist program; and the Transmission Arts Archive, a living genealogy of artists' experiments with broadcast media and the airwaves. Wave Farm's WGXC-FM is a creative community radio station that commits over 60 hours a week to transmission art and experimental sound.

Amplitude

2015-04-17 – 2015-04-30

Columbia University School of the Arts Sound Arts MFA Spring Exhibition
ON VIEW: April 17 - April 30, 2015
OPENING RECEPTION: April 16, 2015 6-9PM
SPECIAL EVENT: 60x60 WAVE FARM MIX / AMPLITUDE LIVE April 30, 2015 5-9 p.m.

Curated by Wave Farm

Vibration and resonance, environmental sonification and transmission, kinetic and mechanical sound, and the connotation of cadence are the central ideas that move throughout Amplitude, an exhibition centered on the third floor gallery and distributed throughout Pioneer Works. Amplitude features new work by Columbia University first-year Sound Arts MFA students; and thesis projects by the newly established program’s first graduates, Carla Cisno and Nolan Lem.

Informed by the traditions of sculpture, video art, composition, and computer music, the works exhibited in Amplitude are unified by their essential consideration and foregrounding of sound.

In Carla Cisno's Eyes on the Horizon Perhaps, oscillation caused by transducers, as well as the vibration of viewers, activate an artificial site where dust matter transitions and transforms, triggered by the passage of time. Located in both of Pioneer Works' stairwells, the installations HiveMind (in the north stairwell) and Triadic Attractor (in the south) by Nolan Lem employ kinetic and responsive objects to fill these otherwise hollow spaces with dynamic and progressive sound.

Alice Emily Baird's sound and video work, A Sincere Apology, explores vocal timbre and its relationship to the perception of sincerity through choreographed performance and audience response. Cameron Fraser's Lost High Roller is installed both in the first-floor gallery of Pioneer Works and its adjacent garden. The work is a duet comprised of found field sounds played by Fraser’s interior musical chandelier, which are then transmitted back to the exterior space. In Somewhere Close, Chatori Shimizu uses contact microphones to reveal the living sounds embedded in natural materials, which are buried inside sculpted synthetic forms. Frank Spigner's Parallelism exposes and amplifies the mechanization of energy, electricity, and technology in a duality of physical and virtual space.

A formal or conceptual interest in sound unites these artists and the works featured. Likewise, it is this focus on sound that defines Columbia University's new interdisciplinary area of study, which leads to a Master of Fine Arts degree in Sound Arts awarded by the School of the Arts.

Special Event: April 30, 2015 5-9 p.m.

60x60 Wave Farm Mix features sixty sixty-second works, created with, for, and about radio and transmission. Included are works by Amplitude artists Cameron Fraser and Chatori Shimizu. Co-presented by Vox Novus and Wave Farm.

Amplitude Live is a sonic happening featuring performances and ecstatic utterances from artists in the Columbia School of the Arts Sound Arts program. Chatori Shimizu, Frank Spigner, Alice Emily Baird, Nolan Lem, and Cameron Fraser will each premiere new works, and friends of the program will also participate. Curated by Cameron Fraser.

Reveil 2015

2015-05-02 12:02am – 2015-05-03 1:00am

Wave Farm is pleased to co-present SoundCamp's second iteration of Reveil May 2-3, 2015. Broadcast live on Wave Farm's WGXC 90.7-FM, Reveil is a live 24-hour broadcast of the sounds of daybreak, relayed by audio streamers around the world.

Reveil starts in Rotherhithe near the Greenwich Meridian and travels West from one open microphone to the next, following the wave of sound that loops the earth with the rising sun, picking up audio feeds from forest cams, very low frequency receivers, deep ocean hydrophones, space radio stations, and a network of soundcamps and streamers, in a sequence lasting one earth day.

A series of outdoor listening events on International Dawn Chorus Day, linked by Reveil, soundcamps in the UK will be at: Stave Hill Ecological Park, London; Piel View House, Furness Peninsula, Cumbria; Dartington Hall, Totnes, Devon; Ulster Museum, Belfast. Soundcamps will also take place in Acra, NY; Chicago; Toronto; Fortore, Italy; Ljubljana,  Slovenia; Põlva County, Estonia.

Reveil 2015 is coordinated in London by soundCamp, in partnership with: Locus Sonus (France - open microphone network); Wave Farm WGXC 90.7FM (Acra, New York - primary mount point, US broadcast partner); Resonance FM (London - sponsor, UK broadcast partner); Stave Hill Ecological Park (London, SHED/TCV - hosting venue); CRiSAP (London, LCC/UAL - academic partner).

Saturday Morning Serial: Quintron's Weather For The Blind

2015-05-09 11:00am – 12:00pm

Created for Wave Farm's broadcast series "Climactic Climate," commissioned by Kunstradio - Radiokunst in Vienna, Weather For The Blind is an hour-long audio distillation of a day in the life of weather in the artist Quintron's hometown, New Orleans, Louisiana as translated by his environmentally interactive musical instrument Weather Warlock. Built by Quintron in New Orleans, Louisiana and Captiva, Florida, Weather Warlock is comprised of outdoor sensors, which translate changes in sunlight, wind speed, rainfall, temperature, and other natural elements, into electronic signals. "The brain" of Weather Warlock is a large analog drone synthesizer, which uses weather signals to modulate a bedrock E-major chord. Perhaps the most dramatic sounds in Weather For The Blind come from a small UV detector pointed directly at the sky. Quintron designed this "sky sensor" to respond to the radical changes in light that happen during sunrise and sunset. An overcast day, a very bright moon, or a lightning storm also dramatically affects this sensor, creating eerie warbling moans. Writes Quintron, "I find E-major to be a powerful yet soothing chord which can become quite hypnotic over long periods of time. My hope is that this weather music might produce the aural equivalent to the feeling that we get by staring into a fire or at the ocean--relaxed and placid, yet stimulated by subtle random flux. In the one-hour long composition, created for broadcast, I have recorded highlights of the Weather Warlock instrument doing its thing at different times of day and under different atmospheric conditions. I have provided brief voiceovers introducing each segment so that listeners will know the time of day and what the weather was like during each recording." The title "Weather For The Blind" is in reference to a circadian rhythm sleep disorder suffered by many sight impaired persons. Quintron's project-at-large is a constant and evolving convergence of sound and nature. Listeners can access a live stream of the Weather Warlock 24 hours a day at weatherforthelblind.org.

Saturday Morning Serial: Mark Vernon's Domestic Weather

2015-06-13 11:00am – 12:00pm

Created for Wave Farm's broadcast series "Climactic Climate," commissioned by Kunstradio - Radiokunst in Vienna, Writes Vernon, "Domestic Weather investigates both the affects of weather on radio transmission and conversely the affects of radio waves on weather through a number of different experiments and processes. Using household gadgets as analogies of various weather conditions, real audio recordings of weather are microbroadcast to small radios inside or in the vicinity of these devices with the resulting duet recorded--for example the sound of a tornado coming from inside a tumble dryer, heavy rain in the shower or howling winds alongside a hairdryer. Classic weather sound effects for live radio plays or film Foley will be recreated using only household items. Fake weather effects will be made by manipulating recordings of radio static. Interviews will be conducted with ham radio operators about the effects of weather and atmospheric conditions on their radio transmissions. Also featured will be examples of meteorological information conveyed through radio such as weather, shipping and aviation forecasts and transmissions intercepted from Radiosondes--small weather probes that are sent into the atmosphere by balloon. All of this will be interspersed with voices illustrating the ever popular British pastime of talking about the weather."

Saturday Morning Serial: Pauline Oliveros's Environmental Dialogue

2015-07-11 11:00am – 12:00pm

Created for Wave Farm's broadcast series "Climactic Climate," commissioned by Kunstradio - Radiokunst in Vienna. Writes Oliveros, "I like to listen to the weather - its songs and rhythms. Sometimes the sounds of weather join me in my performances. Naples 1981 on tour with Elaine Summers Dance and Film Co. We were performing a dance piece about the wind. We were in the Castle of the Egg on an outdoor plaza. I was playing my accordion with wind like passages for the dance. The wind started to rise - soon we began to feel particles of sand from the beach below, the intensity of the swirling waves of sand soon drove us all off stage and inside to safety. I was in Guelph Ontario for a solo performance with my accordion. During the day at my hotel I was watching the largest media event in history - The funeral of Princess Diana. In Ontario thousands of people gathered in a stadium to watch this event. That evening as a prelude to my concert I invited the audience to join me in an exploration of the energies of two extraordinary women - Princess Diana and Mother Theresa. Mother Theresa had also passed a couple of weeks prior to Princess Diana. We were in a large square Anglican Church with beautiful stained glass windows and a good resonance. I thought this would be an appropriate tribute to these to powerful women. Just as I explained my process of performance to the audience and was saying "I have to listen to everything all the time and include what I am hearing in my performance" there was the first low rumble of thunder. The audience sighed audibly and I began to play. There were sudden flashes of lightning that lit up. the stained glass windows in wonderful irregular rhythms. Thunder growled and rolled. I felt like I was playing with God's percussion and light show. Somewhere towards the middle of the performance two (not one but two) of the loudest thunder claps I ever heard sounded directly over the Church! As my forty-five minute performance began to end the storm tapered off and ended with me. The next day I read that not one but two tornadoes had blown through the town. What a magnificent duet. In the review of the concert the critic noted the storm as well. Maybe Princess Diana and Mother Theresa had spoken. A performance of my Environmental Dialogue took place with players from the Conservatorio di Musica Benedetto Marcello Venetzia on February 6, 2015 during a wind storm with twenty players from the Conservatorio and the Venice Ca' Foscari University. Players were mixed Jazz, classical instrumentalists and singers plus a young girl of eleven years playing toy piano under the direction of Paolo Zavagna of the Conservatorio and Ca' university Foscara under the direction of Daniele Goldoni. The beautiful old building that houses the Conservatorio became activated by the wind and the banging doors and windows became an engaging percussive part of the musical dialogue."

Saturday Morning Serial: Radio Relay

2015-07-18 11:00am – 12:00pm

DinahBird's "Radio Relay" is the story of a box, a leather box that is over eighty years old and has lived in three different countries, and on two different continents. It contains over fifty 78 rpm recordings of classical music and opera hits of the day. The box and its contents were inherited by the artist's grandmother who was born on the Gulf Islands, British Columbia, in 1910. She grew up on Salt Spring. She took the box with her when she left the island in 1925 and carried it to her various adult homes until her death in 2000. In September 2012 DinahBird retraced the box’s long journey and took the records back to the island where they were first played.

Radio Relay is a vinyl release consisting of the the box of 78's audio (24:00), and on the other side of the release, a series of locked groves. In 2015, the project will relay across the globe, passed from one radio station to the next.

DinahBird writes, "The scratches formed en route will become part of the piece, mirroring the journey my grandmother’s records made." Over twenty stations, including Wave Farm's WGXC-FM, will participate by receiving the record, broadcasting the work, making an entry into the enclosed log, and then mailing it to the next station. Wave Farm's WGXC-FM will receive "Radio Relay" from the station VOBB (Bonne Bay, Newfoundland, Canada) and following a July 18 broadcast on 90.7-FM, send the record on to CFRC (Kingston, Ontario, Canada).

Wave Farm Artist-in-Residence: Bernd Klug

2015-09-25 – 2015-10-04

The Wave Farm Residency Program is pleased to welcome Bernd Klug (Brooklyn, NY). His Transmissions and Frequency Spectra of a Radio Station is a site-specific sound work and installation centered around the electromagnetic residue that occurs when making radio.
