radia #371: Windtime
by Time Bending Clock Radio - radio x, Frankfurt
"Betrachten Sie einmal ein ganz populäres Diagramm, eine Wetterkarte. Die Linie, die ich mit meinem Finger nachziehe, zeigt die Bewegung des Barometers. [...] Das Quecksilber hat doch offenbar die Linie in keiner der landläufigen Richtungen des Raumes gezogen? Aber ganz zweifellos zog es eine Linie, und diese Linie hat sich, so müssen wir schliessen, längs der Zeitdimensionen bewegt."
[Egon Friedell: Die Rückkehr der Zeitmaschine. Zürich: Diogenes, 1974, pp. 13/14]
clocking windtime. not to draw a line along the dimensions of time. but to tear a hole into the latter.
listening closely to the ticks and tacks of winds and weathers, thunders and lightnings of bells and chimes, the whispers of clocks. timelines dissolving in the rain.
* quot. Egon Friedell: Die Rückkehr der Zeitmaschine. Zürich: Diogenes, 1974, pp. 13/14. [roughly transl.: "Just take a look at a really popular diagram, a weather map. The line I am following with my finger demonstrates the barometer's movement. [...] Obviously, the quicksilver has not drawn a linie according to the general dimensions of space. Yet it has drawn a line - and thus, we have to conclude, this line has moved along the dimensions of time."]
WINDTIME is a production of TIME BENDING CLOCK RADIO.
TIME BENDING CLOCK RADIO is radio on time.
since summer 2010, TIME BENDING CLOCK RADIO is one of the active mechanisms of the TIME BENDING CLOCK, a research project and tool looking at alternate theories and practices of measuring time, operating at the intersections of art, media, cultural history and the history of science.
find out more about the TIME BENDING CLOCK by visiting the TIME BENDING CLOCK WORK.
Like TIME BENDING CLOCK, TIME BENDING CLOCK RADIO is part of the TIME INVENTORS' KABINET (TIK).
TIME INVENTORS’ KABINET (TIK)
is a collaborative artistic research project at the intersections of ecology, art, and media,
taking an ecological approach to observing patterns in time and time control systems.
find out more about TIK at www.timeinventorskabinet.org
this TIME BENDING CLOCK RADIO production is based on fieldrecordings by the following artist and artists and sound collectors who generously released their pieces on www.freesound.org unter a creative commons license - in detail:
a severe thunderstorm by martin lightning (including also storms from rhumphries); wind by black boe; wind chimes and creaking wood by smusounddesign; wind chimes by freed; water bubbles by suonho elements; clockworks by klangbeeld; a russian telegraph by microscopia; and a cuckoo clock by morgantj.
in addition to that, miss.gunst wishes to thank the following artists and sound collectors for additional material that has been used for the post-production of the show:
bent grandfather’s clock based on the sound of a grandfather’s clock by digifish; wind created by ERH from freesound; and another time the cuckoo clock by morgantj. find out more about freesound at www.freesound.org - great many thanks!
moreover, very special thx to tk!
