radia # 571: Taxonomy of sonorous order DIE ZWEITE HÄLFTE radia #212 by Stephan Roth
a programme provided by the wiener radia kollektiv
Categorising, tagging, assigning and conducting research as a creative process. Where do art and order come together? How do artists use archives or archived material? Does the digital card index therefore need a digital artist? How can digital archives be handled artistically? What are the interests of community radio stations? What is the infrastructure like? Lale Rodgarkia-Dara and Karl Schönswetter want to use a live (radio) performance to transform material from archives and on-site recordings into a live feedback transmission and thereby establish a seamless transition between a reticent lecture and an in-your-face live show. What happens if the public annotates the transmission and creates a new work of art out of the archive molasses? An acoustic overwriting of a long day of busy conferencing mixed with archive material from the conference participants. Well, now we know.
Lale Rodgarkia-Dara and Karl Schönswetter from Vienna used an analog catalogue of the Cultural Broadcasting Archive and Live-Recordings from the conference “Radio Archives in European Community Media” to activate free radio archives.
“Taxonomy of sonorous order” was recorded 6th june 2015 in Halle.

DIE ZWEITE HÄLFTE
radia # 212
stiller marktschrei- silent exclamation from the market
by Stephan Roth
Time-transformations are obliged to music and sonic reception. On July 19th 2008 the soundartist Stephan Roth, co-curator of the “Elektronik Teatime”, produced a sound-installation the SOHO-projektwerkstatt, a free artist-space near a grocery market in Vienna.
For 24hours he focussed his microphones soberly onto the Brunnenmarkt in Vienna, a local fruit- and vegetables market. He subverts gently the receptiveness of the listeners by transforming 24 hours recording footage into one slow dynamic wave of 27minutes. Transformation without reduction.
For the installation he and the artist Martin Roth filled the white space with found material: typical grocery market packaging. All kinds of packaging-cases and plastic bags. Pilled up cases were filled with plastic-bags, that where moving and breathing, hardly perceivable.
