Resynth for Radio
For the temporary art radio station Radiophrenia (13 – 26 May 2019), Lukas Grundmann and Hugo Esquinca propose a collaborative generative composition together with Chronopolis, a special format on Cashmere Radio that seeks to explore the duration and fragile time unique to the radio listening experience.
“Resynth for Radio” feeds and processes the different shows aired by Radiophrenia and Cashmere Radio in real time, together with evolving electronics, being programmed to run simultaneously on its own stream, as well as in selected slots during the fourteen days on both stations. The live processing has a direct effect on the structure and process of the composition itself, leading to an organization of sounds which are generated, developed, and modified from, through and for Radiophrenia and Cashmere Radio.
Hugo Esquinca is a Berlin-based sound researcher from Mexico. In his work he investigates the diverse spatial-temporal relations deriving from transductive interactions between indeterminacy, thresholds of instability, micro temporality, digital signal processing and sonorous modulation at various perceptual, physical and material degrees.
Lukas Grundmann is a sound artist, one of the co-organizers of Cashmere Radio and teaches for the Master’s course in Sound Studies and Sonic Arts at the Berlin University of the Arts. In his art, he deals with the relationship between medium and message, signal and noise, time and sound.
