Grand Union Canal at Harlesden: Willesden Juncion’ is a sonic, visual and written essay based on the collective experience of Maria Papadomanolaki, Yiorgis Sakellariou, Lina Velandia and I at this location situated in the north of London on February 19.

During the closing dinner party of the ‘In the field’ symposium (where I was invited by CRISAP and the British Library to give a lecture) Maria Papadomanolaki, Yiorgis Sakellariou -sound artists-, Lina Velandia -photographer- and I engaged in an interesting conversation that prompted a mutual interest in finding and explore a location within the London area that could visually and sonically appeal us. The original plan was to record in an abandoned building in Harlesden close to the Willesden Junction train station but we were not allowed to get in, and since they had security personnel and vigilante dogs, we didn’t manage to sneak in either. A few hundred meters away from the building we found the Grand Union Canal and this is where the exploration actually took place.

‘Ikzz’
by DARIUS CIUTA

Darius Ciuta is one of the really interesting sound artist today. His name and works were included on many of the notes and lists presented on The Field Reporter retrospective articles. His prolific production doesn’t seem to overwhelm the audience for concrete and phonographic works, otherwise it seems like there is a growing interest on his solo and collaborative works. For the second time Darius was kind enough to compose a work for The Field Reporter radio: the piece is titled ‘Ikzz’ and it has a duration of 2 hours and 47 minutes. ‘Ikzz’ could equally work as a piece to carefully follow on its smallest details or as a background piece to blend with the incidental sounds occurring.

We would like to thank Impulsive Habitat and Pedro Leitâo for his logistic collaboration.

El Coyote (#15)

‘El Coyote’
by David Velez

.

.

‘El Coyote’ is a sonic, visual and written essay based on my experience in the touristic complex of Bijao in Panama on January of 2013.

In Bijao the tension between the ecosystem and the intrusive architecture was evident from the moment I arrived: this environmental contrast and the subjacent anthropological and biological implications expressed in the formal aspects of the area became the focus of my artistic interest.

These recordings are not about an ideal virgin natural environment, but about an available quotidian environment with presence of men, machines and architecture on a predominantly natural habitat. If wild life recordings are considered neo-romantic, I’d consider these recordings neo-realistic.

On a more specific approach ‘El coyote’  is about the way the animals adapt their acoustic behavior to the sounds of machines when they become part of their their environment. About how the questions and reflections of my interest are projected and reflected in this environment and the resonance I managed to establish with it.

I asked photographer Lina Velandia to capture images as I wanted this essay to be both sonic and visual. The images reflect the acousmatic character of environmental recordings when birds, insects and amphibians inhabit the area. The photos also serve as some sort of contrasting element to the sounds: while in the sound piece the animals are in the foreground and the machines in the background, in the images we see no animals but we can only see the intrusive presence of men depicted in the construction machinery and in the aridity of certain spots found in Bijao.

During the recordings of these sounds some reflections in regard of the phonographic composition came to my mind and I am using them to complement the essay.

-The sound material was composed with long fragments of recordings without layer processing. Some equalization was done at certain parts to explore the possibility of making them more realistic-

The Field Reporter noteworthy sounds and works from 2012 Radio program PART (#14)

BESTOF2012

On The Field Reporter every year we like to make a sort of guide for our readers with sound, releases, places, ideas that were notable through 2012. With that on mind we contacted a group of artists, journalists and curators to join our team making a series of lists and notes of what they think was noteworthy through 2012. This year we have a new element: mixes made by some of our editors with fragments from those works and experiences.

The Field Reporter Radio #3 “Sub-Eco”
piece composed by Alejandro Henao, Miguel Isaza

A world built of constant nature flows between residues of industrial evolution that shape a deep, decadent and almost artificial valley that despite of being plagued by incessant machinery, still retains a substance of “life” somewhere inside. A sonic tour trough derived realities, extracted live in an improvisation of Alejandro Henao and Miguel Isaza, combining/processing recordings both did in the valley during 2011 and 2012.

The Field Reporter Radio #2 “Kone ja sielu”
piece composed by Jukka Vakkinen-Kannonen

Jukka Vakkinne-Kannonen visited a series of factories in rural areas near Tampere, Finland to capture sounds from machines and industrial processes in a natural environment. He made a brief montage with them leaving them untreated and sent us the piece “Kone ja sielu” (machines and soul) to us for our second radio show.

These are two sentences that Jukka choose to articulate with this work and with his interest with the sounds from machines and factories.

“People who record birdsong generally do it very early, before six o’clock, if they can. Soon after that, the invasion of distant noise in most woodland becomes too constant and too loud.”
-Richard Adams from Watership Down

“…technology wasn’t invented by us humans. Rather the other way around. As anthropologists and biologists admit, even the simplest life forms, infusoria (tiny algae synthesized by light at the edges of tidepools a few million years ago) are already technical devices.”
-Jean Francois Lyotard from The Inhuman
