SOUNDLIFE CHAPTER 4: INTERMISSION (NOISEPHASE)
Chapter Four from Soundlife of Slavek Kwi, radio-series
This is fourth instalment of another soundOrganism destined for Framework radio. These Soundscapes contains sequences triggered by my very ordinary and extraordinary soundEnvironments, which includes also creative-process-fragments from Sounday*s and spoken or sang thoughts.
Today, 5.11.2016, was my first Sounday* since July. I relocated then to eastern Clare, closer to western Atlantic coast of Ireland. We love it here. For the moment we are spending a lot of time renovating and updating house. We have here even separated studios from converted double-garage, wonderful prospects!
Obviously, in this piece are many recordings from works in our new home: you can hear variations on industrial-like and machine sounds; such as of drilling, cutting, scratching, painting, hammering and its surroundings. In between I managed somehow to visit Museo Vostell Malpartida near Caceres in Spain for a performance (here are hidden recordings from there: will you find it, Alberto Flores?) and also to collaborate with young poet Seamus Barra O’Suilleabhain – who writes (and recites) in Gaelic – you will notice various segments from this process, including Kwiboys singing with my live set-up and fragment from live recordings in Tivoli Backstage in Dublin during IMRAM festival directed by Liam Carson.
Pops (my father in law) humming and whistling while helping us with painting, Seamus Barra O’Suilleabhain improvising with his words, little fragment from Liam Carson’s introduction of concert, Kwiboys running around and laughing and yelling and singing while listening CD-walkmans in the car, Jakwi in english and Jokwi in czech … and Kwi-senior reciting text “aboutCulture” written by
Molly Vienka Harrison.
For all my friends, unfriends and not friends yet. Many thanks to Patrick – for continuous support of Soundlife series.
*Sounday is singular unit of Soundlife, events within are a Re_Ality Particles.
