Our sky is blushing.

 

Planets spin like dozed ballerinas, sliding forwards while arching back. Their motions are mute, magical, and brutal. Their dancing paints the moon pretty.

 

Mercury is a dicey girl singing of wasted presidents, leaking fuel, day jobs, stolen landscapes, and lost passports. Everyday she watches our lovemaking to wires and metal. She takes us out for breakfast and puts us back to sleep with a smile. She embraces our ghosts, who hide behind anthems, poems, names and lyrics. This retrograde is a slow dive into her music, a reverse web of sound, image, song and message.

 

This Summer we kiss backwards, when Montez Press takes over Mathew Gallery for 30 days of continuous radio. During August  3 - 5, Berlin Community Radio streams its earlier breaths from Chinatown, NY. We will play with our past fortunes for 72 hours, drink the medicine of our bad luck and lick the candy of our older rhythms.

3. 02:15-03:00 ASMR, Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response, is a physiological "tingling" reaction to soft sounds and whispering. Artist and programmer Claire Tolan developed a radio show called ‘You’re Worth It’ for Berlin Community Radio, in which she triggers ASMR through whisper-soft narrative and object-play. Claire won CTM Radio Lab award for her program and went on to complete a three months residence in London’s White Studios. Tolan’s early interests lie in human-computer interaction, network behaviour and language (of care), encouraged by studies in Information Science and English Literature. Through her work she highlights the level of functional intimacy – both physical and emotional – created by the ASMR artists, showing how the community has galvanised around the need for a meditative space, one that counteracts attention-hungry apps, tabs and feeds.

18. 22:00 - 23:00 The Tunnel -a novel-turn radio show-turn art installation-turn BCR radio studio interior is the meta in joke and somehow it’s maybe a perfect way to tell the story of the radio station.

When tasked with custom building BCR’s new studio Grayson used the materials from his just de-installed show at Frankfurt am Main, and just like that we witnessed the Tunnel come full circle to bite its own tail.

 

‘The Tunnel by William H. Gass is a novel I’ve been reading live on Berlin Community Radio once a week for an hour over the last two years. It’s a very long book, and one appealing to a reader who brings a certain sense of adventure. Not only is any sense of narrative completely fragmented, the book is filled with design interventions that affect the page: from subtle changes in font to mutations where paragraphs and words become images and columns that reflect the point of view of its protagonist William Frederick Koehler— a professor of History at a midwestern American university who has just written his magnum opus (Guilt and Innocence in Hitler’s Germany)—but when he finds himself with the task of writing the introduction he is unable, so he begins to secretly dig a tunnel from underneath his home office as a means of escape.

Best described as a verbal, visual and musical hole, The Tunnel compares visual feelings of immense beauty and sophistication of language within the text to a subject as horrific as Hitler’s Germany. {History}

William H. Gass says of his writing in a interview:

“I always wanted the words to be in the mouth, also in the eye, but in the mouth. To be chewed…reading is accompanied by a lot of muscular activities you’re making. So I always wanted the words to be in the mouth, to be chewed.”

It’s true, that while reading The Tunnel, one finds himself needing to mouth the sentences in order to thoroughly see them in the same way touching a sculpture is instinctual when its material is of beckoning tactility. Departing from this idea, through the formal constraints of internet radio, the alteration became putting those words into the ear knowing the brain would swiftly deliver them to the mouth. I thought ‘what a joy it is to read these words, what a joy it would be to hear them read.’

For the exhibition at Frankfurt-Am-Main, the book has been transposed into a social space where the text itself is the upholstery for the arrangement of furniture that occupies the exhibition. When sitting on the bench and leaning on the table, you’re surrounded by this book and invited to examine it closely in parts with various magnifying lenses available for use. Also available for use is the table’s center piece, an architectural model cum ashtray in the shape of a funnel /black hole supported by multi fragmented levels of a grand staircase, carrying the thought of (mind and matter) moving through architecture as a means of escape.’

 

 

19. 23:00 - 00:00 Pan Daijing - I love you and please say you love me too

Musician, producer and performance artist, Pan Daijing, presents a monthly show on BCR sharing sound pieces and tracks from her harddrive.

Sunday, August 5th

 

1. 00:00 - 01:00 As a musician and sound artist Jessica Ekomane creates situations where the sound acts as a transformative element for the space and the audience.

4. 04:00 - 06:00 Insane Theories #11 ‘Games’

A physical conversation riddled with opposition and many rules.

Firmly Preconceived. Notions of what success looks like feelings.

White drapes, them at home; travelers fly, claimed colors.

Borders are the goal keepers, the goal of all collective surveillance for pleasure.

Ultimate judgement cast by the zebra, her goals clear, her bias said neutral.

She revels in the game, her longevity determined by the ability to see in stark contrast.

She stops relevant time with a blow espied and transmogrified by thousands.

 

5. 06:00 - 07:00 You’re Worth It - ASMR, Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response, is a physiological "tingling" reaction to soft sounds and whispering. You're Worth It is a show dedicated to ASMR and relaxation. Listen through headphones.
