This episode features a phone call with Daniel R. Wilson who couldn't come to Hamburg due to a vicious virus. After the call, host Knut Aufermann plays a brilliant episode of Wilson's hilarious "Hellebore Shew" in which Wilson is harrassed by his speech roboter.
49.3 Papiripar Radio Remix
Listener Bernard Fontaine from Toulouse surprised us immediately after the festival with an hour-long collage that he had cut together from our broadcasts for his radio 49.3. We liked it so much that we decided to re-broadcast it.
Soundwalking on Radio Waves
With crooner, musician and radio playwright Günter Reznicek as a trail guide, Hamburg’s industrial wilderness was explored with the ears and examined for resonating bodies and sound spaces with the help of test signals. Open your ears! While the participants encoded the language of roads, bridges, grass, underground passages, sonic surprises happened. All acoustic events of the landscape exploration were broadcast live to the world as a musical composition via our Papiripar Radio. So even the neighboring cat in quarantine could experience your aural wanderings up close.
Due Duci: Konstruktzione
Due Duci are feine Trinkers bei Guttemplern Daheim. However, they prefer to make sound in the basement, preferably in their 001-studio in RBO. At the end of 2020, their first album "Bau" was released on cassette by 001-Records. Then, at the beginning of 2021, they stole 7K K-Paper and crawled into their K-cave for the time being. Now, for Papiripar, they exclusively re-emerged for a “Day On” and played their first GIG together.
Due Duci’s sound wavers from left to right and back again. Musically, the two cassette perpetrators can be categorised between noise, lo-fi, collage and nonsense. At Papiripar they played live for an hour, equipped with radios, tape decks, contact mics, bongos and duck flutes.
Louise Vind Nielsen: Milky Sequencer
It appears that time as a universal human measure has been obliterated. Clocks and watches have been confiscated. Slipping out from a milky white noise puddle, a gang with furry bodies, voices and feet will enter the radiant Planet Orsimanirana. Transmitting a tensile cushion of lumpy rhythmic vocals on a pink and green sky. Everyone is their own clock and a clock for the others, teasing out a vague memory of what those mechanical measures used to feel like.
Artist and composer Louise Vind Nielsen invites a group of vocal performers (Maria Rincon, Simon Alexander von Dratzig, Sophia Guttenhöfer & Zuza Spyczak von Brzezinska) to embody the milky sequencer and move into the community radio exhibition project “Life on Planet Orsimanirana”. Initiated by Jerszy Seymour Design Workshop together with Macao, Assemble, Dirty Art Department and Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe in Hamburg.
Louise Vind Nielsen (b.1984, Denmark) is a Hamburg-based conceptual sound-, performance- and visual artist. In a diverse artistic practise connecting elements of poetry, mythology, music and social engagement she seeks to examine human-human relations with an obscure and curious approach.
Anna Ramos, Roc Jiménez de Cisneros - Bat Echolocation Calls
This was recorded on 23-09-2011 at night with a stereo heterodyne bat detector in Parc de la Ciutadella, a big public park built in the mid-19th century, which was Barcelona's only green space at the time. One of the biggest features of the park is an ugly gigantic fountain that sits in the middle of a pond. At night, especially in summer, lots of bats fly over this pond and the nearby artificial lake, hunting mosquitoes, moths and other insects. Sometimes they fly so low they almost hit you. But they never do, cause they're the best.
“The Compression Chamber” is a perception distorting composition by Knut Aufermann. In this new variation for the Papiripar festival a dummy head microphone will be compressed to smithereens. What are the ramifications of this form of listening, when tiny noises suddenly sound huge and distant whines very close? Will we find connections to the sound of commercial radio with its non-existent dynamic range, to the arguments in the loudness wars, to deep listening or ASMR? Nika Son, Knut Aufermann and further 0dB ghosts will dive right in.
Knut Aufermann studied chemistry, audio engineering and sonic arts (MA Middlesex University, London). From 2002-2005 he was the station manager of Resonance FM in London, now he is active internationally as a radio artist, musician, organiser, curator and lecturer. Together with Sarah Washington he runs the project Mobile Radio investigating alternative means of radio production.
The KunstHasserStammTisch has made it their mission to address the setting and the medium in which it takes place. “Papiripar” (Hungarian) means “paper industry”. We interrogate the paper factory and stage a “mini-festival” at Papiripar, where compositions and Hits are performed with, about and from paper. With guests from the KHST. Special guest: Hannes Wienert.
Das KunstHasserStammTisch is the “fast” format of noroomgallery, which has been producing forms of presentation and mediation beyond the white cube for over 20 years. At the KunstHasserStammTisch, new forms of access to and with art are explored in one evening.
Delicacies from the depths of Herrengrabenfleet
Amazing sounds were fished out of the canal next to the window of our Westwerk radio studio with a water microphone (hydrophone).
Call Centre: Play it again, Sam (excerpt)
People were asked to call in and play a classical piece of music from their weathered notes or from dissonant memory of joyless practice. Unusual instruments were welcome.
Concerto Mobilé (excerpt)
Concerto Mobilé: LIVE and with heavy latency featuring Knut Aufermann, Sarah Washington, dieb13, Billy Roisz, Maximilian Glass, Fleurop, Nika Son, Felix Kubin
Polter-Abend: Call Centre for Destruction
The Papiripar Festival invited its audience to a controlled destruction parade. Local smashing stars destroyed favourite objects, hate objects or superfluous heirlooms of different sizes with hammer, axe and bare fist in the tiled walls an old garage. The festival hereby created a supervised forum for the discharge of pent-up energies. The performance was transmitted from the workshop of the Gröninger Hof to the radio by means of installed room microphones.
Also, listeners were encouraged to call in and destroy objects. Their actions were broadcast via telephone directly from their domestic homes.
Thomas Baldischwyler: Cheap Flights 2 Chicago Edit
An Edit of Thomas Baldischwyler's LIVE broadcast from the installation of his solo exhibition IN CC at Hamburg’s Galerie Conradi. see >> Timetable Saturday
Thomas Baldischwyler likes to burn the money he earns as a visual artist with producing vinyl records. One of his niche labels (TRAVEL BY GOODS) will be 10 years old in 2021. He doesn’t actually like to travel, but had to leave Hamburg several times in recent years for residencies in other European countries. That's why airports are very familiar to him.
ALKU: EVOL live concert
LIVE from the Papiripar Radio Station at Westwerk.
EVOL / Roc Jiménez de Cisneros
Roc Jiménez de Cisneros (Barcelona, 1975) is an artist. He is part of the computer music group
EVOL together with Scottish artist Stephen Sharp. Roc’s work explores processes of
deformation, both literally and metaphorically, in graphical pieces, light installations, essays and,
especially, music. His recordings have been released by labels such as Diagonal, Editions
Mego, Presto!? or iDEAL amongst others. His music, both solo and with Sharp, is based on a
drastically reductionist approach to musical palette, focusing on very few sound objects at a
time. An assemblage of flexing, flexible bass lines and asymmetric beats which makes use of
analogies about bending and twisting to stretch some of his favourite cultural icons, from
hardstyle arpeggios to 80s house music –– he calls it Acid Mereotopology.
Mentos Gulgendo: Church Concert
The Polish sisters “Mentos Gulgendo” have performed a concert in the Immanuelkirche Veddel. They played in complete isolation because they wanted to concentrate entirely on the subtle changes in air pressure and prefer to be among themselves anyway.
Mentos Gulgendo is a fictional philosopher and a main propagator of the “Harmless Lunatics” theory. The theory states that our universe has been created by the representatives of the cosmic madhouse. Every representative used the finest and the most subtle electromagnetic waves to weave a field of transcendental beauty penetrating the structure of each other. The field expanded invading the solid structures of rationality and therefore transforming the traditional form of identity into a liquid, unsustainable fat.
A journey on punk and teeth: Just because your teeth are crooked doesn't mean giving up your rebellious attitude. Quite the contrary: in the fight against everything beautiful, your teeth are on the hit list anyway.
Tintin Patrone is a German-Filipino composer, musician, actress, film and music producer as well as painter, performance artist and author. The connections between music, art, sound and experimental gesture is the general field TinTin Patrone is interested in. One focus of her creations lies on the visual elements of music, the tension between conceptual ideas and physical existence and how we relate to music individually and as a society.
Her performances and installations include elements from musical Concept-Art, Fluxus and Social practice. Her projects work as a form of comparative study of art and music, from their formal aspects to their points of overlap in history. Another important inspiration that informs her artistic practice is the culture of associations and clubs; she often performs with her orchestra or cooperates with other artists and collectives.
Ditterich von Euler-Donnersperg: electronic gurnard concert
Born in the cold turnip winter of 47, the songs of the Trümmerfrauen and the gentle swaying in the willow branches helped him to thaw. His great-uncle Onkel Klopstock warned the man who grew up with an ardent love of music: “The only thing that helps against the prevalence of artists is their arrest and the burning of their works.” Today he stands there, unbowed by the north wind and false vanity, scratching his creaky board.
