Near And Distant Relations (2008)
Eric Leonardson & Steve Barsotti

Taken from album Rarebit, "the culmination of a four-year project by sound artists and instrument inventors Steve Barsotti and Eric Leonardson. Taking their cues from 20th Century sound artist-inventors Luigi Russolo and Harry Partch, the self-built instruments of Barsotti and Leonardson use coil springs, eyebolts, various pieces of wood and other familiar materials that are amplified by contact microphones, skilfully producing sounds of incredible depth and texture, an amazing richness and variety given their humble origins.

Downtime (2014)
Tom Richards (in collaboration with Christian Nyampeta)
A 24/7 live and publicly tunable radio reception that is channeled through a reverb plate and a prototypical sequencer that produces a randomly alternating rhythm. Added to the receiver is an ambient microphone that captures all the sonic environments including the reverb plate itself and the speakers, and the weekly made monochords.


From six till nine or thereabouts, this week's gathering of Radius follows the late ethnomusicologist Christopher Small, who proposed an empowering understanding of music, as a movement away from its reification as an object. Instead, as Christopher Small suggests, musicking is a social activity, capable of generating a plurality of cultural and political micro-universes. Gathered in this session are activities that are both results of, and the matrix itself of something we could call sonic atmospheres that bypass our own bodies, the limitations of speech and the dormant arrogance of certainty.
