Thursday, 26th April 2018 at 20.30: John Duncan, a shortwave composition “The TELL”
in participation with Cirkulacija 2; the circulation of shortwave spectrum
Cirkulacija 2, Tobačna Ljubljana
On the occasion of our second invitation John Duncan and two artists from Bologna | Italy and the C2 crew will prepare and perform a concert/ performance with spatial sound system of Cirkulacija 2. Sound sorces will be shortwave radio emissions. The shortwave radio medium has been one of Duncan’s instruments for decades. Every sound transmitted by radio from Earth is by way of atmospheric, solar and other influences transformed into something unpredictable and non repeatable. Any of these influences also has its own radio dynamics. On the basis of these sounds Duncan will present a multi-channel composition, that will be distributed in space live.
Members of Cirkulacije 2 will also suggest a more immediate experience of catching the real-time radio signals. The project is a collaboration among three guest artists and three home artists.
John Duncan is an American, worked in Los Angeles, Tokyo, Amsterdam, currently in Bologna | Italy. His artistic areas are performance/ actionistic events, installations, contemporary music, video and experimental film. His events are jumps into basic existential situations – controverse and often almost brutally direct. Very important is his work in sound and music. He collaborated with Francisco López, zeitkratzer, Elliott Sharp, etc. In 2008 he started to teach sound art at Bologna Academy of Fine Arts. He remains active as artist, expanding it to music for contemporary dance.
