RSR (Live From Lausanne)

RSR (Switzerland)

HarS (Harold Schellinx)

Dégoteur de bandes magnétiques esseulées, remonteur de cassettes audio écrasées, stockeur de souvenirs jetés : ainsi va le paradigme sémantique du Foundtaping. Un des grands maîtres en matière de trouvailles phonographiques se nomme Harold Schellinx :

Au gré de ses vagabondages à Paris et sa proche banlieue, ce « cassettophile » néerlandais ramasse des bouts de bandes magnétiques abandonnées dans la rue, sur les parkings, les bords d’autoroutes et autres recoins urbains.

Une fois le gibier analogique entre ses mains, il le ressucite : démêlage de l’imbroglio de bandes, rembobinage dans une nouvelle cassette, écoute, sélection de fragments sonores numérisés puis collectés dans son exposition virtuelle (disponibles en podcast). Messages de répondeurs téléphoniques, récitations du Coran, patchwork musical, conférences, conversations privées… le monde précieux du souvenir analogique est enfin réhabilité et retentit a fortiori en mode déformé.

HAROLD SCHELLINX est mathématicien, musicien, performeur et média-artiste. Il est rédacteur-en-chef de PARK4DTV’s ‘Raudio’, une moitié du duo néerlandais ‘ookoi fondateur du quartet parisien ‘DIktat’ (impro libre), et beaucoup plus encore.

studied formal music and computer assisted composition with

Gotfried Michael Koenig at the Institute of Sonology (Utrecht University), and mathematics and

its foundations at the University of Amsterdam (PhD 1994).

Since 2000 his musical work growingly has become based on his ’sonic diary’, an audio

cassette archive of monophonic recordings made of his (and others’) everyday activities,

always with a lapel microphone and a dictaphone walkman. The ’sonic diary’ covers a period of

over 30 years

Schellinx’ current activities include: the Amsterdam based eclectic media duo ‘ookoi’, who over

the past four, five years have been assembling a collection of sound- and other media works

conceived of as the continuous re-arrangement and transformation of extracts from ookoi’s

growing library of live and field recordings; ookoi’s work, situated somewhere between

performance-art and concert, between theater and music, between visual and sound art, has

been published on CD, DVD, in the form of a DDD (Digital Data Dump), through audio web

streams, as well as through a series of podcasts (audio) and vodcasts (audio/video); the online

‘found tapes exhibition’, which meticulously records in ‘blog format’, the efforts and results of

restauring the audio tape debris that he is picking up from the streets through which he passes

since early 2002. He documents his and related work online since 2002 in the ’soundblog’. He

is editor-in-chief of Raudio, a collection of 24/7 audio webstreams hosted by the Amsterdam

based artists collective PARK4DTV.

Live from Lausanne

PIRX is an improvising working-band, found 2004 by Marion Wörle (laptop) and Maciej

Sledziecki (guitar). PIRX is working on a musical language, based on interaction between

analogue and digital sounds.

Generally analogue material used by Marion Wörle is developed by diverse electronic

manipulation to a dynamic, flexible system. Maciej Sledziecki uses the guitar as a sound-

generator and percussion- instrument. Preparations and a sparesome use of electronic effects

are characteristic for his playing. These sounds form the material for the collective

improvisation between tonal and atonal poles.
