radio in between spaces edition #16


radio in between spaces #16 presents recordings and artists from the label Discrepant launched by sound artist Gonçalo F. Cardoso in London in 2010. Since the first publication - a surreal collage by DIY-ethnographer and sound artist Laurent Jeanneau aka Kink Gong with recordings from the northern Chinese province of Xinjiang - Discrepant has become a treasure trove for hybrid, unclassifiable, extraordinary "global music from somewhere and nowhere at the same time". For radio in between spaces Gonçalo Cardoso has created an exclusive playlist from the extensive Discrepant catalog, including music by Mazen Kerbaj, Carlos Casas, Laurent Jeanneau aka Kink Gong and Mark Gergis. And if everything goes well, these artists will also be featured in interviews.


Sonic Perspectives from the Global South. Sounding Hospitalities. Time, Sound and Emancipatory Practices. Radio as Activism.

In sonic lectures, live performances, conversations, compositions, documentaries, and radio plays, radio in between spaces is exploring the interplay of sound, public and private space, activist and artistic practice. International sound artists and experimental musicians, philosophers and theorists, critics and journalists examine questions of foreignness and proximity, solidarity and dissonance, vibration and materiality, meaning and noise, permeability and resistance.


radio in between spaces is a cooperation of ZAM Zentrum für aktuelle Musik e.V. with Akademie der Künste der Welt (Academy of the Arts of the World), Academy of Media Arts Cologne, and the Experimental Radio of the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar and its projects and Supported by the TURN fund of the Federal Cultural Foundation, the Kunststiftung NRW and Kulturamt der Stadt Köln.
