Joshua Churchill, Long-form parallel overnight field recording, Djerassi SMIP Ranch, Woodside, CA, Sept 6, 2011

These multi-hour overnight field recordings were recorded by Joshua Churchill at various locations in 2011 and 2012. They are being played back without interruption at the same time of the night and early morning as they were originally recorded, detailing the aural environment of that particular place and time.

This particular field recording includes choruses of crickets, coyotoes, owls and songbirds, as well as the occasional overhead plane and other unidentifiable animals/insects which can be heard directly investigating the microphone/recorder.

As Against the Fevered Distance: Landscape Film and the Poisoned Sublime

SHU (Blue Hour Lullaby) by Philipp Lachenmann 

“…The direct star-blast from vectors and signals, from the vertical and the spatial. As against the fevered distance of the cultural gaze.

Joy in the collapse of metaphor […]. The exhilaration of obscenity, the obscenity of obviousness, the obviousness of power, the power of simulation. As against our disappointed virginity, our chasms of affectation.

Sideration. Star-blasted, horizontally by car, altitudinally by the plane, electronically by television, geologically by deserts, stereolithically by the megapoloi, transpolitically by the power game, the power museum that America has become for the whole world.”  – Jean Baudrillard, America

The wide open spaces of the American West, banality born of extreme distance. Inspired by America, Jean Baudrillard’s infamously Continental adaptation of the freewheeling Kerouacian beatnik jaunt, this program exalts the lure and love of American spaces, laments the end of adventure on the open road, and presents troubled fantasies of freedom made impossible within our Google-mapped, GPS-ed, infinitely surveilled landscape. Program begins with Deborah Stratman’s In Order Not to Be Here—“images of suburban surveillance and violence that push up against the limits of the real”—and concludes with Steven Matheson’s Apple Grown in Wind Tunnel, a masterful mystery narrative of environmental illness and truck stop subcultures with pirate radio broadcasts wafting across the poisoned planes of the American west. The films between: Landscapes in Alphabetical Order by Katherin McInnis, the map and the territory, rationalized; Trypps #7 (Badlands) by Ben Russell, crystalline depiction of desert dissolution; SHU (Blue Hour Lullaby) by Philipp Lachenmann, in which the stars shine bright over the old carceral home; Olivo Barbieri’s site specific_LAS VEGAS 05, the desert oasis rendered as a micro-panoptic toy; and the final “lost film” by Will Hindle, the lyrical road film Trekkerriff.

–Steve Polta

Tune in at 7pm (PDT) to hear Alex Curse read her essay,”The Crystal Lassie Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors, Even: Bel Geddes, Duchamp, Minkowski, and Theming the Fourth Dimension.”

by emily

Local writer/artist Alex Cruse reads her essay, “The Crystal Lassie Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors, Even: Bel Geddes, Duchamp, Minkowski, and Theming the Fourth Dimension.”
Cruse examines how a then-nascent “sci-fi” aesthetic and “4D” ideation of space in the mid-20th century relate to the continued othering and objectification of the female form. Additionally, she shows how ‘theming,’ as cultural practice, has infiltrated the very intellectual modes that permit our understanding of the architectural, historical, artistic, or scientific phenomena discussed in the essay.


Tune in today at noon!

by emily

Tune in at noon for an interview with Amy Balkin by Michael DeLong followed by an interview with Steve Dunifer from Free Radio Berkeley by Nicole Jones.

After that, tune in for Movement, Language, Space a project by Josué Rivera and Cory Scozzari followed by Exercises in Remote Landscape Exploration a sound piece by Renee Rhodes.
