Stockhausenâs use and interpretation of shortwave broadcasting â lecture + documentary
17/11 â 8pm

In the sixties (during what probably was the most metaphysical phase in his career) Stockhausen used shortwave radio as a source of musical information.
The lecture on Stockhausens' interpretation of these broadcasts, given by Guy de BiÃvre (B/ composer, musician, and theoretic on sound art) will be followed by a projection of the documentary "Kurzwellen", a registration by the ORTF/Luc Ferrari of Stockhausensâ performance in the Lebanese Caves of Jeita, November 1969.

Transgressing the boundaries of everyday-life: considering radio as an apparatus of distribution â lecture performance by Ligna Collective (D)
18/11 -- 8.30 pm

Nowadays radio seems to be an old-fashioned modern medium and the hope Brecht had is now projected - again often enough merely in a technical sense - on the internet and open source approaches. LIGNA proposes with its work a different perspective: We have to get rid of the technical reading of Brecht and recognise that his critique was meant in a social and political way. Only as an apparatus of distribution, radio could organise it's listeners and thus intervene in everyday-life situations - and thus could provide means to overcome a society that is based on the exchange of commodities.
The lecture will discuss this thesis and it's aesthetical implications with a lot of examples and images of Lignaâs work.
