[Nettime-ro] Matei Bejenaru - ORF Kunstradio Vienna

Within the course of the 1 programme series "Nebenan" 
(next door) which focusses on Romania this month, 
Kunstradio has invited Matei Bejenaru, a Romanian 
visual artist, curator and initiator of the 
Periferic/Peripheral Contemporary Arts Biennial in his 
home town Iasi, to do a live speaking performance for 
the radio. This is part of an existant cycle where the 
artist deals with different languages' rhythms and 
melodies - for instance by means of manipulation and 
iteration - as well as with an immediate physical and 
spiritual experience evoked by the recitation, 
sometimes going on for hours. Usually, these speaking 
performances are conceptually imbedded in a site-
specific context. Today's broadcast comprises three 
parts: Speaking 5 is the attempt to open up a field of 
associations linked to a certain term, idea - basing on 
a collection of around 600 German words which the 
artist recites. Speaking 6 is an investigation on how 
the specific sound of a language changes due to 
omitting select letters, parts etc. according to a 
special algorithm. "A Metamorphosis of Speaking" 
(Speaking 7) finally is a culmination of these language 
and speaking experiments, an extreme condensation of 
loops, superimpositions, delays resulting in a "white 
hissing" within which the original text is no longer 

The speaking performances for the radio will be 
broadcasted on ORF KUNSTRADIO Vienna, on November 24th,
