The basic constructive principle of this piece is the confrontation, or contamination, of two kinds of materials, both originally created on the 28th of October 2016 (the Independent Czechoslovak State Day). The first is the broadcasting of Czech Radio Vltava, the other sonic situations in which the author, Tomáš Vtípil, was involved at the same time.


Tomáš Vtípil: RADIACE 20161028

Vložit na svůj web

One of the basic properties of radio broadcasting (and mass-media communication in general) is thus taken as the basic topic: radiating information out into an unknown context, which is (apparently?) unrelated. The unities of place, time and action are broken and it is necessary to search for unity on a different level, within a different code.

Simple synaesthetic associations can serve as a guide. Or perhaps the entirely personal experience of a complementary nature; perceiving public radio broadcasting, cast in the symbolic light of a national holiday in a time of tense political masquerades, in contrast with “real life” experiences of an entirely different kind.

Music is a particularly useful tool in this search.

Radiation 20161028 was created as a commission from Czech Radio for its Radiocustica series, in association with the Brno Contemporary Orchestra and the Brno Philharmonic.
