    • Janek Schaefer's Local Radio Orchestra

      Sat 5th May 2012, 11am-5pm Modern Art Oxford, Oxford OX1 1BP Janek Schaefer’s latest sonic creation is an orchestra of radios. With a Transmitter Trunk full of FM transmitters, Janek’s pirate station hijacks and saturates the entire radio spectrum within a short radius. His selection of classic portable radios is used by the audience to pick one of twelve separate parts of a composition, tuning in and out to make infinite new arrangements. The Local Radio Orchestra will play two pieces of music composed by Janek: Love Hz uses recordings of an Indian bellows organ called 'The Shruti Box'. Twelve separate notes from this intricate hand pumped drone instrument have been recorded. Each will be broadcast on a different frequency across the FM radio spectrum in ascending order. The lowest note at 88FM and the highest at 108FM. You are encouraged to join the orchestra and perform your own arrangements by retuning the dial and influencing the character of the work. Secret Service [all creeds all colours] collects examples of religious celebration music and sound from around the world. It showcases the glorious diversity of the cultural melting pot we inhabit. There are twenty eight recordings to tune into on the radio dials. This music was originally produced for Colourscape, Clapham Common 2010. Local Radio Orchestra was commissioned by OCM, South Hill Park and Beaford Arts with support from PRS for Music Foundation. www.ocmevents.org

        • "Asleep at the Wheel..." [where is our culture heading?]

          For a free download of the entire project including the film, all spoken word content from the cars, music and photos, links and resources etc, please visit the project page at: http://www.audiOh.com/projects/asleepatthewheel.html "Asleep at the wheel…" is a thought provoking and immersive sound installation for multiple car radios, that contemplates our future. Exhibited in a vast disused supermarket, three-lanes of cars dissect the darkened interior, as the multiple hazard lights illuminate the space, revealing the finite road of our consumer driven daydream. 'More more more' is no longer a desirable destination. You are invited to be a passenger in the back seats, as the in-car sound systems broadcast a collage of moving music and motivating sound-bites. On the return journey the Lay-by Library area encourages you to explore positive ways to improve our future together. Society's pedal to the metal attitude to our world is not sustainable and is running out of road. We need to change gear, before we overtake ourselves . . . our windows of opportunity are slowly winding shut. Come and celebrate new beginnings. - - - - Janek Schaefer trained as an architect and is now a full time Sound Artist, and in 2008 was The British Composer of the Year in Sonic Art.
