1.7-30 Mhz



IHab135. JUAN JOSÉ CALARCO - espectro

'Espectro' (spanish) stands for both spectrum as radio-frequency spectrum and spectre as a ghostly presence.

All sounds comes from shortwave and LF radio transmissions, mostly untreated, even what it sounds like some morning birds comes from intriguing broadcasts like boat communications, time signals, number stations and other mysterious sources.

Includes special photo document by Cristian Espinoza.

Flying away



IHab131. JUAN ANTONIO NIETO - Airports & Hotels

Airports & Hotels is a compilation of the sounds I have found in the trips I have made in recent years.

The sources of these sounds are field recordings made at different airports, on airplanes and in hotels. In these last ones the recordings are improvisations with the elements that I found in them and their different stays. These recordings were made with the windows open to capture the sounds of the outside, rain, traffic, people talking, etc.

Before and/or during



IHab130. UNA LEE - in Transit: [& transitions]

When before and/or during traveling for work, not always feeling exactly excited, taking sound recordings or better described as listening to the environment through a sound recording device in a concentrated form is helpful to me in calming myself down and making me feel safe. This 31 minute long composition consists of 12 sound recordings taken over the course of 5 days in 3 countries, 6 cities and 3 houses between 2 homes of mine via 1 international airspace. The recordings are primarily simply juxtaposed after one another, somewhat depicting the last intercontinental journey that I’ve made, which was long and subsequently made me restless.

IV



IHab125
. LUÍS ANTERO - O rio / The river, Vol. 4


Initially, the ambient and hypnotic sound produced by Luís Antero presages a trip to a sound record that has as narrative the sounds, history and stories of the region of the mountain range. Thus, in this sequence, the phonographic material becomes, in a certain way, an almost cinematographic record that has as a film the evocation of the past - without ever forgetting the present - and the oral history of the narrators that give life to people again camouflaging them.
-Alexandre Relvas

Brutalism



IHab124
. A.J. HOLMES - Robin Hood Gardens - Tour

Clock hand movement



IHab123
. MANUEL CALURANO - Ciclos sonoros


Listening is one of the best experiences which make us aware of the complex nature of time and of our relationship with it. It also helps us to understand time itself, in the sense that it may be altered by different kind of stimuli. It is by means of the clock hand movement, or by the division of time in days, weeks, months, years, and so on, that we can create an almost unalterable plot which prevents us from our own subjectivity.
