LIVE PERFORMANCE AND LIVE RADIO BROADCAST BY ANNA FRIZ AND KONRAD KORABIEWSKI (2014-2015)
‘Telefunken Twins’ is a suite of pieces departing from a duet between two vintage Telefunken Bajazzo radio/cassette decks. Using radio as instrument and as system exciter, the pieces also utilize micro-FM transmission, low fidelity electronic instruments, analogue tape, dictaphones, walkie talkies, spectral monitoring, and intricate feedback systems to craft and expressive and intimate world from the sensuality of signal and noise. By working with small circuits of transmission, ‘Telefunken Twins’ seeks to transform radio away from its everyday role as an apparatus of entertainment or information diffusion, instead proposing radio as instrument, as landscape, and as a poetic space of reverie.
‘Telefunken Twins’ is commissioned for broadcast by Ö1 Kunstradio, Austria and supported by Danish Arts Foundation.
