There Then, Hear NowHighlight

New series with Mark Aitken about the relationship between photography and sound. We know that photographs are fictions and not being able to see them compounds this fact. Just try and explain a photograph to somebody. Instead, this series investigates sounds inspired by photographs. Hearing is another way of seeing... This week: William Eggleston once said that he was 'at war with the obvious'. A lot of his work over the past six decades has involved photographing the obvious in ways that often confound and intrigue. Working mainly around Memphis and the Mississippi delta, Eggleston's work is especially inspirational for sound and music. With contributions from National Portrait Gallery curators where Eggleston's work is currently on display. [Repeated Sunday 5am.]

SHAPE

[Repeated from Thursday 10.30pm.] A monthly programme by SHAPE (Sound, Heterogeneous Art & Performance in Europe), the platform established in 2014 by 16 European festivals with support of EU's Creative Europe programme to promote up-and-coming musicians and innovative audiovisual artists. On today's show, we talk to 4 artists who explore such topics as the military, transhumanism and memory, but also work with traditional instruments like the vibraphone. Born in Mainz and based in Berlin, Nik Nowak‘s sound objects combine the aesthetic qualities of sculpture with utility or functional objects, and explore urban or military phenomena at play in everyday life. We visited him in his Neukölln studio one August afternoon. PRISM is a musical and visual creation, a mix of live electro and cine-concert which is spatialised and edited in real time. A hexagonal screen is set up on stage around artist 9th cloud, shutting him in as well as opening him up to his own inspirations. You can see it live at Maintenant Festival in Rennes, France in October, alongside another SHAPE artist Masayoshi Fujita. Masayoshi Fujita is a Japanese vibraphonist and composer based in Berlin. Masayoshi first learned how to play the drums, followed by extensive vibraphone training to craft and play his own compositions. Marta Heberle is an artist and theorist fascinated by transhumanism and the idea of transgressing and transcending the human. SHAPE is supported by the EU's Creative Europe programme.
