Lumpen Station is back with a program of live radio broadcasts from PRAXIS in Basel September 16. – 25. 2021.
This series of live radio broadcasts also marks the beginning of a collaboration with LapTopRadiø, with whom we will share the “webwaves”.
We have chosen as the totem of this series of broadcasts, the Indonesian volcano Tambora, whose eruption in 1815 caused climate change on a global scale. Naturally we do not wish to plunge the world into another cataclysm, but this volcano seems to us, to represent well the researches we’re committed with the concept of radio art: from a place of eruption, the effects of the creations that we broadcast, can be felt at a distance and for a long time.
As a mirror to these reflections, the laptopradio.org team will be interested in the planet Vulcan, which was studied by the scientific community until Einstein demonstrated that it did not exist.
In short, whether it is to receive the overflowing energy of an earthly volcano or the signal from a hypothetical planet Vulcan, the creations of the artists we are working with, will be received directly from the epicentre at Bäumleingasse 9, in a beach-like atmosphere where it will be possible to drift comfortably during the sound eruptions.
If you are not in the area you can follow the broadcasts live from lumpenstation.art or laptopradio.org
When the magma is still hot and our bodies are still shaking, it will be possible to listen to all archives of Sweets tunes from Tambora on podcasts and possibly measure the long-term consequences.
