RADIO NOISE INTERFERENCES COLLECTIVE - JULIEN OTTAVI (2010)

radio_noise_interference_collective.resized.jpg

Based on radio hacking devices, Radio Noise Interferences Collective extracts the essence of radio waves through unexpected revelations of their micro-activities. The combination of electricity and electromagnetic resonances, through the interaction of bodies and machinic connections, reveals the invisible fluidity within a noise-cloud. The participant/performers are picked at random at the beginning of the Live Performance. The Performers are asked to interpret a noise-cloud, all acting as a modulation of the same organism, decoding and recoding the universe in one movement. Detuning the radio frequency, playing with the fundamental lights of our life, interlayering of world sounds and using flesh to connect to an alternate sound world.

score / direction for the performers :

1- Get a hacked radio device

2- Produce some radio interferences within the cloud of noise

3- Think of your body before sound

4- Play like you are the movement of radio waves

RADIO TRANSARCHITECTURE - JULIEN OTTAVI RADIO ART RESEARCH (2007 - 2009)

principle : transform the street of the gallery into a radio transmission spiral. Every shops and every part of this ancient gallery & bookshop street mutate into radio waves generators, the people passing through became interferences to finally change resonant property of the transmissions.

performance / action (every 30min): walking in the streets performers called a number transfered to the radio transmitter. While the performers tell what going around them, eventually broadcast sounds from where they are, a program transform and mix the ensemble to be sent back to the street through radio waves.

Radio art installation - Arc & Senan/FR - 2008

arcsenanradio3.1.jpg

Behind the scene, radio transmitters and receivers are playing together in a radio feedback system modulated by the hyper surveillance architecture. The main principle of this installation was to reverse the panopticum situation (half circle centered surveillance) through airwaves and feedback changing the perspective of the viewer / listener moving around and escaping the surveillance, the frequencies generated are impossible to control in this sense.
