Radiophonic soundscape

Released on CD "The Future Of Memory", Progetto Civitella d'Agliano 1993

Radiophonic soundscape from the "Electronic Diary" which was produced on the occasion of the 3 weeks' project "The Future of Memory" in the small Italian village Civitella d'Agliano where artists from different countries worked together to create a sound- and videoscape for the old market-place of the village.

"The rapid digitalisation of our society, which is already being reflected in culture, media and art, makes it no longer possible to think of radio as a separate medium - it has to be viewed in conjunction with other communications media. In the case of art, radio must be seen as having become just one medium among many and the "radio space" is increasingly being mixed and networked with other media and public spaces in projects by artists. Every version of "The Future of Memory" has, as part of its content, the challenge by the new technologies to traditional concepts such as "the work", "the author" or "originality". Heidi Grundmann

"Electronic Diary" is the name that Sodomka / Breindl have given a project which is a record/ catalogue of all their works in 1993, especially the work in collaboration with other artists. The "Electronic Diary" was continued during the "Progetto Civitella d' Agliano", an international art project in Italy.

Images and sound from their time in Civitella were collected, recorded, electronically and digitally treated, linked together and archived for future use - such as for their soundscape/videoscape produced for the closing event of the 1993 Progetto.

A Kunstradio program by Sodomka/Breindl entitled "Tempo Compresso/Spazio Sospeso" was broadcasted later this year. Remixed parts of that broadcast were included in the CD "The Future Of Memory", produced by Sodomka/Breindl as a "flexible broadcast master".
