ANNA FRIZ / KONRAD KORABIEWSKI  // “Telefunken Twins”, a radiophonic piece. Sound installation / performance

 

Two performance works for multi-channel radio, featuring two vintage Telefunken Bajazzo radio/cassette decks, multiple micro-FM transmitters, and a chorus of supporting radio receivers. The artists employ lo-fi instruments, spectral monitoring, and intricate feedback systems to craft an expressive and intimate world from the sensuality of signal and noise.

By working with small-scale circuits of transmission in performance, Friz and Korabiewski seek 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.

 

Anna Friz and Konrad Korabiewski are running the independent arts organization Skálar –Centre for Sound Art and Experimental Music, which acts as both an artist collective and a curatorial platform, and produces a nomadic festival and international exchanges.

Anna Friz  is a Canadian sound and radio artist currently based in Berlin. She specializes in multi-channel transmission systems for installation, performance, and broadcast, where radio is the source, subject and medium of the work.

Polish | Danish | Iceladic Konrad Korabiewski (1978), is s an award-winning multimedia artist, currently in the Berliner Künstlerprogramm des DAAD residency.

As a sound-artist, composer and media artist, Konrad Korabiewski has a minimalist, yet detail-oriented unconventional and experimental artistic approach, characterized by a marked tendency to transgress various genres and media.

Focused on absorption, content and substance of art rather than a certain media, he experiments and develops new possibilities for sensing and expressing philosophical views and artistic ideologies. His pioneering and prize awarded crossover, interactive art-book project Affected As Only A Human Being Can Be (2010) as been exhibited and performed last year at Liebig12. more under: nicelittlestatic.com/aboutkonradkorabiewski.blog.com
