The Weirding Module
with Nathan Gray
Speech and the voice in contemporary art and experimental music.
This episode deals with Mark Fisher's book The Weird and The Eerie, I'll play some of the musical and literary references as well as some works that I think express his idea that there is something inherently eerie about the acousmatic experience.
Weirding Module #7 - Didactic Nonsense
This edition is framed by Agnes Scherer's didactic operetta The Teacher and deals with works that seemingly set out to educate and explain but obscure, obfuscate, complexify and tangentialise knowledge into nonsense.
Weirding Module #6 - Phantom Words
An exploration of some of Diana Deutsch's audio illusions. Featuring Deutsch herself, Steve Reich, Lily Greenham, Ron Kuivila, Neil Mills, Karl Holmqvist, Chris Burden and John C. Lilley: the psychotherapist / psychonaut / dolphin communication researcher who invented the flotation tank.
Weirding Module #5 - Dangerous Do Not Play
In 2006 the researcher Thomas Knoefel found a 78 record at the Society for Psychical Research with the words "Dangerous, do not play" written on it. Its contents inspired a work by the artist Erik Bünger which forms the starting point for this edition.
