Narratives II

Project | Radioart (1999)
This on air- on site - on line performance consitst of ongoing acoustic reactions by Elisabeth Schimana, who is performing at Rhiz,Vienna, to delayed images, which the Canadian artist Peter Courtemanche webcasts from Western Front, Vancouver. Courtemanche is reacting to Schimanas delayed sounds webcast from Rhiz, Vienna so the live-radio-mix is also determined by the story of the telematic collaboration of the two artists.

STORIES / NARRATIVES of delayed images from Peter Courtemanche at Western Front/Vancouver/Canada of delayed sounds from Elisabeth Schimana at Rhiz/Vienna/Austria of delayed images from Canada ... an ongoing reaction to the "story" of an image, of a sound.

"I ask myself: what can I play - control - trigger by myself? A theremin to navigate through very different sounds and to modulate them. An echoplex to build and destroy digital loops. The voice to directly intervene the mixing console. I ask myself for a story - for MY story, ANY story."

ANY story refers to dadaism, futurism and radio art.

Elisabeth Schimana navigates through material from futurism and dadaism.
