About Us

Isotopica is an experimental radio series with each episode having a unique theme and flavour, starting off at point A and hopefully, ending up in another alphabet altogether. Ingredients are a mixture of sonic essays, experimental sound and music, psychogeographic and notional detours, special guests, field and location recordings, interviews, conversations, critical analysis, plus Gallery installation works, and all sprinkled with cultural marxist toppings. Uncertain terms and conditions may apply.

The Train Rolls On Chris Marker Le Train En Marche (1971) First the eye, then the cinema, which prints the look…. A stunned episodepost tory election landslide,in which we listen simultaneously,to both the French and English soundtracks,of Chris Marker'sLe Train En Marche,in an attemptperhaps,to revisit,and evenfind a route back to,the utopiandreamsand projectsof both early and latetwentieth century cultural marxism. …the train of revolution, the train of history has not lacked reverse signals and switched points but the biggest mistake one could make was to believe that it had come to a halt. “If Chris asked you to do something you did it: There was no question”, recalls Marc Karlin in one of his last interviews before his death in 1999. ‘Chris’, needless to say, was Chris Marker, Karlin’s friend who he called ‘le maitre’. The task was to provide an English version of Marker’s recent film Le train en marche (1971) – a celebration of the Soviet era filmmaker Alexander Med...

Unprepared Piano stories

From Chile to Chatham both haunted and alive. Some field recordings and ambient sounds from summer 2019. A zoom recorder balanced just below the pendulum of an ancient yet working grandfather clock in a central room of a venerable Kent House, picks up the steady yet illusory passage of time along with snippets of family life and conversations. We feature the story of a piano in Chile played by spirits, after stumbling across Julian*s evocation of those ghosts on an old detuned upright in a lost bedroom, bringing us perhaps to consider the psychogeography of an unprepared piano. Peter Suchin riffs on the semiotics of image via Roland Barthes, and an endless vortex filling of a narrow boat water tank punctuates a summer day on the last pirate island of London (as far as we know), as the clock tic toc tic tocs us along to almost certain extinction, and we wonder how to, or even if to, make art, as time is undeniably running out. One way in to the old kent house A zoom recorder balanced...

VOCALISplaces emphasis on giving voice in many forms; sharing ideas, drawing on collective memory and Beaconsfield’s long engagement with text, time-based/live art, performance and sound.Informal and open, Vocalis happens in Beaconsfield’s intimate cafe space - where food and fluids mix with electrical impulses and vocalised concepts. Michael Curran MC Jeroen van Dooren explores divided subjectivities in the company of performing rabbits Jefford Horrigan performs a very personal ritual within a bespoke sculptural assemblage that is jealous of painting Tara Fatehi Irani mishandles an archive from Tehran through photographic images, dance, spoken word and digital media Liming Lin aspires to be a symbol – that everyone looks up to Niamh Roberts delivers a love story especially penned for Vocalis.

extinction or rebellion, rebellion or extinction….THIS IS NOT A DRILL!

Multilingual, multifaceted, Intended, Multiplex, Zoe Zakovski

A play on words Zoe Zarkovsi and Simon Tyszko engage in Word play or wordplay (also: play-on-words) being a literary technique and a form of wit in which words used become the main subject of the work, primarily for the purpose of intended effect or amusement. Examples of word play include puns, phonetic mix-ups such as spoonerisms, obscure words and meanings, clever rhetorical excursions, oddly formed sentences, double entendres, and telling character names (such as in the play The Importance of Being Earnest, Ernest being a given name that sounds exactly like the adjective earnest).Word play is quite common in oral cultures as a method of reinforcing meaning. Examples of text-based (orthographic) word play are found in languages with or without alphabet-based scripts; for example, see homophoerate our accompanying nic puns in Mandarin Chinese. Deleuze and food, time and chance, combine witha collection of pure data patches that algorithmically generate our accompanying soundtrack,...

A convivial conversation with a cat on a bike as the crane cries

This particular episode revolves around a trip to the vet with Idoru the cat, during which we share a delightful conversation around topics of the day. Our cycling conversation perfectly sets the scene for a program approaching the cutting edges oftrans-speciesart research, featuring tracks from a new album entitled'Crane Cries', which revolves around a live recording emulating the sounds and intentions of cranes through string improvisation and unusual techniques, by the quartet of Estonian violinist Elo Masing, German violinist Dietrich Petzold, Portuguese violist and cellist Ernesto and Guilherme Rodrigues, who name each of the 8 tracks after thebehaviourof cranes, forming a flock, migration, fighting, ritual dancing, and nesting. This conflation of the chat with a cat on a bicycle, and the avian themed avant guard music is purely coincidental, and only came about when isotopicee Elo Masing sent this latest release hot off the presses from Berlin, which is available as a limited ...
