(radio piece for radia_s30); Cerebro 
more info;
Cerebro is the result of the meeting between Nathalie Blanc, geograph-poet andSemoNO!LinA/Amaury Bourget, musician. During 2008/09, they worked together and composed 3 pieces with the texts written and read by Nathalie Blanc.
Acrobatic science fiction, this text tempts to cavort in limbo of a little bit atmospheric reflection, but which try to exhaust the detail of what is expressed here exactly, that is to say the future, our future…
These pieces are written to be live played, what the duet will make in particular for the Poetry international biennial event in Val-de-Marne, in 2009.
As suggested by JetFM, the project has been “updated” in a version which becomes trilingual (French, Portuguese, English) and accomodated musically.

Out come the wolves is the second sound piece of Nicolas Perret and Cédric Anglaret’s project The four seasons of Paanjärvi in which, since 2009, they focus on the soundscape of the small russian village of Paanajärvi. Isolated in the thick primary forest of oriental Karelia, Paanajärvi has somehow fallen out of the time. Its inhabitants, the last custodians of the disappearing Karelian culture, live a tough life that is strongly bond to the nature surrounding them.
Winters are harsh in Paanajärvi. At this latitude, the sun doesn’t show much and temperatures remain way below freezing for many months. As winter progresses food gets rare for the wolves. Out of the forest they approach the village at night to attack dogs, that the villagers try to protect by all means. As long as dogs are barking the wolves are still far; once they are silent they are nearby. In the winter of 2012, 23 dogs were eaten by the wolves in Paanajärvi.
Following Out come the wolves, a 6 minutes addition sheds light on the Man who eats dogs.
The four seasons of Paanjärvi is supported by SCAM, Défi Jeune, the Juminkeko Foundation and Radio Grenouille.
In 2007 Nicolas Perret and Cédric Anglaret have joined their practice of sound, documentary and music in a common project of collection, creation and diffusion. Since they work under the name La danse de l’ours.

Er ging iets mis bij de Concertzender vorige week! Vandaar dat de eerste aflevering van Dr Klangendum vandaag -9 juli- wordt uitgezonden.

 Eerste aflevering Dr Klangendum, woensdag 9 juli 00.00 uur, Concertzender

Dr klangendum 1 / 9 juli 2013 Dr Klangendum

Dr Klangendum is een programma over maar voornamelijk vol radiofonie, geluidskunst en andere audio-non-visuele misverstanden en vondsten (bedoelt U Fondsen ?). De makers zijn Henk Klangendum Bakker en Lukas Klangendum Simonis, voormalige werknemers- en gevers van de WORM Studio te Rotterdam waar ze radio-programma’s als Radio Worm en de Hørspil Reeks (via VPRO’s Cafe Sonore, nu genomineerd voor de guillotine) de wereld instuurden, en de voormalige CEM studio beheerden. De studio bestaat nog steeds, de activiteiten bestaan ook nog steeds (behalve genoemde ook nog het organiseren van residencies, workshops en eductatie-projecten, het doen van podium producties en het organiseren van experimentele & improv concerten) maar de Worm Studio heeft zich inmiddels afgescheiden van WORM en heet nu Stichting Klangendum… De samenwerking met WORM gaat wel door in de vorm van gezamenlijke producties en ook de locatie van de studio blijft (voorlopig?) dezelfde; in het WORM gebouw.

Dr Klangendum zal geen sleur van een radioprogramma worden… We kunnen niet zo goed tegen de regelmaat van een vast format en iedere keer weer de lijst afwerken… Een vorm van vastigheid is echter onvermijdelijk en die zal bestaan aan een keur van vaste medewerkers (oa. Adam Bohman, Vincent Denieul, Sara Pinheiro, eva.) en een rubriek in samenwerking met het Radia network (zie; waarin iedere week een kunstradio productie zal worden gepresenteerd door een van de leden (de producties duren steevast 28 minuten).  Verder staan er een aantal specials op stapel over geluidskunstenaars die we goed vinden, zullen er regelmatig radiofonische hoorspelen worden vertoond (een voortzetting van onze Hørspil Reeks, die nog tot as. januari bij cafe sonore loopt), hebben we een ‘perverse animals’ reeks in de maak en zijn er ook vergevorderde plannen voor radiofonische (weer dat woord, zie het als een eufemisme voor ‘psychedelisch in onbegrepen zin’) documentaires.

Reacties worden op prijs gesteld, bijdrages ook. Email ons;

Extra Info;
 Ultrasonic city by Wendy Van Wynsberghe (Radio Panik)
“What do you hear in the city? What sounds are only perceptible in the ultrasonic realm, where bats and crickets communicate? Sounds which are so high, our human ears cannot perceive them. This acoustic world becomes audible in Ultrasonic City and they get their place in the sounds of the city and the world.
The urban sound world is quite dense. By extracting the ultrasound I wanted to reveal a sonic universe or even add another layer to the field recordings. When you hear only the ultrasonic layer of the city, you hear a place devoid of human voices. They simply do not reach that high. Some very quiet sounds get enhanced, such as rubbing your fingers together, frottements in French. In a park at sunset you hear the foraging bats, whilst at the same time, our human ears only register ducks, planes and other humans. A swimming pool gets reduced to splashes, you do not hear the children shriek nor play. Plastic, metal, water all produce ultrasounds.
With the help of ACSR, I was able to record the same place in the city ultrasonically and with high quality “normal” microphones. This revealing/unravelling/hiding of layers of sound I want to present in this documentary.

(lukas also promised to put a mix together, if he does, we’ll post it here as well).

Kim Fowley & Worm All-Stars Band

On the 19th of april The WORM ALL-STARS BAND backed up Kim Fowley. In this incarnation the band was; Peter Graute, Wim Ver A, Lukas Simonis on guitars, Florian Veenhuis on bass and Hajo Doorn on drums. We practised an hour or so in the afternoon with Kim and his Cane (and his dominatrix Snow Mercy) and played quite a long set, only disturbed by the fire-alarm going off (at the end of the song ‘My pussy’s on fire!’).

Peter Bruyn did a nice interview on that occasion and there’s also some stuff about the music. SEE HERE . (it’s in dutch).
