Playlist: Edyta Jarząb - Teach Yourself to Fly

An audios­phere for head­phone lis­ten­ing, com­bin­ing sev­er­al exer­cis­es and son­ic med­i­ta­tions with the impres­sions of mov­ing, trav­el­ling. Echoes of Pauline Oliveros’ Teach Yourself to Fly, ded­i­cat­ed to the pilot Amelia Earhart (“Ear-Heart”).

Sajjra Xhrs Galarreta - Melismas (voic­es mod­u­lat­ed by Anatolian landscapes)

From the dif­fer­ent minarets of Demre (Antalya), muezzins sing the same ​“Ezan” simul­ta­ne­ous­ly with a spon­ta­neous time lag between the singing of each oth­er. On some hills and roads these time lags can be per­ceived as an out-of-tune and arrhyth­mic canon mod­u­lat­ed by the moun­tain­ous land­scape. The melis­mas seem to be in mor­phic res­o­nance with the move­ment of a sea that accom­pa­nies them, roar­ing from the erod­ed mar­ble stones. Artist’s website :

Tuned Circuits, the 2021 edi­tion of Oscillation Festival, bor­rows its title from Daphne Oram, the ear­ly elec­tron­ic com­pos­er and instru­ment inven­tor. In Oram’s work and writ­ing we glimpse the pos­si­bil­i­ty of a par­al­lel between elec­tron­ic and bio­log­i­cal cir­cuits, and a desire to per­ceive phe­nom­e­na simul­ta­ne­ous­ly from var­i­ous sides. More broad­ly, the fes­ti­val looks at prac­tices and phe­nom­e­na of tun­ing. Tuning is a fun­da­ment of music mak­ing. To think in terms of tun­ing is to think in terms of rela­tions; of one thing com­ing into con­so­nance or dis­so­nance with anoth­er, of one thing colour­ing and affect­ing anoth­er. It is also to think in terms of time, since tun­ing requires a process of con­stant cal­i­bra­tion: what is now in tune will not stay that way.
