Playlist: Anna Steiden - Tuned Visions (Talk about Daphne Oram) / Maika Garnica - From Bow to Ear
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.
Oscillation — Tuned Circuits takes place over 4 days as a live broadcast from MILL, Brussels and additional locations. The festival will mix talks, performances and works for radio. Each day focusses on a sub-thematic: attuning, as a movement of convergence; feedback, as a circular movement which amplifies itself; detuning, as a movement of unlearning and a condition for regeneration. The opening evening we dedicate to Daphne Oram, whose research thematic we take as our own: “to follow curiosities without flinching”.
Oscillation Festival is a project by Q‑O2 werkplaats. This edition is hosted by MILL with the support of Needcompany, the Vlaamse Gemeenschap, the Vlaamse Gemeenschapscommissie, among others.
