Shruti Loops is a live performance by Jean-Philippe Renoult ...
Autumn is with us… Radiophrenia has laid its head to rest for another year whilst Radio Revolten in Halle continues to gather crowds of radio art illuminati from the four corners of the aether.
We are delighted to have taken part in both, with a new commissioned sound work for Radiophrenia, 'What You See', and a brand new BLUE radio installation, 'The HUM' created specially for Radio Revolten and Das Grosse Rauchen : The Metamorphosis of Radio exhibition, visible to all until the end of October 2016.
Radio Space is the most definitely The Place.
Shruti Loops is a new live performance by Jean-Philippe Renoult where polyphonic harmonium drone sounds made with a three octave ‘shruti box’ (a traditional instrument from north India) are artfully re-interpreted with prepared tape loops plundered from a wide variety of 20th century musical folklores, from vintage pop, musicals, to gospel and lost country classics. By associating them with the breathy, hoarse, and sometimes insistent sound of the shruti box, old forgotten favourites take on a new millennial hue.
