Fragrances and frequencies, sounds and scents, particles and perfumes: Datscha Radio will take one step further in its radio-sensory exploration of the nightly garden. How may scents translate into radio?

Fragrances and frequencies both travel the air. They are medium and message in one, they reach out to our senses and they invoke reactions, signals, encounters. They permeate the presence as much as they are a fleeting experience. In this night by the end of July, Datscha Radio will investigate the ephemeral and perceptive nature of scents but also their function as communication agents between the worlds of the human and non-human.

At this point in time we are just starting to prepare:

  • the date is set but not yet fully confirmed
  • – an Open Call might come up to invite artists to share their scent-based composition with us
  • – or come to the Datscha garden to perform live
  • stay tuned to learn more!

Broadcasting time: From sunset to sunrise.

There was still light in the sky when we started the broadcast. Earlier, while setting up, the sun shone onto the veranda’s railing, where a little stove had been placed, and bottles of wine, and cheese and ladybugs and maybugs made out of chocolate. Leonie Roessler had arrived the long way from Den Haag carrying her sampler and other gear with her. We chatted… and then, precisely at 20:32 with the sun setting and dusk sneaking out of the darker corners of the garden onto the lawns, the moment came to go on air.

Leonie Roessler setting up

Our opening piece was a 16th century madrigal by the composer Thomas Weelkes, sung by the Berlin choir „Singlust“ and adequately titled „The Nightingale“. Written for soprano, alt and baritone, the three strands of melody hovered and danced in the evening air, and carried the tune along with the scent of the booming lilacs over the garden fence and beyond to the neighboring allotment gardens of the „Kolonie Britzer Wiesen“. Because this time, Datscha Radio’s iterations of Night gardening“ take place each in a different Berlin garden, and Kate Donovan’s „Datscha“ location was already know for its abundant nightingale population.

…with the sun still shining.

From that moment, nine hours of joyous radio making evolved. During and in between the gigs we sipped champagne (in celebration of the recently won prize for the project) and hot tea, and shared what we knew about this famous bird, starting with an introduction by Kate about the first nightingale & music recording ever made in war time London with Beatrice Harrison playing the cello.

Leonie’s contribution was a soundscape she exclusively composed for this evening. „Copper and Song“ was based on her visit to Isfahan in Iran, where she visited the bazar of the copper smiths and found that almost each of them had a cage with a nightingale to accompany his hammering. In our later talk we wondered why as it might not be nice at all for the birds to live with so much noise, and we mused about the accidental content found in field recordings destined to serve an originally very different purpose.

Artists and Guests

Meanwhile, curious garden neighbors visited us, Kassia Justka and Peggy Sylopp surfaced as surprise guests, Rosanne Lovell entered the garden with her laptop and a clarinet, and Walter Schulte appeared with two very impressive looking boxes that revealed their mesmerizingly blinking contents shortly after.

JD Zazie and Matt Pogo

JD Zazie and Mat Pogo materialized out of the dark and began to set up their gear. The original schedule had Niki Matita and Walter Schultze placed at that slot, yet, Schulze’s synth and Niki Matita’s performance reading required preparation time…
„Domestic Nightingale“ by JD Zazie and Mat Pogo was based on samples of nightingale songs that became modified, remixed, accelerated and decelerated. Patterns appeared and disappeared like vortexes in a fast flowing brook: A superb performance!

In it a nightingale is hiding.

Secret-en-plein-aire by Walter Schulze and Niki Matita proved to be a two-part performance. Schulze’s synthesizers kept wildly blinking while processing a set of Berlin nightingale field recordings. As far as I understood from Niki Matita he used just the signal of the envelope curves to modulate the tones… and the machine warbled and twittered and sang, assisted by Niki’s comments and experimental button pressing. For her text „Die Nachtigall vs. der Nachtigall“ she had prepared her own vocal nest, including a soprano nightingale interpretation from the 30s.

tLukatoyboy’s 7″ bird vinyl collection

Lukatoyboy came on spontaneous invitation of Ms Matika after they met in the street a couple of days before or so, and brought a portable turntable and two walkie-talkies with him. As a true surprise guest he was zero surprised about the night’s theme and extracted at least a dozen of 7 inch bird sound and song singles out of his bags. His performance was very versatile: The records were scratched and played while a little dictaphone served as a loop machine. Such adventurous sequences were created – with bird songs and the interspersed voices of naturalists and birdwatchers. After that, Niki Matita took on a role as expedition leader on walkie talkie, directing Lukatoyboy (other walkie talkie) and JD Zazie (mic on a long cable) out into the garden and beyond to chase the sounds of the nightly garden colony.

Rosanna Lovell

As temperatures dropped close to 12 degrees (yet felt below that) we and the artists kept pulling over layer after layer of warm clothes: Tights, jumpers, vests, hats and hoodies (with red ears attached). Radio adrenaline kept us going. Rosanna Lovell was the last artist to perform live, and she brought along with her an exquisitely researched choice of Oliver Messiaen’s compositions that he derived from bird song. Theme of our talk was „Bird Song and Notation, followed by a clarinet interpretation of a nightingale score I had conceived of for a Datscha Radio 14 event (the instrument had to get warmed up by being tucked under her jacket before playing… )
After having listened to so many diverse, field recording based and electronically processed/transformed, nightingale song iterations we found it remarkable how the „essence“ of the bird’s melodic trills, pauses and whistles stayed all through those different interpretations.

Leonie and JD Zazie

Midnight long past, we turned to talks and compositions Kate and I had managed to assemble in the fore field: The interview with the artist David Rothenberg was framed by two of his works where he was playing along to Berlin Nightingales in different parks, and followed by a composition by Felicity Morgan who is scheduled to join him in one of his upcoming presentations from May 8 to May 16 (May 16 with Felicity at the Zabriskie Bookstore in Berlin then). Udo Noll had contributed an „eclectic mix“ of nightingale field recordings drawn from his aporee.org archives that formed part of an extensive listening session to still other field recordings – one of them recorded in despair for want of sleep by a Charlottenburg resident artist.

Herr Schulze and Lukatoyboy

The wee hours of the morning had come, a light rain had settled in and outside in a flowerpot rested a microphone under an umbrella to pick up the surrounding sounds of the Britzer Wiesen garden night. When we turned up a volume distant bird calls mingled with the sound of even more distant traffic and mysterious mumbling noises accompanied by the resonant bouncing of rain drops on the umbrella skin. The garden has gone quite, the artists had left, our press lady Helen had withdrawn to a bed inside. Time for telling stories… and reading poems… and another take of the nightingale choir and more musings on the bird’s music. Who ever was still awake then had a chance to listen to Keats’ „Ode to a nightingale“ (bilingual), the terrible story of Philomela by Ovid, the „Rose and the Nightingale“ by Oscar Wilde, just to name a few.

Umbrella at 4:30 with microphone

…Around 4:30 the garden started to wake up again: the song of the nightingales mixed with the good morning croaks of a flock of crows and the cooing of wood pigeons and the clouds’ grey became lighter. At 5 am we noticed our voices and minds had become really slow…. a good idea to take refuge to one of Niki Matita’s nightingale song collections of which she had several ones prepared. Jazzy tunes, bird tangos and classical interpretations portioned to present another range of lusciana songs in popular (and not so popular) music.
At 5:27 we noticed we’d almost made it! There was just enough time for a quick preview on Datscha Radio’s second iteration of „Night Gardening“ about the „Perfumes of the Night“ and another take of Thomas Weelkes amazing piece sung by the Singlust choir. Snap, crackle and gone was the „Night of the Nightingales“…

Just then, a nightingale landed on a bush next to the veranda and started to warble with all of its voice strength… and we listened on…

Dear All, for today we have finished gardening … and relax a bit. Nine nightly hours filled with nightingale songs and singings, light rain, chatter, food and drink and a truly overwhelming line-up of artists! It was great – and yes, the broadcast will soon be available online and also a picture gallery. Datscha Radio wants to thank you all:

Andrea Eckhardt and the choir Singlust, Leonie Roessler, Rosanna Lovell, Martin Schulze, JD Zazie and Mat Pogo, David Rothenberg, Felicity Mangan, Katt Hernandez, Udo Noll and Lukatoyboy.

P.S. The bird in the picture is a real Britzer-Meadow Nightingale and bade our goodbyes as we carried our luggage back into the streets of the city

The night is, far more than the day, a sphere of transmission. Fragrances and odours are perceived more strongly, the ear is sharpened, the superiority of the visual recedes.

Since its inception, Datscha Radio has paid special attention to the night. We have broadcast pieces by selected composers and sound artists and, in the “Surprises de Minuit”, conducted interviews, which would never have materialized in the hustle and bustle of the day.

In the three-part event series NACHTGÄRTNERN [NIGHT GARDENING], Datscha Radio intends to fill the living space of the night in a synaesthetic and radiophonic way.
The locations will be three different gardens in Berlin, where we will make radio. We will broadcast live, from exactly sunset to sunrise. (Depending upon transmission date, the transmitting time will vary by around one to two hours.)

I The Night of the Nightingales (April 30th)
Datscha Radio explores the essence of the night on the first evening with a focus on the nightingale (Luscinia megarhynchos). The Date is expected to be April 30th, 20.32 – 5:33, May 1st, 2019.

More information in due course.

The generation of waste is the most distinctive trait of human civilization, and it is increasingly threatening the environment we depend on. Datscha Radio’s final broadcast presented once more a wide spectrum of artists and participants, of tales and talks, of sonic transmissions and subterranean secrets.

The studio had to move that day

Starting with Taiwan’s probably best known tune, “For Elise” by Beethoven, that is being used as the “trash car anthem” we pondered over the benefits of Taiwan’s municipal garbage collecting system. Because, unlike in Europe, there are no bins in the backyards and there are only very few public waste bins to be found in the streets. Instead, on 5 out of 7 days a week, trash cars roam the streets under the wail of this popular tune and signalling by this that it is time to take the trash out _ already sorted into paper, plastic, food leftovers and other.

Margaret Shiu has a lot of experience to share… (photo: THAV)

Among other things, it was also pointed out by Margaret Shiu (Bamboo Curtain Studio) how this mode of trash collection exerts a considerable influence onto neighbourly relations: “It is also a time to meet your neighbour, a chance to address personal affairs, to get to know the rhythms of your environment”.

JK Wang had prepared himself well (photo: THAV)

Yet, all well meant efforts are doomed to failure if the sorting of plastic waste becomes just to complicated for the citizens. J.K. Wang with his background in engineering, explained about various kinds of plastic and the current problems of re- and down-cycling. Is plastic really so inevitable that we have to content with its (re)use as a resource? How much hygiene do we really need when it comes to the packing of vegetable and fruits?

The weather, by the way, on that day was quite horrible. It had rained for three days in a row, and because more participants than usual were expected, the Datscha Radio moved to the “Cross Gallery”. So we sat under a polyethylene roof, our feet in puddles, our jackets for most part zipped up unto our chins. True radio gardeners!

Mark van Tongeren is a sound artist and vocalist

Would you know, for example, that the Romans worshiped not only a Goddess of Waste called “Caca” but also a Goddess of the Sewers that went by the name of Cloacea? “CloaceaGardenMix” was the name of a compilation of sewer recordings made by Serge Onnen and introduced by Mark van Tongeren, and Mark’s spontaneous improvisation of an imaginative prayer song for Cloacea was a definitive highlight of this show!

Scheduled for the show were also four selected pieces submitted by the open call, yet, as the discussion among the guests was very lively, only one found its way into transmission: Chelidon Frame’s “Left Blank” which is based on (processed) recordings of empty bottles.

Yannick Dauby under the Banyan Tree

A couple of days earlier I had the occasion to make an interview with the French nature recordist Yannick Dauby. “When you bend down 200 times a day you start thinking differently about waste” was a 24 min excerpt of that talk.

With  Datscha Radio’s focus on sound art two other waste-related  topics arose. One concerned possible parallels between noise and/or audio waste and practices of collecting, recycling and/or discarding. The other dealt with the issue of noise pollution.

“Sonic Garbage Collection” was one of the pieces specifically made for this broadcast, a prerecorded improvisation by the anthropologist Gabriele de Seta and Lu Yi, the assisting artist to Fuyui Wang of Soundwatch. This was followed by a short presentation of two works by Fujui, one of them a most filigrane recording of a signal loop inside a light bulb (“Sound Bulb”). Since the artist wasn’t present at that time, Wu Tsancheng (featured in DRT’s #2 broadcast) and Mark’s musician friend Lee Szu Tung, introduced this pioneer of Asian electronic music in their own words.

Fujui Wang and Lu Yi

Fujui Wang, who is the Head of the Trans-Sonic Lab for Art and Techology Center of the  Taipei National University of the Arts, joined us about an hour later, together with Lu Yi and we were able to catch up on the planned interview.

Tsancheng and Hauyu in conversation

Meanwhile, the sun had set… and it was time for two longer pieces that would allow us to stretch our legs, have some drinks and chat. “The Dog That Licked Up A Star” by myself was a composition based on short wave snippets and field recordings made in the province of Hengchun. It came with my classic “Handbag Performance”. (Later on I was told by Lu Yi, that performers in Taiwan do never present their work in such a casual way. Rather they are expected to take on a “harsh” and dominant posture… )

Taipei lady trash…

The final piece played had been conceived of  by the composer, DJ and musician Ken Yu from Yilan. Hauyu Yang had made a short interview with him and afterwards we listened attentively to “Sea Waste 7.0”, a 17 min track based on the feeling of shock and disgust that the artist struck when he recently found himself walking among the plastic debris of the Yilan shore.

Forecast Sunday, 10th of March

On this six and last broadcast Datscha Radio Taipei will focus on the theme of waste. “Waste Culture” will discuss issues of Taiwanese waste management and recycling. It will explore our notions of garbage, trash, waste and debris. This will be done in the shape of talks and music, performance and field recording.

I am happy to welcome live at Datscha Radio, the founder and artistic director of the Bamboo Curtain Studio, Margaret Shiu, the Dutch sound and voice artist Mark Van Tongeren and the Yilan artist, farmer and performer Yang Hauyu.  Together we will explore the “wastelands” of our contemporary civilization in conjunction with an interview with the field-recording artist Yannick Dauby who describes the havoc caused by plastic waste on the shores of the Taiwan archipelago of Pescadores. Moreover, there will be a visit by the duo of Soundwatch, the artist Lu Yi and Fujui Wang one of t h e pioneers of experimental music in Asia. We’ll play two selected pieces by Fujui Wang and a compositon especially prepared for this last episode of DRT by Lu Yi and Naturalismo (aka Gabriele de Seta): Sonic Garbage Collection. :)

I am also very happy and proud to be able to include the specifically for “Waste Culture” produced piece “Sea Waste 7.0” by the Yilan composer, DJ and musician Ken Yu into the broadcast as well as selected submissions of Datscha Radio’s open call “Trash”. Last but not least, I willperform of my new radiophonic piece “The Dog That Licked Up A Star” as an integral part of this final show this will happen at some given moment after 6 pm.

As the planning for this show is still in the making, all content is subject to possible changes

Datscha Radio Taipei wants to make this afternoon special, as it is the last show in a series of six. Guests and visitors, performers, musicians, artists and friends, please come and enjoy and celebrate with us: Waste Culture!

Bring your radios, don’t bring any plastic items with you, bring instead some (recycled) Taiwanese (!) music: Make Radio not Waste J

There is a cluster of stars in the sky that is called The Seven Sisters or Pleiades. Many tales from all over the world relate to that constellation, yet Datscha Radio Taipei has its own stories to tell about the seven lady guests that created a  three-hour radio show titled “Women in the Field” on that 3rd of March in the Treasure Hill Artist Village.

Huang, Sze-Ting, instrumentalist and composer Liuqin; Huang, Hsuan-Jung (Lori), instrumentalist and composer Pipa; Hsu, Yenting, Sound art composer and installation artist; Liao, Yun-Chan, Director of Common Wealth’s Opinion channel, Ora-Ong Chakorn, publisher and editor, Claire Bushby, artist and curator and Jeng, Cheau-Wen (Berry) , Taipei Culture Foundation (TCF), the Associate Manager at Dept. of Management.

From l. to r: Liao, Yun-Chan, Huang, Hsu, Yenting, Huang Sze-Ting, and Hsuan-Jung (Lori)

Huang Lori was the first to arrive, bringing her instrument, the pipa,  with her. Shortly after Huang Sze-Ting came, carrying the liuqin, the „little sister of the pipa”, since they are similar in shape but different in size. Lori and Sze-Ting form part of the “Lost Sounds Studio”, an initiative aiming at a balanced communion of traditional and modern music styles in Taiwan.

The decoration was sprouts and radishes, but as it was raining hard, we stayed inside

Our ensuing exchange of experiences, memories and thoughts was channeled into three blocks that were framed either by live instrumentation or compositions presented by the sound and installation artist Hsu Yenting.

A wide range of topics was covered that reached from women’s role models and liberation strategies in the Asian countries  to daughter-parents relationship to the situation of female immigrant workers in Taiwan to contemporary networking modes.  Not all ladies came from Taiwan. The Thai publisher and editor Ora-Ong Chakorn shared her observations about the situation of literary women writers with us, and the Australian artist Claire Bushby, also a former resident of the THAV,  introduced her work #RT_samplr: a cross-stitch tweet project to the audience.

What did your mothers teach you?

The atmosphere was casual and intimate at the same time. Often we had to swap seats, the mike stand was moved through the room, other visitors peeped in, took photos, left or stayed on to follow the discussion.

Hsu Yenting’s piece “Laundromat” invited us to contemplate on the ambivalence (and maybe outdatedness) of this kind of symbol for women’s work. She also introduced the work of her fellow artist Sheryl Cheung, “Vitality Conversations” as one of the aims of this broadcast lay in not only introducing own compositions/texts but also the work of others.

Plum wine tastes like “falling in love”, says Sze-Ting

Our different nationalities, backgrounds and upbringing merged into an ongoing, lively conversation, on the half way spiced up by sharing a small bottle of plum wine. Among the questions that came up was also the one whether there exists a specifically “female” perspective in the arts (in Taiwan) and in which way it may differ from men’s.

The interesting answer to that was the suggestion that men may tent to be more interested in creating artworks that promise “great impact” while women’s works might focus much more about connecting to her environment “from her heart”.

Hanging out on the sofa… (l. to r. Yunchan, Sze-Ting, Claire, Ora)

We discussed this and quite a number of further topics for you to listen to on the up-coming podcast on Datscha Radio’s mix cloud archive.  

The end of the broadcast was marked by a 25-minute interview with the nature recordist and writer Laila Fan who is also the director of the Taiwan Soundscape Association which she founded in 2015 –  followed by one of her field recordings:  “Listening by the pond(Menghuan lake) in Yaminshan National Park.

Pieces played:

  • Lori Huang: Wu, Hoa-Yuan: Su— After reading Tang Poetry “Pipa Xing”  written by Poet Bai, Ju-yi in 816.
  • Sze-Ting Huang: Cuban Oregano(左手香)- Liuquin piece
  • Lost Sound Studio (Recording) Osmanthus Alley

Zheng: Yang, Yi-Wei | 古箏:楊懿惟
Zhongruan: Huang, Sze-Ting | 中阮:黃思婷
Pipa: Huang, Hsuan-Jung | 琵琶:黃璿蓉

  • Lori Huang + Sze-Ting Huang: Improvisation
  • Hsu Yenting: Laundromat (Installation excerpt); Waterland (Documentary excerpt)
  • Sheryl Cheung: Vitality Conversations

‘Vitality Conversations’ is an ongoing project that involves interviews with women who respond to the idea of blossom with tales of their own life stories. Fictional and true stories are weaved together into an abstract stream of life energy that serves as soundtrack to an installation of vased flowers illuminated by a looped performance of flowers blooming.

Preparing for the Pipa and Liuqin improvisation

According to a Polynesian legend, the Pleiades once made up a single star: the brightest in the sky. The Polynesian god Tane disliked this star, because it had bragged about its beauty. It’s said the god smashed the star into pieces, creating the Pleiades star cluster. However, we can take many different perspectives now.  There are millions of star sisters in the universe, it is up to us how we connect them into new pattern and imaginations.

Saying goodbye….

For once I don’t have to write this resume all by myself, taking the liberty to link to some facebook comments and images of the lady participants:

Claire Bushby ist hier: Treasure Hill Artist Village. 4. März um 06:28 · Taipeh ·

I had a fantastic afternoon yesterday on Datscha Radio’s “Women in the Field” episode. German sound artist, Gabi Schaffer brought together an incredibly inspirational group of women from Taiwan, Thailand, Germany and Australia. We talked challenges of being a female artist, family expectations, motherhood, sexual harassment #metoo, what our mothers/grandmothers have taught us and so much more!

廖雲章 ist mit Claire Bushby und 4 weiteren Personen unterwegs.

3. März um 21:33 ·

德國🇩🇪藝術家Gabi Schaffner 邀請我到寶藏巖的工作室參加線上直播節目 Datscharadio a garden in the air.

很好玩的在家廣播經驗,一群來自德國、台灣、泰國、澳洲,萍水相逢的女人聊著關於職涯、家庭、社會期望與性別議題(#metoo)。

一邊錄音,一邊喝茶吃東西喝梅酒,比較德國與台灣釀梅酒的作法。

Gabi對現場多數台灣女人都不太做飯很不解,我說:「因為外食比較便宜。」她皺起眉表示不解:「妳這話什麼意思?我們德國窮藝術家不能理解⋯⋯」

她下一題又問:「妳們會從自己的母親那邊繼承家傳口味的食譜嗎?」

我準備跳過這一題,一位音樂家趕緊說:「我很早就離家到外地念書所以沒有機會跟我媽學做飯。」

Gabi繼續追問:「十幾歲離家真的很年輕,妳們都很早離家念書嗎?」

現場另一位女音樂人說:「哦我沒有,」她輕鬆地說:「因為我媽也不太會做飯!」
