nuum FM:MF muun
Radio residency developed at and supported by Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee radio.
Part1: nuum FM
nuum FM, first part of residency reimagines the music produced during the HARDCORE CONTINUUM into a soundwalk through the allies of Ayia Napa.
Part2: MF muun: a dj archeology
MF nuum: a dj archeology, was a backspin on the opening work nuum FM. Here I abstracted radio’s “transmission-reception” operation in a dual form: its political character in the history of pirate radio and its ecological role, as an proto-radar form, in bat’s echolocation. Though a “dj archeology” approach that digs through discogs’ release catalogues and treats radio waves as a disseminated site for sonic excavation, all these drawn lines and references run in parallel to the sonar echoes of military radar and bats, both serving as navigational devices that help one make sense of their vicinity. In the overlayered soundscape of field recordings and rave culture’s sonic semiotics, MF nuum ultimately frames a certain dialectics between radio infrastructures and cultural hegemony and highlights the complexities of the diasporic production of culture.
