Archipel Stations / Radio Otherwise, 31.01.2023, CTM VORSPIEL

Our next 5th Tuesday long FM Broadcast online and on FM in Berlin 88,4 and Potsdam 90,7 is happening on 31.01.23 between 12:00 until 06:00 of the following day. This time we will be “stationing” the studio from Freies Radio Berlin Brandenburg at Haus der Statistik in the center of Berlin. We will be live between 12:00 and 19:00 and anyone is welcome to come by, there will be a hangout area outside of the studio with a fire pit and Gluhwein.

This time we house again experimentations by Radio Otherwise, an offshoot artistic research project initiated by Kate Donovan and Monai the Paula Antunes involving a vast network of radio enthusiasts, exploring the plurality of experiences present in radio-making in connection to ecological thinking. Thinking and doing radio otherwise means focussing beyond purely anthropogenic transmissions, recognising relationality within the spectrum of more-than-human radio ecologies.

Together with Radio Otherwise, the program will welcome contributions from and conversations with Eleni-Ira Panourgia, Shintaro Miyazaki, Jasmina Al-Qaisi, Budhaditya Chattopadhyay, Carla J. Maier, Nicole L'Huillier, Ela Spalding, the Shortwave Collective, Anais-karenin & Tatsuro Murakami, Marina Resende Santos, Marianne Jacquet, Antye Guenther, Sarah Reva Mohr, Niko de Paula Lefort, Ay Lak, Luka Toyboy, S4NTP, radio_mix_kassette and Mila Cloud.

Coexist (side A). 17 Min

“coexist” is a sound piece conceived for the installation “(un)visual latency”. Using a pre-colonial South American technique, the medicinal substances of three herbs were extracted and transformed into sounds. Using the artist's music theory, codes representing photosynthesis, color, and associated minerals of each plant were decoded into a sequence of music notes, composing three different tracks. A fourth sound layer is added to that by transforming the word “coexist” into a sound.

Common Grounds. EN/FR 60 Min

Archipel Editions is kicking off a series of live broadcasts / recordings, Common Grounds, with Chaosmos, a solo for acoustic guitar, voice and microFM radio ecosystem by Archipel Stations resident Niko de Paula Lefort.
Whether you listen or not, what does it matter to me?
Whoever passes by, whether they listen or pass by, what does it matter to me?
If you listened to the wind, when it blows in the beech trees and bellow in the air;
If you know how to listen to the wind, when it leads its clouds like great sea birds, and when it bellowed in the air with its throat of frost;
if you have sometimes heard the fountain and the river and the leaf cry, the whisper of the ripe grass in the meadows,
you may know what I have to say.
You already know it.

Island of tears. 60 Min

"Island of tears" is the name of monument in Minsk commemorates the Soviet soldiers from Belarus who died in the long war with Afghanistan in the 1970s. It's also the way I see my country nowadays - where the island is the whole county that is isolated and frozen in time, where traditional culture and language is the object of discrimination, as it is associated with the expression of political views. Traditional songs were given to me by ethnographer Regina Gamzovich and ethno group "Tradicyaja" <3 .In addition to the traditional songs, the DJ set includes sounds from factories, trains, conversations, collected in Belarus or found on It's my way to come back there and also manifest all the beautiful and strong people li(o)ving there.

Shit Platypus Says. EN, 83 Min.

Ep. 53: The Elections & the Left, and Platypus Review # 152 Shit Platypus Says (SPS) is a podcast dedicated to reflecting on the current state of politics and culture in the post-Trump era. SPS takes its name from Platypus: a political organisation dedicated to education on the history of the Left and ultimately to the reconstitution of the Left internationally. We take our name from the strange egg-laying duck-billed mammal that seems to make no sense to natural history, whose characteristics make it hard to categorise. Like the Australian animal, Platypus brings disparate perspectives that usually would seem to not belong together. Platypus’s education provides a way of understanding the world -- history, politics and culture -- a way of providing a plausible explanation for what exists from a Left-centric point of view. In order to make sense of the present, amidst the crisis of Neoliberalism, we find it necessary to acknowledge the historical failure of Marxism and decline of the Left in the 20th century, to investigate the various positions on the Left, and to evaluate their saliency for an emancipatory politics of the present.
In the first part of this episode, Lisa & Rebekah are joined by members, Laurie R. & Jasper to talk about how Platypus has captured the relationship between the Left & the elections. They have gone into the archives of the Platypus Affiliated Society, and have asked how our work can help us to think about these inflection points on the Left across the elections, namely, 2008 (Obama); 2016 (Brexit; Trump; AfD); 2020 (Trump & Biden, Corbyn & Boris); and the coming 2024 election. In the second segment, Pamela sits down with the Platypus Review Editor-in-Chief, Lou S., to discuss what is in the Dec 2022—Jan 2023 issue, including the interview with Vivek Chibber, his perspectives on ideology, the task of the Left today, and the DSA & the elections, as well as a book review of Chibber's book by Russell Jacoby, and the interview with Enzo Traverso.

Telematic Walks. EN 40 Min

"Telematic walks" are walks guided by Marina Resende Santos in a location, and followed by listeners in their own places. In this way, listeners walk in the narrator's neighbourhood and experience their soundscape and urban form, while making unusual paths in their own space and experiencing more acutely its barriers, segregation, social composition. The work has to do as much with urban practice as with authority and our (un)willingness to surrender it to another consciousness. This episode with be conducted from the premises of Haus der Statistik

The Beheading of the Fruit Fly (How will I know if you are truly a sentient being?). EN 15 Min

THE BEHEADING OF THE FRUIT FLY (How will I know if you are truly a sentient being?) is made of electromagnetic sound emissions of JUQUEEN, initially the fifth most powerful supercomputer in the world, located at the Forschungszentrum Jülich in Germany. Every operating computer radiates electromagnetic emission in relation to the computational tasks it is processing. Not every computer, however, turns out to be such a fantastic sound machine.

Water-drought patterns. 12 Min

The piece 'Water-drought patters' (2023) premiered today on Radio Otherwise presents a sound speculation about future environments transitioning from water to drought conditions. Sound recordings of impacts on surfaces and plants, water sounds and voices of organisms are processed and structured to develop alternative and imaginary patterns and listening perspectives. An interplay between higher-pitched textures and more sustained sounds express forces, flows and gestures, micro and macro appreciations of change.
