Domestic Radio Orchestra – Experimental concert of transistors, on 30th August 2014 at SAWCHU at 8 pm Chloe and Lucas played a unique one hour piece created and performed for the first time in Auroville. 8 radios arranged in the public space were broadcasting local stations, while others played the hidden sounds between channels. The transistors played in a very low volume to create a soft carpet of noise. Chloe and Lucas used the emerging chaos to compose music that was distributed over four speakers.
The concert benefits the AurovilleRadio and the contributions collected will help to launch the new Art & Science of Communication School and curriculum.
Chlo Sanchez is Aurovilian since 2007. Today she travels between Auroville and France where she composes a patchwork of all kinds of sounds for performing art, radio and documentary. Producer and director for Radio France (French National Radio), she has also created the Hand Made Radio Art (Collective Labo-raadiophonic live performance) on Radio Campus Paris. Since September 2013 she joined the composition class of electroacoustic music at the Experimental Music Conservatory of Pantin.
Lucas Pizzini is a multi-instrumentalist, sound engineer and sound hacker. Fascinated by sounds, he transforms his saxophone or flute to make unexpected sounds (see video here: http://youtu.be/IGjVxQxLk94). He also invents motorized instruments from recovered electronic objects which are controlled like an orchestra of robots. He has also participated in various musical projects of electroacoustic music, jazz, free improvisation or traditional music.
