Gender, voice, language, and identity are four important notions for musical creation, for the shaping of a canon, and for the interactions in the field. All four notions are strongly contextual and carry an inherent sense of paradigm and otherness. Other and self are defined via orientation and history, expressed via voice, and confirmed in language.
In this publication, these four core notions serve as a set of lenses permitting different perspectives on one another. However much the field of the sounding arts might pretend to be tangential to such affections, they provide important grounds for musical creation.
Some twenty artists, including myself, have created a variety of outputs – as different in form, strategies, approach, and language, as they are rooted in a variety of sub-fields within the sounding arts.

So much fabulous radiophonic news from the German speaking part of the world: last summer Anosmia was part of Savvy Funk at Documenta 14 in Kassel and Berlin. Next month, from May 4th 2018 till June 16th 2018 Anosmia will be featured in Interspaces an exhibition in Kunstlerhaus Kärnten in Klagenfurt in Austria.
And, last but not least, Anosmia will be on display for Radiophonic Spaces: the very first large scale overview exhibition about 100 year Radio Art to be held in Museum Tinguely in Basel, in Bauhaus in Weimar and Haus der Kulturen Welt in Berlin from October 2018 till September 2019. Anosmia will be featured alongside 200 treasures by a.o. Antonin Artaud, Orson Welles, Samuel Beckett, John Cage, Friederike Mayröcker to Michaela Mélian, Brandon LaBelle, Alessandro Bossetti, Ahmet Ögüt or Natascha Sadr Haghighian.
I love giving lectures, teaching masterclasses and tailoring workshops related to vocal art and radio art: for individuals as well as groups! I have had the tremendous honour to have been taught in formal and informal ways from an innumerous amount of inspiring and generous masters (see bio); and I am excited to pass on all I have learned and discovered along the way. So from 2018 onwards I’ll be teaching on a more regular basis.
