With the approach of setting a counterweight to the formatted programming of established radio stations, the bauhaus.fm-Rundfunkorchester
broadcasts uncontrolled sounds into stream and ether. Only loose agreements regarding the sound material as well as their use in time, are agreements that guarantee a uniqueness of the performance at every performance: always new, always fresh.
Since 2017, the bauhaus.fm-Rundfunkorchester
consists of activists of the experimental radio station bauhaus.fm
as well as alumni of the Bauhaus University Weimar
. Inspired by the participation in the radio art festival Radio Revolten 2016 (Halle) as well as in the live program "SAVVY Funk" (Berlin) as part of the dokumenta14 radio project (2017), the group has been working on their own live improvisations since the beginning of 2017. One of the constants of the performance is the inclusion of the inherent sound of the place as well as the instruments and objects used. Recording or broadcasting begins with entering the space, including the setup of the setup. Thus, electronic instruments such as drum machines and computers, become sound generators even before electricity begins to flow through them. Everything is allowed as an instrument or sound generator: soundscapes, voices, oscillators, live streams, samplers, effects units ...
In over 30 recordings of the live radio concerts at bauhaus.fm
as well as in recordings of concerts in Cologne, Dresden and Halle, the sonic diversity of the material used as well as the use of unconventional sound generators becomes apparent.
