Radikal Unsichtbar is proud to release a limited edition tape with works by Angela Anzi and Tobias Kirstein specially produced for Radikal Unsichtbar ACT 8.

The tape comes in brown with a cover neatly printed on risograph in golden-brown.

A) Angela Anzi - Shapes in Space (2019)

Hamburg-based Swiss artist Angela Anzi works with sound as an actor in her performative sculptures and mechanical installations. Her work is very playful mixing everyday objects and handmade ceramics.

"Shapes in Space" by Angela Anzi is her first ever release of recordings in which she performs together with her sculptural works.

B) Tobias R. Kirstein - Elektro-akustisches Phänomen (2018)

Through his conceptual performances and installations Copenhagen-based sound artist Tobias R. Kirstein explores the act of listening and creating sound as an invisible yet very powerful, sometimes aggressive and territorial act.

"Elektroakustisches Phänomen" is recorded in autumn 2018, composed and compiled by Tobias R. Kirstein at Kunsthøjskolen i Holbæk with a generous contribution from students and teachers. You hear human voices mixing with the sinewaves from tonegenerators filling up and resonating with the studio space.

This tape was released in October 2019 as a part of Radikal Unsichtbar - Centre for collective learning and radical listening ACT8: HOW TO LISTEN TO PILLARS AND THINGS exploring sonic architecture and constructions in sound.

Architecture, pillars and things are results of human culture and civilisation. How does sound shape knowledge, and how does culture shape sound? How does our physical environment and the things around us influence the way we listen, and is it possible to create sonic architecture and constructions in sound?

Thanks to Angela Anzi, Tobias R. Kirstein for contributing and sharing their sounds and ideas, to Ursula Nistrup for giving inspiration, to Boris Vogeler and Westwerk for giving space, to Judit Vetter for printing the cover, to Florian Braünlich and Jez Riley French for listening and to Gavin Weiss for the professional mastering of the tape.

Radikal Unsichtbar - Centre for Collective Learning and Radical Listening ACT 8 is kindly supported by Danish Art Foundation and Hamburg Ministry of Culture.
