ENGLISH

ZANG DADA SH'BOOM is an imaginative, humorous, ironic electronic sound collage that celebrates the DADA spirit that Colin Fallows originally intended to present in the original Cabaret Voltaire in Zürch.

ZANG DADA SH'BOOM is an audio collage mixing archival recordings in a digital soundscape. It incorporates fragments of archival spoken word recordings and sound poetry with prepared/treated electric guitars in a sequence of rhythms and structures. Mixing time-scales, the sound poetry of the early twentieth century meets the digital technologies of the late twentieth century. Sound shapes are collaged from a rich sonic mix of recordings, including spoken-word samples and live performance.

The radiopiece ZANG DADA SH'BOOM consists of 3 parts:
1. Dada Overture (9'42")   [REAL AUDIO]
Dada Overture is a one-word radio play composed from edits of the word 'Dada' from archival recordings of radio interviews with two Dada progenitors, Richard Huelsenbeck and Tristan Tzara. As overtures are made, the piece sheds light on the historical conjecture surrounding the selection of the word 'Dada'.
2. Zang Dada Sh'Boom (Concrete Mix) (14'08")   [REAL AUDIO]
Zang Dada Sh'Boom is an imaginary a cappella, a kind of dada doo-wop number composed from edits of archival recordings of Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, Richard Huelsenbeck, Tristan Tzara and Kurt Schwitters. The piece layers vocals from these international representatives of the Dada spirit. As the piece unfolds the layers evolve into ever more complex rhythms.
3. Movement for Guitars & Noise Machines (6'43")   [REAL AUDIO]
Movement for Guitars & Noise Machines is one of a series of mono-chordal pieces for multiple prepared and treated electric guitars. The piece weaves sheets of sound creating overtones that conjure up the presence of imaginary instruments.


Watch this page for further developments as Colin Fallows meets Fritz Ostermeyer who, 10 years ago, produced a first KUNSTRADIO DADA-Collage by Wolfgang Weisgram.
DEUTSCH

ZANG DADA SH'BOOM ist die Radioversion einer Collage, die ihr Autor und Producer Colin Fallows ursprünglich am Schauplatz des Cabaret Voltaire in der Zürcher Spiegelgasse präsentierten wollte.

Das Radiostück besteht aus drei Teilen:

1. Dada Ouverture (9'42") [REAL AUDIO]

2. Zang Dada Sh'Boom (14'08") [REAL AUDIO]

3. Movement for Guitars & Noise Machines (6'43") [REAL AUDIO]

In einer Mischung unterschiedlicher zeitlicher Bezüge trifft die Lautpoesie des frühen 20.Jhs. auf die digitalen Technologien von heute. Die Intonarumori der Futuristen werden mit Noise vom Ende des Jahrhunderts gemischt, unterlegt mit Aufnahmen und Samples aus Live-Performances, von präparierten Instrumenten oder Sounds aus dem Weltall.


Halten Sie hier Ausschau nach den Ankündigungen weiterer Entwicklungen! Denn - Colin Fallows wird auf Fritz Ostermeyer treffen, der vor fast genau 10 Jahren zusammen mit Wolfgang Weisgram eine erste KUNSTRADIO DADA Collage produziert hat: DADA AU GRAND AIR/Der Sängerkrieg in Tirol, 23. 02. 1989.
