    Aki Onda has channeled the spirit of the late Korean artist Nam June Paik via radio transmission in Nam June’s Spirit Was Speaking to Me (2017/2021). Paik is known for his association with shamanism, a practice that consistently surfaces in his works. With a portable radio in hand, Onda communicates with his spirit from a distance—collecting field recordings of cryptic broadcasts and messages on anonymous radio stations. The series of séances has been conducted in different cities across the globe, beginning in Seoul, Korea in 2010 and continuing in Cologne, Germany in 2012, Wrocław, Poland in 2013, and Lewisburg, United States in 2014. This work was originally commissioned by documenta 14’s radio program “Every Time A Ear di Soun” in 2017. From March 26 to June 5, 2022, Aki Onda will present Nam June’s Spirit Was Speaking to Me, through microbroadcasting and printed matter at the Toronto Biennial of Art. Broadcasting over two frequencies (88.5 FM and 106.5 FM) that cover the exhibition site of 72 Perth Ave in Toronto, radios are placed as part of the exhibition to symbolize sound waves in the air. The audio work exists as invisible yet discrete and perceptible through the proper medium, recalling the ritual of channeling spirits. Bring your own radio to catch the frequencies. Onda is also bringing Nam June’s Spirit Was Speaking to Me to the international radio waves in a series of international public programs. The program will play, uninterrupted and in its entirety of 50 minutes. For Onda, those broadcasts are a response to how Nam June Paik spread his ideas through TV cable networks and connected to a large number of people at a global scale.

    the first regular edition of our new century of programs - yes, this is the 801st edition of framework radio, airing one month before our 20th birthday. have you got us a present yet? we began celebrating by listening to several favorite new releases, two on labels i've had the great pleasure of releasing work on myself, gruenrekorder and the helen scarsdale agency (watch for a new one with helen later this year!) - both markus mehr and jo montgomerie's releases have some impressive industrial weight to them. annette krebs enters the mix with a studio composition (record for the longest-titled work we've ever aired? possibly) that mixes nicely with the ambient sounds from the location where it was recorded. and finally we hear some composed and uncomposed field recordings from mathias guilbaud and the aporee soundmaps, respectively.

    this edition of framework:afield has been produced in canada by france jobin, and is the latest installment in her ongoing series for framework, these are a few of my favorite things. producer's notes: Bonjour, I am France Jobin, Welcome to these are a few of my favorite things. As mentioned in earlier installments, my interpretation of field recording based works is very broad. however, the thread I like to follow is to find artists who have mastered their unique identity through the music of sound. This is the second edition of my favorite things showcasing sound artists from Medellin, Colombia.
