Raga Radiophonic - Kinetic radio recordings. Part 1
Live, kinetic radio recordings and electronic Rangoli lightbox installations - an acid house, noise influenced, hypnogogic meditation on Kali Yuga.
The harmonics / fluctuations / glitches are all part of the live radio recordings created directly by the electronic changes in the light patterns. Part of a series of six experiments for gallery exhibition. These pieces stem directly from ongoing research by Joe Banks with radio, VLF and surrounding electrical pulses, and Poulomi Desai’s experiments with light since the 1990’s.
An homage to India’s humanists and radicals with love. Best listened to loud with headphones.

In the first century B.C., the poet Gaius Valerius Catullus addressed two of his critics, another poet Furius and a senator Aurelius, in a poem considered so vulgar and obscene that it was not translated outside of Latin until the 20th Century.
English translation of the poem:
I will sodomize you and face-fuck you,
Cock-sucker Aurelius and catamite Furius,
You who think, because my verses
Are delicate, that I am modest
For it’s right for the devoted poet to be chaste
Himself, but it’s not necessary for his verses to be so.
Verses which then have taste and charm,
If they are delicate and sexy,
And can incite an itch,
And I don’t mean in boys, but in those hairy old men
Who can’t get their flaccid dicks up.
You, because you have read of my countless kisses,
You think I’m a sissy?
I will sodomize you and face-fuck you.
