When I was little, I used to rapidly switch radio station, because I was afraid of missing a song that I really liked, or another one that had a special meaning for me. For this reason, every time that I was allowed to sit in the front seat of the car, I spend the entire trip continuously jumping from a radio station to another, driving my parents crazy. From time to time I stopped to listen to the song that a station was broadcasting, but when it ended I started again, as I was doing before. It was like I wanted to listen to them all at the same time, and I didn't want to miss anything that was going on.
I was afraid of missing out. Who knows what was going on in other spaces, while I was enjoying that song?
What we're living now is a whole combination of temporal and spatial layers that meet and make people meet their past stories. Billions of different things could be happening right now.
Now you're on this radio station and it is broadcasting this song because you found yourself listening to that station at that very moment; only by waiting or actively changing channel you can change what you are living, but the more you grow up, the more you settle for it.
At that point, you realize that everything you chose not to do makes you grow up, instead of wandering from one radio channel to another. maybe it's worth stopping and waiting to see what happens.

the bread concert
can smells and tastes be heard through audio? the bread has unique quality for the ears.
every sound the bread can do, from the screaming sourdough to the cutting and eating of the fragrant crumbs, was collected through all the baking process within two days.
Mariona started making bread as a reaction to the imposed lockdown in Jerusalem and her consequent higher amount of free time, gaining baking after baking a personal know-how.

it's a nice place
a crowd screaming consists of individuals yelling.
individuals’ screams blend together till they become a smooth, organic, monotonous sound.
listened from a recorder, crowds screaming sounds all the same and they are anonymous.
a crowd screaming is a glut of individuality.
this excess of individuality creates so much chaos that becomes fluid, like the sound of a river.
like the sound of a market, where all people express their needs and try to satisfy them.
it is a nice place, because this place does not exist geographically

a whatsapp audio can explode like a bomb into the deepest feelings.
the distant memory of a territory that is closer than the physical place where I am.
the unbearable lack of something.
the need to repeat endlessy a memory in order not to let it be erased.
there are those who choose to compress the whole space in a short period of time, and those who choose to stay.
the territory is an act.
feeling lost, feeling at home, wandering like a polystyrene box carried by the wind.
third part of radiosuq’s dawn.
every tuesday for one month, a piece of radiosuq’s genesis will be revealed in form of live performance.

we were supposed to go to mars (or one of its moons) when something in the world decided to mess up all the plans, forcing us to cook carciofi pizza and make songs out of this.
we discovered that some sound waves, if arranged and mixed in special mysterious ways, can bring people to placeless places.
this live performance is a map to the nowhere and the everywhere: if you pay good attention you’ll find your personal way to the moon or a mars’ moon. doesn’t change much, as soon as it’s somewhere yet-to-discover, far away.
there you can find our jazzy celebration, vibes of an old tv arguing with noisy feedbacks with a video-cassette camera, the recipe of our carciofi pizza.
you don’t need your mask for it.

one month-long dawn pt.1
the sound of the church bells in jerusalem (quale church?), the 19th april at 12 o’clock (easter?? What was?) bursted into the video call between matteo and luisa, who couldn’t talk because of the noise. it seemed like the sound would never have finished. at some point they started singing and dancing, following the rhythm of the bells. during that call they conceived the idea of this radio as a reaction to their growing mistrust for images, territorial belonging and poetry of the sound. one month later, on the 19th of may they broadcasted their first live performance, which began with the sounds of that bell, fading into the music of drums, whistling and a bass, field recordings, guitar and whatsapp voice messages from one year before, when luisa was convincing matteo to go to jerusalem while he still was in bolzano.
between april and may they started working hard to give form, though immaterial, to the project. matteo in jerusalem and luisa in bolzano. while writing the manifesto, they concluded radiosuq is an ongoing process, a shapeless rain on a winter day in jerusalem. it doesn’t leave any trace, it evaporates and becomes rain again.
