JangeJafange

JangeJafange” is combined word in Persian language which mean “Futile-war” [/jang/ = war] [/jafang/= Futile].

Every day we start our life with our pre-defined and pre-circumcized social media world! I just made a scroll on my Facebook page and record my news feed one by one in June 2017 and tried to use them as a sound material to create a sound collage.

Sound collage (“glueing together”) is a technique where you put together your sonic elements (could be any kind) to create or define a composition or you can call it also montage.

Is the social media giving us a certain direction to think about the certain things or we are shaping our social media with our thoughts?

Wurfsendung

Sound artist: Amirabbas Mohammadi
Project Director: Julia Tieke

The Wurfsendung presents radio art in ultra-short formats: radio plays, features, and sound art in a maximum of forty-five seconds. Since September 2004 Deutschlandfunk Kultur has produced over 2,600 Wurfsendung segments in approximately 250 series. The Wurfsendung segments are scattered throughout the daily program of the radio station. Without a set timeslot, they can be heard during a music and literary magazine, noon report, or a philosophy program, and in between interviews, music, reports, and news. The experimental format cultivates absurd thoughts, new perspectives, and intelligent humour. For SAVVY (documenta 14 Commissioned Sound Work) Funk artists produced new Wurfsendung contributions, which, together with a specifically curated selection of older pieces, randomly punctuate the Program. The Wurfsendung is produced by the radio art department of Deutschlandfunk Kultur.

Special thanks to all the colleagues and friends who helped me to realise this project.
