*Radio Web MACBA - Most listened podcasts June 2021*

*1- Francesc Torres
<https://rwm.macba.cat/ca/especials/fons-audio-50-francesc-torres> (only
available in Catalan): "El museu era sempre el final de trajecte. Arribaves
quan ja eres més o menys gran, i se't donava la benedicció d’alguna manera.
La instal·lació fa que tot això doni una volta de campana de 180°." *

Francesc Torres
(Barcelona, 1948) is an artist, essayist, poet, collector, and curator, who
has been involved with conceptual art since the late sixties. He has been a
pioneering figure in the use of installation as an artistic and narrative
device with which to explore the possibilities of the exhibition space, the
artistic object, and the interactions that take place between the audience
and the art work. Historical memory, understood as a political category, is
another element that runs through his work.

*2- Maite Garbayo-Maeztu
<https://rwm.macba.cat/en/sonia/sonia-332-maite-garbayo-maeztu> (only
available in Spanish): "Entiendo la cita también como una práctica
feminista de reconocimiento de otras: la cita es también un acto de amor".*

In this podcast, Maite Garbayo-Maeztu
<https://rwm.macba.cat/en/sonia/sonia-332-maite-garbayo-maeztu>talks about
writing, motherhood and low-intensity abandonment. She examines the
aesthetic materiality of bodies and brings up quotations as gestures by
which one becomes intertwined with those who came before, like acts of
loving alignment. The ideas that emerge from the conversation include the
notion of incalculability—the new that emerges between corporalities, like
a gift for those whose practice allows for unexpected, totally unplanned,
ways of politically enlivening the things around them.

*3- Eyal Weizman: "Our aim is always to locate the split-second in its
longer history. Whether in the incident itself, what happened before what
happened after... But also very importantly, what is the social, political
or economic context in which violence has happened?"*

In our second conversation with founding director of Forensic Architecture
Eyal Weizma <https://rwm.macba.cat/en/sonia/sonia-331-eyal-weizman>n, we
explore further the nuances of their sophisticated research practice, this
time focusing on the notions of time and duration from a forensic
perspective in order to unfold multiple temporalities from an instant. In
doing so, Weizman explains how to build a case for public truth using
clouds, architecture, metadata, shadows, testimonies, and surveillance and
satellite imagery.

*4- Peter Zinovieff:
wrote a paper in 1966 which suggested that my pathetic computer would be
able to — if I could program it — be an emotional machine which could
interpret emotional input to make a beautiful piece of music. Let alone in
the 1960s… this is completely impossible now and in the foreseeable
decades. But I was dead serious about it.”*

*In loving memory of Peter Zinovieff (26 January 1933 – 23 June 2021), who
left us a couple of days ago.*

In this podcast, Peter Zinovieff
about how he assembled the world's first personal computer, his time at EMS
and the team that accompanied him, about the listening room, academia;
about engineering, experimentation and how not to keep a sound archive;
about Unit Delta Plus, how to run a synthesiser off a windmill, and how to
kindly ask a computer to make us a beautiful composition.

*5- Chris Cutler: "Olivier Messiaen, one of the giants of 20th century
composition, collected, transcribed and worked extensively with birdsong
all his life."*

In this new PROBES Auxiliary by Chris Cutle
<https://rwm.macba.cat/en/research/probes-292-auxiliaries>r, composers and
performers expand their classical, contemporary, avant garde, jazz, rock,
electronic and installation art vocabularies by incorporating real or
virtual collaborations with wildlife, soundscapes, insects, amphibia,
birds, whales and wolves. And we learn what a whale has in common with a
