We’re Back!
Maya de Paula Hanika, 22 August 2011

Dear Faithful Listeners,

We’ve missed you! But you’ll be glad to know our time apart was not spent in vain. The [Un]Observed’s two month turn about the UK has pulled up trumps.We’ve a new issue, our eighth, with an emphasis on sound art with a little retro thrown in: Featuring works from Jennie C. Jones, Stephen Vitiello and Thomas Lopez, aka the infamous Meatball Fulton.

We are delighted to present alongside this, our second selection of gorgeous podcasts from The Guardian, including a personal favorite of mine, Kazuko Hohki’s In the Evening, In the Bath: the bittersweet tale of a woman who discovers a small hole beneath her heart and spends a lifetime searching for something to fill it. We spent an afternoon at The Guardian HQ in London, the day after the News of the World hacking story broke! We had a tour of their beautiful office in Kings Cross, and caught up with Francesca Panetta.

Our other british partners In the Dark lent us another great piece from RTÉ‘s Ronan Kelly, producer of last issue’s delightfully visceral Meat Factory Ear Worms.
We also had the pleasure whilst in London, of attending In the Dark‘s latest listening event, at the historical Tabernacle in Powis Square.

Other highlights from the trip include interviewing young curator Will Lunn and artist Pablo Bronstein, Tracey Emin’s extraordinary exhibition at the Hayward Gallery, the pastoral beauty of the South West and mind-blowing vistas of rural Scotland.

We are so glad to be back with you, and can’t wait to share our adventures in sound from across the pond.

Our Blog

Welcome to The [Un]Observed blog. We’re excited that you’re here. Within these pages you will discover the minds behind The [Un]Observed: what we find interesting, what we love, and what we are skeptical of. You’ll find interviews with people who engage with all kinds of sound in genre-bending ways, reviews of new audio work, and in-depth looks at issues raised by pieces on our main site. Above all, this is a space to explore sound—in all its elemental, sociological, and artistic manifestations.

Issue 09

After some creative strategy brainstorming over here at HQ we have decided to take a new direction with our next issue.

Issue 09 will be the first in a continuing series of themed issues of The [Un]Observed. With this focus we aim to challenge our curatorial style, to continue to forefront the work of a growing number of artists and producers, whilst allowing The [Un]Observed to realize itself more fully as a publication.

The first issue takes the theme of Borders. We are already over the moon about the works we have lined up and can’t wait to share them with you.

After the success of our last event at OHIO in March, we’re going for round two.

We’re hoping to add a performance element to the lineup, showcasing the talents of some amazing local artists, in addition to our selections from the magazine.

We are committed to maintaining our goal of clearing a space for creative thinkers and audiophiles to meet and mingle and listen. Stay tuned for details.

Get Your Audio On (with food)

Francesca Panetta was in town and to celebrate, we decided we would have an audiofile party, a chance for people who love sound to geek out for the evening over delicious food. So a little over a week ago, we got together, at tart made by Philip, and talked shop with Andrew Roth, Ben Furstenberg, Aaron Ximm, Roman Mars, Amy Standen and Jeremiah Moore. We realized how fun it was and hope to have more audio parties in the future…
