Sentient: This is a composite piece from various past and current works by OttoannA  which mixes field recordings with ​acousmatic composition​, multilayered collages, fragmented narration,electronic and electroacoustic synthesis… . A sonic trip through ethereal mindscapes that intertwines the tale of Marko Stepanov, an artist and outsider, whose life was transformed by a​ lightning strike whilst on a solitary mountain hike.

Formed in Paris in 2004, OttoannA (Rodolphe Alexis and Valérie Vivancos) have been producing sound pieces, devices, publications and participative actions. Their passion for processes has taken various shapes including a software that singles out fragments from TV news and rearranges them into a poetic litany, memories of familiar routes recorded on the edge of hypnosis, one-to-one DJ sets, transposing sounds from the streets of Paris to those of New York via boomboxes, a barely audible live set performed from inside a closet, and audio voyages by boat and in planetariums.


Started in April 2005, the Radia network is an international informal network of community radio stations that have a common interest in producing and sharing art works for the radio. In 2015, the network gathers 25 radio stations from 23 cities across 16 countries, speaking 10 different languages.[1] It also organizes linked-up events and special broadcasts. Radia intends to be a space of reflection about today's radio and radio art. Its activities try to contribute to intercultural exchange and artworks and artists circulation.

The network's name freely refers to La Radia,[2] Futurist manifesto written by Federico Tomaso Marinetti and Pino Masnata in 1933. The network's founders dropped the La to distance themselves from the Futurists' political views. As it stands alone, "radia" is simply "radio" or "radios" in some languages.
