Sender: thirdcoast-bounces@epistolary.orgTo: undisclosed-recipients:;THIS WEEK @ http://www.thirdcoastfestival.org we’re listening to the sounds of semantics…

Language is a recurring theme for performer/composer Pamela Z, who uses her extraordinary voice, sampled sound and a wide assortment of digital techniques to create her dynamic audio work. Check out three pieces by Ms. Z, including a story which recreates the haunting voices her mother hears inside her head, a sound collage using the conversations of computer programmers, and an opera based on a most unusual museum exhibit.

Pamela Z will also be joining us here in Chicago, as a presenter at the upcoming Third Coast Festival Conference in Chicago. Registration for this three-day immersion into the art of producing documentary audio closes at the end of the September.

Here’s where you can find lots more information, including how to register: http://www.thirdcoastfestival.org/annual_conference.asp

ALSO…

The TCF’s got lots in store for the radio enthusiasts out there as well. Check out what’s planned for our upcoming “flurry” of public audio events this Fall: http://www.thirdcoastfestival.org/listening_room_other_events.asp

including the premiere of the – Third Coast Festival ShortDocs: Stories about Games, on September 28 at Steppenwolf’s Garage Theatre. (http://www.thirdcoastfestival.org/listening_room.asp)

The Story of my Life: Julie Shapiro

The Story of my Life, The IFC GalleryDear Friends and colleagues,
last months the new elected IFC project group presented itself by written self portraits. If you didn’t notice yet: you can find our stories at the web log: http://ifc.blog-city.com/intro_and_overview.htm
We thought it is a nice idea to know a bit more about all those creatures who together are forming our IFC community.
Who are those individuals, what is their background, what is the -professional – story of their life? What connects them to our IFC?
WHO ARE YOU?
We start this week, in an estafette, and you’ll find Julie Shapiro’s story. She has contacted a next person she’s interested in, and asked him/her to be the next one in our weekly IFC-personality-estafette (advice for all of you: choose someone you still don’t know too well and you’d like to know better). This is something you’ll have arrange yourself: you contact the next one for our estafette.
So: you are asked by someone in week one, give us your story in week 2 and immediately look for a next person in week 3.

Your pictures (maximum of three) and text can be sent to Willem Davids (willem.davids@rvu.nl), our beloved webmaster.

There is an IFC list of participants. If you are in doubt or if you’re looking for a specific person and you can’t find her/him yourself: contact Willem (willem.davids@rvu.nl) or me (vincent.van.merwijk@rvu.nl).
Hope you like this idea and take part in creating our IFC GALLERY.
We all are looking forwards to your contribution. Give us a laugh!

So: the kick off of our IFC Gallery is given this week by Julie Shapiro. She asked Jean Claude Kuner to be next!

The Story of my Life: Julie Shapiro

When asked as a child, “Julie, what do you want to be when you grow up?”
I don’t recall ever answering with “Director of a documentary audio
festival for radio and the Internet.” It’s far more likely that I told
people, with determination, “a horse.” According to my college degree,
at some point along the line I was aiming to take on the life of a
Sociologist. A few years later, while working in an independent record
store, I might have answered “an independent record store owner.” Half
a decade after that, after driving around the US looking for
functioning, wooden carousels and listening to an awful lot of public
radio, I realized I’d cruised right into the answer of that question,
once and for all. No, I didn’t want to grow up and work in an amusement
park, I wanted to get involved with radio – a perfect combination of
sound, music, story, expression and surprise – all of the things I
found most important in the world.


(from the wooden carousel in Central Park, NYC)

After growing up in Bath, Ohio and then schooling and/or living stints
in Kentucky, Colorado, Oregon, and Arizona, I found myself in North
Carolina at the end of the last century – working at a rock club,
helping organize an experimental music festival (www.transmit.org) AND
interning at the public radio station there. This was progress! After a
few other combinations of employment and some antipodal travel, I
settled in at an amazing place called the Center for Documentary
Studies
, at Duke University, and while there lucked upon a separate
opportunity to produce a radio show about Southern literature, called
Storylines Southeast. This experience brought me soundly back into the
radio world, and coaxed me into looking further afield for other radio
opportunities.


(Bath, Ohio)

Fate delivered me to Chicago, just in time to miraculously land a
position with the Third Coast International Audio Festival,
(www.thirdcoastfestival.org) which was just starting up. Johanna Zorn,
the founder of the Festival, and I became fast friends and even faster
colleagues, and we’ve spent the past five years navigating this most
challenging and rewarding project through infancy and childhood.
Presently we figure we’ve achieved teenage-hood, in Festival years. All
along we’ve kept the same goal in mind – to bring radio from all over
the world to as many ears as possible, and to give listeners and
producers new perspectives for conceiving of and absorbing radio.


(Early artwork, age 6)

Just as miraculously, we somehow discovered the IFC community, back in
the Festival’s first year (2001.) The TCF was welcomed with open arms at
the IFC in Sydney, and I’ve felt nothing but support and encouragement
from this radio family, ever since. In fact, the IFC has been a (maybe
even “the”) significant factor in putting the “International” in the
Third Coast International Audio Festival! Over the past five years we’ve
welcomed members of the IFC community as judges, winners of our
competition and presenters at our conference, and we’ve also had our
ears opened to a new (to us) and beautiful sort of radio production so
championed by the IFC, which we’ve been able to share with our American
colleagues and audiences – the radio Feature.


(Pony and Thirston)

Personally, this kinship between the TCF and the IFC is one of the
reasons i’m deeply happy being a part of the Festival, and contributes
to a sense that i’ll be with it for a long time to come.

I’m currently the Managing Director of the TCF, which means that I
handle loads of artistic and administrative details on a daily basis as
well as continue to help shape our vision for the future of the
Festival. I also do a bit of production work (sound art and such) on the
side, and am currently trying to keep a weblog about sound-related
things in the world: http://www.notetheslantoftheovals.blogspot.com.
I’m happily rooted in Chicago now, with a full household consisting of
two all black pets – Thirston and Pony. Occasionally I do ask myself,
“Julie, what do you want to be when you grow up?” The answer to which,
of course, escapes me for now…

Jean Claude Kuner has agreed to be
the next to tell his life story. He will give it to us in a week or so.

Wel ok hier Willem, geen te dik gedoe en soms zelfs mooie programma’s gehoord – en van landgenoten weinig last gelukkig – Klaas Vos vormt een intiem koppeltje met Pat Donnez en ik vermaak me met Kees Vlaanderen en wat Noorse dames. Ook internationaal werd er erg gelachen om mijn Retirade maar volgens jurylid Alfred Koch winnen humoristiscvhe programma’s nooit dus dat zit wel goed….Nieuwe ideeen moet ik nog even laten bezinken….

The Story of my life: Jean-Claude Kuner

Travelling is my passion. It all began in 1980 when an editor from SFB (Berlin) suggested that I take a tape recorder with me on my first trip to the United States to see what I might bring back. This turned into a series of programmes about contemporary American music and marked the beginning of my work in radio.


(Krapp’s Last Tape, Thalia Theater Hamburg)

At this time theatre was also a passion of mine. In 1982 I started directing plays and operas all over Germany as a freelance director – mainly contemporary works like Beckett, Brecht or Thomas Bernhard.


(Krapp’s Last Tape, Thalia Theater Hamburg)

Unfortunately these two passions conflicted with one another and I found I preferred travelling and exploring to sitting in a theatre.

I continued my radio work when I had no theatre projects and it was a source of income I kept secret from my theatre world.


(at the SFB studios, Berlin)

Then in 1992 I met Klaus Lindemann at SFB who really helped change this from a job into a passion. I discovered the world of features and found a sensitive and simultaneously critical mind in Klaus. This radio form bombarded me with creative challenges and immediately excited me. One of my first pieces was about Native American reservations in the State of New York.


(at the SFB studios, Berlin)

Born in Basle and living in Berlin since I left Switzerland at the age of 22, I always loved living in new and different places. I spent a number of years living abroad in New York and San Francisco among other cities. This provided me the opportunity for professional encounters and experiences, for example getting to work with composers like John Cage, Philip Glass and Steve Reich. At the same time I tried getting a play produced in New York which, unfortunately, never got off the ground.

Music and sounds are what I love.

I prefer to write about things I initially don’t know very much about. I like to follow where my curiosity leads me and I try to look at things with a fresh eye and open mind. Naturally I mainly found my subjects in other countries, especially in North America.

But I also love following in the footsteps of people with exceptional life stories – folksinger Pete Seeger, for example, pianist Grete Sultan, world-traveller and composer Hans Helfritz or actor Curt Bois, just to name a few.

Oh…and the theatre? I left it quite suddenly. One night in Weimar I woke up and knew that my theatre life was over for good. I went to rehearsal, said goodbye to the actors and returned to Berlin. That was in 1996.

Since then passion, curiosity, variety and diversity have remained the keywords in my working life. This includes being freelance and independent. Embracing Pro Tools and the Internet which allow us to be even more independent in terms of time and (physical) location.

Today it is great to know (thanks to the IFC) that I am not alone in my passion.
I asked Peter Woods in Ireland to create a next self portrait in this IFC Gallery. He egreed to do it.
