Radio Stew: Robert Adrian X, Rupert Wolfgang Maria Huber

Produced by Various.
Described as “an installation for radio,” this work, "Applause," was made by Robert Adrian X and Rupert Wolfgang Maria Huber from three short samples of three people clapping. Extending for just over 30 minutes, the sound overlaps, in some places sounding like waves and others like a steady stream of applause. Like repeating a word over and over, the applause is abstracted and takes on a life of its own. As the composers described the work, “There is not much to be said about this piece. It is simply pure applause without cause or content - applause as an object.” - Introduced Wave Farm Radio Artist Fellow 2020/2021, Jess Speer.
