Maria Papadomanolaki's Assemblage No 1, originally produced for Radius, and is followed by a playlist of works selected by the artist.

Assemblage No 1 is the first of a series of works for radio that experiment with using only a limited pool of sounds, culled from one specific domestic appliance for each work. For Assemblage No 1, using different microphones and recording techniques, the mundane sounds and micro-environment of a refrigerator are rearranged and meticulously sculpted to “radiate” an uncanny and subconscious sonotopia. The piece finds inspiration in the surrealist notion of the assemblage and the blurring and destabilization of assumed (aural) realities attached to everyday objects. -Reprinted from Radius
