Transmitting Stones / Artists in Residence / August 2023
Vertical & horizontal exchanges between artists & cultural workers
The aim of the residency was an exchange and encounters outside the usual paths, without pressure for production and final results
It was a dense, intensive programme that required a lot of energy and strength. Here is a selection of initiatives, musicians and institutions with whom we enjoyed exchanging ideas (thank you) in Basel:
Ausstellungsraum Klingental (Alexandra Adler), Kammerorchester Basel, Ganett Basel, Studio Amber Unit (Stevie Fidler), Culturescapes, Marcel Bieri (Say Hi Network), Giovanni Vicari, Giulia Dabalà, Danielle Bürgin (Radio X) and many more. Thanks to the support of Johannes Rühl and Casa di Rosa, "Transmitting Stones" was able to spend a week in wonderful Loco (Ticino) the second part of the residency. The focus was on the production of music and the exchange among the participants. It was a magical week, difficult to put into words.

The project was part of the programme Thoulathy: Cross-Border Collaboration. The programme was launched by L'art Rue and MitOst, with the support of the European Union. The project was also supported by Südkulturfonds.

The Covid-19 pandemic has made it extremely difficult for musicians from the global South and East to perform and tour in Switzerland. The radio programme called
airtime! 1, starting in February 2022, invites selected musicians from Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Latin America to present their work and music on five independent Swiss radio stations (UNIKOM radios). The collaborative project, uniting Radio X, Radio RaBe, Radio 3fach, Radio Gwen and Radio Kanal K, was initiated by
artlink 2 and Südkulturfonds with the much-appreciated support of SRKS (Stiftung Radio und Kultur Schweiz) and Swissperform.
