Sechzig is a quarterly experimental audiozine with the aim to bring people from the spheres of music, sound art and audio research together. Everybody is invited to participate, the only rule: exactly sixty seconds. Experiments, drones, noise, poems, found sounds, short songs, musique concrète, loops or whatever.
More than a mirror, a radio is a metaphor of a society, a culture, a technology, wider said, of the history. So, in a radio there is music, there are words. There are useful words, poetic words, meaningless words, other words too. So also, in a radio there are disruptions, limit things, there are dysfunctions too.
Once upon a time there was a little something and there was another something… and there was another other one; they danced and danced together… and they danced again, until the music was over… and over and over again.
The typical digital recording is a compressed version of a larger range of audible sound. This compression is the outcome of an industrial logic of speed and economy, and based on the scientific management of sensory perception. Using songs that thematize loss, disappearance or technological destruction, Disquiet takes the ‘junk’ sounds that have been erased through the digitization of music and reorganizes them into a multi track soundscape.
Recordings from Spanish radio broadcasts, censored under Francisco Franco’s regime, are used to create R.F.M. which is a collection of ‘silences’ cut by dozens of broadcasts, then processed and used as raw material.

ESTMAN RADIO DRAMA / 2011 / Radio drama in 4 chapters / English
Invited to take part in Illuminations, the 54th research on the nearby Porto Marghera, the historic headquarters of the Italian petrochemical industry. By involving edition of the Venice Biennale in 2011, Senatore decided to focus her some of the inhabitants, including laborers and retired workers as well as students from Venice’s universities, the artist promoted numerous encounters, debates, and analysis sessions concerning themes related to the area. The themes dealt with by the work are inspired by documents found at the Laborers’ Archive “Augusto Finzi” in Marghera, which gathers documents, including magazines, flyers, factory newspapers, posters, typewritten pages, and copies of trials tied to the events and labor protests which took place in the area’s factories beginning in 1950. The radio drama, the Italian version of which includes a direct contribution of many former laborers and the overlapping of individual memories – also with letters of the Finzi and recollections of Gianni Sbrogiò – portrays the very harsh work conditions and the long course of laborers to improve and claim for themselves appropriate cultural tools. Alongside fragments that describe constant contact with highly toxic materials, is the story of how many workers, embarking upon personal courses of study and cultural growth, end up sympathizing and developing autonomous forms of organization, making the petrochemical plant of Porto Marghera a strong political and social laboratory.
The participation of Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama students in Glasgow made an English version possible, in which all the characters are played by young actors.
