AUTUMN RESIDENCY 2023: KHAMOOSH
The Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee residency programme supports visual artists experimenting with radio. For our latest round in Autumn 2023, Khamoosh reflected on and researched previous ongoing projects that initially started from a trip that two of their members had made to Gouran village on Qeshm Island, located in the south of Iran.
Listen back: Channelling
Channelling. Be a vehicle. A path. A hole. Go. Let go. Make way for something to happen. Something, the other. Be others. Guide. Make room and draw a line. Mark a step. Divide. Contain. Carry from one place to another. Create. A plan, a landscape, a spectrum, a call.
'Channelling' connects the medium of audio with other realms. In this online collective exhibition curated by Andrea González, three artists explore channelling through sound:
Listen back: The sonic experience of life

New HHHorizons: Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee + residents at the Thomaskerk for ADE
During ADE 2023, Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee collaborated with Het HEM and Horst Arts & Music Festival on two evenings of interdisciplinary performances at the Thomaskerk in Amsterdam, called New HHHorizons. At the brutalist church building above, we presented a listening session with excerpts from the archive selected by founders Arif Kornweitz and Radna Rumping, followed by the work of residents Alec Mateo and Mikatsiu, on Thursday 19 October and Friday 20 October, respectively.
MF muun: a dj archeology
To conclude his residency at Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee, Emiddio Vasquez presents MF muun: a dj archeology, a backspin on his opening work nuum FM. Here he approaches radio through its “transmission-reception” operation in a dual form: its political character in the history of pirate radio and its ecological role in bat’s echolocation.

Artun Alaska Arasli
An attempt to approach the radio play genre through what surrounds it, Philoctetes: Rehearsals (Act I) is the first act in imagining the processes of a non-existent play through the play's rehearsals and the life of its actors outside practice hours. Presented here in this first act is the beginning of its rehearsal processes: actors commute back and forth to the rehearsal space, and initial discussions are carried out to grasp the text. This radio play is made almost entirely out of found sounds, with occasional interjections by the artist.

On Access Riders
Access docs / access riders / care riders are used by artists living with disability to ensure that their needs are met when working with others. They help to cover important issues prior to beginning a working relationship, allowing both the organization's team and artists to feel confident and comfortable in their interactions with each other.
For this report, artist Fabian Reichle joined the closing event of the residency of collective at7 at Hotel Maria Kapel.
