Inspired by 100-year-old Edison wax cylinder recordings, SWEET TRIBOLOGY is an international radio art project with 40 women from 10 countries who make chocolate records to be listened to and eaten during radiophonic picnics in Europe and Australia where listeners will bring their radios. Each event will invite the listener to be immersed in various soundscapes through radio speakers, while eating the music printed on chocolate records.

I'm Julia Drouhin, guest curator for LABoral, art center in Spain, where I will present the first event of SWEET TRIBOLOGY the 15th of August 2015. This ephemeral event is part of Spectrum (LABoratorio de sonido FM radio). Listeners are welcome to bring their own radios in situ. Other choco radio picnics are planning in Australia and Europe for 2015 - 2016.

I thank YOU very much for giving what YOU can to contribute to pay the artists, produce the vynil and chocolate records and organize radiophonic picnics. I REALLY LOVE both CHOCOLATE & MUSIC. Don't you?

Sweet Tribology was on national ABC TV news and 2 ABC radios (Melbourne&Hobart).






Tribology is the science of 'friction of interacting surfaces in relative motion'.

SWEET TRIBOLOGY explore frictions between
hard & soft,
art & archive,
past & present,
audio & visual,
original & copy,
inside & outside,
ears & guts
dead air & live music.

SWEET TRIBOLOGY is a collective response to the fading beauty of forgotten memories,  de/re-generation, and sharing music in public space.

SWEET TRIBOLOGY is a radio picnic with edible chocolate records inspired by wax cylinders.

Ancestors of the flat Bakelite record, Wax cylinders melt as chocolate.
As the diamond reaches the surface, the sculpted sound is erased.
The more you play the soft recording, the less you hear the original and instead, hear the other sounds all around.

40 women digested ghostly voices from the past.

Artists from 10 countries were invited by Julia Drouhin, guest curator for LABoral (Spectrum - LABoratorio de sonido FM radio and L.E.V.) in 2015, to interpret a custom minute sample of popular music played on wax cylinders recorded at SPAT (Sound Preservation Association of Tasmania).




I've invited international artists who inspire me to respond to a minute sample of popular music played from wax cylinders that I've recorded at SPAT (Sound Preservation Association of Tasmania) in Bellerive, Tasmania. Those cylinders are the ancestors of the flat vynil record. They are very fragile and melt as chocolate. I then associated the samples with each artists. Their responses will be printed on 7" picture discs that I will transform into 7" chocolate records.

This is how 1 wax cylinder plays popular music from a hundred years ago:






RADIO PICNIC

A local radio broadcast the new soundtracks from 7" picture discs in a radiophonic picnic where the chocolate copies can be played and eaten. Listeners are welcome to bring their radios.

How The Funds Will Be Used

Disco Ghost

Making chocolate records costs a bit, especially when it is from new compositions from 40 fabulous ladies!
Organising the event is expensive as well, especially if it is free entrance.

So here is an idea of what can be done with that Pozible campaign, and I won't even count my hours doing this + the website + breastfeeding the baby at the same time!
We are lucky to be supported by Arts Tasmania and their special crowdfunding program Crowbar.
If we reach the target of $4 000, they will add $2 000 to pay the artists and organise the events.

$1 500: production of the 12 vynil records (picture disc + cover) , shipping included.
$1 000: production of the chocolate records (mold + chocolate record + cardboard cover/player) for the radiophonic gardens
$2 000: help to cover the costs of the rewards production, shipping included.
$1 500: help to cover the costs of 1 event

Let's go over the target and thank the 40 fabulous women artists!

The Challenges

This is my first Pozible campaign.
((( SWEET TRIBOLOGY WEBSITE )))
I'm really excited about working with all those amazing women and I'm proud to share SWEET TRIBOLOGY as far as the universe can take it. It took a bit out of me to prepare it, having a baby boy and a very patient daughter, as well as the BEST husband who can cope with my sonic workaholic addiction.
If you click on the radio, you will have an idea of how my brain sounds at 4AM when I spent the night editing the website.

MY BRAIN AT 4AM

Soooooooo after all this effort, we will all go, as a family and artists, to Spain for a residency. There, we can taste all the paellas and tapas between the magic making of the chocolate records to be offered to the audience in the radiophonic garden produced by LABoral.
I hope Sweet Tribology will reach enough supporters to help bring about this delicious women collective project.
We are booking some other radiophonic picnics in Australia to present SWEET TRIBOLOGY as sister events in Australia.
