This series is a collection of Contemporary sonic Journeys, performance, essays in the form of detours, written and produced by artist Simon Tyszko, taking in his archives, location recordings, interviews, guest talks and sound work.
Isotopica exists both as a series of sonic artworks, sketches and reports, rooted in Tyszko’s unique practice and association within the wider European Cultural and Art world.
There’s a whole heap of madness going on in most people’s minds, most of the time, isn’t there? Unlike everyone else, however, artist Simon Tyszko has the good sense to set it free, run with it, and allow his wildest thoughts to become touchable. Like the full-sized Dakota airplane wing installed in his flat on the fifth floor of a Fulham council estate. Or his work in cocaine, Absolute Hypocrisy, that made a criminal of the buyer – the ‘deal’ taking place in a Parisian hotel room. His practice is an ode to what-if, a punk-prayer to the possible. His regular radio show, isotopica, is a cornucopia of his most recent explorations in tangibility – some of the best bits that have made it from mind to airwaves. So come join in, tweet and listen to isotopica on resonance 104.4fm and now on resonance extra dab
