‘Cerca del cielo no se vive bien. Historias del éter’, presented by Xabier Erkizia, is another programme which consonni presents. It is a radio programme about the radio, and a proposal which reviews, through several characters of the twentieth century, not only the forms this medium has evolved into since its beginnings, but also the forms it could have turned into. It is also a forensic analysis of a means of communication which, in addition to proposing a new world model, has radically changed the way of understanding the body. In conclusion, a series of stories of the ether, written from the site.

Xabier Erkizia (Lesaka, 1975) is a sound artist, producer and curator. All his works are based on phenomenology in the context of sound and listening, and are developed through formal, aesthetic or political research, paying special attention to the geographical condition. He works or has worked as a co-director of the ERTZ (1999-2018) event and as sound department coordinator of the Arteleku Centre (2002-2014). He is the founder of the sound archive of the Basque Country soinumapa.net and is currently a member of the AUDIOLAB association. During the last few years he has been working as an invited professor in various schools and universities.

Episode #05. 'Silvia Guerrico (1905-1983)'

Shortly after birth, the radio established the parameters on which voice policies would be governed for a whole century. The radio, country and exile of incorporeal presences meant at the same time a constant laboratory and a kind of cage for those who believed in change through the ear. Silvia Guerrico (1905–1983), a Uruguayan journalist and writer, was one of the most recognizable voices during the early start of Argentine radio, and perhaps her first great victim. For her, it was said that women and microphones were not compatible

‘What would Barbarella do?’, presented by Arrate Hidalgo, is another programme which consonni presents. In this sonic space, the Bilbao feminist science fiction festival co-ordinator and translator Ansible Fest dissects the key topics on current feminism through science fiction. With scalpel in hand, she takes a speculative text and extracts the debate to look for its mutations in other fiction styles and in contemporary feminist thought. She is accompanied by the critic Laura Lazcano in her section dedicated to audiovisual.
Episode Nº 05 'A través del tiempo queer'

On the occasion of the LGBTQ + pride, which marked this past June the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall revolts, in this fifth episode we immerse ourselves in the speculative fiction that explores and practices what is queer. We start from Le Guin's classic The Left Hand of Darkness, and the limitations of this concrete reimagining of the genre, aided by Monique Wittig's The Straight Thought. We review gay urban genealogy in the work of New Yorker Samuel Delany and draw links between his writing and the queer and decolonial reflections of Hiromi Goto through what the theorist Jack Halberstam calls "queer time". Laura Lazcano brings us early examples of queer science fiction in the cinema of the 70s and 80s, the New Queer Cinema and its exponents, and tells us how transsexuality is reflected in current fiction. We also listen to some of the young bisexual voices of the current state-of-the-art fantasy and investigate the speculative potential of Spanish-speaking transfeminism thinking.

Contracömic is a radio programme presented by Borja Crespo and Elizabeth Casillas which aims to discover other worlds in this one, via a comic and its multiple possibilities. The fanzine as an artistic object, self-publication as a form of expression, a comic as activism and a critical tool, the committed cartoon, etc. It is focused on exploring the crossed fertilisation between the graphic medium and other arts, giving a voice to new trends, discovering new talents and essential authors which have opened up new expression channels. Contracömic conceives a public interested in culture in general and comics in particular.

Episode #04.  'Big comics for small readers'

‘Contracömic’ pays tribute to children and teenagers’ comics in its fourth edition. Cartoons aimed at the youngest but which can also capture the greatest readers. Recent essential titles by fundamental authors, e.g. from Superpatata to Luces nocturnas by Lorena Álvarez, passing through Leñadoras or La caca mágica, and many more examples worthy of consideration to start reading comic strips at an early age. Elizabeth Casillas and Borja Crespo, the programme presenters, will be interviewing Natacha Bustos, responsible for the graphic section of Moon Girl and Dinosaurio Diabólico. At the final discussion session, they will be joined by bookshop owner Patricia Millán, to talk about the evolution of children’s comics, publishers of interest on this topic or the functioning of bookshops among other questions.


Conchi Cagide and Idoia San Matías, lawyers from Intangia, specialists in Intellectual Property, will try to bring authorship rights to the street, both to artists and citizens, delving into intellectual property, while discussing new developments and changes, and getting to know experiences of both artists and users.


Episode 3.'The management is ours'

1/2 "Collective management systems" 

In this first block of this episode we explain the novelties in the collective management systems of copyright, for this we have the participation of Jokin Erkoreka (of the Basque management entity EKKI), Eric Jordi (of the independent management entity UNISON); Marta C. Dehesa (lawyer), and Ainara LeGardon (artist), both experts in intellectual property also participate.

2/2. "The self-management"

In the second and last block we analyze the alternative of self-management or individual rights management, as a valid option for the management of certain authorship rights; we talked with Ainara LeGardon and Celia Parra, self-managed artists; and we chat about the Intangia Self Copyright project or self-management symbol.

'T.R.A.U.M.A.' is a radio programme hosted by Magda De Santo and Duen Sacchi which invites us to share public cultures created from the diaspora experience and the migration of artists, researchers, curators, activists, writers, creators and workers of the queer/Kuir/Cuir community. The voices of 'T.R.A.U.M.A.' will take us home and will similarly take us to other possible households. Perhaps even our voices together will be vaguely like that dream community which inhabits Audre Lorde's Encuentros en  la Casa de la Diferencia (Zami: A New Spelling of My Name).

Sacchi - De Santo

We are a couple of writers, visual and scenic artists, sex/gender, non-cisgender norm dissenters. We are researchers, ex-philosophers, teachers and anti-racist activists, trans feminists, migrants from Argentina, living in Barcelona.

Episode #01Tuesday 1st October, 12:00pm - 1:00pm. 'Euro dream'

Resistance migratory strategies in the face of national and sexual trauma. Historical background of colonial plundering of indigenous bodies. Testimonies of current colonialism effects in Moroccan Trans and queer bodies. Criticism of western LGBT construction.
