Sweet Tribology is a project that insists on the fading beauty of the fragile forgotten wax cylinders objects used for recording and reproducing sound through the phonograph invented by Thomas Alva Edison on 1876.

Julia Drouhin has invited 40 women artists to select make a personalized 1 minute sample – wax minute - of Edison wax cylinders choosen by herself at SPAT (Sound Preservation Association of Tasmania). SPAT is an archival music museum run by 80 years old music lovers with tonnes of radios and incredible forgotten sound devices, waiting to be activated.

During her production residency at the SoundLAB of the Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial, the artist will use this selection to record chocolate records that she will “cook”. The chocolate records will be listened in a performance that under the name Sweet Tribology. Dulce fricción en la cumbre will take place 14 August in the Recreational Area Monte Deva (El Pinar).

Chocolate records evoke, in Julia Drohuin words, this nostalgic sound process of forgotten wax cylinders, but which erase the casted sound each time the diamond reach the surface. More you play the chocolate plate, less you hear the original but then you can hear so many other sounds. And then, the public will “eat” the music.

Soundproof, a weekly portal into radio art, soundscapes, performance and composed audio features, presented by Miyuki Jokiranta in the ABC Radio (Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s RN), will broadcast some of the tracks the 14th in coincidence with the picnic, and then on 16th.

Participating artist: Camille Antoine, Felicia Atkinson, Frieda Beukenkamp, Dinah Bird, Maya Boquet, Emma Bugg, Tania Buisse, Selena De Carvalho, Andrea Cohen, Lou Conboy, Kate Geck, Emmanuelle Gibello, Rosalind Hall, Hanna Hartman, Carola Haupt, Julie Honoré, Alice Hui-Sheng Chang, Zoe Irvine, Anne Laplantine, Sally Ann Mc Intyre, Mish Meijers, Coraline Janvier, Shannon Johnson, Miss Despoina, Rosa Menkman, Edith Perrenot, Sally Rees, Eve Risser, Elissa Ritson, Anne-Laure Robin, Maria Papadomanolaki, Nadège Philippe-Janon, Sabio, Pip Stafford, Rachel Tribout, Maia Urstad, Valérie Vivancos, Tricky Walsh, Sarah Washington.
