SUNDAY MORNINGS WITH... is a performative event-based project that aims to reveal the hidden connections, quiet conversations, and influences ordinarily kept private in the studio. Far from animating and articulating artworks through only talking, the program aims to create an environment where bodies, materials, ideas, and conversations come together, as a place to seed new ideas for both artistic practices and the community that surrounds Shimmer.

Especially for South Explorer, SHIMMER and RAAR invite you to join ‘Sunday Morning With H/D, and, Daniela de Paulis’ where, over breakfast, we host a live and online event dedicated to space, sound, and poetics. From the comfort of our breakfast table turned radio desk turned interstellar JazzShip we will travel across the universe with duo H/D who have created a playlist that mimics the eight planets of the solar system, and the spaces of dark matter in between them. In this, it entangles our everyday invisibilities with that which is visible. Working between Delhi and London H/D connects with us to introduce the listening session via video-link. Joining us is also Charlois-based artist DANIELA DE PAULIS who regularly works with the poetics of global mobility, and is currently sending brainwaves into space. Daniela will share with us some of her sound pieces as well as audio works that have been influential to her practice such as John Cage’s 4’33 piece. Steering the interstellar ship, with Shimmer as his co-pilots, is JOSHUA THIES with his Rotterdam Art And Radio project RAAR. Join us at Shimmer or online at RAAR Live (http://mixlr.com/raar/) for our first Sunday Mornings With RAAR, H/D, and, Daniela de Paulis from 11:00-13:00 on Sunday 15 April 2018.
RAAR (Rotterdam Art And Radio) is a nomadic platform for live experiments in sound/audio arts. Our priority is to create an online presence where artists can test ideas and perform finished works live. We try to work accessible locations so the general public can also stop by and contribute with their thoughts or improvised works. Your host is JOSHUA THIES along with many other invited and uninvited guests.

HYLOZOIC DESIRE's work centres around the rhythms of love and the beat of belonging. H/D draws on improvised sound and multiversal language. Their research tends toward (non)place in order to manifest non-linear varieties of being. Their On The Waves With playlist mimics the eight planets of the solar system, and the spaces of dark matter in between them. In this, it entangles our everyday invisibilities with that which is visible. Think: galaxy funk mixed with modem melodies, long-distance sex stirred with lost antennae, polar ice bundled with maritime signals, post-gender vibrations, Titan's alienation and lost prayers.
