Tuned Circuits, the 2021 edition of Oscillation Festival, borrows its title from Daphne Oram, the early electronic composer and instrument inventor. In Oram’s work and writing we glimpse the possibility of a parallel between electronic and biological circuits, and a desire to perceive phenomena simultaneously from various sides. More broadly, the festival looks at practices and phenomena of tuning. Tuning is a fundament of music making. To think in terms of tuning is to think in terms of relations; of one thing coming into consonance or dissonance with another, of one thing colouring and affecting another. It is also to think in terms of time, since tuning requires a process of constant calibration: what is now in tune will not stay that way.
