SWEET TRIBOLOGY is a collective response to the fading beauty of forgotten memories, de/re-generation, and sharing music in public space. 40 women digested ghostly voices from the past.
Artists from 10 countries were invited by Julia Drouhin, guest curator for LABoral (Spectrum – LABoratorio de sonido FM radio and L.E.V.) in 2015, to interpret a custom minute sample of popular music played on wax cylinders recorded at SPAT (Sound Preservation Association of Tasmania).
SWEET TRIBOLOGY is a radio picnic with edible chocolate records inspired by wax cylinders.

SWEET TRIBOLOGY Box is a Pandora Box made by Frieda Beukenkamp, carrying the original picture discs and their sleeves with the content of 26 sound artists and 15 visual artists. SWEET TRIBOLOGY Box will carry the original records to the radio studios to be played on a record player, broadcasting the SWEET TRIBOLOGY programming through radios speakers in the picnic garden, where the audience will receive the electromagnetic FM waves sound signal on their radios, when eating the chocolate records. As a ghost boat, the SWEET TRIBOLOGY box will travel the world and will be the remaining art work to be seen, played, eaten & exhibited.
Sweet Tribology has been performed/heard at LABoral Centro De Artes, Spain; Radio Revolten, Halle, Germany; Mona, Hobart; Motto Gallery, Berlin.
