LISTEN to PUT.USE.WHEN.CAN. December 2016, Paris, France. Recorded at Radio Campus. Julia Drouhin for F-Air Play session,with the artist and composer Ocean Viva Silver Valerie Vivancos and Dinah Bird.
Field recordings, a thumb piano, voices, a small record player and a melodica. Never waste a good opportunity we say to ourselves, Put.Use.When.Can. Broadcast in February 2017 on radia.fm, network of 25 cultural radios in 15 countries, using radio as an art form.
"Julia Drouhin (AU/FR), dramatically veiled in black lace among the mossy tombstones of Halle’s Renaissance cemetery, performs something ephemeral and edible. This French-Tasmanian artist, who has featured on ABC Radio’s Soundproof, is known for making records out of chocolate. A delicate process of casting confectionery in state of the art silicone reproduces the grooves with surprising fidelity. The sounds are as good as they taste and can be played for a little while before disintegrating. Some of the records break coming out of the moulds and are distributed to the crowd for consumption without ever being heard. I am surprised by how this brings the crowd together, like a strange sweet communion. Small radios across the cemetery play a broadcast backdrop composed of works by 40 women who collaborated on the project, their creations printed to vinyl disks from which Drouhin's confections were also cast."

Quoll resurrection by Lucy Hawthorne
Another favourite performance was Julia Drouhin’s interaction with a taxidermied quoll. Sitting cross-legged in the corner of the convict-era Bond Store and surrounded by vitrines of specimens, Drouhin treated the animal with an antique Provita Generator or violet ray — an early 20th century device used to address everything from spinal conditions to dental abscesses. Borrowed from the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery’s (TMAG) education department, the quoll was taxidermied in a way that rendered the Tasmanian carnivore cute, domestic and even a little bit cool, making Drouhin’s pseudo-ritual all the more curious and absurd.
RADIO REVOLTEN OU L’ART D’ÉMETTRE EN RELATION
Parmi les moments emblématiques qui retinrent l’attention : la performance de Julia Drouhin, qui avec Sweet Tribology rendit un savoureux et gustatif hommage aux créatrices sonores. L’artiste, après avoir joué un 45 tours en chocolat, le brisa pour distribuer les morceaux au public. Une impression de communion en émanait, accentuée par le cadre : le vieux cimetière de Halle. Entre les tombes, des radios portatives invitaient à suivent en mouvement la performance, sans en perdre une miette. Par Alexandra Baraille RÉFLEXIONS 2 MAI 2017 SYNTONE
