Interview with Coco and Kris Limbach

Meeting Coco and Kris Limbach at the Oranien studio turned out to be an electrifying experience on a steamy hot evening in Berlin. Kris talked about filming under the moonlight in a desolated Spanish landscape, about wood fires and burried melons and the special meaning of the color purple to Spanish history, and of course about his film “The Lost Color” from which he played sound samples, because the soundtrack is something special too. Coco presented her new tape “The Crystal Garden” which is a majestical piece of music, a…

Hera Lindsay Bird Live at the Wintec Press Club

Once upon a time one Summer day somewhere in a far away corner of the blogosphere, I went out for a walk. My myopic eye got caught by Keats getting fucked from behind. When I put on my 5€ glasses I saw something different: “Keats is dead so fuck me from behind.” I was delighted. And for a long time I could not understand why I was delighted. I even felt a kind of day-break what a glorious sunrise my heart opens to the first tune of the national anthem…

Interview with Nicolas Collins

Harold Schellinx sent us an interview he recorded and recently transcribed. Since Harold is very good with words I copy his introduction. One side remark to the interview is the location where it was held. You will hear a lot of noises, some of musical origin, that are coming through from the background. ‘Embedded in Noises’ could be another take on ‘The Making of Contemporary Music.’ Here is Harold: “Part of this year’s Sonic Protest Festival were a series of lectures, workshops and performances by the American composer Nicolas Collins,…

Don Campau – A Box full of Tapes

The collection of cassettes that arrived in Don’s postbox is slowly reducing. Every month he sends a big parcel to the museum for cassette culture that in some near future will rise in Zeppelin City in Bavaria, close to the homeland of the von Trapp Family. Don compiled this show completely at random, picking tapes from a huge box next to his chair.

Andrew Blum – Close Encounters with the Internet

When I lived in Calabria it was impossible to transfer files that were bigger than 500Mb. Not even the computer shops in the capital of the region could do this for you. One day a happy rumour began to spread: The internet had arrived. On all the little roads that crossed villages and rural area, a ditch was made through the asfalt. On one occasion I coud see this work in action. We stopped the car and  asked the young man in the excavator. Yes, he confirmed, it is the…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show #21 – Counterculture

LL dedicates an hour to counterculture. What is counterculture? In football it is the successor to catenaccio, the system perfected by Helenio Herrera. In society it is something different. Some of the captions down here can give an indcation. So can the music. But LL wouldn’t be LL without throwing a lifeline that connects the past with the present, and this lifeline, making a beautiful arch over the golden years of counterculture can serve as your rainbow. Enjoy. LITTER Legend 1. Mick Farren – Mona (A Fragment) Carnivorus Circus Part…
