MA/68 by Alan Dunn and Students

Alan Dunn, our man in the UK, does a lot of sound words with students of various academies or universities, often young men and women who have no experience in sound art. The present collage is close to a re-enactment of the Paris student revolt of May 1968. Enthusiasm, agitation, poetry, street riots, political statements, manifesto’s, but also eery imaginary scenes from dark sci-fi movies are part of the composition. Does this give the listener something to think about? Is there something to think about at all in these times?…

Andreas Glauser has looked around and found something to bring home.

Zine-ism, Interview with Nina Prader and John Z Komurki

  Nina Prader runs Lady Liberty Press. John Z Komurki, among other things, has written a book, called Stationery Fever. Both, now residents of Berlin, care for printed matter and a lot of things that come with it. You think it is boring to talk about pencils? Wait until you hear John bring in stories about John Steinbeck, Napoleon and Freud. And after the pencils are sharpened, the conversation takes us to the zine. Who, why, why not, where, what and what else. Digital versus analogue. The tactile and the…

Junie Crawford: Garden 95 – New Devotional (Episode 7)

    Junie is our youngest Radio On host. His ears and intuition are close to music, and immersed in life. At such a young age the space of the land is infinite and time is endless. The music that helps to define his life now is the dark room of his future, where he will develop some of his memories. Junie says: This is an attempt to document a very American sound, and a very American feeling. The first and only show where it’s (mostly) other people’s music. Cooking…

Agnès Pe – Mitt Paté (Lecture on Musical Sound)

Imagine a place where you can see seven fast food shops in one second. Can’t be too hard. Imagine the people in the pedestrian’s zone that go with it. Also this can’t be too difficult.

Now imagine you start walking, and that you are with someone. You discuss a very profound problem. You wish you could speak French, and that this, what you…

The Wirebender presents All shook up at W10

For this show of The Wirebender we got a perfect write-up from Simon Wade, our man in London. “It was a great opportunity to catch up with Martin from Taurus Tracker. I interviewed him at a recent event at the Mau mau bar in London’s Portobello Road. Taurus Tracker began in 2006, when Allison the drummer ex Raincoats and Martin recorded demos. The results were so encouraging that they were empowered to recruit a bassist and take the band out. Mick Jones, ex of The Clash, so much so he’s…

Rinus Van Alebeek – Letter from Berlin

I moved back to Berlin in the month of February 2018. The audio reports that I started in Poland will continue, albeit in a different form. I will still use my Sony Walkman, walk and talk, observe, think aloud and allow snippets of every day life to land on the surface of the magnetic tape. In the fourth letter from Berlin I visit the opening night of the exhibition The Superusers – Mega Myriad Machine. I spoke with Scott Sinclair who is one of the Super Users and recorded his concert….
