Harold Schellinx – Très Grande Collage

For many years Harold Schellinx has been collecting snippets of tapes that had escaped from their cases for some reason and ended up alone and abandoned. If you listen to the restored tapes you can hear the dirt of the street, and if you try to go a little bit further you might even be able to listen into the past, and visualise it together with all its lost, decayed, disappeared or aged artefacts. Harold says: “ The TGC, the ‘Très Grande Collage’, is a fourteen hour chain of sound…

February -14 hours of found tapes- Harold Schellinx’s Très Grande Collage

During the month of February we transmit Harold Schellinx’s Très Grande Collage. On several days in the months you can tune in to fourteen hours of found tape sounds. Harold has been collecting snippets of tapes that had escaped the cases for some reason and ended up in the gutter, on the pavement, or as Harold says:”distinct magnetic audio tapes, some of them still more or less intact, but most of them reduced to clods, knots and wads, that I picked up from the shoulders of highways, from pavements and…

Dai Coelacanth – Nancy talks to the Crayfish

Nancy is back again. But who is she? Words. Phrases. Chants. Sounds from a distinct world. The Supremes…why? Follow Dai on his new adventure. In his own words: “Nancy was always forgetting who she was. Sometimes she thought she was a large caterpillar crawling along the surface of an apple. She was drowning in bad habits but she was good with eggs. Growths are growths. Rats are rats. Rats have been in my pocket. I’ve got nothing left but eggs. I was cutting my hedge with teeth. It’s Sunday morning….

Timothy Snyder – On Language and “Not Even Fascism”

On a dark and cold Winter’s day I travelled to the very west of Berlin, to Wannsee. I had my little walkman with me. I wanted to record another Letter from Berlin. The walkman stopped working, and it got back into a short-lived existence when I stood on the platform of the S-Bahn station, waiting for the train to get back home.   I wanted to record impressions and parts of Timonthy Snyder’s lecture at the American Academy in Berlin. You can read a résumé of the evening on the…

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. November 2018 in Berlin. Emmanuel Rébus was on a short visit. I had asked a sound colleague if we (half-Diktat) could do a short set as an opening on an evening organised by him. Said colleague…

Anders Östberg – Time Signal Stations

Anders Östberg’s previous contributions were songs and sounds that were part of his vast record collection. That was then. His new show ‘Time Signal Stations’ could be the treasure he has brought back from an expedition deep into radio land. It must have been a voyage that took him beyond the borders of time, into otherworldy experiences that yet seem so very familiar. Maybe this, what you will hear in his show, is what the earth will sound like, long after it has disappeared. Anders says: What you will about…
