The Wirebender presents The Sonic Trail

Simon Wade, our man in London has compiled a collage that spans from smooth atmospheric music, via a lecture to memories of a holiday in Ireland. In the middle of the show Ian Rawes makes an appearance. He gives a talk on ‘How to Find Interesting Sounds.’ and plays some examples of such sounds. Ian Rawes is the mastermind behind the London Sound Survey, a website with a growing collection of (historical) recordings, sound maps and what you have.   Word to Simon:   “My earliest memories of The Irresistible…

Garden 95 by Junie Crawford

Out of the blue we got a request by someone in Montréal, Junie Crawford his name. He described his work as homemade tape field recordings cut into loops and played back through various means (Marantz PMD222, kids toys, broken tape recorders from the 60s, sometimes just tape heads partially submerged in alcohol, etc etc), combined with interviews and found sound, to create immersive sonic environments that address issues of capital, race, human geography, placelessness, and power. We went to listen some of his shows on a Montréal based radio, and…

Don Campau’s No Pigeonholes – Cassette culture 1986-1997

Don Campau presents a show every month. In each show he plays tracks from cassettes that he received with the post. Thousands of cassettes found their way to his tape player. Relations were built with home-tapers around the world. In an attempt to document last century’s cassette culture Don has set up an archive, to which new features are added regularly. Don received cassettes from a great variety of musicians. Every genre was welcome, as long as music and tape were produced at home. The present show mirrors perfectly the…

William Nurdin and Guests: Au Pays Des Merveilles – Choose your Destiny

Au Pays Des Merveilles is an itinerant Radio Show and could be considered as Nurdin’s personal barometer, a sonic report of his encounters during his travels and tours. The shows, therefore, offer also an insight in the various off-institutional DIY-scenes and the current state of audio/radio experimentations.

Excavation Series 7 – You/In/Be/Arc

Kev C. has sent us two tapes in the post. Both tapes got played and commented on our Tape Review Show. To be honest, the second tape didn’t get much airplay as such. It was used to add sounds in a spontaneous session with Jeff Surak and Adrian Shephard. (…) Back home, I played the tape in my kitchen. I liked it. It was the only tape I played for a couple of days. Kev had taken sound works from various places around the web, and had created a mixtape….

Cassette Review: F. Ampism – Black Moss Pot

First I thought of ragdolls. They take on life and dance around in a children’s dreamstate. It is all very British, because these dolls are made in the Victorian age and bring memories of a grand empire, children wearing big straw heads, riding donkey-carts meeting an Indian Sultan on the back of an elephant. The image, I agree, was a bit silly. And the music on the tape shouldn’t stop there, even if you would think of a Powell and Pressburger movie, in which the chalk-faced dolls became actors and…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – The Don Campau Special 2

Lord Litter’s second part of the special on Don Campau leads us from the years of punk to the years of, yes what..transition? Our LL has selected songs that point out the skills of Don as a guitar player, but also as a lyricist. Starting in the early 1980s the compositions still follow the different genre’s of that time, but once the cassettes started to fill the postbox, Don Campau gives way to more experiments. I especially like the “complex” compositions that bear traces of the American musical, that, in…
