Rinus Van Alebeek – Letter from Amsterdam and 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 this letter from Amsterdam and Berlin I didn’t do any talking. On side A I recorded sounds from Amsterdam, on side B I recorded sounds from Berlin. Right at the middle of both sides…

Wednesday 14 Nov 2018 – LIVE – interview with Theo Ploeg

On an visit to Berlin with his students, Theo Ploeg comes to the Radio On studio to talk about Bauhaus, Berlin, design, vaporwave, accelarationism, possible futures, living in an anti-city and whatever the evening has in store for us.

Dai Coelacanth – Distant Aphid turn the wheel of scabs

Dai Coelacanth: “Elizabeth hated her brother. The family bought him at auction. When they got him home he was covered in a noxious dust. He had to live in the barn for the first three years. And now he was in the house. He had a room filled with rare antiquities. He drank blood straight from the sack. Mother gifted him shares in a successful worm farm. Father begged him for his blessings. What did Elizabeth get, as the true born, the rightful heir? They hired unskilled thugs to pull…

Agnès Pe – Mitt Paté #30, MP5

sparrows on the wooden floor of my balcony. bread crumbs. their beaks hit the boards. an empty honey jar next to the plants. wasps get drunk and lay motionless on the bottom. A grey day A day for a something A something to remember A something that hurts. Sounds live behind walls. the good thing about the internet is that it erases all the information of the non-internet world. a new era of great explorations draws near. Sounds live in headphones. mute. Playlist MITT PATÉ #30 MP5 UV – exp…

electro-haram and beyond

New to Radio On and so beautiful. We open up to the east and welcome electro-haram. They find sounds on sidewalks, in abandoned houses, in cardboard boxes under an office desk, behind the wallpaper, in chimneys, but also in less profanic places like flea markets or thrift stores. The show will be a first in a series. Every-day-situations or other conversations and musics from a near or distant past are brought to life again. Electro-haram is a time-travelling experience into post soviet times and maybe even beyond. In their own…

Alan Dunn & Derek Beaulieu – (drowned out by traffic noise): a, A Novel

Alan Dunn, based in Leeds, works with students, teaches and produces great works of sonic art. His students learn how to make radiophonic works, radio plays or plain sonic weirdness that after all is not that weird at all. Alan’s solo works and his work with students are regularly broadcasted by our radio station. For this production he teamed up with Derek Beaulieu. Also in a, A Novel Alan evokes the sehnsucht that was so typical of 1980s post-punk music in the UK. Other elements are added that will make…

Don Campau – Museum Pieces

Don Campau is with Radio On for only a brief moment in his career. But I can’t remember when he did his first show for us. His choice had always been from his vast collection of cassettes. In his shows you could listen to sounds from the 1970s up to the now. One day Don cleared his garage and sent all the cassettes to Zeppelin City in Germany. This was not the end of the world. Don took us on a journey to the past and programmed some shows he…

Anne-F Jacques – Sounds for the Post-Peak Oil 14

Anne-F Jacques is with us for a number of years now. Based in Montreal, Anne’s dealings with sound bring her to places all over the world. Time flies everywhere. We are glad that she came back to us on the wings of time with a very pleasing report from La Paz in Bolivia. In this new episode of the post-peak oil Anne-F guides us through streets and spaces of La Paz. And it’s a delightful and inviting tour. Bolivia seems just around the corner. In Anne’s words one month in…
