Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – Manifesto

No description of the content of this show, the playlist speaks for itself, but the publication of Lord Litter’s ‘Definition of what I try with my radiowork.’ “I use the expression *counterculture*. The expression *Underground* was corrupted for the first time when labels like CBS released LP compilations in the late 1960s with the *original* underground. The result was that challenging Hard_Rock_Jazz bands like Chicago ended up producing schmaltzy radio stuff. *Indie* is a definition of bands/sounds that I basically avoid – I don’t think that I have *indie* bands…

31.May 2018 at 21.00 Berlin Time – The Nikolas Schreck Show with the author Simon Wells

A new show by Nikolas Schreck, best to be described and announced in his own words. One side note on Simon Wells. It is not this Simon, that Nikolas has talked to, though it might have been interesting to hear Schreck on Schrek. The author Simon Wells, who you will hear in the interview, is hard to find. His books, however, are one click away. Word to Nikolas, “Tune in, Turn on and Drop Out to The Nikolas Schreck Show as we take you on a time travel trip to swinging…

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 fifth letter from Berlin I visited Miss Read in Haus Kulturen der Welt. Before I arrived I made a beuatiful bicycle ride that took me right to the heart of Berlin. Short interviews…

MA/68 by Alan Dunn and Students

Alan Dunn, our man in the UK, does a lot of sound works 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?…

Brainhall art production presents Microtopies 2017, 59 miniatures de música i geografia

Andreas Glauser has looked around and found something to bring home. From Zürich to Barcelona, crying out to the rest of the world and back again to Zürich, on his virtual trip he harvested miniatures in sound.

We present the Microtopies 2017 released…

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…
