Tapes from Istanbul – Adrian Shephard (August 2015)

When I listened to Tapes from Istanbul, through my headphones, I was thrilled from the very first steps that Adrian described. I had to think about this, because my excitement went beyond those feelings, which normally make my senses wobble when listening to anything audio. It was very clear, that something else was going on. The Istanbul Tapes tell a story, that we thought to have lost, somewhere around the time when television became a medium for the masses. Before that time, places were still exotic. And the main reason…

26. February: 12&12 – 24 Hours of Addis Ababa by Jeroen Visser, 2 A.M. – 6 A.M.

This is 12&12, an audible day in the life in Ethiopia’s capital Addis Ababa. 12 hours of day, and 12 hours of night, which coincide quite exact with the sunrise and sunset, the main reason why the Ethiopian time count starts at 6 in the morning, meaning at 7 there is 1 hour of sunshine, etc. Which procedure repeats in the evening, when sun sets at 6, so at 7 there is 1 hour of darkness, etc. 12&12 tells the story in audio-only of a day in the life by…

Radio On Kino – reportage from Mim King interviewed by Adrian Shephard

It’s often the case that visitors to berlin explore and discover more than the residents. The performance artist Mim King has been coming to Berlin years before the wall came down and has a particular relationship with the city. In this interview she positively ‘plops’ herself (her words) as she reports on the kino museum in Potsdamer Platz (free entry on Thursdays 16.00-20:00). ‘It’s full of astronauts, aliens and angels’ – Ever wondered where that armor ended up from ‘wings of desire’ ? Yes it’s here as well ! –…

Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and Hazel Hill McCarthy Talk on Bight of the Twin at CTM Festival

On the 1st of February Adrian Shephard walked to Kunsthaus Bethanien in Berlin, Kreuzberg. He was going to attend a talk that was organised by the CTM festival. I cite from the CTM information. “Bight of the Twin,” a film created by Hazel Hill McCarthy III, documents McCarthy and P-Orridge’s trip to Benin to explore the origins of the ancient Vodoun (Voodoo) religion. The journey’s focus changed dramatically when, in the process of their research, P-Orridge was “serendipitously initiated” into an ancient ritual known as the “twin fetish.” This practice,…

Election Day and Women’s March, visions and reports from Washington DC

Radio On asked their friends in the Washington DC area to send in some sounds to commemorate the second coming of Jesus Christ on earth in the person of a flambeed president. You can find enough words on that topic. The internet and press pages seem to vomit his picture and words these days. We at Radio On are waiting for the blockbuster 100 days that shook the world and wonder if you can already place bets on the name of the country he will choose when he has to go in…
