Dai Coelacanth – Love Station Yaba

Dare to listen. Dai to listen. Scraps, magnetic tape filth, hoarse voices, 21st century leaks, brutalist tapes, concrete footprints, yesterday’s news. A huge new collage, harsh sound poem by Dai Coelacanth. Your speakers never sounded so true to life. in Dai’s words “There’s something I forgot to tell you. It’s about a memory. The fair was in town and I was going to go with a neighbour … but she died in a horrific accident. Down by the river where the construction work is going on. New buildings for new…

Agnès Pe – Mitt Paté #29 (FEAR NO MUSIC)

This will be a cinematographic experience, you think. Agnès Pe will take us to the pacific, wartime pacific where big warships slide slowly through the waters. The wind carries a song. A Japanese soldier washes his clothes on the beach. Soft seats, the darkness of the cinema, faces light up in the glow of a sunny day a long time ago. The lie of watching something truthful. Something happens. You are no longer in your seat. Colours and sounds dissolve, flow around, merge into images and become abstract again. Does…

Radio On in the Promised Land ( on all Hallow’s eve)

Adrian Shephard resurrected an ancient Radio On show from the data cemetery. He washed the corpse, connected some wires, waited for a thunder storm, made sure that the lightning would strike and voilà, the voices came back, the characters took shape and there they were in the flesh and blood. A drama unfolds in which Lucifer shows God and his little helper around on his real estate. Ghost stories, the guillotine, cemeteries, the plague, a plan, a jester and a minstrel are just a few of the many elements of…

Dai Coelacanth – BEETLE-LIKE CREATURES IN A SMALL SPACECRAFT / SHAPE-SHIFTERS WORK IN TELEVISION

Any student at an advanced academy for music and assorted experimental sonic behaviour should be given a cassette walkman with an inbuilt microphone. Not to play all the sweet cassettes that grow from the big rose of audio tapes. It would serve as a recording tool. It would open new perspectives; it would open the ears to the very far end of lo-fi recordings. The recordings could reveal secrets of the mystic and the obvious and how these two worlds can meet. The works of Dai Coelacanth could be a…

Agnes Pé – Mitt Paté (DeWorm)

In the beginning is the beginning, but it is not always that obvious. I had to listen again. Observing my primal thoughts I was quite pleased with this radio of ours. We always tell our radiomakers to envision it as a laboratory. Agnes Pé is with us for almost three years, with every month a new show. And somehow these shows have become one and they have become a crystal ball. Look deep into the vague and bright colours and you will see something is taking shape. Back to the…

June Crawford – Garden.95 (Teenager 2014)

June Crawford picks up his guitar, a book, and as time disappears, a melancholy mood sneaks in. Something is happening on the front porch…what is it? In his own words “the spirit; new apartment; none pride; a guiding light; spat ‘bacca; all cash; bad fantasy; ugly double; pleased to be; no i; ruth; nancy; katie; kept the kid; boy as the knife; you on fire; killing the light; just cash; nothing lasts. Features a portion of “A Cheater’s Guide to Love” by Junot Diaz.” You want to submit your works…

The Nikolas Schreck Show – #OccupyBBC

Nikolas Schreck and Ania PsH present a revolutionary action. Dressed up like militants they manage to time travel to 1968. They storm the BBC studio, interrupt a program hosted by an outdated BBC presenter (Adrian Shephard) and take over. They start a revolution, drop LSD, and then it goes into orbit, far out. So, Tune in, Turn on, Drop out. And join the trip. The Nikolas Schreck Show is recorded and produced at the Radio On studio by Adrian Shephard. You want to submit your works or tapes/CDs/Vinyls released by…

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?…

Junie Crawford – Garden 95 / The Woods

Junie is our youngest programmaker. He will muse on his age in the words below. These words are now deeply rooted in the years 2016-2018. One day they will be history. Junie’s shows reflect transitory moments, a present that is about to fertilise the past. In his own words: “Most of this material is scrounged from a bedroom in Hochelaga, 2016. It was a record I made the summer of my 20th year, when I wasn’t much worried about anything but selling enough weed to keep buying and getting my…
