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 They storm the BBC studio, interrupt a program hosted by an outdated BBC presenter (Adrian Shephard) and take over.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…

Dai Coelacanth – A French Corpse is a delicacy on Mars

A knock on the door. At this hour. Who could that be. Full moon peeks in through the attic window. The plant recites Kierkegaard. Red light ceiling. A muted comedian. More insistent knocking on the door. Get up from the chair. The bottle falls down. Shock-relief: It’s empty. Ear to the door. Someone goes down the stairs, fast. An empty milk carton on the doormat. Apparently empty. A cassette tape wrapped in a piece of paper. It’s a letter. Dai Coelacanth is back from somewhere. But from where? And who…

Agnes Pé – Mitt Paté Number 25

This is episode 25 of Agnes’ series of mixes wherein music hallucinates its own existence and dreams of its future. It is a joyous new show, this celebrative moment. All the windows are open. Sunlight streams in. The last residues of last night’s tear gas tickle the trees and the birds: coughing birds, crying birds, birds that laugh through their tears. The King awakes and looks at his city: splendid city, golden flags and open windows everywhere. His crown still doesn’t fit. Agnes dances around in her room, dances around…

Brainhall Art Productions presents Alan Courtis

Andreas Glauser has been producing shows for Radio On since some years now. His Brainhall Art Productions have introduced us to a wide variety of artists via interviews, field recording projects, historic concert recordings, introductions to audio-zines, conceptual CDs. Listening to his shows is like entering a space where sounds and words buzz around your head like flies. In this show we hear Alan Courtis (wikiCourtis). He talks about his art, and plays examples of his latest releases for invisible city records and coherent states. Funny enough the names of…
