HCut up Paper Economy, collage of voices and visions by Markus Stein

Markus Stein does these things. He uses recordings he made in which people talk about their experiences as a youngster in the newly formed Germany (when the BRD and the DDR were glued together). And he uses snippets of interviews in which we hear talk about radio art and the sense of it all. And somewhere in between all the voices you will hear strange cut-up collaging soundbits that form new pieces of contemporary music. Is there a hidden message? Is there a hidden message in all the words that…

Don`t DJ & Glauser – Live Radio Session on Air, Berlin

On  Saturday the 7th of November Andreas Glauser returned to Berlin. With some feeling for understatement he proposed to organise a collision. That’s what you do when you’re from Switzerland. During sixty minutes Don’t DJ and Glauser let Sequencer collide with Synthesizer, effects and noise – live from the Oranien Studio. The results sounded like solar flares, rusty bicycles on Mars up to the approach to and landing on The Forbidden Planet Adrian Shepard was on the microphone to introduce the session.

Rinus Van Alebeek presents Radio di Vetro -Trilogy-

  Radio di Vetro is a three part radio program, that was first broadcasted live from Rome. It was an unofficial official part of the Teatri di Vetro festival. The three parts are called Masquerade A Short History of Theatre Cut Heads Cut Money   While in Masquerade the content is made up of tape noises put together in an abstract collagist way, the second and third part are informative and give insight in power relations and historic characters (fictional or not). The third, conclusive part contains a manifesto of…

The Korean Loudspeaker War by Antonio Mainenti

South Korea erected giant units on its border, each of them consisted of megaphones rich with decibels. The idea was to transmit korean pop music, und thus inform the poor people of North Korean what the good life was about. Antonio Mainenti reconstructed what the border zone more or less could sound like. K-pop meshes and clashes with Kim’s countermeasures. In the studio Antonio meshes and clashes with Rinus Van Alebeek (yes, that’s me) comments and suggestions. What other use could be found for those loudspeakers? What would you do…

Revolutions in Graphic Design by Alan Dunn

Says Alan Dunn: Since 2007 I have been collecting examples of people recording the word ‘revolution’ – archives, artists, students, children. Each generation seems to want to record it, for posterity, to sound like they want to change the world. I am interested in the sound of the word, how it is broken down and how it crosses almost every genre – pop, punk, reggae, techno, folk, metal etc. Says I (=Rinus van Alebeek) The result is like a long list of footnotes to an essay. We don’t have the essay….

BEHAVE! Lounge Music for the Post-Nuclear Generation

Shephard & Van Alebeek set off for maybe the most experimental show radio can offer nowadays. You can join in on an attempt to create a collective laboratory for the post-nuclear notion. BEHAVE! Lounge Music for the Post Nuclear Generation is an improvised essay , a narration, a thought process. But it is also a program in which long pieces of music are played and considered to be the carriers of the post nuclear notion. BEHAVE! Lounge Music for the Post Nuclear Generation starts from the idea that the first…
