Agn̬s Pe РMit Pat̩ #16, Life Forms

I tried to listen to this edition of Mit Paté while I was doing some work. In fact, I tried twice. It was impossible. This made me think. To understand what I thought, you need to know that one of my fascinations is the process, how from dead material, life forms came into existence, indeed, the origins of life. Molecules splashing around in primordial soup, not bothering about being alife or not, suddenly got together, some elements got a different meaning, and see: within the structures, all was different. And…

Alan Dunn and Students – Sleep Cube

Alan Dunn, our man in Leeds, doesnot only assemble radiophonic works from sonic scraps he finds in the junkyard of radioland, he is also on a mission. He goes out in the country, meets up with students, and sometimes introduces them to the wonderful world of selfmade recordings. Radio On is glad to give him and his students the opportunity to broadcast the result. After all, our radio is an ongoing experiment, a laboratory for ideas. There is a couple of ways for listening to the work Sleep Cube. But…

Anne-f Jacques – sounds for the post-peak oil, 12

I listened to Anne-f Jacques’ collage ( or introspective diary or sonic representation of a bicycle ride or fantasy-play of tapes talking to each other through their envelopes, while they wait to be picked up from the doormat) twice, because I wanted to be sure that the replay function was working alright. I thought it stopped too soon. It didn’t. Thirty minutes passed by like a swift breeze, a moment of life that you forget about everything. Anne-f is a very friendly person, someone to cherish in these times full…

Alan Dunn: The Sounds of Ideas Forming, Volume 4 – Leaving

Alan Dunn, radio-artist and assistant professor at the Leeds Beckett University, is one of our regular contributors. As an assistant professor he is involved in comunal projects and workshops of which the result is, often, a gesamtkunstwerk of audio and sculpture, or a radio-play. Examples of these works are broadcasted by us on an irregular basis. As a radio-artist he contributes with collages, but of such quality that the nominator ‘collage’ should be extended to works of art, that are completely made of borrowed pieces of music and spoken word, resulting…

Sounds for the post-peak Oil, #11 by Anne-F Jacques

This new episode of Sounds for the post-peak Oil by our Montréal based friend Anne-F Jacques is another work of Radio Art that balances on notions of mail art, domestic silence and fragments from an Audio Diary. The result is intimate as a morning smelling of coffee and the arrival of autumn and as intriguing as the first steps into a new town. You can become a part of Anne-F’s work of sounds by simply sending her Audio by snail mail. You might get a cassette in return, as Anne…

Radio On Lost, a radioplay by Adrian Shephard and Rinus Van Alebeek

From the depths of the Radio On Archive comes a radio show by Shephard and Van Alebeek that probably never reached any listener at all. What starts as an outburst of total confusion evolves into a radioplay, in which Shephard and Van Alebeek become radionauts lost in space. Their only salvation is to follow the radiowaves. They go down in a cosmic storm of voices, end up in distant civilisations, transform into radio particles, pick up conversations, but they never seem to find ground. Comes with a haunting sound track….

Post Peak Oil #9 – Anne F Jacques

A new programm by Anne F Jacques, a result of her visit to and tour of Japan. Hear an impressionist report of that journey: visions in sound. Anne’s words “Slurping soba at a stand-up noodle bar under the train station; getting ready to play with my newly met friend Takamitsu in his one-piece apartment, while eating mushroom-shaped cookies; various intersections and street corners; an excerpt from an improvisation with takahiro Kawaguchi and Makoto Oshiro at Ftarri in Tokyo; and rolling on disjointed tiles on my bicycle.” Please check the Schedule…

Höllentag Spezial by Jeff Surak

One of the presents we got at the end of last year was Jeff Surak’s Höllentag Spezial. Höllentag Spezial was made with one record player, one recorder and a lot of records. Jeff played locked grooves. If the needle is caught in a locked groove it plays only the piece of music or sound that can be captured in a full spin. The result is a series of repetitions, that can be experienced as mechanic or trance-inducing or simply musical. Especially for its repetitious form, the mechanical element prevails, and…
