APDM #22 – I’d Love to Change the World by William Nurdin and Friends

“Number 522 of the itinerant radio open stages session” you can read in William’s words. By now he should know what he is doing. I heard fragments of it when I was reading a novel set during The Great War, in the trenches of northern France. The sounds I heard connected with the visions provoked by the words I read. Music brought to its borders, as William does, opens unexpected and unnoticed corners of the mind; it explores the boundaries of our freedom. It is a way of communicating, too….

A P D M – Archaeological, by William Nurdin

APDM#17 is a cut of five encounters. Not a culinary or panoramic ride through France but a whole different approach to the emotions and energy and expressions of every day life that can be found at a given place…
