Taniel Morales Interview by Adrian Shephard

I am listening now. Taniel arrives in Berlin from the Malta festival in Poznan, Poland. Taniel electrocutes himself. He calls it chemic bending. Rocks have electric proprieties, for instance. He translates this to sound. (four minutes into the interview, now) Taniel changes Coke into water (Coca-Cola), is said in the background. He is interested in the water of the coca-cola, because it must be very nice water, he says. The process is turned into sound. The Radio plays the sound of it. (six minutes into the interview) Taniel explains the…

From Maidan to MH17

At the beginnings of this year the King of The Netherlands met that person during the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. At the same moment Russian troops invaded Crimea. It was the start of the things that would come. Earlier this year there was a new wave of protests in Kiev. I didn’t pay too much attention to it, because people came to Maidan Square quite regularly to set up their tents and give voice to their dissatisfaction.

Rinus Radio Broadcast Company – ft Interview with Dmytro Fedorenko about East Ukraine

A couple of weeks ago I (Rinus Van Alebeek) stayed some days in the Oranien Studio. That was a good chance to interrupt the regular programs and go live on air. Over the years our archive with CD’s, Vinyl given by friends and Records found in the trash has grown extensively. I decided to play this music, and act as a normal DJ, given information on the tracks and, if possible, on the releases themselves. But it was also time to connect with our friend Dmytro Fedorenko in Kiev. We…

Adrian Shephard – Books not Film Part 2 with Peter Dollins

The Wirebender presents Bowie Electronica / Capsule and Spacehead

Simon Wade presents The Wirebender, a selection of rare and remarkable recordings from his vast archive. This episode David Bowie’s electronic -Berlin- period takes up a great part. In Simon’s own words: “Rex Offender’s mix of early Bowie Electronica caught the attention of Carlos Alomar who was very enthusiastic about it and contacted me, congratulating me by email. Less enthusiastic were the legal team at Soundcloud who took it down shortly afterwards! Undeterred I re-present a mix of David Bowie’s electronic  instrumentals. Having listened back over the proceeding year I’m caught by its…
