A WORLD OF SOUNDS AND NOISES: GLUTTED WORDS by ANTONIO MAINENTI

The fourth program by Antonio Mainenti. After his ‘free education for children,’ ‘fight with bicycle’ and the birthday program for Sun Ra, productions which balanced finely between radioplay and experimentand were as light as a summer breeze on the seaside, he presents a world of sounds and noises: glutted words. Here in his own words: “Voices, noises, silences, and voices again. The world is a great symphony, a vibration flowing till the edge of the universe. A single voice can go through miles, a noise can overfly countries, the silence…

Vixing Vexations by Adrian Shephard, a Review of NKLive

On Saturday I was invited to broadcast 12 hours of Eric Satie’s vexations with live performances all night from midnight. The first ultra minimalist tonal piece performed with piano lasting an hour put me on edge except I was sitting by the window and could smell freshly baked bread from the bakerie below. The second hour long piece was performed as a human clock counting each second to a tonal ping for each 10 second interval My eyes started following wires in the room and then considered how pianos seem…

Jeff Surak – Radio On and on and on

Jeff Surak lives in Washington DC. He runs the zeromoon label. He is the artistic director of the sonic circuits festival. He is capable of creating the most beautiful sounds you ever heard. He is a fan of Radio On. In his piece he melts rare recordings, tour recordings, spoken word and the anthem of heavens into one long composition. Since I am a fan of his music too, I feel every word of mine would take away the mystery. You really have to listen for yourself. Radio On and…

Jason Honea – Brave Ear Show with Kasia Justka and Elisabeth Wood

Jason Honea is back on the track. Freshly in from California he jumps over to the Oranien Studio to bring us an evening of information and dislocation. His guests are Elisabeth Wood, a born Californian living in Berlin. She directs and composes for The Gray Voice Ensemble, a choir of thirty-five persons. If you want to find out, just like me, the secret about all these choirs popping up like mushrooms then join us and listen with ears wide open.

Adrian Shephard & Rinus van Alebeek – The Tempelhof Hour

Shortly after the Berlin citizens decided that Tempelhof should stay as it is, a giant open space in the middle of Berlin, Adrian Shephard and I (Rinus van Alebeek) did a live radio show from the Künstlerhaus Bethanien. Invited by Salon Bruit and Colaboradio we found ourselves in a cardboard setting, reminiscent of the shanty towns. The show evolves around the Tempelhof referendum, has a helicopter flying around in the studio, a live report from the bürgermeister’s -nude!- visit to Tempelhof, speeches in German and in English and the presence of…

Lepke B – Anti-Matter, Anti-DJ, Sonic Missile

Lepke B. is hard to find. Lepke B is an idea derived from science-fiction. Lepke B is the missing dimension in the world of matter and anti-matter.   His brain is a neuronic network spread out over melodies and words that have been transmitted since the beginning of times.   Life continues in an ever recomposing cloud filled with the loose threads of number one hit songs.   Lepke B is the song harvester, the sound weaver, the cloud burster.   Think, dream, forget. You want to submit your works…

Anne-F Jacques – sounds for the post-peak oil – episode 7

A new program from our Canadian friend Anne-F Jacques. And as always it offers a playful collage of sounds that can serve as a sound track to the micro-cosmos of every-one’s life. Although a tortoise man doesn’t appear on everybody’s doorstep. In Anne’s words: “Walking behind Nicolas Dion as a tortoise-man, carrying a stack of cardboard speakers on his back; an excerpt of “la défense”, a tape anonymously dropped at my door; and some mystery recordings found in a beginning of a spring cleaning.” Please check the Schedule for broadcast…
