Agnès Pe – Mitt Paté #29 (FEAR NO MUSIC)

This will be a cinematographic experience, you think. Agnès Pe will take us to the pacific, wartime pacific where big warships slide slowly through the waters. The wind carries a song. A Japanese soldier washes his clothes on the beach. Soft seats, the darkness of the cinema, faces light up in the glow of a sunny day a long time ago. The lie of watching something truthful. Something happens. You are no longer in your seat. Colours and sounds dissolve, flow around, merge into images and become abstract again. Does…

Dai Coelacanth – Drunk Skulls in Slime/Strange Strange Love

Tiny sleepy creature under my shoe stick to it and travel with me while I walk to the ruin of the cathedral. Tiny slimy sleepy creature eat a hole eat part of my sock it is your blanket. Gangreen at home an old radio transmits world war news the surgeon refuses to die. The magazine is soaked An ink tattoo on the wet t-shirt Carry the headlines on your ribs endless. Collage – voices – announcements – damaged tape – street poetry – England – Dai Coelacanth This is what…

Dai Coelacanth – A French Corpse is a delicacy on Mars

A knock on the door. At this hour. Who could that be. Full moon peeks in through the attic window. The plant recites Kierkegaard. Red light ceiling. A muted comedian. More insistent knocking on the door. Get up from the chair. The bottle falls down. Shock-relief: It’s empty. Ear to the door. Someone goes down the stairs, fast. An empty milk carton on the doormat. Apparently empty. A cassette tape wrapped in a piece of paper. It’s a letter. Dai Coelacanth is back from somewhere. But from where? And who…

Grupa Etyka Kurpina – Special Mix for Radio ON

The man behind G.E.K. is Adam Frankiewicz. He is one of the outstanding exponents of the current Polish wave of young musicians, who use the cassette tape as their (publishing) medium. This audio collage works on various levels. Of course it is, as you will hear, an exiting and energetic mix and as such it can be seen as a mixtape of sorts. Superated that level there is the confluence of audio snippets from different origins. Movie scores and contemporary trash music leak through the audio lines, and once the…

Agnès Pe – Mitt Paté in Buenos Aires

This edition of Mitt Paté was made in Buenos Aires. Agnès was there for an artistic enterprise. It meant of course that she had to leave her natural habitat, Madrid, and encounter new impressions. She had to experience winter during summertime. It took her a bit longer to construct a new collage. But it was well worth the wait. I come to be convinced that Agnès is unique in her approach. She connects a high sensitivity to the current Zeitgeist, changes observations into moods, and picks from a rich palette…

Mitt paté #9 conducted by Agnès Pe

Hang on. Today I read about a resurrected rockstar. In the old times he heard voices in his head. To suppress those voices he put on the TV set, two radio’s and two amplifiers feedbacking the guitar, full blast. At that moment it was silent in his head, and he could go to sleep. Of course you won’t hear silence in Agnès Mittpaté #9. You will hear the sound of colours exploding. I edited the playlist into something that looks like a long poem. My excuse to those involved. I…
