Mitt Paté #19 by Agnès Pe – I Hear a Symphony

Running around, wide-eyed, open circle-boingboing, we hang from a rubber belt. The world is a bad whisper. The Queen anthem, finally, here’s the version that should be played in every stadium. The motorgang argues over a quarter-pounder hamburger. Stomach moves, dub-step burbs, that’s how we pray nowadays. The merry-go-round dropped acid. My first Vespa. Rome is so great. When gypsies walk backwards they look like arabs disappearing in the rain. The real estate agent showed the bathroom and sang ‘Eye of the Tiger.’ You should have seen him move. But…

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…

Agnès Pe – Mitt Paté, Life Forms

I tried to listen to this edition of Mitt 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…

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…

Radio On DNA by Rinus Van Alebeek

This thirty minutes show is built around a talk I (=Rinus Van Alebeek) had with Ben Roberts in Madrid. Instead of editing our conversation down to the format of an informative radio program about found sound, I decided to cut it up and mistreat it. I added snippets of music from my collection. Only one piece is played in its full length: maremotoreta by Magmadam, a duo from Madrid. All other sounds I found drifting around in the universe of the world wide web, a place, we should know by…

I say, after a long run, starting of with…

HCut up Paper Economy, collage of voices and visions by Markus Stein

Markus Stein does these things. He uses recordings he made in which people talk about their experiences as a youngster in the newly formed Germany (when the BRD and the DDR were glued together). And he uses snippets of interviews in which we hear talk about radio art and the sense of it all. And somewhere in between all the voices you will hear strange cut-up collaging soundbits that form new pieces of contemporary music. Is there a hidden message? Is there a hidden message in all the words that…

Radio Testcard #1 – The Illusion of Meat

A new program here on Radio On. Adrian Shephard was staring out of the window in his attic up to the moon and the stars (yes a lot of us Radio On-ers live in attics and stare out of the window up to the moon and the stars; but they don’t see a shooting star with a real flaming tail every night) when he saw a shooting star with a real flaming tail reach the stratosphere and explode into tiny shiny bits. At that point he heard a signal from…
