Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and Hazel Hill McCarthy Talk on Bight of the Twin at CTM Festival

On the 1st of February Adrian Shephard walked to Kunsthaus Bethanien in Berlin, Kreuzberg. He was going to attend a talk that was organised by the CTM festival. I cite from the CTM information. “Bight of the Twin,” a film created by Hazel Hill McCarthy III, documents McCarthy and P-Orridge’s trip to Benin to explore the origins of the ancient Vodoun (Voodoo) religion. The journey’s focus changed dramatically when, in the process of their research, P-Orridge was “serendipitously initiated” into an ancient ritual known as the “twin fetish.” This practice,…

Interview with Sudden Infant and their Chauffeur

On the occasion of their European Tour 2016, two members of Sudden Infant, (Joke Lanz and Christian Weber) and their chauffeur and merch man Mario Paserotti came to the Radio On Studio in Berlin. By meeting people, who don’t know anything about the sounds and music, that we present on Radio On, nor have any clue, who these people are that appear as guests on our shows, I have come to understand, that most of our programs are some kind of inside job. You are here, because you know, and not…

Radio On Unknown – Barbara Lázara interviews Adrian Shephard

There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy. – Hamlet (1.5.167-8), Hamlet to Horatio Ever since the Shakespeare quote became part of a national heritage, the Brits seem to have spend most of their lives in exploring the unknown side of ‘things.’ In the interview with Adrian Shephard, Adrian at some point expresses a feeling of nostalgia for the Victorian age when even electricity was regarded as something occult. Barbara Lázara appeared as a guest in the Oranien studio a few times….

Radio On Money, an interview with I-Wei Judi Li by Shephard/Van Alebeek

The interview with critical thinker/artist and former banker I-Wei Judy Li was made in the kitchen of the former Staalplaat shop on the Flughafenstrasse in Berlin, Neukölln. There is mention of the upcoming Olympic Games in London which gives the talk a faint historic aura. I-Wei was born in Taiwan and moved to Canada with her younger brother while still in her teens: A father who loves ballroom dancing,  grandmother and an arranged marriage, being a banker in Kenia, belonging to an astronaut family, Obama as grandma, where are the big…

Radio On Lost, a radioplay by Adrian Shephard and Rinus Van Alebeek

From the depths of the Radio On Archive comes a radio show by Shephard and Van Alebeek that probably never reached any listener at all. What starts as an outburst of total confusion evolves into a radioplay, in which Shephard and Van Alebeek become radionauts lost in space. Their only salvation is to follow the radiowaves. They go down in a cosmic storm of voices, end up in distant civilisations, transform into radio particles, pick up conversations, but they never seem to find ground. Comes with a haunting sound track….

Ben Roberts, a Brit in Madrid has been collecting found tapes ever since his youngest youth. What started in thrift stores in his hometown has developed into a fascination that borders at science. Gifted with a hypered sense of being able to read and see into the world that unspools before his very ears, he detects the signs of the past times. In the Ben Roberts Show he…

Brainhall Art Production presents The Durian Brothers

Andreas Glauser from brainhall art production introduces The Durian Brothers. In a very well produced, thoroughly old-style edited show Andreas plays the sounds of the trio, and speaks with one of its members to get to know about their working methods and their approaches. From a multi-bouncing plingplung and kammedumme – kammedumme one can recognize influences of the after-rain in Berlin, the U-Bahn passing overground on a track of heavy iron, but also the early experiments of Kraftwerk or the joys of killing time with a record player rotating without…
