Agnès Pe – Mitt Paté number 10

Enter the big house and you know on forehand there is at least three rooms, where you’d like to peek inside. The first room is of a strange luminar quality. Colors seem to have faded; everything is in a glossy black and white, from the times that camera’s were still made by hand. A couple of men, one single woman seem to be frozen, show an eternal smile. There are reel to reel machines and a window that looks over the roofs of a big European city. The second room…

The Scratched Vinyl Show 4, Sunday Loops – By Adrian Shephard

Writing about the previous Scratched Vinyl Show, I mentioned the emblematic book about Berlin by Alfred Döblin, Berlin Alexanderplatz. From that book, the main character, Franz Biberkopf walks into the fourth Scratched Vinyl Show, only to disappear again. Biberkopf was tossed and turned by fate, and it was fate that brought his downfall. When Biberkopf appears, here and now, in this radio show, not a single listener will be aware of this fact. But it happens right at the beginning, when Adrian travels to the far west of Berlin to…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – Going to the Movies

LL goes to the movies. He grew up in Berlin. That’s why he knows what it means. Take a look at this list and discover for yourself, that the city you live or lived in, visited once or more often is, has figured in numerous movies. It is almost impossible to leave your house and avoid to walk right into an imaginary movie, or onto the streets that have become immortalized. So, if you are in Berlin, put on your headphones, connect to Radio On, and start visiting those movies….

Don Campau, No Pigeonholes, Special on the Works of Charles Rice Goff III

A look at the album and track titles could be indicative enough, to give you an idea about the nature of the sounds and experimentations, that you will hear in this show. Don Campau knows a lot more. Says he, “I have known Charles for a very long time and have been amazed by his relentless and tireless pursuit of never ending, unusual creations. From his whimsical pop and covers side to his collaborations with many others in many ways, from his live performance work to his assiduously assembled audio…

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…

brainhall art productions presents H.P. Zinker, bootleg from 1992

Brainhall’s offering of a bootleg recording made in Lucerne in 1992 is a fine documental piece of music. You can hear the audience from very near, because the microphone of the recorder was among them. It also shows the energy of a small venue. And it takes the listener back to the early nineties, when after the waves of post-punk band ecclecticism became a part of the independent scene. H.P. Zinker (guitar, bass, drums) reminds of Hüsker Dü, but also of early 70s West Coast music (like the live album…

Brainhall Art Production presents Helios & Hess – Lump (CD/Book)

“Reisläufer (Swiss mercenaries) were notable for their service in foreign armies, especially the armies of the Kings of France, throughout the early modern period of European history, from the later Middle Ages into the Age of the European Enlightenment. The principal remnant of the practice is the Swiss guard at the Vatican.” “De Alpsege isch e Gibet, wo i de Alpe för de Schutz vo de Älpler und vom Vech jede Obed vomene Senn gsunge werd. Er isch hüt no i de Schwiiz, im Liechtestainische, im Vorarlbergische und im Allgoi feste Bistandtail vo de Sennetradition, bsunders i katholische Piet.” Andreas Glauser…

Mitt Paté #8 by Agnès Pe

It will take at least another fifty years before audio sculptures like Agnès Pe’s Mitt Paté will be recognized as fully independent art forms, and probably receive world wide exposure. Why fifty years? Well, it is because daughters generally love their mothers. Agnès and her generation are in their twenties now. In 2066 people might recognize how in the years 2010-2020 the last millennium kids operated far away from a world defined by opinionaters, commercialists and headlines. Listen to Mitt Paté and you see colors, many colors, as you can…
