Aubrey! – A conversation with Aubrey Heichemer by Shephard/Van Alebeek

In an other program here on Radio On Adrian Shephard expressed his fascination for the Victorian Age, a time when electricity was believed to be an occult force. But it was also the time people believed in nymphs and other little creatures that could talk to us in our dreams or in the woods. Adrian lives in a different century, but, nonetheless, when in that century somewhere in the far east of Berlin, in a factory hall that was used equally by the nazi regime as the DDR funkadelics, but…

The Wirebender presents David Asher and the Sounds of Sherwood

Once upon a time there was punk. Punk was full of anger and young people who couldn’t really play their instruments. All that was not important. Important was the non-importance of their looks. Trash. In a way they copied the trash culture of the tabloids, added a moral and a shocking stance and put this mirror up to the media of those days. But put a mirror in front of a multi-faced monster and it will change its looks until it shines pretty again. Fourty years later the moralistic and…

Interview – Shephard/Van Alebeek talk with Barbara Lazara and Gaia

Shephard and Van Alebeek’s special way to put their guests at ease here demonstrated in an interview/talk with Barbara Lazara and Gaia. Barbara from the hot bloodrush capital of Mexico, on a temporary leave in Berlin; Gaia from somewhere in Italy on a permanent stay in Berlin. One of them works with voice, the other with art spaces. Information dull enough to scare any committed listener. But just have a look at them. You think we shared one dull moment? You want to submit your works or tapes/CDs/Vinyls released by…

Taniel Morales Interview by Adrian Shephard

I am listening now. Taniel arrives in Berlin from the Malta festival in Poznan, Poland. Taniel electrocutes himself. He calls it chemic bending. Rocks have electric proprieties, for instance. He translates this to sound. (four minutes into the interview, now) Taniel changes Coke into water (Coca-Cola), is said in the background. He is interested in the water of the coca-cola, because it must be very nice water, he says. The process is turned into sound. The Radio plays the sound of it. (six minutes into the interview) Taniel explains the…

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…

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…
