Agnès Pe – Mitt Paté (Lecture on Musical Sound)

Imagine a place where you can see seven fast food shops in one second. Can’t be too hard. Imagine the people in the pedestrian’s zone that go with it. Also this can’t be too difficult. Imagine the shop windows of the shoe stores. Focus. it is not hard. Imagine the mannequins in the shop windows, their blank faces. Good, we’re getting somewhere. Now imagine you start walking, and that you are with someone. You discuss a very profound problem. You wish you could speak French, and that this, what you…

Agnes Pé – Mitt Paté Number 25

This is episode 25 of Agnes’ series of mixes wherein music hallucinates its own existence and dreams of its future. It is a joyous new show, this celebrative moment. All the windows are open. Sunlight streams in. The last residues of last night’s tear gas tickle the trees and the birds: coughing birds, crying birds, birds that laugh through their tears. The King awakes and looks at his city: splendid city, golden flags and open windows everywhere. His crown still doesn’t fit. Agnes dances around in her room, dances around…

Mitt Paté by Agnès Pe – Sales!

– explosions in the suburb – aircycling with ET – a ventriloquist suffers from hyperventilation – dinosaur dance in a nike commercial – the lovely rubber alien who lives in the bubblegum machine – gps for cocks – and then, on the way home, lost in thoughts, the streets lose their way, walk, think, dream talk, the night goes the other way, no time to say goodbye, the entrance to the flat, the entry hall is a desolate place, the headphones are the only safe place, sleepwalk up the stairs…

Excavation Series 7 – You/In/Be/Arc

Kev C. has sent us two tapes in the post. Both tapes got played and commented on our Tape Review Show. To be honest, the second tape didn’t get much airplay as such. It was used to add sounds in a spontaneous session with Jeff Surak and Adrian Shephard. (…) Back home, I played the tape in my kitchen. I liked it. It was the only tape I played for a couple of days. Kev had taken sound works from various places around the web, and had created a mixtape….

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…

The Wirebender presents in the mix another On U sound special

Once in every while Simon Wade, our man in London, sets together a show with the sounds and spirit from Adrian Sherwood’s On U Sound label. Here’s another mix. In Simon’s words: “In collaboration with Hebden sound the show features previews of Adrian Sherwood’s label with upcoming releases and a resurrection of some archive scientific dancehall classics.” “ I began listening to On u sound through mix tapes from friends at college around 1983 onwards. So it’s great to be given the opportunity to once again share some of them…

Rinus in the Mulinen Studio #1

A show produced at an old wooden table in the heart of the Porticello Castle on the shores of the Liparian Sea. I (=Rinus van Alebeek) used exclusively tape players. The show opens with a long run of the tape EP-1 by EclectikTronik (Ben Roberts.) An other tape played in the process is by The Shitty Listener (Jason Honea). For the rest of the one hour show I mix own recordings (some done on a winter’s day at Tempelhof, an other one in the highest sphere up on Teufelsberg) (others…

Anne F Jacques – Sounds for Post Peak Oil, episode 8

The new episode of Anne F Jacques ongoing post peak oil series brings us all the surprises and fascinations of tapes with unknown content, the excitement of finding and/or receiving sounds, and, in fact, a glimpse into the everyday life of a young woman living in Montréal at the beginning of the 21st century. I can’t wait to listen to it. In her own words: “A microcassette bootleg of a small range radio transmission by Emilie Mouchous around the Jeanne d’Arc electrical transformation plant in Hochelaga-Maisonneuve, Montréal; received by the…
