Garden 95 by Junie Crawford

Out of the blue we got a request by someone in Montréal, Junie Crawford his name. He described his work as homemade tape field recordings cut into loops and played back through various means (Marantz PMD222, kids toys, broken tape recorders from the 60s, sometimes just tape heads partially submerged in alcohol, etc etc), combined with interviews and found sound, to create immersive sonic environments that address issues of capital, race, human geography, placelessness, and power. We went to listen some of his shows on a Montréal based radio, and…

Sounds for the post-peak Oil, #11 by Anne-F Jacques

This new episode of Sounds for the post-peak Oil by our Montréal based friend Anne-F Jacques is another work of Radio Art that balances on notions of mail art, domestic silence and fragments from an Audio Diary.

Anne-F Jacques – sounds for the post-peak oil – episode 7

A new program from our Canadian friend Anne-F Jacques. And as always it offers a playful collage of sounds that can serve as a sound track to the micro-cosmos of every-one’s life. Although a tortoise man doesn’t appear on everybody’s doorstep.
