MITT PATÉ #15 – Hand in Hand with Time

At minute 9 I thought the show was coming to its end. At minute 14 I expected the last tunes any moment. Agnès had been a flaneur, walking the streets without hardly touching the pavement, and she had been an underwater swimmer watching with growing wonder and excitement how the sunlight tried to break through the surface. But after minute 14 I lost it. The show explodes and you don’t know where to look. Sizzles and sparkles, miniatures and possessed dolls, old postcards and fading ink, it comes, it goes…

Agnès Pe – Mitt Paté#13, After the Elections

Our Radio is not a slot machine. Donate and you will  always win. Agnès Pe’s 13th episode of Mitt Paté might as well be regarded as a 21st century sonic adaptation of Alice in Wonderland. There is one vital exception. Agnès Pe doesn’t follow the will of her writer, but kicks him in the balls first, before setting of for her American adventure. She ends up in Trump’s America, in Las Vegas. A human-size Godzilla is her guide. And while neon signs, slot machines and crazy people shout, twist and…

Anne F Jacques – Sounds for the Post Peak Oil, episode 10

Anne F. Jacques’ shows are all about care. You can deduct from the ‘playlist’ here below how every single sound gets its place in the wonderfull gallery she composes from it. There is more behind this. Anne has created one of the most exclusive and at the same time inclusive cassette labels I know of. Far away from the digital representation, the hip and the hype it exists only as that what it is: a tape with music on it, a wrap with stamped information and a few illustrations that…

HCut up Paper Economy, collage of voices and visions by Markus Stein

Markus Stein does these things. He uses recordings he made in which people talk about their experiences as a youngster in the newly formed Germany (when the BRD and the DDR were glued together). And he uses snippets of interviews in which we hear talk about radio art and the sense of it all. And somewhere in between all the voices you will hear strange cut-up collaging soundbits that form new pieces of contemporary music. Is there a hidden message? Is there a hidden message in all the words that…

William Nurdin presents Au Pays des Merveilles #20 – In Front Of…

  William Nurdin’s APDM is an itinerant radio program. William arrives at places, finds like-minded people and a like-minded space; they tune in and play. Everything is possible, everything is allowed. The original APDM sessions come to you as they are, live raw and upfront. For Radio On William Nurdin mixes the sessions; he cuts and edits and an APDM Radio On version is born.   In this episode you hear voices, objects, guitars, strange recordings, maybe kitchen noises or the TV. It all makes for an at times uncompromising…

Markus Stein – The German Voice of David Hasselhoff, Documentary about the German Unification

Markus Stein is also DJ Schlucht who for many years has hosted a weekly show called DIY Church. It was perhaps the most informative show, word and sound-wise about the manyfold dispersion of so-called underground music. I use the term ‘underground’ because you would never get to know about the music and the artists if you’d stick to official printed and state financed media. The German Voice of David  is a documentary about the German Unification. Markus talked with a couple of persons, (West-) Berliners and ex-DDR citizens. Each one of them, from memory,…

Playing with Voyeurism. Interview with Ben Roberts about his found sound archive, part one, by Rinus Van Alebeek

Recorded in his apartment in Madrid, directly on tape with the use of an 80s language class tape machine, in this interview with Ben Roberts we hear him talk about his early childhood when his parents gave him a cassette recorder, which triggered his fascination for the recorded evidence of somebody’s life. Jumble sales, diary tapes recorded in Japan, tape letters, the mysteries of unwanted recordings or the sounds in the background are all mentioned.  Ben Roberts also explains why the invention of the magnetic tape and its recorder were…

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…
