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…

Junie Crawford – Easy (fourth transmission)

The fourth transmission by Junie Crawford, our man in Montreal. Slowly his radio pieces evolve into fragments of a larger epic story. Those who want to hear, can sense the presence of a wide land with all its history and its future possibilities. A big city in the northern part of the Americas, and a Winter that’s closing in. Junie says: “it is a hard thing, a very hard thing: to be kind, to be easy, to love completely. materials :: iphone 5s, logic pro x, marantz pmd222, zoom h4n…

Agnès Pe – Mitt Paté 21 (Fuck You the People)

Where does she find all these songs and sounds? How does she manage it to put them in this order? Sensational, impressive, late night walk, mickey mouse t-shirt, kim jung un mask and private chicken too. Mysterious, picknick at hanging rock, chinese new year, a bar full of voices and everybody feels good Yes, we are angry as well, but that doesn’t change our mood. Red socks I am running out of words on how to describe the Mitt Paté’s Visit Madrid Go see Agnès Pe in action Always.  …

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…

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,…

Unplanned #3 by Adrian Shephard

Adrian Shephard’s innovative new show for Radio On risks to come to an end due to pressure by hundreds of unsatisfied listeners who classified his first shows as STUPID, full of lies and a total waste of time. It would be a real pity to lose this show. With very little means Shephard establishes a connection between a present and a past outside every known space-time zone. Not only do events from the past re-appear to us as in a cristall ball, Shephard also manages to grasp the essence of…

Post Peak Oil #9 – Anne F Jacques

A new programm by Anne F Jacques, a result of her visit to and tour of Japan. Hear an impressionist report of that journey: visions in sound. Anne’s words “Slurping soba at a stand-up noodle bar under the train station; getting ready to play with my newly met friend Takamitsu in his one-piece apartment, while eating mushroom-shaped cookies; various intersections and street corners; an excerpt from an improvisation with takahiro Kawaguchi and Makoto Oshiro at Ftarri in Tokyo; and rolling on disjointed tiles on my bicycle.” Please check the Schedule…

Adrian Shephard – The Unplanned Show #2

The Unplanned Show is in so far unplanned that there is no script and no premonition of what comment or reaction can be expected from Adrian, instigator, oracle, protagonist and narrator in one, though not at the same time. The method is quite simple. Take a box full of mini-discs with hardly any signs on it that could reveal the content. Play tracks randomly. Listen and talk about the images or memories they invoke. What you get is the magic of radio, where past and present mingle and the mini-disc…

Höllentag Spezial by Jeff Surak

Höllentag Spezial was made with one record player, one recorder and a lot of records. Jeff played locked grooves. If the needle is caught in a locked groove it plays only the piece of music or sound that can be captured in a full spin. The result is a series of repetitions, that can be experienced as mechanic or trance-inducing or simply musical. Especially for its repetitious form, the mechanical element prevails, and links the piece, thus, to the pre-war experiments when modern composers tried to reproduce the sounds of…
