This evening at 19.00 Berlin time we will go live on air. For the first half hour we ( Adrian Shephard and Rinus Van Alebeek) will be joined by Michal Libera.

Dai Coelacanth – Missing Pagan Satellite Found in Dump

I hope Dai Coelacanth is here to stay with us. He started with accidental travel reports from holidays in Greece and Wales. The sound was raw, brutal, and somewhere hidden in the mesmerising collection of sounds, there was a sense of strangeness combined with the ordinary, that is so typical of foreign places. DC now continues to send in reports from his homeland. Is he a voice artist? I hope not. Does he scare little children? By no means. Does he use material that other people throw away? What a…

Brainhall art production presents Microtopies 2017, 59 miniatures de música i geografia

Andreas Glauser has looked around and found something to bring home. From Zürich to Barcelona, crying out to the rest of the world and back again to Zürich, on his virtual trip he harvested miniatures in sound. Pop tunes, film music, avant-garde discussions, anarchist coves, prophecies, desperado’s and poets, you will hear them all. Andreas’ words: Gràcia Territori Sonor is a non profit-making association, responsible for the organization of several activities about the experimental music based in Barcelona, among them, the international meeting LEM. We present the Microtopies 2017 released…

Brainhall Art Productions presents Alan Courtis

Andreas Glauser has been producing shows for Radio On since some years now. His Brainhall Art Productions have introduced us to a wide variety of artists via interviews, field recording projects, historic concert recordings, introductions to audio-zines, conceptual CDs. Listening to his shows is like entering a space where sounds and words buzz around your head like flies. In this show we hear Alan Courtis (wikiCourtis). He talks about his art, and plays examples of his latest releases for invisible city records and coherent states. Funny enough the names of…

Sounds for the post peak oil #13 by Anne-F Jacques

A long break, but here is the new episode by Anne-F, also this with her trademark sounds of rotating motors, but there is so much more. The collage gives a good artist’s impression of her visit to and participation in the Tsonami Festival. In her own words “All sounds from this episode have been recorded with various degrees of (in)fidelity in Valparaiso, Chile, during Tsonami Festival last december: two excerpts from sound installations, “dudas sobre la gravedad” by anne-f jacques (found objects, motors, various states or precariousness) and “revolt” by…

Live Coverage of Fraction Bruit #17 in Loophole, Berlin

On Saturday 27th of May Adrian Shephard, one of the founding fathers of Radio On, will put on his camouflage clothes and swallow a blue pill. He will be teleported to his past. He will carry a small broadcasting device with him, because he needs to transmit sounds from an evening full of noises. Nobody will be able to recognise him, since he will be disguised as a ghost from the future. If there is any need for you as a listener to find out if their is still life…

Brainhall Art Production presents 12 &12 by Jeroen Visser – 24 Hour Field recordings from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

  Word to Jeroen Visser The first time I visited Addis Ababa in 2006, I noticed that this big city really sounded very different from any other metropole I had been to so far. Be it for the absence of trains or trams, or the presence of mosques and churches with loudspeakers, it gave me the inspiration to move to a next step using only “real” sound to display a movement in everyday life. These moments could describe a specific place, an acoustically interesting moment, or an action. My experimentation…

Julie Rousse talks about her experiences in Afghanistan, India, Chili

Shortly before the Berlin Christmas Disaster devastated the western world, phonographer and sound artist Julie Rousse came to visit us in the Oranien Studio in Kreuzberg. It was not only the end of the year 2013; a year that had brought many travels to our guest. She had been in Chili, Aghanistan and in India. Hear her talk about these visits and listen to stories you hardly read in newspapers and such. Sounds recorded during her travels are played back as well. You want to submit your works or tapes/CDs/Vinyls…
