Junie Crawford – Transmission 3 ($ 1 Million)

The third show by our man in Montreal, Junie Crawford. Here’s an other attempt to break through the borders of music. After a fierce discussion with guitar and drums, Junie leaves the studio and enters the periphery of awareness. Did he enter the zone between life and death where all sounds lay down to die? In his own words Materials: marantz pmd222, logic pro x, a guitar i bought at 17, a radio i lost on the last tour, 2 years of Exhaustion, metro outremont at Nighttime, many nights into…

Junie Crawford – Garden 95 “Transmission 2”

This is the second installment by our new program maker Junie Crawford, currently based in Montreal. Transmission 2 is an attempt to break through the borders of song structures. It is a gentle and consistent composition, that integrates voices of radio and a fun report from a drive-in restaurant. At the same time intimate and extravagant, Junie’s series of Garden95 holds the promise to lead the listener into a hitherto unknown area, that some of us call The Future. Notes as communicated by Junie Crawford Materials: Zoom H4n, Marantz PMD222,…

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…

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…

Lord Litter’s Radio On Show – The Generations Unlimited Story, Epilogue

The introductory story to the first part of LL’s trilogy on Generations Unlimited can be read here. The introduction to the second part is found here, and here’s part 3. In th epilogue LL makes use of radio interviews to compile a portrait of Conrad Schnitzler, his contribution to the manufacture of German kraut, the genesis of Generations Unlimited and his life in West Berlin, a city that doesn’t exist nomore. All this moulded in a piece of radio art that glows and mesemerises like a wood fire. Word to Lord Litter:…

Don Campau presents Big City Orchestra

Don Campau himself tells us this about Big City Orchestra “I don’t exactly recall how I came into contact with das but it was inevitable. His enormous output and collaborations were well documented in the mags of the time and his local radio shows here in the SF Bay Area became legend quickly. I believe the first time I met him personally was at a radio station in Santa Cruz where he and GX Jupitter-Larsen were destroying vinyl and broadcasting the sounds. Later, in 1990, Eric Muhs and I performed…

Rinus Van Alebeek presents Radio di Vetro -Trilogy-

  Radio di Vetro is a three part radio program, that was first broadcasted live from Rome. It was an unofficial official part of the Teatri di Vetro festival. The three parts are called Masquerade A Short History of Theatre Cut Heads Cut Money   While in Masquerade the content is made up of tape noises put together in an abstract collagist way, the second and third part are informative and give insight in power relations and historic characters (fictional or not). The third, conclusive part contains a manifesto of…

RETROGRADE by Alan Dunn and Manchester School of Art

Alan Dunn started his career here on Radio On with his plunderphonic joyrides of britpop, radiovoices and historical events. It had a taste of nostalgia, bliss and the ordinary, maybe the essence of British pain. A new development in his contributions were the works he did with others, as an educator and an aritst. Retrogade is a fine collage with a slight hint of 20th century science-fiction, and, surprisingly enough, it is also an artistic evolution of the close-to-life documentaries, shot with handheld camera that were introduced in the 1970s….
