Alexei Borisov – interview, live moments, new sound works

Whenever Alexei visits Berlin we have the honor to welcome him at the Radio On studio. Alexei lived in two countries, but didn’t have to travel to do so.

Alexei talks about revolutions, every day life, travelling in the Soviet Union, how Moscow changed over the years, his experiences as a musician and underground artist. New works are played. Testcard, Rinus Van…

Rinus Van Alebeek – Letter from Berlin

I moved back to Berlin in the month of February 2018. The audio reports that I started in Poland will continue, albeit in a different form. I will still use my Sony Walkman, walk and talk, observe, think aloud and allow snippets of every day life to land on the surface of the magnetic tape. November 2018 in Berlin. Emmanuel Rébus was on a short visit. I had asked a sound colleague if we (half-Diktat) could do a short set as an opening on an evening organised by him. Said colleague…

Radio On Guillotine

Celebrities and their IQ and the guillotine as a business model are among the other topics. Shephard also cites from ‘The Book of 1101 questions” and discusses the answers. There is also a strange…

Radio On Stockhausen

Here’s a show from our archive, when Radio On was a two men venture based in an ex-DDR lightbulb factory. This show was first transmitted into inner and outer space via a secret connection to a server in the heart of Amsterdam. Radio On was a pirate station.

Stockhausen, Sirius, Ufo’s, space, catholics, maharishi’s, the early days of the internet, masturbation…
