I was lucky enough to help out at ResonanceFM’s wonderful Sound Art Exhibition at Raven Row entitled Gone With The Wind. The main feature of the exhibition were pioneering sound artists, Max Eastley, Takehisa Kosugi and Walter Marchetti. ResonanceFM installed themselves at Raven Row, where as well as focusing on these artists, they held a myriad of live performances and workshops. Over the next few weeks, we’ll play out various bits and bobs from this exhibition, this week starting with a piece called KME, a compilation of all three artists.
The Joint returns after a 5 month absence, doing their radio shows from the RDUnit, a converted horse truck. As the RDU studios are still out of bounds due to the Earthquake on Feb 22nd, NZ On Air come to the rescue and funded the mobile unit. Possibly the best investment NZ On Air has ever made.
On the Earthquake subject, friend and collegue Tim Baird (Pinacolada Records, Hot Wookie to Facebook friends) was kind enough to record an audio diary of events. Part One is recorded whilst biking around Christchurch’s Red Zone cordon on April 13th.
These shows will all play out on a daytime loop between the hours of 12-7pm, other shows to feature are daily slots from Democracy Now, a mixtape from James Pants and Chapter One of Cormac McCarthy’s Blood Meridian.
On the evening loop from 7pm-12pm we’ll have sounds from the North Western Motorway, Animal Collective, Deerhunter, Portishead, Can, Ultravox, Aphrodite’s Child, Herman’s Rocket, Stockhausen, Kanye West, Com Truise, Demdike Stare, Thai Dai and Nigeria Special Modern Highlife 1970-76.
