Show 152: Canticles of the First Floor by Pedro Coelho

This work crosses three layers:

1) Recording inside a taxi of excerpts of the “Bad Marriage Mantra”
(Erik Belgum) broadcast in Antena 2, with driver’s and passengers’

2) Fragments of the “Song of Solomon” (King James version) read by
Rich, Audrey and Claire; synthesized voices by AT&T.

3) Recordings selection of my first-floor neighbours, who emit in a
non-stop basis, in closed circuit, the most varied insults and agressions
which translation would become injurious.

There is also a dog and its transfiguration.

Show 151: minimal is beautiful by Patrick Thinsy

minimal is beautiful shorter piece. By sound artist Patrick Thinsy,Minimal tools, minimal effects, minimal production, minimal sound.

By using a mix of electronic sounds, field recordings and sounds from previous radioshows with the martiensgohome collective.
I tried to break away from my own (mis)-conception of radiophonic creation. It’s more written and edited than what you would expect from an improvising musician, but I believe the balance to be right.
