Show 425: Captain Klangedum on tour
by: Radio WORM
Recorded april 19th, Rotterdam at the Red Ear Festival
musicians; Peter Van Bergen, Robbert van Hulzen, Lukas Simonis
3 musicians were invited by the Red Ear Festival to tour 6 restaurants in the surrounding area of the festival (the so-called ‘Rotterdam Manhattan At The Maas’ district) with unexpecting audiences.
These are recording of 4 of their performances, sometimes lasting 2 minutes before they were told (very politely) to go away. there’s also lots of recordings of the musicians NOT playing.
Any unsuspected conclusions? Yes. Free Improv music goes down well with eaters of red meat (Gauchos!).

The Radia Network emerged from a series of meetings, clandestine events, late night club discussions and a lot of email exchanges between cultural radio producers across Europe. The topics vary and the reasons for forming a network are many, but Radia has become a concrete manifestation of the desire to use radio as an art form. The approaches differ, as do the local contexts; from commissioned radio art works to struggles for frequencies to copyright concerns, all the radios share the goal of an audio space where something different can happen. That different is also a form in the making – radio sounds different in each city, on each frequency. Taking radio as an art form, claiming that space for creative production in the mediascape and cracking apart the notion of radio is what Radia does.
