Songs of Lost Causes

program date: 
Mon, 08/30/2010

 With the help of the Old Mole's  radical musicologist Brad Duncan, we sample and discuss some music that keeps alive memories of lost battles that can nevertheless point the way to a better future.  Among the battles are the Spanish Civil War, the 1984 British miners' strike, the life and death of Malcolm X, and the ongoing struggle for the rights of political prisoners in Northern Ireland.  Here is a video of Ciaran Murphy's "Rebel Song" with images that give you an idea of what he's singing about.

Experimental China

EXPERIMENTAL CHINA:  We explore some of the recent experimental music to come out of China in the last decade. Until the late 1990s, most Chinese were isolated from the expermental music scene happening in the West, but with the internet, things changed at the dawn of the new century, when the avant garde scene exploded..  On this show we will hear a variety of experimental sounds, from harsh noise electronics to ambient soundscapes and other stuff, drawing mostly from a couple of CD compilations, the two-disc CHINA:. THE SONIC AVANT-GARDE, and the four-CD 1992-2008 AN ANTHOLOGY OF CHINESE EXPERIMENTAL MUSIC. Hosted by Rolf .
