A Different Nature on 03/01/10
On this week's A Different Nature, we present Wire Music, the otherwise unheard symphony of powerlines, telephone lines and high tension lines, and the interactions with wind, sunlight or human hands.
We'll hear the works of Australian composer Alan Lamb and his multi-volume works dealing with recording miles and miles of telephone wires in the Outback. We'll hear the haunting sounds of an abandoned WWII radar installation, courtesy of English artist Richard Harrison's album Drone Hill 225 and we'll also hear the architectural/acoustic contructs of artists O & A.
We'll also hear some of Alvin Lucier's classic Music from a Long Thin Wire and other surprises.
This is hosted by Rich L.
That's on Monday, March 1st, from 8pm to 10pm [PST] on KBOO.
