radio-on-fm

 

Programme I: ‘Playing with Voyeurism’ is an interview taped with Rinus in Madrid, discussing early experiences with found tapes and equipment.

Programme II: ‘The Ben Roberts show’ is a sort of home-made radio show where I give an overview of my performance work during the decade 2005-2015, playing excerpts from the releases.

Programme III: To be announced, this one will probably feature Rinus’ ‘remixing’ of some of the above.

‘Spanish Study 2005-2015´. Piece made for Arcotangente 2015 Bajar/Download http://lagaleriadearcotangente.tumblr.com/post/111948882838/ben-roberts-eclectiktronik-spanish-study

 

This album was assembled from a live improvisation with Gyohei Zaitsu (Butoh dance) in Barcelona, 2013. Constructed from reel to reel and cassette loops and modified vinyl. It continues the theme of disintegrating socio-economic relations, partially explored here with taped narrative cutups, obscure historical/literary insights into Barcelona’s working class. Yet it could just as well be a soundtrack for today, an artistic response to the collapse of a society fed on delusions of global consumer democracy, and rapidly losing belief in its own future.
