We Are the Arm
Monday, November 5th, 2007, 9am - Noon
on Liz Berg's show

We Are the Arm brings synthesizers and strangeness to WFMU from upstate New York. With sounds that could be filed under art damage and post-punk, We Are the Arm's paranoid songs are fit to be the soundtrack for a malevolent alien invasion (they've opened up for Gary Wilson, after all). Roll the Super 8 and prepare to submit to your overlords.


Francis Baudevin
Sunday, November 4th, 2007, 9pm - Midnight
on Stochastic Hit Parade / A440 with Bethany Ryker

Listen in for the world-premiere of a specially-commissioned sound piece by Swiss abstract painter Francis Baudevin. Drawing from dozens of albums from his personal collection of his experimental music, this new work is an extreme accumulation of continuous sound that can be at times a densely packed barrage of information, and at others, an extended moment of almost-stillness. The beginning and the end of the work is marked by a "jingle" appropriated from an early vinyl copy of Terry Riley's "In C".

This broadcast is the first of three programs on WFMU as part of PERFORMA07, a festival of performance art across NYC. Commissioned by PERFORMA Radio, this series expands the field of performance into radio-space by inviting visual artists use radio as an artistic medium.

Guest DJ: Olivier Conan of Barbes
Saturday, November 3rd, 2007, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

Olivier Conan is a member of the bands Las Rubias Del Norte and Chicha Libre. And he's the co-instigator of Transpacific Sound Paradise's remote broadcasts from Barbes, the nightspot he co-owns in Brooklyn, and he also runs the Barbes record label. The label's latest release "The Roots of Chicha: Psychedelic Cumbias from Peru" is a revelatory collection of chicha - a heretofore obscure variation of Colombian cumbia played by Peruvian bands in the 70s. He will introduce us to the CD and some tracks that didn't make it. We'll also hear other Peruvian styles, some vintage Colombian cumbia, Cuban electric guitar music, and whatever else Olivier comes up with from his bountiful collection.

Ed Askew with Joshua Burkett
Tuesday, October 30th, 2007, 9am - Noon
on Hatch's show

After languishing in obscurity for decades, the music of idiosyncratic singer-songwriter Ed Askew is finally getting the attention it deserves. "Ask The Unicorn", his 1968 debut album for ESP-Disk, has often been compared to the work of labelmates Pearls Before Swine. Askew's equally wonderful second album, "Little Eyes", was recorded a few years later but remained unreleased until the De Stijl label pressed a limited edition LP in 2003. This year, they've finally made it available on CD. Although Askew once accompanied himself on a kind of Latin American soprano guitar called a tiple, carpal tunnel syndrome now prevents him from playing. For this live session, contemporary psychedelic folk artist Joshua Burkett will be playing the instrument for him.
