New Radio Show Tonight : SF Soundtracks!

Science Fiction Soundscapes : Part 2.
Wednesday 30th October, 9 – 10pm (BST) on Resonance 104.4 FM in London, and live to hear online on : http://www.resonancefm.com
Hosted by James DC, with sound artist Martin A Smith.
Tonight we explore the wonderful and bizarre sonic landscapes of science fiction soundtracks. Starting with some of the cult-classic TV soundtracks of the late 1960’s, like The Prisoner and UFO, through to the 1970’s experimental electronica of  Edward Artemiev for Solaris (1972), and Gerry Goldsmith’s seminal soundtrack to Alien (1979), to the funky lounge-core of Ennio Morricone’s music for Danger: Diabolik (1968). Plus the amazing classical-synthesiser soundtrack by Wendy Carlos for A Clockwork Orange (1972), right up to the recent music by Daft Punk for Tron : Legacy, and much more. We will play tracks from each piece and then analyse and discuss the wider social and cultural context of these iconic soundscapes.

New Radio Show Podcast!

Pistolero Punk Rock and Anne Pigalle

Originally broadcast 5/9/12 on Resonance 104.4 FM

James DC is joined by Glen Matlock, ex-Sex Pistol’s musician and musician/artist Anne Pigalle to talk about the history and culture of Punk Rock. From the Pub/Glam Rock beginnings in the early 1970’s to the myriad sub-genre’s of Punk, right up to the modern day, we discuss the political, artistic and sociological implications of this most influential, counter-cultural movement. Has Punk lost it’s bite and been appropriated by the mainstream culture? Anne talks about her early Punk days in 1970’s Paris and London, and Glen recalls the creative cauldron which ignited the Sex Pistols, and thus Punk as we know it.
