Experimental radio show from Rejections

Decoder hasn't left much of a footprint at FMA recently, while we've been working out the kinks at our website, but we're to get back into the swing of things by sharing this new work from Michael Hann, aka Rejections. The Jt Wrks are an hour long installment in Hann's experimental radio show, Transmit to Fade; Sonic Router described it aptly as "...an incredibly different exploration of musical tension," composed as it is of contextually varied and subsequently distorted field recordings. Hann describes it...

Transmit to Fade (T2F) is an extension of the nervous system which runs through and from the Teesside based Reject and Fade label, which is managed by producer, writer and film maker Rejections (aka Michael Hann) and will be broadcasted on the international digital radio station Basic FM.

The first episode from T2F is called The Jt Wrks, a soundscape created by Rejections out of field recordings and samples taken on a family holiday in Whitby in 2009. The piece unfolds in a dreamlike manner to explore the finite nature of memory, the tensions inherent in familial relationships, time and loss.

Acoustic Guitars are a cancer

THE METAPHONE, an instrument I made out of some metal table legs

Getting tired of seeing all the attention heaped on anyone who can strum a few chords.

Music is about creativity, and too many guitarists fall into tedious ruts, repeating those same old barchord cliches and dragging music down. It's funny how much of the guitarist's lexicon comes from Chuck Berry's piano player Johnnie Johnson- they are often unaware those riffs came from a piano first.

I once saw at a music festival a guy who had made a marimba-like instrument out of several lengths of 4X4's !!! He was laying down really interesting interplay with a Sax player and a Tabla player. I've quit several bands in my life because the guiatr player insisted that music "had to be done this way and no other" Often I would retort my pet project would be a Sax, Conga, Drums, Bass, and Keys - NO GUITARS.They have a difficult time subsuming themselves into the mix to make the group sound better as a whole, always turning up their amps. Other instruments in a group more easily grasp the concept of working together, because they are usually forced to co-operate behind a guitar ego.

If you disagree with me, just ask a guitarist who his favourite band is, they will usually answer RUSH or LED ZEPPELIN or other guitar-centric bands. Hardly ever a band with multiple or esoteric instruments, or jazz, or experimental, etc., etc.

Ogni settimana selezionati e messi in evidenza all’interno del flusso freeform della nostra programmazione.Some call it sound-art, new music, research sounds, acoustic experimentations or liminal sounds, we just call them Pepite, golden nuggets: tips on sound research, precious bits of our programming. Each week we select few Pepite and highlight them into our freefrom streaming.Gli ascolti di questa settimana arrivano da un luogo davvero particolare e raccolgono suoni che viaggiano sulla rete, voci senza corpo, senza spazio, tempo o lingua ben definita.Sono suoni che vivono di nuova vita in un progetto dell’artista argentina Sol Rezza, sono suoni e voci ricomposti in racconti radiofonici.“La Radio è un medium che prende la forma di quello che rappresenta: una voce, un suono dietro una tenda scura, un senso di solitudine nel mezzo della notte, uno sguardo senza occhi. Talvolta è qualche cosa al di fuori della nostra portata, eppure lì, vicino; un qualche cosa capace di andare oltre il linguaggio delle parole, un linguaggio di suono” Con queste Pepite porgiamo il nostro orecchio a SHORTS for radio un progetto dedicato a archive.org da Panz4 TroupéSHORTS for radio è programmato nello streaming notturno di Radio Papesse—This week listening tips come from a very peculiar place and collect sounds from the web, disembodied voices from another world without time, no space, no language.Sounds that get a new life into a project by artgentinian artist Sol Rezza, sounds and voices restructured into radiphonic pieces.”Radio is a medium that takes the form of what it represents, a voice, a sound behind a black curtain, a solitude in the middle of the night, a gaze without eyes. Something that is beyond our reach, but it’s there. Understand something beyond the language of words, a language that extends through the sounds.”With this golden nuggets we turn our ear to SHORTS for radio a project dedicated to archive.org by Panz4 TroupéSHORTS for radio is programmed in the night streaming of Radio Papesse
