Ed Tucker Reader Find

By Ed Tucker in Cool Websites on Wednesday 29 August 2012

Fip is brilliant. It’s a French radio station that plays a wide but cohesive cross-section of music, focussing largely on jazz, world, reggae, soul, folk, and the like, as well the obligatory weird French pop and only minimal chat, which also happens to be very easy on the ears. Thanks to the internet, now everyone […]

Kunstradio is a sound art radio station from Zurich in Switzerland, home of the Dada movement. I worked with this station in 1999, where I streamed a sound art piece, Frozen Teardrop in Space, as part of the Ars Electronica festival from Linz Austria. I collaborated with Colin Fallows at Ars Electronica and participated in the 24 hours live streaming web mix broadcast on Kunstradio. The radio station broadcasts sound works from all over the world 24 hours a day. You never have to listen to Bieber again!

Though I’m yet to hear them work in a Flock Of Seagulls track. Yes, the 80s were so cool. Under the banner of ‘Future Roots’, the Dublab DJs throw world music, electronic, dub and garage rock together and come out the other end with a 24-hour playlist which is both fun and distracting. Who needs to work when you could be doing a spirited dubstep instead in the sanctity of your own apartment? We checked in with Dublab DJ Alexandro Cohen to get the inside word on the station’s story: past, present and future.
