  3. INTERRUPTIONS #15. Cumulative Tails Curated by Vicki Bennett (aka People Like Us) Link: http://rwm.macba.cat/en/curatorial/vicki-bennett-cumulative-tails-/capsula PDF: http://rwm.macba.cat/uploads/20131230/15Interruptions_eng.pdf Cumulative Tails is a pun upon the 'cumulative tale', where each part of a story relates to that which just preceded and followed it. This radio mix, curated by Vicki Bennett, has been created using that process – a succession of audio tracks picked in conceptual relation only to that which was previously played. You can find more mixes for this series here: http://rwm.macba.cat/en/interruptions-tag/
  4. MEMORABILIA. COLLECTING SOUNDS WITH... Andy Votel. Part I Produced by Matías Rossi Link: http://rwm.macba.cat/en/research/memorabilia-andy-votel/capsula PDF: http://rwm.macba.cat/uploads/20131212/Memorabilia_Andy_Votel_eng.pdf Andy Votel’s first musical passion was hip-hop, which intrigued as well as attracted him: he wanted to find out how that music was made. Thanks to his resourceful father, he discovered that it was based on loops, and that many of them were samples from other songs. That was the start of his obsession with discovering sources, and of his scouring of records that were probably not earmarked for him at the time (the late eighties) given his age, 14, and location, Manchester. While his friends got excited over Stone Roses and Happy Mondays, Andy explored jazz recordings released on labels such as CTI Records and soundtracks by composers like John Cameron and Krzysztof Komeda. Over the past twenty years, Andy Votel has travelled far and wide in a quest to buy as many records as he could. Some have ended up making it into his works or DJ sessions, and others have found their way into the catalogue of Finders Keepers, the cult label he co-founded with Dominic Thomas and Doug Shipton. His personal collection of vinyls, which he admits to measuring in cubic metres rather than numbers, makes him an acclaimed “archaeologist” of unusual records, even though he refers to himself as the world’s worst archivists and admits that he can spend hours looking for a particular vinyl at home, sometimes even buying a second or third copy because it’s quicker. Andy’s main obsession is pop, particularly of the twisted and psychedelic kind. He feels an affinity for artists who have been sidelined by mainstream culture, and is particularly drawn to records that are written on, personalised or dedicated, because they tell a story. An unusual case worthy of study, in spite of everything, he doesn’t consider himself a fetishist. His main motivation is to listen to music, and the only way to get the music he likes is generally to buy and collect it. You can find the complete MEMORABILIA.

  5. New podcast: PROBES #6, curated by Chris Cutler There's no end of things that have been laid on, tied to, screwed into or otherwise attached to alter the sound of conventional instruments. This sixth programme draws a map and explores some of the outer reaches of string and wind preparations. Link: http://rwm.macba.cat/en/curatorial/probes6_chris_cutler_/capsula Playlist: http://rwm.macba.cat/uploads/20130909/Probes6_eng.pdf Transcript: http://rwm.macba.cat/uploads/20130909/06probes_transcript_eng.pdf In the late nineteenth century two facts conspired to change the face of music: the collapse of common practice tonality (which overturned the certainties underpinning the world of art music), and the invention of a revolutionary new form of memory, sound recording (which redefined and greatly empowered the world of popular music). A tidal wave of probes and experiments into new musical resources and new organisational practices ploughed through both disciplines, bringing parts of each onto shared terrain before rolling on to underpin a new aesthetics able to follow sound and its manipulations beyond the narrow confines of 'music'. This series tries analytically to trace and explain these developments, and to show how, and why, both musical and post-musical genres take the forms they do. This sixth programme continues to explore probes into pitch through the preparation and modification of conventional instruments – looking at the many tapings, wrappings, clampings, clippings, attachments and impairments applied across the family of strings, before moving on to the less familiar territory of prepared winds. Some people get up to some pretty strange behaviour in the pursuit of unusual sounds. You can find the complete series here: http://rwm.macba.cat/en/probes_tag
  6. New feature: Conversation with Peter Muldavin on his sound collection This is an email conversation with 78-rpm and 45-rpm record collector Peter Muldavin, which took place between Winter 2012 and Summer 2013. Info: http://rwm.macba.cat/en/extra/conversation_peter_muldavin/capsula PDF: http://rwm.macba.cat/uploads/20130903/memorabilia_peter_muldavin_conversation_eng.pdf Transcript of the email conversation with 78-rpm and 45-rpm record collector Peter Muldavin, as part of the research process for the podcast series MEMORABILIA. Collecting sounds with... Peter Muldavin (also known as The Kiddie Rekord King) is acknowledged as the world's leading expert on vintage 78-rpm records. An avid collector since the early nineties, his 78-rpm and 45-rpm children's record collection is amongst the largest in the field and is mainly focused on nostalgic treasures. Muldavin is also the author of the book 'The Complete Guide to Vintage Children's Records: Identification & Value Guide' (Collector Books, 2007).
  7. New Podcast: MEMORABILIA. COLLECTING SOUNDS WITH... Brian Shimkovitz. Part II Islamic, Christian and traditional praise music, all have a place in the market stalls across Africa, and are widely represented in Brian Shimkovitz's tape collection. Link: http://rwm.macba.cat/en/research/memorabilia_brian_shimkovitz_collection/capsula Info: http://rwm.macba.cat/uploads/20130903/Memorabilia_brian_shimkovitz_partII_eng.pdf Mp3: http://rwm.macba.cat/uploads/memorabilia/07_memorabilia_brian_shimkovitz_music_selection.mp3 From different regions and in different ways, praise music in all its forms has a big impact on both the cultural economy and local music industries. In the context of many African countries, major religions from the West like Pentacostalism and Sufi Islam have been incorporated into more local, animist religious traditions. The music that results from these diffusions is often quite popular regionally and distinct-sounding to my ears. My collection has many threads that could thematically link some of the tapes. One of the aspects I have always loved exploring, and I think it is due much more attention, is the array of gospel, spiritual and religious music of all stripes from across the continent. From praise music from Islamic chants by Ethiopia's Oromo-speaking Sufi Muslims to syrupy Tanzanian gospel choir lilt to DIY Kenya spiritual reggae, to chart-topping mainstream Ghanaian gospel, to Ethiopian Orthodox praise music by an elderly monk playing a massive begena harp, this selection touches on many of the religious recordings that have a place in market stalls in African cities. Praise music can extend to the patronage important to musical practice in many locales. In northern Ghana, Dagomba traditional donno drummers (talking drum) sing praise to important people in the community and supporters, as with track six, by Alhassan Ibrahim. Traditional religion plays a big role in varying degrees, both in spirituality and music-laden ceremonies. Vodun praise singers from Benin, alongside the incredible drum ensembles accompanying their work, transform their adherents through the worlds they create in their music, as with track two by Alèkpéhanou. This selection is by no means exhaustive but I really learned a lot more about the breadth of practice, aesthetics and social agency associated with spiritual music in Africa. Brian Shimkovitz, Summer 2013 Enjoy!
  8. New podcast: PROBES #5.2. Auxiliaries Curated by Chris Cutler This music selection investigates further ways of piano preparations: will the torture never end? Link: http://rwm.macba.cat/en/curatorial/probes5-2_chris_cutler_/capsula Info: http://rwm.macba.cat/uploads/20130813/Probes5_2_eng.pdf Mp3: http://rwm.macba.cat/uploads/probes/probes5_2.mp3 The PROBES Auxiliaries collect materials related to each episode that try to give a broader – and more immediate – impression of the field. They are a scan, not a deep listening vehicle; an indication of what further investigation might uncover and, for that reason, most are edited snapshots of longer pieces. We have tried to light the corners as well as the central arena, and to not privilege so-called serious over so-called popular genres. Enjoy!
