1- MEMORABILIA. COLLECTING SOUNDS WITH.... Andy Votel. Part I

Over the past twenty years, Andy Votel has travelled far and wide in a quest to buy as many records as he could. 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.

5- EN CRISIS #4. Reflections at a critical juncture: Daniela Ortiz, Marcelo Expósito and Miguel Noguera.

Overwhelmed by the institutionalised discourse of politics and economists, we invite artists, philosophers, researchers and poets to share their ideas about what is happening to us, to comment on the positive and negative implications of this structural crisis, and to imagine an uncertain future.

6- 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.

That's actually unique kind of radio, which puts out stuff by some of the avant masters no other place to be found on. I guess they need to justify their existence under Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona by advertising itself in a couple of places to have at least a dozen of listens. It's interesting to know who suggested WATMM for them initially, they seem strongly out of context here. My only assumption is Mark Fell or Joe Gilmore, who had an interesting program on generative music. Maybe it's just a result of standard search.
