silence and music

The Vile Arts Radio Hour // 05.01.15

As The Vile Arts prepares a new format (there will be new hosts, new guests, and probably less Vile and more arts), DJ SpinOza takes over and tries to open the CD drawers while listening to a lecture by French maverick academic intellectual Foucault.

So, it's all about the music. It's an eclectic mix, with lots of Untitled Media tracks (the good ambient ones) and quite a few offerings from the slush pile out of The List Offices. The Vile Blog will be commenting on the tracks soon. Ish.

The Vile Arts Radio Hour // 06.10.14 // FK and MP

Tonight, on the Vile Arts Radio Hour, I run out of time. That explains why I start late and end early, and in between there are two interviews with the stars of Arches Live!

I had another entire interview to do...

However, have a listen to my chat with Max Powers and FK Alexander.

vile gets physical

The Vile Arts Radio Hour // 22.09.14 // Into and Out of The Body

After a quick intro - quite clearly to make time for the pre recorded interviews to be downloaded, Vile chats to Josh Payne... currently a Cryptic associate artists and making a piece that explores science as a means to getting out of the body (not out of your head)....

He then talks to Barry from Arika who is interested in how the body is a place for containing experience and ideas.

It is like Vile had a theme this time.

vile in his wendy hoose

The Vile Arts Radio Hour // 03.03.14

Vile is upstaged by his guests again... when Johnny McKnight (master of the pantomime) and Robert Softley Gale (Fringe champion) teamed up, it was bound to be a sex-comedy. Vile tries to stop the banter with his dull witted replies, but McK and RSG overwhelm him with charm and cheeky chat... even Kylie is played to start the show.

Another prerecorded interview follows: a chat with the duo behind Mirrorlands, a Cryptic Night coming to the CCA from the distant isle...
