A Music, Please! exploration of trans history.
Todays show is a part of a series of broadcast experiments exploring methods of audio collage, political investigation and the dramatisation of queer history.
This is an audio presentation of fragments of trans history, an audio-dynamic and non-narrative performance of music and archival materials counter-pointed and expanded with personal musical selections The point of these thematic episodes is not to present a unified history or cultural-political statement, but simply to present ideas and material in a montage or collage performed in a DJ mix style.
The idea for this particular show came to me while reading a time line of transexual history that seemed to be missing some of the transexual pioneers and figures that took part in the evolving visibility of Trans individuals that i have been exposed to.
Simply as a means to give those voices a visibility, and place them in a context which includes contemporary voices and theoretical positioning, i decided to make this longer themed edition of my weekly Music, Please! radio show.
