My new side project: Radio Schwingungen


After some initial technical work I can finally launch my new blog: Radio Schwingungen. It's basically a virtual rescue mission to preserve the legacy of the once popular (and now defunct) German radio show "Schwingungen" which ran between 1984 and 95 on WDR (Westdeutscher Rundfunk).


It's not a place of musical innovation or rare, overlooked treasures. It's just a nostalgic attempt to publicize some of my cherished childhood memories and to give this incredible (yet low-brow) radio show a virtual memorial. Actually I pretty much hate this kitsch mutation of electronic music by now I still find it (somehow) necessary to give it a place to survive.


If you're - like me - more into the Henry/Stockhausen/Kayn/Oliveros/Pousseur/Mumma/Tudor/Gaburo etc. side of electronic than this blog will not be for you.


Although our bandwidth problems are not entirely solved yet (I'm uploading larger stuff at the internet cafe) our Electronic Music Time Machine is going to continue to publish lost treasures from the "right side" of electronic music. Stay tuned - there will be updates from time to time, whenever I have the chance to.


Yours as always
