  1. Soundproof Radio Yak: Chris Watson

    Radio Yaks: A Soundproof series in which eminent producers and sonic luminaries from around the world share audio they’re crazy about, and tell us why.

    In this Radio Yak, legendary field recordist Chris Watson, shares some favourites from his record collection that have shaped his musical and listening practise. From his early days as a founding member of Cabaret Voltaire, Chris has always been fascinated with the sounds outside of the studio and has spent his lifetime gathering, composing and introducing the world to the music in nature.

    Chris Watson was a founding member of the influential Sheffield based experimental music group Cabaret Voltaire during the 1970s and early 1980s. His sound recording career began in 1981 when he joined Tyne Tees Television. Since then he has developed a particular and passionate interest in recording the wildlife sounds of animals, habitats and atmospheres from around the world and his work includes programmes in the David Attenborough Life series including The Life of Birds. Watson was also the location sound recordist with David Attenborough on the BBC’s series Frozen Planet which won a BAFTA Award for ‘Best Factual Sound’ (2012).

  2. Jon Rose: the Thomas Edison of the vibrating string. - Late Night Live - ABC Radio National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

    Thursday 14 August 2014 10:20PM

    Composer, violinist, raconteur and history buff Jon Rose has just presented Ghan Tracks in Sydney. This project came out of his Great Fences of Australia work which involved his playing fences in Israel, the USA, Finland and of course the many and varied "vermin" fences in the Great South Land. He’s in to tell us how much of his work serves as a metaphor for colonial settlement.

  3. Robert Forster: Dancing About Architecture

    Robert Forster,musician, songwriter, music critic for The Monthly and co-founder of the iconic indie rock group, The Go Betweens, is in conversation with Sasha Frere-Jones, the pop critic with The New Yorker at the Melbourne Writers Festival.

    This is a prize eavesdrop: Frere-Jones loves Forster and The Go Betweens; Forster has a great openness and nerdiness and they both know a whole heap about music.

    This plain boy from Brisbane who didn’t even have a girlfriend when he was writing some of his best songs with Grant McLennan and wondering how he could compete with The Velvets – Lou Reed, John Cale, Nico, heroin and sado masochism – is an absolute treat in his deep brown suit and his long winding tale about meeting the woman of his dreams, actress Lee Remick.
