20. reSEARCH – star songs

Installment #20 of the Research Series aired in December-2018 on CiTR.FM.101.9.

The twentieth of a planned forty-nine movies, each forty-nine minutes long, featuring no particular artist, theme or agenda beyond boldly going … who knows? Or as Werner Von Braun once put it, “Research is what I’m doing when I don’t know what I’m doing.” And we definitely have no idea where all this will take us.

012. The Final Countdown*

Installment #12. of The Final Countdown aired Saturday-June-16-2018 (c/o CiTR.FM.101.9).

Tracks available on this Youtube playlist (somewhat inaccurate).

The Final Countdown* is Randophonic’s longest and, if we’re doing it right, most relevant countdown yet – the end of result of a complex process that’s still evolving such is the strangely existential nature of the project: the 1297 Greatest Records of All Time right now right here, whatever that means. What it means is over a year of radio, if all goes to plan, and when has that ever happened?

Visions of Angles – a special Movie of the Week

Randophonic returns after a longer than intended midwinter break with an extra long Movie of the Week called Visions of Angles, which aired March-7th on CiTR.FM.101.9.

Here it is in two Mixcloud streams:

The podcast is available for download here.

It’s a roughly two hour distillation of a free form extended mix of mostly peaceful/cosmic possibilities that dates back to early last summer (2014). The days were long. The world was at peace. The entire universe was in tune.

Slowdive – in mind

Royksopp – Shores Of Easy

Tame Impala – Solitude Is Bliss (Time + Space Machine Remix)

Sendo Senshi – revisiting the past

Faithless – dust-childhood

Autechre – kalpol introl

Can – Obscura Primavera
