Interview with German improviser Peter Brötzmann. Shot before a gig at Kongsberg Jazz Festival.
It might not be a well known fact, but there is a substantial amount of contemporary composed music at subradar. This weekend we try and put the spotlight on some of the labels and composers of the genre. We are especially happy to be working with the Austrian Kairos label, and great Norwegian labels Simax, Aurora and +3b to name a few.
In connection with the digital reissue of the “Complete Spaghetti Edition recordings” at Subradar, I called Ivar Grydeland, one of the founding members of the No Spaghetti Edition ensemble and co originator of the Sofa label.
I wanted to hear a little bit about their motivation for starting the ensemble and what their intentions where. With Ivar on the phone running some errands around Oslo it became a short but informative conversation.
“Tonny Kluften and Ingar Zach started No Spaghetti Edition, and after a short while I joined in organizing with them. The ensemble came from... read more

Hello and welcome back after a summer break! The people at subradar needed a bit of vacation, but are now back at full speed. During the summer there has been some new features added to the site. One is a new filter functions that allows you to search by the best selling, recently added and off course label and artist as before. Another thing that has been added is a general facelift for the layout and some header tags that hopefully will make it easier to navigate on the website. Welcome back and stay tuned for more new music thats on its way.
Hello all, its been a while since our last posting in this column. Just want to inform everyone that things are going great and that more new people are finding their way to subradar and getting their hands on fresh-new music. The subradar staff will be taking some well earned time off during the summer months so if people find the pace of new albums and posts in social media a bit slower, this will be the reason. We plan on being back on full tilt and with a new updated website from the middle of august.

Due to copyright issues you have to use the link from ABC, the clip is at about the 8 minute mark.

Unlike existing merges of audio and visual such as the music-video or the rarely seen concept album, which were transferred to a screen ("the Wall" by Pink Floyd, "stop making sense" by Talking heads), Lossless, JAP's new Falbum, complements the music of JAP's debut album Lossless in Los Angeles (2013 on subRON records).... read more
