Interview with German improviser Peter Brötzmann. Shot before a gig at Kongsberg Jazz Festival.

Subradar meets (#6): Evan Parker | August 2014

Recording and performing prolifically with many collaborators, Parker was a pivotal figure in the development of European free jazz and free improvisation, and has pioneered or substantially expanded an array of extended techniques. Critic Ron Wynn describes Parker as "among Europe's most innovative and intriguing saxophonists ... his solo sax work isn't for the squeamish"

Subradar meets (#5): Michael Duch | July 2014

Duch is a highly generous musician and improvisor. This is equally audible as he moves in the outskirts of reductionism, flirts with noise, engages in the domain of contemporary composition or happily endulges in the joys of free jazz.

Please enjoy this months meet, featuring: Michael Duch

Assi Weitz and Rob Gradisen, members of music trio JAP and creators of Lossless, experiment with the format of film by trying to produce logic through form.

"Falbum" - a fusion of film and music album - is a new audio-visual format which they developed.

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

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.

Happy holidays!

On 19th May 2003 Julian Cowley visited Arne Nordheim at Grotten, his home in central Oslo. Nordheim was generous with his time and warmly hospitable. They talked for several hours. The following transcript is extracted from that conversation.

JC: You have moved between different musical languages, both from one work to another and within an individual work, combining languages for your own expressive purpose.

AN: I’m excited by the possibility of expressing one thing in one language and another thing in another - and they turn out to be very much the same. Different in... read more
