Resonance Radio Orchestra’s The Golem at 9.45pm

December 27th, 2014 · No Comments

At 9.45pm we present The Golem, with Erik Fuller (narrator): a live soundtrack by the Resonance Radio Orchestra to the extraordinary 1915 silent horror film written and directed by Paul Wegener and Henrik Galeen (get the Eureka DVD). Performers include Lewis Gibson, Taigen Kawabe and Robin Warren. Then at 11.10 Attempted Breaksfast with Sam Collings (voice), joined by James Dunn, Alfredo Genovesi and Robin Warren – a riotous deconstruction of radio drama recorded live at the ICA all the way back in 2006. To bring the night to a close, we have two short fragments: at 23.45 the spoken word tour de force Millions Flee While California Burns (with Piers Gibbon), followed by the studio version of Buddy Holly’s Suitcase (with Glen Pederson, music by Kinnie The Explorer). Then that’s it from the Orchestra. From midnight – long-form classics from the 1998 RSL with Ian Breakwell, Ron Geesin, John Tilbury and Caroline Kraabel.

Overheard featuring Tam Dean Burn at 7pm continues our holiday retrospective of works by the Resonance Radio Orchestra. Part 1 is from Kill Your Timid Notion in February 2010 at DCA, Dundee with Tam joined by actress Pene Herman Smith; musicians Ed Baxter, Stephen Bloe, Ali Butcher, Rowan Corkill, Cat Lee Marr, Chris Lee Marr, Chris Weaver, Lin Zhang; and boxers Neil Danskin and Hamid Ahmed. Part 2 which follows at 7.45pm features Tam with Barry Burns, Luke Fowler, Mark Vernon and Chris Weaver and is an extract from a monumental 48 hour live work made for Install in Glasgow that same year and commissioned by Arika – to whom many thanks! Texts by Ed Baxter seem to have been lost: suffice to say, Part 1 features an encounter between Sterling Hayden and Claude Cahun at the Timex strike in Dundee, seen through Hellzapoppin’ – while Part 2 ends with a meditation on Justin Bieber’s haircut.

At 6.35pm the Resonance Radio Orchestra’s Sixth Sketch for Ascent And Descent from November 2014’s Gwaith Swn evening Relics. This work invokes Bobby Driscoll’s presence around The Factory scene, as evidenced in the 1965 underground movie “Dirt” by Piero Heliczer. The live realisation featured four guitars (Andrew Ford, Simon King, Peter Lanceley, Michael Umney), drums (Markus Sasse), bass (Ed Baxter), violin (Eloise MacDonald) and voice (Peter Lanceley). Special thanks to Paul Freeman (photograph, Gwaith Swn organisation) and Francisco Castilla (live mixdown).
Followed by… Bob Cheevers improvising a fragmentary text in a Secret Postscript to Ascent and Descent
