Yuka Honda, Pink Freud



The keyboardist from Cibo Matto mixes, mashes, and sublimely mangles whatever was on her mind or in her collection from some sessions in 2005. She gives a "cooking" lesson midway explaining and exposing her method, brings in Sean Lennon for some tracks, and mixes on the fly mostly in her apartment. A brilliant hour from a master in full flower.

Experimental Composers

RADIO SERIES

The object of this series is to invite emerging and established innovators to share their work. These programs are usually a combination of an interview with a far-reaching perspective on the artist's career, some recordings illustrating this history, and something new. Open territory. The unfortunate and unintended messages that come attached to a title like Experimental Composers are many. Still it is one of the few labels to come out of the world of music that has not been co-opted by promoters, corporations, journalists, or lawyers. This one just seems to have anti-market goo on it. Hooray. It's also just bad English (as if to imply that these poor souls are themselves, in their flesh and blood, some kind of experiment and, perhaps, even expendable). And then there is the spectre of defying the wisdom of the great Edgar Varèse who said something like, "I do not write experimental music. My experimenting is done before I make the music. Afterwards it is the listener who must experiment."
