Elliott Sharp's Radio Hyper-Yahoo

Music tracks and spoken word clips completely crafted by composer and multi-instrumentalist Elliott Sharp and performed by him on instruments ranging from guitars, basses, saxophones, zither and banjo to computer processors, analog synthesizers, drum machines, and hacked speak-n-spells comprise this wild show. Guests on selected tracks include DJ Gak Sato and drummer Sim Cain.

Sharp is working with vast array of genres from the brutal electro beats of Tracie Morris' Got It? Get It! to the grinding funk of Eric Bogosian's No Crime to the stark soundscape of Steve Buscemi's In The Film. Also included, is the rootsy steel guitar-driven rock of Lisa Lowell's In The Country, and the Hungarian Delta blues of Eszter Balint's Estimated Time Of Wait. Instrumental highlights include the psychedelic surf number, Escalation and the Miles-ian Ask Me. In addition, Maggie Estep, Jack Womack, Edwin Torres, Eric Mingus and Steve Piccolo are incorporated into the mix.
