Here are some of the cool things that will be featured on WXYC this week:
Broken Music, today from 2 to 3pm, will feature Eli Keszler, a multi-instrumental musician from New York. He plays things like sheet metal, engines, microprocessor-controller motors, and piano strings, often experimenting with percussion. His past in punk rock is only vaguely audible in his solo work. Much of his work is installation art, but his recorded works are equally ambitious. Collaborations with Ashley Paul, Tony Conrad, and Ambarchi are all notable.
Tune in from 5 to 6pm today to listen as the WXYC Reports team absconds with the sounds of other peoples voices and presents them as the substance of their own creation, exploring the theme of "appropriation" in one hour of story driven analysis and questioning, probing the topics of sex, gender, race, relationships, literature, and fan fiction.
From the host of Backyard BBQ, tonight 8-9pm:
Your handsome host has returned
Local music y'all
On this week’s Sports Rap, tonight from 9 to 10pm, we'll be talking about the top picks of the NBA Draft, Charlotte's pick in the NBA Draft, the women's World Cup, and the U.S. matchup against China in the cup.
And on Monday 9-10pm, the Inside Track will be the album With Miur from Japanese experimental artist Keigo Igarashi's solo project Fifto. With Miur is a collection of mostly glitchy, sputtering minimalist soundscapes that verge on catchy.
