All Chemix Radio ctd (3/3)


Radio Art


Here are a few printed information regarding the All Chemix Radio series, conveniently collated in a 5 pages PDF document. The first 2 pages are from an official xeroxed handbill from The Radio Art Foundation (Willem De Ridder himself). Apart from the beautiful title photo featured above, the flip side has a list of some radio plays with plot summary for each 11 episodes – that’s only a portion of the complete series, but still a valuable document.

The next 3 pages are scanned from Robin James ‘Cassette Mythos’ book, Autonomedia, 1992. The book is a survey of independent/experimental cassette culture and includes 3 pages (pp 95-97) devoted to All Chemix Radio Series by The Institute For Invisible Languages (De Ridder again), along 4 pictures of their releases, be it fanzines or tapes.

The serious completist will want to download the All Chemix Radio Documents PDF file.

The black and white portrait above is Willem De Ridder in 1965, the year he launched ‘Aloha’ magazine. See my previous post for more info on this modern Orson Welles who certainly deserves to be better known. Check this page for a comprehensive list of radioplays in the All Chemix Radio series.

    I would have to say your blog is one of the finest in the world. I used to have access to a lot of this stuff when Kurara Audio Arts was still open in Tokyo.

    After it closed, the diversity of the Tokyo music scene became anemic.

    Very flattering comment, indeed. Thanks, Maldoror. I’d never heard before of this Kurara Audio Arts shop. If they really had this kind of rare music, it’s certainly a great loss.

    Oh and . . . something bothers me: do you know why I can’t find any japanese mp3 blog? Do you have such thing in Japan as a sharity blog or what?

    I don’t know of any Japanese MP3 blogs. People do a lot of P2P stuff, but it’s mostly listed on private blogs. I really doubt there’s much of anything good, the Japanese music scene is a bit stagnant at the moment.
