    Colliding Lines #21 - Origins Again

    Colliding Lines present live sessions, cross-genre collaborations and left-field recordings drawn from the London, UK and international experimental scenes; a long-form love letter to recorded audio as soundtrack, as sound art and as storyteller.

    This month we re-run and remix an episode from June 2020, ‘Origin Stories’. Featuring interviews with Alexander Carson, Gaze is Ghost, Nikki Marrone and Broads, the show is about things beginning at home, in the family or in birth. Post-pandemic, these artists are releasing new books and music, and touring for the first time in literally years. We’re happy to share again if you’re happy to join us. Featuring scenes of childbirth, dramatic windswept narration, and the memorable quote “you’re sitting in your pants, shovelling Häagen-Dazs in your face and crying at The Simpsons”. Theresa Elflein joins us presenting some fresh tracks, and the show is presented by Wesley Freeman-Smith and, in parts, by Martin Clarke.

    Colliding Lines airs on Resonance Extra on the third Thursday of every month, with listen back options for all of our shows on Mixcloud, Soundcloud, and wherever you get your podcasts.

    Colliding Lines present live sessions, cross-genre collaborations and left-field recordings drawn from the London, UK and international experimental scenes; a long-form love letter to recorded audio as soundtrack, as sound art and as storyteller.

    In honour of Helicotrema’s 10th recorded audio festival, coming up September 29th, today’s show revisits a playlist previously curated for broadcast by the festival’s organisers (the collective Blauer Hase). Inspired by the first decades of radio, Helicotrema is set up like a screenless film festival. Gathering in-person in venues which vary year-to-year, audiences are invited to immerse themselves in radio plays, narrative sound works, audio documentaries and poetry. Colliding Lines are delighted to contribute material to this year’s festival – more on this soon. This month we are also delighted to feature works from Stephan Barrett, Sylvia Hallett and Nichola Scrutton.

    Colliding Lines #19 - The Rest You Need / Meditation (part 2)

    Colliding Lines present live sessions, cross-genre collaborations and left-field recordings drawn from the London, UK and international experimental scenes; a long-form love letter to recorded audio as soundtrack, as sound art and as storyteller.

    Presented by Theresa Elflein, Colliding Lines takes you on a trip through the backwoods of experimental pop and back again. This month, our eclectic selection of tracks chart a course through the slow dark secrets of 80s-influenced pop, through South African jazz, and to unfinished songs written by the ghost of a woman – bruised like a peach fallen from a tree. The final half is an excursion into ambient echoes and melodic meditations, a slow-burning soundtrack from Leipzig producer Moses Batikva. Show contains artists Glu:, MAW, Michael Peter Olsen and Katie O’Neill among many others.

    This month marks the release of River . Pathway . Static, upcoming album by Stephan Barrett and Sylvia Hallett produced by Colliding Lines. The two musicians find themselves nestled within field recordings of the River Lea, Tottenham Marshes, and Downhills Park, drawing the listener between the cracks and into hidden corners; into the rich background worlds that surround us daily. The two musicians first met and collaborated as part of Littoral Transmissions, a broadcast with Stephan here on Resonance Extra. For Sylvia, whose musical approach can be best described as “violin moving outwards,” to bowed bicycle wheel and vinery, this piece follows Tree Time and Bolt and Latch. For Stephan this follows on from sound collage and invented language project Abrasion Tapes, from long distant collaboration Blitemotes.

    We round out with a replay of live work performed and composed as part of 2020’s live series Reanimation, which featured artists Ingrid Plum, Bell Lungs, Martin Clarke with Derek Yau, and Merlin Nova to name a few.
