Radio Concrete is a monthly experimental radio show, broadcasted at Resonance Extra (UK), Halas AM (ISR) and Wave Farm/WGXC (NY).

It's focus is on sounds which people are exposed to on a daily basis in a spontaneous and unplanned manner; from the immediate surroundings, the street and the radio.

Fresh raw materials including field recordings of our everyday routine, samples from tv & radio, news editions and advertisements are all gathered on a regular basis and then mixed together with live sources (FM and AM stations and other live online streaming sources) and objects (such as amplified/hacked toys).

    Radio Concrete 52 - Izenberg & Sesper

    This episode is composed by Izenberg out of flexi-discs, synthesizers and live radio sampling. Using a few flexi discs including ones found in old National Geographic and Psychology magazines I’ve crafted a few short pieces from found sounds.

    Last piece includes Alex Cruz Sesper on tapes and synthesizer.

    Radio Concrete #51 - Karmen Ponikvar

    Radio Concrete #51 - Karmen Ponikvar

    Special episode of Radio Concrete composer by Karmen Ponikvar.

    Symphony of clicks and bleeps echoing from the voltage control studio, modulated field recordings, disembodied voices, re-mixed radio samples and cassette sounds. Through decontextualization and reconstruction, I aim to translate the environment and its natural state of disorder. Tape manipulation, tape loops and sampling techniques are used. Juxtaposing raw, unaltered material and its modulated counterparts serves to create a dynamic interplay, inviting listeners to traverse the boundaries between real and imaginary.

    Samples from: Female voice and viola, The Swamp in June, Jingles & Génériques, Radio Play Excerpt by Ulrike Haage on Eva Hesse, 180º, Jaap Vink and Recording of Shortwave Numbers Stations.

    Assaf is an interdisciplinary composer, pianist, improviser, singer/songwriter and educator based in Tel Aviv, Israel.

Premieres of his work have been performed by ensembles such as Musica Nova(Israel), Israel Contemporary Players, The Jerusalem Symphony, Jack Quartet(NYC), WasteLAnd(LA), The Sound ensemble(Seattle), Ninth Planet(SF) and others.

    Radio Concrete #48 - Eyal Cohen

    Eyal Cohen is a multidisciplinary artist based in Jerusalem:

    "Fuelled by a curiosity to explore the interplay between our world and the sounds it generates, I've crafted sonic 'etudes' that blend various artistic practices, incorporating edited field recordings, samples, and curated YouTube videos. The final segment of the chapter, spanning the last four minutes, features a musical contribution from Shaul Dahan's album."

    Special thanks to Neomi Ela Dery for lending her voice in both English and French.

    Radio Concrete #47 - Guy Dubious

    Guy is an artist and researcher, exploring the different materialities of magnetic recording as paths for sound's poetic and political agency.

    In this radio show Dubious makes use of a tape loop as a gatherer and generator of new encounters between the different sounds. Sources being used: LP record, recorded tapes, dead tapes clicks and hums amplifies with a coil pickup.
