Seasonal Sounds #5: Winter
Seasonal Sounds is a seasonal programme which aims to do a sonic interpretation of the current (and coming) season - both in terms of pace, seasonal events and its characteristics. It combines a variety of musical genres, sonic textures and field recordings in a mix for the season.
Seasonal Sounds #5 marks the beginning of a new year of Seasonal Sounds. This time the season of winter has gotten colder, harsher and more disturbing since we visited it last year. The environment surrounding us cries for attention - howling as it insists on us to face it. I hope we collectively listen to what it has to say, and understand its good intentions for its call to action. Maybe if we listen closely enough, portals of alternative magical worlds will show themselves in the gloomy landscape. WINTER.

Tell, No Show #10: Chadwick Rantanen
In this first episode of the third season, you will have the pleasure of listening to American artist Chadwick Rantanen discuss his experience with the work of the American artist Mike Kelley, specifically focusing on Kelley's work "Craft Morphology Flow Chart" from 1991.
This episode takes its cue from the cuddly toys often encountered in Kelley's work and, through them, brings us from the flea markets of the Midwest to the counterculture haven of California in the '70s, '80s, and '90s, seeking out the rare and noble entanglement of the specific and the convenient.
Chadwick Rantanen is an artist living in Los Angeles. He primarily works in sculpture, and his work often involves a subtle appropriation of materials typically associated with the medical industry or domestic spaces, along with the subversion of icons and designs.
“Tell, No Show" is produced and edited by Jan Høgh Stricker from the Lake Radio and Andreas Führer from Institut Funder Bakke with the kind support of Statens Kunstfond and Bikuben Fonden.
On The Back Of That Dream
Our dreams are our antennas. With this radio show, we scroll through their signals. “On the back of that dream” is a search for connections. Where do we go when we dream? And are we alone?
Our dreams are our flipsides. In this radio show, we turn to our backs, we connect to the ground. The sky is the mirror. The night is the sheet. What do we see? What does it sound like? Is it far away?
Our dreams are our vowels. In this radio show, we connect their pearls on our strings; we feel their gaps, we make them meet in their words and let them shape their sentences. “On the back of that dream” is a dream coming true on the back.
We are so lucky to have met there.

chest 52 ,,,,, Animacy (shaping a shadow, holding a friend)
For saying something
For not saying nothing
And still not saying anything
For being hopelessly abstract
Shaping a shadow
Holding a friend.
For my forehead
A visualization, a memory & a couple of songs....
Lets lie down, back to ground
And seek nothing other than seeking
Let it come
Let it all

Hemma hos Jazz-Isak
The swedish musician Isak Hedtjärn does many things. Mainly he plays clarinett, saxophone and flute in a long range of different bands and projects - Grismask, Svenska Folkjazzkvartetten, Fire! Orchestra, Viagra Boys, Kali Malone, to name a few. But he's also a sort of jazz influencer.
His Instagram @jazzisak has over 100 000 followers. And his feed is just full of videos where the sound has been replaced with jazz.
In this portrait, Isak talks about his journey with the clarinett and goes deep into some of the music and memories that have shaped him as a person and a musician.
"Hemma hos Jazz-Isak" is made by swedish music journalist and radio producer Mattias Wallenius for The Lake Radio. It was mixed by Daniel Säfström.
The programme is in swedish.
