Livecasting this afternoon from Loophole

Today I'll be livecasting from Loophole, a new venue at Boddinstrasse 60 (u-bahn station Rathaus Neukolln) Berlin from 3pm to 6pm. The session can be heard live on the web at Raudio, but you can also come along and visit the show. I'll be beaming pages from Click Opera onto the wall and discussing topics from the last few months' worth of entries, so it's a livecast if you're on the web, a mini-lecture if you're there. Hosts are Adrian Shephard and Rinus van Alebeek, and the show is called Radio On.

Rinus's original suggestion was that I play my favourite music and talk about Click Opera themes, but the radio I really love is spoken word radio with a few atmospheric sound effects, so I think what I'll mostly be doing is playing ambient sound and field recordings and talking over and through it, creating a kind of talk radio version of Click Opera. Do come along if you're in Berlin, or listen live on the web if you're not.

You should provide a few links to these phonography pieces when you're back home. At least I'd really appreciate it if you did! Here's a fookin pretentious 'thank you in advance'.

Am listening and appreciating greatly. I'm glad not to be the only one who chooses his shopping route depending on what music is being played in the shop.

I'd prefer silence (ie ambient sounds) to most of the music I hear in stores.

There's one otherwise lovely charity store i visit that only has one CD on an endless loop. The tracklist includes "We Are the World" and Dylan's "Forever Young". It drives me up the wall. The staff must be immune to background music

I'm listening from Australia (it's very late here now) and loving the discussions

I found some info about the Barbie modification:

"In 1993 a group in the United States calling itself the "Barbie Liberation Organization" modified Barbie dolls by giving them the voice box of a talking G.I. Joe doll, and secretly returned the dolls to the shelves of toy stores. Parents and children were surprised when they purchased Barbie dolls that uttered phrases such as "Eat lead, Cobra!" and "Vengeance is mine.""

Momus -

The expense is obviously prohibitive, as far as putting chips in brains and whatnot.

Coincidentally, i'm writing an article about new EU identification systems right now. (well, not writing because i'm too interested in the webcast) Here's the website of the company that produces subcutaneous chips for the EU: http://www.xmark.com/
Notice how friendly-looking they made their homepage. Anyway, it's not very expensive at all.

Also, I think that oddly enough, culture is becoming less truly tech savvy. As time goes on, what software (and therefore hardware) does is muddled more and more by layers of abstraction, making things more "user friendly." A hardware implant in the brain in perhaps the least "user friendly" advance I can think of.

The real problem with the chip-in-the-brain thing is that if you're electrocuted while wearing an electronic device it is more severe than if you weren't. One man's eardrums blew out because he had earphones in when he got struck by lightning. If this happened when you had an electronic device in your brain it would almost certainly have major side effects.

What would you do if you found out that Noel Gallagher was secretly a fan? (You find this out via a gushing love letter).

The train stations around here play continual classical music over the PA system to keep teenagers from lingering. It turns every random bashing into a scene from A Clockwork Orange.

Interesting show. Berlin might have the poverty of 1970s New York but it hasn't produced anything like the same scene. It’s been described to me as a place where everyone is an artist but few of them actually create much. Does the cultural ferment lack unity and indignity, is everyone too resigned, remote?

(London is the same. I fear the internet is a pacifier. No-one wants to 'shout it to the world' these days.)
