I’m finally able to mix the Oliveros and Radigue works for the Sonic Bed in New York from SB in London and it’s fabulous. Fascinating too how different they are. Pauline’s I of IV creates vertical shafts of light which burst , spiking upwards in different places from under Bed like some 3D topographical meter reader. Eliane’s Kailasha on the other hand is curvaceous and enveloping. Wrapping the body in continuously shifting figures of eight, plaiting and redirecting themselves horizontally. Do I wish I could get to ISSUE to hear them there.

Rob has been on the phone. There’s trouble with the Bed at the Biorhythm Show in Dublin. “It’s screaming at everyone Kaffe !” Phone diagnosis, however, reveals that it’s that infrequent MOTU crash that produces random patterns of squawks and white noise, so easily resolved. Not bad I guess as it’s been running everyday for 2 months now.
NOTE: Only one more month to go (show closes 3rd Oct), so if you haven’t yet managed a visit, there’s time and – believe it or not – it’s only ¬£30 for the train from Euston, all along the stunning northern Welsh coast and the ferry to Ireland. Stunning.
