NTS Kit Recs w Paradigm Discs

NTS Radio w/ Paradigm Discs

This week at NTS I was joined by Clive Graham of London avant-garde stalwarts Paradigm Discs. Specialising in reissues and archival music, Paradigm made a name for themselves in the ’90s after rescuing the likes of Daphne Oram and Pauline Oliveros from obscurity. Clive brought with him a trove of music create by predominantly visual artists, ranging from the situationalist audio pranks of the fluxists, to Dutch abstract impressionist recordings, and ethnographic interview cut-ups from the streets of Londonderry and Brixton. The cherry on the cake came when Clive unleashed an 18 minute glitch opus by Kymatik – computer music that is some 20 years old, but sounds like it could’ve been made yesterday. I also got a chance to play new finds by Robert Stillman, Bog Bodies and Nochexxx.
