Beard Radio 6.10.08

Joe McPhee

Francisco Lopez

On this week's show we preview Kill Your Timid Notion, Dundee's pioneering festival devoted to exploring the borders between sound and vision. Brought to you by the good people behind Glasgow's Instal Festival and The Music Lover's Field Companion in Gateshead, KYTN brings together experimental music, performance, art and film, making for an experience that'll open your ears, eyes, and mind. While we can only represent the sonic side of the festival, we hope our selections will have you intrigued - expect to hear sounds electric and acoustic, digital and analogue, human and animal. We're not joking about the animals by the way.

All that plus the usual mix of miscued records, overuse of the word "awesome", and new tracks from some of our favourite artists.

I must apologise for my ridiculous banter. I'd just been to a postgrad meet and greet, where wine did a flow quite freely. So there's a very relaxed presentation style this week, as well as some impromput microphone stand spring improvisations. Well, they made some great resonant tones!
