Current listening

Thanks to a Dissensus tip I've been poking around the archives of WPS1, the P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center's internet station (you remember - I plugged its launch ages ago, but, as ever, didn't get round to listening until now). I can highly recommend Elliott Sharp's Sonorama programmes. Not all of them are available for listening, but among those that are, are gems such as this selection of early Xenakis electroacoustic works and the second disc of William Basinski's timely, accidental classic The Disintegration Loops. Both of which, oddly, have moments that remind me very strongly of Sonic Youth - 'Platoon II' (The Whitey Album) and 'Marilyn Moore' (EVOL) respectively.
