Tune in to Esoterica’s show on WPRB 103.3FM tomorrow 1/2 at 2:15PM for a LIVE performance by local jazz artists Aidan and Devin!

Devin Mastrich and Aidan Donnelly have collaborated in a project entitled “Rocks with Faces” which is dedicated to their friend, Christopher Nanneman, who passed away early last year. Mastrich and Donnelly are exceptional jazz musicians who will highlight some tracks from their new e.p. in a live performance on Esoterica’s show at 2:15 pm Thursday, 1/2 @wprb. Sales of their e.p. go to The Christopher Fund. Visit www.the-christopher-fund.org for more information on the project.

Aidan Donnelly and Devin Mastrich are an up and coming jazz duo based out of Lambertville, New Jersey. Devin and Aidan started their musical pursuits at an early age and both began playing jazz together in the same high school program, and have continued to play and develop a musical dialogue over the past 6 years. Today, Aidan and Devin attend elite music schools and are setting their sights on creating a new and unique sound.

URSONATE PERFORMED BY ABBIE FROM MARS

OK, stay with us here. This is going to be a bit of a ride.

Here at WPRB, excellent eclectic radio happens every day. Once in a while, we send something particularly mind-melting flying out through the airwaves (and over the webstream) into your tiny human ears and decide to preserve it for generations to come. On our blog.

This week, our beloved DJ Abbie from Mars made some delicious radio art out of Kurt Schwitters’s 1932 sound poem Ursonate. Schwitters was a German Dadaist who dabbled with many different art forms, including collage, painting, sculpture, and sound. Here he is:

What a jolly dude. Here at New Jersey’s Only Radio Station, we are most concerned with SOUND art and so SOUND art we shall provide. Listen to Abbie from Mars pay respect to our dude Kurt. The performance starts at 1:38, but start from the beginning to hear Abbie introduce the piece and contemplate getting into breakcore. Her performance is regal at times, nail-bitingly suspenseful at others. Let the sound poetry wash through your neurons and transcend that ol’ body of yours into a whole new realm of existence.

Follow along below.

McDonald Brothers of Redd Kross on Esoterica’s show!

VALENTIINE’S DAY SPECIAL! This just in!

Rock Gods McDonald Brothers to call in to chat with Esoterica on The Sonic Bloom Wed., 2/14 at 2:05 p.m. EST!

Steven McDonald (Off!, Melvins, Redd Kross) and Jeff McDonald (Redd Kross, Ze Malibu Kids) started in a band called the Tourists in Hawthorne, CA in 1978 and they are still kicking out the jams, just returning from a European tour with the Melvins. Checking out Steve’s instagram this week reveals that, lucky for us, Redd Kross is working on another album. Tune in to 103.3 or stream at www.wprb.com on Wed., 2/14, at 2:05 p.m.(EST)/11:05 a.m. (PST) to hear Esoterica ask about this new Redd Kross project, other things Steve and Jeff are working on, as well as dig into the early days of SoCal punk.

What’s wrong with these Mozart Symphonies? (Tobias, MasterClassics)

Mozart’s symphonies numbered 30 through 34 are rarely played. The 29th made a lasting impression on 20th century musicians, and it is programmed frequently. The last three symphonies, 39, 40 and 41, get most of the programming time. The three big symphonies that precede these, the 35th, 36th, and 38th (there is no 37th) get a lot of attention also, and they have nicknames: The Haffner, the Linz, and the Prague. What happened between 29 and 35? Did Mozart’s symphonic composing fall into a trough?

In the next few weeks (Feb 13th through March, 2018), we will take a listen at these symphonies, beginning with the absolutely delightful 30th. We will see Mozart experimenting—just as he often did—and composing some music that deserves at least as much attention as the 29th.

MasterClassics with Tobias airs Tuesday mornings, 6 to 9am on WPRB.

8-27-2016 ater midnight – Bernhard Wöstheinrich – Live on Music With Space

Friday, 8/26/2016, after midnight (technically this is Saturday morning) Bernhard Wöstheinrich (aka the Redundant Rocker) will be performing on the WPRB program Music With Space.

“The alter ego The Redundant Rocker was created around 2002, and it finally established itself with the release of “Collider“. Since then, the moniker somehow co-existed with and influenced Bernhard’s other diverse projects; the realm of The Redundant Rocker and all the rest (which actually don’t have dedicated names) just mutually enhanced each other, there is no cusp between his projects, and you may find Redundant Rocker music under the names “Bernhard” and “Bernhard Wöstheinrich” as well, and the other way around.

The name The Redundant Rocker ironically alludes to a certain kind of replace-ability in modern art and music: with today’s technology, anyone could easily be replaced with a drum (or coffee) machine.

The person behind The Redundant Rocker, Bernhard Wöstheinrich, is a composer, painter, graphic designer, performer, small town bohemian, failed control freak, and, finally, even a record label owner in Germany. His projects and albums have been released on a variety of labels and span different fields of electronic and ambient music.

Bernhard started in about 1987 to intensely experiment with his own sounds and tunes after he found out that drawing and painting simply weren’t enough to adequately express himself. He went about to find something that might had a more “performing” approach. Inspired by the likes of Einstürzende Neubauten and other informal and experimental music, he finally began to work in a very personal way to compose and record some early tapes. The rest, as they say, is history.”

Seth Chrisman & Nathan McLaughlin Live on WPRB

This Friday, just after midnight (technically Saturday morning), tune into the WPRB program Music With Space for a live on air concert y Seth Chrisman and Nathan McLaughlin

Seth Chrisman is a musician based in the Hudson Valley, New York. Extended techniques, location recordings, and radio receptions are woven together to create undulating sonic environments. He has performed live at festivals such as Goldrush and Substrata and his recordings have found a home on labels including Full Spectrum Records and Constellation Tatsu.

Hudson, NY resident Nathan McLaughlin explores sound with a focus on acoustic instruments and reel to reel. He views the reel to reel as not just a source of effect and texture, but as its own instrument. Acoustic instruments serve as a companion to the reel to reel, with studies being carried out on the philosophical idea of going to the center. Nathan’s music has been released on a variety of labels such as Senufo Editions, Eilean Records and Scissor Tail Editions.

Iron Gump, Sean Hoots & Thomas Bendel – Live

Live, afte midnight on Friday (technically Saturday 13th) on Music With Space

Iron Gump, for the last seven years, has been traveling and living in Maui, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Gump-Hoots.jpgPhiladelphia. Spontaneously connecting musically with different artists around the world.Through his musical exploration he has gained a deeper understanding about allowing the instruments to play him and to listen/feel the other musicians playing as well.  His connection to sound has become his passion and his way of creating a space for people to explore. The universe sings!

Sean Hoots is a maker of music living in the land of West Philadelphia.  Perhaps best known for his roots/rock project Hoots & Hellmouth, Hoots has been writing, recording, and performing original music across a myriad of genres for the past three decades.  The last few years have found him delving deeper into the mysterious, crafting sprawling soundscapes from found-sounds, synths, guitars, and vocal manipulations.  This world of contemplative, meditative music, especially when combined with the talents of Iron Gump, offers a unique opportunity for performer and listener to share a soul-plumbing experience.

Thomas Bendel is a composer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist with a focus on drums and percussion based in Philadelphia. Improvisation, exploration of texture and subversion of instrumental roles are his aspiration, although big dumb drums are just fine, too.
You can catch him playing around Philadelphia with a number of artists including Birdie Busch, Arc Divers, Jesse Hale Moore. You can hear his recorded work on albums by Birdie Busch, Johnny Miles, Ross Bellenoit, Arc Divers, and many more.
