July 24th, 2014 – This week on Radio One:

6:00pm - Video Tape

Videotape has been creating what several critics have called “pop-gaze.” Their sound magnetizes harmony with noise to create a driving, slightly melancholic pop that In Your Speakers has described as having “moments of beauty, darkness, ingenuity, and a mysterious distance to engage, draw out, and ultimately mesmerize the listener.”

 

 

 

6:30pm - Kinetic Shapes


Kinetic Shapes creates a space in which members of Chicago’s music community interview each other live on the radio and illuminate the experiences that make the local scene so rich.

Violinist/pianist/vocalist Billie Howard is a member of The Paver, Wrekmeister Harmonies, Girl Group Chicago and NbN Trio. She also runs By Measure, a blog that documents the work spaces of Chicago-based musicians.

Jeff Milam is MT Coast, is an experimental sound artist who uses computers to explore the limits of organic and acoustic sounds by processing field recordings, acoustic instruments and by mimicking organic sounds with software. Milam is also a member of Mines.
