Produced by Matias RossiOver the past twenty years, Andy Votel has travelled far and wide in a quest to buy as many records as he could.

COLLECTING SOUNDS WITH.... Brian Shimkovitz. Part I.

COLLECTING SOUNDS WITH... Eric Isaacson. Part I. Produced by Rosanna ArbonIt may seem obvious looking back but Eric Isaacson had no idea that a childhood obsession with The Beatles and an armful of Daniel Johnston cassettes would be the foundation for his work as founder of Mississippi Records label and shop and the keeper of a uniquely free flowing record collection that is detached from time.Link: http://rwm.macba.cat/en/research/memorabilia-eric-isaacson/capsulaMore info: http://rwm.macba.cat/uploads/20140313/Memorabilia_Eric_Isaacson_eng.pdf 7- PROBES #3. Curated by Chris CutlerThis is where pitch becomes weightless and all that is solid melts into air: futurism, noise, electricity, ecstasy and uncertainty.

Cumulative Tails. Curated by Vicki BennettCumulative Tails is a pun upon the 'cumulative tale', where each part of a story relates to that which just preceded and followed it. This radio mix, curated by Vicki Bennett, has been created using that process – a succession of audio tracks picked in conceptual relation only to that which was previously played.Link: http://rwm.macba.cat/en/curatorial/vicki-bennett-cumulative-tails-/capsulaMore info: http://rwm.macba.cat/uploads/20131230/15Interruptions_eng.pdfEnjoy!
