Ale w/guests Susan Silton & Vicki Ray- Elevation Through Sound: Quartet For the End of Time
In June, 2017 the Los Angeles based interdisciplinary artist, Susan Silton, presented a staging of French composer Olivier Messiaen’s iconic work, Quartet for the End of Time in an empty warehouse in downtown Los Angeles. The work, commissioned by arts organization LAND (Los Angeles Nomadic Division), brought together an all-female cohort of four musicians (Erika Duke-Kirkpatrick, Michiko Ogawa, Vicki Ray, Shalini Vijayan) and four dancers (Deborah Cohen, Norianna Galindo-Ramirez, Kianna Peppers, Flora Wiegmann), along with actor Cristina Frias.
In 1939, at the onset of WWII, Messiaen was drafted into the French Army, and was eventually captured and imprisoned as a POW in Stalag VIII A, at Görlitz, Germany. It was here, on January 15, 1941, in the camp’s theater barrack and amidst bitter cold, that Messiaen’s composition, Quartet for the End of Time (Quatour pour la fin du Temps), first premiered to an audience of prisoners and German prison guards.
This program will feature a conversation with Susan Silton and Vicki Ray followed by a recording of the live performance.

Greg Belson – Time Less
An infrequent broadcast hosted by DJ Greg Belson, focusing on the beatscapes of 90’s club culture. Tracks that were forward thinking in production techniques, ground breaking in textures and time signatures but yet often forgotten. With the 2000’s came the advent of more powerful computers, easier accessibility to software and an ease to create at home; beatmakers of the 90’s had to either adapt or fall by the wayside. We’ll be unearthing some of the cream of the crop, that still relied on outboard gear, physical mixing desks and insane wired up patch bays to get the job done. With it came a certain warmth, particularly when it was arguably the last bastion of dance music to promote, press and present their music solely onto vinyl….it’s within these grooves that we’d like to celebrate with you a time in beat making. Join us as we spin the original format of what truly was a ‘Time-Less’ age.
4:00pm – 6:00pm
Boss Harmony – Punky Reggae Party
Punky Reggae Party broadcasts every 2nd & 4th Wednesday of the month and features musical selections from the punk & post-punk period between 1977 – 1982 (although other era’s, sub-genres & pre-punk influences are often represented), as well as Jamaican music from the ska, rock steady & roots reggae era’s, respectively. Many of the British post-punk bands were influenced by reggae music & it’s recording techniques, and that experimental spark is the nucleus of the show.
