Origin Peoples – Orphic Tracks
It is the dawn of a new day on the cusp of a new month. In this twilight, we consider what it is to be between places, between realities, even between human and non-human. Music is made by everything, and in the old myths it was the music-makers that could most easily travel between worlds, even beyond the bounds of death. In this twilight, we remember those myths and enter into musical reverie that transport us out of time and place.
Each month, LA-based label Origin People invites guest producers to help program 2 hours of ambient, downtempo, fourth-world melodies, jazz, psych, and folk from beyond the horizon and spanning generations. Selected with the myth of Orpheus in mind, these are sounds made to charm the wild and move even stone to dance. This month’s broadcast brings in guest Hotthobo, the mastermind behind much of LA’s modern boogie and funk scene and the owner of Hobocamp and Voltaire Records.
9:00am – 10:00am

Chris Kissel w/guests Morher + Kole Galbraith – Contact Wave
Hosted by Los Angeles-based DJ and journalist Chris Kissel, the bi-monthly dublab program Contact Wave enthusiastically celebrates the best experimental, avant-garde, psychedelic, and off-the-grid music crafted in L.A. and beyond.
This week’s episode features guest performances by Seattle artists Morher and Kole Galbraith, who are currently touring the U.S. together.
Morher is the musical project of Ambrosia Bardos, a multimedia artist based in Seattle and Chicago (fka wrtch). They create swells of sound and silence using vocalization and biometric data in tandem with analog sound manipulation. Their work is improvised with the intentionality of body plus electronics functioning as a channel. Morher’s work is informed by their diasporic Rroma and indigenous Quileute ancestry; in dialogue with Queer genealogies; in process with experiences of crisis and catharsis as survival, and as a consensual sex worker and survivor of pre-verbal trauma. Their artwork is a vessel for liminal spaces of communion.
Sound artist Kole Galbraith creates deep drones by exploring the flexibility and viability of electric bass guitar’s revolutionary aspects, approaching with manners both traditional and unconventional to achieve delicate and gutturally cathartic possibilities. Weaving maximalism and minimalism, Kole mimics sounds found in nature while also generating cosmic layers, resulting in emotionally expressive pieces. A Pacific Northwest Native, he discovered improvisational techniques while living in Austria jamming with Balkan musicians, and has since returned home as an active artist performing primarily in art galleries and DIY spaces.
12:00pm – 2:00pm

Joe Rihn w/guest GANG GANG DANCE – Audio Days
Audio Days are here. Cross-genre selections and conversations with the musically obsessed.
The newly released Kazuashita is Gang Gang Dance’s first record together since the acclaimed Eye Contact in 2011, produced by Brian DeGraw after recording sessions across several New York studios and art spaces. The trio were joined by drummer Ryan Sawyer (who met the band through the Boredoms’ BOADRUM project) and Jorge Elbrecht (who worked on additional production and mixing duties).
Founded by Lizzi Bougatsos, Brian DeGraw and Josh Diamond, Gang Gang Dance has consistently blurred the boundaries between the New York art and music scenes for nearly two decades. They are as comfortable performing rare improvisational sets at the Whitney Biennial as they are at Coachella, and count Dash Snow & Dan Colen, Tinchy Stryder and the Boredoms as previous collaborators. The current live incarnation of the band features Ryan Sawyer on drums, and Doug Shaw (Highlife, White Magic) on bass.

Machine Project – Human Sound Activities
This show is a first date of a mixtape brought to you by two kindred spirits, a selection of new and old sounds brought together for your listening enjoyment. We hope you appreciate our awkward attempts to impress each other, two music nerds competing to curate a monthly blend of sounds for all the world to hear. From folk songs to post punk and everything in between, love is in the airwaves.
Poetry, words, and sounds by humans with occasional machine assistance.
