Museum of Techno – Karaoke

Objective achieved – we rocked the broadcast hut seven times, and have completed our series of radio programmes for Resonance 104.4FM. Thanks to everyone who tuned in and gave us your more or less consistently rapturous feedback. Here is the final episode, Karaoke.

In this episode, the Technicians are charged with organising a night out for the Museum staff.

We discuss the impact on nightclubs, electronic music and other forms of group entertainment of communicable diseases like swine flu, and the fundamental links between the will to public performance, social satus and sexual success in various cultural contexts.

The show features the our customary guerilla sound design, including phonography from one of Croydon’s most generic pubs, and culminates in a rare live musical performance by Braidy and Cornwell – to the music of Mr David Powell.

Many thanks to everyone who’s contributed to the show, and to everyone who’s listened and given us your valuable feedback. We hope to be back soon with more over-produced yet underthought nonsense in the nearest possible future.

Museum on Resonance 104.4FM Tue 8 Sep 22:30(UK)

Good afternoon. Time for a final slice (for a while) of radio-related mayhem-cake from us.

Tonight at 22:30 UK / 17:30 EST / 14:30 US Pacific, the final episode in our current radio series will be broadcast on Resonance FM. It will be entitled “Karaoke.”

In this episode, the Technicians are charged with organising a night out for the Museum staff.

Oh – the show’s repeated at 15:30 UK time on Saturday, and archives are available on our Soundcloud page, http://soundcloud.com/museumoftechno.

Cheers, have a great week

Museum of Techno – Mr Foley

With this week’s show about to be broadcast on Resonance FM tonight, we’re ready to upload last week’s episode, Mr Foley. The show features the work of guerilla foley artist, sound designer and mixer Steve Goldsmith (http://www.mrsteveproductions.com). He tells us how to wring a ghoulish sonic palette of violence from a bag of cheap veg; Cornwell and Braidy realise that sound effect design might represent a possible way to supplement their income; and they get a bit carried away.
