Surgery 250 : Peter Rehberg

Surgery 250 : Peter Rehberg

I had been planning a themed program for episode 250 but hadn't settled on an artist or a label to spotlight when the unfortunate news of Peter Rehberg's death was announced. At the time I was first digging into the world of experimental music a good portion of my listening time was spent in the world of micro electronic improvisation, which was also a world Rehberg inhabited. Over time it became clear that his focus and talent was multivalent, easily crossing invisible boundaries of noise, electroacoustic, ambient, and occasionally even approaching melody. It was his stewardship of the Editions Mego (formally simply Mego) label that is probably his enduring legacy, allowing so many stellar artists a platform to debut and develop over its 25 year span. This is a small sampling of his projects, both individual and collaborative to illustrate his singular vision.

A slightly shorter show this week... and a special one... drawing from one of my favourite resources: The Quietus. I'm a fan of year end lists, but sometimes they can be quite repetitive. A break in the repetition is what The Quietus year end list always provides. And discoveries aplenty. They've also starting doing midyear lists as well, and this week's show has eleven tracks from albums they've picked and ones that we'd either overlooked or were just plain not on our radar. Enjoy.

This week's show is a bit "off topic," precipitated by a combination of factors including a malfunction POS system that ate up the time generally used to gather new tracks.
