In some exciting news, I’ve begun producing and hosting a radio show. It’s called Xen Radio, and it broadcasts on kpiss.fm, an internet radio station in Brooklyn.
Xen Radio features xenharmonic and microtonal music: music that utilizes tuning as a central part of it’s aesthetic. Regular readers of my blog will be familiar with that already, but the show has been on the air twice already, and will broadcast every Tuesday from 12:00-13:00, Eastern Time. Old episodes are available at the KPISS website, and I’ll post my track listings for each episode here. For now, here’s the first two episodes.
