"For Radio On" is 6 episodes towards a reflexion on cassettes, a tribute to the “tape in a box” which celebrates her 50 years in 2013. This special program for Radio On can be also considered as an outlet of what goes on in my laboratory under the roof, with the aim to look for new personal ways to use cassette tapes in my performances and materials in my work of composition.
Episode #4 - STEAD WITHIN
Looking for new personal ways to use cassettes for performances and composition, “Stead Within” is the fourth episode produced by Anton Mobin of an ongoing serie of 6 programs celebrating cassette tapes to be broadcasted on Radio On by Adrian Shephard and Rinus van Alebeek.
