One hour of tonight’s TCT program via KPFT, features dj x∃n as he presents a love letter to John Cage in celebration of his 100th birthday. His set ties directly into Cage’s work in the spirit of his free view of composition. dj x∃n gives you not 4’33″ but 67’49″ of Creative Commons licensed music — a garden of sound he jokingly calls “rusty cage.”
The program also includes work from Crepusculo, bemônio, HXDK, Ech(o) + Flat Affect, The Sugar Beats, Backyard Ghost, Stirner + Sue69, Black Circle Records, Ambienteer and more.
The Chestnut Tree programs via KPFT and ∃ radio features a mix of conceptual field recordings and electronic music of Brandon Locher from his albums: Conversations 2012, Sleeping Music, Six Prepared Meditations, and more.
Our 12.01.2011 and 12.08.2011 programs featured audio from the short films of Rob Parrish [a four time Rosebud Film Festival winner] via his website Next To Heaven. He combines found public domain footage elaborately edited with original A/V material creating surreal weekly short films.
The program will combine the Creative Commons music of Christian Doil, Implicit Order, Kirill Platonkin, Mystified and Saluki Regicide with Parrish’s work. If you enjoy the audio, you will certainly want to see more.

“Rahul Mitra is an artist, printmaker, writer and scientist. Mitra’s work is an interpretation of how time and space (localization or globalization) influences perception (cultural or individual or political).
