Resonance FM 4/6/15

I started this episode with Super Sounds Namba, an Ebo Taylor funk project, before jumping across the African continent from Ghana to Ethiopia to play a song by Teshome Wolde. I span Delia Derbyshire's 1967 experiment 'Ziwzih Ziwzih oo-oo-oo', a ludicrously innovate tape reel experiment that is - in some senses - proto-techno or even proto-hip hop. I then played a song from Vladimir Cosma's electro-medieval-children's record Enfance, followed by Momus's autotuned 'Nervous Heartbeat'. I closed the show with a beautiful choral piece by the Old Harp Singers of Eastern Tennessee. The recording was made in 1951 and is a rendition of a shape-note tunebook song from 1848. Understandably, this recording is part of the Smithsonian Centre of Folklife and Cultural Heritage.
