Played This Week

September 11, 2009

After listening to some recently accumulated episodes of Surgery Radio this week, I figured it’s time to include it here. I’ve been enjoying this program, produced by Fredericton’s own Eric Hill, for a couple of years, and would certainly recommend it to anyone interested in experimental sounds.

Each episode is an hour mix of nearly seamless sound, often focusing on the more tranquil side of contemporary electronic and experimental. While at CHSR, I always enjoyed listening to these shows when they played, and still do now, for all the same reasons. Those being primarily that Eric plays stuff nobody else does, and that the shows have a way of creating a space for you to inhabit, defining it throughout their duration track by track until you get to the end and get a sense of the whole. Sometimes the selections favour melody, and sometimes more formless, abstract stuff, but the episodes are most often some balance of waves of both, and are always intriguing. Great selections and sequencing are real strong points of the shows, and on the website there are complete playlists with all the tracks and times provided. Take your pick of the 86 installments currently posted, there’s a whole lot of great stuff in there.
