Accordion Noir Radio Playlist 2016-11-30, Pauline Oliveros Tribute (with Soundscape Radio)

December 1, 2016

unknown-2In memoriam for Pauline Oliveros who died this week. A pioneer in electronic music since the 1960’s, boundary-breaking experimental accordionists, and a woman and a lesbian in a field dominated by men. We’ll miss her dearly.

I was proud to interview Oliveros and talk about her history with the accordion when she visited Vancouver in 2008. We include a few samples during tonight’s special two-hour broadcast collaboration between Accordion Noir and Co-op Radio’s Soundscape sound-art program (co-hosting with Brady Marks). Oliveros created a link between our disparate programs and it felt good to share this tribute.

Tonight’s episode can be streamed in two parts here:
