Episode 03 will host Andy Ortmann. Andy has been making eclectic electronic experimental music since 1990. His early efforts yielded abrasive synthesizer and electro-acoustic recordings where the more recent albums are of higher concepts and technical execution. Andy curates Nihilist Records label, performs with the noise project Panicsville and produces a radio show for WFMU called The Eternal Now.
Radius will be premiering his newest work RAPE OF NANKING. In anticipation of the 75th anniversary of the Nanking Massacre, Ortmann constructed a three hour piece of electronic music that in some minor way, reflects on and/or interprets the inhumanity and abominable brutality of which humans are capable. RAPE OF NANKING will run for two consecutive Monday and Wednesdays on March 21, 23, 28 and 30 at 6pm CST.
