Originally broadcast on ResonanceFM in London


In conjunction with the publication of Yodel in HiFi: From Kitsch Folk to Contemporary Electronica [UWP, 2013], bart plantenga decided to present mostly artists featured in the book, concentrating on the reinventors, retoolers, rediscoverers & renovators. The yodel takes the voice sonically & not necessarily unmelodically to the edge of where noise meets music, where roots reach into the cosmos & pop music can sound both evocative & edgy. The show features Phil Minton & Kutzkelina, who will be among the highlights of this year’s Rotterdam Opera Days & will perform on May 30.
