Secret ruins and Abandoned sounds… from Atlantis to Paris a 2 hour Golden Apples selection of strange and beautiful music – most importantly it includes a live performance of a song from Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin that is in the video above – you could actually just watch the video of Jane and Serge and watch their looks and glances and how ‘hard’ Serge plays the piano – its the secret ruins of love and the abandoned sounds of love lost – they had already separated and Serge died only a few months later…

with Claude Mono

Veronica Vasicka explores French, German and Japanese synth music

Always impeccable selections. (UPDATE Even if the restreams are gone the tracklists are still there to explore the music.

On Red Bull Radio Veronica Vasicka presents pioneering moments in the underground scene of synthesisers, drum machines and experimental electronics. The Minimal Wave and Cititrax label founder explores the many artists who have shaped the electronic underground. Taking a closer look at international scenes through the ’80s and further back, each month Veronica Vasicka examines the maverick spirit of DIY nonconformists, as well as the legacies of particular drum machines and the foundations of early synthesizer music. This Side of Nowhere examines the moments in history when the musical rule book was ripped up and reassembled with new technology.

Veronica Vasicka dives into the emergent electronic scene that erupted through the ’70s and ’80s in Germany, tracing the roots of synth music back to its cosmic proto-techno sound of the 1970s, before charting its developments within the post punk underground, from minimal electronics to synth pop, by artists such as DAF, Sylvia, Grauzone and Einstürzende Neubauten.

Listen here

Veronica Vasicka explores Japanese minimal synth tracks from the late-’70s to the mid-’80s. There’s a vast amount of material from this period, so here she selects some of her favorite tracks from some of the most pioneering bands of the Japanese underground electronic scene — listen in for releases from Osaka’s Vanity label, as well as private-press records from Tokyo and beyond.

Listen here 

The Minimal Wave founder takes a two-hour trip through ’80s French electronic pop chansons, exploring a rich phase in the country’s underground musical history. Here we celebrate France’s synth pop culture as part of the Red Bull Music Festival Paris, and discover songs from Nini Raviolette, Elli & Jacno, Deux, Kas Product, Lizzy Mercier Descloux, Mary Möör, Mathématiques Modernes and X-Ray Pop.
