Mixing It – BBC Radio 3

Robert Sandall and Mark Russell report from the Belgian cities of Ghent, Antwerp and Brussels. They talk to members of the group dEUS, electronica artist Eavesdropper, chamber rock drummer Daniel Denis, electro waste buskers Kapotski, singer-songwriter An Pierle, and robot maker, performance artist and composer Godfried-Willem Raes.

Mixing It followed kapotski as they went busking with a pile of old electric equipment (including a food blender and a child’s electronics kit called the ‘Science Fair’), a load of other toys and lots of percussion. They went to the Bar Centraal in the middle of Brussels where they were allowed to set up and perform. The piece ended when the food blender began to smoke and blew a fuse.

Mixing It was celebrated as a bastion of experimental music radio. Hosted by Robert Sandall and Mark Russell, it covered a wide range of styles, including left-field areas of modern classical, dance, rock and world music. The last edition was broadcast on 9th February, 2007
