about

This often hyper-edited program was webcast on DFM out of Amsterdam on January 18th, 2015 and seeks to artistically represent, in a more or less dissociated format, the cultural conversation about masculinity at the time. It includes many samples, and examples, from that conversation. The entire program is almost 3 hours long and is meant to be heard and taken in its entirety. More derivative tracks are not available separately.

A word of advice on listening to this program:

If much of this program comes off as 'sonic flotsam and jetsam'... a kind of grasping at straws with no real answers? Congratulations. It's deliberate. And it's rather 'my take' on the whole 'masculinity debate' itself... a confusing conversation in which everybody seems to have the answer to what 'a man' even is, and yet at the same time, nobody really does.

(What do YOU think??)

It continues in this fashion for a long time, until a point in which a cool, calm voice of wisdom speaks about the nature of self-made men from an old text, like a beam of warm sunlight shining through stormy rainclouds.

After that point, the mix becomes more linear as it drives on towards its conclusion.

This program is not for sale and is meant to be listened to, and taken, as a whole work. All derived material used herein is accredited and transformed and is used fairly, not for the purpose of profit, but for self-expression as well as the cultural enrichment and education of the public at large.

A monetary fee is not required to download or stream this program. Any proceeds collected through this page are therefore considered to be gratuities given in appreciation for this work and/or the creative effort behind it, or to help support the expenses of that creative effort.
