SOUND ON SCREEN: Apichatpong Weerasethakul

Music is scarce in Apichatpong Weerasethakul's films, and yet it plays an essential role. Not many directors have used songs in such an epiphany inducing way: music is not revealing something that would have been concealed in the plot, but instead channels all the emotional states the viewers have been through and bring them into…Lire la suite SOUND ON SCREEN: Apichatpong Weerasethakul

NTS – DECEMBER 2021 W/ PAM & CALEYS SWEETNSOUR

This month's show was recorded on two different continents : LA-based artist Caleys Sweetnsour offered us a flash of raw energy in the form of 1-hour long mix of Japanese punk and new wave songs - one of the best mixtape to skateboard to I've heard in recent years.

NTS – AUGUST 2020 W/ PAM : 10 PIANO PIECES + 1 & MUSIC ON 45 – PART. I

I think the title of the show speaks for itself. All by myself, I decided to record not one but two 60 minutes specials : The first one is all about piano pieces that are dear to my heart - ranging from Messiaen, to Thelonious Monk via Sakamoto and Mary Lou Williams. The "+ 1"…Lire la suite NTS – AUGUST 2020 W/ PAM : 10 PIANO PIECES + 1 & MUSIC ON 45 – PART. I
