Radioland: Kraftwerk's Radio-Activity Revisited
Published 15 January 2015 by DM


To mark its 40th anniversary, Kraftwerk's pioneering Radio-Activity album has been revisited and reimagined by a stellar Anglo-French trio: our own Matthew Bourne along with composer Franck Vigroux and artist Antoine Schmitt.

Drawing on their diverse backgrounds in jazz and improvisation, electronic composition and visual installation, Bourne, Vigroux and Schmitt’s Radioland project turns the original album inside out, using analogue synths and electronics intensified by some striking live video work.

This brand new live experience promises to transport the listener into a futuristic audiovisual world, imagined by Kraftwerk in 1975 and reconstructed in this bold new manifestation for 2015.

This footage from early rehearsals of Radioland speaks for itself:

'Radioland' will be performed at the the following venues:

13th March - LEEDS Belgrave Music Hall (Part of IFAI)
19th March - BRIGHTON Komedia (promoted by Melting Vinyl)
20th March - LONDON Village Underground
21st March - BRISTOL Colston Hall
22nd March - EXETER Phoenix (part of Vibraphonic)
23rd March - MILTON KEYNES The Stables

Wildbirds & Peacedrums soundtrack Fortitude TV drama
Published 26 January 2015 by DM


The sparse beauty of Wildbirds & Peacedrums’ ‘Peeling Off The Layers’ has been selected to soundtrack Sky Atlantic’s new flagship series Fortitude. Music director and composer Ben Frost has chosen the track from the Swedish duo’s 2010 album Rivers as the series’ title music.

Recorded by Frost in Reykjavík’s Guðríðarkirkja church with the Schola Cantorum Reykjavík Chamber Choir (arranged by Hildur Guðnadóttir), the track reflects the breathtaking Icelandic scenery that acts as the backdrop to Fortitude’s unsettling narrative. Keep an ear out for more Wildbirds material later in the series.

Featuring a heavyweight cast of Stanley Tucci, Michael Gambon, Christopher Eccleston and Sofie Grabol, Fortitude premieres on Thursday January 29th at 9pm.
