RADIO ROYAL (CZ)

Prague based duo Radio Royal uses all the kinds of waste sound (audio feedback, hiss, hum, scratched vinyls) and found audio (old cassetes, magnetic tape and vinyls) and turns them into the specific mixture of noise and easy listening. Quite contemporary sound is all created by digging into old media and using some old fashion equipment like tape echos and cheap reverb. Music of the project is an erratic blend of psychedelic and spaced-out propulsions, chameleonic improvisation sections, psychotic squeezing noise forays, mesmerizing repetition-heavy electronica, however, ideologically resulting from the tradition of early electronic days (regarding the academic or classical music circuits) and the synthesis-induced krautrock alchemy (Conrad Schnizler, Roedelius-Moebius) and the tradition of NY, California and Chicago-based improvised noise and sound art.
