BLOODLINES: Musical Offspring

BLOODLINES: Musical Offspring Does music run in ones blood? Can the spirit and verve of an accomplished songwriter be passed down from one generation to another? Theres probably a case for both nature and nurture playing their part but over the decades there have been some strong examples of artists whose offspring have also forged their Continue reading

Arts Wednesday 14 November 2018 89.7 Eastside FM

Ed Lippmann once again joins us at 10:40 am with Part 5 of Technology and Architecture and this week the topic is the twentieth century.

With summer now upon us, I am taking the opportunity to replay and interview I recorded some years ago with entomologist, Bryce Peters, from UTS, talking about the creepy crawlies set to try us in the hot weather: cockroaches, flies and mosquitos.

Music start s and finishes with architecture, with bugs in between.

Do join me.

Finding Voice- a new documentary about writers who are refugees and asylum seekers 89.7 Eastside FM

Finding Voice is a 25 minute documentary produced by Eastsides Mick Paddon together with Bangladeshi poet, writer and journalist Humayun Reza

When I first met Humayun Reza, all I knew about him was that he was from Bangladesh and was seeking asylum in Australia with his wife and two daughters. He is a quiet and reflective man, and I knew the last thing to ask an asylum seeker, straight out, is why? The experiences are too personal and often too raw for that. So it has taken conversations over months for me to get to know him. I found out he is a published poet and very experienced print and digital journalist. His exposures of genocide in the 1971 war for Bangladeshi independence, led to him seeking asylum following serious and repeated death threats. He and his family now have refugee status in Australia, but he has yet to recover his voice as a poet and writer.
He is not alone. Many people seeking asylum or who are refugees have been writers. Most of them, like him, have, in effect, been silenced. They face the same challenge: if the written word and language are part of your identity and how make your living, how do you express yourself in another place where the language is different and the words have no context?
In Finding Voice you will hear from Humayun and from another journalist and novelist, Behrouz Bouchani, a Kurdish writer incarcerated on Manus Island who has just published a 400 page book, No Friend But the Mountains, in English, written as text messages and sent by phone. You will also hear from three Australian writers who have worked with refugees, Janet Galbraith, Mark Isaacs and Debra Adelaide.
Humayun dreams of being a writer in the English language, but his final thoughts are that a writer has no specific nationality, his or her identity is a writer.

NEW MUSIC: Benjamin Folke Thomas  Tasteless and Complacent

Benjamin Folk Thomas has just released his new album Modern Man on Aveline Records and one of the finest moments on the records is this track, Tasteless and Complacement. Its a song that rides along with effortless momentum, wordless melodies cascading around the Swedish songwriter as he sings of dark clouds, acid rain, missing inspiration Continue reading

Country fans rejoice! Theres a huge new festival coming your way in 2019 Tone Deaf

Just like the Christmas decorations in the shops, it seems that festival lineups are getting announced earlier and earlier every year.

This rings especially true for the newly announced Country to Country music festival(C2C), a European based country music event that is set to touch down in Brisbane and Sydney next September.

Headlining the inaugural Australian event will be country superstar Tim McGrawbringing with him an extensive back-catalog that includes a cool 50 million record sales and three Grammys.

Also featuring on the first lineup announcement is pop-country fusion queen Kelsea Ballerini & American act Midland (not the Perth suburb).

With the event making its world debut at the O2 arena in the UK in 2013, and expanding throughout Europe in 2015 expect this to be one of the biggest new festivals on the calendar, offering a companion event to the likes of Tamworth Country Music Festival, Sounds From The Vines and CMC Rocks.

The event is set to host 10 hours of some of the finest international and local acts, spread across multiple stages, bringing the sounds of the traditionally rural music scene into the heart of Brisbane and Sydney.

While admittedly only taking in two cities and bypassing a vast majority of the country music market in Australia, itll only be a matter of time before the event expands out to more territories.

Check out Tim McGraws latest single Neon Church

While many purists might scoff at the idea of a country music festival establishing itself on the seemingly unending Aussie festival  summer circuit, expect to see C2C bringing a refreshing change to the beat-ridden, glitter-dominated festival grounds, as well as a whole crop of new Aussie acts stepping up alongside some of the worlds best.

More acts are expected to be announced soon but for now, check out the details below.

Independent Artist of the Week: Bachelor Pad FBi Radio

Photo: Jake Delaney 

According to Wikipedia, Bachelor Pad is an elimination-style American reality television game show, but allow us to disambiguate for you its also a wild-eyed Sydney garage punk band that wed much rather get behind.

Over the past 8 years Huw, Tim, Grace & Billy have more or less been churning away with their lo-fi recordings as Bachelor Pad, running the gamut from garage surf rock to garage rock classic and now a little spicier punk rock. Reliably, theyve given us fun, sharp, guitar-heavy jams, with a blend of brash percussion, synth undercurrents and instantly likeable lyrics.

In the three years since they released their second album, Bachelor Pad is for the People, Bachie have gone down another route. This years seen the arrival of the first bunch of jams since BPIFTP, with the decision to cut songs to two minutes and under getting the point across quicker and more effectively. Rather than LPs, theyve also gone for EPs probs keeping in line with their short & sweet ethos, amirite?

With gems like Im an Adult and Living for the Weekend on Augusts nifty-named BPEP17, its follow up is already on the horizon. Easy Living is the first taste of BPEP18, comically addressing the modern-day dilemmas that come with having a lot going on, cos were too busy living. Although its apparently not the case for Bachelor Pad, as BPEP18s due v. soon

Robots will soon match humans in creativity, emotional intelligence "IndyWatch Feed Sydney"

As if we didnt already have enough to worry about when it comes to artificially intelligent machines being able to perform many tasks faster and better than humans can, potentially stealing our jobs in the future and presenting what some technologists worry is an existential threat to humanity, now it appears AI will soon be able to match humans at being, well, human, too.

An Australian AI expert, Toby Walsh, said during the Festival of Dangerous Ideas in Sydney recently that he thinks AI will learn and possibly match human traits like creativity, emotional intelligence and adaptability in less than 50 years. And Walsh a Scientia Professor of Artificial Intelligence at UNSW Sydney predicts robots will be as smart as humans by the year 2062.

But dont worry about them ultimately presenting some sort of threat or something as drastic as potentially wiping out mankind, he adds. Weve been rather mislead by this idea that the robots are going to take over, Walsh told Time Out. The robots have no desires of their own, they do exactly what we tell them to. Im much more worried about incompetence than malevolence that well get the machines to do something and we havent thought carefully about how its going to interact with our complex world Healthcare, transport, how we manufacture things, how we educate ourselves, how we go out and play its going to touch almost every aspect of our lives.

Its interesting to think about this other side of increasingly smarter machines and to ask questions about the fundamental nature of consciousness and emotion. These right-brain characteristics of being human, things like creativity and emotion and the like we like to think they will save us or somehow set us apart from machines that are radically smarter, faster and better at us in other things. But if they eventually get to be as creative as us to complement their already stellar analytical capabilities, what then?

When Walsh says hes worried, though, its not about what the machines will do. Its us hes worried about. Mankind, he says, needs to do a better job of creating machines and AI systems that are aligned with our values now.
