On Delirious Insomniac April 20: Dave Phillips Guest Podcast
Active since 1984, Swiss artist Dave Phillips has not only worked along the lines of metal, punk, hardcore, and classical by way of many separate projects, but he's also produced extensive solo compositions dealing with voice, body sounds, musique concrète, and field recordings. In the 90s, he was a participant in "Psychic Rally", a radio show in Zurich, and between 1999 and 2002, he had a radio show called Zeitgenossen on K/Aarau. His extensive biography inlcudes touring much of the world (either solo, as a member of the bands fear of god, OHNE (with Tom Smith), Schimpfluch Gruppe, and many others, or as a soundperson) working at independent record labels for as long as 6 years, and doing genre defiant turntablism under the name "eva d.". The primitive, yet well refined work of Dave Phillips often heightens the senses and draws attention to, therefore appreciation of, subtle details, while also at times provoking the listener to an introspective, perhaps almost animalistic state. Initiated before the incarnation of Delirious Sunrise, dp will share a deeply engaging hour of music from his personal library on the Delirious Insomniac Freeform Radio Show, April 20th at Midnight Central time, streaming in real time from WLUW, and archived at www.posterityplaylists.blogspot.com .
