HODGE, PESSIMIST, JUJU & JORDASH + a tip of the hat to musical heroes PIERRE HENRY + HOLGAR CZUKAY (of CAN) are featured on the latest ABSTRACT SCIENCE podcast, packed with new music + hosted by CHRIS WIDMAN. WIDMAN begins with a rare 1975 cut from CAN in memoriam of the band’s bassist + founding member HOLGAR CZUKAY who died September 2017. a mix of mostly new uk techno, house + broken beat follows into a bridge set of deconstructed grime. with the tempo up to 140bpm, WIDMAN returns to melodic dancefloor cuts which meld elements of techno, dubstep + electro. closing it out, another CAN selection and an absolute ABSCI favorite–and probably the best thing WILLIAM ORBIT has ever done–a remix of PIERRE HENRY + MICHEL COLOMBIER’s “Pysche Rock”, which FUTURAMA fans might recognize as the source for the show’s theme song. a pioneer of musique concrète, HENRY died in July 2017. [aired 14 september 2017 on WLUW 88.7fm chicago]
