Retro Futurism

Retro Futurism airs Fridays midnight - 2am on Melbourne's Triple R 102.7FM during November 2012.

Retro Futurism looks backward to look forward, celebrating musical modernists working on the edges of composition, improvisation, quantisation, from Schoenberg to Sun Ra, from Darmstadt to Detroit, from vocoder to VST, from yesterday to tomorrow...

From the harmonic revolutions of Vienna, the Impressionist mists of Paris, through the serial, aleatoric, stochastic, concrete, electro-acoustic, improvisation and electronic experiments made throughout the twentieth and twenty first centuries, as well as songs about spaceships, robots and the cosmos.

Retro Futurism is future music, regardless of heritage.
