• Hold on to your britches bitches, the 909 is banging beautifully with it’s tom toms and pom poms, like a set of alternative xmas bells. This is the last episode of the year! Take a deep breath, you did it! Lots of soft presents under the techno tree. Among other goodies there’s an unreleased track as fresh as cookies out of the oven. If you don’t know the 909 this is a good opportunity to get introduced to one of the most iconic drum machines since the birth of Jesus Christ and Santa. Hop on to the sleigh and let me take you on a joy ride out of the shadows. Show me love and can you feel it, it’s all gonna snow down on you in this episode. Strap yourself in for a halleluja.

  • "Tell, No Show" is an ongoing series of works for radio in which we ask an artist to present a piece of art that has, in one way or another, had an impact on their practice.

    In this second episode, you will have the pleasure of listening to artist Jeuno Kim, who will introduce us to a performance only experienced once, quite some time ago, by the American artist, filmmaker, and choreographer Yvonne Rainer, under the title "Again? What Now?” performed by the Swedish dance company Weld at Malmø Kunsthal.

    This episode is therefore an exercise in both memory and an attempt to transform a durational physical experience into a coherent piece of language.

    Through shifts in texts, mediums, career paths, and ways of loving, Jeuno takes us through the importance of good teachers, privilege, ice skating, coming out later in life, as well as the unfortunate piece of music, “Bolero."

    Jeuno Kim is an artist, filmmaker, and feminist theologist. She is also the head of the MBA program at the Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen.

    "Tell, No Show" is produced and edited by Jan Høgh Stricker from the Lake Radio and Andreas Führer from Institut Funder Bakke, with the kind support of Statens Kunstfond and Bikuben Fonden.

  • "Katibim Records" is a mixtape project launched by Istanbul-based music critic Özgün Çağlar in 2022.

    Inspired by the Voyager Golden Records, Katibim Records is a collection of modern and folk songs from communities around the world, mixing avant-garde, psychedelic, and the old-fashioned mainstream. It has been broadcast on different radio stations in Turkey.

    Specially produced for The Lake radio listeners, "Katibim Records +" is on air every two weeks. An inter-temporal and inter-genre 'voyage' from former Soviet territories to Latin America, the Levant and Asia. A chance to listen before the aliens!

  • Seasonal Sounds is a seasonal programme which aims to do a sonic interpretation of the current (and coming) season - both in terms of pace, seasonal events and its characteristics. It combines a variety of musical genres, sonic textures and field recordings in a mix for the season.

    Seasonal Sounds #5 marks the beginning of a new year of Seasonal Sounds. This time the season of winter has gotten colder, harsher and more disturbing since we visited it last year. The environment surrounding us cries for attention - howling as it insists on us to face it. I hope we collectively listen to what it has to say, and understand its good intentions for its call to action. Maybe if we listen closely enough, portals of alternative magical worlds will show themselves in the gloomy landscape. WINTER.

  • In this first episode of the third season, you will have the pleasure of listening to American artist Chadwick Rantanen discuss his experience with the work of the American artist Mike Kelley, specifically focusing on Kelley's work "Craft Morphology Flow Chart" from 1991.

    This episode takes its cue from the cuddly toys often encountered in Kelley's work and, through them, brings us from the flea markets of the Midwest to the counterculture haven of California in the '70s, '80s, and '90s, seeking out the rare and noble entanglement of the specific and the convenient.

    Chadwick Rantanen is an artist living in Los Angeles. He primarily works in sculpture, and his work often involves a subtle appropriation of materials typically associated with the medical industry or domestic spaces, along with the subversion of icons and designs.

    “Tell, No Show" is produced and edited by Jan Høgh Stricker from the Lake Radio and Andreas Führer from Institut Funder Bakke with the kind support of Statens Kunstfond and Bikuben Fonden.

  • Our dreams are our antennas. With this radio show, we scroll through their signals. “On the back of that dream” is a search for connections. Where do we go when we dream? And are we alone?

    Our dreams are our flipsides. In this radio show, we turn to our backs, we connect to the ground. The sky is the mirror. The night is the sheet. What do we see? What does it sound like? Is it far away?

    Our dreams are our vowels. In this radio show, we connect their pearls on our strings; we feel their gaps, we make them meet in their words and let them shape their sentences. “On the back of that dream” is a dream coming true on the back.

    We are so lucky to have met there.

  • For you
    For who
    For plurals
    For speeches
    For crisises
    For gentleness
    For saying something
    For not saying nothing
    And still not saying anything
    For being hopelessly abstract
    Shaping a shadow
    Holding a friend.

    For my forehead
    My eyebrows
    A room
    Dirty with
    A visualization, a memory & a couple of songs....

    Lets lie down, back to ground
    And seek nothing other than seeking
    Let it come
    Let it all

  • The swedish musician Isak Hedtjärn does many things. Mainly he plays clarinett, saxophone and flute in a long range of different bands and projects - Grismask, Svenska Folkjazzkvartetten, Fire! Orchestra, Viagra Boys, Kali Malone, to name a few. But he's also a sort of jazz influencer.
    His Instagram @jazzisak has over 100 000 followers. And his feed is just full of videos where the sound has been replaced with jazz.

    In this portrait, Isak talks about his journey with the clarinett and goes deep into some of the music and memories that have shaped him as a person and a musician.

    "Hemma hos Jazz-Isak" is made by swedish music journalist and radio producer Mattias Wallenius for The Lake Radio. It was mixed by Daniel Säfström.

    The programme is in swedish.

  • We go minimal and controlled with the Germans, in particular Köln (Cologne). Home of all tracks kompakt und profan. The art of putting together a meal of just a few ingredients, that works. Also it’s moonday. We get to feel the vinyl dust and stunning synth stabs through a dubby delay over heavy bass notes that drag along the floor. But don’t worry, right after this experience you’ll meet a happy-go-lucky track that makes you wonder if it even has a time frame. I’ve collected these german gems to shine on you. Super geil. Genau.

  • We enter this episode in the darkness of the dancefloor which brings out our other senses to explore, other than the eyesight which is the second sense to be activated when we’re born. The first sense enabled is the hearing, which is also the last one to go, when we leave this earth. We speed up the bpm and listen to a millenial trancer, millenial as in the year 2000, as this track was made in the 90s, before the word “millenial” was used to describe a generation. There’s a little pearl of sound towards the end, made by a voice, a sort of human arpeggiator which to some degree simulate a synthetic voice, allthough recorded in all it’s natural shape. A danish synth builder ends this episode gracefully and I call out for every listener to experience peace in the midst of brutal times. Take care out there.

  • The indian summer is bliss and slowly we'll enter autumn. Cycle of life on planet Earth. We enter this episode with a 90s feel, a windows system hacked into something better and more fun. I talk about new things like new names and new discoveries. We're all on a journey, passing through, taking in the scenery, evolving like a pathway in the electric circuitry of a synth. Processing, modulation and control modules. The body tells us so much. We go through big reverbs, pauses, distortion, tiptoeing beats in a room, squarewaves edging up through filters, everything changes. Wax your ears and get ready to meet the new you. This episode is a trip into unknown land. Vamos!
