Erk FM: Australia 384 – Bigsound 2013 Part 2 (Day 1, Live)

Welcome to Erk FM: Australia episode 384. This episode was recorded live on location at various venues on night 1 of Bigsound Live. Bigsound 2013 was a conference/showcase in Brisbane in mid September. Bringing together a range of musicians & music industry people from Australia and beyond), it was an exciting conference for Erk FM. It was a great way to meet people that I have only spoken to online and/or heard online via this podcast. There were days of conference sessions that I did not attend as well as 2 nights of live music across 12 venues in Fortitude Valley.

 

As you might be able to imagine, I was in podcasting & music heaven. However, I was (obviously) unable to cover the entire event because there’s only so much one person (me!) can do.

 

A very big thank you to Stephen, Andrew & Sarah from SGC Media for arranging these interviews & my media accreditation. Interviews from the event can be heard on Erk FM: Australia episode 382.

 

In coming weeks, there will be episodes recorded live on location featuring live tracks (Erk FM: International 383 & Erk FM: Australia 386) as well as studio tracks (Erk FM: International episode 385 & Erk FM: Australia 388, 390). Studio tracks from bands on this episode will feature on Erk FM: Australia episode 388.

Erk FM: Australia 380 – On Location From Helen Perris’ Palace In Suburbia

Welcome to Erk FM: Australia episode 380. On this episode, Erk ventures from one part of western Sydney to another to meet singer, songwriter, pianist, music teacher & mother, Helen Perris. During the wide ranging interview, we talk about music, teaching of music, Helen’s previous EP Flesh, her new EP that is (at the time of recording) being crowd funded and a lot more.  

 

 

Erk is very used to recording interviews on location with the associated distractions and noise but having an interviewee with baby in attendance was very interesting. Erk would like to stress that no babies (including the baby that you will hear often on this episode, affectionately known as Mr 0 – for the moment at least – on social media) were harmed during the recording of this interview. Included on this episode are a couple of tracks from the Flesh EP & a live recording of Palace In Suburbia as recorded by Erk at The Newsagency in 2012.  […]

Erk FM: International 379 – Swedway Norden

Welcome to Erk FM: International episode 379. On an episode of Erk FM: Metal Monday, Erk found metal from the Nordic region of Europe. Finding tracks from Sweden & Norway (often in part referred to as part of Scandinavia), that episode reflected the people of the area. So on this episode, Erk thought he would try the same experiment but with music that is not metal.
