Interview with ROMAIN SLOCOMBE, September 2007

It sometimes happens but I do not remember at all when this radio show had taken place but it was approximately either in August or September 2007. What I know for sure is that the interview with Romain Slocombe was held in March 2007 and was later published in Timeless Magazine. I don’t remember neither all the music that we programmed, but it was really great, we focused on crazy Japanese-like music mixed with songs by Ground Zero, Boris Kovak, Toshiro Mayuzumi, People Like Us, DDAA, Superstrings, Throbbing Gristle, Ikue Mori, Hint, Gorgonzola Legs, Norma Loy, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Esplendor Geometrico or Graeme Revell. The show started and ended with Buddhist mantras and it was dedicated to the theme of Japanese dolls and prosthetic art, in the company of the great master of these questions, the writer and photographer, Romain Slocombe. We read excerpts from some of his books like Brume de Printemps, Saké de Brume or La Japonaise de St John’s Wood. The general atmosphere of it all is quite surrealistic. The interview was done in a gallery with a church-like reverb, and there’s traditional Japanese music playing in the background. Very strange.
