The Master-Disciple Relationship in Music

Peter Hammill & Van Der Graaf Generator /
Claudio Milano (NichelOdeon/InSonar)

"Maledetti Poeti"

The 4 acts theatrical radioshow broadcasting on Federico Fusj's

from an idea by Stefano Giannotti (OTEME)

Celebrating Peter Hammill's forthcoming album "In Translation" out on May 7h 2021 for Fie!

Much more than a radio broadcast, a creative act tout court and therefore an act of courage, with humility, devotion and insolence enough to be able to say oneself authentically free.

Dozens of recordings in 4 acts, every Monday in April 2021 to include unreleased, remasters, out of stock music.

Each introduction was recorded between October 2020 and March 2021 and with low fi means as a performative act to include acting, singing, underground radio speaking, between irony, satire, confession, drama, pure intuition.

In short, what is present here is not elsewhere and never to the same extent.

Throwing Light on your Shadow
Broadcasting the Life
The Declaration of Non Belonging to any Music Field
Thinking only of the Present as the farthest Future with the awareness of the Past ("In a minute there is time / For decisions and revisions which a minute will reverse" T. S. Eliot)

Claudio Milano

On this radio show you will listen to Peter Hammill and Van Der Graaf Generator as well as Claudio Milano (NichelOdeon / InSonar and Relatives) music. And the cost makes it worth it: IT'S FREE ...and your listening is already a precious present. But whoever leaves an offering will not be subject to any divine curse.
