Amazing recording of the first musical meeting of these two artists.
Globe trotting sound artist, Simon Whetham and composer/wind player, Jan Hendrickse performed together as part of the “Embedded” season of live streamed “sofa concerts”.
The duo performed a 45 minute set of spontaneous music, 30 minutes of which is captured in this Gene Pool episode. Simon Whetham mixes his original field recordings with live sound from an amplified metal bucket, fire grate and other objects. Jan Hendrickse uses a variety of winds, including bass flute with delicate electronic tones.
The Gene Pool Radio Show is presented on Soundart Radio 102.5FM. The podcast can be delivered directly into your Mac/PC, tablet or mobile via our iTunes Channel.

However, I’m really pleased with this season of Gene Pool: Digital Culture shows, which in 2012 have included sound artist, Stephen Cornford and the AudioGraft 2012 Festival (which included an interview with Max Eastley among others).
I became interested and active in developing new approaches to audiences for artists and culture organisations, and as part of that pulled together “Beyond The Stage” a Skype discussion with Joumana Mourad of iJAD Dance Co. and John Darvell of Nocturn Dance – both live performance companies who are exploring and utilising digital means to create new experiences for viewers.
Shows on 3D Printing and Gamification covered new and emerging techniques and technologies, while my final two shows brought Arts & Business‘ Digital Overlord and Guardian contributor, Patrick Hussey, plus Rewired State director, Emma Mulqueeny and developer, Jim Anning in to talk about future trends and educational initiatives. All busy people who totally know their eggs, and yet are willing to spare time and go out of their way to have a conversation for broadcast. Something I’ve never asked my guests is: why bother?
