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.

I wrote a blog piece for the Sound And Music organisation recently, outlining the approach I took to develop the Gene Pool artist network meeting into a series of efficient radio, podcast and live streamed broadcasting projects.
“In 2004, I began hosting a small artist networking group with invited guest speakers, using the name the Gene Pool. Anyone who works outside of a large metropolitan area will know how hard it is to motivate people to regularly get out and engage in a wider discussion about the cultural landscape and the creative practice of other artists.
The guest speakers were great, generous with their time, and provided excellent insights and examples of work. The audience for them rarely went above 10 people.
I wanted to turn those 10 people into 1000 people, and the way I did it started a train of thought which is still developing and full of potential now”
