Pattern Dissection x Cashmere Radio

Feature analysis:

Pattern Dissection
Feature Comparison in Memory

This monthly radio show is dedicated to records that deliver sounds usually meant to be experienced live. With a strong focus on improvised music and free jazz, the programme’s presentation itself is spontaneous and aims to play tricks on comparison, memory and (re)cognition by reshaping stimuli’s distinctive features — it is basically ninety minutes of messing things up.
