X-RAY AUDIO: THE STRANGE STORY OF SOVIET MUSIC ON THE BONE

In the Soviet Union during the cold war era, the music people could listen to was ruthlessly controlled by the State, but a secret underground subculture of music lovers and bootleggers defied the censor.

Incredibly, they built their own recording machines and used a risky and extraordinary means to share forbidden jazz, rock ‘n’ roll and banned Russian music – they cut the music they loved onto used x-ray film and made their own records.

The X-Ray Audio Project tells their story with a book, award wining documentary, travelling exhibition and live events.

From the 12th – 25th November, see the exhibition live at #JagerSoho // Soho Radio.

Catch the story of the bootleggers at 6pm on the Culture channel, 12th – 16th November.

MUTE and specifically the influential independent British label’s founder, Daniel Miller, have never been ones for looking back. The label has always sought ways to celebrate all of its varied artists, but there has never been a focus on just the label. MUTE 4.0 (1978 > TOMORROW) is not about to change that, but it has prompted the idea of creating a series of special events and releases that will go further than 2018 with plans for 2019 and beyond. MUTE 4.0 (1978 > TOMORROW) acknowledges the launch of a label that started out of necessity rather than design (to release the 7” single by The Normal, ‘T.V.O.D.’ / ‘Warm Leatherette’, recorded by Daniel Miller on a KORG 700S keyboard with a TEAC four-track recorder), and marks the past 40 years, but crucially, looks forward to the label’s many years to come as it travels unapologetically into tomorrow. A whole host of special events and releases are planned, with more to be announced, stretching over 2018 and beyond.

The KPM Allstars Live

Library music’ is at the heart of some of our most-loved British sounds: the rousing introduction to Grandstand, the theme to Mastermind, the afternoon quirkiness of the Grange Hill opening credits. Made for TV and radio, library music offers glorious, perfect pieces of pop. Often brilliantly creative, and recorded in some of the world’s finest studios it has become increasingly popular slice of musical history.

With Alan Hawkshaw, of The Mohawks fame, Keith Mansfield, a favourite provider of samples, Brian Bennett, the longest serving stick-man from The Shadows, John Cameron, award winning film composer and Alan Parker, guitarist who taught David Bowie and Jimi Hendrix a few tricks. Not to forget the star of the show, Hawkshaw’s battered Hammond which gave us the greatest organ groove ever written, The Mohawks The Champ.

Join some of library music label KPM’s star composers and their big band and listen back to The KPM Allstars at the British Library, originally broadcasted live on Soho Radio.
