1 August 2020 (Uneasy Chairs In Bed & More!)

We bring you a #New episode of What’s This Called? on Freeform Portland featuring 2 hours of #ExperimentalMusic #Drone #Noise and #StrangeMusic including a sampling of tracks from the new In Bed compilation by Seattle based experimental sound artist Patrick Neill Gundran AKA Uneasy Chairs. 2-4 PM Pacific Standard Time.

Your host Ricardo Wang interviewed Patrick and the #TechnologicalIssues which ensued made for an unintentional noise music performance. Ricardo opted to celebrate this and roll with it and what you have is a take on the noises with a noisy perspective unlike any interview you’ve ever heard before. Or maybe just, Huh?

About Ricardo Wang

I began doing Public/Community/College radio at KUGS FM in Bellingham, WA in 1985 and was there until 1987. I spent 10 years at KAOS FM in Olympia, WA from 1993-2003 including a one year stint as Music Director. During that entire time, I did the What's This Called? program, at times for as long as 6 hours in a single night! The show ran at KPSU in Portland, from 2005 to 2018. I've been happily at Freeform Portland since October of 2018 and loving every second at this exciting freeform station! I started the Olympia Experimental Music Festival in 1995 and have been playing music off and on in the Dead Air Fresheners since 1997. I'm thrilled to be on the air and the internet at KPSU and part of such an exciting community of creative folks.
