8k14 Stumm – A Case of Instrumentals

Originally broadcast Sunday 2nd October 2016 on 8K Radio (www.8k.nz) “8k14 Stumm – A Case of Instrumentals” features voiceless works by Eno, Bowie, Felt, Howie B, Michael Nyman, Morricone, John Barry, Die Zorros, Durutti Column, Mantarays (NZ), Syd Dale, DJ Food and more.. a good third of the tunes hail from soundtracks, the remainder from many and varied genres and eras.. one thing that struck me as I played through contenders was how often what I’ve considered “instrumental” turned out to contain human voice to some degree … what the ear hears always then has to contend with the brain .. cheers ears, Skew
