Go: Organic Orchestra is a 21st century vision of a kind of future orchestra: it is an original orchestral concept of world music improvisation started by Adam Rudolph in 2001. Since then he has taught and improvisationally conducted hundreds of musicians in both Europe and the United States, The music is composed as thematic material that provides a spontaneous orchestral context and inspiration for improvisational dialogue. The multicultural dynamic of Go: Organic Orchestra expresses a creative vision of a world without boundaries: of culture as the vessel for human understanding, empathy and sharing.

Celebrating 20years of Spaceways Radio with Carlos Niño!

One of my earliest memories of Carlos Niño has to do specifically with Spaceways radio. It was about 7 years ago. I was working on an event with ArtDontSleep, running around from backstage, to stage, to ticket booth and back… regular event stuff. I held on to a question a close friend of mine had for him all night about a song he played on his show at least 5years prior.  I believe Carlos hosted this event or was DJing it or maybe perhaps he connected us with a particular musician, I don’t recall the specifics but the point is, he stuck around til the end of the night allowing me to ask him about this particular song. I doubted anyone would remember with the small amount of details my friend left me with but sure enough by the time we wrapped up the night and I drove home the song I asked about was in my inbox. I was shocked and incredibly thankful. I’m blessed to say that moments like these are not rare with Carlos Niño. Always connecting folks, building, guiding, continuously offering a wealth of information and inspiration.

It’s a true honor to pass my Sundays 10:00pm – Midnight Pacific time slot on to one of the greatest DJs of all time: J.ROCC! Please tune in to KPFK on Sunday, March 29th for the premier of his new program.

………………………………….

Carlos’ RADIO History:

“I started my first radio show, All At One Point*, on KPFK 90.7FM, Los Angeles in October 1995, after volunteering at the station as a student reporter and producer from Summer 1994*. All At One Point was focused on “Hip-Hop, Soul, Jazz, and World Rhythms.” While hosting the show on Wednesdays from 8:00pm – 10:00pm Pacific, I showcased some of my favorite contemporary artists and featured live in studio performances and interviews with a wide variety of legends, up and coming musicians, bands, and DJs.

DJ Organic, Hymnl and Jon Liu all co-hosted the show with me at different
times from 1995 – 1999. In October of 1999, after a 6 month hiatus, (following
the birth of my son Azul,) I returned to KPFK with a new sound and vision:
Spaceways Radio. On this program I explore(d) Psychedelic, Electronic,
Folk, New Age, and World Musics, and create(d) specials dedicated to
individual artists and bands, phases of the Zodiac, and years past.

Spaceways Radio air times:
Sundays 10:00pm – Midnight 1999 – 2003
Fridays 8:00pm – 10:00pm 2004 – 2010
Sundays 10:00pm – Midnight 2010 – 2015

I was the interim Host and DJ of other music programs on KPFK at the same
time that All At One Point and Spaceways aired. I’m a founding DJ of the internet radio station Dublab where many of my Spaceways Radio Archives are available. I was a monthly contributor to David Lynch Radio, and Scion Radio, and have made several special mixes for various BBC shows and channels, Red Bull Music Academy Radio, and other stations in Europe and Japan.

………………………………….

All At One Point* Named after Italo Calvino’s short story from Cosmicomics.

………………………………….

Summer 1994* Being a huge fan of KLON’s Jazz Programming, KXLU’s
Mike Nardone, Rob One’s Fly ID Show on KCSN, and KCRW’s Michael
Mixin Moore I was deeply inspired to get into radio. I listened to all the radio
I could, and was an avid record and cassette buyer. My first attempt to get into
radio was when I turned 16 in 1993, got my driver’s license and drove my Mom’s car to answer phones at KCRW. I did some introductory production assistance there too. Playlist entry, ticket give-away phone operator . . . I picked up food for the fund drive, etc.. While at the station I came across one of the coolest things ever – a folded card-stock printed guide to every public radio station in the United States, with dial numbers, call letters and cities. Being that I lived in Canoga Park, when I saw KPFK in North Hollywood on the list, I decided to check it out. I was always focused on being a Music Programmer, but got to do a few other little odd jobs in radio first . . .

………………………………….

Note: This was 100% my decision. KPFK has supported me hugely over the years! They haven’t interfered with my program at all – I’ve been free to play what I was inspired to, to interview and host whoever I wanted, and be myself! I was met with appreciation, enthusiasm and encouragement about my plans for leaving, and choosing the great DJ that will be taking over the time slot I’ve had. Please continue to support KPFK! Thank you!”

-Carlos Nino
