A Different Nature: Focus on Arno Peeters

September 27, 2011
Air date:


This week on A Different Nature. a show I also cohost (with rotating DJs) on KBOO Community Radio, I featured Dutch Ambient and Soundscape artist Arno Peeters.

Arno started tape music in the early ’80’s and evolved to electronic music. First as the EBM-duo Voltage Control (2 EP’s and one CD-album on Antler) and later as one of the first techno-artists in The Netherlands with some EP’s on Djax-Up-Beats, as part of Random XS and Urban Electro and solo as Spasms. He turned away from techno to more experiMental stuff on his album ‘Fuzzy Logic’ and migrated to the German Mille Plateaux-label which released the award-winning AeroSon and two tracks on compilations. Nowadays he composes in 5.1 surround and makes a living with producing a weekly radioshow on electronic music (Folio on Dutch National Radio 6) and (as the one-man company Tape TV Productions) editing, mixing and mastering all kinds of projects from the no-budget fine art to the high profile and the cutting edge.”
