Felix Kubin: Rumours From The Eastern Underground

The first episode of Parasol Elektroniczny: Rumours From The Eastern Underground has been published on the podcast site Radio Web MACBA (RWM), run by Barcelona's museum of contemporary art. Curated by Felix Kubin, this is the first instalment of a six part series that explores sound art and experimental music in Eastern Europe. The first podcast is based on interviews and sounds from the underground scene in Estonia.

Following episodes (which will be published throughout 2011) will visit Hungary, Czech Republic/Slovakia, Slovenia, and Serbia/Croatia, focusing not only on the music, but also on the cultural politics, economy and survival tactics important to the artists in each country.
