Alternative Frequencies: 40 Years of RTRFM

Alternative Frequencies: 40 Years of RTRFM is a journey through the sometimes turbulent, often uplifting and always community-focused history of RTRFM. The exhibition celebrates the past, present and future of Western Australia’s longest running FM community radio station.

 

 

Curated by RTRFM and the State Library, the trip down memory lane features a unique collection of audio, images, stories, memorabilia and equipment that not only tells the story of RTRFM, but the story of FM radio in Western Australia.

Alternative Frequencies: 40 Years of RTRFM runs until Sunday 11 February in the Ground Floor Gallery at the State Library of Western Australia.

Entry is free.

To coincide with the exhibition we have trawled through the archives and found the below audio and videos. Take a trip back in time to a year ago or 40 years ago.

Live on RTRFM: Methyl Ethel feat: Ben Witt & Ali Flintoff

It was Pete Barr’s final week on air and he wanted some local bands to do a couple of covers. The couple of bands turned into nearly 30 and we filmed a couple.

Methyl Ethel stopped by to play “All My Friends” by LCD Soundsystem with a bit of help from Ben Witt (Mei Saraswati Band, Rabbit Island) and Ali Flintoff (Dream Rimmy).

With Jake propped up on the desk in Studio A, Methyl Ethel took the song somewhere else and gave it a very distinctive Perth feel. Peter definitely got one hell of a goodbye.

RTRFM Creative Spaces | Abdul-Rahman Abdullah | Che Dunbar

Abdul-Rahman Abdullah (b. 1977) is a West Australian artist whose practice explores the different ways that memory can inhabit and emerge from familial space. Working primarily in sculpture and installation, Abdullah draws on passages of personal history, articulating formative experiences of individual identity within the broader scope of family.

Expanding on the narrative capacity of animal archetypes, crafted objects and the human presence, his work is intended to create a physical dialogue between the natural world and the agency of culture. While his own experiences as a Muslim Australian of mixed cultural heritage provide a starting point, Abdullah negotiates shared understandings of individual identity, new mythologies and marginalised social outlooks in a multicultural context.

video

RTRFM Creative Spaces | Andy Quilty | Cooper Fox

Working primarily in drawing and painting, Andy Quilty’s work explores notions of status, belonging and sense of place within the banality of suburban Australian culture.

Quilty’s work has been selected in a number of significant exhibitions including the Adelaide Perry Drawing Prize, Rick Amor Drawing Prize, Jacaranda Acquisitive Drawing Award (JADA), Kedumba Drawing Award, Albany Art Prize, Black Swan Portrait Prize and the Salon des Refusés.

Amongst many notable literary achievements, in 2015, Joan London was named a Western Australian State Living Treasure, and was also the recipient of the Patrick White Award, for a lifetime’s ‘outstanding contribution to Australian literature’.

video

RTRFM Creative Spaces | Lachlan Skipworth | Riva-Jean Lander

The music of Australian composer Lachlan Skipworth has been described by Limelight magazine as featuring “bold, innovative textures, and compelling melody”.

His individual and highly personal compositional language is coloured by three years spent in Japan, where his immersion in the study of the shakuhachi bamboo flute inevitably became a part of his muse. He has recently been awarded the coveted Paul Lowin prize for orchestral composition for his Concerto for Clarinet and Orchestra (2014), which was premiered by the West Australian Symphony Orchestra with whom he is currently composer-in-residence.

video

RTRFM Creative Spaces Project | Andrew Christie | Tom Allen

RTRFM Creative Spaces Project | Andrew Christie with Tom Allen Andrew Christie (b. 1978) is an Australian artist whose practice explores the different ways that objects can inhabit and contribute to familial space.

Growing up as the son of a woodworker and teacher combined with his arts training has formed both his business venture, A Good Looking Man, and his arts practice. A Good Looking Man is the result of the merging of his parent’s woodworking and teaching backgrounds in to something he is passionate about: people making things.

This translates in to workshops and community lead endeavours. His artistic practice orbits around creating tools, objects and routines for life events that most people will be touched by which may not have relevant tools and processes attributed to them.

video

RTRFM Creative Spaces Project | Benjamin Witt | Taila Jackson

RTRFM Creative Spaces Project | Benjamin Witt with Taila Jackson Ben Witt is one of Perth’s most loved musicians.

An artist with complete mastery over his instrument, Ben’s work combines angular noise with harmonic beauty; syrupy melodies with otherworldly sounds.

Drawing inspiration from all corners of the globe and creating music that is unique and wonderful, Ben Witt has worked in his own bands, as a solo artist and also alongside other Australian and International artists.

video

RTRFM Creative Spaces Project | Bruno Booth | Zen Pullen

RTRFM Creative Spaces Project | Bruno Booth with Zen Pullen Bruno Booth creates large, unapologetically bold paintings using an airbrush, shaped canvas and sweat.

His latest work is evolving and uses multimedia elements and installation to explore his motivations. He is interested in computer graphics and how these can influence a persons perception of the physical and the psychological. Broader themes that drive his practice include social networks (in real life and on-line) and the unprecedented change in how we communicate and disseminate information since the rise of the Internet. He is also curious about the conspicuous absence of disabled people in popular culture.

Influenced by the work of Greg Bogin, Morgan Blair and Josh Sperling, Bruno’s electric colour schemes and irregular shaped canvasses display a friendly and welcoming exterior. His installations echo the aesthetics of Koenraad Dedobbeleer, Alex Da Corte and Blair Thurman

RTRFM Creative Spaces Project | Phil Walleystack with Geena Gill. Phil Walleystack is one of Australia’s most admired entertainers. He inherits a performance tradition that pre-dates modern arts. Raised in country Western Australia, he was taught his traditional songs, dance and how to survive in the bush by his elders.

All of his life, Phil has been on stage; in the limelight, always having to be the center of attention. At age 20, Phil followed his passion and dream to become an international artist. He moved to the city of Perth and enrolled into the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, then onto Sydney to study at the National Aboriginal Islander Skills Development Academy.

It was here that Phil was introduced to many forms of dance and music, from traditional Aboriginal songs and dance from all over Australia to modern contemporary music and dance.

RTRFM have teamed up with Fremantle story to bring you the next series of The View From Here, RTRFM’s long running video series highlighting local bands in unique and special locations.

For this series RTRFM heads to the port city to showcase the amazing spaces in and around Fremantle with some of Perth’s favourite musicians.

First up we catch Lucy Peach in the confines of the Fremantle Tourist Wheel on the Esplanade Reserve, Fremantle. Lucy and her band mates, Luke Dux (The Floors) on guitar and John Brown (Odette Mercy and The Soul Atomics) on percussion, roll through three sublime tunes as they fly around the skies over Fremantle. Lucy serenades us – Silver Tongue, Pineapple Poll and Lamb – in her very unique and incredibly humble style.

Lucy tells stories of love and loss while exuding a wonderful sense of positivity. Her music, even stripped back is expansive and encompassing in nature. The View From Here will cover a variety of genres, showcasing the wellspring of talent in Western Australia’s music scene.

The performances themselves will also take place in a variety of unique Fremantle locations, to be revealed as the series progresses.

Thanks to the City of Fremantle and Fremantle Story: Be Part of the story for their support In The View From Here.

RTRFM’s online short film series The View From Here returns, with the island rhythms of Grace Barbé at the centre of episode ten. Flanked by band members Jamie Searle, Joelle Barbé and Dan Carroll in RTRFM’s Studio A, Grace Barbé weaves through a live set that draws from the diverse cultural mélange of her native Seychelles.

Grace’s signature ‘Afro-Kreol’ style fuses tropical island rhythms with Afrobeat, Latin, rock, reggae, jazz and pop influences. An accomplished and celebrated singer/songwriter, Grace is at home on both guitar and bass, and impressively switches between singing in English, Kreol and French.

Grace won the WAM Award for Best World Act every year over the period 2009-2013, while her song ‘Fatige’ took out the WAM Song of the Year (World Category) award in 2014. Following the release of her debut album ‘Kreol Daughter’ (2009) and latest release ‘Welele!’ (2013), Grace has performed at major festivals in Mauritius, La Reunion and Seychelles, as well as Australian festivals WOMADelaide, Byron Bay Bluesfest and Woodford Folk Festival.

RTRFM’s The View From Here #12: Doctopus

RTRFM’s twelve-part series The View From Here concludes its first season with a episode of live performances from Perth’s premiere slacker rock buddies Doctopus.

Forged in the fires of North Perth and residing from their spiritual home of The Bird, Doctopus have toured Australia and the USA with good pals Pond, stumbled over the stages of Groovin’ the Moo and Camp Doogs and earned a reputation as one of the most stupidly fun live bands in Perth.

Earlier this year the rambunctious trio popped by the RTRFM studios to smash out a 25-minute set in the middle of our office, including performances of Wobbegong, A.O.E., Feel Good Hits and Social Anxiety. Doctopus are on a brief break but will be playing shows near you very soon. In the meantime, this is the next best thing to seeing them in the flesh.

The View From Here is a twelve-part short film series that launched in November 2014 with support from the Department of Culture and the Arts. The series aims to showcase the wellspring of talent in Western Australia’s music scene, across a variety of genres and locations. This episode is the last DCA-funded production of The View From Here.

RTRFM’s The View From Here #5: Gina Williams & Guy Ghouse

Filmed in the RTRFM office, on Noongar land, The View From Here episode five features celebrated indigenous acoustic duo, Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse.

In 2012, Williams and Ghouse released their debut album, Kalyakoorl (meaning ‘forever’), the first album to be released in the Noongar language. The duo’s uniquely West Australian sound made them a natural choice for inclusion in The View From Here series.

The pair performs five songs, telling stories of Gina’s land and culture with Guy’s rhythmic guitar providing the musical soundtrack. Ghouse’s delicate fingerpicking and traditional folk melodies, interwoven with Williams emotive, soaring vocals, is something to behold.

Williams and Ghouse adeptly translate feeling through their music and use of the Noongar language. Universal themes of love, loss and belonging are all wholeheartedly delivered, and felt, by the listener. It’s beautiful music that can – and regularly, does – silence a room.

Mountain deftly blend the soft and loud, the intense and the ethereal, to create expansive soundscapes. Mt. Mountain has a dusty, yet dark, sound that traverses psych, drone and stoner rock.

Comprised of fuzzed-out basslines, meandering guitars and frontman Stephen Bailey’s haunting, hypnotic vocals, Mt. Mountain are creating music that sounds like it could come straight out of the Californian desert, whilst retaining a unique quality all of their own.

RTRFM’s View From Here #11: Catlips

The wonderfully wonky dance sounds of Perth’s Catlips is the latest Western Australian artist to feature in RTRFM’s twelve-part short film series, The View From Here.

Katie Campbell is the mind behind Catlips, one third of dreamy Perth band Kucka and she joined RTRFM in the lush courtyard of Northbridge venue The Bird for The View from Here’s eleventh episode. Catlips has fast garnered both local and national acclaim with an unmistakable aesthetic in both her colourful, dense production and homemade visuals.

Said to channel everything from Four Tet to Nicolas Jaar through a neon glazed blender, it is no surprise that this intriguing artist has recently been nominated for WAM’s Most Popular New Act of 2015. Launching her latest EP Casual (released through Perth label Pilerats) in March 2015 with a raucous pool party, Catlips had the opportunity to showcase at Bigsound in September and bring her own flavour of multi-sensory house music to venues across the country.

After her set at Camp Doogs this year, Campbell returned to Perth and released a much awaited single Silver Smoke on October 15. Basslines drip through a haze of European-inspired house sounds, capturing the warm essence of our city, while maintaining her undeniable global appeal.

The View From Here is a twelve-part short film series that launched in November 2014 with support from the Department of Culture and the Arts. The series aims to showcase the wellspring of talent in Western Australia’s music scene, across a variety of genres and locations.

RTRFM’s View From Here #18: Drowning Horse

RTRFM’s award-nominated short film series The View From Here concludes its second season with Episode 18, featuring Perth’s kings of doom, Drowning Horse.

Playing on the hallowed stage of the Perth Concert Hall, the five –piece band run though a 20 minute, 2 song set that defies their location. The sheer sight of a band like Drowning Horse in a venue like this is breathtaking, pushing the decibel meter beyond that of a jumbo jet and filling the room with haze.

Drowning Horse have been rarely seen on a stage since releasing their second full-length album Sheltering Sky in 2015, but it’s easy to see here why their live show is the stuff of legend. Every note and every beat is imbued with tectonic weight.

Vocalist Kim McConchie empties his lungs with each guttural scream. Every moment is brimming with either anticipation or catharsis. The Perth Concert Hall has never been home to so much tension.

Reverb and fuzz reverberating through the tunnel and into the world of Fremantle. Rueben’s vocals soar and fall in a haze of distortion. As quickly as it starts it is over, returning the Whaling Tunnel to its once serene self, a walk way to Bathers Beach and a landmark of Fremantle.
