Sad to see the very brilliant Kim Hill retire from the Sat show,
Delighted I got to hear her for 4 years.

In 2020 I bought an Arturia Fuse Studio interface.
Loved it, but had a few ideas of how it could be expanded.
Contacted Arturia with a few thoughts, and they listened
To be able to contribute to something like The AudioFuse 16 RIG feels really pretty bloody WILD!
On 14 October, Australia will vote in a historic referendum that cuts to the core of how it sees itself as a nation.
If successful, the proposal – known as the Voice – will recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the constitution, while creating a body for them to advise governments on the issues affecting their communities.
Yes advocates say it’s a “modest yet profound” change that will allow Indigenous Australians to take “a rightful place” in their own country – which has often dragged its heels confronting its past.
But those campaigning against it describe it as a “radical” proposal that will “permanently divide” the country by giving First Nations people greater rights than other Australians – a claim legal experts reject.
“Too many of us have grown up as strangers,” leading Voice advocate Noel Pearson told the Canberra Press Gallery last week.
“This referendum is the largest mirror we will ever look into as a nation… we, the Australian people, face a choice – a choice between crossing the bridge to our future or floundering in the past.” : Noel Pearson
Sickeningly it currently looks like failing.
This referendum has made utterly transparent 2 things:
1: How casually Deeply Racist so much of Aust is.
2: How much control over the population the hard right media has.
The aust ‘Voice to Parliament’ vote in Aust (where the predominantly white australian population vote on giving the indigenous population who have lived in australia for around 60,000 years <yes 60,000> an official voice to the govt.
It looks like it will fail because racism in aust is rife, (FARK) …. is on the same day as the election here in NZ where a smug hard right racist pentecostal who’s entire agenda is to gut all social services to provide a a $20 tax break to the general population, but a really large tax break to the weathly, who has a massive advertising budget and looks like winning.
My head is fucking exploding.
2 sickening likely outcomes on the same day.
… spoke eloquently about a lot of things, including at an awards show about that ‘accused sexual predator’ narcissist, and and wrote some great songs.
This one seems topical … still.
The Original Clip is great too!
This is an extract of his work Firing Squad I first witnessed as a live performance at the Nemo Festival in Paris 2011. I found it astoundingly powerful and really inspiring at the time. I highly recommend having a dive into his work!
Longer cut if its of interest.
