No View, The Radio XXV
Protection from City Planning
Wendy Eisenberg


Wendy Eisenberg is a guitarist splitting their incredible technical capabilities and imagination between two worlds, that of free jazz and improvisation, and their meticulously written singer/songwriter experimental pop. Although these two fields are distinct paths they spend equal energy working within, the two influence one another. On the one hand their latest solo album 'Dehiscence' consists of gentle pop songs with incredibly creative guitar playing. On the other, on their previous release 'Its Shape Is Your Touch' consisting of improvised avant garde guitar pieces, their need for melody is clearly apparent.

About the piece 'Protection from City Planning', made for this occasion, Eisenberg said: ‘it's a super spacious piece I improvised as a reflection on the ways my ear separates and reverberates different sounds as I move through an increasingly vacant city. The video is concerned with representing settlement patterns and the uses of land, which has a particular resonance now as the global pandemic has increasingly complicated people's relationships to public space and to each other.’

Music: Wendy Eisenberg & Video: Sarah Kontos


About the series: No View, The Radio
The arts are taking a break. Theaters, museums, concert halls and galleries are closed. To a large extent, the art that is so desperately needed right now is inaccessible. Imagine being quarantined at home without films, without books, without music. Though we may not access the art, we can still think about it. The enforced rupture of this isolation can also be an opportune moment to reflect on and from, the arts. Every Friday for the upcoming weeks we will showcase original musical works by different artists, selected by Alex Andropoulos.
