The two Ondes Martenot were played by Valerie Hartmann-Claverie and Bruno Perrault. The piece lasts over 13 minutes at this point:

In march 2005 Jonny was Featured Composer at the South Bank Centre’s cutting-edge Ether Festival, where the revised version of 'smear' was performed by the London Sinfonietta at the Royal Festival Hall on march 27th and 28th 2005.

'Piano For Children' was commissioned for John Constable and the London Sinfonietta and first premiered at the Ether Festival on march 27th and 28th 2005. The performance from march 27th was aired on the BBC:
'Piano For Children'是JG受John Constable和伦敦Sinfonietta乐队创作的,在05年3月27日和28日首次在Ether音乐节上被演奏,当时BBC直播了这场演出。
Popcorn Superhet Receiver
In may 2004 Jonny was appointed Composer-in-Residence for the BBC Concert Orchestra.
04年5月,BBC特邀Jonny为BBC的音乐会创作一首曲子
'Popcorn Superhet Receiver' was comissioned by BBC Radio 3 and premiered on april 23rd 2005 at LSO St Luke's, with the BBC Concert Orchestra and Robert Ziegler. The piece was inspired by radio static and the extended, dissonant chords of Polish composer Penderecki’s 'Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima'. A recording of the premiere performance, which lasts over 19 minutes, was aired on the BBC Radio 3 programme ‘Mixing it’ on june 24th 2005:
'Popcorn Superhet Receiver'是Jonny受BBC Radio3委托制作,05年4月23日,在LSO St Luke
Jonny,Robert Ziegler,BBC管弦乐团演奏了这首曲子。电波的静电噪音给了jonny创作这首曲子的灵感,当中不和谐的和弦是了波兰先锋作曲家Penderecki的作品“广岛受难者挽歌”的采样。BBC Radio3的Mixing it节目在05年24日播出了 这首19分钟曲子的录音
On september 30th 2005 Radiohead posted a picture of a session blackboard on Dead Air Space. The photo shows a list of songs and ideas the band had been working on during the two weeks of rehearsals from september 19th to 30th. On the lower right hand side Thom wrote 'PSR - Jonny loops - BBC'. Apparently they considered using samples from a recording of 'Popcorn Superhet Receiver' in one way or another:
05年9月30日,Radiohead在Dead Air Space上面贴了一张会议的黑板的图在Dead Air Space上面,这张照片上面有一张歌曲的列表和一些想法,这些都是乐队在9月19日到30日的排练中获得的,在左边的偏下的地方Thom写了“'PSR - Jonny loops – BBC”几个字,很显然他们打算采样一些“Popcorn Superhet Receiver”中的片断做为素材。
'Popcorn Superhet Receiver' won the BBC Radio 3 Listeners' Award at the 2006 British Composer Awards, presented by the British Academy of Composers and Songwriters in association with Radio 3. The event was held at the Hayward Gallery in London on november 24th 2006. The listeners of Radio 3 chose 'Popcorn Superhet Receiver' from nine BBC orchestral commissions, premiered between 1st April 2005 and 31st March 2006.
In connection with the Awards there was also a concert at Queen Elizabeth Hall in London, where 'Popcorn Superhet Receiver' was performed in Jonny's presence by the BBC Concert orchestra, conducted by Robert Ziegler. By this point, probaby for this occasion, the piece had been reworked slightly, now being 3 minutes shorter than the premiere performance. It was broadcast on the BBC Radio 3 programme 'Performance on 3' on november 27th 2006:
在2006年的英国作曲家大奖中,Jonny凭借'Popcorn Superhet Receiver'获得了听众奖,
这个奖项由英国词曲作家协会和BBC Radio3 联合创办。颁奖典礼于06年11月26日在Hayward Gallery举行,Radio 3的听众们从9首BBC管弦乐团委托制作的曲子中选出了Popcorn Superhet Receiver。
在Queen Elizabeth大厅举办的音乐会上,BB管弦乐团在Robert Ziegler的指挥下演奏了这首曲目,也许是特别为了这次演出,这次的版本又被重新修改过了,比原来短了3分钟。这场演出于06年11月27日在BBC radio3中播出。

作为奖项的一部分,Jonny接受了10000英镑做为经费谱写一首新的管弦作品。

Radiohead to tour next year 收音机头明年开始巡演



Radiohead to tour next year

Radiohead are to play live dates next year,beginning in May, their management has revealed.

Speaking to Billboard, Radiohead's manager Bryce Edge revealed that the band plan to begin touring in May and then play live intermittently until the end of 2008.

We plan to tour next year," he said. "Starting in May through to probably the end of the year, with lots of holidays in that period.

At the moment we are talking with our agents in North America and for the rest of the world, trying to get a schedule which works for the band and works financially."

Edge went on to reveal that Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke isn't overly keen on the prospect of the tour.

He likes to do shows, but the whole business of schlepping round the world is not top of his favourite things to do," he said. "It's the process of how to do that which is the pain in the neck. They're not road dogs. They never have been."

RH的经纪人日前透露说:RH 将在明年五月开始巡演.

RH的经纪人Bryce Edge近日在Billboard的一次采访中透露,RH计划明年五月开始巡演直到2008年底

我们计划明年巡演”他说 “巡演将从从五月开始一直到2008年底,中间会有一些休息的时间”

我们正在和我们的位于北美的机构商量,尽力制定出一份既合适于乐队同时在收益上也合理的日程安排”

他还透露说Thom Yorke对这次巡演并没有过分期待. “他喜欢演出,但是对于这样商业的全球巡演并不是他最感兴趣的事情”Edge说 “现在最大的麻烦就是如何圆满完成这次巡演.他们并不是那种一直都在路上的乐队,他们从来没有这么巡演过”

Babyshambles 放出了他们新的单曲封面

Babyshambles 放出了他们新的单曲封面

Babyshambles 放出了他们即将发行的单曲Delivery的封面设计

封套上的人物是著名诗人Thomas Chatterton,是由Henry Wallis绘制的,但事实上真正出现在画中的是一张Hannah Bays的作品,Hannah Bays同时也是Dirty Pretty Things的封套设计师

Chatterton是Pete Doherty的创作的灵感来源.

在18世纪中期,Chatterton写诗和散文,为了避免年龄歧视,他用假名发表这些作品.他在1770年自杀,年仅17岁

Doherty在狱中的日记中为这副画勾勒了线条,当时他因闯入了前浪子的队友Carl家中并实施偷窃而入狱13天.
