Pop: The History Makers with Steve Blame

Season 3 - Electronic Cities with Dr. Sebastien Darchen

Why have certain cities around the world developed as Electronic Cities?

This is the question that a new book, Electronic Cities aims to answer. ⁠ ⁠ ⁠This week on POP; The History Makers, I'll be looking at certain European Electronic Cities with one of the book's editors, Sébastien Darchen, who holds a Ph.D. in Urban Studies.⁠

⁠Electronic Cities looks at the connection between the music and planning policies and the development of the urban electronic scenes in specific cities around the world. ⁠ ⁠ ⁠Other editors include Damien Charrieras, an Associate Professor at the School of Creative Media (City University of Hong Kong), and John Willsteed, an academic who was a former member of the Australian band - The Go-Betweens⁠. ⁠

Contributions are from a combination of urban scholars and musicians - I'll just mention a few of the musicians - Rudi Esch, former bass player with Die Krupps. Erik Stein, musician, and writer, and Berlin-based musician, and record producer Mark Reeder. ⁠

This week on POP; The History Makers - these historic Electronic Music Scenes in Europe. ⁠ ⁠ ⁠

Monday; Electronic Cities - Podcast Interview with Sébastien Darchen.⁠ ⁠ ⁠

And the rest of the week these are the interviews of artists that represent these cities:

Tuesday; Sheffield - Podcast interview with Martyn Ware.⁠ ⁠

Wednesday; Berlin - Podcast interview with Mark Reeder.⁠ ⁠

Thursday; Berlin - Podcast interview with Westbam.⁠ ⁠ ⁠

Friday; Düsseldorf - Podcast interview with Wolfang Flür.⁠ ⁠

Mark Reeder will be interviewed on the 13th of august, the Anniversary of the building of the Berlin wall) at the STASI museum - see link below.
