004: Belly Full of Stars

Welcome to Episode 4 of Radio Resistance: Tennessee Experimental! Our special guest this hour is Kim Rueger aka Belly Full of Stars. As Belly Full of Stars, Kim often blends FM synths and granular vocals with sundry field recordings and modular processes, improvising textured compositions that veer ambient, with hints of glitch. In this hour, you’ll hear Kim’s philosophy on improvisation and music meditation, as well her thoughts on the challenges and opportunities of making experimental music in Nashville. The episode closes with a sneak preview of new unreleased material by Belly Full of Stars.

Plus music by Belly Full of Stars’ creative influences: Caterina Barbieri, Rosenau & Sanborn, Low, Meg Mulhearn, Low
