Adornorama Hörspiel / ‘What’s Love Got To Do With It?’ pt. III
09/02/2021 20:00 – 23:00
For Episode 38,
Adornorama Hörspiel, presented by Derek Baron and John Andrew Wilhite-Hannisdal, is occasioned by the latest release by art-music fraudsters Cop Tears: “Theodor Adorno: Piano Works”.
Adornorama Hörseil features contributions by Kylie Gilchrist, Cooper Francis, Natalie Price-Hafslund and Mimi Howard.
Derek and John Andrew, members of CT, lead us through a number of topics including Adorno’s childhood, his relationship with Walter Benjamin (and the role Adorno’s music played in their falling out), and the complicated relationship between Adorno’s own music and writings on music and art in general. These discussions also touch on larger themes such as art’s complicity with political and financial institutions, artists’ indulgence in the mystification of their own works, and why it’s important to hang out in bars. Cop Tears will also talk a bit about their band. The program also features contributions from CT members Cameron Kapoor and John Welsh.
“Theodore Adorno: Piano Works” is out now on Reading Group records:

We also present the final episode of Beatrice Gibson’s series What’s Love Got To Do With It? featuring Ariana Reines and Sophie Robinson.
What’s Love Got To Do With It? is programmed and curated by Beatrice Gibson, produced by Alannah Chance, and features unique compositions by Crystabel Riley and Seymour Wright.
It is a commission by Bergen Kunsthall; Camden Art Centre, London; KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin; and Mercer Union, a centre for contemporary art, Toronto.
What’s Love Got To Do With It? is a three-part podcast series about Radical Love. The final episode of this podcast series is a conversation between two friends: Ariana Reines and Sophie Robinson, poets and educators who look to spaces of hospitality for connection and kinship. Sharing their poetry and the experiences that shaped its writing, the pair discuss possibilities for care despite institutional cruelty, getting sober as an act of radical love, and how the Sun and Moon communicate very different and sometimes uncomfortable truths to Reines and Robinson respectively.
