Put Use When Can : It is a cold and rainy December evening in Paris and we’re sitting in the studio at Radio Campus, just round the corner from the Place des Vosges.The French radio artist Julia Drouhin is over from Tasmania. We have just finished recording our monthly F-Air Play session, where the artist and composer Ocean Viva Silver set us some sticky questions and we replied as best we could with a selection of field recordings, a thumb piano, voices, a small record player and a melodica. We have 45 minutes left in the studio before the next programme, so we decide to leave the microphones open and to play along to the creaks and squeaks of the studio chair and the friendly buzz of the mixing desk. Never waste a good opportunity we say to ourselves, Put.Use.When.Can.
