I'm so sad! I hope Joe Halder develops another venue for the minimalist and avante guard music he filled The Falling Room with. The Falling Room introduced me to many artists. I found his perceptions often so brilliant, and his taste in music echoed my own. Far out, funky, strange, moving, so many ways of describing it, and then the spoken word/acoustic artists, wow, his show was an example of transgenre music!
I deeply appreciate his support of my poetry and music productions, and wish him the best in all his endeavours.
Here is a show, Female Acoustic Artists, from The Falling Room:
From Joe (on March 25, 2012):
I wish to inform you that The Falling Room has come to an end and will no longer be broadcasting from CFBU 103.7FM.
It is time to say goodbye and to move on to different projects and other ideas.
Unfortunately, with the onset of new projects and other opportunities I no longer have the time to devote to the program.
My intention was to finish the currently 12 programs I have in pre-production and end The Falling Room in June 2012, but sadly I do not have the time to finish those programs and produce them for broadcast.
During its existence The Falling Room broadcast 113 shows and introduced over 140 independent artists to the acoustic art community.
You need to know that your art, has been heard in China, Poland, France, USA, Italy, England, Ireland, Russia, Finland and Australia via the internet download site and the distribution of copies of the show over the last 2 years.
I am extremely grateful to the artists who have supported the show and so readily have allowed me to broadcast their material to the community.
I wish you all the best in your endeavors; you are a very talented group of people.
My special thanks to those artists who demonstrated consistent support for the program over the last 2 years, they are;
Cometa (Angelo Secondini)
Dr. Memory (Marlon Kempman)
As to the future? I am not sure. I am sure that my passion for your music and art remains strong to give up on it completely. (another program, in 6 months via the internet titled “The Labyrinth”?) who knows, what I do know is that now, its time for a rest and other things.
Again, much thanks and best wishes to all.
Joe (aka Halder)
