THE LAST SESSION RADIO

About The Session

“The Session manufactures theme-zines in the finest DIY spirit, serving serious readers through a distribution network consisting of dealers. (…) The Session will favourize, focus and execute. It will continue to be committed and maintain a strong balance sheet with an anarchistic yet anal leadership.”

The Session takes place for one day every second month, during which works around a specific theme are being made. The group uses different methods and media, from drawing to research to songwriting. There are as few rules as possible in order to keep things open and uncomplicated. Setting borders creates a frame, The Session chose to remain frame-less and as diverse as the group it consists of. The members of the group are taking turns in deciding the theme to work with, members can invite other people to join a session. The one deciding for the theme is the publisher of the issue and responsible for editing, design and (re-)production. This means that every issue will look different, that every issue will be compiled with a different approach and produced in a different way, testing out formats and techniques. The Session is a flexible container for any kind of content, trusting in the spontaneous quality of its Sunday-afternoon outburst. The Session works proto-democratic which means that who comes late still gets a coffee. The Session is nervous because it just quit smoking.
