Susan Hitch presents a programme recorded in front of an audience at the FACT arts centre in Liverpool as part of the 2008 Radio 3 Free Thinking festival of ideas. KLF musician and conceptual artist Bill Drummond explains how his life story informs his new thesis on the future of music.

His latest project, called 17, combines music, art and polemic and involves him travelling up and down the country, assembling choirs choirs composed of 17 members. They perform a work, which is then destroyed in order to illustrate Drummond's theory that recorded music is dead, and that the future lies in the live musical event.
