Robert Worby introduces music performed at Tectonics Festival Glasgow 2015, including Mariam Rezaei, Justin Broadrick, Eliane Radigue and Joanna Bailie.

The first of four programmes from this year's Tectonics Glasgow, the festival founded by conductor Ilan Volkov and presented in partnership with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. This annual event - co-curated by Volkov and Alasdair Campbell - mixes up styles and soundworlds, alternating between orchestral and chamber concerts in the Grand Hall of Glasgow's City Halls complex and the improvised, noise and electronic sets to be found in the neighbouring Old Fruitmarket. In tonight's programme we hear a collaboration between turntablist Mariam Rezaei and the Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra, a solo set by extreme metal guitarist Justin Broadrick, new instrumental pieces from electronic pioneer Eliane Radigue, and world premieres of BBC-commissioned orchestral works by Paul Newland and Joanna Bailie. Presented by Robert Worby.
