Ivan Hewett is joined by composer-performers Kerry Andrew and Neil Luck to explore some recent recordings of contemporary music. Amongst their choices, violin music from Bryn Harrison and Problem Radicals, an opera by Travis Just in which musical and theatrical elements are in constant flux with a score of fuzzed out noise, rock, drones, microtonal tunings, free jazz, hardcore, and field recordings.
