Linda Catlin Smith

Stuart features Canadian composer Linda Catlin Smith, John Cage's early piano music, new music from Richard Dawson and a previously unreleased live performance by Alice Coltrane.

Stuart Maconie travels to the furthest flung corners of left-field music to create a playlist that makes you rock back on your heels with the sounds of newness and difference. Added into the Freak Zone's Essential Collection this week is an album of John Cage's hauntingly beautiful piano music from the 1940s performed by Stephen Drury called In A Landscape. There's also a chat with the Canadian composer Linda Catlin Smith ahead of her appearance at Tectonics Festival in Glasgow plus new music from Richard Dawson and a previously unreleased Alice Coltrane live performance.
