Verity Sharp with Ed Atkins' Mixtape

Acclaimed video artist Ed Atkins is the latest compiler of the Late Junction mixtape. Plus contrasting music from Ariel Pink, White Goblin, and the man in black, Johnny Cash.

Ed Atkins is the latest compiler of the Late Junction mixtape. He has 30 minutes to make his musical mark on the programme.

Described as "one of the great artists of our time" by the Swiss curator Hans-Ulrich Obrist, Atkins works with high definition video, CGI, facial recognition software, and poetical text. He plays with notions of the moving image, literature, and anxiety in the digital age.

Music plays a vital role in Atkins' practice, often becoming a key element of his work. He has said, "I never was that interested in art, really. Literature, cinema and music definitely - if there was ever a hierarchy, art would be right at the bottom for me."

Elsewhere, Verity chooses music to coexist, collide, and correlate with Atkins' mix. Featured artists include Ariel Pink and White Goblin.

Produced by Jack Howson for Reduced Listening.
