Nick Luscombe

Nick Luscombe explores vocal experimentation ahead of a 50th anniversary performance of Stockhausen's landmark piece Stimmung, plus trap-fused electronics and a post-punk reissue.

Open wide for a dose of vocal experimentation. Ahead of a 50th anniversary performance of Stockhausen's landmark piece Stimmung, Nick will be playing a few tracks that have put the vocal cords to new or unusual uses, from castrato plainchant to political recitations on helium.

Plus vintage Japanese jazz and, to mark the centenary of Gustav Klimt's death, Ugandan lyre music - all will become clear!

Produced by Chris Elcombe for Reduced Listening.
