The Late Junction Mixtape with Ilan Volkov

A Late Junction mixtape from critically acclaimed conductor, curator and improviser Ilan Volkov.

In a special guest week, Late Junction is taken over by three friends of the programme, with fresh musical perspectives.

Tonight's mixtape comes from Ilan Volkov, critically acclaimed conductor, improviser and festival curator. Volkov has been Principal Conductor of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and the Iceland Symphony Orchestra. A frequent guest conductor with orchestras around the world, he is highly influential in the new music scene, having premiered many contemporary orchestral works. He also works regularly with leading ensembles in modern music such as Ensemble Modern and Ensemble Musikfabrik. The annual Tectonics Festival he founded in Reykjavik and which continues in Glasgow reflects his devotion to contemporary music, including improvisation, electronics and hip-hop alongside classical works.

Expect to hear tracks from jazz percussionist and composer Masahiko Togashi, and performance artist and tape music composer Annea Lockwood.

Produced by Katie Callin for Reduced Listening.
