Roger Robinson, Ben Vince and Mark Sanders collaboration session

A varied late-night selection of music. A first encounter for three musicians from different corners of British experimental music in session at the BBC's Maida Vale studios.

The first encounter of three musicians from different corners of British experimental music, in session at the BBC's Maida Vale studios.

Acclaimed dub poet and musician Roger Robinson describes himself as a 'British resident with a Trini sensibility'. His 2017 release 'Dog Heart City' was a firm Late Junction favourite, presenting tales of survival, division and widening inequality in London. Ben Vince - hailed as 'your new favourite avant-garde saxophonist' - comes from the southeast quarter of the capital. He has collaborated with the likes of Mica Levi and Housewives, looping arpeggios and riffs into dense layers. Drummer Mark Sanders has long been one of the UK's blue ribbon improvisers, noted among other things for his ability to move between free and hard-swinging rhythms.

Max's selections include Reverend Smith and Family - voices of Mississippi captured by folklorist William Ferris. And there's music for piano - Harold Budd feels he's been kidnapped by the ambient movement, preferring to describe his music as 'soft-pedal'; John Cage's prepared piano is, in his words, more of an 'exploded keyboard' - or two in the case of his 1944 work 'Book of Music'.

Produced by Chris Elcombe for Reduced Listening.
