Putting surprising sounds together in surprising ways. A serendipitous trip through adventurous music across time and genres. Tonight’s show features a beautiful soundscape that blends electronics with environmental sounds from the German-Iranian duo Arovane + Porya Hatami. Psychedelic playful pop from London producer Paul White who ditches his prefered sampling method in favour of playing all the parts himself for his new release Rejuvenate with Zimbabwean musician and poet Shungudzo. Plus a new composition for percussion and soprano by Andrew Hamilton called To The People.

Produced by Rebecca Gaskell for Reduced Listening.
