The world’s strangest Proms after party

Enter a psychedelic dream sequence from an imaginary Last Night of the Proms after party in this very special edition of Hear And Now, devised and composed by Neil Luck.

Enter a psychedelic dream sequence from an imaginary Last Night of the Proms after party, where fuzzy memories of festivals past and future rub up against each other, creating a sense of bewilderment, excitement and constant surprise.

Orderly Mouthpiece Spent is a special edition of Hear And Now devised and composed by Neil Luck and members of ARCO and the Squib Box collective, who have established a reputation for cutting-edge concert events combining elements of physical theatre, avant-garde virtuoso musical performance and sound art.

Get ready for a combination of radiophonic treatments, newly composed chamber works and classic radio tropes, all filtered through the zany and surreal imagination of Neil Luck and his ensemble – as presenter Tom Service attempts to keep track of the proceedings.
