In his final show as guest editor, Stewart Lee presents a mixtape from recorder player and violinist Laura Cannell.

Cannell’s work explores the territory between composed and improvised music, drawing on medieval and early music while rooted in contemporary techniques and approaches. Her mixtape spans Thomas Tallis, Breton bagpipes, violinist Galya Bisengalieva and improvising saxophonist Colin Stetson.

She joins Stewart in the studio, and he shares some final cuts from his own collection too.

Produced by Chris Elcombe for Reduced Listening.
