To Alaska and the Arctic Tundra, on the wind

Get set for some long-haul musical travel with intrepid itinerant Nick Luscombe. Experience Alaska and the Arctic Tundra thanks to NSDOS’ recordings and Derek Charke’s composition.

Get set for some long-haul musical travel with intrepid itinerant Nick Luscombe tonight.

Join multidisciplinary artist NSDOS on an Alaskan expedition, where he uses ‘bio-feedback’ to turn data into extraordinary textures and rhythms.

And, experience the environmental sounds of the Arctic Tundra through the responsive composition of Derek Charke and the evocative playing of the Kronos Quartet.

What means of transport will we use for our journey? Why, the wind of course! Eisuke Yanagisawa channels the airwaves and the weather for his unprocessed field recordings made outdoors in Japan.

Produced by Jack Howson for Reduced Listening.
