Tonight, Tom Service presents Rebecca Saunders' hypnotic 'A Visible Trace' and Iranian composer Anahita Abassi's 'Situation II'', performed by Frankfurt based Ensemble Modern. Composer, Deirdre McKay talks about how natural sounds compel her music in 'Sound of the Week' and there is "cinema for the ear" courtesy of Apartment House as they perform Luc Ferrari's , 'Cellule 75: Force du rythme, et cadence force.' Finally, Finghin Collins is the soloist with the Ulster Orchestra in Deirdre Gribbin's gripping and piano concerto, 'The Binding of the Years' inspired by ancient time and Deirdre's own archaeological digs and to end the show, a soundscape for 'Saturday Night Late' takes us to the streets of Portugal.
