Anatomical experimental: Max Reinhardt's Music Of Body

Songs and pieces that resonate with, or respond and relate to, the human body. Tonight’s anatomical artists include Rian Treanor and Esperanza Spalding.

Prick up your ears, loosen those hips, move your feet, open up your mind. Tonight Max Reinhardt has an excellent selection of songs and pieces that resonate with, or respond and relate to, the human body.

American singer-bassist Esperanza Spalding wants to connect you more closely to individual body parts through her contemporary pop songs; Rotherham raver Rian Treanor explores the loss of control of bodily movements with new album ATAXIA; Bristol’s avant-garde ambient music-maker Sam Kidel deconstructs the individuality of the human voice box, and the competency of voice recognition software; and, finally, cult music and performance art collective Throbbing Gristle fill up your adrenal glands.

Produced by Jack Howson.
A Reduced Listening production for BBC Radio 3.
