Fade to Black
Elizabeth Alker with more genre-exploding music, trawling raw and beautiful landscapes of sound. Tonight, Daniel Elms, Erland Cooper, Julia Holter and others.
As the weekend fades to black join Elizabeth Alker for this hour long sonic exploration.
Tonight's episode features the first ever play of music from Daniel Elms's forthcoming album Islandia, inspired by The North Sea, the post-industrial landscapes of the North of England, the people the ocean brings us and the places it takes us.
We celebrate the work of Adrian Henri with Thurston Moore and the Whitechapel Gallery, Rafiq Bhatia blends avant-garde jazz and electronic composition and we chase the drone from New York to Manchester with William Basinski.
Also in this episode, Erland Cooper transports us to the beautiful and bleak Orkneys and on a musical journey around it's sheltered bays and coves which look out over deadly sea mists. And we look forwards to a tour by American composer and multi-instrumentalist Julia Holter and back to a very special live performance of new music by Bryce Dessner.
