Circuit-bent radio for people who like art

Nick Luscombe with a playlist that exists within the intersection of music, sound, and art. Featured artists include Tania Caroline Chen, Jacob Samuel, and Holly Herndon.

Nick Luscombe is in the presenting seat with a playlist that exists within the intersection of music, sound, and art.

Featured artists tonight include: Tania Caroline Chen, who specialises in improvising on piano and gadgets, showcasing her circuit-bent radio; Jacob Samuel, turning prosaic recorded conversations into performance art; Holly Herndon, operating at the nexus of technological evolution, with her new album that is a collaboration with her own ‘A.I. baby’; and composer Andrew Hamilton, setting text from abstract painter Ad Reinhardt to create ‘music for people who like art’.

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