Bjork collaborator Manu Delago takes 7 musicians on a hike in the Alps to capture everything that is breathtakingly beautiful and unforgiving about that landscape.
As the weekend fades to a whisper Elizabeth Alker has more hushed and soothing sounds to see it out. We'll head to Kentucky where the Appalachian folk and post rock heritage inspires a rootsy and ambient sound in the music of JR Bohannon. There'll beats made by JLin for the Royal Ballet and a spacious and moving tribute to the workers of the pearl river factories in Hong Kong by David Fennessy.
Bjork collaborator Manu Delago takes 7 musicians on a hike in the Alps to capture everything that is breathtakingly beautiful and unforgiving about that landscape, Alex Mills adds reverb and processing to Liam Byrne's Viola da Gamba and Tim Hecker sculpts new sounds out of wood, wind, strings and mist.
We also look back to a blissful and immersive live show from Rakhi Singh and Vessel and find out what happens when Andre de Ridder's Stargaze ensemble teams up with Minneapolis synth pop band Polica.
