Along the River session

Max Reinhardt presents a collaboration session featuring Kelly Jayne Jones, Sam McLoughlin and Cucina Povera, based on graphic scores of rivers.

As Radio 3’s Along the River week continues, Late Junction brings experimental musicians together at the BBC’s Maida Vale studios, to improvise around graphic scores of British rivers.

Kelly Jayne Jones is a Manchester-based artist incorporating music and sound alongside performance art. She has an interest in geology and brings rocks with her into the studio to use as a sound source. Fellow North-wester and songwriter Sam McCloughlin’s interest in water is long-standing: he co-created a 2012 album on the Folklore Tapes label, devoted to rivers and bodies of water in Devon. He adopts a DIY, cut-and-paste aesthetic and plays homemade instruments including a river-powered harp. And Maria Rossi is a Finnish electronic and vocal artist based in Glasgow. Her use of found sounds explains her stage name Cucina Povera, a reference to the Italian style of cooking that makes use of whatever ingredients are available.

Produced by Chris Elcombe.
