Ambient excursions and Italian sound art

Nick Luscombe pulls a rare Japanese ambient record out of the bag. Sound art that reflects on the spirituality of the Mediterranean Sea and a 30-year-old indie classic reversioned.

Nick Luscombe pulls a rare Japanese ambient record out of the bag from the synth duo Inoyama whose 1983 album Danzindan-Pojidon was way ahead of its time. Italian sound artist and composer Alessandra Eramo presents her vocal reflections on the spirituality of the Mediterranean Sea and the American indie rock singer Anna Domino has re-recorded and reversioned her 30-year old hit single Lake.

Produced by Rebecca Gaskell.
