Where the botanical meets the musically experimental, with Max Reinhardt.
Featured among the blooming wonderful specimens: hip hop star Kojey Radical soundtracks the horticultural neural networks of visual artist Hito Steyerl; composer-improviser Lars Gaugaard leads the listener on a sensory journey; Earthen Sea’s new album ‘Grass And Trees’ yields a fantastic crop of reductionist rhythmic music; Lisa Knapp sings atmospheric folk; Laura Cannell teases minimalist chamber sounds out of the land and sky; recorder player Genevieve Lacey combines with the environment to create a ‘listening garden’; and the tired Earth creaks in a durational opera for the Anthropocene by Rugilė Barzdžiukaitė, Vaiva Grainytė and Lina Lapelytė.
Plus recorded highlights from Lubomyr Melnyk’s set at the boutique festival Sea Change, and a classic track by keen gardener Cosey Fanni Tutti, ahead of the mixtape that she has cultivated for tomorrow night’s programme.
