Lost voices, found in song
Musical responses to the criminal justice system with Verity Sharp who explores the Distant Voices songwriting project in Scotland.
Verity plays music from two creative responses to the prison system: Distant Voices is a collaborative project between songwriters and people who have experienced Scotland’s Criminal Justice System, and DIRT by Burning Salt (aka Hannah Hull) is inspired by the woman and staff of London’s Holloway Prison.
Elsewhere on the programme landscape and nature inspire, with coastal music from Ellen Fullman and David Gamper, a new perspective on the pastoral courtesy of A Year in The Country, and Apostolos Loufopoulos’ electroacoustic piece depicting a metaphorical journey on the back of a bee.
Produced by Freya Hellier.
A Reduced Listening production for BBC Radio 3.
