Nick Luscombe hosts with a mixtape from the Portland-based electronic duo Visible Cloaks. Spencer Doran and Ryan Carlisle a.k.a. Visible Cloaks often use bell tones and ambient synth pads in their music, evoking a strange hinterland between traditional and electronic Japanese music with an exploratory production style. Fact magazine described their sound as a ‘soundtrack to a virtual reality Zen garden’. They take on the challenge of curating a Late Junction mixtape, handcrafting 30 minutes of music that has influenced and inspired their work.
Also in the programme, music from the Lithuanian composer Aiste Noreikaite’s helmet, which reads your thoughts to create an unexpected soundscape, Icelandic jazz from the Mikael Mani Trio and modern British acoustic music from Cunning Folk.
