Other Night

Music of dreams and nocturnal restlessness with Verity Sharp, including Iranian ambient and psych-cumbia.

Music of dreams and nocturnal restlessness with Verity Sharp.

Iranian composer/producer Siavash Amini explores the meaning of night in his new album, inspired by his own troubled experiences and by French writer Maurice Blanchot’s concept of ‘other night’ - the night of dreaming that delivers not rest but restlessness.

Keeping the synapses firing into the small hours there’s also hyperactive jazz from Philipp Gropper, and a meld of cartoonish metal and tropical rhythms from Chupame el Dedo.

Plus a look ahead to this weekend’s Sidmouth Folk Festival, featuring an array of homegrown and international artists including Ireland’s Lisa O’Neill.

Produced by Chris Elcombe.
A Reduced Listening Production for BBC Radio 3.
