Sounds from tangled timelines

Jennifer Lucy Allan takes routes outwards from minimalism and finds Jewish horn drones, Elodie Lauten's opera with Arthur Russell and glossy guitar soundscapes by Julia Reidy.

Jennifer Lucy Allan takes routes outwards from minimalism and finds Jewish shofar horn drones by Alvin Curran, microtonal composer Elodie Lauten’s opera featuring Arthur Russell and missives from Robert Ashley.

Elsewhere we continue to celebrate music that falls between the gaps with 1980s Peruvian tape music dedicated to Lorca, the rumble and swirl of Shackleton’s new project Tunes of Negation and glossy guitar soundscapes from Julia Reidy.

Produced by Alannah Chance.
