Ancient wintery rituals

Elizabeth Alker with a feast of music that defies classification, including new releases and exclusive previews.

Between all the toffee apple induced sugar highs and frightful Halloween dressing up, in this episode, Elizabeth Alker has no tricks and all treats; new soundtrack music by PJ Harvey, Canadian electronic producer LNS's remix of field recordings of an ancient Italian dance ritual and freeform ambient experimentation from Burial. She'll also shine the spotlight on new composer Ell Kendall, look back to the Southbank's Deep Minimalism festival with Oliver Coates and head into the woods with viola player and composer Alison Cotton.
