A series of hour long live mix recordings, compositions and productions by Mac Dunlop. These broadcasts explore the knock on effects of sound layers within the evolution of sonic themes as they form. This series arose from a desire for a sound that is no more music than it is noise. A sound that feels like it is around all the time, a sound that compliments, a sound that is camouflaged inside everything else. Find out more at www.macspianolounge.blogspot.com.

A series of three radio programmes originating in sound’s relation to text, judgement and the construction of community - made as part of a workshop for the MA Sound Arts at LCC, UAL. Today: 2/3: Writing Rooms. Samuel Loynes’ sound-poem composition blends deep organ music with church-scale reverb that underpins intimate prophetic vocals. This reverberant space transposes into Marco Tarantino’s work of generative music produced in response to Brian Eno’s meditations upon this form of composition. Subsequently the listener comes to reside in the living room of Yinan Ji whereby sounds of his writing, smoking and contemplation create a kind of amplified ‘battle ground’ of ambient sounds. The work ends on drug-spiked techno within a predatory arena by composer and sound designer Yuu Ki. Featuring Yinan Ji, Sam Loynes, Marco Tarantino, and Yuu ki Xi Fang. [Repeats Wednesday 3pm.]
