Another show recorded in the comfort of my own flat – I seem to have a bit of a sore throat and it was recorded at the same time as rush hour. There is a bit of interference from the traffic outside my window and my links are more chaotic than normal because I was recording the show backwards to accommodate the last track. I am so dog-tired after a sleepless night that I could not face going up to the studio to sit there to record the show. Well, it is done now …. (sighs)

String Quartet No. 1, the piece composed by Reinhold Friedl was dedicated to Anton Lukoszevieze & commissioned by BBC London. On the piece, instruments are only bowed in circles. These simple movements, when combined in an asymmetric rhythmical structure, cause complex soundscapes that tend to develop a certain tonal state. Check out the album here – – you can listen to it in its entirety.

The album from which the sole Field Recording I play on tonight’s show is lifted from Sounds Of Nepal Volumes 1-3 by Aaron Dilloway. The album was released by Hanson Records February 2013. All of the profits from the sale of the album will go to The America Nepal Medical Foundation –

Hope you appreciate the last track.
