BBC Radio 3 Freeness: Discus Music

Celebrating the 100th release on the wide-ranging creative label Discus Music run by Martin Archer. Beginning 30-years ago as an output for Martin’s own music, Discus has since branched out to supporting a diverse range of musicians across the globe and covers areas of extended song form, free jazz, electronic music and left-field rock. The honour of their 100th title goes to the Palestinian pianist Dirar Kalash and his first encounter with a grand piano for a long time.

Plus, a track from saxophonist and free jazz pioneer Albert Ayler’s 1964 live album Bells and Prophecy; the noise artist and poet Moor Mother shares her first foray into theatrical work and a younger label, Bloxham Tapes celebrates their 25th release with a slowly moving duo of clarinet and electronics. Produced by Rebecca Gaskell A Reduced Listening production for BBC Radio 3.
