Spät, aber besser als nie. Diese Sendung ist einfach zu gut. Allein schon wegen Saul Williams und Moor Mother, Fela Kuti, Pharoah Sanders, Leafcutter John, Keiji Haino, Jozef Dumoulin. Ihr merkt schon, es gilt anhören!

Join Verity Sharp on Christmas evening by the fire with her special guest, acclaimed poet, actor, and musician Saul Williams. Saul dives deep into the outer recesses of his far-ranging tastes, to curate a late-night Christmas playlist unlike any other – and to share fireside stories from a life lived at the intersection of music, art and activism. As Christmas draws to a close, we’ll hear an intimate spoken word performance from Saul, who is revered for blurring the line between hip hop and poetry. Elsewhere Verity shares sounds that celebrate light as part of Radio 3’s Light in the Darkness season, from Appalachian rising sun melodies to Norwegian jazz inspired by chiaroscuro, the Italian term for the balance of light and dark in art. For the occasion, the artist Leafcutter John will perform on his homemade light-controlled instrument, a musical interface that is triggered by light. Sounds are created when light is shone upon the interface, sending information from the sensors to his computer and modular synth. He demonstrates his invention with a piece from his recent album but with a seasonal twist: he plays it with Christmas lights. Produced by Katie Callin and Frank Palmer. A Reduced Listening production for BBC Radio 3.
