Verity Sharp presents a 30-minute mixtape compiled by the legendary musician and artist Limpe Fuchs. Her selections include R Carlos Nakai, Klaus Nomi, and Staff Benda Bilili.
Across a 40-year career Limpe Fuchs has pioneered a “no formalism” sound and visual performance style, improvising with handmade instruments and sonic sculptures. She has been cited as a key influence on the West German experimental rock scene of the 70s, and later the psychedelic underground of the 80s.
Also tonight, a chance to hear another improvisation recorded during a recent collaboration session between percussionist Sarathy Korwar and cellist Abel Selaocoe.
Produced by Jack Howson.
A Reduced Listening production for BBC Radio 3.
