Jennifer Lucy Allan navigates the uncharted waters of adventurous music. En route we take in the tropical synthesizer sounds of Venezuelan producer Molero whose soundscapes prod at the exoticisation of his home country in western Europe.
Honorary Glaswegian Richard Young offers sparse vocalisations for the last of the summer heat and we hear the stripped back production of Tunisian artist Azu Tiwaline.
Plus we preview the finale of this year’s Wysing Polyphonic festival with guest curator Anne Duffau (A—Z), which is themed around the notion of The Ungovernable and features a collaboration between artists in residence Coby Sey, an electronic artist from South London, and Parisian performer Maëva Berthelot who works with trance and the interplay between conscious and unconscious states.
Produced by Alannah Chance.
