9.30am Building a Library: Katy Hamilton on Liszt’s B minor Sonata

When Clara Schumann described Liszt's 1854 Piano Sonata in B minor as 'truly terrible' it reflected an influential school of 19th-century thought (Brahms fell asleep when he first heard it). But for Liszt himself it was his breakthrough piece which established him as a 'proper' composer, one for whom musically-driven formal organisation and inspired ingenuity were paramount, rather than a mere pianist whose music was generated by the need to demonstrate his transcendent technique.

Posterity has sided with Liszt, not Clara – and so have successive generations of performers, reflected in a recorded legacy that is a veritable Who's Who of the great pianists of the last century and our own.

SAT 11:45 Music Matters (m000xz9b)
Writers on Music

Kate Molleson talks to some of today's greatest writers about how music shapes their work and explores the ineffable intersection between words and music. Featuring Colm Tóibín, Elif Shafak, Ishmael Reed, Simon Armitage and Lavinia Greenlaw.

Best-selling Irish writer Colm Tóibín’s writing is infused with sound and music. His latest book is a fictional account of the life of Thomas Mann and is steeped in Mahler and Schoenberg. He discusses the powerful role music plays in his fiction and reads from his book ‘Nora Webster’, in which the main character finds resilience through music after the death of her husband. Turkish-British writer Elif Shafak talks about the sound of Istanbul, the social implications of sound and silence and how her books can give voice to those in society who are otherwise voiceless. She reads from her acclaimed book ‘10 Minutes 38 Seconds in this Strange World’ and talks about the influence of heavy metal on her writing. US writer Ishmael Reed explores the role of improvisation and rhythm in his work, including his 1972 classic ‘Mumbo Jumbo’ and a new collection of poetry called ‘Why the Black Hole Sings the Blues’. Poet Laureate Simon Armitage discusses how music and words mix in the poetry he writes for his band YLR and the volatility of language when set to music. And poet and novelist Lavinia Greenlaw explores the fundamental way in which music has shaped her writing throughout her life, as well as the interconnectedness of music, memory and emotion.

SAT 13:00 Inside Music (m000xzrq)
Percussionist Louise Goodwin finds song in rhythm

Louise Goodwin is Principal Timpani and percussionist with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, and has performed with ensembles ranging from the BBC Symphony Orchestra to Aurora Orchestra.

Today, Louise explains how Bach’s cello suites are so perfectly suited to the marimba, and why singing in a choir can set you up to tune a drum.

She also finds similarities between pieces by Philip Glass and Indian Classical music, and explains why using a smaller drum in a symphony by Mozart can be more satisfying than performing it on modern timpani.

Plus, a piece by American composer Johanna Beyer that Louise would love to play one day...

A series in which each week a musician explores a selection of music - from the inside.

SAT 18:00 Opera on 3 (m000xzrz)
Strauss's Der Rosenkavalier

Premiered in 1911, Strauss's most-loved and enduring opera is set in 18th-century Vienna where the Field Marshall's wife, the Marschallin, finds solace from her unhappy marriage in love affairs with teenage boys. She persuades her current lover Octavian that he should replace her with someone younger. 16-year-old Sophie Faninal is engaged to the elderly, lecherous and impoverished Baron Ochs. The engagement suits both Sophie's father, Faninal, who sees Sophie as a ticket to a better social sphere, and Ochs who drools with anticipation, not just at the huge dowry Sophie will bring. Octavian dresses up as a woman to seduce Ochs and thus thwart the Baron's impending nuptials. At the end it’s mission accomplished as Octavian and Sophie become lovers and the Marschallin declares the opera's events as "a masquerade, as we in Vienna practice – nothing more." The whole is wrapped up in an irresistible combination of Strauss's sumptuous orchestration, wonderful melodies and his ravishing way with the female voice.

But beneath the surface froth, it's the serious and enduring themes which have made Der Rosenkavalier a classic, including ageing and loneliness, the relentless passage of time, hypocrisy, desire and love.

Tom Service introduces this new production recorded last month at Garsington Opera, which used Eberhard Kloke's 2019, widely praised transcription for middle-sized orchestra. Presented in conversation with Observer critic Fiona Maddocks and Swedish soprano Miah Persson who, famous in the part of Sophie, now takes the role of the Marschallin for the first time.

SUN 00:00 Freeness (m000xzs3)
Vision Festival at 25

The best jazz and improvised music with an adventurous spirit.

Corey Mwamba previews this year’s Vision Festival - for 25 years the spiritual home of free music in New York City. He speaks to the American pianist, poet and vocalist Amina Claudine Myers who is receiving a lifetime achievement award at the event. Amina’s expansive career has covered blues, gospel, spirituals, jazz and improv as well as theatre and choral work, and she introduces a couple of tracks from her back catalogue.

Elsewhere on the show, there’s light and exploratory improvisation that floats through the air from an ensemble put together by Torgrim Sollid, a Norwegian folk and jazz musician. And pianist Lisa Cay Miller, guitarist Vicky Mettler and bassist Raphaël Foisy-Couture spontaneously create gritty, fine-grained and revelatory music.

She also discovers dark, introverted sonorites in the combination of viola and piano in an Elegie by Henri Vieuxtemps, and some bleak beauty in Vaughan Williams’ In the Fen Country.

Plus, the perfectly woven harmonies of Tomas Luis de Victoria’s Requiem Mass.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m000xzmv)
Carole Boyd

Carole Boyd is an accomplished theatre actress: she has recorded some three hundred audio books, and she does all the female voices in Postman Pat. But all this pales into insignificance compared with the role she has played on radio for thirty-five years, as Archer's character Lynda Snell.

More than five million Archers listeners have been listening to her as the snobbish but good-hearted Lynda since she first arrived in Ambridge, in 1986. Lynda is the Archers’ theatre director, putting on pantomimes and musicals; and Carole Boyd too is musical, creating words and music shows.

In conversation with Michael Berkeley, Carole Boyd tells the story of how she became an actress, despite the opposition of her family (she applied to drama school secretly) and how she was inspired to create the inimitable grating speech of Lynda Snell by the voice of her husband’s secretary. She concedes that her identity has become somewhat blurred with Lynda’s, and that channeling Lynda’s assertiveness is very useful when doing battle with utility companies on the phone. She admits, though, that she has never got close to a llama (unlike Lynda).

More seriously, Carole Boyd talks movingly about what it’s like to care for her husband, Patrick, who had a major stroke in 2003. She speaks very honestly about the daily reality of life as a carer: the loneliness, the frustration, the mourning for the person you used to know, and still love.

Carole Boyd’s playlist ranges from Schubert and Debussy to The Beatles, taking in Vaughan Williams, Canteloube, and Aaron Copland. We hear too Laurence Olivier with the St Crispin’s Day speech from Henry V.

From London's Wigmore Hall: the Elias String Quartet play Haydn and Mendelssohn.

Named after Mendelssohn's oratorio, Elijah, the Elias Quartet promises to give a deeply penetrating performance of Mendelssohn's hommage to Beethoven.
Although written when he was still a teenager, the A minor quartet is a work of astonishing maturity, revealing his fascination for the late quartets of Beethoven which so perplexed his contemporaries, not least Mendelssohn's own father.

Themes and Variations

Tom Service explores the endless potential of musical variations on a theme. On the one hand it's the simplest of all musical ideas - take a basic tune and play around with it - and yet on the other, it's a deeply profound reflection of life, as small sequences of musical DNA provide the building blocks for structures of ever increasing complexity.


SUN 17:30 Words and Music (m000xzn3)
The Tudors

From Shakespeare to Hilary Mantel - the Tudors is a period rich in literature, with a king who is said to have composed Greensleeves for his future Queen Anne Boleyn. Today's Words and Music is inspired by the Tudor dynasty who ruled England from Henry VII’s reign in 1485 until the death of Elizabeth I in 1603. Theirs was an era of turbulence, from the Wars of the Roses, to the seismic break with Rome under Henry VIII, and the bloody era of protestant executions under Mary I. There is poetry by the key players in the Tudor drama: Thomas Wyatt (who was accused of adultery with Anne Boleyn), Mary, Queen of Scots and Elizabeth I herself. And we feature extracts from one of the most compelling modern-day takes on the Tudors: Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall. Musically, we’ll hear from the star of this week’s series of Essays, William Byrd; and Thomas Tallis, who walked a dangerous line as a Catholic composer in Elizabeth I's Protestant court, and we'll also hear Tudor inspired music by Donizetti and Benjamin Britten.

SUN 18:45 Between the Ears (m000xzn5)
The Virtual Symphony

The joys and horrors of the internet, evoked by stories, sounds and an exciting new electronic and vocal work composed by Kieran Brunt. Opens with an introduction by the composer.

30 years ago, Tim Berners-Lee created the very first website. This powerful edition of Between the Ears explores how the internet has dramatically reshaped our lives over the following three decades.

In 1990s Glasgow, a young woman in a physics computer lab glimpses a different future for the world - and herself. In Luton, the web awakens a young man’s Sikh identity - a few years on, it will bring him riches. In 2001, a young mother in France finds escape through Wikipedia. Ten years later, an Austrian law student is horrified when he requests his personal data from Facebook…

Over four movements of music and personal stories, the Virtual Symphony moves from sunny optimism to deep disquiet, as our relationship to the internet shifts. Around these stories, composer Kieran Brunt weaves electronic and vocal elements in an exhilarating new musical work commissioned by BBC Radio 3.

Kieran Brunt and documentary producer Laurence Grissell worked in close collaboration to produce a unique evocation of the way in which the internet has fundamentally changed how we experience and understand the world.

Composer: Kieran Brunt
Producer: Laurence Grissell

Interviewees:
Melissa Terras, Harjit Lakhan, Florence Devouard and Max Schrems

Vocals performed by Kieran Brunt, Lucy Cronin, Kate Huggett, Oliver Martin-Smith and Augustus Perkins Ray of the vocal ensemble Shards

SUN 19:15 Sunday Feature (m000xzn7)
Staycationing in the style of abroad

As tourist hotspots swing into action with the start of the school holidays, Dr Seán Williams takes a trip in a cable car on a sunny, clear day. It’s as if he’s in the Swiss Alps — except he is crossing the A6, to more of a small hill than an Alpine summit. Welcome to just one of the many Little Switzerlands across England, and around the world.

We have long staycationed in the style of abroad. Seán goes on the journey of Swissophilia since the start of the 19th century. It’s a story of strangeness, outlandish comparisons, kitsch — and cottage rentals.

Seán looks at picture postcard scenes, reads literature and art criticism, and is left speechless by Swiss-style follies in grand gardens. Professor Patrick Vincent from the University of Neuchâtel and travel writer Nick Hunt join him in conversation to reflect on the ways in which we view local scenes through the lens of abroad.

Together, they ask: how has the familiar been made to feel more foreign in the past? Why might this uncanniness be contemporary, amid Covid-19 and climate change? Who makes sometimes far-fetched and far-flung comparisons when describing a place? And what does it all matter… is there such a thing as an authentic vacation, anyway?

Producer: Mohini Patel


SUN 19:30 Drama on 3 (b09hrr7t)

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b0770mrz)
William Byrd (1543-1623)

The Bird of Loudest Lay

Donald Macleod explores some of the vast range of Byrd’s music including secret settings of the Latin Mass, instrumental dances and erotic songs.

Religious intolerance cast a long shadow over the life and music of William Byrd. As a Roman Catholic in Elizabethan England, he was persecuted by the state and often forced to tread a dangerous path between his personal convictions and his duty to the Queen.
His musical talent and his strength of character enabled him not just to survive, but thrive. Despite his trials he was, and continues to be, celebrated as the greatest British musician of his age.

There is frustratingly little evidence that William Byrd was personally acquainted with his fellow Elizabethan, William Shakespeare. Although, a tantalising reference to “the bird of loudest lay” in Shakespeare’s sonnet, The Phoenix and the Turtle hints that they may have been more than mere contemporaries. Byrd did move in celebrated circles, including his long service in the Queen’s Chapel Royal choir. In this first programme Donald Macleod explores how Byrd’s faith marked him out as an outsider, even as his talent led him to the very heart of the British musical establishment.

All this week, to accompany Composer of the Week, Radio 3 is also exploring William Byrd’s life through a series of new dramas starring David Suchet. To Preserve the Health of Man is at 10.45 each night.

MON 22:45 To Preserve the Health of Man (m000xz9d)
Episode 1

David Suchet stars as the English Renaissance composer William Byrd, 'The Father of English Music'. In five imagined encounters, Byrd looks back at key influences in his life and work, as he composes his major liturgical work, the Gradualia, a collection of 109 pieces written for each of the feasts and events in the Church calendar.

Episode 1

Advent 1603. As a Catholic, Byrd enjoyed the patronage and protection of Elizabeth I but now, the early years of James I bring change and turbulence and a renewed threat to Catholics following the Reformation. Byrd's wife, Juliana, convinces him not to be afraid and to continue with his composition.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b0774050)
William Byrd (1543-1623)

Lincoln

Donald Macleod looks at Byrd’s early life. The celebrated composer began his career as a boy chorister at the Chapel Royal, becoming apprentice to its organist, Thomas Tallis, before winning his first music director post at Lincoln Cathedral.

Religious intolerance cast a long shadow over the life and music of William Byrd. As a Roman Catholic in Elizabethan England, he was persecuted by the state and often forced to tread a dangerous path between his personal convictions and his duty to the Queen.
His musical talent and his strength of character enabled him not just to survive, but thrive. Despite his trials he was, and continues to be, celebrated as the greatest British musician of his age.

By the time he was twenty, Byrd had already served under four successive monarchs. He experienced first-hand how musicians were put at the front line in the battle of faiths, as Britain’s rulers see-sawed between new Anglican religion and Roman Catholicism.
Donald follows young William to his first proper job, at Lincoln Cathedral, where he composed for voices and instruments. At Lincoln he also converted to Catholicism, a decision that would profoundly affect the rest of his life.

All this week, to accompany Composer of the Week, Radio 3 is also exploring William Byrd’s life through a series of new dramas starring David Suchet. To Preserve the Health of Man is at 10.45 each night.

From The Royal Festival Hall, London on 11 October 2011.

On two nights in October 2011, the 78-year-old maestro brought his handpicked orchestra to The Royal Festival Hall to give legendary performances. As one reviewer wrote of the Bruckner: "Abbado gave a performance that – in terms of ensemble, expression and flexibility – was among the most astonishing any of us are likely to experience...... A vision of infinity, a collapsing of time and space into a single point of brilliance and intensity."
With original concert presentation by Louise Fryer.
Presented by Martin Handley.

Bette Davis

A spinster dominated by her mother in Now Voyager (1942), a strong-willed Southern belle in Jezebel (1938) which won her an Academy award for best actress, a Broadway star in All About Eve (1950): just some of the 100 film roles played Bette Davis during a career which ran from the 1930s to the late 1980s. As the British Film Institute puts on a season of films throughout August, including a re-mastered version of Now Voyager, Matthew Sweet is joined by Sarah Churchwell, Lucy Bolton and Anna Bogutskaya to talk about Bette Davis failing her first screen test because she didn't "look like an actress", her legal fight with the studios, working for the war effort and the appeal of Bette Davis eyes.

Sarah Churchwell is professorial fellow in American literature and chair of public understanding of the humanities at the School of Advanced Study, University of London and the author of Behold, America: A History of America First and the American Dream, Careless People: Murder, Mayhem and The Invention of The Great Gatsby, and The Many Lives of Marilyn Monroe.

Anna Bogutskaya is a film programmer, broadcaster, writer and creative producer. She is the co-founder of the horror film collective The Final Girls and Festival Director of Underwire Festival.

Lucy Bolton is Reader in Film Studies at Queen Mary, University of London. She is the author of Contemporary Cinema and the Philosophy of Iris Murdoch and co-editor of Lasting Screen Stars: Images that Fade and Personas that Endure.

Now Voyager, directed by Irving Rapper opens at the BFI and selected cinemas around the UK from August 6th 2021. You can find other discussions about "landmark" films and Hollywood stars in the Landmarks playlist on the Free Thinking programme website https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p01jwn44

Episode 2

Easter 1604. Byrd reflects on the careful line he has walked between political pragmatism and adherence to his faith and his inspiration. Queen Elizabeth protected and rewarded him but not without some compromise on his part.

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b0774054)
William Byrd (1543-1623)

Businessman

Byrd risks his livelihood and his reputation as he ventures into music publishing. With Donald Macleod.

Religious intolerance cast a long shadow over the life and music of William Byrd. As a Roman Catholic in Elizabethan England, he was persecuted by the state and often forced to tread a dangerous path between his personal convictions and his duty to the Queen.
His musical talent and his strength of character enabled him not just to survive, but thrive. Despite his trials he was, and continues to be, celebrated as the greatest British musician of his age.

The book business was booming in London, with a hundred and seventy-five booksellers thriving in the city. So, Byrd felt certain he would make his fortune when the Queen herself awarded him a monopoly on the printing and sale of music. Things didn’t turn out quite as he planned.

All this week, to accompany Composer of the Week, Radio 3 is also exploring William Byrd’s life through a series of new dramas starring David Suchet. To Preserve the Health of Man is at 10.45 each night.

Landmark: Rashomon

David Peace, Natasha Pulley, Yuna Tasaka and Jasper Sharp join Rana Mitter.

Ryūnosuke Akutagawa's short story 'In a Grove', published in 1922, became the basis for the 1950 film from Akira Kurosawa 'Rashōmon', one of the first Japanese films to gain worldwide critical acclaim. 'The Rashōmon Effect' has become a byword for the literary technique where the same event is presented via the different and incompatible testimonies from the characters involved. David Peace's new book 'Patient X' is a novelised response to Ryūnosuke Akutagawa's last years and his death by suicide at the age of 35. Natasha Pulley is a novelist and Japanophile with a particular interest in Japanese literature of the 1920s, and in the unreliable narrator implied by use of the Rashōmon Effect. And Jasper Sharp is a writer and curator, author of the Historical Dictionary of Japanese Cinema.

Producer: Luke Mulhall.

Episode 3

David Suchet stars as the English Renaissance composer William Byrd, 'The Father of English Music'. In five imagined encounters, Byrd looks back at key influences in his life and work, as he composes his major liturgical work, the Gradualia, a collection of 109 pieces written for each of the feasts and events in the Church calendar.

Episode 3

Ascension Day, 1605. Byrd recalls his friend and mentor Thomas Tallis, from whom he learnt both about music and about political survival. Under Queen Elizabeth, they were granted the exclusive and lucrative licence to publish music in England and to sell staved paper.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b0774058)
William Byrd (1543-1623)

Friends and Patrons

Byrd’s Catholic faith forced him to choose his friends carefully, and he rewarded his allies with extraordinary music. With Donald Macleod.

Religious intolerance cast a long shadow over the life and music of William Byrd. As a Roman Catholic in Elizabethan England, he was persecuted by the state and often forced to tread a dangerous path between his personal convictions and his duty to the Queen.
His musical talent and his strength of character enabled him not just to survive, but thrive. Despite his trials he was, and continues to be, celebrated as the greatest British musician of his age.

Byrd cultivated friends in influential positions, including the family of Sir John Petre, who also shared Byrd’s Catholic faith. Donald Macleod follows Byrd to the Petre estate at Thorndon Hall in Essex where many of his works were performed, and to the nearby village of Stondon Massey where Byrd eventually set up his own country pad. Plus, we take a look along the shelves in Byrd’s personal library.

All this week, to accompany Composer of the Week, Radio 3 is also exploring William Byrd’s life through a series of new dramas starring David Suchet. To Preserve the Health of Man is at 10.45 each night.

Continuing the series of memorable concerts given by visiting orchestras from the last decade of the Radio 3 archive, Yuri Temirkanov conducts the legendary St. Petersburg Philharmonic in a programme of Russian music recorded at Bridgewater Hall, Manchester in 2014. The repertoire has a link to the city as Liadov, who composed the first piece, the tone poem Kikimora, was born in St Petersburg as was Shostakovich. The orchestra premiered no fewer than seven of Shostakovich's symphonies, including the final piece in the concert, his 10th Symphony. Sandwiched between these two pieces is Tchaikovsky’s great Romantic Violin Concerto, performed by the Spanish violinist Leticia Moreno.

Liadov: Kikimora
Tchaikovsky: Violin Concerto

THU 22:00 Free Thinking (b0b01xk3)
Tokyo Idols and Urban life

Tokyo used to be presented as the ultimate hyper-modern city. But after years of economic recession the Tokyo of today has another side. A site of alienation and loneliness, anxiety about conformity and identity, it is a place where self-professed 'geeks' (or 'otaku'), mostly single middle-aged men, congregate in districts like Akibahara to pursue fanatical interests outside mainstream society, including cult-like followings of teenage girl singers known as Tokyo Idols.

Novelist Tomouki Hoshino, photographer Suzanne Mooney, writer/photographer Mariko Nagai and film-maker Kyoko Miyake look at life in the city for the Heisei generation. Presented by Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough.

Director Kyoko Miyake has made a film called Tokyo Idols which looks at the obsession of middle aged men with superstar teenage girls who make a living online
Suzanne Mooney's photographs depict the urban landscapes of Tokyo.
Novelist Tomouki Hoshino's latest book to be translated into English is called ME. It's about rootless millennials and suicide.
Mariko Nagai is an author and photographer who has written for children and adults. Her books include Instructions for the Living and Irradiated Cities.

The translator was Bethan Jones and the speakers were all in the UK to take part in events as part of Japan Now - a festival at the British Library in London, and in Manchester, Sheffield, Norwich. Programmed by Modern Culture in partnership with the Japan Foundation and Sheffield University.

David Suchet stars as the English Renaissance composer William Byrd, 'The Father of English Music'. In five imagined encounters, Byrd looks back at key influences in his life and work, as he composes his major liturgical work, the Gradualia, a collection of 109 pieces written for each of the feasts and events in the Church calendar.

Episode 4

Pentecost, 1606. James I is wreaking revenge on Catholics following the Gunpowder Plot and times have become dangerous for Byrd and his wife. The first part of the Gradualia has been published and the manuscripts pose a threat for anyone who possesses a copy, especially as they are written in Latin.

Elizabeth Alker presents eclectic ambient music by a new generation of composers. This week features laid-back warmth and cloud-like synths on a track by Hollie Kenniff which was inspired by a quote - “I long for a kind of quiet where I can just drift and dream” - from the director David Lynch. The artist known as Tiny Leaves expresses his gratitude for the natural world on a track with a delicate cinematic quality that brings about a quiet hope. Plus music from the Canadian composer Sarah Davachi who sonically haunted a decommissioned coal fired power station at the Abandon Normal Devices festival recently. Working with the visual artist Aura Satz, Sarah weaves eerie mournful sounds into a live online broadcast called The Grief Interval.

William Byrd (1543-1623)

Retirement

Byrd attends Elizabeth I’s funeral and looks to his own legacy. With Donald Macleod.

Religious intolerance cast a long shadow over the life and music of William Byrd. As a Roman Catholic in Elizabethan England, he was persecuted by the state and often forced to tread a dangerous path between his personal convictions and his duty to the Queen.
His musical talent and his strength of character enabled him not just to survive, but thrive. Despite his trials he was, and continues to be, celebrated as the greatest British musician of his age.

Byrd’s reputation remained undimmed in his old age and, as the Tudors gave way to the Stewarts, things began to look rosier for musicians like Byrd. However, the activities of a certain Guy Fawkes meant that his plans to publish a set of ‘Propers’ for the Catholic Mass had to be put on hold.

All this week, to accompany Composer of the Week, Radio 3 is also exploring William Byrd’s life through a series of new dramas starring David Suchet. To Preserve the Health of Man is at 10.45 each night.

David Suchet stars as the English Renaissance composer William Byrd, 'The Father of English Music'. In five imagined encounters, Byrd looks back at key influences in his life and work, as he composes his major liturgical work, the Gradualia, a collection of 109 pieces written for each of the feasts and events in the Church calendar.

Episode 4

Feast of St Peter & St Paul, 1607. Byrd is keeping a low profile and continuing with his composition. He must finally confront his memories of Edmund Campion, the Catholic martyr under Elizabeth and his close friend, whose staunch faith led to torture and the scaffold.

FRI 23:00 Late Junction (m000rwn3)
Sounds of the Universe

Throughout human history, drone music has been associated with the divine. The ancient Greeks thought the music of the planets, or the ‘universal music’, was one extended tone. In Hinduism Om is the primordial sound from which all existence springs and it’s the first thing we hear in the womb. But what role does it play in the radical music of the 20th Century? Ahead of his book on the subject, writer Harry Sword joins Verity to explore the heavier manifestations of drone. He shares pieces which challenge the idea that drone is always meditative, taking a look instead at the artists who are marrying metal and drone while still attempting to transcend the self.

We tune into the universal hum with pieces from current minimalist composer Sarah Davachi, heavy drone overlords Sunn O))) and ancient instrument player Barnaby Brown who uses vulture bones and prehistoric pipes to play Celtic drone. Verity also reflects on the recurring presence of the note C within drone. Engines often idle at C. Her coffee machine drones a C, as do bees in a hive, and Terry Riley famously focused on the note for his ‘In C’.

Elsewhere Verity picks out some anti-establishment electronics from Swiss Togo duo Yao Bobby and Simon Grab and we play new music from Mica Levi, which snuck out late last year.
