SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b00zlgxx)
Harry's Boston Concerto

The first in a series of special Music Matters broadcast on three consecutive nights in which Tom Service gets unprecedented access to three of Britain's most important composers.

Sir Harrison Birtwistle has never written a concerto for a stringed instrument. His violin concerto which receives its UK premiere on Wednesday evening at the Proms was given its first performance in Boston by violinist Christian Tetzlaff and the Boston Symphony Orchestra at the beginning of March this year.

Tom Service meets Sir Harrison, or Harry as he's better known, at his home, a converted silk factory in Wiltshire in the weeks leading up the first performance of the concerto in the States. He then travels to Boston, and has unprecedented access to him in during rehearsals, and in the hours before the premiere. Birtwistle talks candidly about what drives his music, his fears for the concerto, his frustrations during rehearsal and how a composer can never be satisfied with their music:

"A clarinet player in Holland once asked me if I was pleased with what she'd just played. I asked her if she looked in the mirror this morning and did she like what she saw? And she said no she didn't. But nobody likes what they see. And I think it's a bit like that. I've gone through it note to note and made this piece, and at the back of my mind, as there always is, there are certain wounds. That could be better. I could go on writing a piece of music for quite a long time, but I'm not going to. I know the wounds, and I know the wounds from very early pieces, but when I hear them after a period of time, the wound has healed, but another one has appeared in the mean-time. That's the insecurity more than anything. It's insecurity more than tragedy!"

He talks about his early life in music growing up as a child in Accrington.

"I always wrote music. I wrote music from the age of 8. I've still got it. I just sort of had a notion that there was something else out there. I was attracted to making a music that in a sense didn't already exist."

"I played in the pit orchestra in theatres as in Accrington. When that finished I was asked to stay on and play the pantomimes - I think it must have been terrible. For 2 years I carried on and then played in variety shows . comedians and all that. I'd got £56 I'd been saving up all my life to by a motorbike and bought a saxophone with it. I loved all that . The pantomime and the variety. I was a sort of a professional musician as a kid - 14 years old - still at school."

"It was the idea of being a creative person I liked, but I didn't see it as pretentiously as that."

It was the response to Birtwistle's piece Panic performed at the Last Night of the Proms in 1994 that brought his name to a wider public. The BBC switchboard was overwhelmed with callers complaining about such a piece being programmed on the Last Night. But Harry is philosophical about the public reaction to his work.

Compromise doesn't seem to be a word in Birtwistle's make up. He's a talented cook and gardener. He seems to approach everything with the same intensity as he does when he composes.

"Yes, I have no hobbies. I have no relaxations. If I do a bit of gardening or cooking, It'd be silly to do something that wasn't as good as possible. In that sense you can't do better."

Service asks him what his limitations as a composer are.
"I can only do what I do. The sort of fluency that comes through commercial music, I couldn't do. I admire it, often it's very, very good, particularly with film music it's craft. I don't know where the craft is in what I do. If you listen to John Williams you know there craft that makes it have that Technicolour. I don't have another side."

But before travelling to Boston, Birtwistle talks about the violin concerto:

"The side of it that worries me is the balance. Having looked at several violin concertos since, they're quite thin the instrumentation. I was conscious of it [the balance] but I don't know if I've solved it. Never mind what I've written, if I can hear it, I'll be happy!"

Tom asks if he's looking forward to hearing it in Boston.

"Oh yeh - yeh - of course I am!"

Presenter: Tom Service.
Producer: Jeremy Evans.

SAT 15:00 World Routes (b00zlgy1)
Argentina

Chamame

Banning Eyre heads into North East Argentina with Chamame accordionist Chango Spasiuk, to see the red earth and hear this unique accordion driven music.

Misiones province in North East Argentina is a sliver of land between Brazil and Paraguay, more tropical than the rest of Argentina, it is part of the ancestral home of the Guarani people. Home to a large number of Jesuit missions in the 17th Century, during the early part of the 20th Century Misiones received an influx of European immigrants to work on the land, especially from Poland and the Ukraine. These East European farmers brought with them the accordion, which added Schottische and Polkas to an already rich cultural mix and the Chamame was born.

Banning Eyre takes internationally renowned chamame accordionist Chango Spasiuk back to his roots in Misiones, to hear about how he learnt the accordion, and to meet and record local musicians. Sergio Tarnovsky is a young local talent from Apostoles who plays the 21 button diatonic accordion known as the verdulera. Lalo Doreto hails from the town of Obera, and is a local radio host, singer, and guitarist, and he puts on a special afternoon session with some friends in his back yard.

As well as being the home of Chamame, Misiones is also the home of "yerba mate", the bitter green tea drunk with a metal straw from a hollowed out gourd by almost everyone in Argentina. Chango shows Banning the right, and the wrong way to make and drink it.

On the way back from the North East they stop in at the Anconetani accordion factory in Buenos Aires, the first Argentine handmade accordion company, to meet its octogenarian patron Nazereno Anconetani, for a tour of the workshops and a session with one of Chamame's elder statesmen, accordionist Tilo Escobar.

Presenter: Banning Eyre
Producer: Peter Meanwell.


SAT 16:00 Jazz Library (b00zlgy3)

Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor

Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor live from the Metropolitan Opera in New York. Natalie Dessay stars as the innocent Lucia, forced by her brother into a political marriage with Arturo when she's desparately in love with Edgardo. The heartbreak and ruthlessness of her brother become too much for the fragile heroine, with tragic consequences.

Presented by Margaret Juntwait with guest commentator Ira Siff.

Edgardo ..... Joseph Calleja (tenor)
Enrico ..... Ludovic Tezier (baritone)
Raimondo ..... Kwangchul Youn (bass)

SAT 22:30 Hear and Now (b00zlgy9)
Birmingham Contemporary Music Group

Robert Worby presents a concert from Birmingham, and talks to featured composer Jo Kondo.

Jo Kondo: Standing
Stefan Wolpe: Piece in Two Parts for Six Players
Oliver Knussen: Requiem - Songs for Sue
Jo Kondo: Three Songs Tennyson Sung (world premiere)
Morton Feldman: The Viola in My Life II
Harrison Birtwistle: Silbury Air

Claire Booth (soprano)
Christopher Yates (viola)
BCMG, conductor Oliver Knussen

This concert was recorded last weekend in Brimingham, home of the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group- bcmg. It includes two works by leading Japanese composer Jo Kondo, who is celebrated for his delicately minimal soundworld.
Oliver Knussen's conducting and composing career has often taken him to the US and to Japan, fuelling an interest in the composers living and working in those countries. He is a long-standing champion of the music of Jo Kondo, whose new Sound Investment commission, Three Songs Tennyson Sung, for soprano and 7 instruments is unveiled in this concert. Kondo's music has been compared to the pointillist painting technique of Georges Seurat. He pays great attention to the colour and sonority of individual notes and instruments.
Knussen's Requiem - Songs for Sue, is a memorial piece for his wife Sue Knussen, which sets poetry by Rilke, Emily Dickinson, Machado and WH Auden. The American Morton Feldman's quiet, slowly unfolding music has a kinship with Jo Kondo. Harrison Birtwistle's classic piece Silbury Air was inspired by the mysterious earthwork called Silbury Hill.



SUNDAY 20 MARCH 2011

SUN 00:00 The Early Music Show (b00sw925)
Edward III

Lucie Skeaping looks back on Edward III's 14th Century England with historian Ian Mortimer, focusing on the nation's life and musical culture.

Edward III can be seen as a defining monarch in the history of the nation. After the disastrous reign of his father Edward II, he rebuilt the nation's confidence modelling his monarchy on the chivalric sensibilities of the legendary Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. The Hundred Years War began with Edward; he undertook a huge programme of castle building; and besides many other things, established the Order of the Garter. This was the age when the English language started to become the nation's lingua franca; it is the age of The Green Knight; Piers Plowman; and Geoffrey Chaucer.

Lucie meets historian Ian Mortimer, an authority of the 14th century and Edward's biographer, to learn more about this period, and she reflects on the Englishness of the music of his age.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b00zlhpj)
Monty Don

This week on Private Passions, Michael Berkeley is invited to the Herefordshire home of horticulturalist and Gardeners' World presenter Monty Don. He and his wife Sarah bought their farmhouse in the early 1990s after their jewellery business collapsed. They set about creating a spectacular garden out of a field, while Monty carved out a new career as an amateur gardener and professional writer and broadcaster. In 2003 he became the first self-taught horticulturalist to present BBC2's Gardeners' World. He stepped down after a minor stroke in 2008, but returned to the series in 2011.

A passionate proponent of organic gardening and farming techniques, Monty Don is now President of the Soil Association and he has co-authored several books on food and cookery with his wife Sarah. A four-part BBC TV series based on his book 'The Italian Garden' aired in 2011.

Monty Don is passionate about music, and the works which move him emotionally include Bach's St Matthew Passion, the slow movement from Beethoven's 'Eroica' Symphony, Haydn's Symphony no.22 'The Philosopher', and the lament from Purcell's Dido and Aeneas. He talks frankly to Michael Berkeley about his long struggle against depression, and the effect that music has on him. A livelier note is struck with the opening movement of Bach's First Brandenburg Concerto, and his choices end appropriately with Green Grass by Tom Waits.

First broadcast in March 2011.

Music from the Habsburg Court

The Fruits of Parnassus - A Portrait of Johann Joseph Fux

Catherine Bott reflects on the life and music of the largely forgotten 18th Century court composer Johann Joseph Fux. He was immensely prolific and enjoyed one of the most prestigious musical positions in Europe, as composer to the Habsburgs in Vienna. JS Bach regarded him as the finest of his contemporaries; and Fux's treatise on musical counterpoint - "Gradus ad Parnassum" - proved a huge influence on Haydn and Beethoven, and is still studied today.

Catherine outlines the life, takes a brief look at "Gradus" and presents a range of recordings from Fux's output giving a flavour of the sound of the Hapsburg court in Vienna in the early 18th Century.

This is the second of two programmes focusing on the music of the Habsburgs.

The programme includes readings from “Steps to Parnassus: The study of counterpoint” by Johann Joseph Fux (translated and edited by Alfred Mann with the collaboration of John St Edmunds), pub. J. M. Dent & Sons Ltd.

Mendelssohn, Gibbons, Leoncavallo

Two very different sea-inspired works in this week's request show - from the familiar strains of Mendelssohn's "Hebrides" Overture in a classic performance by the Hallé, to a sultry Argentinian lament, sung by the legendary Latin vocalist Mercedes Sosa. Between the two, Fiona Talkington introduces works by Gibbons, Leoncavallo, Beethoven and Vainberg...plus a rare arrangement by Dvorak of Stephen Foster's "Old Folks At Home", perhaps better known as "Way Down Upon The Swannee River".

This week's guest requester is poet and writer Owen Sheers, whose choice is the most successful solo jazz recording of all time...Keith Jarrett's "Cologne concert".

Monteverdi's L'Orfeo

Robert Hollingworth joins a specially gathered group of performers for an exploration of some of the pioneering musical ideas behind music's first operatic masterpiece - L'Orfeo.

Robert considers the way in which Monteverdi's ideas about creating opera developed from his experience of writing madrigals. He looks at Monteverdi's expressive use of music to colour and highlight the meaning of the text and features performances of several contrasting episodes from the opera.

SUN 21:30 Sunday Feature (b00zm0nl)
Le Corbusier in Chandigarh

Sukhdev Sandhu travels to Chandigarh in northern India - the city built by Le Corbusier. Commissioned by Nehru and designed as a modernist city in the 1950s how does it fare today?

After Indian independence and partition, the Punjab lost its capital, Lahore, to Pakistan. The remnant Indian state needed new law courts and a parliament. Nehru saw a chance to show how India could modernise and westernise and turn its back on the village and tradition. Various Western architects were commissioned and, eventually, a team led by the giant of modernism, Le Corbusier, got the job. A sparsely populated site, about 150 miles north of Delhi, was identified and Le Corbusier and his team got down to work. Le Corbusier, famously, declared his wish to demolish Paris and rebuild the French capital as he thought it should be. At Chandigarh he was offered the only chance in his career to plan and build a city from scratch. A grid system of numbered sectors was devised, acres of low rise housing was built and, at the head of the city, several monumental concrete buildings - new law courts, a double state parliament and administration offices - rose up in front of a backdrop of the beginings of the Himalayas. This was a vast project calling upon huge resources and manual labouring effort. Le Corbusier attended to the epic vision but also to the detail even designing furniture for the parliament and the new man-hole covers.

Sukhdev Sandhu, whose parents left the Punjab for Gloucester, visited the new city as a boy. He returns to see how this "vision of the future" has coped 60 years on. Sprawling and chaotic suburbs are rising up all round Chandigarh. The green spaces and idealised geometry of Le Corbusier's city have never looked more threatened.
Producer: Tim Dee.


SUN 22:15 Words and Music (b00sbc1t)
The Art of Friendship

Readers Robert Lindsay and Diana Quick.

An exploration of the art of friendship as celebrated through the ages in poetry, prose and music. For all the thousands of poems on love, there are distinctly fewer on what could be seen as love's neglected cousin, friendship. And yet friendship is as common to the human experience as love, and probably just as necessary.
How should we make friends, keep friends, lose them...? What happens to friendships as we get older? Do men and women see friendship in the same way? What is the true nature of friendship - and is it all it's sometimes cracked up to be?

Words from Plutarch, Sir Francis Bacon, Ogden Nash, Auden, T.S.Eliot, Dorothy L. Sayers, Edward Thomas and others, with music to complement the readings.


SUN 23:30 Jazz Line-Up (b00zm0ns)
Tim Whitehead, Nicola Farnon

Jazz Line-Up this week interviews saxophonist and composer Tim Whitehead about his latest project "Colour Beginnings", responding to the colour sketches of the painter JMW Turner.
Tim was appointed "Artist in Residence" at Tate Britain where he explored in depth the work of this great painter. Tim has had a lifelong love of painting and visual art, both as an observer and practitioner and has a strong tonal and textural relationship between these inspirational works and sound in music.

Also on Jazz Line-Up this week is bassist and vocalist Nicola Farnon now making Sheffield her home and in demand in the Northwest Jazz circuit and beyond. With her unique talent as swinging vocalist and double bass player she has accumulated many years of experience and performed with some of the worlds top musicians. Jazz Line-Up recorded Nicola at this year Jazz on a Winter's Weekend in Southport and she brings us a mix of standards and originals.

The light and airy overture by a precocious 17-year old Mendelssohn opens the programme, skillfully depicting the characters in Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. This is followed by Rachmaninov's most well-known piano concerto, also his most romantic, and the work which set him back on track as a composer. To end, the ultimate programmatic symphony: Berlioz wrote the programme note himself to accompany his Symphonie fantastique, which depicts scenes from the life of an artist.

Anne McElvoy talks to the Pet Shop Boys and choreographer Javier de Frutos as their star studded ballet opens tomorrow at Sadler's Wells.

This year marks the 80th birthday of Mikhail Gorbachev. After celebrations at the Kremlin, and ahead of a concert at the Royal Albert Hall, Anne McElvoy is joined by Konstantin von Eggert in Moscow to discuss the differing perceptions of his role in the changing relations of East and West.

A new exibition at the Wellcome Trust in London examines our relationship with dirt - Anne talks to Professor of History at Birkbeck College, Joanna Bourke, and writer Rose George about the extent to which cleanliness is an indicator of civilisation, and differing attitudes to dust, grime and germs.

The world in 2050 will be radically different from today. Northern countries - notably Canada, Russia and Scandinavia - will rise at the expense of southern ones. Larry Smith, author of 'The New North' describes the new lottery of the geography of birth that is coming within the next fifty years.

MON 23:00 The Essay (b00zm2rs)
Requiem for Networks

Welcome to the Labyrinth

Writer Ken Hollings unlocks the history, power and revolutionary change of the new information networks. Are they a revolution or a regime change?

Today the business and academic communities embrace the 'networks' with the same fervor they once showed the electronic media of the 1960s. Thanks to the internet they have the basic model for 'crowd sourcing', 'data farming' and other forms of research. Online communities of 'netizens' continue to multiply and flourish, offering new perspectives on consumption, relationships, political participation and mass communication. The networks today seem ubiquitous and omnipotent: but do they represent a cultural revolution or a total regime change? And what do we understand of their history or their power? Who and what, finally, do the networks connect us to?

1: Welcome To The Labyrinth. 'We set great store by the welcome we receive - we have usually travelled a great distance to get there.' Perhaps the hardest labyrinth to get out of is the one you don't even realize you are in?


MON 23:15 Jazz on 3 (b00zm2rv)

Monteverdi lobbied hard to be put in charge of music at Mantua but he found the work stressful and underpaid, plus his unorthodox musical style was coming under fire. Presented by Donald Macleod.

TUE 19:00 Performance on 3 (b00zm4qz)
Halle - Britten, Delius, Berlioz

Presented by Petroc Trelawny

Mark Elder conducts the Halle in music centred around England and Italy. Two contrasting nautical works open the programme, with Britten's Sea Interludes evoking the wind-swept East Anglian coast and rapidly changing moods. In one of Delius's biggest achievements, Sea Drift, the words by Walt Whitman become a great paean to life, love and loss, rolling in waves of sound from choir, orchestra and baritone soloist. The scene shifts to Italy for Berlioz's symphonic interpretation of Byron's poem about a young man seeking solace and distraction abroad. The viola player Lawrence Power takes the title role in this gripping wordless drama.

Britten: Four Sea Interludes from Peter Grimes
Delius: Sea Drift

TUE 21:15 Night Waves (b00zm4r1)
Werner Herzog, Emma Rice, Holiday Camps

Matthew Sweet talks to legendary film director Werner Herzog about his latest documentary The Cave Of Forgotten Dreams. As well as his idiosyncratic feature films like Fitzcarraldo, Herzog has established a reputation for making distinctive documentaries about man's relationship with nature, notably the award-winning Grizzly Man. In the new film, Herzog takes his camera through the Chauvet Caves in southern France to the oldest rock art known and discovers the earliest form of cinema.

Jacques Demy's musical The Umbrellas Of Cherbourg is the latest movie to get the theatrical treatment, following on from the box-office success stories Legally Blonde and Dirty Dancing. The company behind the latest production memorably staged Brief Encounter in a West End cinema, combining film and live action to seamless effect. The director Emma Rice tells us her plans for Demy's candy-coloured fantasy which starred Catherine Deneuve and a memorable score by Michel LeGrand.

To celebrate Butlin's 75th birthday, Matthew talks to ex-Redcoat Roy Hudd and photographer Martin Parr who has edited a book of historic photographs which chronicle the heyday of the British holiday camps.

TUE 23:00 The Essay (b00zm4r3)
Requiem for Networks

Victorian Search Engines

Writer Ken Hollings unlocks the history, power and revolutionary change of our modern information networks.
Today the business and academic communities embrace the 'networks' with the same fervor they once showed the electronic media of the 1960s. Thanks to the internet they have the basic model for 'crowd sourcing', 'data farming' and other forms of research. Online communities of 'netizens' continue to multiply and flourish, offering new perspectives on consumption, relationships, political participation and mass communication. The networks today seem ubiquitous and omnipotent: but do they represent a cultural revolution or a total regime change? And what do we understand of their history or their power? Who and what, finally, do the networks connect us to?

2 'Victorian Search Engines.' Sherlock Holmes had his gazetteers, almanacs and timetables; the City had its Stock Exchange, the Parisians had their pneumatiques and Morse had his code; the early telegraph wires followed the existing network of railways throughout the country, receiving, storing and sending on information. All these examples indicate not just ways of distributing data but also ways of thinking. How much of our own thinking about networks has been influenced by the past?

BBC Symphony Orchestra - Rachmaninov, Walton

Presented by Petroc Trelawny

The BBC Symphony Orchestra continues its 80th anniversary season with two large-scale symphonic works. At the helm is Semyon Bychkov, a conductor much in demand worldwide. Konstantin Balmont's translation of Poe's The Bells inspired Rachmaninov to create one of his finest works, a scintillating 'choral symphony' first performed in 1913. The complete version of Walton's First Symphony, meanwhile, was introduced to the world by the BBC Symphony Orchestra in 1935. The troubled emotions in Walton's life at that time are reflected in the turbulence of the piece, before it reaches a jubilant conclusion.

Rachmaninov: The Bells
Walton: Symphony no.1 in B flat minor

WED 21:15 Night Waves (b00zm4xj)
Natural Disaster

When Ishiro Honda's 1954 film Gojira was released in Japan the monster that emerged from Tokyo Bay was destined to become one of film history's most enduring characters. This first Godzilla was a nuclear mutant from the nightmares not just of Nagasaki and Hiroshima but from the American Bikini Atoll atom bomb test only months earlier. The first Japanese fisherman who, far offshore in his Pacific hunting grounds had been enveloped in a cloud of radioactivity, was dead from radioactive poisoning, and 'atomic tuna' was being landed at the quayside. Audiences were reported to be watching the film in silence. In the aftermath of the almost biblical series of disasters that have descended on Japan over recent days Philip Dodd discusses the ways in which across history and culture we respond to the revenge of nature. Where do we go to come to terms with disaster when science no longer seems to hold enough answers to save us? How do those who live in parts of the world which are constantly on the verge of disaster through starvation or flooding, earthquake, drought or straightforward poverty accomodate the idea of natural disaster in their belief systems? That's the environmental writer Richard Hamblyn, historian Vinita Damadoran, James Marriott, of the organisation PLATFORM that combines arts & campaigning, the lecturer in Modern Japanese History Martin Dusinberre and engineering scientist Jian Guo Liu live on Night Waves with Philip Dodd.

Requiem for Networks

The Network Goes to War

Writer Ken Hollings unlocks the history, power and revolutionary change of our information networks.
3. The Network Goes To War. The Cold War armed the engines of information.

In the third of his essays, Ken Hollings looks at the impact of the Cold War in determining our information networks. In 1945 Vannevar Bush, the head of US scientific research during World War II, wrote an essay called 'As We May Think' - it argued that, thanks to intricate mass-produced components, a whole new generation of communication devices would soon come into existence. By 1991 CNN was able to transmit a live commentary on the opening salvoes of Operation Desert Storm from the Baghdad Hilton. And even as the cable news network was in its ascendancy and Iraqi Command and Control became paralyzed, the public was also learning about a new communication system called the 'Internet' being used by Kuwaiti citizens to contact the outside world. From Sputnik to the development of the World Wide Web, the Cold War has provided an ideal climate for the network to flourish - with a little help from Neil McElroy, the man responsible for inventing the soap opera.

Donizetti - Lucrezia Borgia

A young man falls in love with an older woman. So far so good. But -- oh dear -- the woman not only happens to be Lucrezia Borgia, that embodiment of evil and sexual depravity, but also is his mother. Things are bound to turn out badly, as indeed they do. Recorded last year at the Vienna State Opera, and starring legendary coloratura soprano Edita Gruberova in the title role as the woman with conflicted maternal instincts.

THU 21:15 Night Waves (b00zm50w)
Julian Baggini, Jennifer Egan, Donny George Obituary, UK Census

Rana Mitter talks to Jennifer Egan about her kaleidoscopic 'A Visit from the Goon Squad'. Influenced by Proust's A La Recherche Du Temps Perdu and The Sopranos television series, her book made several top ten lists for 2010 when it was published in America last year. On the eve of its publication here, the writer explains why even though it might look like a novel, it's not a novel, but something else entirely.

Philosopher Julian Baggini goes in search of the self; something that has been eluding philosophers (as well as psychologists and theologians) for thousands of years. In his book The Ego Trip he talks to members of the transgender community, alleged reincarnated Lamas and Dr Brooke Magnanti - better known as Belle de Jour.

Archaeologist Donny George, who has died aged 60, was the key figure who defended the Iraq National Museum in Baghdad from looters, following the 2003 invasion of allied forces. He then led a successful campaign to recover stolen artefacts. Colleagues and friends Elizabeth Stone and Roger John Matthews look back at his life and achievements.

And as the deadline for filling in your census form arrives, Danny Dorling's new book 'So You Think You Know About Britain' reveals empirical evidence that contradicts many common assumptions about British society. He talks about what we should really be asking every person in Britain.

THU 23:00 The Essay (b00zm50y)
Requiem for Networks

I'll Be Your Orange Juice

Writer Ken Hollings unlocks the history & revolutionary power of our information networks.
4: 'I'll Be Your Orange Juice.' Netizens, prepare to get intimate with the inanimate.

In his penultimate Essay on our information networks, Ken Hollings, examines Netizens. From spotting craters on Mars to identifying images in museum archives, it seems that there is no longer a problem that can't be solved simply by throwing enough people at it. Social networks, online communities, multiplayer games, open-source projects and long-tail marketing are all examples of how the masses of the 20th century have been replaced by 'the crowd' of today. The networked 'wisdom of crowds' continues to evolve - from Second Life to MySpace and from Facebook to Twitter. These, however, are nothing compared to the personal relationships the netizen of the future will enter into with inanimate objects: ID chips and complex barcodes embedded in products will allow you to interact with the contents of the supermarket shelf, establishing a social network of things. Don't look now but that carton of orange juice just called you by name.

FRI 23:00 The Essay (b00zm53n)
Requiem for Networks

Heads in the Clouds

Writer Ken Hollings unlocks the history and revolutionary power of our modern information networks.

Today the business and academic communities embrace the 'networks' with the same fervor they once showed the electronic media of the 1960s. Thanks to the internet they have the basic model for 'crowd sourcing', 'data farming' and other forms of research. Online communities of 'netizens' continue to multiply and flourish, offering new perspectives on consumption, relationships, political participation and mass communication. The networks today seem ubiquitous and omnipotent: but do they represent a cultural revolution or a total regime change? And what do we understand of their history or their power? Who and what, finally, do the networks connect us to?

5 'Heads in the Clouds'

In his final essay, Ken Hollings looks at the implications of the latest information networks.
From the earliest centralized networks, when all roads led to and from Rome, to the decentralized networks of the European Enlightenment all the way through the distributed networks of the nuclear age, our paths have never stayed the same for very long. The networks might soon be replaced by 'cloud computing', a method of data storage which will allow you to access data from any terminal, anywhere, at any time. The meteorological metaphor seems appropriate: as data becomes another constantly-shifting element in our global environment. But doesn't being anywhere also mean being nowhere?


FRI 23:15 World on 3 (b00zm53q)

Mary Ann Kennedy presents a trio of Senegalese brothers in session, Les Frères Guissé. The three brothers Djiby, Cheik and Aliou Guissé originate from the Fouta Tooro area in the North of Senegal.

Plus new music from around the globe.
